Hello, Sitush!

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.

Portrait of Erasmus Smith[edit]

Left me wondering about the card (?) he was holding in his left hand. What could it be? A token of his profession, or religion? What was the meaning there? NVO (talk) 19:12, 13 November 2011 (UTC)

The ship will be a token of his trade - he was a merchant, bringing in goods from Turkey. I am unsure about the card/paper that he is holding but, yes, it probably has some sort of symbolism. Could it perhaps represent the Royal Charter that his eponymous trust received for schooling in Ireland? It does not seem "flamboyant" enough for that. Maybe a bill of exchange? - Sitush (talk) 19:53, 13 November 2011 (UTC)

Autopatrol given[edit]

Hello. I just wanted to let you know that I have granted autopatrol rights to your account; the reason for this is that I believe you are sufficiently trustworthy and experienced to have your contributions automatically sighted.

Krantverma[edit]

Can't really do anything, it's one of those things we've (or rather you've) got to live with I guess, unless of course you decide to take a walkabout! —SpacemanSpiff 03:27, 26 July 2013 (UTC)

Assistance[edit]

Hello Sitush, I'm Anup. I'm apparently new to Commons and its policies. Thought, I'll ask you assist to solve my confusion. Okay it is, Is it allowed to upload a personal image on Commons and link it within some Wikipedia article. Is there some policy/guideline to determine if it is the user's personal image or a random image? For example, File:Group_playing_Holi.jpg‎, File:Ceaholi.jpg, File:Young_man_celebrating_Holi.JPG linked within en:Wiki:Holi. File:Hindu_Wedding_Bride_receiving_blessings_Delhi_India.jpg, File:Hindu_wedding_couple.jpg, File:Vinay_neha.jpg, File:Hindu_bride_at_temple,_Nepal.jpg, File:Gaye_holud.jpg, File:A_Hindu_wedding_ritual_in_progress_b.jpg, File:Hindu_Wedding.jpg, File:Meet_friends_and_family_ritual,_after_Hindu_wedding_vows,_India.jpg, File:Shy_smile_of_a_bride_in_a_Hindu_wedding.jpg, File:WeddingMoment.jpg, File:A_Hindu_wedding_ritual.jpg, File:Hindu_marriage_blessing.jpg, File:Hindu_marriage_blessing.jpg earlier linked within en:Wiki:Vivaah(now removed). I'm really curious if they comply with Wikimedia Commons policy and guidelines. AnupMehra 18:47, 4 February 2014 (UTC)

Well, the first one cannot be transferred to Commons because we have no idea who took it - the sources is "Whats App" but there is no actual URL and therefore no means to determine the copyright status. I think that it should be deleted on Wikipedia also, although Wikipedia does have slightly different policies to Commons when it comes to copyright.
It is a complex issue and I admit to only understanding a small part of it! - Sitush (talk) 08:55, 5 February 2014 (UTC)

File:Rajmohan Gandhi (1960).jpg[edit]

This media file is NOT missing evidence of permission. It is released under CC-BY-SA which is noted in the source and recorded in the file description. Jan Arkesteijn (talk) 21:34, 20 March 2014 (UTC)

Your speedy requests[edit]

Your requests do not meet the requirements of Commons:Criteria for speedy deletion.

Per the process, "Appeal: If you think that the file does not meet the criteria for speedy deletion, please explain why on its talk page and remove this tag." I have added explanation on the talk page. I have removed the tag.

You may wish to pursue standard delete process. You will find the required procedure at Commons:Deletion requests. M Tracy Hunter (talk) 17:35, 4 July 2014 (UTC)
