Performed tasks

Just for Sidekicks

Change all "Just For Sidekicks" mentions to "Just for Sidekicks". Xeoxer (talk) 19:23, January 26, 2013 (UTC)

Done. ~Bobogoobo (talk) Lyra_speaks_S2E25.png 22:32, January 26, 2013 (UTC)

Indexing galleries

Index Lyra's season 2 gallery. Xeoxer (talk) 22:07, January 26, 2013 (UTC)

Creating an index isn't a bot task, but I can create the subpage and move the images once someone has done it. ~Bobogoobo (talk) Lyra_speaks_S2E25.png 22:32, January 26, 2013 (UTC)
Ozuzanna scolded me for manually splitting Derpy's season 2 gallery to index, and asked me to leave gallery splitting for bots. Xeoxer (talk) 09:21, January 27, 2013 (UTC)
Well I'm not really fussed anymore, it's just if people still want achievements to be gained fairly - splitting a gallery might yield a lot of picture badge edits, I don't know if people still care about the badges but that's why I asked you to request a bot to do it. B0lGGoQ.gifOz   09:42, January 27, 2013 (UTC)
Yeah, splitting the gallery is a bot task and I do hate when people move things manually (though really it wouldn't be an issue if we didn't have achievements). What I'm saying is the index itself needs to be done manually and I can move the images when that's in place. ~Bobogoobo (talk) Lyra_speaks_S2E25.png 10:30, January 27, 2013 (UTC)
I didn't care about badges at all while doing this, I just thought it was necessary for the wiki. OK, now I understand. Xeoxer (talk) 11:40, January 27, 2013 (UTC)

Index for Lyra's season 2 gallery created, now please move the gallery. Xeoxer (talk) 12:45, February 2, 2013 (UTC)

Done, thanks for helping. -- Ozuzanna (Talk) 12:53, February 2, 2013 (UTC)

Colon in series name

Insert a colon into any links linking to "My Little Pony Friendship is Magic (comics)" or the gallery subpage in-between Pony and Friendship. Also, change the category on all images from Category:MLPFiM comics images to Category:MLP:FiM comics images.-- This is Jonny Manz, signing off! 07:27, February 10, 2013 (UTC)

Done (called it just "Category:Comics images" instead). ~Bobogoobo (talk) Lyra_speaks_S2E25.png 10:21, February 10, 2013 (UTC)

Protected pages

We can remove move protection from pages now that only admins will be able to move them. ~Bobogoobo (talk) Lyra_speaks_S2E25.png 02:21, May 13, 2013 (UTC)

Done, though it only now hit me that regular contributors can't move pages anymore. –Throwy 17:12, May 13, 2013 (UTC)
Mhm...wonderful feeling to be free of the worry, isn't it? ~Bobogoobo (talk) Lyra_speaks_S2E25.png 03:30, May 14, 2013 (UTC)

Equestria Girls

Re-point all links to Equestria Girls to Equestria Girls (commercial) or Equestria Girls (spinoff), whichever they're talking about. I need to go to bed at the moment. ~Bobogoobo (talk) Lyra_speaks_S2E25.png 11:59, February 14, 2013 (UTC)


Manehatten and Appleloosa

Update the spelling of "Manehatten" to be "Manehattan", per the updated version of the Equestria map.-- This is Jonny Manz, signing off! 22:50, May 23, 2013 (UTC)

Done (mainspace only), also added in forms of Appleloosa and Las Pegasus to make sure. Only snag was the reference to the Diamond Dogs from the comics, which have the "Appaloosa Mountains", which I'm guessing are separate and/or their own invention. Thanks for pointing that out. ~Bobogoobo (talk) Lyra_speaks_S2E25.png 03:23, May 24, 2013 (UTC)

Apple Bloom

Hello, could you please automatically replace all occurences of "Applebloom" by "Apple Bloom" in the articles, galleries, links...? As discussed here. Thanks, 0drake0 (talk) 11:43, June 5, 2013 (UTC)

Okay. I will try and do that later today.  FANMADE_Animated_Derpy_Hooves_desktop_ponies_sprite.gif Sig1.png Sig2.png  11:56, June 5, 2013 (UTC)
I actually just ran that, hah. On Imperfect's wall I was saying that you can submit other things in the future. 13:22, June 5, 2013 (UTC)
Excuse me, but did I do a mistake ? Thanks,  Drakep6yPvD4.png  13:45, June 5, 2013 (UTC)


Fun fact: even the article about them is a mix of capitalized and uncapitalized uses of the word. when searching other related terms, on one hand we have "unicorns", on the other we have "Crystal Ponies"; so, is it "alicorn" or "Alicorn" ? Thanks –  Drakep6yPvD4.png  00:53, June 29, 2013 (UTC)

