Hello everyone! If you have read my earlier blog, "Big Changes Coming For This Wiki", then you know that I said a bot would possibly be coming to the wiki.
Well, that has come true!
The new bot will be User:WMWBot, and it will be used to do maintenance on this wiki. I mainly made this blog because consensus from the community (that means all of you users) is required for a bot flag.
This bot will be helpful for maintenance needed on the wiki, since it can make automated edits. This can be useful for instances where a large amount of edits need to be done on pages, such as searching for a group of misspellings and correcting them.
Now, some of you may think, "Isn't making another account sockpuppeting?" Well, bot accounts are an exception to the sockpuppeting rule. Sockpuppeting is only if the second account is being used by just a person. If a bot program is being used for the account in addition, then it is counted as a bot, not a sockpuppet account.
So now that I've showed you all the details, what do you think about the bot? Do you like it, or hate it? Do you think it should be officially flagged as a bot? Post your opinions and thoughts on this in the comments below. :)
If you want to learn more about bots and what they do, look at the Help:Bots page.
Thank you, and have a great day! :)
The bot has been flagged, so this blog is now closed. Thank you! :)
