Making some uploads from different users on behalf of the same wiki account

Hello,

Please could you tell me, if it’s possible to do uploads from different users on behalf of the same wiki account?

So let’s say I want all .png files (uploaded from different wiki accounts) to be seen as they were uploaded from a single account called “png_uploader”. Is it possible to do somehow?

Many thanks for your help

It is not supported in any clean way. You could probably change usernames in various skin/API hooks but probably a lot of effort to do and it will be fragile.
