  • Put Babel boxes on your user page so others know what languages you can speak and indicate your graphic abilities.
  • All your uploads are stored in your personal gallery
  • Please sign your name on Talk pages by typing ~~~~
  • Use the CommonSense tool to find good categories for your files (then other people can find them too!)
  • To link to an image page without embedding the image, type: [[:Image:Foo.jpg]], which produces: Image:Foo.jpg
  • If you're copying files from another project, be sure to use the CommonsHelper
Nuvola filesystems trashcan full.png Made a mistake?
  • Did you want to rename or move a file? Simply upload the file again and mark the old one like this: {{bad name|correct name}}

Tip: Categorizing images[edit]

Hello, Shinerunner!

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.

Category:Aircraft damaged in combat[edit]

Hi, I noticed this category you created, Category:Aircraft damaged in combat ; and it is empty. I am sorry if you already know about this, bu let me explain a bit more about categories. For categories to work properly, you have to put the tag [[Category:Aircraft damaged in combat]] on every picture you want to categorise. Pictures then automatically appear on the category page, sorted alphabetically.

You in fact used this category as a Gallery (which are perfectly fine in their own right). I just created this galley, Aircrafts damaged in combat, just by copy/paste from the category.

Feel free to contact me if you have any question.

Sincerly, Jean-Frédéric (talk) 21:54, 23 June 2009 (UTC)

No problem. I just categorised all the files which were displayed on the gallery. By the way, you may want to activate HotCat in your personal preferences : it is very useful.
It also occurred to me that your category might be redundant with Category:Aircraft accidents, Category:Aircraft damage or Category:Destroyed aircraft. As I am not really knowledgeable on this subject, I let you judge of this.
Cheers, Jean-Frédéric (talk) 16:11, 25 June 2009 (UTC)

Thanks![edit]

I just wanted to thank you for straightening out the categories for the images I transferred. Next time I'll be more alert for the difference between a National Historic Landmark and the National Register of Historic Places. Shinerunner (talk) 09:48, 29 October 2009 (UTC)

Over-categorization.svg
Start hand.svg
When categorising files, please avoid placing them into several categories that are directly linked within the same tree (e.g. a parent category and a child category – like Category:United Kingdom and Category:London), to prevent over-categorization of files and over-population of categories. Usually, only the most specific category should be used. See Commons:Categories for more details. Thank you.

File:Old Sonic Menu.jpg[edit]

Commons-emblem-issue.svg File:Old Sonic Menu.jpg has been listed at Commons:Deletion requests so that the community can discuss whether it should be kept or not. We would appreciate it if you could go to voice your opinion about this at its entry.

If you created this file, please note that the fact that it has been proposed for deletion does not necessarily mean that we do not value your kind contribution. It simply means that one person believes that there is some specific problem with it, such as a copyright issue.
Please remember to respond to and – if appropriate – contradict the arguments supporting deletion. Arguments which focus on the nominator will not affect the result of the nomination. Thank you!
