"temporary server problem" is strange indeed, but i bet it is "you're sending a POST request when the server expect a GET request". Divinity76 (talk) 12:43, 12 March 2013 (UTC)

Does my bot need a bot user agent?

I'm working on an irc bot. I want to make it have a command !wikipedia <something>. The command will print the first 300 or so letters of the wikipedia article on <something>. As it will just read data from pages, do I need a bot user agent? Thanks. 02:36, 28 March 2013 (UTC)

Ok, thanks. It has a bot user agent now :) 03:55, 4 April 2013 (UTC)
