Very Good

Suggestion: Notify user of blocked IP before the upload process starts, not when it completes[edit]

I uploaded a video file using the Upload Wizard, chose a license, came up with a descriptive file name, wrote a description in two languages, dated the file, and added proper categories, only for the upload to be rejected and all the this work go to waste because users behind a proxy service apparently can't upload files. I had to disconnect from the VPN and completely reupload the file (which was a PITA since it was a video file) and rewrite and re-apply all the metadata since none of that was saved either.

If it wasn't a cat video I wouldn't have bothered reuploading and rewriting everything.

Just a suggestion: you might want to let the user know they can't save their upload if they're behind a proxy service before they've spent 15 minutes uploading and looking for categories. The current approach results in waste of bandwidth and a waste of time. -- (talk) 21:08, 14 July 2015 (UTC) Thanks for reporting.

Upload Wikimania 2015 impressions[edit]

When I upload files from my iPhone is says it looks like I got them from another website. After I gave them a more meaningful name, it left a red square around them and did not give me any more errors, but also does not let me submit or move on.

"Assistant to upload files": Description Language (description) set of images by default to the current (login) language of the user (not always "English")[edit]

Assistant to upload files always chooses English as description language - - Assistent zum Hochladen von Dateien wählt immer Englisch als Beschreibungssprache

Translation by Google Translate: In my view it would be very useful if the default language for the description (description) of images of language would correspond to that currently used by the user. Nothing is always "English" pre-selected, so I have to change the description language for each image.

This may be very useful in terms of our basic language, but I myself was only an English hotel description, if I want to also address an English audience, which is very rarely the case.

Besides praise: The new "wizard to upload files" is better (file preview now works with more than three pictures) and beautiful.

Here the German original: "Assistent zum Hochladen von Dateien": Beschreibungssprache (description) von Bildern defaultmäßig auf die aktuelle (Anmelde-) Sprache des Users einstellen (nicht grundsätzlich "Englisch")

Aus meiner Sicht wäre es sehr sinnvoll, wenn die Default-Sprache für die Beschreibung (description) von Bildern der Sprache entsprechen würde, die der User aktuell verwendet. Im Moment ist immer "Englisch" vorausgewählt, so dass ich die Beschreibungssprache für jedes Bild ändern muss.

Dies mag im Sinne unserer Basissprache sehr sinnvoll sein, ich selbst gebe aber nur eine englische Beschreibung ein, wenn ich auch ein englischsprachiges Publikum adressieren möchte, was sehr selten der Fall ist.

Nebenbei ein Lob: Der neue "Assistent zum Hochladen von Dateien" ist besser (Dateivorschau funktioniert jetzt auch bei mehr als drei Bildern) und schöner.

sorry - I forgot: --Molgreen (talk) 14:05, 24 July 2015 (UTC)

Le titre initial était incorrect[edit]

J'y avais ajouté un pense bête pour reconnaitre le fichier que je voulais charger. Je pensais que le logiciel me demanderait pas la suite le titre sous lequel il fallait le publier. D'autre part figure dans le titre un point (après le chiffre 6, c'est la façon allemande d'écrire 6ème). Est-il incorrect de mettre un point dans le titre? Dans le 2° fichier chargé ne figure plus le pense-bête.

Fails on Release Rights[edit]

I frequently experience the Upload Wizard failing at the "Release Rights" stage. After the first (Upload) stage completes and I go to the next (Release Rights) stage the image thumbnails are displayed but the text below with the "This file is my own work" check-box etc. does not display. Sometimes even when it does display properly and I click the check-box the page hangs when I click Next. Either way this means I can not proceed further. This means I have to go back to the beginning and start uploading the files ae gain. Usually it works on the next attempt - but not always. When I encounter this problem I sometimes find that the handles for the files I was trying to upload still remain locked in Windows (seems the upload wizard has not released them). Christopher Fynn (talk)) 17:08, 2 August 2015 (UTC)

unable to proceed after similar file name[edit]

When I have uploaded a file and about to finish the process, the error message states that there is already file with the same name. Wiki must permit user to change the name and continue the process. At present, the entire process is terminated. User has to begin afresh. This is not right.

