Hello, Tagishsimon!

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.

File:Sancus.pngEdit

Please, we're not writing an encyclopedia. File descriptions should be a few sentences or a paragraph at most. If more information is required, simply link to the relevant Wikipedia article, or another source.  — Mike.lifeguard | @en.wb 21:13, 4 February 2009 (UTC)

Please help replace this outdated licenseEdit

Hello!

Thank you for donating images to the Wikimedia Commons. You have uploaded some images in the past with the license {{PD}}. While this was a license acceptable in the early days of Wikimedia, since January 2006, this license has been deprecated and since October 2008 no new uploads with this license was allowed.

The license on older images should be replaced with a better and more specific license/permissions and you can help by checking the images and adding {{PD-self}} if you are the author or one of the other templates that you can see in the template on the image page.

Thank you for your help. If you need help feel free to ask at Commons talk:Licensing or contact User:Zscout370.

The images we would like you to check are:

Categories for: File:London_map_showing_Shakespearean_theatres.pngEdit

Hello Tagishsimon,
I've stumbled over your uploaded Image finding the tag "Uncategorized|year=2012|month=March|day=14".
So I've added some text and some categories ...

  • Category:Old maps of London
  • Category:Theatres in London
  • Category:Shakespearean theatre

... and removed the tag.
Hope the last 2 categories will not be seen as "Over-categorization"; I think, they're appropriate here as the map is showing a nice overview of historic shakespearean theatres.

Only land mapEdit

Hello. Many thanks for File:Larnaca - OpenStreetMap.png. Can I ask you one more thing? I need the same map with just the land. Nothing else. For example in File:Cyprus adm (–1960) location map.svg you can see only the land. Can we do that for Larnaca area? If yes, can you explain me how? Xaris333 (talk) 19:09, 17 October 2016 (UTC)

Short answer: don't know, {{u|Xaris333]]. I had a look around but have not yet found an open-source map provider offering this; I suspect it might be a job for a grahics specialist ... which is not me. I'm just a stealer of other people's maps. That said, I may have a go and if I do I'll come back to you. --Tagishsimon (talk) 16:25, 18 October 2016 (UTC)

Hello. In this site [2] you can see a political map of Cyprus with all municipalities and all villages. Can you use it to create the same map for Commons? Xaris333 (talk) 20:46, 22 December 2016 (UTC)

I cannot; sorry @Xaris333:. The map on the site is as far as I can deduce copyrighted & unavailable under a free licence. I have not the skills to transfer the information in the map toa free map. :( --Tagishsimon (talk) 00:38, 23 December 2016 (UTC)
