tools[edit]

I wasn't aware of any. Which tools should I use? WhisperToMe (talk) 23:23, 29 July 2015 (UTC)

@WhisperToMe, https://tools.wmflabs.org/commonshelper/ is the one I use the most for individual transfers (really painless and gives you an option to easily tag the old file for delete) and there's For the Common Good for clearing backlogs. If you google "move to commons" you'll find a whole bunch of (...outdated) guides and userscripts, if you prefer something else. But it's best to use a tool so the Commons file gets the full, automated import. – czar 00:55, 30 July 2015 (UTC)

I'm trying to move de:File:Lycée_Jean_Renoir.JPG with the bot but it keeps giving me a "This file did not pass file verification: Files of the MIME type "text/html" are not allowed to be uploaded." - What should I do? WhisperToMe (talk) 23:28, 14 August 2015 (UTC)

Hm, I don't see what's causing that. I reported it to the tool's maintainer at their requested site: https://bitbucket.org/magnusmanske/commonshelper/issues/2/issue-with-de-file-lyc-e_jean_renoirjpg – czar 04:52, 15 August 2015 (UTC)
Thank you! WhisperToMe (talk) 11:50, 15 August 2015 (UTC)

Should I try another way to automatically move the file or is it ok for me to manually move this one? WhisperToMe (talk) 23:12, 17 August 2015 (UTC)

There are bunch listed at w:Wikipedia:Moving files to the Commons. I'd start with For the Common Good (for Windows, if you have it), which you might like anyway for doing backlog processing. Then there are some other scripts listed at the bottom of the page, and if all else fails, you can do it manually with the directions on the page. Magog's fileinfo should generate the license text to manually import. Godspeed – czar 23:18, 17 August 2015 (UTC)
It worked! Thank you :) WhisperToMe (talk) 23:48, 17 August 2015 (UTC)
