Cyberbot I

Cyberbot I clerked Resource: Changing username/Simple#Hey now, you're an editor -> MC-123 as if the user's name were "Hey now" stopping before the comma.

My previous request about the bot's handling of "Newname" got archived without any response - User talk:Cyberpower678/Archive 74#Newname. Regards, Cabayi (talk) 09:46, 26 October 2020 (UTC)

Cabayi, I'll take a look when I can, but it's a low priority for me right now. --CYBERPOWER (Chat) 18:59, 11 November 2020 (UTC)
Also, it clerked User:Aron alexis cubas jara as a non-existent user. Cabayi (talk) 21:04, 19 November 2020 (UTC)
Cabayi, because it doesn't actually exist on this wiki. --CYBERPOWER (Around) 16:50, 24 November 2020 (UTC)
The account had 2 edits to WP:CHUS at the time of clerking - Special:Permalink/989544298#Aron alexis cubas jara -> AlbeyroBamBam and the malformed section above. It definitely existed. Cabayi (talk) 18:37, 24 November 2020 (UTC)

Cyberbot adding duplicate templates

Example: [1]]; note that {{pp-pc1}} is a redirect to {{pp-pc}}--Ymblanter (talk) 19:39, 15 January 2021 (UTC)

Same or similar problem found in Germany national football team article, first here shortly followed by this. I believe this change should be done in one step instead of two so as to not confuse editors about Cyberbot II's intent. Cordially, History DMZ (talk)+(ping) 03:10, 16 January 2021 (UTC)
I have seen the same problem when reviewing pending changes - at first I thought that the bot had made no mistake, but seeing this I would also like to attest to this problem. See this diff, which shows the same problem: [2]. Also, I would like to report this diff where Cyberbot removed {{pp-pc1}} even though per the logs. P,TO 19104 (talk) (contribs) 20:17, 16 January 2021 (UTC)
P,TO 19104, I rebooted the VM it's on. It appears to be affecting all tasks of both bots. Looks like a transient network issue here. --CYBERPOWER (Chat) 14:55, 18 January 2021 (UTC)

Stuck bot at metawiki

Hello, I just gave your bot a 31 hrs long block at metawiki, because it's apparently malfunctioning - it made over 500 edits at [3] with no apparent reason. Could you please fix that issue? Thanks, --Martin Urbanec (talk) 23:27, 16 January 2021 (UTC)

Martin Urbanec, I rebooted the VM. --CYBERPOWER (Chat) 14:56, 18 January 2021 (UTC)

Cyberbot II blanking

Just to let you know, Cyberbot II blanked America's Next Top Model (season 22) here. --Bruce1eetalk 14:03, 17 January 2021 (UTC)

Ditto Harry Potter and the Philosopher's Stone page was blanked ("Removing Pp-pc1. Page is not protected"). Esowteric + Talk + Breadcrumbs 18:35, 17 January 2021 (UTC)

Cyberpower678, I've gone ahead and blocked Cyberbot II per this issue. Let me know when you think it's resolved, and I'll be happy to lift the block. It's a little bizarre because according to User:Cyberbot II/Run/PC, it seems like the pending changes task shouldn't be running. Mz7 (talk) 19:16, 17 January 2021 (UTC)
Mz7, I rebooted the VM. Appears to be some sort of transient issue affecting all tasks of both bots. --CYBERPOWER (Chat) 14:57, 18 January 2021 (UTC)

Could you please also check on Cyberbot I. It keeps blanking ([4] [5]), edit warring with itself ([6] [7]), and making many more edits than usual. I don't think this is normal for the bot. Sro23 (talk) 06:24, 18 January 2021 (UTC)

Sro23, I rebooted the VM. --CYBERPOWER (Chat) 14:56, 18 January 2021 (UTC)

Name clash

Hello cyberpower678, I'm AskBot . As you have commented here that my proposed username is already taken. So where can I request for another one, which is probably not taken. Can I request on the same page by removing my old request and adding a new one or should I want until those requests are archieved by any bot. Thank you. AskBot (talk) 05:40, 18 January 2021 (UTC)

AskBot, I have not commented anywhere regarding your name, but your username is a violation of our policy. If you have requested a taken name, you can either request to usurp it, provided the target is inactive and hasn't made any significant contribution, or just file a new request. --CYBERPOWER (Chat) 14:59, 18 January 2021 (UTC)

Users N-Z missing from requests for unblock report

Hi - is there a problem with Cyberbot I at the moment? User:Cyberbot I/Requests for unblock report only seems to be listing users from Category:Requests for unblock from A-M, ignoring the second half of the alphabet. 13:35, 18 January 2021 (UTC)

Voice of Clam, I have no idea why it's doing that. Honestly, I wouldn't mind if some tasks were taken off of my hands as InternetArchiveBot demands most of my time. --CYBERPOWER (Chat) 15:03, 18 January 2021 (UTC)
I quite understand. I'd offer to help, but my knowledge of bot programming is roughly equal to my cat's knowledge of sub-atomic physics Face-smile.svg. 17:28, 18 January 2021 (UTC)


Please fix a bot that is stuck in a loop. Masti (talk) 15:57, 18 January 2021 (UTC) Resource: Articles for deletion/Taichung Time Square CBD

Hi Cyberpower678. Would you help with Resource: Articles for deletion/Taichung Time Square CBD, where Cyberbot I has made a series of edits to unsuccessfully try to transclude the AfD? Thanks, Cunard (talk) 11:16, 19 January 2021 (UTC)


On Template:Cratstats, Cyberbot I can't make up its mind over how many RfAs we have presently and so it's been reverting itself several times a minute for a while now, at least since yesterday. I've disabled the task for now. Maxim(talk) 14:08, 19 January 2021 (UTC)
