  • I think will be good idea to create source template and place category there. Also will be good idea to use links edit summaries. --EugeneZelenko (talk) 14:46, 16 September 2012 (UTC)
    • What do you mean by "links edit summaries"? Lymantria (talk) 14:58, 16 September 2012 (UTC)
      • I have done a tiny additional test run adding a source template rather than a category (and I had to run a correction run too). Lymantria (talk) 05:54, 17 September 2012 (UTC)
        Sorry, I missed in. New test run looks OK for me. --EugeneZelenko (talk) 14:54, 17 September 2012 (UTC)

What about

-{{PaDIL|http://padil.gov.au/pollinators/Pest/Main/138568/17365}}
+{{PaDIL|pollinators|138568|17365}}

Would this be beneficial in case the links change in future (I don't had a deep look into the site so I can't say whether /Pest/Main is superfluous)? -- Rillke(q?) 17:47, 18 September 2012 (UTC)

If you really consider this an improvement, I can of course change that. But I am afraid that this splitting up the link does indeed make it a lot less user friendly for (non bot) uploaders. That is why I intentionally did not split it at first. Kind regards, Lymantria (talk) 06:54, 19 September 2012 (UTC)
I agree. Should be also easy to change the links later in case the site changes its structure. -- Rillke(q?) 14:22, 19 September 2012 (UTC)
Thank you. I hope if necessary indeed it will be easy. Lymantria (talk) 16:02, 19 September 2012 (UTC)

If there are no objections, I think bot status should be granted. --EugeneZelenko (talk) 14:48, 21 September 2012 (UTC)
