Global bot requests

Global bot status for НСБот

Thank you! Nikola 19:37, 16 January 2009 (UTC)

Your request sounds reasonable to me, unless I'm overlooking something! We usually let these sit a few days (I let them go a week) before approving them. ++Lar: t/c 07:14, 18 January 2009 (UTC)
Looks like this isn't allowed according to Bot_policy#Global_bots. Multichill 22:52, 22 January 2009 (UTC)
I think I am failing to see something; please tell us what part of the policy would be violated by grating global bot access to this bot? The bot already appears to be operating as a bot on multiple wikis by fixing interwiki links... Some category fixes as well, but I think that is fine so long as the policy of the host wiki is followed. --Daniel Mayer (mav) 18:51, 24 January 2009 (UTC)
Hello, I guess he is refering to [2] ([3]) and the global bot policy demands, that "the bot must already be active on several wikis, with long-term contributions to back up its trustworthiness.", therefore I'd mark it as   Not done too, best regards, --birdy geimfyglið (:> )=| 18:54, 24 January 2009 (UTC)
I see - so all that is needed are some additional bot edits to other wikis? That seems reasonable. --Daniel Mayer (mav) 19:07, 24 January 2009 (UTC)
Not some, but how I understand the policy, with long-term contributions they should be quite a lot and going on for quite some time, best regards, --birdy geimfyglið (:> )=| 19:17, 24 January 2009 (UTC)
No. Global bots are only allowed to work on interwiki's and double redirects, see Bot_policy#Global_bots. Multichill 17:28, 26 January 2009 (UTC)
Understood. I guess this thread can be archived as not done. --Daniel Mayer (mav) 00:50, 30 January 2009 (UTC)
So, should I do this without the bot flag, or should I just leave all the links to rot? Nikola 09:16, 1 February 2009 (UTC)
Status now updated. --Daniel Mayer (mav) 15:22, 1 February 2009 (UTC)

Global bot status for Interwicket

Interwicket is written specifically for the Wiktionaries. It does not have a lot of the overhead and server load of interwiki.py which was written for the wikipedia. The task on the wikts is simpler, as it only needs to match page titles, not attempt recursive translations with hints. en:wikt:User:Interwicket/code

Has been running for a long time on the en.wikt, with almost 500K edits. I added a function to add the reciprocal iwiki links on other wikts; and then a little birdy (that seems to be following me everywhere ;-) convinced me to add all of the links that it "knows" of, given its reading of the indexes and entries.

Has been tested on pl.wikt (which puts iwikis in the entry differently; and also does not always link to ru.wikt). Follows policy (or default) for links to redirects on all wikts; it does not add or remove links to redirects except where a policy of linking to them is affirmatively known (en, sw, 3 others tbc). Is paced, max aggregate (all wikts) edit rate controlled; uses server maxlag=2 (very conservative setting) backing off when the servers are lagged.

Present status on all wikts: en:wikt:User:Interwicket/FL status

Thank you! Robert Ullmann 13:13, 30 January 2009 (UTC)

Comment - Edits on 9 wikis but 7 of those are not attached to the global account. Please attach as many of those as you can b/c a global bot flag will not help you with those until you do. I'd also like to see you successfully get bot access for the account on more than one wiki and have more edits in wikis other than the English Wiktionary. --Daniel Mayer (mav) 00:11, 1 February 2009 (UTC)
Hi, please note that the toolserver is lagged 33+ days for most wikts (!). There are 110 accounts attached now; the bot reports its own status in en:wikt:User:Interwicket/FL status if you would kindly refer to that? It has bot flags for (en, et, lt, no, pt, simple, sv), ko approved (waiting for 7 days, 4 Feb), others in discussion. Robert Ullmann 08:47, 1 February 2009 (UTC)
The global account has 0 unattached accounts (see centralauth), please don't rely on the toolservers, best regards, --birdy geimfyglið (:> )=| 11:02, 1 February 2009 (UTC)
Understood. How about the other issues I mentioned? --Daniel Mayer (mav) 15:36, 1 February 2009 (UTC)
Asked same question on IRC and birdy and Thogo both agreed that granting access would be OK. Done. --Daniel Mayer (mav) 15:44, 1 February 2009 (UTC)