Forum:Capitalization of "Alicorn". Maybe there are more recent sources? ~Bobogoobo (talk) Lyra_speaks_S2E25.png 02:03, June 29, 2013 (UTC)
Confusing, I guess "Alicorn" is the correct term then ? Maybe running an automatic correction would be beneficial, in both cases. Thanks –  Drakep6yPvD4.png  22:39, June 30, 2013 (UTC)
Yeah, I'll go take care of it now (mainspace only, for the record). ~Bobogoobo (talk) Lyra_speaks_S2E25.png 22:47, June 30, 2013 (UTC)

International song pages

Remove {{Title}} from all international song version pages {as it's transcluded through {{Songs/International versions}} now).-- Undisguised_Nyx_by_AibotNya.pngJonny Manztalkcontribse-mailedit count 20:42, September 9, 2013 (UTC)Disguised_Nyx_by_AibotNya.png 

Done. B0lGGoQ.gifOz  21:24, September 9, 2013 (UTC)

Sprinkle Medley

Change Category:Medley images to Category:Sprinkle Medley images on all applicable images, and if possible, update the appearances of the name in the main namespace from "Medley" or "[[Medley]]" to Sprinkle Medley or [[Sprinkle Medley]].-- Undisguised_Nyx_by_AibotNya.pngJonny Manztalkcontribse-mailedit count 02:13, September 13, 2013 (UTC)Disguised_Nyx_by_AibotNya.png 

Updated all remaining mainspace text with regex, category had already been done without a bot (there were 80-some images in there when I looked...all those poor photons and calories who were sacrificed in vain *shakes head*). ~Bobogoobo (talk) Lyra_speaks_S2E25.png 04:38, September 13, 2013 (UTC)

Time Turner

as per [[1]] – internal link screws up, and this is ugly, sorry. Seems it isn't automated, whichever the correct end to bring to it. Thanks –  Drakep6yPvD4.png  22:39, June 30, 2013 (UTC)

Yeah, well, that (see bottom) is on my list of things to do (not to mention other stuff I like to do). Maybe I'll get to it eventually, try poking me in a couple days. (Do you use Skype? That's a better way to get me personally.) ~Bobogoobo (talk) Lyra_speaks_S2E25.png 22:47, June 30, 2013 (UTC)
Wow... that's a lot of stuff to do. When I think that my accumulation of wiki post-its is already aggravating to me... Didn't know his was all done by you alone, the present page looked like a general "to-do" list of automatizations for edits when I first arrived here.

Which is the exact purpose of the present article ? Which procedure do you advise to follow for future suggestions of improvement ? Seems like poking you on Skype will just add to your stress, you sure about this ?

It's not that I care so much about a few corrected link, just thought this was the "add to dictionary" for bot spellchecking stuff here, or such thing. Thanks –  Drakep6yPvD4.png  23:28, June 30, 2013 (UTC)
It isn't just me by rule (several users have bots, though not all of them fit the "active" in the heading anymore), and I may be exaggerating, but it seems that at the moment others aren't too active. Using this forum is fine, and I don't mind being asked to do things. I don't think anyone keeps a list of things to be corrected, but maybe it would be a good idea to have our own typos list for AWB. Just a thought, probably won't happen. We just correct things as they get noticed and brought up here. ~Bobogoobo (talk) Lyra_speaks_S2E25.png 23:36, June 30, 2013 (UTC)
Thanks for your answer :)
I second the idea for the spelling auto correction, you already correct links and pics automatically, after all. At least that's what I've be lead to think ? Thanks –  Drakep6yPvD4.png  23:43, June 30, 2013 (UTC)
Well, I don't care to learn the required regex at the moment, so it could be a while :P. ~Bobogoobo (talk) Lyra_speaks_S2E25.png 00:07, July 1, 2013 (UTC)
The name "Dr. Hooves" is now his (one and only) first-party name, which I'd say increases the priority of replacing the wiki's outdated uses of any of his secondary names (Time Turner, Dr. Whooves, Doctor Whooves, Time-Turner, Doctor Hooves, anything else) with his primary name. (7)6(four) (talk) 22:00, September 12, 2013 (UTC)
I apologize for not ever getting around to this, I am currently executing it for the mainspace with all the names I could think of. I think all the files are already good because the ones using an alternate name do so in reference to what is shown in the image. ~Bobogoobo (talk) Lyra_speaks_S2E25.png 04:38, September 13, 2013 (UTC)

