Global bot status requests

Removal of global bot status

Global bot status for MessengerBot Zero edits on 5 wikis, but has bot flag on 4 of them. Innactive since autumn of 2013. Unnecessary bot status. XXN (talk) 18:37, 16 August 2014 (UTC)

  Not done There is no global account with such a name. Ruslik (talk) 16:45, 23 August 2014 (UTC)
Maybe is not global bot account, but it has bot status in multiple wikis. Should i post this request in other section?
As i presented above, he has bot flag on 5 linguistic versions of wikipedia but is inactive for more than 9 months. It's so dificult to make 5 clicks to removes him status? On test wikis status can be kept. If bot operator someday will need bot status on other wikipedias he can request it again. --XXN (talk) 16:41, 24 August 2014 (UTC)
Stewards have no authority to remove local bot flags. It is up to the respective local communities to decide this. Ruslik (talk) 16:48, 24 August 2014 (UTC)
MessengerBot isn't a real bot account, did you read w:User:MessengerBot? If someone has a problem with it, I could remove the bot flags I guess. Legoktm (talk) 21:09, 24 August 2014 (UTC)
Hi Legoktm. If it's your bot - it's ok, you can keep him status. I really had some problems with MessengerBot, about one month ago: when i tried to create list of bots by number of edits on rowiki i've got errors, and i lost some time until i understood that problem appears because account exists, it has bot flag, but it has no one contribution - this thing caused the problem. As edit counter i used an external, online third party tool, so i couldn't debug it, and (as temporary sollution) i just ”blacklisted” this account in my code to not ”count” edits for him:) --XXN (talk) 23:58, 29 August 2014 (UTC)

Bot status requests


I will arrange for category names (much needed). Thanks.--MongolWiki (talk) 01:49, 26 May 2014 (UTC)

I do not see any discussion about this bot. Ruslik (talk) 12:47, 28 May 2014 (UTC)
So we created the discussion, waiting for votes.--Yalagch (talk) 15:55, 17 July 2014 (UTC)

I need this bot to start bot-article creating in mn-wiki, the discussion is here.--Yalagch (talk) 02:22, 20 August 2014 (UTC)

Please, create a few test articles as suggested in that discussion and submit the results to the community review. Ruslik (talk) 19:35, 20 August 2014 (UTC)
I have done it, now I am waiting for some admin to say, that it's OK. But I am sure, that it's OK. I am in a pretty funny situation, because Mongolian Wiki is very active project with 9 admins, but... no bureaucrat. If there was, everything will be done immediately. Hopefully, we will soon elect one.--Yalagch (talk) 10:32, 21 August 2014 (UTC)
Ruslik, I got a support from other users here. This is not a direct bot support, but if we will wait for direct support, we can wait for years.--Yalagch (talk) 07:20, 22 August 2014 (UTC)
Why is it impossible to get "direct support"? Can't you start a "request for bot flag"? Or is it better for the community if the bot runs without a bot flag? --MF-W 00:57, 23 August 2014 (UTC)
Because there are lots of users to write articles, but only few to take active part in Wikipedia life. As you can see in the MN-wiki request, wich was done 1 month ago, in the "request for bot flag" voted only the bot owner and me.--Yalagch (talk) 17:00, 23 August 2014 (UTC)

Bot to run comunity scripts with ca:Viquiprojecte:Grup Tècnic supervision and maintenance --Anskar (talk) 09:28, 24 August 2014 (UTC)

@Ruslik0: apologies for the comment so meager, but not very fluently English. The aim of this request is to respond to the need for the community to start scripts regularly from wmlabs. So far, the bot accounts were used for maintenance, such as reverse vandalism, which is a bot that operates in all projects in Catalan language, but it is not suitable for running scripts in the project calls for a task timely. The purpose of the bot is look at what needs are to make scripts and Group responsible for technical viable, the scripts can make anyone but can run only technical group. The porposes is run in all catalan projects (now is discuss it), but in ca.wikiquote is so urgent to don't apears in recentchanges. regards --Anskar (talk) 10:36, 27 August 2014 (UTC)
