Mjbmrbot is no longer a global botRecensere

Hello, please update the list. Mjbmrbot is no longer a global bot (see here). The discussion can be found here, thanks. Wikitanvir 14:55, 29 Martii 2011 (UTC)

Thank you for telling us, I have updated the list. User:Mjbmrbot does not have a local bot flag either, so if it continues editing, we will see and monitor its edits on recentchanges. On the other hand, I do not currently see the need for blocking Mjbmrbot. --UV 21:51, 29 Martii 2011 (UTC)

Bot flag for SamoaBotRecensere

It will remove interwiki links, once la.wiki is migrated to Wikidata. It is currently flagged on hu.wiki (see contributions) and being approved on el.wiki and no.wiki. --Ricordisamoa (disputatio) 11:36, 3 Martii 2013 (UTC)

Please do not. It is a very bad idea to remove interwiki links without checking that (a) the lawiki article in question is indeed connected to a wikidata entry and (b) each and every interwiki link that the bot is about to remove is indeed present on the wikidata entry in question. There are other, comparatively minor, problems as well (e. g. interwiki links with section anchors that cannot be added to wikidata and therefore must stay in the article, but the bot that removes the other interwiki links should ideally check for conflicts involving these interwiki links with section anchors as well). There are other bots with a longstanding edit history (in particular global bots) that will do the job. Thank you! --UV (disputatio) 12:54, 3 Martii 2013 (UTC)
I grant that the bot will remove interlinks only if they are all present on Wikidata! Check the contributions on hu.wiki if you don't trust me! --Ricordisamoa 12:59, 3 Martii 2013 (UTC)
Also, it would be operated only once la.wiki is completely migrated to Wikidata. --Ricordisamoa 13:03, 3 Martii 2013 (UTC)
Thank you for explaining, and thank you for offering your help! As past experience tells that every bot, and in particular every new bot, has some minor problems, I would prefer to leave the task to the "well-experienced" bots (I am thinking in particular of MerlIwBot and Xqbot here, who are both global bots), and perhaps to a small number of larger bots with a bit more experience than your bot (perhaps Addbot and/or Legobot, who both have already done tens of thousands of edits on enwiki and hewiki, where wikidata is already active). And although it is desirable to have unnecessary local interlanguage links that duplicate wikidata interlanguage links removed within a few weeks' time, there is no particular hurry. I would therefore propose that we wait until, for example, two weeks after wikidata becomes active on all wikipedias. Then, we can see how much work the other bots have already done and what still remains to be done. If, by then, a large number of duplicate interwiki links remain to be removed, I would be happy to discuss your offer for help further. Again, thank you! --UV (disputatio) 21:23, 3 Martii 2013 (UTC)

SamoaBot is now a global bot with nearly two million edits on wikidata and more than 80 000 edits spread over eight wikipedias, apparently without any major problems. I withdraw all my reservations and I would be happy if you would like to run your bot on la.wikipedia as well. Greetings, --UV (disputatio) 20:27, 25 Maii 2013 (UTC)

We are trying to set up a new global translation for edit summaries: documentation and translatable message. It would be useful if you could provide me some feedback on the Latin version I've made. Thanks, --Ricordisamoa 05:51, 28 Maii 2013 (UTC)
It also follows Recent Changes: this edit of yours triggered this other. :-) --Ricordisamoa 08:00, 28 Maii 2013 (UTC)
Great, thanks! --UV (disputatio) 21:10, 28 Maii 2013 (UTC)

bot flag for AMahoney_botRecensere

I've been making automated edits under my own name for a long time; now I have a bot account. If it's convenient, that account could be given the bot flag. I propose to add a new formula to all of the 10,000 Pages this afternoon -- that's what prompted me to create this account now. A. Mahoney (disputatio) 16:58, 17 Maii 2014 (UTC)

I support giving the bot flag to Usor:AMahoney bot (A. Mahoney definitely knows what she is doing and is a most trusted user). --UV (disputatio) 20:43, 17 Maii 2014 (UTC)
In case a further opinion is needed, I think so too :) Andrew Dalby (disputatio) 10:34, 18 Maii 2014 (UTC)
Sorry, I nearly forgot about this here. I have now asked our Vicipaedia:Grapheocrates to grant the bot flag. Greetings, --UV (disputatio) 22:42, 16 Iunii 2014 (UTC)
Thanks to all. A. Mahoney (disputatio) 15:14, 17 Iunii 2014 (UTC)

Bots need to upgrade to Pywikibot 6.6.1Recensere

Dear bot operators, bots running Pywikibot must upgrade to version 6.6.1 otherwise they will break when deprecated API parameters are removed. If you have any questions or need help in upgrading, please reach out using one of the Pywikibot communication channels.

Thanks, Legoktm (talk) 18:02, 22 Septembris 2021 (UTC)
