There seems to be a problem regarding the description and/or licensing of this particular file. It has been found that you've added in the image's description only a Template that's not a license and although it provides useful information about the image, it's not a valid license. Could you please resolve this problem, adding the license in the image linked above? You can edit the description page and change the text. Uploading a new version of the file does not change the description of the file. This page may give you more hints on which license to choose. Thank you.

Heraldry[edit]

The French wikipedia accepts the full coats of arms images by Sodacan. These blasons also have a gradient, even if it is a bit different than the rest. Adelbrecht (talk) 15:24, 18 October 2010 (UTC)

[1] French wikipedia doesn't follow its own guidelines?
Check the link I gave you above. The French Wikipedia features the same designs as I use.

Thanks![edit]

for helping ;) --Arseny1992 (talk) 04:19, 21 October 2010 (UTC)

Editing user page[edit]

I do not believe you understand what sock puppetry is, but that is not occurring here. It is nice you are looking for issues, and stalking my edits so closely. Oh, and thank you for your input on why you think so many disputes come about. I am sure some do find me annoying, and I am sure some find you to be annoying or a pompous ass as well. But that is not my concern, as I did not sign up for the social interaction; if you did, and if people's feelings towards you are more important than the goal of Commons and Wikipedia, that is your prerogative. Then again, if I did not have to deal with the ignorant so often, where they repeatedly ask questions to things already answered or they refuse to accept facts because they have gut feelings as to what is right, I might have been able to take a kinder and less dismissive tone. [talk] XANDERLIPTAK 07:02, 24 October 2010 (UTC)
I charged in? When was that? When I charged in and found that you were editing my user page without my input because you decided you knew best what should and should not appear on my profile? That seems more like you charging in than me. Or when I charged in and uploaded my images? Oh, I am so terribly sorry that contributing to Commons and Wikipedia is insulting to you. You don't like artist contributing, I can see that. You don't think artist should protect their work, I see that as well. Whatever your reason is for this, I don't care, but just don't take it out on me just because I upload to Commons and try to protect my work from being exploited as much as possible. I have my lifetime plus seventy years to control the copyright of my work, and I do not want anything to occur now that could potentially jeopardize my rights in the future. I am sorry you take exception to such caution, but it is something I think about and take very seriously. [talk] XANDERLIPTAK 08:17, 24 October 2010 (UTC)
Oh, so this is about me claiming to be well versed in heraldry? So when people say they know little or nothing about heraldry, but continue to argue about it anyways without any knowledge or facts on the subject, instead putting forth gut feelings or arguing simply because they do not want to admit they are ignorant to heraldic practice, I am supposed to what? More accurately, if I was a plumber, I would argue with a plumber. If I were a physician, I would argue with a physician. But if I were not an expert in the field concerned, I would take my tongue and bite it. However, this is not what people do on Wikipedia or Commons. These kind of editors like the power Wikipedia gives them to cast an equal vote, these editors also then mistake Wikipedia for a democracy. It is impossible to show the consensus of facts to these editors, so when you edit based on consensus, they revert it and claim there was no consensus when there was; instead they mistake the consensus of fact policy to mean whatever is the most popular. Hell, one editor claimed after loosing a content argument that the whole thing was fake, and that the first one to get a vote of support was him so he really won the argument because the conversation, which took several days, took too long and those 'late votes' didn't count. Several of the votes towards consensus came in that same day, but he seemed to discount those as well. And these are the people telling me what is heraldic practice and how I can't not edit on Wikipedia. You can say I have grown tired of it. I give one kind response, and if they still want to argue against fact, I jump right into cynical response because from past history, after that moment, editors like that tend to never accept fact or sources no matter what.
I am active in a couple heraldic societies, I have designed the arms of several families, written the blazons and produced the emblazons, I have also designed the arms for companies, written the blazons and painted the emblazons, I have been commissioned by members of the board of directors (who know a thing or two about heraldic practice and art, mind you) to paint their emblazons and I have been commissioned by a heraldic society to produce a heraldic manuscript that was presented to the U.S. Army's heraldic department, The Institute of Heraldry. That is the only official heraldic authority of the United States, dealing with only military and government heraldry, and my heraldic art was given as a gift to people who could produce their own, and not only was it found to be without error but the level of skill I showed shocked the heraldic experts and painters of that department. So, if you would not argue with a medical doctor about a diagnosis, or a plumber about plumbing, why argue with a heraldic expert about heraldry? [talk] XANDERLIPTAK 16:23, 24 October 2010 (UTC)
I did not change the license. I added text on the file page that was already included in the license, the moral rights that the license stated was a right reserved by the copyright holder. The issue was whether it was worded appropriately, all of which depended on what "and" meant. I altered the language so as not to revolve around this issue, and the new language was accepted. However, you personally took it to be some paranoid control over any and every aspect, which it wasn't. You attempted no help, you just tried to completely shut the discussion down because what you incorrectly perceived was occurring.
The moral rights I asserted for a couple reasons. One, to prevent the use of the images by any entity that might use it to promote anything derogatory harmful or demeaning. Two, to prevent the images being used by distrustful companies, selling the images to persons under the false pretenses. There exist many companies that insist on selling you "your family crest" without asking for any information on your family or ancestry; a coat of arms is impossible to find without such information. All these companies do is look at your name, and sell a copy of a coat of arms from someone that happens to have the same name or at least one similar.
Instead of believing me about these issues I raised (they are rather specific and random to just be made up), you let yourself be distracted by a disgruntled editor (who was shortly after banned form interacting with me for harassment and hounding) insisted these issues were not the case, but that the real issue was about him. You, for some reason, agreed that I was trying to rehash a week-dead content dispute over at the English Wikipedia about Teddy Roosevelt while secretly attacking that editor by asking about moral rights as are mentioned in the CC license at Commons. Do you see how I can't understand how these two thing follow or connect? Can you not understand why I grow annoyed and weary of these types of interactions?

Coat of Arms of Egypt[edit]

I have removed my request for the time being, while I take a look at the text. However, you are mistaken. I understand that the Arms on the flag, and as stand-alone, are not the same, however, I have uploaded my version of the arms(including a coloured shield, seperate from the gold-only shield on flag) to match the Arms as they as used on the Government websites of Egypt. I can give you links if you desire, but the websites clearly show that the Eagle is all gold, with the shield coloured like the flag. Unless you can find other sources, I believe we should use it, as it is used on the websites. Fry1989 (talk) 20:45, 29 October 2010 (UTC)

The website of the Cabinet also has a photo of the Arms mounted on a wall in the Cabinet Office, also showing the Arms as I have uploaded. Fry1989 (talk) 20:50, 29 October 2010 (UTC)
I understand what you mean. Unfortunately, all we have right now is the website of the Prime Minister and Cabinet, and the photo they have of a physical depiction of the arms on the wall. I'll try to find an article by the Government about the arms, but that will take me a while. Fry1989 (talk) 21:39, 29 October 2010 (UTC)

Tip: Categorizing images[edit]

Hello, AnonMoos!

Tip: Add categories to your images

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:

Uploadwizard-categories.png

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"). Pro-tip: The CommonSense tool can help you find the best category for your image.

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.

