Delisting nominations[edit]

FPCBot just closed Commons:Featured picture candidates/removal/File:Panorámica de Las Médulas.jpg early. Could you tell the bot to ignore any FPC that begins with "Commons:Featured picture candidates/removal"? Thanks. -- King of ♠ 01:38, 25 November 2013 (UTC)

FPCBot seems down[edit]

FPCBot seems down; probably lost its login credentials on software update. Please check. Jee 02:54, 8 January 2014 (UTC)

Thanks for reporting. I logged it in again. Doing a run right now... /Daniel78 (talk) 08:29, 8 January 2014 (UTC)
Thanks. Jee 08:42, 8 January 2014 (UTC)

And again. --A.Savin 15:46, 8 February 2014 (UTC)

Thanks again for reporting. Fixed now. /Daniel78 (talk) 10:09, 10 February 2014 (UTC)

Bot didn't run in the evening (15 CET). Down? Jee 15:23, 12 March 2014 (UTC)

Had to type the password again. Wonder why this happen more often now. Anyway a new run ongoing now. /Daniel78 (talk) 08:53, 13 March 2014 (UTC)
Thanks. I think it happens when software updates going on the WMF servers (?). Jee 09:21, 13 March 2014 (UTC)

Bot seems down again. Jee 14:53, 11 April 2014 (UTC)

Sorry for the delay - was travelling. Password needed again, would be really good to automate the login when that happens. /Daniel78 (talk) 13:19, 21 April 2014 (UTC)
Thanks; I too away for a week. :) Jee 04:04, 22 April 2014 (UTC)

Again. --A.Savin 10:14, 22 May 2014 (UTC)

Fixed. /Daniel78 (talk) 11:08, 22 May 2014 (UTC)

Seems down, again. Jee 06:36, 22 June 2014 (UTC)

You've a mail. Jee 06:28, 26 June 2014 (UTC)
I have started it up again. Sorry for the delay, on vacation atm. I really think the bot needs a co-owner when I am away. I saw you mentioned it in the mail, however I can't share the credentials for the machine it's currently running on. I think we should look into getting it up and running on a wikimedia server instead of my own machine. Any help with that would benefit us all I think :) /Daniel78 (talk) 17:08, 26 June 2014 (UTC)
Thanks. Pinging Dschwen for opinion. Jee 17:17, 26 June 2014 (UTC)
Hi Daniel, that bot should run on tool-labs. I'd be happy to co-maintain it (not like I'm the world's most responsive bot operator... but I'll try to help out). --Dschwen (talk) 20:57, 26 June 2014 (UTC)
Hi Dschwen, I am back from vacation now. Thanks for wanting to help out. So how do we go about setting it up to run on tool-labs ? /Daniel78 (talk) 06:49, 15 July 2014 (UTC)
Do you have an account on labs yet? I can start by setting up a tools project (once you have an account I'll add you to it). --Dschwen (talk) 17:39, 19 July 2014 (UTC)
Go here to sign up and let me know your username. The toolsproject for FPC bot is fpcbot. It is of course still empty. --Dschwen (talk) 17:43, 19 July 2014 (UTC)
Thanks Dschwen, I created an account there now with the same username as here. /Daniel78 (talk) 06:48, 21 July 2014 (UTC)
Hm, I don;t see that username in the list yet. I'll add you to the project as soon as it becomes available. In the mean time, try logging onto tools-login on labs. Once you are added to the fpcbot project you can switch to it by entering "become fpcbot" on the command line. You'll need to transfer your fpcbot files onto teh fpcbot project. --Dschwen (talk) 19:56, 21 July 2014 (UTC)
Dschwen I tried ssh to and but none allows me in. I uploaded my ssh key as in the instructions. Any ideas ? /Daniel78 (talk) 14:03, 22 July 2014 (UTC)
I suggest you visit the IRC channel #wikimedia-labs and ask if your account creation was successful (I'm not familiar with the mode of account creation nowadays. I signed up way over a year ago when the account creation was still manual). --Dschwen (talk) 15:41, 22 July 2014 (UTC)

Seems down, again. Jee 06:37, 28 July 2014 (UTC)

Fixed. /Daniel78 (talk) 06:43, 28 July 2014 (UTC)

Fixed. /Daniel78 (talk) 13:37, 5 December 2014 (UTC)
Thanks restarting it. A question. At the bottom of the FPC page, there is currently a delist-and-replace nomination, which has not been confirmed yet regarding closure (but it is a clear delist-and-replace). How does one actually confirm such a nomination? It is not explained in Commons:Featured picture candidates/What to do after voting is finished. -- Slaunger (talk) 22:43, 5 December 2014 (UTC)
Slaunger, it seems that someone did it manually now. The instructions for that is here. /Daniel78 (talk) 09:04, 9 December 2014 (UTC)


Hi, I noticed you have set up User:MiszaBot to archive your talk page. Unfortunately, the bot has stopped working, and given how its operator is inactive, it is unclear when/if this will fixed. For the time being, I have volunteered to operate a MiszaBot clone (running the exact same code). With that said, your input would be appreciated at Commons:Bots/Requests/ArchiveBot 1.

Com-nom parameter[edit]

Hi Daniel seventy eight, is it possible for FPCBot to include the com-nom parameter upon picture promotion? -- Rillke(q?) 12:14, 31 July 2014 (UTC)

Hi Rillke - there should already be such code, see this line. Does it not work ? /Daniel78 (talk) 06:44, 12 August 2014 (UTC)
Oh, I see it was an old FPCBot edit. Sorry for bothering. -- Rillke(q?) 20:31, 12 August 2014 (UTC)
com-nom is OK; but it adds "File:" prefix which generates errors. I think it is a small unforeseen error because "subpage" needs "File:" prefix; but "com-nom" doesn't. Jee 07:24, 17 August 2014 (UTC)

Commons:Featured picture candidates/File:Thunderstorms on the Brazilian Horizon.jpg[edit]

Hi Daniel78, is it possible to forbid FPCBot the removing of my renomination? Thank you! --Ras67 (talk) 15:19, 11 August 2014 (UTC)

Hi Ras67. The bot does not support renominations, you need to create a new one. /Daniel78 (talk) 06:49, 12 August 2014 (UTC)
