This media may be deleted.

Thanks for uploading Image:Flag of the Nordic Council.svg. I notice the image page currently doesn't specify who created the content, so the copyright status is unclear. If you have not created this media yourself then you need to argue that we have the right to use the media on Wikimedia Commons (see copyright tagging below). If you have not created the media yourself then you should also specify where you found it, i.e., in most cases link to the website where you got it, and the terms of use for content from that page. If the content is a derivative of a copyrighted work, you need to supply the names and a licence of the original authors as well.

If the media also doesn't have a copyright tag, then you must also add one. If you created/took the picture, audio, or video then you can use {{self|GFDL|cc-by-sa-all}} to release it under the multilicense GFDL plus Creative Commons Attribution-ShareAlike All-version license or {{PD-self}} to release it into the public domain. See Commons:Copyright tags for the full list of copyright tags that you can use.

Note that any unsourced and untagged images will be deleted one week after they have been uploaded, as described on criteria for speedy deletion. If you have uploaded other media, please check that you have specified their source and copyright tagged them, too. You can find all your uploads using the Gallery tool. Thank you.

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.

Tip: Categorizing images[edit]

Hello, Kikos!

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.

Your Panoramio uploads[edit]

Hello Kikos!

Thanks a lot for your contributions! Thank you for transferring images from Panoramio to Commons! Two hints ahead:

  • Always upload the highest resolution of a photograph that is available on Panoramio
  • You can use this tool for your Panoramio uploads. It makes the whole procedure much easier and faster for you!

Thank you for your support! Greetings, High Contrast (talk) 18:40, 17 May 2012 (UTC)

Thanks for uploading File:South Orkney Islands location map GCS WGS.svg. I notice that the file page either doesn't contain enough information about the license or it contains contradictory information about the license, so the copyright status is unclear.

Oops! fixed. --Kikos (talk) 07:33, 26 November 2013 (UTC)

Please provide reasons for negative votes[edit]

Hello Kikos! As written on FPC: Could you please give reason(s) for your opposes. This massively helps the photographers and is imho a courtesy because the people on Commons / FPC / QIC invest a lot of time to provide high quality photos. With en-3 it should not be a big deal for you to explicate your vote. E.g. I have no idea why you voted with Symbol oppose vote.svg Oppose on File:Blick auf Kettwig mit Uferpalais im Herbst 2013.jpg. In detail reviews help the photographers to improve their skills. --Tuxyso (talk) 07:18, 29 November 2013 (UTC)

Request for advice[edit]

Thank you for your comment at Commons:Featured picture candidates/File:Streisand Estate.jpg/2.

I'd really like your advice:

The image was edited to be improved further.

What else can be done to adjust the image so you think it'd be satisfactory to you for Featured Picture quality?

Thank you for your time,

Sorry for my not so diplomatic style :) I'm not so fluent in English to write in full politess - just to take to audience most important things :) For images like this may be we can create another nomination like "Wikivaluable pictures" or something like this to commemorate wikiroadstones. --Kikos (talk) 08:47, 16 December 2013 (UTC)

FPC[edit]

I do not ask you to support my images, you can oppose if you want. But after severals hours of work for one picture (find the good place, the good light, editing picture, publishing...), to hear that it does not look like a photo, is not very constructive but certain lack of respect in the formulation for the accomplished work, even if you don't like it. You can oppose and say you don't like colors, light, the edition or what you want. But even by not knowing how to very well speak English you can make a small effort not to be unpleasant. Thank you for your interest for my images. --Christian Ferrer (talk) 08:13, 26 January 2014 (UTC)

What is "FPC"? Btw if You promote Your images to "the best of Wikiphotos" You should be ready to hear negative comments. It is sad when Your several hours work is fruitless but as a photographer You again should be ready for this. Two Your last images are disapointing. It happens. None of my own photographies are good enough to promote. It happens too. Be adult! I'll always tell what I think in my own way of English (even Latvian no one can understand). Be polite to understand that, please! --Kikos (talk) 08:41, 26 January 2014 (UTC)
