I would like to have autowikibrowser rights to speed up edits that are too slow when done manually. I work with ((infobox company)) articles and would like to use AWB for speeding up edits that would take way too long to edit manually. WiinterU 00:24, 3 June 2024 (UTC)[reply]

I don't intend to process this request, but I thought I'd help speed it along by asking you to elaborate a bit on what you intend to use it for @WiinterU. Hey man im josh (talk) 19:21, 4 June 2024 (UTC)[reply]
@WiinterU: Any thoughts on what you'd be using AWB for? Hey man im josh (talk) 13:07, 7 June 2024 (UTC)[reply]

I became aware of AWB on WikiProject Check Wikipedia while helping on fixing errors via Toolforge. I do have over 400 non-automated edits. I want to use AWB to continue my error fixing work more fast.


I don't really like typos and want to test tools like the AWB. I now have nearly 600 edits. I've been registered on Wikipedia since the beginning of the year. AX29 (talk) 11:26, 15 June 2024 (UTC)[reply]


Hello. I am requesting autowikibrowser rights so that I can complete tedious edits, such as adding dozens of pages to the same category or adding navboxes to pages, more easily. It seems that AWB will help me with these tasks. I mostly work with New Zealand politics articles which are sometimes poorly categorised. Thanks for your consideration. —idiosyncritic 19:59, 18 June 2024 (UTC)[reply]

Hello, I would like to use AWB for common reference errors (i.e. CS1 errors), and filling bare references on many pages. Backlog reduction, basically. Also, of course, I would like to use it for fixing other little stuff like common typos and grammar issues. Thank you. EatingCarBatteries (contributions, talk) 05:30, 19 June 2024 (UTC)[reply]

I would like to request AWB rights to assist in correcting reference errors and stub sorting. Specific areas I would use AWB to focus on are the items populating Category:CS1 errors: periodical ignored, Category:CS1 errors: missing periodical, Category:CS1 errors: unsupported parameter.

As a WikiGnome, I fix a lot of spelling and grammatical errors. I want to use AutoWikiBrowser to be more effective. I promise to use it responsibly. Tonyfaull (talk) 20:08, 20 June 2024 (UTC)[reply]



Recently, I have made hundreds of edits primarily consisting of correcting proper names related to Brazil and, more generally, to the Portuguese-speaking world. For example, I have fixed the name of Luiz Inácio Lula da Silva, President of Brazil, which was incorrectly spelled on dozens, if not hundreds, of pages (sometimes as Luís Inácio, Luis Inacio, etc.). Other cases relating to presidents of Brazil include José Sarney (sometimes spelled Jose Sarney), Juscelino Kubitschek (sometimes spelled Juscelino Kubitscheck), and so on, to avoid going into too much detail. Regarding place names, I have corrected Rio de Janeiro (sometimes spelled Río de Janeiro, Rio De Janeiro, etc.), São Paulo (sometimes spelled Sao Paulo, etc.), Brasília (often spelled Brasilia), and so forth. There are more to be corrected, such as Belém, Maranhão, and so on.

That said, I would like to gain access to AutoWikiBrowser to make these edits more easily and efficiently, no more being so limited to redirects as I currently am. For what it's worth, I am fully aware of WP:NOTBROKEN, so I will not make changes to valid redirects, but rather to those with spelling errors ("Spelling errors and other mistakes should be corrected. Don't link to a misspelled redirect"). I also refer to WP:DIACRITICS, emphasizing that the changes I make are well-supported by English-language sources.

Finally, given that AutoWikiBrowser is such a powerful tool, I commit to being cautious while using it, always following the principle "if I'm not sure, I won't do it", to avoid issues that could lead to losing access to it. I have some knowledge of regular expressions, which could be useful when operating it.
