Hi 334a, I see you did some corrections to this map. Can I ask you to make one more correction? In this map, South Africa should be yellow rather than orange, as the majority of its population has Bantu languages, not Indo-European languages, as its native tongues. Thanks in advance, Steinbach 08:19, 24 August 2007 (UTC)
Tip: Categorizing images
Thanks a lot for contributing to the Wikimedia Commons! Here's a tip to make your uploads more useful: Why not add some categories to describe them? This will help more people to find and use them.
1) If you're using the UploadWizard, you can add categories to each file when you describe it. Just click "more options" for the file and add the categories which make sense:
2) You can also pick the file from your list of uploads, edit the file description page, and manually add the category code at the end of the page.
- [[Category:Category name]]
For example, if you are uploading a diagram showing the orbits of comets, you add the following code:
- [[Category:Astronomical diagrams]]
When picking categories, try to choose a specific category ("Astronomical diagrams") over a generic one ("Illustrations"). Pro-tip: The CommonSense tool can help you find the best category for your image.

Inkscape black rectangles
That's due to the Inskscape "flowtext" botched mess -- you should blame the Inkscape programmers who continue to refuse to remove a software "feature" that many of them know to be stupid, rather than blaming yourself. You can diagnose the problem before uploading at Commons:SVG Check. I'll take a look at the file... AnonMoos (talk) 18:33, 19 October 2011 (UTC)
