A bot is an automated piece of software which uses a separate account and performs trivial tasks on a wiki.

The Sims Wiki does not employ any automatic bots, but we have users with bot accounts. These bot accounts utilize bot software to perform tasks, but only when directed by a human to do so. Bots cannot autonomously edit or perform tasks.

In addition, Wikia, the website The Sims Wiki is built on, runs a number of bots on all wikis. These bots usually run autonomously or by command from a Wikia Staff member. The Sims Wiki typically has no control over these bots.
