  • I think will be good idea to split process into three parts:
    1. creating list of wanted categories with bot;
    2. human review of that list;
    3. creating approved categories with bot.
  • Such separation will help to handle situations like misspellings, synonyms, mix of languages, etc.

    Yes, but the categories my bot create is categorized in categories like to be classfied or unidentified. The people who does the identifying can mark it as speedy if it's misspellings. In addition, there is a list at Special:WantedCategories. --Zhuyifei1999 (talk) 10:45, 8 July 2013 (UTC)
    I think it's not reasonable to create mess and then clean it :-) --EugeneZelenko (talk) 14:50, 15 July 2013 (UTC)
    Sorry for being away recently. Foroa told be to do this, and I do support it because people might not notice them in Special:WantedCategories. (Searching in 5000 results is really tiring) --Zhuyifei1999 (talk) 09:11, 16 July 2013 (UTC)
  • I Symbol support vote.svg  Support this as it is. As long as the bot operator is careful, I think these will be accurate new categories from the WantedCategories list. --99of9 (talk) 00:36, 13 November 2013 (UTC)

I propose that we close this as approved. Unfortunately Foroa has not been active, and the WantedCategories list is now getting much longer. --99of9 (talk) 09:40, 13 January 2014 (UTC)

Approved --99of9 (talk) 01:15, 22 January 2014 (UTC)
