Red cats and dead InterwikisEdit

Hi, I noticed that you put some pictures into Category:Barbara McClintock but gave it no live parent categories; only a dead one. I gave it several live parents, taken from one of the picture files. Also you named several different language Wikipedia articles, which also appear to be dead links. Need any help in making new categories? Commons:Help desk is one place to ask, or here in your own talk page now that I'm looking at it. Jim.henderson (talk) 06:14, 15 April 2009 (UTC)

Thanks for the help Jim, will detail more in the future.
About "Also you named several different language Wikipedia articles, which also appear to be dead links.": all of the interwikis at Category:Barbara McClintock can be opened and lead to existing WP articles. Perhaps only a temporary problem ? Or is it another category/page ? ----Erkan Yilmaz 07:41, 15 April 2009 (UTC)
Oops! Temporary problem in my sleepy mind, at the end of a long session of adjusting orphaned categories and other problems elsewhere. Yes, you did a good job with the Interwikis; I ought to make more of those myself in Commons Cats. Anyway you should review any other categories you have made, to ensure that they are properly linked into the great universal tree of categories so users can crawl up and down the tree and find further related delights. Jim.henderson (talk) 17:48, 15 April 2009 (UTC)
I looked at my edits today and added parent categories for empty categories. Thanks again for the reminder. Happy editing, ----Erkan Yilmaz 18:38, 15 April 2009 (UTC)

File migration from GFDL to CC-BY-SA-3.0Edit

Hi, you may not be aware that "In accordance with the Licensing update and associated WMF Board Resolution, Wikimedia will be exercising its rights under GFDL 1.3 to dual license existing GFDL content — text and images — under CC-BY-SA 3.0 (Creative Commons Attribution ShareAlike 3.0) starting June 15th, 2009."^.

  • Basically files with GFDL1.2 with the "and later versions" licenses are now available under GFDL 1.3 which allows us to migrate them to a CC-BY-SA-3.0 license. I note some of the files you have uploaded or edited have the {{Cc-by-nc-sa-2.0-dual}} template which suggests to me that you may not want to expand to the more open CC-BY-SA-3.0 license.
  • I urge you to make these files more widely usable by adding a more general license yourself. But understand that this may not be possible (eg if the original is not your own work). If you are happy with the 'migration' of the license you can either widen the terms yourself or do nothing and it will be done by a bot anyway.
  • The Commons community has recognised that some people may want or need to opt-out of this 'migration' - to do so: add the text "migration=opt-out" to the license template eg {{GFDL|migration=opt-out}} or {{Cc-by-nc-sa-2.0-dual|migration=opt-out}}
I hope that this is of some use to you, don't hesitate to contact me if you have questions (although I'm not actually an expert on licensing questions :-) --Tony Wills (talk) 01:57, 4 August 2009 (UTC)
Thanks for the info Toni, I will use the opt-out. See you, ----Erkan Yilmaz 04:44, 4 August 2009 (UTC)

Tip: Categorizing imagesEdit

Hello, Erkan Yilmaz!

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.
