RADIAL WAVES STILL LIVE!


How to post on Wikipedia « on: March 20, 2020, 01:40:38 PM » Author: CreeRSW207
I am trying to post on the street light page but it says I need to create a page but I won't let me proceed. How can I fix this?

What page are you attempting to create?  Is it a new article?  Do you have Wikipedia account?

I use this https://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/Main_Page to upload pictures and whatnot and put them in the appropriate category.  You can use this "Upload file" on the left side column.  I have frequently uploaded stuff there Smiley

That's interesting.  I didn't have problem uploading pictures when I started a few years ago Huh?

Probably too many users uploading inappropriately back then and then they had to changed the policy Huh?

Go to Wikimedia Commons page and click on numbers of media files at the top of the main page.  Click on List of members at the Registered users field.  Type in your screen name at 'Display users starting at:' field and see what status you are.  At the moment, I am listed as 'Autopatroller' since I frequently add/manage/change the category part for a while.  I did upload some good pictures a while back before promoting to this status Huh?

You might want to contact them to see what they have to say about your uploading request.
