Global bot status requests

Global bot status for Ebrambot

after ~187k edit and 30 flag, i think my bot can be a global bot. may it is a young bot, but it had good contribution all over wikimedia projects. --ebraminiotalk 17:57, 19 October 2010 (UTC)

  • Support Support No objections. --dferg ☎ talk 14:21, 21 October 2010 (UTC)
  • No serious objections, either, but you could be more responsive. I fixed it for you this time, but other places might not know where to find you and it could get you blocked; please create contact-pages before your first bot-edit. Seb az86556 17:07, 21 October 2010 (UTC)

Global bot status for Mjbmrbot

I requested for bot flag in many wikis and i got about 33 flags, the task of my bot in other wikis is just edit interwikis, and i think this is best choice for me to get a global flag, i know it has done just a little edits (about 5000), but it had good contribution Mjbmr Talk 11:46, 31 October 2010 (UTC)

  • Strong oppose. This bot only made 4800 global edits. — Tanvir • 11:52, 31 October 2010 (UTC)
  • Comment Comment — Sorry, I had to make something clear first. Meta's bot policy says, global bots need to be qualified "with long-term contributions to back up its trustworthiness". As far as I know, this bot is doing fine, but it is too young to get this flag. It was registered in October 1, 2010. That's not an enough time to verify it's trustworthiness. — Tanvir • 14:05, 31 October 2010 (UTC)
  • X mark.svg Not done I knew the policy but somebody who was a bureaucrat said me to request, I canceled my request for Tanvir, so i will try again later, Thank you Mjbmr Talk 15:43, 31 October 2010 (UTC)
  • Comment Comment Please remember to update your bot software regularly. This morning, your bot moved the bjn, koi, and mrj interwikis to the top of the interwiki list of a page (see here). This is wrong, and it indicates that you most probably have not updated your bot's software for several days. In the pywikipediabot software, which you are apparently using, the problem was fixed on October 23 already (revision 8683). You are apparently using a software version that is older than that. Meanwhile, the current version of the pywikipediabot software is revision 8695, so your bot is probably lacking at least the last ten improvements and bugfixes. The bot policy on the English wikipedia states: Bots running standard tools such as the pywikipedia framework should be updated to the latest version daily. (emphasis added) Bots running on old software are likely to get blocked on several wikimedia projects. --UV 21:54, 3 November 2010 (UTC)
No, I updated it every day, but recently i update wikipedia_family.py from the main source and i got some error like this (Family instance has no has attribute 'alphabetic_revised'), then i had to change it manually to add new languages, if the bugs on main source get fix then i will update it every day Mjbmr Talk 06:57, 4 November 2010 (UTC)
done--I fixed it, now i update whole files everyday from nightly version ! , and it works inside the main namespace and category namespace, Thanks Mjbmr Talk 09:03, 5 November 2010 (UTC)

Global bot status for TjBot

I would like to request for a global bot status, it keeps updating the interwiki. Thanks — Tjmoel Icons-flag-id.png bicara 18:17, 29 October 2010 (UTC)

  • No objections if you regularly update the pywikipediabot software that your bot uses. How often (approx.) do you do that? --UV 22:06, 29 October 2010 (UTC)
    Almost on daily basis, and if got problems (as a couple days ago) I searched for solutions on IRC and get help from others there. — Tjmoel Icons-flag-id.png bicara 22:10, 29 October 2010 (UTC)
    Good, thank you for your answer! --UV 10:52, 30 October 2010 (UTC)
  • No objections for me too, as long this bot will just add interwikis. -- Quentinv57 11:05, 3 November 2010 (UTC)
    I am using the bot flag only for interwiki. Rgds, — Tjmoel Icons-flag-id.png bicara 20:22, 8 November 2010 (UTC)
  • Support Ok --dferg ☎ talk 11:00, 12 November 2010 (UTC)
  • Done. Had to be done on the bot's home wiki, idwiki, since the bot is not active on meta. --Daniel Mayer (mav) 02:27, 22 November 2010 (UTC)
  • Okay, thanks .. I have requested directly locally. Cheers — Tjmoel Icons-flag-id.png bicara 06:58, 22 November 2010 (UTC)
I am a crat on the Indonesian Wikipedia. TjBot is already a bot there. Do I need to do anything? Cheers. Meursault2004 21:47, 22 November 2010 (UTC)

Global bot status for JackBot

Hello, yesterday I've developped a script to maintain the interwikis FA links, however I've noticed that tenths of the Featured Articles links where missing everywhere.

Moreover, I use redirect.py on a few wikis and would be pleased to extend its destinations. JackPotte 22:10, 2 November 2010 (UTC)

Comment Comment — This bot is flagged in only 7 wikis, and blocked in another 4. Most of its edits in frwikt, mrwikt, and frwiki. In my view, this bot isn't enough trustworthy with a global bot flag. — Tanvir • 10:47, 3 November 2010 (UTC)
Note that three of these blocks are abusive. You won't block a bot just as he done one edit :O -- Quentinv57 11:09, 3 November 2010 (UTC)
Comment Comment — I personally trust the bot owner, but I think that we must wait a bit before granting a global bot flag. Before adding {{LinkFA|fr}} on many wikis, please check that the template exists and works finely. -- Quentinv57 11:04, 3 November 2010 (UTC)
Oppose Oppose The bot doesn't meet the requirements. Ask more local flags, especially in major wikis, and come back to ask a global flag. Note that also global bots must have a local page with contact on pages where they operate. And that many wikis don't allow bots with no flag or no application for flag. --Hercule 14:20, 3 November 2010 (UTC)
Thanks, I'm launching some elections now. JackPotte 14:58, 3 November 2010 (UTC)
Comment Comment Please see Bot policy#Global bots. Maintaining the FA template links is not covered by the list of tasks that global bots are permitted to do. --UV 21:59, 3 November 2010 (UTC)
As it's just an interwiki link upgrade I didn't agree when I read it before asking for this flag. JackPotte 22:17, 3 November 2010 (UTC)
Comment Comment I cannot find any local flag request for adding link fa. It must also be sure that the bot won't start any edits wars with sulutil:LinkFA-Bot who run this job on all major wikis. Merlissimo 02:27, 4 November 2010 (UTC)
Thanks, I did it on four wikis at the present moment, and will take the time to touch more ones when I'll have more time. JackPotte 07:00, 4 November 2010 (UTC)
It doesn't make sense to add link fa to wikis without stars enabled on Common.js or as gadget. It would be also nice to know if link fa was added or removed by reading only the summary e.g. on watchlist. Summary should also start with "Bot:" or "Robot:" because bot flag is lost after 30 days. Merlissimo 10:35, 4 November 2010 (UTC)
OK, I'll take this very constructive comment into account in the code and requests. JackPotte 19:31, 4 November 2010 (UTC)
