Thank you for uploading images on Commons.

Please add your images to appropriative pages and/or categories where other users could easily find them. For example to Category:Poland (or find more relevant one).

Thank you! I updated some of my photos today. --ProfessorX 09:32, 12 March 2006 (UTC)

Hello, ProfessorX!

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.

BotMultichillT 06:21, 27 March 2009 (UTC)

Yes I know that pictures should have categories (thank you!). I always try to find a suitable one. In this case I provided the category: „Hydrodynamics“, but somehow this category disappeared within the uploading procedure - and I didn't notice it. Now it has this category again!--ProfessorX (talk) 18:33, 27 March 2009 (UTC)

Category:Buttress dams[edit]

Hi. This above is, without doubt, not a type of dam. Just a mere architecture style. People sometimes confuse the difference between style and type. Either way, we cannot put up wrong facts. Rehman 01:09, 13 November 2010 (UTC)

Do you agree that a buttress dam is a dam? Or some kind of dam or some sort of dam? So it might be possible to put “buttress dams” into “Category:Dams”. --ProfessorX (talk) 17:48, 13 November 2010 (UTC)
Well, "do you agree that a buttress dam is a dam" is a silly question, its same as asking something like "do you think a carved door is a door"; or course it is, its just carved. For now I think Category:Dams would do. Rehman 01:08, 14 November 2010 (UTC)
Thank you very much for your agreement.--ProfessorX (talk) 07:59, 14 November 2010 (UTC)
No problem. Rehman 09:36, 14 November 2010 (UTC)
Did you know that "type" is just another word for "sort of"?--ProfessorX (talk) 21:49, 15 November 2010 (UTC)

Another user changed Category:buttress dams to Dams by type in April. I think it´s OK.--ProfessorX (talk) 13:58, 22 May 2011 (UTC)

dohnaische straße vs markt[edit]

Hallo professorx, ich zweifel grad an mir, bin eigentlcih vollkommen sicher, dass cih File:Relief pirna dohnaischestraße.jpg das bild in der dohnaischen staße aufgenommen zu haben, du hast koordinaten gesetzt. hast du es wirklcih da gesehen? gruß --Z thomas 17:16, 5 February 2012 (UTC)

Nein, es ist wirklich am Markt, geh nochmal hin! Und siehe auch dieses Bild von Norbert:
Pirna Markt-16 Hausmarke (02).jpg
, es ist dasselbe Relief.Gruß ProfessorX (talk) 17:22, 5 February 2012 (UTC)
tatsächlich :-) es ist am markt! ich war heut da --Z thomas 18:35, 6 April 2012 (UTC)
dann könnten wir jetzt noch überlegen, die Datei umzubenennen, weil der Name ja nun irreführend ist. Muss aber nicht sein, geht ja auch so.--ProfessorX (talk) 19:15, 23 April 2012 (UTC)
ich hab sie mal verschoben. gruß --Z thomas 09:36, 24 April 2012 (UTC)

This media may be deleted.
Thanks for uploading File:Walsburg (Unterbecken).jpg. I notice that the file page either doesn't contain enough information about the license or it contains contradictory information about the license, so the copyright status is unclear.

If you created this file yourself, then you must provide a valid copyright tag. For example, you can tag it with {{self|GFDL|cc-by-sa-all}} to release it under the multi-license GFDL plus Creative Commons Attribution-ShareAlike All-version license or you can tag it with {{PD-self}} to release it into the public domain. (See Commons:Copyright tags for the full list of license tags that you can use.)

If you did not create the file yourself or if it is a derivative of another work that is possibly subject to copyright protection, then you must specify where you found it (e.g. usually a link to the web page where you got it), you must provide proof that it has a license that is acceptable for Commons (e.g. usually a link to the terms of use for content from that page), and you must add an appropriate license tag. If you did not create the file yourself and the specific source and license information is not available on the web, you must obtain permission through the OTRS system and follow the procedure described there.

Note that any unsourced or improperly licensed files will be deleted one week after they have been marked as lacking proper information, as described in criteria for speedy deletion. If you have uploaded other files, please confirm that you have provided the proper information for those files, too. If you have any questions about licenses please ask at Commons:Village pump/Copyright or see our help pages. Thank you.

