The reason for this not working /may/ be that there's a text, but no
image to copy ;-)
Anyway, that error is now caught and shown.
* Check the image text for "delete me"

which ones do you have so far?
You can see the current list by clicking on "source of this script"
(even if you don't speak code;-)
The deleting admin *has* to copy the new image
url line, otherwise the
image can never be found again! That way, the image is stored away from
public eyes but still restorable through the deleting admin.
I think instead it should make an edit to the image page saying
"BACK-UP COPY AT (url)". Because the image is about to be deleted
anyway. If time proves the image should be undeleted, you can just
undelete the image page, recover the URL and go from there. That seems
much easier than storing the URL on my local machine for example. It
would also save one manual step ;)
I added a button which will open the edit page and append that message
(also fill in the summary). You'll have to click it (and "Save")
I didn't get one that was actually used, though,
so I'm not sure what
the check-usage part of the interface will look like.
One line for each wikimedia project that uses the image; in this line,
project name, how many articles, talk pages, project pages, etc. use it
For details (which pages actually use the image), click on "details" ;-)
Do TPTB approve of this use of the toolserver? If
commons admins get
into it, it seems like it could be reasonably intensive...
I posted it on toolserver-l, and so far, noone complained. Tim Starling
made a good suggestion; I'll talk to him about this.
At some point, I'll have to really delete these images, no matter the
disk space available. I'd assume it's safe to /really/ delete them if
they were not resurrected within three month or so.
