- See also m:Bot policy
Bots on Wikiquote do many of automatic tasks that would be hard or boring to do manually. For this reason, they are given a bot flag by a bureaucrat. This makes them able them to:
- Change pages without appearing in Special:Recentchanges. This prevents a flood of edits that do not need to be seen as a problem.
- Change semi-protected pages, so the bot is not stopped from doing its work.
