A bot (short for software robot) is an automated software program used to perform certain repetitive tasks on a wiki. Bots typically require approval to operate, and are occasionally used by vandals to cause extensive damage to a wiki's content in a short period of time.

Special:ListUsers/bot produces a list of all accounts which are member of the “بوٽس” user group . Additionally, “بوٽ” is a user right. Edits by a user with this “right” (read: property) do not show up in recent changes by default. Typically, a user from the group “بوٽس” will have the “بوٽ” user right. User rights are often called “flags” and bots with user right “بوٽ” are often called “flagged” bots.
