User:MalafayaBot for operation in Article namespace (2)[edit]

  • Nomination: I hereby request authorization to run User:MalafayaBot in the article namespace for the following purposes:
    • interwiki linking of articles (a few examples; please ignore 2008 contribution which was made in Wikipedia). Currently, Interwicket hasn't been running leaving this gap which can't be filled by a single pywikipedia-based bot.
    • no existing redirects will be removed due to operation in "-auto" mode.
    • the bot is already flagged and running in the Category namespace, so no flag is needed.
  • I'm requesting it for second time after a failed vote over 2 months ago Wiktionary:Votes/bt-2010-12/User:MalafayaBot for operation in Article namespace because I believe the first request was clouded by some doubts which seem to be over now:
    • Interwicket's operation seems to have ceased permanently: the highly specialized and efficient work of Interwicket is clearly too much for a few Pywikipedia-based bots. Currently, there seems to be still a high demand for interwiki updates.
    • Unlike Wikipedia-style bots, the interwiki-linking of articles scans all Wiktionaries for articles with the same title, which must match exactly, character by character. This means it is immune to wrong interwikis in the page as it will not follow them blindly. Despite not linking to redirects (as Interwicket did), it will not remove existing interwikis to redirects, so it will not undo work already done.

  • Passes.​—msh210 (talk) 18:01, 15 March 2011 (UTC)
    • It’s already flagged as a bot so it shouldn’t need anything more. Or? —Stephen (Talk) 18:32, 15 March 2011 (UTC)
      Correct. It's already flagged. Nothing else is needed. Thanks, Malafaya 10:55, 16 March 2011 (UTC)
      • Passes 4-0-1, three late votes would make it 7-0-1 but either way it's a pass. Mglovesfun (talk) 15:04, 21 March 2011 (UTC)
