-Chieftain AlexUser Chieftain Alex sig.png 09:09, 9 April 2014 (UTC)

1Yes Done with AWB. 164 pages edited. -Chieftain AlexUser Chieftain Alex sig.png 13:36, 26 April 2014 (UTC)
  • Add "objectives = y" to the area infobox of the pages listed at [[User:Chieftain Alex/sandbox7]] (i.e. everywhere that contributes towards map completion). Relyk thinks its simpler if we set the default to be "n" rather than "y", and so if we set this parameter on these pages then we can massively simplify the smw logic in {{Location infobox}}. -Chieftain AlexUser Chieftain Alex sig.png 10:57, 31 December 2013 (UTC)
done with AWB. now that the infobox has been updated, we could now remove the wp/v/sc/poi/heart parameters from the same pages. -Chieftain AlexUser Chieftain Alex sig.png 10:00, 6 January 2014 (UTC)
  • Update all transclusions of Template:Skill infobox/effects to Template:Skill fact. Just posting here for documentation purposes, I'll be commencing this task immediately. —Dr Ishmael User Dr ishmael Diablo the chicken.png 15:31, 4 December 2013 (UTC)
1610 pages botted with AWB, 6 pages edited manually due to having 2 spaces in Skill  infobox/effects. The redirect is still used on a bunch of talkpages and userpages, including User:Erasculio's full replication of profession skills. —Dr Ishmael User Dr ishmael Diablo the chicken.png 17:29, 4 December 2013 (UTC)
Each page will need moving, blanking + unblanking (smw), and then the correcting of the links/names.
The corresponding files are currently in the process of being moved. No renaming of the icon parameter in the infobox will be required since there is an icon for each page. (1:1 mapping)
Template:Dungeon equipment has temporarily had the subobjects removed to prevent irrecoverable smw fuckups. -AWB Alex User AWB Alex sig.png 14:13, 27 April 2014 (UTC)
138 files moved. -Chieftain AlexUser Chieftain Alex sig.png 17:11, 27 April 2014 (UTC)
done by poke. -Chieftain AlexUser Chieftain Alex sig.png 12:10, 28 April 2014 (UTC)
  • While I'm pestering, I'm sure that User:Dr ishmael has a nice up to date list of the stats for the Rune + Sigil individual pages (summary has been updated, but most individual pages untouched). With a copy of that on a spreadsheet (csv is fine) I could bot it onto the pages if you cba. (separate lines for each rune bonus tier) -Chieftain AlexUser Chieftain Alex sig.png 10:39, 1 May 2014 (UTC)
    /burp That's just runes, I feel like doing the sigils myself. :P —Dr Ishmael User Dr ishmael Diablo the chicken.png 15:25, 1 May 2014 (UTC)
    Update: sigils done. —Dr Ishmael User Dr ishmael Diablo the chicken.png 16:45, 1 May 2014 (UTC)
    Just beginning the Runes, took a while to wikify everything. -Chieftain AlexUser Chieftain Alex sig.png 16:55, 1 May 2014 (UTC)
Done I think. I'll null edit the rune overview pages too. Edit, per User:Chieftain Alex/sandbox2 I've found some more items that need moving/renaming. -Chieftain AlexUser Chieftain Alex sig.png 17:43, 1 May 2014 (UTC)
Those are all renames.
