Hello, Dchmelik!
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.

Category:Flower of Life SVGs[edit]

I have several, so you should specify which one. Some were uploaded before xmlns="" headers became mandatory on Commons, and Firefox doesn't like SVG files without xmlns="" headers, but I don't see that any of them aren't displaying on Commons, or that any of them couldn't be used in a Wikipedia article...

Yes, the main purpose of SVG files on Wikimedia Commons is to be rendered into PNG views, and if a SVG successfully becomes a PNG, then that's how a SVG is defined as "working" for the purposes of Commons. You still haven't specified any filename, so I don't know which file you're referring to, but you can change <svg to <svg xmlns="" and it will probably work in Firefox...
