Dorcus grandis[edit]

So there is a stag beetle with the binomial name Dorcus grandis that doesn't seem to be listed, mind making page for it? 2601:5CB:C101:293E:78EC:1291:818:C88A 04:53, 10 October 2017 (UTC)

Yes check.svg Done. The page Dorcus grandis is now created, including pages for the subspecies D. g. grandis and D. g. moriyai. –Tommy Kronkvist (talk), 01:12, 14 October 2017 (UTC).
Thank you sir. 2601:5CB:C101:293E:B50E:7380:D0F7:5A48 03:31, 14 October 2017 (UTC)

Thanks, @Tommy Kronkvist:, yes on blacklist also, just used it to see that Huggles automatic comment (button number 7 from the left, a yellow square) is working, which it is! Dan Koehl (talk) 23:46, 13 October 2017 (UTC)
That explains the relatively mild tone in your message... ;-) In any case the auto-comment function is a nice feature. Tommy Kronkvist (talk), 23:51, 13 October 2017 (UTC).

AutoWikiBrowser and typos[edit]

Hi Dan, I am wondering how AutoWikiBrowser works. I noticed that you corrected the German word "Autors", so I added a comment in Wikispecies:AutoWikiBrowser/Typos. But in subsequent edits, you corrected it again, see e.g. [1], [2]. Is there the possibility to selectively choose which word needs to be fixed? Also, I do not speak Swedish but it seems to me that in this edit, the word "Japans" does not need to be corrected. Kind regards, Korg (talk) 08:44, 14 October 2017 (UTC)

@Korg:, you did the right thing, thanks, and sorry about the three files. For sure, for every time I go through the files, solutions for the problems you described will hep avoid new errors. The {{lang}} template is oe of them. The configurations you did at the Wikispecies:AutoWikiBrowser/Typos is another. Needless to say, the corrections of hundred of files with plainly misspelled words, is a tiring work, which would of course be good if a bot could take care of, but it seems difficault at this stage, so manually spellchecking all the files is still needed. Thanks a lof for your feedback! Dan Koehl (talk) 10:36, 14 October 2017 (UTC)
You're welcome! Just to let you know, you added twice the {{lang}} template in several pages (e.g. [3]), but I removed it as it is redundant. Best wishes, Korg (talk) 20:57, 15 October 2017 (UTC)
Thanks a lot @Korg:. Im once again going through the files. converting hyphen to dashes, please give me a note if you see anything strange. Dan Koehl (talk) 21:01, 15 October 2017 (UTC)
