You don't aim small, do go Bry? :P

I know there are one or two ratings extensions out there for MediaWiki, so I'll be able to slot one of those in if this takes off. I might also be able to hack up a form that would take those inputs, though I don't really want to put the effort into that unless we get a bot sorted out. A bot I cannot do! --Lex (talk - contribs) 04:40, 4 May 2008 (EDT)

The bot is not unfeasibly complex to make, I could possibly do it given enough time as unlike when I made the previous bot I am not on holidays so have much more limited time. I could probably get it done in a week or two as once I have started I won't be able to stop. That is the first bot Bry mentioned, the second looks more complex as the show pages are fun to play with. It is theoretically possible but I wouldn't feel confident that I could make a bugless code to do that. The voting mechanism would be the first thing that would need to be sorted. I would need some sort of output to play with to make it. It sounds like a fun project though so I am in if we go ahead with it.--BenS 11:06, 4 November 2008 (EST)

Hi Bry Bots can be created with cron-jobs. Aren't there however plugins for wiki for this tool.--Gelon 08:02, 4 November 2008 (EST)
