De nombreux dysfonctionnements[edit]

Les vignettes ne sont plus produites lors du téléversement, et ceci depuis une ou deux semaines déjà !

En plus, il faut désormais double-cliquer ou "triple-cliquer" dans les champs du formulaire afin de pouvoir saisir du texte ou copier du texte.

Avec les modifications récentes, l'utilisation du Wizard devient plus en plus malaisé. P.poschadel (talk) 10:24, 26 December 2014 (UTC)

Agrandissement des champs de saisie de texte[edit]

Depuis quelque semaines, les champs "Description" et "Autres informations" prennent la moitié de mon écran dès que l'on clique dedans. Ainsi, les informations liées à un seul fichier dépassent déjà la taille de l'écran, et il faut sans cesse utiliser la barre de défilement. On n'aurait pas pu créer un outil plus encombrant et plus malaisé à utiliser. Je proteste vivement contre ces freins à un usage facile de l'outil, que des développeurs éloignés des besoins réels des besoins des usagers nous imposent. En plus, que ça ne fonctionne même plus correctement (voir ci-dessus), vous voulez faire fuire les contributeurs ou quoi ??? P.poschadel (talk) 10:28, 26 December 2014 (UTC)

Previews broken[edit]

When uploading shots from Flickr or from the local drive, I'm getting "The upload succeeded, but the server could not get a preview thumbnail." errors at the Upload stage, and there is a lack of previews available from that point on from within the Upload Wizard. Happens to uploads in both Firefox and Chrome. Tabercil (talk) 16:19, 3 January 2015 (UTC)

In case anyone else is experiencing this bug, please report any console errors or network traffic issues on the Phabricator bug linked above - I'm having trouble reproducing, and I have no idea what's actually going on, so knowing if it's a 500 error or an API response gone wrong or a JavaScript syntax error will help immensely. --MarkTraceur (talk) 16:09, 15 January 2015 (UTC)

Mini-bilder syns ej![edit]

Mini-bilder syns inte i uppladdningsguiden längre. Detta gör det mycket svårare att ladda upp större mängder bilder varje gång eftersom man i en lång lista inte ser vilka bilder som sedan kan läggas in i olika artiklar. Man tvingas istället öppna varje enskild bild i Commons gång på gång på gång.... FrankieF (talk) 15:27, 6 January 2015 (UTC)


I wanted to post some photo's of the beautiful landscape and geography of the hill country in Lowndes MO, (There is very little listed about Lowndes and it is a beautiful area of the Ozark Mountains with a rich cultural history and heritage) however, the program will not allow me to download it.

New tool needed[edit]

It would be very useful to WikiProject BSicon if there was a tool available that would allow the re-uploading of multiple files at one time (similar to the UploadWizard), instead of having to click on [Upload a new version of this file] for each individual file that needed to be revised or updated. In order to prevent misuse and abuse, I would suggest that it be restricted to those editors with Filemover or greater privileges (and possible be set so that it only works on files that start with BSicon_ and have a filetype of .svg).

Problèmes d'importation avec Artwork[edit]

J'ai importé de très nombreuses photos de tableaux avec le système Artwork jusqu'à présent sans problème. Je viens d'importer la photo suivante File:José de Ribera-Les larmes de saint Pierre.jpg et c'est la catatastrophe : voir la photo. En effet à l'importation le signe | placé devant les diverses rubriques est transformé en & # 1 2 4 ; ce qui rend les commentaires illisibles. J'ai fait les rectifications pour trois autres photos mais cela est long ; je pense qu'il y a un dysfonctionnement dans le système d'importation. Cela a-t-il été déjà signalé ? Que faut-il faire ? je pense qu'il y a un bug dû à une modification.Robert Valette (talk) 16:26, 15 January 2015 (UTC)

Uploads Page inaccessible![edit]

When I click on uploads link, it takes me to a page where all the text is embedded in an image rather than as actual text. How is this even remotely accessible for the visually impaired or blind to use?!? Please change the images into actual text so I can read the instructions and find the process to actually upload my files. Thank you very much.

Bryen M Yunashko Bryeny (talk) 18:57, 20 January 2015 (UTC)

Hi Bryeny! I agree that this is not acceptable. The image doesn't even have an alt attribute. Luckily, you're not missing much, as the image tutorial is very superficial. If you read Commons:Project scope/Summary, you'll know way more than this silly little cartoon would tell you. Cheers, LX (talk, contribs) 14:54, 4 February 2015 (UTC)

need to delete recent upload[edit]

Hi. I tried uploading all the illustration images of a book. i had the organiztion of the images in the file names so that i knew which image goes to which chapter.

somehow though the file names all became identical and now i can't make sense to apply the individial images to their respective places in the book on wikisource. now it won't let me re-upload because the content is already on commons.... Roxette5 (talk) 11:19, 22 January 2015 (UTC)

Ogg files upload: "this type of file is banned"[edit]

When uploading OGG files, the files are transferred ok, but then an error message shows: "this type of file is banned".

Is this a bug, or a new policy by Wikipedia Commons?

Adding comment at description[edit]

As I mentioned in the Village pump I suggest that it would help when in the upload form is mentioned near the description something like “please mention where the photo was taken (country/city ...). This would help in categorizing. Descriptions as “Wow” or “Here we had dinner” or only “castle” are not very helpful. Wouter (talk) 18:52, 25 January 2015 (UTC)

Assuming it's a photo (and not a video, music recording, sheet music, map, logo, diagram, drawing, book scan etc.) where the location is relevant (so not a photo of a household item, a product photo, a studio portrait etc.) – which might be true for a large share of uploads, but certainly far from all. Commons accepts a very diverse range of content, and we should be careful not to word instructions in a way that makes people think only a certain type of content is desired. LX (talk, contribs) 20:36, 25 January 2015 (UTC)
You are right with your comments, but when uploading a photo and pressing on the ? behind the heading description you see “Beschrijf het werk. Vermeld voor een foto bijvoorbeeld wat er te zien is, wanneer de foto is genomen, bij welke gelegenheid, enzovoort.” or translated in English “Describe the work. Mention for a photo for example what there is to see, when the picture was taken, on which occasion, and so on.” I would appreciate that the last sentence is changed to “Mention for a photo for example where is was taken (country/city) what there is to see, when the picture was taken, on which occasion, and so on.” Wouter (talk) 08:24, 26 January 2015 (UTC)
Ah, so it already makes that assumption. I see. The English version already mentions location as one of the things to include: "Briefly describe everything notable about the work. For a photo, mention the main things that are depicted, the occasion, or the place." (This is MediaWiki:Mwe-upwiz-tooltip-description.) On a related note, it'd be nice if the wizard could be wizardy enough to give different advice for different types of files. An SVG is not going to be a photo.

The Upload Wizard is pretty much in a perpetual state of brokenness. It isn't broken for everyone all the time, but I don't recall a time since it was introduced that we went more than a few days without people reporting enigmatic problems with indefinitely spinning wheels, unhelpful error messages, or simply no way to move forward. Testing before deploying changes seems to be unheard of. Have you tried Commons:Upload? It tends to be much more reliable. LX (talk, contribs) 14:42, 4 February 2015 (UTC)
