Rotate variables

Sub ROT type: stars with spots that were not classified in a particular class. All the SPOTTED stars on the UNSW list and the very small spotted stars found by Kepler are included here. In addition, some stars that do not fit into the current subtypes due to their physical properties have been classified as such (brown dwarfs and spotted white dwarfs).
