Discussion[edit]

Please see this Phabricator ticket and this rather short discussion here, for deployment details and tracking. InternetArchiveBot is explained in more detail at m:InternetArchiveBot.—CYBERPOWER (Chat) 00:55, 19 May 2017 (UTC)

  • @Cyberpower678: Thank you for this. Under what circumstances would you anticipate exceeding 10 edits per minute? Our bot policy says "Bots' editing speed should be regulated in some way; subject to approval, bots doing non-urgent tasks may edit approximately once every ten seconds, while bots doing more urgent tasks may edit approximately once every four seconds.". Andy Mabbett (Pigsonthewing); Talk to Andy; Andy's edits 17:54, 19 May 2017 (UTC)
    At those speeds the bot will never be able to finish a run without the issue still getting larger. IABot also doesn't have a rate throttle primarily because the numerous analysis routines in use restrict the bot's speed. It's usually faster on smaller articles with URLs it already encountered once before. If I note the request above, then it operator wants to run 50/minute, that's significantly faster than what IABot is asking to do.—CYBERPOWER (Chat) 18:00, 19 May 2017 (UTC)
Policies should be viewed as guidelines and on a case by case basis, that is the job of us admins and crats. I have no issue with the speed this bot would be running, I can see that need. My support vote stands. Cheers Scott Thomson (Faendalimas) talk 19:06, 19 May 2017 (UTC)
