Hello, Malost!

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]]

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.

Sextius CalvinusEdit

Thanks for contributing your photo of the Gaius Sextius Calvinus relief, and for placing it on his page on the English WP. Cynwolfe (talk) 18:15, 2 September 2010 (UTC)


Hallo Malost, is it possible for you to upload the single pictures of File:Musee_Granet_by_Malost.jpg? Your stitching is not done well and we could redo it. Best just upload all to one file name: upload the first pic, then all following pics by using "upload a new file version" on the file's page. Cheers --Saibo (Δ) 21:22, 14 February 2011 (UTC)

Hello Saibo. Thank you for your message. I know this picture wasn't stitched well. I did it a bit too fast through Photoshop and the original picture deserved to be improved. I did'nt understand very well what you said to me. Do you ask to upload the original picture so that you can improve it ? I can do it. Cheers. Malost (talk) 10:57, 15 February 2011 (UTC)
Hi again, thanks for your reply! Yes, I (respectivly the guys at dewp photo workshop) want to improve it. So it would be great if you could upload the original pictures.
I just meant to upload them under one single file name. Like it was done here: File:Lindenstumpf,_Einzelbilder.jpg. Cheers --Saibo (Δ) 12:35, 15 February 2011 (UTC)
Or, maybe even better: Just use "upload a new version" at your current file: click here once for every single original image. When you've uploaded all original images just revert to the first file version. Cheers --Saibo (Δ) 14:15, 15 February 2011 (UTC)
OK Saibo, I'll do it this evening. Thank you. Malost (talk) 10:53, 16 February 2011 (UTC)
I've just uploaded the original version. Cheers. Malost (talk) 18:48, 16 February 2011 (UTC)

Thanks and sorry - we did confuse your retouching attempt with a bad stitching. Therefore you did not understand my first question

However, thank you for the original - we will see if we can improve it. Cheers --Saibo (Δ) 20:51, 16 February 2011 (UTC)

Hôtel Ripert de Monclar on the Rue Roux-AlphéranEdit

Hello. Could you please take a picture of the Hôtel Ripert de Monclar on the Rue Roux-Alphéran in Aix? I'd like to add it to my page of Jean-Pierre-François de Ripert-Monclar on wikipedia. I wonder if this man also lived there btw. Thanks.Zigzig20s (talk) 10:45, 11 December 2013 (UTC)

Also, Rue Pavillon for Pierre Pavillon (created his page on the English wikipedia yesterday). I could ask for more if you're still around, but not if you are?Zigzig20s (talk) 13:50, 14 December 2013 (UTC)
