Script nominations

Default Banner.jpg

According to the Wikitravel script policy, scripts have to be approved by administrators. To create a script that runs against Wikitravel, post the name and reason for the script beneath the line below.

Explain why we need the script, why it can't be done by hand, and what the script will do. If 2 administrators voice their support for the script within 7 days, and none oppose it in that period, then a Bureaucrat can assign bot status to your script, and you can begin to run it.

Note that this page is only for script approval on Wikitravel Shared, you will need approval from local administrators on each language version that you wish to run your bot on.

Scripts that have passed through this process can be found in Approved scripts.


I'd like to try links from Wikitravel shared to language versions of Wikitravel and vice versa, since I found a inter-language bot running on Wikimedia Commons. [1]

Also this bot is currently working on 11 language versions of Wikitravel, I'd like to apply for bot flags on the remaining 9 language versions here, because their bureaucrats are inactive or script nomination process doesn't work well. [2]

  • Support. It would be great to see Tatatabot adding "wts" links throughout the language versions—that structure isn't at all in place, and won't be without a bot's help. Regarding eo & fr, try sending Episteme an email. --Peter Talk 07:38, 19 May 2009 (EDT)
    • I sent an email to Episteme just now by using the link you wrote. Thanks. -- Tatata 08:38, 19 May 2009 (EDT)
  • Support. I think Internet Brands (User:JuCo) is the only one who has rights to all versions... but as far as I'm concerned, on the smaller ones, the bot can run even without the bot flag set. Jpatokal 08:22, 19 May 2009 (EDT)
    • Agreed on the smaller ones or underpopulated ones. But if JuCo helps me on this, I'd like to ask for bot flags on those language version. :-) -- Tatata 08:38, 19 May 2009 (EDT)
  • Support. We nominated bureaucrats on pretty much all language versions, so there should be community bcrats that can flip the switches. PS, I was a little distracted and hasty just now, and went ahead and flipped the bot switch for shared, though I should have waited the 7 days. I'll go ahead and leave it for now, but if there are any objections in the next week, I can reverse it then. Sorry bout that ;) – cacahuate talk 20:15, 19 May 2009 (EDT)
    • I sent emails to Aude and Rmx, and left a message on Carmepla's blog. Should I send an email to Evan too? -- Tatata 02:39, 20 May 2009 (EDT)
  • Support for the initiative, though I'm warning you should be patient while I learn how to bot flag. If anybody knows a shortcut, would be much appreciated. Carmepla 17:47, 20 May 2009 (EDT)
Sure, go to ca:special:userrights, enter "Tatatabot" in the field and press enter, click "bots", and then save. --Peter Talk 19:06, 20 May 2009 (EDT)
Done. Thanks for the tip Carmepla 19:11, 21 May 2009 (EDT)
