Bild auf die Seite "Katharina Koschny" hochladen

Vielen Dank für den wunderbaren Assistenten zum Hochladen. Leider scheiter ich am letzten Schritt: Nutzen

Bitte, wie kriege ich das Bild jetz auf die Wikipedia Seite zu Katharina Koschny??

Danke. 22:13, 11 November 2012 (UTC)

Hallo und danke fuer das Bild! sollte das Einbinden im Artikel erklaeren. --Malyacko (talk) 13:11, 12 November 2012 (UTC)
Dennoch scheitern an dieser Stelle so viele, dass man die Nutzung vielleicht wirklich noch ein wenig optimieren könnte, z.B. damit. --Flominator (talk) 20:17, 1 December 2012 (UTC)

Impedimento para recarregar

Estou tentando recarregar um arquivo de imagem e avisa que já foi eliminado. Ora, agora eu estou com a devida autorização do autor, e vou mandar o e-mail com ela. É um absurdo proibir de reenviar a imagem. Dr. Lenaldo Vigo (talk) 18:27, 30 November 2012 (UTC)

Please paste the exact error message here that it shown when you try to reupload here. Thanks! --Malyacko (talk) 12:32, 3 December 2012 (UTC)

galère sur la partie Droits accordés

Which exact page do you refer to? Please paste the entire complete address to see this. Thanks! --Malyacko (talk) 11:43, 5 December 2012 (UTC)


I 2 campi con il codice wiki e html non sono sufficiente per l'utilizzo dell'immagine, perdi più il testo non è selezionabile solo in parte. Spesso l'immagine viene utilizzata solo con il suo nome (ad es. per inserirla in un infobox oppure in una gallery). Mi tocca selezionare tutte le volte in nome del file sotto la miniatura ma spesso selezionando quello si selezionano anche altre parti della pagina. Awd (talk) 08:08, 5 December 2012 (UTC)

Provide HTML5 drag and drop upload interface

As subject says. Mahanga (Talk) 17:19, 5 December 2012 (UTC)

Add a button to cancel upload / leave page.

It's not clear to the user if exiting the browser/going back will cancel and delete the upload on Commons' servers Mahanga (Talk) 17:18, 5 December 2012 (UTC)

True. Could you file an enhancement request in under product "MediaWiki extensions" and component "UploadWizard"? See . Thanks! --Malyacko (talk) 11:39, 6 December 2012 (UTC)

Logo Twitter

Estoy tratando de subir el logo de Twitter, para utilizarlo en Wikipedia. Pero el mismo me dice: Ya existe otro archivo en el sitio con el mismo contenido. Me gustaria que solucionasen el Error. Un Saludo, Gustavo. GustavoMartínRojas (talk) 22:18, 5 December 2012 (UTC)

What exactly is unclear about the error message that the Twitter logo has been already uploaded? What would you expect in such cases? --Malyacko (talk) 11:41, 6 December 2012 (UTC)

Looks like an objection to some content on Spanish Wikipedia. I don't think this has anything to do with Wikimedia Commons or the Upload Wizard. LX (talk, contribs) 14:18, 11 December 2012 (UTC)

Come funziona lo strumento.

Vorrei capire se dopo aver pubblicato le mie foto, esse vengono caricate anche su Wikipedia. Peppe Guida (talk) 01:15, 9 December 2012 (UTC)

Yes, images on Commons can be used on Wikipedia. Please see it:Aiuto:Markup immagini on the Italian Wikipedia. Thank you for your contributions! LX (talk, contribs) 13:40, 11 December 2012 (UTC)

Upload from ipad

Probably asked before, sorry can't find it anywhere.

How do i upload to commons from my ipad1  ? Looks to me it is not possible, or is it?

Thanks (in advance) for answerring my question. Saschaporsche (talk) 05:51, 9 December 2012 (UTC)

It is not possible to upload files from iOS versions of the Safari web browser prior to iOS 6. If you try to access the Upload Wizard using a browser that is not capable of uploading files, you should be getting an error message that informs you of this, and like the message says, it's a limitation in Apple's software and not something that Commons can affect. The limitation applies to all websites and not just to Wikimedia Commons. LX (talk, contribs) 13:29, 11 December 2012 (UTC)

upload two images with the same name

I uploaded two images with the same name (title, not filename) and now i have messed things up:

Have a look at this image and it's file history:

I also can not upload the other image because 'it already exists'...

