Please link imagesEdit

Hello - thank you for providing images to the wikimedia commons. Please keep in mind that images uploaded to the commons should be useful to all users of wikimedia projects - this is possible only if the images can be found by other people. To allow others to find the images you uploaded here, the images should be in some place that can be found by navigating the category structure. This means that you should either place the images on topic pages (galleries), or put the images directly into a category, or do both. Which of those possibilities is preferred is however a matter of debate, see here.

The important point is that the images should be placed in the general structure somewhere. There is a large number of completely unsorted images on the commons right now, see Commons:Really unused. If you would like to help to place some of those images where they can be found, please do! Thank you. -- Duesentrieb 01:01, 9 Apr 2005 (UTC)

European ConstitutionEdit

Hello. Those images were uploaded to go on these two pages on Wikisource:

Looking at those pages I think they're all there but I'll go through and put any that aren't in the category into it. Cheers. Trilobite 14:46, 7 May 2005 (UTC)

By my count there are 53 files in the category now (not including that Spanish front cover). 25 of them are from Part IV and then there are another 25 from the Final Act (these aren't duplicates - they signed both), plus the three observers who only signed the Final Act. They were all taken from the PDFs of the Constitution buried somewhere in the bowels of the EU's website. I could find the exact files for you if you want but if you look at the pages on Wikisource there should be no gaps, and I think I've managed to catch all those images and put them in the category now. Trilobite 15:18, 7 May 2005 (UTC)

ImagesEdit

Hello. Thank you for your hints. Did I do something wrong? Stern 22:44, 14 May 2005 (UTC)

I will add this information later. Thank you. Stern 22:52, 14 May 2005 (UTC)

a quick questionEdit

Since it looks like you're using them, do you know where a good page like this one of image tags for the commons is? I need to find one. Thanks! --Zantastik 00:28, 17 May 2005 (UTC)

Deleted images -help please.Edit

Dear Mr Joolz,

I thought in good faith that, being as they're in the English Wikipedia, the "Exocet Impact" and "Gotcha Cover" images would be appropiate for Commons. Seems i was wrong. :-) The first one was merely ilustrative, but the second one of them, the Gotcha cover of The Sun, was needed for an extensive and very detailed article I'm currently writing in the Spanish Wikipedia about the Falklands War, including public opinion and media reactions. Would you please help me and tell me if there is any possibility to use it linking directly from the English Wikipedia or wathever? (The Spanish Wikipedia doesn't allow uploading, referring this to Commons)

(See: Falklands War in the Spanish Wikipedia ).

Thank you in advance, --MaeseLeon 11:04, 17 May 2005 (UTC)

Quite a pity, since the Spanish copyright laws are actually less restrictive about "fair use" than American ones. Anyway, rules are rules and I'll take your advice and link to it. Thank you very much again. --MaeseLeon 01:20, 18 May 2005 (UTC)

Halo 2Edit

Sorry, i was under the impression that Bungie, the maker of the game released these images (on their website) under the GNU free document license. Sorry for the misunderstanding.

thepretenders22

A question on licence and quoting the sourceEdit

Hi, u advised me to put the GNU-Tag under my own photos, it isnt really understandable for the users not speaking english properly how to do it and that it is needed. I have one more question: if i link any image as a thumb in an article in wikipedia, should i name the source, when it comes from a "copyrighted but free to use"-source or is it enough when it stand in the licence comment? --Shaqspeare 15:57, 26 May 2005 (UTC) working on Polish and German wiki

Castelnovo_monti.jpgEdit

I did not really read the difference between GFDL and GPL. If you like that picture, you can do whatever you want with it, if legal, just naming wikipedia and myself as author. I would also like to know if you are using it, but do not feel obliged, it is just because I am curious. --Paolo da Reggio 16:36, 30 May 2005 (UTC)

