Software[edit]

active
CVNBot, SWBot, or SWMTBot is a C# bot developed by Tangotango and Az1568. It is designed for use in networked or multiwiki channels. Features include dynamic loading and unloading of wikis and channels, a central configuration file and database, global lists, auto-broadcast of global changes to all other SWBot instances, and detection of page blanking and replacement using automated MediaWiki summaries. However, per-channel event configuration is not possible.
obsolete
Computer was the original recent changes filtering bot written as a mIRC script, developed by とある白い猫. It was replaced by pgkbot in 2005.
pgkbot was an IRC recent changes bot developed by pgk in python, and was the primary such bot in use for several years. It was designed for use in one channel, and included a number of customization options such as plugin support, complex event routers, individual lists, individual user name and article title watchlists, detection of page move vandalism, and IP address categories (like open proxies). However, configuration is difficult, it is relatively resource-intensive, the package has not been maintained for several years; it is no longer widely used. Currently, only one bot on the network still runs pgkbot (MiszaBot), and the 20+ other bots now use SWMTBot.
CVNbot was a proposed unified bot written in Perl or Python by Pathoschild, intended to facilitate channel network administration and provide edit monitoring, without extraneous features. This bot was discontinued and its name assigned to SWBot.
