File:Rare-earths.gif (SVG)[edit]

If the "derivative work" option doesn't work for you, you might upload your SVG file as "own work". We can fix it later. I will have a look at your file and I will help you. -- Common Good (talk) 20:38, 26 April 2010 (UTC)

Tip: Categorizing images[edit]

Hello, BMacZero!

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.

Gymnastics icons[edit]

Hi there! It seems like we both started working on these at the same time. It's my personal opinion that these files should all be the same size (most of the PNGs are 56x56), just so that they are as clean as possible. Unless you have any objections, I'll edit the ones you've already done at some point in order to reduce the size. If you want to do this yourself, go ahead!

The one file that we now have two of I'll nominate for deletion. Again, if you have an objection, feel free to say, but there's no reason to keep both!

I've also removed all the 1s from your filenames, as this is due to the uploader bug and I assume you intend them to be direct replacements. NikNaks talk - gallery - wikipedia 16:50, 13 May 2014 (UTC)

Thanks a lotǃ That all sounds fine to me. I am done for now, so you can work on the rest without conflict. I will fix the sizes of the ones I uploaded, though. Would 30x30px be better, since that seems to be the size they're actually used at? BMacZero (talk) 16:56, 13 May 2014 (UTC)
Yes, you're right. 30x30 seems like a much better choice. I wonder why they were at such strange sizes before? Anyway, thanks for your understanding! Hopefully we'll have a full set and we can clear them off the most used rasters list.  :) NikNaks talk - gallery - wikipedia 18:16, 13 May 2014 (UTC)

BMacZeroBot and other people's uploads[edit]

I've uploaded lots of images that won't matter to this request (they're in Category:Other people's pictures by User:Nyttend, which I intentionally didn't list) that don't have certain dates, simply because the sources don't have certain dates. Of course, tons of other people's uploads don't have certain dates, whether for the same reason or because the uploaders didn't record photo dates. If possible, would we be able to run with EXIF information? And if that's not available for an image, would the bot be able to handle partial dates? I wonder about files like File:332-334 Lackawanna Avenue, Scranton.jpg (year only), File:1938 Lincoln County Courthouse.jpg (year and month), in particular; I know that totally dateless images like File:Beaver Creek Bridge in Wind Cave National Park.jpg can rely on the {{unknown}} template, and non-number dates can rely on {{Other date}} (I've uploaded some images with nothing but "Fall 1980", and those got the other date template), but outright partial dates I don't know. Nyttend (talk) 13:00, 16 May 2015 (UTC)

@Nyttend: Thanks for finding those templates. I'm currently set up to use the "Date Time Original" metadata field if there is nothing in "date=" at all - all of your photos have it, but the files you linked don't, and the metadata date they do have seems to be the date they were digitized. I'll work on integrating the Other Date template so we can handle differently-formatted dates, though we will probably still need the category to flag completely non-readable dates. BMacZero (talk) 16:48, 16 May 2015 (UTC)
"Other date" seems to be targeted toward displaying things like ranges, and/or, before/after, rather than less precise dates. I think what we want for cases where we only have month/year or just year is {{Taken in}}. We can use {{other date|?}} for totally missing dates. BMacZero (talk) 20:52, 17 May 2015 (UTC)

User:BMacZeroBot[edit]

Congratulations! It has bot status now. --EugeneZelenko (talk) 13:56, 19 May 2015 (UTC)

Great! I will start the run tonight BMacZero (talk) 16:14, 19 May 2015 (UTC)
Congrats. For some reason, the edits aren't being flagged as coming from a bot. The account has bot status, so I'm not sure why that's happening. - Eureka Lott 13:40, 20 May 2015 (UTC)
@EurekaLott: Thank you. Looks like I wasn't passing the bot URL parameter to the API correctly. I'll change that. BMacZero (talk) 15:43, 20 May 2015 (UTC)
Thanks so much for the help! I appreciate that you had the bot look for discrepancies between dates and categories; I never would have caught this obvious date error otherwise. Nyttend (talk) 12:11, 24 May 2015 (UTC)

Hi, thanks for the perspective correction of the file. I think its still a bit too expanded, the rose window looks like an oval. Could you please try it again? Kind regards --Sjokolade (talk) 04:45, 3 June 2015 (UTC)

@Sjokolade. Good catch, I figured the window was supposed to be an oval. Fixed the aspect ratio. BMacZero (talk) 05:01, 3 June 2015 (UTC)
