Ce n’est pas un bug. Il a corrigé

et a homogénéisé les apostrophes dans la foulée. Sam Hocevar 18:18, 18 May 2005 (UTC)[reply]

An idea for Diderobot[edit]

Hi Sam,

One thing Diderobot could do to the benefit of us all: replace constructs like "&#1110;" with the appropriate character (in this case, "і"). This kind of thing occurs still very frequently on en:, with Cyrillic and other non-Latin characters, even in interwiki links, because it hasn't been a long time since UTF-8 is supported there. It makes pages hard to read when editing, and it is rather tedious to fix manually (you need to preview the article and copy+paste the appropriate characters from the article text, which sometimes involves a lot of scrolling up and down; I can't think of an easier way).

Also, "&#8210;" (that is, "‒") and the like could be replaced directly with "-", maybe even in a single go (there are a few other characters like this, mainly "smart quotes").

Oh, good idea. And I have in fact the code ready for this. I will test it a bit more and then run it. Sam Hocevar 14:06, 30 August 2005 (UTC)[reply]
I just noticed that there is already a bot doing this (or is it yours too? :)) But thanks anyway! KissL 07:36, 5 September 2005 (UTC)[reply]

Besoin de bot?[edit]

Salut Sam,

Je connais l'existance de la page Wikipédia:Bot/Requêtes, mais je ne pense pas que celle-ci soit appropriée.

Je suis contributeur du projet Ekopedia et nous aurions besoin d'un correcteur orthographique/syntaxique. Nous avons rapidement fait le tours de l'existant et il semble que le tien réponde aux critères. Maintenant la question est: est-il libre?

Pour ce qui est de le faire fonctionner, cela ne devrait pas (à prioris) poser de pb.

Your bot.[edit]

Do you mide if you give me a copy, or something of your bot, o that I can use it, for wikipedia?

Thanks!-- 01:29, 7 February 2007 (UTC)[reply]

Wikispelling at Wikiversity[edit]

Sam, Wikispelling is an excellent resource! I have replicated it at Translation and invite you to collaborate with us on this valuable project. Quinobi 02:35, 31 July 2009 (UTC)[reply]
