GW2W:BOTS

A bot account is a special user account which has been flagged so that its edits are hidden by default on Special:RecentChanges and Special:Watchlist (visibility can be toggled with the "Show bots" option). These accounts are used to run bot scripts, programs that automate the process of performing repetitive edits across multiple pages.

While it is possible for normal users to run automated editing scripts/programs without a bot account, this is generally discouraged due to the potential for disruption, since the edits cannot be hidden from RC; this disruption is compounded if a script malfunctions.

If a bot account is observed to be malfunctioning, it is usually possible to halt the bot by posting on its talk page.

Bot tasks[edit]

Requests that have been declined and accepted tasks that have been successfully completed are eventually archived at /Resolved tasks, however they should first be posted on this page for visibility.

  • Remove all occurences of left-to-right marks (\u200E (‎)) from the wikitext of all pages in namespace 0. If there are no concerns i'll do this no sooner than in three days from now. Meanwhile i'll see to the bot and also look through all pages to see that removing them doesn't turn any text/punctuation arround or if it does that that's ok. I'll also not do this before not having looked through all pages. So whichever takes longer, not before it. (I'll probably also look through all or, depending on feasibillity, only some edits of the bot afterwards to see if things are alright also on the wiki itself.) Should be 764 edits/pages for a total of 1322 LRMs removed. Nightsky (talk) 01:36, 30 December 2020 (UTC)
I had the idea to compare them by having them be drawn onto images followed by comparing the images; so it would be the three days now. (There are no visual differences between with and without.) Nightsky (talk) 05:58, 30 December 2020 (UTC)
Alright since now three days have passed and no one raised any concerns and there aren't any open questions or anything the like either i'll have the bot do this now. Nightsky (talk) 01:42, 2 January 2021 (UTC)
Took me a second to figure out what you were removing. Carry on, it's a good idea. - Doodleplex 01:55, 2 January 2021 (UTC)
1Yes Done. Removed the expected quantity of 1322 LRMs with the expected number of 764 edits.
Notes on the Bot: The good news is that it ran into the limit again (despite the bot group seemingly being excempt from ip based ratelimiting as far as i could tell (so i didn't bother trying to hit it)) and the bot propperly sleept the programed minute. Unfortunatelly following the sleep it ran into an exception (where i'll have to see if i can figure out why exactly) except of continuing normal operation so i had to set it up again to continue propperly. Now i know there's no retry after header field included in the response that informs of the rate limit but there seems to be a mediawiki-api-error Did someone miss the X- prefix? header field so i guess that, while not usefull to me (at least at the time; never know though, might be at a later time (though i do think it's unlikely)), is something i guess. Nightsky (talk) 02:41, 2 January 2021 (UTC)
  • According Story formatting guide, Achievements should be a subsection of Walkthrough. On some story journal pages, the achievements appear as a section after walkthrough (see Destroying Destroyers as an example). It would be nice to have them formatted so that the achievements become a subsection. In other words, on story pages which have the "Achievements" section following the "Walkthrough" section, it should be turned into a subsection so that "Achievements" are contained in "Walkthrough". --Thecaligarmo (talk) 01:53, 4 January 2021 (UTC)
I might be doing something wrong here but i can only seem to find 12 pages where this is the case.
Namely the following:
  1. Taimi's Game
  2. Destroying Destroyers
  3. Igneous Breach
  4. Trip to the Circus
  5. Machine in the Flame
  6. Old Foes, Old Ghosts
  7. Dragon Vigil
  8. Journey to Bitterfrost Frontier
  9. Frozen in Ice
  10. Elixir Recipe
  11. Elixir Cookin'
  12. Bleed (story)
I don't think it needs a bot for this but again i might be missing something as this seems so few and i was expecting more for a bot edit. Could someone possibly double check i didn't miss any? I guess i can change them sometime after three days from now though unless there's any questions or anything and no one else has done it till then also i guess. (Though i'd do appreciate double checking i didn't miss any.) Nightsky (talk) 04:35, 4 January 2021 (UTC)
I double checked and that seems like a full list. I don't mind doing it by hand if it's too small for a bot. --Thecaligarmo (talk) 14:24, 4 January 2021 (UTC)
You're free to go ahead. I'd have done it manually myself then. It's not necessarily to small for a bot. A bot can also be used to do just one edit. I'd prefer to do so few edits myself instead of with the bot though; but that might just be me i guess. It's just that i guess i had expected it to be more given that Alex suggested making a bot request for it but i guess he didn't know how few it would be. Someone else can do it with a bot too instead of me if they would want to so like i don't mind. It's just that i'd do it manually following the three days if nothing else has happened in between; whichever from these happenings in between may take. But if you want to do it yourself you obviously can. Alternatively if you'd rather have me do that with the bot anyways instead of manually then i could do that too. Up to you and everyone else really; what i'm gonna do otherwise once it's been more than the three days i already stated. (I wanted to double check it myself then too but that would be then as recently i don't really have all to much time for the wiki so i'd only double check it before i'd do it if no one else has already done so untill then.) Nightsky (talk) 19:56, 4 January 2021 (UTC)
I'm so rubbish at botting I'd have to run my bot through all the story pages to confirm your findings. I didn't realise it would be a small handful of pages. -Chieftain AlexUser Chieftain Alex sig.png 20:07, 4 January 2021 (UTC)
1Yes Done by hand. -Chieftain AlexUser Chieftain Alex sig.png 20:09, 4 January 2021 (UTC)
  • Add support for a color-fur parameter to the {{Dye infobox}}, displaying it between cloth and leather to retain alphabetical order. (Or should it go at the end?) Have the bot add the parameter to all dye pages (except Hydra Dye). Additionally while adding the then new parameter also sort all parameters to some order. Also update the documentations Guild Wars 2 Wiki:Dye formatting and Template:Dye infobox to reflect the new order. (I would use name, icon, set, material, hue, kit, color-cloth, color-fur, color-leather, color-metal, color-id, bound, rarity, id (Or should it be a different order?) and remove any other parameters. (Some pages have a description parameter (42) and some a requires parameter (5), which are not used by the template and not set to any value respectively.)) I'd do it like that in three days from now. Should be 606 edits/pages. Nightsky (talk) 03:33, 7 January 2021 (UTC)
My preference would be to follow the API order, which is cloth, leather, metal, fur. It also has a more logical flow to it, to me. Greener (talk) 04:03, 7 January 2021 (UTC)
Currently we have mostly order I would prefer hue then material and rarity then bound. (Sorting infobox parameters in general is something that Doodleplex and I would like a bot to do. I will put a discussion on the Community portal.) —Kvothe (talk) 13:00, 7 January 2021 (UTC)
The order i would use is based on the current order the parameters are in on the dye pages. There's currently 53 dyes with hue then material and 553 dyes with material then hue and no dyes with bound and rarity on the same page. So i'm not quite sure what you mean by mostly the order you mention. Mostly where? (I know the item infobox has it rarity then bound for example as to which i wouldn't be opposed but i can't think of another infobox with a hue or material parameter so i'm curious about where you're coming from here.)

