What (the heck) is this bot supposed to do?
Read more about the reason why this is a monologue (instead of a dialogue) at User talk:DrTrigon/archive#Your bot, and Commons:Administrators' noticeboard/User problems/Archive 32#Help requested on User talk:DrTrigonBot.
The final goal we are working towards, is a general classification bot - currently the bot is under continuous development. At the moment it is in fact only useful with a limited range of media files (images, ...) and therefore is runned accordingly. More functions, feature extractors, categorizations, supported file formats, ... are added from time to time. The progress can be followed at w:en:User:DrTrigonBot/doc#Categorization or w:de:User:DrTrigonBot.
A lot of documentation about the bot was created already, but it's still just a small part of what could be done. E.g. the template docs, the java script, the docs on enwiki, ... (everything should be linked from User:DrTrigonBot). May be they are hard to find and/or badly promoted?! If you like/want/can help here - please step forward!
The topic covered by this bot including computer vision and else are not completely trivial and thus need some background knowledge. It is very useful to be familiar with its basic concepts in order to understand how it works and provide constructive input - therefore please confer the documentation provided in various places mentioned before. If something is left unclear or uncovered at all - please let me know in order that we can improve this. --DrTrigon (talk) 16:59, 21 January 2013 (UTC)
Hello Dr Trigon,
it would be helpful if you could add some kind of documentation about what people are supposed to do with your automatic categorization. Should the cat categorized by drtrigonbot be deleted? And what about the other meta-info? Is this supposed to stay?
Secondly categories like "Created with Adobe" are hidden so if the bot only adds this category next time the categorization bot makes its anual run these files are going to be marked as not categorized again. Also these categories should not be added manually but with a template.
