[Bridgebot] Bridge #wikipedia-bn to https://t.me/BanglaWikipedia
Closed, ResolvedPublic

Description

Requested by @Jony:

[08:23]  <  ZI_Jony> Can @wmtelegram_bot also work for https://t.me/BanglaWikipedia and #wikipedia-bn (IRC). I've added @wmtelegram_bot on Bangla Wikipedia telegram group.

Event Timeline

This would be a good time to actually document all the little things that doing this requires at https://wikitech.wikimedia.org/wiki/Tool:Bridgebot. The current docs read like I wrote them right after I learned all the bits and didn't remember what I had to learn. :)

Try to avoid copy wm-bot4 (wm-bot) and AsimovBot messages from IRC.

I just want to note that this task should not have been accepted in the first place. This was done without any community consultation and this is wrong.

The bot was removed from the channel upon discussion with the administrators. Further approval needs community consensus.

I'm sorry that I did not understand the power dynamics here. I guess I assumed that there was consensus and did not actually push for proof that that conversation had occurred within the Bengali language community.

bd808 moved this task from To Do to Done on the Tool-bridgebot board.
