Archivo eliminadoEdit


el 11-11-2014 subí el archivo UBA_sxx.jpg con la categoria: "Categoría:Wikifuture UBA" de entera mi autoría y fue eliminado. Entiendo que sucedió por haber publicado un link al archivo original de base. Ahora, intento resubirlo para eliminar ese link externo y no me lo permite, me hace una referencia a un archivo duplicado eliminado. Le cambié el nombre al archivo a: "FFyL_SXX.jpg" y tampoco logro poder aplicar el upload.

La intención de publicar la fuente con link externo, fue un exceso de compromiso por el derecho publico de wikimedia commons, ese link lleva a la reconstrucción 3D original del establecimiento de la FFyL de la UBA que yo mismo he realizado con herramientas informáticas libres en su totalidad.

No veo otra razón por la que se baje el archivo a no ser por la referencia al link externo. Pues, si ese no fuese el motivo, también el resto de las fotos subidas deberían bajarse por no contar con el permiso del arquitecto del edificio de cada facultad, ni de los ingenieros y obreros que colocaron ladrillo a ladrillo el emplazamiento, ni de los estudiantes transeúntes que salen en las mismas fotos, ni de las municipalidad competentes.

El archivo "UBA_sxx.jpg" bajo la categoría "Categoría:Wikifuture UBA" subido por mí, con el usuario Campos.matias, es de mi propia autoría en su entera integridad. — Preceding unsigned comment added by Campos.matias (talk • contribs) 23:38, 12 November 2014‎ (UTC)

Hi! I'm sorry for responding in English, but unfortunately, it doesn't look like anyone who speaks Spanish is going to answer. You might have more luck at Commons:Café. It sounds like you are trying to recreate a file that has previously been deleted. You should not try to do that. Instead, if you wish to appeal the deletion, you should do so at Commons:Undeletion requests. LX (talk, contribs) 19:50, 14 December 2014 (UTC)

Wiki Loves Earth 2014Edit

Ich habe ein Bild für den Wettbewerb Wiki Loves Earth 2014 hochgeladen.

Es ist nicht in der Liste:österreich

Hier heißt es allerdings Weinberg-Höherberg.

Guten Tag! Entschuldigung for responding in English, but it doesn't look like anyone who speaks German is going to answer, and mine is a little rusty. Was this the change you wanted to make? If so, there was nothing preventing you from doing that yourself; the page is not protected. Danke for your contribution! LX (talk, contribs) 20:02, 14 December 2014 (UTC)

Загрузка изоброжения (Постер Мультсериала Паровозик Тишка)Edit

Reuploading a photo that was delatedEdit


in 2011 I have tried to upload a photo of my father on polish Wikipedia, however it was delated. Right now, I am trying to upload tthe same photo again, however it is not possible for some reason. The name of the photo is "Ryszard_smolarek_09.jpg". Can you help me out reuploading this photo? — Preceding unsigned comment added by VelSmolar (talk • contribs)

  • It was deleted because we haven't receive any permission from the copyright holder. You need to contact the copyright holder (most probably the photographer) and ask him to send the permission through Commons:OTRS. Then you can ask for undeletion at Commons:Undeletion requests.

Здравствуйте, товарищи. Не могу загрузить файл. Это портрет человека к статье об этом человеке. Разрешение по электронной почте уже отправил. Внизу страницы загрузки мне выдаёт: "Вы должны указать оригинальный источник файла, автора работы и лицензию." Я указал автора, указал книгу, на которой находится изображение. Лицензию указать не могу. Оставляю поле чистым, как и указано в инструкции. Файл JPEG, 904 КБ. Что ещё?? --Smeu (talk) 21:49, 11 December 2014 (UTC)

How I upload phots ? — Preceding unsigned comment added by Md A R Rahaman (talk • contribs)

Select multiple pictures to uploadEdit

When I select plenty of pictures in same select to upload, only 2 pictures will upload. I must manually select more pictures. Some month ago this works fine but not now.--Motopark (talk) 10:38, 12 December 2014 (UTC)

