Wikidata Bot


This user account is a bot with a bot flag. The bot is operated by pasleim  and MisterSynergy.
This bot runs on Wikimedia Toolforge.
Administrators: If this bot needs to be blocked due to a malfunction, please remember to disable autoblocks so that other WMF Toolforge bots are not affected.

DeltaBot aims to be a collaborative bot on Wikidata. It focusses on basic maintenance tasks so that users can focus on complex problems.

Due to the large amount of jobs configured for DeltaBot, the maintainers do not actively monitor the successful execution of individual jobs. If you are missing a specific update, please let us know via User talk:DeltaBot.
