Tip: Categorizing images[edit]

Hello, Ruigeroeland!

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.

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.

Re: Images from ZooKeys[edit]

Not sure, everything's backlogged right now (not to mention that another collaboration is already in the line as soon as I finish uploading the Zookeys image). Just check it once in a while and see if there's update. OhanaUnitedTalk page 21:55, 15 February 2010 (UTC)

Categories[edit]

I'm always up for creating new species categories, so next time you upload files, just categorize into the (non-existent) species categories and I'll make make them for you. No need to add the genus one too. This is especially true for Lepidotera where every species is in a species category (nothing higher unless further identification isn't possible). For other organisms I sometimes just make a genus category, so it's fine for anything else. Rocket000 (talk) 00:29, 24 February 2010 (UTC)

Oh, and please remember to get the highest res files from Forestry Images. Signing up really is easy. Rocket000 (talk) 00:32, 24 February 2010 (UTC)

americana[edit]

Try and figure this one out: File:Euxoa americana.JPG. I put it in Category:Scriptania americana but now I'm having doubts. I based it on a couple random books (like [1]), but then I saw the cards on LepIndex: [2] & [3] . The question is what americana Blanchard is it. The dates are confusing too. It's 1852. The 1903 is sensu Hampson, and I guess this isn't the true americana so it belongs to Agortis. What do you think? Rocket000 (talk) 00:23, 4 March 2010 (UTC)

Confused[edit]

tl;dr - Don't read this unless you're in the mood to do some thinking.

Ok, you said you thought you had this figured out so hopefully you can help. I moved Gillmeria tetradactyla to Gillmeria ochrodactyla, but after reading Case 3081 for the third time, I came to the opposite conclusion you did (sorta). It is talking about the conservation of Gillmeria (or Platyptilia) ochrodactyla (Denis & Schiffermüller, 1775) and that the name was currently in use. In fact, they explicitly call it "the name which has always been used". What happened was it was discovered that a specimen of Phalaena tetradactyla Linnaeus, 1758 belongs to that taxon and since Linnaeus' name is older, his name should be used instead (according to the rules), however, tetradactyla was already used for 2 other species. So the proposal was to essentially suppress Linnaeus' name (which only the Commission can do, and did) and continue to use ochrodactyla. No change there. The other 2 species they say are currently known as something else. In other words, there is no tetradactyla in any genus as of now. I guess people started using tetradactyla for ochrodactyla before this thing was announced, but what we have labelled as tetradactyla could actually be something else. We have two pictures: File:Gillmeria tetradactyla.jpg and File:Platyptilia tetradactyla pupa.jpg which are either Merrifieldia tridactyla (I think what you called Platyptilia tetradactyla in the en:Gillmeria ochrodactyla article), Merrifieldia leucodactyla, or of course, Gillmeria ochrodactyla. I'm leaning towards it not being ochrodactyla because that name "has always been used" at the same time someone identified these and they for some reason didn't call it that. Also, looking at the two in that article makes me think they are different, unless that's sexual dimorphism. (Phalaena tetradactyla Linnaeus, 1758 is sometimes written as Phalaena Alucita tetradactyla causing some sites, like funet, to call it Alucita tetradactyla I suppose, there's also another date floating around, 1761, but for my sanity, I'm going to say that's just wrong...) Rocket000 (talk) 05:19, 6 March 2010 (UTC)

Damn! But I am guessing you are right. I am not a native speaker (dont know if you are?) so this whole mess was terribly confusing to me. Would you mind altering the wikipedia articles too? After reading all this I still have a head thats spinning! :) Great work on all the recent uploads by the way! I am really happy that there are that many "micromoths" among these. Pictures off those are hard to find. I also made this: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_moths_of_Great_Britain_%28Micromoths%29 on wikipedia. It was the only thing missing from the UK moths articles and I thought it would be nice to have seeing the recent flood of micro moth articles. Ruigeroeland (talk) 17:20, 7 March 2010 (UTC)

About those articles, it's like cropping, I need to be in the mood, but I'll get to it eventually. :) Rocket000 (talk) 04:09, 10 March 2010 (UTC)

Yes, they are the same. The book had some pictures with updated taxo (i.e. they checked some synonymity for us allready). Hey, no worries! Take your time..! Ruigeroeland (talk) 07:51, 10 March 2010 (UTC)

Veel foto's[edit]