I'm having the same problem... Does any body knows why it changed? --Pedro Felipe (talk) 21:57, 13 December 2014 (UTC)
Certainly not intentionally. I am also quite sure I could track it down if I would have time and write a patch but I don't have. Only found phab:T41902 on a quick search but I am sure Fabrice Florin is aware of other issue reports regarding that. -- Rillke(q?) 22:38, 13 December 2014 (UTC)
Could you please submit a bug report including browser information to ? We'll look into it ASAP when we know which web browser you're having the issue with.--GDubuc (WMF) (talk) 16:38, 18 December 2014 (UTC)
It happens with Explorer, Chrome amd Firefox. But yesterday I've tried on a Mac (I have a PC) and it worked. So I'm not sure it's a browser problem. --Pedro Felipe (talk) 18:18, 20 December 2014 (UTC)

.docx is not accepted?Edit

What file type could be accepted? — Preceding unsigned comment added by Itsmeallie24 (talk • contribs)

Check out Commons:File types (COM:FT), it has a link to a Commons:Project scope/Allowable file types summary. In theory PDF is allowed, if it's really in scope for Commons, but actually Commons is a repository of (in scope) media files, audio, video, image. In free formats, the ISO 19500 standard for Microsoft's Office document types doesn't really count as "free" (and it's only "open" for folks willing to read, understand, and implement several thousands of pages in the ooXML standard. ;) –Be..anyone (talk) 12:49, 13 December 2014 (UTC)

Файлы больше чем 100 MBEdit

Доброго здоровья уважаемые администраторы. Очень часто необходимо загружать файлы больше чем 100 MB (например, разные старинные книги), знаю что это возможно; если не трудно , напишите пожалуйста подробную инструкцию. С уважением Wlbw68 (talk) 11:45, 14 December 2014 (UTC)

Sorry for replying in English. I really regret not being able to talk in Russian. COM:Chunked uploads (machine translation), I think, describes the procedure you are looking for. -- Rillke(q?) 13:35, 16 December 2014 (UTC)

Error when using the Upload WizardEdit

I'm trying to upload a JPG image using the wizrad, however the upload form never displays in the browser. Instead the message "Done, but with errors in page" is displayed at the bottom of the window, and a blank screen where the form should be. Why is this happening? How can I fix this, and upload? The browser is Internet Explorer 8.0 64bit running on Win.7 O/S. Thanks! DPdH (talk) 09:09, 18 December 2014 (UTC)

A personal recommendation: Either use Internet Explorer 10 or any other browser, e.g. the latest Opera. The likehood that JavaScript is broken on IE <10 is quite high. Currently I have neither time to report this issue to Phabricator nor to track it down. Or simply use something not wizardy-like from COM:Upload. -- Rillke(q?) 17:38, 18 December 2014 (UTC)
Thanks! Didn't know this simple form, and worked really well. Regards,DPdH (talk) 04:01, 19 December 2014 (UTC)

upload image mislukt omdat een voorgaande versie inmiddels is deleted. ORTS toestemming ontvangen onder Ticket#2014120910008089Edit

Goedemiddag, Ik tracht de upload van 'Portret van Jenny Amelia Mulder getekend door Isa van der Zee op wiki commons te realiseren. Ik heb aan ORTS de toestemming van de maakster gemeld en hierop de volgende acceptatie ontvangen: Ticket#2014120910008089 onder standaard licentie CC-BY-SA. De upload mislukt omdat het portret inmiddels is verwijderd. Ik voldoe denk aan de licentie voorwaarden, de vraag is echter hoe krijg ik de upload voor elkaar en geïmplementeerd in de Biografie van Jenny Amelia Mulder?

Hi, if the OTRS procedure for the deleted file is ready you can request its undeletion on COM:UNDEL. –Be..anyone (talk) 01:13, 20 December 2014 (UTC)

Re-Uploading of deleted fileEdit

Was muss ich tun, wenn das Hochladen einer Datei wegen folgender Fehlermeldung nicht möglich ist: "Es war bereits andere Datei gleichen Inhalts vorhanden. Sie wurde allerdings gelöscht." Y7mx (talk) 17:08, 19 December 2014 (UTC)

in multiple picture upload, last picture must renamed before can uploadEdit

When I try upload multiple pictures, I got an error message in last picture This title has been specified for more than one file you're going upload. Underscores are treated as spaces, a file extension is added automativally. I must add one character to the name of picture and after that it will continue.--Motopark (talk) 14:15, 21 December 2014 (UTC)
