Tip: Categorizing images[edit]

Hello, Alexrk2!

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:

Uploadwizard-categories.png

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]]
[[Category:Comets]]

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.

Need one of your graphics on my new page[edit]

Alex

Can you add one of your graphics on my page LaDue Reservoir

English: Location map of Ohio, USA Equirectangular projection, N/S stretching 130.0 %. Geographic limits of the map: 41° 23′ 19″ N, 81° 11′ 50″ W

Thank you Dan

Hm, I have no idea what you want me to do. --Alexrk2 (talk) 18:40, 11 September 2011 (UTC)
The map looks great. Thank you, Dan

Request[edit]

Hi Alexrk2. I noticed that you are the author of File:Europe laea location map.svg. I've used your map as a template a couple times. Thanks for that. I wonder if you are able to make a version which also includes Greenland? I'd like to make a map of the Norway and her dependencies in the 13th century; so the map would feature locations in Scandinavia, the British Isles, Iceland and Greenland, etc. File:Europe laea location map.svg is perfect except it only grazes Greenland. Can you make a version with Greenland included?--Brianann MacAmhlaidh (talk) 05:17, 12 September 2011 (UTC)

That's OK. Don't worry, I'll figure something out.--Brianann MacAmhlaidh (talk) 04:04, 22 September 2011 (UTC)

Category:Dorfkirche Bohnsdorf[edit]

Hallo, irgend etwas stimmt mit Deinen Änderungen in Berlin bei den Denkmalen nicht. Im Text steht da: [[Category:Cultural heritage monuments in Berlin-{{{Ortsteil}}}]]. Ich glaube nicht, dass das richtig ist. MfG -- ClemensFranz (talk) 19:03, 2 May 2012 (UTC)

Hi, ja das liegt an der Vorlage. Die wurde mal um den Parameter "Ortsteil" erweitert, mit dem Problem, dass jetzt überall wo der Parameter noch fehlt, dieser Text im Fließtext steht. Ich kenne mich mit den Vorlagen leider auch nicht sonderlich aus, um es selbst beheben zu können. Hatte auch schonmal in der Vorlagenwerkstatt angefragt - bislang aber ohne Feedback. --Alexrk2 (talk) 22:25, 2 May 2012 (UTC)
Danke für die Antwort. Wenn ich diesen Fehler nochmal sehen, ändere ich das dann entsprechend. Eine andere Frage: Ich habe viele Bilder hochgeladen, die noch nicht in der Category:Clemens Franz sind. Kannst Du so etwas machen? -- Clemens Franz (talk) 16:12, 3 May 2012 (UTC)
PS: die Frage gilt natürlich nur, wenn Du einen BOT betreibst. -- Clemens Franz (talk) 18:55, 4 May 2012 (UTC)
Müsst mir das mal anschauen, ob das geht (sofern es nicht mehr als ~5000 sind). --Alexrk2 (talk) 17:35, 6 May 2012 (UTC)
Ich wollte mich nochmal bedanken für die Arbeit. Gab eine Menge Mails. -- Clemens Franz (talk) 19:12, 4 June 2012 (UTC)

Request[edit]

Hello. I saw that you created the locator map for Maryland (File:USA Maryland location map.svg). If it isn't a problem, I was wondering if you could make a locator map for the city of Baltimore? Solar-Wind (talk) 14:42, 11 December 2012 (UTC)

Do you mean a location map similar like this map? --Alexrk2 (talk) 20:09, 12 December 2012 (UTC)
Yes, that was the kind of map I had in mind. I edit a lot of Baltimore articles for buildings/monuments, and the locator map for Maryland is too large to clearly show their location in Baltimore. Solar-Wind (talk) 23:59, 12 December 2012 (UTC)
I have created the map and template.. en:Template:Location map United States Baltimore. Btw. in the other Wikis we have integrated the OpenStreetMap-Widget directly as a embedded, collapsible window. Look for example at the article de:Brooklyn and click on the hyperlink "Karte" (upper right corner). I don't know, why EN didn't use the embedded OSM map, but I guess, this would supersede these static city location maps in most cases. --Alexrk2 (talk) 21:49, 13 December 2012 (UTC)
Hmm, I didn't know about that. Thank you very much for the map, I greatly appreciate it. Solar-Wind (talk) 22:59, 17 December 2012 (UTC)

Picture of the Year voting round 1 open[edit]

Dear Wikimedians,

Wikimedia Commons is happy to announce that the 2012 Picture of the Year competition is now open. We're interested in your opinion as to which images qualify to be the Picture of the Year for 2012. Voting is open to established Wikimedia users who meet the following criteria:

  1. Users must have an account, at any Wikimedia project, which was registered before Tue, 01 Jan 2013 00:00:00 +0000 [UTC].
  2. This user account must have more than 75 edits on any single Wikimedia project before Tue, 01 Jan 2013 00:00:00 +0000 [UTC]. Please check your account eligibility at the POTY 2012 Contest Eligibility tool.
  3. Users must vote with an account meeting the above requirements either on Commons or another SUL-related Wikimedia project (for other Wikimedia projects, the account must be attached to the user's Commons account through SUL).

Hundreds of images that have been rated Featured Pictures by the international Wikimedia Commons community in the past year are all entered in this competition. From professional animal and plant shots to breathtaking panoramas and skylines, restorations of historically relevant images, images portraying the world's best architecture, maps, emblems, diagrams created with the most modern technology, and impressive human portraits, Commons features pictures of all flavors.

For your convenience, we have sorted the images into topic categories. Two rounds of voting will be held: In the first round, you can vote for as many images as you like. The first round category winners and the top ten overall will then make it to the final. In the final round, when a limited number of images are left, you must decide on the one image that you want to become the Picture of the Year.
