Redirect fixing[edit]

Fixing double redirects and deleting broken redirects are part of the pywikipedia package that I've been using.

There is also a bot script for moving articles between categories. This is probably the easiest for moving from Project to Projects, etc. --CurtB 20:17, 14 February 2007 (PST)

Interesting bots[edit]

Perhaps this talk page would be a good place for discussing the interesting bots themselves. See Wikipedia:Wikipedia:Registered bots for more interesting options. Trouble seems to be that it's not clear how to get the source for these bots. Potentially that means creating bots from scratch? Or maybe nice bot owners will offer bot code if asked. Any other bot source resources? pywikipedia was available for download...

Bot list[edit]

  • pywikipedia: I have downloaded and used. It includes a variety of scripts for performing various functions, including: redirect fixes, moving categories, search-and-replace. --CurtB 20:17, 14 February 2007 (PST)
