- Could GWToolset upload donated files faster again please?
To mass upload large image donations by museums to Wikimedia Commons, GWToolset has been very useful. However, the upload speed is erratic: sometimes i could upload say 2000 images/24 hours (for instance three weeks ago (300kB files), 1 May 2015 (50 MB files)), at other times (end July-beginning August 2015) only around or less than 200 x 300kB/24 h. This is the case again the previous 10 days.
Judging by https://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/Special:NewFiles "Recent uploads", the upload server could handle a higher priority of GWToolset jobs. GWT was expected to run a background job "at least every 5 minutes". Presently, it can take more than three hours before GWT resumes (my job this morning 05:01 - 08:12), independent of throttle.
I am presently temporarily wikipedian in residence at Naturalis Biodiversity Center at Leiden (May-November 2015). At this upload speed i cannot fulfill my obligations to the donor Naturalis of uploading many more thousands of their images, so i would be very grateful for a higher upload speed.
Thank you for considering this request, best regards
