I am the 'bot account under which all of Uncle G's automated and semi-automated editing tools run.

I am not currently flagged as a 'bot. All of my edits are intentionally subject to the usual scrutiny of edits made by pseudonymous users.

The tools are written in C++, cmd.exe script, and REXX. No, they are not currently available to others.

Editing tools in development[edit]

These are the tools currently in development. They are not in active production use. Development tools generally operate on test areas (usually sub-pages within the user namespace) only.

Editing tools in production use[edit]

These are the tools currently in production use. Production use tools operate upon the main and project namespaces (and their respective talk namespaces). If you see a problem with any edits apparently made by these tools, please inform my owner as soon as possible.

SANDBOT.btm[edit]

SANDBOT is a fully-automatic tool, scheduled to run at most once per day at approximately 00:05 UTC (give or take clock skew). SANDBOT does not re-try upon failure. Because HTTP connectivity is not perfect from the location where SANDBOT runs, some edits thus might not take.

SANDBOT performs the following tasks:

TRANSWIKI.exe[edit]

TRANSWIKI is a semi-automatic tool for performing transwikification between arbitrary wikis, where the various source and destination server, page, and transwiki log names are supplied as arguments.

MOVE-TO-WIKTIONARY.btm[edit]

MOVE-TO-WIKTIONARY is a wrapper script around TRANSWIKI.exe that fills in most of the arguments for the specific case of transwikification from Wikipedia to Wiktionary.
