Templates are used to add recurring messages to pages in a consistent way, to create navigational boxes, and to provide cross-language portability of texts. The content of a template can be added to a page by typing {{templatename}}. The "Template:" prefix doesn't need to be included. The first character (only) is not case-sensitive, so {{delete}} and {{Delete}} are the same.

In the gallery namespace (also referred to as mainspace, the main namespace, or the article namespace in Wikipedia), templates exist only to help readers. These can include navigation aids and warnings that content is sub-standard. Templates that provide information only of service to editors belong on a gallery's talk page.

If you wish to experiment with templates, you may do so in the Sandbox.

{{Category for discussion|ABC}}
links talk view

Nuvola apps tree question.svg This category is being discussed in accordance with Commons's Categories for discussion policies. This nomination is part of a discussion of several related categories. This does not mean that any of the pages or files in the category will be deleted. They may, however, be recategorized.

Please share your thoughts on the matter at [[Commons:Categories for discussion/{{{year}}}/{{{month}}}/ABC|this category's entry]] on the Categories for discussion page.

Please do not empty the category or remove this notice while the discussion is in progress.

After saving the category page with {{subst:Cfd}}, please use this link to start the discussion page.

{{Move|ABC}}
links talk view

It has been proposed to move Commons:Templates to Category:ABC
Reason: Missing. Please add an explanation for the request to the template, e.g. |2= as [[:en:ABC]]
Date: Missing. Please add the following to the template: |3=2014-12-25
Objections and discussion have their place at Commons talk:Templates (two weeks are considered as adequate time for possible objections). See Commons:Rename a category for general information and policy.
  • If the proposed rename is clearly uncontroversial or consensus-decided, place the bot command (see below) at User talk:CommonsDelinker/commands to be handled by SieBot or rename it and move the content manually. If the new destination category exists, you can remove this template, replacing it with {{category redirect|ABC}}.
  • If the proposal is clearly or potentially controversial or requires a broader discussion, you can transfer the discussion to Commons:Categories for discussion (replacing this template with {{subst:cfd}})
  • If the proposal is clearly nonsensical, mistaken or consensually rejected, please remove this template.

Warning: processing period depends on activity of Commons volunteers. Some proposals (especially with unclear reason or too weak support) stay waiting for many months to be handled.

Bot command: {{move cat|Templates|ABC|reason=}}
Difference in words:
Commons:Templates
+
Category:ABC
Difference in characters:
Commons:Templates
+
Category:ABC


  • Usage: {{Move|new name|reason}} - for categories (only!) which should be renamed.
  • Mass category renames should be listed on COM:CFD.

This category is located at Category:ABC

Note: This category should be empty. Any content should be recategorised.
This tag should be used on existing categories that are likely to be used by others, even though the "real" category is elsewhere. Redirected categories should be empty and not categorised themselves. It should not be used on categories that are misspellings and thus unlikely to be used by other people. Such categories should be tagged as: {{badname|Category:correct name}}.
Administrators: Use {{move cat|Templates|ABC}} on User:CommonsDelinker/commands to move a large number of images

Personality rights warning

Although this work is freely licensed or in the public domain, the person(s) shown may have rights that legally restrict certain re-uses unless those depicted consent to such uses. In these cases, a model release or other evidence of consent could protect you from infringement claims. Though not obliged to do so, the uploader may be able to help you to obtain such evidence.

{{FOP}}

Warning: The subject of this image is believed to be protected by copyright.

It is believed that the taking, uploading and reuse of this derivative work is permitted under the copyright law of the country in which the photograph was taken, possibly with some restrictions, because the subject was permanently located in a public place. In Germany, this exception is known as Panoramafreiheit; many other countries have similar exceptions which are referred to on Commons by the generic term "freedom of panorama".

Freedom of panorama does not apply in all countries, and often applies only to photographs of buildings that are permanently located in a public place. In some countries the freedom may apply more broadly. It may or may not extend to sculptures and/or to subjects that are not in a "public place" but are in a "place to which the public has access". The allowed usage of this picture, if any, depends upon the laws of the country of creation, and may also depend on the laws of the country in which the derived image is to be used. See Commons:Freedom of panorama for a country by country list.

Before reusing this content, ensure that you have the right to do so. You are solely responsible for ensuring that you do not infringe someone else's copyrights. See our general disclaimer for more information.

If you have added this template to an image description page, remember that in most cases it should be accompanied by an acknowledgement of source.
