Description Julian 2008-03-20 22:22:46 UTC
Hello. In the Spanish Wikinews community, we've found quite useful the idea - that has already been discussed [] - of letting bots edit fully protected pages. According to Huji, it's fairly simple to do this. See the previous link.

Since we have to archive after 7 days of publication, most bots turn to be useless without being granted sysop access. Because of this, we'd like the group "bot" to be able to edit protected pages. The community's consent can be found here: Thanks in advance.
