Bot status requests

Revibot@some ko projects

Double redirect fixing bot, all wikis have automatic approval.(See Bot policy/Implementation) I will always monitor bots' edit. — revi 15:23, 8 October 2014 (UTC)

Wikibooks does not have automatic approval. Ruslik (talk) 17:40, 8 October 2014 (UTC)
Yes, you're right. Please do other wikis (except kowikibooks) then. I'll ask for a local consensus on global bot and automatic approval. — revi 18:48, 8 October 2014 (UTC)

There was broad support to give permissions to user Սահակ (Sahak) to run his bot, in february this year, but noone applied to meta, after that. Question was rised again, so I'm applying as one of sysops of the project. Xelgen (talk) 21:20, 25 October 2014 (UTC)

(I am requesting on behalf of Chinara Isabaeva, bot master, and Kyrgyz wikitionary community. Best regards, Daniiar) Kyrgyztil (talk) 10:46, 5 September 2014 (UTC)

The bot owner has 1 edit globally (=the request). The bot has none at all. Why is that? --MF-W 11:50, 5 September 2014 (UTC)
Update: The bot has made now between 50 and 100 edits. Carsrac (talk) 11:05, 18 October 2014 (UTC)
Sorry, I did't get it. Could you explain what do you mean. I apologize if it is dumb question. — The preceding unsigned comment was added by Kyrgyztil (talk) 14:22, 6 September 2014 (UTC)
We (Kyrgyz language wiki volunteers) are trying to develop Kyrgyz wiktionary, so we created team and our team member Chinara Isabaeve will work with the bot. In addition to Kyrgyz community we also had communication with Wiki person - Pathoschild. Hope it clarifies [User:Rahat] — The preceding unsigned comment was added by Rahat (talk) 15:50, 6 September 2014 (UTC)
Dear MF-Warburg, can you suggest what shall we do to register the bot correctly and promptly? It is really and really important for Kyrgyz Wiktionary community. Best, [User:Daniiar] — The preceding unsigned comment was added by Kyrgyztil (talk) 06:18, 9 September 2014 (UTC)
Rahat has been talking to me by email. He and some friends intend to add a large number of words to kywiktionary by bot. I suggested they begin slowly editing with the bot to test it out, and asked about the copyright status of the content they intend to add. —Pathoschild 13:21, 10 September 2014 (UTC)
This is not correct place to talk about copyright. But slowly editing with a bot without a flag is good for testing. The rate is now 20 edits a day. I suggest to give the flag to the bot. It looks like the local community is accepting the changes without major corrections. Carsrac (talk) 11:05, 18 October 2014 (UTC)

Removal of bot status


I have decided to retire from Wikipedia community, and thus does not require the use of Bots anymore. As an operator of this bot, I hereby ask Steward to remove the bot flag from this bot. I will also initiate the rename at later time. Thank you. G(x) (talk) 17:23, 1 October 2014 (UTC)

The bot flag can be removed by local bureaucrats, please ask them to do so. In general, we can't act if there are local users who can perform the same action. Savhñ 17:29, 1 October 2014 (UTC)
Please archive or remove this request. Thank you. --G(x) (talk) 17:37, 1 October 2014 (UTC)
