Wikilabs perl guru?

Hi. As described in more detail here, I am having problems accessing a Wikilabs local perl library that I have created. Do you know of anyone that might be able to advise me on how to get this to work? Thanks. Boghog (talk) 18:40, 31 October 2013 (UTC)Reply

Best guru I know is Marc-Andre see his talk page User_talk:Coren or just send a mail to labs-l@lists.wikimedia.org, he is watching that for sure petrb (talk) 19:35, 31 October 2013 (UTC)Reply
Thanks! I will ask Marc-Andre. Cheers. Boghog (talk) 19:57, 31 October 2013 (UTC)Reply

Request to fix Citation bot

Sorry to bug; you are listed on Wikipedia > Interactome > (citation bot) jump the queue > project administrator page. The citation bot has been EXTREMELY important for a lot of people to add scientifically correct citations to Wikipedia pages (such as the students who I teach to edit Wikipedia), but it broke again a few weeks ago. This happened before but someone fixed it; not sure who it was as the contact info got lost on the aforementioned bot page. Maybe someone can take care of it. Thanks!

What happened to it? --Nemo 13:04, 17 April 2014 (UTC)Reply

It stopped working as we aren't using apache anymore to server webpages. There are no stats from which we could parse this from now :/ petrb (talk) 11:28, 27 April 2014 (UTC)Reply
nginx has similar looking logs in /var/log/nginx/access.log on tools-webproxy, so we could resurrect my sketch for Apache and amend it. Nemo, do you want to file a bug? --Tim Landscheidt (talk) 13:54, 27 April 2014 (UTC)Reply

awstats Tool Review

Hi, we're doing a review to make sure as many tools meet a minimum standard. I noticed awstats doesn't have a description on toolsadmin or a published repo. Could you add this information to this tool? Thanks! Komla Sapaty (talk) 20:55, 3 April 2023 (UTC)Reply
