Wikipedia Requests has been retired. A successor may, or may not, one day exist. I think I should have advertised this better.

I want to note that we use Hotjar not for general usage stats but for user experience analysis and interface debugging.

@AManWithNoPlan Do you have any diffs of this happening on-wiki?

@Wilfredor After you submitted your first ticket I asked if you wanted to proceed with disabling talk page messages. Instead of responding you filed a second ticket. I have now disabled talk page messages.

@Cyberpower678 has this been resolved? Editing on MediaWiki.org seems to be fine (though there are other bugs)
Are there edits it was supposed to make but didn't?
The dodeurl/dodelink issue is already reported at T275025 however there is also a separate issue being reported of a false positive so I refocused this ticket to focus on that.
Diagnostic work by @Cyberpower678 and @Skizzerz indicates that this was an issue with the DB view being served to InternetArchiveBot. I made the decision to make the bot use the API instead of the database and the issue persists.

Related: the bot should recognize link parameters. https://www.mediawiki.org/w/index.php?title=Extension:AuthorReward&diff=prev&oldid=4407838&diffmode=source

I can see the reasoning behind it—it's sort of like a confirmation email. Though a setting to disable it would be useful.

The issue with false positives has apparently been resolved. Has this been mooted or is this still something that should be implemented?
