Wikimedia Commons has a specific scope
Thank you for your contributions. Your image or other content was recently deleted, or will soon be deleted, in accordance with our process and policies, because it was not, or is not, within our scope. Please review our project scope, but in short, Commons is targeted at media files including photographs, diagrams, animations, music, spoken text and video clips. Wikimedia Commons does not contain text articles like encyclopedia articles, textbooks, news, word definitions and such. Each of these other kinds of content have their own projects: Wikipedia, Wikibooks, Wikisource, Wikinews, Wiktionary and Wikiquote.
If the content seems to fit the scope of one of those other projects, please consider contributing it there. If you think that the deletion was in error because the contribution really was in scope, you can appeal it at Commons:Undeletion requests, giving a reason why it fits our scope to help others evaluate the matter. Thank you for your understanding. Sdrtirs (talk) 20:19, 12 September 2008 (UTC)

I created a new Category:Lisp machine and added the Symbolics images to that, and then put the lisp machine category into Category:Artificial intelligence and Category:History of computing. There are also cats for Category:Magnetic bubble memory and Category:Core memory. There is a handy tool for updating the cat that a file is in. Just go to my preferences and click on Gadgets. The check Hot Cat and save. I also changed the license of your images of the space cadet kbd that I uploaded a while back to add CC. BTW, you may want to create User:Shieldforyoureyes even if it is just a link to your wikipedia user page. --mikeu talk 16:50, 9 November 2008 (UTC)
Computer museums and clubs
Take a look at Category:Gesellschaft für historische Rechenanlagen (München) and Category:Computer History Museum. I've created Category:Retro-Computing Society of Rhode Island and started to add images to it. --mikeu talk 18:53, 9 November 2008 (UTC)
Tip: Categorizing 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.
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]]
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.
