What does this do?[edit | edit source]

  • This account updates the high scores page for the clan once a week, on Sunday at 00:00 UTC, via a cron job on Unix.
  • After a discussion, this account continuously monitors Special:RecentChanges and edits pages containing glitches left by Wikia's Visual Editor, after a delay in order to allow counter-vandalism. Glitches fixed by this bot are as follows:
    • Random {C, C} and {C} in articles, except in nowiki, pre, source and math tags, among others.
    • Full URL links to articles on the wiki itself.
    • <span> tags declaring black as their text colour explicitly, or a line-height of 20px, or both.
    • Duplicate categories at the end of articles.
    • Contiguous links pointing towards the same page. For example, [[God Wars Dungeon|God Wars Dungeo]][[God Wars Dungeon|n]].
    • Wikilinks whose text ends with a space. For example, [[God Wars Dungeon|God Wars Dungeon ]]. This is a glitch when editing a page having the shorter link, [[God Wars Dungeon]]. This rule started to exist on 18 November 2012.
