Can we use a bot to categorize uncategorized "FOP in Foo" discussions?Edit

See what I mean here. Manually, this is thousands of pages. But the code is simple. Ex. search for text "in South Korea" , check if appropriate category (ex Category:South Korean FOP cases in this case) is present, if not, append. PS. I just went through 50 or so Korean FOP cases, there were just 2 false positives, and miscategorizing a few discussion pages shouldn't hurt anyone - on the other hand, having those pages categorized would make it easier to have discussion on the affect of FOP laws on free media, etc. Currently I'd estimate 50-90% of FOP deletions are not properly categorized. --Piotr Konieczny aka Prokonsul Piotrus Talk 08:25, 18 April 2017 (UTC)

AWB find and replace requestEdit

Hello, I need to fix about 360 links with irregular values. Would someone be able to use AWB or another tool to locate the broken links and replace them with the correct ones? Here is a spread sheet containing the page names and the find & replace text for each page. Many thanks, Jason Jason.nlw (talk) 14:48, 10 May 2017 (UTC)

Purge a categoryEdit

Could someone write a bot to purge Category:Self-published work of all the images that invoke the category directly? Until I edited it just now, File:Hansen Field.JPG was one such image. This category, like several other high-level status categories, is meant for transclusion via templates; it should never be added directly. Nyttend (talk) 01:27, 15 May 2017 (UTC)

@Nyttend: That cat is empty of files per this search. Am I missing something?   — Jeff G. ツ 01:39, 15 May 2017 (UTC)
On the other hand, "This category contains 18,040,896 files which is 46.29% of all 38,973,239 files in Wikimedia Commons."   — Jeff G. ツ 01:58, 15 May 2017 (UTC)
Search for insource:"Category:Self-published work" shall give some results. VFC found at least 1000 (I didn't search further) results with this search query --Zhuyifei1999 (talk) 11:33, 15 May 2017 (UTC)

Category renamesEdit

Hi, Could someone rename Category:UScapitol images from flickr to Category:Files from US Capitol Flickr stream (see Category:Flickr streams). 3,830 files is too many to be done via VFC. Thanks in advance. Regards, Yann (talk) 11:31, 18 May 2017 (UTC)
