Wowpedia:Bot requests

This article is a list of bot requests. You can request massive repetitive changes on specific pages and a bot user might take care of it at some point.

Please note, for best results, requests must have a clear way to determine a set of pages on which the operation should be performed, and should not require review of each change after it is performed. Otherwise, it is a task best left to manual edits.


Please change all instances in the main namespace:

  • "==Notes & trivia==" to "==Notes and trivia=="
  • (and "== Notes & trivia ==" to "== Notes and trivia ==", if that makes a difference)

Could you please change:

  • [[Temple of the moon|]] to [[Temple of Elune (buildings)|]] and [[temple of the moon]] to [[Temple of Elune (buildings)|temple of Elune]]

Thanks. --Ryon21 (talk) 23:19, 18 March 2019 (UTC) Move all instances of:

  • "Category:Doomguards" to "Category:Doomguard"
  • "Category:Felguards" to "Category:Felguard"
  • "Category:Wrathguards" to "Category:Wrathguard"
--Mordecay (talk) 15:50, 30 November 2018 (UTC)

I messed up when setting up the excel file. Could you please, for any page containing {{removed}}, {{unobtainable}} or any of their variants, move the following categories if present:

Thanks! Xporc (talk) 16:37, 1 November 2018 (UTC)

  • For all articles in Category:Warcraft TCG cards and the subcategories, replace {{stub}} with {{Stub/TCG}}. — Surafbrov T / C / P 13:59, 23 October 2018 (UTC)
  • Change all instances of [[Category:Island expedition rewards]] to [[Category:Island Expedition rewards]]. --Mordecay (talk) 09:32, 13 October 2018 (UTC)
  • For all quests in Category:The Barrens quests, please change | category = The Barrens to | category = Barrens.
For all quests in Category:The Hinterlands quests, please change | category = The Hinterlands to | category = Hinterlands. - Thanks. Xporc (talk) 19:34, 23 October 2018 (UTC)
  • For all the images in Category:Race icons and Category:Unique character icons, add {{Raceicon resize}} to the top of the page. (I already have the couple icons that don't need this treatment, so I'll remove the template once the bot has done this request.) This template will help the Icon Team find the ones that will need the treatment; when it is done this template and related category can be deleted. — Surafbrov T / C / P 01:47, 24 October 2018 (UTC)

Could you please, in all the pages using the manga-section, change it to {{comic-section}}. Since {{comic}} now covers both comics and manga, there's no need to keep a difference in sections. Xporc (talk) 12:00, 28 September 2018 (UTC)

  • - Move all instances of [[wicker golem]], [[wicker golem|blabla]] to [[wicker construct]] and [[wicker construct|blabla]]
- And Category:Wicker golems to Category:Wicker constructs - MyMindWontQuiet 13:20, 21 September 2018 (UTC)
  • Remove all files from Category:User:Surafbrov/BfAIcons and delete the category if it has not been already. Thanks! — Surafbrov T / C / P 06:51, 19 September 2018 (UTC)

Change all instances of [[Category:Zone screenshots]] in Category:Zone screenshots to == Licensing == {{Licensing|Zone}} . Could you please change:

  • [[Battle for Azeroth (event)|]] to [[Blood War]]

Thanks. --Ryon21 (talk) 14:56, 8 September 2018 (UTC)

For every page in Intersection:Orc characters::The Mag'har, could you please move all instances of [[Category:Orc characters]] to [[Category:Mag'har orc characters]]? There two exceptions, Kor'kron Overseer (Siege of Orgrimmar) and Kor'kron Provisioner, which can be both and that will have to be reverted once the bot is done working. Xporc (talk) 15:23, 25 August 2018 (UTC)

  • Move all instances of [[Category:Warcraft concept art]] to [[Category:Concept art]] and [[:Category:Warcraft concept art]] to [[:Category:Concept art]]
Move [[Category:Warcraft concept art]] to [[Category:Concept art]] -- MyMindWontQuiet 13:37, 15 August 2018 (UTC)

In Category:Artifact power items:

change "|quality=X" to "|quality=Poor" in itemtips.
To their Patch changes sections add *{{Patch 8.0.1|note=Quality changed and unusable.}} (modify the note wording, if needed).
  • Maybe:
They are no longer usable, so move the "|use=TEXT" text to a Notes section. "Artifact Power" is also not in the game anymore but I guess it can be kept for historical purposes as well (removing it would also took out the category, so definitely keep the artifact line in itemtips).:--Mordecay (talk) 13:17, 19 July 2018 (UTC)
I kept the original use in the tooltip, didn't see a complete need to move it to the patch notes. Snake.gifSssssssssssssssssssssssss Coobra sig3.gifFor Pony! (Sssss/Slithered) 18:09, 29 July 2018 (UTC)
Actually, hold off on doing uncommon-quality AP items. It seems that those rewarded through 7.0 campaign missions still don't have a value, and that's no small number. -- Alayea (talk / contrib) 20:30, 16 July 2018 (UTC)
I was waiting until the pre-patch anyway. --PcjWowpedia wiki manager (TDrop me a line!C207,729 contributions and counting) 22:02, 16 July 2018 (UTC)
All done! Ignore the uncommon-quality AP items, I did all the applicable ones manually since it was a mess. Epic and rare-quality AP items can be run through, however.! :) -- Alayea (talk / contrib) 05:54, 17 July 2018 (UTC)
  • Add {{rfg|patch=8.0.1}} to the top of every artifact trait page. Include a check for if the template already exists on that page, as a few already have it. -- DarkTZeratul (talk) 07:32, 18 July 2018 (UTC)
  • Change {{WorldEvent/Burning of Teldrassil}} to {{WorldEvent/War of the Thorns}} everywhere.
  • In Quests of Category:Warchief's Agenda quests change {{WorldEvent/War of the Thorns}} to {{WorldEvent/War of the Thorns|doc=}} (reason: the world event template adds Category:War of the Thorns which is not necessary because the Category:Warchief's Agenda quests, created by questboxes, is already in the War of the Thorns category).
Thx. --Mordecay (talk) 02:04, 10 July 2018 (UTC)

Could you, for all pages inside Category:Dark Iron dwarf characters, update the following:

  • Add [[Category:Dark Iron clan characters]] to them after the line [[Category:Dark Iron dwarf characters]] itself.

  • Replace all instances of [[Siege of Orgrimmar]] to [[Siege of Orgrimmar (instance)|Siege of Orgrimmar]] There should be no problems with this, since all links pointing to the lore of the battle rather than the instance should already point to [[Siege of Orgrimmar (battle)]]
