GuildWiki:Cleanup after Maybot

From GuildWiki
Jump to: navigation, search
  • Action item: having human eyes double-check every article touched by Maybot between May 8th and May 9th, and fix anything that is screwed up.
  • Instructions: For each article, go to its history, compare the version right before Maybot's first edit vs the current revision, and check the diff for any screwed up link-to-template replacements.
  • Example of something that needs fixing: [1]
  • Maybot changed some html &-codes to UTF-8 glyphs. This is another representation of the same character and shouldn't be a problem, so I'm not changing those either. Examples: The dagger glyph in Skuld's signature (2x so far); a bullet. (mendel)
  • So far the MayBot signature link rewrites seem to have gone mostly well, except for one place where the HTML code shouldn't have been converted to UTF-8 because it was a HTML code demo.
  • So far, MayBot screwed up every time when the summary read (Re-doing links as per GuildWiki:Bot tasks.) and (Bot test.). Anything on May 8th is suspect. (mendel)
  • New error type: bot meddled with {{build archive|[[User:JapsMan/D any Mystic Renewal]]}}, rewriting to {{DeletedLink}}|[[User:JapsMan/D any Mystic Renewal]]}} (mendel)


Please find some semi-intelligent way to divide up the work[edit source]

  • User:PanSola (talk to the Follower of Lyssa.png) won't be able to start until this weekend. BTW, please dont' suggest using a bot for this project. We really need human eyes to sanity-check the diffs. Some of the issues are cleaned up already, some are not.
A sane way to go after this is to divide it up by namespace, mainly because the contributions list can be filtered that way. Sign your work. I already did the no-brainers. ;-) mendel 10:23, 28 May 2008 (UTC)
  • MaySig.png Warw/Wick - I can clear up after myself.
Please feel free. mendel 10:35, 28 May 2008 (UTC)

Namespaces to do[edit source]

Namespaces being worked on[edit source]

  • User:

All Maybot edits in the User: namespace from 17:48, 8 May 2008 to 18:41, 8 May 2008 have now been cleanly reverted. Earlier reverts have also reverted Ishmael edits, this concerns the following list: User:Ttibot/Archive builds/Team - Nightmare Spike User:Korineczek/Shockwaver User:Ekrin/Builds User:Harleynhondo User:Namnatulco/bvp User:Nog64/Build Talk Archive User:Friend of Chaos/HelpfulStuff User:Jagre/Funny User:Namnatulco/bvp User:Sneakysmith12/vetting procedure User:Rapta/Sandbox I believe I hand-edited the even earlier edits. Edits later than 17:48 are user links rewrites, these never had any errors in the other namespaces, so I'm skipping them (more than 1000, I think). mendel 12:55, 31 May 2008 (UTC)

  • User Talk

Undid Maybot edits (and only those) in all edits of 16:42 and earlier. I'm going to use [User:M-Marvin|AWB] to go after the later ones. mendel 17:12, 1 June 2008 (UTC)
