A wiki bot used for various maintenance tasks, alongside ValExtLinks which checks external links. ValBot runs on the Pywikibot framework and is currently managed by Iritscen.


ValBot can perform analysis and mass-editing tasks such as the ones listed below. Scripts and instructions for running these tasks can be found HERE.

  • Running through a list of problematic links and upgrading them from http:// to https:// or adding an ending slash, etc.
  • "Renaming" a category by moving all the images to a new category.
  • Batch-uploading of images.
  • Finding externally-hosted images.
  • Testing interwiki links, including section links (interwiki links cannot be seen by ValExtLinks).
  • Testing section links found in intrawiki links (MediaWiki cannot recognize bad section links).