Attributed arms[edit]

Il y a un début d'entente possible. Alors montre ta bonne volonté en cessant de remplacer "attributed" par "humur". Ce blason n'est pas un "joke" (funny or not funny) mais un "canting Arms" aussi joke que celui de Shakespear (une lance dans une main : secoue-lance) (funny or not funny, that is the question!).--Ssire (talk) 21:45, 14 November 2010 (UTC)

Ok pour Canting arms, mais c'est une alternative à "humour", pas a "attributed". des armes peuvent être à la fois "imaginaires" et "parlantes" comme celles probablement de Shakespeare. Ce sont deux questions différentes. --Ssire (talk) 21:56, 14 November 2010 (UTC)
"I really couldn't care less whether you classify it into "Category:Heraldry of the evil emperor Xurg of the planet Zyphlon Beta Minor" as long as you GET IT OUT OF CATEGORY "Attributed arms" WHERE IT DOESN'T BELONG!!!!!!!! -- AnonMoos (d) 22:11, 14 November 2010 (UTC)"
Bon, alors reverte seulement "attributed arms" ! --Ssire (talk) 06:08, 15 November 2010 (UTC)
Je me suis fait traduire l'article en:. Il n'y a nulle part l'indication que c'est limité au Moyen-Âge/Renaissance ! L'article se limite à cette période, d'accord, mais se ne dit pas exhaustif. D'autre part, tu admets le blason File:Blason imaginaire «Héraldique».svg or celui ci est une invention de Pastoureau (XXe S. !!!), et l'héraldique ne datent d'avant l'héraldique, n'est ce pas ? Alors tu le justifies comment ?

(Note: je n'utilise pas le français pour te mettre en difficulté, et pour moi il ne s'agit pas d'être ou non un "bon garçon", mais simplement si j'essayais d'écrire ça en anglais, ça serait si tordu que tu comprendrais encore moins.) --Ssire (talk) 06:05, 15 November 2010 (UTC)

Il n'y a nulle part l'indication que c'est limité au Moyen-Âge/Renaissance
I'm sorry, but that's just not true for the English term "Atributed arms" (and I doubt that it's true for the French equivalent either). The heraldry of Hogwarts, Tolkien, Discworld, and micronations can be interesting in themselves, but they are not covered in article en:Atributed arms. AnonMoos (talk) 14:13, 15 November 2010 (UTC)
Merci de me siter le passage du texte où cela est dit, de me donner une source ! Pour ce qui est de l'équivalent français, c'est hors de doute, j'ai déjà indiqué l'emploi par Pastoureau pour des blasons de l'époque romantique.
Thanks to note (what paragraph, what line ?) the information in the En:article where it is telled that the notion is time-limited. (I can't only trust your telling !) Or in an external books (I have many En:books about heraldry). In french equivalent without douts: Pastoureau tells somes arms of romantic period by the same term. --Ssire (talk) 16:35, 15 November 2010 (UTC)

Ecoutes ! Tu ne vas pas recommencer le même petit jeux avec la catégorie "modern attributed arms" ! Ils sont isolés et ta notion de temps - que tu n'as pas prouvé - n'est de toutes façons pas celle du terme Fr. Pourquoi le terme Anglais serait prioritaires? Mais déjà prouve le (cite une seule source !) Si tu persistes sans prouver, je demande ton barrage. --Ssire (talk) 16:57, 15 November 2010 (UTC)


"Modern attributed times" is OK (though it's somewhat redundant and duplicative of the main classification Category:Special or fictional coats of arms, as VIGNERON already warned you about), but "Modern attributed times" are not actually "Attributed arms" in the main established meaning of the phrase. And it's pointless for you to complain about the hegemony of les Anglo-saxons, when the French Wikipedia article was exactly the same before you started editing it... AnonMoos (talk) 19:07, 15 November 2010 (UTC)

Ils étaient une copie servile et incorrecte, et mes interventions n'ont été contesté que par toi, au nom justement de cet hégémonie. De toutes façons même avec la version actuelle, il n'y a pas de notion de limitation dans le temps dans l'article Anglais. Je t'ai demandé de me citer l'endroit où ça serait précisé, tu ne l'as toujours pas fait: et pour cause, ça n'y est pas.
les armoiries imaginaires modernes sont la suite des armoiries imaginaires primitives."the main established meaning of the phrase" c'est le main meaning de AnonMoos, et de lui seul.
et ça n'est pas ça que Vigneron trouve redondant mais humur "il faudrait que la catégorie Humor in heraldry soit plus précise (que doit-elle contenir ? ne fait-elle pas doublon avec Category:Special or fictional coats of arms ?)." Tu racconte n'importe quoi, pour discréditer.
Dernière tentative de consilliation. --Ssire (talk) 21:28, 15 November 2010 (UTC)
Tu m'accuses d'avoir ma vision, mais c'est ce que tu fais toi-même. Personne ne vient soutenir tes propos, que tu ne sources jamais. Je vais cesser un temps la guéguerre mais je reviens en force pour te montrer qu'il ne s'agit pas de mon seul avis. --Ssire (talk) 10:22, 17 November 2010 (UTC)

Ssire's latest temper tantrum[edit]

You fundamentally misunderstand the purpose of Wikimedia Commons category descriptions if you think that where there are differences between the different language Wikipedias, each category description must then follow all the particularities of the corresponding language Wikipeda article. Furthermore, I have no respect for "l'approche française" when the "l'approche française" is merely your own personal idiosyncracies, and in fact "l'approche française" was the same as the "l'approche anglo-saxonne" before you started editing the article. AnonMoos (d) 23:07, 17 November 2010 (UTC)

You're wrong. L'approche française n'est pas que mon approche, et si l'article fr. était similaire à celui de En. avant mon intervention, c'est qu'il était incomplet. Va donc voir la position de Fitzwarin sur la question, avec de nombreuses réfences de personalités qui ne sont pas des guignols se contentant d'affirmer pour prouver fr:Discussion Projet:Blasons#Armes imaginaires et categorie "attributed Arms" sur Commons. --Ssire (talk) 04:06, 18 November 2010 (UTC)

He removed the categories? So, what now? Adelbrecht (talk) 16:37, 18 November 2010 (UTC)

Yeah, better too few than too many categories.
The new category you created is really useful. I see the category "Modern attributed arms" is not a subcategory of Attributed Arms anymore, why is that? Adelbrecht (talk) 18:37, 18 November 2010 (UTC)

Attributed arms, suite[edit]

Je pense que tu as lu, ce que j'ai mis ici: Commons talk:WikiProject Heraldry#Pour un arbitrage objectif de "attributed arms". qui montre bien que c'est la vision françaire (et pas seulement la vision Ssire)
Peut-on se mettre d'accord ainsi
une category generale definie comme "non self-clamed blazon."
des sous catégories de cette généralité qui serait;
  • l'actuel "attributed arms"
  • "modern attributed arms"
  • arms en litterature etc
Ainsi tu n'aurais pas à souffrir de la promiscuité avec Clochemerle (apparemment c'est ça qui te donnes des boutons)
Comment les appeler ?
Mon avis est que le plus normal serait de faire migrer le terme de "attributed arms" à la catégorie mère, car plus internationale, et mettre les actuels blasons limités au MA et renaissance dans un spécifique "primitive arttributed arms" (je ne sais pas si "primitive" à un sens méprisant en anglais, peut être qu'un autre terme plus noble serait plus indiqué. "first" ? )
Si tu est d'accord avec ça, pour moi c'est tout bon.
Si tu tiens absolument à garder "attributed arms" selon ta conception, OK, mais accepteras-tu que la catégories "imaginary arms" ait "attributed arms" comme sous catégorie ? (Ne me dit pas que cette catégorie est inutile parcequ'il y a déjà Category:Special or fictional coats of arms parceque la dedans il n'y a pas que des "non self-clamed arms" et que "imaginary arms" a un sens très précis en héraldique française (qui est d'ailleurs le même qu'en héraldique anglaise quoique tu en dises, mais moi, je fais le ménage chez moi)
Si besoin je veux bien faire l'effort de traduire.
Dans l'attente de ta réponse. --Ssire (talk) 22:06, 20 November 2010 (UTC)

PA keystone[edit]

What is the geometrical design--the "construction sheet"--for the keystone you've drawn as the symbol for Pennsylvania? I'm looking for the "official" PA keystone shape, if there is one. Is yours it?

