It's not possible to upload a file with the name "$2" because it is a very common or uninformative file name. Please go back and choose a better file name. When uploading files to Wikipedia, please use a file name that describes the content of the image or media file you're uploading and is sufficiently distinctive that no-one else is likely to pick the same name by accident.

Examples of good file names:

Yes check.svg "City of London skyline from London City Hall - Oct 2008.jpg"
Yes check.svg "KDE Kicker config screenshot.png"
Yes check.svg "1863 Meeting of Settlers and Maoris at Hawke's Bay, New Zealand.jpg"
Yes check.svg "Polyhedron with no vertex visible from center.png"

Examples of bad file names:

X mark.svg "Image01.png"
X mark.svg "Joe.jpg"
X mark.svg "DSC00001.JPG"
X mark.svg "30996951316264l.jpg"

For more information, please see Wikipedia:Image file names. If you have a good reason for uploading a file with this name, or if you receive this message when attempting to upload a new version of an existing file, please let us know at Wikipedia:Administrators' noticeboard. Be sure to specify the exact name of the file you are trying to upload. Thank you.
