No objections. -- Bryan (talk to me) 22:50, 30 November 2007 (UTC)
Has a test run been done on wikicommons? Rlevse 15:30, 1 December 2007 (UTC)
Yes. See the cotributions of my bot. Multichill 21:23, 3 December 2007 (UTC)
Could you please explain more about process? Are images reviewed by trusted users? How categories were added? Will be good idea to request descriptions in cases like Image:Pallieter Lier standbeeld.jpg (location of statue for COM:FOP). --EugeneZelenko 16:18, 1 December 2007 (UTC)
At the dutch wikipedia images can be tagged with the template "move to commons". The pictures are placed in a category. My bot runs on this category. With every picture i either decide to transfer it, to add more information and to transfer it or to skip it. The bot transfers the image to commons, uses commonshelper to add categories and adds the template BotMoveToCommons. After that the bot adds a nowcommons template so that me or another sysop can delete the image. Multichill 21:23, 3 December 2007 (UTC)
Are there any manual review process as additional protection from copyvios transfer to Commons? Is it possible to specify categories manually before transfer (CommonsHelper can add too much of them)? --EugeneZelenko 15:35, 4 December 2007 (UTC)
Yes i review pictures manually before i transfer them. No it's not possible for me to add commons categories before transfer so categories have to be checked after the transfer is made. By the way, why do you mark your questions as minor? Multichill 16:45, 4 December 2007 (UTC)
No objections because of human review. I extimely rarely do major changes :-) --EugeneZelenko 16:06, 5 December 2007 (UTC)
