Upload wizard not working when I upload 5 files at once with each one having a different license[edit]

When I was attempting to upload 5 files at once, all having different sources and license information, after providing their descriptions, there are two types of error messages which I get, and the upload does not continue (with Internet Explorer 9):

Upload resulted in an <api-error-unknownerror>[edit]

I tried to upload a series of 10 photos, which after going through the entire form resulted in an <api-error-unknownerror> message without ability to go back and fix.

Error "Could not understand the file name"[edit]

Error "Could not understand the file name" while uploading from Flickr I submitted the bug to Bugzilla. Yann (talk) 02:18, 17 November 2013 (UTC)


Having had the same file rejected three times with the message <api-error-stasherror> I understand that you won't accept that file. But I have no idea why as <api-error-stasherror> is meaningless to me. I'd previously had a different failed upload message, and hitting retry for failed uploads did get me three files uploaded instead of just one, but it took several attempts.

unsuccesful upload[edit]

When upload is unsuccesful in last step (step means: learn, upload, release rights, describe, use) (for example now: upload wrong, incorrect extension .null), i cant click on back button, correct mistakes and upload it again. Only way is every information what i filled in first time again and search for it around all internet. It will be very very better to have possiblility click on rest of steps in upload proces and correct it (for example i will click in describe step or use step to release rights step and correct it or so) and upload it succesful without second-time filling.. Thank if it will be possible to make in future.. Palu (talk) 00:01, 19 November 2013 (UTC)

Custom license for your own images[edit]

I can't figure out how I would upload a file I created but that is inherently in the public domain (PD-text in this case). I don't have the rights to license such a file under any license, except for maybe CC0.

There needs to be an option to allow for a custom license for your own images. Trlkly (talk) 05:09, 8 December 2013 (UTC)

Category search[edit]

The reason I never put categories on any images is two-fold. One, there's no built-in category search here at the uploader. Two, I know there's a bot that will do it automatically, and will do a better job than I could.

If you want users to always choose categories, you need to provide search capabilities from the uploader. Trlkly (talk) 05:29, 8 December 2013 (UTC)

Error when uploading large files[edit]

I've uploaded about 20 documents (PDFs) couple hundred MB last night using UploadWizard, and I've meticulously entered all the details, but when I clicked the "Next" button, it didn't do anything, and it didn't display any error. I don't want to redo it all over again, so since I had the same experience before, I changed the right to 'own work'. When I press the "Next" button, it goes to step 4, but every document now have <api-error-stasherror>. Frustrating!!! And there is no back button!

Using this page to update form fields?[edit]

Is this the right place to suggest new form fields and options? A discussion about consent noted that the upload for doesn't provide any possibility for the uploader to indicate consent was obtained for publishing photos if they are of identifiable living people.

A new pair of consent-related fields is being discussed On the village pump, and referenced this page as the place to discuss that detail. --SJ+ 19:30, 25 December 2013 (UTC)

