From lion d'Or contributer- Mlane[edit]

Thank you for taking the time to explain.

JPEG is certainly easier for me to do. The instructions were to stay in JPEG, if it was photographs, but otherwise PNG. My results didn't look like photos in my mind, so I reasoned that must mean to do PNG. On my screens (laptop and iPhone) they both look the same. I'll follow your advice. Thank you.

As to the original: I'm not sure if that is the original. I went back to the the Inn and took another picture, since I wasn't sure I kept the first one. I'll have to revisit the new uploaded image again, as I had so many versions. I'm not sure what I did.

As to size, I certainly understand the concept, and agree, why double the download. However, the execution may take me a little time to work out.

As to the filtered image, after looking at the filtered image, I'm surprised I was pleased with it. My memory is that out of curiosity, I used a total of 3 or 4 filters from the smart phone, and possibly 2 in Photoshop, non of which I remembered. I think it was the first time I had done something like that, and I was shocked that it worked. Simple pleasures.

Thank you again for the advice. Mlane Mlane (talk) 13:25, 9 August 2011 (UTC)

Okay, but I'll refuse to discuss one topic on more than two talk pages… ;-) –Be..anyone (talk) 14:07, 9 August 2011 (UTC)

HIV Image deletion[edit]

You have opposed the deletion of the image used on the HIV page by claiming that the image is in fact encyclopedic even though it does not have a reliable source. How do you reconcile this obvious contradiction? Please read the discussion on the HIV talk page and reconsider your decision.DavoDavoDavo (talk) 05:14, 22 November 2011 (UTC)

JFTR, this was about one of the deletion requests for File:HIV_Virion-en.png. The proponent added his comment on my user page :-(Be..anyone (talk) 06:56, 22 December 2013 (UTC)

File types, Video, Software... Help pages[edit]

Thank you very much for cleaning up all those help pages! --McZusatz (talk) 19:37, 19 January 2014 (UTC)


Take a look at the talk-page on this file: The cross must be thick. Wereldburger758 (talk) 10:21, 18 March 2014 (UTC)

Oops, moving my reply to the linked talk page, sorry. –Be..anyone (talk) 11:43, 18 March 2014 (UTC)

File:אריה מכונף על חלק העליון של הבניין גנרלי.JPG[edit]

Hi, I'm sorry I messed up your formatting. Please be advised that the text you are using for (is it Spanish?) is incorrect, as is the Hebrew that you reverted to. The winged lion has NOTHING to do with Jerusalem and everything to do with the Lion of Saint Mark and the Generali insurance company. I corrected the English text; perhaps you could base your translation on that? Thanks, Yoninah (talk) 19:00, 1 April 2014 (UTC)

Answered on your talk page, I'll "archive" (= blank) the continuation here soon, because the new content was presumably fine, only the wiki markup was broken. –Be..anyone (talk) 08:13, 9 October 2014 (UTC)


Hallo, ich bin auf deine edit requests gestossen und habe sie aktualisiert, gemäss der neueren Leistungsfähigkeit einiger templates. Ich versuche das publik zu machen:

Every SVG file uploaded to Wikimedia Commons should show
  • how it was made: use template {{Inkscape}}, {{Adobe}}, {{HandSVG}} or whatsever
  • whether it is W3C valid or invalid: set the appropriate parameter, e.g. {{Inkscape|v}}

Der Vorteil von zB {{Adobe|Be..anyone|v}} ist die automatische Unterkategorisierung, so dass nicht alles in die grossen Töpfe Valid SVG (mit 25000 Einträgen) oder Created with Inkscape (mit 72000 Einträgen) geschmissen wird; und dass das bei Bedarf zentral in der Vorlage angepasst werden kann. Gruss sarang사랑 06:01, 14 April 2014 (UTC)

