Wikimedia has migrated from Bugzilla to Phabricator. Bug reports should be created and updated in Wikimedia Phabricator instead. Please create an account in Phabricator and add your Bugzilla email address to it.
Wikimedia Bugzilla is read-only. If you try to edit or create any bug report in Bugzilla you will be shown an intentional error message.
In order to access the Phabricator task corresponding to a Bugzilla report, just remove "static-" from its URL.
You could still run searches in Bugzilla or access your list of votes but bug reports will obviously not be up-to-date in Bugzilla.

Description David Benbennick 2005-08-09 20:34:51 UTC
At the Commons, we have a lot of images that match the regular 
expression
   ^[[:digit:]]+px-
See, for example,
   http://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/Category:Images_for_cleanup
Virtually without exception, these are MediaWiki's thumbnails that 
users have accidentally downloaded from some other Wikimedia site, 
and uploaded at the Commons.  When uploading an file whose title 
matches the above expression, we'd like a warning similar to 
the "file with this name exists already" warning, that would say 
something like
  This appears to be a thumbnail that you just downloaded from 
  another Wikimedia site.  Please go back and get the
  full-resolution version to upload here.
With the same "Save file" and "Re-upload" options.

See

http://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/Commons:Village_pump#Disallow_image
s_that_start_with_600px-

for a discussion.

Bug 3069 has been marked WONTFIX, so I'm reopening this bug.  On the Commons we
*really* need the UI to be more forgiving of this common human error.  If they
aren't going to be outright disallowed, at least MediaWiki should be able to
display a prominent warning.
