Discussion
IF anyone would like to suggest a pause time then please do. This bot is proposed as a temporary bot as no other wikipedia sandbox cleaning bots are active. ·Add§hore· Talk/Cont 07:04, 3 May 2008 (UTC)
Which PHP framework it will use? MaxSem(Han shot first!) 08:03, 3 May 2008 (UTC)
Already made under cluebot (wikibot.classes.php). ·Add§hore· Talk/Cont 08:06, 3 May 2008 (UTC)
There are already 2 bots doing this, OverlordQBot and SoxBot IV. Although, no problems with duplicates. SoxBot IV has its source published, in case you need an example.

OverlordQBot is currently inactive due to a PoCo::Client::HTTP bug. And SoxBot IV hasn't touched any sandbox in nearly a month. This bot i have already works / already made now. ·Add§hore· Talk/Cont 14:11, 3 May 2008 (UTC)
Really? Well, I'll go fix the code then.

I see no problems here while I fix the code, and the sandbox needs this:
Approved for trial (25 edits). Please provide a link to the relevant contributions and/or diffs when the trial is complete.

25 edits done, but many were done trying to fix my problems. I'll let it run for another 50 edits.
Approved for trial (50 edits). Please provide a link to the relevant contributions and/or diffs when the trial is complete. I can't approve this yet, however, as I have a semi COI with it (it's based on my code).

Now done 56 out of the total 75 allowed edits. ·Add§hore· Talk/Cont 13:14, 4 May 2008 (UTC)
Ok i think that is now all of the trial edits done so i have turned the bot off until i get another response. ·Add§hore· Talk/Cont 19:23, 4 May 2008 (UTC)
