Hello, Deltawk!

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"). 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.

File:Amador Valley We the People.jpg[edit]

Hello, the image is now under speedy nomination as it is still licensed on Flickr as non-commercial. I am trying to hold off deletion for a little bit but I would suggest trying to get it re-licensed as soon as possible. Camaron · Christopher · talk 08:24, 1 July 2009 (UTC)

Unfortunately despite my comments an admin has deleted the image anyway, I have a feeling they did not notice my comments as they forgot to delete the talk page. If you can get this image re-licensed I will be able to ask the admin for it to be restored. I cannot restore it myself as while I am an admin on the English Wikipedia, I am not one on this project yet. Camaron · Christopher · talk 11:19, 1 July 2009 (UTC)
To speed things up I have sent Woojoo on Flickr a direct private message as I have an account, we will have to see how he responds. Camaron · Christopher · talk 18:58, 1 July 2009 (UTC)
Thank you Camaron for your help with the issue and your continual attention to the issue. I've also sent woojoo a facebook message to nudge him to change the permissions. Sorry for all the issues with me uploading an image before the permission were perfect. I appreciate your help with the commons picture and the wikipedia article.

You're welcome, by the looks of it Woojoo is not active on Flickr at the moment (looking at his uploads), hopefully he will return some time soon, or he will get your Facebook message Camaron · Christopher · talk 10:50, 2 July 2009 (UTC)
Hi Camaron, Woojoo updated the license picture this morning (in california time). May you ask an admin to have the photo restored? Thank you for your help Deltawk (talk) 17:06, 3 July 2009 (UTC)
I've left a message on Lycaon's talk page to request this image be restored. Deltawk (talk) 18:25, 5 July 2009 (UTC)
Well done on getting the licence changed, I see it has been restored. However Woojoo re-licensed it to less restrictive CC BY, and not CC BY-SA, I have corrected this on the image page. Camaron · Christopher · talk 17:35, 6 July 2009 (UTC)
