::Well, maybe; I see that sort of "link" as a handy maintenance tool - http://genealogy.wikia.com/wiki/Special:Whatlinkshere/Unknown_%28%3F-%3F%29 - showing which pages need attention (because it often results from people simply not adding names they actually knew); can you show us where to find the ones you mean?

My only [http://wikistats.wikia.com/wikistats/EN/TablesWikiaGENEALOGY.htm "claims" to authority] here are that I've made more non-article edits than any other human active here and that I started here before any of the currently active contributors did.'')

::I'd really like to emphasize how easy it is to run bots, and that this can be an egalitarian thing. They are wildly powerful, but heck- so is a car and we manage not to maim 100s of people every day when we drive them. The only tough part is initially getting it set up. That can be a little wierd, but if you know some geek lad that can follow some instructions, I'll put the info up on some suitably obscure location (can you imagine what spammers would do with a bot?) so that if you guys get the notion to run one yourselves, that you can have it. I'm not trying to be modest. I can't fathom why some bot writers want to make it seem like they wrote a 'bot'. The guys that wrote these scripts deserve the credit- Daniel Herding and Andre Engels in particular have led the pywikipedia collaborative effort in a stellar manner.
