Hello, Migrant!

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.

File:Wang Beixing skating.JPGEdit

Hi Migrant! Usually we should upload cropped version with a diferente name (like File:Wang Beixing skating (cropped).JPG) to keep the original file. If the edited/cropped version of the file is very close to the original (just an enhacement), then we can overwrite the files. =) Giro720 (talk) 21:01, 3 September 2011 (UTC)

Okay, I'm sorry. I'm a fairly new user of Commons, but I thought a new version like that was okay... but I'll take notice of that and will act in order by that message. Thanks for putting it right for me. :-) Sorry for my not that developed english. I've been a bit low on typing it for a while, so it is kinda rusty. My aim is to get more and hopefully better files in this database of illustrations either by Pictures, videos, or sound from my part of interests in life, which is my nearby neighbourhood, Ice Speed skating, and Football related themes. Allthough I would be guessing it would be mostly pictures. Which I hope you already can see from my user page. --Migrant (talk) 21:25, 3 September 2011 (UTC)

Kees BroekmanEdit

Hei, jeg ser at det nylig har blitt lastet opp en rekke nederlandske skøytebilder, jeg la noen av dem i Category:Kees Broekman, men det er langt flere bilder som er lastet opp. De trenger kategorisering - noe for deg? - mvh 4ing (talk) 21:31, 8 January 2018 (UTC)

Jo takker, for god melding, skal kikke litt på det utover. Jeg har allerede kikket på opplastingene fra Bruker:Mr.Nostalgic fra ca. kl. 2100 ikveld den 8. januar og tilbake til og med hele 7. januar ved midnatt mellom den 6. og 7. januar og klikker meg bakover etterhvert. Er det bare mr.Nostalgic som har lastet opp eller er det flere som har lastet opp skøytebilder i det siste ? Med vennlig hilsen Migrant (talk) 02:05, 9 January 2018 (UTC)
Nei, ikke som kjenner til. - 4ing (talk) 05:36, 9 January 2018 (UTC)
Oki, den er grei. Med vennlig hilsen Migrant (talk) 14:54, 9 January 2018 (UTC)

Please do not edit warEdit

Deutsch | English | Français | Magyar | Italiano | Português | Sicilianu | +/−

You currently appear to be participating in an edit war (at Category:Miho Takagi). Users are expected to collaborate with others, and once it is known that there is a disagreement should discuss the issues on the relevant talk page rather than repeatedly undoing other users’ contributions. If necessary you can ask for more input at Commons:Dispute resolution. In some cases it may be appropriate to ask for temporary page protection. If you continue to edit war, you may be blocked from editing – even if you are right about the content issue.

Dear Migrant, You might be interested in this photograph: Vysotsky (talk) 23:33, 11 April 2018 (UTC)

Thanks, will find an article to add it to in no:wp. Migrant (talk) 23:37, 11 April 2018 (UTC)
And some more pics via this string. Vysotsky (talk) 23:56, 11 April 2018 (UTC)
Thanks but I'm more into speed skating, which I also hear is quite popular in the Netherlands... :) But anyway thanks for the search string will use that for other things... :) Best regards Migrant (talk) 00:01, 12 April 2018 (UTC)
