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)

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."

Next button please[edit]

When entering metadata for multiple uploads, a "Next" button would be nice. The "Upload for all images" button is prominent, selecting the next image from the list at the left is not as obvious (unless I am missing something).--agr (talk) 16:09, 27 October 2020 (UTC)

If I put the Creator page template into the Author (artist) field, it would be nice if that would then automatically populate (or suggest) the wikitext for the (best and most applicable) license to use. Going on from that it would be nice if it were to suggest appropriate categories to use against the file? Broichmore (talk) 20:22, 10 November 2020 (UTC)

I just read the top of this page, this page no longer supported! Broichmore (talk) 12:36, 16 December 2020 (UTC)

Asian text prevents upload from Flickr?[edit]

I tried to upload this free image[1] from Flickr through the upload wizard, but it fails, and am I right in thinking it's because of the Asian script in the title (or its length)? How can I make it work? FunkMonk (talk) 23:53, 14 December 2020 (UTC)

@FunkMonk: It's the length: "Filenames may not be longer than 240 bytes."   — Jeff G. please ping or talk to me 04:25, 15 December 2020 (UTC)
Ok. But what can I do about it? Seems a shame there are free images that can't be sued for such a trivial reason? There was an old Flickr upload thingy where one could just change the filename before uploading... FunkMonk (talk) 18:23, 15 December 2020 (UTC)
@FunkMonk: Commons:Flickr2Commons will let you rename files. Andy Mabbett (Pigsonthewing); Talk to Andy; Andy's edits 20:23, 15 December 2020 (UTC)
Ah, thanks, that was probably the one I remembered,but the interface is much different. FunkMonk (talk) 21:38, 15 December 2020 (UTC)

EXIF date not being picked up[edit]

It appears that date and time is not being picked up automatically from jpg EXIF during upload. Shyamal L. (talk) 11:55, 16 December 2020 (UTC)

Works published in 1925[edit]

The Upload Wizard needs updating: upon choosing the option "The copyright has definitely expired in the USA" it still offers "First published in the United States before 1925 instead of 1926, and so it discourages people from uploading works published in 1925. --Jan Kameníček (talk) 22:03, 9 January 2021 (UTC)

One would think that the developers would have solved this already, after what happened last year. *sigh*   — Jeff G. please ping or talk to me 01:51, 10 January 2021 (UTC)
@Jan.Kamenicek, Jeff G.: I came here to report the same thing. The code to use is {{#time:Y|-95 years}}, which will display the correct year in a way that updates. Should we open a Phabricator ticket, or is there another way to report this? {{u|Sdkb}}talk 17:04, 13 January 2021 (UTC)
@Sdkb: Yes, we can try it as it seems that nobody maintaining Upload Wizard follows the Upload Wizard feedback page. I personally have very bad experience with reporting bugs to phabricator too, but there is probably nothing else left, so let's try. --Jan Kameníček (talk) 18:04, 13 January 2021 (UTC)
Oops, looks like we opened phabs at the same time. Hopefully they can be merged. {{u|Sdkb}}talk 18:27, 13 January 2021 (UTC)
