Forums: Index > Watercooler > Genealogy now has a Bot- PhloxBot

Like a little Roomba, he will be happy to take on some pretty tedious chores. Got about 3000 pages with spaces in the name, or ( abt 1865??-??) rather than (c1865)? Robin will make the call on what tasks have highest priority. While I am active here, I won't mind running it on tasks as agreed upon. The main page User:PhloxBot has pointers to the near term tasks as well as a Projects page where other possibilities have listed. -Phlox- (formerly Mak) 05:33, 7 September 2007 (UTC)

Perhaps making UNKNOWN (?-?) to Unknown (?-?) and delinking them so they look like this: Unknown (?-?). -AMK152(TalkContributions 02:49, 8 September 2007 (UTC)
Well, maybe; I see that sort of "link" as a handy maintenance tool - - showing which pages need attention (because it often results from people simply not adding names they actually knew); can you show us where to find the ones you mean? Robin Patterson 15:29, 8 September 2007 (UTC)
(Phlox is too kind. My only "claims" to authority here are that I've made more non-article edits than any other human active here and that I started here before any of the currently active contributors did.) Thanks for setting the bot up and publicising it! Robin Patterson 15:29, 8 September 2007 (UTC)
