Test run tonight, if there are no objections. Storkk (talk) 11:40, 8 December 2016 (UTC)

I've started the test. I've had to add {{LicenseReview}} to get around Special:AbuseFilter/156... but unfortunately the NFC website is down at the moment, so the license cannot be independently checked. Storkk (talk) 21:52, 8 December 2016 (UTC)
An error where descriptions were occasionally appended was fixed. Storkk (talk) 22:13, 8 December 2016 (UTC)
The preliminary run has now completed. Storkk (talk) 22:37, 8 December 2016 (UTC)
