Hello, KarinCox!

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:


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]]

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.

German names of villages in Poland[edit]

Hello, someone have brought to my attention that you are now creating double named categories in German and Polish for villages in Poland. The rule about the languages at Wikimedia Commons is that it is multilingual, however when we are talking about categories we stick with English. With the names of the cities, towns and villages we stick with the offical name of the place given by the local goverment. Therefore categories for villages in Poland named in German are only misleading. You are free however to create redirects as you like. Of course the description might be in any language (see: Commons:Language policy). The category for the historical Landkreis Greifenberg in Pommern is not a very good idea, but a gallery named Landkreis Greifenberg in Pommern (or Landkreis Greifenberg i. Pom.) is a perfectly acceaptable solution. My proposition is that you stick with Polish names in categories (however you are free to describe the categories in German), and create a German named redirect to a category on demand.
If something is not clear please take a look at the Commons:Galleries, Commons:Categories, and particulary a very short Commons:Language policy.
In a very particular example, we place all the pictures in the category:Kłodkowo and create a redirect in category:Klätkow. --sfu (talk) 22:12, 9 November 2012 (UTC)

My intension is to stick with the policies of Wikimedia Commons. Let's foreget about the category about landkreis. Doesn't matter. The most important are categories about villages. Sorry, but I think that you know Polish names as you create double named categories. I was trying to explain as simple as possible in the last sentence of my previous message how should it look with the example of village Kłodkowo (Klätkow). You put everything in Polish named category, and create a German named redirect. You can decribe the category (I mean the text which will be displayed for people visiting the category) even in German only (eventually someone else will add a Polish and English description, but it's not necessarilly). As I undertand you have problem with categorising the villages in categories of gminas. It's not a problem, as all of those villages are described in English Wikipedia, where you will find the information easily or even in the German Wikipedia for a lot of villages. If a redirect will be created, somone searching for a German name of a village will be redirected a Polish named category, where there will be a German descrption. --sfu (talk) 07:40, 10 November 2012 (UTC)
The bot is not working correctly so I have made all the moving manualy. Are you happy with how the category and gallery for the village of Kłodkowo looks now. This is more or less how I do imagine that, but I see it's much easies to show it than to describe it in words. --sfu (talk) 07:56, 10 November 2012 (UTC)
You respond by going into my talk page. Once you save it, the message will apear at the bottom of the list. The redirect you do like in category:Klätkow (just click edit and see the code). I'll help you with cleaning staff up, just link me the categories, galleries, etc. --sfu (talk) 14:42, 10 November 2012 (UTC)

villages, powiats, etc.[edit]


first of all sorry for not responind for long time. I was pretty busy.

  • about the name of powiat/county. The concensus now in English Wikipedia is that the name "county" is used as an English term for Polish powiat. If you really feel a need to unify the names of categories it should be changes to county then. So f.e. Category:Pustkowo (powiat gryficki) to Category:Pustkowo, Gryfice County. I don't think the redirect is nececerily as long as you change links to this category in all wikipedias. If don't want to this this additional work leave redirect then.
  • you can not delete files you have uploaded. Only administator can do that. As I have this rights you can ask me. The formal way is to use templete speedy deletion, so then one of admins will do the work.
  • according to all info I have Zielin is in Gryfino County (not Gryfice) located closed to the Oder river. Also there's only one village of this name in Poland.
  • about the Pomerania category, long time ago there was a discussion, and the final conlusion was that we don't put the categorie of villages in the categories of historical regions. We only put the villages in nowaday's addministarive division scheme (so gmina, county, voivodeship). The argument was that is't making more mess, historical borders were changing all the time, and finaly there is more than double work if you would like to put all the villages and town in as well historical and contemporary categries. Taking into acount that even the contemporary staff is still in mess after years of work, I think it's only a waste of time. Summarising, we only put media and categories stricly connected this historical region in it's category, so this is f.e. old maps, pictures of tradisional dressing, dishes from the region etc.
  • about the rights, if the files where not uploaded anywhere on the internet allready just upload them with the nameof the author given. If it were a proove of an agreement would be neeeded. Than can be for example and email from your friend.

Once again sory for a delay. --sfu (talk) 13:06, 21 November 2012 (UTC)

You're right about Zielin. Work here, on commons, is voluntary. If you have anything specific to delete, rename (category, file) write to me. --sfu (talk) 16:33, 26 November 2012 (UTC)