Beste Ruigeroeland, Ik wil je graag wijzen op een bron met veel vrije foto's. Het gaat om http://www.boldsystems.org. Ik heb daar de laatste paar dagen al het nodige moois gevonden en geupload, bijvoorbeeld File:Archiearis infans1.jpg. Als je bij die pagina op "Page at boldsystems.org" klikt, dan krijg je een soort minioverzicht. De foto met de wat hogere resolutie kun je krijgen door uit het URL van de foto uit het minioverzicht de /_w300 weg te halen. Mijn indruk is dat er bijvoorbeeld op het gebied van nachtvlinders in Noord-Amerika flink wat is te vinden. Misschien kun je er ook gaan grasduinen. Plaats in elk geval bij geuploade foto's {{LicenseReview}} zodat de licentie wordt geverifieerd en vastgelegd. Groet, Lymantria (talk) 06:49, 23 March 2011 (UTC)

Taiwan[edit]

Hoi Ruigeroeland, Ik kom komende paar dagen niet toe aan het verder uploaden van de Taiwanese foto's. Jij doet dat veel sneller (dat komt wel deels omdat ik ook steeds de categorie aanmaak). Ik ben gekomen tot http://www.flickr.com/photos/hsuhong/sets/72157614774734713/detail/?page=10 de foto van Antheraea pernyi. Als jij het verder opneemt vind ik het prima, anders wordt het ten vroegste ergens volgende week dat ik doorga. De uploads van deze set moeten vrijwel allemaal gedraaid worden over 90 graden...

Didn't notice who uploaded the image, and that tagging for deletion sent you this automated message. I've been tagging a lot of other images you uploaded from Bugwood as under noncommercial licenses, especially those from the Connecticut Agricultural Experiment Station Archive—these appear to have always been under noncommercial licenses. (Here's one I'm about to tag: File:Lithophane innominata.jpg.)
I've also been uploading the full resolution copies of Bugwood images—I think you have uploaded some more recently; if not, you only need to register, for free, to do so. Here are some other bits of advice: tag images with {{licensereview}} so a trusted user can verify the license when uploading from most sites. About BOLD Systems, to get the full size images, remove the "/_w300" from the URLs; and "no rights reserved" does not imply public domain so {{Copyrighted free use}} is correct (as I've been told). —innotata 22:01, 10 March 2012 (UTC)
Yeah, In the early days I was under the impression that non commercial was ok for wikipedia, I have since learned it is not. I uploaded tons of Bugwood images last year, but registered for those, as someone else pointed out you could upload better quality images that way. Older ones might be of lesser quality still. Thanks for cleaning them up. I will use your tips from now one if I dont forget. Cheers! Ruigeroeland (talk) 23:08, 10 March 2012 (UTC)

Stigmella pyrivora[edit]

Dag Ruigeroeland (ben je een ruige user?) Ik zag dat je mijn bijdrage zonder commentaar verwijderde, ik had nét niet de tijd mijn eigen fout te corrigeren. Het was de deze afbeelding in te voegen. Lotje ʘ‿ʘ (talk) 16:40, 14 March 2012 (UTC)

Hoi Lotje, dat is een bijnaam (vooral sarcastisch aangezien ik dat juist niet ben) van vroeger die ik zo leuk vond dat ik 'm nog steeds gebruik.. :) Ik snap wat je wilde doen.

Foto's van invertebradosdehuesca[edit]

Hallo,

Ik zie dat je een reeks foto's van http://www.invertebradosdehuesca.com aan het uploaden bent naar Commons.

Is er een reden dat je niet de hoogste resolutie upload?

Voor http://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/File:Polyommatus_fulgens.jpg heb ik zelf al een hogere resolutie geüploaded, maar het is nogal erg veel werk om dit manueel voor alle foto's te doen.

mvg, Donarreiskoffer (talk) 12:48, 20 March 2012 (UTC)

Zelfde opmerking voor http://www.lepiforum.de/

vergelijk bijvoorbeeld eens http://www.lepiforum.de/lepidopterenforum/lepiwiki/pics/erstb_6/06647_Ostrinia_palustralis_pl_20_fig_129.gif met de foto die jij uploadde (File:Ostrinia palustralis ill.JPG). Donarreiskoffer (talk) 12:52, 20 March 2012 (UTC)

Hi, Could you precise the name of the creator. Thanks.--Pixeltoo (talk) 12:18, 21 March 2012 (UTC)

I have no idea, sorry. Ruigeroeland (talk) 12:47, 21 March 2012 (UTC)
You can't declare {{PD-Old}} for any work if you don't know precisely the author and the year of his/her death. It's quite plausible that the person who published his work in 1910 died after 1941. If you don't want your files being deleted and account blocked you have to “waste” some time looking for biographies of their creators. Mithril (talk) 20:18, 4 April 2012 (UTC)

Red categories[edit]

Hallo! Looking through you contributions I found that you have used more than 150 red categories in the last 20 days. Please either put files into existing categories of higher level or create these categories. Being put into red categories these files cannot be seen by users who are interested in categorization of biological images. Mithril (talk) 22:06, 4 April 2012 (UTC)

