MABOT question


Hi MarcoAurelio , I have a question concerning MABOT, which is a BOT you operate, I think?

I just saw at wq:an that MABOT archived some text in this edit and was wondering why template collapse top was removed from the top of the following section by MABOT. Thanks in advance, Ottawahitech (talk) 14:37, 21 May 2022 (UTC)Reply

Hello @Ottawahitech. This is because the script archives everything found between sections. Given that {{collapse top}} was added before the == Merge ip edits to user account == header, the script assumed that the template was part of the inactive topic being archived and acted accordingly. I am afraid I am not able to alter that behaviour myself. If needed a Task can be filed to propose changes to the script's behaviour, or simply add such templates after the section title.

About expanding bots to WQ:VIP and WQ:VP


I'm deeply sorry for not noticing you before using the bot, sorry a lot for in such a hasty way. We had a consensus of archiving following pages, such as Wikiquote:Administrators' noticeboard, WQ:VIP and WQ:VP. And I found that the archive pages of WQ:VP is not subpages, where bot may not run properly. Sorry for all the disruption I made. Lemonaka (talk) 21:06, 5 March 2023 (UTC)Reply

Hi @Lemonaka - There's no disruption nor nothing wrong or to be sorry about :-) I'll make some changes in the bot configuration today or tomorrow so WQ:VP gets automatically archived too. --MarcoAurelio (talk) 21:16, 5 March 2023 (UTC)Reply
Hello again @Lemonaka and CC @Ferien (as admin): The bot has been configured as requested and I've tweaked the page config a bit. Please archive in Wikiquote:Village pump archive 61 (it's sysop protected so my bot can't edit) all VP threads that started before January 2023 (that is: all threads from top until Wikiquote:Village_pump#Cite_Q_template included) and then update the User:MABot/config pseudotemplate counter number to 62. After that I'll test-run the bot again. Thank you for your assistance. Sincerely, --MarcoAurelio (talk) 14:24, 6 March 2023 (UTC)Reply
Y Done. Thanks, --Ferien (talk) 15:54, 11 March 2023 (UTC)Reply
Thank you. It may take a while before it starts working unless someone can come with a quick code fix. Best regards, --MarcoAurelio (talk) 22:33, 11 March 2023 (UTC)Reply
A workaround was found and the bot will now archive the VP as requested. --MarcoAurelio (talk) 11:36, 28 March 2023 (UTC)Reply

About expanding bots to Wikiquote talk:SheSaid


Hello, under the request of @DeirgeDel and considering the heavy backlog of Wikiquote talk:SheSaid, I'm trying to expand MAbot to that page. Hope you permit me doing so and thank you. Lemonaka (talk) 00:07, 28 March 2023 (UTC)Reply

Hello @Lemonaka. As long as the page bears the User:MABot/config pseudotemplate correctly configured MABot will archive it according to said configuration, and does not require my approval, except for cases in which archives are not subpages of the root page to be archived. As you can see at Special:Diff/3273505, the bot archived the talk according to the parametres you indicated. Best regards, --MarcoAurelio (talk) 11:19, 28 March 2023 (UTC)Reply
