Your own sub-category
Hi Michael, since you have added over 800 images to Wikimedia Commons, I created you your own category, so all you have to do is to add Category:Photographs by Michael Vadon to every image you add to wikimedia. It has the benefit of keeping all your images organised in one category..and thanks for adding your awesome High quality images to Wikimedia Commons :)--Stemoc 16:37, 21 June 2015 (UTC)
- Hello? Would you do this please? According to official policy of Wikimedia Commons, all images "should be put in the most specific category/categories that fit(s) the page (not directly to its parent categories)." Therefore, if an image of Jeb Bush is from 2015, please do not put it into the top-level "Jeb Bush"!category, and instead put it into the sub-category "Jeb Bush in 2015". Please do not put it in both, which defeats the purpose of categorization and requires other editors to spend a great deal of time fixing. Thanks very much.Anythingyouwant (talk) 06:25, 31 August 2015 (UTC)
I love your photos, they are of great quality, and good composition. They really enrich the Wikipedia world with the 2016 election. It would, however, be nice if you gave images titles which aren't quite so long. Titling with your name in the filename could be considered self-promotion, and I wouldn't like to see you in trouble. Maybe a title like "Gov. Scott Walker in Amherst NH (1234)" and put a serial number in the parenthesis. That would make editing articles easier, and avoid any future trouble. Thanks!
