Upload wizard not working[edit]

Just a minute ago, tried to upload 3 pictures (jpg, ca. 3 MB each). Upload wizard not working. Reported here yesterday. Some other people same problem see here Bert76 (talk) 14:48, 13 December 2019 (UTC)

have the same problem and Unbekannter Fehler: „$1“. its, what wizard told me. --Donna Gedenk (talk) 08:25, 14 December 2019 (UTC)
+1: "Unknown error: "$1". I try (and fail) to upload 4 25MB gif-files (big but not above any limit). Several attempts during the last 12 hours. Smaller files seem to work. --Jahobr (talk) 11:54, 14 December 2019 (UTC)
i have the prob with small files too. --Donna Gedenk (talk) 12:13, 14 December 2019 (UTC)
For the last few weeks, about two thirds of my uploads complete. Sometimes all arrive, and occasionally none. Usually a second attempt succeeds; sometimes not. I see no pattern. Jim.henderson (talk) 01:49, 17 December 2019 (UTC)

This seems to be Issue T241330 : UploadWizard in Firefox fails uploading multiple images in the issue tracker. Philh-591 (talk) 17:31, 9 February 2020 (UTC)

Publishing was not possible[edit]

I wanted to upload a picture, but missed declaring a category. I then got the info whether to correct that. I wanted to, but it was not possible as the entire page with category etc. was not displayed - the page was just empty. Even going back twice and then trying again did not help. At the end I deleted the pic and will upload it again from scratch. --ProloSozz (talk) 10:53, 14 January 2020 (UTC)


L'interface de Wikipedia est si compliquée que je n'y comprend à peu près rien et je me sens incapable de contribuer pleinement. Je ne sais même pas à qui adresser mes questions ou mes commentaires ou signaler des problèmes (qui n'en sont peut-être pas mais comment savoir ?). Je ne sais même pas si je suis sur la bonne page pour écrire ce qui va suivre. Je me débrouille très mal avec les tutoriels mis sur le site pour nous aider dans nos premiers pas. J'ai l'impression de venir d'une autre planète. Aujourd'hui, je viens de voir sur Wiki Commons un fichier image d'une certaine résolution. J'ai en banque un fichier de ce tableau en plus haute résolution mais je ne sais même pas comment l'introduire dans le Wiki, ni à qui m'adresser pour le faire.

Alors je fais quoi ? Je me déconnecte et j'abandonne l'idée de contribuer à Wikipedia ou bien quelqu'un me fournit un minimum d'aide formulé dans mes langues et mon niveau de compréhension : français et anglais standard comme on les apprenait à l'école il y a cinquante ans. — Preceding unsigned comment added by Chod2020 (talk • contribs) 21:54, 30 January 2020 (UTC)

Public Domain Mark[edit]

So our guidance is that Flickr's Public Domain Mark is not an acceptable "license" for use on Commons (i.e. {{Flickr-public domain mark}}), but the Upload Wizard still allows it entry. Could the wizard be changed to automatically reject such images, rather than create additional confusion amongst uploaders? Or is there a reason I'm not seeing for it's continued acceptance here?

Recognize Flickr ID[edit]

When uploading files from Flickr the form asks for a Flickr-url. Would it be possible to recognize a Flickr ID like 38891071@N00 when it's put in just on its own? Vera (talk) 11:04, 6 April 2020 (UTC)
