Hello, Zo3a!

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"). 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.

Military ranks[edit]

The navy ranks are already in place, Egyptian Navy ranks. As for the air force, I am working on the files. Whenever they are ready, I shall have add them here. What do you mean when you say you tried to add them, do you have files? If you do, could you please share them with me. Maybe it will help with the air force rank insignia. A elalaily (talk) 18:30, 12 September 2011 (UTC)

Yes, I imagine that would be disappointing. I have the silver star, eagle and swords. But the problem is the eagle wings below the shoulder board. As soon as I get it done, it wouldn't be long before I have it uploaded here.
I want to ask you something regarding the different shoulder board insignia, what is present in the small circle on top, for army, navy and air force? At first I thought it was the Eagle, but then I think that was not right. So, I had placed an anchor for the navy, and two crossing things for the army. I couldn't find anywhere what is actually placed. If you know could you please tell me?
One last thing, I checked the Turco-Egyptian rank insignia, and was wondering if those are files you make, if this is the case, why don't you work with .svg files. They are much better, as they can be rendered into different image sizes. See the diagram itself isn't pixels like normal images, but is a set of geometrical equations.
Here's an example, those are different size rendering of the same file:

Re: Egyptian Air Force ranks[edit]

Nice work buddy on the Air Force shoulder board insignia. I have been looking for a source for the eagle below to finish working on those, as I have done for the army and navy insignia shoulder boards.

However, I have something to ask you. Have you worked with SVG files before? If you have, is it possible to export those files as SVGs?

SVG files have a great advantage, you can size them to whichever size suits your use. For example File:EgyptianNavyInsignia-Admiral-shoulderboard.svg, you can get it as a 200 pixel image, 500 pixel image, 1000 pixel image, 2000 pixel image, etc, without affecting the quality of the image. It also makes them easier to edit on the long run.

Please get back to me even if you could not export the files as SVGs, as I have this template. I think the silver star and Saladin eagle here could replace the ones you have. Let's set up a way where I can send you the original file. And maybe also the original material I used for the army and navy non-commissioned officers

Anyway, fantastic work! I'm glad somebody took it up to themselves to finish up with the air force shoulder board insignia.

Cheers,

Egyptian uniforms[edit]

Hello,

I noticed you have uploaded illustrations of egyptian military uniforms. I also noticed you have sourced them as "own work."
This is inaccurate. You have based those uniforms on deviantArt illustrations, mainly of my own making.

I have given my base illustrations as freely usable bases, but with the condition of credit and attribution: "You are free to use and modify these designs, but if you do use them, give the due credit (short mention and link)."
Neither of these conditions have been met. I demand that you provide appropriate credit on the following uploaded image files:
