Re: Bot CommonsDelinker[edit]

It should remove images from galleries. Do you have a specific example of an image that was not removed in galleries but was in articles? -- Bryan (talk to me) 08:48, 3 July 2008 (UTC)

Yes, just a few of the last ones, which were not changed in to:Ngaahi ʻata ʻo e ʻakau Tonga.

Image:‘Uluvalu.jpg[edit]

You uploaded Image:‘Uluvalu.jpg, a picture of Tuʻipelehake (ʻUluvalu), and said it's from Taimi ʻo Tonga, the Tonga Times, a local newspaper. You claimed it was public domain. Generally, photos from newspapers are not in the public domain. Would you clarify this, by adding to the image description page why you believe the image is in the public domain? I've tagged it as lacking license information, so please make the corrections within a week. 75.213.238.122 (really, w:en:User:JesseW/not logged in) 00:14, 6 August 2008 (UTC)

Image:Ecliptic path.jpg[edit]

In the permissions field you have written ‘public domain’, however the other text as well as the license template seem to indicate that it isn't. The current text could be interpreted as saying that the image is also in the public domain, for those who do not wish do credit you for example. Please review the image description page to verify that this is what you want, and if it isn't, change it accordingly. I personally consider it ‘safest’ to just stick to the built-in license tags.

The graduations in years shows a +14000 instead of -12000.

It is left as an exercise to the student to contemplate why the former is better. Tauʻolunga (talk) 05:47, 9 August 2009 (UTC)

Hello, Tauʻolunga!

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.

Image use[edit]

Hi Tau'olunga

We are writing a book on spices and herbs.

The title is “Krydderleksikon med urter og smakstilsetninger” (Encyclopedia of spices and herbs). Print run is 5000 copies and the book will be published in May this year. It will be illustrated with photos of all the plants.

Most of the photos are already provided for but we still miss some picture.

We have found your photo of Pimenta dioica flowers on the Internet and we wonder if you kindly will let us use the photo in our book.
