If the content is a derivative of a copyrighted work, you need to supply the names and a licence of the original authors as well.

If the media also doesn't have a copyright tag, then you must also add one. If you created/took the picture, audio, or video then you can use {{self|GFDL|cc-by-sa-all}} to release it under the multilicense GFDL plus Creative Commons Attribution-ShareAlike All-version license or {{PD-self}} to release it into the public domain.

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 informations 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.

Don't want to be hypercritical, but the flag of Portugal is anachronistic. Correct would apparently be File:Flag Portugal (1707).svg... AnonMoos (talk) 01:11, 27 April 2011 (UTC)

Thank you very much for that, I didn't even check that out. I will try and fix the flag and upload a new picture soon. Again, thank you. Jakednb (talk) 13:11, 27 April 2011 (UTC)

Tip: Categorizing images[edit]

Hello, Jakednb!

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.

Syrian Military Flags[edit]

Thanks a lot for the barnstar! Although it look's like I was off with the writing though (apparently the writing is the branch's motto, rather than just the branch's name); sigh, back to work I suppose! You haven't happened to find any other videos or photos giving a clearer look at the writing/flags have you? MrPenguin20 (talk) 23:30, 11 September 2013 (UTC)

I seems extremely hard to find. Syrian soldiers don't even have patches on their uniforms, so I can't even find unit symbols. I keep searching in hope to find something. Anyway, for now I have only found the Special Forces patch (a tiger's head) and there is also a SF badge (a skull and cross bones).Jakednb (talk) 15:47, 12 September 2013 (UTC)
Those sound pretty interesting, where about did you find them? MrPenguin20 (talk) 22:30, 12 September 2013 (UTC)
I have done the 'tiger' SF badge, it's in my user page. Also I have made an interesting connection while searching the web, the 'skull and cross bones' badge, seems to belong to soldiers of the 'Republican Guard'. You can find the badge here [1], and here is a youtube video of a Republican guard soldier wearing it [2], I have not found any special forces soldiers with it, so I assume it belongs only to the guard.
If you are able to create an SVG image of the badge, it would be great for the Republican Guard page. I can not really create it in PNG.
That's fantastic; I've been trying to find the Republican Guard badge for a while. I'll get right on it. MrPenguin20 (talk) 20:02, 14 September 2013 (UTC)
There is however a problem I have found, this badge was also used by the "Defense Companies" during the 70's, this I have found in an Osprey book showing Syrian uniforms. It is possible that the Republican Guards inherited the badge when the companies were dissolved in the 80's. The other option is that it is a general SF badge, However, I have not yet seen it used by SF troops, so I guess we will have to go with the first option. Good luck, I will be happy to see the end result. Jakednb (talk) 20:36, 14 September 2013 (UTC)

I've found another Division SSI; you can see it here and here (at 1:01). Any idea what unit it might be for? I'm wondering if it's perhaps some kind of Media relations unit? (as he's a military reporter) MrPenguin20 (talk) 22:17, 20 September 2013 (UTC)

Good find, after a search of my own, I believe this is probably his rank (see here). The patch above (green square with crossed swords) is either the infantry patch or the General Staff patch, I've seen it on many officers. Jakednb (talk) 09:17, 21 September 2013 (UTC)
Yeah that makes sense. Thanks! MrPenguin20 (talk) 02:06, 23 September 2013 (UTC)

Great work on finding those Syrian military patches! It might take me a little while to identify them, but in the meantime I can tell you that the patch with Commandos written underneath it says "Special Forces", whilst the patch on the man with the Jesus tattoo says "National Defense" - probably a member of the National Defense Force. MrPenguin20 (talk) 17:36, 28 September 2013 (UTC)

Btw you don't still happen to have the link to the LiveLeak video do you? MrPenguin20 (talk) 21:30, 30 September 2013 (UTC)
