Bishop's Palace[edit]

Hello. Thanks for your work! I wanted to give you a short explanation of why I moved images in the category you created "Category:Bishop's Palace" to Category:Bishop's Palace, Galveston. The latter title is more specific, and is how the en:Wikipedia article is titled. There are many Bishop's Palaces. In fact, the category "Bishop's Palace" has been created and deleted before, referring to a different one, with the previous content moved to the more specific Category:Bishop's Palace, Kirkwall. I'm going to redelete the category, since the content (and a few other images) is now at the more specific name. (Though if you wish to research however many notable "Bishop's Palaces" there are around the world and make it into a disambiguation I wouldn't object.) I hope this meets with your approval. Thanks for your attention. Cheers, Infrogmation (talk) 17:01, 20 June 2011 (UTC)

No problem. Thanks for the heads up! --Another Believer (talk) 23:05, 20 June 2011 (UTC)

Hello, Another Believer!

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.

Thanks for the kind words and help with categories. After the holidays I hope to get back to the requested photographs, and I will do a better job categorizing. Season's best wishes! Visitor7 (talk) 08:27, 19 December 2011 (UTC)

No worries--'twas just an FYI! --Another Believer (talk) 16:44, 19 December 2011 (UTC)
