The user is already trusted to use a bot, and the task is clearly simple and uncontroversial. I think we should approve this quickly. --99of9 (talk) 01:11, 31 July 2012 (UTC)

  • I don't think this should be made automatically. I give you an example: the list has complexes with more monuments, and many of them don't have the images properly categorized (like Category:Cetatea Aiudului: the complex has code 00172) and there are multiple codes for each monument (00172.01, 00172.02, 00172.03, 00172.04), so the robot can't decide which is the monument 1, which is the monument 2, etc. This action should be run automatically only after the proper categorization of the monuments.  Daniel  Message  16:16, 1 August 2012 (UTC)
The robot does not base its decision on categories here and does not decide much of anything, it simply reads the codes in the list at ro.wp. If images without a code got into that list, that means they were either inserted manually or used to illustrate the article about the monument (again, manually picked up). Having them partially tagged (with the ensemble ID instead of the specific monument id) is better than nothing, allowing for easier search and categorization afterwards.--Strainu (talk) 08:47, 3 August 2012 (UTC)
In that list there are entries where the image is linked to a category. The robot will only add the ID to that one image in the list, or it will add it to the whole category?  Daniel  Message  09:37, 3 August 2012 (UTC)
Only to images.--Strainu (talk) 10:07, 3 August 2012 (UTC)
Ok, I now Symbol support vote.svg Support.  Daniel  Message  08:29, 6 August 2012 (UTC)

If there are no further objections, I think task should be approved. --EugeneZelenko (talk) 14:32, 8 August 2012 (UTC)
