The admin PanSola has rejected the ban request for the following reason: unless you have released the password and someone else has changed it, or if you suddenly decide to turn into a GuildWars Wikia hater, there is no reason to ban the bot. 08:25, 16 June 2006 (CDT)

If you wish to discuss this issue furthur, please use the talk page.


Stabbot is a bot that I, Stabber, ran from time to time to make a batch of trivial edits to a number of pages. IT HAS NOW BEEN PERMANENTLY RETIRED..

The bot scripts were written using the Python Wikipedia Robot Framework. If you want to use pywikipediabot yourself, you will have to make a GuildWars Wikia "family". Take the following file and stick it in your families directory.

Now create a file called user-config.py, and add in it:

family='GuildWars Wikia'
mylang='en'
usernames['GuildWars Wikia']['en'] = 'Stabbot'

(replacing "Stabbot" with your wiki user name). After that, run:

% python2.4 login.py

And input your password. If it worked, you should be able to run

% python2.4 test.py

successfully.

You may want to take a good look at the replace.py script. 90% of the time it will be what you need.

If you want some skeletal code that does some fixed textual operation on a collection of pages, you may want:

Replace the "STUB" bits with code. The function cleanup takes the text of the old page as input and returns the new text.
