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/album parameters in {{SongHeader}}, likely after a batch move)

Other tasks may follow soon.

Page: [[File:OK_Go_-_Do_What_You_Want.png]] Block reason: I don't think I can edit file names as a normal user

Yes you can, but here I think the pic wasn't recognised because it's a .png (though usually, PNGs work).  · Lichtweber talk service  02:03, February 14, 2016 (UTC)

  Where: file name Old content: OK_Go_-_Do_What_You_Want.png New content: OK Go - Do What You Want.png  Note: I accidentally left underscores in the file name so that the OK Go page doesn't link to the album image properly for the "DO What You Want" album section.

Underscores in file names are not a problem since handled as spaces.  · Lichtweber talk service  02:08, February 14, 2016 (UTC)   Admin:  · Lichtweber talk service   Done: 02:03, February 14, 2016 (UTC)
