This page has not been reviewed by our documentation team (more info).

This page is about programs written by editors that automatically enter edits into the database, called "bots". You can see a list of bots on the Privileged User Accounts page (although they are not privileged compared to editor/auto-editor accounts).

If you want to start your own bot, create a new account with a name that shows other editors that a) it is a bot and b) you are running it (e.g. "YOUR-NICK_bot"). Be sure to carefully test your program on the test server, and to comply to the Code of Conduct for bots.

If you found a wrong bot edit and want to protect the entity from future wrong edits, make an entry in the appropriate blacklist.
