Transmission icon.png Goodies, tips and tricks
  • Put Babel boxes on your user page so others know what languages you can speak.
  • All your uploads are stored in your personal Gallery
  • Please sign your name on Talk pages by typing ~~~~
  • Use the CommonSense tool to find good categories for your files (then other people can find them too!)
  • To link to an image page, write this: [[:Image:Foo.jpg]], it makes this: Image:Foo.jpg
  • If you're copying files from another project, be sure to use the CommonsHelper
Nuvola filesystems trashcan full.png Made a mistake?
  • Did you want to rename or move a file? Simply upload the file again and mark the old one like this: {{bad name|Correct name}}

Please link images[edit]

Hello - thank you for providing images to the wikimedia commons. Please keep in mind that images uploaded to the 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 category and optionally place the images on topic pages (galleries) , or do both (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 here: Gallery

The important point is that the images should be placed in the general structure somewhere. There is a large number of completely unsorted images on the commons right now. If you would like to help to place some of those images where they can be found, please do! Thank you. -Samulili 09:05, 15 July 2006 (UTC)

Veo que hablas inglés, pero pensé escribir en español porque todos entendemos mejor en nuestra lengua materna. Solamente quería decir que si quisieras ayuda en clasificar/categorizar las fotos en inglés, como pidió Samulili, estaría muy dispuesta. Mi interés particular es en fotos de El Salvador y otros países latinoamericanos. Lawikitejana 05:36, 6 November 2006 (UTC)

Intention to modify licenses on your images[edit]

Hi, I notice that on almost all your uploaded images you have used the {{cc}} template to attempt to license them. This is invalid in two ways, first the {{cc}} tag is for tagging licenses with, not images - you have effectively made each image page into a 'license' which makes no sense. Secondly the 'license' that you have attempted to create is not valid on commons because it explicitly does not allow commercial use. I note that the images are dual licensed under {{gfdl}} plus this alternative 'faulty' 'license' so I intend to just delete the 'faulty' license and leave all images licensed under GFDL. --Tony Wills 12:50, 3 August 2007 (UTC)

I am told that the non-commercial license is in fact valid when used in conjunction with a free license (so for instance it can be used commercially under GFDL), so I have re-added your non-commercial license as {{Cc-by-nc-sa-2.0-dual}} --Tony Wills 00:29, 4 August 2007 (UTC)

File migration from GFDL to CC-BY-SA-3.0[edit]

Hi, you may not be aware that "In accordance with the Licensing update and associated WMF Board Resolution, Wikimedia will be exercising its rights under GFDL 1.3 to dual license existing GFDL content — text and images — under CC-BY-SA 3.0 (Creative Commons Attribution ShareAlike 3.0) starting June 15th, 2009."^.

  • Basically files with GFDL1.2 with the "and later versions" licenses are now available under GFDL 1.3 which allows us to migrate them to a CC-BY-SA-3.0 license. I note some of the files you have uploaded or edited have the {{Cc-by-nc-sa-2.0-dual}} template which suggests to me that you may not want to expand to the more open CC-BY-SA-3.0 license.
  • I urge you to make these files more widely usable by adding a more general license yourself. But understand that this may not be possible (eg if the original is not your own work). If you are happy with the 'migration' of the license you can either widen the terms yourself or do nothing and it will be done by a bot anyway.
  • The Commons community has recognised that some people may want or need to opt-out of this 'migration' - to do so: add the text "migration=opt-out" to the license template eg {{GFDL|migration=opt-out}} or {{Cc-by-nc-sa-2.0-dual|migration=opt-out}}
I hope that this is of some use to you, don't hesitate to contact me if you have questions (although I'm not actually an expert of licensing questions :-) --Tony Wills (talk) 02:13, 4 August 2009 (UTC)
