Welcome to Peterdownunder's talk page!


I'm mostly busy on the Simple English Wikipedia. You will find my main userpage there. You can leave me a message here, but it might be some time until I read it. It would be quicker to contact me at my talk page at the Simple English Wikipeda.

Have taken a lot of photos on a recent trip to the Corner Country of Australia. Will add them as I get time.

Hello, Peterdownunder!

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.

Hmm, I have put categories in when uploading, but they disappear! --Peterdownunder (talk) 12:42, 11 August 2009 (UTC)

Thank you for providing images to Wikimedia Commons. Please keep in mind that images and other files on Commons must be under a free license and should be useful to the Wikimedia projects. To allow others to use your files, some additional information must be given on the description page. Most importantly:

  • Describe what it is about in a short sentence. (What does the image show?)
  • State the author and the date of creation. If you made it yourself, say so explicitly. If it is from another Wikimedia user, link to the person's local user page. Best to use CommonsHelper.
  • If you did not create the file yourself, state the source you got it from.
  • Add a copyright tag - images without an appropriate license tag will be deleted.
  • Add the image to one or more gallery pages and/or appropriate categories, so it can be found by others. To find out where an image belongs, you can use CommonsSense.

If you copied the file from another wiki, please copy all information given there and say who uploaded it to that wiki. Use CommonsHelper.

It is recommended to use Template:Information to put that information on the description page. Have a look at Template talk:Information for details of the use of this template.

You can edit the description page and change the text. Uploading a new version of the file does not change the description of the file.

Please add as much information as possible. If there is not sufficient information, the file may have to be deleted. For more information, follow the Commons:First steps guide. If you need help or have questions, please ask at the Help desk.

Thank you.

Queensland State Archives photos[edit]

Hi, Peter! I see you too are categorising these photos. I think though you might have been following my lead in removing the category "QSA media uploaded by User:99of9 (uncategorised)" which I realise now was not what I was supposed to have been doing. I should have replaced it with the category "QSA media uploaded by User:99of9" (that is, just prune off the "(uncategorised)" part). I am going through now re-adding the category "QSA media uploaded by User:99of9" to all the photos without it, both the ones I did and the ones you did. So I thought you might like to know what was happening. Sorry if I lead you astray with my bad example. Kerry Raymond (talk) 06:29, 23 April 2013 (UTC)

I was following your example, I will check my edits, and make sure that I do it correctly from now on. There are some great photos. Let me know if there are any problems with the categories too. Thanks. --Peterdownunder (talk) 12:49, 23 April 2013 (UTC)
