  • Would you do a test upload? --  Docu  at 17:35, 19 June 2011 (UTC)
Now done. Nillerdk (talk) 19:27, 21 June 2011 (UTC)
The uploads look fine to me. --Jarekt (talk) 20:14, 24 June 2011 (UTC)
Looks fine to me as well. Personally, I'd do this change, but that's just a minor tweak. --  Docu  at 03:02, 25 June 2011 (UTC)
I've adapted the alternative way to present the date (thanks). I also tend to agree with you regarding the categorization: Categories like Category:Arne and Bent Larsen - Sophrolaeliocattleya are actually just the intersection of Category:Orchid photos by Arne and Bent Larsen and Category:Sophrolaeliocattleya and are therefore theoretically superflourous. Our MediaWiki software does not support intersections directly unfortunately. However, we needed an easy way to review the photos after bot upload and User:Orchi asked me to create like Category:Arne and Bent Larsen - Sophrolaeliocattleya becaus he feels comfortable with that during to review process. It is important to me that User:Orchi feels comfortable because I couldn't do the review myself - I'm relying on his knowledge of orchids. Nillerdk (talk) 19:02, 26 June 2011 (UTC)
Should make it easier indeed. Many users keep such categories. Maybe we could have both, but keep the user categories as "hidden categories" and just Category:Photographs by Arne and Bent Larsen visible. --  Docu  at 06:35, 27 June 2011 (UTC)

All photos have been uploaded by the bot. Sorry that I didn't wait for formal permission. User:Orchi has taken care of the categorisation. The request can be closed. Nillerdk (talk) 13:49, 18 November 2011 (UTC)

Closing as: Stale. The task is complete. Sorry the approval process was so drawn out. --99of9 (talk) 01:42, 21 May 2012 (UTC)
