Global bot requests

Global bot status for Obersachsebot

Thank you! Obersachse 12:45, 28 April 2009 (UTC)

@"most of them": You know that you are then only allowed to do interwiki linking (and double-redirect fixing) on wikis where you don't have a local bot flag? :) --Thogo (talk) 12:49, 28 April 2009 (UTC)
Of course I do :-) To start a bot for other purposes than interwiki linking I have to know the specific rules and the language of local wikis. Not being a polyglot I will do what I'm able to do. And that's only setting/removing/changing interwikis. --Obersachsebot 12:57, 28 April 2009 (UTC)
Done. --Daniel Mayer (mav) 20:07, 3 May 2009 (UTC)

Global bot status for ButkoBot

Thank you! Butko 06:40, 30 April 2009 (UTC)

Hello Butko, imho the bot does not yet fulfill the global bot requirements especially: "the bot must already be active on several wikis, with long-term contributions to back up its trustworthiness", other views welcomed, best regards, --birdy geimfyglið (:> )=| 20:13, 3 May 2009 (UTC)
My bot have ≈ 71700 edits in 3 wikis. First edits was in russian wikipedia in september 2007. See http://toolserver.org/~vvv/sulutil.php?user=ButkoBot --Butko 07:41, 4 May 2009 (UTC)
Yes, that is what I mean, it is only active in 3 wikis, which is imho not activity "on several wikis", also please see the question of Mav below, best regards, --birdy geimfyglið (:> )=| 09:13, 4 May 2009 (UTC)
A "several" - this is how much? 4, 5, 6, 7, etc? --Butko 13:53, 6 May 2009 (UTC)
(ec) ButkoBot is already a local bot on all three wiki's the account has any edits on. What would be gained by having global bot status? --Daniel Mayer (mav) 20:14, 3 May 2009 (UTC)

X mark.svg Not done Sorry. Only has 4 locally flagged accounts and active in only 3 wikis. Please request flags on more wikis and come back here. Thanks. --Meno25 19:29, 8 May 2009 (UTC)

Global bot status for ChtitBot

Thank you! chtit_draco talk page 13:49, 3 May 2009 (UTC)

This request looks fine to me, the bot has bot flags in many projects and does already run for a long period of time on many projects, best regards, --birdy geimfyglið (:> )=| 19:31, 3 May 2009 (UTC)
Agreed. Good candidate. Let's wait a few more days but I don't foresee any issues. --Daniel Mayer (mav) 20:09, 3 May 2009 (UTC)

Yes check.svg Done. --Meno25 19:25, 8 May 2009 (UTC)

Global bot status for Almabot

Thank you! Nakor 21:09, 7 May 2009 (UTC)

Request looks fine to me, bot is active on many wikis over a longer period of time, others may agree or disagree here, this request will stay open some days to give others the chance to do so. Best regards, --birdy geimfyglið (:> )=| 22:51, 7 May 2009 (UTC)
A little concerned about "long-term contributions" from the policy; how long is long-term? A lot of the flags hasn't been set until 2009, but I have no real objections. Seems trustworthy. Laaknor 07:27, 8 May 2009 (UTC)
status granted per consensus, best regards, --birdy geimfyglið (:> )=| 10:17, 13 May 2009 (UTC)
Thanks. Nakor 13:30, 13 May 2009 (UTC)

Global bot status for DumZiBoT

Thank you! NicDumZ 12:15, 13 May 2009 (UTC)

