Template Spring Clean (Citation Templates)

Yodabot, how easy would it be for you to finally eradicate all Cite article references on pages and convert to the correct Cite book so we could delete all these old format citation templates? That would tidy quite a bit. --Fleanetha (talk) 13:17, 19 December 2012 (UTC)

Completed through Descent into Midnight. Cite article templates still need to be deleted, which should be easy once all transclusions have been replaced. —Paizo Publishing, LLC.png Yoda8myhead (talk) 18:36, 20 December 2012 (UTC)
Splendid. I can delete but how does one replace all transclusions? --Fleanetha (talk) 19:38, 20 December 2012 (UTC)
YodaBot already replaced them. I can also delete them en masse without cluttering the Recent Changes page, but I need to compile a list of the ones to remove. —Paizo Publishing, LLC.png Yoda8myhead (talk) 20:01, 20 December 2012 (UTC)
Ok, so it looks like I missed a few, but those have now been changed over and the original Cite article templates deleted. I'm working my way through the last batch of templates now. I'll update when all of them have been removed, and if you notice any that I missed, please report them here.—Paizo Publishing, LLC.png Yoda8myhead (talk) 21:37, 20 December 2012 (UTC)
Done. There should now be no citation templates using the old "Cite article" template, and all transclusions of these now-deleted templates throughout the wiki have been changed to their current {{Cite book}} versions. —Paizo Publishing, LLC.png Yoda8myhead (talk) 21:57, 20 December 2012 (UTC)
Just looked at the bot record - that's a hell of a lot of work to have done manually - thank you. That's a tiny end of an era too, with the cite article having gone. I remember, when I first joined, that the two formats were confusing so I think this particular clean up is beneficial for more than just spring cleaning purposes. Cheers. --Fleanetha (talk) 22:10, 20 December 2012 (UTC)

Tree containing categories

Yodabot, how easily could you move all pages in either Category:Forests or Category:Woodlands to Category:Forests and woodlands please? Then we can delete the other two categories for simplification. --Fleanetha (talk) 13:20, 19 December 2012 (UTC)

Done —Paizo Publishing, LLC.png Yoda8myhead (talk) 21:13, 19 December 2012 (UTC)
Marvellous service thank you - I may be back for more. --Fleanetha (talk) 09:17, 20 December 2012 (UTC)

Absalom City Districts

Dear Yodabot, I have created a new category tree structure for the four Absalom city districts taking the definite article. --Fleanetha (talk) 08:46, 27 December 2012 (UTC)

  • Category:The Docks already existed and there is nothing in there or its subcategories that needs moving.
  • Category:Puddles had a single member so I changed that and deleted the old categories
  • Category:Coins and Category:Petal District have a number of members and subcategories with members. Can you move all those pages to the new categories and subcategories that have 'The' added please? Then delete the old structure or let me know and I'll do that.
  • I have also moved the main pages to take the definite article with a redirect from the old pages. I am unsure whether we need to systematically go through and amend all instances of page linking as the redirect should take care of that automatically already.
Done. I didn't delete any old categories, nor did I replace links to the old primary articles, as I think we're ok to let redirects take care of that. —Paizo Publishing, LLC.png Yoda8myhead (talk) 17:24, 31 December 2012 (UTC)
Many thanks and I think I have now cleaned up what needs tidying with respect to this change, plus changed the PathfinderWiki talk:Naming conventions to avoid confusion. We may wish to adopt a formal policy re this. --Fleanetha (talk) 12:51, 2 January 2013 (UTC)

Subtype Categories

We have two categories in Category:Creatures by subtype out of synch with everything else: Category:Swarms and Category:Demons: they should be Category:Swarm subtype creatures and Category:Demon subtype creatures, respectively. --Fleanetha (talk) 08:57, 27 December 2012 (UTC)

Done. Some articles in Category:Demons probably shouldn't be in Category:Demon subtype creatures, however, like Abyssal realm, Demon lord, etc. It may be worth it to look through the new category and make sure everything that's there wouldn't better fit somewhere else in the category tree. —Paizo Publishing, LLC.png Yoda8myhead (talk) 17:24, 31 December 2012 (UTC)
Many thanks again. I think this is all tidy now for both subtypes. --Fleanetha (talk) 15:06, 2 January 2013 (UTC)


Have I got a job for you User:YodaBot? We have inconsistency within Category:Humans with a few plural and mainly singular subcategories. I have already made all the singular categories, so could you move all the pages that have the plural form to the singular form please? I have listed below which ones need conversion:

Then we have Category:Humans itself which should really be Category:Human for total consistency - is that possible too?

Thanks. --Fleanetha (talk) 14:31, 22 May 2013 (UTC)

This has been taken care of. In the future, you don't need to create the new categories, as the script will automatically do so and copy the contents of the original category over to them. The result is that we need to manually delete the original, unused category in this circumstance. —Paizo Publishing, LLC.png Yoda8myhead (talk) 20:15, 22 May 2013 (UTC)
So User:YodaBot you are even more clever than I thought. Thank you --Fleanetha (talk) 21:45, 22 May 2013 (UTC)

PFS Scenarios with Missing Tiers

Yodabot, As requested by your lord and master, here is a list of the scenarios that are not categorized by tier after your cleanup last week:

--Feegle (talk) 12:55, 22 July 2013 (UTC)

This is done. —Paizo Publishing, LLC.png Yoda8myhead (talk) 19:32, 22 July 2013 (UTC)

Empyreal Lords

Generous Yodabot, do you fancy applying an extension please to the {{Empyreal lords}} on each appropriate page to allow expansion of the appropriate section? Also can you add it to any pages to which it is not currently attached? If this is too difficult / awkward / not bot-able, fleanethabot will take it on. --Fleanetha (talk) 14:34, 22 August 2013 (UTC)

This is done and YodaBot is in the process of cleaning up after himself. —Paizo Publishing, LLC.png Yoda8myhead (talk) 20:27, 22 August 2013 (UTC)
Thank you O mechanical wonder --Fleanetha (talk) 22:01, 22 August 2013 (UTC)

Source needed template

Could you change all instances where {{fact}} appears into something more intuitive like {{source}}? FoiledAgain (talk) 12:15, 22 March 2014 (UTC)

This process is currently underway. Should be done shortly. You may want to do a scan for anywhere we tell people in help or tutorial pages to use {{fact}} and replace those with {{source}}. —Paizo Publishing, LLC.png Yoda8myhead (talk) 19:18, 22 March 2014 (UTC)
thanks. I'll make that check. FoiledAgain (talk) 19:23, 22 March 2014 (UTC)