[edit] Oh, you and your comment edits that I don't see until after I post my own comment about the same thing. :P —Dr Ishmael User Dr ishmael Diablo the chicken.png 18:18, 1 May 2014 (UTC)
The minor/major Resistance runes are the same as the minor/major Sigil of Momentum - they were never implemented to Live. —Dr Ishmael User Dr ishmael Diablo the chicken.png 18:20, 1 May 2014 (UTC)
Finally done. fixed links n everything. I did however spot that the dungeon vendor pages need updating to match the new piece names on my way past. #neverendingtask -Chieftain AlexUser Chieftain Alex sig.png 19:02, 1 May 2014 (UTC)
  • Looking through the orphaned pages, I found a large number with "level = 0" in the infobox. These are all city based NPCs. It seems that these are, in fact, levelless. I wonder of a bot would be the easiest way to eliminate this "problem". Thanks. --Rhynchelma (talk) 17:11, 23 May 2014 (UTC)
0 means the NPC doesn't have a level.--Relyk ~ talk < 01:56, 26 May 2014 (UTC)
Looking at NPCs, they display their level. By and large, the city ones do not display a level, and can be presumed to be level-less. Conventionally, those NPCs did not have a level parameter in their info boxes. If there is a move to put "level = 0" then fine. Otherwise, my request for a bot stands. Thanks. --Rhynchelma (talk) 04:01, 26 May 2014 (UTC)
I just edited the infobox to ignore an input value of 0. There's no need to run a bot anymore. —Dr Ishmael User Dr ishmael Diablo the chicken.png 14:15, 26 May 2014 (UTC)
Wry humour: this reminds me of a recent story about my city council. When tasked with "why don't you clean up illegal dumping within 48 hours as promised on your website" they didn't clean it up, they removed the promise from the website. Not a direct analogy but... Thanks. --Rhynchelma (talk) 17:05, 26 May 2014 (UTC)
  • We've got loads of pages using {{PvP recipe}}, and unless I misunderstood the wardrobe changes, these are no longer valid? Perhaps we need to think about cleaning them up/deleting? -Chieftain AlexUser Chieftain Alex sig.png 09:14, 1 May 2014 (UTC)
I think that just adding the historical=y flag to the infoboxes would work. For those that don't have infoboxes just add {{historical content}}. Maybe add a note to those pages about the wardrobe changes. Anzenketh (talk)
these ones all have infoboxes, I'll bot add historical = y in a minute. -Chieftain AlexUser Chieftain Alex sig.png 19:55, 28 May 2014 (UTC)


  • Can we have a bot go though and flag all items in the category [[:Category:PvP crafting materials]] as historical by adding the historical = y flag to Item infobox if the historical flag does not already exist. For those that don't have infoboxes just add {{historical content}}. Maybe add a note to those pages about the wardrobe changes.Anzenketh (talk) 00:10, 26 May 2014 (UTC)
Marked as historical. No wardrobe notes added. -Chieftain AlexUser Chieftain Alex sig.png 21:58, 28 May 2014 (UTC)
  • Historian Symon Has moved his location I have reviewed his linked pages and determined the following pages need to be bot fixed to change the location under the Acquisition Section of the page. Anzenketh (talk) 22:43, 29 May 2014 (UTC)
  • Seraph Outfitter Eva Has moved location I have reviewed his linked pages and determined the following pages need to be bot fixed to change the location under the Acquisition Section of the page. Anzenketh (talk) 23:35, 29 May 2014 (UTC)
  • Unless a bot is doing it I don't want to go though all those pages manually. When I could just run a search to find pages that are incorrect. Manually view those changes for ability to be changed via bot without causing damage. I am requesting that a bot goes though the what links here pages for the following NPCs Valiant Saeraquel,Officer Veros,Morro,Officer Hetja,Ulof Sindersson,Peacemaker Skrimm, and change any references under the Acquisition header where [[Gendarran Fields]] fields is mentioned and change it to [[Lion's Arch]] also any mention of Vigil Keep under the Acquisition header should be changed to [[Postern Ward]] same with any mention of [[Fort Marriner]]. Alternatively you could just give me a bot flag and I will do it myself. Alternatively you can update the aquisition field to use the {{Location result}} template. It would work fine in this case as there is only one location for the NPC's we are updating. Anzenketh (talk) 00:45, 30 May 2014 (UTC)
Try and keep it brief. The above 4 lines of text could have been one request such as "fix locations for items sold by dungeon merchant npcs, it should be [[Lion's Arch]], [[Postern Ward]].
Done with standard formatting, not with any templates with 37 #ifeq's in them. -Chieftain AlexUser Chieftain Alex sig.png 09:08, 31 May 2014 (UTC)
done. I much prefer a raw wikitext list to any google spreadsheet since google docs generates random crap characters instead of spaces + these affect the page generation in AWB. -Chieftain AlexUser Chieftain Alex sig.png 09:40, 31 May 2014 (UTC)
  • Is it possible to have some sort of a recurring task that takes the most recent Game updates section and flags anything listed in the categories Category:Skills,Category:Effects,Category:Traits as {{out of date}} when a new build is released this way players can be notified if a skill or trait needs to be updated. That is unless we don't have a better way that skills and trait pages are being updated. Anzenketh (talk) 14:16, 30 May 2014 (UTC)
0No That'd be really irritating for readers >.< + unlikely to be bottable since things that are wiki-linked are not necessarily being updated.. e.g. "the [[Fire Nova]] caused by Superior Rune of the Baelfire now does half as much damage" -Chieftain AlexUser Chieftain Alex sig.png 09:08, 31 May 2014 (UTC)
  • Just for reference sake, I've just run a bot through all of the exotic armor sets to convert item stats to prefix. (had to manually add the pages every 6 edits or so, so reviewed everything) -Chieftain AlexUser Chieftain Alex sig.png 17:20, 22 June 2014 (UTC)
  • Go though every page that links to {{vendor table row}} determine if it contains {{vendor list}} if it does not then update it so that it uses {{vendor list|PageName}} in the acquisition section. Exclude anything that is sold by a standard merchant.
