Because of your edits to and time on the wiki, Autopatrolled has been added to your user rights. This lets you bypass most of the abuse filters, bypass the CAPTCHA, and edit more frequently. If you have questions, bleat ask away.

We hope you enjoy your newfound ᴘᴏᴡᴇʀ — and these external tools:


My condolences, and here are the instructions for your mop and bucket. Alec Sanderson (talk) 01:45, 11 July 2015 (UTC)


Poke a mod. FuzzyCatTomato (talk/stalk) 03:12, 11 July 2015 (UTC)

I think it's one of Miekal's pages. Best to let it be? (See the talk page of the one who blocked him.) Alec Sanderson (talk) 03:13, 11 July 2015 (UTC)
Yeah, but they're just redirects. No point in them being there, but they're not hurting anybody anyway. I'll just leave it be. -Einstein95 (talk) 03:42, 11 July 2015 (UTC)

Typo fixing[edit]

So eh, you use something like AWB it seems? Good job on removing typos from ze wiki. --JorisEnter (talk) 15:26, 4 January 2016 (UTC)

Yeah, I use AWB. Does quite a good job, even though it does spam the Recent Changes page. -Einstein95 (talk) 15:47, 4 January 2016 (UTC)
I noticed that. At least 50 edits within 16 minutes or so. --JorisEnter (talk) 15:52, 4 January 2016 (UTC)
I applaud any effort to clean up spelling mistakes and such; I see you fixed some of my Carpetsmoker-isms such as spelling apparently as apparantly. Thanks for that! But, at the same time, I'm wary of changing stylistic choices. The comma after "For example" is a stylistic choice, and none of the options is "more correct" than the other... Carpetsmoker (talk) 23:12, 4 January 2016 (UTC)
You're right, it's just one of the defaults in the regex typo fixing. Guess it's something Wikipedia likes. -Einstein95 (talk) 00:33, 7 January 2016 (UTC)
I tried AWB on RW a few years ago and couldn't get it to work. Did you have to do anything special? Worth writing up a quick guide? - David Gerard (talk) 10:00, 6 January 2016 (UTC)
Sure. After downloading the latest version, go to Options > Preferences (Ctrl+P) > Site. Set "Project" to "custom" then "http" and "". Also of note is to change some of the alerts in the Alerts tab, like "Contains 'sic' tag". In the "Options" in the bottom half of the main window, tick "Regex typo fixing" and press OK to any windows that appear (it's just saying that it'll download the regexes from RW, fail and then download them from Wikipedia). -Einstein95 (talk) 00:33, 7 January 2016 (UTC)
