This user account is a bot operated by Mike Peel (talk). It is not a sock puppet, but rather an automated or semi-automated account for making repetitive edits that would be extremely tedious to do manually. Administrators: if this bot is malfunctioning or causing harm, please block it.
The bot runs on a Raspberry Pi 4B 8GB like this one.
The hardware that this bot runs on was provided by Wikimedia UK [1].
This bot account is run by User:Mike Peel. It normally runs on a Raspberry Pi, hence the name!
It mostly edits Commons and Wikidata, but also the English, French and Simple Wikipedias, and Meta. It has made over 6 million edits so far.
It started operation in February 2017, and originally ran on a Raspberry Pi 3B. It was upgraded to a Raspberry Pi 4B 8GB in 2020 thanks to funding from Wikimedia UK.
