@GeoffreyT2000 Explaining why you were proposing the change in the RfC lead probably would have helped, although I'm not surprised it's not going over well. This didn't seem like something that would.

I'm not sure if anybody's working on this, but it's still a problem. https://en.wikipedia.org/w/index.php?title=Wikipedia%3AArticles_for_deletion%2FWilliam_Herp&type=revision&diff=838375117&oldid=740513135

@kaldari Did the German bots really use that much of it?

Yeah, I've pretty much stopped using the tool for now. Hopefully you get something useful up soon.

@Crow @kaldari @Earwig I can agree with that.

@Compassionate727 It's funny, I asked nearly the exact same question...

Re point #2, can we argue that CSB is user-initiated on the principle that a user submitting an article implicitly triggers a check? Maybe bury it in an edit notice when you create a page?

But even if we successfully argue that, it's still not a "search-like experience", is it?

I actually have a question. Regarding Bing's terms of service, could we argue that CorenSearchBot is user-initiated, since the act of creating a page, which is entirely user-driven, is what causes CorenSearchBot to enter the search?

Would it still cost $10k if only Coren were using Google?

@Majora, @Josve05a and @tom29739: Don't worry, the Fundraising team has its own schedule, and they're not going to put up banners for a specific line item in the middle of the year. :) Folks are still working on where the money will come from, but we won't need to host an emergency bake sale.

But I like bake sales :D The whole community gets together and try to scam bypassers to buy gross cakes.
Ok, joke aside, I was just thinking as a last way out in case nothing pans out anywhere, we (as community, not WMF) could host own "banners" (not saying that the money would go specifically to copyvio-tools (BEANS), but e.g to community driven projects/tools) and then give all the money to (e.g.) Earwig to pay Google himself.
But, as I said, it was just a strange idea I got, nothing really serious or so.
