Of course, this may not be possible with Armor subpages, but I'm fairly certain it can be done. If it can't say otherwise and delete the page.Entrea SumataeEntrea [Talk] 23:54, 12 June 2008 (UTC)

If it can't be done with a bot, I'll do it by hand :P ¬ Wizårdbõÿ777(talk) 23:58, 12 June 2008 (UTC)
I bet a bot can do it, although it may be more difficult because there isn't a list of them in Non-orphaned pages like there were for NPC's.Entrea SumataeEntrea [Talk] 00:01, 13 June 2008 (UTC)
AWB can make a list from any special page, like Special:Uncategorizedpages. A filter can then be applied to the list to get only pages that end with */Female, */Quests, etc. The only problem is that it will only list the first 1000 pages, and we'd have to do it again tomorrow to get the rest. Since this is an extension of an already completed task, I'd be up for starting it tonight already. —Dr Ishmael Diablo the chicken.gif 00:44, 13 June 2008 (UTC)
Well, that's good. Unfortunately, I can't do it as I have neither a bot account nor experience with running one (Although AWB isn't much of a bot, if I read it right), but hopefully someone else can do it soon.Entrea SumataeEntrea [Talk] 00:47, 13 June 2008 (UTC)
I can run PhoenixBot if you would like :o) --Shadowphoenix 00:49, 13 June 2008 (UTC)
(edit conflict) If you have a bot-flagged account, AWB can run fully automated. And I just noticed on Special:Uncategorizedpages that there are a number that should've been categorized the first time but weren't (Collector pages mostly), so we could pick those up too on this run. SP, it would probably be good if we split the task this time - you could do /Female and I could do /Male, or something like that, since there's so many of them. —Dr Ishmael Diablo the chicken.gif 00:52, 13 June 2008 (UTC)
Alrighty, I will turn on PhoenixBot and do /Female :) --Shadowphoenix 00:53, 13 June 2008 (UTC)
New record for least time between task write-up and task beginning?Entrea SumataeEntrea [Talk] 00:55, 13 June 2008 (UTC)
I don't see any reason why we can't go ahead, no. It's just expanding on what's already been done. I'll get started on the /Male side then. —Dr Ishmael Diablo the chicken.gif 00:57, 13 June 2008 (UTC)
Wow, SP's bot is a lot faster than yours. And doesn't mark as minor edits. Both of which may be bad things.Entrea SumataeEntrea [Talk] 01:04, 13 June 2008 (UTC)
I already posted on her talk page asking for her to throttle it. —Dr Ishmael Diablo the chicken.gif 01:05, 13 June 2008 (UTC)


What kind of error is this?Entrea SumataeEntrea [Talk] 02:37, 13 June 2008 (UTC)

Apparently one that borks AWB. ¬ Wizårdbõÿ777(talk) 02:47, 13 June 2008 (UTC)
Here ¬ Wizårdbõÿ777(talk) 02:48, 13 June 2008 (UTC)
Though it might be worth noting - the link provided in the bug report for the page being processed when the error was encountered: - the URL says it's for Abomination/Types, but the link takes me to Sturdy Boots/Female... ¬ Wizårdbõÿ777(talk) 02:50, 13 June 2008 (UTC)
The message that goes to Wikipedia is Automated, I just copy and paste it on the talk page. The error stops AWB from working, it halted everything I was doing so I had to shut PhoenixBot down for the night. Hopefully all will be ok soon :o) --Shadowphoenix 02:52, 13 June 2008 (UTC)
Well, for some reason it has the wrong oldid number :( Try using something other than AWB, maybe? ¬ Wizårdbõÿ777(talk) 03:08, 13 June 2008 (UTC)
Did you try restarting? —JediRogue 03:10, 13 June 2008 (UTC)
Yep, it would not allow me to edit anything... It has been a bit I could try again... --Shadowphoenix 03:11, 13 June 2008 (UTC)
Wait it broke AWB entirely? I meant restarting your computer. —JediRogue 03:12, 13 June 2008 (UTC)
Sturdy Boots/Female and /Male were the last armor pages currently in the list. It sounds like AWB somehow kept that oldid in memory when you regenerated the list for /Types, and when it tried tying that oldid to Abomination/Types is when it errored. I'm going to try doing /Types myself, after completely restarting AWB. —Dr Ishmael Diablo the chicken.gif 03:21, 13 June 2008 (UTC)
It's working for me now. —Dr Ishmael Diablo the chicken.gif 03:24, 13 June 2008 (UTC)


I was using AWB's category-adding feature to do this... I forgot about the part where it has to be in a <noinclude>. I've updated AWB to append the appropriate text, so I will finish out /Types like that, then I'll go back and fix the /Types pages that I'd already done and fix all the /Male pages. —Dr Ishmael Diablo the chicken.gif 03:41, 13 June 2008 (UTC)

Ouch.Entrea SumataeEntrea [Talk] 03:48, 13 June 2008 (UTC)
Well, hopefully the special page will refresh by tomorrow so we can get this thing done. Many pages were full of armor, so maybe it will even go below 1000.Entrea SumataeEntrea [Talk] 04:04, 13 June 2008 (UTC)
They usually refresh around 2 PM my time (Central), so I'll be watching. —Dr Ishmael Diablo the chicken.gif 04:06, 13 June 2008 (UTC)
Well, I suppose if 1000 got all the way to St-, the number of armor pages that were categorized will probably make up for all the rarer letters that remain. So I suppose we probably will get to see the and of the list tomorrow afternoon.Entrea SumataeEntrea [Talk] 04:09, 13 June 2008 (UTC)
Uncategorizedimages recached at 3:12 EST today, so that's probably about when uncategorizedpages will, too (And yes, I remembered the exact time :P). ¬ Wizårdbõÿ777(talk) 04:11, 13 June 2008 (UTC)
Also, "the and of the list" sounds weird, entrea ^_^ ¬ Wizårdbõÿ777(talk) 04:12, 13 June 2008 (UTC)
Wikia probably starts a refresh script across their whole wikifarm at noon Pacific, is what it seems like. It takes ~10-15 minutes to get to GuildWiki. —Dr Ishmael Diablo the chicken.gif 04:14, 13 June 2008 (UTC)

Special pages refreshed, only 440 on Special:Uncategorizedpages, so we can get everything today. I'm going to start running the rest of the /Male pages and continue from there. —Dr Ishmael Diablo the chicken.gif 21:25, 13 June 2008 (UTC)

/grumble It's kinda annoying when you make non-bot-ish edits with your bot account, SP. Otherwise I would've seen that you'd already completed this. —Dr Ishmael Diablo the chicken.gif 21:29, 13 June 2008 (UTC)
lol, I got bored and decided to finish it today; then I was to lazy to log back in lol :P --Shadowphoenix 21:34, 13 June 2008 (UTC)
Hey, finishing it is fine, I don't mind at all - what I mind is you letting me make a fool of myself by saying that I'm about to do something that's already been done. :P —Dr Ishmael Diablo the chicken.gif 21:36, 13 June 2008 (UTC)
