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").

Колега, в Общомедия могат да се качват само свободни лога, които съдържат само прости геометрични фигури, като това на bTV. Всичко останало се качва само локално в английската Уикипедия. Другите лога е твърде възможно да бъдат изтрити от администраторите в Общомедия. Засега няма да ги трия от самите статии, но ако се изтрият от Общомедия ще ги премхна. Поздрави!--The TV Boy (talk · contribs) 14:03, 3 January 2013 (UTC)

I give up! I don't have a clue what to write to this e-mail for permission. I created this file whit Photoshop, and I agree to anyone to do whatever they whant whit it. But I don't get what you want me to send to this OTRS thing. So if you want - delete it, I realy don't know what to do.--The TV Boy (talk · contribs) 12:46, 21 March 2013 (UTC)
- This is a protected logo, so we need permission from the copyright holder, even for a self-redrawed version. --Krd 13:17, 21 March 2013 (UTC)
