Hello, Glrx!

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.

Getting SVG valid[edit]

I wouldn't worry too much about making sure the SVG is valid. As long as it renders OK. The validator isn't smart enough to ignore stuff inside of the meta block. It also might have problems with how 'switch' blocks work.

Are you hand editing File:Ebola Outbreak 2014.svg or do you use some kind of program to generate it? Just curious. --Aflafla1 (talk) 02:55, 6 August 2014 (UTC)

One thing though - your svg file probably uses UTF-16 encoding. It's not UTF-8 in any case. (This appears in first line of the svg file) --Aflafla1 (talk) 02:59, 6 August 2014 (UTC)

The validator found some legit errors: the attribute is viewBox (not viewbox); title and desc apparently may not have conditional attributes. The metadata block seems hopeless, but I had thought it was finding some RDF. The bad part is its: is not recognized.
I'm hand editing the file. I was going to use a program to output the data, but I settled on a simple enough transform (2 pixels per day, 0.1 pixels per case) that hand editing works. When I started adding translated short day names, then I wished I was using a program (it could generate short month names by changing locale).
The file is UTF-8, but it starts with a BOM to tell the editor it is UTF-8 rather than ASCII.
The bottom line: it is a crazy way to generate a diagram. It does educate me a bit more on localization/internationalization. Glrx (talk) 03:23, 6 August 2014 (UTC)
PS. Log() is the way to go if the numbers go much higher. Glrx (talk) 03:30, 6 August 2014 (UTC)

Ebola translation to galician[edit]

Don't worry, I have fixed it :) Bye, --Elisardojm (talk) 17:09, 6 August 2014 (UTC)

The only fix is that for month "May" you have to add "Mai" for galician language (gl). Thanks!, --Elisardojm (talk) 17:48, 6 August 2014 (UTC)
I think that the file is ok, if I notice any problem I'll notify to you :) Thanks! --Elisardojm (talk) 17:58, 6 August 2014 (UTC)
I find a little typo in galician translation, month August, "Aug", is "Ago" in galician (gl). Bye, --Elisardojm (talk) 22:49, 6 August 2014 (UTC)
Don't worry :) I have found now another typo in galician translation...O:) Month September is "Set". Bye, --Elisardojm (talk) 12:36, 7 August 2014 (UTC)
Fixed. Glrx (talk) 15:42, 7 August 2014 (UTC)