And also:

No required license templates were detected at this file page. Please correct it, or if you have any questions please contact me on my talk page. Yours sincerely, Jarekt (talk) 19:33, 7 January 2014 (UTC)

Thank you for your information. I corrected the license information yesterday. The error happened somehow during the upload procedure.--ProfessorX (talk) 18:23, 9 January 2014 (UTC)

Misplaced photos[edit]

Congratulations to your photos of all the dams and reservoirs in the Ore Mountains. However, it seems to me that two of those to the Janov dam are misplaced. They show the Janov dam but appear at the Kamenicka dam. Sincerely. --HsBerlin01 (talk) 08:39, 9 November 2014 (UTC)

Thank you. Can you give me a link to the photos which you mean so that I can find them?--ProfessorX (talk) 18:24, 9 November 2014 (UTC)
I mean these two photos Janov-Most013.jpg and Janov-Most022.jpg. Sincerely. --HsBerlin01 (talk) 22:24, 17 November 2014 (UTC)
These two photographs show Janov dam, and they're in Category:Janov Dam. Now I found out: location parameters were wrong! I changed them already.--ProfessorX (talk) 17:55, 18 November 2014 (UTC)
This is what I meant with "misplaced" (yes, my English could be better). Sincerely --HsBerlin01 (talk) 08:52, 19 November 2014 (UTC)

Uploads by User:Badarchiinayurzana[edit]

Hi! I noticed that you edited the file descriptions of several of this user's uploads, correctly noting that they were not the uploader's own work as he or she had claimed, but were in fact grabbed from various online sources. If you come across such cases in the future, could I please ask that you let someone know about it, either on the Administrators' noticeboard or by adding a {{copyvio}} tag to the file description? People uploading random non-free content they found on the Internet to Commons is a huge problem for the project and its users, and the faster we can remove them, the better. Just adding a few subtle links on the file descriptions and a comment in the edit summary normally won't draw the attention of anyone who can do anything about it. Danke schön! LX (talk, contribs) 10:04, 7 February 2015 (UTC)

Thank you for your advice, I will do this next time.--ProfessorX (talk) 20:02, 7 February 2015 (UTC)

Talsperre[edit]

Hallo, meinst du es wär sinnvoll, das mit Dams und Reservoirs doch auch für Deutschland irgendwie aufzulösen? Dann könnten Kategorien wie Category:Möhne Reservoir dam, die wirklich nur das Sperrmauer-Bauwerk meinen, vielleicht noch besser einsortiert werden. Holger1959 (talk) 16:56, 12 February 2015 (UTC)

Es gab vor nicht allzu langer Zeit beide Kategorien (Dams in Germany und Reservoirs in Germany), beide enthielten Talsperren und Stauseen bunt durcheinander. Dann wurden sie in einer einzigen Kategorie gemischt - das war auch konsequent, finde ich. Es gibt auch ausführliche Diskussionen in der deutschen Wikipedia zu einen ähnlichen Thema (de:Diskussion:Talsperre#Stauanlage) - aber ohne Ergebnis. Hier in Commons wäre es wohl auch schwierig, einen Konsens zu finden.--ProfessorX (talk) 20:33, 12 February 2015 (UTC)
ok, das Thema scheint doch größer zu sein, dann sag ich lieber nichts mehr. Da kann man sich ja Wochen mit beschäftigen ;) Holger1959 (talk) 12:20, 13 February 2015 (UTC)

File(s) appeared in Category:Pages using Information template with incorrect parameter[edit]

Hello ProfessorX, it seems that your latest changes or uploads of the file(s) Rhodes and Africa from Cairo to Cape Town.jpg broke a template. This assumption has been made because the file(s) appeared in the maintenance Category:Pages using Information template with incorrect parameter. To fix this issue please check this category for further information. If the file(s) is/are not contained in the maintenance category anymore someone else already did the work and you can ignore this message. Thank you for your cooperation. --ArndBot (talk) 19:21, 11 February 2016 (UTC)

Takeaway (talk) 11:38, 9 May 2016 (UTC)

I had a look at the 9 (1 was added yesterday) files in that category and they were only categorised in there and nowhere else which, of course, is not supposed to be as the category doesn't actually say much about the files at all other than stating a personal view of the uploader/editor. I recategorised the files to their correct categories and the subjective category is now empty. - Takeaway (talk) 12:45, 11 May 2016 (UTC)
there are 6 more entries per today, look at that! (some people like that category so much)--ProfessorX (talk) 14:04, 16 May 2016 (UTC)
