Historic (1981) UK Road signs[edit]

Request:

I note these scans are B/W. It would be nice to replace the B/W diagrams with appropriate color vector diagrams, so that they can be included in a future Wikisource transcription. --Sfan00 IMG (talk) 13:52, 9 November 2013 (UTC)

Graphist opinion(s):

Most of the signs are icluded In This Category

Rancagua's coat of arms[edit]

Article(s): en:Rancagua, es:Rancagua, and many others.

Request:

There is a coat of arms of Rancagua city in Commons, but it's very different from the original ones; this one and that one. Let me know if you could modify it to look more like the original ones, or re-create them. Best, (and sorry for my bad english). --Warko (talk) 20:21, 26 November 2013 (UTC)

Graphist opinion(s):

You show two different images as one original. So I have to ask which one would you like?
As I understand you want us to add the two images to one and that one would not be like any one of them and how should it look... You have to provide us with one look and then we can tell you if we can do it. --Goran tek-en (talk) 20:01, 8 January 2014 (UTC)
This one is the real coat of arms of the city, the other one is the coat of the Municipality. --Warko (talk) 00:32, 31 January 2014 (UTC)


Blazon[edit]

I didn't know where to ask about this, but since many heraldry interested people contribute here, I try here:

What would a blazon in English for File:Berenberg COA.svg look like? The German language blazon is: "Im goldenen Felde auf einem grünen Schildfuß ein nach rechts aufgerichteter schwarzer Bär mit goldenem Halsband, in den Vorderpranken einen grünen Zweig haltend" Vanasan (talk) 12:35, 1 December 2013 (UTC)

Have you looked for this section: en:Blazon#Grammar? (at the image-comments)
But yes, many most of this CoA-English-Nobility are really poorly documented about their blazon ...
... looks as if you have more to investigate in the (web-)references of each CoA!

National emblem of France (UN variant)[edit]

Article(s): National emblem of France

Request:

I searched Commons and Wikipedia for a vector image of the French emblem (UN variant) and all I could find is that version without the Legion d'Honneur plus some minor differences. I think a more precise vector version should be created and uploaded separately. Thanks in advance.--Carnby (talk) 21:10, 21 January 2014 (UTC)

New images of (former) British municipalities[edit]

Article(s): nl:Medway (Engeland) (and the other 18 languages), nl:Coat of arms of Medway (I am working on this article), nl:Coat of arms of Rochester upon Medway (I am working on this article), nl:Chatham (Kent) (and the other 19 languages), nl:Coat of arms of Chatham (I am working on this article) Request:

Pleas create all three new, as I haven't found any of them, or please show me where I can find the three images. -- Dqfn13 (talk) 20:39, 19 April 2014 (UTC)
Any body who cares to react? This section is here for nearly a month and nobody has reacted! I've only added the Dutch articles, but there are many other languages with the articles about the places.
@Dqfn13: Please try to give this to an Heraldry project like en:Wikipedia:WikiProject Heraldry and vexillology or similar (because also "graphist only" does almost a bad job here). But anyway I'm also not sure about the permission here, most of this are declared as "Picture used with permission, do not reproduce." So this is your reason for the SVG, because we can get permission? -- Perhelion 13:55, 26 May 2014 (UTC)
Hi Perhelion, svg is, in my opinion, better then jpg. Thanks for the tip about the heraldry and vexillology project, I'll try there. Dqfn13 (talk) 15:57, 26 May 2014 (UTC)
No reaction on en.wikipedia either... maybe the coats of arms are to difficult or are they not interesting enough? Dqfn13 (talk) 15:33, 13 June 2014 (UTC)
As Perhelion remarked above, there are serious concerns about the copyright of these images. Having this in mind there will no one wanting to spend many hours on the artwork that is deleted shortly after publication. -  Maxxl² - talk 15:21, 4 July 2014 (UTC)
I wrote new... so there won't be an issue of copyright as the images will be slightly different if you make them completly new. So copyright is on the .jpg drawings themselves. Dqfn13 (talk) 20:07, 4 July 2014 (UTC)

