    For current test task - is first step for recategorization of SPB postcards. All these cards are to St. Petersburg, but not all - to the Russian Empire or SPB Governorate. Firstly, they must be removed in a "custom" category, then rearrange so as to extract "imperial" part. --Kaganer (talk) 17:03, 6 December 2011 (UTC)
    NB: I am actively using this gadget for a long time (under my main account), and I do not remember any conflict or dispute with my participation (about this my work). I need a bot to safer and faster to work with large sets, as well as to separate my "routine" contributon. --Kaganer (talk) 17:13, 6 December 2011 (UTC)
    Test run looks OK for me. --EugeneZelenko (talk) 15:32, 7 December 2011 (UTC)
