Thanks for uploading Image:NGC_6745.jpg. I notice the image page currently doesn't specify who created the content, so the copyright status is unclear. If you have not created this media yourself then you need to argue that we have the right to use the media on Wikimedia Commons (see copyright tagging below).

Category Removal Question[edit]

I'm not sure I understand why you removed the Registered Historic Places in Alabama category from these three images. According to this list (see #30) the Saturn V launch vehicle at the Marshall Space Flight Center is a registered historic site. - Ken_Thomas (talk) 05:07, 12 December 2008 (UTC)

I understand what you're getting at, but according to this article, all National Historic Landmarks are listed in the National Register of Historic Places. You're correct about the upright Saturn V being a replica, and it shouldn't have been categorized under Registered Historic Places in Alabama, but I think the Saturn V that hangs in the Davidson center should be. Thanks. - Ken_Thomas (talk) 15:21, 14 December 2008 (UTC)

Why did you remove my NRHP in Hawaii category from my Alexander&Baldwinbldg.JPG (and perhaps other images as well)? I earlier agreed with other WP Hawaii NRHP project members to Cat all such images of mine as "Buildings in Honolulu, Hawaii" and "NRHP in Hawaii" but I'm finding I have to add Cats back to many of the images I painfully recategorized after being warned to enrich my categories.

Thank you for providing images to Wikimedia Commons. Please keep in mind that images and other files on Commons must be under a free license and should be useful to the Wikimedia projects. To allow others to use your files, some additional information must be given on the description page. Most importantly:

  • Describe what it is about in a short sentence. (What does the image show?)
  • State the author and the date of creation. If you made it yourself, say so explicitly. If it is from another Wikimedia user, link to the person's local user page. Best to use CommonsHelper.
  • If you did not create the file yourself, state the source you got it from.
  • Add a copyright tag - images without an appropriate license tag will be deleted.
  • Add the image to one or more gallery pages and/or appropriate categories, so it can be found by others. To find out where an image belongs, you can use CommonsSense.

If you copied the file from another wiki, please copy all information given there and say who uploaded it to that wiki. Use CommonsHelper.

It is recommended to use Template:Information to put that information on the description page. Have a look at Template talk:Information for details of the use of this template.

You can edit the description page and change the text. Uploading a new version of the file does not change the description of the file.

Please add as much information as possible. If there is not sufficient information, the file may have to be deleted. For more information, follow the Commons:First steps guide. If you need help or have questions, please ask at the Help desk.

Thank you.

Clickable map and text overlapping[edit]

Hello Spyder Monkey! I've been doing some editing of National Register of Historic Places categories, and just finished some work on Category:National Register of Historic Places in South Carolina. In that category, you added a clickable map that links to the various "NRHPs in X County" categories.

The map is a great idea. Unfortunately, it overlaps the list of subcategories on the page, which makes it very hard to read either. Is there a way to reformat things so that the text flows around the map, or so that the map appears above or below the list of subcategories? I don't know anything about this kind of formatting, so I'm afraid that I have to throw the problem in your lap.

Unfortunately, the overlap makes it so hard to read the list of subcategories that, if the problem can't be fixed, I'd be strongly inclined to remove the map. That would be a pity, because it strikes me as a very useful thing; but as it is, we're paying too heavy a price in legibility of the page. Ammodramus (talk) 20:31, 21 January 2012 (UTC)

I don't know if there's a workaround for it. I've posted the question to the village pump to see if anyone else knows of one. Even if a solution isn't found, I think the maps should stay; they're useful if you're not familiar with county names, but are (at least somewhat) familiar with geography. Spyder_Monkey (talk) 05:23, 28 January 2012 (UTC)
I'm afraid I can't begin to understand the technical points involved in this, so I really can't offer any help that way (or even understand much of the answer that you got at the Village Pump). However, I can't agree with you on keeping the map if it can't be moved to avoid obscuring the text. It's making the third column of categories, and many of the county names on the map, almost illegible.
What about creating a fake category like "Clickable map of South Carolina Counties", with no files or subcategories and containing only the map, placed under the category "National Register of Historic Places in South Carolina by county"? If a category with no contents would cause too many problems, perhaps we could stick some random file in it, just to keep it from being auto-deleted or the like. The "NRHP in SC by county" category strikes me as a more logical place to put the map anyway. Ammodramus (talk) 16:08, 30 January 2012 (UTC)
It seems we have an answer. User:Rillke wrapped the map in <div> tags, and that pushes the category contents below it. Also (and I don't know why I didn't try this before), if you put a {{-}} or {{clear}} below the map, you get the same effect (except the map stays aligned right). The question now is, should the map stay on the "National Register of Historic Places in (State)" category, or move to "National Register of Historic Places in (State) by county"? I don't have a strong opinion either way. Spyder_Monkey (talk) 20:56, 31 January 2012 (UTC)
Excellent! My command of HTML and WP markup language is too minimal to have figured these out myself; now I'll have to read the documentation on the various tags and templates and see if I can figure out how to use them in other situations. I'm glad we're going to be able to keep the map, which is definitely an asset—I could have used it these past few days while working with NRHP sites in Iowa and Missouri, both of which have an irritating number of cities that slop across county lines.
I'd weakly favor moving the map to the "NRHP in (state) by county", but I can think of arguments for leaving it on the main "NRHP in (state)" category as well. Moving it means that people who're looking for churches or railway stations or NHLs in (state) won't have to scroll past the map; the by-county category also seems like a more logical place for a by-county map. On the other hand, putting it in the main "NRHP in (state)" category might help relatively new uploaders, by making it more evident that county categories exist and that they shouldn't put their files depicting specific sites in the state category.

Maps of census statistical areas in Georgia (U.S. state)[edit]

Hi. I've noticed your name as author of some of the maps of census statistical areas in Georgia. I just wanted to let you know that I created categories for the 10 other Georgia Metropolitan Areas, there already was one for Atlanta metropolitan area. I noticed some census metro areas do have maps, not sure how to reorganize categories for those maps (remove the county categories and add the specific metro category maybe). If you have any idea, let me know. --Mjrmtg (talk) 19:27, 23 June 2012 (UTC)

I'm not really sure what would go in those categories besides maps. Anything else I can think of would be more intrinsically connected to a smaller area. I think it would be a good idea to keep the maps in their existing categories and just add the metropolitan area category (after all, File:Savannah, Georgia Metropolitan Statistical Area.svg is a map of Chatham County, Georgia).
