Bot This user account is a perlwikipedia-based bot operated by Ilmari Karonen (talk).

It is not a sock puppet, but rather an automated or semi-automated account for making repetitive edits that would be extremely tedious to do manually.
Administrators: if this bot is malfunctioning or causing harm, please block it.

This bot runs on the Wikimedia Toolserver, and edits once a week to update Commons:MIME type statistics (and its Unusual types subpage). The bot is written in Perl; the source code is available for review. It's quickly written and not very pretty, but it does the job.
