- Pd or cc-by-sa files, uploaded in Wikipedias locally, are afterwards moved to Wikimedia Commons by admins. Users lose their statistics and admins have more work to do that could be avoided.
- Fair use files, uploaded in Wikipedias locally, are deleted if oversized, or resized. This is more work for users and admins.
Files types are selected from a file type list, for locally uploaded files. If each file type had an upload limit in dimension size (total number of pixels: XX px * YY px) this would:
- assist fair use uploads as file size could be automatically checked and denied before publishing
- give the option to restrict new pd or cc-by-sa uploads locally, and force using Wikimedia Commons from that point of time and beyond.
