  1. Symbol abstain vote.svg AbstainRuakhTALK The bot's edits seem O.K. (at least at first glance), but the fact that this bot already started work, and was going at quite a clip until I blocked it (287 edits, all unpatrolled, in under an hour and a half), is not a glowing recommendation for the bot owner's willingness or ability to abide by the bot policy. (And not just our bot policy. I don't believe that any project has a bot policy that says, "please start a vote, but in the meantime, please just go ahead and drown our patrol queue in large numbers of edits!") —RuakhTALK 17:28, 10 November 2012 (UTC)
    Sorry for that. I set 30 pages for the bot to do on every top 10 projects, but many pages have consistent English pages so it has done too much test edits. --Makecat (talk) 01:23, 11 November 2012 (UTC)
    Ah, O.K.; that's an understandable mistake, then. —RuakhTALK 02:40, 11 November 2012 (UTC)
