  • Why do we need to clone such accounts instead of share existing ones? Sure, only one bot operator should be active at one time. --EugeneZelenko (talk) 16:12, 27 January 2014 (UTC)
I see no problems with a clone. But the "(clone)" in the username is imho disturbing. --Steinsplitter (talk) 16:14, 27 January 2014 (UTC)
I'd also slightly prefer something like "Picasa Review Bot 2", but this isn't make or break for me. --99of9 (talk) 01:39, 28 January 2014 (UTC)
@Steinsplitter, 99of9: You mean to renameuser? --Zhuyifei1999 (talk) 08:03, 28 January 2014 (UTC)
Yes. If you're happy with this, I can do the rename. --99of9 (talk) 20:58, 29 January 2014 (UTC)
Ok then. --Zhuyifei1999 (talk) 01:28, 30 January 2014 (UTC)
  Done --99of9 (talk) 01:36, 30 January 2014 (UTC)
@Zhuyifei1999: If you are ready and there are no remaining issues, I think we can go ahead and flag the bot so you can help fighting the backlog :-) odder (talk) 17:11, 7 February 2014 (UTC)
I guess so (though I'm not really a C# programmer). --Zhuyifei1999 (talk) 06:47, 8 February 2014 (UTC)
@Zhuyifei1999:   Done, the bot is now flagged. odder (talk) 20:37, 9 February 2014 (UTC)
