It's difficult to find the old threads you marked for deletion (they were done early to late December for various reasons). MediaWiki doesn't let me get to the thread from the category, and the post remains in the category even after a thread is closed or removed.
If there's a thread that needs to be deleted in the future, could you kindly contact me or another one of the admins? Thanks, and as always your help on Community Central is very much appreciated.
Okay so turns out it’s actually nice and straightforward to make a bot. I even ran into some troubleshooting that involved accessing the browser’s console so how’s that for an untangled knot. Cannot speak for a downloadable computer bot though check it out there is something even better (so far as I'm concerned) in a JS based bot!
This blog post explains how to make one and something practical in how to use three of the JS scripts to help in two areas namely mass categorising images and adding licensing templates to all.
The bot is actually another account that can be activated across wikis so rather than make a bunch of different bots for wikis you are able to keep it to just one and with that, think of another name! Ph1i5-B0t was perfect for me; it was an extension of my name that could be a total name or a standalone one and had the right amount of letters/numbers in the correct places, but whichever works for you.
Recommended bot names:
Botzoola - let’s everyone know it’s a bot with it in the name and you cannot go wrong with Botzoola.
348738 - A bunch of random numbers because computer code, when else would you use a load of numbers, you can even sneak in whatever numbers first come to mind there and no one will probably be able to tell.
Drewds Rulez - A fairly obvious one for you
The images in the blog should help with getting the specifics, like knowing enter is needed for FindAndReplace, at which point like everything it’s a nice leisurely process once we know how it is done.
At this point if practice to see first hand is helpful then you could request from staff the bot flag on the Banana Fish wiki (and ask for any other wiki you would like to use the bot on) and test it on the image gallery for Episode 11 if you would like to.
The process is:
Use FindAndReplace – to add image titles into MassEdit to add the licensing template.
Use FindAndReplace – to add image titles into MassCategorization to place them in categories.
FindAndReplace is like a tree with the other two being branches out of it to add the information we need for images and Episode 11/Image Gallery can be used for both.
Alternatively if you have wikis that need a bots mass edit help Ph1i5-B0t can simply help there! There are a load of other areas like MassRename, MassProtect so please do make any and all suggestions. The more areas for a bot to learn to help with the better!
Not really. I don't have a tv or any paid subscriptions to online streaming services. So the tv shows I watch are those for which episodes are avaialable for free online. For anime, there are actually quite a lot but I still have limited time. For non-anime, you pretty much have to go with pirated YouTube uploads.
By the way, I think I still haven't changed my deck one bit since our last duel. Should be interesting.
I thinking of making a new deck but I have different moves but it might be risky. I use Number 85: Crazy Box effect with the dice landed on 4 and I can negative Number 85: Crazy Box to attack a monster.
No, I haven't seen Avengers Endgame. I watch movies the way I watch TV shows. By the way, there are legally free movies on YouTube. I recently watched one of the Ip Man movies (can't remember which one).
Here's a strong suggestion: Don't talk to BigBoogie4566. He is clearly a troll abusing multiple accounts, and so are all who talk about VSTF abusing their power. (I learned that the hard way before) Just ignore, and report.
I'd like to thank you for the help you provided today. This helped clean up and helped give a more professional look to my wiki. I have less time to research these days so figuring it out on my own could have been a while, so you saved me time too.
Here’s an especially nice cookie cutter for your baking set/bot. You know how staff are able to help with correcting spelling on entire wikis, now we can too with both our JS bots using JWB!
On the wiki where you would like to use JWB, add this as a title for a new page Project:AutoWikiBrowser/Typos and add this small document. Then remove some unneeded templates, these ones from the page.
