The bot will help with categorising the images Category:Possible Rijksmonumenten. In this batch of 500.000 images over 300.000 images will have to be identified, asking the question whether there is a Rijksmonument on the image. Most work will be done by hand, but I've come around quite some monuments with over 50 images. These I would like to categorise using I've done some botediting using pywikipedia in the past, but consider me a new user of it. Batches of images will be of such a size (50-100) that if something goes wrong I can fix it manually easily. Bot's tasks for which permission is being sought:

  • categorizing images
  • other small maintenance around the RCE-batch

Automatic or manually assisted: small automatic batches with high manual supervision.

Edit type (e.g. Continuous, daily, one time run): Small batches when I'm sorting out images, irregular. Maximum edit rate (eg edits per minute): 10

Bot flag requested: (Y/N): Doesn't matter to me, what the community likes best based on the tasks described above.

Programming language(s): pywikipedia

  • Sounds like a fine plan. Please go ahead with a test batch. --99of9 (talk) 11:01, 27 December 2012 (UTC)
Ok did some testedits, but I'm asked to fill in a captcha with each edit, so I wont do much more edits with this account for now (simply costs to much time). Mvg, Basvb (talk) 12:05, 27 December 2012 (UTC)
Ok got the captcha's away, will complete the test run now. Basvb (talk) 12:48, 27 December 2012 (UTC)
Please make edit summaries more readable. --EugeneZelenko (talk) 15:42, 27 December 2012 (UTC)
Hmm, I'm not so much of a detailed summary person but have tried to make it more human readable, that's at cost of the exact information about what happends. I don't know enough about the commands to write a very nice summary. Basvb (talk) 16:29, 27 December 2012 (UTC)
Looks much better for me now :-) --EugeneZelenko (talk) 15:44, 28 December 2012 (UTC)
