Spanish Translation[edit]

There some missing translations of the Upload Wizard to Spanish. Maybe I can help, but don't found the translation page.--Jduranboger (talk) 20:34, 30 January 2024 (UTC)[reply]

@Jduranboger Hello, to translate the missing messages of UploadWizard, please go to TranslateWiki.

Upload Wizard not working for files from Flickr[edit]

For about 18 hours or so, Upload Wizard has not been working for files from Flickr. It starts taking the information fine, but when "publish" is pressed, it just goes into a holding pattern as if it's processing but it never uploads (I tried letting one run for more than half an hour to see if it was just very slow, but still no results.) I've tried on 2 different machines, and I note another user noted being unable to upload from Flickr on Commons:Village pump/Technical. -- Infrogmation of New Orleans (talk) 18:03, 22 February 2024 (UTC)[reply]

The same thing is happening to me. -- Pedroperezhumberto (talk) 19:05, 22 February 2024 (UTC)[reply]
I see I'm not the first person to have this problem...
Category:Statue of Queen Victoria, Geelong is thus empty. What I intended to upload is this file. Schwede66 23:40, 22 February 2024 (UTC)[reply]
This has also been raised at Commons:Village pump#The way to upload images via Flickr is completely broken with the claim that all methods of uploading images through Flickr have been completely damaged.
Commons:Flickr2Commons and Commons:Flickypedia both seem fine now, if they were ever broken, but the Upload Wizard is still hanging on Flickr uploads today. Belbury (talk) 18:43, 23 February 2024 (UTC)[reply]
Oh thank you, I'm not alone on this - I've had to go back and forth setting my own Flickr posts onto CC-BY-SA and back to 'All Rights Reserved' because of this since last night. For me on the regular Flickr2Commons, it is hanging for me on "Submitting details". I get it would be easier to just upload the raw files on my hard drive instead of from Flickr, but... I don't know, I feel it wouldn't be right in some way. Hullian111 (talk) 17:05, 25 February 2024 (UTC)[reply]

OFL template not recognized as correct license by UploadWizard[edit]

The UploadWizard does not recognize the OFL license template as proper license beginning from today --PantheraLeo1359531 😺 (talk) 10:17, 10 March 2024 (UTC)[reply]

Thank you, the problem is resolved :) --PantheraLeo1359531 😺 (talk) 18:39, 13 March 2024 (UTC)[reply]

Feedback needed on proposed changes to Describe step[edit]

Hi all! As part of our work on improving UploadWizard, we are now collecting feedback on some proposed changes to its "Describe" step. Please, feel free to join our discussion in our project talk page, and share your feedback. We are looking for your opinion to improve further our suggested changes. Thanks in advance to those who will participate! Sannita (WMF) (talk) 11:16, 12 March 2024 (UTC)[reply]

Specify the same descriptions for all files and publish immediately[edit]

Hi, could a setting be added in the description section where a description only needs to be entered for one file, this description is then copied to all uploaded files and the files are published immediately? This would speed up the uploading of multiple files if you don't need to create individual descriptions for each file. With 500 uploaded files at once, you always have to scroll down the entire list of files with input masks to reach the "Publish" button, which takes several minutes until all the input fields for each file are displayed and rendered.

Similar to this is the function "Specify the same information for all files" in the "Select license" step.

Perhaps a button could be added directly under the section "Copy information for all following files to be uploaded..." in the "Describe" step to add a button for publication.

Thank you and best regards --PantheraLeo1359531 😺 (talk) 13:43, 14 March 2024 (UTC)[reply]

Release rights resetted for every upload[edit]

Since I can recall and up until not long ago, as long as I didn't close the browser window, the Upload Wizard would remember my release rights choices between every file batch (set the release rights while uploading the first files -> "upload more files" -> the UW would keep as default the choice I made during the first upload, unless I specifically chose to change it). Now it doesn't anymore. Is it just my browser or was this actually changed? Can we change it back? Because that's a bit annoying when you are uploading lots of files in different batches... Syrio posso aiutare? 17:42, 16 March 2024 (UTC)[reply]

Hey @Syrio, thanks for noticing. I opened a Phabricator ticket about this problem, will try to let you know as soon as possible. Sannita (WMF) (talk) 10:48, 20 March 2024 (UTC)[reply]
Great, thanks! -- Syrio posso aiutare? 11:01, 20 March 2024 (UTC)[reply]

I am really not understanding why the upload page displays the afterActive template instead of whileActive template. I checked the dates supplied in the campaign are right. It starts on 26 March and ends on 28 March. beforeActive template was rightly falling back when I checked yesterday. What could be the possible issue? TheAafi (DCW) (talk) 08:25, 26 March 2024 (UTC)[reply]

@Romaine, your help is required. TheAafi (DCW) (talk) 18:23, 26 March 2024 (UTC)[reply]
The Template:Heritage Lens whileActive is shown during the campaign, the template says the campaign has ended. So he problem is in this template and not the campaign. Romaine (talk) 18:28, 26 March 2024 (UTC)[reply]
Thank you. I fixed it. There appeared a slight error in timer. TheAafi (DCW) (talk) 10:37, 27 March 2024 (UTC)[reply]

Upload Wizard delay[edit]

I am uploading 9 photos at once. I clicked "Publish files" and nothing happens. It doesn't say it's uploading or anything so how do I know if it is at all? Does it take a while? I would've expected it to say "Uploading..." or something along those lines so am unsure if there's any progress at all. JaumeBG (talk) 22:07, 31 March 2024 (UTC)[reply]

All sorted in the end. Have uploaded the photos via the phone app instead. Thanks. JaumeBG (talk) 23:35, 31 March 2024 (UTC)[reply]
