If you use that kind of thing my preferences -> gadgets -> HotCat is very useful indeed. Thanks for the work - cheers --Herby talk thyme 15:55, 18 September 2008 (UTC)

The Swale ->River Swale[edit]

Dave, you have helpfully tried to sort out the classification of The Swale, Kent. But I believe you should revert it as there is no River Swale, in Kent. Referring to w:The Swale you will see that:

The name The Swale refers to the strip of sea separating North Kent from the Isle of Sheppey.

Over to You. ClemRutter (talk) 16:20, 21 September 2008 (UTC)

The subcategory question- I haven't a clue! So I vote for the status quo. We include the Thames- which is marginal- it is tidal till the barrier so technically may be sea/ so we could include The Swale. If The Swale doesn't go there- where do we hook it? 8600 years ago it was a River. It had the same status as the Wantsum Channel. Speed 1610 shows the Medway joining the West Swale and the West Swale joining the Thames. Let sleeping dogs etc. ClemRutter (talk) 22:38, 23 September 2008 (UTC)

Category:Rivers of Devon[edit]

You have created several new sub-categories, one for each river, most of which contain only one or two images. While I appreciate the hard work, I am not sure it is useful. With such a sparse category, isn't it easier to see a gallery of all rivers in Devon with the exception of the River Dart? I thought we were only supposed to create sub-cats for overpopulated categories. --InfantGorilla (talk) 14:09, 22 September 2008 (UTC)

Responded at User talk:InfantGorilla. Dave.Dunford (talk) 14:35, 23 September 2008 (UTC)

Support your approach totally. Three years down the line and these categories will be overflowing. Users that want a image of the River Torridge will search for the category- not trawl through a page of disjointed images. ClemRutter (talk) 22:43, 23 September 2008 (UTC)

Tip: Categorizing images[edit]

Hello, Dave.Dunford!

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.

File:56 Hillside Road, Overton.JPG[edit]

Hi Dave, are you familiar with the Valued Images process? It recognises the most useful picture within a particular scope (the full criteria can be found here). I was wondering if you would consider nominating your picture linked in the heading? It's the best picture Commons has of that house; when there's only one picture it's not as straightforward as rubber stamping it, as the picture must also "illustrate its subject well". I reckon your picture is good enough and useful enough to make it through the process if you're interested. Nev1 (talk) 18:01, 14 May 2014 (UTC)

Valued Image Promotion[edit]

I took a punt on the image and it was promoted. If you have more pictures like that, why not consider nominating them as Valued Images. Nev1 (talk) 10:36, 1 June 2014 (UTC)
