Community Wishlist Survey 2019/Multimedia and Commons/Uploaded files visible in the gallery

  • Problem: Currently we can see our uploaded files as a list. Sometimes for searching a some file the mouse overheats from page scrolling. I think it would be a better solution to create the last uploaded files in the form of a gallery.
  • Who would benefit: All users.
  • Proposed solution: Create the last uploaded files in the form of a gallery

This would be more useful as a category, so that all images of a user would ba accessible to Cat-a-lot. This would e.g. be helpful when new users throw too many images in too many categories. So why not just a hidden category for every user? With the sorting feature requested before one could order them by upload date. Watchduck (talk) 18:26, 4 November 2018 (UTC)[reply]

Watchduck; In this proposal, I am more concerned with the clarity of the "Uploads" page. The solution proposed by you is good, but I would consider it as a separate proposition. Tournasol7 (talk) 18:45, 4 November 2018 (UTC)[reply]
Overwritten images would probably be too much of a blind spot of the category approach, so I retract that. But it would be great to have Cat-a-lot support on the uploads page. Watchduck (talk) 09:51, 5 November 2018 (UTC)[reply]

My mouse never overheats, but I like the idea. Jürgen Eissink (talk) 00:28, 5 November 2018 (UTC).[reply]
