10:31:12 < Hello71> ty: TyBot seems to be running off of old data, see http://runescape.wikia.com/wiki/Exchange:Bond?action=history
10:31:31 < Hello71> dunno if this is the bot's fault or api providing old data
10:53:42 <@ty> ~add_items
10:54:44 <@ty> Hello71: I'd like to think it is the api's fault, since there hasn't been any changes to the bot's code
11:10:40 < tybot> GE updates complete!
Notice of intent - TyBot's list is up to date and most items appear to be updating correctly. However, the newer items don't appear to be updating and as such I'm awaiting Ty's confirmation of everything working correctly before closing this.
Given that this is the third time I've contacted Wikia mere days after requesting they unprotected the namespace to reprotect it, I question whether it is really a good idea to have it protected in this manner as opposed to using our own abusefilter. We can manage it ourselves which seems far more flexible and easier to alter when bugs like this occur.
- AFAIK, abuse filters can only take action once the edit is submitted, not before. ⁓ Hello71 21:27, October 15, 2013 (UTC)
- That doesn't mean the end result will be any different. An abuse filter to prevent edits to a namespace will accomplish the goal as protected the namespace. Furthermore, the edit button can be removed with css, so the fact that the abuse filter doesn't actually do anything until an attempt to edit is made should be considered irrelevant.

- It looks like things will work nicely, but I'm waiting for the next GE Update to say anything definite. 14:10, October 16, 2013 (UTC)
