batch loading italian verb forms[edit]

Could you please add "{{infl|it|verb form}}" instead of the word when batch loading articles from file as in f.e. accasciandovi, accasciandoti,accasciandomi, accasciandoci, abbuffandovi, etc. Otherwise the pages fill up Special:UncategorizedPages again while i am trying to get that endless list smaller. Thanks Mutante 22:48, 25 March 2008 (UTC)

Italian participles[edit]

Not every italian participle has a female or plural form. Participles of verbs which are to conjugate with "avere" altough they are intransitive, cannot exist. Exemples: abbaiati, pranzati.... Sorry, it's simply ridiculous --85.1.137.47 14:11, 8 July 2008 (UTC)

  • Yes - we know - we are considering the best action to take. SemperBlottoBot 09:24, 9 July 2008 (UTC)

Recent changes[edit]

Does the bot follow the recent changes, or just your most recent edits? I occasionally find Italian words that have red linked plural, I'm assuming these are older entries, right? Mglovesfun (talk) 14:17, 24 February 2010 (UTC)

  • Words that the bot has not gotten around to are either very new, very old, or are words that have multiple language sections (that the bot doesn't always see). You can always add entries to User:SemperBlottoBot/feedme. SemperBlotto 14:42, 24 February 2010 (UTC)

Adjective forms[edit]

Just a heads-up: we might change the appearance of non-gloss definitions (see here) and as your Italian adjective forms don't use a template, they would become inconsistent. —Internoob (DiscCont) 01:43, 28 July 2010 (UTC)

  • I can live with that. SemperBlotto 06:46, 28 July 2010 (UTC)
    Ideally (per the current Grease Pit discussion) the bot should use {{form of|...|lang=it}} (not lang=Italian, which might be phased out eventually). Mglovesfun (talk) 17:53, 16 September 2010 (UTC)

athleticis[edit]

Latin has no common gender; only masculine, feminine, and neuter. The "common gender" in linguistics is not the same as "common to all genders". --EncycloPetey 08:53, 13 November 2010 (UTC)

Also, the inflection line was missing a standard macron in the ending. This may be a problem on previously generated pages. --EncycloPetey 09:12, 13 November 2010 (UTC)

  • Software modified/corrected. Far too much work would be involved in correcting previously generated pages. Feel free to correct any that you come across. SemperBlottoBot 11:48, 13 November 2010 (UTC)

conjugate me[edit]

Please conjugate préconiser

  • Done. WF - you could have added it to the /feedme page - then I wouldn't have had to logon here. SemperBlottoBot 22:21, 23 December 2010 (UTC)

Template:mf[edit]

Template:mf is deprecated and has been deleted. Please use {{m|f}} instead.Matthias Buchmeier 16:10, 12 January 2011 (UTC)

noun forms[edit]

Hey, SB, do you think you could have a look at [[WT:TR#Latin genitive -atis nouns]], please? I have no idea whether it's up your alley or not, but if not then I have no idea whose it would be up.​—msh210 (talk) 06:12, 3 March 2011 (UTC)

Thanks for replying there.​—msh210 (talk) 17:24, 3 March 2011 (UTC)

Latin error[edit]

diff, not sure why, not too many entries affected right now, just 9 including that one. --Mglovesfun (talk) 15:42, 18 April 2011 (UTC)

  • Looks like my owner entered a find command when editing the python code and typed on the wrong part of the screen (in Mr Magoo mode). All fixed. SemperBlottoBot 16:27, 18 April 2011 (UTC)

assortirions[edit]

Hi, there's some weird pronunciation going on over here. Is possibly my fault --Rockpilot 21:13, 14 November 2011 (UTC)

minauder[edit]

minauder can be added to the FeedMe page. Thanks --Simplus2 12:00, 3 December 2011 (UTC)

desertorum[edit]

It seems that there's a missing macron here; it says dēsertorum, but should be dēsertōrum, at least according to the inflection table at desertus. Could this be a systematic problem? – Krun 01:59, 15 December 2011 (UTC)

