Speravir added a comment to T255444: Regression: Sidebar "User uploads" link now missing from Commons user pages.

What did it supposedly link to? Could it be that someone considered this as duplicative? Because, in Vector I can on every user page find two links behind the “More” menu (which is in the sidebar for the other skins I think): one named “Uploads” with a link to Special:ListFiles/<username>, and one named “Contributions” linking to Special:Contributions/<username>. Because of this I never missed the line in the sidebar.

though I'm not advocating we start checking userspace scripts :)

Speravir updated subscribers of T254177: Special:Upload reports that some valid PNG files have MIME type unknown/unknown.

I consider Special:Upload a hidden feature that only users use if they specifically want or need that for some reason and is thus less well-tested or cared for at this time.

Could this be related to chunked uploads? The Upload Wizard does support them, the legacy upload form does not. I remember very dark that I had similar issues several years ago when my internet connection was quite slow, too. The issues went away from the moment I used chunked uploads (I use the script bigChunkedUpload.js, though).

Speravir added a comment to T253405: Some (recent?) uploads to Commons are not available on other wikis.

Info: I renamed File:Fioan Fiedler.jpg to File:Fiona Fiedler.jpg (typo fix). And I had noticed before that in :de:Fiona Fiedler a message box appeared on top informing about unflagged changes of a file or template. I did the flagging then – it was the file. By default unflagged changes are not visible to readers in dewiki.

Do you have any thoughts on how it should be exposed? Would you want keywords like intitleonly: and inredirect: (exact names open for discussion)

Speravir added a comment to T223446: Cannot upload larger JPG/WEBM/GIF files: "An error was encountered when opening the file for ZIP checks".

I got this error message with a GIF file, File:Steam engine in action (half speed).gif, processed with GIMP (doubled animation time for every frame). As you can see this is very small. If this does matter: I got this error with the script BigChunkedUpload.

Speravir added a comment to T222994: Upload fails at Wikimedia Commons "Internal error: Server failed to store temporary file.".

I ran into the same issue when I tried to upload File:Healthy Pescetarian Meal.jpg. I did not use the Upload Wizard, though. I tried it with the script BigChunkedUpload. The file is so small that it was uploaded as one chunk, but could this nethertheless be the reason for the issue? I subsequently did successfully upload with the Special:Upload page which is not able to do chunked uploads. Note that there is another task with the same error message and chunked uploads, but this have been for bigger images: T89197.

Yes, seems to be fixed. Would be good if someone found the according code change(s).

I confirm @Jdx' observation, cf, diff link:

A small "how to" replicate the problem:

Choose a random file – there is no comment for the current version (of course I assume that some comment exists).
Purge the file – the comment appears.
Press "reload" button in your browser – the comment disappears (I've noticed that sometimes the button has to be pressed twice).