Global bot status for Darkicebot

      • I won't be using my bot to add interwiki links to wiktionary pages. I was just testing out how it worked and made 2 edits to the English Wiktionary by mistake and wasn't able to revert it in time before I got blocked. Sorry for the confusion about this. Furthermore, unlike other people, I cannot run my bot constantly as it takes away from my ability to quickly edit pages and because I cannot run my computer all the time as I cannot leave the computer on all the time. Also, my bot is not hosted on the toolserver, so it can't run 24 hours a day and 7 days a week. Another point I would like to mention is that I was completely inactive on all Wikipedias for a period of 2 months between March and May 2008 and August and December of 2008, so therefore, I think that 7,200 edits is a decent amount in that period of time with all of the constrictions that are placed against me. I would try to fix the block on the English Wiktionary, however, I would rather let that block stand as I have already told the blocking administrator that I have no plans or intentions of running my bot on that Wiktionary again. Cheers, Razorflame 03:58, 28 January 2009 (UTC)
        • The block on the English wiktionary was because the interwiki.py bot usually does not link to redirects, while en.wikt policy is to link to them; it is possible to run it with options that work (VolkovBot does this), but I'm not sure what they are. So when iwiki bots turn up (testing is good!) they tend to get blocked quickly. The block does not reflect on the bot operator. In particular, it is not an issue here. (I am the runner of the en.wikt interwiki bot.) Robert Ullmann 11:55, 28 January 2009 (UTC)
  • Could other Stewards comment? I'm inclined to grant the request but this seems borderline per Laaknor's comment. --Daniel Mayer (mav) 00:30, 1 February 2009 (UTC)
    • I'm also inclined to grant the request.--Jusjih 01:38, 1 February 2009 (UTC)
    • I'm not opposing the request, but I think the policy should be more clear on this matter, and what "long term contribs" mean. Laaknor 08:53, 1 February 2009 (UTC)
    • I'd tend to agree with Laaknor, but he can apply later again. I am quite surprised by the block-options for the bot in the block in en.wikt. why was he blocked like that, they should please uncheck the first two options for non vandals, thanks, --birdy geimfyglið (:> )=| 10:59, 1 February 2009 (UTC)
      • I think you are reading too much into it; I don't know what EP (blocking admin) was thinking exactly, but I would not have bothered unchecking them either: neither will have any effect on the bot runner. It isn't likely that the bot account will be trying to create another account, and the IP autoblock won't affect the runner with an established login. Since this is some kind of issue that it shouldn't be, block removed. (understanding that it shouldn't be run on en.wikt, but runner knows that) Robert Ullmann 09:14, 2 February 2009 (UTC)
        • I am not reading anything into anything, I was just saying the block options were incorrect, there is a reason why they exist, and to say that he will not create an account anyway or will not choose to edit there as anon is a bit arrogant imho. He should be free to choose himself to create as many accounts as he likes (if he does not abuse them) or edit as anon whenever he wishes, which is why I was surprised by such block-practice - no offence. Best regards, --birdy geimfyglið (:> )=| 17:48, 2 February 2009 (UTC)
    • Birdy clarified on IRC that the statement above is an oppose. I'd like others to comment b/c this looks like a borderline case. --Daniel Mayer (mav) 15:56, 1 February 2009 (UTC)
  • I'd wait for a while... just for cross-edits amount--Nick1915 - all you want 02:08, 3 February 2009 (UTC)
    Thanks all for adding in your comments on this situation. I will be able to run my bot for long periods of time in a couple of weeks because I am getting my own labtop computer, which I will be able to run for long periods of time while I am in bed because I will be able to leave it on overnight. I should get the laptop sometime within the next 10-15 days (the latest I will have it will be the 17th of February. Until then, I can't run the bot because it takes away from my ability to edit the many Wikimedia Wikis that I edit. Cheers, Razorflame 02:20, 5 February 2009 (UTC)
    Is it OK if you reapply sometime after you restart the bot? I don't think we will be able to reach consensus until we see more data. -- Daniel Mayer (mav) 02:22, 6 February 2009 (UTC)
  • Agree with other stewards that I'd like to see more edits and a clearer understanding of context before being comfortable with granting the global flag. ++Lar: t/c 17:56, 6 February 2009 (UTC)
    OK - now marked as not done. I encourage Razorflame to reapply once the bot has more edits and time. --Daniel Mayer (mav) 21:42, 7 February 2009 (UTC)

