Hello, Lcawte!

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 note that once you release an image under a free licence, you cannot later revoke that licence. Adambro (talk) 12:29, 9 January 2010 (UTC)

Hello. Thank you for uploading Image:Machine vision optical filters Fig2.jpg, however the license that you have uploaded it under has been deprecated. Please could you select a new free license that describes the rights of the image correctly? If you are not able to do this, the image will be deleted in 7 days.

For more information on licenses that can be used on Wikimedia Commons, please see Commons:Licensing. If you have any questions, please ask at the village pump. Thank you for your patience and consideration. This is an automatic message by Nikbot.--Filnik 11:55, 5 June 2010 (UTC)

There seems to be a problem regarding the description and/or licensing of this particular file. It has been found that you've added in the image's description only a Template that's not a license and although it provides useful information about the image, it's not a valid license. Could you please resolve this problem, adding the license in the image linked above? 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. This page may give you more hints on which license to choose. Thank you.

Source information[edit]

Hi, I noticed that you transferred File:1777 Burdett map of area around Sale.jpg from en.wikipedia. When transferring files, can you please retain the original source information. Stating that the map originated from en.wikipedia is not helpful as the page was deleted as it was a duplicate of the one on commons. This applies to other files as it makes it difficult to find the original source information. I realise it was retained in the original upload log, but this is not as prominent as the summary box. Thanks, Nev1 (talk) 22:56, 8 September 2010 (UTC)

Adding Information template[edit]

If you add the {{Information}} using http://tools.wikimedia.de/~magnus/add_information.php you need to edit the resulting source text to bring it into a good format. The automated adding does not help Commons. If it would, it could be done by bots. --Leyo 22:37, 24 February 2011 (UTC)

I did some of them, and I was going to go back and do them, however I ran out of time. And anyway, a bot could do it properly, I'm pretty sure a simple script using bits of cosmetic_changes.py (pywikipediabot) would do well enough. --Lcawte (talk) 20:04, 6 March 2011 (UTC)
