Global bot requests

Global bot status for ArthurBot

Thank you! Best regards, Mercy 13:35, 17 December 2008 (UTC)

  Done.--Jusjih 01:18, 5 January 2009 (UTC)

Global bot status for DirlBot

Thank you! Chesnok 14:18, 18 December 2008 (UTC)

  Done.--Jusjih 20:09, 11 January 2009 (UTC)

Global bot status for DorganBot

Dorgan 22:36, 12 December 2008 (UTC)

You appear to have some unattached accounts, is that an issue? Also, the bot appears to have a block on de:wikinews: [1] ... is it possible to get this resolved before the global flag is granted. ++Lar: t/c 02:18, 20 December 2008 (UTC)
I tried to resolve it, but I couldn't. See this for further information. Regards, Dorgan 13:53, 22 December 2008 (UTC)
I can't see any unattached in centralAuth, maybe he solved that by now, best regards, --birdy geimfyglið (:> )=| 10:53, 10 January 2009 (UTC)
  Done. Please avoid de:wikinews completely until the issue of where links should be placed, and whether your bot can operate there at all, is resolved. ++Lar: t/c 05:53, 14 January 2009 (UTC)

Global bot status for Chobot

Thank you! ChongDae 04:34, 21 December 2008 (UTC)

  Done ++Lar: t/c 05:55, 14 January 2009 (UTC)

Global bot status for Broadbot

Thank you! Broadbeer 16:06, 28 December 2008 (UTC)

The edits tool is reporting you have several unattached accounts, but there's 15 day lag on the server. However CentralAuth also shows that the same accounts are not attached. Could you attach those accounts please? It doesn't PREVENT adding the flag but it would be tidier. ++Lar: t/c 05:59, 14 January 2009 (UTC)
PS - Note that you're also not attached on Meta. That makes granting a tiny bit more work, as the autolink doesn't work, we have to figure out a wiki where you are and change the entry field to that wiki. Please remember to be attached on Meta if at all possible. ++Lar: t/c 06:01, 14 January 2009 (UTC)
O.o are we looking at the same user? I don't see any unattached there at least :S Best regards, --birdy geimfyglið (:> )=| 06:03, 14 January 2009 (UTC)
I think so, the link I gave to Luxo's contribs tool shows el.wikipedia.org and en.wikibooks.org (among others) as not unified but with edits that look like bot edits to me. (for example: # 2008-12-17T11:28:48 ( hist ) ( diff ) m Λόλα Πανιάνι (4 579 Bytes) (robot Adding: da:Lola Pagnani)) Special:CentralAuth/Broadbot does not have those accounts listed at all. ++Lar: t/c 06:10, 14 January 2009 (UTC)
Only looked at one wiki now, but I think they might be imported edits [2], [3], best regards, --birdy geimfyglið (:> )=| 06:15, 14 January 2009 (UTC)
  Done But please do look into this if you get a chance, Broadbeer... thanks. ++Lar: t/c 06:31, 14 January 2009 (UTC)

Global bot status for WeggeBot

Thank you! /Wegge 18:59, 28 December 2008 (UTC)

As above, please unify to Meta. ++Lar: t/c 06:03, 14 January 2009 (UTC)
Unless I misunderstand the request, that should be done now. -- /Wegge 23:25, 14 January 2009 (UTC)
(You got it right! :) )   Done ++Lar: t/c 05:05, 15 January 2009 (UTC)

Global bot status for Xqbot

Thank you! Xqt 17:10, 3 January 2009 (UTC)

Luxo's tool shows unattached (itwiki, plwiki, zhwiki) but in this case, CentralAuth shows attachments for those. Defer for other views. ++Lar: t/c 06:07, 14 January 2009 (UTC)
The TS will not work correctly for these tools until february, so I was told :S In general, centralAuth is prefered (for us) since it shows the correct status, is up to date and for example does not list unattached ones on closed wikis, which can't be merged anyway, best regards, --birdy geimfyglið (:> )=| 06:11, 14 January 2009 (UTC)
Thanks, Birdy ++Lar: t/c 05:09, 15 January 2009 (UTC)
  Done ++Lar: t/c 05:09, 15 January 2009 (UTC)

Global bot status for SpillingBot

Thank you! SpillingBot 01:15, 11 January 2009 (UTC)

  Done (note: requester is User:Jóna Þórunn). Jon Harald Søby 09:41, 14 January 2009 (UTC)

Global bot status for BodhisattvaBot

Thanks Dalibor Bosits 15:26, 16 January 2009 (UTC)

This looks like a reasonable request for a long-standing bot. -- sj | help translate |+ 02:27, 22 January 2009 (UTC)

Global bot status for GhalyBot

Thank you! Ghaly 13:18, 22 January 2009 (UTC)

According to this tool your bot account is not global and only has 370 edits. Multichill 23:29, 23 January 2009 (UTC)
  • The bot edits on arz are not included in this tool ,But the reason I wrote here is that ;I am sking for my Bot to be global , if possible , please. Many thanks.--Ghaly 09:06, 24 January 2009 (UTC)
  •   Not done More edits needed on other wikis to establish trustworthiness and well-executed bot code. --Daniel Mayer (mav) 19:09, 24 January 2009 (UTC)

Global bot status for Nallimbot

Thank you! Adrenalin 20:01, 21 January 2009 (UTC)

Seems to check out. No blocks, plenty of interwiki bot changes, lots of accounts already flagged as bots. Wait a few more days to allow more comments but I don't think this will be an issue. --Daniel Mayer (mav) 19:01, 24 January 2009 (UTC)
This bot is a great bot that would definitely benefit from the global bot flag. Definitely would do good to the Wikipedia system. Razorflame 04:47, 25 January 2009 (UTC)
Granted. - Andre Engels 08:22, 28 January 2009 (UTC)

No problem, I can totally do that. -Djsasso 02:28, 22 January 2009 (UTC)
Crat asked to act. Give him a week to respond. That will also give the community more time to comment on the request - one yes and no opposes is a bit less support than I'd like to see. --Daniel Mayer (mav) 19:19, 24 January 2009 (UTC)
Yup, that is what we are doing per the comment above. -Djsasso 20:14, 24 January 2009 (UTC)
