What makes you think all these geographical entries that you've marked are encyclopedic?--Brett 17:38, 27 November 2008 (UTC)

Bot problems[change]

Your bot is adding incorrect interwiki links, so I've temporarily blocked it. See:

Are these your test edits? The Africa ones were wrong... · Tygrrr... 18:34, 20 February 2009 (UTC)
It looks like everything is working now. ѕwirlвoy  18:35, 20 February 2009 (UTC)
"Now" meaning you think the Africa ones were right? Or "now" meaning you've fixed the problem that added incorrect interwiki to Africa? · Tygrrr... 18:37, 20 February 2009 (UTC)
The latter. I apologize for the inconvenience. Please alert me if anything else happens. ѕwirlвoy  18:39, 20 February 2009 (UTC)
Sure. Let's run a few more tests today, and if everything's looking good, go ahead and request a flag from Brett. · Tygrrr... 18:47, 20 February 2009 (UTC)
I'm not sure if I should. I don't want to be AFK with my bot going crazy and making you all work. ѕwirlвoy  18:49, 20 February 2009 (UTC)
You shouldn't run it while AFK even if you think it's working perfectly, imo. It's clearly still got some bugs since it just re-added the incorrect iw to Africa. If we can get it working properly, the flag will be necessary to not flood the new changes page. But you shouldn't take it as a seal of approval to run it when you're not around to watch. Thanks! :-) · Tygrrr... 18:58, 20 February 2009 (UTC)

*ping* I replied to you on my talk page and I've got a question there for you. Thanks.· Tygrrr... 19:25, 20 February 2009 (UTC)

Eh, it's fine. ѕwirlвoy  19:28, 20 February 2009 (UTC)

The bot's still having the Africa/africa problem.--Brett 01:54, 21 February 2009 (UTC)

I have blocked your bot for 1 day due to the problems that it is still having. I wish that I did not have to do this, however, due to the high amount of reverts to correct edits, I believe that it is the best course of action at this point in time. Please try to get the problem fixed before the block ends. The next time that your bot doesn't work properly, it might have to be blocked for a longer period of time.
