Please take a few minutes and complete this survey to help us better understand community and staff expectations for the Wikimedia Foundation Executive Director.

Cosmetic edits with AWB[edit]

Please note that using AutoWikiBrowser to make edits such as this is against the rules of use. AWB cannot be used for cosmetic edits such as removing white space and updating a template redirect to the actual template name unless accompanied by a non-cosmetic edit. Additionally, your edit rate is unusually high. Are you reviewing each edit before you hit "Save"? If you intend to make high volume, repetitive edits, WP:BOTASSIST may apply to you and you're encouraged to use a bot account for fully automated editing with AWB by filing a BRFA. ~ Rob13Talk 07:31, 30 August 2016 (UTC)

That's a fairly silly rule then, isn't it. I guess 5882 remaining links will remain confusing and misleading in the articles, as I'm not doing them manually. This task also isn't suitable for a BOT as 951 of the links where 2 or more players have the same name have the URL _smith1.html, not just smith.html, so I've been checking for those as I go. I'll just have to try to check those duplicate links in another way. The-Pope (talk) 11:11, 30 August 2016 (UTC)
