Housekeeping[edit]

Neither Wikipedia:Bots/Requests for approval/SteiniBot nor Wikipedia:Bots/Requests for approval/SteiniBot 2 were ever transcluded here, and the operator is the sockpuppet of a CU blocked user (see User talk:JJBullet#Other accounts). Would a BAG member take a look and close them? --DannyS712 (talk) 20:05, 16 July 2019 (UTC)

Also, Wikipedia:Bots/Requests for approval/WongathonBot was created in April - the operator's 1 global edit was its creation --DannyS712 (talk) 04:39, 6 August 2019 (UTC)

BRFA is backlogged[edit]

Hey everyone, BRFA is backlogged again. At time of writing, there are 8 requests in need of BAG attention, and 9 requests where the trial has been completed. Could we please get some attention on these? Courtesy ping for active BAG members: @Anomie, @Cyberpower678, @Headbomb, @HighInBC, @MBisanz, @MusikAnimal, @Primefac, @Slakr, @SQL, @The Earwig, @TheSandDoctor, @Xaosflux, @Hellknowz, @Jarry1250, @Kingpin13, @Maxim, @MaxSem, @Tawker. Thanks, FASTILY 23:37, 5 August 2019 (UTC)

Yes, we can always use help - but to be fair on the "18" - 10 of these are from just 2 operators, so the number of "people" waiting is much lower. — xaosflux Talk 00:39, 6 August 2019 (UTC)
Sure, but I don't see how that changes anything. Even if only two people were waiting, that's two too many imo. -FASTILY 06:18, 6 August 2019 (UTC)
I did 2 yesterday, next :D — xaosflux Talk 11:21, 6 August 2019 (UTC)
We're down to 4 with trial completed (and one of those marked for attention) and only 2 open. I would argue that waiting for a BRFA is a very likely possibility at any given point, especially when a single editor might put in a half-dozen requests in as many days.

Review request[edit]

Monkbot 16:

It's not clear that there is consensus for this task, there is a discussion at AN that is WP:SNOWing for a revert of the changes that make this necessary.

Even if the changes are approved, it may make more sense to add the changes to WP:AWB general fixes for a couple of years, before finishing off by bot.

All the best: Rich Farmbrough, 12:41, 6 September 2019 (UTC).

As closing BAG, I have read through the majority of the AN discussion and find that the consensus, while snowing, seems to be swinging away from "mass revert of everything" to only undoing those changes not specifically addressed at the RFC. Thus, I feel the changing-of-params change will stand and the task can proceed. I do appreciate the botop's voluntary delay of implementation, though. Primefac (talk) 12:52, 6 September 2019 (UTC)
Trappist the monk, AN discussion has been closed and the conversion process can proceed. Primefac (talk) 19:24, 6 September 2019 (UTC)

Wikipedia:Bots/Requests for approval/BubbleArtBot[edit]

I just wanted to notify BAG of this BRFA for a bot without an identified operator and who is editing their own BRFA and other pages. --Trialpears (talk) 19:09, 29 October 2019 (UTC)

@Trialpears: thanks, that BRFA has been closed, account is softblocked. — xaosflux Talk 19:18, 29 October 2019 (UTC)
