The bot permission concerns clean up items in the categories Category:Images from Été des Villes 2015 and Category:Uploaded via Campaign:ÉtédesVilles to have the same template {{L'été des villes}}, which includes these two categories. I should like such a bot doing this work, at which I now participate manually. If possible the bot permission should include to run the pages for renaming purposes in the near future after the campaign has ended, as template {{L'été des villes}} then has to be replaced by {{L'éte des villes 2015}}.--Havang(nl) (talk) 09:16, 4 September 2015 (UTC)
  Comment I blocked the bot for running too fast without being approved here. Crats: Feel free to unblock the bot if necessary without contacting me. — regards, Revi 16:57, 10 September 2015 (UTC)
It's correct, I wait bot status that does not come. But yes it is too fast, I modified the code without paying attention, see history before 14:30 it's correct. Gzen92 [discuter] 06:11, 11 September 2015 (UTC)

For e.g. Special:Diff/171410217: Why has this category to be removed? Afterwards the image is in that Category anyway, isn't it? --Krd 08:52, 11 September 2015 (UTC)

Category:Images from Été des Villes 2015 and Category:Uploaded via Campaign:ÉtédesVilles are included in template {{L'été des villes}}. Gzen92 [discuter] 09:05, 11 September 2015 (UTC)
So, what is the benefit of removing the Category from the image page? Why can't we leave it as it is? --Krd 09:26, 11 September 2015 (UTC)
Yes it's true, except that it's cleaner. The bot also adds the template if there is that category (but it is less frequent). I had another similar request categorization : browse Category:Saints on stained glass windows and Category:Stained glass windows in France by century, put the images in common in Category:Christian saints on stained glass windows in France.

For this work, I made 20 changes for example. Gzen92 [discuter] 09:15, 17 September 2015 (UTC)
I reverted your changes per COM:OVERCAT. --Steinsplitter (talk) 07:45, 21 September 2015 (UTC)
  •   Oppose I see no need. --Steinsplitter (talk) 07:48, 21 September 2015 (UTC)
    I tend to agree, it has not yet been shown that any of the example edits is needed. --Krd 10:52, 21 September 2015 (UTC)
    Ok, it was a request of @Edelseider:. Gzen92 [discuter] 11:37, 21 September 2015 (UTC)

As the bot is now blocked for 3 weeks and there is no additional feedback, I close this as declined. --Krd 11:38, 2 October 2015 (UTC)
