Bots perform their jobs under a different user name than the owner, so that it is easy to tell them apart. Also, bot edits are hidden from pages like Special:Recentchanges to keep them from flooding the list. To see the bot edits click "show bot edits" at the top of Newest changes.

The most popular type of bot is called the Python Wikipedia Robot Framework or "pywikipediabot" for short.

Bot approvals

To get approved to run a bot, describe your bot below, create a new account for it, run some tests for a short time (a couple of days, a dozen edits), and get agreement from other users that the bot's use is a good idea. Once that is done, a formal request for a bot flag is made at meta:Requests for bot status.

I request that Dinamik-bot gets a bot flag. The bot will be add and fix interwiki links.

  • Operator: Dinamik

  • Technical details: autonomous mode
  • already has a bot flag on: az, be-x-old, ca, cs, el, es, fa, fi, he, hy, id, it, ka, mk, nl, no, pl, pt, ro, ru, simple, sr, sv, tr, uk, zh, zh-yue

Thank you! Dinamik 17:30, 29 октябры 2009 (UTC)[ответить]

  • Good idea, we are in contact with this bot owner. It'd be great to use the bot at os.wiki too. Amikeco (admin)


Please give a bot bit to User:SieBot so it will not flood your RC as it adds interwiki links. User:SieBot is active on about 120 Wikipedias at this moment. Cheers! Siebrand 12:03, 5 августа 2007 (UTC)

Seems a good idea. You'll have to turn to meta-bureaucrats though. - Amikeco 12:33, 5 августа 2007 (UTC)
No problem. I know how it works. Will follow up there about a week after this request. Cheers! Siebrand 21:54, 5 августа 2007 (UTC)
There is unfortunately a huge backlog at meta. Usually bot requests are taken care of within 48 hours, but now it is taking longer. The bot bit for SieBot was set at meta on 22 August by Guillon[1]. Cheers! Siebrand 06:58, 30 августа 2007 (UTC)


Seems to have been blocked because it doesn't have a bot bit. Well, if that's the problem, then give it one. Works a lot better than blocking it, don't you think? - Andre Engels 17:07, 28 октября 2007 (UTC)

  • Description: Standard interwiki.py.

Anyway, I'm requesting usage of this bot now. And since it's necessary to have a botbit then, I also say I have no objections whatsoever against giving it a botbit. - Andre Engels 18:13, 28 октября 2007 (UTC)

I am not against this bot having its status here. Please follow ask for the flag at meta:Requests for bot status. Amikeco

No reason to be against, but mind our bot policy: you will have to gain the flag via meta, as described on this page. The policy is standard, there should be no problem about it for you. Amikeco 10:53, 8 мартъийы 2011 (UTC)[ответить]

  • Looks like a standard bot, you'll need to have the flag at meta according to the standard bot policy, and good luck! Sorry for short term blocking, while we have few edits here, the RecentChanges page is useful to monitor them, bot edits are not welcome in that list. Amikeco 07:31, 22 июны 2011 (UTC)[ответить]
You had them enough and we told that by a short block, that's how it works :) Amikeco 19:23, 22 июны 2011 (UTC)[ответить]


  • Operator  : Hedwig in Washington
  • Automatic or Manually Assisted : automatic
  • Programming Language(s)  : Python (pywikipedia), daily update
  • Function Summary  : Interwiki, Internationalization by removing chaos in Babel so it can be used properly and easy. Shortly double redirects will follow.
  • Already has a bot flag (Y/N)  : Yes, DE, EN, AR, NN and LB, others pending see here
  • Function Details  : just using the standard interwiki.py; parameters: -auto -all - log -catr

- Meta won't grant global flag, they want about 100.000 edits. I am 94k short, so would you pleas grant bot flag on os-wiki?

- I made 6 test-edits here so far. I think they are all ok.

Thanks for your time!


