Discussion[edit]


proposed addendum to this policy[edit]

After thinking about this for a little bit, I think another point should be added to this. Although global bots are great, I think we need to know when is a global bot when we come across one, So i think all global bots should be required to have on their talk page:

  • A description of what the bot does (preferably in english)
  • Clearly stated that the bot is a global bot, with link to its approval on meta
  • A link to the primary contact for the bot (aka link to talk page on home wiki of woner)

This could even be made up into a template. Thoughts? Bawolff 04:55, 23 December 2008 (UTC)
