If you're wondering "why did this image appear in the list? Which category was it in?" - I have provided an output dump at tools:~magog/aviation.out. It will update after the bot is finished every day. It is not formatted pretty or anything, but it should get the job done if you're curious. Magog the Ogre (talk) (contribs) 02:35, 2 October 2012 (UTC), then ask me, and I can provide it for you, if it was within the last 24 hours (the bot is now running from Wikimedia Labs, not the Toolserver). Magog the Ogre (talk) (contribs) 04:35, 8 May 2013 (UTC)

Thanks. -mattbuck (Talk) 09:58, 2 October 2012 (UTC)

Why not image X

Is there a way to work out why certain images DIDN'T get in? For instance, yesterday I uploaded File:Highbury and Islington station MMB 06 378012 378015.jpg, which should be in there. Might it be because I renamed from & to and without leaving a redirect? -mattbuck (Talk) 06:03, 29 January 2013 (UTC)

Yup that's it. The bot looks at the upload log, and it follows any redirects, but it's entirely lost if the redirect is deleted or altered. Magog the Ogre (talk) (contribs) 00:13, 30 January 2013 (UTC)

Page locked

I have locked this page because it has a potential for abuse (e.g., offensive galleries with recognizable people, or adding hundreds of categories to cause the bot to crash). Any user may feel free to add a request with the template {{Editprotected}}. Administrators are encouraged to make additions and fulfill requests - no permission is necessary. The only exception is sexual categories; please do not add categories of a sexual nature if false positives might be considered offensive before seeking my input.

Hi Magog, thanks a lot again. It's a tool, that is very smart and should IMHO be a lot more known and used. I "discovered" it by chance. Is it okay for you, if I promote in in the de-WP? --Emha (talk) 10:25, 17 May 2013 (UTC)

I followed the news at de:WP - and wrote my request on the site, as written there. I hope this is correct - of do I have to let here a request? Marcus Cyron (talk) 00:35, 22 May 2013 (UTC)

You can edit it directly, as long as you follow the stipulations in the thread immediately above. However, the categories had too many subcategories, and were picking up almost every upload (this happens sometimes), causing the bot's edit to time out. I will try to fix this when I have some time in the next week or so. Magog the Ogre (talk) (contribs) 03:49, 24 May 2013 (UTC)

✓ Done. The bot will produce two headers, and possibly duplicate images for the same day. However, I hope to have the script totally rewritten within a month so this problem will stop occurring. Magog the Ogre (talk) (contribs) 03:51, 8 August 2013 (UTC)

Bot update

I've mostly rewritten the code for the bot, because I originally did a very poor job coding it, making it difficult to add any new features. If you notice the bot malfunctioning, please inform me on my talk page.

The bot now has the following new features:

  • One can now combine multiple categories into a single gallery.
  • One can now specify that the bot should not make use of subpages.

The instructions for how to do this are on the user page. If you don't have the rights, or can't figure it out, leave a message here, and I will attend to it. Magog the Ogre (talk) (contribs) 20:44, 10 August 2013 (UTC)

Category:Korea Railroad

Yes, I am an admin, and I can do it myself, but I think doing it myself can make mess, so I would like to request it. :) —레비Revi 16:37, 15 February 2014 (UTC)

I've added it, albeit I've tweaked a few of the parameters. Magog the Ogre (talk) (contribs) 18:55, 15 February 2014 (UTC)

@Magog the Ogre: No problem, but I just wonder why bot did not fetch two new files (File:KTX-산천.jpg and File:용산역 승강장.jpg) and created a gallery. —레비Revi 01:20, 16 February 2014 (UTC)

And note that I changed to Category:Rail transport in South Korea.—레비Revi 09:27, 16 February 2014 (UTC)

Because they were uploaded on the 16th, not the 15th. OgreBot runs the tool for the previous day at around 00:50 UTC every day. Magog the Ogre (talk) (contribs) 01:06, 17 February 2014 (UTC)

Oh, I see it worked yesterday, but why not today with adding File:갈대와 기차 from cc photoshare.jpg and File:KTX Seoul Station Seoul.jpg? All cat added yesterday. —레비Revi 03:57, 18 February 2014 (UTC)

The bot does not recognize categories added to an image after it's already looked at that day's uploads. The category addition was at 0200 UTC, and the bot ran about an hour before that. Actually, this is a problem elsewhere; I think I'm going to delay the bot run until 0600 or 1200 to avoid having as much of this problem. Magog the Ogre (talk) (contribs) 05:18, 18 February 2014 (UTC)

Latter image yesterday is added after 1000 UTC. So if bot checks today's update in 0050 UTC, bot does not add cat added rest of the day? —레비Revi 05:42, 18 February 2014 (UTC)

Correct. The bot only adds new images. It doesn't include categories added to old images. Magog the Ogre (talk) (contribs) 05:32, 20 February 2014 (UTC)

Then, what if I upload photo after 0050? Is it ignored or included in the next day? —레비Revi 05:51, 20 February 2014 (UTC)

If you upload a photo between 0000-2359 of day 1, then you must categorize it by 0040 of day 2. If you upload a file on 0000 or later on day 2, then you must categorize it by 0040 of day 3. Magog the Ogre (talk) (contribs) 22:16, 21 February 2014 (UTC)
