Hello, 3s!

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:

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").

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.

Picture of the Year voting round 1 openEdit

Dear Wikimedians,

Wikimedia Commons is happy to announce that the 2012 Picture of the Year competition is now open. We're interested in your opinion as to which images qualify to be the Picture of the Year for 2012. Voting is open to established Wikimedia users who meet the following criteria:

  1. Users must have an account, at any Wikimedia project, which was registered before Tue, 01 Jan 2013 00:00:00 +0000 [UTC].
  2. This user account must have more than 75 edits on any single Wikimedia project before Tue, 01 Jan 2013 00:00:00 +0000 [UTC]. Please check your account eligibility at the POTY 2012 Contest Eligibility tool.
  3. Users must vote with an account meeting the above requirements either on Commons or another SUL-related Wikimedia project (for other Wikimedia projects, the account must be attached to the user's Commons account through SUL).

Hundreds of images that have been rated Featured Pictures by the international Wikimedia Commons community in the past year are all entered in this competition. From professional animal and plant shots to breathtaking panoramas and skylines, restorations of historically relevant images, images portraying the world's best architecture, maps, emblems, diagrams created with the most modern technology, and impressive human portraits, Commons features pictures of all flavors.

For your convenience, we have sorted the images into topic categories. Two rounds of voting will be held: In the first round, you can vote for as many images as you like. The first round category winners and the top ten overall will then make it to the final. In the final round, when a limited number of images are left, you must decide on the one image that you want to become the Picture of the Year.

To see the candidate images just go to the POTY 2012 page on Wikimedia Commons

Wikimedia Commons celebrates our featured images of 2012 with this contest. Your votes decide the Picture of the Year, so remember to vote in the first round by January 30, 2013.

Thanks,
the Wikimedia Commons Picture of the Year committee

Thanks for uploading File:Orgel inni.JPG. This media is missing permission information. A source is given, but there is no proof that the author or copyright holder agreed to license the file under the given license. Please provide a link to an appropriate webpage with license information, or send an email with copy of a written permission to OTRS (permissions-commons@wikimedia.org). This also applies if you are the author yourself.

Please see this page for more information on how to confirm permission, and Commons:Permission if you would like to understand why we ask for permission when uploading work that is not your own.

Unless the permission information is given, the file may be deleted after seven days. Thank you.

And also:

Yours sincerely, Green Giant (talk) 01:18, 23 August 2014 (UTC)

I have allready been through this on e-mail with Green Giant (talk · contribs) or one of the others in the admin staff. I have sent a written permission from the photographer to the permissions-mail. In it he releases this, and one other, picture under the license that I have given them when I uploaded them here. To claim, as it was said in the mail, that his explicit permission wasn't good enough proof that he knew what he was doing when he released the picture is just nonsense.
I said in the mail correspondance that I would not bug this person with this. He has given his permission, and I see no reason what-so-ever not to acknowledge this permission as it is. 3s (talk) 08:18, 27 August 2014 (UTC)
OTRS permission has been attached. No further action needed. Green Giant (talk) 14:20, 27 August 2014 (UTC)

Tagging copyviosEdit

Hi, When tagging copyright violations, please inform the uploader. This is best done using the gagdet. See in your preferences. Regards, Yann (talk) 11:59, 8 December 2015 (UTC)

I was not aware of that gadget, and I need to be more aware of alerting uploaders. Thank you for informing me about the gadget and reminding me about informing uploaders. I have turned on the gadget, so hopefully I will improve. Bw 3s (talk) 12:09, 8 December 2015 (UTC)

Hello. Yes you are right: the inclusion of {{Delete}} in Commons:Deletion requests/File:Thomas Camprock.jpg triggered this mess. {{Delete}} should only be included in the page of the file you want to delete, not in the deletion request page. Best regards, BrightRaven (talk) 10:44, 12 January 2016 (UTC)

Thank you. I'll try to remember it. I'm not doing things like this too often on Commons, so I easily go wrong, but I try to learn from my mistakes. 3s (talk) 10:47, 12 January 2016 (UTC)
No problem. By the way, I have deleted the file you pointed to, because it met the criteria for a speedy deletion. Best regards, BrightRaven (talk) 10:49, 12 January 2016 (UTC)

File:Hilde Opoku.jpgEdit

 
File:Hilde Opoku.jpg has been listed at Commons:Deletion requests so that the community can discuss whether it should be kept or not. We would appreciate it if you could go to voice your opinion about this at its entry.

If you created this file, please note that the fact that it has been proposed for deletion does not necessarily mean that we do not value your kind contribution. It simply means that one person believes that there is some specific problem with it, such as a copyright issue.

Please remember to respond to and – if appropriate – contradict the arguments supporting deletion. Arguments which focus on the nominator will not affect the result of the nomination. Thank you!
