This page hosts requests for a Bot flag on a Wikimedia wiki with no bureaucrats. Please read the instructions before posting a request. Request to remove own permission should be done in SRP.

Please only make request here after gaining the on-wiki approval of your local community (i.e., don't list your bot here if you haven't consulted the local wiki for at least a week, or whatever local policies dictate). Previous requests are archived.

Before posting here[edit]

Before posting here, please check the following points:

  1. If there is a bureaucrat on the local wiki (visit Special:ListUsers/bureaucrat on the wiki to check): Please ask them to fulfill your request using Special:UserRights on the relevant wiki.
  2. Before requesting access here, make sure to obtain consensus on the local wiki if there is a community (see the index of request pages). If there is no local community, request on this page with a note to that effect. You can ask local bot flag directly here for some wikis in some cases (see automatic approval).
  3. Remember to read the local project's bot policy. This should be linked from the local bot request page; a few are listed below. DO NOT post your request here without having fulfilled the local policies first, and having waited for at least a week to gauge community opinion. In the case that the project does not have a local bot policy, the global bot policy applies.

Making a request[edit]

  1. Place the following code at the bottom of the "Bot status requests" section below:
    === Bot name@xxproject ===
     |status    = <!--don't change this line-->
     |domain    = 
     |user name = 
    (your remarks) ~~~~

    You can use following form when applying global bot status:

    === Global bot status for <yourbotname> ===
     |status    = <!--don't change this line-->
     |domain    = global<!--don't change this line-->
     |user name = 
    {{indent|''Not ending before {{subst:#time:j F Y H:i|+2 week}} UTC''}}
    (your remarks) ~~~~
  2. Fill in the values:
    • 'domain': the wiki's URL domain (like "ex.wikipedia" or "meta.wikimedia").
    • 'user name': the bot's user name (like "ExampleBot"). Leave it blank if you're requesting access for multiple bots.
    • 'discussion': a link to the local vote or discussion about the bot (for example, "[[ex:Wikipedia:Bots#ExampleBot]]"). Notes: If there is no local vote or discussion, please say so below the template and explain why not. If there's no community, implement the standard bot policy instead.
  3. If anything is missing from your request, a steward will request more information.

Global bot status requests[edit]

Global bots are enabled on most wikis using the standard bot policy (see list of global bot wikis and global bot access requirements). Request will be left open for at least 2 weeks to allow comments, and will be advertised via MassMessage by a steward.

Please add requests at the bottom of this section using the template above.

Removal of global bot status[edit]

Please see the removal policy for global bots for the requirements that must be met for global bot removal requests.

I have started a discussion with Reda Kerbouche on shywiktionary in order to run Lingua Libre Bot on this wiki. Since there is still no bureaucrat on this wiki, here is the request. Contributors on shywiktionary will come here to support this request. Pamputt (talk) 21:05, 17 July 2021 (UTC)

  1. Support Support I am the only Admin in this Wiktionary, and we need this bot. The bot work on the French version of the Wiktionary very well.--Reda Kerbouche (talk) 21:55, 17 July 2021 (UTC)
  2. Support Support agree with Reda. The bot can help us to put audio of the words in the pages of our Wiktionary.--Zakaria Mimouni (talk) 21:59, 17 July 2021 (UTC)
  3. Support Support I have put a lot of recording through the linguaLibre platform, and now it's the time to get the audio to our Wiktionary.--Zinou2go (talk) 22:08, 17 July 2021 (UTC)
  4. Support Support all my support Great11 (talk) 22:22, 17 July 2021 (UTC)

Please, create the local account. Ruslik (talk) 19:58, 23 July 2021 (UTC)


I discussed with Imranqazi90 (an admin on Kashmiri Wiktionary) about flagging my bot RishabhBot account as a bot. There's no bureaucrat there, hence I am posting it here. I apologise for the edits that I made as a bot without it as being marked as such. I run various scripts on the bot, mainly to update pages with the templates for etymology, headword and translations; and to add number names, pronunciations etc. I think the bot is useful, and I'm sure others would agree.

Bot uses pywikibot and runs on PAWS.

There should be a discussion on some general forum, not on your talk page. Ruslik (talk) 08:29, 27 July 2021 (UTC)
@Ruslik0: my bad, have changed the link. Rishabhbhat (talk) 10:50, 27 July 2021 (UTC)

Removal of bot status[edit]

Requests for removal of the bot status from your own bots can be done here. If a specific user is abusing their bot status, you may request removal of the status on their account here as well. Please be sure to provide a short explanation on the current situation, along with links to the bot's contribution and an announcement in your community of the abuse. Previous requests are archived.
