Would I be able to usurp User:Comrades in six months' time?Edit

Hello there Cyber. I'm reposting this because I didn't get a response last time. I hope you're all well now. But please take as much time as you need if need-be. I want to thank you for giving me six months to muddle over my name! As I have discovered better names than before. I just came here because I am wondering if it is possible to usurp Comrades as my username. As it is currently taken by someone who registered back in 2012. It's not my final decision. I am just wondering if I can. Thank you. The Duke 17:18, 20 May 2019 (UTC)

The Duke of Nonsense Yes. Come back to me one month before the time you wish to be renamed and ask me again.—CYBERPOWER (Chat) 22:53, 23 May 2019 (UTC)
Or you can leave a usurp notice on the German Wikipedia for that user's talk page and come back when ready to be renamed.—CYBERPOWER (Chat) 22:53, 23 May 2019 (UTC)

Cyberbot I needs more sophistication re Template:Book report startEdit

I edited Book talk:Crag martins to remove italic markup (''...'') for a genus name used in Template:book report start, as explained in my edit summary,

{{book report start}} puts the second parameter in italics, so remove italic markup from genus name; fixing lint errors

Cyberbot I then edited this same article, reinserting the spurious italic markup that creates a lint error and un-italicizes the genus name. I have reverted this change. Would you please edit your bots so that this doesn't happen again? —Anomalocaris (talk) 08:44, 25 April 2019 (UTC)

You removed the above comment without addressing the issue and you did it again. I have made the fix Five (5) times. Please stop inserting inappropriate italic markup. Please cooperate. —Anomalocaris (talk) 09:14, 21 May 2019 (UTC)

Update: I have learned from Jonesey95 that the rule both on and off Wikipedia is that genus and species embedded in an italic phrase get flipped out of italics. My solution was incorrect. Jonesey95 has come up with a solution that flips the genus and species out of Italics and also does not generate lint errors. Please use Jonesey95's solution. —Anomalocaris (talk) 05:45, 22 May 2019 (UTC)

I don't understand why there are problems to begin with. The bot has been in continuous operation since I took it over from NoomBot. I haven't touched the code other that to improve the security on it. So why are there problems now?—CYBERPOWER (Chat) 22:56, 23 May 2019 (UTC)
The Special:Linter errors were not visible until the Tidy to Remex conversion began a year or two ago. Because of the unusual formatting used in the template itself and in the transclusion, Cyberbot's edits to this page reintroduce two different Linter errors: a misnested tag, and a missing end tag. – Jonesey95 (talk) 04:43, 24 May 2019 (UTC)


Hi, why is Cyberbot I updating adminstats several times a day? It used to be just once, soon after 04:30 (UTC). --Redrose64 🌹 (talk) 19:35, 23 May 2019 (UTC)

I honestly don't know. It could just be a hiccup.—CYBERPOWER (Chat) 22:57, 23 May 2019 (UTC)

hello thereEdit

Trophy.png hello there
i know this may be strange but i am looking for penpals and cannot afford the penpal websites if you are interested sign up with me on with the user number 1001070062 Xaricam (talk) 22:17, 23 May 2019 (UTC)
@Dhtwiki, Redrose64, and Ronhjones: This actually appears to be legitimate. Xaricam is communicating from prison.—CYBERPOWER (Chat) 22:50, 23 May 2019 (UTC)
I reverted a post to Village pump (miscellaneous) that seemed misplaced. Is that an appropriate place to post such messages? Dhtwiki (talk) 23:04, 23 May 2019 (UTC)
Dhtwiki Not really, no. But given that this user doesn't know where else to go, we should maybe help her by at least pointing her in the right direction, wherever here that may be?—CYBERPOWER (Chat) 23:06, 23 May 2019 (UTC)
I hope some such direction can be given, especially since this user seems unusually courteous for someone who is both incarcerated and disruptive (see User_talk:Dhtwiki#hello). Note that their user page, or some portion of it, is now flagged for speedy deletion. Dhtwiki (talk) 23:17, 23 May 2019 (UTC)
{{help me-helped}} What should we do here. I have no idea.—CYBERPOWER (Chat) 23:28, 23 May 2019 (UTC)
hi yes i am indeed locked up i have my sister post things online for me so please excuse the delay i just dont know where to turn its hard in here and so here i am please help me— Preceding unsigned comment added by Xaricam (talkcontribs) 23:32, 23 May 2019 (UTC)
@Xaricam: Well to start let's teach you how to indent and sign your posts. Use colons (":") to indent your text. Always indent one more than the person you are responding to. Sign your post by typing ~~~~ at the end.—CYBERPOWER (Chat) 23:32, 23 May 2019
like this ok, well ive been locked up for about 8 years im looking on here because i can access this site but i digress im dying in here without communication from the outside world i did not know what else to doXaricam (talk) 23:36, 23 May 2019 (UTC)
Not quite with the indenting, but you got the signing down. To indent properly, you need to start a new line break, count the number of colons I'm using and add one to the count and place at the start of your post. Observe the previous comments between you and me to see the pattern. :-)—CYBERPOWER (Chat) 23:43, 23 May 2019 (UTC)
i am most likely going to be deleted ill just have to make a new account if you would the web page is for communicating and i would love to have the "company" well i hope to see you there?Xaricam (talk) 23:46, 23 May 2019 (UTC)
Unfortunately, I've got so much on my plate right now, that I would be bad company. However, you can become a contributor on Wikipedia and interact with the community. I feel that would be better than—CYBERPOWER (Chat) 23:49, 23 May 2019 (UTC)
well if you ever change your mind ill be there its not like a forum either its more email old school based have you ever heard of i got the idea for this from looking that up on here, well its been nice while it lasted thank you so very much for your advice on editing i will take it and use itXaricam (talk) 23:53, 23 May 2019 (UTC)
@Xaricam: You are always free to edit here. You can start small by fighting vandalism here, or asking around at the WP:TEAHOUSE. You'll find the community is full of users willing to help new people out and help them integrate into the community. Just be aware that there are equally users here who can be assholes sometimes, but don't let it get you down. I have a feeling rather than seeking out penpals, that becoming a part of the Wikipedia community you may find a place you may like to edit regularly and make this free encyclopedia even better. :-)—CYBERPOWER (Chat) 23:58, 23 May 2019 (UTC)

I have marked the help request as solved. Despite WP:NOTFORUM I think I can handle this by encouraging actual wiki work and responding to questions on my talk page with WP:NOTFORUM in mind. That said, keeping the help request open for longer would probably really cost too much community time. ~ ToBeFree (talk) 10:20, 24 May 2019 (UTC)

I've been waiting a long time for this to happen. Xaricam posted similar messages to a few other user talk pages, including my own. Among their other edits are a certain amount of personal information, and removal of the aforementioned speedy deletion tags. --Redrose64 🌹 (talk) 13:19, 24 May 2019 (UTC)

Deleted AfD tagEdit

Hi! First, the bot's working correctly. I did remove an AfD tag by reverting my own edit (it was one I had just placed). I also requested speedy closure of the discussion on the AfD page. The article was just written today (I'm not sure how it's already on the main site). I've already reached out to the author to explain what's needed to bring the article up to an encyclopedic level and I've given them a link to the preferred process for writing new articles. Next time (if I act too hastily), I'll leave the request on the AfD page and leave the template I put up alone. I just didn't want to discourage the author.
