@Dereckson Sir, Can you see this wiki allow local upload or not.

Change 380690 had a related patch set uploaded (by Jayprakash12345):
Enable Local File Uploads for Sysop in Doteli Wikipedia

Enabling local uploads on a public project requires not only community consensus but an approved Exemption Doctrine Policy. Otherwise uploading copyrighted content to the project just puts editors at risk for claims on copyright infringement, and the WMF on having to process possible DMCA claims as well. See -- until such time, I don't think we can proceed with enabling local uploads.

What's the root problem you're trying to solve? We can offer you the best course of action depending of that.

Change 380690 abandoned by Jayprakash12345:
Restrict local uploads on dty.wikipedia

No EDP for dty.wikipedia

We can't. The Board resolution on Licensing and the Terms of Use require free files only, unless the wiki has an EDP, which dty has not. Decline at this point?

Is there no solution to the problem?

So, what can be done to solve this problem?

stall until the necessary policies created and verified.

No policies has been created in the last 2.5 years hence unfortunately closing this Phabricator task.

@Saroj_Uprety: After a policy has been created and if this is still wanted, please set the status of this task back to "Open" via the Add Action...Change Status dropdown and provide a link to the policy. Thanks!
