This is the talk page for discussing improvements to Commons:Quality images.

Procedure for adding images to this page and subpages
The current procedures for adding images that have been promoted through QIC (either as listed by QICBot or manually from Consensual_review after a decision has been posted) are:

  1. ) Add images to the top of the appropriate gallery(s) on the main page. NB some sections have subgalleries. It may be appropriate to add an image to more than one section.
  2. ) Trim the gallery down to 4 images or only those newly added that day if more than 4. (images are normally left for at least one day on the main page, so I normally leave any overflow until I add the next days images).
  3. ) Add the image to the top of appropriate galleries on sub-pages. Some pages have many subsections and subgalleries. Also note that some galleries contain natural groupings. --Tony Wills 09:24, 25 October 2007 (UTC)
Also note that within the natural groupings there maybe further subgroups, though not necessarily subdivided by headers. When in doubt you can always ask me. Lycaon 09:32, 25 October 2007 (UTC)


Two of the three images at the collapsed (default) view of Commons:Quality images#People# are lingerie shots. Can we be more diverse? Andy Mabbett (Pigsonthewing); Talk to Andy; Andy's edits 21:12, 15 February 2020 (UTC)

Pigsonthewing The images on that page are added by QICBot in an automatic sequence as they are promoted and sorted. For the n:th time we are discussing how to deal with the sorting of galleries and it seems like we might be getting somewhere this time. Please check out the discussion at the previous post (Categorization responsibility) and see/say what you think. --Cart (talk) 21:21, 15 February 2020 (UTC)
In my view, as opposed to FPs, we don't need to avoid promotion of QIs for diversity reasons. The QI tag should be awarded to every photograph that stands within QI standards. The abundance of lingerie shots and other clothing related pictures might actually suggest that we need a new category, Commons: Quality images/Subject/Clothing.

Categorization issues[edit]

How can I categorize road signs, office buildings and buildings with shops? While there is "/Subject/Objects/Statues, Monuments and Plaques", I am not really sure whether this is also good for road signs. And I do not know whether the buildings I mentioned qualify as "Subject/Architecture/Public Buildings" or possibly as "Subject/Architecture/Agricultural and Industrial". Also, how can I categorize mats of algae when there is no category for macroscopic images of algae at all? --Robert Flogaus-Faust (talk) 14:18, 1 May 2020 (UTC)

Category:Quality images from Wiki Loves Africa 2020 in Morocco[edit]

Hi, can someone have a look into this cat. I have the impression none of them are quality images. Thx. --JuTa 00:26, 11 May 2020 (UTC)

✓ Done JuTa, quite right, they were not. The category was just a collections made by enthusiastic User:Rachidourkia. I've removed the images from the category and left a message to the user about QIs. Thanks for finding this mistake. --Cart (talk) 06:37, 11 May 2020 (UTC)
