Tip: Categorizing images[edit]

Hello, Orderinchaos!

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.

wow[edit]

thats a lot to get through! SatuSuro (talk) 12:39, 31 March 2į012 (UTC)

btw i am pretty sure http://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/File:OIC_Augusta_hillview_road_2.jpg is in the park - close enough anyways SatuSuro (talk) 12:41, 31 March 2012 (UTC)
tahts actually a photo of green hill and it is in the park ✓ Done SatuSuro (talk) 13:05, 31 March 2012 (UTC)
Yeah tell me about it - I'm trying to clear out nearly 7 years of photos I've taken and get them up on Commons. Most of them are fairly low resolution and some of the Geraldton ones are even from a camera that died on the trip, but there seems to be value in having them here. Orderinchaos (talk) 14:33, 31 March 2012 (UTC)
I've got a bit of a backlog myself. I do have some dating from about 2008 but still got 2010, 2011 and 2012 to upload. Bidgee (talk) 08:43, 2 April 2012 (UTC)
"there seems to be value in having them here" - absolutely! The more, the merrier. We can get picky about quality if and when our coverage significantly improves ... Mattinbgn (talk) 04:12, 4 April 2012 (UTC)

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.

File:OIC fitzroy mormon church.jpg[edit]

Thanks for your quick question; perhaps this would be a good file name: File:LDS meetinghouse in Fitzroy AU.jpg -- 208.81.184.4 15:30, 23 April 2012 (UTC)

Sports venues in Australia[edit]

Leeton isn't really a city, reason why I didn't add by city. IMO we need a by town category. Bidgee (talk) 12:00, 6 May 2012 (UTC)

Category:Churches in Western Australia by locality[edit]

Hi OIC. Not sure I agree with this edit. What is the rationale behind it? Churches in Western Australia can be categorised in many different ways and it makes sense to have a separate category for localities rather than lump them in the main one lest it get too cluttered. -- Mattinbgn (talk) 07:37, 24 May 2012 (UTC)

There was only two in the category, and neither was actually a locality (one was a hazily defined urban centre and the other was a large metropolitan area containing said urban centre). I looked around Australia and found an absence of such categories elsewhere. Orderinchaos (talk) 07:39, 24 May 2012 (UTC)
There are plenty of building type by locality categories for Australia and commons isn't as concerned as enwiki about populating cats so long as they are logical. I would have kept it and I am sure it will be recreated sooner or later. Deleted now anyway. -- Mattinbgn (talk) 07:55, 25 May 2012 (UTC)
Got no opposition to recreating it if it's needed later. The way it was being used though was not logical. Orderinchaos (talk) 12:37, 25 May 2012 (UTC)

hmm[edit]

iincorrectly addressed issue - please carry on - i have just removed an irrelevent rant - cheers SatuSuro (talk) 14:45, 12 June 2012 (UTC)

Damn you...[edit]

Another one for the collection...

After our chat the other day, now every time I journey outside Brisbane I feel obligated to take pictures of the local street signs! Lankiveil (talk) 11:01, 16 June 2012 (UTC).

Yay! :) While I can gloat about the fact we've now got more than everyone else, I'd actually like to see the collection completed for Australia or at worst metropolitan/near-metropolitan Australia. :P Orderinchaos (talk) 13:51, 16 June 2012 (UTC)
I'm still kick myself for not getting a photo of the Dick Ward Drive sign in Fannie Bay, only in Darwin! ;) Bidgee (talk) 14:35, 16 June 2012 (UTC)
Also, I present the most boring LGA border monument ever. Lankiveil (talk) 13:02, 31 January 2013 (UTC).

Add Rainbow Beach to the collection

LDS Meeting House in Doubleview[edit]

Hello. Can you please add the address in your description of File:LDS meetinghouse in Doubleview AU.jpg? Thank you.Zigzig20s (talk) 11:03, 4 June 2014 (UTC)

Thank you. I wonder if we could find a reliable weblink with the address so that it can be added to the Doubleview article on Wikipedia. I tried google but to no avail. Let me know if you find one please.Zigzig20s (talk) 00:05, 5 June 2014 (UTC)
Their site isn't the easiest to navigate but I found [1] Orderinchaos (talk) 03:36, 5 June 2014 (UTC)
Thanks. I added it. I love their website!Zigzig20s (talk) 11:34, 7 June 2014 (UTC)

Sorry for the late reply[edit]

Hi OIC. I have replied to your message on my talk page. That is a quite bizarre display! Sorry for the delay in replying but my interest in Wikimedia sites waxes and wanes nowadays - mainly wanes to be honest. Still, I have some photos to upload soon so will be back here for a while.

Hi Orderinchaos. Did you see the possible copyright violation of File:Koala climbing tree off Montacute Road near Adelaide.ogv at https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vleBITd4YaY ? Greets --Capricorn4049 (talk) 10:53, 12 August 2015 (UTC)

Thanks for bringing it to my attention - it seems to have been removed by Youtube before I got to it. Orderinchaos (talk) 00:54, 22 August 2015 (UTC)
