Hello, El.!

Tip: Add categories to your images

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"). Pro-tip: The CommonSense tool can help you find the best category for your image.

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:Yarrow boiler, end view in hull (Heat Engines, 1913).jpg‎;[edit]

Please stop duplicating the filenames into the description. Andy Dingley (talk) 11:56, 14 September 2009 (UTC)

The template does this automatically. The template also identifies those that haven't had a full description added and categorizes these for later fix-up (as a sub-cat of the book's cat). If a minimal description (e.g. a duplicate of the filename) is added, then this process breaks and it's no longer possible to see which images still need real useful descriptions adding.
Besides which, the images already have good structured and meaningful filenames. These minimal descriptions aren't adding anything beyond that.

There seems to be a problem regarding the description and/or licensing of this particular file. It has been found that you've added in the image's description only a Template that's not a license and although it provides useful information about the image, it's not a valid license. Could you please resolve this problem, adding the license in the image linked above? You can edit the description page and change the text. Uploading a new version of the file does not change the description of the file. This page may give you more hints on which license to choose. Thank you.

File:C.K. Holliday at New Orleans Square.jpg[edit]

If you want to change the name of this file, re-upload it under the correct name. The tag the incorrectly-named image with {{bad name|CORRECT NAME GOES HERE}}. The old image should then be speedily deleted. I would also recommend noting that it has had the bad name template applied at its deletions request page, just to keep it clear.

Fixing deletion requests[edit]

Hi El, and thanks for your help with the deletion requests. A few pointers, I hope you don't mind.

  • When fixing a deletion request, add in the name/time of the person nominating it for deletion. You can find this info in the history of the page, you can copy/paste from there.
  • Also if there is no reason given, maybe they give a reason in the edit summary that you can use.
  • If you find a deletion request that has no reason on it, you can remove the template. State in the edit summary "no reason given". When I did what you're doing, I also left a message with who-ever nominated it saying I had removed the template, but that they were free to nominate it again as long as they gave a reason.
  • If you find that it's a "delete" template, but it is actually a duplicate, you can change the tag to {{duplicate|name of other file}}.
  • And most importantly, if you have any opinion on whether it should go / it should stay / why you think it was nominated, please say so! In German if you want - we can all use Google Translate :)

Keep it up though - I'm adding info to your fixes where I find them.

Ich möchte mein Deutsch war gut genug, um die oben für Sie in Deutsch sagen, aber ich brauchte Google Translate, dieses Stück für mich zu tun!

Kind regards, -- Deadstar (msg) 19:37, 28 September 2009 (UTC)

Hallo Deadstar, vielen Dank für die Nachricht, ich habe sie mit Google Translate übersetzt, mein Englisch ist miserabel. Bisher kannte ich Google Translate nicht, Danke dafür. Vielen Dank auch für die Hinweise für die Arbeit an den deletion requests, in Zukunft werde ich mich gerne danach richten. Dazu habe ich einige Fragen:
  • Wenn kein Grund angegeben ist und das Template entfernt wird: 1. Kannst Du mir einen Text (am Besten in Englisch) geben für den Hinweis, dass erneut gelöscht werden kann, falls es dafür einen Grund gibt. 2. Wo soll dieser Hinweis angebracht werden?
  • Wie ist denn bisher diese Arbeit getan worden. Ist das, was ich da mache, sinnvoll?

Viele Grüße --El-Bardo (talk) 10:41, 29 September 2009 (UTC)

Hi El-Bardo! What you have done so far with the deletion requests is very useful. The imcomplete requests would never be looked at again otherwise (well, until someone else does what you're doing!) To indicate that you're just fixing a request, you can add Fixing request ~~~~ or something like that instead of the long sentence you paste in now. But feel free to do it your way, it works just fine!
For the "no reason given": Check template, edit history and talk page for any clues to why it is nominated. If there is nothing, and I also could see no reason I used to remove the template from the image, stating in the edit summary "Removing deletion template - no reason given". And then I would go to the nominator's talk page, and say something along the lines of:
==[[:File:Name of file.jpg]]==
You requested the above file for deletion but you did not give a reason. Without a reason the request cannot be processed, and I have taken the deletion template off the image. Feel free to nominate the file for deletion again, but please make sure you give a reason and follow all the steps on the template so it can be processed. You can also use the "Nominate for deletion" link on the left which will automate the process for you. Thanks, ~~~~
That should save us all a bit of guess work. And if they really want it deleted, they can nominate it again. If it is an IP-address (not a registered user) that placed the deletion template, I would just remove the template. No point in notifying the IP-user. If they come back, they can see in the history that it was removed because there was no reason given.
I hope that answers your question. Let me know if you have any other questions. Viele Grüße -- Deadstar (msg) 15:10, 29 September 2009 (UTC)

