Hello, Wiki-uk!

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"). 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.

Pranama generally involves bowing or touching the ground, neither is done in this case. It is just women climbing stairs, not really any Hindu ritual. --Redtigerxyz (talk) 17:16, 17 January 2012 (UTC)

Wooden sticks (for procession)[edit]

The Wooden sticks (for procession) are not part of Hindu rituals per se. It is the paraded icons that are part of ritual. The processional gold/bronze icons are known as utsava-murti (sub-class of w:murti). If the icon is in a covered vehicle, the vehicle is known as a palkhi (w:Litter (vehicle))--Redtigerxyz (talk) 17:20, 17 January 2012 (UTC)

Utsava means festival, any festival eg. Ganeshostava: Ganesha festival (Ganesh Chaturthi); Deepotsava: festival of lights (Diwali). --Redtigerxyz (talk) 16:50, 2 February 2012 (UTC)

Hello. I just wanted to let you know that I have granted autopatrol rights to your account; the reason for this is that I believe you are sufficiently trustworthy and experienced to have your contributions automatically sighted. This will have no effect on your editing, and is simply intended to help users watching Recent changes or Recent uploads to find unproductive edits amidst the productive ones. Thank you. --Sreejith K (talk) 06:17, 3 July 2012 (UTC)

Category:English language flags[edit]

Should probably be more along the lines of "Category:Flags foe the English language"... AnonMoos (talk) 11:20, 22 December 2015 (UTC)
