Yet another Bot, operated by Florian K. This is just intended to be a development-bot for improvements on User:Morn. Please contact Florian if there's something wrong with this Bot.

This bot - just like Morn - is based on Python Wikipedia Robot Framework.

Please feel free to add more To-Do's at the end. At the moment there are no plans to commit the changes to a common reporistory since those changes are especially for Memory Alpha.

Developement Edit

improvement to snapshot-20050323 (interwiki-links)
Add "interwikiR = re.compile(r'\[\[:?([a-z\-]+):([^\]]*)\]\]')" to wikipedia.py (def getLanguageLinks) and replace the old line to operate [[:de:ARTICLE]] like [[de:ARTICLE]] interwiki-links. -- Florian - Talk 11:59, 30 Mar 2005 (EST)
improvement to snapshot-20050323 (replacing / deleting interwiki-links)
If you have an interwiki-link in a wiki-table the bot will desctruct your table. In order to have a valid table after deleting the link, you must add a nextline to the text. I altered wikipedia.py within "def removeLanguageLinks" as follows:
           if code in site.family.langs:
               # We found a valid interwiki link. Remove it.
               text = text[:match.start()] + text[match.end():]
               text = text + '\r\n'
               # continue the search on the remaining text
               index = match.start()
           else:
configuration
You should configure (config.py) interwiki_text_separator = ''. Same for category_text_separator. -- Florian - Talk 04:07, 31 Mar 2005 (EST)
new feature to snapshot-20050323 (category.py)
Implemented a sortorder for episodes, not final. Features german MA-problems. All (in)definite articles wille be set to the end and umlauts and accents will be replaced with normal vocals to maintain the natural sortorder. You can use parameter "-episode" to use this feature, e.g. "category.py add -episode". Up-to-date code can be found here. TODO: english articles; better distinction between "-person" and -"episode"; performance. -- Florian - talk 10:59, 10 Apr 2005 (EDT)

To-Do Edit

  • Request: check all image pages for indented use of the copyright template (":{{image paramount}}") and change to an unindented use with a "newline" in front of it. Eventually also check for remaining use of the obsoleted "msg:" prefix and remove that (See Template talk:Image paramount). Thanks. -- Cid Highwind 15:09, 26 Dec 2005 (UTC) I finally had the time to get my own bot working and made that its first task. Thanks anyway... ;) -- Cid Highwind 18:59, 27 Dec 2005 (UTC)
