After a hiatus, I'm back. Yes, my Toolserver account did expire, making the feedback tool not work. I'm happy it is up at bluegoblin's account now, but it doesn't work. I've started on a version at Wikimedia Labs. It also doesn't appear for anonymous Vector users, which IMO needs to be fixed. Frozen Windwant to be chilly? 23:21, 17 February 2012 (UTC)

Rename request

Hello. I'm sorry if this is not the right place to request it, but I request renaming my following accounts:

  • محمد الجداوي → Avocato
  • GedawyBot → AvocatoBot
  • Confirmation link: [1]
  • Reason: Privacy reasons

Please, delete all my userpages and talk pages of these accounts before renaming and I will create them later .Thanks in advance.--M.Gedawy 15:21, 15 July 2012 (UTC)

Both accounts done. -Barras talk 15:37, 15 July 2012 (UTC)


Hi Barras, how are you? Thought I'd pop in over here again. Any recommendations on where I should start? Where am I most needed? Regards, Kennedy (talk) 12:52, 18 July 2012 (UTC)

Am I doing it right? :P Kennedy (talk) 13:57, 18 July 2012 (UTC)
... And well, help is needed to fill those lists. Reading WT:SE would probably be also a good idea! ;-) -Barras talk 17:35, 18 July 2012 (UTC)
Ah, thanks. I'll take a look at SE. Cheers. Kennedy (talk) 11:55, 23 July 2012 (UTC)

Name change

Hi Barras, I was wondering if you could rename my Simple Wiktionary username to M.O.X, inline with my enwiki name change? Thanks, Ancient Apparition (talk) 11:05, 23 July 2012 (UTC)

Done. -Barras talk 11:23, 23 July 2012 (UTC)


Hello! Thanks for your previous help on an other project. Can you please guide me how I can have a bot account/access on pa.wiktionary. I strictly need it there (at present, for interwikis only). --Itar buttar (talk) 05:25, 8 December 2012 (UTC)

Request the Bot flag here, other stuff will be done there for gaining a flag. -Barras talk 06:29, 8 December 2012 (UTC)
Thanks for the quicker reply. Requests are easy to made but I wanna learn about a bot , I've some questions:
  1. It seems to create new account for the same, so if I got a bot flag would I need to first log out of my current account to use the bot?
  2. I read that some basic knowledge of a/any programming language is needed (although I've the quiet knowledge of C), how?
  3. Can bot accounts be renamed later as normal usernames?

Please answer and I need the bot flag to use (mostly) on pa.wiktionary or may be also on pa.wikipedia, so is it okay to request where you said? --Itar buttar (talk) 07:19, 8 December 2012 (UTC)

Hell, if you really don't even know those very basics, then it is better to not run a bot at all. -Barras talk 16:58, 9 December 2012 (UTC)
