Automatically updating Borderlands: The Pre-Sequel weapons / weapon category templates

Zuriki October 25, 2014 User blog:Zuriki

I have created a small bot that does two things:

  1. Creates a list of weapons split by category (limited Borderlands: The Pre-Sequel weapons)
  2. Auto-magically fills out a weapons template in the standard format (organised by Category and sub-divided by Common/Unique/Legendary/Pearlescent)

The bot itself doesn't update the articles, but it does create the list of articles for use in AutoWikiBrowser.

I have already generated the relevant templates and manually added them to the article (eg. Template:ShotgunsTPS) but I have not put them in to active use on the weapon pages as this would create 67 article updates in the recent updates page (since this account is not a bot-flagged account).

So, basically, I am requesting permission from the community/admins to run this mass update on the relevant articles so they have the template attached. I feel it's best to do this through a bot because it's a very simple edit that has to be made en-mass to a large number of articles and for the sake of getting it done, a bot would save a lot of unnecessary time and effort.
