Is there an equivalent to the parameter "algo" in Lowercase sigmabot III?Edit

Is there an equivalent to the parameter "algo" in Lowercase sigmabot III? See what is does here:

Basically it sets the minimum time a thread must be viewable on the main talk page before archiving. Default is 30 days in an example on the Lowercase sigmabot III how-to page.

It avoids the problem of a minimum threads setting of 4 (the default number in Lowercase sigmabot III how-to page, for example) causing the archiving bot to archive a thread that has only been showing for a day, or a few days. Due to a group of several threads showing up suddenly. -- Timeshifter (talk) 17:29, 9 October 2019 (UTC)

@Timeshifter: Isn't this the age parameter? See User:ClueBot III#Required parameters. -- John of Reading (talk) 08:33, 12 October 2019 (UTC)
@John of Reading: I think you may be right. I wasn't reading it correctly before. -- Timeshifter (talk) 15:57, 12 October 2019 (UTC)

Redundant talk page section for October 2019Edit

I noticed here: Special:Diff/920698761 that Cluebot created an October 2019 section when it was already on the page. Is this a bug, and is it known? Ionmars10 (talk) 23:54, 11 October 2019 (UTC)

It's because of the time that's passed. The previous warnings were all a few days old therefore stale. So ClueBot NG has to then start the warning process again from scratch which then generates the new heading.-- 5 albert square (talk) 22:38, 12 October 2019 (UTC)

Really getting old correcting cluebotEdit

Almost every day cluebot tags 188.105.94.86 as a problem, and it never is. I don't know what is causing the flags on this poor IP but it sure is getting old removing the false reverts. Fyunck(click) (talk) 08:18, 12 October 2019 (UTC)

It is likely due to the editor having removed a lot of content. In any case, simply report the false positives and those in charge of reviewing them will take it from there. Because of the way ClueBot NG is built (artificial neural network employing machine learning) it is often difficult to pinpoint exactly why the bot made a decision it made. (And someone will eventually post a Luddite comment about how they disagree with it and say the bot should be blocked until that is fixed, so I will address it in advance: this is how things are; suck it up; and CBNG is currently a net positive to Wikipedia that people take for granted)k6ka 🍁 (Talk · Contributions) 12:38, 14 October 2019 (UTC)

Request to addEdit

I am not versed in bot programming or Cluebot's innards. We have a persistent vandal (for quite some time), the stinky vandal that continually attacks India-related articles (e.g. South India) and pages like Stink and Stinky to make derogatory comments about people from the Indian Subcontinent. Could a new section or watchlist be added in the programming to look for (hate to write this but it is needed here for clarity): Indians are stinky. If possible, please add, as it would help to catch them earlier. They are always reverted and redacted, and users blocked, but any bot help will be appreciated. -- Alexf(talk) 18:26, 13 October 2019 (UTC)

@Alexf: From my understanding, I don't think Cluebot can be asked to catch specific phrases. An edit filter might help with this though, so I suggest you post at Wikipedia:Edit filter/Requested. -- John of Reading (talk) 06:25, 14 October 2019 (UTC)
Ah. I stand corrected then. Will do. Thanks. -- Alexf(talk) 10:59, 14 October 2019 (UTC)
