What is InternetArchiveBot and what does it do?

InternetArchiveBot, IABot in short, is a very advanced bot designed to combat en:WP:LINKROT, as well as fix inconsistencies in sources such as improper template usage, or invalid archives.

Under the hood, IABot has an immense, and ever growing, database, where each URL is saved along with details with, and archive snapshots, either queried from the Wayback Machine, or collected elsewhere on Wikipedia.

On top of that, the bot is highly customizable to suit the wiki's needs. Different options, such as controlling which sources to touch, which pages to scan, and whether or not scan live links and act on that information. IABot is still in ongoing development, to support additional wikis, but is complete for the English Wikipedia.
