Bulk image uploads can be done on the server side using importImages.php: http://www.mediawiki.org/wiki/Manual:ImportImages.php You just have to provide a .txt file for each image giving its image description, i.e. 650 .txt files. Also the files have to be named appropriately, preferably with a prefix to avoid conflicts with existing file names. If you have a zip file in that form, then you can file a shell request in bugzilla.wikimedia.org for it to be imported. Alternatively you can use Commonist or some other automated client. -- Tim Starling _______________________________________________ Wikimediaau-l mailing list Wikimediaaufirstname.lastname@example.org https://lists.wikimedia.org/mailman/listinfo/wikimediaau-l