Einige Monate später, okay. Allerdings habe ich noch nie ein SVG selbst erzeugt, das war alles nur von unklar über {{InvalidSVG}} zu {{ValidSVG}} auf drei Wegen:
  1. Proprietäres InkScape-Zeug, wo nur die Sodipodi-DTD URL geflickt werden musste.
  2. Hoffnungslose Fälle, und eine valide "optimierte" Alternative war vorhanden, aber das invalide Original war schreibgeschützt.
  3. Ditto einmal Müll -> rsvg -> Skript -> validiertes SVG tiny 1.1 oder SVG basic 1.1.
Im ersten Fall wäre InkScape validiert o.ä. gut, aber im dritten Fall wäre es irreführend, rsvg entfernt den proprietären Kram komplett.  Be..anyone (talk) 07:42, 9 October 2014 (UTC)
Nachtrag, neuer Stand der Kunst ist scheinbar {{Uf}}, gefunden auf File:CC-devnations white.svg. –Be..anyone (talk) 08:49, 9 October 2014 (UTC)
Postscript, Uf is broken. –Be..anyone (talk) 08:07, 17 October 2014 (UTC)
The {{Uf}} isn't broken, as I told you earlier. It is just a bit inconvienient when used on some places, then it needs the parameter#4-hyphen. At most places it works fine; nevertheless, setting the hyphen works always. But it needs to be set explicitely by parameter, it should not be the standard.
Layout-Anpassung: Wenn die beiden Boxen (Validation und Tool) nebeneinander kommen, wie es zB "Uf" macht, wird die valid/invalid-Box in dezenterem Layaut erstellt. Aber nur dann. sarang사랑 18:18, 10 November 2014 (UTC)
Ich habe meinen Senf nun schon bei der Löschdiskussion verbraucht, aber 17.10. war doch früher als 2.11. (s.o.). Werkzeug+Validität zusammen unter other fields= wäre nett, aber irgendwelche Puristen hassen das. Werkzeug+Validität+Autor macht keinen Sinn innerhalb {{Information}}, und der Autor muss für wikidata innerhalb sein, da hast Du vielleicht zuviele Sachen auf einmal verbessern wollen. –Be..anyone (talk) 19:12, 10 November 2014 (UTC)
Aktueller Stand, {{Uf}} wird nicht gelöscht, aber vermutlich umbenannt. Inzwischen kann es auch Eier legen und Kaffee kochen. –Be..anyone (talk) 21:23, 2 December 2014 (UTC)
Update, apparently {{igen}} is the designated successor of {{Uf}}. –Be..anyone (talk) 22:01, 8 December 2014 (UTC)

Closure of Commons:Categories for discussion/2014/04/Category:Three Sisters[edit]

The current Category:Three Sisters could be renamed Category:Three Sisters (volcano system) or something like that so that Category:Three sisters (siblings) could be created. As it is right now, if anyone finds a photo with three girls in it who are all sisters, it'll go in Category:Three Sisters which is where a volcano system is. I don't think Reykholt fully grasped why the category was up for discussion. --Mjrmtg (talk) 18:33, 26 October 2014 (UTC)

@Mjrmtg: Please correct me, but the volcanoes are already a redirect from Three Sisters, and Three sisters is available for another redirect to a disambiguation Three sisters (siblings), or similar solutions. –Be..anyone (talk) 21:13, 26 October 2014 (UTC)
I didn't notice you created that redirect, thank you :) --Mjrmtg (talk) 23:04, 26 October 2014 (UTC)
Admittedly I also only saw it after I closed this debate as an "obviously very old answered question about some S vs. s issue"; my bad, nothing was obvious. Reykholt created the redirect before the CfD. Smile fasdfdsfoiueire.svg. –Be..anyone (talk)


dass sich da ausgerechnet drei Germans treffen um über Trivialitäten zu diskutieren... Wo JuTa so ein Problem erkannte sehe ich immer noch keines, und IMHO haben seine diesbezüglichen Aktivitäten die Wikipedia nicht wesentlich verschönert. Es ist vielleicht typisch deutsch, dass wir uns alle um mehr Ordnung bemühen? Jedenfalls, danke für deine Hilfe in dieser Angelegenheit -- sarang사랑 15:54, 9 December 2014 (UTC)
