File upload on test2wiki

Summary by Dereckson

test2wiki allows file upload, is that behavior is what we want? (talkcontribs) (talkcontribs)

If the files are not free they have to be deleted, as fair use cannot be established. If the files are free, they can be uploaded to Commons.

Perhaps someone uses it to test UploadWizard?

Maybe sufficient to restrict to admins. Normal users still can use testwiki, the primary test wiki, which also has many more admins to handle copyvios.

Also, since many wikis restrict upload to admins, it might be worth having a testwiki with restricted upload. (talkcontribs)

Rephrase, create Phab?: - upload open to group user. As of now the counter for uploaded files on Special:Statistics for test2wiki is at 126 files and that for testwiki at 3,524 files, the latter is more files than 83% of the 'real' Wikipedias have. Suggest to restrict upload on test2wiki to group admin and uploader. Rational: 1) Reduce likelihood of copyvio and clean-up work for admins. testwiki already has upload open to group user, so that one might be sufficient for open testing. 2) It might be good to have test2wiki as one restricted upload test environment.