Hi Deadstar, thank you for your helpful message. Now, I´ll do my very best... Kind regards --El-Bardo (talk) 16:42, 29 September 2009 (UTC)

Einordnung Luftbilder Klippeneck[edit]

Hallo El.

Vielen Dank für Deine Arbeit mit der Neukategorisierung meiner Luftbilder aus dem Donautal und vom Klippeneck!

Gruss Simisa

Bitteschön, keine Ursache. Übrigens: Kennst Du schon: Help:Gadget-ImageAnnotator? Geht im Prinzip bei den meisten Bildern. Unterhalb des Bildes ist eine Taste "Notiz hinzufügen" sowie ein Fragezeichen , mit dem man das auch testen kann (Sandbox). Als Hersteller der Fotos hast Du sicher jede Menge weiterer Infos. Ist nur eine Anregung meinerseits. Gruß --El-Bardo (talk) 16:05, 2 October 2009 (UTC)

Mit Verlaub, ich glaube es ist besser, wenn Du aus der Category:Dentistry herausbleibst, bevor noch mehr durcheinander ist. Gruß, --R. Engelhardt (talk) 21:56, 12 December 2009 (UTC)

Hallo Engelhardt, es war nicht meine Absicht, etwas durcheinander zu bringen. Meine Aktivität geht auch in eine andere Richtung: Category:Medical equipment. Hier gibts jede Menge nicht einsortierter Bilder, auch von Zahnspangen. Wenn Du mir sagst, was falsch gelaufen ist, kann ich das in Zukunft vermeiden, man lernt ja nie aus... --El. (talk) 15:00, 13 December 2009 (UTC)
Hallo, ist ja alles nicht so tragisch. Ich habe die Angelegenheit schon geregelt und die Gelegenheit genutzt, auch vieles andere in dieser Category in Ordnung zu bringen (bin aber noch nicht fertig), nachdem ich das schon einmal im Januar 2009 gemacht hatte. Einerseits sind natürlich viele Bilder hinzugekommen, andererseits machen es sich viele aber auch sehr einfach und legen die Bilder einfach irgendwo ab. Es ist auch erschreckend, dass bei so vielen Bildern überhaupt keine oder nur eine sehr unzulängliche Beschreibung gegeben wird. Die Neueinführung der Category:Dental equipment ist übrigens eine gute Idee. Wenn Du exakt Deine "Fehler" wissen möchtest, Sieh Dir die von Dir geänderten Vorgänge an und wie ich sie korrigiert habe. Gruß, --R. Engelhardt (talk) 22:54, 13 December 2009 (UTC)
Vielen Dank für Deine Antwort, es tut mir Leid, dass ich Dir Arbeit gemacht habe. Das mit den wild einsortierten Bildern ist aber in fast allen Hauptkategorien leider so. Es gibt viel zu tun, ziehen wir an einem Strang! --El. (talk) 10:00, 14 December 2009 (UTC)


Please don't nominate these kind of files for deletion. You probably noticed the message Error creating thumbnail: Invalid thumbnail parameters or PNG file with more than 12.5 million pixels. That's because we currently don't render images more than 12.5 million pixels because of performance issues, but we might do that in the future. Multichill (talk) 14:02, 20 December 2009 (UTC)

OK, thank you for informaton. --El. (talk) 14:05, 20 December 2009 (UTC)

Category:Seattle Trestle[edit]

What is the basis for the name of this category? Anything citable? There are numerous trestles in Seattle. I live about 2 miles from this one (which, by the way, is currently being torn down & replaced) and have never heard it called "Seattle Trestle." I've always heard it called the "45th Street Viaduct" or "NE 45th Street Viaduct". - Jmabel ! talk 17:30, 15 July 2010 (UTC)

