Requests for the bot flag should be made on this page. This wiki uses the standard bot policy, and allows global bots and automatic approval of certain types of bots. Other bots should apply below. Global bot flag requests are handled at Meta:Steward requests.

If you are requesting bot status, please use the Current requests section. For other matters dealing with bots, please use the "discussion section".

cewbot 2[change source]

  • Contributions
  • Operator: Kanashimi
  • Programming language: unsure
  • Function: removing templates
  • Description: I want to add Cewbot functionality to remove Template:Ill from existing articles. Sorry I am not that familiar with bots. The bot seems active here already but not with that function.

@Immanuelle: I think the bot owner would have to make this request. It doesn't seem like you are the owner, but please correct me if I'm wrong. -- Auntof6 (talk) 05:51, 13 April 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]
@Auntof6 I’m not the owner, the bot is on the wiki too, I’m just requesting a configuration change. Immanuelle ❤️💚💙 (please tag me) 13:05, 13 April 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]
Immanuelle, please contact Kanashimi using their user talk page to request more features. This page is used for bot operators to ask for their bots to be approved. --Ferien (talk) 18:42, 13 April 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]
I checked the template settings and I think I can undertake this task. See Astrid Gjertsen for the test edit. I think I can't do more test editing because there are not many examples for testing. However, this program has been running in Japanese, Chinese and English wikis for many years. --Kanashimi (talk) 03:55, 14 April 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]
If no more trial edits can be run for this task then I am just going to mark this as  Approved. Fairly uncontroversial as it's a basic task that the same bot has done on other wikis. --Ferien (talk) 20:27, 14 April 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]

@Ferien: Approved for trial (50 edits).. I can't provide the flag on completion, but I can monitor the behavior of the bot in trials. Operator873 connect 03:01, 9 April 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]
Operator873, Trial complete. While the bot hasn't made 50 edits, there aren't any more edits to make at this time. The bot ignores pages in the module and template namespaces, as most of these pages usually need protection. That being said, the bot checks pages' protection status every 5 minutes, so if 50 is needed, I can just keep it running until we get to 50. --Ferien (talk) 11:09, 10 April 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]
Seems like works as expected. 50 trial edits is a threshold, not a requirement. I recommend an available Crat review and approve. Operator873 connect 18:01, 10 April 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]

GoingBatty, Approved for trial (50 edits). --Ferien (talk) 11:41, 27 December 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply]
@Ferien: Trial complete. See these 50 edits. I apologize that the first few edits have a redlink to "general fixes" in the edit summary. Most of the edits (and all future edits) have a correct link to "general fixes". Thanks! GoingBatty (talk) 16:23, 27 December 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply]
Thanks GoingBatty. Everything looks good!  Approved. --Ferien (talk) 17:32, 27 December 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply]
@GoingBatty: Rather than linking to an enwiki page, it might be better to create a soft redirect here and link to that. Thanks. -- Auntof6 (talk) 18:31, 27 December 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply]
@Ferien - Thank you! GoingBatty (talk) 19:04, 27 December 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply]
