Global bot requests

Global bot status for TaBOT-zerem

Thank you! TaBaZzz 18:30, 28 March 2009 (UTC)

Hello, imho the bot is not fulfilling Bot_policy#Global_bots especially: "already be active on several wikis, with long-term contributions to back up its trustworthiness", other opinions welcome, best regards, --birdy geimfyglið (:> )=| 15:23, 29 March 2009 (UTC)
I am working with this bot for quite a while. It is working great and his operator is very cooperative. One of the very few bots that know how to handle links to categories, info boxes and other things outside of the main articles area. I support this request. w:user:Chagai, w:he:משתמש:חגי אדלר 71.11.131.103 22:08, 1 April 2009 (UTC)
I have noticed the good work of this user. The bot-operator is indeed cooperative, and I believe that giving him Global status will benefit everyone. Broccolitalk page 22:30, 1 April 2009 (UTC)

On one hand I tend to a yes, because the bot is doing quite well on some larger wikis. On the other hand, I don't know the bot, I actually saw that name for the first time here, and the bot is not active for long, only since half a year or so. This seems too early in the light of the gbot policy (although there are no fixed dates for how long the bot shall be active). So I'm very undecided about this, but I would rather decline it then approve it - for now. In a half year's time this might be different, though. Maybe also seek for more local flags on larger wikis, like dewiki, plwiki or eswiki. --Thogo (talk) 21:39, 13 April 2009 (UTC)

X mark.svg Not done Sorry. The bot is flagged on only 7 wikis. Please register and request local bot flags in more wikis and reapply for a global flag after that. Thanks. --Meno25 22:29, 21 April 2009 (UTC)

Global bot status for MSBOT

Thank you! Meisam 07:48, 14 April 2009 (UTC)

IMHO the bot has very few edits, I would probably not agree to a global botstatus, but would welcome other opinions about this user/bot and change my mind. Please note that the bot is blocked on plwiki, maybe You can solve that (not a requirement though, but a clarifications about the block would be good, since it seems to have gotten blocked for something else than editing without a flag). It has editor status on de.wiki, is it under discussion there to be granted botflag? best regards, --birdy geimfyglið (:> )=| 09:37, 17 April 2009 (UTC)
If you think 20523 is "very few", then I have nothing to say about it (I usually check most of the added/deleted interwiki links to be right. Sorry, I'm a human and can't do more!). In pl.wiki the bot had just one edit (robot dodaje: fa; cosmetic changes) and got blocked without any warning. The bot won't edit on pl though. I've applied for bot flag in de.wiki too [1]. -- Meisam 12:07, 17 April 2009 (UTC)
In general most people who ask for global are usually over 100,000. But there is no set number. -Djsasso 16:43, 17 April 2009 (UTC)
More or less edits won't make a bot to work (right, better/wrong, worse)! -- Meisam 18:18, 17 April 2009 (UTC)
No but it will give a bigger history of the bot working with multiple wikis upon which to make sure its working correctly. The bigger the sample size the more accurate the decision. -Djsasso 13:30, 20 April 2009 (UTC)
Hello Meisam, thanks for the explainations, to me this looks good then, and I would agree to global bot status for Your bot, please note that we are not discrediting the work You did, we just need to find out the bots functionality and owners trustworthity, and that we mostly can only do by the contributions since we can't possibly know everyone, if another steward agrees to this request, it can be directly done by him, but I would like to hear a second opinion first, since a global status imho is something sensitive, thanks for Your understanding, best regards, --birdy geimfyglið (:> )=| 17:44, 21 April 2009 (UTC)
Thanks for your considerations. (I'll always remember your proverb: "Better be safe than sorry", Spacebirdy) The bot is unblocked in pl.wiki. -- Meisam 18:25, 21 April 2009 (UTC)
Support Support I know the Bot and Bot runner well , and i think Meisam is trustworthy enough :-) --Mardetanha talk 22:20, 21 April 2009 (UTC)
Yes check.svg Done Note also that your bot has 2 unattached accounts. --Meno25 22:26, 21 April 2009 (UTC)
Thank you all. -- Meisam 02:19, 22 April 2009 (UTC)
All accounts unified! -- Meisam 20:08, 22 April 2009 (UTC)

Bot status requests

Luckas-bot@azwiktionary

--Lucas Nunes 23:27, 25 March 2009 (UTC)

