I've seen relatively poor behavior from this user on the English Wikipedia and suggest denying this request. —Locke Coletc 08:02, 6 April 2008 (UTC)
Note that I am running a bot similar to this on the En Wikipedia called John Bot III. Compwhiz II(Talk)(Contribs) 15:54, 6 April 2008 (UTC)
Two wrongs make a right. —Locke Coletc 18:16, 6 April 2008 (UTC)
Well I Apologize for what I did over there. Compwhiz II(Talk)(Contribs) 21:53, 6 April 2008 (UTC)

Pictogram-voting-question.svg Question Filbot is running on the toolserver; will yours do that too? How? Another thing: Is this the code to be used here? (Note: I am code-0, so these questions are more to raise general awareness about your bot than anything else).

Locke Cole: this is a bot request. Whereas there should be an effort for everybody to be courteous, I still fail to see what some sort of vague "poor behaviour" statements can contribute anything to this discussion. I'm more interested in bot performance - is the bot account rude? Patrícia msg 12:12, 8 April 2008 (UTC)

If the operator is rude, what are the odds that issues and concerns will be dealt with rudely as well? —Locke Coletc 13:37, 8 April 2008 (UTC)
Where has the operator misbehaved? Has this affected bot performance? Has the operator's behaviour affected discussions about the bot on Does the bot still have a flag on despite such concerns? Has there ever been a discussion about removing bot flag per operator behaviour?
What I'm interested in are clear pointers, not vague accusations. If you can please provide them, that will be much appreciated. Patrícia msg 14:25, 8 April 2008 (UTC)
Hi! That code was modified to match Wikipedia's protocols, So it will use the exact same one used by Filbot. At the moment I am in line for a TS account, So it will be. Thanks, Compwhiz II(Talk)(Contribs) 22:46, 8 April 2008 (UTC)
Usually we ask for a test run before granting flag, so I think you will have to wait for the TS account before that. Patrícia msg 14:08, 9 April 2008 (UTC)
I could run it on my computer, unless you need it to be on the tool server. Compwhiz II(Talk)(Contribs) 19:49, 9 April 2008 (UTC)
No, your own box is fine. Please do a test run at low speed - 50 edits? I appreciate Patricia's comments above, but Commons is mellow and you'll not be received well if you're not. I'm not saying you're un-mellow (I haven't looked), it's just a friendly reminder (and also currently reminding myself of this). – Mike.lifeguard | @en.wb 14:56, 11 April 2008 (UTC)

(undent) Sorry for the delay. School is currently taking priority over Wikiing. Sorry, Compwhiz II(Talk)(Contribs) 17:25, 14 April 2008 (UTC)

✓ Done. I went past 50 edits because of me working on John Bot III on the enwiki, so sorry :P. Compwhiz II(Talk)(Contribs) 20:37, 17 April 2008 (UTC)
That's fine :). Sorry for the delay in commenting. I don't see any problems, and you already have another flag around here, so all's cool with me, but I have a request: personally (and this is really just a personal feeling of mine), I think it's better to sign the warnings with your name rather than the bot. Filnik does that; could you do it too? Cheers, Patrícia msg 21:25, 22 April 2008 (UTC)
Absolutely! (makes code change) Compwhiz II(Talk)(Contribs) 02:21, 23 April 2008 (UTC)
