Hello, Hotcop2!

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.

Dave Winfield and Village people photos

✓ I'm glad you got it resolved. Sorry if my over-vigilance caused any difficulty with the change. Your photo File:VillagePeople1978.jpg really is a great addition to the site. I can just see it hiding in your attic or the pages of a photo album waiting to take to the digital stage all these years. Thanks for uploading it. Senator2029talk 15:37, 19 January 2012 (UTC)


No problem. It was my fault; I didn't realize I wasn't signed into Commons when I made the changes. You did the right thing ;-) Hotcop2 (talk) 16:11, 19 January 2012 (UTC)

Targeting?[edit]

hello I am not targeting you. I am just asking for you to archive your photos and permission. You've been instructed to email COM:OTRS to get your files restored if you did that in the first place like the tag on your photos said to do then they would not have been deleted. its not to late you can still send the email and they will restore your images. it is a good idea that you should do this every time you upload your own images so you don't have a problem in the future. Dman41689 (talk) 15:23, 16 September 2013 (UTC)

3 points:

  • COM:OTRS#When contacting OTRS is unnecessary: I took the image myself and it hasn't been previously published (and there is no other copyright involved). Just follow the instructions found on the Commons:Upload page, unless the image is of outstanding quality or there is some other reason your authorship may be doubted.
  • {{no permission since}} is for those files whose permission tag is missing, or the permission and the authorship are strongly doubted due to some strong and clear evidences to the contrary. And User:Dman41689 did not cite any evidence.
  • As I said on his talk page, which was unreasonably deleted by him, he didn't assume good faith: Unless there is clear evidence to the contrary, assume that people who work on the project are trying to help it, not hurt it. Sending mail to OTRS is not required for every uploader who claims authorship. If the uploader said it's his own work, you should probably believe him, unless you have very strong evidence to doubt that.

--Tomchen1989 (talk) 16:19, 16 September 2013 (UTC)

To Hotcop2: for these photos: File:Victor Willis.jpg, File:Winfield Cooperstown.jpg, File:VillagePeople1978.jpg, File:Victor Willis in concert 2008.jpg, File:NewYorkCity2001.jpg, File:DaveWinfieldbyMarioCasciano.jpg, are you the very original author, who used a camera to take these photos, rather than who scanned these photos which were originally taken by other people? If you are the original author, It's fair enough to remove those {{no permission since}} tags, and to open undeletion requests for those already deleted files. Sending mail to OTRS is better, but optional. --Tomchen1989 (talk) 16:24, 16 September 2013 (UTC)

Yes, Tomchen, I took the original photos. Village People and Dave Winfield were taken with a film camera and had to be scanned. Willis in convcert was taken digitally. Hotcop2 (talk) 18:27, 16 September 2013 (UTC)

He deleted my suggestion[edit]

Well, I think he is a bit weird, I really have no idea why he deleted my sincere suggestion and your discussion. Although it's his own talk page, it's no good to do that. Commons:Administrators' noticeboard/User problems may be one solution to solve this. --Tomchen1989 (talk) 16:03, 16 September 2013 (UTC)

Related guideline: COM:ARCHIVE: Archive rather than delete [...]; COM:TALK#Can I do whatever I want to my own user talk page?: Actively erasing personal messages without replying (if a reply would be appropriate or polite) will probably be interpreted as hostile [...] --Tomchen1989 (talk) 16:09, 16 September 2013 (UTC)
