Description Danny B. 2008-05-14 11:14:19 UTC
Create MediaWiki:Upload-description which will pre-fill the wpUploadDescription <textarea> in Special:Upload.
Comment 1 Brion Vibber 2008-05-15 20:48:42 UTC
That would probably be very annoying as a general case, as it would badly spam re-uploads.
Comment 2 Danny B. 2008-05-15 21:01:22 UTC
I didn't emphasize it's meant for first upload not for re-uploads.
Comment 3 Siebrand Mazeland 2010-04-12 21:40:13 UTC
Closed WONTFIX per comment 1.
Comment 4 Platonides 2010-04-12 21:48:22 UTC
Since commons is using javascript to fill it, prefilling the description for first upload is a valid use case.
Commons may not benefit from it due to language issues, but other wikis would be able to.
Comment 5 Alex Monk 2012-07-24 13:40:18 UTC
What would the default text be? Nothing?
Comment 6 Platonides 2012-07-24 18:57:22 UTC
I suppose so. MediaWiki:upload-default-description ?
Comment 7 Gerrit Notification Bot 2013-08-09 21:49:01 UTC
Change 78468 had a related patch set uploaded by Brian Wolff:
Add optional message to define default description for Upload
Comment 8 Bartosz Dziewoński 2013-09-15 19:30:55 UTC
It will now be possible to edit [[MediaWiki:Upload-default-description]] to set the default text after Brian's patch gets deployed. Closing as fixed.
Comment 9 Gerrit Notification Bot 2013-09-15 19:38:57 UTC
