Article quality ratings moving into banner shell[edit]

This is just to let the bot operators know that a change in Template:WikiProject banner shell and Template:WPBannerMeta was made today that allows people to enter the class rating in the banner shell template, and this will then be inherited by all project banners on that page (unless they have opted out). The assessment categories should be unaffected, so I'm not sure if any changes to the bot's code will be needed. Best wishes — Martin (MSGJ · talk) 13:51, 27 March 2023 (UTC)[reply]

I don't think anyone monitors this page but this report didn't get generated this evening. Several other bots that issue reports on a regular basis haven't been active tonight so maybe it's a system problem. But I wanted to report this somewhere. Thanks, whoever reads this. Liz Read!

MusikAnimal, I saw you responded to one message on this page so maybe you could look at what's been published here since last year. Or you could tell us who to notify when there are problems with this bot. Liz Read! Talk! 05:19, 3 April 2023 (UTC)[reply]
If other bots are failing too, it's probably the scheduled downtime. I wouldn't be concerned unless tomorrow comes and we still don't get a fresh report. Moving forward you can refer to User:Community Tech bot on who to contact, so in this case you contacted the right person :) Best, MusikAnimal talk 17:37, 3 April 2023 (UTC)[reply]

Wikipedia:Database reports/WikiProject Andhra Pradesh[edit]

@MusikAnimal and others in charge of this bot, I am researching WikiProject Andhra Pradesh to propose a method of increasing the activity by looking at popular pages, top edited pages. I already made a request for popular pages. If you can provide edit database report for on a monthly basis, at least for top 1000 pages,with count of edits and preferably count of not-IP, not-bot,not-AWB editors, it would be helpful. Thanks in advance. Arjunaraoc (talk) 01:01, 28 April 2023 (UTC)[reply]

@Arjunaraoc: - fyi, I moved Andhra Pradesh "Popular articles" page to "Popular pages" so it matches the Bot configuration. Also, changed the WP's wikilink to now point to "Popular pages". Unfortunately due to that name/spelling error, the bot missed running this month. I added a note to expect a good PP list from the Bot for mid-June 2023.

@JoeNMLC, Thanks Arjunaraoc (talk) 04:59, 11 May 2023 (UTC)[reply]
@Arjunaraoc: - Today the bot successfully created the WikiProject Andhra Pradesh assessment table. Thank you for your patience. Cheers! JoeNMLC (talk) 20:10, 7 July 2023 (UTC)[reply]

This is good for research[edit]

Very interesting how this "bot" has operated. (talk) 00:28, 7 September 2023 (UTC)[reply]

What is the process to remove a self proclaimed bot such as this?[edit]

Why are bots even being used or accepted? (talk) 00:33, 7 September 2023 (UTC)[reply]

Popular pages subpages?[edit]

Hey, just wondering and don't want to be greedy.  ;) I love lists like for example Wikipedia:WikiProject Role-playing games/Popular pages as it gives me a good idea of what people are looking at. There are times though, when I look through lists like that thinking "I'd like to see what articles of just this subset people are looking at" and they may not be the most popular items overall so they will appear towards the bottom of the list, and it's tough to filter out all the noise. If we already have the main Popular pages list for a WikiProject, is it possible to just do subsets for particular larger categories and all of their subcategories? Such as maybe the top 200 from Category:Role-playing games by year, the top 200 of Category:Role-playing game supplements by year and the top 100 from Category:Role-playing game designers?

Sorry - I archived the first post by mistake[edit]

That darn auto-archiver confused me, and it's not the first time. I thought I was going to check out the archive. Please accept my humble apology. Stefen Towers among the rest! GabGruntwerk 08:29, 5 October 2023 (UTC)[reply]

This bot generally produces this report at 05:02 UTC like clockwork but it didn't today. Just thought I'd alert y'all in case anyone monitors this talk page. Liz Read! Talk! 05:27, 13 November 2023 (UTC)[reply]

I'm wondering if the bot could filter out articles marked with {{Plant common name}} or any version of {{Set index article}} as they are essentially identical to dab pages? Just Step Sideways from this world ..... today 22:45, 10 May 2024 (UTC)[reply]

Pinging @MusikAnimal (WMF): as apparently the person to talk to about this. Just Step Sideways from this world ..... today 22:50, 10 May 2024 (UTC)[reply]
@Just Step Sideways If they look like dab pages and act like dab pages, why not make them proper dab pages? At cursory glance it looks like we just need to add __DISAMBIG__ to {{dmbox}} in the same place it puts the page in Category:All disambiguation pages. MusikAnimal (WMF) (talk) 00:33, 11 May 2024 (UTC)[reply]
I mean, can't say I didn't have the same thought, I'm not sure I had seen these templates before today. I guess I assumed that there was some good reason they are tagged that way. Just Step Sideways from this world ..... today 00:46, 11 May 2024 (UTC)[reply]

Popular pages reports behind schedule[edit]

Normally a popular pages report (like here) would have gone through its monthly update days ago. Any idea when this will be back up and running? Stefen Towers among the rest! GabGruntwerk 22:04, 14 May 2024 (UTC)[reply]

I've copied this message to Meta. Stefen Towers among the rest! GabGruntwerk 22:07, 14 May 2024 (UTC)[reply]
