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]

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)

Mini-bilder syns ej![edit]

Mini-bilder syns inte i uppladdningsguiden längre.

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?!?

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.

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.
