Categories[edit]

Hi. Please categorise organisms to the lowest possible taxon. If necessary, you may have to construct some higher categories. Thanks. Lycaon (talk) 23:59, 13 November 2008 (UTC)

Hello Stho002!

Thank you for providing images to Wikimedia Commons. Please keep in mind that images uploaded to Commons should be useful to all users of Wikimedia projects. This is possible only if the images can be found by other people.

To allow others to find the images you uploaded here, the images should be in some place that can be found by navigating the category structure. This means that you should put the images into appropriate topic pages, categories, optionally galleries, or both of them (see Commons:Categories). To find good categories for your images, the CommonSense tool may help.

You can find a convenient overview of your uploaded files in this gallery.

The important point is that the images should be placed in the general structure somewhere. There are a large number of completely unsorted images on Commons right now. If you would like to help to place some of those images where they can be found, please do!

Thank you. BotMultichillT (talk) 17:56, 7 December 2008 (UTC)

Thanks for uploading Image:Astenus guttula.jpg. I notice that the file page either doesn't contain enough information about the license or it contains contradictory information about the license, so the copyright status is unclear.

If you created this file yourself, then you must provide a valid copyright tag. For example, you can tag it with {{self|GFDL|cc-by-sa-all}} to release it under the multi-license GFDL plus Creative Commons Attribution-ShareAlike All-version license or you can tag it with {{PD-self}} to release it into the public domain. (See Commons:Copyright tags for the full list of license tags that you can use.)

If you did not create the file yourself or if it is a derivative of another work that is possibly subject to copyright protection, then you must specify where you found it (e.g. usually a link to the web page where you got it), you must provide proof that it has a license that is acceptable for Commons (e.g. usually a link to the terms of use for content from that page), and you must add an appropriate license tag. If you did not create the file yourself and the specific source and license information is not available on the web, you must obtain permission through the OTRS system and follow the procedure described there.

Note that any unsourced or improperly licensed files will be deleted one week after they have been marked as lacking proper information, as described in criteria for speedy deletion. If you have uploaded other files, please confirm that you have provided the proper information for those files, too. (You can get a list of all your uploaded files using the Gallery tool.) Thank you.

Categorize properly[edit]

Please categorize your uploads properly. Organisms have to be categorized to the lowest possible taxon (species). If the higher levels do not exist, they should be constructed. There are ample examples around where you can learn from. Unlike in Wikispecies, categorization is the base of navigation at Commons. You may want to revisit all your uploads. Lycaon (talk) 05:36, 16 September 2009 (UTC)

Files only have to be categorized to some extent. There are no grounds for deletion unless they are uncategorized. Please do not try to impose your preferences on me. Thanks, Stho002 (talk) 02:41, 17 September 2009 (UTC)

Please refer me to the relevant written policy regarding this: "Organisms have to be categorized to the lowest possible taxon (species)". In what sense of "have to be"? Are you threatening to delete my files on this basis? Stho002 (talk) 21:47, 17 September 2009 (UTC)
Just keep your cool Thorpe, nobody is threatening here unless that is how I have to interpret your reply!. Just read the relevant pages at the TOL project and comply with the Commons rules and you will be fine. You know your species, so you know how to categorize it. Regards.

Greetings from Ireland[edit]

Hello Stho002! You are uploading some very interesting pics. I hope we will see many more. We are turning to the great days of visual entomology (I once had the singular pleasure of working with the Parisian artist entomologist Eugene Seguy Slainte Robert aka Notafly (talk) 21:33, 1 December 2009 (UTC)

Files you uploaded may be deleted[edit]

The files listed below, which you uploaded, have been tagged {{OTRS pending}} for more than 30 days. This tag indicates that an email setting out permission to use the file was sent to the OTRS team. Unfortunately, we cannot find any record that such an email has been received, and accordingly the file remains without permission. Unless the OTRS team receives evidence that permission has been granted within 15 days of today's date, the file will be deleted. If you have already sent the permission, please re-send it to "permissions-commons@wikimedia.org" now. Please quote the file name in your email. At the same time, please leave a message at the OTRS noticeboard so that a volunteer can follow this up. Alternatively, you can contact an OTRS volunteer directly. Please note that this message is being left by an automated bot, whose operator is not an OTRS volunteer. Thanks for your time! Please help translate this message!

file rename request[edit]

Hi, please can you change the following 3 filenames from Cis fuscipes to Cis boleti:

  • File:Cis fuscipes female.jpg
  • File:Cis fuscipes on fungus.jpg
  • File:Cis fuscipes aedeagus.jpg

Cheers, --Stho002 (talk) 20:55, 1 December 2010 (UTC)

Try {{Rename|Cis boleti female.jpg|Identification}}. It is faster. Liné1 (talk) 06:47, 2 December 2010 (UTC)


Tip: Categorizing images[edit]

Hello, Stho002!

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.

Undescribed species[edit]

Hi. I categorized File:Targaremini_new_genus_new_species.jpg and File:Targaremini new genus male brachypter.jpg under "Species without scientific names". I imagine these bug haven't been named, or you would have updated the files, so when they do get named, can you remove the category as well as updating the file names and descriptions?

Sorry to suggest something for you to do, but I think it's helpful to have a category for undescribed species. JerryFriedman (talk) 04:42, 21 March 2012 (UTC)

Cicindela parryi?[edit]

Hi, just taking time out from naturewatch (actually just trying to find more examples of Neocicindela/Cicindela), I came across File:Cicindela tuberculata 11.JPG which was illustrating the en:Cicindela tuberculata page, but it looks more like Neocicindela parryi to me ... but then I don't really know ;-). What do you think?

Parry's Tiger Beetle 11.jpg

Thanks, --Tony Wills (talk) 01:50, 6 May 2013 (UTC)

Thanks, have renamed file. --Tony Wills (talk) 21:17, 7 May 2013 (UTC)
