First steps tutorial

Our first steps tour and our FAQ will help you a lot after registration. They explain how to customize the interface (for example the language), how to upload files and our basic licensing policy. You don't need technical skills in order to contribute here. Be bold contributing here and assume good faith for the intentions of others. This is a wiki—it is really easy.

Getting help

More information is available at the community portal. You may ask questions at the help desk, village pump or on IRC channel #wikimedia-commons (direct access). You can also contact an administrator on their talk page. If you have a specific copyright question, ask at Commons talk:Licensing.

Goodies, tips and tricks
  • Put Babel boxes on your user page so others know what languages you can speak and indicate your graphic abilities.
  • All your uploads are stored in your personal gallery
  • Please sign your name on Talk pages by typing ~~~~
  • Use the CommonSense tool to find good categories for your files (then other people can find them too!)
  • To link to an image page without embedding the image, type: [[:Image:Foo.jpg]], which produces: Image:Foo.jpg
  • If you're copying files from another project, be sure to use the CommonsHelper
Made a mistake?
  • Did you want to rename or move a file? Simply upload the file again and mark the old one like this: {{bad name|correct name}}
  • For more information read the full deletion guidelines
(P.S. Would you like to provide feedback on this message?)

Egyptian coins


I have ordered deletion of all images of Egyptian coins I uploaded. As I say there, "I uploaded this image thinking that images of Egyptian money were not copyrighted. As I could be wrong, please delete this image as soon as possible. No harm was intended. I am deeply sorry."

As money copyright is a tricky business, I have stopped uploading any images of coins (I've got a handful of them).

Mass deletion request


If you want to start a deletion request on many similar images using a same reasoning, it should be done at a single mass deletion request and not in many individual ones, to help having all the opinions in a single place. For instructions, see Commons:Deletion requests/Mass deletion request Belgrano (talk) 15:19, 6 December 2009 (UTC)[reply]

File:JoleneBlalockEgyptCropped.jpg has been listed at Commons:Deletion requests so that the community can discuss whether it should be kept or not. We would appreciate it if you could go to voice your opinion about this at its entry.

If you created this file, please note that the fact that it has been proposed for deletion does not necessarily mean that we do not value your kind contribution. It simply means that one person believes that there is some specific problem with it, such as a copyright issue. Please see Commons:But it's my own work! for a guide on how to address these issues.

Please remember to respond to and – if appropriate – contradict the arguments supporting deletion. Arguments which focus on the nominator will not affect the result of the nomination. Thank you!

Thanks for [1]. I love it when those toolbar buttons move around as the page refreshes, and I end up accidentally clicking one - usually I actually spot what my clumsy mouse has done, but thanks for noticing this one I missed... Begoon - talk 16:44, 3 November 2013 (UTC)[reply]

Hi Begoon, no problem at all. :) PhilKnight (talk) 17:22, 3 November 2013 (UTC)[reply]

Unblock request


Hi PhilKnight, please unblock my IP address. I was learning how to post article. My intention was not bad. Please unblock me.

I guess you're referring to Wikipedia:User_talk:Tazrin_Rahman#Blocked_indefinitely, in which case, no, I'm not going to unblock you, because I agree with the admin - Jamie - who declined your appeal and gave the explanation "You were warned multiple times to stop posting copyrighted material, and you continued to do so."
