Hello, Gixie!

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.

Hello Gixie, why you are thinking, this (Nomen.jpg) is not a door? --Diwas (talk) 15:52, 2 January 2010 (UTC)

dear Diwas

The category is very crowded, and the File: Nomen.JPG is only written on the door but I can't see the door. i think the category: doors isn't the appropiate.

if it is a problem you can restore. for me no problem--gixie (talk) 16:24, 2 January 2010 (UTC)

how about creating a category, written on the doors--gixie (talk) 16:30, 2 January 2010 (UTC)

Category:Written doors is ready--gixie (talk) 17:43, 2 January 2010 (UTC)

  • "Written doors" makes little or no sense, I'll be moving this to "Doors with writing". - Jmabel ! talk 19:31, 2 January 2010 (UTC)
  • Only for the history category written doors is delete and category:doors with writing is ready--gixie (talk) 11:31, 17 January 2010 (UTC)


Should be fixed now. odder (talk) 01:47, 1 February 2010 (UTC)
