Hello, SimonTrew!

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.

I deleted this and requested deletion for the same reason on hu.wp hu:Fájl:Nemeth.JPG. The reason: see ( The source of the image not supports the public domain claim made on hu.wp, it was copied there without any information who the correct copyright holder is and without any evidence of permission to a free license. The image is by far not old enough to be Public Domain. --Martin H. (talk) 13:57, 29 November 2009 (UTC)

The same for hu:Fájl:000b Preisich Gábor.jpg (File:Preisich Gábor.jpg). The image on hu.wp has the "license" Template:PD-ineligible. A photo is never to simple for copyright, that license cant be correct. Please select the correct licenses, the license on hu.wp was hu:Sablon:Közkincs-nemjogosult and not a Creatice Commons waiver license. The license sais that the image is to simple for copyright and not that the copyright holder had waived all copyrights. Thats a very important difference. Also please transfer all information from the original. You transfered "Source 000b_Preisich_G%C3%A1bor.jpg at HU:WP" - and whats with the original source information? See your welcome box above: If you transfer images to Commons please make sure to use the CommonsHelper. --Martin H. (talk) 14:06, 29 November 2009 (UTC)
OK, well I have to take your word for it, but how I see it, if it is on Hungarian WP as being stated as being public domain, it is reasonable for me to move it to Commons when translating and Interwiking. I do try my best here to preserve the original information but I must admit I do find it a bit tricky sometimes to get it right first time. I can understand that if you believe it is not properly attributed, it is reasonable to delete it. I also wanted to transfer, which again is stated as being in the public domain. I won't bother to upload it until I have your advice, because if it falls at the same fence we are just making work for each other.
I do assure you of my best intentions. Many other files that are claimed to have limited licenses I have not transferred from HU:WP, but these were plainly marked as being in the public domain. SimonTrew (talk) 14:36, 29 November 2009 (UTC)
I of course believe you edit in best faith. I admite that it it is not common knowledge that Template:PD-ineligible not covers photographic works, so please excuse if it sounds like I demanded you to know this. Bad here is the hu.wp that they not maintain their images and license selection. Nothing is public domain without a reason, possible reasons are 1) released by copyright holder, needs written evidence 2) to simple for copyright 3) Copyright expired for some reason in COM:L.
hu:Fájl:NémethLászló SzilágyiErzsébet79.jpg is presumably public domain because the author (Csurla) released the photograph into the public domain. hu:Sablon:Közkincs-saját is Template:PD-self, the copyright holder released the image into the public domain. Following Commons:Copyright tags (first section, public domain) you should use {{PD-user-w|projectcode|projectname|username}}, that means {{PD-user-w|hu|Hungarian Wikipedia|Csurla}}. --Martin H.

Pay attention to copyright
Wikimedia Commons does not accept fair use content. Fair use laws vary from country to country, and uses that are acceptable under US law, for example, may not be acceptable in many other countries with more restrictive rules.

Also, fair use is only applicable in a few limited contexts. The use of a media file in one context may be considered fair use, while the use of the same file in another context may constitute copyright violation. In particular, fair use does not extend to the collection and distribution of media files in a media database such as Commons. Therefore, Commons cannot legally rely on fair use provisions.

Non-free content that may be used with reference to fair use may be uploaded locally to projects which allow this.

Privatisation of MÁV??[edit]

Good and important pictures :-)! But!

"presumably as part of the privatisation if MÁV"

Oh, no, no... This government is not a great privatisator, the current national goal is the total nationalisation of public services: gas, electricity, water, motorway system, including the railways. The real reason of rebranding is the reconstruction: the building was renovated as of the original plans few months ago. The owner is the MÁV, but the building has a new operator: the Sülysáp local council.

Beroesz (talk) 21:20, 18 March 2014 (UTC)
@Beroesz: Ah, I didn't know that. The rebranding seems a bit patchy, Mende I think still has the old branding but Sulysap has the new one. They opened the new pentztar at Szolosnyaralo about two weeks ago, and very nice it looks too. Please excuse my lack of accents etc but I am on an English keyboard. Did I put in false information if so it should be removed? Tanulok a kicsit magyarul, és OK nap es nap de nem super. I have some nice pictures of Keleti and I think I added one to Keleti pályaudvar they are doing a nice job there and it is starting to look very beautiful, and good old Baross is back in his rightful place on the tér, it is looking quite nice. SimonTrew (talk) 10:08, 21 March 2014 (UTC)
You get totally different information from the English side of the MÁV site. We better take this out if it is incorrect and add the link you gave. But it does seem to me on the whole that en:Victor Orban is doing what en:Margaret Thatcher did in England in the early 1980s, encouraging people to stand on their own feet and not be subsidised etc. I didn't like her then and Hungarians don't like him now, but it was necessary and looking back it made the UK better but people didn't like it. But Wikipedia is not a place for politicising so perhaps that comment should somehow be changed or removed – I don't know how to do that.
My brother-in-law told me a joke that there is a poem going around along the lines of en:House That Jack Built that a light-bulb now on MÁV costs 20.000Ft because it has to go through seven different levels of organisation (this is essentially what en:Cyril Northcote Parkinson argued in his book and en:Parkinson's law, "Work expands to fill the time available for its completion". But since the vonat is so cheap compared to British railways there is obviously something askew one way or another. I do not want to get all political but we should report the facts straight and if I put something in that was wrong please take it out. SimonTrew (talk) 11:38, 21 March 2014 (UTC)
