Please give images good descriptions
I noticed you've uploaded Image:VillaGuerrero.jpg and I thought I should turn your attention to a common error.
Please give some thought to writing a good description of uploaded images. This ensures that they can be used in more than one way. It also helps those that review and improve categories do a better job, which also ensures that images will get used in novel and interesting ways. Thanks, and happy editing! -- Bryan (talk to me) 20:16, 5 January 2007 (UTC)

Hi. Your Image:USCommutePatterns2006.png and Image:USCommutePatterns2006(2).png are very interesting images. Do you have them in a non semi-log scale? To use a log scale on a percentage is, in general, not a great idea since all numbers are the same order of magnitude, plus in these cases, it takes what could be a straight line and introduces an artificial bend.--126.96.36.199 22:30, 3 July 2008 (UTC)
- It also makes LA look like it has half the mass transit usage of NYC and Phoenix like one quarter.--188.8.131.52 22:31, 3 July 2008 (UTC)
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"). Pro-tip: The CommonSense tool can help you find the best category for your image.

Typo in LA Metro Map
Just a small point: in your wonderful map of present and planned metro lines in Los Angeles, there is a small typo in the station name "Wilshire/La Cienga". I think it should be La Cienega. Thanks for your great work and graphics! Sbretzke
Hello: You created a wonderful graphic USCommutePatterns2006.png Thank you for that effort.
On it you list all of the 25 largest cities except Detroit. I think you just made a very understandable human error. Detroit is the 11th largest city in the United States and has a large commuter population, almost all of whom drive single occupancy cars.
Keep up the good work. Wikipedia needs more graphics like yours.
