Adding: When I try to mark an assessment for a case already on the board I get an error message "There was an error in connecting to the database"
Hello again. There's no new posts at CopyPatrol since 15:33 UTC (7 hours ago). Not sure what's going on, since there's new items posted at https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Special:Log/EranBot . So it looks to me like the bot is running, but the items it's finding are not getting posted at CopyPatrol. Thank you!

The reported issue was resolved - closing. Further improvements to the bot can be worked on, but we don't need this ticket to be kept open for that to happen. Thanks again folks.

In the recent outages, outages occurred

I think 8 times a day would be better (every 3 hours rather than every 6 hours). How does that sound?
Oct 28 2020
There were also Bad Gateway timeouts at Earwig's tool; perhaps there was an issue at Toolforge.
Is it possible that the bot is running but actually missing things during these gaps? Because it doesn't make sense to me that it would find 4 to 8 things to report each hour every hour for days, weeks, or even months at a time and then suddenly have a 4-hour gap or a series of several four-hour gaps.
The system has been behaving erratically for the last day or so with long gaps where no reports are filed. Outages from 2020-10-27 16:36 UTC to 2020-10-27 20:43; from 2020-10-28 00:23 to 2020-10-28 04:03; from 2020-10-28 04:03 to 2020-10-28 08:33; and from 2020-10-28 09:50 to present. All of these gaps are approximately 4 hours long except for the current outage, which is around 6 hours so far. Thanks for any assistance!

There's still no new reports - it's been three hours. The iThenticate links are not working either.
Oct 1 2020
Still no new reports, and iThenticate links are failing to load. I wonder if we are out of credits at the Turnitin service?
The CopyPatrol bot has stopped again. There's been no new reports for 12 hours (since 23:50 UTC yesterday - Sept 30), iThenticate reports are failing to load, and the buttons are not working. Thank you in advance for your help.

The tool has been functioning much better the last 2-3 days, with lengthy periods where it's functioning well and far shorter timeouts.

Today was an exceptionally bad day, with long outages and a few short windows of opportunity where the tool could be used. We really need this tool. :(
Feb 23 2020
The tool will not load this morning - just sitting there spinning.
Feb 22 2020
I've been having excellent results the last few hours
Feb 21 2020
Is anybody working on this? The tool is non-functional at present, timing out every time I try to perform a search. I am not getting the gateway time-out, but rather when attempting a comparison it just sits and spins for a lengthy period (5 minutes in the most recent one), eventually returning an error message such as "The URL http://www.isapindia.org/Newsletter/Feb16.html timed out before any data could be retrieved."

It appears to be working again now. Thanks, I will post again if there's more issues.
We have been getting a 504 Gateway Time-out for the last hour or so. Is there anyone around who can try to re-start this tool? Thank you.
Feb 8 2020
Working again - thanks.

I am unable to scroll down on the "set filters" menu to the point where I am actually able to activate my selections unless I shrink the screen down to 80%. The green box to save my changes disappears behind the banner at the bottom of the page. My normal usual setting is 110% zoom. I am using Chrome browser on an Acer Chromebook 11. It's not urgent, because I am not frequently participating in the new pages patrol right now.

Suggestions: (1) Prepare a survey using some or all of the questions and ask people on the leaderboard for their thoughts. (2) Write an article for The Signpost as well as the foundation blog.
