:One small restriction on the range of contributors who can use it is that it does not work on ancient operating systems such as Windows Millennium Edition. I hope I'm the only regular contributor who is so technologically backward. Those of you who can try it - please do! A job that would help us all to use Wikia's new clever editing tools better is the tweaking of a few thousand info pages to bypass the deleterious effect of the CategorySelect tool, as described in the "simple example" mentioned above. — [[User:Robin Patterson|Robin Patterson]] [[User talk:Robin Patterson|(Talk)]] 15:21, 28 June 2009 (UTC)

::It also does not run on Linux and its variants or Macs that cannot run Windows XP or vista in a compatibility box. For these users, there is pywikipedia, though this is more technically challenging to use. It is significantly more flexible and powerful than AWB. To continue the metaphor, it is to AWB what a Sherman tank is to a 50MM machine gun. Goes more places but lights on fire more easily. I have instructions on its use ([[User:Phlox/pywikipedia setup|here]]. AMK used that a bit, but it is tough to understand unless you are a programmer, so I abandonned supporting that tool in favor of AWB. I think the more folks able to use assisted edit/bot tools the better for familypedia. -{{User:Phlox/Sig}} 17:01, 28 June 2009 (UTC)