I guess you already noticed this as i can't find anything on the Community Portal, but to be clear: The bot would be replacing the template completely anyways. (And remove any unneccessarry spaces, (Looking at you charr dyes. (Following the Exclusive.)) parameters, (see above) correct a few incorrect hex codes, uppercase them all as that's what the majority is like but not all and whatnot.) Having it (I'm not gonna do that bare pawed.) then also sort the parameters is a marginal increase in complexity.
Also, anyone want to tie break adding the color-fur parameter at the end or between cloth and leather? Nightsky (talk) 18:02, 7 January 2021 (UTC)
I stand corrected with hue and material - should just be consistent. I would go with alphabetical for color-fur. (Did not have the time to make the community portal topic yet.) —Kvothe (talk) 19:50, 7 January 2021 (UTC)
All good. What should be consistent though? If you're thinking about the square previewing the color value being in the same possition as the parameter then i can reasure you that that's how i'm planing to add it. (With regard to that i'm assuming that everything affects both, the order of the square and of the parameter. (Please let me know in case any one of you two meant only one of the two; the square or the parameter individually.)) Nightsky (talk) 21:17, 7 January 2021 (UTC)
for no reason whatsoever I would love fur to be after cloth/leather/metal. -Chieftain AlexUser Chieftain Alex sig.png 23:11, 7 January 2021 (UTC)
Well that makes it tied again. Does anyone feel like tie breaking? Or should i simply toss a coin to decide between
name, icon, set, material, hue, kit, color-cloth, color-fur, color-leather, color-metal, color-id, rarity, bound, id
and
name, icon, set, material, hue, kit, color-cloth, color-leather, color-metal, color-fur, color-id, rarity, bound, id
right before actually doing it then? Nightsky (talk) 23:58, 8 January 2021 (UTC)
Honestly it's just the parameter order. I'll fight for the infobox display order later, pick whatever you want and add them. -Chieftain AlexUser Chieftain Alex sig.png 11:23, 9 January 2021 (UTC)
Which i would have liked to be consistent with the display order. Hence why i'm assuming both to be one and the same thing with regards to their prefered position. So it wouldn't just be the parameter order. At least that's how i had it in mind. Nightsky (talk) 17:40, 9 January 2021 (UTC)
Will do this in a bit once i got this sorted out fully. It'll be color-fur at the end for the time being. We can debate about/change this later if the need arises but it's gonna be at the end for the time being so that there's some defined way in which to do this. Nightsky (talk) 03:41, 10 January 2021 (UTC)
1Yes All seems well now. Forgot to create the property for fur - as i got sidetracked - but it exists now. Also fixed the incorrect assignment caused by Hydra Dye in conjunction with the change to the {{dye infobox}} i made. Will leave it yellow untill the thing with the order is more clear and will look out for any further anomalies in the need of correcting for a while too. Some statistics:
Pages total: 606
Distinct things done: 8

