Rhinopias -- weedy vs. paddleflap
Hi Jnpet, I think your image Rhinopias frondosa.JPG is actually a Rhinopias eschmeyeri, sometimes called the Paddle-flap Scorpionfish. See, e.g., Allen, et al., Reef Fish Identification: Tropical Pacific (2003, 2005), p. 373. Shall I change it? (I'm new here, so I apologize if this is not the best way to propose a change.) --Jason Marks (talk) 02:01, 8 January 2012 (UTC)
- Hi Jason, I've heard similar things, but my understanding is that Rhinopias eschmeyeri may not actually be a separate species. See Wikipedia:Weedy scorpionfish article on Wikipedia. It is mentioned there. Cheers! Jnpet (talk) 11:00, 8 January 2012 (UTC)
Tip: Categorizing images
Hello, Jason Marks!
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.
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:
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]]
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.
