What the Bot Does[edit]

ReferenceBot finds edits from the previous day that cause referencing errors, and notifies the editors requesting that they fix them. ReferenceBot does not fix any errors.

If it has to create a talk page for the user, it will {{welcome}} them.

ReferenceBot notifies editors about edits that add articles to the following categories:


The current templates used are {{User:ReferenceBot/inform/top}}, {{User:ReferenceBot/inform/middle}} and {{User:ReferenceBot/inform/bottom}}.
