Tip: Categorizing images[edit]

Hello, Utcursch!

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").

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.

Filemove error[edit]

Hi Utcursch. There was an error in moving File:Etobicoke Creek Trail bridge at Centennial Park.JPG. I've asked Rillke to take a look at it. INeverCry 02:30, 16 October 2012 (UTC)

Never mind, it's been fixed. INeverCry 06:26, 16 October 2012 (UTC)
Thanks! Utcursch (talk) 20:04, 16 October 2012 (UTC)

Copywriters[edit]

Why did you add Category:Copywriters to Category:Bob Newhart? Do you understand what a "copywriter" is? In English, a "copywriter" is someone who writes text for advertisements or commercials. Beyond My Ken (talk) 08:11, 24 November 2012 (UTC)

Picture of the Year 2013 R1 Announcement[edit]

Round 1 of Picture of the Year 2013 is open![edit]

2012 Picture of the Year: A pair of European Bee-eaters in Ariège, France.

Dear Wikimedians,

Wikimedia Commons is happy to announce that the 2013 Picture of the Year competition is now open. This year will be the eighth edition of the annual Wikimedia Commons photo competition, which recognizes exceptional contributions by users on Wikimedia Commons. Wikimedia users are invited to vote for their favorite images featured on Commons during the last year (2013) to produce a single Picture of the Year.

Hundreds of images that have been rated Featured Pictures by the international Wikimedia Commons community in the past year are all entered in this competition. These images include professional animal and plant shots, breathtaking panoramas and skylines, restorations of historical images, photographs portraying the world's best architecture, impressive human portraits, and so much more.

For your convenience, we have sorted the images into topical categories. Two rounds of voting will be held: In the first round, you may vote for as many images as you like. The top 30 overall and the most popular image in each category will continue to the final. In the final round, you may vote for just one image to become the Picture of the Year.

Round 1 will end on . Click here to learn more and vote »

Thanks,
the Wikimedia Commons Picture of the Year committee

You are receiving this message because you voted in the 2012 Picture of the Year contest.

User talk:Kwangmo and ticket:2014082010012097[edit]

There is doubt that not all files are owned by him. In ticket:2014081610008761(Korean) he said there is some photo he does not own - he just said "Copyright owner (photographer) gave me the copyright". (해당 사진들은 지방소방공무원이 촬영한 사진으로 촬영자 혹은 양수인이 제게 저작권을 양도하였습다.). This should be {{OTRS received}} until that things are clarified. Face-smile.svg Revicomplaint? 08:07, 21 August 2014 (UTC)

Thanks for the barnstar[edit]

Thanks for the barnstar - PJeganathan (talk) 18:19, 24 September 2016 (UTC)

Thank You[edit]

Thank you so much for the edit. The point is Akhund Mulla Shah's Mosque is situated in Jammu and Kashmir not in West Bengal. But you add this in Category:Cultural heritage monuments in West Bengal. So I am removing it.--Indrajit Das 05:05, 3 October 2016 (UTC)

@Indrajitdas: I get that. But why did you undid all my edits to the Kalna temple images? All those images are part of Category:Kalna Temple Complex, which is a part of the categories Category:Hindu temples in West Bengal and Category:Kalna. Categorizing all the individual images in both these parent categories is against the Wikimedia Commons guidelines. Have a look at Commons:Categories#Over-categorization. Utcursch (talk) 11:55, 3 October 2016 (UTC)

@Utcursch: Thank you so much. You are right from your technical point of view but Kalna has temples of different faiths like Vaishnav, Shoibo not only Hindu. My second point is, all those temples are not only part of the Kalna complex but some are outside of the complex but in Kalna. I hope you will consider my point of view. --Indrajit Das 16:52, 3 October 2016 (UTC)

@Indrajitdas: OK, thanks for the explanation. Great pics, by the way. Utcursch (talk) 23:54, 3 October 2016 (UTC)
@Utcursch: Thank you so much for the help and also I am thankful to you to understand my point of view. Hope to keep in touch with you in future.--Indrajit Das 03:51, 4 October 2016 (UTC)

Historical maps of South Asia[edit]

Hi Utcursch,

You may have been looking for this map: File:South Asia historical AD625 EN.svg. I created a series of maps from the 3rd to 7th century (all in the same cat). I may add more later. The western boundaries of the Kushana empire were a problem. Cheers, Woudloper (talk) 15:16, 14 October 2016 (UTC)

@Woudloper: Thanks! Several other India-related maps on Commons wildly exaggerate the borders of the kingdoms. But I find your maps to be very accurate. The design (colors, fonts etc.) is great too! Utcursch (talk) 15:26, 14 October 2016 (UTC)

Your VFC installation method is deprecated[edit]

Hello Utcursch, we are aware that using the old installation method of VFC (via common.js, which you are using) may not work reliably anymore and can break other scripts as well. A detailed explanation can be found here. Important: To prevent problems please remove the old VFC installation code from your common.js and instead enable the VFC gadget in your preferences. Thanks! --VFC devs (q) 16:23, 22 May 2017 (UTC)
