Bad filename upload error
Closed, ResolvedPublic


I recently experienced a bad filename error when I tried to upload a file via mobile. The description was "Cheatahs play a live show at Amoeba music"

This generated incorrectly a bad filename error. Any idea why?

Bad filename: [Cheatahs_play_a_live_show_at_Amoeba_music_2014-03-01_16-52.jpg]

I also consistently experienced this error on wmf16 install.

My text was:

Jellyfish. Taken at Ripley's aquarium in Toronto.

The progress bar began to upload, but reset at about 80% finished.

Note: Removing the second period allowed me to upload the file just fine.

I can't reproduce this error. Can either of you provide steps to reproduce?

Maybe it's related to the TitleBlacklist extension. Investigating...

Could not reproduce while using TitleBlacklist extension with same blacklist as production wikis.

We still have to wait for this patch to get on to production. I've pushed the bug to the next iteration.

Let's see if errors reduce after deployment before making this as fixed.

Okay so since code was merged on 15th it rode deployment train on 17th reaching all wikis by 24th

Since that day [1] there have been no badfilename errors whatsoever but various other errors. You can also see the upload error graph drop [2].

(Despite the EventLogging outage there are still errors being reported of other times)
Thus I think we are good.
