Snidester, what sort of project? Primefac (talk) 20:43, 7 July 2018 (UTC)
I just saw this... just look at my recent contribs on the mainspace. If AWB is not what I'm looking for let me know. Snidester (talk) 22:16, 11 July 2018 (UTC)
Snidester, there is a lot of tidying up necessary of your navboxes. AWB is definitely the tool to use but your editing should be more clean before that's the right tool for you. I also note that you place links to navboxes like so {{Template:Craters on the Moon: C-F}} which should not contain "template:" as that is what the curly brackets are there for. Schwede66 01:26, 12 July 2018 (UTC)
Schwede66, Yeah I noticed that before you told me that. I'll try to make those templates cleaner. Tomorrow how ever I plan on returning to my previous work of Anti-vandalism and I'll probably return to the Moon craters thing on Friday. If you're planning to hold off my request until my navboxes are neater, then that is alright with me. I see that the Templates have been cleaned (and one of them was translated). In addition, the word "template:" has been removed from almost all pages using WP:WPCleaner (and I removed the rest). Snidester (talk) 04:46, 12 July 2018 (UTC)


Edits: I have 200 edits on Wikisaurus and 300 edits on Викизавр (old account), but my main Wikipedia is Russian - over 20 000 edits totally and access to AWB there.
Reason: semi-automatically replace {{ref}} by {{sfn}} + {{h}}, see example and code, mainly in the articles on paintings. Wikisaurus (talk) 14:15, 12 July 2018 (UTC)

Not done. The language wikis have different rules regarding content and formatting, and one of the AWB rules (which goes along with the MOS rules) is that reference style changes should not just be made arbitrarily, and your proposal to change <ref> tags into {{sfn}} does exactly that. Primefac (talk) 02:27, 14 July 2018 (UTC)
Primefac, it is not about changing reference style (and I know reference style of enwiki, your remark was not nice at all), it is about adding correct links from references to sources, which can be clicked, compare [1] and [2]. If you care about replacing "Surname, year, p. page" by "Surname (year), p. page", I can easily modify regexp to use {{harvnb}} when necessary, so no reference style is changed.

I am requesting autowikibrowser rights mostly to assist with the WP:WikiProject Portals per an alert from The Transhumanist on my talk page that this tool would be useful in that project. Perhaps the best indication of how I will behave with this tool in-hand is my work on date formats. I try to respect local consensus and defer to the decisions made by the article's major contributors even when I disagree with them. --- Coffeeandcrumbs 05:14, 18 July 2018 (UTC)
