Steward requests/Bot status

For bot status on Meta-Wiki, see the bot policy and request page.
Requests and proposals Steward requests (Bot status) latest archive

This page hosts requests for a Bot flag on a Wikimedia wiki with no bureaucrats. Please read the instructions before posting a request. Request to remove own permission should be done in SRP.

Please only make request here after gaining the on-wiki approval of your local community (i.e., don't list your bot here if you haven't consulted the local wiki for at least a week, or whatever local policies dictate). Previous requests are archived.

Before posting hereEdit

Before posting here, please check the following points:

  1. If there is a bureaucrat on the local wiki (visit Special:ListUsers/bureaucrat on the wiki to check): Please ask them to fulfill your request using Special:UserRights on the relevant wiki.
  2. Before requesting access here, make sure to obtain consensus on the local wiki if there is a community (see the index of request pages). If there is no local community, request on this page with a note to that effect. You can ask local bot flag directly here for some wikis in some cases (see automatic approval).
  3. Remember to read the local project's bot policy. This should be linked from the local bot request page; a few are listed below. DO NOT post your request here without having fulfilled the local policies first, and having waited for at least a week to gauge community opinion. In the case that the project does not have a local bot policy, the global bot policy applies.

Making a requestEdit

  1. Place the following code at the bottom of the "Bot status requests" section below:
    === Bot name@xxproject ===
    | status = <!--don't change this line-->
    | domain = 
    | user name = 
    | discussion = 
    (your remarks) ~~~~

    You can use following form when applying global bot status:

    === Global bot status for <yourbotname> ===
    | status = <!--don't change this line-->
    | domain = global<!--don't change this line-->
    | user name = 
    | discussion = 
    {{indent|''Not ending before {{subst:#time:j F Y H:i|+2 week}} UTC''}}
    (your remarks) ~~~~
  2. Fill in the values:
    • 'domain': the wiki's URL domain (like "ex.wikipedia" or "meta.wikimedia").
    • 'user name': the bot's user name (like "ExampleBot"). Leave it blank if you're requesting access for multiple bots.
    • 'discussion': a link to the local vote or discussion about the bot (for example, "[[ex:Wikipedia:Bots#ExampleBot]]"). Notes: If there is no local vote or discussion, please say so below the template and explain why not. If there's no community, implement the standard bot policy instead.
  3. If anything is missing from your request, a steward will request more information.

Global bot status requestsEdit

Global bots are enabled on most wikis using the standard bot policy (see list of global bot wikis and global bot access requirements). Request will be left open for at least 2 weeks to allow comments, and will be advertised via MassMessage by a steward.

Please add requests at the bottom of this section using the template above.

Global bot status for JhsBotEdit

Not ending before 26 November 2022 10:53 UTC

Now that the RFC to make all new wikis global bot wikis has passed, I would like to re-submit my bot global bot application from September:

In August/September I developed a module+template that adds interwiki links from Wikidata to pages in the Wikimedia Incubator using arbitrary access, as well as a gadget that adds that template to pages. This is done because test wikis in the Wikimedia Incubator can't be connected to Wikidata in the same way that real wikis can. When a new wiki is created, it can some times take days or even weeks for sitelinks from Wikidata to be enabled. When that happens, I will run this bot manually, and it will only be run once per new wiki to add sitelinks to the pages that exist at the date of creation.

The script does two things in tandem: (1) It adds the sitelink to Wikidata, and (2) it removes the template from the page on the local wiki. Therefore I also filled an identical request for bot status on Wikidata, which was approved last month.

Removal of global bot statusEdit

Please see the removal policy for global bots for the requirements that must be met for global bot removal requests.

Bot status requestsEdit

Please add new requests at the bottom of this section.

Removal of bot statusEdit

Requests for removal of the bot status from your own bots can be done here. If a specific user is abusing their bot status, you may request removal of the status on their account here as well. Please be sure to provide a short explanation on the current situation, along with links to the bot's contribution and an announcement in your community of the abuse. Previous requests are archived.

Inactive bot@lo.wikipediaEdit

Please remove bot flag form this bot account. Because it inactive for many years. This is a list: AlleborgoBot, BotMultichill, Idioma-bot, PipepBot, Purbo T, TechBot, TuinuiBot, Vagobot, YurikBot and Maintenance script. Thanks. --Lookruk 💬 (Talk) 07:39, 1 December 2022 (UTC)
