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.


Technically I am not a maintainer of this bot (It's bot by Magnus Manske) but I would like to ask for botflag on behalf of the Commons Administrators - who deletes the images, who occationally commands to replace files across wikis. This bot exists to assist Commons administrator's deletion, by removing usage of deleted files, and replacing files. (i.e. If Commons admin commands, bot will replace A.jpg to AB.jpg across wikimedia wikis.) By default, to prevent false positive, it waits for 10 minutes (or shorter) after deletion before CommonsDelinker starts delinking. And after then, bot will query GlobalUsage to see where it is used, and go to the page and remove the file.

  • Support. This bot has been running successfully here already, we should flag it. -- Ryan • (talk) • 17:34, 25 January 2015 (UTC)