Copyright TagsEdit

I uploaded the Image:View_from_Mardin_to_the_Mesopotamian_plains.jpg twice (one as .JPG), sorry the other has the Tags set aprobiatley. I marked this one for deletion. Florenco 18:04, 4 Jun 2005 (UTC)

almsbowlEdit

I don't know why I cannot put these two images in the category 'Buddhist monasticism'. Could you help? Image:Almsbowl2.jpg and Image:Almsbowl.jpg. --DhJ 17:55, 17 Jun 2005 (UTC)

I have to get used to it, Wikimedia commons is a bit different from normal wikipedia. But I've found it out now, I think: I thought buddhist monasticism was a category while actually it is an article... --DhJ 22:22, 17 Jun 2005 (UTC)

One more question: If an image is included in the article 'buddhist monasticism', would it still be a good idea to include it in the category 'buddhist monasticism' also?

hechoEdit

Ya he puesto la licencia GFDL en las imágenes que me has dicho. Saludos.--Rafaelji 20:10, 14 July 2005 (UTC)

Template:I loveEdit

Hello Joolz, why you "rearrange" the Template:I love? Smile fasdfdsfoiueire.svg Only for know, because I don't know but I thinked the {{Support}} must be inside. Thank's! see you --FML IconSP.jpg hi 18:15, 21 July 2005 (UTC)

Hey, I thought it would be better to have all the supports lined up, it doesn't particularly matter that it doesn't use the {{support}} template because all it's contents are included. Regards, Joolz 08:55, 22 July 2005 (UTC)
Yes, it's OK, but if the {{support}} change, the {{I love}} don't change automatictly, only in this I think, but I agree with you that the position is better like you let. Thanks for explanation! ;) bye --FML IconSP.jpg hi 22:43, 22 July 2005 (UTC)

Image:Carte Orange front 1.jpgEdit

Can you protect this for the en main page? (The current image on DYK does not have a free license). Thanks.--65.229.112.119 21:24, 25 July 2005 (UTC)

done! -- Joolz 21:26, 25 July 2005 (UTC)

Midi-FilesEdit

Hello Joolz,

you wrote: "Hey, I noticed you've uploaded a lot of media which doesn't have a valid tag (for instance Image:GeronimosCadillacDrums.mid but there's ten or so more), on the commons the tag is simply {{GFDL}}. Regards, Joolz 16:12, 24 July 2005 (UTC)"

Sorry. I don`t know, what you mean with "valid tag". I played a few bars from these songs on my keyboard (workstation) just for demonstration in wikipedia-articles related to music. In german law, it`s allowed to use short pieces of musical works of others (if it`s for scientific non-commercial demonstration), and it doesn`t make the owner of these titles a financial loss. I don`t think that a midi-file sounds so good, that someone wouldn`t buy the CD with the original song. Regards —Boris Fernbacher 17:20, 26 July 2005 (UTC)

You had put a licence tag of {{Picture-GFDL}} which doesn't exist, so I was just pointing out that the valid one is {{GFDL}} (see Commons:Copyright tags for all the licences available)! However, you've now raised an interesting point which I didn't notice before, if the work that's being played is still copyrighted, and you're not the copyright holder, then we can't allow it on the commons. The Commons requires that anybody can use the media for any use, and this includes commerical use (see Commons:Licensing for more information) so unfortuantly these sound files are going to have to be deleted. Regards, Joolz 17:52, 26 July 2005 (UTC)

"Unknown" tagsEdit

Hi! When putting an "unknown" tag on a file, it would be helpful if you could notify the uploader so that they have a change to correctly tag the file. I realise this may be difficult when you're going through a lot of files, but it could save files from being mistakenly deleted later. -- Ranveig 10:22, 28 July 2005 (UTC) (In case you're wondering, a deletion request on Image:Stortinget.jpg and Image:Stortinget2.jpg brought this on.)

