Hello, M7!

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"). 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.

Your deletions on Commons[edit]

Please do not perform deletions on Commons using your steward access. You hid content on your talk page (this page) on 1 December 2014, even though stewards are only allowed to use their privileges in emergency situations. In future, please let such issues be sorted out by locally elected administrators; you can request their help at Commons:Administrators' noticeboard, by contacting one of them on their talk page (or via e-mail), or by requesting assistance on the #wikimedia-commons IRC channel on freenode. Thank you. odder (talk) 19:13, 14 February 2015 (UTC)

It was one of those insults by Wikinger, crosswiki as usual. If you feel that stewards are not able to act immediately against blatant vandalism by well known LTAs on this wiki, just say so. Thank you, M7 (talk) 20:13, 14 February 2015 (UTC)
