It seems you also asked this at the Wikipedia Help Desk (which, in my opinion, is really a better resource for Wikipedia questions). The answer you got, which seems to suit your needs, was: Over at dumps.wikimedia.org is a link to a compressed "all-titles.gz" file containing the names of all pages at Commons. That would take an hour or two to download at ...

Here is the URL pattern: https://wma.wmflabs.org/iframe.html?wma= <latitude>_<longitude>_<width>_<height>_commons_<zoomlevel>_<language> &globe=Earth&lang=<language> <width> and <height> seem to have no effect. Example around the White House: https://wma.wmflabs.org/iframe.html?wma=38.8977_-...

As of September 2015, Wikimedia Commons hosts about 62.5 TB of media files (not counting old revisions). On Wikimedia Commons, there is a special page that provides a breakdown of the total size of Wikimedia Commons by the file-type. Adding them up will give you the total size of Wikimedia Commons. There is also an SQL query that can give you the total size ...

You can sort by size in catscan (by Magnus Manske, the creator of MediaWiki): http://tools.wmflabs.org/catscan2/catscan2.php Berlin images sorted by size; or, more useful category, Quality images of Berlin sorted by size. You can't filter by width, but file size is a good approximation, there's a width column and you can pick the appropriate category. ...

This is possible on Wikimedia Commons. Can I specify categories when searching? [...] To do this, just add +incategory:"CategoryName" to the search string. [...] For example, if you wanted to look for the purple things in the "Flowers" category, you'd use this: purple +incategory:"Flowers" Be warned that if you're trying this on a default or ...

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 ?

Yes, if you have a list of pages that you want to add to some category, AutoWikiBrowser can help you do that. But, as with any other mass change, you should have a consensus to do so, or the change should be uncontroversial. Also, to be able to use AWB on Commons, you need to be approved first, see Commons:AutoWikiBrowser for more information.

It's not directly possible to do that. But some wikis do have bots that can assist you with moving the items from the old category to the new one. For Commons-specific information, including how to request renaming both to run, see Commons:Rename a category. I expect other large wikis will have similar pages.

If you use the search query File: intitle:svg, you will get all files that have "svg" in their name. This will include files that do not have the .svg extension, but have svg in their name, but those should be rare.

If you are looking for an answer specifically for de.wikipedia.org then go to the Gadgets section of the preferences and activate the Gadget with the description "Überspringen der lokalen Dateibeschreibungsseite, um sofort nach Commons zu kommen." Note that this currently only works if you have Media Viewer disabled. To make this work on any wiki, or with ...

You can reference pictures with non-latin names in infoboxes and anywhere, no problem. Just use copy-paste like you would do for a latin characters URL.

Note: in this answer, I'm primarily talking about the English Wikipedia, because that's the one I'm most familiar with. This answer may not apply to other Wikimedia Foundation projects, and especially not to Wikimedia Commons, which is it's own minefield of copyright- and licensing issues. This answer comes in three parts: legal, technical, and policy. ...

You should ask this on en-wp, not here! see WP:PICTURE, you can use the methods described on that page for any kind of file name, just copy the complete file name and paste it in the wiki code. If you have more questions like this, see these pages on English Wikipedia: Wikipedia:Village pump Wikipedia:IRC

As far as I know, MediaWiki's standard installation does its search on the page syntax. So you may simply combine your key word with the category definition in parantheses: keyword "[[Category:keycategory]]"
