  2. Symbol support vote.svg Support --Μετάknowledgediscuss/deeds 21:42, 17 August 2012 (UTC) although I fail to see why our current interwiki bots (Luckas-bot, VolkovBot, Rukhabot, etc) are not sufficient. --Μετάknowledgediscuss/deeds 21:42, 17 August 2012 (UTC)
  3. Symbol support vote.svg Support - can never have too many interwiki bots, and this wiki could need a few more as a minimum. Njardarlogar (talk) 10:34, 23 August 2012 (UTC)
    It could, yes, in theory. Is that what you meant, or did you mean that it does need a few more? If the latter, then how do you know?​—msh210 (talk) 18:11, 23 August 2012 (UTC)
    I assume you refer to the latter part of my comment. In that case: yes, I do think that it needs some more interwikibots as it can take quite a while for the interwiki to be updated compared to other wiktionaries. It depends on which wiktionary the iw points to, however. Different bots have different wiktionaries on their "new pages" check list, yet even if a wiktionary is not checked for new pages by any bot, there is still often big difference when interwikies are added to the English Wiktionary and when they are added to other wiktionaries. An example here: Article created 29 March 2011, interwiki link added to the Polish Wiktionary 19 May same year, first local interwiki bot interaction 13 December same year, interwiki link added to the English Wiktionary 30 July 2012 (1 year and 4 months after the article was created). French Wiktionary still lacks IW link. Njardarlogar (talk) 09:40, 24 August 2012 (UTC)




  • Passes 3–0–0, but before I grant the priv, I'd like it confirmed that Interpolation?diff=17377006 was a bug that's since been fixed? (I see that you manually fixed that edit, but I'd like it confirmed that it won't happen again.) —RuakhTALK 15:08, 1 September 2012 (UTC)
  • I fixed this problem, when i noticed the mistake. Best regards --Yoursmile (talk) 15:13, 1 September 2012 (UTC)
  • Thanks. I've granted the bot flag. —RuakhTALK 15:28, 1 September 2012 (UTC)
