If turning off your anti-virus stuff helps, then you need to whitelist this application in the anti-virus settings. --Steinsplitter (talk) 13:33, 17 October 2015 (UTC)
OK jetzt geht's, nachdem ich die Whitelist bearbeitet habe. Dass das Programm "blockiert" (?) wurde, hat mir mein Computer nicht gesagt. Es kann aber eigentlich kein Dauerzustand sein, dass ich mein Antivirusprogramm aushebeln muss, nur damit Commonist läuft ... Jedenfalls danke an alle. MfG --Mattes (talk) 18:28, 17 October 2015 (UTC)
@Mattes: Du kannst das tool sicher in deinem ANtivirus programm whitelisten. --Steinsplitter (talk) 17:01, 5 November 2015 (UTC)

Suggestion: Adding more info


I have been using Commonist during the Eurovision Song Contest, when I've uploaded many, many files. I've added a template on all description files, UNDER the {{Information}}-template, but above the license section. I have done it maually, or placed it in the "permissions"-field in Commonist, and then had my bot move it (on a few hundred pages). It would be nice to be able to place templates or other wikitext in other places on a file page while uploading. -abbedabbtalk 07:27, 30 April 2016 (UTC)

login failed NeedToken

Hi, since an update on Mediawiki 1.27.0 (own wiki) there is just a error message:

INFO [2016-07-15T15:42:27.529Z] UploadFilesTask.scala:97 login failed NeedToken

Worked previously correctly. Is there any help? Thanks a lot. --Tom Jac (talk) 16:02, 15 July 2016 (UTC)

@Tom Jac: Which version of commonist do you use? --Steinsplitter (talk) 16:20, 15 July 2016 (UTC)
1.5.0 Thanks!! --Tom Jac (talk) 16:25, 15 July 2016 (UTC)

What is the fix? Where do I find the text-file of the upload site addresses and presumably then edit and recompile? I am on Linux Mint 17.1 (Ubuntu). I am looking at Vicuna, and like the offline prep, but those guys have time constraints and a bug fix backlog. ClemRutter (talk) 22:46, 26 July 2016 (UTC)
thanks for the notice, i'll adapt the code. -- Ritschwumm (talk) 14:07, 27 July 2016 (UTC)
wait a minute - the commonist has been using https for a long time already, see github -- Ritschwumm (talk) 14:11, 27 July 2016 (UTC)


Sorry for my poor english, so i write in german. Seit wenigen Wochen übernimmt der Commonist nicht mehr die Koordinaten aus den Exifdaten. Es gab einige Updates auf meinem Rechner, so das es auch an mir liegen könnte. System: Win10/64prof. Kann das mal bitte jemand überprüfen? Gruss --Nightflyer (talk) 20:41, 27 July 2016 (UTC)

sorry, i broke the gps coordinate parser in the last release. the code is fixed, a new release will be online soon. -- Ritschwumm (talk) 18:45, 31 July 2016 (UTC)

Categories not working and badfilename error

Please take a look at User:Watchduck/gallery#Sun_Jul_31_22:26:40_CEST_2016 and below.

Can someone please fix this? There is not really a point in uploading hundreds of images with Commonist, and then making and empty edit to each of them.
Update: I uploaded the badfilename files with upload wizard, and the category problem appears there as well. So the problem seems to be with Commons itself. Watchduck (quack) 21:59, 31 July 2016 (UTC)

Repeat data from one file to the rest?

Is there an easy way to copy the data (name, description, categories, etc) from one file to the next? That is, without having to copy every field manually, and automatically number them - the way Vicuna does, when it works? Bubba73 (talk) 02:49, 16 February 2017 (UTC)

@Bubba73: The fields in the sidebar on the left side should work, although I think the file names have to be done manually or by renaming the files on your computer. Jc86035 (talk) Use {{re|Jc86035}}

Hochladen von fehlgeschlagen ( failed to respond)

Erste Frage:

Wann wird endlich dieser Fehler behoben? Und vor allem, woran liegt es? Ich hab ihn schon seit Windows XP. An meinem derzeitigen Rechner auch (Win10 mit 8Gbyte Ram und mehr als genug CPU-Power. Uploadgeschwindigkeit 1,1MBit/s). In der letzen Woch war ich in einem Hotel mit meinem Notebook (Win10 mit 16GByte Ram und einer Uploadgeschwindigkeit von 2,2 MBit/s). An der Performance von Rechner oder Internetverbindung liegt es nicht. Und trotzdem bricht das Hochladen ab.

Zweite Frage:

Ein Klick auf: fehlerhafte bewirkt bitte was? Bei mir nichts. In der Beschreibung findet sich auch kein Hinweis. Ich hatte gehofft, das alle noch nicht hochgeladenen Dateien in einem neuen Anlauf versucht würden.

Fixing the France map

Hey. You need yo fix one of the maps you've created --

France in European Union (-rivers -mini map).svg

-- bc the island Corsica, which is not colored in RED, is part of France as an official county/region. Just as the islands right next to Spain are colored in RED as well, bc they're part of that country. So, I'd like you to color this island as well as part of France. Thanks.

What's meaning the field "Heading" in version 1.7.0? thx K@rl (talk) 20:36, 5 October 2017 (UTC)

Mein Wissen: Wenn du einen integrierten oder fest installierten GPS-Sensor auf deiner Kamera benutzt (auf dem Blitzschuh), dann kennt das Ding die Richtung, in die du fotografiert hast. Das ist "Heading". Steht dann in den Exifs. Gruss --Nightflyer (talk) 21:03, 5 October 2017 (UTC)
Verstehe, danke . --K@rl (talk) 06:09, 6 October 2017 (UTC)

Template Artwork

This was asked before here, but unfortunately having no skills in java I understand nothing. What file I have to copy and where? --Carl Ha (talk) 16:01, 13 October 2017 (UTC)

Try to edit the License-field. Gruss --Nightflyer (talk) 18:05, 13 October 2017 (UTC)

Did I just lose hours of work with one click?

In the past I usually used the UploadWizard. But I find it tedious for large numbers of images. So I wanted to try Commonist for my current batch of several hundred image files to upload. I loaded the files into Commonist, edited file names, descriptions, categories and coordinates which took me some hours. While editing the infos I realized my own finger was visible in one of the images. So I cropped the finger out and wanted to add the edited image to the folder. I was unsure how to make the file appear in Commonist, so I changed the selected folder in the file selector on the bottom left to another folder and back to the original folder.

All the edited file infos are gone now and I don't see any obvious possibility to get it back... Is it really the case that Commonist deletes all edits without requesting confirmation? --Slomox (talk) 14:24, 25 September 2017 (UTC)

Unfortunately, yes. Gruss --Nightflyer (talk) 18:26, 25 September 2017 (UTC)
That is unfortunate indeed :( I would suggest to make it less easy to discard all your changes.
I'm afraid that VicuñaUploader didn't perform that much better for me... --Slomox (talk) 09:07, 26 September 2017 (UTC)
@Slomox: Sorry for my poor english. I also dont like VicuñaUploader. There are Pattypan. I don't try it. Gruss --Nightflyer (talk) 19:42, 26 September 2017 (UTC)