  • I support this request. I trust NicDumZ and DumZiBoT. Nakor 13:30, 13 May 2009 (UTC)
  • Looks fine, bot seems to fulfill the global bot requirements. But please note, that with global bot flag You also need to respect local policies and not all wikis have automatic approval, and some wikis do not yet have global bot, so You will need to collect flags there. Best regards, --birdy geimfyglið (:> )=| 18:36, 18 May 2009 (UTC)
    I understand that some wikis dont use global bots, and that I can't edit there with DumZiBoT without prior local approval.
    But I am somewhat confused by your comment: why are we talking of automatic approval, and of respecting local policies? If you're "only" saying that local approval, or automatic approval is required before editing on wikis that dont use global bots, I understand your point. If you are saying something else, other than that, or something more, I missed you, and I'll ask you to please explain me again what you meant. Thanks :) NicDumZ 12:14, 19 May 2009 (UTC)
    Hello, there are some wikis that allow global bots bot not automatic approval, You will have to make a request there before You can edit and global bots also have to respect local policies where they run (apart from only being allowed to be interwikibots, which is the case here anyway), I just mentioned this because I had the feeling that this was not clear to You because of Your note "without having to run around to collect flags". See Implementation#Where_it_is_policy but be aware that this list might not be up to date, best regards, --birdy geimfyglið (:> )=| 18:41, 19 May 2009 (UTC)
    So you're saying that for wikis that allow global bots, but not automatic approval (ie according to the list, nlwiki & kowiki for wikipedias) , I have to ask locally first? If this is the policy, Bot policy might need some clarifications :))
    Anyway they are more than 150 wikipedias that seem to allow global bots and automatic approval, that's more than enough to keep a bot busy :) regards, NicDumZ 00:35, 20 May 2009 (UTC)
    No, I am saying You have to look what the local policy is and then handle according to it, that is what at least is expected from a global bot owner, best regards, --birdy geimfyglið (:> )=| 00:37, 20 May 2009 (UTC)
  • Very Trusted user. DarkoNeko 11:52, 22 May 2009 (UTC)

Yes check.svg Done -- sj | help translate |+ 02:00, 9 May 2009 (UTC)
In general, if you're on a wiki without a global bot policy, it helps to speed things up to ask them to implement one at the same time. [in some cases, like this one, the local admins / editors don't know our cross-wiki process] -- sj | help translate |+ 01:29, 9 May 2009 (UTC)

Comment Comment: This request was titled "GrondinBot" but the username you used in the template was "Grondin". The local request page has "GrondinBot" but birdy flagged the account "Grondin". Do you want the flag for your account or your bot account? --Meno25 16:18, 9 May 2009 (UTC)
My bot account. Not my account. Sorry for that. :'(. --Bertrand GRONDIN – Talk 16:25, 9 May 2009 (UTC)

Hello Bertrand, I have some concerns here, the bot is creating new categories [2] but it is not mentioned in the request that it does this too, please either add this to the request, or probably better, stick to interwikilinking only, best regards, --birdy geimfyglið (:> )=| 06:07, 11 May 2009 (UTC)

I've just seen your message and your comments are entirely justified and I apologize. It's true. I did a new request for that. So, the bot will do interwiki links only as the statutory deadlines will not be passed to receive approvals and objections. Sorry !--Bertrand GRONDIN – Talk 12:30, 11 May 2009 (UTC)
Hello Bertrand, thanks for opening a new request for that, I see no problems granting the botstatus for interwikilinking now, but if You wish to create categories You should have explicit approval of the community (if no one comments there the wiki would be too inactive to allow such actions as flagged bot, so the bot would not be allowed to create these pages/categories), if You agree to this condition I see no further problem here, best regards, --birdy geimfyglið (:> )=| 16:27, 12 May 2009 (UTC)
I agree.--Bertrand GRONDIN – Talk 22:27, 12 May 2009 (UTC)

Bot Almabot@gu.wiki

fr:User:Nakor has requested Bot status at the Community Portal of gu.wiki, but as we have no active Bureaucrats there on gu.wiki, being an only Active Admin, I am requesting to grant Almabot a Bot Flag for our wiki. Basically he is adding interwiki links and have done many edits recently.

Bot Gubot@gu.wikipedia

Hi, I am a sysop on gu.wiki and have recently (just yesterday) started using pywiki, mainly to replace spellings on gu.wiki, which is now growing fast. I had run the bot for test last night without creating Bot account (using my main account Dsvyas), just to see whether I can run a bot using pywikipedia. Please pardon me for doing such bulk replace without Bot status. Thank you! Gubot 09:38, 15 May 2009 (UTC)
