Just a suggestion, but perhaps your webmaster could enable a redirect here for those who don't have upload privileges. I can imagine some people just hitting a brick wall otherwise. PistolPete 14:27, 30 May 2007 (EDT)

I agree--I had to find out about this page from another helpful user, U.U. I'd at least like to see this on the Helpful Links template. A better place would be preferred.

disappointment

I must admit I am disappointed by this turn of events. I will now re-reconsider my involvement with this project. I feel having this level of censorship and direct control to be upsetting. I will work out my future on C/P over the upcoming weekend. Hannibal ad portas 20:59, 30 May 2007 (EDT)

Attention needed

Can someone please upload these images. Can't proceed with editing without them. --Krysg 15:37, 31 March 2009 (EDT)

Request for upload the pics

CP:IUR redirect

Hey all. I just created a redirect page to this one titled CP:IUR that directly redirects to this one. I did this in order to make it easier for users to access this page, or just plainly easier and faster to type (it took me a while to remember 'Image upload requests'). Hopefully this will be an improvement.Korvex (talk) 13:44, 10 May 2017 (EDT)

Image licenses - may start prioritizing uploads

Hi folks,
as you've probably seen, we seem to have a constant backlog of upload requests. In a way, that's a good sign--you folks are working to make high-quality articles with graphics included. However, I am not keeping up with these requests. This is in large part due to the fact that many of the images being requested are not freely available for reuse. This means I must spend time trying to find who created the image requested, and finding their copyright terms. I end up unhappy because I'm making little progress and wasting time, while you are unhappy at needing to wait so long. Additionally, this impacts even those who request images which are clearly free to use, because I am working through the list in the order they were requested.

It would be greatly appreciated if you would try to request images from sources which clearly define favorable licensing terms (Public Domain is best, but Creative Commons licenses are also great). I am also considering starting to upload such freely available images first, regardless of the order in which they were received. This way I can get these quick requests done before getting bogged down in researching the legal status of the other requested images which are under copyright. This way, those who are requesting such images don't get stuck waiting weeks, or even months, while I work through the difficult requests before them. This possibility was discussed before, but I welcome input.
Lastly, if you don't know where to find such images, here are some places you can start looking: (the top two are my favorites)

Thanks! --DavidB4 (TALK) 19:05, 27 January 2020 (EST)

Bing Images is also great for finding images to request, so long as the search results are limited by license after entering an initial search. --Liberaltears (talk) 20:52, 6 March 2020 (EST)
Bing can be a good resource, but as a couple people have noted, it also makes a lot of mistakes. It's fine to use it as a starting point, but just because a result is shown under that filter, does not mean that it is actually usable. You'll typically need to investigate further on the source website to find out if it is actually under a free license. --DavidB4 (TALK) 16:30, 22 April 2020 (EDT)
Speaking of priorities, if anyone is looking to get an image uploaded for a particularly time-sensitive article, feel free to mention that on my talk page. I'd be willing to make one or two requests a priority if, for example, it is related to current events of national interest. --DavidB4 (TALK) 13:12, 24 August 2020 (EDT)
