My watchlist

You just did thousands of edits on my files like that [1]. Yes there was (through an error) a double "Country=xxx" tag, but this was not critical at all, merely a duplicate in the source text without any influence on the appearance of the description page. Actually not worthy discussing, but the problem is: you did all the edits without bot flag, and without even marking them as minor corrections. The result is, that my watchlist is now hopelessly overflooded and I cannot see any other recent changes except by you, even if I set the maximal displayed number of 1,000 changes. Therefore, you did not help in any way, but did a damage to me, because you actually abused the VFC tool to easily raise your own editcount and I cannot sufficiently monitoring my watchlist because of that. With that said, I'm tempted to report the issue on COM:ANU, but would like you to comment on it here first. Thanks --A.Savin 14:40, 14 November 2017 (UTC)

Hello A.Savin, i am doing a lot of semi-automatic cleanup tasks here. For convenience i sometimes use VFC with my normal account even for a large number of edits. This time i browsed through Category:Pages using duplicate arguments in template calls where i found your files and immediately cleaned them up. I know that it breakes some rules. And if this is really an issue for you to report it, please do. I am not here to always follow all rules but to improve the quality of metadata even if i from time to time break rules. PS: You watchlist will be ok after a time. Regards, --Arnd (talk) 15:43, 14 November 2017 (UTC)
OK, then here: Commons:Administrators'_noticeboard/User_problems#User:Aschroet. --A.Savin 16:02, 14 November 2017 (UTC)

I blocked your account since you seem to be using an unflagged bot. Please register the bot and get the flag first.--Ymblanter (talk) 07:31, 23 November 2017 (UTC)

I have unblocked you. I don't see how our policies allow to use the block button in this stage. Please first try to come to an agreement by normal talking. Also VFC is not a bot and no botflag is needed to use it. Jcb (talk) 16:27, 23 November 2017 (UTC)

email

Arnd, According to Commons notifications you send me an email. However I do not receive any emails from you. Can you send it again, or write here or on my talk page? --Jarekt (talk) 15:46, 27 November 2017 (UTC)

Hi Jarekt, thank you for asking. I asked you to help me with an issue. Since i was blocked i wrote via mail. Seems to be solved for now. --Arnd (talk) 16:04, 27 November 2017 (UTC)
Ah, yes the speed of edits by some of the tools is a blessing for some and a curse for others. --Jarekt (talk) 16:12, 27 November 2017 (UTC)

Daily gallery updater has failed on User:Aschroet/Uploads/Thuringia

Hello. This message is to inform you that a daily gallery in your userspace, User:Aschroet/Uploads/Thuringia, has failed. Due to software limitations, the bot has a hard upper-limit of about 6000 files per day (including overflow galleries), while your gallery had 17480 files.

This usually happens because a gallery is too broad, encompassing too many subcategories. Please review the logs here and request that a subcategory be excluded, or narrow your category choice(s).

Please make your request for removal within 4 days, or your gallery will be subject to removal.

Thank you. Magog the Ogre (via OgreBot (talk) 03:19, 21 December 2017 (UTC))
