Image:M209 guide arm springs.png and other images from the Wikipedia[edit]

Hi - thanks for contributing to the commons! Wehn copying images from a wikipedia, please note the following:

  • always upload the full resolution version of the image! Klick on the image in the article to go to the description page. Check if there's a link to a "full resolution image" below the image you see there.
  • Tag the image in the Wikipedia with {{NowCommons|name of the image}}
  • Link to the user page of the creator. In the case of Image:M209 guide arm springs.png, use en:User:Wapcaplet (not the leading ":" in the source of the link).
  • Categorize the image on the commons, so it can be found and used by others. In this case, the images should go to Category:Cryptography.
  • Use {{GFDL}}, not {{GFDL-en}} (not sure what that is for anyway)
  • Make sure you copy all info given in the Wikipedia, including the uploader if different from the creator.

I have fixed Image:M209 guide arm springs.png for you. Please fix the other images, too. Thanks! -- Duesentrieb(?!) 13:17, 3 September 2005 (UTC)

Hello, Feylamia!

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.

Please help replace this outdated license[edit]


Thank you for donating images to the Wikimedia Commons. You have uploaded some images in the past with the license {{PD}}. While this was a license acceptable in the early days of Wikimedia, since January 2006, this license has been deprecated and since October 2008 no new uploads with this license was allowed.

The license on older images should be replaced with a better and more specific license/permissions and you can help by checking the images and adding {{PD-self}} if you are the author or one of the other templates that you can see in the template on the image page.

Thank you for your help. If you need help feel free to ask at Commons talk:Licensing or contact User:Zscout370.

The images we would like you to check are:
