Yes, I have lots of crap on my Commons watchlist, built up over 17+ years. Based on a suggestion at https://commons.wikimedia.org/w/index.php?title=Commons:Village_pump#Low_server_performance? after Special:EditWatchlist failed (see above), I tried to use https://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/Special:EditWatchlist/raw and got "Not enough memory to open this page". :( How much memory should I need to edit my watchlist with 239k pages? Can someone rid my watchlist of all pages which start "File:" for me?

I had to back off to 100 today, and then I tried to edit my watchlist using https://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/Special:EditWatchlist and got the following, so it looks like we need "Set $wgShowExceptionDetails = true;" on Commons:

Perhaps we can exclude changes where "New content model ($1) (new_content_model)" is 'wikibase-mediainfo' to remove such false positives?

Right, those are all too far ago to still in the recent logs. Today's, however, I can find, and swift has done what was asked of it - that file was uploaded and subsequently deleted (before further requests got 404, which you'd expect after a successful delete).

@MatthewVernon I just used Upload Wizard to upload the file. I did not see neither attempt to delete the file after upload. After progressbar reached the end, it just spit out the abovementioned error.

You can try to upload the file yourself: https://fex.net/s/ckmb8ov - the same file or any other PDF bigger than 1.5 GB.

Jeff_G added a comment to T327003: Tool-nfp Source column does not wrap well or have a working link and wiki abbreviations are duplicated.

Wrapping should be fixable but making the link actually work (or any parsing of the wikitext to HTML) is quite hard without making the system vulnerable to Stored XSS attacks. I could use action=parse in the commons API but that wouldn't be useful if there is a template in source. It's a bit tricky to fix this.

Jeff_G added a comment to T288346: Enable non-file page creation logs on Wikimedia Commons.

[...]
As such, perhaps it would make sense to codify that in MediaWiki natively that for NS_FILE we don't emit this event and instead assume it to be an upload (manually created pages there are very rare and usually an accident, and for catching/reviewing that we have recent changes already).

Would it be possible to only log filespace creations not associated with uploads? From a user's perspective, this wouldn't be too unexpected, as Special:Newpages already does that in the file namespace.

That would work for me. The consensus has now been archived to c:Commons:Village pump/Archive/2021/07#Page creation logs.

Jeff_G added a comment to T279407: FAILED: stashfailed: Internal error: Server failed to publish temporary file..

I tried to publish the file in my UploadStash anyway using a community tool, it said to try back tomorrow. I also started another upload of the same file with "use stash and async (recommended for large videos and photos)" unchecked, and I will check progress after I sleep.

@Meno25 @Helmoony @Jeff_G @Slowking4 it would be really great if we got some feedback on the above questions. We currently try to figure out what additional data would be helpful so that the communities can better deal with situations like this. Thanks! :-)

@Jeff_G that's because the template is still fully protected. You can only edit pages that are template protected. See the current list.
