Bot This user account is a bot operated by Rillke (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.

I do not think we need a bot for adding Category:Uploaded with UploadWizard to files as in here. --Jarekt (talk) 10:22, 31 July 2013 (UTC)
As long as they use it for the statistics, I think we should not unnecessarily torpedo their efforts. But if this is considered being a big issue by the community, I can turn this functionality off. -- Rillke(q?) 15:04, 31 July 2013 (UTC)
  • It's ridiculous. If you come here, someone else does it before, if you don't you are reported to COM:AN. I will simply start the bot now, please block it without autoblock if it causes serious trouble. -- Rillke(q?) 08:44, 31 July 2013 (UTC)

If there are no objections, I think bot status should be granted. --EugeneZelenko (talk) 14:38, 31 July 2013 (UTC)

Removal of broken redirects

Q: Why did you remove the redirect from my userpage?
A: Because interwiki redirects do not work and they clutter our list of broken redirects and making our scripts creating pages on commons like "commons/w:de:User:Y". However, if you do not agree with the template left by the script, you can use {{SOFTREDIRECT}} which looks similar to a real redirect.

I also run scripts under this account. They run attended and in Browser. So it's per defintion not a bot and do not need such a flag.

Created for future puroposes. IF THERE ARE accidentally VOTES CASTED WITH THIS ACCOUNT, THEY ARE INVALID. REMOVE THEM. -- RillkeBot (talk) 16:47, 25 May 2011 (UTC) Confirmation: RE rillke questions? 16:49, 25 May 2011 (UTC)
