  • Looks OK for me. I think will be good idea to localize at same time Summary and Licensing sections if required. --EugeneZelenko (talk) 15:53, 15 January 2012 (UTC)
    • I agree. Otherwise it's just editing pages without any actual benefit. --  Docu  at 16:11, 15 January 2012 (UTC)
  • Minor problem at File:'50s stude lark.JPG, it removed "|other_versions=" --  Docu  at 16:14, 15 January 2012 (UTC)
    • and "|Permission=" at File:玉泉站陸橋.jpg. In general, unless something is added to information templates, I'd avoid adjusting white-space. --  Docu  at 16:17, 15 January 2012 (UTC)
    • At File:Żywność - 010.JPG and several others, "1=" disappeared. --  Docu  at 16:16, 15 January 2012 (UTC)
      To all three issues above, it's intended. Since I was running the test edits manually, I thought I'd plug in some edits I usually perform by hand when editing image description pages. You can notice that when the 1= is needed, I didn't remove it. As for the whitespace, I find it easier to read for manual edits, and it's cumbersome to adjust by hand (as I usually do). Of course, if that's unwelcome, I won't have the bot perform those changes. — Preceding unsigned comment added by Waldir (talk • contribs)
      Ok. I thought it was part of the test run of the bot we could review. --  Docu  at 04:43, 21 January 2012 (UTC)
  • Where did the date (2008-06-30) at File:玉泉站陸橋.jpg come from? --  Docu  at 16:21, 15 January 2012 (UTC)
    • Seems to be the translation of the text it replaces. --  Docu  at 21:00, 15 January 2012 (UTC)
  • {{ImageUpload}} seems to be all gone. Do you still need the bot flag for some other tasks? --Jarekt (talk) 05:19, 16 January 2012 (UTC)
    Yes, it'd be nice. I have several tasks in mind it could perform, such as localization of the section headers (mentioned above by EugeneZelenko and Docu), and while doing that, also tweak the wikicode with maintenance edits such as e.g. adding whitespace, moving categories and interwikis to the bottom, etc. --Waldir talk 15:50, 16 January 2012 (UTC)
    If you find another task to do, please make a test run on that. If it's just do to edits through AWB (as above), this can be done w/o a bot flag. --  Docu  at 04:43, 21 January 2012 (UTC)
    You might be interested in this one Commons:Deletion requests/Template:Ns has subpages. --  Docu  at 05:28, 21 January 2012 (UTC)
    Oh, you're right. When I login to my regular account in AWB, the Bots tab isn't displayed, so I assumed the bot flag was needed to set AWB in auto-save mode. Regarding your suggestion, thanks, I updated above and will do a test run. --Waldir talk 01:46, 23 January 2012 (UTC)
    Update: Did the test run, please verify. --Waldir talk 02:12, 28 January 2012 (UTC)
    Looks OK for me. --EugeneZelenko (talk) 15:45, 30 January 2012 (UTC)
    Ok for me too. If you find more changes to include, all the better. There are few at Commons:Template i18n/bot replacements --  Docu  at 21:45, 30 January 2012 (UTC)

If there are no objections, I think bot status should be granted. --EugeneZelenko (talk) 15:37, 2 February 2012 (UTC)
