Reason for requesting autowikibrowser rights: Looking for AWB access to help change ref urls to the new shorter version to avoid dead links. ScienceAdvisor (talk) 05:18, 17 January 2023 (UTC)

ScienceAdvisor, could you give an example or two of what you mean? (please do not ping on reply) Primefac (talk) 13:41, 23 January 2023 (UTC)
I was working on fixing a company's url links after they moved to a shorter domain but, 1) I found some helped me accomplish the feat much quicker than I thought, and 2) I work off a mac so this might not be viable for me anyway. There were about 2,000 links that needed to be fixed but they are all fixed now.. ScienceAdvisor (talk) 19:33, 25 January 2023 (UTC)
  Not done for now. Thanks for the explanation, if you do find yourself wanting/needing this in the future (for something more than just a single URLREQ) you are of course welcome to re-apply (though the Mac thing could be an issue...). Primefac (talk) 08:42, 26 January 2023 (UTC)
