Our first steps tour and our frequently asked questions will help you a lot after registration. They explain how to customize the interface (for example the language), how to upload files and our basic licensing policy (Wikimedia Commons only accepts free content). You don't need technical skills in order to contribute here. Be bold contributing here and assume good faith for the intentions of others. This is a wiki — it is really easy.
More information is available at the community portal. You may ask questions at the help desk, village pump or on IRC channel #wikimedia-commons (webchat). You can also contact an administrator on their talk page. If you have a specific copyright question, ask at the copyright village pump.
Actually anyone can close a non-controversial keep -- see Commons:Deletion_requests#Instructions_for_administrators for policy and instructions. The nominator is the perfect one to close if he decides to withdraw it.
BTW, I sympathize with your frustration, although I don't understand the mechanics well enough to have an opinion on this one. The concept that we should keep a wrong drawing just because it's in use -- often put there by the person who drew it -- seems a little off. Jim . . . .

- Huh, I had looked at that section and still missed it. Well, thanks for your note and thanks for closing the deletion request. Yeah, I will make an attempt to fix the image if appropriate after the debate is resolved here: wikipedia:Talk:Axial_precession_(astronomy)#Cause. It probably won't be nearly as pretty as the one that's there now, though. :) ErikHaugen (talk) 00:59, 17 June 2010 (UTC)
