Wizard refuses to upload images from flickr via http
Closed, InvalidPublic


Author: cometstyles

When trying to upload an image from flickr to commons via [[Special UploadWizard/Flickr]] using http, when we add the image link to the "Get from Flickr", it goes to the next step but the image just keeps on loading (in a loop).... it doesn't go any further ..only affects http version, not the https one..

The web console for the browser shows this:

GET [HTTP/1.1 200 OK 3453ms]
GET [HTTP/1.1 200 OK 1282ms]
GET [HTTP/1.1 200 OK 2064ms]

POST [HTTP/1.1 504 Gateway Time-out 10433ms]

And with the original user it fails all the time?
Maybe the user is blacklisted and the error message about the blacklist is not returned for some reason? The blacklist is at

tried it with multiple others, seems to be be affecting one user who releases all his images under (cc-by-sa) and no he is not blacklisted, probably one of the only few to release their images fully on flickr..

Its still a problem, when on http (, it refuses to upload most images, it goes on a loop, nothing to do with vrowser cache, more to do with being unable to converts https API link to http ..
