Hello, Openbeelden!

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.

Stichting Natuurbeelden on Open ImagesEdit

Even it didn't look this way when the project page was started, now you got more than 50 suggestions. Thanks for this great offer. Mvg -- Rillke(q?) 16:38, 15 October 2012 (UTC)

Thank you for getting involved! We're very happy with the result. We will now try to get the 50 videos on Open Images as soon as possible, so they can be used on Wikimedia Commons. Openbeelden (talk)

Autopatrol givenEdit

Hello. I just wanted to let you know that I have granted autopatrol rights to your account; the reason for this is that I believe you are sufficiently trustworthy and experienced to have your contributions automatically sighted. This will have no effect on your editing, and is simply intended to help users watching Recent changes or Recent uploads to find unproductive edits amidst the productive ones. Thank you. -- Rillke(q?) 16:44, 22 October 2012 (UTC)

Waarom ?Edit

Hi, I am wondering why you add the category Category:Beeld en Geluid on Open Images to items that are already in Category:Media from Open Beelden. Moreover, it looks like you are adding mainly video files, not images/photos, to the Category:Beeld en Geluid on Open Images category. Something escapes me ? (Nederlands kan ook) --Foroa (talk) 10:24, 4 April 2013 (UTC)

Hi! The reason has to do with statistics. We use the BaGLAMa tool to track the reuse of the Open Images collection on Wikipedia, the data gathered by this tool gives us useful information on the reuse of our collections on Wikipedia. This is now done for Category:Media from Open Beelden. Recently we added some nature videos from the Stichting Natuurbeelden collection in. We would like to keep seperate statistics for these and the other material from Open Images. In the current situation this is not possible since the Natuurbeelden category is a subcategory of Category:Media from Open Beelden. This means that the statistics for Category:Media from Open Beelden will include the Natuurbeelden category. So we thought it was best to move these items to a category that is on the same level. This also in the case other collections will be added to Wikipedia via Open Images in the future. Then we will be able to track those seperately. The media that we place in Category:Beeld en Geluid on Open Images are mainly Polygoon newsreels that come from Open Images and photos that are made of screenshots from these videos.
I can see your need, but I have a problem on categories with names that don't correspond with a real category system. Please use proper and logical category names and don't call a category "xxx ... images" that needs to contain videos. Anyway, sooner or later, a person will come along and collapse (quite rightly) the redundant categories in one single one as there is no logic documented. --Foroa (talk) 08:11, 5 April 2013 (UTC)
Open Images is the English name for our Open Beelden platform, so the name refers to the platform, not so much to the sort of media used in the category. Do you have a better suggestion?
There is no problem with the name as such, the problem is that there are two categories Category:Beeld en Geluid on Open Images and Category:Media from Open Beelden, and the first one (... images) contain a subset (a number of videos) of the first one without any discernible logic or relation to the category names. --Foroa (talk) 09:41, 5 April 2013 (UTC)
Ah, I think I get your point. If I rename and Category:Beeld en Geluid on Open Images to 'Stichting Natuurbeelden on Open Beelden' and 'Beeld en Geluid on Open Beelden', will that help? Not all media on Open Images comes from Beeld en Geluid, other archives or users can also upload their media. So the contents of Category:Beeld en Geluid on Open Images and will not be entirely the same. Openbeelden (talk) 10:02, 5 April 2013 (UTC)
