Bot flag requested: (Y/N): Y


In order to update categories on images, I'd like to obtain a bot flag for category-bot. It's to run the pywikipediabot framework. Previous request is at 1. In the meantime, the bot made 990 edits at a slow rate without any problems. -- Docu 17 February 2008 (UTC)

Please explain categorization policies which bot will follow. --EugeneZelenko 15:48, 17 February 2008 (UTC)
As done up to now, only consensual updates to categories will be done. -- User:Docu


  • comment - Do you have some specific samples you think we should look at? I see you started operating the bot again earlier this year, and I spot checked some of the contribs and they seemed OK to me... ++Lar: t/c 00:03, 20 February 2008 (UTC)
    Most, if not all seem ok to me. For moves, Category:Blumenstein BE to Category:Blumenstein is a standard in the way I use pywikipediabot. -- User:Docu
  • One more question, sorry... When reading the previous request fo bot flag, there were raised concerns on how the issue would be considered consensual. Is this recategorization of cantons discussed anywhere in particular (like COM:CFD)? Otherwise, I see no problems in the editing part. Patrícia msg 14:38, 25 February 2008 (UTC)
