Hello, @AlexisJazz, thanks for filling the request. I need to note after deploying @DannyS712's patch, the technical limit for autopatrolled users would be 500 (same as for other holders of mass-upload right), instead of current 50 images. I see the closed voting asks for no limit, but since that's not easy as it looks like (that'll require approval from relevant WMF teams, since it might have performance impact). I'm going in favour of implementing the 500 limit, in case you'd appreciate a higher one, we can ask UploadWizard team for comments on this. Martin
@Urbanecm in spirit, the vote was to determine the maximum allowable number. The outcome of the vote is either "unlimited" or "a finite number" depending on how much support you want. One million is a also a finite number, so it's the same in practice. So if UploadWizard would reliably start supporting a higher number in the future (who knows, could happen), autopatrolled users should get that. (this future-proofs the proposal) I imagine that higher number would be connected to the mass-upload flag anyway. At this moment, the technical limit is 500 so that's what it'll be. Anyone looking to upload more will probably prefer third party tools anyway.
