Support[edit]

  1. Symbol support vote.svg Support although it seems somewhat pointless since we have very few broken or double redirects (66 and 10 at the time of this vote). DTLHS (talk) 23:38, 12 September 2018 (UTC)
  2. Symbol support vote.svg Support, now that my concerns have been met. I agree with DTLHS, but if it really is true that nobody else wants to do it, we should let this bot operate. —Μετάknowledgediscuss/deeds 18:02, 14 September 2018 (UTC)

Oppose[edit]

Symbol oppose vote.svg Oppose. Creating this vote was Emaus's first edit here; I would like some reason to trust a bot operator first. Also, we have multiple bots that remove double redirects; I will not support adding another one unless presented with evidence that those bots are not being run any more. —Μετάknowledgediscuss/deeds 01:04, 11 September 2018 (UTC)
Hello! My bot has global bot flag and processes redirects on many projects. As I see, now there is only bot that processes double redirects on Wiktionary. And broken redirects are not maintained at least a half of year (for example, see Appendix:Proto-Central Malayo-Polynesian/asu). --Emaus (talk) 23:23, 12 September 2018 (UTC)
@Emaus, thanks for replying. That's a helpful start. Could you please do a test run (~20 edits)? I've looked at your bot's account on other wikis, so if the edits here are fine, I will switch my vote to support. —Μετάknowledgediscuss/deeds 23:31, 12 September 2018 (UTC)
Yes check.svg Done. --Emaus (talk) 13:26, 16 September 2018 (UTC)
"Also, we have multiple bots that remove double redirects" Such as? DTLHS (talk) 23:34, 12 September 2018 (UTC)
Well, User:タチコマ robot for one, and another bot that is long inactive. I also thought that you were checking for double redirects every so often! —Μετάknowledgediscuss/deeds 23:45, 12 September 2018 (UTC)
Doesn't User:JackBot fix them too? Per utramque cavernam 08:29, 14 September 2018 (UTC)
  1. Symbol oppose vote.svg Oppose per Metaknowledge. --SanctMinimalicen (talk) 23:11, 11 September 2018 (UTC)
  2. Symbol oppose vote.svg Oppose as above SemperBlotto (talk) 18:12, 14 September 2018 (UTC)
