So why can't they grant the ability if an admin sends a Special:Contact to lets the burs do that? --Kangaroopowah   Talk  02:48,9/19/2011 
Again, allowing bureaucrats to assign a bot flag can lead to abuse and other bad things. It is best managed by staff and requires community consensus so that everyone agrees that there should be a user entrusted the power to make edits that are not seen normally by everyone. If staff manage it, they can make sure there is a community agreement.--GodPray  02:54,9/19/2011
