Could you please describe review process for images before moving? --EugeneZelenko (talk) 15:17, 19 June 2009 (UTC)
I use to search for the last 100 uploaded images at I review all of them and images with suitable licence, author information and source, I upload here. Matasg 15:34, 19 June 2009 (UTC)
Looks ok, i guess you've read Commons:Moving to Commons already. Nice to see more people running transfer bots. According to my stats, lt wikipedia has about 12.000 images so that should keep you busy for a while. Maybe you should first clean out Category:Files moved from lt.wikipedia to Commons requiring review before doing massive moves. Multichill (talk) 20:47, 19 June 2009 (UTC)
Looks like file description missed in many cases. I think will be good idea to ask original uploaders to add at least Lithuanian description and also ask for translations (may be other users of Lithuanian Wikipedia) on other languages (English, Russian, etc) before moving images to Commons.
Also many files uploaded without categories, so I think will be good idea to run bot without flag, as result other Commoners will see files in recent changes/new images.

I am not comfortable approving this bot (flagged or not, but especially if it were flagged) until these issues are addressed. ++Lar: t/c 23:11, 30 June 2009 (UTC)

Note: the "bot flag" line is a question to you to ask if you need a flag here. We sometimes approve bots to run, but run unflagged, because we want them to be able to do their tasks, but we also want folk to see their work in the recent changes log.... so did you want a flag here or no? We can go either way. ++Lar: t/c 23:12, 30 June 2009 (UTC)

Actually, I need only a permission to run the bot. Bot works, I think, very rarely and will not cause any problems in the recent changes page. Matasg 09:28, 5 July 2009 (UTC)
I think will be good idea to fix issues with description before running bot. --EugeneZelenko (talk) 14:56, 6 July 2009 (UTC)
I agree. I would not favor approving this bot till all concerns have been addressed. ++Lar: t/c 18:20, 7 July 2009 (UTC)
This has sat for several weeks, I think we archive this as undone but first I'll try pinging Matasg again, Matasg did come address concerns the first time... ++Lar: t/c 21:36, 25 July 2009 (UTC)
OK, please archive the request. Matasg 16:54, 27 July 2009 (UTC)
