Hello, Phoenix7777!

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:


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]]

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.

File:Africa map.jpg[edit]

Dear Phoenix777,

I had nominated this map for deletion...and the uploader has no objections in the DR request. However, the map is rather heavily used on Czech wikipedia. It can be kept if someone like you can only upload the borders of South Sudan on it. The colours of the countries in Africa are all blue. Can you consider uploading the borders of South Sudan onto the old map showing a united North and South Sudan? Just curious. If you can then, I will withdraw this DR nomination and the map can continue to be used on wikipedia. If not, its OK. This is definitely my final request.

Thank you for reading this message. Best Regards, --Leoboudv (talk) 20:18, 30 December 2012 (UTC)

✓ Done―― Phoenix7777 (talk) 23:25, 30 December 2012 (UTC)
  • Thanks for all your kind help here. I won't bother you with anymore map requests. PS: If you like native Indian art or European ceramic art wares, I have put a lot of my photos on my own Commons userpage from the University of BC in Vancouver, Canada! Enjoy them if you wish. Best Regards, --Leoboudv (talk) 00:51, 31 December 2012 (UTC)

Dear Phoenix7777: I find the figure about "World MERS Outbreak" that is made by you. Can you tell me where can I find the original data? Or can you share the original data with me? I want to use the value to do some statistic studies. Thanks a lot!

COM:ANU#File:Japanese Special Naval Landing Forces in Battle of Shanghai 1937.jpg[edit]

The dispute over this file's description page is discussed at COM:ANU. Thanks. -- とある白い猫 ちぃ? 23:24, 5 August 2015 (UTC)

Heads up on some information[edit]

The administrator who has started Commons:Administrators'_noticeboard/User_problems#File:Japanese_Special_Naval_Landing_Forces_in_Battle_of_Shanghai_1937.jpg (とある白い猫) has stated on IRC in #wikimedia-commons in relation to that discussion:

“I want to stab someone”

This administrator has been very vocal on conduct on IRC -- he claims that saying "bullshit" is harassment, but he obviously doesn't have the same thought of expressing to an open channel that he wishes to stab someone.

I am not getting involved in the nexus of that dispute at AN/U, but neither should this editor/admin. From here on out he should see himself as unnecessarily involved and should no longer use the tools in relation to you, or that file, given his "I want to stab someone" inflammatory commentary. 23:02, 12 August 2015 (UTC)
