Hello, Pic-Sou!

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.

BS Icons[edit]

SVP, before creating new icons, please check the catalogue and sub-pages to ensure that they do not already exist. Merçi. Useddenim (talk) 14:37, 17 June 2011 (UTC)

Thank you for providing images to Wikimedia Commons. Please keep in mind that images and other files on Commons must be under a free license and should be useful to the Wikimedia projects. To allow others to use your files, some additional information must be given on the description page. Most importantly:

  • Describe what it is about in a short sentence. (What does the image show?)
  • State the author and the date of creation. If you made it yourself, say so explicitly. If it is from another Wikimedia user, link to the person's local user page. Best to use CommonsHelper.
  • If you did not create the file yourself, state the source you got it from.
  • Add a copyright tag - images without an appropriate license tag will be deleted.
  • Add the image to one or more gallery pages and/or appropriate categories, so it can be found by others. To find out where an image belongs, you can use CommonsSense.

If you copied the file from another wiki, please copy all information given there and say who uploaded it to that wiki. Use CommonsHelper.

It is recommended to use Template:Information to put that information on the description page. Have a look at Template talk:Information for details of the use of this template.

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.

Please add as much information as possible. If there is not sufficient information, the file may have to be deleted. For more information, follow the Commons:First steps guide. If you need help or have questions, please ask at the Help desk.

Thank you.

File:BSicon uKRZ+l.svg[edit]

What makes this version better? Useddenim (talk) 20:42, 23 July 2011 (UTC)

The turn is now as thick as the straight lines. --Pic-Sou (talk) 20:46, 23 July 2011 (UTC)
There's a reason the icon was drawn the way it was: so that the turn would be clear. (Many of the crossing + junction icons are deliberately drawn that way. This may be the most extreme example: BSicon uvKRZ4d.svg.) Useddenim (talk) 21:53, 23 July 2011 (UTC)
OK. I see you reverted. But why are these icons drawn that way ? --Pic-Sou (talk) 08:20, 25 July 2011 (UTC)
Narrower lines are used within complicated icons so it is possible to see all the paths. BSicon uvÜST.svg and BSicon vÜSTo+r.svg are some other examples. Useddenim (talk) 12:01, 25 July 2011 (UTC)
The width of a track is 100px that's why I'd go for the alternative design! Those thin lines are to "fragile". a×pdeHello! 16:01, 15 August 2011 (UTC)
Excuse me, I don't understand (my english is not very well...). Will you create new icons with 100px tracks ? --Pic-Sou (talk) 17:21, 15 August 2011 (UTC)
Actually, I favour the look of your version. Nevertheless your svg-file is far to big for such a tiny icon ;-) a×pdeHello! 17:28, 15 August 2011 (UTC)
OK... --Pic-Sou (talk) 17:30, 15 August 2011 (UTC)

File:Chris Watson's Australian flag proposal.svg[edit]

That wording would normally be taken to indicate white at far left and far right (i.e. 13 stripes, not 11)... AnonMoos (talk) 16:09, 18 May 2012 (UTC)

Yes, you are right. I will fix it as soon as possible.
Pic-Sou (talk) 16:13, 18 May 2012 (UTC)
It seems to be OK. --Pic-Sou (talk) 21:08, 18 May 2012 (UTC)

It seems to match the description now. It only struck me because I once made File:Bosk-Port-Kar-ship-flag-Norman-Gor.svg ... -- AnonMoos (talk) 23:10, 18 May 2012 (UTC)

Picture of the Year 2013 R1 Announcement[edit]

Round 1 of Picture of the Year 2013 is open![edit]

2012 Picture of the Year: A pair of European Bee-eaters in Ariège, France.

Dear Wikimedians,

Wikimedia Commons is happy to announce that the 2013 Picture of the Year competition is now open. This year will be the eighth edition of the annual Wikimedia Commons photo competition, which recognizes exceptional contributions by users on Wikimedia Commons. Wikimedia users are invited to vote for their favorite images featured on Commons during the last year (2013) to produce a single Picture of the Year.

Hundreds of images that have been rated Featured Pictures by the international Wikimedia Commons community in the past year are all entered in this competition. These images include professional animal and plant shots, breathtaking panoramas and skylines, restorations of historical images, photographs portraying the world's best architecture, impressive human portraits, and so much more.

For your convenience, we have sorted the images into topical categories. Two rounds of voting will be held: In the first round, you may vote for as many images as you like. The top 30 overall and the most popular image in each category will continue to the final. In the final round, you may vote for just one image to become the Picture of the Year.

Round 1 will end on . Click here to learn more and vote »

Thanks,
the Wikimedia Commons Picture of the Year committee
