Would it be possible to set up a bot that would copy every article of the White Dwarf from the 40k Lexicanum into the Fantasy Lexicanum that is missing? It would considerably ease up the workload and make it easier to properly work on other stuff.

I have no problems with that - but I have no idea how to do that.

Is that something one of the current 40K admins can do? or does it need IT guys?

I don't know. I've seen people doing it in other wikis, but never in the Lexi. I tried checking https://www.mediawiki.org/wiki/Manual:Creating_a_bot but this is not really my area of expertise.

Doing it manually should not be an option really.

Actually I figured out I can just export the entirety of the Magazine category from one wiki to the other. I will do so at a later time, when the White Dwarfs in the 40k side are a little more complete.
