In 2014, local upload was disabled for non-administrators on wikis which do not have a functional upload workflow. The uploader user right allows editors to bypass this restriction and upload files locally. Uploaders must still follow the image use policy and may not upload images for use in articles.

Requests for uploader

The uploader permission is granted on a need-to-use basis only, and will be removed once it is no longer needed. Requests for the permission should be posted to the administrators' noticeboard.
