Thanks and a question[edit]

Are there any Flickr to Commons uploaders left that work? I'm afraid when I uploaded that photo of Jeff Sipe just as the Bryan Flickr tool crashed for good. ("Bryan" has a message that he is no longer associated with Wikimedia Commons.) Also, how can I create a category? There are a few I'd like to make, in part, to show the notability of the people in the photos that I upload for our en.wikipedia musician's biography articles. They are: the Southern rock jam band called the Allman Brothers Band, 2) Nils Lofgren, virtuoso guitarist and pianist who has been both a solo act and a member of Bruce Springsteen's band 3)Is there a category for session musicians? There are many notable musicians who make their living playing on other famous artists' records, including Waddy Wachtel (for James Taylor and Stevie Nicks), Pino Palladino (for The Who, John Mayer, Keith Richards), David Lindley (Jackson Browne, Dolly Parton, Curtis Mayfield), Alun Davies (for Cat Stevens, Nicky Hopkins, Yusuf Islam). IN FACT, someone uploaded her own photo of Yusuf Islam (formerly known as Cat Stevens) using Creative Commons, but the category she added it to, "Yusuf Islam" doesn't exist. What can be done? --Leahtwosaints (talk) 02:30, 21 July 2009 (UTC)

Yes – I've just done some playing around (as you can see below) and this bot is still working. You need a TUSC password for it (see the link below). iridescent 18:46, 21 July 2009 (UTC)
Thanks for answering me. But, have you USED the TUSC account? I signed up for one over a year ago, and then again last week:
  • [TUSC token ca37d4596538642fdbfe8fff626f76b3]
  • [TUSC token eaf549f4c87f57b14ca6acbf08b3404e]

I suppose the second one, most recent is operative now? If so, then my next problem is understanding what to put into those boxes on THIS bot. Please understand; I've got about 3 years of nearly nonstop editing on the en.wikipedia, but only in the last 6 months have I been using Commons; and that was only to upload photos that were missing on many biography articles. The whole time I used that upload tool from Flickr I'd email people with good photos there and ask them to remove their copyright from the image and pick a Creative Commons license instead-- BY, BY-CC, or BY-SA-CC. Those were the only uploads acceptable, and if you see my Wikipedia userpage, (I only recently began listing some there- probably 1/4 of them, it was a joyful feeling to be able to add a photo to a biography page! But now, I feel overwhelmed. Looking at my talk page, it's either silence --see how long? Or, people speaking, but for the most part, really talking over my head. I want to know things! I want to learn! I can help sort photos-- you can't imagine the number of musicians' faces I've seen now by browsing people's photostreams in Flickr and uploading many more! But I was in a coma 4 years ago and suffered some memory loss. (At first it was so major, I couldn't find my keys, sitting next to my hand!) But it was always more speaking of short-term memory compared to long-term memory, and I've gotten more and more of it back every day, though I suspect it's still a problem. Anyway, you seem to really understand it! Will you help teach me here? --Leahtwosaints (talk) 21:24, 22 July 2009 (UTC)

It was definitely working for me yesterday, as I tested it (see File:The Golden Lion, Fulham.jpg, uploaded using it). You need to set up the TUSC account with "commons" as the project name, not "en", despite what the instructions say.
I'm not really the best person to teach anything here; although my Commons history looks large, it consists almost entirely of uploading pictures that I need for specific articles on en-wiki, and I have no real knowledge of Commons policies and procedures, or of the software behind it. You're better off asking at Commons:Village pump, or User:Durova may be willing to help, or to suggest someone who can.
If your TUSC account is working, for "Flickr URL" you need to cut-and-paste the full URL that appears in your browser bar when you're viewing the image in Flickr (e.g. http://www.flickr.com/photos/earthandeden/395466458/ or similar), and "New name" is whatever you want the Commons file to be called (remember to put .jpg on the end!). Remember, "Only search within Creative Commons-licensed content", "Find content to use commercially" and "Find content to modify, adapt, or build upon" all need to be checked in the search bar when you're searching for images, otherwise Commons can't accept them and the bot will reject it automatically. iridescent 00:26, 23 July 2009 (UTC)

I am now proud owner of a TUSC account!

Yellow tags for unchecked images[edit]

I've run into a couple of images here that never were checked to see if they really did fill the GDFL license (or at least one that's OK) An example is this one: [1] I don't see how it can really be checked, but for ones with a link to Flickr where I CAN tell, how do I remove the yellow warning tag if it is OK? And, who do I contact if it's not a free photo? --Leahtwosaints (talk) 10:50, 27 September 2009 (UTC)

To remove the yellow tag, edit the page and remove the part that says:
{{Check categories|year=2008|month=November|day=7
|gallery1=Jill Sobule
}}
on the description page. If it's a copyright violation, put {{copyvio}} on the page and someone should delete it. iridescent 18:00, 29 September 2009 (UTC)

Hello, Iridescent!

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.
