Operator: El Caro (talk)

Bot's tasks for which permission is being sought: Upload SVG locator maps of all French communes (approx. 36000 files). I am agreed to do so with French Wikipedia's project "Communes de France": w:fr:Discussion_Projet:Communes_de_France#Situation_des_communes_dans_leur_d.C3.A9partement. Note that somme categories will have to be corrected by hand: in case of homonymy.

Automatic or manually assisted: Automatic, but I'll upload only a few files each time

Edit type (e.g. Continuous, daily, one time run): From time to time, my operator is watching me.

Maximum edit rate (eg edits per minute): a lot

Bot flag requested: (Y/N): Y

Programming language(s): php with botclasses.php

I have blocked the bot because it has no authorization to run yet. Test upload volume are ~50 uploads. This limit was definately excelled. --High Contrast (talk) 11:07, 9 June 2012 (UTC)

  • Symbol support vote.svg Support for the bot flag, trusted user. Kyro (talk) 11:31, 9 June 2012 (UTC)
  • Looks OK for me, but I think will be good idea to add English (and may be some other languages) description. --EugeneZelenko (talk) 14:46, 9 June 2012 (UTC)
    Yes it is. Feel free to add or correct descriptions in any language at User:ElCarbot/description. I'll add the plural or gender marker in the bot by hand, one departement at a time. For example, in French: "l'Ain", "la Charente"... --El Caro (talk) 15:30, 9 June 2012 (UTC)
  • Symbol support vote.svg Support It seems that the bot brings good results. Image descriptions (English description would be nice it is no must in my opinion) are ok, categories are ok. --High Contrast (talk) 15:43, 9 June 2012 (UTC)
  • Symbol support vote.svg Support I didn't see any problem with this bot during the first uploads. So it should get the authorization to run. Croquant (talk) 17:47, 9 June 2012 (UTC)
  • File:01301 in dept 01.svg seems to be based on File:Blank Map of Ain Department, France, with Communes.svg. The later mentions a "Licence Ouverte" work. Does this need to be mentioned in File:01301 in dept 01.svg as well? --  Docu  at 11:46, 10 June 2012 (UTC)
    "Licence ouverte" (or "open license") is like CC-BY. Thus, I think it would be better (but not needed) add the link to [1] in the description, as Poulpy did in File:Blank Map of Ain Department, France, with Communes.svg.
    So the bot should, imo, add 2 pieces of data : the link and the description in English. I've added this to File:01301 in dept 01.svg so we can see an example. --El Caro (talk) 09:54, 12 June 2012 (UTC)

If there are no objections, I think bot status should be granted. --EugeneZelenko (talk) 14:42, 14 June 2012 (UTC)
