Note: Use the table below to go to the talk pages for the other upload pages. Commons note: It is always preferable to upload free images at Commons:Upload so that the images can be used in all the projects and languages of the Wikimedia Foundation (see Wikimedia.org). Unified login means you may already be registered at the commons. This allows you to upload there immediately.

New Design

We should incorporate the change on wikimedia commons to the wikipedia upload process. It is easyer and is much less overwhelming. Noahk11 (talk) 02:36, 9 November 2011 (UTC)

Uploading from iPhone, iPad, and similar devices

Today, seemingly most people have at least one iPhone, iPad, or similar device, and it is not uncommon for all or most of one's internet usage to be on such a device. But the way things are now, it is impossible to upload with such a device. There should be an easy method for those who have these devices to upload the pictures they take with them directly onto Wikipedia. It is possible to upload videos straight onto YouTube, so why can't it be possible to upload them onto Wikipedia? Any support for this? Sebwite (talk) 19:51, 18 July 2011 (UTC)

Sadly apple would not incorporate this feature into safari. We could add it to the Wikipedia app. Or develop a cydia tweak. — Preceding unsigned comment added by Noahk11 (talkcontribs) 02:36, 9 November 2011 (UTC)
This is a limitation of the default iPhone browser, Safari, and not a limitation of Wikipedia. I am able to upload files using Opera Mobile on a Samsung Galaxy S II running Android 2.3.4. Safari does not conform to web standards. -- 李博杰  | Talk contribs email 02:44, 15 November 2011 (UTC)

Add an NFC licencing template

Can {{non-free character}} be included in the licensing choices available when uploading a non-free image? Then one wouldn't have to use a temporary template that later needs to be replaced with this one Toshio Yamaguchi (talk) 15:33, 23 August 2011 (UTC)

Filling in the basic upload form a la Commons

I've noticed that the basic upload form on en.wiki doesn't have one of the very nice additions that the basic upload form on Commons has, that it that it automatically fills this out when you load the page:


Is there any way we can have this show up when you load the basic upload form? - ʄɭoʏɗiaɲ τ ¢ 16:14, 13 September 2011 (UTC)

"Upload a new version of this file"

Not sure if this is the right place to bring this up or if it has already been discussed, but I have a suggestion. When a signed-in user wishes to upload a new version of a file, he simply clicks on Upload a new version of this file. However, if he is a non-user or is not signed in, he sees nothing. That link simply vanishes. On at least one occasion this has caused some confusion. My suggestion is to leave that link in place, and if it is clicked on by a non-user, he is taken to a page that tells him to either sign in or sign up. This is a very common (and useful) way to handle such a situation. (It would also be desirable to extend this change to commons and all wikis.) JBarta (talk) 21:43, 28 November 2011 (UTC)
