Tip: Categorizing images

Hello, Glossologist!

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.

Откат герба

Борисов, зачем лезешь там, где не разбираешься? Тебе приведены две ссылки на официальный закон, а не какие-то изображения от веб-мастера. Посмотри на всадника - там изображен какой-то гей, совсем не то что в оригинале. --Pianist (talk) 20:35, 21 June 2009 (UTC)

Полегче товарищ. Я привёл ссылку с официальным описанием герба (http://www.gov.ru/main/symbols/gsrf2_1.html). Не о каком золотом контуре у щита там не идёт речи. Про всадника не спорю. Может стоит герб сделать немного более светлым (как в моём откате)? Нынешний вариант слишком насыщенный. — Gleb Borisov (talk) 14:27, 22 June 2009 (UTC)
В описании к файлу герба именно я дал ссылку на официальный документ, с которым разумеется ознакомлен. Описание герба в федеральном законе писалось с его изображения, которое является первичным. Я привел герб к тому виду, что дан на приложении к документу. А в самом законе написано, например, что всадник серебряный и не упомянута обводка, чего не скажешь об изображении. Глядя только на описание герба (не видя картинку из приложения) можно что угодно нарисовать и оно не будет гербом Российской Федерации.
Нынешний вариант насыщенный? Считаю что это плевок в душу - потратил полдня на подобор цветов в соответствие с законом, на вычищение мусора из кода, удаление сдублированный глючных элементов. В общем моя тема интересов, если Вы заметили, - это гербы и флаги. Если я что-то сделал, то значит оно так и надо, а не бездумный вандализм или проба пера. --Pianist (talk) 05:17, 23 June 2009 (UTC)
А что с золотым контуром щита? О нём ведь не пишется на официальном сайте. — Gleb Borisov (talk) 13:52, 23 June 2009 (UTC)
Золотой контур есть в приложении к федеральному закону, ссылка на изображение в формате Tiff указана на странице описания герба. --Pianist (talk) 21:53, 23 June 2009 (UTC)
Но ведь в тексте закона об этом не упоминается. «[..] с закругленными нижними углами, заостренный в оконечности красный геральдический щит [..]» На других изображениях герба на гов.ру и кремлин.ру герб без контура. И как вы узнали, что он золотой, если об этом нигде не пишется? Плюс, даже если мы принемаем золотой контур, он на щите приложения расположен по всему периметру, а не только внизу как в нынешнем варианте герба на викискладе. — Gleb Borisov (talk) 17:41, 24 June 2009 (UTC)
Перечитайте мои комментарии выше. Сейчас он расположен по всему периметру, возможно нужно отредактировать направление контура на внутреннее - посмотрю в чем дело. --Pianist (talk) 22:39, 24 June 2009 (UTC)

Russian consulate

I am currently working on en:User:Russavia/DipMis which is a rewrite of en:List of diplomatic missions of Russia, and I am requiring for the article a photo of the Russian Consulate-General building in Daugavpils. This is the building and it is located at 46 Krāslavas iela (Google map of location). Is there any possibility you are able to help with photos of this consulate? Regards, --russavia (talk) 12:09, 19 April 2010 (UTC)

Hi, unfortunately I don't have any photo of the Russian Consulate and I'm not currently in Latvia. Perhaps it's possible to upload this photo. — Gleb Borisov (talk) 13:50, 19 April 2010 (UTC)
Thanks Gleb, I have posted them a message asking for permission. We can't use it as is, as it is no derivative...if you should be in Daugavpils in future, and I still don't have photos, it would be great if you could supply it. Cheers, --russavia (talk) 07:30, 25 April 2010 (UTC)
Hi Gleb, I heard back and they gave permission. the file is located at File:Consulate-General of Russia in Daugavpils.jpg. Funnily enough, they pass by the Russian embassy in Riga every day, and they supplied the photos in Category:Russian Embassy, Riga the next day for me. Thanks for pointing out the Panoramio photo. --russavia (talk) 09:00, 30 April 2010 (UTC)
P.S. Where are you currently located? Don't suppose you can help with any of the photos I have listed at en:User:Russavia/Required_photos? Cheers, --russavia (talk) 09:00, 30 April 2010 (UTC)
Thanks, I've already noticed that. I'm currently in the UK, but quite far from both of the diplomatic missions in this country, so most likely I won't be able to help with photos. — Gleb Borisov (talk) 03:29, 1 May 2010 (UTC)

