Thanks for reverting the vandalism to File:Seattle - P-I Building 01.jpg. Is there any way to get that vandalism out of the history? I'm a bit concerned about someone possibly stumbling across that if they go to access my photo. - Jmabel ! talk 22:51, 24 March 2009 (UTC)
- You'll have to talk to someone who is an admin here on commons. I'm only an admin on en.wiki, so I can't delete revs here. Sorry. FWIW, I was a bit startled when I went to the P-I page and saw that photo. My first thought was template vandalism on en.wiki, but it was just vandalism to that photo.

Tip: Categorizing imagesEdit
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.
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]]
When picking categories, try to choose a specific category ("Astronomical diagrams") over a generic one ("Illustrations"). Pro-tip: The CommonSense tool can help you find the best category for your image.
