Upload issues for more than two hours[edit]

I have been trying for several hours now to upload three pictures and after being queued for several minutes I get a message that the server did not respond within the expected time. That is ten minutes. I have very fast internet by the way and no connection issues. Are Wiki servers currently being under maintenance? I thank you in advance. EDITː The problem persists. So far I have been able to upload files only through my Flickr account. — Preceding unsigned comment added by George E. Koronaios (talk • contribs) 21:11, 7 August 2021‎ (UTC)[reply]

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)[reply]

no campaigns wlm-sd[edit]

There is no campaign with name "wlm-sd".

Лексическая ошибка в предложении.

"Добросовестное использование недопустимо на Викискладе." Подразумевает, что нельзя использовать добросовестные методы, т.е. обязывает нарушать.


  • "Допустимо только добросовестное использование на Викискладе."
  • "Недобросовестное использование недопустимо на Викискладе."


There are 12 cartoons by Bill

There are 12 cartoons by Bill Erwin from 1944 I have tried repeatedly to add, but it is too complicated for my shaky haands to jump through all your hoops.

do it yourself. They can be found at:

My experience as a first-time uploader[edit]

Transperth bus stop 11207 and bus 1670. My first upload.

As a long-time Commons contributor, but first-time uploader, I made some notes on the Upload Wizard.

In the headings, the numbers are not aligned correctly.

The "Learn" screen is all about copyright, and even here, it misses a key point: the rights granted are irrevocable. It says nothing about scope; it also says nothing about privacy or personality rights (except where it says "public figures and people photographed in public places" are permitted). Note that these links are mine; the upload wizard provides only a link to the Help desk.

Uploading files is a bit tricky, because when dragging files onto the upload screen, they must be dropped onto a small target. Dropping them elsewhere causes the browser to navigate away from the upload wizard. Also, it keeps saying:

"There was an error in your submission

You are already uploading the file '[filename]'."

Buried at the bottom of a long "Describe" screen is this weird notice:

"License for captions contributions only (this applies to caption text, NOT the file)

By clicking 'publish', you agree to the terms of use, and you irrevocably agree to release your contribution under the Creative Commons CC0 License."

At least it is weird to anyone not familiar with copyright. It wasn't on the "Learn" screen, nor on the "Release rights" screen (which recommended CC BY-SA 4.0 over CC0). And CC0 is not a "license"; it is a public domain dedication (though the linked deed has a link to "use the license for your own material", so it looks like everyone has problems with this).

The "Add data" screen does not make it clear that this is optional, except for the "Skip this step" button at the bottom. It is confusing, as SDC always is, and makes things even more confusing by displaying the full filename (including extension and underscores). It also has the same weird CC0 notice as quoted above.

For the file I uploaded, it gets weirder: there are specific categories for the bus and bus stop, but apparently no corresponding Wikidata items; on the other hand, there is a Wikidata item for the Transperth fare zone, but apparently no corresponding Commons category.
