Tip: Categorizing imagesEdit

Hello, Haha169!

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.

Re: Pasting new states into world laws mapEdit

Hey.. I don't mind, though not sure I am the most qualified to be mis-instructing you on this lol. Sorry if I go over a step you already know, but here is how I have been doing it, from start to finish:

  • Open the blank svg map (like File:Blank US Map.svg)
    • In the map editing window, if everything isn't already selected, hit Ctrl+A to select all
    • In Inkscape (if this is what you're using), there is a button on the toolbar to Ungroup objects, click this (you might have to do it 1 or 2 more other times depending on the map you're using, if groups still exist which are keeping you from selecting the state you want)
    • Once everything is ungrouped, select the state you want by clicking on it & Ctrl+C it to the clipboard
  • Open the world laws map:
    • Paste the state in (Ctrl+V)
    • It probably will be way too big and need to be resized: Resize the way you would any graphic, but hold down ctrl while you are doing it to scale horizontal and vertical uniformly.
    • Once you get it down to the right size, you will probably need to skew it to one side to match the other states:
      • If the new state is already selected, click it another time, and the arrows on the corners will change to let you rotate it, and the arrows at the top/bottom/sides will change to let you skew its angle horizontally to match the other states. This is the "fun" part (matching the other states) :-D . Wikignome0529 (talk) 23:56, 27 June 2009 (UTC)
That's weird... I use Ubuntu and had never noticed that, though I almost always open the 2nd file from within the 1st window, so I guess that's why. I posted a message at en:Wikipedia:Graphic Lab/Map workshop#World homosexuality laws.svg map about the world laws map to see if anyone knew of an alternate map to use, or if a more experienced SVG user would be willing to help.

Hi! Where have you found this SVG version of the new Ubuntu logo? The artwork page on the official wiki doesn't feature it yet. We need to update Source and Author fields on File:Ubuntu logo.svg. - Nicosmos (talk) 19:06, 29 April 2010 (UTC)

Ok, I found it. It come from wiki.ubuntu.com/Artwork/VisualIdentity. - Nicosmos (talk) 19:32, 30 April 2010 (UTC)

Re: File:World_homosexuality_laws.svgEdit

I updated with Inkscape but got an error message because of server trouble. Not sure whether it will be corrected or a later reupload is needed. Hekerui (talk) 08:59, 23 August 2010 (UTC)

I think it worked, only it's not yet taken, I guess because of the thumbnail problems. Hekerui (talk) 13:36, 23 August 2010 (UTC)

I don't understand why you haven't tagged all the other songs in the very same soundtrack...but okay. There are no changes needed. Simply navigate to the information box, click the "album link" link, and you will find the appropriate license on the right bar under "Your rights on this album". Besides, Jamendo is all CC.

confused - please help! map requestEdit

Hey Haha169,

I love your work on Arab speaking nations. I am currently working on Muammar Gaddafi and I want to put up a world map that shows the nations he's visited and fought with and tried to merge with. I have a list, but I have no idea how to put it onto a map. Please help!! :-<

Sincerely,

Color blindness and this map.Edit

Hi Haha169, The map of California showing which counties voted is nice. But there are many people (mostly men) that are color blind and usually red-green color blind. Like me! Personally, I cannot tell the difference in colors on your map! It all looks like one color!!! I can only assume you are using green and red colors??????

Can you modify this map? For instance "yes" equals green and "no" equals yellow?

Thanks for considering this.

Chick-Fil-A location distributionEdit

Hello,

There was recently a thread on Reddit [2] discussing the map you created where several people noticed errors in the data. Where did you get the data from?

I believe it was this: [3] --Haha169 (talk) 04:31, 11 August 2012 (UTC)

LICENSE WRONG. Aleksi Aubry-Carlson https://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/File:Wesnothmain.oggEdit

Are you sure the license you set is correct? Did Aleksi Aubry-Carlson release it under CC BY-3.0 before joining Sacem? If not, the music is not licensed under CC BY-3.0 but under Sacem, and Sacem only allows Creative Commons licenses with the NC, Non-Commercial clause. The reason I don't believe Aleksi Aubry-Carlson's music was licensed as CC BY-3.0 is because the music was donated to the copyleft game Battle for Wesnoth and that is GPL. Thank you. Logictheo (talk) 15:24, 15:25, 4 February 2013 (UTC)

I'm not sure what Sacem is, but I distinctly recall that it was under CC BY-3.0 (as was all of his other works) when the song was uploaded to the Commons. That was a long time ago, though, so I cannot remember exactly. I may be wrong.--Haha169 (talk) 00:54, 5 February 2013 (UTC)

Proposition 8 map: Solano CountyEdit

Hi, over in Wikipedia, en:Talk:California Proposition 8, a user noted an error on File:CA2008Prop8.svg: "The Prop 8 map on the top of the page incorrectly shows Solano County as having voted against prop 8 when it did vote for prop 8." He's right; Solano County voted 55.9%-44.1% in favor of the proposition; and the map does show it as red (no). Can you correct this?

I'd love to know what you use to produce maps like this, by the way. TJRC (talk) 23:19, 26 June 2013 (UTC)

Definitely! You can either get Adobe Illustrator (which costs a bucketload of money), or you can get the free alternative, Inkscape. These programs deal with vector graphics, and are different in many ways from image editing software like Photoshop or Gimp. There's a steep learning curve, but editing maps like these should be easy enough to learn. Good luck! --Haha169 (talk) 00:52, 27 June 2013 (UTC)
Thanks. I've played a little with Inkscape, but never was able to get any traction on it. Where do you get the map to start wit? By the way, I see you uploaded a new copy, but it's bit-for-bit identical to the old copy Solano is still red. TJRC (talk) 01:10, 27 June 2013 (UTC)
It's been updated. If you're still seeing the old version, try clearing your cache, or "edit" the image page, and in the url, change the &action=edit into &action=purge. To find the base map, run a Google search for Wikipedia vector maps, you should come up with a bunch! Good luck!--Haha169 (talk) 17:22, 6 July 2013 (UTC)
Yep, it looks like it was my problem, likely the cache. Looks fine now, and it's the same date as the one I downloaded to check, so problem was clearly on my end. Thanks for the update, and the map info. TJRC (talk) 18:29, 6 July 2013 (UTC)
