Tip: Categorizing images
Hello, Simon Burchell!
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.

Hello. I just wanted to let you know that I have granted autopatrol rights to your account; the reason for this is that I believe you are sufficiently trustworthy and experienced to have your contributions automatically sighted. This will have no effect on your editing, and is simply intended to help users watching Recent changes or Recent uploads to find unproductive edits amidst the productive ones. Thank you.

I just realized that the move of that monument head file was a minor mistake on my part. According to Commons:File renaming#Which files should not be renamed? (3), the conflicting file on the local wiki should be renamed and not the one here. I guess we just learned something together. ;) INeverCry 23:23, 5 May 2012 (UTC)
- Oops. Obvious when you think about it really. Thanks for the move anyway. Best regards, Simon Burchell (talk) 23:29, 5 May 2012 (UTC)

Image Permissions Inquiry
I am working on behalf of a non-profit museum in Atlanta, Georgia in the U.S. called The CENTER for PUPPETRY ARTS. We are interested in acquiring the license rights to your image at this link:
https://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/User:Simon_Burchell#/media/File:Bilbao_1.jpg . The image will be used in an exhibition on permanent display for their global wing highlighting the history and celebration of the art of puppetry worldwide.
I wanted to confirm if this use comes under the creative commons license or do we need to license the image directly from you.We would also require the largest file size you have available. If you can get back to me via email firstname.lastname@example.org how best to move forward I would appreciate it.
I look forward to hearing from you soon.
My very best,
Tara Farrell Clearance Supervisor
