English: See and update the Latest Status for All Languages at English Commons:Help page maintenance/Further key help pages. You may create your language page (translated page) for referance, but in that case, please be sure to update the English Master page. Otherwise, please make the direct link to this English page for the easy way.

Here are further help pages that are useful for people that get involved deeper into Wikimedia Commons. In order to keep the number of pages in Commons-namespace small and maintainable and in order to avoid duplicate work help pages not about Wikimedia Commons but the MediaWiki-software itself will be moved to Meta-Wiki as the MediaWiki handbook is updated only there by the developers on a regular basis. Also pages about collaborations and such will be moved to Meta-wiki as they affect the whole Wikimedia Community and are better kept in the designated central place - the Meta-Wiki.

Tasks[edit]

Page has been moved from Commons:Criteria for inclusion to Commons:Project scope and has been completely rewritten in English. It has been merged with Commons:Copyright and partially with the only historical relevant Commons:Project plan. Several parts of the content were moved into Commons:First steps and Commons:File types. So it needs to be retranslated and renamed in all other languages as well. Also the translations of Commons:Copyright need to be redirected to the respective translation of Commons:Project scope and the project plan should be unlinked in other articles and Commons:Project scope article should be linked instead.

Tasks[edit]

Copyright tags need to be reviewed and considered if it makes sense reducing the amount of very narrowly related templates that do not differ in their license conditions but source only in order to increase usability for normal people.

Commons:Categories[edit]

Existing languages[edit]

There is an outdated German version as well: Commons:Kategorien

Tasks[edit]

Rewriting and explaining the category structure of Commons and giving a clear policy in order to avoid that people add zillions of categories to an image and in order to avoid too deep hierarchy. Related to that it needs to explain as well how to create category trees like the ones now sitting in Category:Commons category schemes (of course these category schemes are instranslateable).

Extending the page topic in order to explain when people should use categories and when galleries (Maybe changing the name to a more generic name).

English version needs to be written first to a translation.
