Page title[edit]

To follow up on a usability problem with the previous title brought up on Village pump (Commons:Village_pump#Usability_issues_and_ideas), I move this to Commons:Prototype upload wizard feedback. --  Docu  at 16:12, 23 March 2011 (UTC)

Valid license tag not accepted[edit]

Upload Wizard did not accept {{PD-textlogo}} as a licensing tag and kept returning an error message, although the preview was good. Please fix this ASAP. Fleet Command (talk) 05:53, 20 March 2012 (UTC)

What was the error message? John Vandenberg (chat) 06:07, 20 March 2012 (UTC)
"This does not seem to be valid wikitext, or does not contain a license."

I just tested it myself. It's obviously case-sensitive. {{PD-textlogo}} works; {{pd-textlogo}} (a redirect) does not. LX (talk, contribs) 20:17, 20 March 2012 (UTC)

Does anyone even look at this page anymore?[edit]

I just got my question answered.... so I'm guessing yes. However, I see a lot of non-english questions remain unanswered though, so that's one glaring issue. Dainomite (talk) 07:00, 24 April 2014 (UTC)
It's on my watchlist, and based on reverts of test edits without feedback, I'm not the only one watching it. I guess the relevant question is if any developers who are actually able to do anything about reported problems look at the page. LX (talk, contribs) 15:25, 24 April 2014 (UTC)
I've changed the declaration at the top to a slightly more truthful one. If you're reading this and you're a developer who plans on actually dealing with and responding to feedback left here, please revert me. LX (talk, contribs) 19:30, 16 August 2014 (UTC)
These issues are being looked at the coming 3 months by the multimedia developers. Several patches are under consideration in Gerrit right now, but as you note, it is VERY broken, which also makes it very difficult to know for sure if a change is making something better or worse.

Note that users won't see the header before posting; messages are added from Special:UploadWizard itself via dialog. --Nemo 15:39, 28 August 2014 (UTC)
