Hello, Sandcat01!

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.

Cape Verde mapsEdit

I have vectorial versions of the images (didn't know how to convert them to SVG back then). It would probably be best to use them instead. It's something I should have got around to do, but there are so many pending tasks :) I'm going to upload them now. They're only outlines, feel free to enhance them.

They're great. I don't need them for anything, I was just browsing Category:Images for cleanup looking for something to do.
Sorry about the mixup, I'm still new here. -- Sandcat01 (talk) 01:59, 16 August 2010 (UTC)
It's ok :) just make sure to ask first next time, to save yourself and others the extra work :) Cheers, Waldir talk 15:18, 16 August 2010 (UTC)