  • Yes, but it was fixed some time ago. I haven't gone back and corrected all the bad entries. Please fix them as you find them. SemperBlottoBot 08:36, 15 December 2011 (UTC)

French plural participles[edit]

Can you update the bot syntax to do this? Reasons are two fold. lang=French produces {{French/script}} (doesn't exist) and French has two plural past participles, masculine and feminine. Mglovesfun (talk) 13:21, 20 December 2011 (UTC)

Category:it verb forms[edit]

Category:it verb forms. Maro (talk) 19:46, 26 February 2012 (UTC)

Words in this category have wrong L2 header and category. See for example coproduca. Maro (talk) 22:51, 26 February 2012 (UTC)
It does seem to be limited to one verb, so presumably a one-off typo. Mglovesfun (talk) 23:11, 26 February 2012 (UTC)
Oh, I see what you mean. That was due to a newly added verb of an unusual form. I had to dig a model out of long-term backup. I have fixed the model, and will fix the entries next. SemperBlotto (talk) 08:14, 27 February 2012 (UTC)

transperer[edit]

Hi. there was a mistake with transpercer - see [1]. Perhaps a bug in the code. --Coippf (talk) 12:19, 9 March 2012 (UTC)

forms of imprimo[edit]

I don't know if there is only one verb with that bug but I found one. Forms of imprimo, for example impresserat, link to the verb imprĭmo instead of imprimo. Another: imprĭmis also links to imprimo but No pages link to imprĭmis. Maro 22:18, 1 April 2012 (UTC)

  • A rogue breve had got into a conjugation table and caused havoc. Should all be OK now. SemperBlotto (talk) 07:19, 2 April 2012 (UTC)

Some missed Latin entries[edit]

It looks like the bot ended up not adding inflections of the Latin discus to disco and disce. Would this have happened for all cases where a page already existed for an inflected form, or just if a page already existed and already had a Latin section? Emufarmers (talk) 06:57, 19 April 2012 (UTC)

  • If it already exists with a Latin section, it is not clever enough to add to it properly so just ignores it. The bot is better than nothing but not perfect. SemperBlotto (talk) 06:59, 19 April 2012 (UTC)
    • Does it generate a list of the cases where it's forced to ignore an entry? And if so, do you still have that list (from a year and a half ago, I guess)? Depending on the size of such a list, I could potentially go through and add the missing entries by hand. Emufarmers (talk) 04:03, 20 April 2012 (UTC)
      • Sorry. It just displays a warning message. But, as it normally runs in the background, I don't even see that very often. SemperBlotto (talk) 07:14, 20 April 2012 (UTC)

pourfondre doesn't exist[edit]

Please see http://en.wiktionary.org/wiki/Special:WhatLinksHere/pourfondre . You mistook pourfondre for pourfendre. Regards --Maria.Sion (talk) 11:24, 1 June 2012 (UTC)

radicals[edit]

Bot added a French entry, I removed it and went to modify radical only to find it already said 'radicaux' not 'radicals'. What happened? Mglovesfun (talk) 22:32, 7 June 2012 (UTC)

  • Hah! The bot didn't recognise mplural=... it was looking for mp=... (and fp=...) only. SemperBlotto (talk) 07:31, 8 June 2012 (UTC)
    • Still happening (niveaus, plateaus). I searched the French Scrabble dictionary, zero words end in -eaus, a couple end in -aus (landaus is the only one I can remember). Mglovesfun (talk) 10:20, 25 June 2012 (UTC)
      • Undocumented use of "x" as a second parameter. Please fix documentation. SemperBlotto (talk) 10:31, 25 June 2012 (UTC)

Problem with autocreation of German inflected forms entries[edit]

Take a look here. --WikiTiki89 11:12, 27 December 2012 (UTC)

