This submission has been noted and is pending review for WikiConference North America 2019.


Advanced Wikignoming


Reliability of Information

Type of session:



A WikiGnome is a wiki user who makes useful incremental edits without clamoring for attention. WikiGnomes work behind the scenes of a wiki, tying up little loose ends and making things run more smoothly. Examples of WikiGnome-like behavior include improving punctuation, fixing typos, correcting poor grammar, creating redirects, adding categories, and repairing broken links.

This presentation will overview several Wikignoming work queues, including both any-editor tasks and administrator tasks. Topics covered include handling {{error}} transclusions, syncing unsynchronized talk page redirects, reviewing articles with redirect hatnotes needing review and articles with missing redirects, malplaced disambiguation pages, articles with with disallowed DISPLAYTITLE modifications, linked misspellings and miscapitalizations, and Infobox person using numbered parameter(s). Also history-merging.
