Talk:Main Page

Hi! Welcome to Wikimedia Commons, the central media repository site. This page is for discussion of the Main Page only.


Non parlo inglese, usate un traduttore.

Un utente, Michele Bassi, copia le foto da internet e le spaccia per sue, osando pure mettere il pubblico dominio sulle foto NON SUE che carica. Ricicla anche da Google Maps (streetview) senza avere il buon senso di citarne l'origine, ma sempre inventando che sono foto sue (e mettendo il pubblico dominio). Bloccate la sua utenza, bloccate il suo IP, cancellate TUTTI i suoi contributi. — Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk • contribs)

Motd/2014-10-13 - possible problematic content?Edit

Excerpt of security camera video showing how Yue Yue was hit twice by vehicles, while 18 others pedestrians or passersby watched and/or ignored the girl laying severely injured on the street.

Looking backward I think it is necessary to ask for comments to my selection of Motd/2014-10-13. Maybe this kind of content could be an ethical issue for some people. I will post this announcement at the village pump‎ too. --Pristurus (talk) 21:50, 24 September 2014 (UTC)

WLM now closedEdit

The WLM contest is now over, so the announcement needs to be removed from this page. --MichaelMaggs (talk) 07:47, 5 October 2014 (UTC)

Want to edit description of today's Media of the DayEdit

I just created English closed captions for today's Media of the Day, the Esperanto music video La fina venk' by translating the Esperanto subtitle file. The file's Summary Description is

English: Video clip for the Esperanto song La fina venk’ by i.d.c. (Éric Languillat).

I'd like to add an Esperanto translation of that, but when I try, I get

You do not have permission to edit this page, for the following reason:
This page is currently protected from editing because it is transcluded in the following page, which is protected with the "cascading" option enabled:
  • Main Page

The translation, in the format of the other-language descriptions I see in the source of the page, would be

{{eo|Video de la esperanta kanto ''La fina venk’'' de i.d.c. (Éric Languillat).}}

which comes out as

Esperanto: Video de la esperanta kanto La fina venk’ de i.d.c. (Éric Languillat).

cache to uploadEdit

uploading media files on is a heavy task when working on slow/poor internet connections. it takes a hell of time and also the data uploaded is lost if the connection is lost before publishing. it would be better if a temp memory is enabled within the user's profile, so that the user i.e the contributor can have the uploads saved in his/her own profile, before they make it open for the world on commons, at any instant of time like as in google docs.this helps in real-time screening of the uploads and also retrieve the data if the connection is lost as the data uploaded is saved automatically at every instant. it also helps in saving time and data usage of the user, as the user want to re-upload files as there could be interruptions over internet connection or even any other works̴Raj.palgun13 (talk) 17:28, 12 February 2015 (UTC)

Migration to new translation systemEdit

Maybe migrate this page into translation extension? By next scheme:

  1. Template:Main Page Template remains as "design skeleton"
  2. Template:Main Page is created as page marked for translations (with wiki-code from current Main Page; added link "translate this page")
  3. All exist translations is migrated into "Template:Main Page/<langcode>"
  4. Main Page and his translations with localised pagenames is changed to simple transcluding of "Template:Main Page/<langcode>"
