It's come to my attention that wiki bots operated by our administrators are showing up. I already knew about Morff's bot, but just now I discovered the existence of one run by DarkFuture.

For future reference, I'd like to know how one makes these bot accounts. One day, I might need one myself.--Akamia(Talk)(Want to see what I've been doing?) 08:00, June 2, 2012 (UTC)

Wait why would you need one? SonicRunPeaceYo It's WillacaPacbro Talk If You Dare!Ac2 08:02, June 2, 2012 (UTC)

Admittedly, this is probably coming from my failed attempt at running a wiki myself. Shadow Spy Net, which was intended to become all about Shadow and information on things around him. One of these days, I want to revive that wiki, but I realize that it's gonna need a huge clean up. A bot might be able to help with that.

However, I'm strongly considering just letting Shadow Spy Net die. For a long time, I have realized how redundant it feels to this very wiki. It would actually be fairly pointless to revive that wiki. So this bot would serve the purpose of allowing me to do very time-consuming tasks in less time.--Akamia(Talk)(Want to see what I've been doing?) 08:04, June 2, 2012 (UTC)

So Bot's get rid of time-consuming task. And hard work? SonicRunPeaceYo It's WillacaPacbro Talk If You Dare!Ac2 08:30, June 2, 2012 (UTC)

There are some things that Bots just can't cover. Such things are my definition of "hard work", if they happen to be difficult. That stuff I take care of personally.--Akamia(Talk)(Want to see what I've been doing?) 08:32, June 2, 2012 (UTC)

Hmm okay. I might need one for ACSFW. SonicRunPeaceYo It's WillacaPacbro Talk If You Dare!Ac2 08:46, June 2, 2012 (UTC)

Well, we'll still need one experienced in this field to explain the process. Heh.--Akamia(Talk)(Want to see what I've been doing?) 08:51, June 2, 2012 (UTC)

Heh. Yeah. SonicRunPeaceYo It's WillacaPacbro Talk If You Dare!Ac2 08:52, June 2, 2012 (UTC)

The easiest one to use is AutoWikiBrowser. -- Supermorff (talk) 09:03, June 2, 2012 (UTC)

Hmm sounds simple.SonicRunPeaceYo It's WillacaPacbro Talk If You Dare!Ac2 09:13, June 2, 2012 (UTC)

Indeed. Thanks, Morff!--Akamia(Talk)(Want to see what I've been doing?) 09:22, June 2, 2012 (UTC)
