Granted bot flags[edit]


I request bot flag to my bot

  • Operator: Nemo (sysop on it.wikiquote)
  • Purpose: interwiki links on all wikiquotes (autonomous) regularly + some specific interwiki task (on categories and such)
  • Script used: pywikipedia
  • Already has the bot flag on: global bot + it,pl,de,pt,ru,he,sk,nl,ja,is.wikiquote (64,455 total edits)
  • Note : I've run the bot occasionally for few changes since April 2008, and I've been running it more frequently and globally (hence, also on en.wikiquote) since October 2009, when it has been flagged as global bot (with some more test edits before request, in September 2009). I didn't request local flag before because I was told (if I remember correctly) that it wasn't necessary due to the comparatively low edit rate, and I'm doing so now because I've been requested. I'm notified of changes to my local talk page via e-mail, so I'm easily reachable.

Thank you. --Nemo 20:57, 25 April 2010 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Granted. Sorry for delay! --Aphaia 10:50, 26 July 2010 (UTC)Reply[reply]


I request bot flag to my bot :

  • Operator: JackPotte
  • Purpose: fixing the Double Redirects every day.
  • Script used : the famous (I can also fix some things with AWB).
  • Already has the bot flag on : two projects (and maybe four soon).
  • Note : If someone else absolutely wants to execute this script every day I'll stop this vote for my bot.

Thank you. --JackPotte 06:28, 11 August 2010 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Request for setting improvement: It'll be nice of you to set email preference on the bot account too, while the operator's account has activated this function. (cf. the policy says "The bot's operator must be reachable. The bot account must have an authentificated email address to the operator which enables anyone to mail the operator. "). Besides that, I've seen no other problem to grant your bot the flag. Thank you. --Aphaia 11:22, 21 August 2010 (UTC)Reply[reply]
やあ, my bot account says: E-mail confirmation: Your e-mail address was authenticated on 16 February 2009 at 10:05. Moreover I can see the link "E-mail this user" on its page. For me it's unbearable to let some humans do the bot job. Please let me know when I can clean this list. JackPotte 14:51, 21 August 2010 (UTC)Reply[reply]
This human does not find the occasional mechanical task unbearable, but help from a bot would be welcome. ~ Ningauble 14:39, 22 August 2010 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Hi, email reachability is confirmed, sorry for suspension, it could be just because of glitch. The bot account is now flagged. Enjoy!f --Aphaia 02:10, 24 August 2010 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Thanks for all, the bot has now cleaned the current redirections. JackPotte 19:12, 25 August 2010 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Rejected bot flags[edit]

Ripchip Bot[edit]

Bot : Ripchip Bot (talk · contributions)

Request for a interwiki bot. Béria Lima Msg 00:09, 19 nov 2009 (CET)

Declined now, not only because the discussion is suspended and way long, but also the bot is widely inactive now (its last edit is in last November). According to Cirt's concern, other major wikis approved its flag generally as far as I've sketchily reviewed. --Aphaia 10:54, 26 July 2010 (UTC)Reply[reply]


I request bot flag to my bot

  • Operator: w:de:User:Merlissimo
  • Purpose: changes external links which are outdated and can be successfully replaced by a new one.
  • Script used : java (own framework)
  • Already has the bot flag on : 40+ WPs (including all majors), commons, some other projects (books, news) (see all flags)
  • Function Details
    The bot replaces urls that have to be changed. This can be only a domain change or a more complex page structure change on a website. Links are dectected with the help of the api (and not with regex) and are only replaced if the webserver of the new url returns a 200-status-response for that new resource. “Link text” is not changed. (own framework written in java - used by all of my bots)
  • Note : On some other non wp-projects the community decided to approve the bot task but let it unflagged. Perhaps you should discuss that point here, too.

Thank you. --Merlissimo 05:10, 21 November 2009 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Declined now, per Communication 1: mail reachability. On the bot account on EnWQ email function is not activated, nor on the operator, even on his home wiki (DeWP). The operator will be welcome to submit his request again after improvement. --Aphaia 20:28, 22 March 2010 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Ok, i have excluded this wiki from my global linkfix. (btw: as admin i always have enabled email on dewiki and i am always watching my global user talk pages using my ts-tool) Merlissimo 05:04, 30 March 2010 (UTC)Reply[reply]
