Tip: Categorizing images[edit]

Hello, Philg88!

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.

EWO and Co.[edit]

Hi Philg88! My guess would be that you should move the images under fair use to en-wiki for keeping. Let me know when you are done, I'll delete the media here. Sorry, I really like that advertising. --Hedwig in Washington (mail?) 21:07, 31 August 2013 (UTC)

Hi Hedwig in Washington. Yes, these adverts are really cool and perfectly reflect the spirit of the age. Since EWO Brewery ceased to exist sometime in the 1950s I would argue that copyright in the images vanished with it. That said, I'm happy to move all related files to en.wikipedia but, (blushes) I don't know how to do that. Best, Philg88 (talk) 06:58, 1 September 2013 (UTC)
Face-smile.svg There's no tool for that. At least as far as I know. I'd just download from here and upload on en. I think I print one out before you move them. Fair use, of course. --Hedwig in Washington (mail?) 07:05, 1 September 2013 (UTC)

┌─────────────────────────────────┘
I had a quick look at the en.wikipedia user page of the individual who requested the speedy delete. I quote another editor's comment: "I appreciate your enthusiasm but looking through your recent edits, your nominations for deletion still give me pause and you AfD's are creating a lot of unnecessary work for the community." On reflection, I think the files should stay on commons. Is there a Wikimedia person who can give an opinion as to what happens to a company's copyright on its dissolution where there is no successor in law? Best, Philg88 (talk) 07:27, 1 September 2013 (UTC)

Sure. You can do two things: Ask at the Village Pump or nominate all files for deletion and see what happens. I'd go with the village pump. --Hedwig in Washington (mail?) 15:55, 1 September 2013 (UTC)

┌─────────────────────────────────┘
Sound advice. Pump duly primed. Philg88 (talk) 18:49, 1 September 2013 (UTC)

Warring States of China Image[edit]

Hello Philg88,

I work for The Children's Museum of Indianapolis, and we are planning on using the following image for a video for our Terra Cotta Warriors Exhibit:

http://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/File:EN-WarringStatesAll260BCE.jpg

In the attribution of the image, should I attribute to you or Benjamin Trovato? I was planning on attributing to you, but I wanted to clarify, in case anything else was needed.

Thank you!

B johnst (talk) 14:52, 8 October 2013 (UTC)

Hi there, You're welcome to use that map and if you like I can upload an alternative format (PNG or similar). The file was uploaded by Benjamin Trovato because at the time I was in China and unable to upload anything and he kindly stepped in. If you want to email me instead of posting here you can do that via my Wikipedia email here. Best Regards, Philg88 (talk) 17:15, 8 October 2013 (UTC)

State of Qin map: base map cartography question[edit]

Philg88, thanks for making this series of maps available (I see above that the Warring States version has been used elsewhere):

https://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/File:EN-QIN260BCE.jpg

My question is what the underlying China base map came from? Any information (projection, source, etc.) would be helpful, I'd like to georeference some points on it from pixels into latitude/longitude. Thanks, Aldebrn (talk) 02:32, 29 May 2014 (UTC)

Hi Aldebrn and thanks for the message. This map may be of use and it also has lat/lon markers. What you see to the south west marked as SHU RA is the State of Qin. If I was doing these again now I would use SVG and cross reference that with data from OpenStreetMap or USGS. Alas, I have a lot on my plate these days so I won't have time. Good luck with the map! Philg88 (talk) 05:15, 29 May 2014 (UTC)

Æthelred, Lord of the Mercians[edit]

I see you updated the map you kindly created for this article. In case you did not notice, Æthelred was Today's Featured Article on 3 August. Dudley Miles (talk) 08:26, 6 August 2014 (UTC)

@Dudley Miles: Thanks for the tip off :) Cheers, Philg88 (talk) 09:17, 6 August 2014 (UTC)
