This is my hazy understanding... I have not looked at the bot-generated articles, but I gather from reading the discussions about them, that they are very brief descriptions of cities, towns and villages around the world. "I've found literally hundreds of Volapuk articles which still have vast amounts of English text in them, due to bot-copying errors," wrote one Wikipedian who favored a forced deletion of all the bot-generated articles from the Volapuek Wikipedia.
