Unassigned requestsEdit

Replacing a templateEdit

Replacing {{CWMG-copyright}} by {{PD-India-CWMG}} on all pages where it is used: Special:WhatLinksHere/Template:CWMG-copyright. Thanks, Yann (talk) 23:26, 2 January 2009 (UTC)

  Done for main NS. Do you want broader? -- billinghurst (talk) 13:05, 15 March 2009 (UTC)

Replacing a templateEdit

Prior to the introduction of the |translator field in {{header}}, a user put the translator as the "author=" field in each subpage of Ante-Nicene Fathers, even though they were written by dozens of authors like Author:Tertullian and others. So if you could bump all author=Philip Schaff et al to translator=, then I can begin properly attributing each work. Sherurcij Collaboration of the Week: Author:Romain Rolland. 16:51, 21 March 2009 (UTC)

Started, though with 7400+ pages, it is going to take a little while. Continuing conversation at User_talk:Sherurcij -- billinghurst (talk) 22:52, 21 March 2009 (UTC)
Finishing Vol. 4. later today. BTW I came across a number of duplicate pages that I subsequently removed. -- billinghurst (talk) 03:25, 1 April 2009 (UTC)
  Done . There was a bit of fixing at the same time. -- billinghurst (talk) 06:04, 25 April 2009 (UTC)

Section anchorsEdit

Could a bot run over Index:Alabama State Constitution of 1901.djvu and replace "dd. " at the beginning of the line with "{{section|Section dd}}dd.". John Vandenberg (chat) 08:24, 30 May 2009 (UTC)

  Done -- billinghurst (talk) 11:55, 30 May 2009 (UTC)

Blank pagesEdit

I'm thinking this should go on Persistent Tasks, but let me know. We should automatically upgrade all pages marked with {{Blank page}} (and in Category:Proofread) as "Validated" - it saves manhours of clicking to "validate" the veracity of a blank page - something I think we can trust our proofreaders to do themselves. Sherurcij Collaboration of the Week: Author:Carl Jung. 06:58, 20 April 2009 (UTC)

blank pages in cat:Proofread need Page without text state rather than Validated state. Phe (talk) 12:13, 15 September 2009 (UTC)
Currently undertaking a replacement of {{blank page}} and {{PageQuality}} with <pagequality level="0" user="$1" />. Consider it   Done -- billinghurst (talk) 01:43, 25 September 2009 (UTC)

Excessive author linksEdit

The article Abraham Lincoln Brigade has excessive author links. They should all be removed. If there are to be any, they should only exist for where author links exist, rather than presume that all people will have links. Not a practice that I would want to see continue and could be extremely cumbersome. -- billinghurst (talk) 12:21, 23 May 2009 (UTC)

  Done by Bookofjude.

Template refs for removalEdit

  Done both billinghurst (talk) 11:20, 16 July 2009 (UTC)
