This is more an announcement than a discussion point - PointyBot got broke a few days ago after a MediaWiki update to the way the Image Upload page works. (No damage was done to the wiki - PointyBot just couldn't upload new chart images). I've just finished repairing it so it can use the new page and I'm running a full update now so charts should get refreshed and the Wanted Pages should shrink over the next 24 hours.

I'm also planning to put the PointyBot code up as a download on a public server somewhere so the Exchange charts can continue if I get hit by a bus. I'm cleaning the code up a bit first so it's a bit less embarrassing when it gets picked over - I'll post the location once I've uploaded it. Pointy 23:46, 25 February 2008 (UTC)

I've just uploaded the first part of the source code for PointyBot to http://www.codeplex.com/wikibot. (CodePlex is a free project hosting site like SourceForge, but hosted by Microsoft). The download on the "Source Code" tab contains the actual code. I've only uploaded my general Wikia library code so far, and not the part that actually generates the charts, but I'll get round to that at some point soon. Cheers. Pointy 23:49, 6 March 2008 (UTC)
