User:Asturbot for bot status

  • Nomination: I hereby request the Bot flag for User:Asturbot for the following purposes:
    Generating entries for inflected forms of Asturian verbs, e.g. http://en.wiktionary.org/w/index.php?title=crearon&diff=19204171&oldid=18335293. At the moment the bot is blocked, and rightly so as it was running without a flag. The edits were merely test edits, to see if the bot was running properly. After checking the edits over and over again, I'm confident that it is running just as it should do, so I'd like to request permission for status. At the moment the entries it's edited have got the languages out of alphabetical order, but that is only until the cleanup bots find these pages and fix them.

    The ones out of order are tagged, so Ruakhbot, or another format bot, should fix them quickly.

  1. # Symbol support vote.svg Support I mean, either we allow WF to contribute or not: In the latter case, every incarnation would have to be blocked on sight (admittedly it seems rather hopeless to catch all). In the former case, we can't have RC clogged by his manually added verb forms. Also, WF has to my knowledge never abused his bot during his crazes. Besides, these bot entries look (to a layman) better than those of a well-established editor and bot owner in a language he is not familiar with; in particular, they use {{form of}} and apparently in a correct way. -- Gauss (talk) 17:10, 5 January 2013 (UTC)
    ... I'd call creating a few hundred entries with titles beginning with "Yeah, it was Wonderfool after all.", "this should be fun", "delete me", and assorted insults to be abusing his bot. --Yair rand (talk) 04:19, 8 January 2013 (UTC)


  1. Symbol oppose vote.svg Oppose Mglovesfun (talk) 22:16, 1 January 2013 (UTC)
  2. Symbol oppose vote.svg Oppose. Actually I shall veto this. Wonderfool is not allowed to run bots. SemperBlotto (talk) 22:19, 1 January 2013 (UTC)
  3. Symbol oppose vote.svg Oppose. I have no idea how everyone seems to be able to confidently identify WF socks, but I'll assume the assessment is accurate. Wonderfool's bots have caused significant vandalism in the past. --Yair rand (talk) 04:14, 8 January 2013 (UTC)


  1. Symbol abstain vote.svg Abstain because Asturian really does need some help but at the same time, WF and a bot is a little worrying. Still, I think his Asturian is better than his Polish by a long shot and Pofficerbot didn't cause too much wreckage, right? In fact, I think those are the only Polish inflected forms we have. —Μετάknowledgediscuss/deeds 01:41, 2 January 2013 (UTC)

  • Obsolete -- the prospective bot owner has been blocked indefinitely during the voting period (for reasons unrelated to this particular bot request). -- Gauss (talk) 23:08, 10 January 2013 (UTC)