Three edits seem too few.--Jusjih 01:42, 26 March 2009 (UTC)
See wikt:User:Interwicket/FL status; there aren't any NS:0 edits available. (;-) In any case, for wiktionary NS:0 iwikis, it is important that the bots running work on all the wikts. For the other namespaces, (categories etc), it is more like wikipedia interwiki linking. Robert Ullmann 12:16, 29 March 2009 (UTC)
Hello, the bot is malfunctioning: [2], best regards, --birdy geimfyglið (:> )=| 14:08, 29 March 2009 (UTC)
This type of error won't happen anymore, I've changed the commands. I've runned the bot and deleted a lot of wrong interwikis. --Lucas Nunes 17:16, 29 March 2009 (UTC)
Thanks Lucas Nunes, lets only wait some days then to see if it works correct, the -wiktionary command is essential. Thanks for Your work, best regards, --birdy geimfyglið (:> )=| 12:15, 30 March 2009 (UTC)

done, since no objections locally and errors seemed fixed, best regards, --birdy geimfyglið (:> )=| 01:19, 3 April 2009 (UTC)

Purbo T@pntwiki

Thank you! Purodha Blissenbach 21:48, 23 March 2009 (UTC)

I would like to suggest you create a global account for your bot Purbo T. I would also like to suggest you get the global bot status. Cheers, Razorflame 02:05, 24 March 2009 (UTC)


Hello the bot does not yet fulfill the bot policy: either editing for >1 week, or having >100 edits, thanks, --birdy geimfyglið (:> )=| 18:47, 24 March 2009 (UTC)

The bot should be editing. Bug 2693183 is the reason why it does not at the moment. Sorry. --Purodha Blissenbach 21:15, 27 March 2009 (UTC)
No worries, we just leave this open until it reaches either 7 days or 100 edits, best regards, --birdy geimfyglið (:> )=| 15:18, 29 March 2009 (UTC)

It's been up for a week. You don't have to worry about unblocking it, it's already done. Thank you! Techman224Talk 22:36, 29 March 2009 (UTC)

Hello, the bot is not yet editing for >1 week or having >100 edits, please see Bot_policy#Automatic_approval, we can leave this here open until it has enough edits, but only if it continues to edit there, best regards, --birdy geimfyglið (:> )=| 22:42, 29 March 2009 (UTC)
I'm talking about TechBot, not myself. Techman224Talk 00:43, 30 March 2009 (UTC)
I think she is as well, because you only had edits on the 22nd and 29th....7 days apart...the idea of editing for a week is that you have edits throughout that time period so that people will notice you editing and either revert if there are mistakes or make a comment about it. Basically you have only edited for 2 days. -Djsasso 01:22, 30 March 2009 (UTC)
Yep, thanks Djsasso for explaining it :) Best regards, --birdy geimfyglið (:> )=| 12:12, 30 March 2009 (UTC)
I'm talking about the discussion, not the automatic approval. Techman224Talk 17:04, 30 March 2009 (UTC)
*sighabit* well, the bot is blocked currently, since the wiki suscribes to the standard bot policy but blocks interwikibots that do their first edits unflagged (but which is required for them to get a flag) I left one bureaucrat a message, there is not much of a discussion there, which is why I wanted to leave this open until it reaches the locally accepted requirements. But since it got blocked it can't reach that, now I hope the locals will change their blocking practique to allow us to handle these requests normally.
Best regards, --birdy geimfyglið (:> )=| 17:52, 30 March 2009 (UTC)

Hello, I would like to mention that I am not the owner of the bot, and have simply asked the owner to use the bot on Armenian Wikiquote as well. The Wikiquote does have an admin, but he has been away recently, and hence I am applying here for requesting a bot flag for this bot on the Armenian Wikiquote.

Thank you! Chaojoker 18:26, 4 April 2009 (UTC)

TechBot@lowikipedia

Bot has been editing for 7 days now. Thank you! Techman224Talk 02:40, 6 April 2009 (UTC)

True. But only 25 or so edits... on a wiki with a pretty active group of local editors and another mostly-english VP where global bot policy was added by fiat after a recent english-language request with no response after a week. I feel very uncomfortable with this class of requests. In particular, since the active admin on lo:wp didn't weigh in on the idea of implementing global bot policy, that needs to be rethought. We need to find a better way to connect with those editing communities, or alter 'global bot policy' so that it explicitly applies to all wikis that do not opt out, rather than according to this pseudo-opt-in. (I know this is a cross-wiki bot policy concern, not specific to your bot; you just happen to be bringing it to the fore.) -- sj | help translate |+ 03:11, 6 April 2009 (UTC)
Something to consider would be to apply for bots on non-global wikis like I did and build up your edit history (as you won't get alot of edits from most of these wikis you have been asking for flags on) And once you get a significant history then apply for global bot to cover all these small wikis. Yes you won't have as many flags as quickly but on most of these small wikis there are usually a very small number of edits to be done, so it will actually take longer to get global bot status (if that is your goal) by trying to get flags on these ones as opposed to the big wikis like de, es, fr, ru, zh, nl etc etc etc. -Djsasso 15:41, 6 April 2009 (UTC)
7 days for me are: 27.3, 28.3, 29.3, 30.3, 3.4, 4.4 and 5.4. therefore Yes check.svg granted the flag, best regards, --birdy geimfyglið (:> )=| 08:51, 11 April 2009 (UTC)
