Dvortybot is an account owned and operated jointly by Dvortygirl and Connel MacKenzie to allow bulk linking of audio.

Operational status

  • Alive and kicking. Testing is proceeding nicely, with current methods hitting at about a 98% auto-linking rate. But that is mainly due to Dvorty skipping all heteronyms during these early tests.

Current bugs

  1. Unicode support is broken at this time, e.g. façade. 17:12, 13 May 2007 (UTC)
  2. Apostrophes are broken at this time, e.g. day's, girl's. 17:12, 13 May 2007 (UTC)
  3. Temporary: Items skipped (from linking Wiktionary entries) because they already have an {{audio}} link are not reported as skipped. 17:14, 13 May 2007 (UTC)

Can I help?

Oh please, yes. Between the numerous projects alive, neither Dvorty nor Connel has enough time to minutely review each edit. Sampling so far, has been spectacular, but then again, who knows what you might find as the searching methods get more complicated.

The 2% of errors that do not auto-link, but do upload to, are tagged onto the very end of this page. (Yes, please set the subpage on your watchlist.) For entries that could not be auto-linked, for one reason or another, human intervention is required. This two percent represents those entries that need luvin'.

Please, no matter who you are, strike through entries as you manually link them.

Note some the various types of errors:

  1. {{audio}} tag already present in entry
  2. Multiple etymology sections
  3. Multiple pronunciation sections
  4. Multiple {{rfap}}s
  5. Unicode title (this should be fixed shortly)

Neskaya and other's uploads linking nicely now. Hopefully it will only post ones that need manual linking this time, instead of the whole silly list. (Many homophones on this last it might come out as only 260 autolinked.) --Connel MacKenzie 06:48, 9 September 2007 (UTC)
