Tip: Categorizing images[edit]

Hello, Az1568!

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.

SpaceX public domain[edit]

Hi Az, regarding this OTRS ticket, is the public domain donation just for the existing files on Commons, or any going forward from the Flickr stream? Or, mind wiki-mailing me the non-sensitive parts of it? Thanks for the info. Huntster (t @ c) 06:15, 27 March 2015 (UTC)

It actually covers all media located on the Flickr account at https://www.flickr.com/photos/spacexphotos/ as well as the descriptions that accompany those files. --Az1568 (talk) 06:25, 27 March 2015 (UTC)

#wikimedia-commons[edit]

For the sake of transparency: some people are wondering what for you need to be op on #wikimedia-commons and how this conforms to the channel's practice. --Nemo 13:38, 24 April 2015 (UTC)

Hey, Nemo. Yes, I am quite aware that there is a very select few who are having concerns with the fact that I'm an operator of #wikimedia-commons. However the fact is, there was absolutely nothing wrong with how I went about requesting the rights there. I've known Cary as a colleague for a number of years and he's more than aware of the amount of quality work I have done in the past. He's currently a founder of that IRC channel, which gives him an exclusive right to do as he would like in regards to access and channel management there. I also made sure that I checked with Cbrown1023, another person capable of changing access on the channel and he had no real concerns, but mentioned it was best I check with Cary first. I'm honestly very troubled by the fact that this is even an issue at all. The amount of mistrust, paranoia and assumptions of bad faith I've seen... of someone who has been around as long as I have, is quite disturbing. In regards to any bans, as with all other channels I'm an operator in, Meta's m:IRC/Guidelines makes it fairly clear as to what behavior is and is not acceptable in Wikimedia-affiliated IRC channels. Should someone be persistent in disrupting the channel, and/or willfully damaging the project as a whole. It's common sense that they would be removed in the best interests of all. --Az1568 (talk) 19:53, 24 April 2015 (UTC)
