I was checking your contributions and a lot of info is missing:
  • No original file history
  • No licence template
  • No categories
  • No direct link to source location
  • ....
Please stop running. Most if not all your uploads qualify for deletion at the moment. Which program are you using? Looks like (an old version of?) imagetransfer. Best action would probably be to delete all your uploads here and try again using Multichill (talk) 20:11, 11 September 2008 (UTC)
Dear Ladsgroup, I reinforce Multichill's request to not run the bot until these issues are properly addressed. We can delete your uploads so they can be redone properly as soon as you are ready to do so. Thank you, Patrícia msg 20:56, 11 September 2008 (UTC)
I just transfered Image:800px-IDF.jpg from fa wikipedia, so it's possible to transfer stuff here without losing all this information. If you want to transfer images here i recommend you first prepare the images at fa wikipia:
  • Check the image is alright (source, author, licence)
  • Make sure the image has an information template
  • Change the templates into their English names and use the self template a lot
This will give you better results here at commons. Multichill (talk) 21:49, 11 September 2008 (UTC)

I change code that is better and a test run to you see Can i??Ladsgroup (talk) 04:55, 12 September 2008 (UTC) Can you wait to tomorrow? I can run bot tomorrowLadsgroup (talk) 05:34, 12 September 2008 (UTC)

No, dont run your bot. First the stuff your bot uploaded has to be cleaned up. I spoke to mardetanha and the best way to proceed is probably to undelete all of the images at fa wikipedia, delete them here, and start over again with a working bot. Multichill (talk) 11:09, 12 September 2008 (UTC)
this problem beacuse the Template:اطلاعات has been deleted if template undelete pictures have license template and original upload date and...Ladsgroup (talk) 08:48, 13 September 2008 (UTC)
Amirobot was (maybe is) running a very outdated version of pywikipedia, this was part of the problem. Ladsgroup could you explain how you are going to deal with the problems i mentioned? Which version of pywikipedia does your bot run now? Multichill (talk) 13:27, 20 September 2008 (UTC)

I'm sorry, but this request has been open for quite a long time with no positive progression. So I close this as unsuccessful for now. Dear Ladsgroup, you are welcome to open a second request when you have addressed concerns raised here. Patrícia msg 13:11, 7 October 2008 (UTC)
