Thank you for uploading images on Commons.

Please add license tag(s) (see Commons:Copyright tags for more information).

Please add your images to appropriative pages and/or categories where other users could easily find them.

  1. Art in public domain should be marked with {{PD-Art}}. As far as I understand scans of public domain art can't be copyrighted. Main issue - to know date of death of artist, because copyright expiration count since that date (for example 50 years in Belarus/Russia, 70 years in USA (I don't sure about this number)).
  2. I prefer to move contents manually because Commons have stricter rules regarding copyrights and description then average Wikipedia (for example Russian). But I read that Wikipedia bot kit include scripts for moving images.
  3. Good idea to ask your Wikipedia admin to translate MediaWiki:sharedupload in the way which will allow to see description on Commons (see en:MediaWiki:sharedupload as example). You could add your language translation in image description on Commons. It could be shared within other projects on your language.
  4. Off topic. I have Bulgarian friends, could read Bulgarian and even read "Дванадесете стола" (indeed I read Russian original before :-).

Warning sign
This media may be deleted.

Thanks for uploading Image:Kunisada_-_fifty-three_post_stations_of_Tokaido.jpg. I notice the image page currently doesn't specify who created the content, so the copyright status is unclear. If you have not created this media yourself then you need to argue that we have the right to use the media on Wikimedia Commons (see copyright tagging below). If you have not created the media yourself then you should also specify where you found it, i.e., in most cases link to the website where you got it, and the terms of use for content from that page. If the content is a derivative of a copyrighted work, you need to supply the names and a licence of the original authors as well.

If the media also doesn't have a copyright tag, then you must also add one. If you created/took the picture, audio, or video then you can use {{self|cc-by-sa-3.0}} to release it under the Creative Commons Attribution-ShareAlike license or {{PD-self}} to release it into the public domain. See Commons:Copyright tags for the full list of copyright tags that you can use.

Note that any unsourced and untagged images will be deleted one week after they have been uploaded, as described on criteria for speedy deletion. If you have uploaded other media, please check that you have specified their source and copyright tagged them, too. You can find all your uploads using the Gallery tool. Thank you.

Tip: Categorizing imagesEdit

Hello, Ben!

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.