  • The problem is with Fleischlaberl - it has "?" as a genitive. I'll fix the German noun, and add a check to the bot. SemperBlotto (talk) 11:21, 27 December 2012 (UTC)

Also you entered a dash as the plural form of Humus. PierreAbbat (talk) 03:50, 11 January 2013 (UTC)

  • I have now corrected the headword for Humus so that it shows the correct genitives, and uses the correct hyphen to show absence of a plural. SemperBlotto (talk) 08:41, 11 January 2013 (UTC)

envoûtée[edit]

You should fix your definitions of all French participles: the definition does not mean anything, it should be singular feminine past participle of envoûter (not envoûté). Lmaltier (talk) 05:33, 22 January 2013 (UTC)

  • Such a change was made some time ago. See claquemurer for the current text. SemperBlotto (talk) 07:59, 22 January 2013 (UTC)
    • Thank you. But you forgot to update a number of entries, such as envoûtée. Lmaltier (talk) 18:21, 22 January 2013 (UTC)
      • Well, I'd have to identify all the many pages affected and then write a program to update them. I haven't really got the time or inclination. Feel free to correct any that you come across. SemperBlottoBot (talk) 22:33, 22 January 2013 (UTC)

SemperBlottoBot's generated forms[edit]

Your bot is still adding raw links to entries, like affûtiaux, even though that has been deprecated for a long time. I am working on cleaning up such usage right now (see Category:Entries using form-of templates with a raw link), so could you fix your bot so that it doesn't do that anymore? Thank you. —CodeCat 16:58, 15 March 2013 (UTC)

  • OK - but what's the harm? SemperBlotto (talk) 17:10, 15 March 2013 (UTC)
  • Your bot is still creating entries without a headword template. Please fix this, as it creates work for other editors who have to clean up after your bot. —CodeCat 13:30, 24 December 2013 (UTC)

Template:rfc-auto[edit]

Hi,

Why add {{rfc-auto}} on entries like [2]? Thanks by advance for your answer, Automatik (talk) 01:09, 17 April 2013 (UTC)

  • It's lets another bot know to shuffle the entries into country order. SemperBlottoBot (talk) 07:43, 17 April 2013 (UTC)
    Ok, thanks! Automatik (talk) 21:26, 17 April 2013 (UTC)

referencia[edit]

I noticed your bot added a space after the word it links to. This is causing problems because the template thinks that the parameter is not a valid page name, so it omits the link. There are others in Category:Entries using form-of templates with a raw link/conjugation of. —CodeCat 15:25, 19 May 2013 (UTC)

  • No, it doesn't. I (the human) must have added a space in the input file. I'll fix them. SemperBlottoBot (talk) 16:36, 19 May 2013 (UTC)
    • Thank you, it's appreciated. —CodeCat 16:48, 19 May 2013 (UTC)

language link removal[edit]

In this series of edits [3], it looks as though the Norwegian change is correct, but the Latin changes are not. --EncycloPetey (talk) 01:26, 24 May 2013 (UTC)

The Norwegian changes aren't correct either. It should have been changed into {{form of|Imperative|vise|lang=nb}}. —CodeCat 01:30, 24 May 2013 (UTC)
I've put it back the way it was. SemperBlotto (talk) 07:12, 24 May 2013 (UTC)

on the auto-creation of French conjugated forms[edit]

Hey, Jeff.

Do you think you could have your bot add lang=fr to {{homophones}} when it creates French forms. This will (as the template is currently configured) do nothing except that it will change the links to section-sepcific links (so pastiches rather than pastiches).

Thanks.​—msh210 (talk) 18:22, 24 May 2013 (UTC)

  • OK. I've updated my -er file. I'll try to do others as they are needed. SemperBlottoBot (talk) 19:08, 24 May 2013 (UTC)
    • Thanks!​—msh210 (talk) 07:25, 26 May 2013 (UTC)
      • Do you think you could do whichever files generated [[décrucifia]] et al. and [[ensella]] et al., please?​—msh210 (talk) 16:36, 19 June 2013 (UTC)

hisself[edit]

This edit correctly found a problem, but it mangled the fix. — Carolina wren discussió 01:35, 29 May 2013 (UTC)

Funny bot mistake[edit]

Your bot did something wrong here: diff. It now shows "a fucking of"... —CodeCat 13:33, 1 July 2013 (UTC)

Something went wrong with Portuguese verb forms[edit]

Your bot created some entries for Portuguese verb forms, but it seems to have neglected to provide several required parameters, so those pages are showing script errors instead. See prevedes for example. —CodeCat 11:43, 5 August 2013 (UTC)

consenimor[edit]

These are incorrect

Latin declension tables[edit]

Latin declension tables no longer need separate parameters for the macrons. So these have been removed. I didn't realise your bot used these templates, but I just noticed it now so I'm letting you know. The verb tables still work the old way, but they will probably be changed as well at some point. If I am the one that does it, I hope I remember then to notify you. Could you place notices on the documentation pages, like you did with the Italian templates? —CodeCat 16:38, 17 September 2013 (UTC)

  • Yes. I have modified the bot to handle the new noun and adjective formats (and tested most forms). SemperBlottoBot (talk) 16:43, 17 September 2013 (UTC)

Plural forms[edit]

{{plural of}} doesn't categorise anymore (see WT:NFE), and I noticed your bot hasn't been updated yet, so now it's creating orphaned entries. I've fixed the ones you created, but I'm letting you know in case you need to update your script. —CodeCat 20:02, 8 January 2014 (UTC)

  • Could you point me at a plural form that is properly constructed according to your new rules. Then I can make sure all the ones I create are similar. SemperBlotto (talk) 08:28, 9 January 2014 (UTC)
    • Instead of {{head|xx}}, use {{head|xx|plural}} or {{head|xx|noun form}}/{{head|xx|adjective form}} depending on what the language uses. —CodeCat 13:08, 9 January 2014 (UTC)
  • I noticed your bot is adding nocat=1 to {{plural of}}. I'm guessing you copied it from some existing entries, but it was never meant to be a permanent thing. I only used the parameter to keep track of things, and now I'm removing it from the entries again. Could you change that in your bot? —CodeCat 19:35, 19 January 2014 (UTC)
    • Yes, I noticed it myself an hour ago - bots updated. SemperBlotto (talk) 19:45, 19 January 2014 (UTC)

German verbs[edit]

Dear SemperBlottoBot,

I created a category for you to work on if you want to. An admin has deleted it, but it's still usable.

--Kc kennylau (talk) 06:50, 9 January 2014 (UTC)

  • I am only a de-1, and don't understand the complexities of German verbs. This bot won't be adding German verb forms for quite some time. SemperBlotto (talk) 08:26, 9 January 2014 (UTC)
    • But it did; SemperBlottoBot created g wächs, g milk, and wächs, all in error (there are no such forms), and I've deleted them. —Aɴɢʀ (talk) 07:06, 29 January 2014 (UTC)

Work on Template:fr-noun[edit]

I'm planning to do some cleanup work on the template, which will mean shuffling parameters around a bit. Could you hold off making any bot creations for this template until it's finished? —CodeCat 01:58, 24 January 2014 (UTC)

Hold on, before you do stuff, don't you think there should be a discussion about what changes you're going to make? --WikiTiki89 02:09, 24 January 2014 (UTC)
It's mostly just removing different parameters that do the same thing. —CodeCat 02:15, 24 January 2014 (UTC)
If you mean this then I'm ok with it, but I think fplural should also be renamed to fpl. --WikiTiki89 02:21, 24 January 2014 (UTC)
Yes, like that. I also want to make 2= replace pl=, because that parameter is underused, and 3= and othergender= will become m= and f=, so that 3= can replace pl2=. It mainly brings the template in line with other similar templates like {{ca-noun}} and {{en-noun}}, which already work this way. —CodeCat 02:24, 24 January 2014 (UTC)
Ok, that's fine. --WikiTiki89 02:27, 24 January 2014 (UTC)
OK. I'll keep an eye on it. SemperBlottoBot (talk) 08:20, 24 January 2014 (UTC)
I think the changes are done. I've asked Wikitiki to check to make sure I didn't miss anything. The documentation has been updated. —CodeCat 23:01, 24 January 2014 (UTC)