Wernigeroder Wappenbuch[edit]

Thanks for all the effort you made in describing the "Coat of arms of God" and the other attributed arms. The whole book is most interesting, and I've transcribed/categorized various pages from it by now. I hope that in the long run we'll be able to have a fairly complete description (as opposed to the Staatsbibliothek's webpage that only gives a handful of names). --AndreasPraefcke (talk) 12:51, 17 November 2010 (UTC)

Language[edit]

Maybe a language tag wouldn't be necessary if it was not possible to assign a language to it, or if it was not needed- But Commons encourages multilingual tagging in most places. Eventually someone is supposed to add another language tag to the picture. Why wait to mark the English tag as English until then? At some point another language is going to be added anyway... WhisperToMe (talk) 11:58, 22 November 2010 (UTC)

  • Even if it will take a long time to add multilingual descriptions to the backlog of the images, I think that any kind of preparation that could be done ahead of time is valuable, because it saves the next guy from doing more work. Even something seemingly small as {{en|}}, done, say, 500 times, saves the next generation from doing the work
  • Plus the images in question are linked from Commons guideline pages, making them far more likely to be targeted for multilingual descriptions than, say, a relatively obscure photo on the Commons not being used in an yother projects.
  • In addition having the description being language-tagged no matter what is part of the Commons standard format, which should be promoted. Anyone trying to upload an image must select a language for the image description.

Re: Catalogue of Sects[edit]

But this one is much clearer to see, no? The identifying text is on the description, so not much is lost. I think it's a worthy sacrifice, no? Aavindraa (talk) 05:16, 26 November 2010 (UTC)

Whatever dude. It's still much easier to see and read, which is what I meant. I'm just trying to help, but since I don't really care about english dissenters, you can keep the old crappy image. Aavindraa (talk) 17:45, 26 November 2010 (UTC)
"with full identifying inormation" that is readily available as text in the metadata / summary.... The intention was to have the new image, which is unquestionably easier to read, be the main image, and then, for those so interested in the identifying information, they can read it in the summary. This is how other files I've seen on Commons are done, by the way. They crop out any extraneous stuff and then just leave any stray IDs or text in the summary. Aavindraa (talk) 02:57, 27 November 2010 (UTC)
I was just following what I'd found consistent before in many files. Regardless, I do not wish to debate about this file; the content matter is the least of my interests and I'll leave the judgment up to you. Aavindraa (talk) 05:06, 27 November 2010 (UTC)

Truth is I created the digital image file by using two public domain images so long ago I don't remember were I got them. then all i wanted was to make the new image file public domain so if you could help me get the right templet that would be awesome.

Thanks[edit]

Thanks for the SVG Oxfordshire flag. I'm trying to get round to creating bitmap versions of all the county flags of England using components already avaliable on Wikimedia Commons; because I'm not trained in the ways of vector or SVG art I was hoping someone would manage to reformat them in time.

Re: File:County Flag of Leicestershire.png[edit]

Hey, no problem whatsoever. I really ought to teach myself how to use inkscape, as there's so much stuff that ought to be converted into vector. I think I've uploaded all I can for the county flags in PNG format though (haven't found any more variants etc). Thanks for watching out for this stuff. Jza84 (talk) 21:49, 22 December 2010 (UTC)

File talk:Chess Board[edit]

Hi AnonMoos, not as all it was meant as any critics about your work, when I reported your very successful reduction of the file size. There is always the possibility to make things significant better with adaequat effort - or to spend hours and days for an optimal solution. Which the next one tops quickly with a much more optimal one...

You are welcome to add your interesting cases of SVG simplification to the collection. It might be good if some more practical solutions are contained there. My intention is to make users think before creating each simple structure with editors help. Can you attribute something to his topic? Happy 2011, -- sarang사랑 19:40, 2 January 2011 (UTC)

Your 23K file[edit]

Do you really ever intend to upload this mixture, to the Commons or elsewhere? The file contains 7 absolute independent images, of very different make. Just with first mechanical review, I reduced it from 23 082 to 19 133 bytes; but much more can be done by logical review, and even more if the accuracy is not so essential. The nice triskelion (where is it in the Commons? I know it but cannot find it again) should use cloning, as the dina-gor does, and the structur right should also think about cloning and other techniques, it seems much too large. The chain between ♡ and needs also a lot of coding. Most could be saved by re-designing, especially when not each thousandth of a pixel must be exactly the same. E.g. the fat black woman would not become uglier if drawn with less effort.

A nice collection and beautiful arabescs. Nothing of too much skill, most is drawn with pathes or simple elements. What shall I do now with that honeypot? -- sarang사랑 15:35, 3 January 2011 (UTC)

Coa Country History[edit]

Please stop edit warring over file names like File:Coa Algeria Country History (1962-1971).svg. There are a lot of coat of arms uploaded with this naming scheme, you should either change all (which would need some sort of consensus) or leave them alone. There is no current standard for heraldric images, and not much for file names in general (not even about using title case, which you seem to dislike); in the absence of that, quarreling with the uploader about the file name isn't really good for anything except harassing him. --Tgr (talk) 11:01, 9 January 2011 (UTC)

There are at least a dozen naming conventions in use for Commons coat of arms images, and that's just in English. I'm sure you can find much more than two editors for each one who consider it stupid, so that's not really a good basis to deny renaming it on the uploader's request. On the contrary, Commons:File renaming is quite clear about the uploader's request being reason enough for a rename, with or without rationale, unless there is an accepted naming convention for that class of images, or the new name is meaningless or misleading or in other ways obviously wrong. Neither you disliking capitalized titles, nor renaming it being work are very strong objections. COA image names are a mess, and they won't get any more or less messy from changing one image to conform with one set of existing image names instead of another. (Actually, the new name is slightly closer to WikiProject Heraldry recommendations by containg the nature of the holder of arms.) It would certainly be nice if there was a specific guideline on naming coat of arms, but vexing users who have annoyed you by disregarding your arguments is hardly the right way to achieve that. --Tgr (talk) 14:47, 9 January 2011 (UTC)

Probably beacause he has a poor command of English, and he is frustrated he has to explain himself to get his own image renamed. It isn't realistic in a multilingual project to expect all contributors to eloquently describe their motivations, and it is a huge waste of resources anyway. Who cares if the name is great or not? More importantly, who cares if you find it great or not? It should work, and it should not result in much time wasted over it, that's all. That is why it is important to have a clear policy of when a rename request is acceptable, to avoid wasting time. The current policy, which pretty much says that uploader requests are always acceptable, and other only in exceptional circumstances, is pretty clear in that regard. A policy saying uploader requests are acceptable, unless at least two random guys think the new name is kind of stupid... not so much. It would lead to an endless stream of catfights and petty vengeances, which is what this conflict looks to me. The name of the image is not in any way visible to the end user, so it has little importance; optimizing it is simply not worth the time lost and feelings hurt. Either have well-defined rules on how an image should be named (which, for better or worse, we don't), or have well-defined rules on who decides the name (that we do, and they say the uploader gets to decide in most cases). --Tgr (talk) 17:23, 9 January 2011 (UTC)

Urantia Book[edit]

I didn't know the TOC had a different copyright status than the rest of the book, so that makes the filename a non-issue. If you can delete it, you've got no objections from me.

File:Wapen van Drogenbos.svg[edit]

Seems a little odd for a municipal coat of arms -- not sure that pavilions are too usual... AnonMoos (talk) 22:53, 28 January 2011 (UTC)

It's not really a municipal coat of arms, it was the coat of arms of the House of Arenberg, who used to rule the village. The village has taken over their coat of arms. And is this really a pavilion? I didn't really think of it as one, but now that you mention it, I should change the top part to make it resemble the source file more closely. Adelbrecht (talk) 08:59, 29 January 2011 (UTC)

SVG fixing[edit]

Please, don't worry. I have stopped to try fix SVG pictures. I succeeded a few times, and when I saw that it doesn't work for some pictures, I stopped. My attempts don't injury any one: I let broken pictures instead of not appearing ones. I don't know how to do to repair these pictures. You could teach it to other people instead of louding "THAT'S THE TIME TO STOP USING THAT PARTICULAR METHOD". One said to me there are thousand of such pictures that must be fixed. It would be better that dozen of wikipedians can work fixing them than an only one, which is the unique man in the world able to fix broken SVG pictures. Cheers Arno Lagrange 13:50, 20 February 2011 (UTC)

Ho ! so a gentle man you are that you withdraw my post here ! Is that OK with File:Conters i P wappen.svg? Instead of bawling out on people, it's better to teach them how to do better. My attempts to fix pictures didn't any injury to anybody. Instead of nothing the coat of arms began to appear. It was not necessary to tell me twice to stop attempting to fix pictures while I didn't made any more attempt. Please be nice not to bite wikipedia contributor when they do something you think not good, but nor not bad. Cheers again Arno Lagrange 18:31, 20 February 2011 (UTC)

UB ?s[edit]

You've got some keen observation. I was wondering when you knew the Urantia Book's ToC had a different copyright status from the rest of the book (either you knew beforehand, or delved straight into the judgment and picked it up--how long has it been now? about a month, a couple weeks?--a month ago). I've perused the various court proceedings and their summaries, but never noticed this particular peculiarity. If you'd care to share, I'd be interested in your thoughts on the book and its origin, as well as your...ummm..."fascination" with trinity inspired symbols (for lack of better terminology).

File:Ulica Kenobiego.jpg[edit]

The uploader is not an author of this (and many others btw) image. OTRS permission is required. Masur (talk) 06:29, 25 February 2011 (UTC)

  • which really doesn't unambiguously indicate the specific problem in the context of this particular image - polish translation of it, as well as english original version (It has an author and source, but there is no proof that the author of the file agreed to license the file under the given license.) clearly tells what is wrong. But if you think opposite, maybe there is something wrong with this (and other) templates in general? They were designed to indicate problems with images without any additional informations and are always accompanied by template to be inserted at uploader's talk-page, which also gives all neccessary details. And these templates aren't something new or untypical. As you know there are part of whole image problem notification system and are always used in a way as I'd used them.

Yeah, it's getting really bad. He's blanked one of my files 4 times now, removing all the cats, and editing the info to say it's his work when it's not. I've had enough of his BS. We need to do something. Fry1989 (talk) 19:57, 25 February 2011 (UTC)
Fry1989 is totally wrong, e.g. concerning Military Roundel of Finland pre-1944.svg, look at: the photos in http://www.panssarimuseo.fi/kehys-e.html and the article http://www.virtualpilots.fi/feature/artikkelit/kunniakas_hakaristimme (column Hakaristit panssareissa). The swastika is black, not blue. --WPK (talk) 14:55, 2 March 2011 (UTC)
PS. Mannerheimkruis, Cross of Mannerheim or Mannerheim Cross is a Finnish decoration, not a coat of arms.
Regarding the Mannerheim cross, as I'm sure you've now noticed Anonmoos, the problem is that WPK tried to upload a 100% different image over another. That's not acceptable, I'm sure you agree, and I told him to upload the medal seperately. Whether he does or not is his problem. As for the Finnish tanks roundel, that's what I've been asking for for some time, a link to a photo. Instead he gave me two links, one that was broken, and the other to a website that give me different language options to enter it, and I really didn't want to have to go fishing. Fry1989 (talk) 20:08, 2 March 2011 (UTC)

I'm not talking about THAT link. That one works fine and had you given me it in the first place, there wouldn't have been this problem. You gave me two other links. One did not work, and the other gave me a black page with 4 seperate language options. Why you didn't just give this 3rd link the first time is beyond me. No, I'm not perfect, but what am I supposed to do with a link that doesn't work and just gives me a blank white page with "redirecturl" on it? Fry1989 (talk) 23:32, 2 March 2011 (UTC)

File:Coat of Arms of Catherine Middleton, Princess William of Wales.svg[edit]

Not really, the image is suppose to depict Kate's coat of arms alone; as a wife and a Royal Highness (after 29 April that is). However there are many examples of a couples' coat of arms, used for wedding decoration or other occasions. e.g. Just one coat to represent two married individual. Come to think of it... this could be a couple's coat, however they are usually depicted with two shields side by side (Example 1: William's parent's as a couple), not impaled (all squished into one) (Example 2: William's mother as Princess of Wales (note: she has her own motto)). But William's arms impaled with the Middleton arms is Kate's alone (just like the second example). The same principal applies to all other royal wives (explanation on Camilla's arms for the College of Arms). However this is a hypothetical depiction, no actual source have used this blazon, I may have jumped the gun a little.... :) Sodacan (talk) 22:27, 19 April 2011 (UTC)

No, it lists them as Π.Γ.Δ.Μ., and surprisingly between "Sierra Leone" and "Slovakia" (for Slav Macedonians?).

File:Melchior - Heraldique imaginaire.svg[edit]

Dude, if you want to upload your own different version, do so under a different name, but do not falsify the image with respect to File:Ingeram Codex 055.jpg, File:Wernigeroder Wappenbuch 021.jpg etc. By the way, in the middle ages, a pentagram was considered to be a heraldic "mullet" or spur-wheel much more often than any kind of "star"... AnonMoos (d) 09:38, 5 May 2011 (UTC)

Le dessin ne respecte pas l'original, non pas en raisons des "mullet" mais sur la disposition. Pastoureau blasonne "semé" ce qui est certe contestable, mais pas plus faux que le dessin actuel. La source donne 7 mullets 3, 3, 1 le tien: Azur seven mullets or 2-3-2. Le non-sens est la, pas sur le nombre de branche. Perfectionne tes connaissances héraldiques, dude ! --Ssire (talk) 10:01, 5 May 2011 (UTC)

1) Please add header formatting ("== ==") when you start a new subsection on someone's user talk page, because failing to do so is annoying.

