Hello, Chris55!

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.

Hello Chris55,

the following content you uploaded is not free and therefore has been or will soon be deleted:


The Wikimedia Commons (this website) only hosts media files which can be used for any purpose, including:

  • use in any work, regardless of content
  • creation of derivative works
  • commercial use
  • free distribution

See Commons:Licensing for the copyright policy on Wikimedia Commons, and Commons:Image casebook for some specific examples. Some other Wikimedia projects have different licensing policies. For example, the English Wikipedia allows fair use of sounds and photographs. This is not the case on Wikimedia Commons; "fair use" materials are not acceptable here.

Please make sure that you only upload works you have created yourself, those which are out of copyright, or those for which you have the required permission for the work to be used in all the ways described above. Please note that derivative works of copyrighted material are also considered copyrighted. Again, please read through Commons:Licensing, which is quite crucial to understanding how Wikimedia Commons works. Thanks for your contribution, and please do leave me a message if you have further questions.

And also:

Yours sincerely, Hedwig in Washington (mail?) 06:59, 19 August 2014 (UTC)

user:Hedwig in Washington, this very definitely was published under a free licence which was why I uploaded it. It's fairly unusual for British Government documents and it's important to keep it in view as subsequently there have been attempts to hide it. I gave the evidence and I'd need to go back and check it. I don't check this user page regularly. Chris55 (talk) 07:58, 22 August 2014 (UTC)
It happened because no verifyable source was given, only a generic one. See: Com:Essential information. Can you recover a reliable source? I'd be very happy to restore the files. Please let me know. Thanks! --Hedwig in Washington (mail?) 14:20, 22 August 2014 (UTC)
I've reread the notes I made at the time and they weren't as positive as I remember. The British government introduced an Open Government Licence with much fanfare but it is not the default, as in the US, but must be explicit. There is no copyright notice on the September dossier but that's not enough in Britain (despite being still available from websites including the BBC.) So whereas it's usable in the US because it's an official government statement, it would require a statement from the British government to establish open copyright in Britain. Given that the official (Chilcot) inquiry is still stalled it may not be worth asking. Chris55 (talk) 20:25, 23 August 2014 (UTC)

List of countries by traffic-related death rate[edit]

Hi Chris55, it seems that your very nice picture

Road traffic accidents world map

has some errors. Iran and Venezuela are shown as countries with the highest road traffic accidents. But, Venezuela is not present in the data - it should be denoted like grey = "no data". Iran has value 32, but Libya has much higher 73, Thailand 36 etc.

Please, could you correct the picture? Thank you in advance. :) Tachto (talk) 18:44, 8 August 2017 (UTC)

Hi Tachto, I don't agree with your comments. Do note that the map reflects all age death figures per 100,000 inhabitants, not the raw totals which are in the WHO spreadsheet cited. The RTAs are at line GHE Code 153 (line 148) and populations are at line 10.
  1. Venezuala shows 12,100 road deaths, pop 29,955,000 = 40.39 per 100,000.
  2. Iran has 32,000 pop 76,424,000 = 41.87
  3. Libya has 2,000 pop 6,155,000 = 32.49
  4. Thailand has 24,900 pop 66,785,000 = 37.28
I agree the comparisons are surprising and western figures seem to represent the effects of road safety campaigns.