Would this be a good task for a bot. If it is not good for a bot then let me know I will do it manually. Anzenketh (talk) 01:30, 3 June 2014 (UTC)
0No This seems to have been done by hand in many cases. Plus it would be awkward to bot. -Chieftain AlexUser Chieftain Alex sig.png 18:16, 30 March 2015 (UTC)
  • Add Acquisition and {{contained in}} to each dye page. I think only the exclusive dyes currently list any sources. Mora 03:19, 9 July 2014 (UTC)
1Yes done. (not checked for problems) -Chieftain AlexUser Chieftain Alex sig.png 21:04, 9 July 2014 (UTC)
  • Just recording this here for documentation's sake, but I've run a bot through all of the various ascended weapon pages to add the skin to the infobox. I've then gone and created the skin pages (also with a bot) including intro text, infobox with id, gallery, icon, and a link to items using that skin. -Chieftain AlexUser Chieftain Alex sig.png 21:05, 8 August 2014 (UTC)
1Yes done -Chieftain AlexUser Chieftain Alex sig.png 21:05, 8 August 2014 (UTC)
  • Would it be bottable to go through every ascended item page and remove "Soulbound on Use", since none(?) are anymore? They should just be account bound. Vili 点 User talk:Vili 06:27, 16 August 2014 (UTC)
1Yes done for armor and weapons (700 pages). From the tiny selection of ascended trinkets that I looked at, it seems they are already denoted as account bound. -Chieftain AlexUser Chieftain Alex sig.png 11:56, 16 August 2014 (UTC)
1Yes in progress - 937 edits done, 2500 or so remaining. -Chieftain AlexUser Chieftain Alex sig.png 19:42, 22 February 2015 (UTC)
1Yes now complete. ~3000 file pages edited. -Chieftain AlexUser Chieftain Alex sig.png 21:43, 22 February 2015 (UTC)
  • Adding attribution to the images that Ventriloquist has previously uploaded from the german wiki: Image courtesy of the german wiki's armor project. Originally uploaded by [[:de:Benutzer:Chiubi|User:Chiubi]] with the assistance of [[:de:Benutzer:Think|User:Think]].. Also recategorizing from plain {{ArenaNet image|screenshot}} to {{ArenaNet image|screenshot|Armor gallery images}} while I'm here (1200 files). -Chieftain AlexUser Chieftain Alex sig.png 14:54, 28 February 2015 (UTC)
  • Currently adding weapon set parameter to all crafted ascended weapons. -Chieftain AlexUser Chieftain Alex sig.png 18:20, 29 April 2015 (UTC)
  • WvW Zone pages contain information that properly belongs in WvW area pages, including Allies, Services, Crafters, Pets, Foes and Crafting Resources. ~ 1Maven (talk) 16:24, 8 May 2015 (UTC)
How exactly do you anticipate that this task could be automated?... the bot won't know the proper location of any of the sub items. -Chieftain AlexUser Chieftain Alex sig.png 12:50, 23 May 2015 (UTC)
  • I'm going through every area page that contributes to map objectives (i.e. Property:Has map objectives=Y) at the moment, turning {{map icon}} into {{map objective}}. Complete automation is virtually impossible due to the random layout nature of our location pages. Up to letter D at the moment. I'm not adding the IDs at the moment, that will be a later task, possibly tomorrow. -Chieftain AlexUser Chieftain Alex sig.png 12:50, 23 May 2015 (UTC)
1Yes Finished converting from {{map icon}} → {{map objective}}, 610 edits, 170 skipped. -Chieftain AlexUser Chieftain Alex sig.png 14:14, 23 May 2015 (UTC)
  • To convert {{crafting infobox}} to {{item infobox}}: remove armorsmith, artificer, chef, huntsman, jeweler, leatherworker, tailor and weaponsmith parameters and change basic, common, fine, rare and ascended type arguments to basic material, common material... Raljeor (talk) 14:23, 23 May 2015 (UTC)
Did you per chance break item infobox and cause it to permanently display "Disciplines"?.. -Chieftain AlexUser Chieftain Alex sig.png 08:21, 6 June 2015 (UTC)
No, that was Relyk. Raljeor (talk) 08:36, 6 June 2015 (UTC)
I've setup the regex required for this task, but I don't think I agree with the new value for "type"... The choices should either be the headings in the material storage pane, or they should all be "Crafting material". -Chieftain AlexUser Chieftain Alex sig.png 09:12, 6 June 2015 (UTC)
We copied from {{Crafting infobox}}. Autocategorization uses the type (soup, etc.) so we wouldn't be missing a [[Category:Soups]] e.g. But let's see what others think. Raljeor (talk) 09:35, 6 June 2015 (UTC)
I've edited the item infobox further. Tasks I will probably carry out later today:
  • Rename "{{crafting infobox" → "{{item infobox"
  • Remove old discipline parameters "(armorsmith|artificer|chef|huntsman|jeweler|leatherworker|tailor|weaponsmith)"
  • Rename original "type" parameter to "material type"
  • Correct "material type = common" with "material type = basic"
  • Add "type = crafting material"
-Chieftain AlexUser Chieftain Alex sig.png 12:20, 10 June 2015 (UTC)
1Yes 1487 pages edited. Unforuntately I've made a blunder and replaced "material type = common" with "material type = basic" whereas it should be common. A later task. -Chieftain AlexUser Chieftain Alex sig.png 16:47, 10 June 2015 (UTC)
Somehow skipped pages with "Jewel" in the title, running the bot over the remaining 83 pages... -Chieftain AlexUser Chieftain Alex sig.png 20:20, 11 June 2015 (UTC)
1Yes Done. -Chieftain AlexUser Chieftain Alex sig.png 08:21, 6 June 2015 (UTC)
1Yes Collection parameter added. The collection seems to unlock with the skins, so I've added the collection parameter to the pages that use the skin infobox first... and then I've added it to the item pages with those skins.
I can't recall how we format (in terms of headers - == Recipe == followed by == Acquisition == seems odd) an item that can both be crafted or found so I've left out the addition of "contained in" at the moment. -Chieftain AlexUser Chieftain Alex sig.png 08:21, 6 June 2015 (UTC)
  • Replace – with - in the levels parameter of {{Location infobox}}. Change is safe, the code is backwards compatible.--Relyk ~ talk < 23:36, 31 May 2015 (UTC)
Easy enough for me to do, but why change it? The infobox code is converting hyphen to emdash anyway, and imo it should be longer dashes between ranges not hyphens/minus signs. -Chieftain AlexUser Chieftain Alex sig.png 08:21, 6 June 2015 (UTC)
That's the point. I don't have an ndash key or want to type in & ndash; every time.--Relyk ~ talk < 15:25, 10 June 2015 (UTC)
  • You're asking me to replace a longer endash "–", with a hyphen/minus sign "-".
  • I previously thought that the long em dash was the proper symbol to use. However based on w:Dash#En dash I now think the endash is the one we should be using...
  • The endash does look very similar to the - sign.
 :/ whatever I'll make it so that the displayed entry is definitely an ndash. -Chieftain AlexUser Chieftain Alex sig.png 15:50, 10 June 2015 (UTC)
Yes, you are repeating what I'm saying... The template already displays the endash. The parameter should use a dash. Good job refactoring my code to be more verbose and less clear I guess?--Relyk ~ talk < 16:55, 10 June 2015 (UTC)
0No Formatting on pages with level ranges checked + enforced endash "–". Did not carry out requested task.
meh. a) your code didn't work for claw island, and b) the upper level wasn't set for single value locations. -Chieftain AlexUser Chieftain Alex sig.png 17:37, 10 June 2015 (UTC)
Well fuck it, I'll do it manually.--Relyk ~ talk < 18:00, 10 June 2015 (UTC)
  • Add personal story chapter and step numbers to {{tl|personal storyline infobox}} using User:AWB Alex/subst. chapter number = ... | step number = ... . These will be used to semantically annotate missions. -Chieftain AlexUser Chieftain Alex sig.png 12:31, 18 June 2015 (UTC)
1Yes Complete, 298 pages edited. Also cleaned up whitespace around titles and infobox indents. -Chieftain AlexUser Chieftain Alex sig.png 12:31, 18 June 2015 (UTC)
  • I've hunted down a bunch of pages which use {{historical content}} directly instead of invoking it via the infobox. Removing notice from top, adding it into infobox with | status = historical -Chieftain AlexUser Chieftain Alex sig.png 15:05, 18 June 2015 (UTC)
1Yes Complete, 57 pages edited. -Chieftain AlexUser Chieftain Alex sig.png 15:05, 18 June 2015 (UTC)
1Yes Complete. 240 edits for skill-point, 186 edits for tier, and 588 edits for numeral. —Dr Ishmael User Dr ishmael Diablo the chicken.png 14:36, 24 June 2015 (UTC)
  • Recording for documentation's sake: I've been moving gem store skin gallery files as requested by User:Greener on my talk page, and I've also run a short AWB session to fix links to them from the armor gallery overview pages. -Chieftain AlexUser Chieftain Alex sig.png 10:41, 21 July 2015 (UTC)
