This bot is currently approved to undertake one task:

  1. Mass tagging of templates being nominated for TFD and MFD
    • This bot account is used to run the masstag script, which applies a given tag en masse to a given set of pages. The approval extends solely to the following cases:
      • Tagging with the {{tfd}} tag for mass TFD nominations;
      • Tagging with the {{mfd}} tag for userboxes in the Template namespace which are involved in mass MFD nominations;
      • Removing the {{tfd}} or {{mfd}} tags on templates which are being kept after a TFD or MFD discussion;
      • Adding {{tfd end}} on the talk pages of templates which are being kept after a TFD discussion.
    • Hence, the bot will only edit in the Template and Template talk namespaces.
    • A function overview with more detail is available at the BRFA for this bot.
    • Considering a mass TFD, but turned off by the prospect of tagging? Help is at hand!
      If you are planning to make a mass deletion nomination, you can harness the functionality of this bot by asking at This, that and the other's talk page.
