Please give images good descriptions
I noticed you've uploaded one or more images and I thought I should turn your attention to a common error.
Please give some thought to writing a good description of uploaded images. This ensures that they can be used. It also helps those that review and improve categories do a better job, which also ensures that images will get used in novel and interesting ways. Thanks, and happy editing! __ ABF __ ϑ 10:19, 3 October 2007 (UTC)
- Ok, thx. I thought the flickr tool would be enough but I can add further info. Wikidemo 10:30, 3 October 2007 (UTC)
- If there is already a category for this specific building, place your files there, but do not overcategorize the files!
- If there is no appropriate category pertaining to the building in question and you have more than two pictures, create a new category named after the building (for example Category:Eiffel Tower or Category:Kresge Auditorium). The name of the category should be consistent with Commons:Categories#Category names. Then categorize the new category (not each single picture in the category!) as follows:
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!
