Hi, I'm back, sorry that it took a while.

Generally, every wiki's rule is: Be bold! This means that if you want to edit something, don't be shy. Mass edits are another league though, and are normally reserved for admins only. That's why there are several restriction hints on the MassCategorization doc page.

Another, equally important principle of every wiki is: Consensus. Major changes should be discussed with other users. If you are not sure if your planned change will affect other users or the whole wiki structure: Ask.

"The problem is that I don't know how to tag the account as a Bot, so I decided to try the Bot without this flag."

If you don't know something: Ask. And wait for the answer. This was a mass edit without consensus. Although we had talked about it before, we did not decide to actually do it. It was a recommendation from your side.

The reason why I insist on these rules is not that admins are keen on controlling everything. It is that JavaScript is extremely powerful, and as long as you aren't really aware of the consequences of a script, better ask and try to find a consensus first. What if you, by accident, deleted the wrong category from 1,000 pages? Would you be able to find all these pages afterwards to correct the mistake, now that the pages don't have the category to find them? Or would you prefer to go through 1,000 pages in the change log to do it manually?

That's why bots should have separate flagged accounts. Their changes show up in different logs and can be traced better this way.

As for the image categories: All image categories should have "images" at the end of the name (as long as it's not "icons" or smething similar that directly implies that it's an image). If you decide to assign a new category to an image, the new category should also be categorized. If not, the new category will just fly around somewhere in wiki space.
