Wikivoyage:Script nominations

From Wikivoyage
Jump to: navigation, search

According to the Wikivoyage script policy, scripts have to be approved by the Wikivoyage administrators. To create a script that runs against Wikivoyage, post the name and reason for the script beneath the line below.

Explain why we need the script, why it can't be done by hand, and what the script will do. If 2 administrators voice their support for the script and there are no unresolved objections, the script can be run with a bot flag. If objections arise later, the bot flag can be undone.

Scripts that have passed through this process can be found in Project:script nominations/Archive. The user page for any approved bot should include {{bot}} to indicate the wiki user responsible for operating the bot; a list of all active bots will then appear in Category:Wikivoyage bots.

NOTE: you must apply for approval on each language version of Wikivoyage. Approval on this page only allows you to run a bot on Wikivoyage in English.


So, this is my own bot. While browsing RC, I found this edit, and surprised that no bots were fixing them. I would like to fix this by my bot. My bot is approved on multiple wikis (kowiki, kowikisource, kowikicersity, Commons, meta and etc) to run this task, and this task is in the scope of "automatic approval". The bot's edit frequency depends on the cache update of Special:DoubleRedirects. (No edits are performed for now, because backlog is clean)

  • Just so I understand, this bot just fixes double redirects? Or does it perform other tasks? -- Ryan • (talk) • 17:16, 28 January 2015 (UTC)
    It only fixes double redirects, does not do anything else by design. — Revi 06:11, 29 January 2015 (UTC)
    • Support from me. The more of these sorts of tasks we can automate the better. -- Ryan • (talk) • 06:27, 29 January 2015 (UTC)
    • Support , one less annoyance for the reader. --Traveler100 (talk) 06:32, 29 January 2015 (UTC)
  • Flagged as bot. -- Ryan • (talk) • 06:58, 29 January 2015 (UTC)
