Hello, Fredlyfish4!

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.

Nonsense categorization[edit]

Hi Fredlyfish4, Some time ago, I have been busy getting rid of images nonsensically classified in the categories Cartography, Classification systems, Encodings, Geographic information systems and Identifiers. Simultaneously. Recently, new images have been uploaded with this categorization, some of them by you (e.g. File:Sawtooths from South 4.JPG). Can you please explain the reason of this categorization? KKoolstra (talk) 07:13, 5 July 2012 (UTC)

Thanks for your explanation on my talk-page. It seems that somewhere on en.wikipedia is the source of the problem. However, I haven't yet been able to find the corresponding categories there to fix the problem at the source. But I will keep trying. Thank you for cooperating in removing the erroneous cateogries.

File:Camas Prairie At Sunset - Idaho.jpg[edit]

Critically evaluate Flickr licenses File:Camas Prairie At Sunset - Idaho.jpg has been marked as a copyright violation. You may have preserved the information shown on Flickr correctly when transferring the image here, but the Flickr uploader is not the copyright holder of this image. Either the image was created by someone else, or it is a derivative of someone else's work. As stated in Commons:Licensing, only the copyright holder may issue a license, so the one shown on Flickr is invalid.

Always remember to critically evaluate Flickr licenses. Photostreams with professional-looking photographs, album covers, posters, and images in a wide range of styles or quality taken by many different cameras often indicate that the Flickr uploader either does not understand or does not care about copyright matters. See Commons:Questionable Flickr images for a list of known bad Flickr users.

Deleting vs Archiving[edit]

Please do not simply delete notices of DRs and other similar communications. It makes it much more difficult for your colleagues to get a complete picture of your activities on Commons. You may, of course, create one or more archive subpages as needed if the main page gets too long. Most of us use a name like User talk:Fredlyfish4/Archive 1. .     Jim . . . . Jameslwoodward (talk to me) 16:00, 30 October 2012 (UTC)

These messages are not that relevant to me because all of the files I am notified about are those that I have transferred from the English Wikipedia to the Commons via CommonsHelper. I am not the author or original uploader of any of the files and cannot provide source information on them. Fredlyfish4 (talk) 17:18, 30 October 2012 (UTC)
I think the real question is why you are transferring so many files that are obviously unsourced or even blatant copyright violations to Commons. Uploading files to Commons (whether directly or by transferring them from another project) without conducting basic checks to ensure that files that you upload meet Commons' requirements creates a lot of work for others and undermines the reliability of Commons. If you're not willing or able to perform those checks, you should probably leave the whole task of identifying files to be transferred here to others. LX (talk, contribs) 17:39, 30 October 2012 (UTC)
While I almost always review files before I transfer them, I often make mistakes. But more significantly, some of these files are ones that I thought had proper source information but did not upon review on the Commons. I realize that my understanding of copyright laws involving images other than my own is not complete, but I am working on it. I will try to take care to deal with unsourced files on Wikipedia before transferring them. Reviewers who list them for deletion here should always notify the original uploader, who can them provide the correct source info. This is not done nearly as often as it should be. Fredlyfish4 (talk) 19:40, 30 October 2012 (UTC)

October 2012[edit]

Hi, Fredlyfish4. I am Dianna and I am an administrator on the English Wikipedia. I can't help but notice that a really large number of the files that you are transferring to the Commons should not be here, as they are not in the public domain. I suggest that you stop transferring files to the Commons for the time being, until you have a better grasp of what is and is not allowed on this wiki. Please consider reading Commons:Hirtle chart and Commons:Licensing for a better understanding of what is required before a file can be hosted on the Commons. Not only is a lot of your work for nothing, as many of your files are being deleted, but you are generating a lot of unnecessary work for administrators, both here and on the English Wikipedia. So please stop. Thanks. -- Diannaa (talk) 02:11, 2 November 2012 (UTC)

First, I'm not the original author or uploader of the files. Second, I'm not sure what was going through my mind when I transferred them; I'm normally more cautious. Fredlyfish4 (talk) 12:31, 2 November 2012 (UTC)
I am aware you are not the original uploader. You transferred the items to Commons using a bot script. Of the images I personally have checked, virtually none of them belong on the Commons, as they are incorrectly tagged as released under license or are shown as being public domain, when in actuality they are not. None of these files have adequate source information and/or level of proof of permission of the original photographer. Most will have to be deleted from both locations. Instead of transferring them to the Commons, they should have been nominated for deletion or converted to fair use, if appropriate. -- Diannaa (talk) 19:53, 2 November 2012 (UTC)
(talk page stalker) It's not quite as bad as it looks; Fredlyfish had transferred over many images, and I deleted the ones that were obviously OK, and this left mostly bad images, which is what Diannaa saw. Magog the Ogre (talk) (contribs) 03:57, 3 November 2012 (UTC)

Picture of the Year 2013 R1 Announcement[edit]

Round 1 of Picture of the Year 2013 is open![edit]

2012 Picture of the Year: A pair of European Bee-eaters in Ariège, France.

Dear Wikimedians,

Wikimedia Commons is happy to announce that the 2013 Picture of the Year competition is now open. This year will be the eighth edition of the annual Wikimedia Commons photo competition, which recognizes exceptional contributions by users on Wikimedia Commons. Wikimedia users are invited to vote for their favorite images featured on Commons during the last year (2013) to produce a single Picture of the Year.

Hundreds of images that have been rated Featured Pictures by the international Wikimedia Commons community in the past year are all entered in this competition. 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.

For your convenience, we have sorted the images into topical categories. Two rounds of voting will be held: In the first round, you may vote for as many images as you like. The top 30 overall and the most popular image in each category will continue to the final. In the final round, you may vote for just one image to become the Picture of the Year.

Round 1 will end on . Click here to learn more and vote »

Thanks,
the Wikimedia Commons Picture of the Year committee

You are receiving this message because you voted in the 2012 Picture of the Year contest.
