Disable uploads for eu.wikipedia.org
Closed, ResolvedPublic


Author: mik.iturbe

Basque Wikipedia (eu.wikipedia.org) requests to disable Special:Upload to all users except sysops. Several polls have been held regarding this issue, but the final step of reporting it has never been done.

All files onced stored in the Basque Wikipedia have already been deleted or transferred to Commons, except the Logo. The reason to maintain sysop uploading options is to have the posibility to change the logo.

First vote rejecting uploads in 2007: http://eu.wikipedia.org/wiki/Wikipedia:Bozketak/Fitxategiak_Commonsen

Vote rejecting Fair use in 2007: http://eu.wikipedia.org/wiki/Wikipedia:Bozketak/Fair_Use

Discussion in which no user was against disabling uploads and create the bug (2010): http://eu.wikipedia.org/wiki/Wikipedia:Txokoa/Eskariak/2010eko_urria#Fitxategien_igoera_murriztea

Despite being quite old polls, the community continues to maintain those policies and there is no will to change.

Looks like your logo is on common too!! According to the configuration:

'euwiki'         => 'http://upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedia/commons/0/01/Wikipedia-logo-v2-eu.png',

Which is this wiki page:

So, I am assuming we can disable upload for everyone.
