I've created an account, DWbot, for use with the PyWikipediaBot I've downloaded. I need to tweak some settings on the bot to make it work with Fax's Wiki, but thereafter it can do stuff. I'll be happy to take requests.

Currently can't do anything because api.php seems to be forboden. I'll have to fix that.

Fixed! It blends!

I'm too lazy to look through documentation. What can it do?

I've mostly used it for mass production of pages from a single file and for RegEx search & replace across many pages (pages in a category, pages whose titles meet certain criteria, pages linked to from another page, etc.). It can also do a lot of clean-up activity (fixing double redirects, converting HTML markup to Wiki markup, etc.). There's also a Welcome script that probably allows for the addition of a standardized welcome message on people's Talk pages the first time they make an edit. There's more, but those are the functions I'm familiar with.
