I'm doing XO implementations in Australia and helping support the Pacific trials anyway, so I thought I'd get onto the support gang and help out :) Adam told me to request a teamwiki account.

Requests for bot status

  • Contribot (talk · contribs) - posting new contributors-program projects to the wiki. Requested by chris and ffm.
    Is there a reason for these edits to disappear from Recentchanges? Why else would the contribot need a bot flag? --Sj talk 19:07, 3 March 2008 (EST)
  • Mchuabot (talk · contribs) - something of a bot testbed for me; initial functionality will be using pywikipedia-based bot to work with (semantic) forms and templates for collecting/aggregating data from community testing Requested by Mchua.
    In principle this is fine. Please create a userpage for the bot describing what it does and who runs it (even though the name seems self-explanatory now :), and start using the bot without the flag. Note that the flag is only needed once the bot starts to make significant changes in a way that offbalances RC; as long as RC isn't overwhelmed, we don't need any bot flags at all. --Sj talk 08:07, 16 August 2008 (UTC)
conditional support -- Sure, but I insist that Mel document the 'domain' files for use with our mediawiki first. Seth 00:14, 6 September 2008 (UTC)
