Global contributions

I am "User:Doug" on all Wikimedia projects. 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, a transwiki importer on the multilingual wikisource, a transwiki importer and editor on, 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.

Outside of the Wikisource projects, where I work on content, my primary work is maintenance of documentation and project pages, particularly those dealing with bots.


I run two bots:

  • DougBot, which runs on all of the above projects except the english wikipedia, 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.
