Forums: Index > Wiki discussion > Bot rights request for Fluffle Bot

Hello everyone. I'd like to request bot rights for User:Fluffle Bot, which I plan on using for non-automated, menial housekeeping edits such as categorizing videos and images, sourcing images, etc. I do have a bot flag and I use it frequently, but it doesn't stop menial edits from crowding up my contributions page and edit statistics, and obscuring more important edits on my contributions page.

I don't agree with your usage, but I think it fits within the criteria most people use for bot edits and I know you will use it responsibly and without screwing things up. ~Bobogoobo (talk) Lyra_speaks_S2E25.png 01:22, October 2, 2013 (UTC)

Symbol support vote Support - You can also ask for sysop rights for it to perform mass deletions and what-not (usually involving comments in some way).  Food 25px-Surprise.png  05:48, October 2, 2013 (UTC)

I don't think that may be necessary, since I'm only doing non-automated tasks. Just to clarify, though, what do you mean exactly? Steph physarum (talk) 23:23, October 2, 2013 (UTC)
When you delete a page that has a lot of comments, each one shows up on the delete log as a separate entry. Using an account with a bot flag makes it so that it doesn't flood RecentChanges to the point that you can't see any other entries.  Food 25px-Surprise.png  00:49, October 3, 2013 (UTC)
Ah, I see. I guess that would come in handy. I just realized that the bot would need imagecontrol rights to do a lot of stuff, so I will extend my request to admin rights. If that's overstepping, imagecontrol will suffice for most situations. Steph physarum (talk) 03:16, October 3, 2013 (UTC)
Eenope. You're allowed to request the rights that you main account has. :P  Food 25px-Surprise.png  03:38, October 3, 2013 (UTC)

Pictogram voting comment Comment We don't need to send this to Wikia, people. Steph on her bot could either be given a bot flag by a bureaucrat (if they can) OR Steph's bot can also be given admin rights (which is allowed) and let the bot set itself a flag (which is usually temporary however we could take advantage of this and leave it there permanently). Just putting this here before the discussion closes. – Ozuzanna 17:04, October 4, 2013 (UTC)

Just gonna push this one along; this isn't big enough of a change to worry about a 10 day discussion timeframe.  FANMADE_Animated_Derpy_Hooves_desktop_ponies_sprite.gif Sig1.png Sig2.png  21:13, October 6, 2013 (UTC)
