Tip: Categorizing images[edit]

Hello, Thompsma!

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.

Thanks[edit]

Hi Thompsma,

many thanks for your contributions :-) It's always nice to see experienced authors (experienced on a specific subject) adding new content to species pages on Wikipedia and here on Commons :-)

Yes, this is not an automated bot notification (as the two ones above), this is a message by a human being *g* Well, I'm leaving you this short note just to thank you and to tell you about Category:Ambystoma macrodactylum – you can easily add [[Category:Ambystoma macrodactylum]] directly when you upload new files, and they'll automatically appear on the appropriate category page then. If a species' category doesn't exist yet, you can simply use higher taxa in the majority of cases. For more info on biological content around here, see Commons:WikiProject Tree of Life.

Greetings --:bdk: 03:00, 30 December 2008 (UTC)

Hi Thompsma, in such cases as the above you can simply use {{speedydelete|Reason}}, that's less complicated ;-) --:bdk: 14:12, 6 January 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, therefore please do not send this information to me, as it will not save your images from deletion. Thanks for your time! Please help translate this message! HersfoldOTRSBot(talk/opt out) 21:45, 12 December 2009 (UTC)

Warning sign
This media was probably deleted.
A file that you have uploaded to Wikimedia Commons, File:Trophic.jpg, was missing information about where it comes from or who created it, which is needed to verify its copyright status. The file probably has been deleted. If you've got all required information, request undeletion providing this information and the link to the concerned file ([[:File:Trophic.jpg]]).

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.

Please add the required information for this and other files you have uploaded before adding more files. If you need assistance, please ask at the help desk. Thank you!

  • it's a derivative work - you used some other pictures, so you need to point your sources and their licenses. All components need to be free. Masur (talk) 07:03, 1 February 2010 (UTC)
    • And again. This is a montage of various images created by other people. If you reuse someone else work it is self evident that you make sure that the copyright holder allows free reuse and that you provide a source and attribute the original creator. In fact most freely licensed images have an attribtion requirement, otherwise the reuse is a breach of the free license and a copyright violation. You said you will fix this problem and I undeleted the image. That was 2 months ago, nothing happend, the file is still labeled as beeing 'entirely your work'. Its now deleted a second time. If you want to have it restored please provide a list of all sources and authors, I will not wait a second time to have this added post undeletion. --Martin H. (talk) 22:28, 22 September 2010 (UTC)
