This is my first daily update about my time on Wikipedia, so I apologize if it is not that appealing to read. This update is more of a rant than a diary, so please read it with a grain of salt or something.
Today started of with me noticing a malfunctioning bot.
The bot in question is run by an editor by the name of Cyberpower678, and the bot is named Cyberbot II. The editor is currently up for adminship, but not for needing administrative tools, or to perform any administrative actions. The editor is about to receive these tools for one reason alone. No, it’s not what you think, that the editor writes a lot of articles, since that seems to please voters, no. This editor is about to be sysops’ed for being great at programming bots and tools. Tools and bot which seems to be malfunctioning very often.
This time the bot repeatedly added a message on hundreds of talk pages about it having removed a spam link-tempate from the article. Normally this would be great however, this time it didn’t remove anything. It just kept on adding the message on talk page every hour or so, spamming hundreds of talk pages. Kinda ironical, if you think about it.
xTools, maintained by this user is also constantly broken, almost every single time you want to use them. Consistently demanding the tools be written in a terrible language, PHP, especially if it is used in shared environments. That is one of the reasons the tools never work, because maintainers do not want to work with this language, and therefore noone fixes problems. Still, the user keeps on using it.
Anyway, my point is that the operator of the bot and editor doesn’t seem to have any reasons for being granted adminship more than what I’ve just disproved.
Please for the love of – not God, since there are non – but for the love of Jimbo, please look at the user with a grain of salt. The user might do a lot, but not anything good. He doesn’t need the mop, what he needs is a wake up call.
