Advisory on US Military images[edit]

Thank you for your keen contributions in uploading US Military images. Please take a look at the following instructions at uploading US Military files:

  • Make sure to upload the original file of full resolution, instead of uploading the 1000x667 version. You can download the full version by a DVIDS account, which can be registered for free.
  • Please mark the source properly by using Template:ID-USMil. It's format is {{IS-USMil|<VIRIN code>|<branch>|url=<link to DVIDS image page>}}. Regarding the VIRIN code, you may refer to COM:VIRIN. It typically looks like 123456-A-AB123-1234, and can be found in the DVIDS image page, or in the EXIF document of the full resolution file. Template:ID-USMil also specifies how the branch should be filled in. VIRIN is important for Commons as it help us to classify different files.
  • If somebody has uploaded another file with full resolution, please do not tag them with Template:Duplicate, as the template is only applicable for scaled down images. Instead, perhaps you may want to add with further information (such as VIRIN codes) and assist with categorization.
  • Last but not least, please use an appropriate license template. COM:VIRIN provides a comprehensive list of applicable licenses for different branch.
  • Finally, please give an appropriate file name for such files. The VIRIN code itself is not a good file name, and please refer to COM:FN on how to give good file name.
Anyways, please feel free to ask me if you have any questions. It will be great if you can start applying these with your files uploaded. Please feel free to ask me if you have any questions, thank you.廣九直通車 (talk) 12:35, 7 January 2020 (UTC)Reply[reply]
By the way, mark VOA images, screenshots and videos with Template:PD-USGov-VOA, regards, and make sure that these files are entirely made with VOA - VOA is known for using other files from other media, which are copyrighted and unfree.廣九直通車 (talk) 12:35, 7 January 2020 (UTC)Reply[reply]
Ok thank you. I strongly apologize if I was creating an inconvenience for you. I will try to use proper ways to upload DVIDS images from now on. --RopeTricks (talk) 23:47, 7 January 2020 (UTC)Reply[reply]


I am sorry for saying that your contributions as a "mess", but it is definitely tiring to re-upload all images with full resolution using a mobile phone. I feel sorry for my aggressive and rude approach.廣九直通車 (talk) 03:08, 8 January 2020 (UTC)Reply[reply]

No problem, mate. --RopeTricks (talk) 03:39, 8 January 2020 (UTC)Reply[reply]
