Tip: Categorizing images
Hello, Backslash Forwardslash!
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").

Please, talkback notices like these are completely unnecessary, and I suspect that I am not the only one who does not wish to be notified when other people write something in a deletion discussion that someone took part in. Such changes show up on my watchlist, that is what watchlists are for. /Pieter Kuiper (talk) 21:59, 9 April 2009 (UTC)
