Hello, Shanmugamp7!

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.

Welcome, Dear Filemover![edit]

Commons File mover.svg

Hi Shanmugamp7, you're now a filemover. When moving files please respect the following advice:

  • Use the CommonsDelinker link in the {{rename}} template to order a bot to replace all ocurrences of the old title with the new one.
  • Please do not tag redirects as {{speedy}}. Other projects, like InstantCommons, might be using the file even though they don't show up in the global usage. Deleting the redirects would break their file references.
  • Please know and follow the file rename guidelines.

There seems to be a problem regarding the description and/or licensing of this particular file. It has been found that you've added in the image's description only a Template that's not a license and although it provides useful information about the image, it's not a valid license. 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.

Can you please help me with license.--Camoka4 (talk) 13:57, 14 September 2012 (UTC)

Hi, In commons we can't upload fair use materials (see Commons:Licensing), so you have to upload it to the specific projects, in which you want to use that file. File:Innocence of Muslims.jpg should be speedy deleted--Shanmugamp7 (talk) 14:01, 14 September 2012 (UTC)

I found this image on Businessinsider. Can you put appripriate changes to make it fit for Commons? Thanks.--Camoka4 (talk) 14:10, 14 September 2012 (UTC)
See the bottom of Businessinsider website (* Copyright © 2012 Business Insider, Inc. All rights reserved). I'm sorry to say this, "Without a free license, it's not possible to make it fit for commons", Thanks for your understanding :)--Shanmugamp7 (talk) 14:22, 14 September 2012 (UTC)
Or if you can, get permission from author via OTRS to use that image under a free license--Shanmugamp7 (talk) 14:26, 14 September 2012 (UTC)
Just because that website has a standard copyright notice on the bottom doesn't mean they aren't violating someone else's copyright by using that screenshot in their article (though they could argue fair use). Camoka, you don't seem to get it: this is not a freely licensed image. Finding it elsewhere, changing the stated source to that, and then slapping a Creative Commons tag on it doesn't make it suitable for this particular repository of freely-licensed images! 14:50, 14 September 2012 (UTC)
Yes, you are right, maybe that website also violate copyright. This is what, i've tried to explain to Camoka, btw thanks for helping :) --Shanmugamp7 (talk) 15:41, 14 September 2012 (UTC)

File move[edit]

Thanks for moving the pages. I changed the links so that redirects File:Ford A5397 NLGRF contact sheet.jpg and File:Ford A6313 NLGRF.jpg are not needed any more. I couldn't find the maintenance speedy delete tag, so would you mind deleting both redirects. Thanks. -- Uzma Gamal (talk) 12:28, 3 December 2012 (UTC)

Hi Uzma Gama, You are welcome :). In commons, mostly we don't delete file redirects after renaming, more info can be found here. I'm not a admin here, so i can't delete those redirects. Thanks--Shanmugamp7 (talk) 13:38, 3 December 2012 (UTC)

File:Benzynowa lampa gornicza Davy'ego.jpg[edit]

"see Commons:FR#Which_files_should_not_be_renamed.3F #2)" - The fact, that this filename is not n english has nothing to do with ist. Rather, as i stated in my renamig request, "Benzynowa lampa gornicza Davy'ego" is misleading because translated into english it says: gasoline mining lamp of the Davy type. And this is not true, the file shows a special purpose device for exact measuring of firedamp. It is ethanol-operated instead of gasoline, whereas a Davy lamp would burn oil. The only similarity to the latter is that it has no glass. No gasoline/benzyn, but ethanol; no lamp, but a measuring device; no Davy, but Pieler. Lamp is of course questionable, such devices where historically named lamps, though they served not as a light source (the Davy lamp does, poorly so). Ethanol burns without a visible flame. --Markscheider (talk) 16:41, 8 January 2013 (UTC)

Hi Markscheider, The file name is in Polish lampa górnicza Davy'ego, So as per the criteria, the file may not be renamed to English (ofcourse English is not the only reason, but Polish name would be much better). Could you please suggest a correct name in Polish? Thanks --Shanmugamp7 (talk) 16:55, 8 January 2013 (UTC)
Sorry, this is beyond my knowledge. I can understand some polish, enough to understand the meaning of the filename without having to use google translate, but i can't write or talk polish. Of course "Pieler" would be the same; it's the name of the inventor. And en:Ethanol is in polish pl:Etanol, so file:Etanol lampa gornicza Pieler'ego.jpg could maybe the answer, but i'm not sure about the suffix "ego". Maybe Pieler demands a different suffix or no suffix at all. --Markscheider (talk) 17:11, 8 January 2013 (UTC)
Ok, i just renamed it as per your suggestion, It seems that the uploader is active, so I'm going to ask him/her. If s/he has any objections/suggestion then we will rename it into polish name.--Shanmugamp7 (talk) 17:18, 8 January 2013 (UTC)
That's fine for me.--Markscheider (talk) 17:23, 8 January 2013 (UTC)
I am not the specialist in mining, so I have to trust your suggestions and I agree if you know it better. I am going to correct the Polish description. Julo (talk) 20:04, 8 January 2013 (UTC)
Thank you! Some information on Pieler lamps can be found here.--Markscheider (talk) 21:00, 8 January 2013 (UTC)

Picture of the Year voting round 1 open[edit]

Dear Wikimedians,

Wikimedia Commons is happy to announce that the 2012 Picture of the Year competition is now open. We're interested in your opinion as to which images qualify to be the Picture of the Year for 2012. Voting is open to established Wikimedia users who meet the following criteria:

  1. Users must have an account, at any Wikimedia project, which was registered before Tue, 01 Jan 2013 00:00:00 +0000 [UTC].
  2. This user account must have more than 75 edits on any single Wikimedia project before Tue, 01 Jan 2013 00:00:00 +0000 [UTC]. Please check your account eligibility at the POTY 2012 Contest Eligibility tool.
  3. Users must vote with an account meeting the above requirements either on Commons or another SUL-related Wikimedia project (for other Wikimedia projects, the account must be attached to the user's Commons account through SUL).

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. From professional animal and plant shots to breathtaking panoramas and skylines, restorations of historically relevant images, images portraying the world's best architecture, maps, emblems, diagrams created with the most modern technology, and impressive human portraits, Commons features pictures of all flavors.

For your convenience, we have sorted the images into topic categories. Two rounds of voting will be held: In the first round, you can vote for as many images as you like. The first round category winners and the top ten overall will then make it to the final. In the final round, when a limited number of images are left, you must decide on the one image that you want to become the Picture of the Year.

To see the candidate images just go to the POTY 2012 page on Wikimedia Commons

Wikimedia Commons celebrates our featured images of 2012 with this contest. Your votes decide the Picture of the Year, so remember to vote in the first round by January 30, 2013.

Misericords in Caen[edit]

Hello, these misericords date from the 17th century, the author has been dead for nearly 400 years. Why “Speedy Delete — blanked by author” --Roi.dagobert (talk) 07:43, 3 February 2013 (UTC)

Hi Roi.dagobert, Galleries should have at least one media. Per Commons:Galleries Galleries without media are not galleries at all. They are considered out of the project scope and meet the criteria for speedy deletion. . Misericords in Caen is empty, so it meets the criteria for speedy deletion. If you would like to keep this gallery, please add some images , Thanks --Shanmugamp7 (talk) 07:53, 3 February 2013 (UTC)
OK, but this one is good: Thank you--Roi.dagobert (talk) 08:04, 3 February 2013 (UTC)