Global bot status for GhalyBot (2)

Thank you! Ghaly 14:33, 3 February 2009 (UTC)

I'm not sure what is up with the SUL util, but everything else seems to check out; plenty of edits, local bot flags & time for me. Wait a few more days for others to comment. --Daniel Mayer (mav) 04:20, 4 February 2009 (UTC)
  • Thanks very much , the bot has eleven flags now , looking forward to your approval.--Ghaly 10:12, 7 February 2009 (UTC)


Global bot status for MastiBot

Thank you! Masti 18:46, 7 February 2009 (UTC)

Hello Masti, to me it seems that Your bot does not yet meet the requirements as not being active over many wikis for some time (besides creating userpages on many wikis), so I would say not yet atm. Other opinions welcome as always. Best regards, --birdy geimfyglið (:> )=| 04:59, 8 February 2009 (UTC)
I agree. --Daniel Mayer (mav) 00:11, 9 February 2009 (UTC)
formally speaking You both are right. The bot has a flag on wikis: pl, es, ss, als, szl, pl.wiktionary, pl,wikibooks etc. all togther 242k edits. If you need some edits on any wiki no problem. It;s a standard pywikibot. I can do it. The reason I have not done it before is simple. Do not want to clutter OZ on small wikis Masti 20:51, 9 February 2009 (UTC)
The reason for this requirement is not only to get to know the operators trustworthyness (because we can't possibly know every editor; I know You are trustworthy though, Masti ;) ), but also only if the bot is used in a lots of wikis it makes sense to have a global botflag (imho). Please note, that also with global botflag You will have to respect and fulfill the local wikis requirements for running there.
Since Mav and You seem to agree I mark this as not done now, but You can request this again of course when Your bot spreads to other projects. Best regards, --birdy geimfyglið (:> )=| 20:58, 9 February 2009 (UTC)
OK :) Masti 12:44, 10 February 2009 (UTC)


Global bot status for Darkicebot (2)

Since the last time that I requested the global bot flag, my bot has made more than 10,000 more edits. See the contributions for Darkicebot on en.wikipedia, de.wikipedia, fr.wikipedia, it.wikipedia, nl.wikipedia, pl.wikipedia, pt.wikipedia, simple.wikipedia, and several other wikipedias for the complete edit count. The SUL utility tool says that my bot has only made 13,900 edits, but this is actually incorrect. I've made closer to around 30-35,000 edits now. I currently have bot flags on simple, it, es, fr, az, en, de, pt, bs, vec, ca, sv, vo, uk, ru, az, ar, ku, he, nl, hu, fi, eo, sk, ja, gl, vi, zh, pl, oc, id, an, jv, sr, cy, lb, io, ht, mr, mt, am, ro, et, bn, dv, and gl wikipedias, with many more pending. I believe that I would be able to benefit the other wikipedias more if my bot were global bot flag approved instead of having to go to each page and making an individual bot request there. Darkicebot is an interwiki bot only and has been approved on some of the biggest Wikipedias, including en, fr, es, et, it, ro, ru, ja, and many others. Thank you for your time! Razorflame 07:18, 18 February 2009 (UTC)

Done. —Pathoschild 23:58:41, 20 February 2009 (UTC)

Bot status requests

Rubinbot@viwikipedia

The following discussion is closed.

Nobody responses to the request since it was published on January 20. Bot already has flags on 10 wikis. Thank you! Rubin16 17:05, 28 January 2009 (UTC)

There are 3 local Crats and at least one is active. Give the community more time to respond and for a Crat to act. Steward local bot requests are only for wikis that are too small to have Crats. Not done. --Daniel Mayer (mav) 00:24, 1 February 2009 (UTC)

RoggBot@brwiktionary

Thank you! Roggy 15:46, 28 January 2009 (UTC)

