Start bot timer upon making edit rather than upon finding a page that needs an edit
Open, MediumPublicBUG REPORT


When using AWB for a fully-automated bot task, the bot timer causes the program to hold for a specified period of time upon finding a page that needs an edit. It would be ideal for the bot timer to start when an edit was made instead. This would prevent the bot from "slowing down" if it either hits a large group of pages that are skipped or remains open on the botop's computer for a long time (which, at least for me, causes the processing time for pages to increase significantly).
