I have a bunch of files here in process of manual categorisation; however, bot comes along daily and tags them with {{Uncategorized}}- strictly correct, but somewhat redundant. {{bots|deny=CategorizationBot}} doesn't seem to prevent this. Is there a way of opting out of this service? Cheers. Rodhullandemu (talk) 19:16, 16 June 2014 (UTC)

If the category is not hidden, the bot won't touch it. Multichill (talk) 20:20, 16 June 2014 (UTC)
OK, thanks, there's no particular reason for it to be hidden. Cheers. Rodhullandemu (talk) 20:27, 16 June 2014 (UTC)

Britannica images[edit]

Images from the 1911 Encyclopaedia Britannica are categorized automatically using the {{PD-Britannica}} template. Marking these images as "uncategorized" is an error, since they actually do have a category. --EncycloPetey (talk) 18:28, 26 June 2014 (UTC)

No it's not. The image only contain source and license categories (both hidden) and no topic categories. Multichill (talk) 18:24, 27 June 2014 (UTC)

Where is the "ignore" list?[edit]

Where is the "ignore list" for templates that is mentioned in the FAQ? Is {{Wikipedia-screenshot}} on it? It shouldn't be. WhatamIdoing (talk) 05:21, 11 July 2014 (UTC)
