This user account is a bot operated by Gijs.

This is a legitimate alternative account, used to make repetitive automated or semi-automated edits that would be extremely tedious to do manually.

Please post to this bot's talk page if you like to request it to perform a certain task.

Tasks

A small selection of tasks the bot performed in the past.

Find broken external links

To check whether all external links in one article are still valid:

weblinkchecker.py Page title

Fix double redirect

redirect.py double

Replace text

Replace a string by another string.

replace.py "Text to remove" "Text to add"

To remove an entire line, add \r\n:

replace.py "\r\nRemove this line" ""

Remove category

Remove the category tag from all pages in a specific category, basically deleting the entire category.

category.py remove

Rename category

Renaming a category requires editing all articles listed in that category. An excellent job for a bot!

category.py move -from:"Old category" -to:"New category"

Add file information template

To add an empty file information template to files that have no description:

add_text.py -except:(.+?) -text:"== Summary ==\n{{File information\n|description =\n|Source =\n|Date =\n|Author =\n}}" -summary:"Add empty file information template"

An additional option can be added to process only the latest x amount of files:

-newimages
