Bot's tasks for which permission is being sought: ArchiveBot's partial replacement for archiving talk pages and other discussion pages.

Automatic or manually assisted: automatic

Edit type (e.g. Continuous, daily, one time run): daily

Maximum edit rate (e.g. edits per minute): 6 per minute

Bot flag requested: (Y/N): Y

Programming language(s): Pywikibot/archivebot.py [1]

As a partial replacement of ArchiveBot it will archive old sections from talk pages and other discussion pages where requested. It needs a bot flag otherwise it will trigger hundreds of email notifications when working on user talk pages. This is a multi-maintainer bot; as mentioned at Commons:Bots/Requests/Revibot I, Revi and I agreed on co-maintaining this bot for Commons, sharing Tool Labs account "archiving" for this. Lastly, it's Archive"r"Bot, not ArchiveBot. (Sorry for the confusing name.) whym (talk) 09:57, 28 May 2015 (UTC)

  • Agree, as per prior discussion for Revibot I which this supersedes. If archivebot is going to gather dust, a usurp would seem in order should this avoid any confusion. -- (talk) 13:42, 28 May 2015 (UTC)
  • Why not to turn ArchiveBot into multi-maintainer mode? --EugeneZelenko (talk) 14:01, 28 May 2015 (UTC)
@EugeneZelenko: Without passwd? Fastily has retired (and deleted the toolslabs stuff), and i am not sure if he like to give out the pw. --Steinsplitter (talk) 14:07, 28 May 2015 (UTC)
I think this will worth to try. --EugeneZelenko (talk) 14:10, 28 May 2015 (UTC)

@EugeneZelenko and : Sharing nor usurpation of the account is unlikely. He intended to keep it when I emailed him a couple of days ago. whym (talk) 14:25, 3 June 2015 (UTC)

  • Symbol support vote.svg Support - This morning I used a script to archive about 40 old sections which were clogging up various admin boards. I don't mind doing this as an interim measure but the job will be done far more efficiently by bot. Green Giant (talk) 09:42, 2 June 2015 (UTC)

Can you run a quick demo please? Suggest running it for two or three minutes, over a range of page types, then switching off. If all looks OK, it should be easy to approve then. --MichaelMaggs (talk) 12:58, 3 June 2015 (UTC)

The test run looks ok and he source code is the same as used by the old bot. Bot operators are also trusted. IMHO fine to approve this task asap. --Steinsplitter (talk) 14:13, 3 June 2015 (UTC)
@MichaelMaggs: Done. 3 failures (1 2 3) were caused by the fact that the bot was too new. With the current edit count it's not an issue any more. (1 2 3) whym (talk) 14:25, 3 June 2015 (UTC)

✓[OK] Approved and bot flag set. Could you please make sure that the bot's page includes all of the mandatory information (see box I in the table above)? It seems to be missing:

  • Maximum edit rate: The bot's maximum edit rate (eg edits per minute)

Thanks. --MichaelMaggs (talk) 15:59, 3 June 2015 (UTC)

Please remove botflag from the old archovebot account. --Steinsplitter (talk) 14:51, 4 June 2015 (UTC)
✓ Done. Would someone please update the old ArchiveBot user page?
