MediaWiki:Uploadtext

Definition from Wiktionary, the free dictionary
Jump to: navigation, search
Only upload an image here if it is already on the Commons and it is needed for Wiktionary infrastructure. Examples of such images are Copyright.svg, Wikipedia-logo.png, Lautrec a corner in a dance hall 1892.jpg and Symbol support vote.svg.


Attention niels epting.svg STOP! Please upload image, sound and media files to Commons, so that all projects can use them.

Before you upload here, make sure to read and follow the image use policy.

If a file with the name you are specifying already exists on the wiki, it'll be replaced without warning. So unless you mean to update a file, it's a good idea to first check if such a file exists.

To view or search previously uploaded images, go to the list of uploaded images. Uploads and deletions are logged on the upload log.

Use the form below to upload new image files for use in illustrating your entries. On most browsers, you will see a "Browse..." button, which will bring up your operating system's standard file open dialog. Choosing a file will fill the name of that file into the text field next to the button. You must also check the box affirming that you are not violating any copyrights by uploading the file. Press the "Upload" button to finish the upload. This may take some time if you have a slow internet connection.

The preferred formats are JPEG for photographic images, PNG for drawings and other iconic images, and OGG for sounds. Please name your files descriptively to avoid confusion. For pronunciations, use language code hyphen region code hyphen word dot ogg. To include the image in an entry, use a link in the form [[image:file.jpg]] or [[image:file.png|alt text]] or [[media:file.ogg]] for sounds. Note also the {{audio|en-us-sample.ogg|Audio pronunciation}} template for sounds. Also note that uploads of audio files are usually better uploaded at commons:special:upload, where other projects can use them.

Please note that as with wiki pages, others may edit or delete your uploads if they think it serves the dictionary, and you may be blocked from uploading if you abuse the system.
