Thank you for providing images to the Wikimedia Commons. Please keep in mind that images uploaded to the Commons should be useful to all users of Wikimedia projects. This is possible only if the images can be found by other people.

To allow others to find the images you uploaded here, the images should be in some place that can be found by navigating the category structure. This means that you should put the images into appropriate category and optionally place the images on topic pages (galleries), or do both (see Commons:Categories). To find good categories for your images, the CommonSense tool may help.

You can find a convenient overview of your uploaded files in this gallery.

The important point is that the images should be placed in the general structure somewhere. There are a large number of completely unsorted images on the Commons right now. If you would like to help to place some of those images where they can be found, please do!

Thank you. Lcarsdata 18:06, 13 February 2007 (UTC)

Thanks for uploading Image:Farquhar_Group.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). If you have not created the media yourself then you should also specify where you found it, i.e., in most cases link to the website where you got it, and the terms of use for content from that page. If the content is a derivative of a copyrighted work, you need to supply the names and a licence of the original authors as well.

If the media also doesn't have a copyright tag, then you must also add one. If you created/took the picture, audio, or video then you can use {{self|GFDL|cc-by-sa-all}} to release it under the multilicense GFDL plus Creative Commons Attribution-ShareAlike All-version license or {{PD-self}} to release it into the public domain. See Commons:Copyright tags for the full list of copyright tags that you can use.

Note that any unsourced and untagged images will be deleted one week after they have been uploaded, as described on criteria for speedy deletion. If you have uploaded other media, please check that you have specified their source and copyright tagged them, too. You can find all your uploads using the Gallery tool. Thank you.

There seems to be a problem regarding the description and/or licensing of this particular file. It has been found that you've added in the image's description only a Template that's not a license and although it provides useful informations about the image, it's not a valid license. Could you please resolve this problem, adding the license in the image linked above? 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. This page may give you more hints on which license to choose. Thank you.

astronaut images[edit]

I don't think it is really necessary to change the Author from NASA -> "unknown astronaut". The reason being that all those images are owned by NASA regardless of who the photographer was. If we do know the photographer, it's often nice to add that to the author field as well, but to change all the descriptions to "unknown astronaut" seems a little pointless to me. TheDJ (talk) 15:39, 18 June 2008 (UTC)

Also, I think it is better if the "astronaut photography" category is part of the article, and not of the template. The reason being that the only thing the template really should address is the "copyright status" and the categorization of that. Sourcing, subject categorization or all those other things should not really be part of the copyright tag. As a matter of fact, the {{AstronautPhoto}} template is somewhat broken actually. I'll see if I can make some fixes to it. TheDJ (talk) 15:42, 18 June 2008 (UTC)
Ooops, it wasn't my intention to change all the NASAs into "unknown astronaut", I did this just while changing the descritption for other reasons. But OK, NASA is sufficient and I will keep it as it is. Regarding the category you're right. This should be rather done in the image than in the license. I guess this would be a good job for a bot... --Telim tor (talk) 05:32, 19 June 2008 (UTC)


you have edited categories of antarctic images by removing cats which belong to an image. please do not recat images without any knowledge about its content. thank you Hannes Grobe (talk) 09:54, 4 July 2008 (UTC)

I wanted to avaoid double and over categorization, please refer to section "Over-categorization" in Commons:Categories#For more appropriate categorization: The category Category:Dallmann laboratory is already assigned to Category:Alfred Wegener Institute for Polar and Marine Research. This means that the pictures inside Category:Dallmann laboratory should not have also Category:Alfred Wegener Institute for Polar and Marine Research, because otherwise they have this category twice! --Telim tor (talk) 11:01, 4 July 2008 (UTC)


Hello Telim tor - thanks for helping sort images. However, please do not sort images like Image:Waiheke Island Seen From Above West.jpg into an islands category when the image is already sorted to a specific island's category which in turn is sorted in the more generic "islands of" category. As per Commons rules, only the most specific categorisations apply. Cheers and happy editing Ingolfson (talk) 10:58, 15 July 2008 (UTC)

Mmmh, from your other edits, it seems you already knew this. You probably just made a little mistake. No worries. Cheers Ingolfson (talk) 11:01, 15 July 2008 (UTC)
Hi, thanks for your remark. You're absolutely right. Currently, I'm categorizing and sorting thousands of islands. Thus, sometimes I and do not recognize the most specific category or make other mistakes... Cheers! --Telim tor (talk) 11:04, 15 July 2008 (UTC)


