Commons:Project scope/Pages, galleries and categories/zh
Technical note: this section relates to all content on Commons except that within the "File:" and "User:" namespaces.
The purpose of pages, galleries and categories is to support Commons' aims. Any page/gallery/category that does not fulfill that purpose is out of scope. Galleries and categories having no media file content are generally considered out of scope unless there is a particular reason for retaining them (e.g. a useful redirect).
Allowable page/gallery/category content
- Educationally useful, classified collections of images or other files, along with small amounts of explanatory text.
- Text relating to Commons projects, help, policy, guidelines, licensing, copyright information and so on. All such text must be made available under the Creative Commons Attribution-ShareAlike 3.0 License and the GNU Free Documentation Licence
- Operational pages, such as templates and the like, including Commons-operational program listings.
Non-allowable page/gallery/category content
- Content that does not advance Commons' aims, including advertising, self-promotion, and anything apparently created and/or uploaded for the purpose of vandalism or attack.
User pages, galleries and categories
Technical note: this section relates to pages within the User: namespace, in other words to pages having a name which starts "User:", and also to user categories.
Allowable user page/gallery/category content
User pages are generally reserved for personal profiles and information relevant to the user's contributions to Commons. All text must be made available under the Creative Commons Attribution-ShareAlike 3.0 license and GNU Free Documentation Licence.
Personal galleries/categories are allowed provided the individual files are within scope, as described above. The project scope includes some images that are not educationally useful, including e.g. a photo of the Commons' user.
Non-allowable user page/gallery/category content
- Private image or other file collections of no wider educational value.
- Content that does not advance Commons' aims, including advertising or excessive linking to external domains and anything apparently created and/or uploaded for the purpose of vandalism or attack. Blatant self-promotion is prohibited, but regular Commons contributors are allowed a certain amount of leeway and discreet links to relevant web pages elsewhere are normally permitted.
