Steward requests/Bot status/2007-04


I request that w:lad:User:YonaBot get a bot flag on the Ladino Wikipedia and Haitian Wikipedia:

There's no active community on both from what I can see. The three bureaucrats on Ladino are all inactive (the least inactive has been so for six months) and on the Haitian one there's one sysop who hasn't really been active in the past three months (a look at the RC shows that most edits were made by the bot). Thank you! Yonatanh 02:34, 18 April 2007 (UTC)

  Done guillom 13:41, 23 April 2007 (UTC)


I request that be:User:Escarbot get a bot flag on the Belarus Wikipedia:


I had a bot flag on the former be: Wikipedia. On the new be: Wikipedia, all former accounts have been deleted, and there is no bureaucrat yet, so I was asked to stop my bot until it has the bot flag.

See fr:Discussion_Utilisateur:Vargenau#Belorussian_wikipedia

Please give me my bot flag again so that I can continue working.

Thank you! Vargenau 15:03, 18 April 2007 (UTC)

I request that w:an:User:YonaBot get a bot flag on the Aragones Wikipedia:

Please note that the only active sysop has supported the bot and that the bot is already running on over 20 languages (I think) without any problems. The bureaucrat on that wiki is inactive and as you can see, the two users who were the only voters in the last couple of bot requests have already supported it. Thank you!

Hi, I pl:Wikipedysta:Bocianski, request that my bot be:Удзельнік get a bot flag on be:wp. I requested on be-wiki diff, admin asked me to put request here and made site for local requests. Local Requests will be there.

Purpose - simply adding interwiki with pywikipedia framework. Bot have a botflags on 10 wiki: pl, ru, sv, sk, uk, de, fr, es, en, be-x-old and it registered without flag on 1 wiki (nl). 17:51, 28 April 2007 (UTC)

I, fr:User:Darkoneko, request that my bot be:User:Loveless get a bot flag on be:wp:

This account will only be used for interwiki-ing using pywikipedia's (exept upon request from said wiki, in which case I'd gladly use other pywikipedia scripts to help them). I'll probably ask for bot status on some other wikis in a near future.

Thank you! DarkoNeko 15:20, 28 April 2007 (UTC)

While this is not a real bot account, I request that User:DDima get a bot flag on the Belarusian Wikipedia. This will allow me (a temporary two-week administrator) to delete unnecessary pages which resulted from the move of articles from the Wikimedia Incubator. I will be supervising each deletion to make sure it does not get out of hand.:

Here is the relevant community discussion link for attaining bot status for my account. Thank you! —dima/s-ko/ 21:23, 16 April 2007 (UTC)

Support this, would be a useful thing as there are no permanent admins there at the moment. Yury Tarasievich 05:41, 18 April 2007 (UTC)

I request that hy:User:YonaBot get a bot flag on the Armenian Wikipedia:

Thank you! The Bot has been voted for, and approved by the local community according to the set policy. The voting period has ended today with clear majority support. This request is made by a member of the local community, not the actual bot owner. Please give the bot a flag on hy: Teak 19:15, 4 May 2007 (UTC)

Hello, I need someone to apply the decision of giving the bot status to an:User:Loveless, as they don't seems to have local bureaucrat. (link to request on an:wp - link to "ask on meta" message) (I could do it myself, but since it's my bot I prefer not to)

Thanks you :)

I request that be:User:Robbot gets a bot flag on the Belarusian Wikipedia:

I'm one of admins, and I'm putting this request instead of the owner, because it seems the owner (be:user:Andre Engels) can't be reached currently. Yury Tarasievich 13:00, 4 May 2007 (UTC)

err... I'd like to know why your request link is a category talk page. isn't this kind of things usually in the wikipedia namespace ?
DarkoNeko 22:54, 28 April 2007 (UTC)
suggest me a better place -- 05:41, 29 April 2007 (UTC)
It is common to use an existing request page, such as to:Project:Administrators, where none exists for the particular flag you're looking for. —{admin} Pathoschild 19:33:43, 29 April 2007 (UTC)

Ok.Please, see request page.--OsamaK 18:26, 26 April 2007 (UTC)
You could specify what you need the bot flag for, exactly. It's neither here or on the local request page. DarkoNeko 22:51, 28 April 2007 (UTC)
for uesing "AutoWikiBrowser" (replase Category, etc..)--OsamaK 10:36, 2 May 2007 (UTC)
I can say that Osama is a very good user and he is using his bot to do miscellanea jobs around the projects. so no harm in giving the flag imho..that goes also for the request below.--The Joke النكتة‎ 12:12, 4 May 2007 (UTC)
