Tip: Categorizing images[edit]

Hello, Dekoelie!

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.

Aksara Minangkabau[edit]

Hi there! Would you mind if I add some text to the description of this file, so that it is clear that these "aksara Minangkabau" are not real? They have once been "discovered" but it already has been shown they are actually fake (I believe you can find it in Kozok, 1999: Warisan Leluhur: Sastra Lama dan Aksara Batak, Naskah dan Dokumen Nusantara 17). You can also tell, because there are no characters for "ca", "ja" or "nya" in the script. Little hard to write Minangkabau without those...

edit: I edited the description because I saw the Franch wikipedia already put the image on their "Langue Minangkabau" article. We wouldn't want people to be misinformed... Regards, Martijn →!?← 22:42, 15 January 2010 (UTC)
