Please add me to global message delivery access listEdit

  • I would like to be added to the access list to be able to deliver updates about Correio da Wikipédia, the Portuguese version of Wikipedia Signpost. Not sure if this is the right place for that, and I would appreciate some help if it's possible. VítoR™ · (D) 17:08, 5 May 2013 (UTC)
      Done. -- MarcoAurelio (talk) 14:35, 7 May 2013 (UTC)
  • Me as well, please, in case the Signpost's publishing script goes down (like today!). Thanks, Ed [talk] [en] 07:11, 23 May 2013 (UTC)
      Done Snowolf How can I help? 07:17, 23 May 2013 (UTC)
  • Would like to be added to the list. I have to drop a message on all Wikivoyage language versions about interlanguage expeditions, projects and discussions frequently as well as announcements from the WV association as a thematic organisation. -- DerFussi 11:17, 27 August 2013 (UTC)
      Done and replied on User_talk:PiRSquared17#Global_message_access_list. Maybe I should watch this page... PiRSquared17 (talk) 13:15, 2 September 2013 (UTC)
  • Would you please add my account to the list? I work for WMF and we intend to send our a survey to participant in the Participation Support Program soon. Thank you. --Haithams (talk) 21:39, 16 September 2013 (UTC)
    @Haithams:   Done [1] :-) PiRSquared17 (talk) 21:42, 16 September 2013 (UTC)

Propose the removal of Nemo_bisEdit

Nemo_bis started a discussion about a global ban of a user, and then has undertaken a global message delivery without obvious further discussion. This looks to me an abuse of the purpose of the bot, and an abuse of the privilege of the bot. It is too close to a conflict of interest and one would hope that any use of the bot would have a level of conversation with a wider audience, or a level of self-reflection that would get someone else to undertake the notification. — billinghurst sDrewth 14:46, 24 August 2013 (UTC)

Maybe he should have used a script. I will publish a JavaScript in the near future that will do the same, just under the user account that is running it.
On the other hand, please point to a policy that was violated. -- Rillke (talk) 14:26, 25 August 2013 (UTC)
The policy at Global bans requires notifications to communities where a user was active, for apparent reasons (otherwise the proposal is even invalid). So this seems to me to be a legitimate usage of the bot. It doesn't matter much if one sends it manually or through this bot. --MF-W 19:37, 25 August 2013 (UTC)
Per the policy, I/it was required to send the notifications. Making 70 edits manually is no big deal if for whatever reason the bot is not considered the appropriate tool for mandatory notifications, but this is not stated or implied anywhere; just let me (and others) know if this is the conclusion. --Nemo 13:38, 26 August 2013 (UTC) P.s.: If the problem is in the text of the notification, however, that's another matter. I hope it was ok, it consisted only of a link and a quotation from the policy to explain why the link was posted.
I received a lot of email pings about this system. He did not meet the criteria, which means that he spammed me quite a bit. He knew it would happen, and he knew that it would be harassing. This was not a legitimate use because he did not meet the criteria. It is obvious that there should be obvious certification before a neutral person activates it.
