Pi botJoined 11 July 2017 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 
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.
