Hoo Bot on[edit]

Thanks for letting me know about Hoo Bot. Currently my script is working fine, so there is actually no need for Hoo Bot to work on that anymore. However, if you insist, which is also fine, you can pick up where you left and continue updating the picture. Furthermore, in my current script I have added the possibility of adding an image description (if available in Bosnian) from commons. So you would need to update your code if you haven't already done so. Note also that I have set the protection level of that page from "sysop" to "autoconfirmed" (offering enough protection in my opinion), which means that Hoo Bot does not need an admin flag anymore. I would therefore suggest to remove it. If you agree let me know so we can take care of it. -- Edinwiki (talk) 12:49, 3 January 2014 (UTC)

I've just disabled the cron job for the bot and will get the sysop flag removed. In case you need help again, just ping me. Cheers, Hoo man (talk) 11:14, 5 January 2014 (UTC)

Request for feedback on my GSoC'14 proposal[edit]

Hi Hoo man,

I am planning to work on the project titled "Tools for mass migration of legacy translated wiki content" this summer under Google Summer of Code. I have drafted a proposal for the same over the past few weeks. This project is going to help the translation adminstrators like you in a great way, as it would completely automate the tedious manual task of preparing a page for translation and then importing the translations into the Translate extension. You can check the proposal page for detailed information on how I plan to accomplish this.

As you would be an end user of this tool, it would be great if you could go through the proposal and provide feedback/suggestions. Your feedback would definitely help me improve the proposal as well help in creating an even better tool. You can do the same on the discussion page of the proposal or reply here, whichever is convenient for you. I look forward to hearing from you! Thank you!

P.S: I need to submit the proposal to Google by March 19, 2014.
