Warning sign
This media may be deleted.

Thanks for uploading Image:Francis of Assisi.jpg. I notice the image page currently doesn't specify who created the content, so the copyright status is unclear. If you have not created this media yourself then you need to argue that we have the right to use the media on Wikimedia Commons (see copyright tagging below). If you have not created the media yourself then you should also specify where you found it, i.e., in most cases link to the website where you got it, and the terms of use for content from that page. If the content is a derivative of a copyrighted work, you need to supply the names and a licence of the original authors as well.

If the media also doesn't have a copyright tag, then you must also add one. If you created/took the picture, audio, or video then you can use {{self|cc-by-sa-3.0}} to release it under the Creative Commons Attribution-ShareAlike license or {{PD-self}} to release it into the public domain. See Commons:Copyright tags for the full list of copyright tags that you can use.

Note that any unsourced and untagged images will be deleted one week after they have been uploaded, as described on criteria for speedy deletion. If you have uploaded other media, please check that you have specified their source and copyright tagged them, too. You can find all your uploads using the Gallery tool. Thank you.

Your Flickr uploads[edit]

Hello Droll!

Thanks a lot for your contributions! Thank you for transferring images from Flickr to Commons! Two hints ahead:

  • Always upload the highest resolution of a photograph that is available on flickr
  • You can use this tool for your flickr uploads. It makes the hole procedure much easier and faster for you!

Thank you for your support! Greets, High Contrast (talk) 07:33, 21 December 2009 (UTC)


As there was a previous discussion on its name (see talk), would you use {{move}} or start a new discussion? -- User:Docu at 08:33, 30 January 2010 (UTC)

Thanks for your interest. I was unaware that there had been a discussion. Where was the topic being discussed? I looked at Category talk:Sierra Nevada, North America but it is empty except for archive template that is also empty.
I changed the the category name because Category:Sierra Nevada, North America is inappropriate IMHO. There is a Trans-Mexican Volcanic Belt which is also in North America (see Category:Sierra Nevada). This implies that Sierra Nevada, North America is an ambiguous name in my opinion since Mexico is a part of North America.
When I started trying to straiten this out many images where in Category:Sierra Nevada which is even more ambiguous (again see Category:Sierra Nevada). Remember Commons is an international site and it would be simplistic to think that "Sierra Nevada" should always refer to the range in the United States.
I believe I did the right thing as it conforms with Category:Sierra Nevada (Spain) which has existed since September 2005. If we follow the format Category:Sierra Nevada, North America then the category for the Spanish mountains should be Category:Sierra Nevada, Europe. If you have more specific guidance please share it with me.
If you do not object, Docu, I would like to copy this discussion to Category talk:Sierra Nevada (USA) Droll (talk) 09:30, 30 January 2010 (UTC)
Have a look at "Categories for discussion" linked on the talk page (I don't object). -- User:Docu at 09:27, 30 January 2010 (UTC)
Discussion moved to Category talk:Sierra Nevada (USA). Droll (talk) 09:40, 30 January 2010 (UTC)

Hello, Droll!

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.
