DatBot 6Edit

Any thoughts on getting this task back and running? Theo's bot is still working fine, but we both know that it will fall over in a month or two. Is this due to you changing to python 3? If you think it's not fixable in python3 let me know - I could request running it here as I'm still on 2.7. Ronhjones  (Talk) 22:12, 19 December 2018 (UTC)

@Ronhjones: I can enable it, but I'm not sure what to do about the issue aforementioned. Dat GuyTalkContribs 16:58, 26 December 2018 (UTC)
I realise that, but it will need fixing first or any modern camera jpg is likely to get rotated. Theo use "pyexiv2" to transfer the EXIF data. I assume when you updated to Python3 that part did not work - I think (not sure - I use python 2.7) it needs "py3exiv2" to do that in Python 3. Can you repair the code to work properly again?
It ran on pyexiv2. The part that didn't work was using it on toolforge. I just found this though, so I'll try to do some stuff with that on a testwiki and see if I can fix it. Dat GuyTalkContribs 21:37, 29 December 2018 (UTC)
You can also use File:Testorientation.jpg as a test image - just keep reverting and re-trying. Without EXIF transfer it will end up as a landscape - it was taken with my DSLR and has the "Orientation Rotated 90° CW" in the EXIF. I'll delete it when it's not required (the original is on commons). Ronhjones  (Talk) 19:28, 6 January 2019 (UTC)
@Ronhjones: I've cleaned up some stuff on Labs and managed to import pyexiv. I'll hopefully get it to work soon. Dat GuyTalkContribs 21:38, 16 January 2019 (UTC)


Looks fine to me - that's the full compliment of EXIF data correctly imported into the reduced image, and as the "Orientation" parameter is there, we don't have the image incorrectly rotated. Let me know when you activate it and I'll turn Theo's bot off. Ronhjones  (Talk) 16:09, 17 January 2019 (UTC)
I've scheduled it for midnight. Dat GuyTalkContribs 19:57, 18 January 2019 (UTC)
Nice to have it back. Theo's Little Bot 1 now disabled. Ronhjones  (Talk) 23:43, 20 January 2019 (UTC)
  • Bot Stalled? No edits for a few days. I'll put Theo on until sorted. Ronhjones  (Talk) 21:56, 4 February 2019 (UTC)
Ronhjones Ok, I allocated it some more memory. Should be ok to turn off TLB now. Dat GuyTalkContribs 12:21, 5 February 2019 (UTC)
Thanks - Theo did not start anyway. Looks like its old problem has kicked in - I think it runs out of temp space as it saves the file before and after, and does not delete them, maybe Theo set it for a small number of daily files, not like the number we are getting now. I see DatBot has cleared the backlog. Ronhjones  (Talk) 16:45, 5 February 2019 (UTC)
