Tip: Categorizing images[edit]

Hello, Cmglee!

Tip: Add categories to your 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.

Here's how:

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:

Uploadwizard-categories.png

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]]
[[Category:Comets]]

This will make the diagram show up in the categories "Astronomical diagrams" and "Comets".

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.

Thanks again for your uploads! More information about categorization can be found in Commons:Categories, and don't hesitate to leave a note on the help desk.

Your image uploads[edit]

It is not a good idea to add photographer name into the filename. Credits are given in the image description ("Author"). Regards. Materialscientist (talk) 23:46, 25 July 2012 (UTC)

Hi I note that you have renamed a large number of my and other contributors' uploads under this Commons:FR#reasons:
# Aim Examples (old name) Examples (new name)
3. Correct misleading names into accurate ones File:MY_CUTE_MOUSE.JPG
File:1BIGGest_nOSE_everS33n.JPG
File:Dutch_pet_rabbit.jpg
File:John_Doe_at_concert.jpg
I do not see how prefixing my ID makes it a misleading name. It is certainly not what the examples illustrate. Can you point me to a Wikimedia guideline stating that IDs are not allowed in filenames?
The issue is not credit but to keep the filenames unique. E.g. being a popular subject, there could be any number of images called File:London_Aquatics_Centre_interior.jpg while File:cmglee_London_Aquatics_Centre_interior.jpg is much more likely to be unique and would almost certainly not clash with an existing file.
cmglee (talk) 13:24, 29 July 2012 (UTC)
Thanks for bringing this up. The renames were proposed by user:BaldBoris and I agreed with him, but you are correct that this is not reflected in the renaming guidelines, and you can claim the files should be moved back. I'm looking into the relevant guidelines and will get back to this. Cheers. Materialscientist (talk) 23:00, 29 July 2012 (UTC)
Thanks for your understanding. As there's a more thorough discussion at Commons:Administrators'_noticeboard#ID_in_filenames_.2F_User:Materialscientist, let's continue there. cmglee (talk) 11:21, 30 July 2012 (UTC)

Dice Distribution[edit]

On File:Dice Distribution (bar).svg, could you remove the strange numbers on the left that don't line up with the values of the p.m.f.? And maybe move the fractions to the left axis? I would, but I can't get my Inkscape to do anything with it. Dicklyon (talk) 03:31, 29 April 2013 (UTC)

The numbers are not strange at all: they are probabilities in decimal representation (where the scale on the right is in fractions). They are useful to allow different distributions to be compared, as in File:Dice sum central limit theorem.svg. cmglee (talk) 08:58, 29 April 2013 (UTC)
But they're not being used for that, and multiples of 0.02 are strange when unrelated to anything useful. Dicklyon (talk) 19:42, 29 April 2013 (UTC)
Dicklyon, I don’t get what you’re talking about. The axis on the left is a completely normal decimal axis as used in any and all graphs. It is useful for the same reason and purpose as it is in all other graphs. The fractions are nice for the exact value, but the decimals are what give me the real feeling of magnitude. They should stay. — Timwi (talk) 23:11, 29 April 2013 (UTC)

File:MH370 map.svg[edit]

An excellent image, Cmglee. But, as my secondary school Geography teacher used to remind us (with tedious regularity): "a map isn't a map without a compass and a scale." I'm not sure you would necessarily agree with that statement. But - is there any chance of you adding a scale? (I think we can guess China is in the North). Many thanks. Martinevans123 (talk) 15:12, 11 March 2014 (UTC)

Thanks for your feedback, Martinevans123. They are valid points for large-scale maps indeed. On maps covering a significant part of the world's surface, however, having a scale would be misleading, as different parts of the map have different scales (the usual problem of representing a spherical surface on a flat plane). I also think that this part of the world is well-known enough that the reader can surmise that north is up. Many other maps on Wikipedia and other sites do not indicate north unless the direction was unobvious or "up" wasn't north for some reason. cmglee (talk) 20:46, 11 March 2014 (UTC)
Thanks. "I think we can guess China is in the North". I see we already have another contributor at that article. I thought your map was very clear. Martinevans123 (talk) 22:14, 11 March 2014 (UTC)
