missing interwiki links on MA/enEdit

Hello! Our bot was running and generated a list of nearly 1800 interwiki links that are missing here. So I'm looking for somebody to add these IWL using the english warnfile our bot generated (which I would send per email). It would be nice if one of your bots could manage this, so I don't need to request bot permission on MA/en and botflag from wikia staff. Thank you very much! --Plasmarelais Ξ TALK Ξ Ξ 22:49, 25 May 2009 (UTC)

"Personal" filesEdit

Not sure if this can be done, but a list of files only used in the User namespace. - Archduk3 01:03, February 13, 2014 (UTC)

"The" EnterpriseEdit

A bot should be used to remove the word "the" from the start of references to Enterprise NX-01, in most cases of that. There seems to be a lot of references to "the EnterpriseNX", whereas that's actually not how it should be formatted (as is noted at the start of the bginfo on the page about the ship itself). Note that, in cases where the text read something like "the EnterpriseNX crew", the "the" should still be kept. --Defiant (talk) 10:59, March 29, 2016 (UTC)


Perhaps a bot can be used to change any instances of " - ", replacing it with " – " instead. --Defiant (talk) 10:59, March 29, 2016 (UTC)

That is too specific; it would mess up all the links that use hyphens, eg: USS Enterprise (NCC-1701) --> USS Enterprise (NCC–1701) wouldn't work. --Alan del Beccio (talk) 00:19, September 2, 2016 (UTC)

Obviously. It's pretty obvious I meant in the text, which is why I deliberately put a space on either side of the hyphen. I still think it's feasible. --Defiant (talk) 16:53, October 13, 2016 (UTC)

There are still problems with that approach, even doing it by hand it seems. - Archduk3 04:11, October 18, 2016 (UTC)

I disagree; it just requires vigilance while switching them over. --Defiant (talk) 09:31, October 18, 2016 (UTC)
