Hello, Arichnad!

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").

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.

Hiya. The honest answer: I'm not entirely sure how this works. Mnation2 (talk) 23:41, 28 October 2009 (UTC)

Coloring[edit]

Why is red above dark red..? [1] --Prcc27 (talk) 06:49, 6 April 2014 (UTC)

I don't know. It was a fairly arbitrary decision. Should I just switch the two colors (c00/red and 722/darkred)? Or are there other coloring changes you'd suggest? ~a (usertalkcontribs) 20:30, 6 April 2014 (UTC)

Switching them would be fine. --Prcc27 (talk) 03:09, 11 April 2014 (UTC)

Usage share of web servers (Source Netcraft).svg[edit]

Hi. I like your chart: File:Usage share of web servers (Source Netcraft).svg. Would you mind to maintain two in the future? One for all sites and a second one for active sites. You find an explanation of the difference Netcraft: active sites and an example of two different graphs here: http://news.netcraft.com/archives/2014/04/02/april-2014-web-server-survey.html ScotXW (talk) 20:16, 8 May 2014 (UTC)

Thanks! Yes and no. Yes, I will be creating a Netcraft/active sites image. But no, I won't be updating two images: I'll stop updating the current image. You came to the same conclusion as Valerio on the talk page. I'll let you both know when I've created the new image. ~a (usertalkcontribs) 21:24, 8 May 2014 (UTC)
Coolio. ScotXW (talk) 22:04, 8 May 2014 (UTC)
Hm, I see that you also maintain this File:Usage share of web browsers (Source StatCounter).svg and all manually. Impressive. ScotXW (talk) 19:31, 8 June 2014 (UTC)
