I've tried to apply this recipe: Getting the RSS feed for Wikipedia articles I've created to see the files I've uploaded recently on Commons (e.g: this file ). But I cannot see any log in:


It says:

There are no results for this report.

(I tried this the day I've uploaded my pictures).

Is it me or is it a bug from Wikipedia?

You're requesting NewPages, but an upload may not be counted as a page..

How about this - http://commons.wikimedia.org/w/api.php?action=feedcontributions&user=Plindenbaum&feedformat=atom ?


Special:NewPages does not show all new pages, but only the recent ones.

Right now, the earliest thing you can see is from 9 January 2012.

Your file has been uploaded on 4 September 2011‎, so no wonder it is not shown in New Pages.

Use eug's trick to get the list you want. You can use the Atom protocol to get more or less results, or get earlier results. Use a RSS reader or write your own HTTP requests.