"Another reason not mentioned above"[edit]

This phrasing is, of course, completely correct, but it sounds very off-putting when a newbie reads it, like saying "I dare you to choose this seemingly vague option which will probably get you in trouble somehow", which is not at all what it means. Could we rephrase it as something like, "One of the many other legitimate reasons" (the "not mentioned above" is redundant anyway, and the proposed rephrasing doesn't make it sound like you will screw yourself by selecting it). Please consider the request. I mean it wholeheartedly. Thanks!

KDS4444 (talk) 03:20, 4 August 2015 (UTC)

So... No takers, I guess. Did anyone even read this suggestion? Any thoughts or comments? KDS4444 (talk) 22:17, 4 September 2015 (UTC)
I agree that "not mentioned above" is redundant and could be omitted, but I disagree that the current wording is off-putting. "Another reason" is perfectly neutral. There is no reason to assert that the other reasons are "many" (how many is many, and according to whom?) or to point out that the only reasons we accept are legitimate reasons.

Uploading an SVG file results in a warning about not being able to create a thumbnail[edit]

When I upload an SVG file, the wizard cannot immediately create a thumbnail and complains about it. I did check my SVG file at the wmftools site, and it generated no warnings there. Indeed, when I proceeded and saved the image (after a lot of futile attempts to make the warning go away), this server had no problems rendering the SVG to PNGs of various sizes. --ChPietsch (talk) 13:27, 5 August 2015 (UTC)

Cсылки на переведенные (русскоязычные) лицензии[edit]

Во время работы с "мастером загрузки" на русском, когда доходишь до вкладки "Авторские права", ссылка на лицензию Creative Commons Attribution ShareAlike 4.0 ведет на переведенную (русскоязычную) страницу. Однако если мы нажмем на "Воспользуйтесь другой лицензией", то в раскрывшихся вариантах, все ссылки ведут на английские версии. Например ссылка лицензии Creative Commons Attribution ShareAlike 3.0 ведет на англоязычный текст лицензии в то время как есть переведенная страница Прошу заменить все ссылки на русскоязычные лицензии (сделал бы это сам если мог, но нет доступа к редактированию). Прошу прощения что пишу на русском, английский знаю плохо, а машинный перевод думаю не верно донесет мою мысль. Volovik Vitaly (talk) 04:59, 7 August 2015 (UTC)

Links to translations (Russian-speaking) license[edit]

While working with "master boot" in Russian, when it comes to the tab "copyright", a reference to the license Creative Commons Attribution ShareAlike 4.0 leads translated at the (Russian) page. However, if we click on the "Use a different license", then the pop versions, all references are to the English version. For example reference license Creative Commons Attribution ShareAlike 3.0 leads to the English-language text of the license while there is a translated page Please replace all references to the Russian-speaking license (I would have done it myself if I could, but do not have access to editing). --Volovik Vitaly (talk) 15:47, 21 September 2015 (UTC)


If i upload files "Filename 0001.jpg", "Filename 0002.jpg", "Filename 0003.jpg"..... and then when i get to the next step, to fill in description and categories and stuff the files are not sorted. It would be logical to have "Filename 0001.jpg" first and then "Filename 0002.jpg" underneath and so on. It makes it so much easier for me to add descriptions in chronological order. Can this be fixed or can i sort it in some way? What makes it come up "in the wrong order"? /Hangsna (talk) 10:23, 7 August 2015 (UTC)

error in file name - please provide exact reason and allow to reupload[edit]

Hi, I got an error in filename Parkhotel Schönbrunn‎ - entrance , no idea why, it was just refused. I suspect, there was a non-printable character inside the name (?) or it was just the space at first position in my first try. Nevertheless. Please give a hint, what character is not allowed. Otherwise it is difficult to find. And, please, allow to change the name and reupload. At the moment the process terminates with Das Hochladen aller Dateien ist fehlgeschlagen. (in the German version). This is ugly as I have entered all that lengthy descriptions already at this step in the process. --Herzi Pinki (talk) 22:34, 12 August 2015 (UTC)

Very frustrating[edit]

Not sure if this form is still in beta, but I tried three times to upload something and it failed. One time the upload just failed because my description was not good enough, but instead of letting me correct it, I had to do everything all over again. On the third try, when I uploaded everything correctly, on the final step it failed with an unknown error.

to change the title of the file during uploading[edit]

Hi, when we have to change the title of the file "during uploading", the button "next" disappear, and we have to re-launch the upload. When the file make longer to upload because of video file that convert with firefogg during uppload, upload can take many time. And re-done the upload is sometimes discouraging.

