Hello, Jakob.scholbach!

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.

Categorization of audio files[edit]

Hello! Please take care to categorize your audio files correctly. Some time ago I already told somebody else about this problem. There you can read what to do. Best regards, Hedwig von Ebbel (talk) 22:55, 30 December 2009 (UTC)

Thanks for the tip. I did not realize that the files would not be sorted properly when simply adding them to Category:German pronunciation. I'm about to provide many thousands of sound files for german Wiktionary, and I'm currently using the commonist tool to upload the files. As it is, it will be impossible to type [[:Category:German pronunciation|...]] each single time by hand. Is it possible to have some bot do this (for me)? Or is there any other way to conveniently upload many files with the precise category? Jakob.scholbach (talk) 23:27, 30 December 2009 (UTC)
Yes, doing this by hand is a really annoying job (I know what I'm talking about. I've already done that with quite a lot of files.) and unfortunately even {{subst:PAGENAME}} won't work because of the "De-" at the beginning of each file's name. This might be a job for a bot, but concerning bots I'm not an expert at all. Maybe somebody mentioned on that page can help you. Hedwig von Ebbel (talk) 12:45, 4 January 2010 (UTC).

File descriptions[edit]

See partial tidy up for placement of image description. Note AWB keyword %%pagename%% to write directly to file, which I only recently found out about. There was a typo and I should have said {{subst:PAGENAME}} and not {{subst:FILENAME}}, which writes to the page only after saving the page. Snowmanradio (talk) 20:41, 11 January 2010 (UTC)

Template[edit]

Re: Template:Aussprache. It appears as {{Aussprache|Bälle|migration=relicense}}. Is this a German language template? I guess that the "Bälle" (or words in a similar position) need indexing too, because it indexes the category. Snowmanradio (talk) 14:04, 12 January 2010 (UTC)

Looks like a German language template. But I think the way we had previously is just as good. Jakob.scholbach (talk) 19:32, 12 January 2010 (UTC)

This media may be deleted.
A file that you have uploaded to Wikimedia Commons, File:MahlerSecondSymMov4ViolClar.png, 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!

Recorded with a Zoom H2 Handy Recorder[edit]

Hello Jakob.scholbach. I have created a new category for audio files which were recorded with a Zoom H2. I have already categorised a few of your files. You can categorise your current uploads and all you future uploads in this category. The categoriy is Recorded with Zoom H2 Digital Recorder. --D-Kuru (talk) 13:17, 1 January 2012 (UTC)

Picture of the Year 2013 R1 Announcement[edit]

Round 1 of Picture of the Year 2013 is open![edit]

2012 Picture of the Year: A pair of European Bee-eaters in Ariège, France.

Dear Wikimedians,

Wikimedia Commons is happy to announce that the 2013 Picture of the Year competition is now open. This year will be the eighth edition of the annual Wikimedia Commons photo competition, which recognizes exceptional contributions by users on Wikimedia Commons. Wikimedia users are invited to vote for their favorite images featured on Commons during the last year (2013) to produce a single Picture of the Year.

Hundreds of images that have been rated Featured Pictures by the international Wikimedia Commons community in the past year are all entered in this competition. These images include professional animal and plant shots, breathtaking panoramas and skylines, restorations of historical images, photographs portraying the world's best architecture, impressive human portraits, and so much more.

For your convenience, we have sorted the images into topical categories. Two rounds of voting will be held: In the first round, you may vote for as many images as you like. The top 30 overall and the most popular image in each category will continue to the final. In the final round, you may vote for just one image to become the Picture of the Year.

Round 1 will end on . Click here to learn more and vote »

Thanks,
the Wikimedia Commons Picture of the Year committee
