Bot

Weas-El May 27, 2010 User blog:Weas-El

I'd like to use a bot on Inheriwiki. For that I need the community's approval.

The following jobs would be much easier using a bot:

  1. Updating links (there are still many redirected links, some misspelled and others left from pagemoves, see for example Special:WhatLinksHere/Eragon Bromsson or Special:WhatLinksHere/Arya)
  2. Correcting misspelled names (I already corrected a lot of accent characters manually, but there are still some left)
  3. Categorization (especially adding categories to the huge amount of files is really annoying)
  4. Maybe more, please tell me your ideas...

I just tested replacing some links, it works fine. I haven't much experience with wikibots yet, but I think this can't be too complicated. And in case I should realize that this was over my head, I would rather give it up than mess up pages.

I'm ready go get started. What do you think?

Further I'd like to flag the user as a bot, to keep the list of recent edits clear. It will still be possible to see the bot's edits by using the filter fuction. Does anybody have a problem with that?
