|This user account is a bot operated by CBM (talk) and Ruhrfisch (talk). It is a legitimate alternative account, used to make repetitive automated or semi-automated edits that would be extremely tedious to do manually. The bot is approved and currently active – the relevant request for approval can be seen here.
Administrators: if this bot is malfunctioning or causing harm, please block it.
This account is named in honor of Oswald Veblen.
For the time being, VeblenBot is editing from the mw:Wikimedia Labs server, so if it is blocked then autoblock must be disabled.
As of January 2017, the bot has not edited since November 2016, and is likely inactive.
