Forums: Index Brawl Talk R.I.P. the DOJO

As I'm sure most of you have noticed, the Smash Bros. DOJO!! has been replaced with an equivalent site for Super Smash Bros. 4, and does not seem to have been archived or mirrored (except on the Wayback Machine); plus, this has left a lot of dead links on the Wiki. Would it be possible for us to host a fully functional archive/mirror of the DOJO? RickTommy 06:43, 20 June 2013 (EDT)

Looks like I was mistaken: [1]. But still, it's a pain to change every single link to the DOJO on this Wiki. RickTommy 06:51, 20 June 2013 (EDT)
Assuming the URLs are the same except with "/wii" stuck in them, a bot could do it. - Ceci n’est pas un Smiddle. 09:49, 20 June 2013 (EDT)
That sounds easy enough. Can one tell whether it's a Brawl link versus a SSB4 link just by looking at it? XL 10:03, 20 June 2013 (EDT)
For some of the links, I assume we can check whether ArticleIcons has a parameter activated for Brawl but not for SSB4, for which we conclude it's a Brawl link. It won't catch links on pages that relate to both games, but at least it's a start. - Ceci n’est pas un Smiddle. 13:14, 20 June 2013 (EDT)
Hm that won't work because this interface isn't capable of looking at anything outside of the target replacement zone. Would have to run in "look at each edit and press a button to approve it" mode instead of "do everything" mode, unless we're okay with reverting ~15 edits to SSB4 pages as a payment.

Not that I know how bots work, but is it possible to run it in some kind of "apply only to following pages" mode? - Ceci n’est pas un Smiddle. 15:43, 20 June 2013 (EDT)
Indeed. A plan has been established; we'll see how this goes. XL 19:26, 20 June 2013 (EDT)
Alright that worked pretty well. No more broken Brawl DOJO links should exist, you can fix any I missed manually. XL 20:43, 20 June 2013 (EDT)