If you don't understand me, perhaps this video will help:

(why change the title? because often the title is already taken for another file)

Yann Non, le problème est que lors de l'import, si on a donné un titre au fichier qui est déjà pris. L'import se stop. On peut changer le titre, mais on n'a plus le bouton suivant, et on doit recommencer un nouvel import.
Quand les fichiers sont longs à importer, genre vidéo mp4 avec conversion firefogg et que ça dure 10 min ça fout un peu les boules. Et ça m'est arrivé de laisser tomber.
Tu parle de renommage, mais c'est la "phase d'après" une fois que la vidéo est importée.
Moi je parles que l'import est stoppé et ne se fait pas, il n'y a pas de possibilité de renommage avec ton modèle puisque le fichier n'a pas été importé. (On ne peut pas importer un fichier avec le même nom qu'un autre)
Ok pour l'anglais.

D'ailleurs ce n'estpas au tout début, c'est après les 10 minutes de téléchargement. On choisit un titre, et on se rend compte qu'il est déjà pris.

Yann mozilla firefox 40.0.3 et windows vista. La vidéo n'est pas d'aujourd'hui. Et aujourd'hui, je viens de tester et ça fonctionne effectivement, j'ai le bouton suivant.

Uploading several files - unique file name?[edit]

1.) I just tried to upload several SVG files. The Upload "Wizard" tells me, that there is already a file with this name on Commons. That is NOT right. There is however a file with a different extension (.PNG instead of .SVG). I have this problem already since months! Please correct this error! Thanks. 2.) After correcting the file name to something unique, I cannot retry my uploads, as there is no more button to click. All I can do now, is start the whole procedure from the beginning! Would be nice, if this could be fixed, too. Thanks.

Chunked upload crash[edit]

I am trying to upload a 587 MB video file by means of chunked upload. I am using both chrome and firefox 40.0.3.

Upload from the Internet[edit]

The current means to upload a file is only from a user's system. If the user finds a file in the public domain on the Internet, they have to download the files onto their computer and then upload it to commons. Can't there be an online uploader as well?

Vatadoshu (talk) 21:37, 16 September 2015 (UTC)

After a quick attempt at reproducing this with a file that isn't an MP4, I'm going to take a wild guess that you're using Firefogg to transcode videos on the fly, and that Firefogg is choking on the accents, not UploadWizard. If you could try updating Firefogg and filing a bug with them, I'd appreciate it. If they can't help, feel free to file a bug in UploadWizard at Phabricator. --MarkTraceur (talk) 15:01, 17 September 2015 (UTC)
MarkTraceur thanks for your response, ok if it is firefogg. Last update of firefogg was 25 august 2015.

No, i will not create a phabricator task, i don't know how to do.

I had everything done up to the very last "publish" stage, at which point I encountered the "You must be logged in to save files in the upload stash." failure message for my first three files in the stash, and then nothing (except the "Remove" option) for the other 47 files. Like I said, everything is in the system (the files, descriptions, categories, geocodes, etc.), so this should simply be a case of verifying that I'm logged in (which I am again now). Considering that, due to my slow upload speeds and thorough approach to describing uploads, I've invested almost four hours in this batch of 50 files, I really, really don't want to lose my work. All of the files are photos of the University of North Texas campus, with the first in the stash being File:University_of_North_Texas_September_2015_01_(Maple_Street_Hall).jpg and the last being File:University_of_North_Texas_September_2015_50_(Apogee_Stadium).jpg. I will be deeply grateful to anyone who can successfully retrieve for me everything I've entered into UploadWizard and/or complete the final publication step of the upload for me.

