I am DeirdreAnne on all Wikimedia projects, toolserver-wiki, Wikilivres, and Botwiki.

I am an editor and administrator, as well as the operator of DougBot on this project. My primary work involves maintenance of documentation and project pages, particularly those dealing with bots.

In addition to my activities on this project, I am a grapheocrates (bureaucrat) and măgistrātus (administrator) on the latin wikisource, an administrator on the english wikisource and the english wikipedia, an admin and (xml) importer on the multilingual wikisource, and a file mover on commons. Outside of WMF project, I am also an administrator on wikilivres (a non-WMF wikisource auxiliary project). I am also a developer and bureaucrat on botwiki and a system administrator for a private/test installation of the mediawiki software.


I run two bots:

  • DougBot, which runs on all of the above projects except the english wikipedia and toolserver-wiki, and
  • InterwikiBot, which performs interlanguage linking on all wikisources, though it has been largely supplanted by Candalua's more general purpose, and better, CandalBot. Both of my bots run on the Pywikipediabot framework.

To Do[edit]

  • Migrate/flesh out import documentation
