Hi - thanky for contributing to the commons. However, why do you license images under the GPL? The license is not really suitable for images - it would be better to use a different copyleft license like CC-by-sa-2.0 or GFDL (or best, both). See Commons:Copyright tags for a list of know licenses and Commons:Licensing for more details. Please also have a look at Commons:Criteria for inclusion and Template talk:Information to see what a image description page should contain.

Also, please add images to topic categories and/or gallery pages, so they can be found and used by others. Thanks! -- Duesentrieb 12:45, 3 Jun 2005 (UTC)

Hello, Yanngeffrotin!

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:


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]]

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.

Hi Yanngeffrotin. I am attempting to categorise the images at Category:Cemeteries. Can you remember where the photo at File:Cimetiere.JPG was taken? If you prefer to reply in French, that's OK. Si vous préférez de répondre en français, c'est d'accord. Skinsmoke (talk) 11:37, 8 March 2012 (UTC)
