Usage and flagging of a bot
Hello The Long Dark Wiki users!
There have been several occasions where numerous automated edits have been made, such as when Category:Maps and her pages were moved to Category:Regions. There are also several changes that need to be done to many pages and files throughout the site. These edits are numerous and highly tedious, and they would normally flood the wiki activity and recent changes.
This is where a bot comes in. A bot can be used to make repetitive automated or semi-automated edits that would otherwise be too time-consuming for a human user. Furthermore, flagging a bot account with the bot user group would hide their edits from wiki activity and recent changes (their edits are still visible in page history).
I have an account, Botsworth, which could be used and flagged as a bot. Please reply below if you are in favour of or against Botsworth becoming this wiki's bot. Feel free to also add any comments or ask any questions that you may have.
