Hello Jimmarsmars!

Thank you for providing images to Wikimedia Commons. Please keep in mind that images uploaded to Commons should be useful to all users of Wikimedia projects. This is possible only if the images can be found by other people.

To allow others to find the images you uploaded here, the images should be in some place that can be found by navigating the category structure. This means that you should put the images into appropriate topic pages, categories, optionally galleries, or both of them (see Commons:Categories). To find good categories for your images, the CommonSense tool may help.

You can find a convenient overview of your uploaded files in this gallery.

The important point is that the images should be placed in the general structure somewhere. There are a large number of completely unsorted images on Commons right now. If you would like to help to place some of those images where they can be found, please do!

Thank you. BotMultichillT (talk) 06:02, 4 December 2008 (UTC)

I agree that images should have a category. I tried to add them a while back as I filled out the form, but my attempt caused me to lose the information I typed in and did not get the category added. I've just tried to add a category to the bottom of the page, but I can't seem to get it to work. I'm having trouble with the vocabulary in the directions. In the past, I added categories to articles, but adding categories to images seems to be different and far more complex. I would like to add more images of Mars when I find them, but I do not want to make a mess for someone else. 16:54, 10 November 2010 (UTC)

Categorization of Mars images[edit]

Hi! Category:Surface features of Mars is getting overpopulated. I tried tonight to move images to more specific categories. I almost succeeded in getting all the files on one page, so that also all subcategories get displayed. It would be helpful if you would also use subcategories. Regards, /Pieter Kuiper (talk) 21:59, 2 December 2009 (UTC)

That sounds like a good idea. How would I find the subcategories? I tried looking for them a day or so ago, and could not find them.````
Some are listed at the top of the first page of Category:Surface features of Mars, and there are more on the second page. And of course there are othe categories in the category:Mars-tree (not everything is logically ordered). You may also need to create new categories. Have fun! /Pieter Kuiper (talk) 22:50, 2 December 2009 (UTC)

Better source request for Image:Slide14.JPG[edit]

Thanks for uploading Image:Slide14.JPG. You provided a source, but it is difficult for other users to examine the copyright status of the image because the source is incomplete. Please consider clarifying the exact source so that the copyright status may be checked more easily. It is best to specify the exact web page where you found the image, rather than only giving the source domain or the URL of the image file itself. Please update the image description with a URL that will be more helpful to other users in determining the copyright status.

If you have uploaded other files, consider checking that you have specified their source in a complete manner. You can find a list of files you have uploaded by following this link. If you have any questions please ask them at the help desk or me at my talkpage. Thank you. Magog the Ogre (talk) 05:17, 26 February 2011 (UTC)

Adding categories[edit]

Before adding descriptive categories to images, such as "Labyrinthi on Mars", check to see if the image is already part of that category through a parent cat. For example, with File:28370noctis.jpg, that image is in the category "Noctis Labyrinthus" which is already part of the Labyrinthi category. There's no need for such double just clutters those higher level categories. Let me know if you have any questions. Huntster (t @ c) 03:39, 7 April 2015 (UTC)

Jim, why did you readd the "Impact craters on Mars" category with this edit? It is already part of that category through Category:Asimov crater and is redundant. Please be more careful. Huntster (t @ c) 16:33, 8 April 2015 (UTC)

Sorry, I'm just confused about the categories. I was trying to have as many as possible. 2601:1:9700:C51:480:4951:AD55:2327 18:56, 8 April 2015 (UTC)
Remember, categories are a means of navigation. If single images are in multiple categories in the same category tree, it makes navigation much more difficult. Always choose the category/categories that are the most detailed and focused for any particular category tree. Don't be afraid to ask questions if you're unsure of a particular best practice or how to do something. Huntster (t @ c) 01:54, 9 April 2015 (UTC)