Excuse, j'ai oublié. --Ssire (talk) 10:29, 5 May 2011 (UTC)


2) It's true that User:Eugenio Hansen, OFS's upload is not entirely faithful to the original source images, but the best response to that would be to ask him about it, not to upload an image which is much more inaccurate. Furthermore, in the middle ages, "D'azure, un semé d'étoiles" would have generally NOT have used pentagrams (which at that time were usually not considered to be "stars" at all in heraldry), so your uploaded images is rather anachronistic, and you would seem to need to "perfectionner vos connaissances héraldiques, dude". By the way, if you were trying to insult me through inappropriate tutoiement, then you would seem to profoundly misunderstand how little English speakers have cared about the whole phoney issue for the last 3 centuries or so... AnonMoos (d) 10:15, 5 May 2011 (UTC)

Mon tutoiment n'est pas du tout insultant: c'est une coutume sur fr:wiki. Ton "dude" me parraît tout aussi familier, sinon plus.
Quand je parle en français, je fonctionne avec ma culture. L'anglais de commons n'a aucune culture - ou devrait n'en avoir aucune - donc j'ignore ce que peu être ce que "ou would seem to profoundly misunderstand how little English speakers" etc phrase que d'ailleurs je n'ai pas réussit à comprendre.
L'héraldique est un langage qui évolue, et le respect de l'époque est un snobisme discutable. Si tu es attaché aux formes d'époque, alors il faut aussi blasonner en vieux français. Comme ça personne ne comprendra plus rien. Cordialement quand même. --Ssire (talk) 10:29, 5 May 2011 (UTC)
Je suis quand même surpris que tu défendes ce Melchior étoilé (de 6 branches ou non - peu importe) alors que les deux références qui sont ta base, donne pour Melchior un homme plus ou moins primitif, de sable portant banière et bouclier, alors que les 7 "mulets" sont attribuées contradictoirement à Caspar ou a Baltazar ..La source étant germanique, il est vraisemblable que ce soit une resucée (remake) à leur sauce, donc assez peu fiable....Cdlt -- 10:36, 6 May 2011 User:Ssire
tu fais à ton idée, du moment que le miens n'est pas changé. Toutefois celui que tu as dessiné se blasonne en français : semé d'étoiles de six rais, représentation médiévale ou non. Il est donc inacceptable sur fr:wiki. ... Cdlt --Ssire (talk) 13:48, 6 May 2011 (UTC)
I strongly suspect that that isn't entirely true (see File:Larousse pour tous Blason Tome 1 (1907) page 193.jpg etc.), but I have no great interest in going to the university library and intensively researching the matter, so I'll leave it there... AnonMoos (talk) 04:12, 7 May 2011 (UTC)
Les exemples donnés sont blasonnés au minimum, l'étoile présentée est bien une étoile, il n'est pas précisé "de six raies" de la même façon que les croissants ne sont pas indiqués "couchés", ou la foi "vétue" etc. La page citée ne dément pas mon propos, d'autant plus que le larousse est la dernière référence à consulter en matière d'héraldisme. C'est bourré d'erreurs ! --Ssire (talk) 08:57, 7 May 2011 (UTC)
The examples given are emblazoned minimum, the star is realy a star​​, it is not specified "six lines" in the same way as croissants are not indicated "lying" or faith "clad" etc. . The page cited does not contradict my point, especially as the Larousse is the last reference to consult concerning heraldry. It is full of errors!
En fait, c'est moi qui commence à douter que le moyen-age ne connaissait pas l'étoile à cinq rais. D'après l'armorial de Gelre on trouve des étoiles à cinq rais [[3]]; [[4]]; [[5]] certes moins nombreuses qu'à six, mais dans ce cas, tu noteras que le blasonnement français le signale (en abrégé: (6) ) [[6]]. Mon sentiment est que la différence est plus géographique qu'historique. Cdlt --Ssire (talk) 11:11, 7 May 2011 (UTC)
In fact, I'm beginning to doubt that the age-Middle did not know the star with five points. According to the Armorial Gelre there are stars with five points! While fewer than six, but in this case, you'll notice that the reported French blazon (abbreviated (6) ) My feeling is that the difference is more geographical than historical.

Flag of West Midlands[edit]

Hi AnonMoos,

Just wondered if you could revisit the File:Flag of the West Midlands County.svg file. The lattice work is meant to appear to cross over (see the coat of arms as an example or the original version of the file), but revisions in March 2011 have put the lattice work on the same structural level (quite possible as a mistake/oversight). Jza84 (talk) 22:46, 9 May 2011 (UTC)

Hi there - thanks for getting back to me.
The "criss-cross" pattern that runs through the middle of the flag is meant to consist of two independent pieces (one is meant to represent a "W" letter, the other a "M"). They are meant to "weave" over and under one another, but presently just sit together and create small diamond shapes. Does that help? Jza84 (talk) 08:50, 10 May 2011 (UTC)
I'd be much more inclined to follow the convention of official renderings than to make a guess. Whilst the url linked above is fairly low res (as is an annoyance of the internet), there are other independent renderings which do the same (see here too for example). I guess that's why the original artist of the SVG flag did the same.
I haven't got the blazon to hand (I'll have to try and dig it out), but I know that the "W/M" part is not meant to depict/indicate 'knotwork', rather make reference to metalwork or leadwork (for which the West Midlands is famous for). I'm confident this is a quick win for us at Commons. Jza84 (talk) 11:06, 10 May 2011 (UTC)
No worries. I'll try elsewhere. Jza84 (talk) 13:23, 10 May 2011 (UTC)
Hi again, just a note that the blazon seems to make reference to "two interlaced dancetty barrulets". Not sure if that helps. I'd make the change myself, but haven't any SVG background or skill. Jza84 (talk) 11:58, 11 May 2011 (UTC)

Melusines[edit]

On Wikimedia Commons, almost all categories (except for place names) are in English. If we were using French, it would be "Mélusines en l'héraldique" or whatever, not "Melusines in heraldry". The worst thing to do is to mix things by using a word according to different meanings in different languages indiscriminately. AnonMoos (d) 20:36, 21 May 2011 (UTC)

