Tip of the day...

Cite the source on all image uploads

Regardless of how an image you've uploaded is licensed for use on Wikipedia, please include information on its source. This allows admins and other editors to verify the copyrights. This includes pictures you created yourself: if you took the photo, give yourself credit – you deserve it!
