Hello, Kerry Raymond!

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.

For all your work categorizing Category:Photographic material from the Queensland State Archives 99of9 (talk) 10:10, 8 April 2013 (UTC)
Still appreciating your hard work! --99of9 (talk) 09:38, 23 May 2013 (UTC)
Under 2500 to go! I've tried to pitch in a bit too. It takes a long time doesn't it? --99of9 (talk) 02:53, 16 July 2014 (UTC)
It's one of those things I do when I don't really want to think too hard :-) I added a lot of Categories using Cat-a-Lot and AWB, so actually many of the "uncategorised" are in fact at least partially or often sufficiently categorised, but it still needs a manual look at each one. So the progress is probably greater than it seems. Kerry Raymond (talk) 03:01, 16 July 2014 (UTC)
Ding ding ding... under 2000! Thanks for the sustained effort. If you stay this attentive to it there's a danger I'll ask for your help on another few thousand aussie images that are currently in the pipeline... --99of9 (talk) 07:13, 19 September 2014 (UTC)
Notice how I have failed to volunteer for the CSIRO images so far :-) I've taken on a few too many things, so I am trying to clear the backlog before taking on any more commitments. I don't like having lots of things half-done. Kerry Raymond (talk) 07:15, 19 September 2014 (UTC)
Done! Kerry Raymond (talk) 10:41, 4 October 2014 (UTC)
Congrats and thanks! That's a huge outcome. You deserve another barnstar, but I'm not on a good enough connection right now to find the most appropriate one. --99of9 (talk) 13:53, 4 October 2014 (UTC)

For locating and suggesting the Category:Photographic material from the Queensland State Archives as a great source of historic Queensland media. 99of9 (talk) 10:05, 3 November 2014 (UTC)

PS I guess I awarded them in the wrong order... oh well. --99of9 (talk) 10:05, 3 November 2014 (UTC)

Queensland[edit]

It has become some kind of a standard for write "x year in" (at least when it comes to countries, towns and federated states). J 1982 (talk) 10:51, 8 April 2013 (UTC)

  • Yep, that is more than enough proof for anyone. I've added links to one photo, so anyone looking at it will know it is definitely your own work. If you don't get round to it I'll add similar links to the other photos which need them. Thank you for your contributions. :) Green Giant (talk) 09:14, 12 May 2014 (UTC)

Carts and Wagons[edit]

Hi, when categorising images would you please note that there is a major difference between wagons and carts. You and others are giving me sore fingers! Thanks, Eddaido (talk) 06:25, 31 October 2014 (UTC)

Hi, Eddaido! Sorry if I don't know the difference but I really don't know what I can do to fix the problem unless you point me at the file. I've been categorising thousands of photos from the Queensland State Archives over the past month or so, so I really don't remember them individually. But there is no need for you to get sore fingers to fix a problem like this, just use Help:Gadget-Cat-a-lot to pick out the wrong ones and re-categorise them. I re-categorise lots of things (in topic areas I do know about) that way. Kerry Raymond (talk) 19:46, 2 November 2014 (UTC)
Hi Kerry, carts have two wheels, wagons or waggons have four. Have just found your response and will go see if I (a poor computer illiterate kiwi) can understand about Help:Gadget-Cat-a-lot and come back. Thanks, Eddaido (talk) 04:19, 3 November 2014 (UTC)
Looks like Cat-a-lot could be useful. I don't think its now necessary in this case. I have just done two searches, Cart Brisbane and Cart Queensland. The first brought up just one (which I'd already fixed but it was in the text of the picture description which I'd have thought was done by the Archives — and Surely they would know.(?)) This is another example File:StateLibQld 2 182687 Filling a tank on a water cart at Warwick, Queensland, 1900-1910.jpg possibly because it was spoken of as a water cart though the men in the photo have pressed a waggon (I'd guess, because its so lightly built, its an old gig with the seats removed and a tray in their place) and a corrugated iron tank into service and some one has given it the generic name "water cart". Does that make sense? Its a (temporary) "water cart" made from a wagon and a tank.
Anyway I have now categorised it under Category:Horse-drawn wagons in Australia. So though I still have sore fingers (I see I made 44 files go into the new wagons category) I did fix the mistakes. I just needed to tell you about it. Thanks for your response, Eddaido (talk) 06:31, 3 November 2014 (UTC)

Category on userpage image[edit]

Hi Kerry - I reverted the category addition to my userpage image [1] since that image isn't meant to be used as an illustration for any South Georgia content, but is simply here for use on my user page. Hopefully that makes sense, but let me know if you disagree. -- Wrh2 (talk) 22:05, 30 December 2014 (UTC)

No problem. I had just stumbled on a bunch of uncategorised images of South Georgia Island so thought I'd gather up anything that mentioned it into a category. I visited South Georgia Island myself in 1996 and took loads of photos, but we didn't have digital cameras back then, so it's not so easy to contribute them (too much tedious scanning). Kerry Raymond (talk) 22:18, 30 December 2014 (UTC)

Category:South Georgia Island[edit]

We already have Category:South Georgia, and although this is both the name of the main island of the South Georgia islands and the island group, I think it will be confusing to have two categories ceovering more or less the same topic. - 4ing (talk) 22:12, 30 December 2014 (UTC)

Yes, I discovered that afterwards. I had assumed that any category name would involve the word "island" when I went searching for an existing category in order to categorise a number of uncategorised photos. I think there needs to be a category redirect when categories don't use the common name, so we don't waste more people's time. Kerry Raymond (talk) 22:31, 30 December 2014 (UTC)
Well, South Georgia is the proper name of the Island. But a redirect would be great. And thanks for the categorization work! - 4ing (talk) 22:39, 30 December 2014 (UTC)
I have now undone the categorisation work that I did as you told me it was wrong. This will have left a number of photos uncategorised. Sorry for trying to help; I'll leave it to the experts. Kerry Raymond (talk)
