Hello, I tried to inform the potential bot-owner in #pywikipediabotconnect, and Mulitchill told me that this seems not to be a bot (because pywikipedia always adds a summary) but an user adding links manually. I would not block him, or please try to contact him on his talk.
I wrote him but he haven't replay and after block he starts with these edits again without any explanation, replay or protest against block. So I wrote him on sv Wiki ask him for summaries etc.; without replay too. It really looks very peculiarly... --Jagro 22:55, 29 November 2008 (UTC)
The following discussion is closed: Done
Please unblock or shorten the block on 188.8.131.52, which was blocked by Zirland for two years on account of being an open proxy. Per discussion, only open proxies which are used abusively are to be blocked, and not for this long. While there is abuse, it doesn't seem to be recurrent, severe, or otherwise necessitating a two-year block on well over 700 wikis. If there is recent abuse, a short block may be in order. — Mike.lifeguard | @en.wb 19:03, 2 December 2008 (UTC)
Thanks Mike, Zirland shortened the block to one week softblock, if it needs to be prolonged after that period when the spambot returns we will see, best regards, --birdy geimfyglið(:> )=| 20:28, 2 December 2008 (UTC)

Hello, done one, "海獺2" is not a sul account, therefore we can't lock it. Best regards, --birdy geimfyglið(:> )=| 14:36, 12 December 2008 (UTC)
Comment I would think this would require an election for permanent access, similar to Steward elections. I don't imagine an extension of an already-granted access would need it, however. Kylu 19:46, 19 December 2008 (UTC)
It is indeed only a temporary thing, for granting this as permanent right there should be a voting from the community, sorry, --birdy geimfyglið(:> )=| 22:50, 19 December 2008 (UTC)
Comment - well you already have Temp editinterface, please make use of it. This right will never be permanent and this is the second time you have been given the right and last time you didn't do much with it, please use it this time and don't ask for a permanent one, global rights are meant to be used and if not used, it will be removed and this temp one will be removed within a week because I don't think stewards will allow temp rights for more than 2 weeks...--Cometstyles 23:18, 19 December 2008 (UTC)
Comment a lot of sysops has reacted that someone was messing with "their" MediaWiki-pages, and this right should not be permanent. Laaknor 00:37, 20 December 2008 (UTC)