 Not done User: Perhelion19:21, 4 July 2014 (UTC)

If not done sticks I'll ask somebody else to make them for me, from scratch, like the Coat of arms of The City of London, which is also on that site. People are affraind because they want to copy the original file, instead of creating a completly new arms. Dqfn13 (talk) 20:09, 4 July 2014 (UTC)

Uniform coats of arms for Croatian regions[edit]

Article(s): Regions of Croatia, Croatia proper, Istria, Dalmatia, Slavonia

Request:

Requesting new versions of the first three coats of arms above, modified to use the same escutcheon shape and the same shades of colour. Recommending the escutcheon shape and the blue from the fourth image, the coa of Dalmatia (which doesn't require modification). The third image (Istria) is raster, as there doesn't seem to be a proper SVG coa of the region (the heraldic goat isn't supposed to be walking as in here). Thanks in advance. --DIREKTOR (TALK) 13:19, 8 June 2014 (UTC)

Graphist opinion(s):

Why? Anyway the Dalmatia escutcheon is not well formed, in addition Dalmatia coa is also unheraldic. I suggest to give it to an heraldic project. Perhelion     13:39, 8 June 2014 (UTC)
Well the three coas were all taken from various sources that do not relate to the actual regions. One is taken from the Croatian republic coat of arms, the other is the Istria County coa.. I.e. their shape is wrong for the purpose we have in mind over there, which is simply representing the regions with their respective traditional symbol, and it would be rather well for the coas to appear less haphazard.
Naturally, the escutcheon shape was merely a suggestion. A well formed escutcheon would be preferable to one that isn't such.
But please do clear that up. What do you mean exactly that the Dalmatia escutcheon isn't well formed? And what makes it unheraldic? Also, where precisely do you suggest I take the Dalmatia coa? --DIREKTOR (TALK) 13:57, 8 June 2014 (UTC)

Changing the font size of some text in a vector image[edit]

Article(s): en:Marshall County, Minnesota

Request:

The text in the middle of the image seems to have a fixed font size, which means that all the text runs together when the image is scaled down (such as when it's used in articles). Would it be possible for you guys to change the fixed font size to something else, such as the size of the graph labels on the bottom? APerson (talk) 13:39, 30 July 2014 (UTC)

icons for Template:Commons FP galleries[edit]

Article(s): Template:Commons FP galleries

Request:

I'm looking for black and white icons (if possible svg) for the new FP galleries template and have difficulties finding something for 'other animals' (e.g. molluscs), 'fungi', 'satellite images' and 'interior'. The first three are probably quite easily solved if somebody could help me by changing one of the two snail/fungi pictures into a filled black and white svg icon (You have to be able to see what is meant with a height of 15px).
'Interior' is much more difficult to find something fitting (as it's quite abstract). My best idea so far is to try a room perspective - perhaps simply a corner with a table or a picture/window on the wall? The three pictures I put in the gallery are the best I found so far but still much too complicated... interior 4 is my try to simplify those. --Anna reg (talk) 14:26, 30 July 2014 (UTC)

Not easier than this - not. :P This images was created with Blender, fortunately the creator Snaily is still active.

Is one can do this instead of the file's creator? --ديفيد عادل وهبة خليل 2 (talk) 07:00, 4 August 2014 (UTC)

Reverse color choice for population pyramids[edit]

Category:Population pyramids of counties of the United States

Examples:

Article(s): (example use)

Request:

Use a bot to reverse the color choice - blue for boys, and red for girls. There are hundreds and hundreds of these to fix. It would help, at the same time, to make the male/female symbols larger. --Delphi234 (talk) 18:41, 10 August 2014 (UTC)

Graphist opinion(s):

Have you a plausible reason for this? Yes, it are for sure more as over thousands (I've already edited some). PS: If yes I would create a bot acc for this. User: Perhelion (Commons: = crap?)18:55, 10 August 2014 (UTC)
Well these are all United States counties, and since about 1940, the United States has standardized on blue for boys, pink for girls. Red is close enough. Having blue for girls will certainly be confusing. Delphi234 (talk) 04:29, 11 August 2014 (UTC)

