Give this bot flag[edit]

Resolved: Local bot flag not necessary, edits being marked as bot edits already.

Please give this Wikimedia Foundation bot it's bot flag. It is making countless edits to his user sub page which is cluttering this. It is a Wikimedia Foundation bot and does not need BAG approval as it is making all it's edit in it's user subpage. Thanks! Jim Carter 12:16, 24 February 2015 (UTC)

Actually per this all bots need to be approved. There's no exemption listed here. However, if it's really a Wikipedia Foundation bot, then those in the know will know about it and likely approve it. KoshVorlon Rassekali ternii i mlechnye puti 17:04, 24 February 2015 (UTC)
Link: "In addition, any bot or automated editing process that affects only the operator's or their own userspace (user pages, user talk pages, user's module sandbox pages and subpages thereof), and which are not otherwise disruptive, may be run without prior approval." - In this case, neither approval nor flag is required for it to function. A flag is requested to prevent clogging recent changes. In theory, we're requesting that a bot be flagged as such despite not needed approval to run. ☺ · Salvidrim! ·  17:11, 24 February 2015 (UTC)
Hey guys, I'm looking into this, the account is flagged as a bot (and was before it started editing) using a special global group. It isn't using the API... but I'm working with ops to try and figure out why the edits aren't being flagged. Jalexander--WMF 19:36, 24 February 2015 (UTC)
Ok. It looks like the edits are, correctly, being marked as a bot (as you can see on recent changes when you show bots/user space). It looks like the newbie contributions page (that view is just user space) does not actually distinguish between bot and no bot flag. I'm not sure what the criteria for the newbies page actually is... because the bot is autoconfirmed as well. Jalexander--WMF 19:57, 24 February 2015 (UTC)