Concrètement, ça veut dire que si Commons utilise l'anglais, il faut conformer l'héraldique française à l'héraldique anglaise ??? En héraldique française, la sirène à deux queues est une sirène pas vraiment caractéristique. Par contre Melusine et son baquet sont de symbolique très différentes (la sirène est séductrice et destructrice, Mélusine est maternelle et constructive). Selon la mode anglaise, il faudrait que Melusine ne mérite pas d'entrer dans la catégorie melusine ??? Dans quelle catégorie alors ??? De plus je ne suis pas convaincu que même en héraldique anglaise, appeler "melusine" les sirène à deux queues soit orthodoxe. Il faut creer une catégorie sirène à deux queues, et laisser à Melusine, ce qui est vraiment Mélusine (plus proche du dragon que de la mermaid d'ailleurs!) --Ssire (talk) 21:51, 21 May 2011 (UTC)
En fait, il s'agit de deux représentations du même symbole. Les germaniques la représente certes à deux queues, mais couronnée, il ne s'agit donc pas de n'importe quelle sirène à deux queues. La représentation française (Latine en fait) la représente dans son baquet se coiffant de la dextre et tenant un miroir de la senestre. Il convient donc de les mettre dans la même catégorie, ou alors de diviser en deux sous-catégories Melusine in ĝerman heraldry, melusine en french heraldry. --Ssire (talk) 22:05, 21 May 2011 (UTC)
Lit ça:
In European legends and folklore, Melusine (or Melusina) is the name of a spirit of fresh waters in sacred springs and rivers. She is usually depicted as a woman who is a serpent or fish (much like a mermaid) from the waist down. She is also sometimes illustrated with wings, two tails or both. Melusine is sometimes used as a heraldry figure, typically in German and Scandinavian coats-of-arms, where she supports one scaly tail in each arm. She may appear crowned. The Coat of Arms of Warsaw features a siren (identified in Polish as a syrenka) very much like a depiction of Melusine, brandishing a sword and shield.File:POL Warszawa COA.svg Elle n'a pas de queue double !!!--Ssire (talk) 22:30, 21 May 2011 (UTC)
It really doesn't make any sense to fill categories indiscriminately according to different words which happen to be spelled the same (or similarly) in various different languages. Otherwise Category:Pets would have a very different meaning for English speakers and French speakers!! Fox-Davies gives only "mermaid with two tails" as the meaning of the English heraldic term melusine, so that's what I'm going by. I trust Fox-Davies a good deal more than I do you, since while you have a great deal of knowledge of heraldic details, you often apply them in a very narrow way, and lose sight of the main point, ending in such unfortunate results as your image of the coat of arms of Melchior (where you gave a visual interpretation according to different blazoning conventions than were used in reducing the original arms to a blazon, resulting in a historical absurdity). AnonMoos (d) 01:18, 22 May 2011 (UTC)
Pourquoi Fox-Davis serait le seul critère pour definir Melusine ? Ce n'est pas Ssire qui parle ici, mais la totalité des auteurs français qui définissent mélusine. Mais, il n'est pas de ma volonté d'imposer la vision française aux autres de même que je refuse que soit imposé la vision britannique. Prenons un auteur "neutre" D.L.Gralbreth dont tu ne contesteras pas la valeur, n'est ce pas ? Pour lui, sirène et mélusine sont synonyme (mes excuses, je n'ai que la version traduite à ma disposition) : " La sirène ou mélusine a la tête les bras et le haut du corps d'une femme; les jambes sont remplacées par une ou deux queues [...]la forme à une queue est plus ancienne (ISBN 2-602-00042-6 page149) Dans le même ouvrage,p195il parle des "tenants", distinguant les sirènes des mélusines, ces dernières illustrées (fig344 File:Heraldique OrnExt Tenant Melusine.jpg) comme je l'ai fait - et Gralbrecht n'est pas de culture francophone ! Riestap (encore un non francophone) donne melusine comme une sirène dans sa cuve. On fait quoi , une catégorie "melusine germanique" et une "melusine latine" ?
Ajouton Neubecker (Suisse de culture germanique) "la sirène, mi-femme mi-poisson et sa cousine la mélusine se baignant dans une cuve" (ISBN 2-04-027127-9 page123 --Ssire (talk) 08:40, 22 May 2011 (UTC)
- en ce qui concerne Melchior et ton appréciation "historical absurdity" je te rapelle que l'héraldique est un langage et non de l'histoire, et un blason ancien peut se dessiner en moderne, au même titre qu'un roman du moyen age peut s'écrire en typo "arial". D'autre part il me semble que tu avais soutenu les fleurs de lys "romantique" pour un "france ancien" à mon avis tout à fait "historical absurdity".--Ssire (talk) 06:49, 22 May 2011 (UTC)
I'm sorry, but non-placename categories are in English, and so it's English meanings of the words which are relevant for them, and that's the end of the matter -- otherwise pictures of people farting could be validly placed in Category:Pets... AnonMoos (d) 21:15, 22 May 2011 (UTC)
It's not the english meaning, it's the meaning of Fox-Davis. Tell me one other specialist that said the same ! Using English don't imply use the english heraldy ! Commons be international, not servant of english culture. --Ssire (talk) 23:14, 22 May 2011 (UTC)
Bon OK pour "mélusine" (avec é.). Mais tu n'as pas pu me citer un autre auteur qui définisse Melusine comme une sirène à deux queues !! Entre parenthèse, toi qui défends l'authenticité des étoiles à six branches pour le moyen âge, tu fais fort en défendant l'appellation "melusine" pour des sirènes telles celle de Mouila, certes à deux queues, mais quand même vachement africaine ! file:Coat of arms Mouila.png. Au moins ça fait rigoler les vrais héraldistes. --Ssire (talk) 09:56, 24 May 2011 (UTC)
J'ai effectué quelques recherches et d'entrée je constate que ton affirmation selon laquelle "melusine" est LE concept britanique por la sirene à deux queues est abusif. En fait c'est la vision de Fox-Davis et pour l'instant de lui seul (ton renvoi à l'encyclopedie est non significative, car c'est une reference de seconde main, et s'appuie sur Fox-Davis). J'ai ceci, qui me parrait autrement plus sérieux : John Woodward et George Burnett: A Treatise on Heraldry, British and Foreign Page 302-303:
"In it the syren is usually represented holding in each hand the long tresses of her luxuriant hair, sometimes she bears a comb; at others a fish. Often in ancient sculpture, as still frequently in German Armory, the mermaid is represented with a double tail, held up in either hand, a tail replacing each leg; and this I believe to be the more correct mode of delineation, though it is not, I think, known to British Armory, except as the crest of WALLOP."
"Such a mermaid appears in the arms of the Bavarian family of BAIBEL (Gules, a mernaid with two tails which she holds in her hands all proper). The Bavarian BENDERS use: Azure, a mermaid proper, holding her two tails sable; and the Augsburg family of FEND carry : Gules, a syren proper holding in her hands her two tails or. Such a syren (proper) is the crest of the great Roman house of COLONNA.The DiE RIETTER of Nürnberg bear: Per fess, sable and or, a mermaid holding her tails proper, vested gules and crowned or. The BERBERICH of Nk iirzburg, have as arms: Gules, a syren with two tails, crowned and holdht; in each hand a fish all proper. Or, a syren proper holding her two tails vert in her hands, crowned with an antique crown or, is the coat of the Counts DA SCHIO."
Aucun blasonnement n'utilise melusine, mais mermaid / syren with two tails.
Je redemande la rectification des catégories. --Ssire (talk) 19:55, 26 May 2011 (UTC)
Re: Woodward and Burnett -- You seem to have missed a very basic point: A book which does not mention the term "Melusine" cannot be an authority on the meaning of the word "Melusine"! AnonMoos (d) 20:06, 26 May 2011 (UTC)
Je n'ai pas missed a very basic point ! Si un auteur blasonne "mermaid whith two tail" et non "melusine", c'est indiscutablement parceque pour lui une sirène à deux queues n'est pas necessairement une mélusine ! Certe, ça ne prouve pas que Melusine soit conçue britaniquement avec deux queues, mais ça prouve que toute sirène à deux queues n'est pas nécessairement une melusine (confer la sirène noire du Gabon) Donc le "melusines" britanique est au mieux une sous catégorie de "two tailed mermaids" à créer. Mais je n'ai pas fini mes recherches --Ssire (talk) 20:28, 26 May 2011 (UTC)
It could mean lots of things -- that the authors didn't know about the use of the word "melusine", that they didn't think it was important, that they omitted it on grounds of space, etc. etc. Such purely negative evidence in fact has very little decisiveness. And I still take Fox-Davies to be more authoritative than User:Ssire. AnonMoos (d) 20:50, 26 May 2011 (UTC)
Ceci est une remarque ridicule qui ne fait que cacher ton manque d'argumentation, car je n'ai jamais avancé mes propres opinions mais opposé celles d'auteurs réputés en sitant mes références, ce que tu ne fais pas toi, qui affirme "c'est comme ça chez nous, point barre" et qui ne peut étayer ses affirmations que bien pauvrement. Fox-Davis, comme tous les auteurs héraldiques, français , britanniques ou autres, ont tous leur marottes et leurs faiblesses. S'en tenir à un seul ne me semble pas faire preuve d'espris critique. --Ssire (talk) 21:10, 26 May 2011 (UTC)
You cited sources which were NOT about English terminology, or which OMITTED any mention of the term "Melusine" (instead of giving a specific definition of Melusine in ENGLISH heraldic usage which would be significantly different from that given in Fox-Davies), and you were only looking for sources which supported your personal point of view, and therefore the end result of your labors is not much. AnonMoos (d) 21:24, 26 May 2011 (UTC)
You're wrong ! mes sources certes étaient française et mon point de vue était de faire coexister sous une appellation commune les deux conceptions (pourquoi confisquer le terme à la seule vision britannique ?) Mais je découvre mieux: c'est que cette fameuse vision britannique n'est que celle de Fox-Davies. Pour Woodward and Burnett, j'ai arrété ma lecture trop tôt: toujours page 303: "The latter family also used as crest a syren in a tub, holding a mirror. This is the famous MELUSINE, used as crest and supporters by the house of LUSIGNAN, in memory of ISABEL...." La voilà bel et bien citée, Melusine, et elle n'a pas de double queue...Ce n'est pas ici l'avis de user:ssire, mais bel et bien d'auteurs héraldistes de culture britanique...--Ssire (talk) 21:36, 26 May 2011 (UTC)

