Hello, Magioladitis!

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").

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.

File:Why Wikipedia does not have women's point of view.jpg[edit]

Hi, looking at File:Why Wikipedia does not have women's point of view.jpg, I see that in the bottom left corner it is licensed CC BY-NC-SA; however, you have used a CC BY license - I should point out that your omission of the SA is a breach of the licensing terms. Also, since it's got NC, it's not eligible for upload to Commons - see Commons:Creative Commons copyright tags. --Redrose64 (talk; at English Wikipedia) 16:42, 31 January 2016 (UTC)

Redrose64 what is the correct way to upload the image, if any? I created the poster but the image in the background the logo of the feminist group. They allow upload but they do not wish any alteration of their logo to be used. -- Magioladitis (talk) 16:55, 31 January 2016 (UTC)

Redrose64 I used the wizard to add the CC licence on commons. Please feel free to fix this to CC-NC-SA or Wikipedia does not support this? -- Magioladitis (talk) 16:56, 31 January 2016 (UTC)

The thing is, the NC licenses are not acceptable either on Commons or Wikipedia; that's why we don't have license templates like Template:cc-by-nc-4.0, Template:cc-by-nc-sa-4.0, w:en:Template:cc-by-nc-4.0, or w:en:Template:cc-by-nc-sa-4.0. You could upload it to Wikipedia as non-free content, but you would need a good fair-use rationale. --Redrose64 (talk; at English Wikipedia) 17:06, 31 January 2016 (UTC)
Redrose64 I could ask and replace the image to add a different CC license at the bottom but then that would mean someone could take the Telesilla logo and alter it for commercial use? This is what I am trying to avoid here. If the answer is yes, then we can just delete the image. -- Magioladitis (talk) 17:10, 31 January 2016 (UTC)
That's the problem... I would say that since it's likely that Τελεσιλλα would not want their design to be commercially exploited, it's probably best to request deletion, which will keep them happy. Since COM:GCSD#G7 can apply here, you can use {{SDG7}} for this. --Redrose64 (talk; at English Wikipedia) 17:34, 31 January 2016 (UTC)
