Tip: Categorizing images[edit]

Hello, Islahaddow!
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.

Autopatrol given[edit]

Commons Autopatrolled.svg

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 marked as "reviewed". This has no effect on your editing, it is simply intended to make it easier for users that are monitoring Recent changes or Recent uploads to find unproductive edits amidst the productive ones like yours. In addition, the Flickr upload feature and an increased number of batch-uploads in UploadWizard, uploading of freely licensed MP3 files and an increased limit for page renames per minute are now available to you. Thank you. odder (talk) 14:56, 28 August 2012 (UTC)

File:Aids 40.jpg and more[edit]

Hi Islahaddow, such uploads (work of different person than uploader) require a permission to OTRS. If this is already in preparation, you should add {{OTRS pending}} to each upload. Otherwise you risk deletion. --Túrelio (talk) 12:14, 19 June 2013 (UTC)

Let's make Commons Conference a reality[edit]

Hello Isla,

I'm writing you as one of the Wiki Loves Africa organizers. Since a while now, the idea of a dedicated Commons conference has been floating around. But since the last Wikimania concrete steps have been taken to actually make it happen next year. If you're interested in participation or maybe willing to help organize the first ever Commons Conference, I invite you to check out the project page and add your ideas; or just show your support for the idea, by signing up.

Cheers,

Hey Isla. Just dropping a note on this image. It's really important that when we make works based on other works hosted on Commons, that we attribute where the original was. I've gone ahead and added this information to this file and removed the deletion nomination. If I can be of any help feel free to stop by my talk page. GMGtalk 16:33, 2 March 2020 (UTC)

GMG, thank you for rescuing this from deletion! I am not sure how it is a copyright violation if I got the image directly from Commons? I also made sure that the credit was on the image itself, just unfortunately not on the description. Thank you for taking action. I will make sure in future that it is in both the image and the description. Islahaddow (talk) 06:09, 3 March 2020 (UTC)
Well, the problem was that someone else also took it from Commons and they didn't attribute the original when they used it on their website. So it make it look as if you may have taken it from the website. GMGtalk 10:37, 3 March 2020 (UTC)

Study shows Wiki Love Africa recruitment makes a difference[edit]

Hello Islahaddow

Wiki-Loves-Africa-logo.png

We are writing because you have participated in the Wiki Loves Africa (WLA) photo competition in the past. Results have been published and winning pictures may be seen here !

This year WLA partnered with the research organization CAT Lab (previously CivilServant) to help us evaluate the effectiveness of one of our recruitment efforts. You may or may not have received a message on your user talk page encouraging you to participate again in this year's competition.

We are excited to share with you their study found our recruitment message was a success and may have resulted in as many as 2,000 additional contributed photos. We hope you agree this is great news for Africa and its representation across Wikimedia. You can read more about the study and the results in this blog post.

If you have any questions about the study, we encourage you to ask CAT Lab's research manager Juliakamin(cs).
