Meta:Requests for bot status/Wcdo-bot

From Meta, a Wikimedia project coordination wiki
Jump to: navigation, search


Hello, I would like to request a bot flag for the user wcdo-bot. I have just registered to upload graphs and introduce tables into pages generated for the project Wikipedia Cultural Diversity Observatory. Initially, I was considering creating an external website but after consulting with several language communities leaders, I think it is best to centralize all the data generated from this project into few specific meta pages. I need to update tables and substitute images in an automated process that takes place on a weekly basis. Using a bot is essential - and so is using pywikibot as a library in order to do these tasks. However, I was wondering if the bot I am proposing would need also a flag in Wikimedia Commons, as the images will be uploaded there. If you need any further information or clarification, just ask. I'll be happy to answer. Thank you very much. --Marcmiquel (talk) 19:01, 16 April 2018 (UTC)

  • Hi, can you make a few manual edits with your own editor account to demonstrate the exact edits this bot would make? — xaosflux Talk 19:42, 18 April 2018 (UTC)
  • With such a low volume, why do you want a bot flag? Please include in your reply you explanation as to the impact to recent changes/watch lists that you expect, how you will present your edits to achieve this, and why this account flagging is necessary. — xaosflux Talk 19:42, 18 April 2018 (UTC)
  • What is the volume of the edits you expect to make during your weekly runs here on meta? — xaosflux Talk 19:42, 18 April 2018 (UTC)
