Spheroidal weathering not lava bombs. Thanks for your oppiniion. I'm not an specialist on this subject so I accept you are right. The problem is that I don't know how to change the title of the resource. Do you know how to do it? Thanks, and sorry for my mistake. Carlets (talk) 12:55, 31 May 2010 (UTC)
Adding categories to my images
Hi GeoWriter, thanks for all that work on improving and adding categories to my uploaded images. I tend to only come here to upload images that I'm already planning to use or to search for ones to use, mostly I forget about the older ones that I've uploaded.

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"). Pro-tip: The CommonSense tool can help you find the best category for your image.

Hello. I just wanted to let you know that I have granted autopatrol rights to your account; the reason for this is that I believe you are sufficiently trustworthy and experienced to have your contributions automatically sighted. This will have no effect on your editing, and is simply intended to help users watching Recent changes or Recent uploads to find unproductive edits amidst the productive ones. Thank you.

Thanks and personality rights tag
Geowriter, Thanks for adding categories to several of my images, I really appreciate the help. I also appreciate your correct addittion of a personailty rights tag to several photos. I am in the process of uploading new versions with faces that are sufficiently blurred so that the person is unrecognizeable. Although the images were taken in a public place, better safe than sorry! I am going to remove the tags as the new versions are uploaded and the old versions get deleted. Thanks again! Michael C. Rygel 01:45, 12 April 2013 (UTC)
Hi, I noticed that you added category "Columnar basalts" to photos of Mount Wellington in Tasmania. The rock here however is not basalt, even though it has columnar jointing. The rock is dolerite, or diabase in American English. perhaps you can make a new category for columnar dolerite. Graeme Bartlett (talk) 10:58, 3 July 2013 (UTC)
- Thanks for pointing out that Mt Wellington columnar rocks are dolerite. I have created a new category "Columnar dolerites" and I've moved the Mt. Wellington photos to that category. I hope I haven't missed any. When I originally copied the Mt Wellington photos to the "Columnar basalts" category, I had also added a description to that category attempting to widen the scope to include dolerite. Now I think a separate category is preferable. I have also created categories for "Columnar andesites" and "Columnar rhyolites"", and I've put all the columnar igneous rocks into a new higher-level category "Columnar igneous rocks".

- In other languages: Deutsch, Ελληνικά, English, français, magyar, italiano, македонски, 日本語, русский, svenska
Wikimedia Commons is happy to announce that the second round of the 2013 Picture of the Year competition is now open. This year will be the eighth edition of the annual Wikimedia Commons photo competition, which recognizes exceptional contributions by users on Wikimedia Commons. Wikimedia users are invited to vote for their favorite images featured on Commons during the last year (2013) to produce a single Picture of the Year.
Hundreds of images that have been rated Featured Pictures by the international Wikimedia Commons community in the past year were entered in this competition. These images include professional animal and plant shots, breathtaking panoramas and skylines, restorations of historical images, photographs portraying the world's best architecture, impressive human portraits, and so much more.
There are two total rounds of voting. In the first round, you voted for as many images as you liked. The top 30 overall and the most popular image in each category have continued to the final. In the final round, you may vote for just one image to become the Picture of the Year.
Round 2 will end on .
