Summary by PokestarFan

CheckPage was non-existant

Mariusm (talkcontribs)

Can you please tell me how did you get the permission to use the ''AWB'' program on Wikispecies, ''AWB'' being a restricted program which can only be used by admins or after special permission? I also ask you '''not''' to use the ''AWB'' before being fully aware of our formats and our policies. Thank you. Mariusm (talk) 04:41, 22 June 2017 (UTC)

@Mariusm Wikispecies did not have a CheckPage to moderate this program, so any user could use AWB in this project without authorization. I have solved this with Wikispecies:AutoWikiBrowser/CheckPage. See Thread in Administrators' Noticeboard for More Information. Regards.

Summary by PokestarFan

PokestarFan made bad mistakes with AutoWikiBrowser.

Please stop your edits which remove the authors links like [https://species.wikimedia.org/w/index.php?title=Zoltan_Kaszab&curid=146688&diff=3379620&oldid=3334110 this one]. This is a critical WS feature. If you continue with this you'll be blocked. ~~~~

Do you need help undoing these edits, PokestarFan or can you do them yourself?

PokestarFan (talkcontribs)

I would like some help.

Koavf (talkcontribs)

Good deal. And just so you know, not all of the edits are *bad* as such but many are purely unnecessary.

PokestarFan (talkcontribs)

I was just trying to help, but I know nothing whatsoever about taxons.

Koavf (talkcontribs)

I assume good faith--I've seen you before on WMF projects and I'm sure you were trying to help. Some of what you did was useful but some of it was just undesirable. None of it was vandalism or anything that is a critical emergency.

Also, edits such as this: https://species.wikimedia.org/w/index.php?title=Zoya_Yefremova&diff=prev&oldid=3379630are purely cosmetic and serve no function.

Summary by PokestarFan

Unblocked as of now

Mariusm (talkcontribs)

Since you made a massive damage to the author pages removing links, and done this without consulting the community you have been blocked for a month. Please '''do not''' use the AWB program in the future without firs exactly communicating what the nature of your edits is! Mariusm (talk) 04:44, 21 June 2017 (UTC)

Koavf (talkcontribs)

I have unblocked so that Pokestarfan can help with checking his own edits and fixing ones that need to be fixed.
