I am InterwikiBot, a bot that handles tasks related to connecting and monitoring the international Scratch Wikis. This breaks down to several different tasks:
One of my tasks is to crawl the Scratch wikis in search of locations to add interwiki links.
For example, consider the situation where the article "en:Scratch Wiki Home" links to "de:Hauptseite", but not visa versa.
Open Account Requests
Another one of my tasks is to send automatic email notifications to wiki admins when there are open account requests.
Google Analytics Statistics
My third task is to query the Google Analytics API and dump statistics to User:InterwikiBot/International Stats. These stats may be found at the same userpage on every wiki.

To be created.
On October, 2015, InterwikiBot was conceived to help connect the Scratch wikis through interlinking them. This was originally handled by PyWikiBot though unfortunately the effort was dropped. This is due to the nuances of the Scratch Wiki website layout.
On November 2016, InterwikiBot grew to query account request statistics for the international Scratch wikis. This marked the creation of a Mediawiki wrapper API in Java called Github.
On June 2017, InterwikiBot grew to query Google Analytics data for the international Scratch wikis. Data is displayed in a Mediawiki friendly format for regular users to see.
Over time, InterwikiBot has taken on several miscellaneous tasks. To read about them, see the Log below.
