Close upload form to normal users on fo.wikipedia
Closed, ResolvedPublic


Author: ice201

Hello. As discussed here: we have a problem with users uploading images that are obviously non free without any licenses, and even free images that should be put on commons, leaving us administrators a lot of work to delete images. What we would like to do is close the upload form to the Faroese Wiki ( to all users EXCEPT for Administrators and Bereaucrats. And have the upload form for normal users redirect to Commons. Or if not possible, then I guess I can just edit the MediaWiki:Upload form for Commons redirection. Thank you.

Ok, I am working on translating the commons interface into faroese. I want when a user clicks on the upload link on the faroese wikipedia, it redirects it to the Commons:Upload/fo form. And also have the upload form closed so when a user clicks on a red link, it does not allow them to upload locally, unless they are of course an ADMINISTRATOR. Thanks again!

Column Prototype
This is a very early prototype of a persistent column. It is not expected to work yet, and leaving it open will activate other new features which will break things. Press "\" (backslash) on your keyboard to close it now.
