Bots are automated or semi-automated tools that carry out repetitive and mundane tasks in order to maintain the 17,144 articles of the English Tractor Wiki. Bots are able to make edits very rapidly and can disrupt the Wiki if they are incorrectly designed or operated. For these reasons a bot policy has been developed.

There are currently 0 bot tasks approved for use on the English Tractor Wiki; however, they are not all actively carrying out edits. Bots will leave messages on user talk pages if the action the bot has carried out is of interest to that editor. Some bots can be excluded from leaving these messages by using the {{bots}} tags. Exclusion-compliant bots are listed at Category:Tractor Wiki bots which are exclusion compliant. There are exactly 4 bots flagged with the "bot" flag right now. There is also a range of tools that allow for semi-automated editing of large numbers of articles.

History of Wiki botsEdit

Main article: Tractor & Construction Plant Wiki:History of Wiki bots

Bots have been used in the past to create large numbers of articles that were uploaded to Wikipedia within a short timeframe. But some technical problems were experienced and this led to the formulation of a bot policy on wikipedia, and why we currently dont auto create articles on Tractor Wiki.

Bot policyEdit

Main article: Tractor & Construction Plant Wiki:Bot policy

Wiki policy states the bots must be harmless and useful, have approval, use separate user accounts, and be operated responsibly.

{{Ambox|text=no bots are currently approved for tractor wiki. (But host Wikia.inc can operate bots centrally to clean up spam and other housekeeping tasks on Tractor wiki and any other Wikia Wiki site)