Local request was made a few weeks ago and nobody has commented either way. Only account edits to wiki are in the last few days and there are not many of those for a bot. Bot on two wikis but not that many edits to any wiki, so global seems out of the question. I don't think this request is ready ; more edits are needed over a longer period to prove effective bot code and execution, IMO. I'm inclined to deny request but will wait for input from other Stewards. --Daniel Mayer (mav) 00:18, 1 February 2009 (UTC)
This is a smaller wiki and the bot owner runs from ru.wikt, which is why the bot simply can't have much traffic, the bot works well, but I would like to wait at least one week of activity or for ~100 contributions before granting it, but generally would not deny this request, best regards, --birdy geimfyglið (:> )=| 11:04, 1 February 2009 (UTC)
Understood. Will wait a week. --Daniel Mayer (mav) 15:57, 1 February 2009 (UTC)

It's a standard pywikipedia bot running locally. We're using it as a welcomebot and for cat cleanups. We've no local 'crats, unfortunately, but have standardized bot policy implemented, including auto-approval for certain bots. Community is sparse, unfortunately. This bot has already been perfoming these functions for some time on ga.wikpedia and ga.wiktionary and I've just localized it for Manx. Trials have already been successfully completed and the local request has been live a week now -Gura mie ayd!! / Thank you!! - Alison 22:21, 4 February 2009 (UTC)

Interwicket@ruwiktionary

No local discussion other than request, are (we) in the wrong place requesting on that page in ru.wikt? Should we ask someone specific? In any case, request posted 7 days ago, 191 edits; in compliance AFAIK with ru (and pl) policy. ru.wikt does have a 'crat, but no activity since December. What do you think? Robert Ullmann 00:58, 11 February 2009 (UTC)

I send the local bureaucrat an email, I think he will respond to that (I believe he did in the past or on requests on his talkpage). Best regards, --birdy geimfyglið (:> )=| 01:02, 11 February 2009 (UTC)
Interwicket changed its status report to "bot" for ru.wikt about 40 minutes ago, so he got your email. (The bot reads its own user status with the API, just in case that bit of magic wasn't clear.) So this can be closed as done, thanks! Robert Ullmann 13:31, 11 February 2009 (UTC)

This was already fixed and the bot has already made several more edits that shows that the bot's edit summaries have been fixed. Thanks, Razorflame 22:06, 15 February 2009 (UTC)
As also said, the bot has not yet >100 edits or edits for 1 week (he edits for three days now) and thus I also asked for more edits because of this, please if something is asked of You don't take that as disturbance, but only as help how to fulfill the policy.

If you take a look at the list of wiki's that accept global bots wuu is not one. Global bots are not ok on every wiki. I believe the tool you are referring to shows you as a global bot so it will list that you are a global bot for every wiki, however you still have to check the list of which wiki's allow global bots. -Djsasso 19:31, 21 February 2009 (UTC)

Hello, these bots have 0 contributions (except one bot added some interwikilinks to his userpage) since they registered in May 2008, I find it a bit strange to request botstatus for clearly inactive users :S --birdy geimfyglið (:> )=| 18:25, 24 February 2009 (UTC)
Of course I can't speak for the two other bots. But I was planning to do some categorial work and fix some things up with OwtbBot, but I didn't want to make a mess of the recent changes page, so I waited. --OosWesThoesBes 18:29, 24 February 2009 (UTC)
Hello OosWesThoesBes, I have flaged Your bot as bot, but not the other two, I feel a bit uncomfortable with flagging bots that have not shown any contributions, but then there were some local votes for them, if You still think they should be flagged and have an eye on them, let me know, otherwise I would say rerequest if they become active (there should be no waiting time then, since there are already local requests), best regards, --birdy geimfyglið (:> )=| 01:05, 26 February 2009 (UTC)
I trust the operator (user White Cat) and I often show bots in Recent Changes. Also because the other bot (Alexbot) has been flagged, I think it's better to flag WOPR as well. --OosWesThoesBes 08:24, 26 February 2009 (UTC)

The original request for bot status appears to have followed standard bot policy. Unless there is a community consensus to remove bot status for this bot, then I don't think we can do so. The bot has been inactive for 2 months, so I suggest to wait another 4 months to see if the bot has been inactive for the required 6 months before it is de-botted. Of course, community consensus can be used in the meantime to de-bot. --Daniel Mayer (mav) 16:36, 22 February 2009 (UTC)