Allow renaming

The old form allowed telling Wikimedia Commons to use a different name (which in this case I was relying on). The new one requires the uploader rename it on their own machine first. Superm401 - Talk 05:57, 2 December 2012 (UTC)

Actually, this is apparently intended to work later (Describe screen), but I get "None of the uploads were successful". I had to use the old form. Superm401 - Talk 06:11, 2 December 2012 (UTC)
How many files did you try to upload? How big were the files? --Malyacko (talk) 12:33, 3 December 2012 (UTC)
I believe this was just one file, which I ended up doing manually as File:United Nations General Assembly Resolution A6719.pdf. Superm401 - Talk 04:22, 13 December 2012 (UTC)

Uploading the Images of Tibetan Terrier

Just now I tried to upload 2 images but the remaining time span is increasing in stead of decreasing. What is this? Krantmlverma (talk) 07:27, 12 December 2012 (UTC)

Might be a bug in the software. If you can reproduce the problem please feel free to file a bug report in See --Malyacko (talk) 13:02, 13 December 2012 (UTC)

Problem in uploading a file

I am trying to upload a JPG file of Tibetan Terrier (female) but it is appearing on the screen. Please help upload this file. Krantmlverma (talk) 13:04, 12 December 2012 (UTC)

What do you mean by appearing on screen exactly? You need to provide better and exact steps in order to reproduce. --Malyacko (talk) 13:01, 13 December 2012 (UTC)

Upload process

There should be a warning not to use backarrow or to reverse once you have commenced the upload process. I did, and the whole process stalled and failed. Kaarenmax (talk) 02:55, 13 December 2012 (UTC)

Might be worth filing an enhancement request on under product "MediaWiki extensions" and component "UploadWizard". See --Malyacko (talk) 13:06, 13 December 2012 (UTC)

Redirects with templates don't work

When uploading File:Reset password en wikipedia proposal only email.png, I tried to enter {{Wikipedia screenshot}} using the manual wikitext option ("Another reason not mentioned above"). The UploadWizard wikitext preview worked fine, but it would not submit (it gives "This does not seem to be valid wikitext, or does not contain a license."). When I changed it to {{Wikipedia-screenshot}}, it worked, indicating the problem is probably redirection-related. Superm401 - Talk 04:16, 13 December 2012 (UTC)

Might be worth filing a bug report on under product "MediaWiki extensions" and component "UploadWizard" with good steps to reproduce. See --Malyacko (talk) 13:07, 13 December 2012 (UTC)

Help messages do not help

I accidentally tried to upload a file with a : in it. I was told there were "undesirable characters", without any mention of which characters were undesirable, nor any way to fix it. I ended up having to have all the files moved. Adam Cuerden (talk) 21:28, 18 December 2012 (UTC)

I keep getting errors with titles etc. and I can't fix it. I wind up having to download a second time. This has happened almost everytime I have tried to download photo's. What is wrong? tim

Impossible to tell if you don't tell us the exact errors with titles etc. --Malyacko (talk) 11:44, 20 December 2012 (UTC)

Public domain

On the "release rights" page, "Another reason not mentioned above" should allow pd-self and pd-user tags. I was attempting to upload a derivative work created by another user who tagged their work as pd-self; I may be incorrect, but I believe tagging it as CC-0 would not be acceptable under the circumstances. In any event, the wizard should allow you to override and upload anyway (with appropriate "Warning: this might cause your images to be deleted if you're not careful to put the right tag on!" messages) for cases like this where an acceptable tag is not recognized instead of making the upload process come to a dead stop and forcing you to go back add the right tags after upload (which is pointless considering the upload wizard could be doing this for you if it were slightly less stupid about the tags). —Scott5114 [EXACT CHANGE ONLY] 05:03, 20 December 2012 (UTC)

How do I cancel?

I don't see where I can abort the upload, once I'm in the form sequence. Jwhitener (talk) 15:29, 17 December 2012 (UTC)

You could always just click out of the page, but if you wanted to cancel only some uploads out of multiple total, I see what you mean. There should be an "X" button for each upload that one could press to cancel that upload. Jsayre64 (talk) 16:28, 28 December 2012 (UTC)
