Hello, Maxima m!

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.

new set of icons[edit]

moved to Talk:BSicon/New icons and icon requests/Archive 1

tired ...[edit]

Wheather is fine, sun is shining, and I'm hacking some greetings to you halfway around the world into my keyboard. It's definetly time for a change ...

By now more than 220 BSicons have been subsituted by some proper named one, since mostly used in BS-templates manually exchanged in thousands of pages and erased afterwards. I think You did a good job on ja-WP, always just some "left-overs" to check there ;-)

Still over 100 BSicons are scheduled and even more untouched at all (esp. among the light railway icons, not to speak of the mixed ones ...) Somehow I feel like Don Quijote fighting windmills :(

Ok, maybe I started the discussion about a consistent and sensible naming scheme a bit brisk (in german "wie die Axt im Walde" - like the axe in the wood ;-) but I quickly got the notion, that esp. on en-WP people just wanted to talk and keep the ancestral names, even if that implies to have more inconsistencies than correct names ... in fact, there used to be examples of three icons showing exactly the same, but all of those named wrong!

At a certain point I stopped talking and started doing, so I mustn't moan if others didn't follow ... although I hoped to find more people quarrelling with those funny names and angry about the fact, that the only existing naming policy is the 1:1 translation of the original germal policy, two years old by now and still "under construction"!!

Only very few joined (like you, thanks :), others are still complaining about me causing too much work – which wouldn't have been required if they made up a the policy before creating tons of new icons, resp. if they asked de-WP before changing the 'ext'-prefixed icons to 'tex' for unknown reason thus ignoring the usage of german {{template:BSe}}!

What I really regret is that I accidently managed to snub User:Erik Baas ... I have no clue what I did or failed to do to make him upset, he even doesn't answer my questions :(

But as in a saying, if one door closes another one opens, User:Bob1960evens from the english canal project adapted the railway system to those "canal-only-BSicons" (which to me is a en:Contradictio in adjecto ;-) and adding some icons we might use for light rail as well, e.g. "uLSTRq" instead of "uHLUECKE".

Thank you for listening that far ... and sorry for spamming you talk page ;-)

P.S.: sw-0.4? Hakuna matata! :) axpdeHello! 10:10, 10 April 2009 (UTC)

@Axpde: here's a clue: you didn't answer my questions, and you deleted dozens of my icons (where simplu renamnig them would have been sufficient), thereby destroying many hours of work. And don't say you didn't know that, because I told you the same before. - Erik Baas (talk) 21:23, 10 April 2009 (UTC)
Thanks alot for answering (sorry, Maxima for abusing your talk page ;-)
The only question I found unanswered yesterday I had a sudden inspiration this morning when waking up (sometimes even ideas need some "force" ;-)
Yes you told me, but at that time I already had uploaded many of the those icons I wanted to exchange. I know you're a skilled svg designer, and we "battled" to have the smallest code, but some of your older icons used to be bigger than our late designs, thus I reduced the size at the same time. Those mixed and underground only crossings had to be exchanged concurrently ... and now they share the same design with the "tower flag stops": BSicon THSTo.svgBSicon umKRZo.svg!
Creating and uploading new icons requires time I glady like to save, and even renaming icons by admin tools requires manual changed on most pages ... and that's the biggest part of the work. I promise I won't nominate your icons "unforced" (i.e. unless they aren't already in proceeding exchange). Happy Easter days! axpdeHello! 07:55, 11 April 2009 (UTC)
Season is nice in my town also, on river banks and in parks numerous groups with their lunch baskets and beers, wines (Japanese and European both) are under cherry trees to admire blossoms. Sasa si choto, si baridi, maua mingi, nzuri sana.
@axpde and Erik Baas: Your discussions in my talk page are anytime welcomed concerning BSicon, as far as trying things settled up. I am not sure what has happened between you, so it is pity but I am unable to settle you two.
Your appreciation of changing pages in JA be to the user named ja:User:210., whose name you will notice in your watch list in JA, who is silent in edit summaries but working much harder and more often than me on shifting IDs to revised ones.
We in JAWP are, in my personal point of view, neutral in changing names to your revised ones. Presumably it is because our daily script is not Roman and we think IDs as a sort of loan. I am pleased to read your words that we are still in the same line that the names be sorted up. Contributors in EN are supposedly prefer their chaotic codes which I do not understand. I do not mind which side is "left", but uniformity is the most welcome.
It must be informed that we agreed the procedure of files of new shapes (location just for your information, written of course in Japanese. dated 2009-March-14, 05:13 UTC). It is something like the way Erik Baas used (or is using?): First, upload with a tentative ID of a number from 5000 to 5999, then after discussion and agreement with concerned persons outside JAWP (including you) a fixed ID will be given. In this manner ID violation can be avoided, such as unimaginable HKRZo-ELEV and 'quite ... well ... "inventive"' ÜABZfg. I also hope this agreement will prevent crazy shaped, or nonsensely defined icons.
Lastly, it may make your work simpler that instead of uploading new files and nominating identical elders for deletion, you could ask admins to move files which I do not know the procedure in detail. File move may not kill brain children, I mean the edit histories of existing files, of other users such as Erik Baas, those in EN, and me, and I guess a redirect from old to new names will be made that saves you changing old IDs to new in numerous pages. I am afraid of your numerous nominations for deletion being understood as an anti-cooperative activity of the Commons community and BSicon users. --Maxima m (talk) 14:38, 12 April 2009 (UTC)

Picture of the Year voting round 1 open[edit]

Dear Wikimedians,

Wikimedia Commons is happy to announce that the 2012 Picture of the Year competition is now open. We're interested in your opinion as to which images qualify to be the Picture of the Year for 2012. Voting is open to established Wikimedia users who meet the following criteria:

  1. Users must have an account, at any Wikimedia project, which was registered before Tue, 01 Jan 2013 00:00:00 +0000 [UTC].
  2. This user account must have more than 75 edits on any single Wikimedia project before Tue, 01 Jan 2013 00:00:00 +0000 [UTC]. Please check your account eligibility at the POTY 2012 Contest Eligibility tool.
  3. Users must vote with an account meeting the above requirements either on Commons or another SUL-related Wikimedia project (for other Wikimedia projects, the account must be attached to the user's Commons account through SUL).

Hundreds of images that have been rated Featured Pictures by the international Wikimedia Commons community in the past year are all entered in this competition. From professional animal and plant shots to breathtaking panoramas and skylines, restorations of historically relevant images, images portraying the world's best architecture, maps, emblems, diagrams created with the most modern technology, and impressive human portraits, Commons features pictures of all flavors.

For your convenience, we have sorted the images into topic categories. Two rounds of voting will be held: In the first round, you can vote for as many images as you like. The first round category winners and the top ten overall will then make it to the final. In the final round, when a limited number of images are left, you must decide on the one image that you want to become the Picture of the Year.

To see the candidate images just go to the POTY 2012 page on Wikimedia Commons

Wikimedia Commons celebrates our featured images of 2012 with this contest. Your votes decide the Picture of the Year, so remember to vote in the first round by January 30, 2013.

Thanks,
the Wikimedia Commons Picture of the Year committee