@Michael Barera: It seems that this board is not really monitored by the people who could help you with this. Actually, I'm not quite sure who could to this. Maybe the Administrators' noticeboard or the Commons IRC-channel would have been a better place to get help. However, it may already be too late by now, as uploads get flushed from the stash after a while :-/
I've filed a bug report, but you might want to have a look at alternative upload methods as well (Vicuna would be my personal recommendation). --El Grafo (talk) 14:07, 18 September 2015 (UTC)
Thanks so much, El Grafo. I've now accepted that I'll probably have to re-upload everything, but I'll also take your suggestion and post at the administrators' noticeboard as well, just in case there is something that can be done. I really do appreciate you filing a bug report; this was not a fun technical problem to deal with, and it would be great if a solution could be found and implemented. Thanks again, and all the best!

Liebe Redaktion,

bei dem Punkt "Erstellungsdatum" fehlt in der Erklärung ("?") ein Komma ("Das Datum, an dem...").

Copying information into several files uploaded at the same time[edit]

Titles of photos should be fairly explicit and they have been given before the upload. If you upload multiple photos and want to copy When information, such as the geographical coordinates into the other photo files you have to DESELECT the automatique numeration of the files. If you forget to do this it wreaks havoc with the file names that you wanted to use.

Looking at the files names in lots of different categories, it is rather rare to find files with a common name, but numbered consecutively. Would it not be better to have this option DESELECTED, like the date and geographic coordinates ? William Ellison (talk) 15:57, 26 September 2015 (UTC)

Alle Daten mehrfach eingeben nervt[edit]

Unten auf der Seite gibt es die Möglichkeit, "weitere Dateien zu diesem Objekt" hochzuladen. Aber man muss alle Daten wieder von vorne eingeben! Wenn es sich um 3 Fotos des selben Objekts handelt, also 3 x alle Daten eintippen. Es müsste doch technisch so lösbar sein, dass die Daten vom 1. Foto gespeichert sind und man nur die Beschreibung an das neue Foto anpassen muss. So wie es jetzt ist, verliere ich die Lust, mehrere Fotos von einem Objekt hochzuladen!

upload wizard marche plus[edit]

Depuis 30 minutes j'ai upload wizard qui ne marche plus. j'ai redémarré l'ordinateur, mais ça ne fonctionne toujours pas. J'ai essayé l'import d'une image png et l'import d'un fichier mp4. Je retenterai un autre jour... Vatadoshu (talk) 13:51, 30 September 2015 (UTC)

ça fonctionne sous chrome mais toujours pas sous firefox. Pour moi c'est réglé, j'ai importé sous google chrome. Vatadoshu (talk) 09:27, 1 October 2015 (UTC)

Allow user-deletion, or add a 'Proceed with Upload' button at the end.[edit]

Please, please either give the user the final choice whether or not to upload the image at the end of the process, OR allow a quick delete during a cooling-off period of at least a few hours. I could not understand the very convoluted deletion request process, and I realised, too late, that I had uploaded the wrong image containing the wrong copyrighted data. It will take me a while to create the correct version, so deletion - or halting the upload process BEFORE THE END - would have been immensely useful and sensible.Parkywiki (talk) 22:49, 30 September 2015 (UTC)

@Parkywiki: Being able to delete your own uploads yourself could be handy sometimes, but I don't think that'll happen any time soon due to the way user right are implemented in MediaWiki. I agree that not having the option to cancel an upload is totally stupid – there's already a bug report for this. However, as long as you haven't reached the "Use" step yet, you can – as far as I know – simply close your Browser tab/window and everything you've entered/uploaded so far will be discarded. --El Grafo (talk) 08:48, 2 October 2015 (UTC)
Thanks, El Grafo. Let's hope someone sees common sense in due course. It's akin to having to commit to buying an item online before being able to read the full description and deciding whether it's really the right thing to purchase after all. I hadn't realised I could quit the browser and lose the image, though I had considered deleting all the licencing data, thus rendering it unacceptable for use. I've now replaced my image with the correct version with no risk of copyright ifringement - all I need to do know is learn how to request permanent deletion of the old image which may not have met WikiMedia's standards.Parkywiki (talk) 22:35, 3 October 2015 (UTC)
