Tip: Categorizing imagesEdit

Hello, Adriaan!

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.

Afikaans translations neededEdit

Hi! I contact you as you speak English and Afrikaans.

Jastrow and I are working on autotranslating {{Meta information museum}}, the meta-template we use for many museums, like {{Information Louvre}}. Could you please help us find Afrikaans translations for every tag name:

   * artist/maker
   * description
   * dimensions
   * credit line
   * accession number
   * location
   * source/photographer
   * references
   * other versions

"Credit line" is mainly about the mode of acquisition: what collection does it come from? Did it join the collections by gift, purchase, on loan, etc.?

Thanks for any help. Bibi Saint-Pol (sprechen) 16:17, 28 July 2009 (UTC)

Shall I reply but here?
   * artist/maker = kunstenaar/skepper
   * description = beskrywing
   * dimensions = dimensies
   * credit line = verkrygingskanaal
   * accession number = 
   * location = plek
   * source/photographer = bron/fotograaf
   * references = verwysings
   * other versions = ander weergawes
I will have another user from the Afrikaans Wikipedia sign here before I would consider this translations published. I am e.g. unsure about accession number (verwys). Godspeed — Adriaan90 (Bespreking • Bydraes) 19:44, 28 July 2009 (UTC)
"Acession number" is 'n "aanwinsnommer" of "stamboeknommer". Anrie 87.209.183.151 20:08, 28 July 2009 (UTC)
Ek sien Pharos se Tweetalige woordeboek gee: "an accession to the library - 'n aanwins vir die biblioteek" en die Verklarende Afrikaanse Woordeboek gee onder aanwins: "1. Verkryging as eiendom". Dalk kan 'n mens dan praat van 'n aanwinsnommer? Winstonza (talk) 20:12, 28 July 2009 (UTC)
Perhaps would it be helpful if I tell you that “accession number” is translated by Inventaris nummer in Dutch (and the same in many other languages, like numéro d'inventaire in French or Inventarnummer in German). It is used to refer to a unique ID given by a museum to each object of its collection. Bibi Saint-Pol (sprechen) 20:45, 28 July 2009 (UTC)
I just created the appropriate subtemplate for Afrikaans with the upon translations. Just waiting for “accession number”. Bibi Saint-Pol (sprechen) 20:54, 28 July 2009 (UTC)
My vertalings kom uit die Suid-Afrikaanse Akademie vir Wetenskap en Kuns se Biblioteekwoordeboek, dus is hulle korrek. Anrie (talk) 06:52, 29 July 2009 (UTC)

Commons:Deletion requests/Files from Bob Bobster on FlickrEdit

Hi Adriaan! Bob Bobster (bobster855) on Flickr is known to upload files created by others, marking them with licenses that he has no legal right to release them under, and failing to credit the actual authors. The account is therefore listed as an unreliable source at Commons:Questionable Flickr images.

I have initiated a review of all files taken from this Flickr user that I could find. Since you uploaded one or more of those files to Commons, you may wish to comment at Commons:Deletion requests/Files from Bob Bobster on Flickr. It is possible that some of the files should be kept, but even most of the ones that may be okay to keep need to have their authorship, licensing and other information corrected.
