Hello, Inqvisitor!

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.

Data used to create election maps[edit]

Would you be willing to share the county-level data you used to create your election maps?

Source of Election Data[edit]

Hello Inqvisitor! It's nice to see someone else on here making election maps. :) I was wondering what you were using in terms of data sources (books, election webpages, etc.). As for myself, I've used "United States Presidential Elections, 1788-1860: The Official Results by County and State" by Michael J. Dubin, "Presidential Ballots, 1836-1892" by Walter Dean Burnham, "The Presidential Vote, 1896-1932" by Edgar Eugene, and "They Voted For Roosevelt" by Edgar Eugene.

Cheers! --Tilden76 (talk) 21:53, 9 March 2013 (UTC)

Alaska results on the Gary Johnson strength map[edit]

Hey Inqvisitor! I saw that you added county equivalent results for many 2016 presidential election maps. I was wondering if you could add those results for my Gary Johnson strength map using my color key, if you have the time.
