Could you please make a test run? --EugeneZelenko (talk) 14:39, 27 July 2009 (UTC)
I get the following error: "You can't upload a new version because your account is too new." I don't know for how long that'll last, but I could make a test run from this account if that's okay. Btd (talk) 16:09, 27 July 2009 (UTC)
Tried doing a test run (with btdbot) for changing the description pages, but since the change adds external links the bot is stopped by a captcha. This too seems to work from this account (tried one run), so I guess the btdbot account is too new for this also? How do you want me to proceed? Btd (talk) 10:48, 28 July 2009 (UTC)
Probably wait to 4 days until bot's account became auto-confirmed. --EugeneZelenko (talk) 14:43, 28 July 2009 (UTC)
I set confirmed status for this account. --EugeneZelenko (talk) 14:46, 29 July 2009 (UTC)
Thanks. Completed a test run with ten uploads and ten desc. page edits. Btd (talk) 15:31, 29 July 2009 (UTC)
Looks OK for me. --EugeneZelenko (talk) 14:47, 30 July 2009 (UTC)

Should we grant a bot flag or not? I think the bot operator should comment here. I've left them a note on their home wiki. Kanonkas // talk // e-mail // 16:43, 19 August 2009 (UTC)

I'd love to get it set so I can get started on updating the graphs :-) Btd (talk) 17:20, 19 August 2009 (UTC)
Okay. I'll grant the bot flag in two days. If there are any concerns, please say so. Kanonkas // talk // e-mail // 17:23, 19 August 2009 (UTC)
Bot flag given. I'm closing this as an ✓  approved bot . Kanonkas // talk // e-mail // 07:15, 22 August 2009 (UTC)
