A new tool has been setup on the wiki. I wrote ArchiveTool to make the archiving of talkpages easy to do. On a large talkpage to use it simply click the "Archive" tab next to "Refresh" and highlight the lines you wish to archive by clicking and mousing over them. You can also click on the long bars on the right to select/deselect entire sections all at once. Then hit the (save) link and it'll create the archive and update the talkpage for you. ~NOTASTAFF Daniel Friesen (DanTMan, Nadir Seen Fire) (talk) Jul 1, 2009 @ 10:22 (UTC)

eh...wat refresh button, i checked the pic...i dont have anythin like that....-- AlienGamer--Talk-- 12:09, 1 July 2009 (UTC)
Me neither. The only tab bar I have has the following buttons: Edit this page, leave message, history, move and watch/unwatch. Maybe it's just for sysops? Sounds like an awesome new tool, though. :3 ~Hakinu (talk | contribs) 22:38, 1 July 2009 (UTC)
Try clearing your cache. The tool is pure-js, as long as it's not broken it should be inserting the tab after the page loads. ~NOTASTAFF Daniel Friesen (DanTMan, Nadir Seen Fire) (talk) Jul 2, 2009 @ 00:41 (UTC)
Oh, sorry. Someone told me that the tab didn't show up in purge mode, so I added a check to also make purge mode work. However instead of an or I used an and making it "If action is edit mode and purge mode display tab" instead of "If action is edit mode or purge mode display tab". Obviously you can never be in edit mode and purge mode at the same time so the tab never displayed. I fixed it so just clean your cache. ~NOTASTAFF Daniel Friesen (DanTMan, Nadir Seen Fire) (talk) Jul 2, 2009 @ 02:08 (UTC)

*shifty eyes* /me resists temptation to point out he wrote it. ~NOTASTAFF Daniel Friesen (DanTMan, Nadir Seen Fire) (talk) Jul 2, 2009 @ 16:11 (UTC)
Haha...well i'm not suprised....-- AlienGamer--Talk-- 16:27, 2 July 2009 (UTC)
 ;) and there's a RedirectTool coming soon that'll let you batch create a pile of redirects to the current article you are on. I created 6 redirects to Sakumo Hatake in under a minute without leaving the article (ie: I was able to do copy relevant names to redirect from right from the article I was on). ~NOTASTAFF Daniel Friesen (DanTMan, Nadir Seen Fire) (talk) Jul 2, 2009 @ 16:57 (UTC)
