This is probably the worst name for a category. Rocket000 13:32, 18 October 2007 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Well, it does contain all images on commons. --rimshottalk 13:42, 18 October 2007 (UTC)Reply[reply]
Sorry, you're right, it's a good name for probably the worst category ever. Rocket000 20:43, 19 October 2007 (UTC)Reply[reply]
Surely this is the best name, coz every image are copy from original, when you rename it, so therefore images are from images. Aadesig (talk) 23:13, 26 July 2008 (UTC)Reply[reply]

I noticed there isn't a category solely for maps. I would assume that's a very large category and can't see why it should be allowed a separate category all its own. Jchap1590 (talk)

Does no one monitor this page?? Jchap1590 (talk) 13:19, 3 September 2013 (UTC)Reply[reply]

maps --> information graphics --> graphics --> images. this category is not a great place to start your navigation, as its so abstract. and i have no idea if its monitored.Mercurywoodrose (talk) 07:35, 13 September 2013 (UTC)Reply[reply]

nupest from Portugal[edit]

User Nupest!Nupest 3:06, 15 January 2014 (UTC) / 10:06, 15 January 2014 (Bangkok/Phnom Penh/Ho Chi Minh time)

I'm honestly surprised that 4 forms of German, at least (Boarisch, Standard German, German Sie-Form and Alemanisch), 2 forms of Portuguese as well (Brazilian and Iberian), 2 forms of French as well (Occitan and French), and 3 forms of Chinese, as well as Asturian (who almost noone speaks), and no Swahili, no Khmer, no Maratha, no Gujarati, no Urdu, no Punjabi, no Telugu, no Burmese, no Armenian, no Azeri, no Kazakh, no Uzbek, no Bulgarian, no Amharic, no Serbian????

Quite surprised indeed!

Actually, the description of this category is only available in German and English as far as I can tell. Feel free to post a translation to a new language here. The other two boxes are widely-used templates, that's why they have so many translations. If a translation doesn't exist, no-one was ready, willing and able to do it. If you feel up to provide a translation in your favourite language, follow the respective instructions at Template:Categorise and Template:CatCat. --rimshottalk 19:08, 1 April 2014 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Category for discussion: Graphics[edit]

I can't post the template on the main category page, so I'll add a link here. Your input would be welcome. - Themightyquill (talk) 08:04, 10 February 2016 (UTC)Reply[reply]


How many images does Wikimedia Commons have? All media here: images + sound + video = 33,016,128 (currently). An other quantitatively large image database I know of is "The Big ImageBoard (TBIB)": (currently 5,301,244 images). —User000name 06:04, 28 August 2016 (UTC)Reply[reply]

@Bert Niehaus: I'm not sure what you are referring to, do you have a screenshot? The Help Desk has a lot more traffic, you may post a new section on the bottom of that page.   — Jeff G. ツ 05:09, 15 November 2017 (UTC)Reply[reply]

I want to delete my own photo uploaded to commons !! Is it possible ? ثعلب شبه الجزيره (talk) 15:45, 3 June 2020 (UTC)Reply[reply]

@ثعلب شبه الجزيره: your most recent upload was on November 2013 (see [1]), so deleting is not possible, unless there are copyright problems--Estopedist1 (talk) 05:39, 4 June 2020 (UTC)Reply[reply]

I've found disturbing content, what should i do[edit]

I think this image is deliberetly and probably maliciously disturbing, What do i do with this image and other content like it? Ryukenden873 (talk) 11:44, 27 August 2020 (UTC)Reply[reply]

It looks like that one has been dealt with, but for anyone with this question for other works, there are a few steps.
  1. Review Commons:Project scope and determine if the file is within the acceptable guidelines for inclusion.
  2. If not in scope, nominate the file for deletion at COM:DR, preferably explaining why it is not in scope.
  3. If in scope, remember that many files may be disturbing for some users, but still serve a valid educational purpose here. For some types of files, specific categorization can help avoid 'surprise' exposure where not expected, while making the file still available for its educational purpose.
  4. Even in scope, if a file is truly problematic, raise the question on DR or elsewhere and see if others agree that the file should be deleted, or have specific suggestions on how that particular file should be handled.

Image addition and usage policy wrt caste/community pages of India[edit]

Dear Senior Editors I want to bring to your notice there is lots of recent attempts by some editors ( who may have their biases) to add unverified image saying it belongs to a particular community. I hope you know in India one community dislike the other, and there is high chances this fighting comes to wiki as well and that some vested editors will try to exploit grey zones wrt image usage policy ( as some part of it is not clear) on Wikipedia to score points over rival community which they may not like. There is question of WP:DGF on the behalf of editor, WP:REL on page in such cases. I would humbly request that as senior editor and Admin if you people can decide a more stringent policy wrt image usage. Lots of unverified images are being used ( cannot verify them in any journal, old book etc) and they are being shown as community picture. In many case it doesn't satisfies the WP:REL.

Please what is copyright? I get this message of "you have to own the copyright of the work you are uploading ". How do l obtain a copyright? Christmas videos (talk) 19:50, 25 June 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply]

@Christmas videos: You've hopefully found your answer by now, but the short version is that whoever created a work owns the copyright - the photographer for the photograph, the painter for the painting, etc. If the work is based on another work - a photograph of a sculpture, music used in a video, the sculptor and the musician still own part of the copyright, and the derived work cannot be licensed without their consent. The long answer can be found on our license page. --rimshottalk 06:26, 27 October 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply]


Is there a special place for uploading of pictures that would appear on wiki's picture of the day? If yes What are they criteria required? Christmas videos (talk) 19:58, 25 June 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply]
