Hello and welcome to my talk page, I am Riley Huntley. Feel free to leave me a message here or at the English Wikipedia. Thanks, Riley Huntley (talk) 20:53, 10 July 2012 (UTC)


Hello, Don't beat yourself up about your warning. I'd have probably definitely done the same thing, although templates are usually only used for obvious vandals or if they don't take a telling... Users who have been about for a bit are usually given the respect of a custom, friendly, message, so thats where my actions would have differed. I'd have poked the user with a diff showing what he'd done and gave him a gentle reminder. But really, no harm done. You followed the rules as they are written and everyone is allowed to make mistakes. Its part of life isn't it? Doing something and then finding out its not right you learn from it and don't do it again. Everyone here has done something wrong at one point or another so you're not alone. Anyway, the main reason for my message was actually to say Welcome! as I see no-one has done it yet. :) You're doing some good stuff so stick around and I'll see you somewhere else on the wiki no doubt. :) Kennedy (talk) 09:36, 13 July 2012 (UTC)


Hi again Riley! Thanks for those new uw- templates. If you're going to be copying any more of those, could you please translate them? I did two of them already, can do the others later (need to sleep now). Thanks, Osiris (talk) 00:48, 15 July 2012 (UTC)

Sorry, I will remember to do that in the future (I think I put them on the template instead of on the template doc whoops :-). Anyways, thanks for doing the first two! Riley Huntley (talk) 01:29, 15 July 2012 (UTC)
Oh, the interwikis? Yeah them too, but I mean translate the actual text into simple English. Osiris (talk) 09:19, 15 July 2012 (UTC)
I've done the rest now. There were six I think. Osiris (talk) 05:52, 18 July 2012 (UTC)

RileyBot and the sandboxEdit

Hello, Riley Huntley, your bot has been irregularly cleaning the sandboxes it has approval to clean. Concerns have been raised about this, so if you'd like to continue the task, please let us know. Otherwise, the task request I've just submitted would likely be approved in favor. Thanks.  Hazard-SJ  ✈  03:25, 23 May 2013 (UTC)

Nothing wrong with the bot, [1] should fix the issue. Riley Huntley (public) (talk) 13:56, 23 May 2013 (UTC)
OK, thanks for the update.  Hazard-SJ  ✈  02:26, 24 May 2013 (UTC)

Hello, could your bot please use Wikipedia:Sandbox/Text rather than predefined text? Thanks.  Hazard-SJ  ✈  06:29, 16 July 2013 (UTC)

I have temporary blocked your bot account per Wikipedia:Administrators noticeboard#Two different bot edits until you edit your bot to do the above. Should I not hear back from you on this issue in a week I will remove the bot flag. -DJSasso (talk) 14:44, 26 August 2013 (UTC)

Bot blockEdit


Request reason(s):
Block was temporary for conflicts with another bot, no longer an issue. Riley Huntley (talk) 05:06, 27 January 2016 (UTC)

Your request to be unblocked has been granted for the following reason(s):
Non controversial block. Chenzw  Talk  07:47, 27 January 2016 (UTC)

Paging Doctor Chenzw. Osiris (talk) 05:09, 27 January 2016 (UTC)
Clean bill of health given :)
@Riley Huntley: by the way, if it helps, User:Hazard-Bot is scheduled for sandbox cleaning every 5 hours, at 38 minutes past the hour. I don't see much an issue with 2 bots resetting the sandbox (assuming they are reset to the same content), so it's up to you whether you want to maintain this bot task. Chenzw  Talk  07:47, 27 January 2016 (UTC)
@Chenzw: I would like to continue, could the bot flag be reissued? I will not make changes until then. Riley Huntley (talk) 09:17, 27 January 2016 (UTC)
@Riley Huntley: Actually, could you run it anyway (add to cron, or whichever scheduling system you use)? Count it as a re-trial without the bot flag. I will grant the flag if there are no issues after 4 sandbox resets. Chenzw  Talk  09:23, 27 January 2016 (UTC)
@Chenzw: Added to my cron, I updated my scripts and ran a test and made an immediate correction. I'll alert you after four sandbox resets. Riley Huntley (talk) 10:52, 27 January 2016 (UTC)


@Chenzw: Had a dumb moment.. Misspelled the directory in my crontab that script was listed at, now it'll run! Riley Huntley (talk) 07:30, 29 January 2016 (UTC)
@Chenzw: Special:Contributions/RileyBot - Four as requested, cheers. Riley Huntley (talk) 22:18, 30 January 2016 (UTC)
Done! Chenzw  Talk  01:33, 31 January 2016 (UTC)
