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

Bluelink to current category name or text (so [[:Category:Whatever]]) → (Alt Code 26) 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, FANDOM does not support bot usage. Any work done by a member of FANDOM Staff is performed on an "as is" basis only, and work done here is no promise of bot work done on any other FANDOM. Put another way, this is not a regular service provided by FANDOM, 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.


  1. The first round of requests was handled by FANDOM Staff on 29 November 2014. Please feel free to reach out to fellow FANDOMs for future bot runs. — CzechOut 03:21, November 30, 2014 (UTC)
  2. The second round was handled by Noreplyz on January 6, 2016. Noreplyz talk 01:15, January 6, 2016 (UTC)

  • Correct "zero-width spaces"
    • Tried that a long time ago (it is in Dominoes' list). It didn't work, the bot did not recognize the different spaces. You could try asking someone else with a bot if they can do that. Energy X 16:07, 4 July 2021 (UTC)

  • "|(lang.)_name" → "|(lang.)_title" (Template:EpisodeBox)
    • Done. Energy X 16:07, 4 July 2021 (UTC)
      • Could you apply it to chapter pages too please. Ellis99 Diancie 13:43, 11 July 2021 (UTC)
  • "PT(num.)" → "PL(num.)" (All pages, including images too)
  • Remove "|writers = {{WP|en|Hidenori Kusaka}}" and "|artists = {{WP|en|Satoshi Yamamoto}}" from volume pages. (info has been moved to the VolumeBox temp.)
    • Reverted the change, because it is not a good way to make a template to enforce those two people's names to be displayed. You don't know if you need to use the template and that you don't have to specify which artist/writer it is (and in that case, Yamamoto/Kusaka's names would be displayed even if wrong). Energy X 16:07, 4 July 2021 (UTC)
