Add more Special pages to AWB list generation
Open, MediumPublic


When trying to create a list of pages in AWB, only some Special pages are valid but others which are not would be very helpful (I am specifically thinking of all of the Uncategorized pages). I would like to request that either all Special pages be added or at least the Uncategorized ones, so that I can go on AWB runs adding categories and clearing out Maintenance Reports.

@Koavf, I totally agree and although this is a duplicate request of the one I submitted about 2 years ago I hope you have more luck getting this than I did because this would indeed be very useful.

@Reguyla Seriously? I searched for a duplicate ticket... For now, I am copy and pasting, which works but that would work for other special pages as well. It would be handy to be able to skip that step.

@Koavf there are a couple tickets related under the make list column. But the one I submitted is T100457.
[Migrated] Add some options (MW querypages) to the Make list option.

Another option is to create SQL jobs. You can do those on Quarry here:

If you need help with the code let me know.

@Reguyla I am very ignorant when it comes to programming languages. I will poke around and see if I can come up with some solutions. Thanks, Kumioko.

You're welcome. If you need help let me know. I will have to create it for another wiki like commons due to my status on EnWP but I will explain what would be required to make it work for EnWP.