Is Trestle Bridges in Seattle the better name for this category? --El. (talk) 09:22, 19 July 2010 (UTC)
That would be a good category (and would cover more than just this one bridge). I'll sort it out. I just wanted to make sure this wasn't a case of you knowing something I didn't. - Jmabel ! talk 15:28, 19 July 2010 (UTC)

File:Ruine Wolfgang ca. 1940.jpg[edit]

Hallo, kannst Du mir einen Tipp geben, woher das Bild stammt und weißt Du näheres darüber? Ich forsche gerade etwas zu der Anlage, es gibt keinerlei Unterlagen aus neuerer Zeit, aus welcher der Turm wohl stammt. Das hässliche Betondach des Turmes müsste ungefähr in der Zeit des Fotos entstanden sein, die Zinnen stammen vermutlich aus dem 19. oder frühen 20. Jahrhundert. --Haselburg-müller (talk) 22:25, 29 May 2012 (UTC)

Sorry wg. der späten Antwort. Das Foto hat ein Vater in seiner Jugendzeit gemacht, habe ich bei alten Bildern gefunden. Die "jungen Leute" machten damals einen Fahrradausflug. Über die Entstehung und Veränderung der Gebäude kann ich Dir nichts mitteilen. Gruß --El. (talk) 13:00, 2 June 2012 (UTC)

Kategorisierung Fotoflüge[edit]

Hallo El., habe gesehen dass du einige Bilder in neue Fotoflug-Kategorien einsortiert hast. Bitte schau mal auf de:Wikipedia Diskussion:Projekt Fotoflüge#Kategorisierung hochgeladener Bilder, da hatten wir ein anderes Vorgehen vorgesehen. Außerdem sind jetzt die Dinge doppelt erfasst, es gibt dafür schon die Kategorie Category:Fotoflug 2012-05-28 mit gleichem Inhalt. -- Gerd Fahrenhorst (talk) 17:42, 9 July 2012 (UTC)

Hallo Gerd, erst mal vielen Dank für Deinen Hinweis, es war nicht meine Absicht, etwas durcheinander zu bringen, ich bitte um Entschuldigung und bringe es gerne wieder in Ordnung. Teile mir bitte mit, wie dies geschehen soll. Der Grund für meinen Aktionismus ist nämlich, dass die Bilder in der Category:Aerial photographs of Germany einzeln abgelegt waren. Auf diese und die Category:Aerial photographs habe ich immer mal ein Auge und sortiere dort hin und wieder in Unterkategorien ein. Wenn ich die Sache rückgängig machen soll, müsste für die Einbindung in Category:Aerial photographs of Germany eine Lösung gefunden werden. Mein Vorschlag: Ein Link zu eurem Projekt, die Category:Aerial photographs (Flight series) würde sich anbieten. Dort fände der geneigte Sucher von Luftbildern schön sortiert die vorhandenen Serien. Aber ich habe noch was für Dich. Bei meiner Sortiererei bin ich auf einen Piloten gestoßen, der im süddeutschen Raum jede Menge Bilder gemacht hat. Hier ist eines seiner noch nicht näher kategorisierten Bilder. Eine ganze Menge ist schon in Category:Aerial photographs of Baden-Württemberg und Category:Aerial photographs of Bavaria, jeweils in die entsprechenden Landkreise einsortiert. Andere Gegenden befliegt er wohl nicht. Noch ´ne Sache: Passt dies auch in euer Projekt? Habe ich vor einiger Zeit auseinandersortiert. Gruß --El. (talk) 09:51, 12 July 2012 (UTC)
Hallo El., das mit Category:Aerial photographs (Flight series) ist schon mal eine gute Anregung, habe ich umgesetzt. Bezüglich des weiteren Vorgehens werde ich mal auf de:Wikipedia Diskussion:Projekt Fotoflüge das weitere Vorgehen diskutieren, damit es nicht bei einer 2er-Diskussion bleibt. -- Gerd Fahrenhorst (talk) 11:56, 14 July 2012 (UTC)
