Global bot status requests

Global bot status for BetaBot

--β16 - (talk) 16:03, 17 February 2016 (UTC)

  Comment Per Bot policy#Global bots, „the bot must already be active on several wikis, with long-term contributions to back up its trustworthiness“ (emphasis added). According to Special:CentralAuth/BetaBot, BetaBot (aside it.wikipedia and wikidata – BetaBot has local bot status on both these projects) has not made edits longer than from 25 January 2016 on, and only on (aside it.wikipedia and wikidata) seven projects: 119 edits on it.wikinews, 92 edits on de.wikinews, 30 edits on pl.wikinews (where the bot has local bot status), 12 edits on fr.wikinews (where the bot has local bot status), 7 edits on pt.wikinews, 1 edit on it.wikiquote and 1 edit on ru.wikinews. I am not sure whether the requirements of the global bot policy (active on several wikis, long-term contributions) are met. --UV (talk) 21:52, 17 February 2016 (UTC)

  Question: Alternatively, can I ask a local flag in the section below, even if the wiki is part of this wiki set? --β16 - (talk) 12:07, 20 February 2016 (UTC)
I think so. According to Bot policy/Implementation#Where it is policy, ptwikinews allows automatic approval. --UV (talk) 14:45, 20 February 2016 (UTC)
Flag was granted locally, so I withdraw this global request. --β16 - (talk) 14:02, 22 February 2016 (UTC)

There are two active bureaucrats. Ruslik (talk) 19:00, 5 February 2016 (UTC)
Neither bureaucrats are performing their duties then. As said, no response for seven days and direct invite to comment was ignored. Riley Huntley (talk) 19:11, 5 February 2016 (UTC)
If bureaucrats ignore your request, it means that they deny it. We can not override their decision. Ruslik (talk) 18:00, 6 February 2016 (UTC)

Though silence is not necessarily an admission, it is not a denial, either.

R. Giskard Reventlov@wawiktionary

I already manage such robot on the walloon wikipedia w:wa:Uzeu:R. Giskard Reventlov; I request for a robot flag for the same user on the walloon wiktionary, to not clobber the "last changes" list. The robot is used mainly for orthographic mass changes (correcting a spelling on the whole site), and fixing links. It seems there is nobody with enough rights on wa.wikt to do it locally. Thanks Srtxg (talk) 02:10, 7 February 2016 (UTC)

Is this a special bot account or a normal user account? Ruslik (talk) 17:43, 7 February 2016 (UTC)
It's a special bot account. It doesn't follow the current wikipedia usage on bot-naming because I created it (on wa.wikipedia) long before there were such usage. (but it is a robot name, even with the infamous leading "R." ;-) )

Hi, I am local sypsos. Please give him this flag ASAP, because he will do marathon OCR job in Bengali wikisource. Jayantanth (talk) 09:35, 14 February 2016 (UTC)
@MarcoAurelio: The operator is a trusted community member and bot operator. This bot intends to perform a task that needs to be done (at least initiated) as soon as possible as the task depends on an external source that might be unavailable without notice. So it is better to assign the bot flag without the standard 7-day delay. Please refer to the local discussion page for ongoing community consensus for a bot flag as soon as possible. — T. 09:40, 14 February 2016 (UTC)
@MarcoAurelio:, Hi, its urgent, as the bot will run an automation script to OCR Bengali scanned pages in Wikisource. Its a community need. Thanks. -- Bodhisattwa (talk) 09:52, 14 February 2016 (UTC)
This is highly irregular. You should have asked before if the task was so urgent. Now I'm being forced to decide to grant an user right without the standard waiting period. Do you understand that now it's me the one responsible for this action? —MarcoAurelio 14:03, 14 February 2016 (UTC)
Surely the wiki will not explode if the bot edits without a bot flag? --MF-W 17:13, 14 February 2016 (UTC)
Hi @MarcoAurelio:, It is requested to grant the bot status as 7 days have already been passed since the application. Thanks in advance. -- Bodhisattwa (talk) 13:21, 21 February 2016 (UTC)
