Hi Rabia,

Thank you for all the excellent Pakistan geography edits you've been making recently. I saw you uploaded a new picture today. So that we can make sure it is used correctly by others, can I ask you to fill out the blank Image Origin and License template that I have pasted on to the image page here. You can read some of the requirements for uploading images here just in case you need to check anything. Let me know if you need a hand, Sarah 11:33, 21 October 2009 (PDT)

Location Infobox

Hi Rabia,

Well done - you are really getting to grips with lots of locations. I hope you don't mind but I have edited the Location Infobox details in your article on Lahore District to point to the appropriate Wikipedia articles. The present day details should really link to articles about the modern district, the modern state and the modern country rather than articles in the FibiWiki which are always going to be looking backwards to the British period. Of coure, these links could be repeated in an External section as well but I haven't done this. If you are happy with this, do you think you can start doing this with your other articles? Thank you.

More on Lacation

Apologies for deleting the separate reference to Lahore District - I didn't know that the district was split in two. I see that this has happened to other districts as well. Would it be a good idea to mention this in the History section e.g. "On 1 July 1975, Lahore District was split into . . ."?

Also, I suggested that the links to Punjab and to Pakistan in the Present Day Details section should be to the Wikipedia articles rather than internal links within the FibiWiki. I did this in the Lahore article so all you need to do is to copy and paste these when you create or edit other locations.

Thank you for all your help and sorry to nag! HughWilding 19:08, 4 November 2009 (PST)


Hi Rabia, I altered the location infobox to better fit districts. See Template:District. Seeing as not many have a map, I removed the picture section to make it neater - any maps can just go beneath like other images. Let me know if you can think of any other sections it should have.

I reinstated the image section to the district template. I'm a bit confused about coordinates though - what would one put for a whole district? Sarah 13:28, 17 April 2010 (PDT)

Changes to adding image license templates

Just to let you know that I have made some changes to the way we license images in fibiwiki. In the past we had to copy and past a license template Sarah made and add a link to the relevant license on the creative commons website etc. I decided that it was time to simplify the procedure now more images are being uploaded.

When you upload a file at Special:Upload in the File description section you should see a drop down next to Licensing where you can select an appropriate license. The one we tend to use the most I have placed at the top of the drop down list. This is the most restrictive license. Select the license and then upload. You will then see it has added the license template for you.

To attribute the image to it's owner or creator edit the licensing section. To do this click edit and you will see the license template looks something like {{Cc-by-nc-nd-3.0}} to attribute the image to a fibiwiki user Valmay simply change it too {{Cc-by-nc-nd-3.0|Details="Owned by [User:Valmay|Valmay Young]."}} or if not a user {{Cc-by-nc-nd-3.0|Details="Owned by Valmay Young."}}

You can find all the license tags at Category:Image_License_Tags with links to example pages.

Hope this makes sense. If I have missed a license out or you have any questions/suggestions feel free to contact me and many thanks for all the excellent work you contribute to fibiwiki. We really appreciate your help. --FIBIS Webmaster 00:29, 14 November 2011 (PST)
