The JIRA system site has an insecure connexion, dare-for I write here.

When uploading I get the message ERROR:0. I can not find an explanation, and I therefore do not know what's wrong.

It's about: Catedral Santa María La Menor and plaza, Santo Domingo, circa 1901, 1.jpg

| Description = {{en|$DESCRIPTOR$}}
| Date = circa 1901 (also with 07-01-2017 the error)

I believe JIRA is long gone along the Toolserver itself. I have replaced the bug reporting message with a link to the Bitbucket repo's issue tracker. Magnus Manske, could you correct it if it is not the best place to point people to? --Base (talk) 21:39, 21 November 2017 (UTC)

Can't log in with OAuthEdit

Hi, I can't log in with OAuth on and someone else too. Is this a known issue? Thanks, Yann (talk) 20:22, 5 July 2017 (UTC)

The OAuth is working for me. Could you try again please? --Magnus Manske (talk) 08:01, 6 July 2017 (UTC)
@Magnus Manske: I can't log in either, even when I click "Allow". It just sends me back to the URL2Commons menu like nothing happened, and it still says I need to login. Lizardcreator (talk) 01:42, 28 May 2022 (UTC)

Uploading mp3 filesEdit

@Magnus Manske: URL2Commons gives an error when the target filename has a .mp3 extension, even if the user has the rights to upload them. Could you take a look? Thanks! John P. Sadowski (NIOSH) (talk) 03:42, 11 July 2020 (UTC)

"webp" is not a supported file nameEdit

@Magnus Manske: Hello, I tried to upload an image for c:Category:Screenshots of Freedoom from which all of them are in the format "webp", but it fails: ""webp" is not a supported file name!" can you please check and fix this problem? thanks.--Editor-1 (talk) 00:40, 14 August 2020 (UTC)

@User:Magnus Manske If you don't want or don't have time to fix it now, just please say it so I will try to find another way or tool, thanks.--Editor-1 (talk) 23:35, 14 August 2020 (UTC)

Unspecified errorEdit

I've posted my error query at the Commons help desk. As I don't want to start a parallel discussion, could those who watch this page please respond there? Schwede66 (talk) 05:03, 30 January 2021 (UTC)

Form fields should be readonly until logged inEdit

Users will fill out the form before logging in, despite the warning.

So the form fields should be readonly until logged in. Jidanni (talk) 13:14, 19 August 2021 (UTC)

Mention that spaces in file names are allowedEdit

Users will get an error message with Qingfu St. 15 person mailbox side Qingfu St. 15 person mailbox front

They will think spaces are not allowed.

In fact all they need is .jpg at the end: Qingfu St. 15 person mailbox side.jpg Qingfu St. 15 person mailbox front.jpg
