Discussion[edit]

I think will be good idea to use this bot without flag with lower rate. Images may be noticed in recent changes for post-processing by humans.
Is it possible to use English categories only?

Post-processing is easiest when the upload of done because than you can see which categories you can move. So slowing the upload down will only result in more waiting for the people working on the categorization process. You can't keep up with the bot anyway or the upload would have to take weeks.
It's not possible to only use English categories as the source database is entirely in dutch (except for some image descriptions). Multichill (talk) 15:59, 4 December 2009 (UTC)

I don't see any issues. ✓ Approved with flag. Kanonkas // talk // e-mail // 14:31, 16 December 2009 (UTC)
