Hello, Morgan Riley!

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"). 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.

What is the name of the street in your photo of Jackson Wardm Richmond, Virginia?[edit]

I also grew up in Richmond, Virginia! I wonder if your photo was taken on l9th Street downtown, near Main Street Station! It looks a lot like the Street where my Dad grew up! He was born in Baltimore, Maryland,like my Mom, but his family moved to Richmond when he was young. His Dad was a Horse & Mule Auctioneer. My Dad's first job was standing in the Tower of Main Street Station, near his house,and announcing the arrival of the train! Later,he was Copy Boy, Sports Writer, Sports Editor, and Copy Editor of the Richmond News Leader. He was also the Amateur Softball Association Commissioner for the State of Virginia. He was very active in Richmond Sports circles, first by playing Basketball with the Rotary Boys Club Team that won 62 games in a row, and then by writing Freelance Sports Publicity for many Richmond-area Sports Organizations,and his newspaper column and articles. He died in 1981. His house and street looked a lot like the one in your picture, and it was on the National Register of Historic Places! I am just wondering--- is that his street and his house? Also,your last name is Riley. A boy named Henry Riley was in my grade at school. He had red hair and freckles. Are you related? I will be in Richmond at the end of October for the 50th Reunion of Thomas Jefferson High School's Class of 1962! It would be fun to meet you!

Your photos are excellent! I wish my camera was as good! I made a movie of Richmond in 2000, but I missed some good shots! I had to get out of the car to get really good pictures! However, we did make a video for the family!My Dad lived a block from Main Street Station.He also lived near the Edgar Allen Poe House and St. John's Church. Our 4th grade class at Westhampton School toured the area, and I knew about those places, because my Grandpa's house was there! We used to visit on weekends, look at the old Victorian Furniture in the Dining Room, sleep upstairs in the Guest Bedroom,and bathe in the tub with legs on the floor. My Uncle owned a Poultry Shop down there too, and we used to visit him and the Farmer's Market! My Aunt ran the house and cooked the meals, because my Grandma died when I was 3. (I don't remember her!) I wish I had photos of that time, but I didn't have a camera until age 10! My Mom only took photos of us at our house,or when we went swimming at Moore's Lake,or at my Cousins' house! We all lived in the West End. My Sisters and I moved away after we grew up! My Cousins still live there though, and the oldest one will be 75 in January, for which I will also come for a visit! I do have photos, however, of my Grandma sitting on the front porch in her rocking chair, and there are wrought iron columns on the porch! my Sister also took photos of the street and it may be in my video, as well! There is no brick in Arizona; they import it from Mexico! Most houses here are stucco! Southern Architecture is still the best!

My name is Marilyn (Wolfe) Ruben. I now live in Arizona. It is a very strange place, and I often get homesick for "The Good Old Days!. Good thing we're coming to 2 Reunions this year! You can reply at mswr67@yahoo.com. Those are my initials, and I am now 67 years old. I'll be 68 next week! Thanks for your photos! They popped up on my Facebook page on the my Home Profile, next to: Birthplace: Richmond, Virginia. I clicked the Collage and saw all my favorite old childhood memories! Thank you for making my day! It is now 3 a.m. here and I have been on your Collage page of Wikipedia for 2-3 hours or more, trying to find you! I have to go to sleep now!

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

Autopatrol given[edit]

Commons Autopatrolled.svg

Hello. I just wanted to let you know that I have granted autopatrol rights to your account; the reason for this is that I believe you are sufficiently trustworthy and experienced to have your contributions automatically sighted. This will have no effect on your editing, and is simply intended to help users watching Recent changes or Recent uploads to find unproductive edits amidst the productive ones. Thank you. odder (talk) 23:43, 4 February 2013 (UTC)

Hi and Thanks[edit]

Hi Morgan; Thanks for noticing our interests overlap. I could use help learning what is wrong with an image I uploaded. There is a notice on my commons user page and I do not know what is wrong.

I added a few categories to a couple of your images. I still am uncertain about categorization. I have been accused of over-categorization on Wikipedia and read the policies, but I just do not understand where the line is between categorization and over-categorization. I have been looking through images on commons and as I see good images in my areas of interest/expertise I look to see the quality of images in the relevant Wikipedia articles and have, in my own opinion, made good contributions to many articles just by adding existing images. Now I am rambling...see you around. Jim Derby (talk) 23:10, 23 February 2013 (UTC)

Permission Request - The Supreme Court of Virginia Building[edit]

Hi Morgan,

I would like to request permission to use your photograph "SupremeCourtofVirginiaBuilding.JPG" in an upcoming publication, and the Creative Commons license for this image does not meet the requirements we need to use it. Could you please contact me at jhalliday@ets.org, so that I may send you a license agreement for your express permission to use the image? In addition, do you happen to have a higher resolution of the image? If not, I'm pretty sure that the image that you posted should be sufficient. Thank you.

Best Regards, Jim Halliday
