Global bot status requests

Global bot status for JarBot

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)
On which wikis was the bot tested? I see that in enwiki it performs different tasks. Ruslik (talk) 18:37, 4 July 2017 (UTC)
@Ruslik0: just on arwiki.--جار الله (talk) 12:24, 12 July 2017 (UTC)
If only on arwiki, you need to test it on other wikis and demonstrate that it works correctly. Ruslik (talk) 20:42, 12 July 2017 (UTC)
In a few days I will test it on other wikis.--جار الله (talk) 21:33, 13 July 2017 (UTC)
In a two days I will test it on other wikis.--جار الله (talk) 01:08, 15 July 2017 (UTC)

@جار الله: if it's not on a common framework, could you explain in short the details/algorithm how the bot will work? E.g. how will be handled interwiki conflicts. XXN (talk) 11:04, 15 July 2017 (UTC)
@XXN: it's a common framework, the bot will check if the page have item on wikidata if have will check sitelinks if any sitelinks in page will remove it from page, if the page don't have item on wikidata the bot will linking to wikidata based on langlinks in page, after linking to wikidata the bot will check sitelinks if any sitelinks in page will remove it from page, The code is simple.--جار الله (talk) 11:19, 15 July 2017 (UTC)
@Ruslik0: How much Edite I must made as an experiment? How many Wiki?,
  • Note:Edites will not differentiate between Wiki and other.--جار الله (talk) 20:59, 20 July 2017 (UTC)
The policy says: "the bot must already be active on several wikis, with long-term contributions to back up its trustworthiness". If you have such contributions outside Arabian projects, please, tell me where they are. If not you should ask for bot flags on several wikis, make edits and only after that ask for the global flag. Ruslik (talk) 19:42, 21 July 2017 (UTC)
I have bot flags but not for this task, anyway I will ask for bot flags on several wikis for this task, thank you.--جار الله (talk) 23:56, 21 July 2017 (UTC)
X mark.svg Not done Please, file a new request when you have some experience in running your bot on different wikis. Ruslik (talk) 20:02, 1 August 2017 (UTC)

Removal of global bot status


Please remove JAnDbot because he is blocked indefinitely on three projects 16:17, 8 August 2017 (UTC)

X mark.svg Not done Two blocks are very old and Commons is not a global bot wiki. Ruslik (talk) 18:27, 8 August 2017 (UTC)

Global bot status for UT-interwiki-Bot

I am the operator of UT-interwiki-Bot. Since the implementation of "Cognate" in all Wiktionaries this bot "is retired" and no longer active. Please remove the global bot flag, because it is no longer required. Thanks in advance. --Udo T. (talk) 10:31, 20 August 2017 (UTC)

Please provide botrights for this user, has been more than seven days in the discussion page and no objections from any user. Thanks in advance Huhbakker (talk) 21:05, 31 July 2017 (UTC)

X mark.svg Not done. @Huhbakker: There is no user by the name "InternetArchiveBot" at n:nl:. If you wish that service to operate in your wiki you need to ask for it at Phabricator. Regards, —MarcoAurelio (talk) 22:39, 31 July 2017 (UTC)
There must be a SUL problem, or alike. Can you please place it on-hold? I have requested him[1] too verify what's wrong / needs to be done. Ymnes (talk) 05:49, 1 August 2017 (UTC)
Okay. Put it on hold. —MarcoAurelio (talk) 09:19, 1 August 2017 (UTC)
Hi @MarcoAurelio:, the user is created on nl.wiknews. Thank you for putting this request on-hold. Huhbakker (talk) 17:48, 3 August 2017 (UTC)
Yes check.svg Done now. I've also added the bot to the confirmed user group for one month as the bot will be needing those to be able to write some pages which won't be able to without that. After the account gets autoconfirmed they won't need them no more. Regards, —MarcoAurelio (talk) 17:56, 3 August 2017 (UTC)
Great, thank you Huhbakker (talk) 18:06, 3 August 2017 (UTC)


Please grant IAB a bot flag so it can start working on CKB Wikipedia :)Épine (talk) 22:00, 2 August 2017 (UTC)

@Alaa:, can you do this please? Épine (talk) 01:13, 4 August 2017 (UTC)
@Épine: sorry, @Cyberpower678: has a more experience than me in this field --Alaa :)..! 16:25, 4 August 2017 (UTC)
I would be more than happy to do it myself, except I'm no steward, and have no need to be one at the moment. I think @MarcoAurelio: or @Ruslik0: have this power though.—CYBERPOWER (Chat) 17:51, 4 August 2017 (UTC)

Why does one user object? Ruslik (talk) 17:47, 7 August 2017 (UTC)
@Ruslik0: There obviously isn't anyone that objected. Everyone voted yes. If you're refereeing to the last section, that stands for "notes" and I notified an administrator there. The bot flag should've been already granted by now. I don't see a reason for it to be on hold in the first place. Épine (talk) 19:04, 7 August 2017 (UTC)

Hello. Currently, I make minor changes on ku:wiktionary with AutoWikiBrowser, which unnecessarily "pollutes" the history of "Recent changes". So I would like to have bot status for WîkîBot for ku.wiktionary. Thanks! --Ghybu (talk) 19:31, 22 August 2017 (UTC)