1Yes First run (Aetherblade Light Armor Skin, Aetherblade Medium Armor Skin, Aetherblade Heavy Armor Skin, Zodiac Light Armor Skin, Zodiac Medium Armor Skin, Zodiac Heavy Armor Skin, Braham's Heavy Armor Skin, Magitech Medium Armor Skin, Phoenix Light Armor Skin) [180 pages moved, 180 file summaries updated, 30 armor gallery overview links updated] -Chieftain AlexUser Chieftain Alex sig.png 21:47, 18 July 2015
1Yes Second run (Phalanx Heavy-Armor Skin, Viper's Medium-Armor Skin, Trickster's Light-Armor Skin) [60 pages moved, 60 file summaries updated, 30 armor gallery overview links updated] -Chieftain AlexUser Chieftain Alex sig.png 10:41, 21 July 2015 (UTC)
1Yes Third run (Flamewrath Heavy Armor Skin, Flamewalker Medium Armor Skin, Flamekissed Light Armor Skin) [49 files moved, etc (some charr images missing)] -Chieftain AlexUser Chieftain Alex sig.png 08:46, 23 July 2015 (UTC)
1Yes Fourth run (Rampart Heavy Armor Skin, Strider's Medium Armor Skin, Incarnate Light Armor Skin) [60]. -Chieftain AlexUser Chieftain Alex sig.png 08:47, 24 July 2015 (UTC)
1Yes Fifth run - wasn't actually requested but seems highly likely. (Profane Light Armor Skin, Krytan Medium Armor Skin, Primeval Heavy Armor Skin) [60] -Chieftain AlexUser Chieftain Alex sig.png 08:58, 24 July 2015 (UTC)
  • Update {{Location infobox}} pages to use hero challenges instead of skill-challenges.
1Yes Updated all pages where "Has hero challenges" had been set (189) + zone pages that used {{map icon|skill}}. -Chieftain AlexUser Chieftain Alex sig.png 11:39, 22 July 2015 (UTC)
  • Update story pages to use {{story reward}} rather than directly using the {{reward}} subtemplates. (this change provides an edit link to the subtemplate page). Per request by relyk in guild chat.
1Yes Done. Spot checked a few pages and had to pass order+race parameters back to the subtemplates, but otherwise appears to be problem free. -Chieftain AlexUser Chieftain Alex sig.png 01:22, 24 October 2015 (UTC)
  • Have a bot run thought the API and create the recipe pages for the scribe {{recipe}}. Also have the bot run though and add the new recipes added for the other crafting professions.
Not a bot-able task. Especially the updates. —Dr Ishmael User Dr ishmael Diablo the chicken.png 23:57, 28 October 2015 (UTC)
Oh joy. Lots of lots of pages need to be created/updated for scribe then. I wish I ran the API on items and recipe before HoT hit so that I can know what was added. None of the API's sites are updated yet either for the scribe. 97.126.141.231 00:23, 29 October 2015 (UTC)
I can understand not updating is a bot-able task. What is the reason behind creating a page not being a bot-able task. This is so I don't ask for something similar in the future. Or that I don't assume something is not bot-able when it is. Anzenketh (talk) 14:27, 29 October 2015 (UTC)
A bot-able task is something where you are performing the same actions to a specific set of pages. The most common are find-and-replace operations. —Dr Ishmael User Dr ishmael Diablo the chicken.png 16:33, 29 October 2015 (UTC)
Provided that all of the data can be laid out beforehand (i.e. all of the information on the recipes ready to put into {{recipe}}, and the information required for the infobox), then a bot could visit pages + subst the data. Setting that up needs all of the data beforehand (assembling the data is the tricky bit) - sticking the data into a page can probably be done. -Chieftain AlexUser Chieftain Alex sig.png 17:09, 29 October 2015 (UTC)
Example: provide a spreadsheet with all the "new recipes" that we don't already have wiki pages for, and I could probably knit it into wikicode. -Chieftain AlexUser Chieftain Alex sig.png 17:11, 29 October 2015 (UTC)
I have a similar task that runs for SMW at work. It pulls a big list of data from a database and goes through all the matching pages and uses the API function sfautoedit to change the content of the form that semantic mediawiki has. I haven't dug into this much, but it's something I could put together and share if anyone would be interested. --Batmanama (talk) 14:19, 4 November 2015 (UTC)
