Copyright of photos of wax figures
Hello, I see you uploaded a number of photos of wax figures of Madame Tussaud's . You name Public Domain as the licende. It strikes me that a wax cabinet should use this licence – typically such works of modern art are copyrighted by their authors. Photographs of such items are thus covered by the copyright of the artist. Could you provide information on the copyright status of the wax figures you uploaded photos of? I'm worried they are not in line with the licence guidelines. -- Wikipeder 16:06, 24 June 2006 (UTC)
Tip: Categorizing 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.
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:
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 .

Your account will be renamed [ edit ]
The developer team at Wikimedia is making some changes to how accounts work, as part of our on-going efforts to provide new and better tools for our users like cross-wiki notifications. These changes will mean you have the same account name everywhere. This will let us give you new features that will help you edit and discuss better, and allow more flexible user permissions for tools. One of the side-effects of this is that user accounts will now have to be unique across all 900 Wikimedia wikis. See the announcement for more information.
Unfortunately, your account clashes with another account also called Infratec. To make sure that both of you can use all Wikimedia projects in future, we have reserved the name Infratec~commonswiki that only you will have. If you like it, you don't have to do anything. If you do not like it, you can pick out a different name .
Your account will still work as before, and you will be credited for all your edits made so far, but you will have to use the new account name when you log in.
Sorry for the inconvenience.
