Commons:Bots/Requests/Highway Route Marker Bot
Bot's tasks for which permission is being sought: This bot can edit text in SVG images, to output a sequence of similar images. It then converts the fonts used in the SVG to a path, thereby removing any necessary font support issues. Finally the bot uploads the image to Commons along with a custom description. This bot is very useful for creating highway route markers, which would otherwise be a tedious task.
- Seek permission to generate road sign markers and other sequential SVG images.
