Why did you say that User:4o4NotFound Bot was violating bot rules? Most bots that are even approved are don’t have a name with their owner’s username or task. A very good example of this is User:CluebotNG.

E Super Maker, my first impression when seeing the name was that it was a self referential joke about the bot not being created yet, but now that I read it again it may be fine if it's a dead link repair bot. I don't know the story about cluebot's name but the vast majority has the operator name in full or in part (User:GreenC bot, User:AnomieBOT, User:PearBOT, User:PrimeBOT etc.) or the task such as User:Sinebot and User:SportsStatsBot. I would recommend a WP:RENAME, but I guess you could consult a bag member if you think the current name is fine. ‑‑Trialpears (talk) 00:45, 13 November 2019 (UTC)

Google Code-In 2019 is coming - please mentor some documentation tasks!Edit


Google Code-In, Google-organized contest in which the Wikimedia Foundation participates, starts in a few weeks. This contest is about taking high school students into the world of opensource. I'm sending you this message because you recently edited a documentation page at the English Wikipedia.

I would like to ask you to take part in Google Code-In as a mentor. That would mean to prepare at least one task (it can be documentation related, or something else - the other categories are Code, Design, Quality Assurance and Outreach) for the participants, and help the student to complete it. Please sign up at the contest page and send us your Google account address to, so we can invite you in!

From my own experience, Google Code-In can be fun, you can make several new friends, attract new people to your wiki and make them part of your community.

If you have any questions, please let us know at

Thank you!

Archive boxEdit

Thanks for politely pointing out the error of my ways! LOL Coretheapple (talk) 03:03, 27 November 2019 (UTC)

Coretheapple, don't worry about it! We all fall prey to TLDR every once in a while! ‑‑Trialpears (talk) 09:42, 27 November 2019 (UTC)

Journal infobox run?Edit

It's been a while since the bot ran on journal articles and update the infobox needed thing. It would be nice if the bot ran daily/weekly/monthly to take care of those. Headbomb {t · c · p · b} 11:52, 28 November 2019 (UTC)

Headbomb, I thought I set it to run twice a month through cron, but I guess not. I'll take a look. ‑‑Trialpears (talk) 12:01, 28 November 2019 (UTC)
Well in any case, it hasn't run since October 12th. Headbomb {t · c · p · b} 12:03, 28 November 2019 (UTC)
Headbomb, Should be working now, will check it's next scheduled run in a week. ‑‑Trialpears (talk) 13:34, 28 November 2019 (UTC)

I was using {{Archivebox}} (a redirect to {{Archive box}}) on my talk page (along with 559 others?), which apparently turned into a double-redirect earlier today. Was I supposed to have known about this? Thanks. —[AlanM1(talk)]— 04:50, 8 December 2019 (UTC)

AlanM1, very sorry about that. I forgot to fix double redirects after redirecting per TfD which broke your box. It's now fixed and should be back to normal. Thanks for telling me; I won't do it again! ‑‑Trialpears (talk) 08:14, 8 December 2019 (UTC)

PearBOT InfoBoxEdit

Hello, I am interested in the InfoBox work that your bot is conducting. In paricular, pages in radio, radio station, and amateur radio. What do the WikiProjects need to do to opt-in? Thanks. --mikeu talk 06:15, 12 December 2019 (UTC)
