Function details: On ittf.com/ittf_ranking the world ranking of table tennis players is published every month. The bot will visit this website at the beginning of every month and then update the value of ranking (P1352) in items about table tennis players. Ma Long (Q459114) is an example where I did this update by hand. As there are only around 100 items about active table tennis players, this is rather a low-cost task. On ittf.com I couldn't find any terms which wouldn't allow to access their website by bot. --Pasleim (talk) 03:21, 23 June 2014 (UTC)
Could you please provide test edits?--Ymblanter (talk) 18:11, 1 July 2014 (UTC)
As soon as the July ranking is out, I will do a testrun. --Pasleim (talk) 18:26, 1 July 2014 (UTC)
Finally, the ranking is online and I did the testrun:  --Pasleim (talk) 02:05, 10 July 2014 (UTC)
Support but please make changes like this one as single edits. --Ricordisamoa 17:08, 17 July 2014 (UTC)
Support Only one question: when you say "update the value" you mean that replace old value with the new or you add new ranking every month? --ValterVB (talk) 17:58, 24 July 2014 (UTC)
If the ranking of the person changes, a new value with rank=preferred will be added and the old value will get the qualifier end time (P582) and rank=normal. If the ranking doesn't change, only the value of retrieved (P813) will be updated. --Pasleim (talk) 02:47, 25 July 2014 (UTC)
