This is a pywikipedia script, developed to support maintenance of this site.
I want to thank a mysterious user (Special:Contributions/22.214.171.124) for finding some bad auto-wiki'd text. This is a modified version of changelink.py to replace one wiki string with an alternate string that is NOT wiki.
Originally, the MoinMoin wiki site used camel case linking notation. A script used to kick-off the migration to mediawiki replaced many of those links automatically, by splitting camel case words and wrapping them with square brackets. Certain words, which were not links, got dragged along. The result is that many of the Special:Wantedpages entries aren't really "wanted" at all. Reverting them back to their original notation with the linking notation removed helps lower the pages actually wanted.
How to run it
To run the script, it needs two arguments. (Use quotation marks to escape the shell).
% python badwiki.py "Foo Bar" "FooBar"
It will find every article pointed at Foo Bar, substitue FooBar without wiki tags, and then write it as a minor edit. This also helps reduce the number of Special:Wantedpages.
