Global bot status requests

Global bot status for User:Addbot

The bot will remove interwiki links from projects where the links can be found on Wikidata as it is rolled out. The code is currently running approved on ENwiki. ·Add§hore· Talk To Me! 23:37, 25 February 2013 (UTC)

I'm afraid your bot does not satisfy the requirements of the global bot policy, namely "the bot must already be active on several wikis, with long-term contributions to back up its trustworthiness." as it is only active on one wiki. Snowolf How can I help? 06:19, 26 February 2013 (UTC)
I found out tonight that a lot of bot request pages have an English translation - there's probably enough so that you can get enough for a global bot. --Rschen7754 10:06, 26 February 2013 (UTC)
Currently running on EN and HE wiki and in the new few days this is likely to grow further. The code used in the global section of the bot is the same as the code that has so far made nearly 500,000 edits on EN wiki and is currently running across every article in HE wiki. The only thing that changes in this code from language to language is the edit summary. ·Add§hore· Talk To Me! 14:08, 26 February 2013 (UTC)
Please see completed run at w:he:מיוחד:תרומות/Addbot. Looking to be ready to deal with the rollout of wikidata in a weeks time. ·Add§hore· Talk To Me! 06:53, 27 February 2013 (UTC)
Will your bot only remove interwikis from the main namespace? Regards. --invadinado (TALK - SUL) 12:01, 4 March 2013 (UTC)
No, any namespace that is included on wikidata (Article, cats, templates and project) ·Add§hore· Talk To Me! 16:18, 5 March 2013 (UTC)

Global bot status for Legobot

Legobot tag-teams with Addbot on enwp and hewp right now on removing interwiki links. It's a bit slower but is more thorough, since it checks for redirects and imports onto Wikidata. The code has been significantly tested outside of those two wikis with my webtool, and other wikidata bot tasks. Legoktm (talk) 07:13, 27 February 2013 (UTC)

Will your bot only remove interwikis from the main namespace? Regards. --invadinado (TALK - SUL) 12:01, 4 March 2013 (UTC)
No, it will remove them from any page that is not in the userspace, per d:Wikidata:Notability. Legoktm (talk) 12:04, 4 March 2013 (UTC)

Thanks, Ty221 (talk) 11:52, 29 March 2013 (UTC)

Don't be silly. We are not going to grant any bot status for such a proposal. Plus you have your bot blocked at plWP. — billinghurst sDrewth 12:01, 29 March 2013 (UTC)

Global bot status for KLBot2

My bot is importing interwiki links to Wikidata and removing it from Wikipedia in several languages. I have local flags in most important languages and in Wikidata but I want to make the same in all Wikipedias. On the other hand, my bot is the only one who is watching the recent changes in all languages ​​and importing new articles in Wikidata, but I can't remove the local interwiki links in all languages​​. Kizar (talk) 20:28, 19 March 2013 (UTC)

I have no objections. Ruslik (talk) 12:24, 20 March 2013 (UTC)

Bot status requests


On that Wikipedia does not have a bureaucrat. --Kolega2357 (talk) 19:56, 6 December 2012 (UTC)

  •   Oppose The bot operator is blocked on srwiki [2]. — Ace111 (talk) 22:59, 11 December 2012 (UTC)
  • Strongly   Support. Bot has a flag in Serbo Croatian wiki, and it will just welcome new users.--Gubin (talk) 21:01, 13 December 2012 (UTC)

I also have the Macedonian Wikipedia flag. --Kolega2357 (talk) 23:05, 13 December 2012 (UTC)

  • even more so.--Gubin (talk) 17:53, 14 December 2012 (UTC)
  • I cannot seem to access the original request link, it keeps redirecting me to enwiki; also, a block as sockpuppet of a globally locked user makes me doubtful that this flag should be granted... Snowolf How can I help? 09:43, 8 January 2013 (UTC)
    Also, this is a welcoming bot, not some non-controversial request, and I would think that it should need some good community input stating that they desire to have such a bot, discussing what the template should be, and so on. I have fixed the link to the local request and the link to the srwiki block. Snowolf How can I help? 09:59, 8 January 2013 (UTC)
    • I am admin Buryat Wikipedia, I can block the bot, if it need be. But now I can vouch for him.--Gubin (talk) 14:28, 8 January 2013 (UTC)
      There still needs to be some community involvement deciding that a they want to welcome users thru a bot... Snowolf How can I help? 23:50, 17 January 2013 (UTC)
      • Yes, we want.--Gubin (talk) 12:09, 19 January 2013 (UTC)
  •   Not done, no community discussion after months on whether a welcoming bot would be welcome or needed, operator is untrustworthy as a sock of a locked account. Snowolf How can I help? 18:12, 2 March 2013 (UTC)

Hi, Sam! :-) Please start a thread on the local discussion page (w:gu:w:gu:વિકિપીડિયા:ચોતરો (અન્ય)) to get community consensus for flagging the bot. After about a week, if there is no reason for concern, this can be granted. Jon Harald Søby (talk) 21:05, 28 February 2013 (UTC)
