Description とある白い猫 2006-06-26 17:23:29 UTC
I feel it would be logical and prudent for any person uploading to to give it a
uneque description. 

Multiple files with identical filenames with identical extensions are
problematic (example: Example.png and Example.pNg). Mediawiki currently allows
the upload of files with identical filenames and extension with only diference
being case diference. 

I see no use of having Example.png and its diferent variants (case diferences)
aside from inflicting confusion. I was also informed that there had been issues
of Wikia logos being the wrong case.

There is the matter of existing images requiring a rename... but that can be
dealt with later. Firtly we should prevent any newer images with wierd cases.

We got *tons* of images with .PNG or .JPG; eventually a script could clean up
'em all.
Comment 2 Michal Zlatkovsky 2006-06-26 17:33:13 UTC
I support this idea. I'd prefer having all the image names in lowercase, but
even partial solution like preventing uppercase filename extensions would be good.
