Problems when uploading multiple images[edit]

(Copied from the Help Desk.) I just uploaded 33 pictures I had taken at a French Cabaret Show in Helsinki, Finland in last December, after getting permission from the casino staff. Since there were so many, I used UploadWizard instead of the old upload form I normally use. UploadWizard failed to show me a thumbnail of any of the pictures, so I added the descriptions and categories going by the order they appeared in on the directory where I uploaded them from. However, UploadWizard didn't upload them in this order, causing most of the descriptions and categories to go all wrong. I had to fix them by hand. Why didn't UploadWizard upload the images in the order they appeared in when I selected them? Why couldn't UploadWizard show me thumbnails? The pictures themselves seem to have uploaded OK. And if this happens, is there any easier way to solve it than what I did now? JIP (talk) 19:49, 19 March 2015 (UTC)

I have the same problem. I need to upload 30 images at once, and I need them sorted from the first to the last one. The wizard seems to sort them randomly, maybe depending on which one gets uploaded faster than the others. This problem did not exist some months ago. It was working fine. Can someone help?--Jordiferrer (talk) 12:25, 9 April 2015 (UTC)

Bug in the upload wiazrd form[edit]

Hi there,

During the “Describe” step, if the “next” button is clicked while having entered a title with an incorrect character, such as the slash “/” character, then the “next” button will then disappear from the form, forcing me to restart the upload from the beginning.

Kind regards, Christopher.

Error during final phase of upload[edit]

Hello, After uploading 7 files of a commune in France (Nohanent, Puy-de-Dôme), 2 of 7 files have been uploaded successfully (File:Nohanent_église_2015-04-10.JPG and File:Entrée_Nohanent_par_D_764_depuis_Sayat_2015-04-10.JPG) but 3 not with a warning sign (File:Nohanent_entrée_par_D_2E_2015-04-10.JPG, File:Arrêt_de_bus_Place_de_la_Farge_2015-04-10.JPG, and File:Route_de_Nohanent_à_Clermont-Ferrand_2015-04-10.JPG): api-error-internal_api_error_DBQueryError. Details of these 2 files (File:Nohanent_Place_de_la_Farge_2015-04-10.JPG and File:Route_de_Nohanent_vers_Sayat_et_Blanzat_2015-04-10.JPG) could not be submitted. So I should have to re-upload last two files. tabltrai - talk 13:55, 11 April 2015 (UTC)

Hallo G. v. Luchs, ohne weitere Details zu kennen: Sehr wahrscheinlich nein.

Wieso wurde die Datei denn überhaupt gelöscht???[edit]

Lizenzen, Erlaubnis, Urheber... alles war geklärt! Warum werden hier einfach Bilder gelöscht? Ich wurde "gewarnt". Ja, aber ich habe die Erlaubnis und dies auch Wikipedia bzw. Wikimedia mitgeteilt! Unverzöglich! Da lagen zwei Minuten zwischen. Dann war ich nicht mehr am PC. Komme nach Hause und das Bild ist weg. Was soll das? Will mich hier jemand verarschen!? Sorry Leute. Da fehlt mir jegliches Verständnis.

Problem when my login is thrown off[edit]

I have experienced the following problem several times. If I am using the Upload Wizard to upload some images, Wikimedia sometimes automatically throws me off my login without telling me. If I then, without knowing that I've been thrown off, try to complete the upload, the wizard just returns an error message saying "You must be logged in to save files in the upload stash.". Yes, of course, I know that, but I WAS logged on, you just threw me off automatically without telling me. What's really annoying is that the wizard doesn't allow me to fix the problem by logging on and then attempting another upload of the same images I've already prepared for upload. Instead, I have to go to another page, logon, and then start the wizard procedure all over again from scratch. This is just not good enough - definitely a bug that needs to be fixed, and asap.

Photo Upload Licence[edit]

How do I indicate a non-existent licence for an old photo that belongs to my family?

Jetrev27 (talk) 06:30, 27 May 2015 (UTC)

Hi Jetrev27, first of all it doesn't really matter who owns the physical photographs. The important question is: who owns the copyright? – which usually translates to: who took the photograph? If it was taken by a now deceased family member and you are the only heir (or all other potential heirs have agreed), {{PD-heirs}} may be the way to go. I'm not sure if the UploadWizard offers this as a license option, though. In that case, you may need to upload it with a different license and change that to {{PD-heirs}} immediately afterwards. In any case, please provide as much information about photo as possible (who took it when and where? if it was published before: when and where was it published first?). Hope that helps a bit? --El Grafo (talk) 08:17, 27 May 2015 (UTC)

Not working[edit]

If the form gets a error that the file name already exists, the submit button disapears for ever and there is NO way to get i back - so you have to start all over again!
