Hey guys! So cleaning up this wikia is going well, but there's certain tasks to do that are minor and repetitive and would a) just clog up the recent changes section and b) encourage human error. For example, category renaming, something that's not technically possible through the fandom interface and only achievable by removing all pages from one category and adding them to the new one. Other examples are standardising wording, capitalisation or spelling across the community, or updating template usage. The sorts of things computers are good at and humans aren't so much.
So. I'd like to make a bot account that can be used with AutoWikiBrowser and potentially Pybot too. It'd be available to all the wikia admins (and/or anyone deemed to be sufficiently reliable; we can discuss policy) to use to accomplish the sort of minor, repetitive tasks I mentioned above.
The bot user tag means that its edits are hidden by default in Recent Changes - they can be made visible with a single click if they need to be checked, but since they will almost always be monotonous, small changes to large numbers of articles, this will mean they don't clog up the list and hide edits made by human contributors.
The bot tag has to be added by Fandom support, and they require a link to a public discussion on the community requesting it. So here I am! Please let me know what you think in the replies!
Obviously, I'm thinking "Bas-Ket" for the bot's username. Or maybe something punny that makes it obvious that it's a bot, like "Bot-Ket".

Hi, I'm Galeking (on Deviantart.)
I have a piece of fanart that I would like to put up on here. I have told someone who helps run this wiki (Novanplz on Deviantart) about it, and they said: "Maake a page titled "fandom". You can add it there." The thing is, I don't really know how to do that and lay it out and make it into a proper page and all that.
Can I please have some help with this?
