Bot This user account is a bot operated by Guandalug (talk).

It is not a sock puppet, but rather an automated or semi-automated account for making repetitive edits that would be extremely tedious to do manually.
Administrators: if this bot is malfunctioning or causing harm, please block it.

On Commons, this bot only makes sure images used on the de-wikipedia mainpage are vandalism-protected using a combination of cascade-protected page with date-depending include, and a gallery created 'just in time' on the include coming up for the day.

This bot will run and edit once a day, at around 00:02 german time (CET), automatically and unsupervised. It's planned to keep the bot running for as long as there's no "project-spanning cascade protection".

The bot task has been accepted by the community, see Commons:Bots/Requests/LinkFA-Bot
