Bot active?

Hi, is the O-bot still active in move, rename, add, or remove categories; text replacements like mentioned on COM:BOTS? I would like to know whether it would generally be feasible to do text replacements like outlined on Commons talk:WikiProject Templates#Bot. --Slomox (talk) 02:56, 10 January 2009 (UTC)

The bot is still active; the task(s) just have to be fed to the bot manually. --O (висчвын) 22:38, 11 January 2009 (GMT)
So if I have a bot task, I can request it on your talk page? --Slomox (talk) 02:18, 12 January 2009 (UTC)
Yes. --O (висчвын) 22:53, 14 January 2009 (GMT)
Under Template:Own I created a template, that is able to show the string "own work" as used in the source parameter of Template:Information in the language specified in the user's preferences (at least if that is any of the 25 languages supported at the moment). Now I'd like to replace all instances of "own work" and synonyms by "{{own}}". A list of synonyms is available at Commons talk:WikiProject Templates#Collecting (needs confirmations and is not yet ready). There are many variations to be covered that need to be handled by regular expressions. Do you prefer to construct fitting regexes yourself, should I do it, or what is your preferred way of handling this? What kind of input does the bot need? --Slomox (talk) 01:22, 18 January 2009 (UTC)
