This page is a great idea, thanks User:Yug !Metoc 19:16, 4 October 2006 (UTC)

What about artists? If I wanted someone to draw a picture, where can I find them? Do we need a new category? What about music performers? Richard001 02:12, 27 May 2007 (UTC)
Symbol support vote.svg Support I think your proposal is quite good, but it should be even wider. Let me explain:

Q:Which are the main categories of multimedia content you see when visiting the Common's Main Page? A:Images, sounds and videos. Why? Because that's the simplest way to categorize all the multimedia content here. They are the superset which any other category could be make from. It looks like the approach of these templates is going from the narrow to the wide (i.e. audio edition was included). So I suggest adding sub-categories and templates according to this scheme. For instace, painting skills (both traditional and digital), bitmap graphics and vector graphics would become part of the imagery abilities. Musical production, composition, arranging, interpretation and digital audio editing could go as a more general audio-skills category. And the same goes for video, which could include stuff such as animation, film-making, recording, etc... By the way, why are we writing above the index and all the other topics? --Isacdaavid (talk) 03:43, 26 July 2012 (UTC)

Might I suggest a Bitmap Graphics Creator Bottom Feeder option to rank oneself with? Something like a user BF-n?

BF-0 This user is able to create at a interested level on Bitmap graphics bottom feeders (PNG,...) 0 Graphics abilities

BF-1 This user is able to create at a beginner level on Bitmap graphics bottom feeders (PNG,...) 1 Graphics abilities

BF-2 This user is able to create at a intermediate level on Bitmap graphics bottom feeders (PNG,...) 2 Graphics abilities

BF-3 This user is able to create at a master level on Bitmap graphics bottom feeders (PNG,...) 2 Graphics abilities

For an "{User Encyclopedic}" template[edit]

Hello, I think it may be great to also make such template, for especially encyclopedic pics such those upload by Badagnani, Fir0002, Sting, LadyofHats. 03:08, 2 February 2008 (UTC)

Using a scanner[edit]

Using a scanner is a graphic ability — like photography, but different enough to be considered separately. Bob Burkhardt (talk) 12:49, 11 November 2008 (UTC)

update tag[edit]

Yes check.svg Resolved

Why is it not possible to put bg-X into the babel template? There is a overlapping of the language bg (Bulgarian?) - shouldn't so the babel changed/ the codeword for the bitmap editing possibilities. Regards, mabdul 12:50, 19 January 2012 (UTC)

{{user bg-1}}. All language babels have lower case letters. --Martin H. (talk) 20:23, 19 January 2012 (UTC)
But with big letters it is also not working... mabdul 21:09, 19 January 2012 (UTC)
Then this is a problem of the mw:Extension:Babel that you try to use on your userpage. Its not a problem of this page or the templates. Simply use {{Babel|...}} insted of #Babel: --Martin H. (talk) 00:08, 20 January 2012 (UTC)
Great! Thanks. Yes, it is a problem of the extension. Crazy. mabdul 11:49, 20 January 2012 (UTC)
Bugreport filled ;) bugzilla:34680. mabdul 09:22, 24 February 2012 (UTC)
issue remains as of today: if embedded in a babel template, the BG tag is interpreted as Bulgarian language ability if using the "#babel:" notation instead of "babel|". Icefield (talk) 00:47, 1 January 2017 (UTC)

Inaccurate Naming[edit]

Should "Multimedia Abilities" or something similar not be a better name for the category instead of "Graphics abilities" , given that the aim of this category is " categorize users' function of their graphical and audio abilities..." ??? --Isacdaavid (talk) 01:49, 26 July 2012 (UTC)

Just came across this page. I downloaded jpg's that Carroll Jones III sent to me. I have been in correspondence with him for over 4 years. I was amazed he agreed to put some of his work on Wikimedia. He is a brilliant and very kind man. I am honored you saw in him what I see in him!jrbwalk (talk) 03:02, 20 August 2016 (UTC)jrbwalk
