In forum #31811, discussion turned to various tasks (most related to specific search queries), it would be great if we could try to put a dent in. I also brought up the idea of putting these ideas into a "How to help" wiki for people's reference, akin to Wikipedia's 'Help out' task lists .
I've created this thread so we can brainstrom ideas for tasks, and discuss how best to structure such a page.
Log said: I'm subscribed to the rss for this and jhx is dmailing the offenders so it's probably for the best that I'm the only one handling this for the time being.
Yeah, while it's nice for others to fix these URLs as they see them, doing so means the person who put the wrong URL isn't being notified about it, and they'll continue to do it until someone alerts them. Just letting Log's script fix them and then me dmailing them is likely to fix the situation more permanently. And it seems to work fairly well, as most people on the list are *not* repeat offenders.

Probably. Log's script can do it, so I'm sure albert can code something similar up.
The benefit to the current strategy, though, is that it lets me warn people who upload URLs that *can't* be automatically fixed, such as linking to the member profile or something. Though of course notifying people can be done automatically too I guess. ::shrug::
Just started trying to help. I am trying to work through artist_request and source_request. Some images I found already have the artist and title/source tag. Should I remove those request tags then? What is considered 'finished' so I can remove them? Finding artist website? Posting the Getchu page?
Kayako said: I could use some help, specifically at the moment I'm digging out original characters missing the original tag.
I've been doing this some as well on other people's Pixiv uploads.
I'm a little fuzzy on how it should be tagged in regards to artists drawing other artist's nameless, one-off original characters, because that happens a lot on Pixiv. Opinions on if you'd all still tag that original even if it's someone else's original character?
I'm down with that, you could start with the source:*www.pixiv.net* arttags:0 images, everything before and including that Macross F image should be a bad source. (If it's not feel free to fix it I don't bother marking down people who correct old images as it's next to impossible to figure out who changed the source.)