Color seatmap of Ethiopian Airlines Flight 961[edit]

Article(s): en:Ethiopian Airlines Flight 961

Request:

Please make a color seat map based upon http://www.fss.aero/accident-reports/dvdfiles/ET/1996-11-23-ET.pdf Page 53, Appendix D 1 of 8, PDF document Page 59 of 99. If you have difficulty understanding the map, you may cross-check it with the lists of surviving and deceased passengers and surviving and deceased crew members:
  • Appendix E (Page 1 of 6), p. 61 (PDF document 67/99) - List of Surviving Crew Members (Table 1), List of Fatally Injured Crew Members (Table 2).
  • The passenger lists: Appendix E Pages 2-6 of 6, p. 62-66 (Pages 68-72/99 of the PDF document) - List of Fatally Injured Passengers (Table 4) on pages 3-6 of Appendix E, p. 63-66 - List of Surviving Passengers (Page 2 of Appendix E, p. 62)

According to the official report, 119 passengers and 6 crew members died, 38 passengers and 6 crew members received serious injuries, 2 passengers received minor injuries, and 4 passengers received no injuries. (p. 2, Page 8/99 of the PDF document)

These lists are in the same PDF file: --WhisperToMe (talk) 11:01, 18 August 2014 (UTC)

Thanks, Fred! In regards to the seat designations: I'll repeat the numbers of the seats with survivors as seen in the official document Page 68/99. Seats marked "S" are seats of those with injuries (either minor or serious) and seats marked "N" are those with no injury. There should be only four "N" seats, and the other survivors are the "S" seats. However note that there seems to be discrepancies between the survivor list and the seat map! and When the seat map and passenger manifest conflict, use the seat map since my research suggests that the seat map is the best indicator of the actual seating arrangement when the plane hit the water
According to the seat map: The three cabin crew in the front died. In the back two cabin crew survived while the other two died.
The four "N" seats are 26D, 33F, 34D, 34E. The other survivors are "S" seats. The seats not having survivors are either unoccupied (Blank) or fatality seats (Marked with an "F").
NOTES A: Ethiopian Airlines seems to have marked 22C, 22D, 25G, and 34E as unoccupied seats (blank) on the seat map, but the manifest says they were occupied by survivors
NOTES B: Ethiopian Airlines seems to have marked 7F, 9C, 9E, and 10B as survivor seats (S) on the seat map, but I haven't found passengers in those seats on the manifest.
  • UPDATE: I understand why the discrepancy is in place. The passengers for 22C and 22D were Frank "Pancho" Huddle and his wife Chanya "Pom" Huddle. Huddle says he got a last minute upgrade to business class - So I think what happened was that the four seats were economy class passengers upgraded to business class at the last minute. In that case, please in case of a conflict between the passenger manifest and seat map, use the seat map
Possibly the cabin crew may have occupied some of the other seats: the jet only shows seven cabin crew seats but there were nine cabin crew on the flight
NOTE C: The manifest stated that the hijackers had occupied seats 25B, 31B, and 32C. AFAIK they were NOT in their seats when the plane crashed (at the time they were fighting the pilots and/or standing guard outside). But I don't think it was an error to show their seats as fatalities on the seat map.
NOTE D: The map stated that 7D and 29E had fatalities but I did not see a 7D or a 29E in the passenger fatalities manifest
NOTE E: The same seat is listed twice on the manifest for a fatality: 21E: Ahmed Ibrahim (Egypt) and 21E: CE Grace (Nigeria)
WhisperToMe (talk) 15:56, 18 August 2014 (UTC)
Sorry, I'd uploaded this before I saw your extra comments. I'm taking a break from the computer for a short while but I'll get back to correcting the disparities. Also if there's anything else you want to me to change or add/take out then please let me know. --Fred the Oyster (talk) 18:40, 18 August 2014 (UTC)
