Old recordings[edit]

Has anyone undertaken to look at how up to date existing recordings are? I decided to have a look at Sheerness for which an audio version was recorded on 10 Feb 2008. There appears to be 266 revisions since then which cover virtually the entire article. Can we have a bot flag recordings when a threshold percentage of characters in the article change to ensure we are creating up to date recordings for new content?

@Donama: It would be great to have a bot that could do that seeing as how there are hundreds of recordings and checking each one would be a lot of work, do you have one? SparklingPessimist Scream at me! 04:14, 10 April 2017 (UTC)
No. I'm not diligent enough an editor to get involved in writing bots, but I'd love for someone to take up the challenge. There are bots to help with all kinds of problems like this in other wikiprojects. Donama (talk) 06:13, 10 April 2017 (UTC)
@Donama:That's probably true, but this project isn't very active at the moment and I do not know of a current WikiProject member who knows how to do that. I definitely couldn't, it took me forever to figure out how to just reconfigure the auto archiving since it was so outdated. This project was pretty much inactive up until a month ago when I discovered it.SparklingPessimist Scream at me! 06:19, 10 April 2017 (UTC)
