Bots are programs that make automated edits - normally the repetitive, tedious sort that regular editors don't want to do.
There is currently no formal approval process for bots. However, your bot must have a separate account with a bot flag granted by a bureaucrat to write to WikiFur via the API. Attempts to make bot edits through the regular editing interface are likely to fail due to anti-spam provisions.
Remember, you are responsible for your bot's actions, whether or not they are run under a separate account.
Common bot accounts