Gender and number templates are going to be deleted[edit]

I don't know if your bot still uses these, but in case it does, it needs to be changed because these have been deprecated and will be orphaned and deleted soon. You can use the g= parameter on {{head}} instead, if needed. —CodeCat 21:50, 30 January 2014 (UTC)

Work on the Latin conjugation templates[edit]

I'm working on Module:la-verb, which could replace the templates we have now. Could you hold off from creating new entries from these templates for the moment? —CodeCat 02:16, 9 February 2014 (UTC)

  • OK. They are a real mess - good luck! SemperBlotto (talk) 08:08, 9 February 2014 (UTC)

Problems with the autogenerated entries for the declined forms of Lūcās[edit]

Hi SBB. Please see these corrections I've made. For {{la-decl-1st-Greek-Ma|num=sg}}, the quantities of the final -ā̆ of the ablative and vocative forms are different, and grammatical number should not be listed in the form-of definitions of pluralia and singularia tantum; also, your bot should be able to distinguish between common and proper nouns (proper nouns have their own form-of headword template, viz. {{la-proper noun-form}}). Just flagging this up FYI. — I.S.M.E.T.A. 19:34, 4 March 2014 (UTC)

Your bot's still making mistakes with forms of Latin proper nouns; see the entries it's created recently for the forms of Geraestus. — I.S.M.E.T.A. 14:07, 10 March 2014 (UTC)

{{m}}, et al. are deprecated[edit]

You should use |g= in headwords instead. Keφr 10:33, 22 March 2014 (UTC)

"mf" gender[edit]

Your bot has been generating a few entries which call {{head}} with g=mf, which triggers errors. "mf" is not a valid gender code in Module:gender and number, it's only supported by some templates as a specific exception. For {{head}} you need to use g=m|g2=f. —CodeCat 16:32, 9 April 2014 (UTC)

  • Fixed for Portuguese nouns. SemperBlottoBot (talk) 16:46, 9 April 2014 (UTC)

notte[edit]

An edit by this bot removed the plural from "notte", changing it from "notti" to the base form. I have undone this edit. I think this might be an error with the bot. Velociraptor888 (talk) 19:29, 25 May 2014 (UTC)

  • The error was in the module that is used by {{it-noun}}. It had been changed to provide the wrong plural. Fixed. SemperBlotto (talk) 08:19, 26 May 2014 (UTC)

disciformus[edit]

Special:whatlinkshere/disciformus is nonempty even though [[disciformus]] has never been created AFAICT.​—msh210 (talk) 06:47, 10 June 2014 (UTC)

Spanish[edit]

Hey. If you get some time, why not auto-generate thousands of Spanish verb forms? --Type56op9 (talk) 15:36, 12 August 2014 (UTC)

abominandus[edit]

An old error, but an odd one. Checking the latest database dump for other instances of [[=, I see that frendendus, extergens, extergendus and praedandus (just RFCed) were also affected; I just cleaned up abominandus and frendendus. (I initially noticed this thanks to DTLHS' cleanup list of instances of mismatched [[ ~ ]], Wiktionary:Todo/bad links.) - -sche (discuss) 04:15, 31 August 2014 (UTC)

Portuguese past participles[edit]

Hi SBB. To let you know, your bot has made the mistake to put masculine gender on some feminine past participles, for example here. I'm sure there's hundreds of other like that. Is there a quick fix? --Type56op9 (talk) 12:42, 15 November 2014 (UTC)
