Pi BotEdit


Hallo Mike,

why do you create a new items seconds after the creation of a new article? In many cases these articles may not survive due to several reasons. In this case the notabilty might be questioned due to his age. --Bahnmoeller (talk) 10:00, 13 February 2020 (UTC)

@Bahnmoeller: The script runs hourly, it's unusual that it catches an article within seconds. It checks to make sure that the article hasn't been created by a new editor (<200 edits), and isn't currently nominated for deletion. In this case, the item seems to be fine, both here and on dewp. That said, I want to investigate cases where this script hasn't worked so well (articles or items deleted) to improve it, so if you can point me towards problematic items/articles then I'd appreciate it. Thanks. Mike Peel (talk) 17:25, 14 February 2020 (UTC)


Hi there, your bot got the wrong sport when it did this edit. I'm not sure how it thought she is an Association footballer, there is nothing in the article to suggest that. The-Pope (talk) 15:17, 17 February 2020 (UTC)

@The-Pope: It uses the Wikidata information about the categories to get the occupation. In this case Category:Australian rules footballers from Victoria (Australia) (Q8278102) had an error in it, which is now fixed. Thanks. Mike Peel (talk) 15:21, 17 February 2020 (UTC)
Great, thanks. I'd seen the error before, but didn't raise it, just fixed it. Glad you found the root cause. Cheers, The-Pope (talk) 15:26, 17 February 2020 (UTC)
