Hello, CrossHouses!

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.

Fair UseEdit

What are you on about 'Fair Use' with the photograph of Wrexham & Shropshire First Class interior with Andy Hamilton, MD? --Peter Skuce (talk) 16:36, 13 March 2010 (UTC)

Further to Peter's comments, please be careful when using templates. I see nothing to suggest fair use is relevant here. I've asked Zirland, the deleting admin, to consider restoring this image. At that point, if anyone still feels it should be deleted then that can be discussed properly in a deletion request. Adambro (talk) 16:54, 13 March 2010 (UTC)
I was unsure what to use but this image needs deleting, Andy Hamilton did not give permission for his image to be used here. Adambro could you help with nomination for deletion? CrossHouses (talk) 14:13, 14 March 2010 (UTC)
Well currently there is nothing to delete. I had requested the deleting admin to consider restoring it but you seemed to have removed that from their talk page. Please be more careful. Adambro (talk) 14:55, 14 March 2010 (UTC)

Why doesn't Andy Hamilton wish me to use the photo that I took of him - it's a bit bizarre. --Peter Skuce (talk) 22:02, 14 March 2010 (UTC)

He has merely requested I remove this image. CrossHouses (talk) 23:25, 14 March 2010 (UTC)

I've asked that this image be restored. Adambro (talk) 17:23, 29 May 2010 (UTC)

There seems to be a problem regarding the description and/or licensing of this particular file. It has been found that you've added in the image's description only a Template that's not a license and although it provides useful information about the image, it's not a valid license. Could you please resolve this problem, adding the license in the image linked above? You can edit the description page and change the text. Uploading a new version of the file does not change the description of the file. This page may give you more hints on which license to choose. Thank you.

Thanks for uploading File:Minsterley-logo.png. I notice that the file page either doesn't contain enough information about the license or it contains contradictory information about the license, so the copyright status is unclear.

If you created this file yourself, then you must provide a valid copyright tag. For example, you can tag it with {{self|GFDL|cc-by-sa-all}} to release it under the multi-license GFDL plus Creative Commons Attribution-ShareAlike All-version license or you can tag it with {{PD-self}} to release it into the public domain. (See Commons:Copyright tags for the full list of license tags that you can use.)

If you did not create the file yourself or if it is a derivative of another work that is possibly subject to copyright protection, then you must specify where you found it (e.g. usually a link to the web page where you got it), you must provide proof that it has a license that is acceptable for Commons (e.g. usually a link to the terms of use for content from that page), and you must add an appropriate license tag. If you did not create the file yourself and the specific source and license information is not available on the web, you must obtain permission through the OTRS system and follow the procedure described there.

Note that any unsourced or improperly licensed files will be deleted one week after they have been marked as lacking proper information, as described in criteria for deletion. If you have uploaded other files, please confirm that you have provided the proper information for those files, too. If you have any questions about licenses please ask at Commons:Village pump/Copyright or see our help pages. Thank you.

Yours sincerely, JuTa 02:43, 9 June 2019 (UTC)

SVG (Scalable Vector Graphics)Edit

Thank you for uploading some images! Did you know that Wikimedia Commons recommends the SVG (Scalable Vector Graphics) format for certain types of images? Scalable Vector Graphics are designed to look appropriate at any scale, and SVG images are easier to modify and translate, helping Wikimedia to distribute knowledge to all of the world. A lot of modern programs support SVG export. If you encountered problems or have questions, don't hesitate to ask me, a member of the Graphic Lab, or the Graphics village pump. Uploading images in SVG format isn't mandatory, but it would help. (To avoid any misunderstandings, please don't just put raster images into a svg container as embedded raster.) Thanks, and happy editing!
