Discussion[edit]

Test edit looks OK but I think longer test run will be good idea. --EugeneZelenko (talk) 15:14, 19 December 2008 (UTC)
I don't have a grand plan for all edits that I intend to do. Instead, this is a semi-automatic helper for some of my manual edits. For the particular example edit, see also the current discussion on Commons:Village pump#Multilingual presentations by interwiki. --LA2 (talk) 06:50, 20 December 2008 (UTC)
Is the frequency of change so high that a bot flag is needed? I think we'd like to see some better explanation of what exactly the remit/scope of this bot is than "I don't have a grand plan" before we approve (with or without flag, that's an optional thing)... Please help us understand. Thanks! ++Lar: t/c 16:51, 22 December 2008 (UTC)
I got side tracked with some other things, and will probably return to this bot request in a few weeks or months. --LA2 (talk) 04:09, 5 January 2009 (UTC)
OK, I'll archive this for now, you're welcome to open a new request in the future. Thanks, Patrícia msg 17:50, 12 January 2009 (UTC)

I'm uploading some old newspapers now, using this account which still doesn't have the bot flag. --LA2 (talk) 14:14, 13 May 2010 (UTC)
