I'm contacting you here to ask for help at User talk:Buidhe#Pageswap, as I know you're an experienced Pageswap user.

And maybe I'm barking up the wrong tree completely. But it seems to have been used to circumvent one of the history suppression controls.

Is that a good thing? Is this use of Pageswap documented anywhere? In fact, is anyone looking after Pageswap that you know about? (And if not maybe you might even volunteer?)

Hoping to hear from you. Andrewa (talk) 01:26, 4 December 2020 (UTC)

Hi Andrewa, good to hear from you. I've had a brief skim through the discussion over lunch and I'd be happy to look into it further and put in my two cents this evening. I have been looking into streamlining the process for closers but unfortunately my MediaWiki knowledge is a bit dusty, but I'd be happy to collaborate on a fork should that be needed. One improvement I've long wanted to implement but never got round to doing is automatic redirect correction, but I digress. I'll ping you into my response this evening. All the best, SITH (talk) 13:18, 4 December 2020 (UTC)
