Hmmmmm... C'est la bonne page hein ? Il me semble que ce n'est pas possible de fusionner deux compte. En tous cas un admin ne peut pas faire cela. Tu devrais contacter un bureaucrate pour qu'il te précise tout ça, sinon je peux fouiller pour en trouver un ?
Tip: Categorizing 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.
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]]
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! I added more info to this map: File:Dacie Burebista -60-44.png and also copied the Italian version. Great map. Thanks for the effort. The map is very popular. I posted a few questions here and here. And you are welcomed to join WikiProject Dacia or maybe start a french version? ;-) Thanks and best regards. --Codrin.B (talk) 21:53, 11 December 2011 (UTC)
- Hi ColdEel, regarding the map [] it seems we are both original creators, as I used your blank map to put in all the rest. I think this should be specified in the description of the file. Btw. my work was in German, and there you are still mentioned as the template creator. Regarding the Italian translation, I presume you did that, otherwise there must be a third creator to be credited.--Borsanova (talk) 15:24, 11 November 2014 (UTC)
