Discussion

Could you be a bit more specific please about what you intend to do with your bot? --Dschwen (talk) 14:37, 21 February 2013 (UTC)

Since there was zero further input from the requester I will close this as stale soon. --Dschwen (talk) 23:13, 12 March 2013 (UTC)

I want to use bot mainly for mass recategorization or mass replacing of text, see contributions. Maybe, when Wikidata will be able to store links to commons, I'll work on this field too. JAn Dudík (talk) 07:12, 13 March 2013 (UTC)

You mean the several thousand edits your bot made without having a flag? Please don't do that or we will have to block the bot. Recategorizations are already performed by User:Category-bot. And I won't give out a bot flag for a maybe job. I'll close this one. You are welcome to reopen a request if and when you have a specific task (that is not already covered by an existing bot). --Dschwen (talk) 15:26, 13 March 2013 (UTC)

Although I agree that the unapproved volume was inappropriate, the 23 Feb URL format changes like this look useful. So if you can give us a clear, more focused/limited scope, I'd potentially support. --99of9 (talk) 22:44, 13 March 2013 (UTC)

Maybe we could create a template for "URL REKOS", to prevent all those bot edits. --Ricordisamoa 22:23, 25 March 2013 (UTC)

Sorry, I am not daily editor of commons, but sometimes I (or somebody else from cs.wiki) need to do more edits - and looking for somebody with bot, then translate request... Bots are for helping, but this looks to me like bureocracy :-( JAn Dudík (talk) 18:28, 30 May 2013 (UTC)

We need to know what you will be doing (more specifically than "mass recategorization... maybe more"). That's even more important if you're not a regular commons user. I'm sorry if you don't like the bureaucratic nature of these requests, but, think of it as a conversation. Bots are powerful tools, and it's important for the community to have their say about what you propose to do. --99of9 (talk) 18:55, 30 May 2013 (UTC)
@99of9: I think we can close this request as unsuccessful, given the lack of specific plans on using the bot. odder (talk) 16:10, 16 December 2013 (UTC)

Declined per discussion above. Feel free to apply again if you can be more specific about what the bot will be used for. --99of9 (talk) 03:15, 9 January 2014 (UTC)
