Discussion[edit]

That category is currently empty. Perhaps someone else or some other bot is already doing this? Please can you perform a test run per the intructions. --99of9 (talk) 01:18, 31 July 2012 (UTC)

I actually cleaned it out a few hours ago, I'm thinking daily is a bit much, perhaps weekly would be better. It would basically do what I did recently, I'd just like to have a separate account with the bot flag so I don't clog up recent changes. Frood (talk) 01:45, 31 July 2012 (UTC)
One week later and there is only one file in there. Maybe now that you've cleared the backlog, the recurring rate is low? I don't think 1/week will clog the recent changes :). --99of9 (talk) 23:43, 6 August 2012 (UTC)
Right, I guess that must not have been cleaned recently. I suppose it's a good idea to withdraw this request. Frood (talk) 14:18, 8 August 2012 (UTC)

Closed as withdrawn. --99of9 (talk) 00:46, 9 August 2012 (UTC)
