Global bot status requests

Global bot status for TamizhBOT

requesting Global bot status for my bot Maathavan (talk) 07:11, 7 March 2016 (UTC)

  Comment Per Bot policy#Global bots, to qualify for global bot access, „the bot must already be active on several wikis, with long-term contributions to back up its trustworthiness“ (emphasis added). This bot account was created on 24 January 2016, and by now fixed twenty-six double redirects in total (five on hiwiki on 26 February 2016 between 15:39 and 15:40, twenty on enwiki on 26 February 2016 between 15:47 and 15:50, and one on siwiki on 7 March 2016). I doubt whether the requirements of the global bot policy are met. You might consider applying for local bot status on wikis where you wish to edit. --UV (talk) 23:08, 7 March 2016 (UTC)
  Not done This request is premature as is explained above (especially in light of the block on enwiki). Ruslik (talk) 18:25, 10 March 2016 (UTC)

You mention in the request that the bot is supposed to run, but are you aware that interwiki bots are now large out of date because of Wikidata? --MF-W 17:26, 10 February 2016 (UTC)
Yes, OK--Maathavan (talk) 15:44, 11 February 2016 (UTC)

Short purpose: Upload OCR text to wikisource pages, before they are proof-read by volunteers of this project.

Function details:

  • When scanned books are uploaded to wikisource, text from OCR needs to be automatically added for each page. For example, consider this page from a book we are currently working on. The text on the left hand side is OCR text, while the image on the right hand side is the corresponding scanned page. This bot will, for a given book, add OCR text for each such page.
  • The bot has already made over 400 successful edits.

Turns out that I had marked status as DONE while creating this request. Removing that false status. Please grant the bot flag. Also, can you please tell me how I can verify that sanskritnlpbot has the bot flag, and what the edit rate limit is for bots? Vishvas vasuki (talk) 01:47, 6 March 2016 (UTC)
Please, provide the link to the discussion on sa.wikisource wiki. Ruslik (talk) 12:52, 6 March 2016 (UTC)

Updated the link to the wikisource discussion. Now I have some community support - do we still need to wait till 16 March? Vishvas vasuki (talk) 15:42, 10 March 2016 (UTC)
As indicated on the top of this page, yes, as a standard practice. ~ Nahid Talk 17:41, 10 March 2016 (UTC)
Ah - the date has arrived. Also, can you please tell me how I can verify that sanskritnlpbot has the bot flag, and what the edit rate limit is for bots? Vishvas vasuki (talk) 03:26, 17 March 2016 (UTC)

There is an active bureaucrat. Ruslik (talk) 18:58, 5 February 2016 (UTC)
Active? --β16 - (talk) 10:04, 24 February 2016 (UTC)
I've asked her on her talk page to make a decision. However the bot policy reads that "Bots, die Interwikilinks setzen, erhalten grundsätzlich kein Bot-Flag", that is, interwikibots don't usually get a bot flag. It's up to her though. —MarcoAurelio 12:44, 24 February 2016 (UTC)
Meh, "Bots, die Interwikilinks setzen" means that they don't accept bots which set interlanguagelinks, but this request is for removing these old links. But if you think a local bureaucrat, it is ok, I just want to clarify this point :). Greetings, Luke081515 11:50, 11 March 2016 (UTC)

I would like to request bot right for JAnDbot as it is currently flooding recent changes on Arabic Wiktionary. Owner is cs:User:JAn Dudík who is an experienced bot operator with nearly 9 million bot edits Wikimedia wide. I reviewed the bot's contributions and I see no problem. There was an announcement in Arabic Wiktionary Village Pump about this (see the provided link) and 2 users supported (including the only currently active admin).
