Alternatives to Template:Information

Hi all, as a Wikipedian-in-Residence, uploading images from a GLAM (project pages) very few of our images conform to the standard information template. It would be great if we could use alternatives such as Template:Artwork for the fine art collections and Template:Specimen for the natural history collections. I notice that this issue was logged back in 2010 and 2012. I have found the customised Upload Wizard for the WikiArS projects but cannot find a simpler one as suggested by Peter_Weis. Am I just having a search-skills failure? Is it possible to create such tools? (By the way, I know about the Mass-upload tool and will be using it soon - but it is not suitable for volunteers/curators who are learning to make simple uploads). Thanks! I hope this would be useful for the whole GLAMwiki initiative PatHadley (talk) 11:33, 23 January 2014 (UTC)

+1 It should be presented in a way that no explanations are needed.--Barbara Fischer (WMDE) (talk) 17:37, 28 January 2014 (UTC)
Yeah, this has been an enhancement request for ages − see bugzilla:49443. One of the last GSOC was supposed to tackle this (by leveraging on TemplateData) but I am unsure of its current status. @MarkTraceur: :-). Jean-Fred (talk) 17:52, 28 January 2014 (UTC)
Are there people interested in this if it could be tackled in the Zürich hackathon? Are there proposals in GSoC? What is the hub for this discussion? --Susannaanas (talk) 06:31, 2 April 2014 (UTC)

Feature: allow entering the infos during the upload

Foto's gebruiken

Goeienavond, een goed uur geleden heb ik drie foto's van evenzoveel oorlogsmonumenten geüploadet (via de wizard) i.h.k.v. de fotoactie. Tijdens de fase 'Beschrijven' liep de wizard vast en daardoor zijn de foto's niet gekoppeld aan de betreffende monumentenpagina. Hoe kan ik datalsnog doen? vrgr, Eric.

Uutilisation avec le modèle PD-Tunisia

Je n'arrive pas à utiliser l'assistant avec le modèle spécifique PD-Tunisia, car l'assistant me dit que je n'ai pas mis une licence convenable. Cimoi (talk) 14:34, 13 April 2014 (UTC)

Stupid Upload Wizard

For crying out loud, can there please be a "review before actual upload" step, so I can e.g. change the filename? EEng (talk) 14:40, 21 April 2014 (UTC)

Problem with selecting license

Specifically "Another reason not mentioned above". It doesn't seem to want to accept {{PD-USGov-Military-Marine_Corps}} as a valid license. Dainomite (talk) 03:24, 24 April 2014 (UTC)

The Upload Wizard, despite all it's wizardry, is unable to follow redirects. Use the real name of the template, {{PD-USGov-Military-Marines}}, instead. LX (talk, contribs) 05:14, 24 April 2014 (UTC)
Thank ya, next time if it comes around I will indeed. I was wondering why the following templates worked and the Marine Corps one didnt. {{PD-USGov-Military-Air_Force}}, {{PD-USGov-Military-Army}}, {{PD-USGov-Military-Navy}}, {{PD-USGov-Military-Army-USAIOH}} Thanks again, Dainomite (talk) 06:52, 24 April 2014 (UTC)

Wizard stoped

The Upload Wizard is pretty much in a perpetual state of brokenness. Have you tried Commons:Upload? It tends to be much more reliable. LX (talk, contribs) 19:13, 28 April 2014 (UTC)


help me plz MALOOKO(NOGOB) (talk) 13:16, 28 April 2014 (UTC)

What do you need help with? It's going to be very difficult for anyone to help if you don't describe the problem you're having. LX (talk, contribs) 19:11, 28 April 2014 (UTC)
