Uploads from Norsk Folkemuseum[edit]

Hi Aldebaran. Good work on uploading all those images from Norsk Folkemuseum. One thing, though: Please see my edits to Image:DS Prins Olav i Molde.jpg to see a lot of important points that you might need to add to your Norsk Folkemuseum uploads. Cheers.

I was not aware that those details were necessary. Sorry. I'll go back and correct it. Thanks for notifying me. --Aldebaran (talk) 01:52, 1 November 2008 (UTC)
That's totally cool. I didn't know either a while ago. Keep up the great work. Manxruler (talk) 14:31, 8 November 2008 (UTC)

Hello, Aldebaran!

Tip: Add categories to your 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.

Here's how:

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]]

This will make the diagram show up in the categories "Astronomical diagrams" and "Comets".

When picking categories, try to choose a specific category ("Astronomical diagrams") over a generic one ("Illustrations"). Pro-tip: The CommonSense tool can help you find the best category for your image.

Thanks again for your uploads! More information about categorization can be found in Commons:Categories, and don't hesitate to leave a note on the help desk.

  • Image:MF Geiranger built in 1937.jpg was uncategorized on 20 September 2009.
    • You were right. Wrong IMO number. Sorry. If you have a Lloyd's register number: the IMO number is made by just putting IMO in front. --Stunteltje (talk) 19:47, 24 September 2009 (UTC)
      • Thanks for helping me with the categorization of this image. I just forgot to do it this time. I havent found the IMO-number, and I dont think this vessel ever had one, since it was scrapped in 1966. --Aldebaran (talk) 05:51, 25 September 2009 (UTC)
        • I doubt. Not as IMO number, but a number of Lloyd's Register. This register, with information on all sea-going, self-propelled merchant ships of 100 gross tonnes or greater, exists since 1880. --Stunteltje (talk) 06:24, 25 September 2009 (UTC)

Images of historic significance[edit]

I would agree that your variant of the image is better here, but given that the original came from the Seattle Municipal Archives, I would think that any variant should be uploaded as an other version rather than overwriting the original. - Jmabel ! talk 16:29, 3 April 2015 (UTC)

OK. I'll upload the file as a new version, and link between the two. I'll also revert my edit on the original. --- Aldebaran (talk) 11:44, 5 April 2015 (UTC)
Thanks! - Jmabel ! talk 19:17, 5 April 2015 (UTC)