Hi there, there are currently thousands (or, there were up until recently, I've tagged 3,000 or so so far) of images with no licence tags, so you have to prioritise who you spend more time on, there are some prolific uploaders who haven't tagged their images. I'm sorry I didn't give you a notice that you hadn't tagged your images though, but what matters is that they're now tagged, that's the most important thing. -- Joolz 11:07, 28 July 2005 (UTC)
Yeah, I can see how things get messy fast. Still, it would be said if some picture got deleted in this way because its uploard didn't use Commons much. -- Ranveig 22:31, 28 July 2005 (UTC)

Image:Commonwealth of Nations.pngEdit

Someone has pointed out to me that Malta does not appear on this map; would you be willing to update it? Mindspillage 15:10, 11 August 2005 (UTC)

I'll try and get round to it later, it will be a very tiny dot though. -- Joolz 15:44, 14 August 2005 (UTC)

Always carry protectionEdit

Hi Joolz,

If you get a chance, can you take a look at Image:Split Aloe.jpg and Image:Chamomile@original size.jpg and check that I have protected them correctly. Its the first time I've protected images for use on the En MainPage. -- Solipsist 20:17, 12 August 2005 (UTC)

Oops - would have been smarter if I had read your note at the top about being away... never mind. -- Solipsist 15:00, 13 August 2005 (UTC)
Hehe, everything looks fine to me :) Just remember to unprotect it once en main page's finished with it. -- Joolz 15:44, 14 August 2005 (UTC)


TheatreRougeVideo1.oggEdit

Hello

okiiiiii for the liscence !! ... I had forgotten, sorry, well I have a question about this ".ogg", it's oky to have "image:" and not "video" ? Is it exiting the name "video" for "video" or it is always "image" for all uploading document ??

thank you, I don't speak very well english, if you want to reply me it's possible in french ?


What does it mean this sentence :

"Warning: This file may contain malicious code, by executing it your system may be compromised."


Clairette le 22 august 2005 11h02 CEST

Re the delete tagEdit

Thanks for that Joolz. You'll note I already have an account on en: but thanks for the welcome too. Do you know of a way to rename or "move" the images if you realise you've made an accidental naming conflict with en: (or any other) Wikipedia? Thanks! --Lisathurston 02:19, 28 August 2005 (UTC)

Unfortuantly there's no way of moving images, the only thing you can do is re-upload with the new name and mark the old one for deletion. Actually, the other thing you can do is use check-usage to see if anything's using the name :) Regards, Joolz 10:54, 28 August 2005 (UTC)

BrainsEdit

Hey there :) I saw Image:Human brain NIH.jpg but I couldn't find the duplicate image, where is it? Thanks, Joolz 20:58, 27 August 2005 (UTC)

Yea, I couldn't find it either, hence the duplicate copy from en.wikipedia. It's under [[Image:Human brain NIH.jpeg]]. That's the same name, but with the "jpeg" extension in place of my "jpg". It doesn't show up as an image under the category "Brain anatomy", which is where I looked for it. For some reason, it shows up as an article instead. Do you know how to fix that ? If you could tell me how, it would be much appreciated ! StuRat 07:14, 28 August 2005 (UTC)
Nobody had put it in Category:Brain anatomy (in fact, that category was only created yesterday :) - I've put it in there now, I've also placed {{NowCommons}} on the image in enwiki. Regards, Joolz 11:01, 28 August 2005 (UTC)
I think I see a problem. The en.wikipedia entry ends in "jpg", so links to it won't find the wiki commons entry under "jpeg", once the en.wikipedia entry is deleted, will they ? StuRat 12:08, 28 August 2005 (UTC)
All the references to the .jpg image would need to be changed over to the .jpeg one beforehand. The other alternative is to change over any references to the .jpeg image on any other wikipedias and re-upload the .jpg one. -- Joolz 12:12, 28 August 2005 (UTC)
The first option is scary, that image is used many, many times. The second option would be good, except the commons image doesn't list any links, when I know it has at least one, from the Wikinews article UK study claims men have higher average I.Q. than women. If it can't track interwiki links correctly, how will we find them all ? StuRat 20:05, 28 August 2005 (UTC)
There's a tool which can do this, it's located here: check-usage. Regards :) -- Joolz 20:07, 28 August 2005 (UTC)
Ok, I used that tool, found all refs to "jpeg", switched them all over to "jpg", marked all local copies of "jpg" with Template:NowCommons, and marked the "jpeg" image here with {{delete}} and included an explanation there. Am I all set, or do I need to do anything else to clean up this mess ? StuRat 22:15, 28 August 2005 (UTC)
BTW, what do those "10,000+", "40,000+" and "100,000+" buttons do ? StuRat 22:26, 28 August 2005 (UTC)
If you click the "100,000+" button it will mark all the wikipedias with more than 100,000 articles (currently en, de, fr, ja, sv). Everything is done your end, it now just needs to be deleted, which I might get round to in a little while if someone doesn't beat me to it :) Regards, -- Joolz 22:31, 28 August 2005 (UTC)
Thanks ! StuRat 11:00, 29 August 2005 (UTC)

