Hello, Tony Castle!
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:


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]]

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.

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 information 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.

Usefull categories please!!![edit]

Hi Tony Castle, please keep in mind that only well categorized images can be found by other users. Unfortunately you are categoring very bad. For instance in your File:BAVIERA. Füssen. Cascada del río Lech.jpg not any of the categories works - as the red links show!

I urgently suggest to stop uploading for a while. First read Commons:Categories and learn how to categorize!!! -- Ies (talk) 17:30, 1 December 2010 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Why do you keep on categorizing wrong even after I explained you are wrong? Stop and think! -- Ies (talk) 17:54, 1 December 2010 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Categories on Commons[edit]

Hello Tony!

Thanks for uploading images on Commons. I see that you are quite new here and the categorization system is not the most obvious thing here - but very important.

The basic language on Commons is English. For the beginning: Please use only the correct existing categories. I suggest it would be the best if you put all your photographs of Munich in Category:Munich and photographs of Bavaria in Category:Bavaria. After that you can brows for better categories, or others can do this.

Thanks in advance for helping and uploading.
