Hello, Discanto!

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.

Tombe dei giganti[edit]

Ciao Discanto. Vorrei ricordarti che qui stai su Commons e non sulla Wikipedia italiana. In Commons la lingua ufficiale è l'inglese, poichè Commons è il serbatoio internazionale delle immagini provenienti da tutte le Wikipedie del mondo. Quindi il tuo cambiamento della categoria "Giants graves" in "Tombe dei giganti" è impropria e scorretta: va fatto esattamente l'opposto. Quindi ho rollbackato il tutto, trasformando la tua nuova categoria "Tombe dei giganti" in una redirect a "Giant graves". Così chi le cerca in italiano comunque troverà la corrispondente categoria in inglese. Se hai dubbi sui nomi da attribuire alle categorie, non farti scrupoli di interpellare me o altri utenti di lingua italiana oppure chiedi al bar italiano (vedi qui a sinistra nel quadro "navigazione") per chiedere consiglio. Ciao e buon lavoro. --DenghiùComm (talk) 04:38, 25 February 2012 (UTC)

Io personalmente sono contrario alle traduzioni dei nomi, specialmente dei luoghi. Florence non esiste, esiste Firenze. La traduzione di un nome è qualcosa che non corrisponde alla realtà e che esiste solo nella testa e nell'uso di terzi che con quel luogo non hanno nulla a che fare. Detto questo (che ti ripeto: è la mia convinzione) bisogna però fare i conti con il nostro progetto che è un progetto internazionale, che come tale ha scelto la lingua inglese. Come ci si regola allora? Perché se tu vai a vedere i nomi dei capoluoghi di provincia italiani, alcuni sono tradotti (Turin, Milan, Padua, Venice, Genoa, Florence, Rome, Naples, Syracuse, ...) mentre tutti gli altri no. La regola invalsa ed oramai ampiamente e diffusamente adottata è che se in inglese quel nome è tradotto, lo si dà in quella forma tradotta; se invece non viene tradotto, allora lo si dà nel suo nome locale ufficiale. Quindi, quando vuoi dare un nome ad una categoria, conviene sempre che tu vada prima a vedere sulla en:WP come esso viene dato. Le Tombe dei Giganti vengono tradotte in Giants' grave, quindi la categoria deve essere questa. Poi, poiché noi italiani siamo scarsi nelle lingue, per il nome italiano (se molto differente) conviene creare un'altra categoria che si trasformerà in redirect. Perché certe volte noi poverini impazziamo a scoprire come viene detto un monumento, una chiesa o quant'altro, il cui nome è stato tradotto in inglese. Io certe volte ho serie difficoltà. In quei casi creo sempre la redirect del nome italiano. Così almeno la volta successiva non perdo tutto quel tempo a cercare e identificare il nome inglese. Capita la faccenda? Salutoni e buon lavoro. --DenghiùComm (talk) 20:39, 25 February 2012 (UTC)

Hello. I just wanted to let you know that I have granted autopatrol rights to your account; the reason for this is that I believe you are sufficiently trustworthy and experienced to have your contributions automatically sighted. This will have no effect on your editing, and is simply intended to help users watching Recent changes or Recent uploads to find unproductive edits amidst the productive ones. Thank you.

Ponte vecchio di Pavia[edit]

Ci sono passato ieri e non mi sembrava cosí, ma se sei sicuro per piacere correggi anche l'ID. Grazie, Nemo 08:41, 16 September 2012 (UTC)

Grazie a te per aver corretto e per tutte le tue categorizzazioni. Ti consiglio di provare anche l'accessorio cat-a-lot: per esempio tutte quelle foto della Giralda le avresti potute spostare direttamente dalla pagina della loro categoria con un singolo comando (per un totale di forse tre clic piú uno per foto). Quando si spostano molte immagini simili che sono già in una stessa categoria è davvero formidabile. --Nemo 13:07, 16 September 2012 (UTC)
Sei sicuro che non funzioni? A volte può essere un po' oscuro. Quando sei in una categoria, dovresti vedere un piccolissimo riquadro "cat-a-lot" giallino in basso a destra, devi cliccarlo per attivare lo strumento. --Nemo 05:51, 18 September 2012 (UTC)

You are being very, very wrong[edit]

Hello, and please excuse me but you are doing a big mistake. You are copying the photos from Category:Photographs by Ralph Hammann into Category:Taken with Canon PowerShot SX20 IS without checking first! This is wrong, because many of these photos were taken with a SONY, not a Canon, for instance this one: [1]. If I was you, I would check every file one by one before starting to copy. Cheers, --Edelseider (talk) 07:06, 5 October 2012 (UTC)

WLM categoria unchecked[edit]

Scusa, posso sapere il perché di questa modifica? la categoria è legata al concorso WLM e viene eliminata quando una foto viene valutata dal comitato che deve selezionare le 500 foto da passare alla giuria. Se la toglie qualcun altro la conseguenza è che la fotografia non sarà mai esaminata dal comitato, come se venisse eliminata dal concorso: per questa foto specifica me ne sono accorta per puro caso. Mi potresti gentilmente far sapere se hai fatto altre modifiche simili ad altre immagini? Così cerchiamo di recuperare le fotografie che eventualmente altrimenti rischierebbero di sfuggirci. Grazie MM (talk) 23:13, 9 October 2012 (UTC)

Non ti preoccupare: sono cose che succedono: forse anche noi dovevamo dare spiegazioni più diffuse, non so. Le foto per il concorso potevano essere caricate solo fino al 30 settembre con il relativo template: se tu cercassi di mettercelo ora ci sarebbe un bot che lo eliminerebbe. Il fatto è che si è stati abbastanza rigidi su questo, perché si sta cercando di far convalidare anche quest'anno il record di concorso fotografico con più foto dal Guinness dei primati, e dunque il comitato internazionale deve essere piuttosto fiscale. Ne puoi fare altre per il prossimo anno? (mi pare un buon motivo per tornarci, alla Maddalena, che io ricordo come un posto bellissimo :-) MM (talk) 17:24, 12 October 2012 (UTC)

Copying from Category:Photographs by Another Believer to Category:Taken with Canon Digital IXUS 220 HS[edit]

Are you checking these images individually? I have used other cameras in the past, so not all images uploaded by me at Commons were taken by this camera model. --Another Believer (talk) 01:37, 25 April 2013 (UTC)

Same thing for Category:Aviation photos by User:El Grafo: You've tagged several pictures as taken with Nikon Coolpix 4600 that were already (correctly) tagged as taken with Pentax K-5. Others were actually taken with a Nikon D-90. Please be more careful and check the EXIF data before tagging. --El Grafo (talk) 09:00, 28 June 2013 (UTC)

Category:Taken with Canon PowerShot A540[edit]

This category is a great idea, but when making edits like this one, please be very careful. I bought my camera in early 2008, long after I'd started contributing images to Commons, and my previous camera (which took images such as File:Meridian in Portland, Indiana.jpg) was a different model. I've also taken occasional images with other cameras, e.g. File:East Main Street Historic District, Wilmore.jpg, which I took after borrowing a Canon EOS 350D from a friend.

These images include professional animal and plant shots, breathtaking panoramas and skylines, restorations of historical images, photographs portraying the world's best architecture, impressive human portraits, and so much more.

There are two total rounds of voting. In the first round, you voted for as many images as you liked. The top 30 overall and the most popular image in each category have continued to the final. In the final round, you may vote for just one image to become the Picture of the Year.
