I made this thread for two reasons. A) to warn people to not make frivolous edits that can be made with a machine and more importantly B) to show off so. First order of business. Don't waste time making edits like e -> é; we can do that automatically. Second order of business. I just made a bot that shows you the differences on the command prompt of mass edits and asks you if you want to make the changes.

That's a shame, but it's fun to use on favorites teams and the like.</p> ? ^^^ Apply edit (y/n)? for those who arent coding literate, i made a bot that replaces every instance of "cool" with "gay" with the edit reason "shit". the revision editor bot goes through every current revision and shows me all the changes it would make and then asks me if i want to do them. thats fucking cool. im awesome.
