Thanks for your suggestion of upload from hard disk to tools.wmflabs.org
(although not yet clear to me, and would this upload from hard disk be
allowed there, apart from subsequent upload to Commons?).
Uploads from Amazon s3 or Dropbox to Commons with GWT were not allowed a
few months ago by sysops, when i had to upload 2000 images from the Peace
I was in some GWToolset talks in last Wikimania.
Congratulations for the tool and the project.
Following I'll explain 2 cases in which it is necessary to upload files to
Commons but I'm afraid that, by now, GWToolset it is not still the solution.
Then this is a call for alternative options to do it.
 Case 1: Illustraciència
Illustraciència is a Scientific Illustration Award promoted by ACCC
(Catalan Science Communicators Association).
By an agreement with them when the participants submit the images they can
choose the option to "liberate with CC-by-sa to upload to Commons".
In the last edition 200 participants chose this option.
Now they need to upload it, but they don't have a database online, only
high resolution files in a computer folder and posts in a WP blog with low
Commonist it is not the option neither the UploadWizard, because every
image have a different author.
There is any solution for them now? And for the future Award editions?
 Case 2: local archives
I'm in contact with two local communities archives in two
neighbourhoods in Barcelona area. They have lots of photos of the
evolution, social events and historical struggles for political and civil
The idea is to upload several collections of 100 or 200 photos with similar
subjects but from different authors (they will do a task of contacting
copyright holders to liberate it). Again Commonist and UploadWizard are not
the adequate tools and uploading one by one could be hard and would make
What we can do in this cases?
There is an option to do that?
Thanks in advance;
I just started as a technical assistant for Wikimedia Finland and my
task is to teach GWToolset among other things. However, I have some
problems with it since nothing gets uploaded to the Commons Beta.
Here is one record from my XML:
<dc:subject>The lady of the Ainola household sitting resting
in the sun</dc:subject>
<dc:source lang="en">The Finnish Museum of Photography</dc:source>
<dc:source lang="fi">Suomen valokuvataiteen museo</dc:source>
Is there something wrong with it? Everything goes well to the final
stage without errors but nothing is uploaded. Also the domain
staticflickr.com seems to be on the whitelist.
Maybe you could help a newcomer little bit?
