  • Please make a test run. --EugeneZelenko (talk) 15:47, 27 February 2012 (UTC)
    • I'm waiting for AWB approval to do that, since I plan to use AWB with this bot. Would you like me to do it without AWB instead? --Auntof6 (talk) 21:38, 27 February 2012 (UTC)
    • Update: test run done. See edits with edit summary "remove parent/redundant category". I did not test the "consolidate categories" function yet because I need to find data that fits those conditions. I can do a separate test run for that in the future if desired. Thanks. --Auntof6 (talk) 04:43, 28 February 2012 (UTC)
      • Categories removal looks fine for me. Please remove useless section title from edit summary. Will be good idea to list there removed categories. --EugeneZelenko (talk) 15:35, 28 February 2012 (UTC)
        • Thanks. I will change the AWB settings to do these two things when I make these changes. --Auntof6 (talk) 22:42, 28 February 2012 (UTC)
          • ...if/when the bot is approved (I don't know what's a reasonable time to wait). :) --Auntof6 (talk) 02:37, 9 March 2012 (UTC)
    • Update #2: I have now completed a trial run of the "consolidate categories" function. (It took me a while to find something I could use for that.) The edit summaries all start with "Bot test run -- consolidate cats", and indicate the exact categories that were being processed. I await your excellencies' decision. --Auntof6 (talk) 10:23, 9 March 2012 (UTC)
      • And right after doing that, I inadvertently made one other edit under the prospective bot account that I meant to make under my regular account -- sorry about that! --Auntof6 (talk) 10:38, 9 March 2012 (UTC)
        Looks OK for me. I could suggest adding direct links to categories in edit summary, if there will be enough space in it. --EugeneZelenko (talk) 15:42, 9 March 2012 (UTC)
        Thanks. I'll keep that in mind. I look forward to a decision being made on this bot request. --Auntof6 (talk) 09:47, 10 March 2012 (UTC)

If there are no any objections, I think bot status should be granted. --EugeneZelenko (talk) 14:45, 14 March 2012 (UTC)
