Question on one of your pictures[edit]

Hi I had a question on the picture you uploaded, the one with the German soldiers in front of the Arc de Triomphe in Paris: most of them look very old. Could you give me any information on their ages, on why they were in the army or whatever you wish to tell me? I'm a newbe writer and interested in history and the age of soldiers in WW2 is a big question of mine....thank you!

I'm sorry, but unfortunately I don't know their ages. Kind Regards, John N. (@ me) 14:27, 19 August 2009 (UTC)

Ok. -- John N. (@ me) 20:24, 29 November 2005 (UTC)

No probs - thanks for uploading all these excellent images! The World War II main "parent" cat was a mess, as there were/are many images that simply had no where to go. Hopefully resolved now. My tip - just copy the cats into notepad (or whatever) and copy and paste them :-) Take care. SoLando (Talk) 19:17, 15 December 2005 (UTC)

Tip: Categorizing images[edit]

Hello, John N.!
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.

Please help replace this outdated license[edit]

Hello!

Thank you for donating images to the Wikimedia Commons. You have uploaded some images in the past with the license {{PD}}. While this was a license acceptable in the early days of Wikimedia, since January 2006, this license has been deprecated and since October 2008 no new uploads with this license was allowed.

The license on older images should be replaced with a better and more specific license/permissions and you can help by checking the images and adding {{PD-self}} if you are the author or one of the other templates that you can see in the template on the image page.

Thank you for your help. If you need help feel free to ask at Commons talk:Licensing or contact User:Zscout370.

The images we would like you to check are:
