This page hosts requests for a bot flag on a Wikimedia wiki with no bureaucrats. Please read the instructions before posting a request. Do NOT post your request here until you get community approval (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).

Instructions[edit]

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 ===
    {{sr-request
     |status    = <!--don't change this line-->
     |domain    = 
     |user name = 
     |discussion= 
    }}
    (your remarks) ~~~~
    

    You can use following form when applying global bot status:

    === Global bot status for <yourbotname> ===
    {{sr-request
     |status    = <!--don't change this line-->
     |domain    = global<!--don't change this line-->
     |user name = 
     |discussion= 
    }}
    (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 typically be left open for several days to allow comments. Please add requests at the bottom of this section.


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.

UT-interwiki-Bot@hewiktionary[edit]

This bot account will only edit interwiki links in Wiktionarys. It has global bot flag now, but for operating in Hebrew Wiktionary it needs the local bot flag, because the Hebrew Wiktionary doesn't allow global bots. I have requested local at 25 May 2016 and after a while I "pinged" the two local bureaucrats (see discusssion). I also wrote a message to bureaucrat Ariel1024 on his talk page at 22 June 2016 (see here) and "pinged" him and the other bureaucrat again. Both bureaucrats seem to be active but I didn't get any answer until now. Is it possible in such a case, to get the local bot flag for Hebrew Wiktionary from the stewards? Greetings from Austria --Udo T. (talk) 09:22, 17 July 2016 (UTC)

Bureaucrat Ariel1024 has now flagged UT-interwiki-Bot (see his answer). Thanks to MarcoAurelio for his intervention. Greetings --Udo T. (talk) 08:11, 18 July 2016 (UTC)
