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.
I'm not sure what lb is exactly, but thanks for the sitenotice localization. Can you also do the same for the script the notice relates to? You can edit User:Rd232/myuploads.js directly or leave a note at User talk:Rd232/myuploads.js. cheers, Rd232 (talk) 22:42, 26 August 2011 (UTC)

I am now proud owner of a TUSC account!
- As there is much more expertise on 'licensing' of pictures I suggesteed it here, I had the intention to just follow the decision taken on commons on lb-wikipedia. But you are right there is no reason not to nominate theis file as well for deletion on lb-wikipedia an dI wil do so right now. --Robby (talk) 20:34, 26 May 2013 (UTC)
Hello. I just wanted to let you know that I have granted autopatrol rights to your account; the reason for this is that I believe you are sufficiently trustworthy and experienced to have your contributions automatically sighted. This has no effect on your editing, it is simply intended to help users watching Recent changes or Recent uploads to find unproductive edits amidst the productive ones like yours. In addition, you can now share images from Flickr using the UploadWizard, batch-upload up to 500 files with UploadWizard instead of 50 and upload freely licensed audio files in the MP3 format. Thank you. INeverCry (talk) 01:18, 12 July 2013 (UTC)
Thank you for your message. I was not aware that it was creating issues. Could you please show me in the Hirasawa Kurō category how it should be done correctly so I can follow the format going forward? I do know that one of the issue on Commons is that Commons categories sometimes get linked to a corresponding Wiki article, even though a separate category exists for it at the same time. Categories should be linked to categegories and articles to articles, but in case there is no corresponding category can an article be enough?
Hello Robby, as you can see here I added a Commonscat-template on the en-wiki immediately after creating the category here. My experience is that pretty soon after that Wikidata will be updated by a bot that will add that commons category to the Q-item and then also the interwiki becomes available here. - Robotje (talk) 11:15, 26 August 2018 (UTC)
Hi Robby, Thanks for your advice. In fact I have not been putting in Wikidata myself because someone with a sharp eye has been supplying Wikidata boxes on almost all my new categories. That is why I only put the link - to serve as a time-saver for that person (or persons). On this one you just happened to catch it just after I created the category but before the wikidata box was added. It's division of labor. Someone obviously is specializing in Wikidata so I suggest we let that person take care of it. I've put in a lot of such links but they never last very long. So what you are doing there in reverting my temporary link is depriving the Wikidata person and the general public of a labor-saving device. I will not contest your reversion. I do suggest you not revert any more. It's a waste of your time - adding an unnecessary step to the process. The time can be best spent on something else. Team work.