[Occurences/Distinct pages] Hopefully helpfull description of it.
[605/605] Add color-fur parameter.
[100/100] Order parameters.
[175/63] Had lowercase hex.
[11/6] Had hex value != API.
[42/42] Remove description parameter.
[47/47] Remove rarity parameter. Matches what the template determins from the value for set.
[44/44] Remove icon parameter. Matches what the template determins from the value for set.
[5/5] Remove requires parameter.
Bot notes: It propperly responds to rate limit responses now. (Well i guess it responded propperly to them before; i just made it wait to long.) Nightsky (talk) 04:42, 10 January 2021 (UTC)
(Reset indent.) So.. anything with regards to the order then still? If not i'll close this in like a week or so. Nightsky (talk) 17:36, 11 January 2021 (UTC)
Keep the parameter order like it is now. Already bugged Darquam to update his tool. —Kvothe (talk) 22:32, 11 January 2021 (UTC)
1Yes Nothing in opposition to it so i'll leave things as they are. Nightsky (talk) 00:19, 19 January 2021 (UTC)
  • Add missing "type" parameters to {{recipe}} using the API, watching out for LegendaryComponent, ShortBow, etc. -Chieftain AlexUser Chieftain Alex sig.png 23:14, 13 January 2021 (UTC)
1Yes 101 pages edited. -Chieftain AlexUser Chieftain Alex sig.png 23:14, 13 January 2021 (UTC)
  • Add new parameter resource type = Cloth / Leather / Mine / Plant / Wood to each of the {{Object infobox}} on resource node pages only, with a view to populating Property:Has gathering node type at a later date when the infobox edit is made. Use "Has object type::Resource node" to find the associated pages. -Chieftain AlexUser Chieftain Alex sig.png 21:54, 14 January 2021 (UTC)

