Hello, BeenAroundAWhile!
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.

There seems to be a problem regarding the description and/or licensing of this particular file. It has been found that you've added in the image's description only a Template that's not a license and although it provides useful information about the image, it's not a valid license. Could you please resolve this problem, adding the license in the image linked above? You can edit the description page and change the text. Uploading a new version of the file does not change the description of the file. This page may give you more hints on which license to choose. Thank you.

Notice of copyright infringement[edit]

Hi there! You've been a very naughty boy and have been very sloppy with specifying licenses. You've set entirely wrong license and wrong license versions. This is copyright infringement which carries potentially massive penalties! You should be glad I'm not a vengeful copyright holder. Next time you upload something, make sure you get the license right. It's of paramount importance here on Wikimedia Commons. Palosirkka (talk) 07:30, 19 May 2013 (UTC)

Well, that is just silly and one reason I shall not be uploading any more files to Commons. yours, GeorgeLouis (talk) 07:34, 19 May 2013 (UTC)
I would not get upset by someone who does not really know how to politely tell someone they made a small error and that they corrected it for them. I think this post was just an editor trying to make the point in a silly way that did not work. I would suggest this was biting. Just ignore it and go forward.

I appreciate your message, but I really find that it is difficult to work with Commons. Uploading to the English Wikipedia is just so much simpler. And since I do a LOT of uploading, I find it easier to put my photos there and let others take time to send them to Commons if so warranted. Sorry, but that's just the way I feel. Sincerely, your friend, GeorgeLouis (talk) 19:50, 8 October 2013 (UTC)
I don't know what problems you are having with commons uploading but that is your choice. However it often takes quite a long time for images to be moved here, so maybe I will have an occasional look at you enwiki uploads. Good luck. Ww2censor (talk) 14:59, 10 October 2013 (UTC)
