  • Could you please use links to categories in edit summaries? I think will be good idea to create template for all images created by library and add Category:Media contributed by Koninklijke Bibliotheek there. Please also perform test runs for other tasks. --EugeneZelenko (talk) 15:50, 4 February 2014 (UTC)
    • Yes, i realised later on that it would make more sense to add the Template:Koninklijke Bibliotheek instead of the category directly. I'll fix that. I'll also add an edit summary. Thanks. Huskyoog.jpg Husky (talk to me) 09:56, 6 February 2014 (UTC)
  • G'day Hay, nice to bump into you again. Can you clarify the copyright situation of files like File:Sierpapier_(8074158775).jpg for me? From the description it looks like the artwork was done in 1991? If so, does the library really have the authority to license it? --99of9 (talk) 03:17, 5 February 2014 (UTC)
    • Hey 99of9. Good question, i'll figure that out. Huskyoog.jpg Husky (talk to me) 09:56, 6 February 2014 (UTC)
      • Sigh.. apparently CC-BY-SA was set for all photos in the KB Flickr stream, even for photographs that were still under copyright. I will go through the category and check which photos are PD and which are not. Huskyoog.jpg Husky (talk to me) 12:43, 6 February 2014 (UTC)
        • Thanks. I'm glad I asked! --99of9 (talk) 13:41, 6 February 2014 (UTC)
  • @User:Husky I've just had a look at some of the recent contribs. I think your handling of the License header could be improved: why remove the header? here the header was left, but the license moved above it. --99of9 (talk) 09:28, 23 March 2014 (UTC)
    • @99of9 I did a limited run with this bot where i've left the Licensing header. Thanks for the comment. Any chance i could get the bot flag? :) Huskyoog.jpg Husky (talk to me) 14:33, 24 March 2014 (UTC)
      • Yes, those last four edits look fine. We usually wait until everything is working before flagging. So the next task is to show an example of fixing the previous license header problems. --99of9 (talk) 21:22, 24 March 2014 (UTC)
        • @99of9: okay, check the last ten edits. I'm now re-adding the License header. Huskyoog.jpg Husky (talk to me) 10:01, 25 March 2014 (UTC)
          • Great, those are all fine. --99of9 (talk) 04:22, 26 March 2014 (UTC)

Unless there are any further comments, I suggest that we approve and flag this bot. --99of9 (talk) 04:22, 26 March 2014 (UTC)

@99of9 Thanks, awesome! Huskyoog.jpg Husky (talk to me) 10:40, 31 March 2014 (UTC)
Approved and flagged. --99of9 (talk) 23:22, 31 March 2014 (UTC)
