Editing bots

This project is intended to allow users to request bot edits for highly repetitive editing tasks.

Within the context of wikis, a editing bot is an automated software which is generally used to perform repetitive editing tasks. Since a bot is capable of making a huge number of changes in a short period of time, their changes are not shown on the default Recent Changes page. To see bot edits, activate "show bot edits" on the special page.

If a bot is making inaccurate or inappropriate edits, leave a message on its talk page to shut down the bot and read the bot's user page for additional instructions.

Yes Done. 1680 pages edited. I also took the opportunity to cleanup some of the wikicode on each page (removal of hanging whitespace, blank parameters, heading spacing, etc). -Chieftain Alex 21:20, 7 November 2019 (UTC)
