[Migrated] Provide "Move image" functionality
Open, Needs TriagePublic


AWB is probably the best tool already set up to handle this sorely needed ability. it already sits on a user's computer and can directly access the relevant pages and templates. the only problem i foresee is updating articles with the new name automatically would be unallowed for non-bot accounts (technically). @Zappernapper 17:58, 7 June 2009 (UTC)

MW doesn't support move image.

Well i figured that since AWB is running on the client side, it could work around MW's constraints. The image and info would be stored temporarily on the user's hard drive. of course maybe this is better handled by a script like twinkle or friendly.
