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!
