Today i started operating a bot called Syster.
The idea of the bot was to remove a category called Article. It works great, but it also made automatic changes like changing "May 3rd, 2011" to "May 3, 2011", or removing capital letters from the beggining of a second worn in a headline of sections on pages.

Is there a way to enable only the task i choose, without allowing automatic changes? (By the way, i'm using the program AutoWikiBrowser for this bot).

"Apply general fixes" in the Options tab may be what you're looking for; deselect it. I haven't personally seen date format changes, but then I disabled the automatic changes at the very beginning of my bot self-training and never enabled it after that. --Tulipclaymore (talk) 11:24, July 25, 2012 (UTC)