Hello Telim tor, why did you redirect Kalimantan category to Borneo? Kalimantan is only part of Borneo, and at the same time specific to Indonesia. We should make a distinction between the two, Djoehana (talk) 22:53, 19 July 2008 (UTC)

Hello Djoehana. Because it was catrgorized as "Island", but the name of the island on commons is Borneo. If Kalimanatan is only the indonesian part of that island then we should undo the redirect, but categorize it as region or province or other subdivision of Indonesia. Maybe you know better what Kalimantan exactly is. Regards, --Telim tor (talk) 07:20, 20 July 2008 (UTC)

Mehetia[edit] Are you sure about that? In that case, the image should be renamed. {{rename}} TheDJ (talk) 13:14, 21 July 2008 (UTC)

Yes, the image does definitely not show Mehetia but Maiao. Also image:Maiao.JPG does not show Maiao but Motu One. I will of course trigger a renaming of both files soon. --Telim tor (talk) 13:29, 21 July 2008 (UTC)

Category:Gulfs of Greece[edit]

Hi, why did you remove this cat from Category:Gulfs of the Mediterranean Sea? Aren't all the Greek gulfs in that Sea? --Eusebius (talk) 06:27, 11 September 2008 (UTC)

I did it in the same way as the Italian gulfs are categorized. But you're right, all Greek gulfs are in the Mediterranean Sea. So feel free to revert my edit. I'll adapt it for the Italians later. --Telim tor (talk) 06:49, 11 September 2008 (UTC)
OK, I'll revert it then, I think it is more logical that way. --Eusebius (talk) 07:31, 11 September 2008 (UTC)

Eine Frage[edit]

Salut Telim tor,
Eine Frage, no more ;D
Are you sure that image:Kara sea2KP.PNG (for example) with a so explicit file name doesn't belong [1] to Category:Kara Sea ?
Gruß, Alvaro (talk) 12:53, 23 September 2008 (UTC)

Salut Alvaro,
this is a strange case, because a map of the Kara Sea was used as template for this locator map and Kara Sea of course is the center of the map as well as in the file name. But the red marked islands, which are located by this map, are lying in the Laptev Sea. So to avoid misunderstandings, I would not set Kara Sea as category. Nevertheless, if you feel that it's OK, please set the cat again. No problem. You may also think about cat Category:Kara Sea maps which is a bit more precise. Regards, --Telim tor (talk) 13:01, 23 September 2008 (UTC)
Ah, ok, ich verstehe much better now. Hmmm... 2 POVs are correct ;D es war nur eine Frage, danke fûr deine Antwort. I won't work on cats, here, too small problem and too much work. Gruß, Alvaro (talk) 14:07, 26 September 2008 (UTC)

Malvinas images not from the Falklands[edit]

I will revert your edits, because although these images were not taken on the Falklands, they are clearly related to them. Regards --ALE! ¿…? 09:17, 19 November 2008 (UTC)

It's OK to me. Regards --Telim tor (talk) 13:02, 19 November 2008 (UTC)

Norwegian municipalities cat[edit]

Thanks for fixing categories, appreciated. Be aware however that for images like this file:Trolig Flakstad krk.JPG the category:Flakstad is not just a geographical category but also administrative, meaning that category:Flakstadøy should be in addition to instead of replacing, see my last edit for reference. Keep up the good work, Finn Rindahl (talk) 14:48, 17 February 2009 (UTC)

Thanks for your remark, you're right. I was wondering whether categories belonging to the islands and categories belonging to the communities can be combined in any way. But since some communties cover more than one island and on the other hand some communites belong to parts of islands only, I guess the best is having both categories in parallel. Regards, --Telim tor (talk) 14:54, 17 February 2009 (UTC)

Greetings & Thanks[edit]

Moin Telim tor,

I have noticed that you had to do some work with pictures I've uploaded. Sorry for that, but that category-thing is tricky. I'm just reading the whole german wp-category of uninhabited islands (fascinating!) and where I find a picture/category that might fit to an article, I add it. Therefor I'm using the commonshelper and I usually take the categories as it recommends. Hope this provides more profit then work, in the end.

