Hello, Thomas Good!

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.

Please do not dump all your images in to Category:PoliticsEdit

At least try to find a more correct category for these images, for instance Category:Politics of the United States. Thank you. - Takeaway (talk) 06:47, 26 May 2010 (UTC)

Tip on using the {{Information}} templateEdit

Hi Thomas Good,

Thanks for your contributions to Commons. Lots of great photos. I see you've been using two aspects (specific attribution requirement and an OTRS-permission template) that I would recommend you specify differently in order to be recognized properly by automated processes.

Instead of:

== {{int:filedesc}} ==
{{Information
|Description    = ...
|Source         = ...
|Author         = ...
|Date           =
|Permission     = GFDL: Attribution REQUIRED "Thomas Altfather Good"
|other_versions =
}}
== {{int:license-header}} ==
{{self|cc-by-sa-3.0|GFDL}}
{{PermissionOTRS|ticket=https://secure.wikimedia.org/otrs/index.pl?Action=AgentTicketZoom&TicketID=2374666}}

Use the following:

== {{int:filedesc}} ==
{{Information
|Description    = ...
|Source         = ...
|Author         = ...
|Date           =
|Permission     = {{PermissionOTRS|ticket=https://ticket.wikimedia.org/otrs/index.pl?Action=AgentTicketZoom&TicketID=2374666}}
|other_versions =
}}

== {{int:license-header}} ==
{{self|cc-by-sa-3.0|GFDL|attribution=Thomas Altfather Good}}

Note:

  • {{PermissionOTRS}} in the "Permission"-parameter of {{Information}} (instead of under the License header, OTRS-permission is not part of a license)
  • The attribution moved to the "attribution"-parameter of the License template. This way the attribution will be associated with the license.

If you have any questions, feel free to ask me here. Thanks! –Krinkletalk 20:32, 6 December 2011 (UTC)
