Hello, Onceinawhile!
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]]
[[Category:Comets]]
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.

Palestinian Citizenship 1925
http://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/File:Palestinian_Citizenship_Order_1925.jpg at the top of the document Palestinian Citizenship 1925 Does it really matter that the remainder of the document is in Hebrew when referencing this image to show Palestinian Citizenship was a reality in 1925 and presumably until May 14th 1948? ...

1920 Syrian mandate flag
This flag is obscure (it was used at best for a few months, and solid information on it is hard to come by), but I don't think it really falls into the fictional flag category. In any case, it's not nearly as fictional as the stupid "mandate civil ensigns" that User:Gryffindor seemingly created out of pure nothing one bored rainy day, but which for some reason apparently cannot be deleted...

File:Historical boundaries of Palestine.svg
What are the green lines? Are they supposed to be late Ottoman Vilayet and Sandjak boundaries? If so, then there are discrepancies from other maps I've seen. If they're supposed to be something else, then that something else should be explained on the image description page and/or the article in which the image is used (en:Definitions of Palestine), which is not the case now...

2013 map
hello Once, i've noticed you were working on File:Palestinian National Authority within Israel, 2013.svg. However i must note that since late December 2012 and especially since January 2013, the PNA was completely transformed into the State of Palestine. I would hence like to ask you to modify the image into "State of Palestine, 2013" title (or something of that sort.Greyshark09 (talk) 19:22, 15 July 2013 (UTC)
Hi Greyshark, i'd be happy to help but i don't think i can - i believe image title changes need admin help (at least i know i had help last time i changed one). Oncenawhile (talk) 10:17, 18 July 2013 (UTC)

File:Mandate for Palestine (legal instrument).png
I have uploaded a PNG image file which is extracted from your File:Mandate for Palestine (legal instrument).svg, because such historical document should not be converted to vector graphic and hence should not be an SVG image. I also notified User:AnonMoos about my recent upload and asking how to replace your SVG image by my PNG image. --Quest for Truth (talk) 05:43, 4 November 2015 (UTC)

Dear Onceinawhile,
Wikimedia Commons is happy to announce that the second round of the 2015 Picture of the Year competition is now open. This year will be the tenth edition of the annual Wikimedia Commons photo competition, which recognizes exceptional contributions by users on Wikimedia Commons. Wikimedia users are invited to vote for their favorite images featured on Commons during the last year (2015) to produce a single Picture of the Year.
Hundreds of images that have been rated Featured Pictures by the international Wikimedia Commons community in the past year were entered in this competition. These images include professional animal and plant shots, breathtaking panoramas and skylines, restorations of historical images, photographs portraying the world's best architecture, impressive human portraits, and so much more.
There are two total rounds of voting. In the first round, you voted for as many images as you liked. In Round 1, there were 1322 candidate images. There are 56 finalists in Round 2, comprised of the top 30 overall as well as the top #1 and #2 from each sub-category. In the final round, you may vote for just one or maximal three image to become the Picture of the Year.

Thanks for uploading File:Mahmoud Abbas describes the Trump Peace Plan as "Swiss Cheese".jpg. I notice that the file page either doesn't contain enough information about the license or it contains contradictory information about the license, so the copyright status is unclear.
If you created this file yourself, then you must provide a valid copyright tag. For example, you can tag it with {{​self​|GFDL|cc-by-sa-all}} to release it under the multi-license GFDL plus Creative Commons Attribution-ShareAlike All-version license or you can tag it with {{PD-self}} to release it into the public domain. (See Commons:Copyright tags for the full list of license tags that you can use.)
If you did not create the file yourself or if it is a derivative of another work that is possibly subject to copyright protection, then you must specify where you found it (e.g. usually a link to the web page where you got it), you must provide proof that it has a license that is acceptable for Commons (e.g. usually a link to the terms of use for content from that page), and you must add an appropriate license tag. If you did not create the file yourself and the specific source and license information is not available on the web, you must obtain permission through the OTRS system and follow the procedure described there.
Note that any unsourced or improperly licensed files will be deleted one week after they have been marked as lacking proper information, as described in criteria for deletion. If you have uploaded other files, please confirm that you have provided the proper information for those files, too. If you have any questions about licenses please ask at Commons:Village pump/Copyright or see our help pages. Thank you.

Lands acquired by Rutenberg company
See File:Lands_Acquired_in_the_Vicinity_of_the_Jordan_Works_in_Palestine_and_Transjordania,_from_the_Palestine_Electric_Company_Archives.jpg
Hi. I'm sure the map was drawn in two colours. As it is now, all we have is a big confusion. The lands around Moshavat Kinneret had been settled since 1908, Menahamiya already since 1901, Gesher apparently was built on land bought by Baron de Rothschild (d. 1934), so not by Rutenberg and probably long before his time. The original legend clearly distinguishes between the two categories, but the distinction is lost w/o the colour. Now all dark areas appear alike. As it is, the map is almost useless, as the distinction it was specially created for is lost. All it offers now is - what? Which are those among the Jewish-owned plots in the wider area which were useful for building the water conveying system for the power plant? Very thin. Is there a way to get a colour copy? Cheers, Arminden (talk) 00:00, 13 April 2021 (UTC)
Hi @Arminden: you are 100% right. I have never seen a color copy unfortunately, and do not know how we would be able to get hold of one. Onceinawhile (talk) 03:16, 13 April 2021 (UTC)