Thanks for all your work on the islands here and in wp:de! Schönen Jrooß, --Jonesey (talk) 15:28, 22 February 2009 (UTC)

Hallo Jonesey,
Vielen Dank. Of course it is sometimes a laborious work, especially since islands are categorized differently in and commons (which are similar to the However, uninhabited islands can be categorized in the same way. Please feel free to do needful changes or adds or ask in case of upcoming questions. Schöne Grüße, --Telim tor (talk) 15:41, 22 February 2009 (UTC)


In this edit you accidentally killed the license. I've restored it. - Jmabel ! talk 05:06, 11 September 2009 (UTC)

OK, thanks --Telim tor (talk) 10:21, 12 September 2009 (UTC)

thanks re. samoa photos[edit]

thanks for the tips - i was so confused about the categories. so glad you set up those two new categories too. fanx!Teinesavaii (talk) 09:51, 1 October 2009 (UTC)

always welcome --Telim tor (talk) 09:55, 1 October 2009 (UTC)
    • A couple of requests please 1) I'm getting this message in red when i check usage on each photo - A database error has occurred Query: SELECT * FROM itwikiquote_p.image WHERE img_name = 'Samoa_scenic_coastline_with_palm_trees_foreground_1.JPG' Function: getImageInfo Error: 1146 Table 'itwikiquote_p.image' doesn't exist (sql-s3) you know what this means, please? it says it doesn't exist.

2) Can you please DELETE this photo for me? File:Savaii Scenery 1, Lelepa to Fagamalo, Savaii, Samoa, Polynesia.JPG

It's on old badly named photo. I've uploaded the same photo with a new name - so there's two. I've tried deleting it 5 times the other day, and it didn't work. many thanks Teinesavaii (talk) 10:02, 1 October 2009 (UTC)

I made the response on your page. --Telim tor (talk) 10:55, 1 October 2009 (UTC)
thank you for the help. much appreciated. Teinesavaii (talk) 13:34, 2 October 2009 (UTC)


Hi Telim tor - My preference would have been for categorisation along the lines of that for Shetland, ie the main cat would have been named Orkney (and not Orkney Islands), which means you could then have used Orkney Islands in which to categorise the actual islands - my solution was not ideal but was a way to get around this. For islands in the Orkney Islands group, but not in the Unitary authority, I would still include them under the Orkney Islands (with an explanatory note), but also add them to the relevant authority or county category as well. Hope this is helpful. best wishes. Ardfern (talk) 15:32, 14 November 2009 (UTC)

Hi Ardfern. Yes, it's a good approach having the Orkneys categorized similar to the Shetlands. As soon as I can spend more time on wiki time I will (try to) adapt the Orkneys... Many thanks. --Telim tor (talk) 15:59, 14 November 2009 (UTC)


...Bearbeitungen von dir sind sehr gut, aber das Hinzufügen von Dienstgraden (Bsp.: "Lieutenant" zu "Philip Hall, NOAA Corps") wird von einigen Benutzern auf Commons als überflüssig empfunden. Daher kann dies auch bei PD-USGov-xy vernachlässigt werden. Gruß und weiterhin viel Spaß beim Editieren. --High Contrast (talk) 11:47, 22 October 2010 (UTC)

OK, Danke für die Info. Gruß, --Telim tor (talk) 12:17, 22 October 2010 (UTC)


Hallo Telim tor,

Category:Islands of Lofoten entspricht einen Archipel, das teils in dem Provinz Nordland, teils i Troms liegt. Deshalb sind die kategorien Category:Islands of Nordland und Category:Islands of Troms keine ausreichende Überkategorien - ohne diese Kategorien fehlt die Information der Provinzzugehörigkeit. Mfg BjørnN (talk) 09:17, 18 November 2010 (UTC)

Hallo BjørnN
hmm, also gemäß befinden sich alle Inseln der Lofoten im Fylke Nordland (die Vesterålen liegen teils in Troms). Damit wäre die Category:Islands of Lofoten korrekt unter Category:Islands of Nordland kategorisiert. Das macht diese Kat in den Artikeln, die bereits Category:Islands of Lofoten haben, allerdings obsolet; daher hatte ich die Kat entfernt. Viele Grüße, --Telim tor (talk) 09:43, 18 November 2010 (UTC)
Sorry, Du hast offenbar Recht. Allerdings wird im Artikel über Hinnøya darauf hingewiesen daß ein Teil von Hinnøya (Anteil der gemeinde Vågan) zu Lofoten gehört, diesen Artikel ist somit in Widerspruch zum Artikel über Lofoten, dort werden nur ganze Inseln aufgezählt. MfG BjørnN (talk) 10:49, 18 November 2010 (UTC)
Klingt seltsam, aber Hinnøya gehört sowohl zu den Lofoten alsauch zu den Vesterålen. Ween das im Artikel über die Lofoten so nicht rüberkommt, dann werde ich es dort ändern. Grüße, --Telim tor (talk) 10:57, 18 November 2010 (UTC)
