Experiment with hard category redirect

Hi. Last September you edited Category:'Adan Governorate to make it a hard redirect (as well as being tagged as a soft redirect) to test something. I'm guessing you were testing whether such a page works as a hard redirect (it does) and whether it has any negative effects. Did you reach a conclusion? (i.e. should any change be made to WP:R#CATEGORY?) Should the hard redirect tag now be removed? DexDor (talk) 06:48, 13 January 2016 (UTC)

It was actually a test to see if it would remove Category:'Adan Governorate from Special:UnusedCategories, which it looks like it did. In my opinion, WP:R#CATEGORY should be updated to use a soft- and hard-redirect scheme. WP:CATRED says to use soft-redirects because hard-redirects don't work. I'm not sure when that page was written, but they do now. Hard-redirects are better for navigation, and the soft-redirect templates still provide categorization and allow the bots to work.

Help with pywikibot

Hi, I have seen you have a bot using pywikibot and I need your help. I'm a user of euwiki and I have installed pywikibot for my Windows 10 but I have problems. I have downloaded python 3.5.1. and installed it, downloaded the "core" file to C:\core and configured "user-config.py" in the same directory. When I start from cmd, I try to log in (C:\core> pwb.py login.py) but I get nothing... What can I do? I really appreciate your help. Thanks in advance.--An13sa (talk) 18:45, 20 January 2016 (UTC)

I'm not on a Windows platform, so you'll have to forgive me if this isn't helpful, but... pwb.py calls login.py, so you shouldn't need to specify the second .py bit. I think you also need to call python first. So, I think you are looking for C:\core> python pwb.py login to get results. Hopefully that does it for you. Good luck!
