Image:723squadron Augusta recovery.jpg[edit]

Wow, that's a great photo! Nick Dowling (talk) 05:01, 2 November 2008 (UTC)


It was indeed another ship than the nice replica of 1994. Hope we can find the year of completion of the old one. By the way, did you realise that the Category:Tall ships of Australia is already caregorised as Category:Sailing ships of Australia ? --Stunteltje (talk) 05:47, 8 July 2011 (UTC)

No idea to the first. No I didn't to the second -- saberwyn 06:27, 8 July 2011 (UTC)

Hello, Saberwyn!

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.

Ships by name[edit]

Please realise that ships on Commons are categorised so, that any unexperienced user can find them. Pennant numbers are painted on the ships, most names of naval ships only on relative small nameplates, hardly to find on images. That is the reason why more and more ships are categorised: pennant number - name - ship or tugboat - year of completion (or first commissioning) - in some cases the place of built (when name and year are the same). To find with Category:Ships by pennant number Better example: Category:Fishing vessels by license number --Stunteltje (talk) 08:44, 6 May 2012 (UTC)

Your Copyvio on File:Tongan police and military. Solomon Islands 2003. Photo- © Gary Ramage, Australian Defence (10730388313).jpg[edit]

Hi, you raised a Copyvio on several of this files. I think, since they are official release under free license on their official page, you have to come with more evidence than just a doubt. Ask them about the files and raise a deletion request if you have the answer from them or the photographer. I removed the Copyvio notice on all the images.

Best regards --Neozoon (talk) 22:52, 16 July 2014 (UTC)

@Neozoon: I've had a look at the copyright statement on the DFAT website, which says "With the exception of the Commonwealth Coat of Arms and where otherwise noted, all material presented on this website is provided under a Creative Commons Attribution 3.0 Australia licence." (emphasis mine). Similar copyright statements can be found in works like the DFAT Australian Safeguards and Non-Proliferation Office (ASNO) 2012-2013 annual report and this Feeding The Future report: "With the exception of the Commonwealth Coat of Arms and where otherwise noted (including photographs protected by copyright), this report is licensed under a Creative Commons Attribution 3.0 Australia licence" (emphasis again mine). I would assume that this is how DFAT applies the creative commons licence across all its works. The photos all clearly state in their title/caption that the work is the copyrighted product of an employee of a different government body, which to me means that the images are under full copyright, and what happened here is an unintentional instance of flickr washing. Any thoughts or advice? -- saberwyn 11:00, 17 July 2014 (UTC)
@Saberwyn: thanks for bringing this to my attention. I have started a DR for the images, and have also contacted the Aussie DoD for permission. @Neozoon: thanks for acting on these images, but in this case Saberwyn did have a point, although such images should be handled by way of COM:DR.
