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)

Monitor Calibrator available to be shipped to you on request[edit]

User Marcela has made a colorimetric monitor calibration device (eye-one display 2 by X-Rite) available to all interested parties. The device has so far been used to calibrate screens of Wikimedia users in Germany in the Nürnberg/Fürth region, and will travel via Helsinki to Stockholm and the international Photo-Workshop in Nyköping. After that it will travel to Senegal, Africa. Its further route is yet to be determined. If you are interested in calibrating your screen you may request the device to be sent to you. Software for Windows computers is packaged with the calibration device. Linux computers can be calibrated using Argyll CMS (see write-up here [1])

Yellow borders[edit]

I was doing some sorting at Commons:Quality images/Recently promoted yesterday when I accidentally closed my browser. When I opened it again, all the files I had sorted had yellow borders. The bot ignored these when sorting things this night and today they are still there and it seems I can't change them. Does anyone know what this means? Does these yellow borders only show up for my account since I made that blunder or are they visible to others? --cart-Talk 07:54, 21 October 2017 (UTC)

I'd the same problem. Sorry, I can't help, no solution. --XRay talk 09:19, 22 October 2017 (UTC)
Hi XRay, thanks for taking an interest. I've sort of figured it out by now. It seems that some residual data on the computer you use trigger the yellow borders, if you do a sorting and don't save the page the right way. I opened the page on another computer and the yellow borders were now red and "sortable". After sorting them on that computer, the files showed up green and fixed on the first computer. Those files that were still yellow could be "sorted" by not using the QI sorter tool, but by just editing the list the "old-fashioned way" and add the |{{QICbotMove|Subject/Architecture/Religious/Churches}} /whatever to those files. Just spreading the word about this in case someone else needs it. --cart-Talk 10:18, 22 October 2017 (UTC)
