disable file uploads on pt.wikipedia.org
Closed, ResolvedPublic

Description

The portuguese language wikipedia (http://pt.wikipedia.org) decided to disable
local file uploads

link:
http://pt.wikipedia.org/wiki/Wikipedia:Vota%C3%A7%C3%B5es/Impedir_carregamento_de_imagens

Also decided to leave just one link in the toolbox, related to file uploads. In
this moment, there are 2 links related to file upload:

Carregar arquivo (upload file) > http://pt.wikipedia.org/wiki/Especial:Upload
Carregar no Commons (upload in Commons) >
http://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/Special:Upload

The community decided to leave just one link, like this:

Carregar no Commons

linking to a local help page:

http://pt.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ajuda:Como_carregar_ficheiros_no_Commons

The pt.wikipedia community will be grateful

Be patient. Shell requests are mostly done in batches, so it will probably be a
short while before this is implemented (and posting here won't hurry things along).

Set.

There's some kind of JavaScript magic mucking with the upload links, you may wish to remove that and let the native link to Commons
through.

I think the JavaScript is now ok.

The only thing that must be done is to change the link

http://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/Special:Upload?uselang=pt

to

http://pt.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ajuda:Como_carregar_ficheiros_no_Commons

so that the Carregar arquivo (upload file) in the toolbox always links to the
local help page specified above

That was the pt.wikipedia community decision over here:
