[edit] Bold Colon

  • '''::''' (except on Glossary). — It's dot com 22:50, 25 Sep 2005 (UTC)
    • Hand-fixed by me, with a clever use of the search thingy and CTRL+F. It was kinda fun. --DorianGray

[edit] User page → User space

[edit] Strongbadia → Strong Badia

But note that monument is an exception. —AbdiViklas 06:48, 17 January 2006 (UTC)
monument is not an exception. - Super Sam 12:33, 17 January 2006 (UTC)
Okay, I did a find and replace in the main namespace but didn't actually find any instances of "Strongbadia" that weren't either direct quotes (e.g. "Does Strongbadia have a space program?") or references to Strongbadia National Anthem, so that was all good. Since we don't like redirects, I also fixed the 28 links to "Strongbadia", many of which were outside the main namespace. No unlinked references to "Strongbadia" have been altered in places outside the main namespace. I figure nobody cares if people call it Strongbadia in their own talk or user pages, so long as they aren't linking to a redirect. — wikisig.gif Joey (talk·edits) 18:00, 19 January 2006 (UTC)

[edit] strongbad email.exe → strongbad_email.exe

Click here for a list of pages that need to be fixed (current at 07:05, 18 March 2006 (UTC)). Note: Do not fix this page. — It's dot com

The difference is the missing underscore. Even though [[strongbad email.exe]] and [[strongbad_email.exe]] both point to the same place, in the body of an article, the former get rendered with a space and the latter with the correct underscore. (This is more noticeable if one doesn't automatically underline links.) — It's dot com 21:07, 18 March 2006 (UTC)
I think I get the difference, but what I don't get is your list. Some of the pages on your list don't even point to strongbad_email.exe, or if they do they simply use "DVD" instead of writing out the name. Where did you get this list? Do I have to use your list? GrapeNuts has his own ways of obtaining lists like this. — wikisig.gif Joey (talk·edits) 21:43, 18 March 2006 (UTC)
I just did a search for the text. I'm sure some of them are in piped links or are simple text, but the literal string should be somewhere on each page. — It's dot com 22:06, 18 March 2006 (UTC)

[edit] Pistols For Pandas → Pistols for Pandas

Can you fix all instances of "Pistols For Pandas" to "Pistols for Pandas"? Thanks in advance. Thy Not Dennis (t/c) 22:42, 29 April 2009 (UTC)

[edit] Yeah, my sig is fixed

You can check that off the list, Joey. I'm not gonna tough STUFF archives, and I got everything else, so I'd say it 's done. --— User:ACupOfCoffee@ 15:14, 26 October 2005 (UTC)

See User talk:Tom/Greasemonkey Script for details. -- Tom 01:03, 6 November 2005 (UTC)

[edit] What User?

For users without user pages, GrapeNuts could just create a page with nothing but the user's name using {{PAGENAME}}. -AtionSong 21:43, 18 December 2005 (UTC)

Perhaps, but why bother? --Jay o'Lantern (Haunt) 21:53, 18 December 2005 (UTC)
Indeed. Additionally, the red link is an important piece of information, which comes in very useful when patrolling edits. — It's dot com 22:02, 18 December 2005 (UTC)

[edit] Image Tags

I don't know how this could avoid all the user-related images uploaded, but perhaps there is a way to get GrapeNuts to put the {{web-screenshot}} tag on images that need it. Perhaps by warning that users should put a different tag or piece of code with non-H*R.com related pictures, that would cause GrapeNuts to pass over them without adding the tag. -AtionSong 15:12, 23 December 2005 (UTC)

A bot is not smart enough to analyze an image's copyright status. It's too important to leave to a bot, and needs to be done by a human. -- Tom 17:13, 23 December 2005 (UTC)

[edit] One More thing...

Just another idea. SOrry I have so many, but I just want to put them out on the table. Could GN purge the introduction pages whenever they get edited? -AtionSong 01:20, 13 January 2006 (UTC)

No, this is a manual bot and it doesn't do things automatically. -- Tom 02:18, 13 January 2006 (UTC)

[edit] Glitch

Would GrapeNuts be able to fix the extra bar in These peoples try to fade me Visuals? Bluebry 21:32, 25 March 2006 (UTC)

I fixed the table formatting. And for future reference, that wouldn't be the kind of automated task GrapeNuts is capabe of. -- Tom 22:14, 25 March 2006 (UTC)
Good jorb, Tom! So, what would GrapeNuts be able to do? Like, um, find selected words and change them? Bluebry 22:16, 25 March 2006 (UTC)
Automated text replacement, yes. -- Tom 22:18, 25 March 2006 (UTC)

[edit] Abandoned Image Replacement

Would GrapeNuts be up for replacing the abandoned Image:homsar small.PNG with Image:Homsar-in-motion.gif wherever it's used? Thunderbird 06:15, 27 April 2006 (UTC)

Yep. I'll sic him on that right away. — wikisig.gif Joey (talk·edits) 18:10, 27 April 2006 (UTC)

[edit] Store

We need the UserBoxes to relocate due to the March 2006 Cleanup of the Store. --Dacheatbot · Communicate 22:31, 20 May 2006 (UTC)

[edit] 2 emails tasks

There are two pages that have been bugging me for quite some time, and have just recently been moved to the correct titles. Would you mind getting GrapeNuts to fix the redirects?

Museum SketchbookSketchbook (museum)

Holiday ToonsHolidays

Thanks, Thunderbird 00:35, 26 May 2006 (UTC)

Removal of redirects from Museum Sketchbook to Sketchbook (museum) completed. — Lapper (talk) Elcool (talk)(contribs) 16:17, 5 June 2006 (UTC)

[edit] Help!

My IRC toolkit on the fanstuff wiki doesn't work right, as you can see here. Can GrapeNuts help me? --Y2K (15px-Crystal_Clear_app_xchat.png15px-Crystal_Clear_app_kedit.png15px-Crystal_Clear_app_email.png) 08:57, 14 July 2006 (UTC)

I don't think that the template will work at all on the page.--H*Bad 09:07, 14 July 2006 (UTC)

[edit] Change sigs

I recently changed my user name from Bluebry muffin to just Bluebry and was wondering if GrapeNuts could change all {{User:Bluebry muffin/sig}} 's to {{User:Bluebry/sig}}. Thanks. Bluebry 22:05, 31 December 2006 (UTC)

[edit] TBird's Old Sig

Could GrapeNuts find and change all of Thunderbird's old signatures? Most of them are on talk pages for interviews, and they feature atrocious <font> tags. Thanks.· · T2|Things 18:39, 27 May 2007 (UTC)
