Please note that running automated edits to clean up anything marked "Cosmetic" on the list requires bot approval unless the cosmetic edit is coupled with a more substantial edit. In addition, the edits which are made in response to certain rules (such as in Bot Tools), or the CheckWiki portion of the program are not always infallible, so you should be prepared to respond to queries about such edits promptly.
