Uploading up to 500 images at a time with Special:UploadWizard[edit]

For a while I was using a little hack for uploading up to 500 images at a time with Special:UploadWizard. If someone have a need to use that feature I would like to learn if it works for others. What you do is:

  1. go to this stage using Chrome brouwser
  2. open java script console with Ctrl + Shift + J
  3. paste "mw.UploadWizard.config.maxUploads = 500;"
  4. now if you open an album or a photostream with up to 500 images you can upload them all at once

This greatly simplify upload from flickr from albums with 100s of good images, but you still need to add descriptions and categories to them all and possibly clean up default names. What I am interested in is it works for other (maybe it works only for some subgroups of users) and does it work in other browsers. There is a talk at phabricator:T135085 to increase number of allowed uploads. --[[User:Jarekt|Jarekt]] ([[User talk:Jarekt|<span class="signature-talk">{{int:Talkpagelinktext}}</span>]]) 16:27, 26 May 2017 (UTC)
