    To Bot or Not To Bot

    February 4, 2018 by Neosteamwiki

    Hello Community,

    A bot is a software program that can make automated edits or help humans make semi-automatic edits. For example, a bot can help add categories to pages or correct spelling mistakes. As the number of pages in the wiki increases, a bot is becoming more and more necessary. Making edits on 25 pages is different from making edits on hundreds of pages.

    Wikia allows the use of bots as long as there is agreement from you, the community. Using a bot will help in cleaning up the wiki making the wiki easier to navigate and more useful. A bot requires a separate account so the bot edits can be hidden from so it is easier to keep track of human edits.
