Who, or which project, has asked Editbot to change category 'Free Settlers to Australia'? [closed]

+1 vote

On my Nav Home Page, I've just seen a long list of changes made to profiles I manage.
For example:  https://www.wikitree.com/wiki/Jones-83327 had a category renamed from 'Free Settlers' to 'Free Settlers to Australia' , and 'Emigrants from County Cavan to Australia' to 'County Cavan, Emigrants to Australia'.
Now I have no concern about the logic supporting these changes.
My technical question is whether it is possible to ask Editbot, who has asked for these changes?

I believe Margaret Haining posted that she did - on behalf of the Australia Project.  (You even thanked her for explaining it,)

Thanks Melanie, I'm heading in for a memory checkup next week. The other part of my question is who renamed the County Cavan category.

If it's an immigration related category, I would guess Margaret.  She's the Aus Project's categorisation person.

(Nah ..we all have these memory lapses -- I mean, who are you?  You LOOK familiar .. .. .. cheeky)


If you fill in the blanks, the correct category name will display. Category project members renamed that in December 2019, according to EditBot's log files, during a session of work on migration maintenance. We still have much to clean up, as you can see here:https://www.wikitree.com/wiki/Category:Migration_Maintenance

Thanks Natalie. You have answered the question I was trying to ask. I have no concern about the changes that have been made to the profile I refer to. I was more curious that if I had a concern, then  'How can I trace back to the person who has requested the change so that I can query and discuss?'. Thanks for pointing me towards the EditBot log files.
