- Dank je. Ik heb al aardig wat artikelen over plaatsen in Zuid-Holland ingesproken. Intussen heb ik ook alle plaatsen in Flevoland ingesproken, en heb ik een beginnetje gemaakt aan Noord-Holland (Behalve Amsterdam, die plaats heb ik al eerder ingesproken). Ik maak nu een doorstart aan Zuid-Holland. Gebruiker:Jcb heeft de artikelen over plaatsen in Gelderland en Utrecht voor zijn rekening genomen. Groet, VR-Land. --VR-Land (talk) 17:26, 12 September 2010 (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. –Krinkletalk 16:36, 11 November 2010 (UTC)
Tip: Categorizing imagesEdit
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.
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]]
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.

Oh, hi VR-LandEdit
Just to let you know that I've edited File:Tommy Wiseau.ogg to remove your funny "oh, hey Johnny, what's up?" asides from the section titles. I hope this was a one-off and you haven't been adding little one-liners into every article you've recorded. --McGeddon (talk) 08:50, 12 October 2011 (UTC)
