Research:Daily unique bot editors
Identifying bot accounts edit
Bot accounts are identified using the bot flag strategy. This allows for straightforward and efficient bot detection, but it is also possible that some unflagged bots will not be counted.
Time lag edit
As this is a daily metric, a full 24 hours must elapse after the beginning of the date (UTC) in order to calculate an uncensored value.
Edits on deleted pages edit
This metric includes edits on existing pages as well as pages that have been or will later be deleted. This allows us to define a metric as stateless, in other words historical values will not change in the future depending on the status of a page (existing/deleted/moved) at the time the metric is computed. Deletion-related activity is tracked via a separate set of metrics.
