Hello, SGGH!

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.

Hi! Regarding this, what would have been the right template to request the deletion of an old version? Jafeluv (talk) 16:46, 11 June 2010 (UTC)

Hey. I'm not sure if there exists such a template. The best course of action would have been to message an admin on commons and ask them, as obviously a CSD tag is for complete deletion and (god forbid) some admin was to come along and delete the thing without reading the rationale :P SGGH (talk) 06:54, 12 June 2010 (UTC)
Hehe :) Ok, I'll find an admin next time or post at AN. Cheers, Jafeluv (talk) 08:40, 12 June 2010 (UTC)

Your Flickr uploads[edit]

Hello SGGH!

Thanks a lot for your contributions! Thank you for transferring images from Flickr to Commons! Two hints ahead:

  • Always upload the highest resolution of a photograph that is available on flickr
  • You can use this tool for your flickr uploads. It makes the whole procedure much easier and faster for you!

Thank you for your support! Greetings, High Contrast (talk) 08:53, 19 August 2011 (UTC)
