Hello, Smartse!

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").

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.

re Mass OTRS permission[edit]

Yes, that should be okay, so long as the wording is specific. Commons:OTRS should be helpful with that. Cirt (talk) 19:26, 10 June 2009 (UTC)

If that one ticket specifically has wording from the copyright holder for those images, then yes. Cirt (talk) 19:29, 10 June 2009 (UTC)
You are welcome. Cirt (talk) 19:32, 10 June 2009 (UTC)

Osama bin Laden photo[edit]

Obviously I know that, but files must be deleted. accepts fair use content, but I can't upload it (I'm in Italy). On and fair use is not allowed, so unfortunately articles will remain without images. Cheers--Trixt (talk) 18:58, 10 August 2009 (UTC)

File:Ammophila confocal.jpg may be deleted[edit]

català | čeština | Deutsch | English | español | suomi | français | magyar | 日本語 | македонски | Nederlands | português | português do Brasil | русский | slovenščina | +/−
The Ammophila confocal.jpg which you uploaded has been tagged {{OTRS pending}} for more than 30 days. This tag indicates that an email setting out permission to use the file was sent to the OTRS team. Unfortunately, we cannot find any record that such an email has been received, and accordingly the file remains without permission. Unless the OTRS team receives evidence that permission has been granted within 15 days of today's date, the file will be deleted. If you have already sent the permission, please re-send it to "" now. Please quote the file name in your email. At the same time, please leave a message at the OTRS noticeboard so that a volunteer can follow this up. Alternatively, you can contact an OTRS volunteer directly.

I've converted your speedy into DR, because this requires some discussion due to the heavy external use of the image. Túrelio (talk) 09:24, 18 May 2011 (UTC)

Hi Smartse, did you already notify all non-WMF re-users of File:Electrolux addisoni ventral.jpg? --Túrelio (talk) 21:37, 20 May 2011 (UTC)

No sorry, not yet. I'm busy and have a rubbish internet connection. I'll get on to it now, there only seems to be one. Thanks for the reminder! Smartse (talk) 16:09, 21 May 2011 (UTC)


Why did you mark File:Gaza rocket November 2012.PNG for deletion? If you click on the source link, click "show more" in the description section under the video, you can see that it clearly says: "License:Creative Commons Attribution license (reuse allowed)" --Futuretrillionaire (talk) 00:04, 19 November 2012 (UTC)

Ozone cycle illustration[edit]

Hi! I think there is a mistake in the text of your graphic content at Ozone layer

Current: "Ozone and oxygen atoms are continuously being interconverted..."

Recommended: Ozone and oxygen molecules are continuously being interconverted...

Ozone mulecules contain exclusively oxygen atoms.--Greenunit (talk) 09:29, 24 October 2016 (UTC)

Hi Greenunit. I just converted File:Ozone_cycle.jpg to .svg when I made the image so the text is as in the original created by NASA. I agree though that molecules is more accurate since O2 is also a molecule. I'll see if I can edit the file accordingly. Smartse (talk) 09:45, 24 October 2016 (UTC)

Could you ....[edit]

check your crop of Oren laurent.jpg. I can't see what you did wrong, but the photo doesn't look right in the article or at the top of the file page. It does look right in the version box. Thanks for any help. Smallbones (talk) 17:55, 12 January 2017 (UTC)
