This page will keep a simple list of all the bot runs you need on this wikia. Please add new entries in the following format:

Bluelink to current category name or text (so [[:Category:Whatever]]) --> Redlink to proposed new category name or replacement text ~~~~

It'll be really important to sign your entry with four tildes so that I know who to talk to if there's a question.

Let's start the list with a couple of examples.

*[[:Category:Nord]] → [[:Category:Nords]] - [[:User:Ghost Anubis|Ghost Anubis]]
*[[:Category:Breton]] → [[:Category:Bretons]] - [[:User:Ghost Anubis|Ghost Anubis]]


Officially, Wikia does not support bot usage. Any work done by a member of Wikia Staff is performed on an "as is" basis only, and work done here is no promise of bot work done on any other Wikia. Put another way, this is not a regular service provided by Wikia, and we cannot promise to provide it elsewhere.

Though every effort will be made to ensure that only bots of the very highest quality will be used, with any bot usage there is always the potential that unintentional changes will be made. Most unintentional changes can be corrected, because they'll happen in a regular pattern. If you see a series of changes you don't like, please don't panic. Instead, take note of them to increase the chances that an "antidote" bot run can be found.
