subir un archivo en word[edit]

No puedo enviar un archivo en word, porque no me lo aceptan. Ignoro el modo de poder hacerlo. Muchas gracias Jordigal (talk) 16:54, 30 August 2014 (UTC)

Hi Jordigal! It doesn't look like anyone who speaks Spanish is going to answer. We don't host Microsoft Word documents here. There are two main reasons for this:
  1. Microsoft Word files typically consist primarily of text. Wikimedia Commons is a media repository. We primarily host media files: images, video and audio. See Commons:Project scope/Summary/es.
  2. Microsoft Word typically uses a non-standard, proprietary legacy file format. Commons only hosts free content in free file formats. See Commons:File types. LX (talk, contribs) 15:10, 23 September 2014 (UTC)

photo wanted for sarles tavern, rte 100, Millwood NY[edit]

I live a couple of miles from where this building is shown on the map requesting images of historic buildings. I have fond memories of having a beer there after work at the IBM Lab across the street from my house.

Unfortunately, this building was torn down sometime after 1976. If you would like more details, I can probably find out the relevant dates from the town, or by knocking on the door of the closest house.

I have an 1867 map of virtually every building from New York to Albany,

Hello Rodneythodgson, this is not really the right page for requests like this. Suggest you try Commons:Picture requests. --El Grafo (talk) 12:37, 23 September 2014 (UTC)

Uploading several files failed[edit]

I can't upload 7 files at once using upload wizard. Clicking "Next" after Description has no effect - doesn't work, no error message, no progress bar - nothing. This seems to be the same problem that other users reported above. I'll try Commons:Upload and write all the descriptions once more. -- Juergen (talk) 14:07, 23 September 2014 (UTC)

There are some alternative batch uploading tools listed at Commons:Upload tools#Standalone desktop applications, which may work better, but I haven't used them, so I can't vouch for them personally. LX (talk, contribs) 14:57, 23 September 2014 (UTC)

Former step[edit]

it would be very nice if there would be the possibility to come back one or more steps, before finishing the upload. Ruthven (talk) 19:45, 23 September 2014 (UTC)


could you add a section for Iran? Zhinga91 (talk) 07:47, 26 September 2014 (UTC)

Language of description by EXIF data[edit]

It takes now the description out of the EXIF data. That is quite good. But it always takes "english" als language in the drop-off-menu. So I have to change manually of all files the language. Actually I have "german" and not "english" in the preferences. It should preselect the language of the preferences in the drop-off-menu also when it imports the EXIF data description! --Micha (talk) 11:46, 28 September 2014 (UTC)

undesirable rotations[edit]

While uploading the wizard sometimes spontaneously rotates pictures which are already in portrait format. This seems to take some extra time, producing an unusable result... This behaviour is not consistent: it does not occur with all protrait images and if I keep retrying an upload without rotation is possible. Am I doing something wrong, or is this a bug? MarcoSwart (talk) 20:19, 4 October 2014 (UTC)

Examples? Most likely these images have been rotated by you using an improper program that doesn't remove the rotation tag from the image's Exif data. Windoze image viewer and some version from Apple are known for this.--Denniss (talk) 10:30, 5 October 2014 (UTC)

Hochladen von Fotos per 5.10.14 - 24:00[edit]

Kann es sein, dass die Hochladezeit nicht auf Sommerzeit gestellt ist und tatsächlich ab 23:00 nicht mehr möglich war. 48 Fotos die ich bereits geladen hatte und um 23:00 noch umbenennen musste, wurden mit geänderter Bezeichnung ab 23:00 h nicht mehr geladen und meine Arbeit war umsonst.

What is missing with the titles?[edit]

Soorry I cannot understand what is not correct with my titles and how do you wanted these..? Thank you "" (talk) 14:55, 14 October 2014 (UTC)

You'll need to be a bit more specific, Mersina: What exactly were the titles that were refused (we need at least some examples) and what was the error message you got from that (if any). --El Grafo (talk) 17:47, 14 October 2014 (UTC)

Not helpful[edit]

I think THIS is PD, as the facts are not copyrightable, and the rest does not meet the Threshold of originality (see here and) but the wizard is of no help WRT how to upload it and tag it appropriately. Elvey (talk) 18:50, 16 October 2014 (UTC)

choix de la licence[edit]

Unwanted characters[edit]

I'm having problems while uploading some sound files (.ogg) with Upload Wizard. After adding the descriptions, cats, etc, i receive the message "Este título contém alguns caracteres indesejáveis. Remova-os, por favor." (en: "This title has some unwanted characters. Please remove them."). The files are named "Eo-dek", "Eo-deka", "Eo-dekaj", "Eo-dekajn", "Eo-dekan" and the message is displayed in all of them. I could upload "Eo-dudek" using Upload Wizard in the same computer (Win8+Opera 25.0). Where could be the problem? CasteloBrancodiskuto 16:38, 21 October 2014 (UTC)

Also in Firefox 33.0 and Chrome 35.0.1916.114. Same files, same titles, same description and same error. Please help me, i have hundreds of files to upload, i need a tool to upload them (i'd take months to upload them one by one). Thanks in advance. CasteloBrancodiskuto 17:03, 21 October 2014 (UTC)
That probably means that at least one of your filenames contains one of these characters (mostly invisible characters). LX (talk, contribs) 18:18, 21 October 2014 (UTC)
I followed your tip (some messages above) and tried VicuñaUploader and there was no issues related to these same files and filenames. I will keep using Vicuña for now on, but it would be great if someone fix this bug in Upload Wizard, as it seems to be happening with other people. Thanks.

Upload failure[edit]

Hi, I am Pronacampo9 - I tried to upload a graph in PDF yesterday, on the main Upload Wizard, but failed. I converted the PDF into jpg and png format, but these, too, fail to upload.

Upload Wizard Hangs[edit]

While uploading JPG images I find the Upload Wizard frequently hangs at the second stage while "Getting file information and previews..." showing 1 second remaining - or Finished!. Even if I wait 5 minutes for this, nothing happens and I have to resort to the old upload form. I'm uploading from Bhutan so my connection is not speedy - but that just makes it all the more frustrating when I have to upload again. Cfynn (talk) 12:27, 9 November 2014 (UTC)

didn't work[edit]

I uploaded an image and thought it was done, but the image never showed up on the wikipedia page. So, what you have done here did not work, even though it seemed all was OK.

Other websites allows us to upload images in an intuitive and correctible way, maybe you should copy one of those techniques. ScienceSense (talk) 08:24, 10 November 2014 (UTC)

showing more than the first 50 flickr images?[edit]

Hello. Is it possible to show more than just the first 50 flickr images of a stream? This would make it much easier to upload the best images of a flickr user to commons. cheers Amada44  talk to me 21:15, 11 November 2014 (UTC)

Plenty of bugs![edit]

  1. 1 when uploading more than one pic, next page shows first pic with same name as last pic, and changes the type too, but not to the type of the last.
  2. 2 when there is an error on the publish function, there is no opportunity to go back to correct it. Unbuttered Parsnip (talk) 03:01, 16 November 2014 (UTC)

and another one[edit]

  1. 3 entering a very long description causes the whole page to lock up. Allowing browser to reload page goes back to the upload input screen. Unbuttered Parsnip (talk) 03:02, 16 November 2014 (UTC)