Hello, didn't you ask about the location of this picture? Today I added geodata for it. --Ziko (talk) 17:57, 8 February 2011 (UTC)

Thank you. Yes, I might have done so, but it was some time ago and I found the location myself soon afterwards. --Gleb Borisov (talk) 22:42, 8 February 2011 (UTC)

Picture of the Year voting round 1 open

Dear Wikimedians,

Wikimedia Commons is happy to announce that the 2012 Picture of the Year competition is now open. We're interested in your opinion as to which images qualify to be the Picture of the Year for 2012. Voting is open to established Wikimedia users who meet the following criteria:

  1. Users must have an account, at any Wikimedia project, which was registered before Tue, 01 Jan 2013 00:00:00 +0000 [UTC].
  2. This user account must have more than 75 edits on any single Wikimedia project before Tue, 01 Jan 2013 00:00:00 +0000 [UTC]. Please check your account eligibility at the POTY 2012 Contest Eligibility tool.
  3. Users must vote with an account meeting the above requirements either on Commons or another SUL-related Wikimedia project (for other Wikimedia projects, the account must be attached to the user's Commons account through SUL).

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. From professional animal and plant shots to breathtaking panoramas and skylines, restorations of historically relevant images, images portraying the world's best architecture, maps, emblems, diagrams created with the most modern technology, and impressive human portraits, Commons features pictures of all flavors.

For your convenience, we have sorted the images into topic categories. Two rounds of voting will be held: In the first round, you can vote for as many images as you like. The first round category winners and the top ten overall will then make it to the final. In the final round, when a limited number of images are left, you must decide on the one image that you want to become the Picture of the Year.

To see the candidate images just go to the POTY 2012 page on Wikimedia Commons

Wikimedia Commons celebrates our featured images of 2012 with this contest. Your votes decide the Picture of the Year, so remember to vote in the first round by January 30, 2013.

Thanks,
the Wikimedia Commons Picture of the Year committee

Maciejkų village

Could you clarify the location of Maciejkų village (and its true name) in Eastern Latvia, Piedrujas pagasts, border of Belarus? This place was native to one of famous Lithuanian nuns, see my article in LT wiki here. Thank you. --Vilensija (talk) 19:17, 3 May 2013 (UTC)

Hi, the village is now known as Mateiki and is nearly abandoned. You can get the location from its entry in the Latvian Placenames Database. Also, it's now part of the Indra Parish. --glossologist (talk) 22:50, 3 May 2013 (UTC)
Thanks! For the time being I made Indra in LT. I've noticed some free images of it in Panoramio, so I'll upload later to the W. Commons. It'd be nice to get the nun in LV wiki as well, if only :) --Vilensija (talk) 05:33, 4 May 2013 (UTC)
You're welcome. I'm currently having a wikibreak, but might translate this article into Latvian when I finally have some free time, if it's a request. :) --glossologist (talk) 16:03, 4 May 2013 (UTC)
Mutually. --Vilensija (talk) 19:10, 4 May 2013 (UTC)

Hi, I noticed you have set up User:MiszaBot to archive your talk page. Unfortunately, the bot has stopped working, and given how its operator is inactive, it is unclear when/if this will fixed. For the time being, I have volunteered to operate a MiszaBot clone (running the exact same code). With that said, your input would be appreciated at Commons:Bots/Requests/ArchiveBot 1.
