Commons talk:Graphics village pump
Move to Commons:Graphic village pump
- Yes, and I suggest the further change of making "graphic" plural; "graphic village pump" would indicate a village pump that is graphic (*ahem*) while "Graphics village pump" indicates a village pump that is about graphics. I suspect we want the latter and not the former :) -- Editor at Large • talk 04:56, 20 May 2007 (UTC)
+ tab needed?
- It uses direct section editing instead - current edits are to Commons:Graphics village pump/July 2007. It could behave like a normal village pump if someone added __NEWSECTIONLINK__. — Jeff G. 15:02, 8 July 2007 (UTC)
- I tried. It didn't work correctly because new sections would be added to Commons:Graphics village pump rather than the correct page, currently Commons:Graphics village pump/October 2007. The new section link code is incompatible with the way that this pump was designed by Yug and 126.96.36.199 (perhaps the same person). — Jeff G. (talk|contribs) 22:18, 11 October 2007 (UTC)
Auto-Conversion to bitmap formats on-request
I was looking for an image that I could use as a Windows Shortcut Icon. Windows only accepts ICO files. PNG and SVG might be great on the web, but Windows (at least XP) can't handle them. Could code be added to such that all image pages get a series of conversion links? The list below shows the conversions that I see as possible. This does not take into account whether image formats are free or not. I am not listing icon or cursor formats not used by Windows. Feel free to add them for me.
|bmp||jpg**||gif*||png||svg||tiff||Windows Icon (ICO)||Windows Cursor (CUR)|
|Windows Icon (ICO)||Yes†||Yes†||Yes||Yes||Yes||Yes||n/a||Yes|
|Windows Cursor (CUR)||Yes†||Yes†||Yes||Yes||Yes||Yes||Yes||n/a|
*Operations involving this format might require non-free code.
**Images converted from this format will still have any JPEG artifacts.
***The page should ask for the compression level when converting to this format.
†This conversion will not provide any transparency.
††This conversion will strip out any transparency information.
- I have formalized your enhancement request at bugzilla:11635. — Jeff G. (talk|contribs) 22:27, 11 October 2007 (UTC)
This page seems to need ever more monthly admin to keep it tidy - see the recent history. I don't really understand what is going on - some month end stuff seems to be done by some bot or other, but if so, it does not seem to me to be doing its job very well. Perhaps the page has been unwittingly restructured since originally conceived. It is also possible to add discussion topics and queries either to the main page or to the monthly sub page, which results in further muddle, especially when it is tidied up, but leaves a trail of wreckage in the history.

Hello, I am developing a number of MediaWiki User/Developer related tutorials on Meta. One of the tutorial subjects is a "Media Specialist" training. I wanted to know if Common Users have developed or can recommend some instructional materials for adopting/training new users to contribute at the Graphics labs?
