Task categoriesEditar

SuggestBot uses template substitution when it posts suggestions. In those templates (Usuário(a):SuggestBot/Templates/Regulars and Usuário(a):SuggestBot/Templates/Requests) there are six different task categories used. The configuration of those categories varies from Wikipedia to Wikipedia, e.g. Norwegian Wikipedia has a category of "important stubs" and Swedish Wikipedia has six articles needing sources and no Wikify category.

I have looked around at the Portuguese Wikipedia's categories and here's a suggestion for the categories SuggestBot could use:

Categoria:!Esboços por tema and Categoria:!Artigos mínimos
Articles needing sources
Categoria:!Artigos com referências não fiáveis, Categoria:!Artigos que carecem de fontes, Categoria:!Artigos que carecem de fontes secundárias, Categoria:!Artigos que carecem de notas de rodapé, Categoria:!Artigos com citações quebradas, and Categoria:!Artigos que necessitam de verificação factual
Categoria:!Artigos a sofrerem fusão
Cleanup or clarify
Categoria:!Páginas a reciclar and Categoria:!Artigos que necessitam de esclarecimento
Update or expand
Categoria:!Artigos com dados desatualizados, Categoria:!Artigos contendo afirmações potencialmente datadas, Categoria:!Artigos a expandir, and Categoria:!Artigos parciais
Lacking images
Categoria:!Artigos sem imagens

There does not seem to be a great number of stubs here on Portuguese Wikipedia, so instead of having 19 stubs it will probably be good to have fewer and instead have more articles in need of sources and articles needing images (there's ~100,000 articles needing images).

Please let me know if there are categories I should know about that I can include, both within this existing list of task categories and as suggestions for other task categories, I'll be happy to help figure out a configuration that appears to be most useful to users here on Portuguese Wikipedia. Please ask if you have questions! Regards, Nettrom (discussão) 20h37min de 20 de fevereiro de 2013 (UTC)

Hi, Nettrom. I will help out translating when I can. In the meantime, there are Categoria:!Artigos mínimos for sub-stub or minimum articles. You may like to clump these with the stub articles. GoEThe (discussão) 21h43min de 20 de fevereiro de 2013 (UTC)
Thanks for letting me know about the category, I've added it to the list now. And thanks so much for translating the userbox! I noticed that the other day but didn't get around to post on your talk page. I'll probably go ask on the village pump to see if there are others who would like to help out with the translation work.

Hi Nettron, i added the template in two pages, one for diariamente (daily) and one for semanalmente (weekly), just for test. Is the bot already working? Thanks and congrats for the initiative. Rodrigolopes (discussão) 01h37min de 22 de fevereiro de 2013 (UTC)

Hi, thanks for being interested in SuggestBot! The bot is currently not working. I submitted the approval request just yesterday and as far as I know I should not run the bot until after it has been reviewed. Hopefully some on the bot committee will look at it soon and the bot can start doing test posts. Maybe a few days? Regards, Nettrom (discussão) 18h47min de 22 de fevereiro de 2013 (UTC)
Just a quick update. I've made a test edit with my own account, and that worked. Unfortunately we've run into a minor performance problem, which I'm looking into and will hopefully have fixed tomorrow. You should therefore see some suggestions arrive in the next day or so. Thanks for the translation help! Regards, Nettrom (discussão) 23h21min de 26 de fevereiro de 2013 (UTC)
Works perfectly. Nice suggestions . Rodrigolopes (discussão) 17h48min de 27 de fevereiro de 2013 (UTC)

Speaking of translationEditar

Hi Nettrom, I don't know if it is possible, but how about adding a section to the suggestions: Articles needing translation? The relevant category is Categoria:!Artigos em tradução. Cheers, GoEThe (discussão) 09h25min de 21 de março de 2013 (UTC)

I had a look, and there's a fair number of articles in that category (our crawl found ~5250), so it's definitely a good candidate. It will also be interesting to see how good SuggestBot's suggestions from that category are, I am not sure how they fit our technology. I've added it to our configuration and to the templates, so it'll start posting articles from that category from now on. Thanks again for the idea, looking forward to seeing how good the suggestions are and if SuggestBot's users find it useful! Cheers, Nettrom (discussão) 18h11min de 21 de março de 2013 (UTC)

Bot flagEditar


Does this bot already have the necessary bot flag to run on ptwiki? If not, please stop him and go here to ask for it. José Luiz disc 20h53min de 30 de abril de 2013 (UTC)

As GoEThe points out, we have a bot request submitted (it's also linked from the bot notice and the Status section on SuggestBot's user page). Since we are quickly approaching the 50 edits granted to us in our request, I have been monitoring our progress closely to decide when it's time to report our results. I have now updated the bot request, reporting that things have been going smoothly so far. Let me know if there are any questions about the bot, I'd be happy to respond.
