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!

This is very frustrating and nothing goes as planned. I have clicked on Upload and selected a file. The circular image keeps revolving and never stops. After a couple of minutes when I click on upload another file it just keeps revolving and I cannot select any file.

Жахливо незручна форма[edit]

Я був змушений почати завантажувати файли на вікісховище виключно через активність деяких інших користувачів, які активно перезаливають файли з нашої рідної вікіпедії до Вікісховища, завдяки чому я втрачаю змогу спостерігати за знайденими і завантаженими мною файлами. Отже, чому "жахливо незручна". Тому що вона була розроблена або людьми, які щиро ненавидять редакторів і хотіли з нас позбиткуватися, або розроблена суто для людей, яким подобаються нефункціональні візуальні інтерфейси. Це просто неймовірно наскільки лайняно виконаний функціонал, що забезпечує єдину важливу роль вікісховища - завантаження сюди файлів. Покидьків, які були відповідальні за її розробку і впровадження необхідно негайно звільнити з найгіршими рекомендаціями. Дякую за увагу.

Everything got deleted! "Stashed files not found"[edit]

I uploaded about 20 files, but to add all the explanations and geocoordinates took me a few days. Although the internet connection let me select Categories for the images, when I finally "submitted" everything, it just deleted EVERYTHING, saying "The stashed file was not found when attempting to upload it from the stash." Despite that the images were all right there on the page! Quite frustrating to lost 3 days worth of effort. Is there a way to maintain uploads, since the current (oddly organized) format is "1. Learn, 2. Upload, 3. Release Rights, 4. Describe, 5. Use"? If "Upload" has been completed, there's zero good reason that "Describe" should be such a data-loss hindrance!

Bush6984 (talk) 00:11, 8 July 2015 (UTC)

@Bush6984: Hi, There is no deleted file uploaded by Bush6984. Di you upload them with another account? Regards, Yann (talk) 08:12, 8 July 2015 (UTC)
I don't think they were deleted by an administrator. Based on the description above, it sounds like the upload process spanned several days in this case. By default, temporary files from incomplete uploads are deleted after six hours. LX (talk, contribs) 13:43, 8 July 2015 (UTC)
It is excellent that you put so much effort in the explanations, geocoordinates and categories. What I suggest is to make a text document with all the descriptions for each file, geocoordinates and to find out which categories are most suitable and copy/paste the names of those categories in the text document. Uploading goes then much faster because now is it just copy/paste of the pieces of text required. Wouter (talk) 17:34, 8 July 2015 (UTC)
Ahhh, good idea Wouter, thanks for the suggestion. And I never thought an administrator deleted them, LX; I hadn't realized that 6 hours was the time-out expiration. I was thinking that, based on how the submission process is organized, that after the "Upload" step (and after "Release Rights" step), that the images were already saved, and the "Describe" step only served to tack on additional metadata to the files, for better understanding and classification/organization. I appreciate you explaining that 6-hour time-out period, LX, as well as the uplifting encouragement ("excellent that you put so much effort...") Wouter. Thank you guys all for your help and guidance in this matter. As frustrating as it is that it happened, I guess I learned more about how the system works and what to do differently next time to avoid similar data losses.

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.

"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.

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.
