For bot status on MetaWiki, see the bot policy and request page.

Template:Steward request


Before posting here编辑

If there is a bureaucrat on the local wiki, please ask them to fulfill your request using Special:UserRights on the relevant wiki. Before requesting access here, make sure to obtain consensus on the local wiki if there is a community (see the index of request pages). If there is no local community, request on this page with a note to that effect.

Remember to read the local project's bot policy. This should be linked from the local bot request page; a few are listed below. DO NOT post your request here without having fulfilled the local policies first, and having waited for at least a week to gauge community opinion.

Making a request编辑

  1. Place the following code at the bottom of the "Bot status requests" section below:
    ===Bot name@xxproject===
     |status    = <!--don't change this line-->
     |domain    = 
     |user name = 
    Thank you! ~~~~

    You can use following form when applying global bot status:

    ===Global bot status for <yourbotname>===
     |status    = <!--don't change this line-->
     |domain    = global<!--don't change this line-->
     |user name = 
    Thank you! ~~~~
  2. Fill in the values:
    • 'domain': the wiki's URL domain (like "ex.wikipedia" or "meta.wikimedia").
    • 'user name': the bot's user name (like "ExampleBot"). Leave it blank if you're requesting access for multiple bots.
    • 'discussion': a link to the local vote or discussion about the bot (for example, "[[ex:Wikipedia:Bots#ExampleBot]]"). Notes: If there is no local vote or discussion, please say so below the template and explain why not. If there's no community, implement the standard bot policy instead.
  3. If anything is missing from your request, a steward will request more information.

Global bot requests 编辑

Global bots are enabled on most wikis using the standard bot policy (see list of global bot wikis and global bot access requirements). Request will typically be left open for several days to allow comments.

Global bot status for TaBOT-zerem编辑

Template:Sr-request Thank you! TaBaZzz 18:30, 28 March 2009 (UTC)

Hello, imho the bot is not fulfilling Bot_policy#Global_bots especially: "already be active on several wikis, with long-term contributions to back up its trustworthiness", other opinions welcome, best regards, --birdy geimfyglið (:> )=| 15:23, 29 March 2009 (UTC)
I am working with this bot for quite a while. It is working great and his operator is very cooperative. One of the very few bots that know how to handle links to categories, info boxes and other things outside of the main articles area. I support this request. w:user:Chagai, w:he:משתמש:חגי אדלר 22:08, 1 April 2009 (UTC)
I have noticed the good work of this user. The bot-operator is indeed cooperative, and I believe that giving him Global status will benefit everyone. Broccolitalk page 22:30, 1 April 2009 (UTC)

On one hand I tend to a yes, because the bot is doing quite well on some larger wikis. On the other hand, I don't know the bot, I actually saw that name for the first time here, and the bot is not active for long, only since half a year or so. This seems too early in the light of the gbot policy (although there are no fixed dates for how long the bot shall be active). So I'm very undecided about this, but I would rather decline it then approve it - for now. In a half year's time this might be different, though. Maybe also seek for more local flags on larger wikis, like dewiki, plwiki or eswiki. --Thogo (talk) 21:39, 13 April 2009 (UTC)

Bot status requests编辑

Please add new requests at the bottom of this section.

Bot operators making bulk requests, please consider helping implement the standard bot policy on small wikis to simplify and streamline the bulk request process.


Template:Sr-request req since 9.4.9, maybe needs a few days; this is the last flag needed for Interwicket to be able to make complete updates. (see en:wikt:User:Interwicket/FL status) Robert Ullmann 16:40, 12 April 2009 (UTC)

Yep - just need to wait a few days and then we are good to go. I don't foresee any issues. --Daniel Mayer (mav) 19:59, 12 April 2009 (UTC)
done, one week per today, best regards, --birdy geimfyglið (:> )=| 00:53, 16 April 2009 (UTC)


Template:Sr-request --Bertrand GRONDIN – Talk 23:26, 15 April 2009 (UTC)

Hello, the request had been opened [1] since the local wiki does not state otherwise we assume the usual one week, that would be tomorrow, best regards, --birdy geimfyglið (:> )=| 00:52, 16 April 2009 (UTC)

Removal of bot status编辑

If a specific user is abusing his/her bot status, you may request removal of the status on his account here. Please be sure to provide a short explanation on the current situation, along with links to the bot's contribution and an announcement in your community of the abuse. Previous requests are archived.
