Creating a bot[edit]

This section will tell you briefly about creating a bot on Brickipedia. These are the following steps you will have to take:

  1. Plan a task your bot will preform
  2. Find a tool or write your framework
  3. Write a proposal for the Bot Approval Group, and wait for it to be reviewed.
  4. If your proposal is given the test status, slowly preform a slow amount of edits using your bot to demonstrate its tasks
  5. Go back to Bot Approval request and give feedback on your test run
  6. Your Bot approval will then be voted on and given by the BAG. Your bot then will be given a bot flag if it passes and you are free to run the tasks approved.
