Tip: Categorizing images[edit]

Hello, Cnbrb!

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.

Trains & train interiors[edit]

Hi. Can you please not add cats such as "British Rail Class 313" to cats such as "Trains of London Overground" - not all 313s are LO, and there's a subcat for 313s of LO, which is already a subcat of Trains of LO. Understand that such train categorisation is an ongoing job because there are a lot of train photos on Commons, but we're doing our best to have a consistent system. Admittedly it can create redundant categories, when one train class has only ever operated by a single company, but in general it creates a comprehensive and clear category scheme. -mattbuck (Talk) 12:07, 27 May 2010 (UTC)

Hi, sorry, I was tidying up an over-populated category and these were actually in the top-level London Overground category, which is over-populated. I moved them down a level but I see there is a more precise category already there, and I should simply have removed them. Sorry about that. All sorted now? Cnbrb (talk) 12:27, 27 May 2010 (UTC)
Yeah, no worries. I moved a load of 378s out of the top cat for you while I was at it. -mattbuck (Talk) 12:41, 27 May 2010 (UTC)

File:UK high speed rail map.png[edit]

Hi,

This is a great map. I noticed that the section of track within the channel tunnel (between Folkestone and Calais, where the speed is limited to 160 km/h) is marked red. Is this just a schematic, or would you be willing to change the colour of the line where it passes under the channel to indicate that the line is not technically a high-speed rail line within the tunnel? Rnt20 (talk) 18:05, 2 September 2011 (UTC)

Yes, good point. It's done. Cnbrb (talk) 10:29, 8 November 2011 (UTC)

Also this is a map of high speed rail in the UK. Northern Ireland should be included as it is a constituent part of the UK. Iainturnerisgod (talk) 12:34, 13 November 2012 (UTC)
I agree & understand about NI and am happy tp shade in NI appropriately. However, railway articles tend to treat Great Britain and Ireland separately for historical reasons - see the Rail transport in the United Kingdom article. I wonder if the article should really be about GB only to be consistent with the other rail articles. That's all - no political commentary intended! (I wouldn't dare! :-) ) Cnbrb (talk) 13:03, 13 November 2012 (UTC)
Hmm yeah. This map here http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/File:WCML_ECML_Midlands.png shows the whole UK and other maps show just GB when presenting info about railways. I think that either the article needs to be moved to 'High speed rail in Great Britain' or Northern Ireland needs to be added to the map. I also dont know whether the scottish plans announced this week for a high speed link between Glasgow and Edinburgh are at an advanced enough stage to add that route to the map? probably not just yet I would think. Iainturnerisgod (talk) 22:41, 13 November 2012 (UTC)
Doubt it - it's all very vague right now! Cnbrb (talk) 01:21, 14 November 2012 (UTC)

London Midland livery[edit]

Hi. Images like File:Watford Junction railway station MMB 15 321415.jpg do not show London Midland livery. It's a London Midland train, but Silverlink livery. -mattbuck (Talk) 16:16, 20 August 2013 (UTC)

Oh, sorry, my mistake. Wasn't looking very closely. If you haven't done so already, I'll revert any mistakes, sorry about that. Cnbrb (talk) 16:58, 20 August 2013 (UTC)

Transport Maps[edit]

Hi there. I'm a huge admirer of the maps that you have created using OpenStreetMap such as File:Bromley north line connections.png and I was wondering how you do them. Do you use an external programme and if so, what? How do you get the background image from OSM? They realy are fantastic and I would love to be able to do it myself. Thanks. 07bargem (talk) 16:24, 24 November 2013 (UTC)

Oh thank you! They're Photoshop jobs - bits drawn in layers over the top. The background image is just a screengrab of the OSM (or several pasted together). I found it effective to desaturate the background and raise the brightness so the top level illustration would stand out.Cnbrb (talk) 12:31, 25 November 2013 (UTC)

Nickey Line[edit]

From the map of the Nickey Line between Harpenden and Hemel Hempstead please delete "Duckhall Gasworks Halt". Despite extensive research I have been unable to find a station with that name. The section of line between Hemel Hempstead and Heath Park Halt never carried a passenger service so there was no requirement for a station.!!! Steamybrian2 (talk) 20:47, 7 July 2014 (UTC)

OK, I have taken out the halt, but retained the gasworks label for clarity. Hope this is better. Cnbrb (talk) 13:22, 11 August 2014 (UTC)

Photo[edit]

Hi I used one of you photos here. If you want me to remove it or something, leave a message on my wikipedia talk page: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/User_talk:Staglit

Absolutely no problem - that's what commons photos are for. Thanks for letting me know. Just happy to see my contributions coming in useful.  :-) Keep up the good work. Cnbrb (talk) 14:37, 6 August 2014 (UTC)

Passenger ferries in Scotland map[edit]

There are a few issues with this map. Firstly Stranraer is not in Northern Ireland and no longer has a ferry service. The map is missing out all the inter island routes of Shetland and Orkney . Thirdly I think that the showing just one discontinued route is misleading as there are many routes that have existed in the past e.g to Norway.--FDent (talk) 16:34, 14 September 2014 (UTC)

Hi - thank you - what a stupid mistake, thank you for pointing that out! Whilst moving labels around to replace Stranraer with Cairnyan, I obviously moved Stranraer across the sea instead of labelling it Belfast. As for Shetland & Orkney, can you point me in the right direction - are they Northlink or independent operators? I'll do my best to include them. Cheers Cnbrb (talk) 13:36, 15 September 2014 (UTC)
