Hello, Gerda Arendt!

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.

Thank you[edit]

Hi Gerda,

I'd like to thank you for your kindness! It is said that a true friend is only seen in time of need, and you proved yourself to be a true friend!

Anyway I came here to share with you this article, which mentions me a few times. It is in German, and I hope you'd be interested in reading it not because it mentions me of course, but because the topic of it is interesting IMO. Best wishes.--Mbz1 (talk) 21:03, 24 April 2012 (UTC)

Thanks for sharing! Stunning! - If you look at my WP talk/user you see that things worked nice for one of my friends but not (yet) for the other. But the one was already considered "impossible" as you may know, so I keep hoping and don't forget you, --Gerda Arendt (talk) 12:41, 25 April 2012 (UTC)
