Hello, and thank your for sharing your files with Commons. There seems to be a problem regarding the description and/or licensing of this particular file. Please remember that all uploads require source, author and license information. Could you please resolve these problems, which are described on the page linked in above? Thank you. --Siebrand 20:11, 7 August 2007 (UTC)

Categories[edit]

Hi, I came across a number of your images regarding Pigeon Creek and the Great Smoky Mountains, I have tagged them all with Category:Great Smoky Mountains National Park, some of them with Category:Rivers of Tennessee. But as I've never been there, I'm going on your description & might have misinterpreted. Can you please correct me where it's not right?

I also see you have a number of uploads that don't have any categories on it at all - It is very helpful if they are categorised, as it helps people find (and use!) them. Thanks & kind regards, Deadstar (msg) 14:37, 24 October 2007 (UTC)

  • Thanks for getting that started-- I have been procrastinating it. I'll add categories to all of my uploads sometime this week or next week.Bms4880 17:27, 24 October 2007 (UTC)
No worries, let me know if I can help. Deadstar (msg) 07:29, 25 October 2007 (UTC)

Hello!

Thank you for providing images to the Wikimedia Commons. Please keep in mind that images uploaded to the Commons should be useful to all users of Wikimedia projects. This is possible only if the images can be found by other people.

To allow others to find the images you uploaded here, the images should be in some place that can be found by navigating the category structure. This means that you should put the images into appropriate topic pages, categories, optionally galleries, or both of them (see Commons:Categories). To find good categories for your images, the CommonSense tool may help.

You can find a convenient overview of your uploaded files in this gallery.

The important point is that the images should be placed in the general structure somewhere. There are a large number of completely unsorted images on the Commons right now. If you would like to help to place some of those images where they can be found, please do!

Thank you. 78.54.220.78 13:40, 4 November 2007 (UTC)

Image:Black-mountain-slopes-east-tn1.jpg & Image:Black-mountain-karst-gc1.jpg[edit]

I love the photos in the Grassy Cove article. Unfortunately, they are of the Pennsylvanian aged sandstone caprock that develops weathering pits, not limestone and karst formation. I changed the captions, I hope that you do not mind.

If the caption is incorrect, then by all means change it! Bms4880 (talk) 18:34, 11 August 2008 (UTC)

Grace Moore monument/marker pictures[edit]

Thanks so much for posting those. It's so nice to know that she still has fans. She'll always be my favorite soprano.

It was no problem. The article still needs more portraits of her, though. Bms4880 (talk) 17:51, 10 October 2008 (UTC)

Tip: Categorizing images[edit]

Afrikaans | العربية | беларуская (тарашкевіца)‎ | català | čeština | dansk | Deutsch | Deutsch (Sie-Form)‎ | Ελληνικά | English | Esperanto | español | فارسی | suomi | français | galego | עברית | magyar | íslenska | italiano | 日本語 | ქართული | 한국어 | македонски | മലയാളം | Plattdüütsch | Nederlands | norsk bokmål | polski | português | português do Brasil | română | русский | slovenčina | slovenščina | српски / srpski | svenska | українська | Tiếng Việt | 中文 | 中文(简体)‎ | 中文(繁體)‎ | +/−


Hello, Bms4880!

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.

Cookeville Depot Museum[edit]

Brian, Regarding the Cookeville Railroad Depot shots, sharp photos with appealing perspective. Just a note on the caboose label. The caboose is a cupola style caboose, not a bay window caboose. Best regards, Joe Brown (JOCY, TN)

McMahan Mound Site[edit]

Per this [1], it would be awesome if you could get a pic of the actual mound site if it still exists. I recently started an article here en:McMahan Mound Site on what little I could find about the site and it would be great to have more than a pic of the sign. Regards, Heironymous Rowe (talk) 18:23, 8 May 2012 (UTC)

Where exactly is the mound site? I'll check next time I'm in Sevierville, but I'm just guessing the mound site has become a victim of commercial development. Bms4880 (talk) 18:28, 8 May 2012 (UTC)
From that pic, it looks like very near the Landmark Inn in Sevierville, at least it's the motel is behind the THC sign. Descriptions I've read say it was 150 ft from the river bank in that vicinity. If you can help that would be great, but no worries. Cheers, Heironymous Rowe (talk) 18:34, 8 May 2012 (UTC)

This media may be deleted.
Thanks for uploading File:Greenbelt-park-bridges-tn1.jpg. 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. If you have uploaded other files, please confirm that you have provided the proper information for those files, too. (You can get a list of all your uploaded files using the Gallery tool.) Thank you.

Yes, delete in favor of the higher-res version. I uploaded a number of LOC and NARA photos before the mass uploads from the databases a few years ago, so there are probably more like this out there. If you find them, delete them. Bms4880 (talk) 13:10, 29 April 2014 (UTC)
