User:Testbot

From OBA Wiki
Jump to: navigation, search

This user runs various "bot" actions which are used to tidy or automatically construct items in the wiki. The actions currently used are:

  • Deletion of fake user accounts. These are recognised as unregistered (no confirmed email address), which may be deleted after one month, or unused (confirmed email address but no contributions or user page content) which may be deleted after three months
  • Automatic creation of "See Also" sections in articles based on wikilinks in the current article or other articles. Some types of articles do not get a "see Also" section or are omitted from the "See Also" sections of other articles
  • Creating stub articles for BGS staff members: people listed in Boston Grammar School Staff but without their own page

Other bot actions may be developed in the future.
