Rename on sqwiki_p[edit]

Your request for rename sq:User:Kompjuteri in sq:User:タチコマ robot has been accepted. Regards. --  eagleal  15:29, 11 July 2008 (UTC)

Bad bot edit[edit]

With this edit your bot put the redirect in the category instead of redirecting it to the category. It needs a : in front of the Category. Please have your bot fix all that it has incorrectly edited this way. --Pmsyyz (talk) 05:01, 26 July 2008 (UTC)

A redirect from gallery to category namespace itslef is problematic and should not be ever done as it causes problems like the one you have mentioned. A {{softredirect}} or {{category redirect}} should have been used. This is a user error not a bot error I believe. -- Cat ちぃ? 11:20, 26 July 2008 (UTC)
What's problematic about such a redirect other than the fact that your bot doesn't understand it? The point is that your bot can be adjusted to not cause the problem of adding redirect pages to categories because of bad assumptions. If a double redirect is ending up at a "category:", simply add a colon before the bot inserted redirect location. Will you not do so? Neither of those templates fit this type of redirect. --Pmsyyz (talk) 02:10, 27 July 2008 (UTC)
Firstly I have indirect control to my bots code. This is because I use the SVN feed. I may point this to the people with SVN access per your request but the below issue still stands I think.
Secondly hard redirects on categories are discouraged. This has been the consensus to my knowledge. For categories we use soft redirects (ex Category:Car).

Featured picture categories[edit]

Hi White Cat, it was nice to meet you in Alexandria. Now, down to business. I am not too convinced that your work with Category:Featured picture of the year and its child categories is a very good idea. Category:Featured picture of the year (candidate) is going to be more or less exactly equal with Category:Featured pictures (no wait, now it's Category:Featured pictures on Wikimedia Commons thanks to you...! Not good to break long-existing convention like that you know!), and the other subcats are so sparsely updated that they are better suited as galleries. Did you discuss any of these ideas anywhere before implementing them? --pfctdayelise (说什么?) 19:35, 26 July 2008 (UTC)

Hi, it was nice meeting you too (although it was rather brief :)).
I do want to point out I have pretty much completely abandoned commons. You are free to revert anything and everything I made thus far if you desire. I wont object. I do not see Category:Featured pictures or POTY or any other "quality" metric we have here as anything remotely useful anymore.
I did my best here at commons as per COM:MELLOW#Remember... but I received hostility in return. Hence why I decided to leave commons until it is repaired back to how it used to be. This community has became more hostile than en.wikipedia.
I am sorry if this wasn't a satisfactory answer but I am sadly really tired of this project.
-- Cat ちぃ? 14:21, 29 July 2008 (UTC)
That said... If you need technical help, I can provide that. I have a bot after all... -- Cat ちぃ? 10:41, 31 July 2008 (UTC)

Your request on lb-wikipedia[edit]

Hello White Cat,

concerning your request on lb:Benotzer Diskussioun:Briséis#Computer → タチコマ robot I just want to take your attention to the point that User:Briséis is for months not active on lb-wikipedia and that there is for the moment no bureaucrat on lb-wikipedia. So I guess It might be more useful to adress your requesst to one of the stewards e.g. User:Thogo

with best regards from lb-wikipedia lb:User:Robby — Preceding unsigned comment added by 78.141.140.207 (talk • contribs) --Robby (talk) 11:15, 11 July 2008 (UTC)
