Getting a "error" when uploadingEdit

Before, when I use the Upload Wizard, it usually upload all in that order. But some just stalls there but the uploading order continues on and eventually the file that were stuck failed to upload with the word "error". --Vauxford (talk) 23:24, 19 June 2019 (UTC)

me too, Gnangarra 00:27, 20 June 2019 (UTC)
Also tried using alternative methods such as using the Commonist Java program and it still gets the same problem so it obviously something wrong on the behalf of how things are uploaded on here. --Vauxford (talk) 07:06, 20 June 2019 (UTC)

caption & descriptionEdit

for the WLM-campaigns, can we get rid of either the caption or the description? Lets only ask for the essential information, both is too many questions right now for a campaign where we try to streamline the process for new contributors. I would think the caption is probably most informative of the two. Effeietsanders (talk) 18:35, 17 July 2019 (UTC)

The process is not user-friendly, in part because we ask for so many separate descriptions. First, a filename, to be both unique and descriptive. Then separate boxes for a caption, description, and a few categories, and finally a "depicts". We old-timers understand the distinct and precise requirements for each, but it is surely very confusing to our newbies, even in a campaign that specifically invites them and might have someone helping. For a new uploader trying to make a contribution without help it must be hopelessly discouraging. Jim.henderson (talk) 04:06, 11 August 2019 (UTC)
I agree, captions should not be asked in this phase. The UploadWizard is getting more complicated than Special:Upload... Nemo 13:16, 22 August 2019 (UTC)


So I'm attempting to upload over 1000 images in batches of 50. But I feel like I'm breaking the service with the submit button clickable but does nothing. Does not proceed.

It's easy for the UploadWizard to crash in unexpected ways when uploading multiple images. Some users only manage to upload 2-3 at a time on their machine. Are you monitoring the RAM and CPU usage to make sure your resources are not saturated? Nemo 13:15, 22 August 2019 (UTC)
