At your service! MusikBot is an Apache helicopter, armed with a 30mm M230 chain gun and an endless supply of missiles and rockets. She does not care if you like doing things the hard way. She forces you to not worry about repetitive tasks and focus on improving Wikipedia in ways that a helicopter can't.


MusikBot is one of the few (if only) bots on the English Wikipedia written entirely in Ruby, using a fork of the MediaWiki::Gateway framework. The source code is hosted on GitHub. The bot lives on Wikimedia Toolforge where its tasks are booted up via a cronjob.

Bugs/feature requests?

MusikBot has no bugs. You can dispute this at User talk:MusikAnimal. Feel free to request new features for its approved tasks. In the event of a supposed malfunction, MusikBot will obey your orders to terminate a task, and respect any changes in its on-wiki config files. Please do not block the bot.
