RationalWiki's 2018 Fundraiser

There is no RationalWiki without you. We are a small non-profit with no staff — we are hundreds of volunteers who document pseudoscience and crankery around the world every day. We will never allow ads because we must remain independent. We cannot rely on big donors with corresponding big agendas. We are not the largest website around, but we believe we play an important role in defending truth and objectivity.

If everyone seeing this today donates $5, we will meet our goal for 2018.

Fighting pseudoscience isn't free.
We are 100% user-supported! Help and donate $5, $20 or whatever you can today with PayPal Logo.png!

Basic instructions; copy/paste this at the top of a talkpage:

|algo = old(30d)
|archive = {{subst:NAMESPACE}}:{{subst:PAGENAME}}/Archive%(counter)d

This will archive sections that have been inactive for 30 days.

Full parameters can be seen at the archive.py help page.

You can use Talkpage/PibotHidden if you don't want the green box with a list of archives.

Prevent archiving[edit]

The easiest way is to add (sticky) add the end of a title, for example:

== Hi there (sticky) ==

You can also "schedule" a section for archival with a fake timestamp in comments:

<!-- Prevent Archive 21:09, 1 December 2016 (UTC) --> 

Means the bot won't archive it until the 1st of December 2016 plus whatever you set algo to.

Tech notes[edit]

Uses the Pywikibot's (2.0rc3) archive.py script being run as:

python2.7 pwb.py archivebot.py Talkpage/PibotHidden 2>&1
python2.7 pwb.py archivebot.py Talkpage/Pibot 2>&1

Doesn't seem to like Python 3.4...
