Hello, today I tried to archive a page using this tool. When I click analyze, it says that I can't archive the page because I'm blocked. But I'm not blocked on the wiki, and this page (https://iabot.toolforge.org/index.php?page=user&id=52135372&wiki=enwiki) doesn't say I'm blocked either. Any idea how to fix this? Thanks...
These error messages are not originating from the bot, it’s being passed back by the MW API itself when requesting the edit on behalf of the user. All users edit from the IP 22.214.171.124 which is Toolforge. This is either a glitch in the API, or there are admins hardblocking bots originating from it.
Other users (and me now, but not yesterday) are able to use the bot, so it might not be related to the IP.
It’s hard to tell. It could also be other bots/tools getting blocked at the account level with the anon-flag disabled causing the IP to be effectively be hard-blocked. I don’t know how the inner workings of MediaWiki work. All I know is that this error message comes from the API itself, and not IABot.