Adventures in Ponyville

Some of the images in Adventures in Ponyville/Gallery don't have the AiP prefix, and others have the entire game name prefix. In favor of shorter file links, just "AiP" seems to be better. Could a bot make all the files have AiP at the beginning? Thanks, Steph physarum (talk) FANMADE_Fluffle_Puff_Skittles.png 19:07, July 14, 2013 (UTC)

Done. – Ozuzanna 15:35, October 15, 2013 (UTC)
Thanks! Steph physarum (talk) 22:25, October 15, 2013 (UTC)

Episode categories

Remove "Category:Season (season number) episodes" from pages, as that category is now transcluded through {{Infobox episode}}.-- Undisguised_Nyx_by_AibotNya.pngJonny Manztalkcontribse-mailedit count 18:56, November 7, 2013 (UTC)Disguised_Nyx_by_AibotNya.png

International song videos

Place all song videos on all the international versions pages into Category:International song videos, instead of Category:Videos.-- Undisguised_Nyx_by_AibotNya.pngJonny Manztalkcontribse-mailedit count 15:33, October 15, 2013 (UTC)Disguised_Nyx_by_AibotNya.png 

Thanks for indirectly reminding me that I can get a list of these rather easily through the API. There seems to be quite a lot so we might want to separate them into season eventually but I'll put them all in there for now. ~Bobogoobo (talk) Lyra_speaks_S2E25.png 04:16, October 16, 2013 (UTC)
Yeah, I figured it would probably be best to categorize them under that for now, and then potentially make season 1, 2, 3, and EG subcategories from that parent category.-- Undisguised_Nyx_by_AibotNya.pngJonny Manztalkcontribse-mailedit count 04:27, October 16, 2013 (UTC)Disguised_Nyx_by_AibotNya.png 
Done.  FANMADE_Animated_Derpy_Hooves_desktop_ponies_sprite.gif Sig1.png Sig2.png  22:24, November 7, 2013 (UTC)

S4 premiere

Change all instances of "Princess Twilight - Part 1" and "Princess Twilight - Part 2" to "Princess Twilight Sparkle - Part 1" and "Princess Twilight Sparkle - Part 2" respectively. Also, move images in Category:Princess Twilight - Part 1 images to Category:Princess Twilight Sparkle - Part 1 images and those from Category:Princess Twilight - Part 2 images to Category:Princess Twilight Sparkle - Part 2 images.

Fleur Dis Lee

Since Fleur Dis Lee has her own page now, change links on pages from [[List of ponies#Fleur Dis Lee|Fleur Dis Lee]] to [[Fleur Dis Lee]], except on the list of ponies pages (where it's important to preserve those anchor links instead of direct page links).-- Undisguised_Nyx_by_AibotNya.pngJonny Manztalkcontribse-mailedit count 18:30, November 21, 2013 (UTC)Disguised_Nyx_by_AibotNya.png

Cancelled tasks

Parasprites images

Move parasprites' gallery from Creatures/Gallery#Parasprite to Parasprite/Gallery. Xeoxer (talk) 11:24, February 10, 2013 (UTC)

Why parasprites specifically? They have fewer images than, say, dragons do, and they've only had one appearance plus a cameo so far. ~Bobogoobo (talk) Lyra_speaks_S2E25.png 05:22, February 11, 2013 (UTC)

Main six galleries

Index for all Mane 6 and Spike created, please move the respective galleries. Xeoxer (talk) 19:37, February 18, 2013 (UTC)

You don't need to put things here when there's already a separate forum for them. I was a little early on that, we're going to wait a bit (closer to season 4) before moving the galleries. If you want you can store the indices in your sandbox until they're needed and leave a link on the forum about it so we know about them when we want to do it. Thanks for putting those together! ~Bobogoobo (talk) Lyra_speaks_S2E25.png 03:56, February 19, 2013 (UTC)

Twilie or Twily

Apparently, according to The Hub's favorite pony poll, Twilight's nickname is spelled "Twilie". So, maybe we should change "Twily" everywhere into "Twilie". Flippy Bear (talk) 21:11, July 30, 2013 (UTC)

"Twily" is used in the chapter book Twilight Sparkle and the Crystal Heart Spell and on the trading card "Best. Wedding. EVER." ("Twily" also was used by Sabrina Alberghetti.) So I think "Twily" still takes precedence over "Twilie". (7)6(four) (talk) 21:36, July 30, 2013 (UTC)
Agreed; Hasbro/Hub web postings don't tend to be checked too closely. ~Bobogoobo (talk) Lyra_speaks_S2E25.png 23:15, July 30, 2013 (UTC)
