Description

Most of this article was translated from Turkish using Google Translate. I apologize if there is a mistake.

I want to upload a fair usage file to Turkish Wikiquote (Vikisöz). But I'm getting the following error.

"Uploading files to this wiki is not enabled. Please upload to Wikimedia Commons.

To be able to use this special page to upload to this wiki, an administrator needs to add one or more license options to the page MediaWiki:Licenses.

Use the following format: * Template name|Label. Use any text to enable uploading without license options.

Anasayfa sayfasına geri dön." (Go back to the home page.)

What do I have to do to avoid this error? Thank you in advance for your help.

can you tell me what is that file? fair use in wikiqoute is kind of strange

I do not have a file to upload now. But usually when I want to add film cover art etc. I can not add because of this error.

I see your point but trust me from my past experience opening uploading for everyone will make the project house of copyrighted files in the long-term. but if you really really need this I think you need to have community approval for this and if you don't have a community over there just open a discussion on the village pump

As Aklapper stated you also need a exception doctrine policy (EDP), that states when it is possible to upload non free media. It MUST NOT conflict with both US or your country law.

Also please be informed that free media SHOULD be uploaded to Commons.

According to site requests triaging rules I am triaging this as Low priority. As on wiki changes are required, I am also assigning this to the requestor. As soon as all required things are done, please empty the assigned to field or assign this to me, we will process it.

Cheers
