After three instances of Recent Changes flooding by Cook, I have thought up an idea to prevent such floods. It is very simple, any edits that will probably flood Recents will be moved to a bot-flagged account, if there is one. 222 talk 08:34, October 28, 2010 (UTC)

Changed to oppose - After thinking this through a bit more, it seems completely unnecessary. It puts a hassle on editors, and there always is that minor edit Wink ʞooɔ 08:54, October 28, 2010 (UTC)

Oppose - Really the only reason its flooding right now is because its so late at night. There's no intermediate edits even though they are in actuality quite spaced out. Furthermore there is no reasonable way that cook could use the AWB to perform this editing, and I refuse to ask that he, or any other editor, sign out of their account and sign into their bot account for this purpose. As long as they are marked as minor, which vandals can't really do, then its not too much of an issue. kitty.pngPsycho Robot talkSilver bar.png 08:37, October 28, 2010 (UTC)

I never asked him to use AWB to perform this, although I believe may be possible in this case. 222 talk 08:42, October 28, 2010 (UTC)

Comment - I may have mis-interpreted what you said, but what about the editors who have no bot account or an awb account, such as myself? Ruud10KRalph.png 08:38, October 28, 2010 (UTC)

Oppose - As Psycho said, as long as the edits are minor, they shouldn't be a problem. There is an option on the recent changes option to hide minor edits, so it can't cause inconvenience to the rc patrollers. Ruud10KRalph.png 08:45, October 28, 2010 (UTC)

Withdrawn - I forgot about minor edit... Wink 222 talk 08:58, October 28, 2010 (UTC)
