Hello, ArnoldPlaton!

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:


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]]

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.

Hello! Thank you the new maps. Do not you don an article in Romanian about the republic? Doncsecz (talk) 08:18, 1 February 2012 (UTC)


To make things a little easier, if you are the uploading contributor and you have again uploaded an image, then if you tag the first copy with {{badname}} we can more quickly check and delete. The check process that we use for {{duplicate}} is a little more involved and presumes that they are different people's image, and some judgement is required.  — billinghurst sDrewth 11:49, 23 February 2012 (UTC)

  • Thanks for the advice. Will do. - ArnoldPlaton (talk) 13:06, 23 February 2012 (UTC)

The ethnic map of Thailand is great, I hadn't seen a map like this so far. However, I see a little typo, the city of Udon Thani in the northeast is spelled as Ubon Thani. Check the other 1974 map, you will see the error. Further south there is another city, Ubon Ratchathani, which I think created the confusion.

Septinsular Flag[edit]

Hello! You've done a great job with the flag! It's way better than the previous one! But I have some comments to make. First of all the face of the lion should be human, actually St' Marc's head and it should look like the emblem of the Septinsular Republic, or modeling it after the emblem or the flag of the Republic of Venice should be even better, as the septinsular flag was created after the flag of the Venetian Republic. Finally, although a detail, but an essential one, the arrows should be taller and should bare a banner which reads 1800, the date of the establishment of the Republic; you can see that in the septinsular emblem. This last detail is not featured in the Union Jack version of the flag, which was used during the British period. Amicably, --RoseAphro (talk) 11:30, 24 March 2012 (UTC)

Hello ArnoldPlaton. First of all thanks for the maps you've made. Can you please also make one more map?

Kingdom of Georgia after Fragmentation


  • Please redraw first image into the format of SVG as it has in the second image by giving all kingdoms and principalities its borders but one green colour as it is in the second image.
  • Please include only Kingdoms of Kartli, Kakheti and Imereti with Principalities of Guria (It's written Adscharien what is wrong as it is Guria), Svaneti, Abkhazeti, Samegrelo and Meskheti (Samzche should be written as Meskheti).
  • Please include only these Georgian lands.
  • Please do not include any more names but only the names of these 3 Georgian kingdoms and 5 principalities.
  • Please do not include the neighboring states or lands.

Thank you so much in advance. Regards. GeorgianJorjadze (talk) 10:14, 13 May 2012 (UTC)


Hi Arnold! What does it mean "PBUH" in File:PBUH.svg? What about a more meaningful filename like File:Sala allahu alayhi wa sallam (vector).svg? -- Basilicofresco (msg) 07:41, 23 July 2012 (UTC)

Greetings! I've seen you've made some maps for Georgia in the past. Do you still make these kind of maps? I need couple of new maps for Georgia. Hope to hear from you soon. Warm Regards. Silvio. SilvioRusso (talk) 23:29, 23 November 2012 (UTC)

Mistake Map[edit]

Hello ArnoldPlaton, i have found misktake in your Kartvelian Languages map. Geograpic location of Georgia and other counties (their borders , regions and rivers location) are wrong. For example border between Georgia and Russia goes on Greater Caucasus mountains, but in your map Greater Caucasus mountains are far northerly than in reality. You wrote that your map based on Colchis_And_Iberia map observe it and your map and you'll understand your mistake. And please replace it with correct map :)--Giorgi Balakhadze Flag of Georgia.svg 14:17, 20 February 2013 (UTC)

  • I see what you mean, but it wasn't clear at first. On future ocassions, being a little bit more specific then "observe it and you'll understand" will help a lot. I fixed the map. If there is anything else you see, please let me know. - ArnoldPlaton (talk) 14:55, 20 February 2013 (UTC)
    •  :) When i wrote geographic location i thought that you'll guess it easy. To understand my mistakes i'm always observing other's works. Perhaps i would have to write „physical map“ :). Good work.--Giorgi Balakhadze Flag of Georgia.svg 21:31, 20 February 2013 (UTC)

EU election 2014 - Croatia[edit]


2014 EU elections will include a Croatia constituency. Can you please make a version of this map that includes Croatia? Thanks. --Jay942942 (talk) 09:54, 21 May 2013 (UTC)

  • I'll update the map on 1 July, when Croatia joins the EU. -ArnoldPlaton (talk) 16:09, 21 May 2013 (UTC)

Caucasus Emirate Map[edit]

hallo arnold Platon

can you give me sources and translations for your placenames on the Caucasus Emirates Map delyeshu buro-glava nogay -shankar and the others thx

mistake in flood map on balkan[edit]

I know that u do not know, but there were many floods in Croatia as well, in village Gunja, Pleternica, Požega, you should put it on your map. Based on this map, flood only happened in Serbia and BiH, but it hapend in Croatia too. You are giving the wrong picture, based on your little mistake. In Gunja 9 people died, i think it is good enough to place it on the map..your information is based on call for help, which our premier did not not know why..

File:EP 2014 results stripes.svg[edit]

There are some changes in ep groups. Danish people party joined ECR. Soon there will be another changes so map may need update.
