In order to keep our directory updated, to gather status updates for pages such as the utaite pages, and to in the future automatically restructure the templates of our articles as need, I would like to request that we get the bot flag for Jun's bot: UWBot. Please reply with your comments/support/objections.
Edited for better wording and to reflect new account name.
Right now, I'd like to just see if you can get the directory updates working on the bot.
After that or while you're setting that up, we sill still have to debate what to do with the other tasks (for example, what we will do if a lot of links are broken at the same time, what should happen if the link is incorrectly formatted, and what the bot should mark a link with if the other link works). Same with the third task.
" what the bot should mark a link with if the other link works)."
Sorry I don't understand ;__;
'''(Taken down on NND)'''and if both dont work, the yt link should be removed, and the lable
'''(Taken down on NND)'''included in that line.
y the nnd link shouldnt be deleted, is to keep transparency. bc sometimes i woder where a cover comes from, if its deleted. so i just want to keep the nnd link as a proof.
sure first we'll have to get the 1st thing working
We got the first task working.
As for the second task, I have more questions:
Thank you for your answers. I would like to approve a trial of 15 edits. After that, we'll review and continue our discussion.
As for task 3, I don't think that's worth the effort. It will require complex parsing of wiki pages, song types, and collab partners. You will also need a database dump and a redirect mapping. There may be ambiguities, and unspecified information in choruses. And while there aren't going to be as many malformatted pages due to the second script, there will be lots of special cases, such as multiple names for the same person or song. It will probably be best to take care of all that by hand.
Edit: Moved to Thread:10561
I have an additional bot task. I'd like to know if I, or someone else, can make the following AWB substitutions, as well as AWB's general fixes to every last one of our FUS pages:
*[[Shelley]] -> [[Shellah]] *[[SquaDus]]<br>(YT singer) -> [[SquaDus]] *[[SquaDus]] (YT singer) -> [[SquaDus]] #Remove empty lines after yt id lines *\|yt_id5 = (.*)\n\n\| -> |yt_id5 = $1\n| #Remove empty lines after nnd id lines *\|nnd_id5 = (.*)\n\n\| -> |nnd_id5 = $1\n| #Move the closing braces off of the singer line *\|singer5 = (.*)}} -> |singer5 = $1\n}}
Also, I'm going to want to know which account and who will do this, and how we are going to review the edits (we don't have standard trial periods yet, but we'll want to review them after 15 edits probably.)

If anyone wants to step forth and take care of this, go right ahead and make the first edit.
What do you think?
