Is it possible to use AWB (or a different bot program) to create pages based on a database, similar to a MS Word Mail-Merge? I'm working on some new car pages for Gran Turismo Wiki and I have a database of raw stats from the gran turismo games that I would like to know if I can "mail-merge" these new pages using a bot.

This is beyond the scope of AWB. You can possibly look into Pywikipediabot. Rappy 22:11, March 7, 2012 (UTC)
Thanks. Sorry I keep giving you work to do Rappy. I promise this one will be my last question for a while :) MTracey1 PSN/XBL: Mackem1985 {{SUBST:MTracey1Sig}} 22:13, March 7, 2012 (UTC)
Keep 'em comin'. I'm not an expert with PWB, but a few here are if you require more help. There is also an IRC channel you can go to to ask for help as well at this link. You'd need an IRC client to use that link though. If you don't have one, you can go to here and put #pywikipediabot for the channel and click connect. Rappy 22:17, March 7, 2012 (UTC)

(Reset indent) Update: I managed to get this working using AWB with this CSV Loader. Worked a treat and helped me create over 800 new pages in a matter of minutes. Now to fill in the blanks!!
