I had trouble doing more than 1 session of 40 pictures. Is there an open issue going further on Android, or is this just me having this issue?

Hrm. It's not by design and we can't reproduce the problem. It could be a memory issue in the app. We'll try to see if we can figure it out.

Dmitry Brant (talkcontribs)

There shouldn't be any limit on the number of pictures you can go through. The issue you're seeing might be because of a low-memory issue on your device. At the moment this feature is not totally optimal, as it loads all of the image suggestions into memory at once. Depending on your type of device, and what other apps might be running in the background, this feature's high memory usage might be triggering an out-of-memory condition. Future updates to the feature will optimize memory usage.

After completing 70 tasks yesterday, it now just gives me this error every time I try again.

Tried reinstalling the app to see if it made any difference and now the task is gone from Suggested edits altogether. Oh well.

Thanks for reporting the problem!

The task has now returned. It still gives me the same error message. However, it now also says this underneath the error:

The task now works again. I made no changes that I know of to make it work.

Anders Feder (talkcontribs)

Aaand now the error is back. No error message. Safe to say it's periodic.

Johan (WMF) (talkcontribs)

The team is aware of the issue and will see if they can figure out what's causing it.

When trying to launch the daily task I get an error message. This happens only if I use German as the first language in the app. After switching to English the session starts without problems.

Thanks for the report, Matthias. Could you please share the error message to us?

Matthias.Wolf (talkcontribs)

It just says "Es ist ein Fehler aufgetreten" and I can click on the button to go back to the suggested edits start screen. The app version is 2.7.50355-r-2021-05-05. After closing the app completely the task seems to be working again. I remember the first time the error occurred when I was at step 8 of 10. So it might be an issue on the sending side.

CFeng (WMF) (talkcontribs)

Thank you. Looks like something went wrong when submitting the data, we will try to reproduce and fix the issue soon.

Johan (WMF) (talkcontribs)

Thanks for the report!

The answer suggestions are lacking one important option: "The license of this image does not allow usage in this Wikipedia language version". This is especially the case for images that are PD in the US but not in other countries.

Thanks for sharing this, I will flag it with the team for the post-MVP version of the feature.

I think it'd be nice if the daily goal was a little more dynamic. Right now, once you get to 10, it sorta sends the message "okay, nice job, you're done now, you should quit". It'd probably get people to contribute more if it instead asked "want to continue?" and set the goal ten higher if you say yes.

JTanner (WMF) (talkcontribs)

This is really great feedback! Thanks for sharing this, we will consider this for the post-MVP version of the feature.
