Global bot status requests

Global bot status for User:DragonBot

DragonBot used to be a global bot for a long time and has close to a million interwiki edits. The bot flag was removed due to inactivity. Now that I have upgraded the bot to new version, request the bot flag back. Some recent edits are in ml.wiki and en.wiki --Jacob (talk) 21:04, 1 January 2013 (UTC)

The reason the bot is blocked in a couple of wikis is due to inactivity and presume shouldn't be of concern. --Jacob (talk) 21:06, 1 January 2013 (UTC)
Now the bot is not blocked in any of the wikis. --Jacob (talk) 16:12, 3 January 2013 (UTC)
Yes check.svg Done As agreed when I removed the botflag, it is now returned. Just please take care because some interwiki things have changed in the meantime, so experiencing on a restricted number of wikis before going cross-wiki would be better. Thanks for your interwiki work. -- Quentinv57 (talk) 17:30, 4 January 2013 (UTC)

Removal of global bot status

General discussion on the requests for removal of global bot status below

General discussion on the requests below should continue here: Talk:Bot policy#Inactive global bots should lose their global bot status. --UV (talk) 22:14, 1 January 2013 (UTC)

User:AHbot

This bot currently is not “active” (“on several wikis”) for the purpose of maintaining interlanguage links and/or fixing double-redirects as would be required for global bot access per the policy for global bots:

After 2011-07-19, this bot made edits on just three wikis (ru.wikipedia, commons and uk.wikipedia. This bot has the local bot flag on both ru.wikipedia and uk.wikipedia).

I therefore request removal of the global bot status for now. (Of course, it is possible to re-apply for bot status if the requirements are again met in the future.) --UV (talk) 22:14, 1 January 2013 (UTC)

I run the bot manually when I need to add or update interwikis or make other fixes. Bot does not abuse his rights, and I am active user, So I do not see reasons for unbot it.--Anatoliy (talk) 22:30, 1 January 2013 (UTC)
If your bot does not add or update interwiki links on “several wikis” often (and it did not do so from 2011-07-19 to now), perhaps it would be sufficient to add or update these interwiki links by bot even without bot flag? --UV (talk) 06:47, 2 January 2013 (UTC)

I'm the bot owner of Ripchip, and I can't really resume his work until 15 Jan (when POTY starts and I can drop that ball) since Toolserver doesn't allow bots to run interwiki.py on their servers anymore. However I can resume the activity on my computer after that. Hope this request can wait until there, Béria Lima msg 02:10, 2 January 2013 (UTC)
I am happy to learn that you intend to restart your bot soon after January 15, 2013. Unless someone else wishes to uphold this request, I withdraw my request for removal for now. --UV (talk) 06:47, 2 January 2013 (UTC)
