File:Armorial Wijnbergen.jpgEdit

Hello. Thank you for your encouragement. I will try to do the same for other files if I can. Best regards, BrightRaven (talk) 20:23, 11 October 2010 (UTC)

Henry JermynEdit

Hello. You uploaded this image. Someone on English Wikipedia says that it isn't of the man you named (Henry Jermyn, 1st Earl of St Albans, see article history, the user is Anthony). I noticed the source weblink is dead. Any idea what should be done? If we can't figure out who it is maybe it ought to be deleted. I Googled the earl and found that a number of websites have taken that pic from wikipedia, so if it's wrong then we're spreading misinformation.--Brianann MacAmhlaidh (talk) 06:07, 28 May 2011 (UTC)
I don't know how to delete files, but wouldn't object to your doing so. Sorry to upload something incorrectly - I blame that crappy website. Good catch on your part. Adam sk (talk) 04:46, 1 June 2011 (UTC)

Hello, Brianann MacAmhlaidh!

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]]

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.

Hi, sry I have forgot about it. I wont have the time to make such a map mid-term. Maybe you can use a part of the Arctic Ocean relief map? --Alexrk2 (talk) 11:52, 20 September 2011 (UTC)

Seeking some advice — Gaelic characters/typefaceEdit

Gday Brianann. I hope that you don't mind me intruding on your talk page, however, you seem to have both an interest and knowledge in this space. Over at English Wikisource, I am reproducing File:Irish Lexicography.djvu and I am confronted by pages like s:Page:Irish Lexicography.djvu/20 with all its Gaelic typeface characters. My issue is that even if I can find all the typeface characters somewhere in Unicode, that I know that I don't have that extended-D range of characters on my PC, and even if I did, others won't. Do you know if there is a set of Gaelic characters around, even in image form, that we can/could use. My (useless) search doesn't turn up much, and I cannot even find that we have someone who may have built a <gallery>. Thanks.  — billinghurst sDrewth 09:18, 7 January 2012 (UTC)

Hi sDrewth. I'm sorry but I don't completely understand the fonts/scripts and unicode very well, so I'm not going to be much help to you! A couple pictures I uploaded were made using a free font I downloaded from here (I think): [1]. I don't know how to actually type the letters ḃ ċ ḋ ḟ ġ ṁ ṗ ṡ ṫ, but on Wikipedia I can find these letters in the graphical interface under 'special characters' part (some are listed in 'Latin' and other are listed in 'Latin extended'). With that font installed, I just copy-and-pasted the particular 'dotted' letters I needed and the font rendered them as they should appear in a Gaelic script.
I think Angr has cleaned up the page you linked to. The letters that appear in the old Gaelic scripts as ḃ ċ ḋ ḟ ġ ṁ ṗ ṡ ṫ are usually rendered as bh ch dh fh gh mh ph st th in Latin script (see Irish_orthography#Diacritics). That's what Angr has done, I think. I recognise him from Wikipedia:Reference_desk/Language, and as a contributor in more than a few talkpages I've got watch-listed on Wikipedia - he knows his stuff. He would be a good person to look for more info on how to tackle a book with Gaelic script in it.--Brianann MacAmhlaidh (talk) 10:29, 8 January 2012 (UTC)
Thanks for your thoughts. It was worth a try. :-)  — billinghurst sDrewth 11:18, 9 January 2012 (UTC)

Picture of the Year 2013 R2 AnnouncementEdit

Round 2 of Picture of the Year 2013 is open!Edit

2012 Picture of the Year: A pair of European Bee-eaters in Ariège, France.

Dear Wikimedians,

Wikimedia Commons is happy to announce that the second round of the 2013 Picture of the Year competition is now open. This year will be the eighth edition of the annual Wikimedia Commons photo competition, which recognizes exceptional contributions by users on Wikimedia Commons. Wikimedia users are invited to vote for their favorite images featured on Commons during the last year (2013) to produce a single Picture of the Year.

Hundreds of images that have been rated Featured Pictures by the international Wikimedia Commons community in the past year were entered in this competition. These images include professional animal and plant shots, breathtaking panoramas and skylines, restorations of historical images, photographs portraying the world's best architecture, impressive human portraits, and so much more.

There are two total rounds of voting. In the first round, you voted for as many images as you liked. The top 30 overall and the most popular image in each category have continued to the final. In the final round, you may vote for just one image to become the Picture of the Year.

Round 2 will end on . Click here to learn more and vote »
