  • You know there's a bot that already does this automatically right? It's not immediate, but every file will get it eventually. --99of9 (talk) 11:07, 28 February 2013 (UTC)
  • Yeah, I don't think it would be a good idea to have a second bot on that task. Imagine if bot A compiles a list of images to process and goes down the list one by one. In the meantime bot B coincidentally processes images that are on bot A's list. Bot A is still fetching those pages (and checking if the change is necessary), thus it saves no time (or electrons). --Dschwen (talk) 19:30, 28 February 2013 (UTC)
