  • Very long in Wikimedia, give him +bot that he can continue his work ;) --WarX 20:10, 6 November 2007 (UTC)
  • User:Derbeth is a long time wiki-user who is working hard cross the Wiktionarys since he is interested in languages. He is very experienced also with the use and programming of bots, I think he should be trusted in running this bot,--birdy geimfyglið (:> )=|
  • I'd like to note that this is not a vote. It should be a discussion about the bot and its tasks, not its operator. Because of that, I have removed the {{support}} templates. O2 () 21:58, 06 November 2007 (GMT)
  • Hey, we on Wiktionary are waiting for these files and you keep raising bureaucratic obstacles. Stop this BS, the bot has proved to work. Give it bot flag so that it can continue this work 23:48, 6 November 2007 (UTC)
  • Speedy approval - I realize we had to stop this bot because it was doing mass amounts of work without the flag, which causes issues (among others, really confusing the recent changes list). User is well trusted, and bot has already proven faithful and useful - no need for the bureaucracy. Patstuart 05:29, 7 November 2007 (UTC)
  • No objections. I think the first bureaucrat that comes by can promote. -- Bryan (talk to me) 11:35, 7 November 2007 (UTC)
