Bot's tasks for which permission is being sought: To regularly update economic (time series) charts. For example, as a first task, a new file similar to File:Interest_rates_(1997-2010).png, but as an SVG, overwriting it each month with a new file and updating the description. For the example, I have already built a generator for the SVG, it is available here (it picks up live official data) and then redraws the chart accordingly).
Automatic or manually assisted: Automatic
Edit type (e.g. Continuous, daily, one time run): Regularly; e.g. monthly for the example.
Maximum edit rate (eg edits per minute): To start with, 1 edit per month. I could probably stagger the updates if more series were used, any which way, never multiple edits per minute.
Bot flag requested: (Y/N): Y
Programming language(s): PHP, Peachy framework.
- Done Okay, for the example SVG, I uploaded an SVG correct for July, and then had the bot update for August. You can see that it all worked fine (just a couple of tweaks to the automatic description to make, and indeed made). Jarry1250 (talk)
- Oh, and the file is File:UK interest rates, May 1997 to present .svg. Jarry1250 (talk) 15:33, 20 August 2010 (UTC)
