I've completed the deletion of old GEMH images successfully (Task #3 details, deletion log). If needed, AzBot can now perform "mass deletions" provided that pages/files are no longer linked to. (AzBot performs the checks via Special:WhatLinksHere before deletion.)

I seek the approval for 2 more tasks for AzBot:

  • Task #4: Delete 101 obsolete Exchange pages and images
We've removed a small selection of items from the Grand Exchange to improve offer matching. For example, all but the (8) and (1) charged variants of the games necklace have been removed. The removed items can still be traded; they just no longer show up on the Grand Exchange.
Update:Faruq's Tools for Games

Task #4 is similar to Task #3, while Task #2 requires AWB regex matching.   az talk   12:40, 18 July 2009 (UTC)


Support - the community has already trusted you enough to sysop your bot so I see no reason why we can't add a few tasks. This would be really helpful. Andrew talk 17:00, 18 July 2009 (UTC)

Support and Comment - I think the community knows you well enough to perform your duties properly without making a mess of things. I support your proposal but I think it would just be easier on you if you performed whatever ideas you had with the bot and if the community wonders whats going on or has issues you can address them as they arise. Perhaps a page saying AzBot will be doing this during the week of SO-and-SO so that if people are interested in what you are doing they can always check.

Comment - No editor should be above having to follow the bot policy, which I interpret as stating that the bot's specific functionality must be well-defined ahead of time and approved by the community. In this case we are talking about a bot with sysop rights so I would think this would be even more important. --Quarenon  Talk 19:09, 18 July 2009 (UTC)

Support - Cleanup is great and AzBot has already proven itself. - TehKittyCatTalk Wikian-Book 18:32, 18 July 2009 (UTC)

Support - These sorts of repetitive tasks just begs for a bot to do the work. --Quarenon  Talk 19:09, 18 July 2009 (UTC)

Support - Per above. I trust that the programming will be spot on and useful. Zaros symbol.pngChaos Monk Talk SignCoins 250.png 23:29, 19 July 2009 (UTC)

Support - Per above. Could you also add the 25 afro Exchange pages to the to-be-deleted list, since they also have been removed from the Grand Exchange (Source). Quest.png Gaz Lloyd 7:^]Events!99s 20:19, 22 July 2009 (UTC)

Support - We gave you and your bot extra tools, so I think we can trust you enough to have some additional tasks to help the wiki. :) Santa hat.png Powers38 おはようヾ(´・ω・`) 02:41, 26 July 2009 (UTC)

Request for closure - It has been 11 days and with full support this far. We trusted Az enough to grant Sysop, and then bot and sysop for Az's bot, so I think this is overwhelming support. - TehKittyCatTalk Wikian-Book 14:26, 29 July 2009 (UTC)
