Bot again[change source]

It's reverting people with rollback, and warning long-term editors. Please can you stop it doing this. Thanks, Majorly talk 22:21, 29 January 2009 (UTC)

Why revert?[change source]

A short sample from my addition;

The brain stem is the lowest part of the brain. It connects the other parts of the brain (the cerebrum and cerebellum) to the spinal cord.

It can essentially be divided into three sections; the hindbrain, midbrain and diencephalon.

I am not quite sure how this could be classified as spam.

Would you please do something about it?

Thanks, Shaun

It reverted you because you had [[Link title]] on the end of your edit. You must have bumped the button in the tool bar. I've re added your edit minus the [[Link title]]. Sorry about any inconvenience caused. --Chris 10:50, 3 March 2009 (UTC)

Why Revert Again?[change source]

I was editing Neutron Stars and your Bot reverted my changes.

I dramatically expanded a stub, reorganised the information and added some maths. I'm very new to wikipedia and I may have gotten something wrong, but I find it very strange that those kind of changes about a scientific stub article "did not appear to be useful", because if so, I'm not really sure what would be useful edit. So I think your Bot over-reacted.

Would you mind having a look?

RFR archives[change source]

Hi! I notice Chris_G_Bot_3 is archiving WP:RFR nicely, but no pages link to the archives it creates. Do you want to create the archive template/page, or should I mention it on WT:RFR or ST? (I'm not being sarcastic, by the way. Your bots do excellent work. I just don't feel like doing up the archive link template myself. :) Toliar (talk) 01:22, 3 March 2009 (UTC)

 Done --Chris 13:14, 6 March 2009 (UTC)

Bot flag[change source]

I noticed that, while this is an approved bot with "bots" privileges, the edits that it is making are not flagged with "b". I don't really care, but I'm not sure if you were aware of that or if it's important. EhJJ (talk) 03:55, 4 March 2009 (UTC)

It does have a bot flag however reverts and when the bot tags a page for deletion are shown in the rc feed because other users may need to see them. When the bot warns a user the edit is flagged with 'b' and thus doesn't show up in recent changes, because other users don't need to see warnings. --Chris 09:13, 4 March 2009 (UTC)

Hello, Chris G. I have completed the text for the sandbox header. I also fixed the reset link. You may change the bot's info to the following:
