  • We need this. I don't think you need a bot flag for this. Just run it. -- Bryan (talk to me) 09:15, 31 August 2007 (UTC)
  • Agreed. No objections, and no flag needed. Please provide the ability to subscribe via a link (instead of the content itself) being placed on the user's page. ++Lar: t/c 14:24, 31 August 2007 (UTC)
    • PS, note that the info page, as of this writing, still refers to Wikibooks, not commons. Might want to fix that. :) ++Lar: t/c 14:26, 31 August 2007 (UTC)
  • Don't see potential harm here (but please don't spam :-) --EugeneZelenko 14:36, 31 August 2007 (UTC)
    • I think a flag is better, because it won't fill up recentchanges. I'll make the ability to subscribe to the full version and a link. ~ Wikihermit 14:46, 31 August 2007 (UTC)
  • I would recommend a flag for this, as I (and some others that might comment later) would prefer not to see a flooded RC. This is also to eliminate a [possible] block because of a flooded RC by another admin that may not know of this. (O - RLY?) 01:26, 2 September 2007 (UTC)
  • I am not seeing any objections to granting a flag. Call the question. Please speak up shortly as I will be granting this flag within a day unless someone beats me to it. ++Lar: t/c 01:30, 7 September 2007 (UTC)
