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.

- Hi , this mu picture , I took this picture , why remove Hamaredha (talk) 10:16, 3 October 2018 (UTC)
- @Hamaredha: The picture was removed because according to Iraqi copyright law, all government works (including ballots) are copyrighted for 50 years after publication. Only non-copyrighted files are permitted on Wikimedia Commons. If you want to upload a copyrighted file, you can do so on individual Wikipedia sites, but they must be uploaded to each site (different languages) separately. If you have any other questions, feel free to ask, or visit the Village pump. HapHaxion (talk) 18:13, 3 October 2018 (UTC)
File:Turkish polls 2023.png requires updatingEdit
Hey! Indeed it does. I have just returned home from a year in Turkey (where Wikipedia is blocked, so I have only had limited access to it). This means I will have the chance to update the file, and I will probably do so over the next few days. Cheers! Μαρκος Δ (talk) 19:32, 5 July 2019 (UTC)
