Please properly use the source field

Hi Sourcefield,
Thank you for your contributions to Commons. I noticed you used an invalid source somewhere on Commons. Please beware that the source-field is very important and should also be as machine-readable as possible and re-usable for a third party. A source like "Me", "Self", "My camera", "google", "some website" is invalid and may result in deletion of the file if no valid source is given in time. Please be as specific in your source as possible. For example the name of the book and the page number, or a link to source webpage (not just the website in general, but to the exact page the file was on, or if you created the file your self use {{Own}}. {{Own}} is a localized (translated) template that adapts to the user interface language. Thanks again.
