This is an active batch edit bot

This account is used by one or more bot owned and operated by DavidB4. At this time, the bot functions will be limited to error detection and correction and minor batch edits, such as category correction. In the future, it is hoped that this account will also be able to act as a "guardog" to help reduce vandalism.
If you have any suggestions regarding this bot, they will be eagerly welcomed. The current system is use does not allow much "growing room" so any other suggestions you have will be appreciated! If you have any other comments or questions, please also feel free to contact David B.

If a batch edit is not going go as intended and damage is being done, it would be greatly appreciated if a moderator would temporally block this account. However, please do not block the IP, since David B also sometimes connects from the same network address.

Current abilities

  • Find & Replace
  • Add templates to a set of pages
  • Add predefined text to a set of pages
  • Recategorize pages
  • Fix style and formatting
  • Scan for and correct typos (requires supervision)
  • Detect syntax errors such as unclosed parentheses, brackets, etc., unclosed tags, and other such issues (requires supervision)

There is currently no multi-user interface, but this may be an option. If you would like access, ask David B. If you have one or more task(s) you would like completed, also ask David B. Please post all such messages on David's talk page.

Exclusions

  • User pages are usually avoided
  • Talk pages are often skipped
  • In general, anything uncategorized will be skipped, since these are often unfinished or special purpose pages
  • In most cases, this account will not edit pages containing exclusion "tags." Please use these only if this bot is making erroneous edits to a page, or correction attempts are not wanted for some other reason. If you use these due to bot errors, please also notify David so he can attempt to find a permanent solution. These exceptions may be overlooked when parsing and editing pages for vandalism.

Exclusion tags

In most cases, this account will no act on pages containing the following comment tags. Make sure to use all which apply:
<!--nobot--> - Skip this page for '''all''' regular bot activity
More soon...hopefully
