Tip: Categorizing 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.
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]]
When picking categories, try to choose a specific category ("Astronomical diagrams") over a generic one ("Illustrations").

your comments to Beria
Hi Wuhazet, comments to another user such as this or this are rather inappropriate. Even if you did mean well, it is not o.k. to make references to her appearance and private life, as it could well be understood as a personal advance towards Beria or putting pressure on her only to enforce your opinion in a category matter. Just to be sure, your behaviour has been brought to COM:AN/U and if you repeat it, you will likely get blocked. --Túrelio (talk) 14:26, 24 August 2011 (UTC)
- After discussion with Túrelio, I have blocked this user indefinitely. While I recognize that there may be cultural differences working here, if the two people involved both worked for me, User:Wuhazet would have been fired for his repeated harassment. I will see if we can find a Polish Admin to look at the cultural issues. Jim . . . . Jameslwoodward (talk to me) 15:52, 24 August 2011 (UTC)

Przeprosiny dla Beria Lima
Jeśli odebrałaś moją korespondencję z Tobą na Twojej stronie dyskusji jako atak na Ciebie, bądź nie daj Boże próbę ingerowania w Twoje prywatne życie, przyjmij tą drogą moje przeprosiny. Nie było moim zamiarem obrażanie Ciebie tylko uświadomienie Tobie, aby nie popełniać zbyt pochopnych, błędnych i docelowo nonsensownych edycji w kwestii kategoryzacji. Pozdrów swojego przyjaciela, z którego pozwoliłem sobie zażartować mówiąc: "ZMIEŃ PRZYJACIELA ;)" Jak widzisz z cytatu był to oczywiście żart. Jeszcze raz publicznie wszem i wobec po trzykroć PRZEPRASZAM, PRZEPRASZAM, PRZEPRASZAM. A to na dowód, iż moje przeprosiny są szczere... --Wuhazet (talk) 18:20, 24 August 2011 (UTC)
- I unblocked you, based in your apologie here. I'm glad you had the courage to apologize (several would not do that). I hope we can work in peace from now on... and please - for the sake of everyone - let's avoid any personal comments, ok? Best regards, Béria Lima msg 21:39, 24 August 2011 (UTC)
