Tip: Categorizing 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.
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:
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]]
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.

Ribbon Bars Request
I'd like to request you, if possible, to please create the ribbon bars for the following:
|Order of Mwalimu Julius Kambarage Nyerere||source|
|rder of the United Republic of Tanzania||image|
|War Medal (Tanzania)||image|
|Order of the Green Crescent of the Comoros||source|
|Order of Katonga (Uganda)||source|
|National Liberation Medal||source|
|Campaign Against Genocide Medal||source|
Hi. I've found a better sample for the order of the republic. I have also found some other ribbon bars and would request you to create them when you're free.
|Order of the United Republic of Tanzania (civilian)||source|
|Tanganyika Independence Medal (civilian)||source|
|Medal for Excellent Production||source|
|Medal of the Revolution (civilian)||source last line
or second source
|Medal of Long Service & Ethical Conduct (civilian)||source|
Hi. The ribbons are just fantastic! Regarding the Nishani ya Jamhuri ya Muungano wa Tanzania, I'm not sure but I'd assume it is an Order; although there are some links calling it a medal. You may create it with using its Kiswahili name as the title of the file. I found photographs of these other medals:
|Medal for Environmental Care||source||green and blue on the edges; yellow, black, yellow, black, yellow|
|Anjouan Medal||source||green and blue on the edges; yellow, black, yellow.|
|Order of Mwalimu Julius Kambarage Nyerere||source||Green, yellow, black, yellow, Blue|

Kagera River Medal
Hi. Thanks for bringing the above medal to my attention. I had seen it before. This award was instituted by the former Ugandan President Idi Amin who awarded it to his troops in 1978 for annexing part of the Tanzanian Kagera Region. The current one is known as Kagera Medal and is awarded to those who fought against Idi Amin.
Thanks once again for creating the other medals. You've put in great effort. I would request you, if possible, to create the Tanzanian Anjouan medal - this was awarded by Tanzania to its troops who participated in the 2008 invasion of Anjouan. AliFazal (talk) 11:22, 12 October 2013 (UTC)
ODM of Tanzania
Hi. I trust you're well. I have re-arranged the medals section of the ODM of Tanzania into Army, Police and Prisons.I'd like to request you, during your free time, if you could assist in creating the ribbon bars for these three sections. You may find the following sources helpful: 1 and 2. Thanks. AliFazal (talk) 23:55, 12 October 2013 (UTC)
Hi. Many thanks for your suggestions. I had used the word 'former' as it is used in Template:Decorations by country. I have now used the word 'obsolete' in the Ugandan and Rwandan ODM articles. I have also restored the ODM medal list of TZ to its former version. Is it better now?
Hi. Thanks once again for your impressive work. Regarding the Burundi ribbons, the ribbon bar of the medal that was given to President Nyerere in this photo resembles the Order of Patriotic Merit. I then found this source from another language article of Nyerere confirming that it was the National Order indeed. The only image that I came across was this (the one awarded to Prince Al Waleed). I'd like to know your opinion. Also request you to please send me the link of the source of the ribbon bar for the national order of Burundi. AliFazal (talk) 11:38, 17 October 2013 (UTC)
