Hello, Ceradon!

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.

Warning sign
This media may be deleted.
A file that you have uploaded to Wikimedia Commons, File:NGA New HQ.jpg, is missing information about where it comes from or who created it, which is needed to verify its copyright status. Please edit the file description and add the missing information, or the file may be deleted.

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!

Does the source I added correct the problem? --Ceradon (talk) 23:01, 2 December 2011 (UTC)
Hallo Ceradon, I have moved your comment to here (from my talk page) to keep it at my message about this.
The new source is not much better. There I can see a photo of the same structures - but it is really not the photo you have uploaded here. Just tell me/us where the photo is from which you have uploaded.
I give you an example, that would be a good source: ""
Note that this is just a example of a proper source - we couldn't use this photo since it is by a photographer from the press agency AP which are not public domain or freely licensed. If something is a work from the US federal government we can use it in many cases: List of copyright indication tags. Cheers --Saibo (Δ) 23:13, 2 December 2011 (UTC)
First of all, Thank you for being so nice to me. Basically all the admins Ive met have made snobby remarks. Nice to know bad apples don't ruin the whole bunch. And this link I think is a good source. It shows where I got the pictures from and it says clearly that it was taken by a federal employee. Regards --Ceradon (talk) 23:21, 2 December 2011 (UTC)
You're welcome. :-) You want to learn and want do it right - perfect - so I try to explain it. Better once right than frustrated users and continuing bad uploads.
That is a slide show and the link always brings the visitor to the first image - so "image 3/11" would be needed to locate the image properly. image 3/11 -- full image
This makes it clear: first where the author/license information is from and second what the exact image is. Obtaining such an image link is not always possible nor easy. Here I got it my clicking on the image to see the full size view and then by right clicking it and selecting "copy image address".
I have made some changes to the file page now.
I am not fully sure that "Photo: National Geospatial-Intelligence Agency" means that it was shot by an employee of this agency. Couldn't it mean "we got the photo from the NGA"? Do you know of other copies of this photo? Cheers --Saibo (Δ) 00:00, 3 December 2011 (UTC)
There is this one: [1] directly from the website but it varies from the current image
Okay thanks, have added it on the file page. Not really 100% satisfying. ;-) Anyway, I think we can keep this. Cheers --Saibo (Δ) 00:59, 4 December 2011 (UTC)

Autopatrol given[edit]

Commons Autopatrolled.svg

Hello. I just wanted to let you know that I have granted autopatrol rights to your account; the reason for this is that I believe you are sufficiently trustworthy and experienced to have your contributions automatically sighted. This will have no effect on your editing, and is simply intended to help users watching Recent changes or Recent uploads to find unproductive edits amidst the productive ones. Thank you. — Tanvir | Talk ] 01:46, 11 December 2011 (UTC)

Thank you, Tanvir. -Ceradon (talk) 01:48, 11 December 2011 (UTC)

I am now proud owner of a TUSC account!

Welcome, Dear Patroller ![edit]

Hi Ceradon !

You now have the Patroller right and may call yourself a patroller ! Please take a moment to read the updated Commons:Patrol to learn how Patrolling works and how we use it to fight vandalism.

As you know already, the patrolling functionality is enabled for all edits, not just for new-page creations. This enables us to keep track of, for example, edits made by anonymous users here on Commons.

We could use you help at the Counter Vandalism Unit. For example by patrolling an Anonymous-edits checklist and checking a day-part.

If you have any questions please leave a message on the CVU talkpage or ask for help on IRC in #wikimedia-commons.--Morning Sunshine (talk) 16:40, 4 March 2012 (UTC)

US rank insignia[edit]

I noticed you made a few insignia moves with the rationale "More appropriate as new name follows the US pay grade system". I object to this because US pay grade system isn't as important as the STANAG which provides equivalence to individual rank insignia. It is my belief that we should follow the STANAG rather than individual countries pay grades as sch standard naming convention makes template programming much easier. -- とある白い猫 ちぃ? 13:47, 23 March 2012 (UTC)== File:The West House near Malvern Hill.jpg == This media has been deleted.
