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 informations 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.

This message was added automatically by Filbot, if you need some help about it, ask its master or go to the Commons:Help desk. --Filnik 17:48, 4 February 2008 (UTC)

Sorry, I noticed this right after uploading, that I forgot to choose a license. Anyway, I cannot find a button or something zo fix the mistake...

Warning sign
This media may be deleted.

Thanks for uploading Image:KVB2012Thielenbruch.jpg. 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.

Tip: Categorizing images[edit]

Hello, Mikosch!

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:


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]]

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.

Bitte nicht überkategorisieren![edit]

Hallo Mikosch, bitte überkategorisiere Deine Bilder nicht. Beispiel File:Duisburg-Beeck 05.02.2013 09.JPG:

Bevor Du noch weiter so falsch kategorisierst, lese Dir erst einmal gründlich Commons:Categories durch. Auch das Problem mit der Überkategorisierung wird dort erklärt. Es ist aber auch so ganz einfach zu verstehen: Würde jeder Benutzer Deinem Beispiel folgen, wäre Category:Germany mit sämtlichen Bilder aus ganz Deutschland verstopft und somit völlig unübersichtlich. Und warum sollte man ausgerechnet bei Category:Germany anhalten. Es ginge ja noch weiter: Category:Europe, Category:Continents, Category:Earth, Category:Solar System... Du erkennst, dass Überkategorisierung zu Unfug führt?

Übrigens wäre es sehr sinnvoll, hier statt eines Stadtteils das Gebäude und die Straße zu kategorisieren.

Gruß, -- Ies (talk) 16:39, 3 April 2013 (UTC)

Das wäre sehr viel einfacher, wenn die Kategorien im Upload-Wizard als eine Art Baumstruktur angezeigt würde, wie im im Windows-Explorer o.ä. Dass es da eine Art Hierarchie (nicht nur semantisch, sondern technisch) gibt, war mir bis heute völlig unbekannt. Auch dass jede einzelne Straße eine Kategorie besitzt... damit hätte ich im Leben nicht gerechnet. -- Mikosch (talk) 17:47, 3 April 2013 (UTC)

Hello from me[edit]

Hi Mikosch, how are you? Could you take photos on the Vorgebirgsbahn and Rheinuferbahn?

Station recordings in Cologne[edit]

Hi, Can you record at: Kalk Post and the 4000 series on lines 12/15?-- 10:22, 18 November 2013 (UTC)

  • Hi, 4000's on 12/15 I'm currently uploading, I hope I have photos from Kalk Post as well.

Changing to Stadtbahn stations[edit]

Hi Mike, your new photos where categorized instead in the stations. Nothing wrong.--Deutz Kalker Bad (talk) 20:27, 18 November 2013 (UTC)

Deine Stadtbahn-Bilder und der Stadtbahntroll[edit]

Hallo Mikosch, zu deinen Anmerkungen auf zwei Datei-Diskussionsseiten (habe ich inzwischen gelöscht, da verwaist), wo du dich über den Klau deiner Bilder beschwertest, möchte ich anmerken, dass du völlig Recht hast.

Die Bilder waren von irgendwelchen externen Websites übernommen worden und ohne Genehmigung der Autoren hierher hochgeladen. Neben dir waren etliche andere Autoren von Straßenbahn-Bildern betroffen.

Schuld daran ist der Straßenbahn-Troll, der hier seit einigen Wochen aktiv ist. Genau er hat all die Bilder unrechtmäßig hochgeladen, und außerdem treibt er massenhaft Unsinn mit Kleinstkategorien und ähnlichem.

Bislang aufgefallen war er unter folgenden Identitäten: (talk · contribs · deleted contribs · logs · edit filter log · block user · block log), Vermenshame (talk · contribs · deleted contribs · logs · edit filter log · block user · block log), Deutz Kalker Bad (talk · contribs · deleted contribs · logs · edit filter log · block user · block log).

Ich habe die Bilder alle gelöscht und die IP + die beiden Accounts gesperrt.

Solltest du dennoch irgendwelche von den gelöschten, aus deiner Urheberschaft stammenden Bildern auf Commons haben wollen, gib mir auf meiner User talkpage Bescheid.

Mfg --A.Savin 21:27, 20 November 2013 (UTC)
