Where to leave your feedback about the Upload Wizard

This page formerly was a place to share issues you encountered when using the Upload Wizard interface. Since the feedback has died down after the early phases of development, this page has been retired. It is not frequented by developers any longer. There are, however, other places where you can report issues and get help:

Apart from that, Commons:Upload Wizard carries summary information and Commons:Upload Wizard FAQ tries to answer some of the most frequently asked questions about Upload Wizard.

Error when uploading[edit]

When I click on the big blue button to upload an image, I will choose the image, and I immediately get the following message: "There was an error in your submission You are already uploading the file "1955 Dodge La Femme Makeup Compact.jpeg". Nonetheless, the image IS uploaded. with no further steps. This happens every time. I am using a Mac with the newest OS and Safari browser.

@DodgeLaFemme Thanks for reporting, I have added that to the bugtracker at phab:T290397. El Grafo (talk) 15:46, 11 January 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Exif seconds truncated[edit]

We can click to see all kinds of extended metadata, but for some reason we are not allowed to see what seconds were in the EXIF, only minutes! Jidanni (talk) 09:34, 10 January 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply] Jidanni (talk) 07:26, 12 January 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Small print says don't enter things here[edit]

In big letters above we are told to enter feedback.

Only in the smaller letters do we learn the page is inactive. Jidanni (talk) 09:36, 10 January 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]

@Jidanni Yeah, that sucks. Better now? --El Grafo (talk) 13:41, 11 January 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]
Why not protect the page? PseudoSkull (talk) 20:41, 2 February 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]

If this "formerly was a place to share issues" then why does the upload wizard send me here?[edit]

If this "formerly was a place to share issues" then why does the upload wizard send me here? I am frustrated already because I spent quite some time getting categories, descriptions etc. right, then I get silly error messages so I may have to do it all over again! Alex P.

I am sorry that happens to you. Unfortunately the people who should be reading this page aren't reading it, and haven't changed the setting of the wizard to point you elsewhere. I doubt there is some better place; the problem is that those who should read the feedback aren't interested in reading and acting on it. I suppose the page was created for a project that has ended and nobody else has been assigned to take care of the feedback. It seems the wizard is still developed, so somebody should figure out who is responsible for getting this straight. –LPfi (talk) 18:45, 7 February 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]
There is a Commons talk:Upload Wizard which has no current discussions but maybe someone useful is watching it. Jim.henderson (talk) 15:40, 8 February 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]
