I have made a bot by the name of User:System, and would like for it to officially become a bot. It will handle everything when needed, and is pretty good, i propose. Can i have the bot be allowed to be a bot?

First, you need to give a detailed description of what your bot will do. Second, why is your account in English Wikipedia blocked indefinitely for "spamming links to external sites"? OhanaUnitedTalk page 04:25, 18 April 2009 (UTC)
Just as a note, for future reference, a name like "System" is not a good one. Too general, and too confusing (it may sound like it's a component of the software)... also having Bot in the name is goodness even if not strictly mandatory. I would have opposed this nom on these grounds even if it was a request from a user in good standing that clearly explained exactly what the bot was going to do. ++Lar: t/c 12:24, 18 April 2009 (UTC)
