Global bot status requests

Global bot status for TohaomgBot

I transform a lot of raster images to svg ([1]) so I created a bot to replace all instances of old raster image with the new svg image, which would be very time consuming if done manually, so I need a global bot status for this bot. My bot already has a bot flag in ukrainian wikipedia ([2]) and autopatrolled flag in commons ([3]). My bot is written on C#, you can read its code here. -- Tohaomg (talk) 17:09, 6 February 2017 (UTC)

  Not done per bot policy global bots "must only maintain interlanguage links or fix double-redirects". Ruslik (talk) 17:36, 6 February 2017 (UTC)
But this rule is very outdated because Wikidata was started. You propose me to get bot flag in every wikimedia project separately? --Tohaomg (talk) 18:58, 6 February 2017 (UTC)
Yes, this is only option. Moreover the global bot group would not give you bot rights on all projects either. Ruslik (talk) 19:36, 7 February 2017 (UTC)
P.S. I do not think this bot should be flagged at all. All its edits should remain visible in the recent changes IMO. Ruslik (talk) 19:38, 7 February 2017 (UTC)

BG19bot@htwiki

I've asked User:Bgwhite to improve accessibility by fixing some list formatting problems, which affect nearly 20% of the articles there. There is unanimous agreement from the few long-time editors at the project. WhatamIdoing (talk) 21:01, 31 January 2017 (UTC)

The bot account does not exist. Ruslik (talk) 11:59, 1 February 2017 (UTC)
Ruslik According to the "Global account information" page under BG19bot's preferences, it says BG19bot was attached to htwiki last month. What are you looking at that I need to get done? Bgwhite (talk) 23:03, 1 February 2017 (UTC)
Ah, I see. Under user name above, it had "User:BG19bot" when it sould be "BG19bot". I've changed it. Bgwhite (talk) 23:06, 1 February 2017 (UTC)
