User:File Upload Bot (AntWeb)

This bot is a very slight variant on the User:File Upload Bot (Eloquence) bot. Its task is to upload about 30,000 or so images from www.antweb.org. I'm planning on doing one major upload of 30,000 images - about one every 10 seconds. Then, monthly uploads of new images that come in, which will be considerably fewer.

An example image, and its associated metadata maybe be seen here. Any tips or suggestions on ways to improve the metadata would be greatly appeciated.

The images are under the cc-by-sa-3.0 license.

Many thanks to User:Waldir for considerable assistance, and thanks to User:Raeky for the AntWeb pictures template.

It is not a sock puppet, but rather an automated or semi-automated account for making repetitive edits that would be extremely tedious to do manually.
