You need support to edit?
Tell us here and we'll do our best!

Our Job Exchange is a place where our users can file a request for edits which they cannot do on their own, either due to the amount of work (e. g. performing a serial edit), or because of missing userrights (e. g. editing a locked page). The Job Exchange is free to use for everyone.

How to file a new request

  1. Choose the template matching your request best
  2. Go to the linked documentation and copy the code provided there
  3. Come back here, edit the page and insert the code at the bottom of the page
  4. Fill in the required parameters which are highlighted red on the documentation pages
  5. The best is to use New Rq: <Job name> as summary, so admins will find it faster
  6. Preview and finally save the page

Tasks for the Job Exchange

Insert the code at the end of this page and fill in the parameters.

  • Batch Move (Move pages with a certain prefix to the pages with a different prefix instead)
  • Edit Page (Edit a locked page, e. g. fix typos or change template values)
  • Insert Album (Insert the album parameter for a huge number of pages)
  • Redirect Page (Redirect one or more pages to a [new] target)
  • Update Artist (Update the artist parameter in {{Song}}, likely after a batch move)

Other tasks may follow soon.

Page: Failure:Tree of Stars EP (2014) Block reason: Not given   Where: Page Title Old content: Failure:Tree of Stars EP (2014) New content: Failure:Tree Of Stars EP (2014)  Note: I was not fully aware of the page name capitalization guidelines (sorry about that!). According to the FAQ it is possible to rename the page, but unfortunately as a newly registered user I do not have the power to do so. Thanks!   Admin: LichtweberLwt did it. You actually can rename pages by using the "move page" option in the edit menu.  Done: 17:03, September 21, 2014 (UTC)
