I get this for every single image in the queue and no way to ignore it for all of them:

INFO:pywiki:Uploading file to commons:commons via API....
Uploading file to commons:commons via API....
INFO:pywiki:Got warning message:
Got warning message:
Do you want to ignore? ([y]es, [N]o)

Updating to the last git revision (compat aka trunk) didn't help; I'm now hacking to ignore all warnings (ignoreWarning=True) but if that fails I'll just use flickr2commons (which however doesn't fit my case very well). --Nemo 11:53, 5 September 2013 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Windows how to[edit]

  1. Install Python 2.7.x
  2. open cmd.exe
  3. Type C:\Python27\python.exe -m pip install "flickrapi==1.4.5"
  4. Pres enter and wait for the package to load and install succesfully.
  5. Type C:\Python27\python.exe C:\Path or place where the pwb-file is located\ flickrripper
    • Make sure to replace the bold text with the location of the file. E.g. C:\Users\Jonatan\Desktop\pywikibot\core\

If cmd.exe says at anytime C:\Python27\python.exe: No module named pip, please do the following before retrying the last step;

  1. Go to
  2. Right click on the page and press "Save page/file as"
  3. Save the file
  4. In cmd.exe type C:\Python27\python.exe C:\path\to\
    • Replace path\to with the path to where you downloaded the file (e.g. C:\User\Name\Downloads\
  5. Go back to the last step in the guide above and retry the step which caused this error.
