Hello, Berntisso!

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:


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]]

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").

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.

"English is the official working language [of the government!!] in South Sudan and Zambia."

It is in Zimbabwe or Kenya etc. as well, which means it is official in government publications and probably obligatory in parliament, but not the native or primary language of those two countries respectively its people. Funnily, I've heard the Zambian ambassador to Germany on a conference once, and English definitely is not his mother tongue... Did you read the legend at all? Gotta be reverted to light blue. 14:45, 12 October 2011 (UTC)

Here and here. English seams to be the main language, at least in South Sudan, with national song and all in English. --Berntisso (talk) 18:07, 13 October 2011 (UTC)
First of all, it is not very intelligent - and fair - to just change links clandestinely so that the other commenter looks like an idiot. Secondly, they still do not make any sense respectively do not fund your blurry statements (in contrast, they support correctness). Thridly, why do you always hide the constructive criticism in this thread? Do you have something to hide? 10:22, 16 October 2011 (UTC)
Squeezing in, those two links you gave here do not make any sense in this matter. How do you back up a blurry phrase like "English seems to be the main language, at least in South Sudan..."? And what does this tell us about your accuracy regarding Zambia?
Furthermore, almost all African countries name their official as their national language and have their anthems, constitutions etc. written in it. So you would have to put any francophone or lusophone (or anglophone) country on the respective map in dark blue, too. BUT: it is NOT the mother tongue of their people nor is it a primary language in the streets. By putting Zambia and S-Sudan in the same color as, for instance, England, you simply give misleading information. And you could have easily known that by just reading the map's legend before editing things that demand a little more expertise. Revert to light blue, for quality's and correctness' sake. 13:22, 14 October 2011 (UTC)

Thank you for reverting to the previous version. 19:12, 16 October 2011 (UTC)

Thanks for uploading File:Sixteenth stellation of icosahedron facets.png. I notice that the file page either doesn't contain enough information about the license or it contains contradictory information about the license, so the copyright status is unclear.

If you created this file yourself, then you must provide a valid copyright tag. For example, you can tag it with {{self|GFDL|cc-by-sa-all}} to release it under the multi-license GFDL plus Creative Commons Attribution-ShareAlike All-version license or you can tag it with {{PD-self}} to release it into the public domain. (See Commons:Copyright tags for the full list of license tags that you can use.)

If you did not create the file yourself or if it is a derivative of another work that is possibly subject to copyright protection, then you must specify where you found it (e.g. usually a link to the web page where you got it), you must provide proof that it has a license that is acceptable for Commons (e.g. usually a link to the terms of use for content from that page), and you must add an appropriate license tag. If you did not create the file yourself and the specific source and license information is not available on the web, you must obtain permission through the OTRS system and follow the procedure described there.

Note that any unsourced or improperly licensed files will be deleted one week after they have been marked as lacking proper information, as described in criteria for speedy deletion.
