  • I am currently less active with my bot due to my studies. My last edits are from April 2014 (definately not a year ago), and I requested this bot for wiktionary since there is no wikidata yet on that project. I will reactivate my bot shortly. -Warddr questions? 16:22, 14 January 2015 (UTC)

(your remarks) Danzanjamts (talk) 08:56, 11 September 2014 (UTC)

Is there a community discussion somewhere? Why do you want a bot flag? And it's probably best if you create a separate account for a bot, don't you think? --MF-W 13:46, 11 September 2014 (UTC)

And please, make us sure that our wiki has confirmed its global bot policy, as discussed in the section above. Tn4196 (talk) 21:14, 20 January 2015 (UTC)

Done. Your wiki was already opted in to global bots in October 2014, as noted above. It is, as I see, meanwhile also listed on the page here on Meta where the global bot wikis are listed. --MF-W 15:40, 23 January 2015 (UTC)

Comment

Is there anybody who could give a translation or summary of what the discussion about? Bennylin 06:00, 17 October 2014 (UTC)

From a machine translation, is it correct to say that hy.wp community wants those bots to be unflagged because they're a potential threat and/or inactivity? For globally inactive bots, I believe there are other mechanism that will deflagged them, but for an inactive bots in a project I don't think they're posing any risk of running wild or anything like that. Could you explain your reasoning in this page? (In your language or second language other than English is fine too). Bennylin 06:34, 17 October 2014 (UTC)
Bennylin, могу сказать, что не все боты имеют глобальные флаги, большинство имеют сразу два флага: и глобальный, и местный. Плюс к этому смотрите эту страницу:Requests for comment/Inactive Global bot accounts--6AND5 (talk) 17:36, 17 October 2014 (UTC)
Let me clarify/confirm this. Those are interwiki maintenance bots with local flags given years ago for that task. They are inactive for 1.5-3 years, now. Bot activity is not being monitored on hy:WP, so if abandoned account get in wrong hands, damage done won't be noticed fast. Alternative solution would be to block all passive accounts, and unblock per bot master request with description of new tasks planned, but deflagging seemed like a first option. I've also fired RfC on inactive Global bots based on same concerns related to Global bot accounts. --Xelgen (talk) 18:26, 17 October 2014 (UTC)
Done. Rights removed. My apologies for the delay. Savhñ 11:27, 8 January 2015 (UTC)
