semi-automated edits being misreported
Closed, ResolvedPublic


I am reported as having made four AWBedits, despite the fact that I've never used it. To save the time and resources of regenerating the query, the reported edits are this one to Carmel-by-the-Sea, California, and edits involving this history merge I did on the AWB page itself. The latter case is probably very rare (outside of protections of the page), but the former is likely to be more common.

I have a fix for this that will get deployed soon. However, there is still a (slight) possibility that other edits will get misidentified, depending on how you write your edit summary. I now have AutoEdits looking for summaries like using [[WP:AWB or using [[Wikipedia:AutoWikiBrowser, etc., which is less likely to match manually entered summaries.

Thanks for the report!
