Could not edit my profile page[edit]

Hello,

I wanted to create my profile page and mention how one should quote the licence, but got stopped by an abuse filter.

    @Robertaviana11: MP3 files cannot be uploaded to Wikimedia Commons by new users. I suggest that you convert them to Ogg and then upload them. Please read Commons:Audio for more information. 4nn1l2 (talk) 01:34, 6 July 2018 (UTC)

This building is located at the intersection of San Luis and Sarmiento streets. It was designed in 1914 by Catalan architect Francesc Roca i Simó. 

As it happens in many cases, the building has had its lower floor modernized and taken up by a commercial outlet; but the upper floors were preserved and restored.

None of the filter log links you provided have any entries, and in any case, you cannot upload anything unless you are registered and logged in, which you are not.
But after searching through all the entries in the log, I'm guessing you may be Cabs18 (talkcontribsblock logfilter log), who tried to upload File:Alpha Gamma Rho Coat of Arms.png (histlogsabuse log). If so, the filter you encountered prevents low-resolution and PNG uploads from newly registered users using the particular upload form that you used. The reason for this is that those overwhelmingly turn out to be copyright violations.
Did you actually personally create the logotype, as you claimed when attempting to upload it, and are you personally the copyright holder? If not, the filter worked as intended. You may wish to read Commons:Guidance for paid editors, which includes information on sharing logotypes correctly. LX (talk, contribs) 14:49, 15 July 2018 (UTC)

Jimbomatic60: The filter you encountered prevents low-resolution uploads from newly registered users using the particular upload form that you used. The reason for this is that those overwhelmingly turn out to be copyright violations.
Unfortunately, because of the number of copyright violations, the filter has had to be defined quite broadly, meaning it sometimes stops uploads that aren't copyright violations. And unfortunately, instead of getting rid of the flawed upload form and directing users here to Commons (which the overwhelming majority of volunteers here would prefer), the Wikimedia Foundation thinks that leading users down this blind alley is a good idea.
If this is indeed your own work, you may proceed either by scanning the photo at higher resolution or by uploading the file directly here at Commons. LX (talk, contribs) 14:38, 15 July 2018 (UTC)

Report by Friedrichs1961[edit]

Friedrichs1961: I don't know what an "rwal" is, but the filter you encountered prevents low-resolution uploads from newly registered users using the particular upload form that you used. The reason for this is that those overwhelmingly turn out to be copyright violations. Given that the file that you did manage to upload was a blatant copyright violation of another Wikimedia contributor's work, it is likely that the filter worked as intended. Do not claim to be the author of other people's work. LX (talk, contribs) 14:21, 15 July 2018 (UTC)

The filter you encountered prevents low-resolution uploads from newly registered users using the particular upload form that you used. The reason for this is that those overwhelmingly turn out to be copyright violations. The form is only intended for files that the uploader personally created and hold the copyright to ("This is my own work"). Since you were uploading Dee Freeman's work and claiming that it was your own work, the filter worked as intended.
Also, as you were told five years ago, you should stop writing about yourself on Wikipedia, which is all you've been doing there. LX (talk, contribs) 11:54, 15 July 2018 (UTC)

But after searching through all the entries in the log, I'm guessing you may be Tattoowrap (talkcontribsblock logfilter log), who tried to upload File:Tattoo Wrap.jpg (histlogsabuse log), File:Tattoo wrap 3x5.jpg (histlogsabuse log), File:TattooWrap.jpg (histlogsabuse log), File:Tattoo wrap .jpg (histlogsabuse log) and File:Google merchant center logo.png (histlogsabuse log). If so, the filter you encountered prevents low-resolution and PNG uploads from newly registered users using the particular upload form that you used. The reason for this is that those overwhelmingly turn out to be copyright violations.
In any case, based on the spam related notices on your user talk page on English Wikipedia, it is likely that the images were outside of the educational project scope of Wikimedia Commons.
