Minor issue in ukwiki (2)[edit]

Hi, I'm here again, same issue as before: bot continues to use "листопадааа" instead of "листопада" for November. Recent instances: [1], [2], [3], [4]. Thanks for your time. -- Ата (talk) 20:14, 5 November 2019 (UTC)

Ата, yea, sorry, I haven't had much opportunity to look into this. But it's on my todo list.—CYBERPOWER (Chat) 13:45, 16 November 2019 (UTC)

Bot marks some available links as unavailable[edit]

Hi, your bot marks links to Scopus as unavailable, because at first visit (or sometimes) it asks authentication on freely available page, but after reload it is available. For example here. We have lots of pages with such links, can you please put links on Scopus in exceptions or something?--Igor Balashov (talk) 12:44, 6 November 2019 (UTC)

Igor Balashov, hi to make things easier, you can use this tool to report false positives.—CYBERPOWER (Chat) 13:48, 16 November 2019 (UTC)

InternetArchiveBot setup and requirements[edit]

I am trying to test InternetArchiveBot for use in a private wiki. Is the bot hardcoded for Wikipedia only? How do I specify the wiki address, setup the bot account on the wiki, etc.?

I have read the documentation page at Is this the only documentation page? It would be great to write a requirements section. Like does it require a MySQL database, Apache web server, and what else?

daw5423 (talk) 19:56, 6 November 2019 (UTC)

Daw5423, Hi there. No IABot is not hardcoded to Wikipedia only, but I do admit documentation is lacking. I have plans to throughly document the bot, but just haven't gotten to it. You need at least PHP 7, a web server, composer, a MySQL DB, and your wiki requires the latest version of OAuth to be installed in your wiki. PHP requires the intl, mysqli, and curl modules, and I recommend getting a SOCKS5 proxy in place that the bot can use to check onion URLs. If you are using a non-english localization, I recommend the machine the bot is running on, has the date locales for the relevant language you are using installed. Once you have the environment setup, let me know and I'll guide you to installing the bot and configuring it.—CYBERPOWER (Chat) 13:55, 16 November 2019 (UTC)
Thanks, I have those software installed. I don't think I need the SOCKS5 proxy for onion sites. What do I configure on the bot? daw5423 (talk) 17:51, 16 November 2019 (UTC)
Daw5423, Obviously you will need a bot account on enwiki. You will need to set up an owner-only consumer for the bot. Make sure to note down the keys. You are only given them once. You also need to setup an OAuth consumer that allows the bot basic editing rights on behalf of a user's account with the ability to edit through protection. Make sure to note down those keys.
Once you have that setup, copy the variables out of and place them into a new file called Do the same for Move the root IABot directory to wherever you want to put it, and the respective www folder wherever your web service access files to the public. If IABot files aren't directly above the www folder, you will also need to create a setpath.php file in the root www folder defining the variable $path. Set it to point to the root folder of IABot's main files. I recommend using a relative path, relative the setpath.php file's location. When you have that ready, let me know.

Tewiki iabot deployment followup - 2nd reminder[edit]

I contacted on 25 Oct through your talk page. Here is another gentle reminder.

Hello Cyberpower678,

As only minor verification step is pending for iabot deployment on Telugu wikpedia, may i request your quick response to the change. Thanks --Arjunaraoc (talk) 15:57, 7 November 2019 (UTC)

Arjunaraoc, I'll take a look at it later today or tomorrow. Sorry for the delay.—CYBERPOWER (Chat) 13:56, 16 November 2019 (UTC)

Inaccurate edit summary[edit]

... The following InternetArchiveBot edit to American Motors has the summary "Rescuing 2 sources and tagging 0 as dead.", yet the action performed was adding 2 archive sources and tagging 2 as dead... (talk) 15:37, 21 October 2019 (UTC)

There is nothing inaccurate with the edit summary. The source was rescued and the dead flag set to make the archive link be dominant in the reference. There is nothing wrong here.—CYBERPOWER (Trick or Treat) 22:22, 24 October 2019 (UTC)

From the response, I can only apologise for hurting your feelings with my use of the term "Inaccurate". (talk) 23:01, 7 November 2019 (UTC)

I can't tell if you're being sarcastic or not, but my feelings were not hurt.—CYBERPOWER (Chat) 13:56, 16 November 2019 (UTC)

RfA precentages[edit]

Hi Cyberpower678. I would like to get your thoughts on the idea of adding a percentage calculation (and possibly color coded) to User:Cyberpower678/Tally or Template:RfX tally. This would provide a snapshot of each candidate's current performance with respect to the pass/fail/crat chat ranges, similar to User:Cyberpower678/RfX Report. - MrX 🖋 12:36, 10 November 2019 (UTC)

MrX, sure, why not?—CYBERPOWER (Chat) 13:57, 16 November 2019 (UTC)
Thanks for your response Cyberpower678. I look forward to seeing the change on a future RfA page. Please let me know if I can help in any way (I'm not a template editor). - MrX 🖋 15:18, 16 November 2019 (UTC)

Tp the history of the Skyscraper[edit]

Regarding the history of the skyscraper. There needs to be an addition of Leland Tower (aka Leland Hotel as it was originally). It was the first skyscraper outside of Chicago in 1928.It was built before the Chrysler Building and the Empire State Building. It also encompasses the idea of the skeleton construction as created by William Le Baron Jenney. In 1926 it was presented to Chicago architects Graven and Mayger, who had worked with Rapp and Rapp with the design of the Chicago Theater. Graven and Mayger were known for their theater designs but Leland was their first tall building as a partnership. Leland was completed in February 1928. Leland had details that you would have seen in the theaters of that time period. It was a hotel with a ballroom on the topmost floor called "The Sky Club", it is now apartments owned by David Karademas. — Preceding unsigned comment added by Tracy Duran (talkcontribs) 18:12, 10 November 2019 (UTC)

Tracy Duran I'm not exactly sure what you're talking about. I don't work with Skyscraper articles.—CYBERPOWER (Chat) 13:59, 16 November 2019 (UTC)

MrX, sorry about that. For some reason, I'm not being alerted to talk page messages. :/. I've unarchived your thread and commented further up.—CYBERPOWER (Chat) 14:02, 16 November 2019 (UTC)

I have a crush...[edit]

I have a crush on User:InternetArchiveBot. My favorite bot ever. Just thought I say that and thanks! --- Coffeeandcrumbs 12:52, 13 November 2019 (UTC)

AFD template removal[edit]

Hi, Apologies, Birgit Maass AFD template totally removed in error. Not sure how. Battleofalma (talk) 15:19, 15 November 2019 (UTC)
