Comment from User:Leapinglizards5

Hello, when I attempt to install any of your censorship bots, it censors everything. I mean, I know that's the most effective way to make sure there is no offending content, but that makes it hard to use. Was it made by the penguin cabal, and if so, are there any other options for content censoring? Thank you :) Leapinglizards5 ( talk) 11:19, 29 August 2021 (UTC) August 29, 2021

Hello. First, a quick note on terminology: it's a user script, not a bot. The two scripts in question are indeed intended to censor everything, it's a bit of a tongue-in-cheek commentary on the infeasibility of reliably censoring only the "offensive" content when there are such varying standards as to what is considered "offensive" that basically anything might be considered offensive by someone somewhere. There is no "cabal", that's just another bit of humor. I don't know of any serious attempts at options for content censoring on Wikipedia, but you might look at general-purpose software like the ones listed at comparison of content-control software and providers.

Hello Anomie,

Thanks for your note on the Hakea pedunculata Talk page. I call myself "sentient" and "botanist", but definitely a complete dunce as a computer programmer and I have no idea what you mean in your add. Please help me to understand the problem. When I look at the ABRS reference in each of the first four articles in the list, I am taken to a relevant reference. I don't see a bold red error and I don't see these articles in the Category:Pages with incorrect ref formatting. Maybe if your were to explain the problem in just one article with a bit more detail (that an 8 year-old might understand), a slightly older editor would be happy to fix all the others. (Here, on my talk page or the H. pedunculata page would be fantastic.) Gderrin ( talk) 00:37, 3 September 2021 (UTC)

I've since found a mistake in the H. pedunculata article, but not the others. Gderrin ( talk) 00:45, 3 September 2021 (UTC)
@ Gderrin: The bot's message on that talk page is not saying there are errors in any other page. It is saying that it found references named "ABRS" on other pages, which you might copy into Hakea pedunculata to resolve the problem there. Anomie 00:58, 3 September 2021 (UTC)
Thanks! I guess that means the problem's sorted. Much appreciated. Gderrin ( talk) 01:03, 3 September 2021 (UTC)

Is it possible you can edit the bot so when it sees multiple WikiProject United States with different subcategories such as states or military that it compiles them under one WikiProject??? Bigmike2346 ( talk) 16:24, 11 September 2021 (UTC)
