BRFA approval[edit]

Hi! I was wondering if you, as a BAG member, would take a look at a (I hope) noncontroversial BRFA request I just posted at WP:BRFA#APersonBot. Thank you very much! APerson (talk!) 21:36, 31 May 2014 (UTC)

I have commented over there :) ·addshore· talk to me! 17:51, 4 June 2014 (UTC)

All bots that are not in unapproved nor active status[edit]

Removing bot flag[edit]

Hi. Can you please explain why my bot (which is not active) had its bot flag removed? In other word, what is the benefit of removing the flag? It is not like I have violated any bot policies, or I ever would. I just find it discouraging to see the flag removed without prior notice.

Please {{ping}} me in your response. Thanks hujiTALK 19:27, 8 July 2014 (UTC)

@Huji:. Your bot was approved for the interwiki task here. Interwiki bots are not longer approved for use on enwiki. Please see Wikipedia:BON#Bot_that_are_inactive_for_the_last_2-4_years_and_may_lose_bot_flag. All bots that were approved for interwiki use have are now 'unapproved' and I have marked the majority of them as so today. In the process bot flags were also removed for the task as the bot again is not approved and should not be running with a bot flag. This does not stop you from getting the bot flag back in the future for a different task! ·addshore· talk to me! 23:47, 8 July 2014 (UTC)

(Stealing thread) ... and I've just started getting errors from one of my monitoring bots because it no longer can execute some API queries (apihighlimits). Please can I get Stwalkerbot's bot flag back? (I'd rather not make it log in with my admin account). [stwalkerster|talk] 10:41, 9 July 2014 (UTC)

@Stwalkerster: Yes check.svg Done. Could you please update the bot user page to reflect what it is doing? All tasks on there are currently listed as inactive and there is nothing saying the bot is using the flag for apihighlimits. ·addshore· talk to me! 11:49, 9 July 2014 (UTC)

I see there is quite a bit of discussion about this, but I would just like to add my note of displeasure that I was not notified of my Bot's (User:GargoyleBot) pending flag removal. IronGargoyle (talk) 19:09, 9 July 2014 (UTC)

My plan is to send out an note to all bots that have had their bot removed in the next few days once I am sure that I have removed all of the flags that can / should be removed. Naturally as none of these bots have edited in the past 4 years I do not feel rushed to send this note out. Of course your bot is still approved for tasks as before, if the bot becomes active again in the future feel free to ask for the bot flag back either here or at WP:BN. ·addshore· talk to me! 19:51, 9 July 2014 (UTC)

Bot flag on frwiki[edit]

Hello,

As a bureaucrat on frwiki, I was checking the activity of the bots, and noticed that yours had been inactive for at least 6 months. It is not reasonable that an unmonitored account keeps a bot flag, as it may be more easily hacked. Do you wish to keep the bot flag? If this is the case, please tell me so (preferably on my talk page on frwiki, otherwise on my talk page on this project). Without any answer from you, the bot flag will be removed in one month.

Thank you for your comprehension, Litlok (talk) 16:21, 10 July 2014 (UTC)

Feel free to remove the flag, If I need it back in the future I will request it again. ·addshore· talk to me! 08:35, 11 July 2014 (UTC)
Thank you for your answer; I've removed the flag. Litlok (talk) 08:39, 11 July 2014 (UTC)
