Hibiscus[edit]

Hello Nvineeth! Your Image:Hibiscus petal.jpg is not determined to species. Probably you remember, how the plant looked like. Was it Hibiscus rosa-sinensis? Was it any other species of Hibiscus? Now your photo is in Hibiscus as being unclassified. I would like to put it to the right place. Regards --Franz Xaver 07:14, 14 March 2006 (UTC)

OK, so I will put the photo into Hibiscus rosa-sinensis. Thanks --Franz Xaver 11:20, 14 March 2006 (UTC)

Tip: Categorizing images[edit]

Afrikaans | العربية | беларуская (тарашкевіца)‎ | català | čeština | dansk | Deutsch | Deutsch (Sie-Form)‎ | Ελληνικά | English | Esperanto | español | فارسی | suomi | français | galego | עברית | magyar | íslenska | italiano | 日本語 | ქართული | 한국어 | македонски | മലയാളം | Plattdüütsch | Nederlands | norsk bokmål | polski | português | português do Brasil | română | русский | slovenčina | slovenščina | српски / srpski | svenska | українська | Tiếng Việt | 中文 | 中文(简体)‎ | 中文(繁體)‎ | +/−


Hello, TheMandarin!

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.

A file that you have uploaded to Wikimedia Commons, File:Bhuvaneshwari-Devi-1841-1911.jpg, is missing information about where it comes from or who created it, which is needed to verify its copyright status. Please edit the file description and add the missing information, or the file may be deleted.

If you created the content yourself, enter {{own}} as the source. If you did not add a licensing template, you must add one. You may use, for example, {{self|GFDL|cc-by-sa-all}} or {{Cc-zero}} to release certain rights to your work.

If someone else created the content, or if it is based on someone else's work, the source should be the address to the web page where you found it, the name and ISBN of the book you scanned it from, or similar. You should also name the author, provide verifiable information to show that the content is in the public domain or has been published under a free license by its author, and add an appropriate template identifying the public domain or licensing status, if you have not already done so.

Patroller[edit]

I have granted patroller rights to your account; the reason for this is that after a review of some of your contributions, I believe I can trust you to use patrol correctly by using it for its intended usage. For information on patrol, see this page. If you do not want to be a patroller anymore, just let me know, and I'll remove it. Good luck and thanks. Huib talk 18:49, 9 October 2009 (UTC)

Spelling error in a file you uploaded[edit]

I was trying to fix this myself, but I eventually realised that I can't since my account is less than 4 days old. There's a spelling error in file:MPEG_Compression_Overview.svg determenistic should be deterministic. I'll probably forget about this before I can edit it, so I'm letting you know about it.
