The following pages were created in the test run:

the remaining category pages already existed (manually created) and were skipped. --Dschwen (talk) 00:23, 16 November 2012 (UTC)


Those look good. --99of9 (talk) 03:59, 16 November 2012 (UTC)
Looks fine for me. --EugeneZelenko (talk) 14:51, 16 November 2012 (UTC)

Ok, I assume this is fairly uncontroversial in any case, since it is such a low-volume task. I added it to the list of tasks on the bot user page and will archive this if no other opinions come in. --Dschwen (talk) 15:18, 17 November 2012 (UTC)
