If you see me do something bad, please leave me a comment here; I'll notice immediately, and will refuse to make any more edits until Ruakh has seen the comment.

Any other comments can go either here, or at his talk-page (User talk:Ruakh), as you prefer.

January 2013[edit]

gild the lily[edit]

This entry is not about the verb "gild" - it is about the verb phrase "gild the lily". The section "Similar expression" is about the verb phrase "gild the farthing" and was reverted without discussion.

Please restore "Verb phrase" and the paragraph "Similar expression", perhaps substituting the heading "Similar verb phrase". 71.3.208.88 20:11, 18 January 2013 (UTC)

You seem to be confused. I have not touched that entry since August, and at that time my only change was to add an interwiki-link to the Burmese Wiktionary. —Rukhabot 06:07, 19 January 2013 (UTC)

Autotranslit to write transliterations from modules where it's missing?[edit]

Can this bot do a very useful job of writing transliteration for words missing transliterations form transliteration modules? Only for selected languages in Category:Translations_which_need_romanization, which have modules, which can be used for this purpose. This is the list of language codes: ba|bg|be|hy|el|ka|kk|ky|mk|mn|os|ru|si|tg|tt|ug|uk (as in Template:t) for which autotranslit works well. The module names follow this pattern: e.g. Bulgarian: Module:bg-translit, function name: "tr", which returns a transliteration string.

IMO, it's not a replacement for manual transliteration but many users refuse to transliterate or don't know how. The autotranslit should not replace the existing manual transliteration (especially when word stress is important and there are exceptions) but Vahagn requested for Armenian and Georgian to override existing transliteration, many of them are old. Perhaps a one-off job could be created for this. --Anatoli (обсудить/вклад) 01:09, 21 May 2013 (UTC)

Sorry, I don't have a lot of time these days . . . I'll take a look, but I might not ever get around to actually doing it. —Rukhabot 15:35, 29 May 2013 (UTC)

Vec[edit]

Hi, I saw here that the bot changed vec (Venetian) translations from "t+" and "t-" to "tø", but the Venetian Wiktionary already exists (for 4 months). Thanks. --Tn4196 (talk) 06:31, 3 September 2013 (UTC)

Thanks for letting me know. I'm fixing them right now. —Rukhabot 02:44, 4 September 2013 (UTC)

Check your settings[edit]

Rukhabot's been modifying instances of {{t}} in Wiktionary space. MG reverted several edits, so it may be over for now. Chuck Entz (talk) 01:31, 9 September 2013 (UTC)

There aren't really any "settings"; I just give it a list of pages to examine and update, and in the latest run, the list included all pages whose wikitext included {{t| or {{t+| or {{t-| or {{tø|, provided that what came next wasn't zh or kk or iu or cmn. I guess you're saying that I shouldn't have included pages in the Wiktionary namespace? . . . I think you're right. Looking through the bot's edits in that namespace, many of them were bad, and I don't think any of them were necessary. I'll revert. —RuakhTALK 05:47, 9 September 2013 (UTC)
Update: After looking through all its non-mainspace edits from this run, I'm thinking that it should probably just run in mainspace entries and in appendices. Does that sound good? —RuakhTALK 06:19, 9 September 2013 (UTC)
Sounds fine to me, but what do I know? I just noticed MG's reverts, and saw that no one had brought it to your attention, as far as I could tell- so I stepped in. I figured you would have a better grasp of the situation than I would, once you were aware of it. Chuck Entz (talk) 06:38, 9 September 2013 (UTC)

Redirects in interwikis[edit]

Hi Ruakh, is it possible for the bot to check whether an interwiki is a genuine link or just a redirect before adding it to a page? In this diff, for example, the bot added interwiki links to the Indonesian and Chinese Wiktionaries (id:Liver and zh:Liver) to the page Liver. However, if you actually follow these links, they go to id:liver and zh:liver. These are interwiki equivalents of the lower-case liver, which is completely unrelated to upper-case Liver. If it would be difficult to make this check, then feel free to ignore this message. Smurrayinchester (talk) 13:02, 5 December 2014 (UTC)

Ah, I just noticed there's a similar discussion going on in the Grease Pit right now. Smurrayinchester (talk) 14:13, 5 December 2014 (UTC)
The Grease Pit discussion is actually about something different. (It's about "redirects" in the HTTP sense, which is not the sense that you mean.) But to answer your question — the bot's behavior is intentional. The community has discussed such interwiki-links before, and the consensus was that we actually want them (for a few reasons). —RuakhTALK 17:37, 5 December 2014 (UTC)
