I will run Pngbot as needed to automate optimizing PNG images using optipng (excluding those tagged with SupersededSVG or similar). The bot will be pointed to a category page or other list of links to images and update them as needed. Mikm 05:01, 14 January 2007 (UTC)

  • Please set up a userpage and do a short test run, giving links to some before and afters so we can better evaluate. Sounds promising, though. ++Lar: t/c 19:03, 14 January 2007 (UTC)
    • Will do. I just have to wait until the new-accounts-can't-overwrite expires. Mikm 17:53, 15 January 2007 (UTC)
  • If bot could run in semiautomatic mode, will be great to have ability to add {{Convert to SVG|Category name}} to simple images. --EugeneZelenko 15:47, 19 January 2007 (UTC)
    • The idea crossed my mind, but it would still require human oversight to check each images and the effort/time-saved factor would be negligible (especially since pngbot is meant to be pointed to a category or other page while I leave/do something more interesting) Mikm 04:36, 20 January 2007 (UTC)
