I would like to use this tool to update terminology on blinding across a large number of pages. Will it run on a chromebook? If not, I still want permission. I will just have to use a different computer. --Wikiman2718 (talk) 06:57, 14 July 2019 (UTC)
AWB does not run on chrome book, however the browser based WP:JWB does. You will still need AWB permissions to use JWB. -- Trialpears (talk) 13:46, 17 July 2019 (UTC)
AWB isn't designed to update information/terminology but rather gnome-like edits like stub-sorting. Can you provide examples of what you wish to update? Anarchyte (talk | work) 14:23, 17 July 2019 (UTC)
This is an example of the type of edit I would like to make. Recent guidelines have recommended a change of terminology, and I would like a tool to help me make such edits more efficiently. Almost 2000 pages use the outdated terminology. --Wikiman2718 (talk) 18:06, 17 July 2019 (UTC)
I have also found that a large number of articles link to peer review when they really mean to link to scholarly peer review. I think that AWB would help with this too? --Wikiman2718 (talk) 08:53, 19 July 2019 (UTC)


Hey there! I would like AWB access mainly for finding common typos and fixing them, however I may come up with other small maintenance tasks during use. Thanks in advance for your consideration! Bsoyka 22:23, 18 July 2019 (UTC)