  • Rename "id" parameter used in object infobox to "mastery id" to clarify what it's for. -Chieftain AlexUser Chieftain Alex sig.png 23:26, 1 February 2021 (UTC)
39 pages edited. -Chieftain AlexUser Chieftain Alex sig.png 23:26, 1 February 2021 (UTC)
1Yes Subsequently agreed this parameter isn't required as sufficiently documented on achievement pages, now removed the 39 completely. -Chieftain AlexUser Chieftain Alex sig.png 07:07, 2 February 2021 (UTC)
  • Remove {{stub}} from 32 pages which are already using {{section-stub}} (i.e. the missing content is specifically identified with section-stub and the stub template at the top is not helpful). -Chieftain AlexUser Chieftain Alex sig.png 13:07, 6 February 2021 (UTC)
1Yes Done. -Chieftain AlexUser Chieftain Alex sig.png 13:07, 6 February 2021 (UTC)
  • Move all Corrupted weapons to match their ingame name, Valkyrie Corrupted [X]. May also want to move the skin pages as well since they will no longer need the suffix. ----BuffsEverywhere (talk) 04:36, 7 February 2021 (UTC)
Page moves are done. I'm leaving the redirects + the skin pages where they are for convenience. Some page links still need manually edited, i'll take a look when I'm back from siberia shopping in the blizzard. -Chieftain AlexUser Chieftain Alex sig.png 09:44, 7 February 2021 (UTC)
1Yes All done, barely any bot work in there tbh. Updating on this wiki is so complicated due to all our templates! :) -Chieftain AlexUser Chieftain Alex sig.png 12:04, 7 February 2021 (UTC)
  • The skins of Flame armor previously had "Items with this skin" instead of "Acquisition" as the header for the "skin list" section (see). Maybe a bot could look through the wiki and search for more occurences. As an example Zodiac armor has the wrong/old section title. —Kvothe (talk) 12:46, 1 March 2021 (UTC)
I found some more sets that have the issue. Aetherblade armor, Braham's armor, Phalanx armor, Primeval armor, Profane armor, Rampart armor, Strider's armor, Viper's armor. If this is not a bot task, let me know - at some point I will do it. —Kvothe (talk) 13:39, 1 March 2021 (UTC)
If it's consistently applied it can be done with a bot. -Chieftain AlexUser Chieftain Alex sig.png 15:46, 1 March 2021 (UTC)
Should be always exactly == Items with this skin == on all 108 pages with this heading on them. So you should be good to go; if you want to do it. If not let me know then i'll do it. Nightsky (talk) 18:28, 1 March 2021 (UTC)
  • Remove parameter 2 from iron ore nodes (as an example) using the gather template [requested by Diego in my ingame mail for some reason...] -Chieftain AlexUser Chieftain Alex sig.png 15:46, 1 March 2021 (UTC)
I might not be understanding this correctly but if i do an my regex/filtering is correct this might only be six occurences.
  1. Strawberry Patch - {{gather|Strawberry|Strawberries}}
  2. Ancient Sapling - {{gather|Hidden Treasure (item)|Hidden Treasure}}
  3. Orrian Sapling - {{gather|Hidden Treasure (item)|Hidden Treasure}}
  4. Cabbage - {{gather|Head of Cabbage|Heads of Cabbage}}
  5. Blackberries - {{gather|Blackberry|Blackberries}}
  6. Dragon Chest (Death-Branded Shatterer) - {{gather|Crystal Infusion|Crystal Infusion of Power}}
Though there's not a single iron ore node in there so it's probbably wrong. Is this meaning {{gathering node}} instead of {{gather}}? Nightsky (talk) 18:28, 1 March 2021 (UTC)
0No Agreed, can only see the six pages with it used. Marking as don't bother. -Chieftain AlexUser Chieftain Alex sig.png 19:11, 1 March 2021 (UTC)
If he did mean {{gathering node}} however there would be 703 pages to edit per this revision. Note, need to ignore Baoba Sapling (since that's incorrectly spelled ingame in Dragonfall). -Chieftain AlexUser Chieftain Alex sig.png 19:22, 1 March 2021 (UTC)
