Bot flag requested: (Y/N): Y

Functions: Some time we have a same images from one uploader need same work. Like this images:

sometime the uploader doesn't add a source in {{Information}} but he add {{PD-self}} or same tags.

Looks like bot makes obvious error. --EugeneZelenko 14:14, 10 July 2007 (UTC)
This is not error. see this. anyway that's old :). I'll work better than this--OsamaK 16:00, 10 July 2007 (UTC)
I don't understand why license was removed at all and replaced with {{no license}}? --EugeneZelenko 14:36, 11 July 2007 (UTC)
That's not {{GPL}}. he didn't write the softwere and it's not like it --OsamaK 18:24, 11 July 2007 (UTC)
{{GPL}} is valid license on Commons. You could politely ask user to use other licenses more suitable for media files then GPL, but not remove it. --EugeneZelenko 15:03, 12 July 2007 (UTC)
I asked him see this and this ,and see his answer.--OsamaK 19:35, 12 July 2007 (UTC)

Object bot status until we know why {{GPL}} was removed. Why was it removed? -- Bryan (talk to me) 17:34, 15 July 2007 (UTC)

And why was {{sandbox}} substed? -- Bryan (talk to me) 17:35, 15 July 2007 (UTC)
This is jest a test before request, What's problem?!--OsamaK 03:46, 18 July 2007 (UTC)
I'm gonna have to object as well. Please test this on a personal wiki (not test.wikipedia) and make sure that all the functions are working correctly. (O - RLY?) 17:59, 15 July 2007 (UTC)
OK, please add me here--OsamaK 03:46, 18 July 2007 (UTC)
I try this at en.wp it was good.--OsamaK 09:59, 19 July 2007 (UTC)
✓ Done -- Bryan (talk to me) 08:55, 21 July 2007 (UTC)
Enwp is generally easier with respect to images than commons. -- Bryan (talk to me) 08:55, 21 July 2007 (UTC)

So what is the upshot (outcome) here, OsamaK? Are you still seeking the bot flag or is being added to the AWB page sufficient? The "done" confused me, but then I went and checked and bothood has not yet been added. This request has been around long enough to merit closing out if consensus can be determined. Right now, though, my read is that there are substantial objections that need satisfying first. ++Lar: t/c 21:39, 24 July 2007 (UTC)

Now, I do test. If it's good you can give me a BOT flag :)--OsamaK 13:09, 25 July 2007 (UTC)
Please update us with where we can look at the test results. I would want to see a clearer consensus that there were no objections before I turned it on, not just positive test results, but others may not agree... ++Lar: t/c 15:02, 28 July 2007 (UTC)

No bot flag! Adding things like „own work“ because of a template like {{PD-self}} makes the average copyvio to „own work“. Every user has to express the source on his own. The bot runs on as well? Oh fine, sooner or later we will upload all these copyvios (“own work”) here, just because someone added a license like PD-self. Deleting empty files from the information template is useless as well, if you want to add information you have to add the field again (if you know the name) and the result of your replacement looks like {{DATE}} and {{AUTHOR}}. --Polarlys 17:08, 28 July 2007 (UTC)

See: --Polarlys 17:17, 28 July 2007 (UTC)

In addition, this bot has been blocked for 30 minutes because of this. (O - RLY?) 17:20, 28 July 2007 (UTC)
I forgot to mention. :-) --Polarlys 17:24, 28 July 2007 (UTC)

I blocked the bot again (1 day). It obviously runs unattended, the user didn’t respond. --Polarlys 17:52, 28 July 2007 (UTC)

I was not there ;) --OsamaK 10:32, 31 July 2007 (UTC)

  • Pictogram voting comment.svg Comment I don't like this bot doing stuff that has not been discussed, is not in any policy or guideline here, and where there is no standard. / Fred J 16:21, 29 July 2007 (UTC)

This really isn't a support or oppose sort of discussion, but regardless of how they are badged, I am seeing significant objections at this time. I'd like to see more opinions from other folk if at all possible, though. ++Lar: t/c 18:30, 30 July 2007 (UTC)

  •  Not done--OsamaK 10:32, 31 July 2007 (UTC)
    • Are you withdrawing your request? If so, or if you don't answer in a day or two, we'll archive it and mark it unsuccessful for now. If not could you elaborate? Thanks. ++Lar: t/c 16:53, 31 July 2007 (UTC)

 Not done Significant unaddressed concerns and user appears to have withdrawn request. Note also that this is the second request, see Commons:Bots/Requests for flags/OsamaKBOT for the first one. ++Lar: t/c 19:40, 3 August 2007 (UTC)
