Hello, Joshb!

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.

Warning sign
This media may be deleted.
Thanks for uploading File:Male_Torso.JPG. I notice that the file page either doesn't contain enough information about the license or it contains contradictory information about the license, so the copyright status is unclear.

If you created this file yourself, then you must provide a valid copyright tag. For example, you can tag it with {{self|GFDL|cc-by-sa-all}} to release it under the multi-license GFDL plus Creative Commons Attribution-ShareAlike All-version license or you can tag it with {{PD-self}} to release it into the public domain. (See Commons:Copyright tags for the full list of license tags that you can use.)

If you did not create the file yourself or if it is a derivative of another work that is possibly subject to copyright protection, then you must specify where you found it (e.g. usually a link to the web page where you got it), you must provide proof that it has a license that is acceptable for Commons (e.g. usually a link to the terms of use for content from that page), and you must add an appropriate license tag. If you did not create the file yourself and the specific source and license information is not available on the web, you must obtain permission through the OTRS system and follow the procedure described there.

Note that any unsourced or improperly licensed files will be deleted one week after they have been marked as lacking proper information, as described in criteria for speedy deletion. If you have uploaded other files, please confirm that you have provided the proper information for those files, too. If you have any questions about licenses please ask at Commons:Village pump/Copyright or see our help pages. Thank you.

File:Male_Torso.JPG[edit]

Commons-emblem-issue.svg File:Male_Torso.JPG has been listed at Commons:Deletion requests so that the community can discuss whether it should be kept or not. We would appreciate it if you could go to voice your opinion about this at its entry.

If you created this file, please note that the fact that it has been proposed for deletion does not necessarily mean that we do not value your kind contribution. It simply means that one person believes that there is some specific problem with it, such as a copyright issue.
Please remember to respond to and – if appropriate – contradict the arguments supporting deletion. Arguments which focus on the nominator will not affect the result of the nomination. Thank you!

Deletion requests[edit]

Hello, i see that you have started a second deletion request before the previous one was closed. It's not really a good way to do that, the admin hasn't closed the request yet. Also it would really help if you would explain the situation a little bit, you are saying that you have uploaded without permission, but yet you have specified that you are the author when you have uploaded. Was your upload a mistake/lie or are you abusing the system now? Are there other concerns that you are raising? If you speak english as a second language and cannot answer well in this language, please answer in any language and we will try to translate it in hope that you get your message across as well as possible. Without any other information apart from "please delete" i hope that admins will have common sense to close the request and keep the image. VolodyA! V Anarhist (converse) 06:04, 9 January 2012 (UTC)

Hi, please respond. Anywhere. Here would be Ok. VolodyA! V Anarhist Beta_M (converse) 12:17, 10 January 2012 (UTC)

Hi. Can you please delete all of my photos? They were uploaded a while ago on this account without my permission, and I would like if they were deleted.


You uploaded photos of yourself without your permission? I see.... Unfortunately, all licences on Commons are irrevocable - once you release it, you can't come back and say "no, you can't have that anymore". Maybe within a few days, but three years later? No. -mattbuck (Talk) 04:06, 26 January 2012 (UTC)

Warning You have nominated File:Teen_boy's_Nipple.jpg for deletion three times without a reason acceptable to Commons. If you nominate it again, or take any similar action, you will be blocked from editing on Commons.      Jim . . . . Jameslwoodward (talk to me) 12:32, 28 January 2012 (UTC)

If you have questions, you may ask them at the Village Pump in any of 42 languages or on my talk page. I will also watch for questions here on your talk page for at least a week.      Jim . . . . Jameslwoodward (talk to me) 12:32, 28 January 2012 (UTC)

Can you please delete the two photos I nominated for deletion previously. I would like if they were removed from this site. Thanks

English: Hello, can you please state the reason why you want the images removed. If you simply say that you want to do that it's not helpful. VolodyA! V Anarhist Beta_M (converse) 06:03, 29 January 2012 (UTC)
Русский: Доброе время суток, пожалуйста, объясни почему тебе нужно удалить эти фотографии. Если ты просто говоришь что хочешь чтобы они были удалены, это не поможет. VolodyA! V Anarhist Beta_M (converse) 06:03, 29 January 2012 (UTC)

I just really do not want the pictures on this site. Please remove them. From user Joshb

Important!!!! You need to say why! VolodyA! V Anarhist Beta_M (converse) 03:15, 30 January 2012 (UTC)
