Please categorise images correctly[edit]

I stumbled upon File:Escape from Melbourne by mugley.jpg which you had uploaded. The image was categorised in only the most general categories such as Category:Water, Category:Skylines and Category:Clouds. I have changed all categories in to correct - more specific - categories such as Category:Clouds in Australia, Category:Skylines of Melbourne and Category:Bays of Australia. Please try to find the most specific possible categories for your uploads in future.

Tip: Categorizing images[edit]

Hello, HappyWaldo!

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").

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.

Commons Galleries[edit]

Although policy does not absolutely require it, as a general rule, Commons galleries are useful only when the subject has many images in its category and we want to select a few representative images to show in one place. Policy does require that a gallery have more than one image.

Thus most of the galleries you have created recently are either explicit violations of policy or are outside of our usual practice.

You will find that there are half a dozen Admins who do New Page Patrol. Since 90% of all new gallery pages are out of scope -- usually vandalism, advertising, or articles with no images -- you will find that we are fairly quick to delete pages that are out of scope, including several of yours.

If you want to create new galleries, I suggest that you do it in a sandbox page in your own User space, such as User:HappyWaldo/Sandbox1 and then when the gallery is ready, including more than one image, copy it to the main gallery space. This will avoid it being deleted while you are in the process of populating it.

If you have any questions, you can leave a note here for the next week or so, or, anytime at my talk page. And thank you for your contributions to Commons.      Jim . . . . Jameslwoodward (talk to me) 13:23, 19 March 2011 (UTC)

Sorry, I should've investigated this beforehand. I did plan on developing some of the galleries into actual galleries, loosely modelled on Monet, Van Gogh, etc. But from now on I will avoid starting gallery pages unless it's absolutely recquired and could be helpful to users. - HappyWaldo (talk) 14:23, 19 March 2011 (UTC)
Good -- while I don't want to discourage you from creating useful galleries, there are so many different things that Commons needs, that creating galleries that are very similar to their categories is not a high priority.      Jim . . . . Jameslwoodward (talk to me) 14:31, 19 March 2011 (UTC)

There seems to be a problem regarding the description and/or licensing of this particular file. It has been found that you've added in the image's description only a Template that's not a license and although it provides useful information about the image, it's not a valid license. Could you please resolve this problem, adding the license in the image linked above? You can edit the description page and change the text. Uploading a new version of the file does not change the description of the file. This page may give you more hints on which license to choose. Thank you.

Warning sign
This media may be deleted.
A file that you have uploaded to Wikimedia Commons, File:Treasury Casino Brisbane.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!

year in Aust categories[edit]

Please dont remove year in Australia, or its subcategories from photographs as its a requirement of Wikimedia Australia that photographers who apply for assistance categorise their uploads in these categories. Gnangarra 05:21, 19 February 2013 (UTC)

Sorry. But why are you adding parent categories (Buildings in Fremantle) to images of buildings that already have their own categories, eg the Round House? It's messy. - HappyWaldo (talk) 19:41, 26 February 2013 (UTC)

Autopatrol given[edit]

Hello. I just wanted to let you know that I have granted autopatrol rights to your account; the reason for this is that I believe you are sufficiently trustworthy and experienced to have your contributions automatically sighted. This will have no effect on your editing, and is simply intended to help users watching Recent changes or Recent uploads to find unproductive edits amidst the productive ones. Thank you.
