There seems to be a problem regarding the description and or licensing of this particular file. Could you please resolve these problems, which are described on the page linked in above? Thank you. --Orgullomoore 07:51, 24 February 2007 (UTC)

Done. It's just my mistake. :) --Octahedron80 07:59, 24 February 2007 (UTC)


Hi Octahedron80. You marked the above mentioned image as "copyright violation". I transferred it yesterday from here, in the line "Permission" of the InfoBox it is clearly marked as "Released under the GNU Free Documentation License". Please explain your problem with this. Thank you. --hdamm 06:43, 30 March 2007 (UTC)

This file has incorrect license. Its talk page (th) said that "2T" who originally uploaded in the smaller version took from a web (as fair-use), and then "Yoong Cha Mud" stretched the image and claimed into GFDL himself. So "2T" later requested for deleting this file caused by wrong permission. So this file is illegal to exist. --Octahedron80 15:49, 30 March 2007 (UTC)


✓ Done, thanks for the suggestion. Cheers, F l a n k e r 09:27, 8 August 2007 (UTC)

Tip: Categorizing images[edit]

Hello, Octahedron80!

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.

Help needed[edit]

Hello Octahedron80!

I saw on your user page that you speak native Thai.

Could you please explain to user Bog on Commons what a license is and how he can upload his images on Commons.

I think he/she does not speak English at all and all his/her images were deleted because of copyright problems.

Thanks a lot in advance.

Best regards. Peter17 (talk) 12:19, 11 July 2009 (UTC)

I think my friend already did. --Octahedron80 (talk) 18:29, 13 July 2009 (UTC)

What practical use are these extremely small and blurry screendumps? -- AnonMoos (talk)

Using in text templates, they have tiny size suitable for text. (They don't tend to be used at large size.) Those glyphs are not available in general so they needed to be made. See file usages and you will understand. --Octahedron80 (talk) 12:11, 19 October 2012 (UTC)
