Global bot status for MagnusA.Bot

Moved back from the Bot Status Request section.
Previously ===MagnusA.Bot@svwikipedia===.

Thank you! MagnusA 06:50, 18 November 2008 (UTC)

  Not done This must you ask to the locals, see w:sv:Wikipedia:Robotansökan --Walter 22:21, 11 December 2008 (UTC)
Why has my (and others) request been moved from "Global bot requests" to "Bot requests"? --MagnusA 15:17, 12 December 2008 (UTC)
This application was meant as an application for global bot status but for some reason (accidently or vandalism) it looks like it was moved into the bot status request section. As this was wrong I make another try (with a template that was inserted after my application some weeks ago). Regards --MagnusA 16:46, 12 December 2008 (UTC)
  Done - --Walter 17:44, 12 December 2008 (UTC)
A possible reason why it was moved it because you used the format MagnusA.Bot@svwikipedia. By specifying that it is svwikipedia, what makes not difference for a global bot, it looked like you asked it for the svwikipedia. But that information was useful for me becuase that bot does not exist on meta so I needed the change the user rights via the svwikipedia account --Walter 18:03, 12 December 2008 (UTC)
Thank you very much, both for the positive treatment of my application and the possible reason for the move. :-) --MagnusA 20:32, 12 December 2008 (UTC)

This bot was already approved locally and the only bureaucrat is inactive. --Lucas Nunes (talk) 12:24, 30 November 2008 (UTC)

Have you tried emailing the inactive bureaucrat? I know he's available. He just might not be following the wiki actively. --FiliP × 09:39, 3 December 2008 (UTC)
Just see this link. The bot was approved and he said that I have to ask here for bot flag. --Lucas Nunes (talk) 22:12, 4 December 2008 (UTC)
  Done - The local bureaucrat has been absent for a long time. - Andre Engels 16:01, 5 December 2008 (UTC)

Thank you! Vorhon 10:20, 15 December 2008 (UTC)

  Done It might be a good time to find an extra bureaucrat for this wiki as Dbl2010 hasn't been there for some time. Angela 12:54, 15 December 2008 (UTC)

The bot is active, but there is no flag for it, Making recentchanges page somewhat messy --Ali 15:27, 8 October 2008 (UTC)

Please make a request on that wiki, wait one to two weeks and ask here again. Regards, —DerHexer (Talk) 19:37, 28 October 2008 (UTC)

  Progress report? Hello, please let us know if You have done so, if nothing further is heard this request will close in about a week, thanks, --birdy geimfyglið (:> )=| 22:42, 22 November 2008 (UTC)

Hmm, I'd nevertheless prefer a request on nrm:wp. What do other stewards think? Regards, —DerHexer (Talk) 19:57, 28 October 2008 (UTC)
Done. --Julian 10:10, 31 October 2008 (UTC)
No response yet to bot discussion but that discussion was left on the talk page of the nrm main page and was in English. So I'm not sure if that is valid. At the very least a local translation is needed on that wiki. --Daniel Mayer 17:08, 8 November 2008 (UTC)

Hello, is this still open? The user has global bot status and has global bots implemented, best regards, --birdy geimfyglið (:> )=| 03:37, 22 November 2008 (UTC)

  Progress report? If nothing further is heard this request will close in about a week from now, thanks, --birdy geimfyglið (:> )=| 10:08, 23 November 2008 (UTC)

  Not done No standard bot policy, so you'll have to make a local announcement & wait for discussion first. - Andre Engels 16:03, 5 December 2008 (UTC)
There was no place to be found for an announcement, when I last looked, else I'd done that, and/or proposed the standard bot policy, respectively. I need help in finding a/the right place. --Purodha Blissenbach 00:21, 6 December 2008 (UTC)
I think this page; w:arz:ويكيبيديا مصرى:صالون المناقشه , is the village pump. Try there. --Walter 23:25, 11 December 2008 (UTC)

Thank you and All the Best! Mifter 22:36, 29 November 2008 (UTC)

  •   Comment This is not a request for global bot but for a local bot flag only, I currently do not have any plans to have my bot start doing Interwikis on any other wikis. All the Best, --Mifter 23:32, 8 December 2008 (UTC)
    •   Not done In that case, one of the bureaucrats on simple.wikipedia can do this for you. Angela 10:36, 13 December 2008 (UTC)

Thank you! Hugo.arg 16:11, 16 December 2008 (UTC)

  Done This request seems to have been made in August... (yo:Wikipedia:Bot_policy#Idioma-bot ) but I see no reason not to grant this. ++Lar: t/c 14:11, 17 December 2008 (UTC)
PS, Hugo.arg, what's the story on yo:user:WikiDreamer Bot ?? that request is about the same time but the global info shows it operating but not with the flag... thx for any info on that. ++Lar: t/c 14:32, 17 December 2008 (UTC)
Wikidreamer Bot was a global bot, but his status was revoked by Darkoneko after his flag was removed on his home wikipedia because he was using a one year old version of Pywikipedia. --Hercule 16:26, 18 December 2008 (UTC)
