  • But why do you need second bot account? --EugeneZelenko (talk) 14:42, 13 May 2013 (UTC)
Currently Slick-o-bot is often busy because I work on Commons:Flickr_batch_uploading. So a second one will be fine to run two jobs at the same time. --Slick (talk) 15:30, 13 May 2013 (UTC)
Really? My bot doesn't know what "busy" means... Face-smile.svg --Ricordisamoa 16:59, 13 May 2013 (UTC)
Currently I work on Commons:Flickr_batch_uploading/thaigov, I guess up to 10.000 images left. So this will take some time and the bot is blocked for other tasks. And I am not sure about running two upload tasks with the same account, I guess this will make trouble, so I need a second. --Slick (talk) 17:38, 13 May 2013 (UTC)
I don't think it will cause trouble, as long as they're not interfering with one another's files on your local machine. I've tried two different batches from different directories with pywikipedia bot before. --99of9 (talk) 12:51, 14 May 2013 (UTC)
I can try, but I tested if I login on Commons during the bot ist running and logout (with the same account as the bot) the bot stopped and request the password again. So I guess the api/login-token can only get onetime. (But I am not sure) I dont understand whats the problem to allow a second account? --Slick (talk) 13:03, 14 May 2013 (UTC)
I doing a test now if it work to run more than one job with the same account. Stay tuned. --Slick (talk) 16:57, 14 May 2013 (UTC)
Ok, it works to run two jobs with the same account at the same time. So my request can cancel and close. Thank you. --Slick (talk) 20:15, 14 May 2013 (UTC)
