[Type of article]: All (except for template)
[Bot function]: Manage interlang links
[Bot/Template Name]: User:2P_(CP)
[Pages affected]: All (except for template)
[Source Material]: index.php or api.php on each site of Encyclopaediae Pokemonis
[Reason]: I've been operating this bot on all wikis except for Bulbapedia. When this bot optimize interlang links, it looks for associated page in each language and make a list of these pages first. Then my bot starts editing articles so the resource to update interlang doesn't increase so much even if the bot do edit on one more wiki. This may sound selfish reason but I think it not efficient to run plural bots for one article to do update interlang.
After staff discussion, we do not feel that it is necessary at this time to have another bot working on language-based interwiki links beyond the existing BulbaBot account. Your bot is not approved for use on Bulbapedia. As you have already made the account for the bot, it will be permanently blocked under Bulbapedia's policy regarding [bp=Bulbapedia:Blocking_policy#Additional_accounts]additional accounts[/bp].
If you have any other questions or concerns, please feel free to contact me via PM or via email. Thank you for your understanding.