Related: it's not clear how the fields the Upload Wizard as an extension are maintained or updated. Is there a mediawiki-message method for updating it? Does a customized sef of fields currently require an update to the entire core extension? Should these discussions happen here and not at --SJ+ 19:30, 25 December 2013 (UTC)
AFAIK, the current Multi-Media-Team is working on a solution which involves parsing TemplateData (c.f. for example {{information}}). Adding new fields is, however nothing I would welcome, I would appreciate an Assistant that helps you with everything (i.e. copyright concerning derivative works, personality rights, ...), by asking clever questions (having a decision tree in mind) reducing the amount of fields one has to work on. Let me give you an example: Does the image show humans that are still alive? - If not, no consent-queries are required at all. It is a simple question that everyone will be able to answer. On the other hand, if you shower the user in questions about the location the image was taken + are the individuals notable + did they consent for every upload, you are overstepping the mark, I think; and we would be back to what we had with the old upload form. I suggest discussing this on a separate page so it doesn't get buried. -- Rillke(q?) 13:36, 27 December 2013 (UTC)
I like the assistant - just a single question unless you answer 'Yes'. I'm ok with a separate page for this, though it's not a terribly involved request: it just has to happen in some simple fashion. --SJ+ 11:08, 30 December 2013 (UTC)
It would be worthwhile to have a somewhat in-depth discussion prior to making any changes -- after all, the clean look of the current Upload Wizard resulted from a good many discussions, as well as the dedicated work of interface designers. But simply creating another page isn't sufficient for getting a good deliberation -- somebody would have to step up to guide the process.
I do think SJ's path is a workable alternative, but we should be very careful to revisit the feature and see if there's anything that was missed after the fact.
As SJ proposes, it should start with the "yes/no" question above, but we still need to figure out where that question lives in the Wizard, and what a "yes" answer leads to. Here's a possible list:
  • [ ] I am the person depicted, my consent is legally meaningful, and I consent to broad publication of this file
  • [ ] All the people depicted (or, where those people are not legally qualified to consent, their guardians) informed me that they consent to broad publication of this file
  • [ ] All the people depicted are public figures, and therefore consent is not required
  • [ ] The people depicted were in a public place, or had no reasonable expectation of privacy, and therefore consent is not required
  • [ ] The file was published by a respected organization or professional photographer, who we can reasonably assume obtained all necessary consent
  • [ ] Other: __________________
I want to emphasize the importance of "Other" in a case where we may have failed to anticipate all possibilities!
Finally, how is all this recorded in the file's metadata? It would make sense for it to add the {{consent}} template; but IMHO (and according to many on the template's talk page), there are significant use cases that are not covered by that template's current implementation; so we will need to improve the template. In addition, the current "Media Viewer" software being developed creates a "splash screen" that includes a subset of what is on a file's Commons page; should that page include information about personality rights as well? -Pete F (talk) 05:37, 14 January 2014 (UTC)
I neglected to add a line for insufficient consent, along the lines of the item "I found this item somewhere on the Internet" in the copyright section of the wizard as it currently works. Related to this, I want to point out the possibility of unintended consequences. Even without this feature, we occasionally get somebody making a less than credible claim that they attained explicit consent from the subject of the photo; while I of course assume good faith as a general rule, it would be naive to pretend that things like revenge porn don't exist. Will asking for an explicit statement significantly increase the number of people lying about consent? I hope not, but I don't know. It's worthwhile to consider how we will watch out for that, and how we might respond if this turns out to be a problem. -Pete F (talk) 21:01, 16 January 2014 (UTC)

Upload-Formular hängt im Loop[edit]

Public domain This image (or other media file) is in the public domain because its copyright has expired.

This applies to Australia, the European Union and those countries with a copyright term of life of the author plus 70 years.

Note that a few countries have copyright terms longer than 70 years: Mexico has 100 years, Colombia has 80 years, and Guatemala and Samoa have 75 years, Russia has 74 years for some authors. This image may not be in the public domain in these countries, which moreover do not implement the rule of the shorter term.

Upload fails[edit]

I have completed detailed descriptions for a bunch of photos, and when I go to publish them, the page basically stops working. The circles keep spinning, but it goes nowhere after tens of minutes. I have to restart ENTIRELY, which is terrible... this is defective. Theskuj (talk) 02:47, 20 January 2014 (UTC)

I've been having this same problem. The initial image upload is a little slow, but works fine even for several images. I then release the rights just fine, and add descriptions, etc, but at the following "Submitting details and publishing" stage, it always seems to hang, usually on the first three photos. I can leave it working for an hour, and the progress wheels just keep spinning but never complete. Occasionally one will succeed (I'll get the green check mark) and another progress wheel will start. The strange thing is that any image that gets to the progress wheel stage *does* actually get uploaded. If I close the page (abandoning the upload), the images are still available on commons. But since it usually gets stuck on the first three, if I try to upload more than three images at a time, those beyond the first three are lost and I need to restart. Any thoughts on this (besides uploading three images at a time) from anyone? Thanks - Illustratedjc (talk) 09:30, 29 January 2014 (UTC)
I'm still having this same problem. It fails the same way in both firefox and chrome. Any ideas? Thanks - Illustratedjc (talk) 11:36, 17 March 2014 (UTC)

Still the 50 limit?[edit]

Could the 50 limit for flickr sets be raised, at least for admins? The system seems a lot more stable and lag-free than it was when 50 was set as the maximum. I'm not advocating for infinite size, but 100 would be nice. -mattbuck (Talk) 20:47, 20 January 2014 (UTC)

Alternatives to Template:Information[edit]

