Bot's tasks for which permission is being sought: Commons:Deletion requests/Transcluded user signatures was closed with the decision to substitute the templates. The signatures have currently not been substituted. I would like to use RileyBot to substitute all of those templates. 2049 pages will be edited.

Automatic or manually assisted: Automatic

Edit type (e.g. Continuous, daily, one time run): One time run

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

Bot flag requested: (Y/N): Y

Programming language(s): AWB
This task was orginally requested by Ryan Vesey Bot at Commons:Bots/Requests/Ryan Vesey Bot but the user seems to have lost interest and the task needs to be done. Please see the comments left at Commons:Bots/Requests/Ryan Vesey Bot. Riley Huntley (talk) 06:48, 25 February 2013 (UTC)


  • I have made 10 test edits on my account (since my bot doesn't have AWB access) and the results can be found here. Riley Huntley (talk) 06:58, 25 February 2013 (UTC)
  • See Commons:Bots/Requests/Ryan Vesey Bot, a bot request for the same task further down on this page. That one is waiting for community consensus. Please check up on the status of that discussion and give your opinion. --Dschwen (talk) 14:55, 25 February 2013 (UTC)
  • Ha, sorry, I guess I was not yet properly caffeinated when I made that comment. I'll go ahead and close Ryan's request as stale. --Dschwen (talk) 15:51, 25 February 2013 (UTC)
  • Ok, after looking at the test edits (looks fine) I am inclined to green light this. I'd suggest going ahead with all namespaces, since this is unconroversial enough and I haven't seen vehement opposition to performing the substitution in file namespace. --Dschwen (talk) 16:02, 25 February 2013 (UTC)
  • I personally do not see the need for further testing. The edit summary also looks good. I will approve this if no objections are raised within the next couple of hours. --Dschwen (talk) 18:50, 25 February 2013 (UTC)

Approved, this has been discussed on the Ryan Vesey Bot request quite a bit. So I'm closing this one quickly. --Dschwen (talk) 00:32, 26 February 2013 (UTC)

  • I have substituted all the signatures listed at Commons:Deletion requests/Transcluded user signatures except for User:Upior polnocy/signature as it was striked. Should this signature be substituted as well? Riley Huntley (talk) 06:29, 27 February 2013 (UTC)
    • Sigh, I see no reason not to substitute User:Upior polnocy's signature, and some people in the discussion agree. The verdict of the DR was keep but subst. And it seems to me that Upior polnocy was mostly opposed to the deletion of his sig template. I'm gonna say just go ahead. --Dschwen (talk) 17:14, 27 February 2013 (UTC)
