Note from Raffi: Welcome to my talk page - if you're here to ask about the plant/garden photos, please read this first. This is a huge project to name and categorize the photos, then remove photos that are no longer necessary. Please help! Also, please note that it is important not to change the file names! The renaming of the files is complicated by renaming, and the natural order of the photos is interrupted, which helps with the naming and locations. If you have any questions, you may be better off emailing me (see the "Email this user" link in the toolbox), since I may not be checking this page frequently. Thanks! --RaffiKojian (talk) 20:52, 30 December 2010 (UTC)

Move out of unidentified plants[edit]

Hi Raffi,

I will move lots of your images out of unidentified plants because they are clogging that category up a bit. The other reason is, that they are actually not unidentified. Most plants are identified (by the label) they are just missing a category so they are effectively in the wrong cat. The purpose of Unidentified plants cat is, that people with knowledge go through that and identify plants. The work which has to be done with your plants does not need any knowledge but just raw time and patientes so I don't want, that experts looking through the cat are not turend off by so many actually identified images. You do have also image which are really not identified because they are missing a label. Those images are fine in Unidentified plants. Cheers, Amada44  talk to me 09:36, 12 January 2011 (UTC)

Tip: Categorizing images[edit]

Hello, RaffiKojian!

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.

Photographer Barnstar.png The Photographer's Barnstar
Hi!

My name is Edoardo Bit, I am an architect and also a “young researcher” of the University of Ferarra (Italy).

I am writing a book on the “green walls technologies” and I have found very interesting a photo in your page. So, I would kindly ask you if I can use it in my book.

Obviously, if you gently decide to grant me the permission, your name (or your nickname) and the link of the picture will be correctly cited in the credits of my publication.


The photo which I would use is: http://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/File:Gardenology.org-IMG_1975_rbgs11jan.jpg


Thank you very much! I hope you will attend my request… My e-mail is: edoardo.bit@gmail.com

Bye,

Edoardo

Ask permission for the photo "Mausoleum in Mamedbeyli"[edit]

I am writing on behalf of the Karabakh Foundation, a 501(c)3 cultural charity foundation that preserves and disseminates the cultural heritage and traditions of Azerbaijan, the Caucasus area, and the Karabakh region of Azerbaijan. I would like to request permission to use an image found on Wikipedia in an educational capacity. Specifically we request to use the images in an online educational exhibition entitled, Azerbaijan Artifacts, which presents information about coins, stamps, rug, architecture, and other artifacts related to Azerbaijan. In addition we would like permission to use the image in publicity related to the exhibition, on www.KarabakhFoundation.org, and eventually perhaps in a physical exhibition.

I am interested in using the images from http://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/File:Mausoleum_in_Mamedbeyli-IMG_8021.JPG, which called Mausoleum in Mamedbeyli. This image would perfectly help us convey the excellent of Azerbaijani nature and architecture. If this is acceptable, please let me know how to properly cite (by name, include website also, etc). If possible, I would also appreciate if you could send me high resolution copy of the image. Thank you for your help.
