Hello, VtTN!

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.

Category:Tamil Nadu State Transport Corporation respectively Commons:Categories[edit]

Hi, as mentioned before,

1) please avoid such 'general' categorisation as (p.e.) "Tamil Nadu" as being marked by the tag {categorise} and many, many categories already are established, among them (p.e.) Category:Tamil Nadu State Transport Corporation.

2) Referring to Category:Tamil Nadu State Transport Corporation, therefore there's also absolutely no need to "re-categorize" respectively to add additionaly Category:TNSTC, as already being categorised.

For further information please read respectively ask within the forum Commons:Categories. Regards, Roland 11:44, 7 July 2011 (UTC)

Commons:Categories and please avoid "over-categorization"[edit]

Hi, as imho mentioned before, some categories have been tagged as {categorize}, therefore p.e. that edit has been fixed. Please also check Commons:categories and avoid so-called "over-categorization", among them categories of countries, cities etc. Best regards, Roland zh (talk) 16:54, 26 August 2014 (UTC)
