Hello, Green Cardamom!

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:

Uploadwizard-categories.png

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]]
[[Category:Comets]]

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.

David X. Li entry[edit]

Hi Green Cardamom,

I read your revision of David X. Li's wiki page and noticed you cite WIRED magazine for a large portion of your entry's content. It's obvious that you read the article, but I'm curious as to whether you are a subscriber or just happened to pick up the issue at a newsstand? If you are a subscriber, how long have you been subscribing to WIRED? Also, if you don't mind me asking, what do you do for a living? I'm curious because I'm a loyal WIRED reader and I also work for for the magazine. I appreciate your response and would love to hear your thoughts.

Thanks, Green Cardamom!

Swans[edit]

Trumpeter Swans (Cygnus buccinator) in WWT London Wetland Centre

Not sure if those are what you are searching for, but there are some swans in Category:WWT London Wetland Centre. -- Common Good (talk) 19:36, 12 November 2011 (UTC)

Mai Lai[edit]

I just happened to see this Commons:Deletion requests/File:My Lai massacre.jpg -- I agree with you 100%, your totally correct. I don't understand the Keep's in that thread, they seemed to be engaged in wishful thinking and ignoring the evidence. Green Cardamom (talk) 17:01, 15 November 2011 (UTC)

File:Hemline (skirt height) overview chart 1805-2005.svg[edit]

It's based on my work building up parts of Pemberley.com during the late 1990s, but it's eyeballed (not precisely quantitative), as explained on the chart's page. The main inflection points (hemlines dropping to floor-length about 1835, rising significantly above ankle-length for the first time during WW1, reaching almost knee length in 1927, and the transition to a new fashion regime after the failure to impose the "midi" in the early 1970s) are all solidly based on facts (but spread across many fashion plates, photographs, and so on; thus not in the form of one conveniently citable source). You can look at Category:19th-century fashion and related. If you want exact measurements and statistics, you can look at research on the "hemline index" (though likely confined to the twentieth century only). Churchh (talk) 10:57, 27 January 2012 (UTC)

For the nineteenth century, see File:1794-1887-Fashion-overview-Alfred-Roller.GIF Churchh (talk) 11:29, 27 January 2012 (UTC)
P.S. It was originally used (in slightly different form) on the Pemberley.com website (see page http://www.pemberley.com/janeinfo/fashcycl.html ). Churchh (talk) 03:56, 22 July 2012 (UTC)

Possible Book "Deckle"[edit]

a hard cover book with what is possibly a 'deckled edge'?

If this qualifies as a "deckle" I can get you a better shot, with specific focus, as I have this book at home. Let me know on my talk page if you're interested Bennett000 (talk) 02:38, 23 May 2013 (UTC)
