I recently got my bot flagged on Narutopedia.

Since there are several pages that still have US spellings, I was planing to use it to change the words to UK spelling. As you might be knowing, bot does not have any sort of spell-checker which would change all US spellings to UK ones. So we would have to change each word individually.

Can somebody help me with finding common words that need to be changed? Thanx. UltimateSupreme2212-3.pngUltimateSupreme2212-3talk.png 11:37, September 6, 2012 (UTC)

Dude, here. I saw this it should be "realised" ~IndxcvNovelist (talk | contribs | PR | RLS) 11:59, September 6, 2012 (UTC)


You could do the list which would take forever, or just look here. Most often that not, all of those should apply here.--Cerez365Hyūga Symbol(talk) 12:24, September 6, 2012 (UTC)

Are you serious? You mean I should find and replace all those words, when majority of them don't even exist? Instead I would prefer a list of US-spellings which are commonly used on this wiki. UltimateSupreme2212-3.pngUltimateSupreme2212-3talk.png 12:38, September 6, 2012 (UTC)
Just search some of the commonly made US-UK differences....like the -se and -ze thing. akz! ANBU Symbol 12:45, September 6, 2012 (UTC)
edit conflict: I was referring to doing it in a manner that Aditya akz cited, not find and replacing entire words.--Cerez365Hyūga Symbol(talk) 12:51, September 6, 2012 (UTC)
That would also change the words which have the same combination but don't need to be changed. UltimateSupreme2212-3.pngUltimateSupreme2212-3talk.png 12:56, September 6, 2012 (UTC)
Like Hiruzen, Kazekage, etc. UltimateSupreme2212-3.pngUltimateSupreme2212-3talk.png 13:17, September 6, 2012 (UTC)
You don't have to search "ze", instead search for words which end in "ze" like "realize", you'll find 70 such articles with "realize". It's a tough job, yet you should do it. akz! ANBU Symbol 14:27, September 6, 2012 (UTC)
How can I search for words ending with ze? You can imagine it to be like "Find and Replace" in MS Word. It would be better if we would make a list of such words. UltimateSupreme2212-3.pngUltimateSupreme2212-3talk.png 14:42, September 6, 2012 (UTC)

List

Could find just one page with that error. Corrected manually. UltimateSupreme2212-3.pngUltimateSupreme2212-3talk.png 14:51, September 8, 2012 (UTC)
  • synchronization should be synchronisation.
  • analyzer should be analyser.
  • defense should be defence.

Conclusion

This grammar blog is concluded because i did the same thing as well back then. Kunoichi101 (talk) 19:46, September 11, 2012 (UTC)Kunoichi101

So what happened then? ~IndxcvNovelist (talk | contribs | PR | RLS) 17:36, September 12, 2012 (UTC)
actually... to tell u a truth... decreased = deceased as my first mistake. =.= Kunoichi101 (talk) 21:32, September 12, 2012 (UTC)Kunoichi101

This is no more needed now. I figured out a way of doing it without requiring a list.UltimateSupreme2212-3.pngUltimateSupreme2212-3talk.png 10:24, September 17, 2012 (UTC)
