Hello, Hectonichus!

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.

please do not over-categorize ![edit]

Hello,

please try to avoid redundant categories. For example, if you use "Erronea", do not use "Cypraeidae", as this last category contains the first. See COM:OVERCAT#Over-categorization

Yours,

Modifying images[edit]

I like what you did with File:Insect Safari - lepidopteran 028.jpg, but in general when substantively modifying someone else's image where the photographer did not request the modification, you should upload under a different name, and link the two images by using {{extracted from}} on the new file and {{extracted}} on the old. You should also describe what you actually did (not just "improved") and should indicate on the new file both the original credits for the photo and credit yourself for your modifications. - Jmabel ! talk 17:29, 3 December 2011 (UTC)

{{cc-by-sa-3.0}}[edit]

Hi, I noticed that you were adding Category:CC-BY-SA-3.0 on your uploads, presumably because you wish to release them under that license. The only proper way to do that is to add {{cc-by-sa-3.0}} (or {{self|cc-by-sa-3.0}}) on the image page; once you've done that, please remove the category, as it is added by the license template already (it's hidden, so you may not notice it, but it's there).

Categories[edit]

Hello Hectonichus,
You must be aware, that I corrected some of your categories (on Cheliderpeton, Requienia, Inversoceras, Oonocerina, Planiscutellum, Metacalymene, Solenopeltis...).
A category should never self-categorize itself.
You also mix "Species" and "Genus".
Could you be more careful about that?
By the way, I added the {{Taxonavigation}}, {{TPDB}} Thanks and good contributions. Liné1 (talk) 11:55, 13 June 2012 (UTC)

Sorry. I will try. Ciao. Hectonichus

Thank you for providing images to Wikimedia Commons. Please keep in mind that images and other files on Commons must be under a free license and should be useful to the Wikimedia projects. To allow others to use your files, some additional information must be given on the description page. Most importantly:

  • Describe what it is about in a short sentence. (What does the image show?)
  • State the author and the date of creation. If you made it yourself, say so explicitly. If it is from another Wikimedia user, link to the person's local user page. Best to use CommonsHelper.
  • If you did not create the file yourself, state the source you got it from.
  • Add a copyright tag - images without an appropriate license tag will be deleted.
  • Add the image to one or more gallery pages and/or appropriate categories, so it can be found by others. To find out where an image belongs, you can use CommonsSense.

If you copied the file from another wiki, please copy all information given there and say who uploaded it to that wiki. Use CommonsHelper.

It is recommended to use Template:Information to put that information on the description page. Have a look at Template talk:Information for details of the use of this template.

You can edit the description page and change the text. Uploading a new version of the file does not change the description of the file.

Please add as much information as possible. If there is not sufficient information, the file may have to be deleted. For more information, follow the Commons:First steps guide. If you need help or have questions, please ask at the Help desk.

Thank you.

Pterophorus[edit]

Thank you for your attention. But if there is a category for the species is contained in the category of gender. That is why we do not put. Good luck in COMMONS :) --Archaeodontosaurus (talk) 07:32, 25 August 2012 (UTC)

OK! Thank you.

Heliconius ismenius[edit]

Yes, I think you now have the correct species name. I am glad you put your pictures in the article as they were of excellent quality. I used a book called "A Swift Guide to Butterflies of Mexico and Central America" by Jeffrey Glassberg that described in detail the differences between this species and Eueides isabella as well as several very similar species. It is amazing how closely they mimic each other. Keep up the good work. Dger (talk) 15:49, 5 October 2012 (UTC)

Misidentified plant images[edit]

Hi Hectonichus, I strongly suspect that the above photographs show Geranium pyrenaicum, not Geranium molle. There are no leaves close to the fruits in the images with flowers or fruits and the pedicels just below the flowers/fruits do not show any of the typical rather long hairs of Geranium molle, but the typical fine, very short hairs of Geranium pyrenaicum. The calyx is not visible in Image:Geraniaceae - Geranium molle.JPG, which suggests that the petals might be much longer than the calyx and the colour of the flower does not look as reddish as usual for Geranium molle, but exactly like Geranium pyrenaicum. I asked the users on an identification page in the German wikipedia (de:Wikipedia:Redaktion Biologie/Bestimmung) about the ID and got the answer "wahrscheinlich 'Geranium pyrenaicum'", i. e. "probably 'Geranium pyrenaicum'". I do not believe that there are any lookalikes in the area where the photographs were taken (i.e. in the French Alps) if Geranium molle can be excluded, at least not according to the Flora alpina. I am not completely sure about Image:Geraniaceae - Geranium molle-1.JPG, but if it was part of the same plants, it should be Geranium pyrenaicum as well. I have the intention to move the three images to Category:Geranium pyrenaicum and adapt the descriptions accordingly, unless you disagree with my suggestion. Wishing a Happy New Year 2013 to you --Robert Flogaus-Faust (talk) 20:52, 6 January 2013 (UTC)

Hi Robert! The plant of these images had been identified as "Geraniun molle" by 2-3 users of the Italian Forum Natura Mediterraneo. But probably they were wrong. Please do whatever is necessary. Ciao.

Danaus erippus — really?[edit]

Hi Hectonichus,
Is this actually Danaus erippus? I raise these butterflies here in Argentina and as far as I know the males don't have that thick black stripe on the lower margin of their forewings. That is a trait of Danaus plexippus. -- GRuellan Eye-Brown.svg Hmm? 21:19, 24 March 2013 (UTC)

Ciao, Gabriela. May be you are right, but please see the following site, where an image of D. erippus shows said black stripe on the lower margin of their forewings. Thank you.
http://www.biolib.cz/en/taxonimage/id179226/

Hi, sorry to bother you but Category:Acanthopleura gemmata seems to be missing category and template parts. Can you fix it? Thank you! Palosirkka (talk) 16:50, 9 November 2013 (UTC)

Looks like the same deal here Category:Achatina tincta Palosirkka (talk) 16:53, 9 November 2013 (UTC)

OK! My name is Ettore Balocchi. Would it be possible having a copy of this paper on my e-mail (ebalocchi2@alice.it)? Ciao. Ettore


Misnamed Lithops[edit]

Dear Hectonichus, the image you uploaded labelled Lithops salicola ( https://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/File:Aizoaceae_-_Lithops_salicola.JPG ) is definitely not of this species. You need only look at other pictures of this species to see that this picture is not of this species. It is likely Fenestraria (a monotypic genus, also from here in southern Africa) https://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/Category:Fenestraria_rhopalophylla Abu Shawka (talk) 23:49, 10 May 2014 (UTC)

Thank you! Done!

Una pianta appenninica[edit]

Ciao Hectonichus, ho visto che ti intendi di flora italiana e ho pensato di chiederti questa cosa. Ho scattato questa foto sull'Appennino tosco-romagnolo, si tratta di qualche erbacea, forse endemica, che riesce a sopravvivere in un suolo inospitale formato da frammenti di serpentino. Pensi di poter identificare la pianta dai fiori gialli? --Khruner (talk) 13:54, 26 May 2014 (UTC)

Capito, speravo che l'ambiente particolare potesse aiutare nell'identificazione, comunque grazie lo stesso. --Khruner (talk) 07:52, 27 May 2014 (UTC)

Creating Categories[edit]

Hi! Thanks for contributing new photos and new categories. However, please note the format for taxonomic templates is a little different than that of Wikipedia articles. The taxonavigation is structured differently: e.g. the taxobox template isn't used, instead we use Template:Taxonavigation. Also, the category created still needs to be placed into its own category, which does work the same way as Wikipedia categorization (e.g. Category:Galeodes blanchardi would go into Category:Galeodes which goes into Category:Galeodidae). Also, just FYI it's probably best to stick to major ranks like order, family, genus, and only create categories for other ranks (subfamily, superorder, etc.) if and when a single category is very full, as more in-between categories can make browsing images harder.