Royal Crown of Bavaria.svg[edit]

Thank you for attempting to clean up the code on my file Royal Crown of Bavaria.svg. However, the image is now larger than the last saved version from May 9th, the gradients that I removed are back and the row of diamonds above the band are now behind the leaves and not in front. If you would, I'd rather you remove the code of the May 9th verson and save it as the default.

And while you're at it, could you look at two of my other files, Crown of Württemberg.svg and Crown of Bulgarian Queen.svg and see if you can remove code or whatever to make them smaller? I don't know what I'm doing that is making these files so big. Could the amount of strokes in the gems of the Württemberg and Bavarian crowns be the cause of the files being so large?

Anatomie[edit]

Hello,

I reverted you on this file because I would like to make many pictures of them based on the same layout (800x600px) in order to present them as a slideshow on Wikipedia (same scaling is more fluent in that case, blank margin adjustment won't be the same on the further images). Maybe this is not the right method for a slideshow, but for now I just reseted the original file. Thanks anyway. See you. Nanoxyde (talk) 07:24, 9 June 2011 (UTC)

My deletion request about that christian group and your comment.[edit]

Hi AnonMoos, thank you for your comment on my deletion request of today. It made me think. I hope we will cooperate again. Your work for Commons, as far as I see, is impressive. I'm not so talented, unfortunately. I just add categories to pictures. Sincerely. --Giorgiomonteforti (talk) 20:00, 9 June 2011 (UTC)

Astarte[edit]

As for the boshet/basket case, it was a typo. Here's the source: [7] There's at least six or more credible references that state the same thing, so it's not like I'm making it up. --Camocon (talk) 18:59, 11 June 2011 (UTC)

Re: File:Astarte with horns.jpg[edit]

Note that Astarte's horns have morphed from Isis's realistic cow's horns into a true crescent Moon (source: [8]).

And, if you're still in doubt... here's a google book search for "Astarte+horns+crescent moon" . (book search: [9]) --Camocon (talk) 19:44, 12 June 2011 (UTC)

Re: File:Moon Goddess Tanit.jpg[edit]

Yes, pure speculation...

After the fall of Phoenicia to the Babylonians and Persians, Carthage became the most powerful Phoenician colony in the Mediterranean and the Carthaginians annexed many of the other Phoenician colonies around the coast of the western Mediterranean, such as Hadrumetum and Thapsus. They also annexed territory in Sicily, Africa, Sardinia and in 575 BC, they created colonies on the Iberian peninsula.

Carthaginian Iberia: Art and artefacts of Phoenician influence in Celt-Iberia [10]

Four Celto-Iberian “Ladies”: of Elche, of Cerro de los Santos of Baza and of Guardamar dated around 4th century BC. The Lady of Elche [11], found in 1897 in l’Alcudia, 2 km from Elche, Valencia, is now in the Archaeological Museum, Madrid, as are the Ladies of Cerro de los Santos[12] and of Baza[13]. The Lady of Guardamar [14], found in 1987, is in the Museum of Alicante. When the Lady of Elche was found, it was thought to be of Hellenic influence, but since the discovery of the Guardamar Lady in 1987, in the Phoenician site of Guardamar, Alicante, Phoenician (Carthagian) would seem to be the appropriate designation.

Lets not make this personal. I'm not going to argue with you, or debate the validity of my contributions to commons, because I've already licensed them and that's what I'll stick to, until proven otherwise. Just curious, are you an admin? --Camocon (talk) 23:45, 13 June 2011 (UTC)


I'm just trying to make things easier to find here. Most of my derivative works (and otherwise), are images that I use (or, will use) on wiki pages. --Camocon (talk) 00:24, 14 June 2011 (UTC)

Category:Horned Goddess[edit]

Please try to conduct your activities on Commons in a way which leads to a useful result, rather than merely indulging your personal (and apparently somewhat eccentric) beliefs... Category:Horned Goddess was basically completely and utterly useless here, since 1) Depictions of women/goddesses with crescents on their heads are not usually considered to be "horned".


Just for the record, here's the description of the Category that you ruined: This page is for horned goddesses that wear a headress (i.e., crown) with two horns (or an upright crescent moon that's symbolic of horns), and goddesses that have two horns attached to their head.

I plan on creating the wiki page "Horned Goddess". Please don't stalk me over there. LOL

There's a lot of "eccentric" scholars, historians, and authors, that compare the upright crescent moon to horns. I could list dozens of examples...

