Sysop tools

Actually, now that I've been asked whether the bot would need them, I'm starting to change my tune. I've been going through the potion images I'm going to be changing and compiled a list at User:BurnettBot/tasks. Based on that, it would be a LOT of page moves for me to do manually. In addition, I do plan to do this sort of mass image cleanup in other areas in the future, so the ability to move files would be a useful tool for this bot to have. Because of this, I would like to request sysop tools for BurnettBot in addition to the bot flag. Also I'd like to keep this proposal separate from the flag discussion, as although the tools would be greatly beneficial to the bot, they are not required.

Discussion (tools)

Support - As nom. --Aburnett(Talk) 05:04, August 26, 2010 (UTC)

Comment - Those eighty page moves shouldn't take more than twenty minutes manually, or about 5-10 minutes with AWB, which I think would be easily done without a bot. However, if you think you're going to standardize all the image names (at least the items), then it would be easier to do that as a bot. Anyway, I think you'll need to do an RfA for this. ʞooɔ 06:50, August 26, 2010 (UTC)

Oppose - This is a one-off task, that you can easily do on your own account. It's not like AzBot, who needs to constantly update the GEMW graphs. For this task, the use of sysop tools is not justified. --LiquidTalk 12:20, August 26, 2010 (UTC)

Oppose - We can't have a sysopped bot with that name. Neutral, leaning towards support - As Helm said, this is only a one time thing, and it shouldn't take so long to move them without the use of a bot. I'll change to support if you can prove that the bot needs the tools for other reasons. bad_fetustalk 12:36, August 26, 2010 (UTC)

But, Chess is right. We can't have a sysop with that name. --LiquidTalk 12:38, August 26, 2010 (UTC)
I've been a little caught up with college recently, why would this not be possible? HaloTalk 19:21, August 26, 2010 (UTC)
Because BurnettBot sounds so passe. I'd much rather him rename his bot something more reasonable. --LiquidTalk 19:24, August 26, 2010 (UTC)
So that makes it impossible? HaloTalk 19:27, August 26, 2010 (UTC)
(I'm 90% sure that they are joking) --Aburnett(Talk) 01:18, August 27, 2010 (UTC)
Aburnett is right. Took you guys long enough to catch on. Lol --LiquidTalk 01:36, August 27, 2010 (UTC)

Oppose - That's not enough pages to warrant either sysop tools or bot flag. HaloTalk 19:26, August 26, 2010 (UTC)

Oppose - Per Halo. Heck, I'd be willing to move those files later tonight if you want me to. To expand, the changes that you are proposing are not needed. We don't need to fix things that aren't broken. ajr 22:19, August 26, 2010 (UTC)

Section closed - Because granting admin tools to BurnettBot would mean that the community trusts it's chunk of computer code as well as its operator, such tools cannot be given on the Yew Grove. If BurnettBot wants to be sysopped, it needs to pass an RfA to indicate that it has the community's faith. Please do not comment any more on this section. --LiquidTalk 03:50, August 28, 2010 (UTC)
