Nuvola apps important yellow.svg Hello! I noticed that you tried to create a Wikipedia article on Commons. Please note that Commons is not Wikipedia, and does not host encyclopedia content - Commons only hosts media (photographs, videos, etc).

Hi Magog the Ogre. I created the table as a visual aid for a WP article on which I am working. The table is to summarize several paragraphs of text in a visual format. Go Phightins! (talk) 22:27, 13 February 2014 (UTC)

Hello. Actually you should be able to do that with tables. See w:Help:Table. If you want help with it, they're pretty good about that kind of thing at the Wikipedia help desk (w:WP:HD). Magog the Ogre (talk) (contribs) 01:17, 14 February 2014 (UTC)

Warning sign
This media may be deleted.
A file that you have uploaded to Wikimedia Commons, File:John Mayberry, Jr. steals second base; JJ Hardy seeks to catch the throw.JPG, is missing information about where it comes from or who created it, which is needed to verify its copyright status. Please edit the file description and add the missing information, or the file may be deleted.

If you created the content yourself, enter {{own}} as the source. If you did not add a licensing template, you must add one. You may use, for example, {{self|GFDL|cc-by-sa-all}} or {{Cc-zero}} to release certain rights to your work.

If someone else created the content, or if it is based on someone else's work, the source should be the address to the web page where you found it, the name and ISBN of the book you scanned it from, or similar. You should also name the author, provide verifiable information to show that the content is in the public domain or has been published under a free license by its author, and add an appropriate template identifying the public domain or licensing status, if you have not already done so.

Please add the required information for this and other files you have uploaded before adding more files. If you need assistance, please ask at the help desk. Thank you!

Hi Go Phightins! the above message was left for you, as far as I can tell, because you cropped the photo before uploading it. In the future, when uploading freely licensed material from Flickr, it would be great if you could upload the original (in the highest resolution available), and if you need a crop then upload the crop separately, linking the two files with {{image extracted}} and {{cropped}}. I did this with your file already, and you should be able to safely ignore the above warning from Denniss. Best regards, Storkk (talk) 12:17, 4 April 2014 (UTC)
OK. Thank you. That would make sense, and I will try to remember to follow that procedure with any future uploads. Thanks again, Go Phightins! (talk) 19:20, 4 April 2014 (UTC)