  • Operator: Bouron
  • Mode: automatic
  • Function: Transfer of potd descriptions in ossetic (like this) from Commons to oswiki if local one doesn't exist.
  • Software: Python, pywikipedia
  • Another bot flags: Have not bot flags yet
  • Tests I have tested it on my wiki for tests. Here is demonstration of transferring potd's and their descriptions in russian language for near 30 days.

--Bouron 21:54, 11 октябры 2011 (UTC)[ответить]

Do you expect Ossetic speakers to give descriptions at Commons first? Amikeco
These are some examples of having description in commons and not having it here.
commons:Template:Potd/2011-09-17 (os) - Шаблон:Potd/2011-09-17 (os)
commons:Template:Potd/2011-09-18 (os) - Шаблон:Potd/2011-09-18 (os)
commons:Template:Potd/2011-09-19 (os) - Шаблон:Potd/2011-09-19 (os)
commons:Template:Potd/2011-09-20 (os) - Шаблон:Potd/2011-09-20 (os)
That descriptions were made by me. And I am going to continue describing potd in Commons.
...Commons and oswiki can have different ossetian speaking users,
...Transfer of potd descriptions is of routine work kind,
...It would be wonderful if we have insurance and if someone forgets to translate description to Ossetic we will have Ossetic description instead of Russian.--Bouron 11:35, 12 октябры 2011 (UTC)[ответить]
What will be done if there is a local translation? It will be replaced, I presume? And we will see here, which one is better or probably do the third, афтæ? Amikeco 21:38, 12 октябры 2011 (UTC)[ответить]
The bot will contribute only if local potd doesn't exist. But I think we can make special kind of potd templates in the future, such as potd/2011-10-10 (commons). And bot will transfer potd there. Then we can fix potd template and if local potd doesn't exist or it is in russian, commons potd will be shown.--Bouron 21:52, 12 октябры 2011 (UTC)[ответить]
Well, nice perspective, I love it. Please, warn Blanter when some serious changes occur. Now he is the volunteer pushing the PotD files to smaller wikipedias. Amikeco 11:54, 13 октябры 2011 (UTC)[ответить]
OK.--Bouron 12:33, 13 октябры 2011 (UTC)[ответить]

Bot policy

Hello. To facilitate steward granting of bot access, I'd like to implement the standard bot policy on this wiki. This will involve creating a redirect to this page from Project:Bot policy, and adding a line at the top noting that it is used here. In particular, this policy allows automatic acceptance of known interlanguage linking bots (if this page says that is acceptable), which form the vast majority of such requests.

Please read the text at m:Bot policy before commenting. If you object, please say so; it will be implemented in one week if there is no objection, since it is particularly written to streamline bot requests on wikis with little or no community interested in bot access requests. —Pathoschild 17:03:36, 13 ноябры 2007 (UTC) 17:03, 13 ноября 2007 (UTC)[ответить]

I would gladly accept such a policy, because we often have some kind of misunderstanding with bot owners. :) Could you please tell in a more algorythmical way, what I should do. Amikeco 18:45, 13 ноября 2007 (UTC)
I added the redirect, and a note at the top of the page explaining that the bot policy is used. Does that look okay? —Pathoschild 23:48:37, 13 ноябры 2007 (UTC)[ответить]
Yes, you really save lots of my time for other work. Thanks a lot. Amikeco

Global bots

Hello. The standard bot policy was updated to allow global bots, which are now technically possible. These are trusted bots that will be given bot access on every wiki that allows global bots (the local policy or request page must explicitly allow them, or they won't get access on this wiki). The current requirements for global bots are:

  • a global bot must only maintain interlanguage links or fix double-redirects;
  • a global bot must have already been active on several wikis, with long-term contributions demonstrating its trustworthiness.

Does anyone object to allowing global bots on this wiki? I'll update the local policy in a week if there are no objections. Thanks. —Pathoschild 15:51:23, 28 июлы 2008 (UTC)[ответить]
