Photos

Hello,

Unfortunately it can be a bit tedious to upload images from these sources. The easiest ones are images from Flickr licensed under CC-BY or CC-BY-SA, see my second bullet point.

  • So any picture from Wikimedia Commons is okay to upload. Please follow the format used on images such as File:Alpengeist_(Busch_Gardens_Williamsburg)_03.jpg. So, use {{Wikimedia Commons|<link to original image here>}} and {{cc-by}} or {{cc-by-sa}}, matching the license on Wikimedia Commons. To upload files from Wikimedia Commons use the old upload tool, Special:Upload.
  • When searching Flickr, use the "Any license" drop down and change to "All Creative Commons". You may use any of these on Coasterpedia. Special:UploadWizard has an automated tool for images licensed under CC-BY and CC-BY-SA licenses, so if the image is licensed under one of these, use UploadWizard and you can just paste the URL for the photo in.
  • Flickr images not licensed under CC-BY or CC-BY-SA are more complicated as the UploadWizard won't automatically upload these. So you'll need to use the old Special:Upload tool, and copy the license info in manually. Check out files such as File:Adventureland_(USA-Iowa)_2004_01.jpg for an example of how to do this.

Hope that helps! Any more questions just let me know. Lachlan (Talk | contribs) (an admin) 08:55, 29 September 2019 (UTC)[reply]

Empty categories

Hello, please don't create categories if there is nothing to go in them. Thanks Lachlan (Talk | contribs) (an admin) 23:10, 9 October 2019 (UTC)[reply]

And don't add other users photos without permission. If you're 16 years old now, then you'd have been 5 when that photo was taken. This is your only warning. Lachlan (Talk | contribs) (an admin) 07:46, 10 October 2019 (UTC)[reply]
Yep, but the photos you are uploading just now day you created them. You need to take your time, and follow the instructions I wrote to you above. For photos from Wikimedia commons, use Special:Upload. Let me know if you have any questions Hope that helps.Lachlan (Talk | contribs) (an admin) 11:33, 10 October 2019 (UTC)[reply]

I see you uploaded File:Coaster Express (Parque Warner Madrid) 01.jpg but you're still uploading it as yourself. Are you interested in following the correct procedure on this wiki? Please let me know exactly what problem you have with following all the advice I've given to you so far. If you can't upload files correctly, do not upload them at all.

Yes, as long as you follow the instructions above for uploading photos from Flickr. They must be under creative commons license. They can't be uploaded as your own work. Lachlan (Talk | contribs) (an admin) 08:31, 11 October 2019 (UTC)[reply]
Hello again, I am working on making the upload process easier. Please take a minute and read the instructions at the top of the upload pages. I'm hoping it'll be easier to follow. Lachlan (Talk | contribs) (an admin) 16:08, 11 October 2019 (UTC)[reply]
