Hello, Becritical!

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.

Warning sign
This media was probably deleted.
A file that you have uploaded to Wikimedia Commons, File:Pregnancy collage.jpg, was missing information about where it comes from or who created it, which is needed to verify its copyright status. The file probably has been deleted. If you've got all required information, request undeletion providing this information and the link to the concerned file ([[:File:Pregnancy collage.jpg]]).

If you created the content yourself, enter {{own}} as the source. If you did not add a licensing template, you must add one. You may use, for example, {{self|GFDL|cc-by-sa-all}} or {{Cc-zero}} to release certain rights to your work.

If someone else created the content, or if it is based on someone else's work, the source should be the address to the web page where you found it, the name and ISBN of the book you scanned it from, or similar. You should also name the author, provide verifiable information to show that the content is in the public domain or has been published under a free license by its author, and add an appropriate template identifying the public domain or licensing status, if you have not already done so.

Please add the required information for this and other files you have uploaded before adding more files. If you need assistance, please ask at the help desk. Thank you!

For example one photo used in this montage - File:Pregnancy 26 weeks.jpg - is published under a Creative Commons Attribution license. The authors granted you permission to reuse this photo under that license, but you MUST fulfill the license requirements. Thats very simple, you must attribute all authors of the work. Provide your sources. --Martin H. (talk) 00:46, 25 November 2011 (UTC)

I think it is self-evident not to just klick on "this file is my own work" because it not is entirely your own work. Klick on "its not my own work" and include all sources and all authors, maybe including your own montage work. If you missed that in the upload process I also think it is self-evident to care for good sourcing and correct attribution immidiately following the successful upload. --Martin H.

Yes, thanks for the response, and the following is not against you. But that's utter bullshit, I went though that "it's not my own work" thing, couldn't find a way through the maze, ended up not being about to upload. Saying that it was "Under copyright from other images already in commons" as I did [1] should have been completely sufficient. If anyone wants to challenge it, they should go find out that I was lying about it. I'm just experimenting now:
Now tell us why you are sure you have the right to publish this work:
I found it on the Internet -- I'm not sure
Upload this file without copyright information for now. I understand this file may be deleted.
The copyright holder published this work with the right Creative Commons license
The copyright holder published their photo or video on Flickr with the right license
The copyright has definitely expired in the USA
This work was made by the United States government
Another reason not mentioned above
The license is described by the following wikitext:

Nope. No slot for what I did. No wonder Wikipedia doesn't have many pictures. Becritical (talk) 01:55, 25 November 2011 (UTC)

We not talk about the licensing, we talk about sources. Upload Wizard -> upload -> This file is not my own work. -> Source: provide links to the files you used -> Author: provide the names of all authors. Thats it.
Now comes the license selection. See Commons:Collages, you can create collages of freely licensed media files if the licenses are compatible. In this case you used File:Pregnancy 26 weeks 1.jpg and others. That file is published under a free Creative Commons license. The right option of your above selection is: The copyright holder published this work with the right Creative Commons license. The license selection then is either Creative Commons Attribution 3.0 or Creative Commons Attribution 2.5. --Martin H. (talk) 17:58, 25 November 2011 (UTC)
Um, okay thank you. I suppose this may be one of those cases where it all makes so much sense to those who understand it that.... anyway maybe this is why they hire writers to do tech manuals... anyway, thanks (: Becritical (talk) 02:56, 27 November 2011 (UTC)
