Is it OK if i upload next week? The point is that testing one image in practice equals preparing the whole upload. I just got the final metadata and massaging them for GWToolset, perhaps adjusting translations etc.. can take a few working days.

My GWToolset job halted tonight from 04:24 - 07:40 5 October. Sometimes it helps to submit a tiny job (5 records throttle 1), at 07:57. Repeating this procedure at around 11:15 with a 2-records job, throttle=1, after more than an hours halt did not work. (Perhaps on the contrary.) Regards, hansmu

2500 images/day? This rate is what can be achieved by not uploading through GWToolset, but by running a script (guesstimation), which i can't. Of course, i can't do all these images mentioned above before December 1, but i should upload a fair share of various collections, which cannot be done at the present upload rate of GWToolset. So i would be very grateful for improvements. Regards, hansmuller

@Bawolff: Thanks for your interest.
- How many images? Naturalis has offered 8 million images, but of course not all are of encylopedic value. I have metadata at hand for 240.000 images, but some large collections still have to be explored.
- Timeframe: before December 1st, so 60 days to go.
- Rate: i think i can't reasonably ask for more than 2500 images/day. What would be reasonable? As a rule Naturalis images are about 300 kB.
- Bandwith: I have not experienced delays when using Uploadwizard during quite heavy uploading sessions by other users.

URL2Commons (http://tools.wmflabs.org/url2commons/index.html) seems a better workaround, because in this case URL's re available for download. However, after say 15 uploads, URL2Commons gives error message:
