Links to dead tools[edit]

Toolserver has been shutdown for a month, but there is still Wikistalk listed, which used to run on Toolserver and is now dead, leading only to "404 not found." Is there a replacement using the new system? Could someone familiar with the tools put a note by the ones which have ceased operating, perhaps noting if someone is working on one which will sork with the new "improved" tool system? That would avoid some unnecessary frustration. Thanks Edison (talk) 12:45, 2 August 2014 (UTC)

Please fix it or up date it Imaginemylove (talk) 20:53, 10 May 2017 (UTC)

BibTeX2Wiki converter[edit]

This one was very useful. Is there an alternative? Does someone have the code or can contact the creator of it? [1] --Ondertitel (talk) 11:58, 31 January 2015 (UTC)

Disregard editor?[edit]

I see plenty of tools for isolating the edits of a particular user, but is there anything that can do the inverse, i.e. display an article but disregard a particular editor's contributions? --Walnuts go kapow (talk) 17:57, 6 August 2015 (UTC)

Tool Request[edit]

I know that this might not be the right place for this but I would be glad if someone directs me to the right page. Anyways, here is the description of a tool that I think would be useful if done.

  • 1) User edits a page
  • 2) User clicks a button while he/she is editing the page
  • 3) A script is invoked which parses the infobox and reads each infobox line into a variable, then it rewrites the infobox content into sententces just under the infobox.

This would be a great tool for those who want to create stub articles in one language which are based on the content of another. Thanks for consideration. --Alperen (talk) 17:03, 7 August 2015 (UTC)

That's a pretty clever idea. Maybe try posting on the village pump? Brightgalrs (/braɪtˈɡæl.ərˌɛs/)[1] 22:12, 4 February 2016 (UTC)

Tool down[edit]

The ref refill tool is down since a day or two back. Can someone fix this or direct me to the user in charge of the tool. Thanks. Ping me.--BabbaQ (talk) 17:55, 29 May 2016 (UTC)
