I made some edits as you can see in Special:Contributions/Dexbot and I'm well aware of bot programming and Wikidata (see Special:CentralAuth/Dexbot). I'm doing this per User:GerardM's request. Thanks Amir (talk) 22:05, 20 October 2014 (UTC)

What is criteria(s) to adding links? If I'm not mistaken, User:YiFeiBot made similar changes. --EugeneZelenko (talk) 13:58, 21 October 2014 (UTC)
It should have a valid link to an article in Wikipedia (via Template:W or direct link) in parameter "Name" in Template:creator. My initial run showed me there are lots of links need to be added. Amir (talk) 14:56, 21 October 2014 (UTC)
  • I had a look at all the test edits made on 20 October, and they all look fine to me. I am happy to approve this request, either for a one-off or a regularly scheduled run, whatever suits the operator best. odder (talk) 10:17, 28 October 2014 (UTC)
    @Odder: A regular task is good since wikidata is growing and it can be used later for new people. Amir (talk) 14:44, 28 October 2014 (UTC)
    @Amir: Sure, whichever you like. If no objections are voiced, I'll close the request as approved after 24 hours. Thanks :-) odder (talk) 16:16, 28 October 2014 (UTC)
    @odder: 48 hours have passed and no objection. Amir (talk) 22:59, 30 October 2014 (UTC)
    @Amir: Sorry, I totally forgot about this request! Looks like Eugene closed it in the meantime. odder (talk) 17:31, 31 October 2014 (UTC)
