I am the current operator of JoRobot (talkcontribslogs). It was a joint effort with Joancreus (talkcontribslogs), and he's indeed inactive, but myself and the bot are quite active in the Catalan wikipedia. Sorry I didn't update the wikidata page, but I am responsible for this bot's work.

As for my edits about IUCN identifiers, I am making them semi-automatically for efficiency. I have checked some of the violations and they are duplicates that should be merged.

How can we go about deblocking the bot?

MisterSynergy (talkcontribs)

Hey Joutbis, please make sure that…

  • … the bot page lists you as the operator
  • … the bot page indicates that it has a valid bot flag (plus link to the request for bot flag page)
  • … the bot talk page redirects to your talk page
  • … the bot only operates within the scope of the bot flag request; if the bot has other jobs meanwhile, please file new requests for each of them
  • User:Succu's concerns at User talk:Joancreus are addressed

Although I am going to unblock the bot now, I suggest to make all these repairs before you re-activate the bot. (notify bureaucrats @Lymantria, Ymblanter who are responsible for bot flag approval).

OK, thanks, I'm working on it. I assume that bureaucrats will set the bot flag if the task is approved without me having to ask specifically for it, right?

Succu (talkcontribs)

First of all please fix all the introduced errors. BTW you should act here with your user name, and not with your bot name.

Joutbis (talkcontribs)

I will, just give me a couple days to test the new template version with the items in that list.

Technically you already have a bot flag, so you will not get a second one.

However, any activity that is not covered by your first request at Wikidata:Requests_for_permissions/Bot/JoRobot should be approved by separate requests. Succu raised a concern at the Administrators' noticeboard that the activity of your bot is out of the scope of that request. With regards to the media legend import I have to say that I share his opinion.

Thus you need to file a new request by yourself at Wikidata:Requests for permissions/Bot. If you already have a bot flag, then this is pretty straight forward. They will probably ask you to do some “test edits” with the bot and approve your request then…
