You're on a roll

It looks like you're doing a fantastic job with the article rating script. Much more thorough/reliable/etc. than I could hope for. (:

Also, do you still have that autosign script? What stage of completion was it left at?

And once it's done, we'll have done all the articles so won't need it any more!! :D

It's almost ready, and it will also allow changing the rating, which the current script cannot do.

There were problems with edit conflicts. For some reason the bot was overwriting other people's edits even though it was supposed to detect edit conflicts and rerun for the new edits since the bot started checking. Pywikipedia didn't support detecting edit conflicts the way nxbot required it, so I had to patch it, but it didn't work and I just gave up/moved on to other things. Also, the code that handles edit conflicts is intelligent and doesn't force the bot to start all over again, but it's untested and may or may not work.

Also, sometimes it detects false positives, see User:Nx/todo.

I'll dig up the autosign bot if you're interested.

I'm done for today. Posted what needs to be done on User talk:Ponder Stibbons/vector.js. Feel free to continue if you want to.

I'm interested in taking a gander at the autosign bot, actually, that would be great.

Again, great job. You are the brightest witch of your age wizard on this wiki!

Ok, I'll send you an email shortly.

The FTB is also acting up.

Actually I've never read any Discworld, I've only played the first two PC games. I chose the name Ponder Stibbons after this comment.

You're missing out. You do remind me of Ponder Stibbons though.
