Further Information

Any bugs, requests or other needs regarding this bot should be made to ToaMeiko.

This bot holds both bot and sysop user permissions. The reason it holds sysop rights is so that it can edit the MediaWiki namespace to place chat logs there. When the logs are held in the MediaWiki namespace, they can not be edited or modified in any way by non-sysop users, thus making them secure and more trustworthy.

For a list of chat bot commands, see #Documentation.

This bot creates logs based on the wiki's time zone (UTC), therefore logs will be placed on the default date and time that the wiki is set to.

The original chat bot source code for this bot was originally created by TheMachine.Wiki, and now runs on a client made by Sactage.

If this bot is malfunctioning and causing direct harm to the wiki, use the button below to shut it down. It is highly advised that instead of shutting it down yourself, you contact ToaMeiko about it. This bot should never be out of control, as it is directly monitored constantly, and does not perform any tasks that could potentially cause harm to the wiki.
