Hello, Levdr1lp!
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.

Thank you! Levdr1lp / talk 00:32, 18 January 2014 (UTC)

you reverted my edit?[edit]

File:WMMS Presents Cat Stevens - 1976 print ad.jpg

You reverted my edit , why? Pallap (talk) 20:59, 18 January 2014 (UTC)

@Pallap: I think I made my reasons clear in the edit summary. Levdr1lp / talk 18:09, 23 January 2014 (UTC)

Deletion of File:WXXIAMFMTVHeadquarters.JPG[edit]

Could you expand upon your legal theory given that 90% of your uploads are unmodified copies of others' logos? -- DanielPenfield (talk) 08:10, 16 September 2014 (UTC)

@DanielPenfield: Consider reviewing Threshold of originality and Public domain. Levdr1lp / talk 18:31, 20 September 2014 (UTC)
In other words, when you copy it wholesale and upload it, it's automatically "just a bunch of lines and letters that anyone could come up with". But when I photograph a building to which the owner has affixed a logo, then the entire scene--street, sidewalk, clouds in the sky--is automatically "a precious work of originality." -- DanielPenfield (talk) 10:52, 21 September 2014 (UTC)
@DanielPenfield: Was your upload deleted? No, because an administrator concluded that the "PBS Kids" logo, while non-free, is sufficiently small to qualify as De minimis. If the logo covered a larger portion of the image, then it very well may have been deleted (see Commons:Derivative works for a detailed explanation). As for my own uploads and why I chose to upload them, again, I suggest you either review the links I already posted above, or review this list of PD licenses for images which fall within the scope of the Commons. Levdr1lp / talk 06:59, 24 September 2014 (UTC)
Sorry! I forgot that you are the ultimate authority as to what is and is not copyrightable. Therefore, anything you upload by your command "consists of simple geometric shapes and/or text" and therefore is automatically not copyrightable because it was uploaded by His Copyright Majesty. But when I upload a picture of a building with a logo that "consists of simple geometric shapes and/or text" that logo is automatically copyrightable and copyrighted because I am a lesser creature than His Copyright Majesty. -- DanielPenfield (talk) 01:03, 25 September 2014 (UTC)
@DanielPenfield: Look, I thought your upload was possibly a copyright violation, so I nominated it for deletion. But an administrator decided to keep it. So what's the problem here? Files get nominated for deletion every day; some are deleted, others are kept. Don't take it personally, and please at least try to AGF. Feel free to stop the name calling while you're at it. Levdr1lp / talk 04:21, 25 September 2014 (UTC)
Yes, Your Copyright Majesty! May every peasant bow to Your Imperial Wishes for You are the Ultimate Authority on What Is and What Is Not Copyrightable! File:PBS KIDS.png -- DanielPenfield (talk) 07:37, 25 September 2014 (UTC)
@DanieldPenfield: Thank you for bringing that upload to my attention. Levdr1lp / talk 06:42, 26 September 2014 (UTC)
