I'm gonna use this bot as a help to categorize images from Deutsche Fotothek as Koerperschaft. I would also help out in the multiple category move requests on Commons. Images in Category:Images by Imre Solt also need a Creator Template added. All work would be done with AWB which I have extensive knowledge in. I would do advanced find and replace work when needed and help as much as I can. Thank you very much. --Diaa abdelmoneim (talk) 20:32, 9 April 2009 (UTC)

Could you do a testrun please? Huib talk 20:37, 9 April 2009 (UTC)
I did over 100 images at Category:VEB Nähmaschinenteilewerk Dresden and Category:VEB Betonleichtbaukombinat Dresden.The diff can be found here [1]. Example: The AWB is made so that it looks for "VEB Nähmaschinenteilewerk Dresden" and Skips images that don't include them. Than it looks for "Uncategorized-Fotothek|year=2009|month=April|day=1". If it finds it, it replaces it with Category:VEB Nähmaschinenteilewerk Dresden. If not, it appends Category:VEB Nähmaschinenteilewerk Dresden to the end of the page. The Category would be changed according to Koerperschaft.--Diaa abdelmoneim (talk) 20:50, 9 April 2009 (UTC)

Looks OK for me. --EugeneZelenko (talk) 14:39, 10 April 2009 (UTC)
Me too. Unless someone objects shortly (it's been a week since the original request) let's flag and archive this one. Thanks for helping out. ++Lar: t/c 02:06, 17 April 2009 (UTC)