While it should be noted that the "horns" of Tanit are the two points of the crescent moon, whereas those of Ashtart, for example, are a bull's horns, the lines remain the same. [16]

In the western Mediterranean, the Phoenician colonists called Astarte Tanit. Her most common symbol was the crescent moon (or horns). [17]

Often the horns are shown alone, and this may have given rise to the notion that the disc was the full moon and the horns the crescent moon. So, he holds, Astarte was given the horns of the crescent moon. [18]

Porphyry says that " she was sometimes represented with a cow's head, the horns of which served at the same time as the usual symbol of sovereign power, and as a representation of the crescent moon." [19] --Camocon (talk) 01:22, 16 June 2011 (UTC)

I may use that image in the article. I'm not pushing any bunk theories. Everything that I've talked about with you (minus the Lady of Elche/Tanit theory), is supported by a long list of historians, book authors, and etc.--Camocon (talk) 01:58, 16 June 2011 (UTC)

SVG improvement[edit]

Dear Anon, I was wondering if you could improve Voyager_plaque.svg as the graphic seems to be inaccurate. It would be greatly appreciated. Kind regards. --Adam Brody (talk) 17:32, 14 June 2011 (UTC)

What error did you specifically have in mind? All I did was crop the margins of the file. You're not confusing it with the Pioneer plaque, are you? -- AnonMoos (talk) 20:41, 14 June 2011 (UTC)
I saw your answer only now, because I expected it here, where I made the request. Thank you, anyway. Yes, you only cropped the margings, but that's not my point. As you seem to be very experienced in creating and modifying SVGs, I was hoping that you could improve Voyager_plaque.svg. Have a look at the outlines, for example of the "train in the rotary", they are not accurate. I'm not sure, but I think the directions respectively the angles of some lines aren't correct, too. And no, I'm not confusing it with the Pioneer plaque. --Adam Brody (talk) 14:22, 18 June 2011 (UTC)
I'm really not an SVG artist as such, and I don't use Inkscape to edit SVG files (only to test or convert SVG files). I do technical fixes of SVG's by opening the files in a text editor (not Inkscape) and doing selective edits, and I convert PostScript vector source code into SVG (Category:Generated by PostScript), but redrawing things is not really my talent... AnonMoos (talk) 18:19, 18 June 2011 (UTC)
Alright, thank you, anyway. --Adam Brody (talk) 16:45, 19 June 2011 (UTC)

File:Complexe argilo-humique.svg[edit]

Hi, sorry about the misunderstanding, I didn't want to skip your work, but since I didn't use it (I had to restart from my own file) I thought it would be useless to let all these intermediate versions. It is the first image I ever create in svg with Inkscape, and I don't feel really proud of having my drafts (and yours) staying in Commons. But if you feel it is better this way, then I don't want to upset you Smile Haltopub (talk) 08:51, 24 June 2011 (UTC)

OK then, let's let it as it is...Haltopub (talk) 11:27, 25 June 2011 (UTC)

elimination of useless perspective declarations[edit]

Hello AnonMoos, first my compliments and praise for your good work. I've seen you doing an elimination over 45k of useless perspective declarations on a SVG, very interesting! The suprising question, how did you do it? Maybe I can also use this feature. Kind regards, --Arch (talk) 15:31, 24 June 2011 (UTC)

Seal of Ohio[edit]

Since you're able to edit files by code rather than inkscape, which doesn't add as much to a file, do you think you could take the original of File:Seal of Ohio (Official).svg, and make the elements solid black? I did it through inkscape a while ago, and it added nearly 100 kb to the file. Fry1989 (talk) 01:31, 26 June 2011 (UTC)

Thanks Fry1989 (talk) 02:35, 26 June 2011 (UTC)
Could you also get rid of two odd things in there? There's a letter G, and a circle, both right in the middle of the seal, barely noticeable as it's only a very thing white border and no fill. Fry1989 (talk) 03:41, 26 June 2011 (UTC)

Hi,

I think, the http://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/File:Coa_Hungary_Town_Hajd%C3%BAb%C3%B6sz%C3%B6rm%C3%A9ny.svg isn't an Ouroboros. It's an other symbol from the http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Order_of_the_Dragon. http://hu.wikipedia.org/wiki/S%C3%A1rk%C3%A1ny_Lovagrend The Ouroboros: The dragontail is in the dragon's mouth. Endless symbol. The Order of the Dragon symbol: The dragontail around the dragon's neck. There are a cross shaped damage on the dragon. The dragon was the muslim on the Order of the Dragon symbol.

File:POL Gorzów Wielkopolski flag.svg[edit]

PL Przemek -- Most browsers have not been capable of rendering SVG files inline in an HTML page until very new and recent versions, and Wikipedia may not be quick to embrace this solution, since it would lead to inconsistent display between different browsers, and dealing with the various different bugs of different browsers (instead of just the bugs of "rsvg")... AnonMoos (talk) 10:11, 19 July 2011 (UTC)

Before worse browsers won't support SVG, it could be also included to the pages by <img/> or <object> tag, not only inline. Of course a such solution is hopeless way to support SVG. I don't like it when browsers or websites trying to be compatible with each other. Both of them should be only compatible with W3C's recommendations. But when it's about money or number of views (as in case of Wikipedia), ideology taking shit... But ye, you're right, we just have to wait until bugs of SVG renderer would be fixed --PL Przemek DYSKUSJA 05:35, 20 July 2011 (UTC).

Re:File:FlorenceCoA.svg[edit]

If 31 kbytes are "significantly", I assume that it is due to the fact that there are more informations in the file. I have aligned the geometries and made them symmetrical, as well as some lights and shades closer to the original. The differencies are not dramatic, but you can compare the orignal with the new one. --F l a n k e r (talk) 09:50, 24 July 2011 (UTC)

Eh eh, so I probably don't have enough interest in other meanings of the word "optimizing"... Bye, F l a n k e r (talk) 19:18, 24 July 2011 (UTC)

Re: P.S.[edit]

I've decided not to create the "horned goddess" article. I'll probably add a section about Canaanite goddesses with horns (i.e., Qetesh, Astarte) in the article Horned deities, and a section in Wicca about the High-Priestesses "moon crown" in Gardnerian Wicca.--Camocon (talk) 16:53, 25 July 2011 (UTC)

Category:Coats of arms of knights of the Légion d'honneur (Empire of France)Category:Coats of arms of knights of the Empire (Légion d'honneur)[edit]

Il existait (en fr:héraldique napoléonienne) 3 catégories de Chevaliers de l'Empire :

  • Les chevaliers légionnaires (qui avait la Légion d'honneur : leur signe distinctif était une croix de LH d'argent stylisée sur pièce honorable de gueules) ;
  • Les chevaliers non-légionnaires (qui n'avait pas la Légion d'honneur : leur signe distinctif était un annelet d'argent sur pièce honorable de gueules) ;
  • Les chevaliers de l'Ordre de la Réunion (qui avait l'Ordre de la Réunion : leur signe distinctif était une étoile de l'Ordre de la Réunion d'or stylisée sur pièce honorable d'azur).

Par conséquent, il faut (d'après moi) 3 catégories :

My persecutor[edit]

Please see here. My persecutor abusively accuses me of various things, while he himself could be accused for defraudation of money paid to him - he rovers around Wikipedia instead of doing paid research. Constantinople (talk) 09:03, 13 August 2011 (UTC)

Abused verbally when trying to remove OR[edit]

These nordic runes are not mine but communal, usable by some insane pagans. Additionally, i even don't know what NSBM means, maybe New Soviet Border Movement? Constantinople (talk) 19:27, 13 August 2011 (UTC)
