glossary: functionality CydeBot

Functionality of CydeBot:

User:Cyde: “Cydebot is a mechanism that allows other administrators (and only other administrators) to direct a bot to take actions (such as renaming, deleting, merging, etc.) on categories as a result of the Categories for discussion process by simply editing a page on-wiki rather than having to have all of the know-how to run a bot. Cydebot makes no decisions on its own: everything it does is a result of other administrators having given it instructions. In my opinion, Cydebot is probably the least controversial type of admin bot possible. —Cyde Weys 20:05, 23 September 2008 (UTC)”(On: Wikipedia:Bots/Request for approvla/Cydebot 4).
