There is a standard block of text that is added to all articles at AFC. Articles that are accepted and moved to the main article space retain it. It would be useful for AFC and new article editors to have AWB automatically find and remove the following comment: This will add a notice to the bottom of the page and won't blank it! The new template which says that your draft is waiting for a review will appear at the bottom; simply ignore the old (grey) drafted templates and the old (red) decline templates. A bot will update your article submission. Until then, please don't change anything in this text box and press "Save page".

I second this request. I do see this alot. I also see the text repeated two or three times in an article.

What template does this text come from so we can monitor the template for changes to the wording (or consider loading the text wording via API)?

Actually I'd !vote for a separate page where a list of unwanted comments can be maintained. Then when someone comes along later to ask for the automatic removal of some other comment, it can be done without modifying the software again.
