This sounds like an odd advice starting from someone asking about
simultaneous image upload to commons. Nikita, you can use a tool like the
commonist for simultaneous upload -

http://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/Commons:Tools/Commonist

or ask an admin in #wikimedia-commons

I'm not sure why you are promoting Sysadmin access to new individuals who
are asking about simultaneous image uploads, I would imagine those are
order of magnitude, apart from each other.

If you want to offer sysadmin access to new individuals without even a
mention of their qualification or even a user account. How can I say
anything?
