I am working on checking for incompatibilities that AutoWikiBrowser may have with Wiktionary tested and fixed. If there is an issue or you would like to otherwise comment about the edits, please feel free to do so below.

Or, talk about the weather :)

More information about AutoWikiBrowser may be found here

Hello, and welcome to Wiktionary. Thank you for your contributions. I hope you like the place and decide to stay. Here are a few good links for newcomers:

I hope you enjoy editing here and being a Wiktionarian! By the way, you can sign your name on Talk (discussion) and vote pages using four tildes, like this: ~~~~, which automatically produces your name and the current date. If you have any questions, see the help pages, add a question to the beer parlour or ask me on my Talk page. Again, welcome! --Connel MacKenzie T C 04:02, 10 April 2006 (UTC)

Thanks for the Welcome!

Good day. Some comments on your use of the AWB. It moved some categories to the bottom of a page, whilst they belonged at the end of the section, e.g. at far. Usually, we have them ordered in their appropriate language section here. Also, what kind of Unicode fixes are those? Beware that we sometimes use different apostrophes than the normal ASCII ones. Cheers. — Vildricianus 14:41, 10 April 2006 (UTC)

Vild, that isn't quite right, according to this (nor according to the previous discussions I recall on the topic.) A category applies to an entire page, not a section, so to make them easier to find/correct, they are supposed to be at the end (right before interwikis.)
The only reason we haven't pursued these corrections in the past, is because we did not have a tool available that would do it. I am delighted that I can scratch this off my "monobook.js" todo list, now that a better solution exists. --Connel MacKenzie T C 16:33, 10 April 2006 (UTC)
Can we have a definition of AWB please? SemperBlotto 07:34, 11 April 2006 (UTC)
Here you go
Shortly, it is a browser of wikis that allows you automatically replace words, fix formatting, etc... a bit quicker than by hand because it can load lists of articles (it helps with a lot of other editing, see the link above). It is not a bot in that users can see the diff changes they are doing and then they can select SAVE or make some other edits in the same way an edit box does.

Auto subst: {{temp|gstr}} please. But with extreme caution, as they were 'bot added and have some crazy things going on. The template changed several times during the bot loading and still is no where near acceptable for Wiktionary. --Connel MacKenzie T C 06:56, 11 April 2006 (UTC)

Done, that went extremely well. --That Guy, From That Show! 11:27, 11 April 2006 (UTC)

A quickie: (section edit only): Wiktionary Talk:Main Page/Redesign 2006#First character indexes. Thanks! --Connel MacKenzie T C 07:25, 11 April 2006 (UTC)

Done, working great --That Guy, From That Show! 08:32, 11 April 2006 (UTC)

Those will both work well what I want to test of AWB functions on Wiktionary. My internet connection is very unstable right at this time, so it'll be a little while :/ (done)

I like the concept, but not what it is doing. Looking at some of the Greek pages you have entered/converted, the format is different from the one usually used here, and the pronounciations are given using non-standard methods. Can you check the pages on formatting and pronunciation and then clean the pages up, please? — Paul G 10:50, 11 April 2006 (UTC)

. . . and the translations need to start with a # SemperBlotto 10:54, 11 April 2006 (UTC)

I reverted my changes to those specific articles except for the ones that were already reverted.
This is the type of feedback I need and it is appreciated very much.
--That Guy, From That Show! 11:22, 11 April 2006 (UTC)
Please don't revert all those strange Greek etc entries - they are much better now and just need tweaking. SemperBlotto 11:29, 11 April 2006 (UTC)
Those worked out well and I won't be reverting them.
--That Guy, From That Show! 11:39, 11 April 2006 (UTC)

Hi again. It looks like I've misunderstood what you were doing. You are cleaning up these entries rather than entering them. Sorry for the criticism. You're actually doing a really good job here. Thanks. — Paul G 14:27, 11 April 2006 (UTC)

That's ok , it didn't bother me at all. As a matter of fact, it was actually my own fault. I should have put up a huge notice with some detail about the testing that was doing. I'll work on that later before I do another trial run.

Again, please perform your unicode magic! Thanks in advance. --Connel MacKenzie T C 19:03, 11 April 2006 (UTC)

I came up with a way to do it without the links being full wikilinks. Let me know if that is what you wanted done.
That Guy, From That Show! 09:55, 13 April 2006 (UTC)
Also, User talk:Connel MacKenzie/todo4 please. --Connel MacKenzie T C 15:44, 12 April 2006 (UTC)
I can import them to take a look but they need to be in an [[articlefoobar]] format instead of a full url. One of the main reasons is if AWB grabbed urls like that off of pages, it would also import urls that are in the navigation box, toolbox, as well as the tab urls at the top of every page.
