Hello, Thaumaturgist!

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.

Mangoes and categories[edit]

  1. I've created Category:Mangoes from Fruit and Spice Park. Please read Commons:Categories#Creating a new category
  2. Please read COM:OVERCAT. Files in Category:Mango should not also be in Category:Fruit or Category:Tropical fruit, because the Category:Mango is already part of those categories.
  3. I've deleted Category:List of mango cultivars. But don't worry: I've created the gallery List of mango cultivars in Category:Mango. A gallery is far better for such a list.
  4. There are three files with similar file names:
  5. Impressive, all those mangoes. Good work. The article Tommy Atkins at en.wikipedia really needs an image. Don't you have an appropriate photo?

New file name: File:Mango 03Tent Asit fs.jpg

Reminder about categorization[edit]

Hi Thaumaturgist, great photos, but I noticed you've categorized your recently uploaded mango images in too many categories and just want to remind you about the above message: "Please read COM:OVERCAT. Files in Category:Mango should not also be in Category:Fruit or Category:Tropical fruit, because the Category:Mango is already part of those categories.". In addition, Category:Mangifera indica is part of Category:Mango, which means that all images categorized in "Mangifera indica" should not also be in "Mango" — because they are already are by being tagged as "Mangifera indica".

Useful categories, please[edit]

Hi Thaumaturgist, please use useful categories and don't over-categorize your images. For instance in File:FicusAurea04 Asit.jpg you categorized:

I urently suggest to study Commons:Categories before you proceed! -- Ies (talk) 14:07, 8 May 2010 (UTC)

Useful categories, again[edit]

Hi Thaumaturgist, unfortunately you didn't respect Commons:Categories as suggested and even in your lates photo you make the same mistakes again. In File:Bael09 Mounts Asit.JPG you categorized:

Once again I suggest to study and respect Commons:Categories. If you keep on categorizing as hitherto you only provoke needless trouble. Let me know if you need assistance. As long as you don't respond I don't know how to help you. -- Ies (talk) 17:21, 10 May 2010 (UTC)


Thank you for your patience. I have read Commons:Categories few times, as you had suggested, but it does not appear to be clear to me.

I don't understand when you say I didn't categorize Category:Bael fruit. Categories cannot have common English names ? Are they supposed to have the Scientific Names only e.g., Aegle marmelos ? What should be the correct categorization of Bael fruit?

In summary, it looks like I can have only the following 2 Categories, Category:Aegle marmelos Category:Mounts Botanical Garden

Thank you for your help. Thaumaturgist (talk) 02:31, 11 May 2010 (UTC)

Create categories, really[edit]

Hi,

Creating a page that starts with "Category:" and contains nothing but the name of the category is not a category and will not be included in the category structure if it's not part of anything. Please categorize categories in their respective subjects. See an example here. Now the category is part of the Commons categorytree and will show up when browsing the Category:Flora of Madagascar. Also read the messages above carefully and the pages that are linked. Those contain useful information ! –Krinkletalk 14:06, 6 June 2010 (UTC)

Photos of plant labels in USA gardens[edit]

Hi Thaumaturgist - plant labels are copyright works with the copyright owned by the garden that produces them; photos of these labels are derivative works. Unfortunately, the USA does not have Freedom of Panorama, so such photos are covered by the copyright and can't be uploaded on Commons. This would not apply to federally-owned gardens (e.g. US National Arboretum), where labels are public domain, but it does apply to all other gardens (including state-owned). Thanks! - MPF (talk) 13:07, 18 June 2010 (UTC)

en:Tommy Atkins (mango) and en:List of mango cultivars[edit]

Wikipedia is not an image repository (from en:WP:IG). That is the reason why the galleries were removed. But you can create galleries and categories here at Wikimedia Commons. You can use en:Template:Commons and en:Template:CommonsCat to link from Wikipedia. -- Common Good (talk) 21:22, 10 September 2010 (UTC)

Dear Sir,

I hope the image uploaded in this article is your own photo. I wish to know about this image "Mango TommyAtkins02 Asit.jpg" is from where?, Is it from kerala? because the background is very similar to kerala region. Regards
