(1.VSNCT)Bot (talk · contribs)

Operator: :| TelCoNaSpVe :|

Bot's tasks for which permission is being sought: Fixing DoubleRedirects (

Automatic or manually assisted: Largely automatic, but I may on occasion monitor it.

Edit type (e.g. Continuous, daily, one time run): Daily, when the special page is updated.

Maximum edit rate (eg edits per minute): 6 edits/minute

My bot already has the flag on several other wikis and is functioning correctly (at the Incubator Wiki and the MediaWiki Wiki). :| TelCoNaSpVe :| 03:02, 3 March 2011 (UTC)


Please make a test run. --EugeneZelenko (talk) 15:52, 3 March 2011 (UTC)
I've made circa 50 edits with the bot now. I think the test has so far at least demonstrated that it is working properly. :| TelCoNaSpVe :| 08:34, 25 March 2011 (UTC)
Looks OK for me. --EugeneZelenko (talk) 14:54, 26 March 2011 (UTC)
Looks OK, I don't think that this is done now and with the increasing number of useless file renames, this is the right moment. --Foroa (talk) 15:48, 1 April 2011 (UTC)
How is this bot helping with that? --Dschwen (talk) 12:00, 3 April 2011 (UTC)
As people change file names much more easily, there are much more double and broken redirects. I clean out 10 to 30 broken file redirects per week. --Foroa (talk) 14:51, 5 April 2011 (UTC)
Looks OK. --Schlurcher (talk) 14:25, 5 April 2011 (UTC)
