Hi. I've tried out your DisamAssist tool and find it very helpful. One suggestion, though -- if the link that is corrected is followed by a {{dn}} template (or equivalent), the tool should remove that template. --R'n'B (call me Russ) 17:20, 28 December 2013 (UTC)

Done. Thank you for your suggestion. Let me know if you have more comments. Qwertyytrewqqwerty (talk) 22:17, 28 December 2013 (UTC)
OK, here are a few more relatively non-urgent suggestions, in no particular order --
  1. The "Omit" button should be changed to "Skip", as that is likely to be clearer to most users.
  2. Add a button for "Disambiguation needed", which would not change the link but instead insert {{dn|date={{CURRENTMONTHNAME}} {{CURRENTYEAR}}}} after the link.
  3. Add a button for "Intentional link" (or "Link to disambiguation page") which would change the link from "Title" to "Title (disambiguation)", as per WP:INTDABLINK.
Ideally, (2) and (3) should also provide a more tailored edit summary.
Happy New Year! --R'n'B (call me Russ) 16:32, 30 December 2013 (UTC)
Done. Qwertyytrewqqwerty (talk) 15:49, 31 December 2013 (UTC)
Thanks!  :-) R'n'B (call me Russ) 18:10, 31 December 2013 (UTC)

FYI, the page Centre for Applied Nonviolent Action and Strategies contains a link to the disambig Green Left, but when I run DisamAssist on Green Left the page does not come up in the results. I've left it unchanged for you to be able to examine it. --R'n'B (call me Russ) 19:25, 31 December 2013 (UTC)

Yes, it's a bug. I think I might have fixed it. Qwertyytrewqqwerty (talk) 20:02, 31 December 2013 (UTC)

So, I went to Weta (disambiguation) and click on "Disambiguate links", and the script tried to disambiguate links to Weta, the primary topic article, rather than links to the disambiguation page. --R'n'B (call me Russ) 14:06, 17 February 2014 (UTC)

Yes, that's the intended behavior. Is that a problem? How do you think it should work? Should it show two options in those cases, one for the primary topic and another one for the disambiguation page itself? Qwertyytrewqqwerty (talk) 19:24, 17 February 2014 (UTC).
An option would be good. In this particular case, WETA redirects to the disambiguation page, and I was trying to fix links to WETA. Currently, the script won't let me do that. --R'n'B (call me Russ) 11:59, 18 February 2014 (UTC)
Something like this? Qwertyytrewqqwerty (talk) 22:34, 21 February 2014 (UTC).

Hello, again. In this diff, DisamAssist dropped the section anchor ("#Legal system") from the link. Preferably, such anchors should be retained. --R'n'B (call me Russ) 21:14, 22 May 2014 (UTC)

ArbCom elections are now open![edit]

It has the authority to enact binding solutions for disputes between editors, primarily related to serious behavioural issues that the community has been unable to resolve. This includes the ability to impose site bans, topic bans, editing restrictions, and other measures needed to maintain our editing environment. The arbitration policy describes the Committee's roles and responsibilities in greater detail. If you wish to participate, you are welcome to review the candidates' statements and submit your choices on the voting page.
