Add a MediaWiki SignBot
Open, Stalled, NormalPublic

Description

We should setup a bot to automatically sign unsigned posts on wikis that want it. This seems like it could be useful on metawiki for example. I will use https://github.com/Pix1234/mh-signbot which is the code for the bot that runs on Wikimedia Commons. It uses pywikibot.

We had looked at this a couple years ago and looked at running it on toolforge, but abandoned the idea due to not really being with the toolforge terms of use.

  • Setup and get it working on botswiki
  • Bot request on metawiki
