With the development of the technology, bots are applied in our daily life. Likewise, they are increasingly popular in the world of the net games.


As same as the robots in the real world, Runescape bot is a computer program that automates certain tasks, which in this case is editing this wiki. Unlike bots that perform tasks in RuneScape, bots here are allowed and encouraged. However, given that there is a potential for bots to malfunction or vandalise, the community must carefully regulate their operation to prevent them from damaging the wiki.




It is no doubt that there are many tasks that bots can perform more efficiently and with less work than humans. Examples include correcting American spelling of words to British and tagging pages with maintenance templates. However, human editors will always be needed, as bots aren't capable of adding content to the wiki. They are just a tool for performing repetitive tasks with less work involved.


When it comes to the process of creating a bot, it should usually begin with an idea for a bot being discussed by the community. These discussions are often held with another user privately, for feedback and suggestions. If the general consensus is that it would be useful for the bot to perform the discussed tasks, then the prospective bot operator should write a detailed specification.
