Welcome to Wikimedia Commons, Kurun!

Welcome to Commons[edit]

Hi Kurun! I noticed you uploading quite a few good images from NASA. Thanks a lot for that. You can upload the large version from NASA too, not only the medium sized. Don't bother about the file size, this should not be a problem. Regards --myself488 (talk) 22:32, 22 January 2010 (UTC)

When you format dates in the image-description like "2010-02-25" for today, dates can be automatically 'translatet' in other languages. This makes things easier for users not speaking English. --myself488 (talk) 11:46, 25 February 2010 (UTC)
Thanks for the tip. Will do
Unfortunately it only works if the formatation is exactly the same as above. You have to write the year at the beginning, then the month and at last the day. Regards --myself488 (talk) 21:24, 27 February 2010 (UTC)

あなたは日本人?

I am not a Japanese. What is the reason behind someone asking such a question ? What has a person's nationality have to do with Wikipedia editing?

Better source request for Image:SoyuzTMA12 Launch.jpg[edit]

Hello, please state the source differently: not directly to the image (to the .jpg link) but the page where you found the images. Thanks in advance for correcting. --High Contrast (talk) 13:39, 18 June 2010 (UTC)

Launch.jpg Here, you can see, how it is done correctly. Thanks for helping. --High Contrast (talk) 13:43, 18 June 2010 (UTC)

NASA images[edit]

I see you have been uploading a lot of NASA images. Can I ask you to please try and add the catalog template {{NASA-image}} to such future uploads ? That would be awfully helpful. TheDJ (talk) 00:27, 9 September 2010 (UTC)

Copyright status: File:Soyuz_TMA15_Launch.jpg[edit]

Hi,

I removed the NASA PD license from File:Soyuz TMA15 Launch.jpg because the image appears to have been created by ESA, and therefore would not be in the public domain. Just after the launch of Soyuz TMA-15 occurred last year, I uploaded a similar image from spaceflight.nasa.gov, but earlier this year I noticed in the metadata that it was taken by an ESA employee and nominated it for deletion). It seems strange that there aren't any NASA images of the launch, as they usually have a NASA photographer at Soyuz launches. --Jatkins (talk) 16:35, 6 November 2010 (UTC)

Hello, Kurun!

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.