Milton KeynesEdit

I noticed the recat of Milton Keynes, and I'm not sure how it should be done. MK is a city, but within the city area there are several older villages and town, with some degree of autonomy from the city authorities. I'm thinking it might also be right to add Category:Cities in England to it. (?). Cnyborg 15:00, 28 August 2005 (UTC)

I went by what has City status in the United Kingdom, which MK doesn't, which is why I put it in the towns and villages category. -- Joolz 15:04, 28 August 2005 (UTC)
You're right; I just checked. The confusing thing is that MK has been allowed to use the name «New City» on roadsigns, even though city status has not yet been granted. Cnyborg 15:46, 28 August 2005 (UTC)

Image:Butrint (city).jpgEdit

As far as I know, there's no city called Butrint in Albania. I think this great picture shows us the village of Ksamil. Could you please give some more details?
Thx, Albinfo 18:35, 26 December 2005 (UTC)

The image was taken from the island of Corfu, the lake behind the settlement is Lake Butrint (according to the map I've been using at least). My map does show a place called Butrint and I originally identified the settlement as being in the same area as where Butrint is marked on my map, it took me a great deal of time to do that, however I've had a second look (this time with the help of Google Earth) and it does appear that you're right that it does look that Ksamil is the more likely target - I'll reupload the image with the correct details. -- Joolz 17:41, 2 January 2006 (UTC)
Great - I always wondered how Albania looks like from Pantokrator! Thanks for the images. I just now discovered Image:Pantokrator_1.jpg.
I was asking for some more details because maybe I could have done some of the research. Looking at the biger picture, it's clear that it is the village of Ksamil. Butrint is marked on many maps, but it's not more then some greek and roman ruins - no modern settlement at all. You even can see Butrint castle on the picture as white spot in the green hill where Butrint channels vanishes behind the hills. —Albinfo 21:42, 2 January 2006 (UTC)

Added your picture to the article about en:Ksamil. —Albinfo 21:55, 2 January 2006 (UTC)

Commons-l subscriptionEdit

Hello Joolz,

as per Commons talk:Administrators, I am asking all admins to subscribe to commons-l, a mailing list for Wikimedia Commons policy and project discussion. Since many admins are only on Commons infrequently, this is a good way to alert people about important happenings. The mailing list is nominally multilingual, but predominantly English.

If you are already subscribed to commons-l, I apologize for bothering you, and you are free to ignore this message. If you don't want to use your regular e-mail account, feel free to leave me a message, and I can send you a GMail invite. Traffic on the mailing list is relatively low, and we do not expect admins to read all messages to the list, but it would be nice if you could check on it at least every few weeks. Thanks for your time,--Eloquence 23:05, 4 July 2006 (UTC)

Admin newsEdit

Hello,

If you consent for statistics to be published about your actions as an administrator, please sign here: Commons:Administrator permission for statistics. (I expect that most people will not have a problem with it unless you are especially concerned with privacy.)

Also, please be aware that we now have a Commons:Administrators' noticeboard. Please put it on your watchlist, if you haven't already!

cheers, pfctdayelise (translate?) 05:33, 7 September 2006 (UTC) P.S.: Pardon if this is a repeat (bot debugging...)

Hello, Joolz!

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.
