This should be considered fully procedural in nature and is not a reflection on the bot or bot-op. Note that this does not include deleted edits or log entries. See also Project:Requests/User rights/Removal of inactive bot rights. Thanks, --DannyS712 (talk) 16:09, 27 July 2020 (UTC)

DiscussionEdit

On the English Wikipedia, the activity requirements for bots take into account the activity of the operator as well. Would it make sense to do so here? At the very least, you should probably notify the operators of these bots. (I didn't post this on the first removal request because I find it less applicable if the bot has literally never edited). * Pppery * it has begun 20:58, 27 July 2020 (UTC)

Sending the notices now --DannyS712 (talk) 02:36, 29 July 2020 (UTC)
Okay, I notified all of the operators I could find. See https://www.mediawiki.org/w/index.php?title=Special:Contributions/DannyS712&dir=prev&offset=20200729023634&limit=18&target=DannyS712 and https://meta.wikimedia.org/w/index.php?title=Special:Contributions/DannyS712&dir=prev&offset=20200728211027&limit=4&target=DannyS712 - I could not find operators for User:Adi.bot, User:Mobilefrontend, or User:WikiApiary, and will leave notes on the bot talk pages instead --DannyS712 (talk) 02:49, 29 July 2020 (UTC)
All   Done - bots notified at https://www.mediawiki.org/w/index.php?title=Special:Contributions/DannyS712&dir=prev&offset=20200729024957&limit=3&target=DannyS712 --DannyS712 (talk) 02:51, 29 July 2020 (UTC)

Unless anyone has objections, I plan on deflagging the remaining bots in a week or so that have had no operator responses and the operator has been inactive on-wiki for a year or longer (no edits or log entries). --Skizzerz 01:26, 11 August 2020 (UTC)

  All done. Table above updated with final determinations. --Skizzerz 02:00, 18 August 2020 (UTC)
@Skizzerz: thanks so much for your hard work on this --DannyS712 (talk) 11:00, 22 August 2020 (UTC)

Operator responsesEdit

  • Bot account for TheStoneBot still may be useful. Please don't revoke this, if possible. Thanks. --Kaganer (talk) 03:02, 29 July 2020 (UTC)
  • User:Community Tech bot won't need bot rights until the next Developer Wishlist Survey, and there are no plans for this in the near future as far as I know. MusikAnimal talk 03:32, 29 July 2020 (UTC)
    Hmm, but I think the bot is still active on Phabricator and makes occasional runs. Not sure if bot rights on wiki is still needed though. Ainz Ooal Gown (talk) 07:57, 29 July 2020 (UTC)
  • I deflagged Legobot for now, I can always reflag it again if I have something to do. Legoktm (talk) 04:29, 29 July 2020 (UTC)
  • The WikiApiary bot might be flagged because the bot group has the apihighlimits right. WikiApiary does a lot of scraping of sites to see which extensions are installed on which wikis, and may be using mediawiki.org's API in that process to pull down lists of extensions. That being said, lack of an on-wiki contact/owner and lack of source code for the bot doesn't leave me very confident about that statement. --Skizzerz 04:40, 29 July 2020 (UTC)
  • Feel free to remove the flag from SteinsplitterBot. Best --Steinsplitter (talk) 10:38, 29 July 2020 (UTC)
