accuracyEdit

Hi, i am a frequent user of the Bot and i love it. However, i have the impression it has become increasingly inaccurate and sometimes 1 in 3 suggestions on the list do not require the kind of edit suggested. This is meant to be an encouraging and constructive comment. All the best Wikirictor talk • contribs 14:11, 17 April 2021 (UTC)

@Wikirictor: Hey, first of all, thanks for using SuggestBot! Secondly, thanks for getting in touch about this, and your patience with me as I've been not getting back to you with a response here! I've been wanting to write you a fairly long answer, but haven't found the time yet. In the meantime, I wanted to reply so that you know that I've seen it, and also that I take this problem seriously and see it as good motivation to keep improving the bot.

OpentaskEdit

Greetings, SuggestBot. You haven't updated {{Opentask}} the past few days. Is everything okay? Coming back soon? Hope all is well. Take care. --PFHLai (talk) 00:55, 23 April 2021 (UTC)

Hey PFHLai, great to hear from you! Thanks for letting me know that SuggestBot wasn't feeling well. I try to keep an eye on it, but somehow lost track of its updates. Since you got in touch I was able to go check out what was happening and get the bot back to making its normal updates. Thanks again! Regards, Nettrom (talk) 04:11, 29 April 2021 (UTC)
Thank you very much, Nettrom. Glad to see that SuggestBot is back to its old self again. Excellent! Thanks, again. Cheers! --PFHLai (talk) 11:43, 29 April 2021 (UTC)
  • Hello, SuggestBot and Nettrom. The {{Opentask}} somehow got protected by MusikAnimal. It looks like the protection is getting in the Bot's way. Just an FYI at this point. I hope you can overcome this protection. Good Luck! Thanks. --PFHLai (talk) 01:07, 18 August 2021 (UTC)

Can't stop getting suggestionsEdit

SuggestBot keeps putting suggestions on my page and I don't have any templates on my page. I would have set this up around ten years ago, so I don't know if the process would have been different back then and therefore needs a different way to stop. Can someone help me with this?  Ryan Vesey 00:20, 6 May 2021 (UTC)

@Ryan Vesey: Yes, I'm happy to help you out with this! Sorry that this has been happening, I can totally understand that this must be confusing. It took me a few minutes to figure it out too. The userbox was on this page with your userboxes. Because the bot expects folks to be able to have these collections of userboxes on a subpage (for transcluding it on their user page) it's not supposed to put the suggestions there (we did have a problem with that for a little while, though) so they just show up on your talk page instead, seemingly out of nowhere. I went ahead and deleted it there, and now no longer find any reference to SuggestBot's templates from any of your pages. Please do let me know if it somehow shows up again, and I'll look further into it. Cheers, Nettrom (talk) 02:38, 6 May 2021 (UTC)
@Nettrom: Thank you so much! I was guessing it was on a subpage somewhere, but couldn't even remember what subpages I had, it's been so long and I've only recently returned for minor corrections here and there. I went ahead and deleted all of those userboxes as I'm not transcluding it onto my user page anymore. Thanks! Ryan Vesey 16:38, 8 May 2021 (UTC)
@Ryan Vesey: I often use the "all pages with prefix" search tool for this. It can be found by following the "Special pages" link on the left sidebar of any Wikipedia page. To the issue of your subpages, I prefilled this search query in user space with your username followed by a slash. Hopefully that will help. Happy editing! – voidxor 18:55, 26 July 2021 (UTC)

Suggestions on non-en wikisEdit

Hello. I'm from dag wiki

  • I currently receive en articles suggestions here. Is it possible to have them delivered at my dag user talk page?
  • It is possible to get article suggestions from dag Wikipedia?

Disagree with SuggestbotEdit

I disagree with a suggestion given by suggestbot. I think a merger would be too clunky and a redirect is more appropriate. I have left notes on the talk pages of source and destination pages, but can I take this disagreement to the general page on proposed mergers? If so, can I have a date for the suggestion to find the proposed merger? The list of proposed merges is long. Thank you. Nellas Galadhon (talk) 17:50, 26 July 2021 (UTC)
