I've decided to take over, as O (bot) hasn't done this task since February 14, and the operator seems to be busy and/or inactive.  Hazard-SJ  ✈  06:49, 24 February 2013 (UTC)

Discussion[edit]

I wonder why there are so many insertions of same header? Did you just debug script? --EugeneZelenko (talk) 16:02, 24 February 2013 (UTC)
Looks like the bot inserts the header hourly rather than daily. Hazard-SJ, if you are testing to bot before the request is granted please do it supervised. This is not a particularly disruptive case though and easy to fix. --Dschwen (talk) 17:19, 24 February 2013 (UTC)
I fixed the issue. I fixed the crontab.  Hazard-SJ  ✈  03:44, 25 February 2013 (UTC)
Just in case there are any further issues, the bot now checks User:Hazard-Bot/Check/Villagepump (see instructions) before attempting to append the header, and checks if the header is already on the page.  Hazard-SJ  ✈  04:21, 25 February 2013 (UTC)
Well, ok, please test (block is expired). If this works as advertised then I see no reason not to approve this task. --Dschwen (talk) 17:39, 25 February 2013 (UTC)
