Allow user to change filename when uploading via Monumental
Closed, DeclinedPublic


Upload filenames provided by Monumental are automatic and are often based on the original monument/building details in the official listing dataset. This is quite often long and/or misleading as it's often not the name that everyone knows the monument by.

Also, serious photographers (the very people we want to enter WLM with high-quality images) often want to have the ability to name their files on Commons according to their own preferred naming scheme.

The UK upload tool has long allowed (and indeed encouraged) users to type in their own filename, and it would be good if Monumental could allow that, too.

Event Timeline

This open task is tagged with Wiki-Loves-Monuments 2018 which was two years ago. If this task was/is resolved, then please update the task status. If this task was not resolved but is still valid, then please update the project tags to include at least one active project tag, so this task could be found when looking at that other project. (Without reaction, this task might get declined at some point.) Thanks a lot!

Removing Wiki-Loves-Monuments 2018 tag as that was two years ago; adding general Wiki-Loves-Monuments tag.

We will not (cannot) implement new updates to the Monumental interface anymore.
