Talk:Bot aid

From Meta, a Wikimedia project coordination wiki

I don't understand. Most of this page is about non-Wikimedia projects. Isn't the point for anyone needing bots for MediaWiki sites? It's certainly not the only page on meta aimed at broader MediaWiki users (sites using MediaWiki, list of largest wikis etc). Angela 01:49, 30 October 2007 (UTC)

The only real problem which I may see here is making this place and such places as a target for a huge amount of (not necessary spam) commercials. (Of course, the irrational part of problem is that a lot of people don't like connection between Wikimedia and Wikia.) But I completely support existence of commercial offers like yours on pages like this one. --Millosh 13:01, 30 October 2007 (UTC)
I think that the main problem is that such thing is not community sanctioned and that it is extremely hard to make such step forward. If you want to make some kind of Wikimedia Marketplace, I will support this idea. --Millosh 13:01, 30 October 2007 (UTC)
However, I am very skeptical about success of this effort. And Nickj already made WikiHR. So, maybe it is a better idea to inform people about his site on pages similar to this one. --Millosh 13:01, 30 October 2007 (UTC)
In brief, I support announcing offers like yours, but I think that reality of the community is different. --Millosh 13:01, 30 October 2007 (UTC)
