Hello, Fukuokakyushu2012!

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.

Hi, and thanks for your recent uploads! Welcome to the immense world of BSicons, so to say ;) I would just like to notice that your files actually are not proper svgs, but rather png images embedded into svg shell. This results in relatively large file sizes (> 10 KB), and does not make use of the main svg features: easy scaling and rendering.

The first thing I would strongly recommend you: do not use Inkscape! Or any other highly intelligent software like Corel Draw. Even if properly employed to create true svgs, these applications introduce a lot of excessive code that only eats space (and increases server load). BSicons by their nature are very simple images, and all parts of them can be easily described using XML syntax. To edit and create such files, it is enough to use the most simple text editors, such as Notepad, Notepad++, KWrite, Wordpad etc. You can try opening File:BSicon vHST.svg in such an editor, and you'll see quite a simple code that can be modified without much knowledge of XML. The result can be previewed, for example, in Google Chrome or in Internet Explorer 10. Most BSicons can be kept under 1KB in size.

Also, please do not forget to add categories when uploading files. All BSicons are currently located in some subcategory of Category:Icons for railway descriptions; otherwise one would be able to find them only by chance. Recently I've been stumbling upon quite relevant icons in most unexpected places, like Category:Green discs or Category:Geography of North Yorkshire. Always such a surprise...

Oh, and one more thing. It was agreed (at some subpage of Talk:BSicon) that BSicons are most appropriately licensed with {{PD-shape}}.

Once again, thanks for your uploads! Don't let these comments discourage you. YLSS (talk) 11:23, 22 May 2013 (UTC)
