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 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)
