A bot is a automated software program used to perform certain repetitive tasks on a wiki. Bots typically require approval to operate, and are occasionally used by vandals to cause extensive damage to a wiki's content in a short period of time.
MediaWiki
.org wiki has a page about this at:
Help:Bots
Special:ListUsers/bot produces a list of all accounts which are member of the “Bots” user group. Additionally, “bot” is a user right. Edits by a user with this “right” (read: property) do not show up in recent changes by default. Typically a user from the group “Bots” will have the “bot” user right. User rights are often called “flags” and bots with user right “bot” are often called “flagged” bots.
