Global bot status requests

Global bot status for Dexbot

Thanks Amir (talk) 08:52, 2 May 2012 (UTC)

  Done per [1] and [2]. By the way, I noticed that your bot adds wrong interwikis when creating its user talk page globally (you have to put the lang link for every project except the one you're editing, that's why it's showing a bold link on the bot's user pages. Moreover, please use this global bot status for interwiki purposes only on projects you don't have the bot flag locally for an other specified task. Thanks. -- Quentinv57 (talk) 09:11, 2 May 2012 (UTC)
Thanks and I'll do itAmir (talk) 10:21, 2 May 2012 (UTC)

Global bot status for CeraBot

That's not the case. Bot has been active for 22 days apparently, and has 2.4k edits, clearly not a viable candidate for Global Bot. Snowolf How can I help? 22:59, 5 May 2012 (UTC)

Global bot status for DEagleBot

--Dark Eagle (talk) 16:12, 15 May 2012 (UTC)

Some kind of a general sentence surrounding a request is usually useful and appreciated. -Barras talk 11:29, 16 May 2012 (UTC)
On a second look, the bot only has something like 26,000 edits. We usually want to see quite some more edits before granting this flag. -Barras talk 11:33, 16 May 2012 (UTC)
I agree with Barras. Moreover, the majority of this edits have been performed seven months ago. I would advise to restart the bot for some weeks before requesting bot status. Please see my comment below, on the Bot status requests section. -- Quentinv57 (talk) 08:48, 18 May 2012 (UTC)
  • Marking as   Not done for the time being. Please follow Quentinv57's advice and come back when the bot has more recent activity. -Barras talk 10:46, 21 May 2012 (UTC)

The bot need flag for run in no@wikipedia and have 31 edits and now is block.Regards Javadyou (talk) 06:36, 6 May 2012 (UTC)

Hello. Your bot has been blocked on this wiki, please solve that first. -- Quentinv57 (talk) 22:37, 7 May 2012 (UTC)
Quentin, the block log states 4. mai 2012 kl. 17:25 Cocu (Diskusjon | bidrag) blokkerte JYBot (Diskusjon | bidrag) med en varighet på 2 uker (autoblokkering slått av) (Please request bot-access or global bot) - it was blocked because it does not have the bot flag and will probably not be unblocked until it has the bot flag. The Helpful One 10:24, 9 May 2012 (UTC)
I know. But he has to solve it with the local sysop who blocked him before I grant the status. Did you see the comment he left on the local request ? To me it sounds like an oppose, so I prefer to be sure at first. -- Quentinv57 (talk) 11:21, 9 May 2012 (UTC)
  Comment: The Norwegian WP doesn't allow automatic approval, so this probably needs to be handled locally at no:Project talk:Roboter#JYBot. Jafeluv (talk) 11:16, 9 May 2012 (UTC)
no.wikipedia also doesn't allow local botflag for interwiki bots, if the bot owners doesn't know norwegian. Only global botflag is allowed. Request   Not done Laaknor (talk) 11:27, 9 May 2012 (UTC)

I requested for a bot flag almost 1 year ago, but no one replied (and I didn't post here because it slipped my mind :P). The bot does interwiki edits (already have a Global Bot flag). Thanks! --Hydriz (talk) 10:11, 9 May 2012 (UTC)

In one week ? You just opened the request yesterday... -- Quentinv57 (talk) 08:31, 6 May 2012 (UTC)
@ Quentinv57 : Actually I believe that Ceradon created the request on April 26th without being logged in (see [5])… That's why Snowolf corrected the date in the request. Toto Azéro follow the guide ! 10:15, 6 May 2012 (UTC)
You are indeed correct. Snowolf How can I help? 10:16, 6 May 2012 (UTC)
Thanks for the rectification. But it does not matter much, the bot has made only two edits, which is clearly not sufficient for me to grant a bot status at this stage. Plus the owner does not clearly state in the request what he intend to do and not to do with his bot. -- Quentinv57 (talk) 10:18, 6 May 2012 (UTC)
  Not done The bot still has three edits, which is clearly not sufficient to judge if an interwiki bot is working properly. Please make at least 80 contributions and reapply then. Cordially, -- Quentinv57 (talk) 17:26, 29 May 2012 (UTC)


iw bot --Dark Eagle (talk) 16:30, 15 May 2012 (UTC)

Hello. The only contributions your bot made the last 7 months are two edits on its user page. As interwikis and have evolved in the last months, I think it would be more appropriate to restart the bot for one or two week, and to check that it's still working properly. Thanks. -- Quentinv57 (talk) 08:43, 18 May 2012 (UTC)
I always hold my pywikipedia folder updated... so, in few days I'll do it, now I'm a bit busy --Dark Eagle (talk) 22:13, 20 May 2012 (UTC)
  Not done There is still no edit outside of the user namespace for the last two years. Please make some more edits to show your bot works and open a new request. Cordially, -- Quentinv57 (talk) 07:27, 28 May 2012 (UTC)

Err....I overran the recent change and has been requested to stop until a bot flag is granted[7]....Although no blockage has been given.Justincheng12345 (talk) 09:08, 20 May 2012 (UTC)
Hmmm... I never said you to perform 1000 test edits, 100/200 is enough. Moreover, I would advise you for next time to run your bot in slow mode (10 edits by hour max) to show that your bot works properly without flooding the recent changes. -- Quentinv57 (talk) 10:38, 20 May 2012 (UTC)
