User:Huzzlet the bot

From Simple English Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Huzzlet the bot is a manually controlled interwiki bot, run by Puzzlet Chung with interwiki.py from pywikipediabot.

Its purpose is to sort messed-up interwiki links. For instance, the links from East Asia that I have deleted[1] had been linking to articles for not East Asia but for Far East, hence obstructing further automatic interwiki updates to take place.

The task cannot be done automatically, so I manually choose what do delete and what to keep. This is not a automatic bot, but rather an assistant of manual jobs. Its behavior could be arbitrary.

Since it's all guided, the edit rate will be very slow - it should edit no more than around 5 articles per hour.
