  • Please be more specific for those not familiar with what you've named above. What will the bot be doing? Giggy (talk) 04:16, 5 October 2008 (UTC)
The bot will be tagging images from Special:NewImages, pages from Special:NewPages (It will be tagging emtpy galleries, check the source code above) & fixing disambiguation redirects. --Kanonkas(talk) 07:52, 5 October 2008 (UTC)
  • Please be more specific about handling of empty species galleries and categories, what the definition of an empty category is. --Foroa (talk) 08:00, 5 October 2008 (UTC)
No it won't do anything with empty categories, Foroa. It will be checking Special:NewPages (only the 1st one) and if it's empty it will tag it, see it's deleted contribs. --Kanonkas(talk) 08:08, 5 October 2008 (UTC)
The same goes to emtpy species galleries unfortunately, I don't think we can change the code not to tag species galleries, but correct me if I'm wrong. --Kanonkas(talk) 08:54, 5 October 2008 (UTC)
Fixing redirects is unnecessary. See w:Wikipedia:Tools/Navigation popups/About fixing redirects LegoKontribsTalkM 21:27, 5 October 2008 (UTC)
However fixing disambig redirects is acceptable.  — Mike.lifeguard | @en.wb 17:49, 7 October 2008 (UTC)

← Is it possible to get a bureaucrat to take a look on this here & flag it, if they believe it's appropriate. Thanks, --Kanonkas(talk) 18:00, 9 October 2008 (UTC)
