Same thing here It's Me200000 (talk) 16:42, 7 July 2020 (UTC)

Yup. Not working for me either. Gluchie (talk) 03:25, 12 September 2020 (UTC)

Jesus christ... not working again. This is the world's most popular encyclopedia yet half the time the pic upload never works. Please for god's sake fix it. WisDom-UK (talk) 16:35, 18 September 2020 (UTC)

It’s not working

Why is the link to wizard upload not working? Nicolenicoattodou (talk) 22:55, 29 August 2020 (UTC)

Yep same here. The pic upload wizard is incredibly unreliable. WisDom-UK (talk) 22:07, 30 August 2020 (UTC)

Another day of frustration trying to upload anything on the pic wizard. It is easily the most annoying and unstable part of this site, in fact it probably puts people off uploading anything.WisDom-UK (talk) 20:51, 2 September 2020 (UTC)

Edit request

Please change "his/her biographical article" in line 1315 to "their biographical article". We have many articles on people who identify as non-binary. the wub "?!" 13:46, 27 September 2020 (UTC)

@The wub: can you point to the steps in the wizard that make this appear (want to make sure there isn't anything odd in that section)? — xaosflux Talk 14:09, 27 September 2020 (UTC)
@Xaosflux: If an uploader in Step 3 selects:
  • "This is a copyrighted, non-free work, but I believe it is Fair Use."
  • followed by "This is an historic portrait of a person no longer alive."
  • and checks "This image will be shown as a primary means of visual identification at the top of the article dedicated to the person in question."
then this message will be used in the Purpose field of {{Non-free use rationale 2}}. the wub "?!" 14:29, 27 September 2020 (UTC)
 Done, thanks! Writ Keeper  16:19, 27 September 2020 (UTC)
Thank you! the wub "?!" 20:05, 27 September 2020 (UTC)

not working AGAIN

Have you guys ran out of server space and so you're trying to discourage people from uploading anything? I am trying to upload pictures that were deleted by some some robot in error and surprise surprise -the pic upload wizard isn't working. Sometimes I really do wonder why I bother with Wikipedia. WisDom-UK (talk) 19:12, 28 September 2020 (UTC)

@WisDom-UK: as has been mentioned before, you need to give more detail than "it isn't working". For example - any error messages you receive, the size of the file you were trying to upload, at what stage in the upload process did it stop working. Nthep (talk) 19:41, 28 September 2020 (UTC)
In common parlance, 'not working' is used when something with a set function is note operating as it should. In this case, the wizard's job is to upload files. One adds a file, one presses upload, and lo - it whirrs along for a bit and then doesn't upload the file. So I've now spent an hour of my life trying to re-upload my wrongfully-deleted files, which were removed by an over-zealous bot with no warning. It's not fun. And why I am giving up my free time for something that's not even fun, and in fact exactly like working for some public sector body with crap IT, I don't know.WisDom-UK (talk) 20:08, 28 September 2020 (UTC)
