I'm not all anybodys! Sarah777 (talk) 22:44, 31 October 2008 (UTC)

Sorry, you're on my watchlist but I haven't been around much lately. What's the story with Mp517 editing your userpage - if this is some kind of cross wiki stalking just drop me a hint and I'll give them a warning. Regards, Finn Rindahl (talk) 23:16, 31 October 2008 (UTC)
Hi. This is some trolling I think. Never came across this editor before. Regards Sarah777 (talk) 01:47, 1 November 2008 (UTC)
OK, I left a warning - but it's probably a one-time account (hasn't editing anywhere but your pages). Not likely that we'd be seing them again (under that username anyway). Regards, Finn Rindahl (talk) 09:04, 1 November 2008 (UTC)
Thanks Finn. Sarah777 (talk) 10:55, 1 November 2008 (UTC)

Hello, Sarah777!

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.

Done! How to remove the tag?? Sarah777 (talk) 12:08, 19 July 2009 (UTC)

Tagging[edit]

Hello,

The licence is ok, but you have to put the source. For exemple, the information for IMGLaragh 4991w.jpg are limited to "Pub in Laragh Village, County Wicklow, Ireland". It's ok for the description, but the author and the source (own work) are not indicated. Okki (talk) 00:32, 9 February 2009 (UTC)

You can add this template :


== Summary ==
{{Information
|Description=
|Source=own work
|Date=
|Author=[[User:Sarah777|Sarah777]]
|Permission=
|other_versions=
}}

Categorisation of uncategorised images[edit]

Recently (well, last month - isn't instantaneous communication wonderful ;) ) you asked how to categorise images. The answer is that it's really simple - just find the category you want to put the image in and then add [[Category:Blah]] at the bottom of the image (i.e. the same way you categorise an article at Wikipedia). Images should be in the most specific category that applies, and as many that apply.

Finding categories is slightly more difficult, although still easy. I find the best way is to navigate to a highish level category and then traverse the category tree until you find the most specific one that applies. For example, if I wanted to categorise of Dublin I'd go to Category:Dublin and then find the appropriate sub-category, and then look for sub-categories of that, etc. until I found the most specific one that applies.

Commons:Help desk would be my guess for a place to ask if you want a quicker response than the next time I happen to log on to Commons! Thryduulf (talk) 22:55, 17 May 2012 (UTC)

Thank you for your contributions. Your image or other content, File:NovemberAtTheSea.JPG, was recently deleted, or will soon be deleted, in accordance with our process and policies, because it was not, or is not, within our scope. Please review our project scope, but in short, Commons is targeted at educational media files including photographs, diagrams, animations, music, spoken text and video clips. The expression “educational” is to be understood according to its broad meaning of “providing knowledge; instructional or informative”. Wikimedia Commons does not contain text articles like encyclopedia articles, textbooks, news, word definitions and such.

If the content seems to fit the scope of one of those other projects, please consider contributing it there. Otherwise, consider an alternative outlet. If you think that the deletion was in error because the contribution really was in scope, you can appeal it at Commons:Undeletion requests, giving a reason why it fits our scope to help others evaluate the matter. Thank you for your understanding.
