This user is a bot.

It is run by the Techs.

If you were blocked, talk to them (or post something on your talkpage) — the bot can't and won't respond to you.

You blocked 141 for 3.6 days[edit]

"Nazi scumbag" filter[edit]

I tried to reply to a nazi BoN on the talkpage of Race, and (I assume) it thought I was posting their post, and it blocked me. Seems like something that should be fixed, if possible. Frederick♠♣♥♦ 04:23, 15 December 2015 (UTC)

I'll take a look at it. I was hoping somebody would trigger it sooner or later so I could find out what it would do (since I programmed it, the person it was meant to stop hasn't been back). I've taken some measure to fix the problem. Thanks for letting me know, and I apologize for the inconvenience. Gooniepunk (talk) 05:37, 15 December 2015 (UTC)

Bot is showing in the recent changes?[edit]

Can we hide this bot's actions? --It's-a me, Lgm sigpic.png LeftyGreenMario! 02:02, 24 March 2018 (UTC)

@Kazitor RoninMacbeth (talk) 03:21, 24 March 2018 (UTC)
@LeftyGreenMario and RoninMacbeth Probably not. Like I said on the saloon bar, for some reason we are getting spammed heavily at the moment. I enabled blocking on the filter because there was just too much spam coming in. I guess we should just wait for it to die down. —Kazitor, pending 03:28, 24 March 2018 (UTC)
@Kazitor I did a little looking, turns out the edit filter doesn't have the bot user right. RoninMacbeth (talk) 03:31, 24 March 2018 (UTC)
@RoninMacbeth Yes, it seems Nx removed it 7 years ago, a few hours after it was added. If a bot blocks someone, does that stop it from showing in recent changes? And if so, should we overrule Nx's judgement? Personally, I don't think seeing <10 blocks in RC is that big a deal. —Kazitor, pending 03:38, 24 March 2018 (UTC)
Eh, it'd be a little more convenient not seeing it, and giving it bot rights prevents this thing from happening again. We should just let it run in the background while we go about our business. And yes, bot-blocks don't show up on RC. RoninMacbeth (talk) 03:40, 24 March 2018 (UTC)
Alright, changed its rights. I guess it's not that bad since I believe quite a few people check the logs too. —Kazitor, pending 03:43, 24 March 2018 (UTC)

good bot[edit]

Still fucking up, I see[edit]

So apparently the Edit Filter is still blocking @Dysklyver, I`m sure one of us will try to fix it again, I'll see what's wrong with it later, too busy right now.--Don Juan (talk) 18:45, 1 December 2018 (UTC)

It's fine, basically I am deliberately tripping the filter to check it works when making new filters, more particularly the ones that block. — Dysk (contribs) 19:32, 1 December 2018 (UTC)
I noticed, I edited the filter to remove all the "junk" sequences, and left in the bits that would actually help filter out trolls and vandals.--Don Juan (talk) 20:49, 1 December 2018 (UTC)
@D Now that it's been several months and I trust you enough, "too busy right now" meant "too lazy to be bothered doing a damn thing." Oxyaena Harass 01:09, 1 April 2019 (UTC)


I think we should give the edit filter the bot user right so that it doesn't clog Recent Changes. Any objections? RoninMacbeth (talk) 05:25, 12 December 2018 (UTC)

RoninMacbeth: Sure, if it isn't already. — pythoncoder  (talk | contribs) 20:47, 31 March 2019 (UTC)
This was done a while back now, there is some detail on the technical support page. — Dysk (contribs) 22:05, 31 March 2019 (UTC)

Removing the bot right[edit]

I’m considering doing this, unless anyone objects, it would make it slightly easier to spot any false positives. It was apparently given the bot right because it was clogging up recent changes, but something’s changed (maybe a filter has been disabled or no longer blocks) as it now only blocks a few accounts a day. Christopher (talk) 21:25, 26 February 2021 (UTC)

I’m not a patient person. If anyone hates this decision, they can ask me to reverse it and I’ll just have to click “show bots” every time I check recent changes. Christopher (talk) 21:40, 26 February 2021 (UTC)
