Hello, Gatoclass!

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.

Okay, everything above has at least one cat now, still some cleaning up to do though. Gatoclass (talk) 02:19, 24 March 2009 (UTC)

Hi. At File:Providence main stairway.jpg I see "to be completed" as the "source" etc. By you, I hope. :-) In case you forgot. Thanks. Cheers, Infrogmation (talk) 08:57, 1 October 2009 (UTC)

Oh, sorry, must have forgotten to go back and fix it. Thanks for the nudge, I'll do it shortly :) Gatoclass (talk) 17:20, 1 October 2009 (UTC)
Finally got around to it. Gatoclass (talk) 14:20, 30 November 2009 (UTC)

Flickr reviewing[edit]

Hello Gatoclass, and thank you for your application to be a flickr reviewer. The application has been removed as successful, and you've been added to the list of reviewers. Congratulations! Please see Commons:Flickr images if you haven't done so already, and the backlogs at Category:Flickr images needing human review and Category:Flickr review needed. A helpful script for easy-tagging flickr images is at importScript('User:Patstuart/Flickrreview.js'); (which you can add to your monobook.js), and you can add {{user reviewer}} or {{user trusted}} to your user page if you wish. Thank you for your work on Commons! :) –blurpeace (talk) 06:42, 13 December 2009 (UTC)

Move image please?[edit]

(copied from admins noticeboard)

Not sure where to place a request like this so I'm putting it here. Can someone move my file File:Alfred C.jpg to its correct name, Alfred C. Chapin.jpg? It's a problem with my software that sometimes truncates names to the nearest period. Thanks! Gatoclass (talk) 14:46, 7 February 2010 (UTC)

✓ Done. For future reference, you can request renames by putting {{rename|New name.jpg}} on the image page. –Tryphon 16:05, 7 February 2010 (UTC)
Ah, thanks for that :) Gatoclass (talk) 17:34, 7 February 2010 (UTC)

More cats, please[edit]

Hi, it's pleasant to see all these old pictures arriving, but most are categorized only by architect such as Category:Buildings by Frank Freeman or corporate name, or other single topical cat. Better if you can also give them a local category such as Category:Brooklyn, New York City or any broader or narrower neighborhood cats that may exist and apply. Jim.henderson (talk) 01:47, 18 February 2010 (UTC)

Yes, I probably will add some more categories later, but I find that trying to figure out the most appropriate categories is often a difficult job as one really has to have a good grasp of the category tree. And given that I just wrote a bunch of articles to go with these images, I just haven't had time to get everything done. But thanks for the word of appreciation - I like finding old images to upload too :) Gatoclass (talk) 05:42, 18 February 2010 (UTC)

We all have our little specialties; there are plenty of good free pix on the Web and I'm glad we have smart people digging around and finding them. Summertime my specialty is to bike around the metro area snapping Wikiphotos. Winter, stay indoors more, poking around the city and suburban categories where my summer photos are, Commons:Geocoding mine and others and moving them up, across, and mostly down the tree. Thus I'm pretty familiar with the local tangle of categories. My periodic patrols of chronically overstuffed cats such as Category:New York City often turn up pix that need moving, but if an item isn't in any of the local categories then it doesn't come to my attention until it shows up in an article I'm watching or something. So, yes, even if you accidentally land it a bit high on the tree or in a slightly wrong branch, you will at least enable my fellow cat wranglers to wrestle it into its proper place, while if it's not in any geographic cat at all then its odds are slimmer.

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
