Hello, Odrade123!
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.

Your mass-uploads in July/August 2011, referring to Switzerland : Categorisation[edit]

Hi, please use useful categories and don't over-categorize your images, i.e. please do not categorize your uploads (an example of your recent activity):

Category:Suisse +
Category:Vaud +
Category:Ollon

You'll help to save time and capacity on commons by categorizing:

Category:Ollon, or, preferred when you upload several images referring to the same object, usually the name of the (EN/FR) wikipedia article the images are used in, p.e. Category:Ollon Castle etc.

Please use as far as possible the most speciic category of the regarding city/town/village or district (if there's no category) etc., or, a localized better 'fitting' i.e. the 'most fitting"' category(ies). Do not add - in addition - the categories of the "parent category", among them cities, states/cantons and countries etc.

For further information on categories please read Commons:Categories referring to an accurate categorisation, simplifying your further uploads and categorisation in general. If you have any questions, please feel free to ask them at the commons:help desk.

Thank you for your assistance, 84.75.160.122 18:40, 8 August 2011 (UTC)[reply]

Hi, once again, please try to avoid that senseless way of categorisation, thanks 84.75.160.122 19:41, 23 August 2011 (UTC)[reply]
