... Hiding from chance encounters
− Accidentally

'Politis' is a pseudonym [citation needed]. I chose it because it comes from 'πολίτης' (citizen) and is semantically linked to 'polis' (city) and 'politics' (in its Aristotelian sense of, the philosophy of human affairs) [dubious ].

Please read the guidelines below before designing and implementing any bot on Wikipedia. Prior to use, bots must be approved at *Wikipedia:Bots/Requests for approval]]. State there precisely what the bot will do, observe and participate in the discussion, and await authorization from someone in the 'approvals group'. Wikipedia:AutoWikiBrowser/CheckPage
  • Wikipedia:What is a troll WP:NOFEEDING, Trolling refers to deliberate and intentional attempts to disrupt the usability of Wikipedia for its editors, administrators, developers, and other people who work to create content for and help run Wikipedia. Trolling is deliberate violation of the implicit rules of Internet social spaces. It necessarily involves a value judgement made by one user about the value of another's contribution. (Because of this it is considered not to be any more useful than the judgement 'I don't agree with you' by many users, who prefer to focus on behaviors instead of on presumed intent.) Trolling is not necessarily the same as vandalism (although vandalism may be used to troll).
  • User:VoABot II/Help How VoABot II works. VoABot II is a bot that monitors changes and automatically reverts spam/banned user's rejected edits, and certain vandalism that occurs in streaks. It does not check talk or other certain namespaces. Note that talk page support may be added in the future.
  • User:SuggestBot I am a Wikipedia bot belonging to ForteTuba. My job in life is to match people with pages they might like to contribute to based on their past contributions. I use a variety of algorithms, including standard information retrieval and collaborative filtering techniques, to make suggestions. I also sometimes point people to the Community Portal, or their past edits, as a source of inspiration.
  • Citizendium The stated aim of the project is to create a "new compendium of knowledge" based on the contributions of "intellectuals", defined as "educated, thinking people who read about science or ideas regularly."[6] Citizendium hopes to foster an expert culture and a community that encourages subject specialists (presently named as "editors") to contribute, and "citizens" (to be called "authors") to "respect" the expert contributions (by a so-called "gentle process of guidance").
  • Wikipedia:Requested moves: Requested moves is the place to request article moves that are not straightforward, or that require the assistance of Wikipedia administrators. Normally, logged-in users can do uncontroversial moves themselves using the [move] tab found at the top of every page (see Help:Moving a page). However, sometimes this does not work because the target is already occupied (usually in the form of a redirect with a page history). In other situations a move may be controversial and will require discussion to reach a consensus.
