Discussion
Can you explain in more detail what edits your bot will make under which conditions? Will it follow {{nobots}}? rspeer / ɹəədsɹ 14:08, 4 May 2008 (UTC)
  • If it is required to follow nobots then i can make it follow nobots but i don't see why it should as the only edits it makes (adding / removing tags) will not really be wrong.
  • It will only operate in the main name space so it will not try to tag and talk pages e.t.c
  • If the page is not in a Category then the bot will add {{Uncategorized|date=*****}}
  • If the page is a dead end page the bot will add {{deadend|date=*****}}
  • If the page is an orphan the bot will add {{orphan|date=*****}}
  • If the page needs to be wikied it will add {{Wikify|date=*****}}
  • e.t.c if page is X then bot will do Y (as SQL put it)
  • If there is a tag already such as {{wikify}} without a date the bot will add the date. e.g. {{Wikify|date=May 2008}}
You can see almost 100 of these edits made under my account using AWB with no bot options / flag here ·Add§hore· Talk/Cont 15:07, 4 May 2008 (UTC)
Approved for trial (50 edits). Please provide a link to the relevant contributions and/or diffs when the trial is complete. - Will get your bot awb bot approved. —Reedy 19:00, 4 May 2008 (UTC)
All trial edits done, I whtched them go through and i don't think anything went wrong. If this bot gets approved, which i hope it does, i would ask for it to be allowed the bot flag as it makes high amounts of edits. ·Add§hore· Talk/Cont 19:20, 4 May 2008 (UTC)
Also i would like to add general fixing to this bot as this could do good as it trawls the input pages. ·Add§hore· Talk/Cont 19:25, 4 May 2008 (UTC)
No problem with you doing that. Just like User:SmackBot does as it goes around making 100's of edits :). —Reedy 19:35, 4 May 2008 (UTC)
 Approved. - Bot will run with a flag —Reedy 19:37, 4 May 2008 (UTC)
