Hi - I do not understand your edit to Image:Bowral3JasmineStreet.jpg categorising it as 2006. Although the picture was indeed taken in 2006, as are many many pictures on commons, the year of photography has nothing to do with anything as far as I can see. Can you please explain?--AYArktos 10:24, 21 March 2006 (UTC)
Please don't categorise by year
Hi Hailey. I noticed that you seem to have embarked on a mass campaign to give images year categories as AYArktos stated above. Please don't do this, it's a very bad idea. Categories should describe the content, the subject of the photo, not give metadata about it such as "made in 2006" (which is what is implied by Category:2006), "used in X project", "photo by X" etc. (In the latter case such categories are allowed, but they should always be used with descriptive categories as well.) People will not look in Category:2006 to find every image ever uploaded during that time there. They will look for major events, which is why you can see articles like 2006 Australian Open, 2006 Winter Olympics there.
It's great that you want to help with categorisation -- we need all the help we can get. But I suggest you turn your hand to giving images that have NO categories, some useful, descriptive ones. Here are some tools to help you:
This is a formal warning. Stop categorising images by year or you will face a ban. Only images that represent significant events during one particular year should be categorised that way. pfctdayelise (translate?) 05:41, 31 March 2006 (UTC)
