Hello. To facilitate steward granting of bot access, I suggest implementing the standard bot policy on this wiki. In particular, this policy allows stewards to automatically flag known interlanguage linking bots (if this page says that is acceptable), which form the vast majority of such requests. The policy also enables global bots on this wiki (if this page says that is acceptable), which are trusted bots that will be given bot access on every wiki that allows global bots.
This policy makes bot access requesting much easier for local users, operators, and stewards. To implement it we only need to create a redirect to this page from Project:Bot policy, and add a line at the top noting that it is used here. Please read the text at m:Bot policy before commenting. If you object, please say so; I hope to implement in two weeks if there is no objection, since it is particularly written to streamline bot requests on wikis with little or no community interested in bot access requests. амдф 00:27, 30 октябрьын 2010 (MSD)

The method of approvalТӧрлаташ
In many editions of Wikipedia there is a standard policy for bots, which is:
Such a policy applies, for example, in Erzya, Moksha, Udmurt and Komi Wikipedia editions. In a Meadow Mari Wikipedia the policy is a little different, but similar in general.
I suggest to adopt this policy.
