Once the 5GiB limit is lifted, that could work.

It is sporadic. I can think of no way to reproduce (provoke) it. I am trying to avoid these errors by changing browsers and OSs.

C.Suthorn added a comment to T227074: Transcoding fails for large videos for QHD and UHD resolution.

Just saw that the transcoding is now at 42 minutes, and while looking at it, came about this thought: the files are 4GiB (to the byte) each. Maybe the transcoded versions are exceeding the 4GiB file system limit?

C.Suthorn added a comment to T230298: uploadwizard does not add caption to seventh file of an upload.

Until know this has not happened again (or I did not notice), I cannot give a way to reproduce. I assume it happens sporadically because of time outs that only sometimes occur.

C.Suthorn added a comment to T229249: 4 files, that will not upload with uploadwizard (Internal error: Server failed to store temporary file.) for server-side upload.

I am trying to avoid these errors in the uploadwizard. Upload files takes time. If an upload stalls and after minutes or an hour the browser crashes (or only the tab with the upload wizard) I have lost work and time. Still I have tried to record a screen video of some uploads - but in that cases the upload worked. What can be reproduced is, uploading some files, than when the wizard asks "do you want to upload more files" (not the add more files stage!), choose some more files and after upload starts a window pops up "you are already uploading (name of the first file of the second batch)". Only option is "ok" and after that this "duplicate" file uploads ok. If you upload in more than one batch a number of files that together exceed the limit of 50 (500 for me) you get a window "to much files" -> ok -> upload works. To me it seems, that the wizard does not correctly clean up variables after a batch of uploaded files. It also seems to me that the wizard has a memory leak, causing the crashes that occur randomly, but mostly in connection with uploads of large numbers of files. If the loading and display of thumbnails by the wizard could be unticked with a checkbox - that might be a workaround of this memory leak.

It is text, that is displayed within the uploadwizard: I uploaded three files. One succeded (after a very long time), two showed the text "connection issues" (all three messages in the same instance/tab of the uploadwizard at the same time).

I tried with the files 383 to 385. It took extremly long on ubuntu, but 383 succeded, while 384 and 385 failed with "network connection issues". I experienced this problem before and the only solution was to upload with another OS.

All the files from the series, that I successfully upladed have less than 10MB, The four files that do not work for me are 10MB+. I cannot access the Uploadstash. It times out after 60 seconds, because there are still hundreds of files from failed uploads.

C.Suthorn added a comment to T216639: Link to Wikipedia from Twitter should be more pretty.

I do not know, what the TwitterCards Extension does (how it works), but the difference may be, that the image provided to Twitter would not be an image from commons, but a computer generated image, possibly with a version of one of the wiki logos, but mainly with text rendered as image and the text being a very basic description of the artice (something like "19th century history article" for articles like "Eifeltower" or the like.

Obviously you looked at the image, as you refered to the category. a number of edits are marked as bot edits. That does not make sense to me. Possibly it makes sense to someone else.

C.Suthorn added a comment to T207978: Some edits by some bot are listed as edits by me in my watchlist.

Yes, commons. To all I know, there is no bot. I uploaded 48 files with the UploadWizard (which by the way still does not work on ubuntu16 and macos for me, but works fine with ubuntu18. there are sporadic reports about the wizard at commons:forum, at least one claiming, the wizard uses 100 % of the RAM). If all files were marked as bot, this would be wrong but consistent. if none was marked, all would be fine. But it is random. And software (apart from crypto and lottery software) should not produce random results.

Reproducing: I experienced this from time to time when I clicked "watchlist" on a day, that I uploaded a number of files. I do not think there is a sure way of reproducing - apart from uploading a number of files, then clicking on "watchlist" on the same day. The "b" tags seem to vanish later, but I am not sure.

Also I do not think, that it makes a difference if the mail is HTML or plain. Either the mail client will support URLs in plain text mail - then URL encoding will work. Or the mail client does not, then you have to copy the URL and paste in the web browser - in which case an encoded URL will work also.

Only the closing paranthesis at the end of the URL is affected, not the opening one inside the URL. Therefore I do not think, it is caused by URL-endocing (unless the opening paranthesis gets encoded and the closing one does not).

In the meantime I managed to upload files with HighSierra/Safari, but not with iOS or Firefox/Ubuntu. It also did not work with files cropped to 4.6, 4.8 and 4.9 MB (by blacking part of the image but keeping the image dimension). This happens with files I uploaded without problems in the past to commons without problems (with the same computer and software). I also cannot upload new files with firefox, that I now uploaded successfully with HighSierra.

This is the thumb from the UploadStash of a file I already ulploaded about two weeks ago successfully. If it was 1%, or 97 % or 100 % complete in the Stash, I would be willing to accept that this is some local problem at my side, maybe Javascript. But it is about 80 % complete and I cannot think what might go wrong on my side, while 80 % of a file has been uploaded and instead of going on with the last 20 percent the remaining time goes up from a minute to four minutes to 37 minutes to an hour to two hours to fours hours within less than a minute.

A complete list of steps is welcome. File types, number of files, location of files, etc. Every parameter is important. "simply invoking" is not exact steps. :)

Also the same happens with iOS/Safari, only that after a short time the upload form changes to red icons for all files to be uploaded and an error message of "Error" (full quote of the error message (!) ). The files in the UploadStash look the same.
