Ability for a user's accout to be temporarily be marked as a bot, also known as flood flag as means to stop flooding of standard RecentChanges logging.

  • Administrators have the ability to self-set the flag (on and off)
  • Bureaucrats have the ability to set the flag on all users (on and off)

Usage[edit]

The setting of this right is only to be a temporary measure, for the shortest reasonable time, and to be used only for non-controversial edits. The sole purpose is to lessen the visual impact of flooding the edits in the standard setting of Recent Changes log, so that patrolling of Recent Changes can be maintained more readily.
