Bot status requests


Hi. I request that the user Jembot pass to have the bot status in Portuguese Wikinews. He is active for over a year and does a daily "flooding" in the recent changes page. Wikinews does not have any bureaucrats since December 2011. Thanks. Érico (msg) 17:42, 9 November 2015 (UTC)

Please, open a local discussion. Ruslik (talk) 19:53, 10 November 2015 (UTC)
@Ruslik0: Hello. I'm not the operator of this bot. I just thought that he had permission to work in Portuguese Wikinews. Anyway, I contact Teles and he blocked the bot locally and warned the operator. Érico (msg) 23:01, 12 November 2015 (UTC)
@-jem-: As you're the operator. —MarcoAurelio 16:29, 15 November 2015 (UTC)
Thanks, @MarcoAurelio: I was notified about the flag request in pt.wikinews but didn't know about this one here. I confirm the flag request and I'm doing the same there in a minute. The bot is operating per request by users of the project and in almost the same way as in es.wikinews (where it has flag), so I assumed the "flooding" (well, 1 edit in 15 minutes and 3 more edits in 24 hours) wasn't a real problem for them, but I was warned after the block. If there's something else that I should do, just let me know. Regards, -jem- (talk) 17:54, 15 November 2015 (UTC)
@MarcoAurelio and Ruslik0: It seems to be fine to approve the request now that a local discussion has been left opened for a while. Regards.—Teles «Talk to me ˱C L @ S˲» 02:31, 3 December 2015 (UTC)

This bot is going to make cosmetic edits using AWB and replace English templates with the Uzbek ones. Local bureaucrat is inactive since July. Ochilov (talk) 16:22, 16 December 2015 (UTC)

Hi Ochilov, could you please leave a note on the local bureaucrat's talk page. If he doesn't respond in a week, we can have a look. All the best, Taketa (talk) 11:06, 17 December 2015 (UTC)
@Taketa:, I just notified the local bureaucrat. --Ochilov (talk) 11:15, 17 December 2015 (UTC)

Is there a discussion on hsbwiki? --MF-W 16:27, 14 December 2015 (UTC)
the Admins of user:J budissin and user:Tlustulimu discussed the requests here, but they are of the opinion, that this should be very okay. Doc Taxon (talk)
@MF-Warburg: Um genau zu sein war ich es, der um den Bot-Einsatz gebeten hat, um die Umstellung auf eine neue Infobox und ein paar Aktualisierungen bzw. Anpassungen durchzuführen, die ansonsten zu zeitaufwändig wären. Große Diskussionen gibt es bei fünf bis sechs regelmäßigen Mitarbeitern ohnehin kaum. Ich gehe auch nicht davon aus, dass Doc Taxon die Botflag irgendwie missbrauchen würde, ansonsten wird er halt gesperrt :) Grüße, j.budissin 20:51, 14 December 2015 (UTC)
Hi Doc Taxon and j.budissin, we cannot give a flag based on a discussion on another project ( Please start a local discussion on If there is no specific location for this, put it in the village pump or another public place. If people agree then we can give the flag. I see 3 active editors on today. You should be able to get feedback. All the best, Taketa (talk) 11:20, 17 December 2015 (UTC)
@MF-Warburg, Taketa, Hoo man, and DerHexer: I forwarded the discussion to [1] Thank you very much Doc Taxon (talk)
  On hold until 23 December 2015. Taketa (talk) 05:42, 18 December 2015 (UTC)
For bot requests we often only require 5 days. --MF-W 13:30, 18 December 2015 (UTC)
Ok, I have changed accordingly. Thank you. Sincerely, Taketa (talk) 19:04, 18 December 2015 (UTC)
@Taketa:: Three out of five currently active users support the request, so please give the bot flag to TaxonBot. Thanks a lot. Regards, j.budissin 14:31, 23 December 2015 (UTC)
  Done - Taketa (talk) 15:10, 23 December 2015 (UTC)


I am a local admin (temp) at BHojpuri wiki and permanent admin at Hindi wikipedia. I request this bot to be approved for Bhojpuri wikipedia (bh.wikipedia). I have given the details at local discussion page about tasks for which I need this bot. This will use AWB for performing such tasks in manually assisted as well as automatic modes.

For inactive bots, I had made a local discussion for request of removal of bot flags at newikipedia, & got no argues while it being open for a month. There are 2 bureaucrats but no response at all while i've already left messages on their talk page. So, We would like to request here on meta. -- Tulsi Bhagat (Talk) 06:15, 30 November 2015 (UTC)
Some bots may be inactive because they have nothing to do. Has you considered this? Ruslik (talk) 11:18, 12 December 2015 (UTC)
@Ruslik0: Yeah! we had already considered that but found nothing to be like so. Also, you can see the last contribs date mentioned above which shows that they are inactive so far. -- Tulsi Bhagat (Talk) 05:13, 13 December 2015 (UTC)
I noticed that Ganesh Paudel, a bureaucrat, is active and even participated in the above discussion. He should remove the bot rights. Stewards can not act in such a situation. Ruslik (talk) 09:24, 14 December 2015 (UTC)
@Ruslik0: You have noticed but that's not true at all. He has only given at about 300+ contributions within whole 2015 year of time; (Verify) and also you can check that i have left message on his talk page to concerned about bot discussion on 25th November but i got no any reply from him till now. IMHO, He isn't active anymore. So that requesting here on meta. -- Tulsi Bhagat (Talk) 18:36, 14 December 2015 (UTC)
  Not done Unfortunately we can not override the decision of a local bureaucrat to not act in this particular situation. Ruslik (talk) 12:49, 15 December 2015 (UTC)
@Ruslik0: Ok! agreed with your opinion. but there is no removal of bot since the discussion closed about 14 days ago. A active bureaucrat Nirmal dulal remove 5 bots flag few days ago but there is lots to do. Need your attention once again... -- Tulsi Bhagat (Talk) 13:12, 15 December 2015 (UTC)


As per above & due to inactivity, I had made a local discussion for request of removal of bot flags at newikipedia, & got no argues while it being open for more than a month. There are 2 bureaucrats but no response at all while i've already left messages on their talk page. So, We would like to request here on meta. -- Tulsi Bhagat (Talk) 05:51, 10 December 2015 (UTC)
