Discussion[edit]

How list of files for re-tagging will be prepared? What review process will look like? --EugeneZelenko 15:56, 4 May 2008 (UTC)

    1. The making of first list for work with Category:VI.com images (tag isn't updated) is described here. Similar lists will be made for some other countries, if appropriate PD-exempt lic.tags are existing, for example Ukraine (template:PD-UA-exempt).
    2. For work with obsolete {{PD-Russia}}, I'm planning to create lists by author (by author category) or by time. For example, I've planed to start with work Сергей Михайлович Прокудин-Горский, which can be retagged as {{PD-RusEmpire}}.
  • About review process. What do you mean? Review of images for retag/recat/relink or review after edits? Alex Spade 16:24, 4 May 2008 (UTC)
    • I think will be good idea to review images before re-tagging. --EugeneZelenko 14:52, 5 May 2008 (UTC)
      • What characteristic of images and/or their descriptions would you like to be reviewed manually? Alex Spade 07:45, 7 May 2008 (UTC)
        • I just remember cases when PD-Soviet was blindly replaces with PD-Russia on images definitely made after 1954. --EugeneZelenko 14:51, 7 May 2008 (UTC)
          • Oh, I've seen. Yes, I remeber such cases too and a great number of images which was made after 1946(1942) (smb fogot to take into account US-law). But I will working by another way, I don't want to retag all images with {{PD-Russia}} automatically, I want to retag some groups of them, if it's possible. Alex Spade 16:34, 7 May 2008 (UTC)

Please make a test run at low rate, to check everything's ok. Patrícia msg 18:31, 8 May 2008 (UTC)

Ok. I will make it. But edits will not be automatic (like real bot does), they will be semiautomatic because of AWB-restrictions for non-bot accounts. Alex Spade 07:08, 13 May 2008 (UTC)
Examples of semiauto retag and recat of my bot (under main account, because bot-account hasn't got AWB-permission) can be found in my countributions at the top of Contributions of Alex+Spade since 20080517. Alex Spade 14:18, 17 May 2008 (UTC)
Looks fine for me. --EugeneZelenko 14:42, 18 May 2008 (UTC)