Hi Mithril, I use the species as a cat on request of another user when I just started out uploading files on commons, but a quick look at that users activity shows he or she is no longer active. I think back in the day he would find my uploads and create the cats afterwards. I would gladly add higher level cats if this is preferred. Is it okay if I put them in the family cat so others can catch them? I am mainly working on wikipedia and only use commons to upload images for use on wikipedia. I dont really feel like spending too much time on creating a Tree of Life here on commons next to writing the articles. I understand others mainly work on commons and would like to keep things tidy over here. Just tell me what type of cat works best and I will use that in future. Ruigeroeland (talk) 08:53, 5 April 2012 (UTC)
Well, “blue” categories of family or genus level are always better than “red” categories of any level. However turning “red” category into “blue” one takes several seconds. Mithril (talk) 09:24, 5 April 2012 (UTC)
Ah, yes, that is indeed quite easy. I will make the cats in this manner from now on. Thanks! Ruigeroeland (talk) 10:46, 5 April 2012 (UTC)
Always welcome. Templates {{Extracted}}, {{Extracted from}} and {{C}} can be useful also while you're extracting parts of plates. See for instance File:NovitatesZoologicae18_Pl03.png, File:Palaeomolis palmeri.JPG and their history of edits. Mithril (talk) 11:49, 5 April 2012 (UTC)

Flickr foto'tjes[edit]

Hoi Ruigeroeland, Ik kwam deze fotostream tegen met het nodige dat jou ook wel zal interesseren. Helaas lang niet allemaal op naam. Zo nu en dan doe ik er een paar uploads vandaan. Groetjes, Lymantria (talk) 05:46, 28 September 2012 (UTC)

Cool! Dank. Ik ben nu nog ff druk met Afrikaanse vlinders. Nog een paar honderd en ze staan allemaal op de Engelse wiki, inclusief synonymen en ondersoorten. Heb ook landenlijsten van alle Afrikaanse landen (m.u.v. Libie). Wellicht interessant voor de NL wiki op termijn? Groet. Ruigeroeland (talk) 16:46, 28 September 2012 (UTC)
Zeker, dank. Maar jouw tempo kan ik niet bijhouden... :P Groetjes, Lymantria (talk) 17:08, 28 September 2012 (UTC)

Started Volume 13 Fauna Africana here [4] It willl take some time to work through this becausemy plates are in systematic not volome order Notafly (talk) 16:13, 28 October 2012 (UTC)

Yes I'll add the names and categories. The text is available at Biodiversity Heritage Library (perhaps Internet Archive) but if you look back at the plates you will see the names there (not all are species or accepted now but usually on FuNet).I kept hoping Fauna Africana would appear on the web but I am enjoying renewing my acquaintance with this wonderful work. All the best Robert aka Notafly (talk) 19:21, 28 October 2012 (UTC Done: [5], [6], [7], [8], [9], [10], [11], [12], [13], [14], [15], [16], [17], [18]

Greetings R As you can see I am back to Africa butterflies. Starting with the difficult Acraea. Warm regards and thanks for the fix (s?) Robert aka Notafly (talk) 11:58, 5 October 2013 (UTC)

File:Novitates Zoologicae1900PlateXII.jpg[edit]

I assume the category C. cedreatis on this page, and its usage as such on swedish wikipedia is incorrect? It should be C. achaemenes? - which it certainly resembles. JMK (talk) 10:05, 20 November 2013 (UTC)

potentially major problems with your Hampson files[edit]

Hi. I have noticed, on some of your uploads of Hampson's plates, that for some reason you switched the captions on the plates. I cannot tell how often you made this mistake but I found at least one example, and it alone seriously compromises a fair number of images (19 of them), with potentially disastrous results, as all of those mis-named images are being linked to by a variety of Wikipedia pages, in multiple languages. This image [19] is definitely Plate CCVIII, and figures 3, 4, 8, and 9 are Speiredonia species, while the remaining figures are Enmonodia. The text that you have pasted, which is theoretcially supposed to correspond to this plate, lists figures 1, 4, 5, 6, and 9 as Cyligramma!!! This text appears to be the captions from plate CCIX [20]. Plate CCIX has Cyligramma in figures 1, 4, 5, 6, and 9, and the corresponding captions you list have Speiredonia as figures 3, 4, 8, and 9 - indicating that somehow you switched the captions on these two plates! As a result, ALL of the extracted files you created are of the wrong taxa, for both plates. I respectfully request that you fix the images associated with these plates, delete the extracted files you created that had the wrong names, and post new files of the plates with the captions that actually go with them, and make new extracted files that can replace the deleted files. Hopefully you did not make this mistake elsewhere! Dyanega (talk) 17:49, 15 August 2014 (UTC)
