Request to manually add "bot flag" to past edits by bot account
Closed, DeclinedPublic


I got reported that the past edits made using my bot account (Bottine) were missing the "bot flag".
Thus, it would be very great if this flag could be manually added to these edits in the database.
All edits are on, there are exactly 2736 of them, made on 23 March.

I know this data is stored for 30 days only, but the day after I've already got several reports, and I don't want to pollute the users' watchlist (and my mailbox ;) for the next 30 days.

This would be very, very appreciated. Thanks in advance!

This seems a Wikimedia-Site-requests (correctly tagged), not a DBA task (database administrators are responsible for handling the servers, but the content is never touched by us. If there is a set of edits to do, those are normally done by a maintenance script, which all deployers can handle. Add me back if you need specifically sysadmin assistance.

One week already, I got no more reports about this. If there is no one willing to nonetheless fix it, I think this ticket can just be closed.
