Northwest Airlines Boeing 757-200 Missing[edit]

Image:Northwest Airlines Boeing 757-200.jpg is missing and shows on the mosaic quite visibly. The original image is at [1]. Could we replace it with one from Wikimedia logo mosaic/Colours gallery/Blue? --Midnightcomm 02:49, 28 February 2007 (UTC)

There is a duplicate image in the current mosaic.

Gentian_from_slovakia.JPG is gone[edit]

The image Image:Gentian_from_slovakia.JPG has been deleted. ~ Tommy Kronkvist 03:14, 12 June 2007 (UTC)

It has been replaced... 02:19, 12 June 2007 LX (Talk | contribs | block) (40,810 bytes) (s/Image:Gentian from slovakia.JPG/Image:RHK lock Wanne 1.jpg/) [rollback] thank you LX for doing it! ++Lar: t/c 12:06, 12 June 2007 (UTC)

Image:Rylov Sunset 1917.jpg slightly too tall?[edit]

I think this image might be making a small gap in one of the red rows. (it is 1681 × 1300 which scales to 775 × 599 which is a bit short) It's a great image! Maybe a resized canvas with white sides would get to the right 4x3 form factor? ++Lar: t/c 12:12, 12 June 2007 (UTC)

Replaced with Image:Sweet allura red close.jpg. Man vyi 14:30, 12 July 2007 (UTC)

Broken - and I can't fix it![edit]

The mosaic is broken in half a dozen places - nobody has fixed it in about a month! Yet it's locked to prevent me from fixing it.

If you're going to lock a page so completely - you really do need people here ready to repair it at a moment's notice.

Right now, the protection is doing more harm than good - it's keeping the thing broken when it could be working! Why isn't an sprotect considered sufficient? The preceding unsigned comment was added by SteveBaker (talk • contribs) at 19:43, 11 July 2007 (UTC)

I have changed to sprotect. Thank you for offering to find replacement images for the missing ones, much appreciated. It is interesting how entropy sets in on things, isn't it? We are losing about 2 images a month on average I think. (more recently than earlier on, so I hope the trend isn't increasing!) ++Lar: t/c 23:52, 11 July 2007 (UTC)

For the record I am pretty sure these are (as of this instant) the missing images:

Thanks. Replaced with Image:BF München Schriftzug.JPG. Man vyi 17:38, 5 November 2007 (UTC)

Image:Vue depuis l'entrée de la Tour Éperon.JPG has been deleted[edit]

Replacement required for this one. 16:15, 2 November 2007 (UTC)

Image:DG-400.svg has been deleted[edit]

This one also requires replacement. Perhaps the images that are a bit too tall could be replaced as well? ++Lar: t/c 15:24, 11 November 2007 (UTC)


Can we replace animations with something static? We can have an animated mosaic and a non-animated one separately but this way is far too distracting. -- Cat ちぃ? 19:12, 2 April 2008 (UTC)

Logo mosaic[edit]

Why we have this is a mystery. Someone must've been exceptionally bored to do this. BarkingFish (talk) 22:06, 27 August 2011 (UTC)

What happened[edit]

File:Samuel Hays marker.jpg was on the mosaic. It seems to have been replaced by File:Wildrose2Blütenstandweiß2 ArM.jpg with this edit.

This was there a while ago. Could somebody please explain what happened? Thanks. Evrik (talk) 17:10, 17 December 2012 (UTC)

  • Seeing as there is no response ... I'm going to change it back. Evrik (talk) 19:45, 30 April 2013 (UTC)
