Hello! I'm Plasmarelais from MA/de. Maybe you've noticed my contributions here, mainly setting or fixing interwiki links. Recently I ran our bot on MA/de, PlasmarelaisBot, setting and fixing interwiki links. It's going through all languages to add/edit/delete new/changed/broken IWL on MA/de. Now I also got a list of en-pages, where IWL to other existing pages are missing. I already posted that at the page Bot requests, but haven't recieved no answer. This bot is already successfully working on MA/cs, MA/de, MA/fr, MA/it and MA/pl.

So I ask you if you would like the bot to add these IWL on your pages. If so, I would request a botflag for your wiki from w:User:Avatar and the bot may start working. If you have any questions about the bot or the way it is working or anything else, just contact me on my german user talk. It's also possible just add IWL in the first time, without editing or deleting any links. Thank you for your anwer! --Plasmarelais Ξ TALK Ξ Ξ 16:56, 30 May 2009 (UTC)

Since I haven't recieved any answer, neither here nor there: maybe this is the wrong place for questions like these? Should I rather post this to another subforum? Or better ask one of your admins? So I ask to help me for I really want to add those links. Thank you very much! --Plasmarelais Ξ TALK Ξ Ξ 09:55, 6 June 2009 (UTC)

I think the reason you haven't gotten an answer may be because no one here feels like they have authority to give "permission" since we don't have any formal hierarchy. I for one am okay with it, but admin or not, I don't claim to be able to give "permission". --- Jaz 16:31, 6 June 2009 (UTC)

Hmm, I see. I know that a single person can't give me an absolute "OK", I just wanted to ask the community which is present here if I may have the bot run. I didn't want to start it silently without anyone noticing it. I think it will be the best to set up a user page for the bot, describing its job and abilities. And if no one really protests agianst it, I will ask for bot flag and start working. Finally everyone can contact me and an admin can use the "emergency button" in case of things going wrong. Thanks a lot for reply! --Plasmarelais Ξ TALK Ξ Ξ 16:45, 6 June 2009 (UTC)

Memory Alpha:Bot requests is where you should place your request, which I see you've already done. I say knock yourself out and go for it. :) — Morder 17:43, 6 June 2009 (UTC)
My mistake, you are asking to use a bot and not ask that a bot do something. :) — Morder 17:45, 6 June 2009 (UTC)
