Hello, Mashaunix!

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.

Re: Hi[edit]

I appreciate the encouragement you give me, since I have not always received good words about my contribution. This is a tough work to do, but necessary; and it should also be everybody's work. Nice to meet you (on-line); best wishes in the Commons project.--Locutus Borg (talk) 19:49, 26 January 2010 (UTC)

Please don't blank pages[edit]

Hi Mashaunix,
Thank you for your contributions to Commons. I noticed you blanked Commons:Featured picture candidates/File:Alentejo oak on wheat field.jpg on Commons. If you meant for the page to be deleted, blanking the page is not the right way to do this. Please use {{speedy| type reason here }} and add it on top of the page you would like to have deleted; This way it will be placed on a special list that administrators check regularly for deletion. Without this it might take a long time before it's noticed. For redirects use #REDIRECT[[Target]] or {{category redirect|Targetcategoryname}}. For more information please read Blanking. Thanks again.

I've deleted it. –Krinkletalk 02:23, 14 December 2010 (UTC)
OK, thanks for deleting it.--MASHAUNIX 17:26, 14 December 2010 (UTC)
