Non-bot edits are marked as bot
Closed, InvalidPublic

Description

I have noticed that non-bot edits are appearing in my watchlist as bots (the IP and @binbot do not have bot flag). I have never seen this problem before and both versions are affected.

@binbot (username: Bináris, for others who are confused that they are not a bot) has markbotedits - their edit is tagged with mw-rollback in the screenshot. Since they have markbotedits, they could have chosen to mark that rollback as a bot edit. In addition to marking the rollback itself as a bot edit, markbotedits also marks the previous edit as a bot edit - see https://www.mediawiki.org/wiki/Manual:Administrators#Rollback for a fuller explanation

I use the name of my bot here on Phabricator as a username, because accented letters are prohibited for some reason (hey, it's 2019!). Sorry if this confuses somebody. I updated my profile to make the use of singular clear. :-)

Thanks for the fast reply and sorry about the false alarm!

Sorry, I am in the habit of always using "they", so I don't need to worry about assuming, checking, asking, or offending

glad I could be of help
