Bots noticeboard

This is a message board for coordinating and discussing bot-related issues on Wikipedia (also including other programs interacting with the MediaWiki software). Although this page is frequented mainly by bot owners, any user is welcome to leave a message or join the discussion here.

For non-urgent issues or bugs with a bot, a message should be left on the bot operator's talk page. If discussion with the operator does not resolve the issue or the problem is urgent and widespread, the problem can be reported by following the steps outlined in WP:BOTISSUE. This is not the place for requests for bot approvals or requesting that tasks be done by a bot. General questions about the MediaWiki software (such as the use of templates, etc.) should be asked at Wikipedia:Village pump (technical).

Incomplete FACs[edit]

Is there a bot to detect incomplete or untranscluded WP:FAC nominations? For example, Wikipedia:Featured article candidates/List of Bath City F.C. seasons/archive1 and Wikipedia:Featured article candidates/List of Bath City F.C. managers/archive1. I commented on these because their articles were on my watchlist, so I noticed the addition of the {{featured article candidates}}. Perhaps I should have checked that it had been set up properly. --Redrose64 🌹 (talk) 17:42, 9 September 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]

I believe FACBot does this. Nikkimaria (talk) 18:18, 9 September 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]
Thank you, I shall watch out for what it does overnight. --Redrose64 🌹 (talk) 20:24, 9 September 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]

AIV bot is down again(?)[edit]

User:HBC AIV helperbot5 isn't removing blocked editors from WP:AIV, but it's still editing WP:UAA and WP:AIV/TB2. It just removed the backlog notice after EvergreenFir manually removed some entries. – dudhhr talkcontribssheher 16:19, 11 September 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]

It's working again. – dudhhr talkcontribssheher 16:57, 11 September 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Your wiki will be in read-only soon[edit]
