555.bot[edit]

To prevent new floods of uploads on my main user account, I would like to get a bot flag in this account. It's only purpose is to mass upload .png public domain book scans taken from various sources (Google Book Search, National Library of Brazil, National Library of Portugal etc) in order to play within ProofreadPage extension on Wikisource.

Q/A:

I will be using the commonist to mass upload the files. Lugusto 20:28, 28 October 2008 (UTC)

Discussion[edit]

Could you please make a test run? --EugeneZelenko (talk) 14:17, 29 October 2008 (UTC)
✓ Done: I've uploaded the first 30 pages from a book of 148 pages (but MediaWiki don't render then =( ). Lugusto 02:30, 30 October 2008 (UTC)
Looks OK for me. --EugeneZelenko (talk) 14:14, 30 October 2008 (UTC)
The categories are incorrect, please fix it. Multichill (talk) 22:12, 30 October 2008 (UTC)
Nuked the .pngs, replacing by .jpgs files (I hope that MediaWiki now supports it). Please re-check.
@Multichill: the category is the name of the book. This is done like as in Category:Scanned English texts (the fully categorization is done only at the category that have the book name). Please let me known if you have any suggestions of different category schemas.

Category:Os Sambaquis de São Paulo is just fine (the first uploads contained a non-existant category). It would be nice if you included a {{BookNaviBar}}. Multichill (talk) 20:11, 3 November 2008 (UTC)

I granted a bot flag. The {{BookNaviBar}} would indeed be a nice touch, if Multichill could help 555 with that, he would certainly appreciate it. Patrícia msg 22:18, 2 December 2008 (UTC)
