Description Robert Rohde 2007-07-21 03:28:18 UTC
I would like to suggest that an optional setting be added to create a software error if someone tries to upload an image with a blank description.

Not necessary in my view.  This is the kind of thing best handled on a case-by-case basis.  I see insufficient value to add this to the software, especially as Yet Another Configuration Option.  It certainly can't be always true without a config option, either: unacceptable for small wikis, where the uploader might legitimately not feel a description is needed.  Recommend WONTFIX.

If you really need to do so, use JS for checking of the upload form.
