Easier Flickr uploads with F2ComButton[edit]

Note: The following discussion started at Commons:Village pump

User Odie5533 has created a greasemonkey script for easier uploading from Flickr 2 commons. Here is his project page: User:Odie5533/F2ComButton. Check it out...--Diaa abdelmoneim (talk) 10:51, 26 July 2009 (UTC)

That is nice, but I do not understand why this is not integrated in the upload form for Flickr images. Just let contributors enter the url for the Flickr image. An upload-bot could then do all the rest, and also verify that the license was good enough. Same for images from other wikipedias, from the government, etcetera. /Pieter Kuiper (talk) 20:35, 26 July 2009 (UTC)

More upload failures[edit]


Please see User talk:Bryan.

Please note the problems being experienced with Bryan's Flickr upload bot. Please do so at the bottom sentences at:

See where it says: "Commons provides an experimental service, which enables users to easily transfer images from Flickr as an alternative to this page."

Mention that User:Flickr upload bot is currently experiencing problems.

At the top of User talk:Bryan is a note where Bryan says that he is no longer reading the talk page there regularly, and in case he is needed to send him an email. See Special:EmailUser/Bryan --Timeshifter (talk) 02:10, 4 August 2009 (UTC)
