Tip: Categorizing images[edit]

Hello, Onceinawhile!

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.

Palestinian Citizenship 1925[edit]

http://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/File:Palestinian_Citizenship_Order_1925.jpg at the top of the document Palestinian Citizenship 1925 Does it really matter that the remainder of the document is in Hebrew when referencing this image to show Palestinian Citizenship was a reality in 1925 and presumably until May 14th 1948? ...

1920 Syrian mandate flag[edit]

This flag is obscure (it was used at best for a few months, and solid information on it is hard to come by), but I don't think it really falls into the fictional flag category. In any case, it's not nearly as fictional as the stupid "mandate civil ensigns" that User:Gryffindor seemingly created out of pure nothing one bored rainy day, but which for some reason apparently cannot be deleted...

File:Historical boundaries of Palestine.svg[edit]

What are the green lines? Are they supposed to be late Ottoman Vilayet and Sandjak boundaries? If so, then there are discrepancies from other maps I've seen. If they're supposed to be something else, then that something else should be explained on the image description page and/or the article in which the image is used (en:Definitions of Palestine), which is not the case now... AnonMoos (talk) 20:50, 21 December 2012 (UTC)

2013 map[edit]

hello Once, i've noticed you were working on File:Palestinian National Authority within Israel, 2013.svg. However i must note that since late December 2012 and especially since January 2013, the PNA was completely transformed into the State of Palestine. I would hence like to ask you to modify the image into "State of Palestine, 2013" title (or something of that sort.Greyshark09 (talk) 19:22, 15 July 2013 (UTC)

Hi Greyshark, i'd be happy to help but i don't think i can - i believe image title changes need admin help (at least i know i had help last time i changed one). Oncenawhile (talk) 10:17, 18 July 2013 (UTC)

File:Mandate for Palestine (legal instrument).png[edit]

I have uploaded a PNG image file which is extracted from your File:Mandate for Palestine (legal instrument).svg, because such historical document should not be converted to vector graphic and hence should not be an SVG image. I also notified User:AnonMoos about my recent upload and asking how to replace your SVG image by my PNG image. --Quest for Truth (talk) 05:43, 4 November 2015 (UTC)
