AutoRequest is a script that make user's routine request easier thanks to forms on forum.

Users fill a form that, on submit, return datas organized as you find it easier to deal with. Each time a request is done on the forum, you receive a notification.

You can see a demo of the script here : Demo

WARNING : The forum feature is required for that script. You can activated it on the page Special:WikiFeatures of your wiki.

Installation

Add this JavaScript on your wiki:

Site-wide
MediaWiki:Common.js
importArticles({
	type: 'script',
	articles: [
		'u:dev:Mediawiki:AutoRequest/code.js'
	]
});
importArticles — Best Practices for installing JavaScript on FANDOM
The importArticles statement is designed to combine multiple HTTP requests into a single data transfer, allowing multiple scripts to load and execute faster. If you've been installing several different scripts, your JavaScript file has probably accumulated unnecessary import statements. Click "Expand" to learn how to efficiently batch import scripts to speed up performance and make your code look cleaner. One other approach is by using the MediaWiki:ImportJS.
If your JavaScript file has several lines of code that say importScript, importScriptPage, or importArticles, you may be able to combine them! By batch importing a collection of scripts with a single import, your JavaScript code will load faster and look cleaner. Consider the example below. On the left is an example of what your JavaScript file might currently look like. On the right is how you could improve that code.
Multiple imports — messy and slow One import — clean and efficient
importScriptPage('AjaxRC/code.js','dev');
 
importScript('MediaWiki:localScript.js');
 
importArticle({
  type: 'script',
  article: 'u:dev:FloatingToc/code.js'
});
 
importScriptPage('page1.js', 'wikiname');
 
importScriptPage('page2.js', 'wikiname');
importArticles({
    type: 'script',
    articles: [
        'u:dev:AjaxRC/code.js',
        'MediaWiki:localScript.js',
        'u:dev:FloatingToc/code.js',
        'u:wikiname:page1.js',
        'u:wikiname:page2.js'
    ]
});
Note: In this example, pay close attention to the placement of commas and other punctuation. For people who aren't familiar with programming (and even those who are!), a common mistake when writing code is to accidentally delete, forget, or misplace critical symbols like commas or quotation marks. This can cause a syntax error that breaks the code. Carefully follow the convention shown here when using importArticles.
But there's much more to importArticles than just this! For more examples and advanced usage, see the help page at Help:Including additional JavaScript and CSS.


Forum : Once you are on the forum, create a thread with the title you want. Add instructions if you want, and then, add a div tag with the id you have choosen in the configuration. }}

Configuration

You can configure several request on different threads by adding the code below several times with different variable names.

To configure the AutoRequest, add the code below before the import statement in your Mediawiki:Common.js and replace the text in the bracket by your datas.

//Setup of the request
[name] = {
    id: '[id]',
    form: '[form]',
    outcode: '[outcode]'
};
formautorequest([name]);
