  • Looks OK for me, but I think will be good idea to include bot into user name. --EugeneZelenko (talk) 14:50, 12 October 2013 (UTC)
  • With all due respect, I really fail to see how it makes a difference. Anyone curious about the edits this account is making can easily navigate to it's userpage for that information. -FASTILY 20:02, 12 October 2013 (UTC)
  • Pictogram voting comment.svg  Comment This bot has also been archiving deletion requests from "Commons:Deletion requests/date" to "Commons:Deletion requests/Archive/date", and also in cases where User:DRBot doesn't archive deletion discussions. This feature doesn't seem to be part of What exactly are the plans for the archiving bot? --Stefan4 (talk) 00:06, 15 October 2013 (UTC)
  • Correct. As you'll note from the bot's userpage, I use this account to perform a variety of non-controversial maintenance tasks using manual, semi-automated scripts (authored either by myself and/or others). In other words, these edits are generated by tools, checked by me, and then saved by me, so for all purposes and intents, consider these edits performed via my main account, User:Fastily. -FASTILY 01:44, 16 October 2013 (UTC)
  • Are the other edits supposed to be shown on watchlists? --99of9 (talk) 09:12, 16 October 2013 (UTC)
  • I don't have a preference. -FASTILY 20:36, 16 October 2013 (UTC)
  • Some things like archiving closed DRs could be hidden. But things like applying {{npd}} (example) should not be hidden. Could they be run from your main account, or another alternate? --99of9 (talk) 00:50, 22 October 2013 (UTC)
  • Sure -FASTILY 06:41, 22 October 2013 (UTC)

closing as Withdrawn --99of9 (talk) 11:17, 24 October 2013 (UTC)
