Administrators and uploaders are able to upload files on (this site), while regular users cannot. This was done to reduce the increasing amount of junk and copyright violations present in MediaWiki files (and reduce the existing ones), while allowing users who have a legitimate need to continue uploading files here.

Most free images can easily be uploaded to Wikimedia Commons. is not the place to upload non-free images.

Users requiring the ability to upload locally on should post a request at Project:Requests.

  • Überschreiben einer vorhandenen Datei (reupload)
