Hi Magnus,

I'm quite a noobie, but I thought the Cradle tool looked so easy to use I could do it. But though I've got a nice form (prehistoric pottery) , if I hit "create item" it just loads. and loads and loads and loads. Any idea what my mistake could have been? Thanks for your time!

Hi Sophie C. Schmidt -

This usually happens when you aren't logged in to the tool in OAUTH. If the tool doesn't say "Welcome, Sophie C. Schmidt" at the top right, you need to login with OAUTH before you fill in the form. (There's no way that I ever found to save the form data while you login.)

It took me ages to figure this out when I was new to this tool.

Hi. Watchlist of your bot (QuickStatementsBot) is more than 10 million rows now and on its own currently responsible for 20% of all of watchlist table. Can I clean the watchlist? Please don't do it yourself. It'll cause issues in the database. See this page for more information.

Killed by OS for overloading memory.

Hi Magnus, I recall we talked about this before. Some Listeria lists haven't been updated for months. The query works and doesn't time out. When trying to manually update the list, the web interface returns "Killed by OS for overloading memory." See for example Wikidata:WikiProject sum of all paintings/Possible portraits. Can you have a look? Quite a few of my reports haven't been updated for a while.

V. Quick request: activate ListeriaBot in en.wikiversity

Hi Magnus,

I've got everything ready on wikiversity for listeriabot to be activated. I just need to you to edit listeria_rs. You can see here that it's very close to working, it's just that the bot doesn't make the edit yet.

I'm pretty sure it's just a single line edit required in listeria_rs, I just don't speak sufficient rust to submit a push request!

Date precision “decade” displays incorrectly in Listeria

Scraper still only semi-working?

JesseW (talkcontribs)

Thank you for flipping the switch and getting the scraper working again -- I was able to use it to create a catalog for the MediaWiki-using website I was trying to include; the catalog is here:

Where I'm now stuck is that it seems like it hasn't managed to actually find any pages! I can't tell if this is because there's a problem, or if it just hasn't finished yet. Do you have any logging on your side that could clarify this?

JesseW (talkcontribs)

I've now tried adjusting the scraper rules for, and re-confirmed again that it works in testing, but isn't finding any entries when it's doing the actual run. And the job is completed (rather quickly).

Mix'n'match scraper creation (mostly) broken?

Flipped the switch, should work better now.

Oh .. a pitty it's gone. I miss it already. ;)

The main advantage in recent months was that it didn't break at the same time as QS v.2

Anyways .. thanks for having kept it up all these years. The simplicity of its GUI can hardly be surpassed.
