Hello, Smurfy!
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").

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.

South Sudan[edit]

You have done a good job adding South Sudan to various maps. Keep up the good work! Hoshie (talk) 12:04, 29 July 2011 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Tripoli map[edit]

Regarding your latest edits to the Tripoli map: - The Rixos hotel is still under loyalist control. I would leave the loyalist regions south of Bab Al Aziziya as they are.

- On the other hand, the port region seems to be entirely under rebel control - there hasn't been any news from it, but newspaper maps are now showing it as captured (ex: [1] and [2])

So hope you can fix these two things Seleucus (talk) 16:42, 23 August 2011 (UTC)Reply[reply]

I've done my best but I'm not brilliant with Inkscape Smurfy (talk) 16:58, 23 August 2011 (UTC)Reply[reply]
OK, thanks; it looks fine now! Lack of brilliance is far better than lack of any ability whatsoever (as in me :) Seleucus (talk) 16:59, 23 August 2011 (UTC)Reply[reply]

File:Map of state religions.svg requires updating[edit]

Hi Smurfy,
Thank you for your contributions to Commons. I noticed File:Map of state religions.svg is out of date. Could you update it? Thanks again.

The problem is, that Argentina does not have a state religion. According to Section 2 of the Constitution of Argentina,"The Federal Government supports the Roman Catholic Apostolic religion"; but the Constitution of Argentina does not stipulate an official state religion, nor a separation of church and state. Could you remove Argentina? Thanks. Maphobbyist (talk) 14:13, 13 February 2012 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Ugh, I made that SVG before I knew what I was doing and it's horribly formatted. I'd recreate but I can't work out how to get England back as an individual country
Anyway, I corrected it and added South Sudan too Smurfy (talk) 16:45, 13 February 2012 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Hi smurfy Zambia is officially a Christian nation according to the 1996 constitution. could you add that into the map and I am just wondering Armenia should be on this map as well. thanks. QubecMan (talk) 07:36, 27 July 2018 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Game picture.[edit]

Hi, could you tell us the location of the photograph of a GAME shop you recently uploaded? Cheers, Mtaylor848 (talk) 16:44, 3 April 2012 (UTC)Reply[reply]

The photo is already geotagged. It was taken in Macclesfield, Cheshire. Smurfy (talk) 23:40, 18 April 2012 (UTC)Reply[reply]

File:CountriesRecognizingSouthSudan.svg[edit]

Hi Smurfy, please, could you tell me on the basis of what (empty?) maps, you started this map? Also I make maps, this your is very good, has more detailed graphics (more islets), and also has the borders of States with limited recognition. None of the blank map I found on Commons, similar to that of your. Have you made it completely alone without any other maps from Commons? Thank you so much.
