Closed as Successful - apologies for the delay. The test edits are just what is needed for these files. Please also add the Image_info if missing. As for which categories to skip, please use your best judgement. Meta user-page is fine. [24Cr][talk] 22:52, 22 October 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]
MGA73: The bot has only made eight edits here. To satisfy the letter of WN:Bots/Policy's requirement of 10-20 [bot] edits for demonstration purposes (I presume all of those must be local), can you have it make a few more? And what's the minimum edit rate like? The policy requires a maximum of Heavy Water (talk) 17:42, 18 August 2023 (UTC) 12 per minute, which you say is the your bot's maximum. I assume, as a global bot operator, you're aware of the practices in the "Best practices" section of the policy. But I don't understand your reasoning for why you would skip Category:February 2006. Could you explain that more, please? BTW, the edit you linked to above as an example of what the bot would do appears to have been to a now-deleted image.

Heavy Water Thank you for your answer. I did a few more edits.
As for the minimum edits it is not easy to say because I monitor the edits as they happen. So it depends on if I'm distracted by something or not. The rule is that there should be a minimum of 5 seconds between each edit. That will result in a maximum of 12 edits per minute. But I'm open for other edit speeds if that is prefered.
I meant to say the policy sets a maximum of twelve per minute, and was only curious what your bot's minimum was, but omitted some words. We place an article in all relevant categories, even if it's already in parent categories (so it's easier for readers to find the latest news about a topic, instead of having to sift through subcategories), but I wasn't aware of any local convention for files. Looking at other month categories, like Category:February 2008, I see a lot of Print Edition files placed in those as well as in date categories.
