[edit] Bot Explanation

This bot is doing the proper uploads here when a new comic appears on xkcd. The Perl script can be found here: GitHub.

Any ideas for enhancements to this bot are welcome and should go here: User talk:DgbrtBOT.

[edit] When the BOT fails...

...please be patient or follow these instructions in the written order:

  • Add the proper entry here: List of all comics
  • Click the red link for the picture and do the upload.
  • Click the create link at the "List of all comics" for the comic page and use that template. Don't forget the incomplete tags for the explain and transcript sections.
  • Create the redirects for the comic number and comic name (like 1864 and City Nicknames - The content is just
#REDIRECT [[1864: City Nicknames]]).
  • Edit the Template:LATESTCOMIC. Increase the number but DO NOT change anything else or the bot will fail on the next comic.
  • Create the talk page and add this text:
