Hi! I have been thinking of running a bot on another Wikia I am part of, (It will mostly be to fix links) and I was wondering what steps you took with yours? It's all new to me, and I have looked at the community Wikia about how to get one, but some responses are a little confusing. xD
So a "bot" is just an account with a bot "flag" on it. And all a bot flag does is remove that account's edits from the Recent Activity feed.
Unless the process has changed, you need to have a community consensus to give your account a bot flag on the Wikia you want to use it on. Just explain what you'd be using the bot for. And You have to do that for every Wikia you want to use it on.
I also use an automater to make editing with my bot account easier, especially for things like replacing links or phrases.
Ah, thank you! I did manage to find the help page on the community Wikia, and one of the notes they have added is "Your request should include a link to a public discussion on your community or explicit permission from a bureaucrat." I am a bureaucrat on the Wikia I would like to use it, but I'm not sure if that circumvents around the community consensus. I'll send a message to Wikia, just in case. Once again, thank you for the help!! :-)
Hi I'm new to this wiki and I want to help by editing some pages. You might have seen that some text in the history of characters appear black and some appear blue and when I click the blue text I go to another page. Could you be as kind as to show me the steps in how to write that blue text down. Thank you very much.
