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).

Previous requests are archived.

Meta-Wiki requests


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 = 
    (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.

Global bot status for JarBot[edit]

I have some free time, and i would like first to serve wikis that do not have bots to do this job. جار الله (talk) 00:26, 24 June 2017 (UTC)

  • Well, I'm sure you know that interwiki maintenance on most wikis is now reduced to remove them as even now Wiktionaries use Cognate for the main namespace and maybe will be using Wikidata for other namespaces, right? —MarcoAurelio 10:29, 25 June 2017 (UTC)
The bot will add page link to Wikidata based on interwikis in page, If the page is not linked. And will remove the interwikis link if the page linked to same wikidata item, As an example 1.--جار الله (talk) 20:17, 25 June 2017 (UTC)

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.

Bot status requests[edit]

Please add new requests at the bottom of this section.


I want to get my bot flagged on hakwiki, and I did request for flag at here, and received a support, but there is no bureaucrats user now. Please help me. By the way, my bot has already been flagged on nanwiki (Hokkien) and cdowiki (Fuzhounese), which both are Hakka's brother languages.--S205643 (talk) 11:39, 20 May 2017 (UTC)

The request is probably too old and has one oppose. Ruslik (talk) 09:47, 24 May 2017 (UTC)
@S205643: please open a new request if you still need the flag. Matiia (talk) 03:02, 13 June 2017 (UTC)

(no response from admins, as you can see my contribution contains more edits from AWB, still have to fix dates on category kn:ವರ್ಗ:CS1 errors: dates) Anoop Rao .(Talk)(Contributions) 08:44, 25 June 2017 (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 his/her bot status, you may request removal of the status on his 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.
