Hello, Kognos!

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.

Thank you!Edit

Hi Kognos,

Thank you very much for your work scanning out-of-copyright full sheet Ordnance Survey One Inch Seventh Series mapping.

To let you know, there are current projects on SABRE Maps (https://www.sabre-roads.org.uk/maps/) to georeference and freely publish every revision of every out-of-copyright sheet of the OS One Inch Seventh Series, OS Quarter Inch Fifth Series, OS Route Planning (and the previous Ten Mile Road Map of Great Britain), and OS Ministry of Transport Road Map for all to freely enjoy - and your map scans are proving to be an extremely useful addition at "filling in the gaps". We'd love to get you on board with this if you would be interested. 81.92.203.205 07:42, 24 March 2018 (UTC)

Thanks for the link. I've taken a look, but it seems like a rather closed site - you can view maps but not download anything. I think I'll focus on getting stuff into Wikimedia, where public domain really means public, and let you use this material how you wish. Kognos (talk) 10:53, 31 March 2018 (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.

Whoops, a typo in the license template. Should now be correct.Kognos (talk) 20:32, 23 February 2019 (UTC)
