Tip: Categorizing images
Thanks a lot for contributing to the Wikimedia Commons! Here's a tip to make your uploads more useful: Why not add some categories to describe them? This will help more people to find and use them.
1) If you're using the UploadWizard, you can add categories to each file when you describe it. Just click "more options" for the file and add the categories which make sense:
2) You can also pick the file from your list of uploads, edit the file description page, and manually add the category code at the end of the page.
- [[Category:Category name]]
For example, if you are uploading a diagram showing the orbits of comets, you add the following code:
- [[Category:Astronomical diagrams]]
When picking categories, try to choose a specific category ("Astronomical diagrams") over a generic one ("Illustrations").

王世貞 (politician of the Ming Dynasty) and 王士珍 (politician of the Qing Dynasty and the Republic of China) have the same prononciation in Mandarin as Wang Shizhen. Thus please create another file name for 王士珍 and do not just upload a new version . Thanks. (In fact the photo of 王士珍 already exists here as File:WangShizhen.jpg.

File source is not properly indicated: File:Song_Ziliang.jpg

Tokyo: Asahi Shimbun.) on "File:Song_Ziliang.jpg". And of course this image doesn't infringe on any copyrights. Please explain me about your real intention.

I don't really know how to use wikipedia, I'm sorry, but I would like to email you regarding some original photographs I have of Chinese collaborators of the Nanjing regime. I was hoping you might be able to help me identify certain people. My email is: email@example.com