It's okay. If you based it on the seat map alone, it's fine. I checked my research and found that the seat map in probability is more "up to date" than the manifest (I cross checked Frank Huddle's empty seat with the story of his last minute upgrade to business class). I do have: Requested corrections and additions: Passengers in rows 11-14 in seats A, B, F, and G were all dead. Seat 12B is unoccupied. Seat 21E had a fatality. The person in Seat 33A did not survive: He/she was a fatality. Also, please add the seat lettering: A, B, C, E, F, G for business class and A, B, C, D, E, F, G for economy class.
New request #1: Is it okay if you have French version? The French: Legende = Legend, Decès = Dead, Survivants avec blessure grave ou legère = Survivors with severe or minor injury, Survivants sans blessure = Uninjured, Siege un occupe = Empty - Seat map = Occupation des sièges par des passagers, Galley = Cuisine, avatory = Toilette , Flight attendant seat = Siège des agents de bord, Closet = Placard WhisperToMe (talk) 18:46, 18 August 2014 (UTC)
New request #2: By the way, if you want to do one more: PDF p. 60/99 (French: PDF p. 88/89) has another graphic showing the fractures in the airplane body. Are you interested in making a graphic on this one? Anyway, thank you so much for your help so far! WhisperToMe (talk) 19:04, 18 August 2014 (UTC)
I've done the French version as above, a couple of the legends you didn't translate so I let Google do the work. If I've got it wrong then please feel free to edit it yourself. It's only a text file file and all the wordage is near the bottom of the file and is easily changed. As for the other diagram. I can't do it right now, but if you don't get any other takers in the next couple of days I'll try to fit it in. I did use the seat plan for the entire thing as I was too busy messing with the graphics rather than crass-checking things. There is always the possibility that I added to the errors by getting my colours confused, so it may be worthwhile not accepting that I got it right the first time round! --Fred the Oyster (talk) 19:41, 18 August 2014 (UTC)
Thank you so much, Fred! I really appreciate it! If/when you correct the colors for seats A/B/F/G of rows 11-14, 12B (empty), 21E, and 33A in both the English and French versions, please let me know so I can add the seat map to various Wikipedia versions. WhisperToMe (talk) 20:31, 18 August 2014 (UTC)
I've corrected the ones you spotted and a few others you hadn't! Oh the joys of copy and pasting allied with a bad memory. I've re-uploaded the corrected versions. Whilst I was at it I also tidied up some things to make them clearer and in the process lost the white background for the plane (just this minute noticed that. It's not that important so as I'm knackered now so I'll sort that in the morning.--Fred the Oyster (talk) 22:31, 18 August 2014 (UTC)
OCD is a bitch! All done. :) --Fred the Oyster (talk) 23:18, 18 August 2014 (UTC)
Thanks Fred! One more thing: F/G of rows 11-14 should also be fatalities. For the French: Attendant seat = Siège des agents de bord. I think Closet is Placard but I'll ask a French speaker. WhisperToMe (talk) 03:12, 19 August 2014 (UTC)
Oops, I'd missed those seats. They changed colour as I'd accidentally grouped a series of seats with some further back down the plane and when I changed their colour... well you get the idea. :) Anyway, all sorted, along with the translations. I've also set the two documents up to look alike (view window) with the exception of the text. I don't know why I didn't do that before, it would have been far easier for me. Talk about a major brain fart! --Fred the Oyster (talk) 10:06, 19 August 2014 (UTC)
Thank you so much for your help! I really appreciate what has been made. Before these maps were made its likely the public wasn't aware of this and they had to hunt inside the document to find this information. Now it's been presented clearly and openly. I'm going to check with the Amharic (national language of Ethiopia) speakers to see if they are interested in making an Amharic version WhisperToMe (talk) 11:08, 19 August 2014 (UTC)
No probs. Can we consider this one done now? --Fred the Oyster (talk) 11:25, 19 August 2014 (UTC)
