Hello, Alexchris!
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").

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.

Nice Wikipedia maps[edit]

pretty and interesting!

Hello Alexchris, I just found your maps of Wikipedia language versions[1]. Awesome! I would like to use them in articles but the map files do not provide the data source. I think it must be the Wikimedia Traffic Analysis Reports, but which version/archive? Could you add the data source to the map files? (Best would be the data, the source and a direct link) I really love that you made maps out of these stats. The only other maps of this kind that i know are from Ziko File:WP_countries_and_versions_Europe.png, File:WP countries and versions in Northern Africa and the Middle East.png and File:WP breakdown Arabic.png (you might also like File:2011-Haifa-Global-Edits-Views.pdf). They are older and different, but based on the same data and very interesting (are there more?). I have looked a bit at your other uploads and I'm impressed, awesome work! --Atlasowa (talk) 12:59, 25 March 2012 (UTC)

Thanks for uploading File:Chinese Wikipedia Page view ratio by country 201210-201309.png. I notice that the file page either doesn't contain enough information about the license or it contains contradictory information about the license, so the copyright status is unclear.

If you created this file yourself, then you must provide a valid copyright tag. For example, you can tag it with {{self|GFDL|cc-by-sa-all}} to release it under the multi-license GFDL plus Creative Commons Attribution-ShareAlike All-version license or you can tag it with {{PD-self}} to release it into the public domain. (See Commons:Copyright tags for the full list of license tags that you can use.)

If you did not create the file yourself or if it is a derivative of another work that is possibly subject to copyright protection, then you must specify where you found it (e.g. usually a link to the web page where you got it), you must provide proof that it has a license that is acceptable for Commons (e.g. usually a link to the terms of use for content from that page), and you must add an appropriate license tag. If you did not create the file yourself and the specific source and license information is not available on the web, you must obtain permission through the OTRS system and follow the procedure described there.

Note that any unsourced or improperly licensed files will be deleted one week after they have been marked as lacking proper information, as described in criteria for deletion. If you have uploaded other files, please confirm that you have provided the proper information for those files, too. If you have any questions about licenses please ask at Commons:Village pump/Copyright or see our help pages. Thank you.

File:Cereal production estimate 2020.png[edit]

Hi, did you actually mean to have both sides of zero as negative in this image? File:Cereal production estimate 2020.png -- Machine translation/機械翻譯: 您好。請看看你已經在這裡創建的圖表:File:Cereal production estimate 2020.png 難道你真的打算在右側的數字為負數? 請原諒翻譯任何錯誤。 Thank you --BurritoBazooka (talk) 18:25, 12 December 2015 (UTC)

You are receiving this message because you voted in R1 of the 2015 Picture of the Year contest.

Dear Alexchris,

Wikimedia Commons is happy to announce that the second round of the 2015 Picture of the Year competition is now open. This year will be the tenth edition of the annual Wikimedia Commons photo competition, which recognizes exceptional contributions by users on Wikimedia Commons. Wikimedia users are invited to vote for their favorite images featured on Commons during the last year (2015) to produce a single Picture of the Year.

Hundreds of images that have been rated Featured Pictures by the international Wikimedia Commons community in the past year were entered in this competition. These images include professional animal and plant shots, breathtaking panoramas and skylines, restorations of historical images, photographs portraying the world's best architecture, impressive human portraits, and so much more.

There are two total rounds of voting. In the first round, you voted for as many images as you liked. In Round 1, there were 1322 candidate images. There are 56 finalists in Round 2, comprised of the top 30 overall as well as the top #1 and #2 from each sub-category. In the final round, you may vote for just one or maximal three image to become the Picture of the Year.

Round 2 will end on 28 May 2016, 23:59:59 UTC.

File:COVID-19 cases in mainland China by Prefectures.png requires updating[edit]

Hi Alexchris,
Thank you for your contributions to Commons. I noticed File:COVID-19 cases in mainland China by Prefectures.png is out of date. Arunachal Pradesh and the Senkaku Islands are not controlled by the PRC. Could you update it? Thanks again. Geographyinitiative (talk) 00:50, 11 March 2020 (UTC)

Arunachal Pradesh and the Senkaku Islands are not controlled by the PRC and hence are not included in the concept of "mainland China", which generally refers to territories actually administered by the PRC. As it stands, this is not a map of present-day mainland China (PRC). It includes territory administered by another nuclear power (Arunachal Pradesh in India) as part of mainland China and puts the Senkaku Islands in China when they have been under Japanese administration during the 21st century and are claimed by Taiwan (ROC) as well. I have hidden the map from English Wikipedia's mainspace pending update. --Geographyinitiative (talk) 23:35, 12 March 2020 (UTC) (modified)

Iran COVID-19 map: sources?[edit]

Hi. Could you please provide the source(s) for your recent updates? Please add them to the "source" section in the file description. Cherkash (talk) 00:10, 18 March 2020 (UTC)

And I would like to ask you kindly to continue updating the file. The last version is of 2020-03-20, since you did not mention the source, no one else has updated it, I guess. Kind regards, --A doubt (talk) 12:30, 29 March 2020 (UTC)

If you created this file, please note that the fact that it has been proposed for deletion does not necessarily mean that we do not value your kind contribution. It simply means that one person believes that there is some specific problem with it, such as a copyright issue. Please see Commons:But it's my own work! for a guide on how to address these issues.
