Chenzw is trying to take a short wikibreak and will be back on Wikipedia soon. For urgent issues and those related to ChenzwBot, please send an email. Most likely, however, Chenzw will not be able to keep away from Wikipedia for that long, and will probably be back a lot earlier while making some small edits every once in a while anyway.

Hi Chenzw, your bot didn't edit for at least 10 days already, could you fix it? (Talk/留言/토론/Discussion) 14:15, 17 September 2019 (UTC)


  • ChenzwBot reverted to a vandalised version of Sahara by reverting to an IP rather than last registered user. See 6 August 2019. Macdonald-ross (talk) 08:11, 19 September 2019 (UTC)
Unfortunately, that is a limitation of MediaWiki's rollback tool. Rollback reverts changes by one specific user. Incidentally, it also means that the bot didn't manage to detect the earlier diff as vandalism. Chenzw  Talk  11:38, 19 September 2019 (UTC)
chenzw i don't mean any offense but i'd appreciate if you picked to either be active or don't. Computer Fizz (talk) 08:13, 19 September 2019 (UTC)
I don't know what you are trying to insinuate here. Do you have a suggestion for what I should do? Chenzw  Talk  11:38, 19 September 2019 (UTC)
Excuse me? Everyone is a volunteer here. We take as much activity as they can give. You have no idea what is going on in an editors life away from here. This was an extremely poor comment. -DJSasso (talk) 14:12, 19 September 2019 (UTC)
Really Computer Fizz? I really think you ought to be polite and be thankful for the work they have done, there is no requirement for activity. So how about you take your disrespect and keep it to yourself! Your comment was uncalled for. Ⓩⓟⓟⓘⓧ Talk 15:12, 19 September 2019 (UTC)
I think I phrased my comment poorly. I wasn't trying to say that he needs to be more active, if he chooses not to that's fine. I meant that the wiki is in a weird situation where we "need" him. As for what I think chenzw should do, I think you should allow someone else to run the anti vandal bot. Probably not me though, i have no idea how to run a bot that complicated. — Preceding unsigned comment added by Computer Fizz (talkcontribs)
I am sure if he didn't think he could be here anymore he would hand the bot over to someone like me and we would be ok. It hasn't been that big an issue so far. -DJSasso (talk) 16:47, 19 September 2019 (UTC)
Computer Fizz, I can’t speak for everyone but I have full trust in Chenzw’s ability to make the right decisions when it comes to the bot. Ⓩⓟⓟⓘⓧ Talk 17:16, 19 September 2019 (UTC)
