|Automatic or manual?||Automatic|
|Other information:||Bug reports and feature requests can be made at User talk:TheSandDoctor, but TSD's Phabricator install is the preferred method and reports will just be copied over there anyways. That Phabricator is designed for TSB issue tracking.|
|Task 1||Approved.||Corrects erroneous dates, by extracting the right date from EXIF.||-Inactive|
|Task 2||Approved.||Scan for corrupted images in the existing catalog as well as scanning recent changes. When found, these images are tagged/logged. After a period of 7 (new uploads) or 30 (existing catalog) days, the latest version of the images are then re-scanned. If corrupt, they are then nominated for speedy deletion and the human admin confirmation that that entails.||-Active|
Instructions for disabling botEdit
Administrators (or extended-confirmed editors), please see User:TheSandBot/status if you wish to shut down the bot. In the event that the bot runs wild on a task (which it shouldn't) or otherwise needs to be shut down, change the text on the page's corresponding key value pair from "true" to "false" (is case sensitive; only one value can exist in the pair at a given time). Other than the true/false values, please do not change any other values, insert/remove commas etc (all the page content must stay JSON safe/legal in order for the bot to understand it). Once changed to false, that will stop the bot when it attempts to save the edit as it checks/"calls home" to that page before saving. In the event that the corresponding key/value pair contains the text "false", the script will show an error in my console and terminate. This will necessitate a restart by TSD (poke TheSandDoctor for that or send them an email), even if set back to "true".
In the event that you do shut down the bot, please send a message to TheSandDoctor (either through talk page, email, or IRC) notifying them of this and the reason for shutting the bot down. Thank you!
