Operator: User:Dcoetzee Dcoetzee (talk)

Bot's tasks for which permission is being sought: The primary tasks I intend to perform with this bot are large batch uploads, standardization and cleanup of image descriptions (for example to use the correct image source template or import metadata from the original source), license validation, batch image editing, categorization, and automatic tagging of images needing cleanup or review. Until now I've been performing these under my primary user account.

Automatic or Manually Assisted: Fully automatic and unsupervised, with intermittent review.

Edit type (e.g. Continuous, daily, one time run): Continuous, as long as it has work to do.

Maximum edit rate (eg edits per minute): Depends on the task - about 1-5 per minute for uploads, up to 20 per minute for tagging or image description cleanup.

Bot flag requested: (Y/N): Yes

Programming Language(s): Primarily C# using DotNetWikiBot, maybe also Python.
