Ability to turn off the botflag
Open, Needs TriagePublic

Description

It would be helpful if there was a checkbox to tun off the bot-flag while using all other features. This is sometimes needed. The "bot" boolean may be relevant.

For instance when adding/removing OTRS tags, we want the edit to show in watchlists and the RC feed.

This task has been assigned to the same task owner for more than two years. Resetting task assignee due to inactivity, to decrease task cookie-licking and to get a slightly more realistic overview of plans. Please feel free to assign this task to yourself again if you still realistically work or plan to work on this task - it would be welcome!
