Back to using Bot-Jagwar


Hi Jagwar. I see that you have gone back to using your bot to copy en.wikt entries to create low-quality entries on mg.wikt, like mg:wikt:شبكة. If anyone wanted to actually use a Malagasy-Arabic dictionary, this would be useless to them — it doesn't even have the vowels! Meanwhile, it is obvious that you have not looked at the page, because there are multiple en.wikt templates that are just broken links at mg.wikt. I thought the RFC was enough to show you that making a large number of low-quality entries does not improve the wiki. Why are you going back on your word?

I wanted to add that not only are going back to bot-adding broken entries full of mistakes that you will never even check, but they way you are doing so appears to be a copyright violation. Metaknowledge (talk) 18:52, 18 August 2021 (UTC)Reply
And still bot-creating broken, unusable entries like wikt:mg:dummum that are copied from en.wikt without attribution. Metaknowledge (talk) 16:24, 4 October 2021 (UTC)Reply
@Jagwar: Please stop this. Mx. Granger (talk) 20:11, 4 October 2021 (UTC)Reply

Please don't lie to us. You are continuing to use your bot to create low-quality and incorrect entries just as you did before. If you don't care about the quality of the Malagasy Wiktionary, the least you could do is admit that. Metaknowledge (talk) 23:14, 20 December 2021 (UTC)Reply
@Metaknowledge: and others, I am not lying to you. I am spending a lot of time fixing things now, while being a lot more cautious on what to create. And no, the entries you see being created right now are of much better quality than you've seen before, and they don't infringe on your copyright. —Jagwar • grrrr... / homewiki 23:26, 20 December 2021 (UTC)Reply
I suggest turning off the bot and writing entries with human-checked definitions instead. Machine-translated entries without human checking are too unreliable to be useful. Mx. Granger (talk) 10:24, 21 December 2021 (UTC)Reply
So you prefer to have typos and mistakes from a burnt out human instead? —Jagwar • grrrr... / homewiki 10:35, 21 December 2021 (UTC)Reply
I prefer to have minimal mistakes. If you are burnt out, I suggest taking a break. Please turn off the bot. Mx. Granger (talk) 10:37, 21 December 2021 (UTC)Reply
