I'm not sure if this is the right section but can we make the bot delete all of Mimi15's fanmade pics of the cutie marks? Seeing how they're unused and there is a lot of them out there.  Azki_icon.pngZeiluse Talkpage Nurse_Redheart%27s_cutie_mark.png 18:11, April 26, 2012 (UTC)

It's theoretically possible, but only Sweetiebot can rename or delete files (Grizeldroid can too, in theory, but not until I've got time to get deeper into Python). In either case the bot holder would have to request temporary admin powers. It may be quicker to delete them manually. --Tulipclaymore 18:18, April 26, 2012 (UTC)
I'll get to it soon. –Throwawaytv 20:47, April 26, 2012 (UTC)

I'm requesting an admin flag for SweetieBot to perform these deletions. –Throwawaytv 13:05, May 9, 2012 (UTC)
Granted. Teyandee (Talk) 13:12, May 9, 2012 (UTC)

{C}Remove all images from Category:Pound Cake and Pumpkin Cake images and add Category:Pumpkin Cake images and/or Category:Pound Cake images. Files list: User:Teyandee/Sandbox. Teyandee (Talk) 13:34, May 20, 2012 (UTC)

Removed Category:Images with unknown license and add Category:Copyrighted Media for the screencaps. To do this, replace {{None selected}} with {{Fairuse}}.

Teyandee (Talk) 18:28, May 24, 2012 (UTC)

Will have to wait for Throwawaytv to get back and let SweetieBot handle those, that's the only bot with admin flags.  Food 25px-Surprise.png  19:15, May 24, 2012 (UTC)
Also, might I ask how you fetched the list? Just curious.  Food 25px-Surprise.png  19:28, May 24, 2012 (UTC)
1) Why do we need admin`s right for that?
2) See Special:ListRedirects.
Teyandee (Talk) 16:43, May 25, 2012 (UTC)
Anything that involves deleting requires admin rights.  Food 25px-Surprise.png  16:53, May 25, 2012 (UTC)

Same for Owloysius -> Owlowiscious. Plus remove images from Category:Owloysius images and add to Category:Owlowiscious images. Teyandee (Talk) 02:38, July 1, 2012 (UTC)

Category:Philomeena images has been renamed to Category:Philomena images and images from the gallery and former category moved over. I would've mass renamed images too but BonBot lacks the privileges. JPanzerj My Talk 09:25, July 3, 2012 (UTC)

I am doing it now. Teyandee (Talk) 17:55, July 7, 2012 (UTC)

Category:Canterlot Castle images should be renamed to Category:Castle Creator images (to avoid confusion) and all images used on Castle Creator/Gallery should be added to it. ~Bobogoobo (talk new) | 06:59, July 8, 2012

There should be something like Category:Adventures in Ponyville images for things on Adventures in Ponyville/Gallery. Many are currently uncategorized. ~Bobogoobo (talk new) | 04:59, July 10, 2012 Done. Teyandee (Talk) 16:34, July 10, 2012 (UTC)

Rename Category:Philomeena images to Category:Philomena images —Preceding unsigned comment added by Bobogoobo (talkcontribs) 3 July 2012

There's Philomena, Owlowiscious, and Appleoosa. They will receive a site-wide rename once things settle down. –Throwawaytv 08:13, July 3, 2012 (UTC)
Appleloosa gets to keep its second L. –Throwawaytv 07:36, July 4, 2012 (UTC)


While we are waiting for the bots, I want to suggest a semi-automatic tool: AutoWikiBrowser. One should manually fill the list of files/articles, select a task (add/remove category), set the auto-save option if needed and press Start. It is not a bot - it is used to assist user. A bot account is needed to hide the edits form Special:RecentChanges. Teyandee (Talk) 18:04, March 30, 2012 (UTC)

Yes, that's what Grizeldroid uses (with a delay in saving so I can see if it does anything stupid, which is why going through the list is taking so long). I wouldn't really not call it a bot if in auto-save mode... --Tulipclaymore 18:28, March 30, 2012 (UTC)

I was asked to rename files by Can we just delete them? They are pretty misnamed. It would be too much work to renames them manually and I do not want to keep them because they have not descriptive names. Teyandee (Talk) 02:42, April 13, 2012 (UTC)

Unused files should be deleted, but in-use files should not. Most of those files are medium-quality, they should be superseded eventually. –Throwawaytv 12:20, April 14, 2012 (UTC)
I think the images currently loose in Category:Images should be moved to their own category, such as Category:Icons, for better sorting. ~Bobogoobo (talk new) | 05:15, July 8, 2012
Welp, I was going to do this since no one has, and I created the category, but forgot the images are all used in templates with stupid cascading protection on them, which is pointless and not very well integrated into the software. So someone with admin rights will need to do it. ~Bobogoobo (talk) Lyra_speaks_S2E25.png 20:55, August 10, 2012 (UTC)
I believe SweetieBot still has admin rights; if not, one of the other bot accounts could temporarily get admin rights in order to that. -- This is Jonny Manz, signing off! 21:30, August 10, 2012 (UTC)
Images used on Ponyville/Gallery and similar pages, if there are others, should be added to Category:Location images. ~Bobogoobo (talk new) | 07:55, July 9, 2012
We should define what counts as a location image as currently many images can be added to this category as showing Ponyville. Teyandee (Talk) 16:34, July 10, 2012 (UTC)
I think it's when there are no characters visible or very few that are not the focus of the shot. ~Bobogoobo (talk new) | 04:30, July 11, 2012
