T120867: Large amounts of unwanted files (mostly copyvios) uploaded via cross-wiki upload tool (A/B test of different upload interfaces)
Well, I'll continue my check — but the current interim results are IMHO not acceptable:
877 Cross-wiki uploads from pt.wikipedia.org in (+/-) 1 month =
Bad ratio = 85,06 %
Fresh tagged ratio = 49,26 % (the ratio is in fact higher) --> that means that almost 50% of the related uploads were not checked & tagged (copyvios/permissions+source/project scope) or were overlooked after 3 months living in Commons.
And... sorry to say: I would expect similar results for cross-wiki uploads from es.wikipedia.org as well. And surfing sometimes around the file log, checking uploads from other wikis... the situation is quite horrific. Just take one of the logs from my page and go through it... there are full not yet tagged copyvios...
The SWOT has been done in the wiki style, as a discussion: https://commons.wikimedia.org/w/index.php?title=Commons:Village_pump/Proposals&oldid=207565044#Rfc:_Should_we_request_a_configuration_change_to_shut_down_cross-wiki_uploads.3F
As of now I doubt there is anyone advocating for the survival of the tool, so I don't think there is interest in further analysis, other than by the community itself. To get a better SWOT, we can send notices to the various wikis so that more people join the discussion on Commons.
