This page is for AWB'ers who can't find anything to put it to use on, or who would like to help others with this powerful tool.

Below are tasks for which a page-autoloader with various capabilities would be especially useful. That is, the people posting these tasks need the help of AWB'ers! If you have AWB, please lend a hand. Note that Linky may also be useful for completing the tasks on this list (see Wikipedia:OTS#Tabs_and_tabbing).

Category merge templates (2)[edit]

Would someone be willing to put the appropriate category merge template in all categories listed in this nomination?

For example:

Category:1 BC deaths should have {subst:cfm|1 BC|1st to 6th century BC deaths} but with double accolades instead of single (I've done this one already for testing purposes)
Category:2 BC deaths should have {subst:cfm|2 BC|1st to 6th century BC deaths} but with double accolades instead of single
Category:3 BC deaths should have {subst:cfm|3 BC|1st to 6th century BC deaths} but with double accolades instead of single
Category:4 BC deaths should have {subst:cfm|4 BC|1st to 6th century BC deaths} but with double accolades instead of single

and so on.

Could you ping me for any questions or after it's done? Thanks very much! Marcocapelle (talk) 12:23, 30 May 2015 (UTC)

@Marcocapelle: I did a few of these - could you please check to see if Category:4 BC deaths looks good before I continue? Thanks! GoingBatty (talk) 15:17, 30 May 2015 (UTC)

@GoingBatty: Small change needed: "1st to 5th century BC deaths" should become "1st to 6th century deaths". Otherwise fine, thank you very much! Marcocapelle (talk) 19:45, 30 May 2015 (UTC)

@Marcocapelle: Fixed the categories I already changed, Doing... the rest. GoingBatty (talk) 20:33, 30 May 2015 (UTC)
@Marcocapelle: Yes check.svg Done GoingBatty (talk) 20:50, 30 May 2015 (UTC)

Month pages[edit]

Can anyone please add {{R with possibilities}} to the month pages that redirect to the year page or a section of it? GeoffreyT2000 (talk) 16:08, 18 July 2015 (UTC)

@GeoffreyT2000: Could you please give an example? Thanks! GoingBatty (talk) 16:39, 18 July 2015 (UTC)
For example, April 1967 currently redirects to 1967. The code should say
#REDIRECT [[1967]] {{R with possibilities}}

Changing Unicode music symbols to {{music}}[edit]

Often I see ♭ used instead of , ♯ (or worse, #) used instead of , etc. Would it be possible to run an AWB scan for Unicode musical symbols and replace them as necessary? Eman235/talk 15:58, 31 July 2015 (UTC)
