Rosetta Code:Village Pump/Automate Village Pump
This is a particular discussion thread among many which consider Rosetta Code.
Requesting a bot for managing the Village Pump
A bot needs to be created to organize and maintain the Village Pump, so that old topics drop to the bottom of the page and new and active topics rise to the top. (a la Digg or Reddit, but without up/downvoting.) MediaWiki has problems when pages get too large, so it needs to be able to handle archiving old discussions.
My current thought is that all VP topic pages get tagged with a category, so that the bot can easily find them. It would then find the ones that were most recently edited, and have those tasks appear in the VP page. --Short Circuit 05:48, 23 February 2009 (UTC)
