User:Inferno Bot

Hi! I'm Inferno Bot, also known as User:The Crow's personal bot.

Current duties:

  • Archival.

Archiving[edit]

My main duty on the wiki is to assist in archiving talkpages! For a full documentation of how this works, please check out User:Inferno Bot/config/doc the documentation.

If you just want to quickly get a template for talkpages, just copy the template below.

 {{User:Inferno Bot/config
  |archive={{SUBST:FULLPAGENAME}}/Archive%(counter)d
  |algo=old(5d)
  |archiveheader={{talk archive}}
 }}

For pages with existing archives, use the setting below.

 {{User:Inferno Bot/config
  |archive={{SUBST:FULLPAGENAME}}/Archive%(counter)d
  |algo=old(5d)
  |archiveheader={{talk archive}}
  |counter=NUMBEROFEXISTINGARCHIVES
 }}

Replace NUMBEROFEXISTINGARCHIVES with the total amount of existing archive pages.

Both of these archive threads with no response in the past 5 days, and ensures that there is always at least 5 threads on the mainpage. Archival happens 2 threads at a time and overflow is when the page size exceeds 200kb. If you can't figure out how to set it up, or if you need a more specialized setup for certain pages, leave a comment on User talk:The Crow and I'll see what I can do for you.

Archive timing[edit]

Archiving is done twice a day. Once at 12:00 UTC and once at 0:00 UTC. If it is not running, please notify User:The Crow. Any scheduled maintenance will be published below. Scheduled maintenance includes system upgrades and security updates.

There is currently no scheduled maintenance.

Emergency procedures[edit]

In the event that the bot starts behaving like an alt of User:Newton or engages in other erratic behavior, please block the bot and notify User:The Crow on his talkpage. I try to keep the bot secure, but things can always happen.
