WindAdminBot mass block ed open proxies, used by some trolls to abuse the Wikipedia rules. This blocks, due to their large numbers, impede read the logs to CheckUsers, which analyzes them to check IP addresses of new accounts vandals and trolls. Need add the feature to the Special:Log „hide bots“, as on the Special:RecentChanges.

I'm not sure if this is even possible, since the "bot flag" is a temporary thing, only stored in the recentchanges table, and not in the logging table.

Could a column be added to the logging table to hold the bot flag info, such as in the recentchanges table? Granted that wouldn't help in past log entries, but the ones forward would be able to benefit.

Still, this is a major inconvenience when viewing Special:Log, for example, ProcseeBot's blocks clogging the local block log on enwiki.

Column Prototype
This is a very early prototype of a persistent column. It is not expected to work yet, and leaving it open will activate other new features which will break things. Press "\" (backslash) on your keyboard to close it now.
