Closing as not the issue
Mar 15 2021
Thanks @Umherirrender I just did a test run using api.php and forcelinkupdate and yes it appears to work fine. So something else wrong with the bots or rate limits. So happy for this to be closed as a non issue.

Not sure if this is related or a new separate issue but I'm now noticing edits that remove all the white-space including newlines that makes determining what has been changed very difficult. This makes editing after with the source editor awful, but more importantly makes vandalism detection much harder.

Hi Ozzie10aaaa, I just looked at https://xtools.wmflabs.org/articleinfo/en.wikipedia.org/Dyslexia and I see you as rank 2 by number of edits, and 5th by bytes added, so I assume you just mean the "Top 10 by added text" pie-chart that does appear to be showing differnt data. The pie chart appears to be showing the edits without the caveat 2 on the table, so editors like the anon 220.127.116.11 who do 1 edit of 242,636 bytes is top of that one. It would seam reasonable it should show the same as the table.

Yup, I was just about to comment it was the same. I know wit says "Namespace Main" but maybe to stop confusion it should be show on the big title i..e "Automated Edits (Main Only)" or "Automated Edits (Main Namespace)" as the other selection criteria (Name and language) are show in the header lines. Just a thought.
Hmm, I would not think to go to "Automated Edits" to see the "Non-automated edits" as it seam s counter intuitive. I guess it depends what tool your considering, but I would most want to look at peoples automated edits to check out concerns or interests with those edits. If your looking at tool use by a new user, or a new user to that tool, or a user going for RfA you want to know how they use those tools. Maybe to be efficient as most times people probably do not want to see the edits have links to show latest automated and non-automated and thus only generate when required?
Ah OK sorry I missed that, I guess I expect those links at the top to be the same as the options you are currently on.

@Paracel63 - The fix is still in the state 'Pending Deployment' (see 'Tags' right hand info bar) so you wont see the fix live just yet.

@MusikAnimal I'm not sure this fix is correct - isn't the figure for with edit summaries only for live edits?. With this 'fix' it would suggest I have 10.4% without summaries rather than 0.7% which I think is more likely, and what the old xtools shows.
