I have a few questions about bots. I'd like to be able to have a bot automatically run tasks based on a script. Here's what I'd like the bot to be able to do:
- Automatically mark pages less than 300 bytes with the
- Add a category called "Further categorization required" to pages with no categories, allowing for the category to then be dumped into AWB easily
- The task AWB would then run would replace that category with a category suited for the page, which could be easily done by hand with AWB
- Lastly, make it so that the bot removes the category "Further categorization required" from any page that has any other category on it.
Of all of these, the most important is probably the second one. The third one is actually not really necessary as I could just remove the category while changing it with. I'd also like the first one but this is less of a priority than the second.
Also, I'd like there to be a limit on the bot so that it makes no more than 20 edits a minute and switches from task to task every 4 hours (so that it only works on one task and once and after a certain amount of time switches to a new task)
I'd code these myself but really I have no idea where to even start. I understand if this can't be done, it's just a pain to do it manually, or even semi-manually.
