User:WarddrBOT for bot status[edit]

  • Nomination: I hereby request the Bot flag for User:warddrBOT for the following purposes:
    I have a total of 30.000 bot edits at wikipedia, most of them are interwiki.

  • Discussion:


  1. Symbol support vote.svg Support --Μετάknowledgediscuss/deeds 06:22, 15 April 2012 (UTC) The bot seems to be doing its job successfully, so I'll support this until told otherwise.
    Good point, opposers. The only reason I'm not changing my vote is because it looks like the vote will fail anyway, and there's still a chance that Warddr will add the info. --Μετάknowledgediscuss/deeds 13:41, 20 April 2012 (UTC)
  2. Symbol support vote.svg Support Equinox 15:32, 20 April 2012 (UTC) Assuming that we need this — I know User:Interwicket doesn't run any more. Equinox 15:32, 20 April 2012 (UTC)
    See Special:Contributions/Luckas-bot and Special:Contributions/VolkovBot.​—msh210 (talk) 15:53, 20 April 2012 (UTC)
  3. Symbol support vote.svg (late) Support, because it is helpful to have several bots adding interwikis, and the only concern the oppose voters have seems to be that we already have interwiki bots. - -sche (discuss) 01:09, 27 April 2012 (UTC)


Symbol oppose vote.svg Oppose per the nonanswer on the talkpage. I'll gladly change my vote if an acceptable answer's posted.​—msh210 (talk) 19:41, 19 April 2012 (UTC) Rescinded my opposition per the answers on the talkpage. Still not supporting, as I have no particular reason to think this bot is necessary (can anyone confirm one way or the other?), considering that Luckas-bot and VolkovBot both do interwiki.​—msh210 (talk) 16:15, 20 April 2012 (UTC)
Symbol oppose vote.svg Oppose. Same reason, bot owners need to be able to communicate with the rest of the community, even interwiki bots where the tasks *ought to be* straightforward. Mglovesfun (talk) 20:04, 19 April 2012 (UTC)
  • I answered on the talk page of this page. If you contact me on my talkpage you can reach me very quick (this answer is written little over an hour after a question on my (Dutch) talk page) - Warddr (talk) 14:53, 20 April 2012 (UTC)



This messy vote seems to have been (officially) closed when the votes were at 2-0-0, so I believe that it passes. I will unblock the bot account, but we need a 'crat to grant bot privileges and notify Warddr at nl.wikt. --Μετάknowledgediscuss/deeds 01:10, 6 May 2012 (UTC)

Flag granted. —Stephen (Talk) 05:29, 26 May 2012 (UTC)
