Bots are "users" that can do certain things far more efficiently than humans, typically edits of the form "move all pages from category X to category Y" or "change this template's parameter from Q to R in all uses". The wiki's resident bot is known as PyRikiBot.

Bot rights[edit]

Bot accounts:

  • Don't show up in RecentChanges by default
  • Are autoconfirmed even if they normally wouldn't be
  • Patrol themselves
  • Can move pages without leaving redirects behind
  • Can edit user talk pages without triggering the "you have new messages" notice
  • Have higher rate limits when they use the API
