botbit removed because doubt was stated at nl:Wikipedia:Aanmelding_botgebruikers#Gebruiker:RoboDick. oscar 23:54, 15 January 2006 (UTC)

There is no good reason for that. There has not been stated a single complaint about its edits. There was just one user stating that Dutchy-Dick is not that experienced. But the robot-edits were OK. He runs a multilogon interwiki robot and I help him configuring it. It works well. Jcb 12:03, 16 January 2006 (UTC)
there is however a very good reason. at the top of this page it is clearly stated: please remember - your bot must first be accepted by the local community. no community support has been given on nl:, merely 1 person expressing support (you Jcb) and 1 person expressing doubt just recently. oscar 23:26, 16 January 2006 (UTC)
The other user canceled his doubt, so please restore the botbit. Please don't apply your supposed new procedure on old cases. Jcb 08:34, 17 January 2006 (UTC)
done, there is support now. oscar 14:57, 18 January 2006 (UTC)

Chlewey (Carlos Th) asks for both status to es:Usuario:Chlewbot at w:es: (announced at es:Wikipedia:Café#Registro de nuevo bot). As interwikis is a probable task, I will later ask for bot status in other wikipedias. I am also interested in running the bot in other wikimedia projects in Spanish language. — Chlewey 05:44, 25 November 2005 (UTC)

PD. And I will also be asking for bot status on them.

Consider renaming the bot on pl. Chlewbot doesn't sound too nice in Polish. tsca 14:54, 30 November 2005 (UTC)

third update: a minor complain in fr: has been solved. There have been so far no complains in any of the wikipedias. I have got two formal okays: sv: and zh: and one aproval: fi:.

The request was allready archived. You can read it here. Jcb 16:18, 13 January 2006 (UTC)
I don't understand. The only links you give are the user talk pages (of which one isn't even on the wiki in question). Is there a local village pump where the bot has been announced? Jon Harald Søby 18:17, 13 January 2006 (UTC)
This is the situation; nl:gebruiker:Jcb sometimes is active on JBO-wiki with his bot. He has receive a request from jbo:user:Piere on his talk page (see talk page) from Piere of JBO-wiki. Piere is one of the 2 sysops of JBO and the only bureaucrat there. Jcb has put a notice on the talk page of Piere (see jbo:User_talk:Pier#RobotJcb) on 26 december. Look at the RC of JBO. That is a near dead wiki. It is not incorrect to regard Piere to be able to speek in the name of the "community" for so far it exist.
I have informed Jcb that he could make a "Request for botstatus page" on JBO and ask it formally again there. I see in this case no problem in granting bot status directly. A new request to the "community" of jbo will only be for show. --Walter 00:48, 14 January 2006 (UTC)
a quote from the top of this page: "... but please remember - your bot must first be accepted by the local community". imo this means that if either community or support are missing, RobotJcb can still work on jbo as much as he wishes to, but (for now) simply without a botbit, meaning: without being concealed in the normal rc. a proper request is never "for show" but a serious matter, please don't start handing out permissions or botbits without conforming to policy. what's the hurry anyway? oscar 03:16, 14 January 2006 (UTC)
For me there is no hurry, I expect to do about one or two single botedits every month there. The only reason to apply for a botbit was there request on my talkpage. For me there is no problem. Jcb 17:53, 14 January 2006 (UTC)


I would like to ask for a bot status at Polish Wikipedia (for now). In future, I'd also like to use it at Commons to copy images there. I've requested it at pl:Dyskusja Wikipedii:Boty na polskiej Wikipedii, however at pl: people usually don't comment such requests at all. I'll mostly help with user-requested tasks, as well as with generating rambot-like town articles. The bot is a clone of pl:User:Tawbot. Ausir 23:40, 19 December 2005 (UTC)

Some of the wiki's users have explicitly left messages on my talk page asking me to get this status. The bot has been running on most of the larger wikies since July, and on ru: since March. --Yurik 03:05, 27 November 2005 (UTC)

please add links to your local requests first, and link them to this request, thanks. (see requirements at the top of this page) oscar 15:46, 14 December 2005 (UTC)
Added several links, in process of adding more. Please note that all of the above sites are very very small, and very often have just a few people semi-activelly participating. --Yurik 17:49, 20 December 2005 (UTC)
  • Why do you feel that bot status is needed in arabic wiki at this stage, I get the function of this bot, but we do you feel that the work size at requires a bot status. We have some rtl problems and it is worth if a demo is staged on arabic wiki first. --Tarawneh 22:55, 24 December 2005 (UTC) (sysop)
I will perform a demo run on ar:. You will see it in your recent changes log. --Yurik 10:01, 25 December 2005 (UTC)
  • Still, we need more feed back, we almost have 10000 page. Do you need a botstat for such work size, and if yes, for how long?. Also, we need feed back on questions left on your talk page --Tarawneh 04:13, 30 December 2005 (UTC) (sysop)
Bot status simlpy removes edits done by the bot from the recent changes list (unless explicitly requested). The bot itself does not need this status to run, but it usually helps other users because they don't want to see tons of bot edits in the recent changes list. In other words, if you want everyone to always see changes without the ability to hide them, i can continue running the bot as is. If, on the other hand (like everyone else in the wiki-world, you would rather not see trusted bot's changes, mark YurikBot as bot, and it will dissappear. Its not mandatory, but people tend to like it. Also, the bot status is perpetual (you would want the interwiki updated all the time (i presume), not just once. --Yurik 22:54, 3 January 2006 (UTC)

I'd like to have a bot flag for SR wiki, because it is my home wiki and most of the job will be done there. The bot's supposed to be for interwikiing and doing some maintenance tasks. The poll is here.

Also, I'd like bot flags on some other projects:

The bots in these projects are only for interwiki fixing...

Also, I've been blocked on sl: since I was working without a bot flag, so if someone could arrange voting there or something, it would be great. --Dungodung 10:54, 16 December 2005 (UTC)

Datrio gave me the flag for sr: --Dungodung 11:03, 17 December 2005 (UTC)
Done on mk and hr, still waiting for the other wikis to confirm there's no problem with the bot. Datrio 15:09, 18 December 2005 (UTC)
Datrio finished off the other four wikis (ro, sh, bs & bg). Everything's settled now. --Dungodung 12:30, 22 December 2005 (UTC)