Hi all, as a Wikipedian-in-Residence, uploading images from a GLAM (project pages) very few of our images conform to the standard information template. It would be great if we could use alternatives such as Template:Artwork for the fine art collections and Template:Specimen for the natural history collections. I notice that this issue was logged back in 2010 and 2012. I have found the customised Upload Wizard for the WikiArS projects but cannot find a simpler one as suggested by Peter_Weis. Am I just having a search-skills failure? Is it possible to create such tools? (By the way, I know about the Mass-upload tool and will be using it soon - but it is not suitable for volunteers/curators who are learning to make simple uploads). Thanks! I hope this would be useful for the whole GLAMwiki initiative PatHadley (talk) 11:33, 23 January 2014 (UTC)

Date of First Publication.[edit]

Forcing month and day to be entered for images over 100 years old is next to impossible. To get round this requires entry of spurious months and days that are misleading Restoredprints (talk) 21:22, 21 February 2014 (UTC)

Se "borraron" fotos del Artículo "Pedro Laurenz"[edit]

Al editar la ortografía se "borraron" accidentalmente fotos, de las que figuranen rojo sus ubicaciones en "W. Commons", pero no sé cómo restituírlas. Gerardo Chia. Gerardo Chia (talk) 00:55, 22 February 2014 (UTC)

El problema reportado hace minutos ya fue solucionado.[edit]

Ál editar el Art. "Pedro Laurenz" (corrigiendo, Láurenz con acento) al haber CAMBIADO esa palabra colocando acentos, ésto se había hecho también inadvertidamente en los vínculos de algunas fotos. Al RESTABLECER esa palabra y volver a escribirla (EN LOS VÍNCULOS) sin acento, el problema se solucionó. Muchas gracias, Gerardo Chia. Gerardo Chia (talk) 01:50, 22 February 2014 (UTC)

Eliminada foto cima Everest Carlos Pauner[edit]

Won't go from "Describe" to "Use" page when I click "Next"[edit]

I just tried to upload two files. I filled in all the fields with the red asterisk on the "Describe" page but when I click "Next" it doesn't take me to the "Use" page. Anthonyhcole (talk) 07:40, 25 February 2014 (UTC)

How well does this work[edit]

Generally this wizard is easy to use, but I would prefer 2 slight modifications.

Firstly, to be able to set the destination file name at the same time as selecting and uploading rather than at the later stage. When using this for the first time, I was all set to abort the upload and change the file name on my computer before selecting again.

Secondly, the option of entering a Permission statement through this wizard instead of by editing the file after the upload wizard has finished the process. My Permission is a reminder of attribution, even though this is included in the license, because people don't bother to read the license. Robert of Ramsor (talk) 03:35, 2 March 2014 (UTC)

How do I upload a new copy of a 350MB webm video file?[edit]

I have downloaded

and run it through ffmpeg to remove the interlacing artefacts of the digitizing process. I now have a 350MB video file I would like to upload as a new version of the same file (to preserve the links from other wikis).

I've never used the Upload Wizard before so I don't know if it's possible to upload a new copy through that and the upload new copy form on the original video page says 100MB max.

How do I go about getting this file up as a new copy?

Thanks, Skrrp (talk) 19:20, 5 March 2014 (UTC)

ChunkedUpload.js should work for you (up to a 500MB size). --Pristurus (talk) 23:20, 5 March 2014 (UTC)

Uploading delay[edit]

I went through the upload process and I can't tell whether I'm really uploading anything. How long does it take? J Estruth (talk) 16:04, 6 March 2014 (UTC)

This all depends on how big your file is and what speed your Internet is. If you're using the standard upload form then you are still uploading if your browser is showing the 'working' animation for the page. You can just leave it and wait. If it fails your browser will tell you. Skrrp (talk) 18:52, 7 March 2014 (UTC)

It would be interesting that the item was added city where the photo was taken. This would avoid the difficulty of geographically locate certain pictures. This item should be mandatory. This would eliminate the categories unidentified locations. Paulo RS Menezes (talk) 23:21, 17 March 2014 (UTC)

Foto's gebruiken[edit]

Goeienavond, een goed uur geleden heb ik drie foto's van evenzoveel oorlogsmonumenten geüploadet (via de wizard) i.h.k.v. de fotoactie. Tijdens de fase 'Beschrijven' liep de wizard vast en daardoor zijn de foto's niet gekoppeld aan de betreffende monumentenpagina. Hoe kan ik datalsnog doen? vrgr, Eric.
