Re: SVG bug[edit]

I also noticed that. When I open the file in Inkscape it looks fine. And a bitmap/ODF export in Inkscape also works fine. I have uploaded a higher resolution svg. but in this version the text in the infor box is missing in the displayed versions which looks fine when opened in Inkscape. I have also added a hi-res png and changed the image on the pH indicator page with png for better display.


  • Accualy, it has a wrong name. The right one is: 1-cyclooctyl-3-ethyl-2-methylhexane. How can I rename it?

Commons:File naming has all the details of that process. Let me know if you need help getting it done (I have a gadget enabled in my preferences that makes the process lots easier). DMacks (talk) 21:47, 7 November 2014 (UTC)


I pick up images from google which are easily available for all to be uploaded on their profile...if there is any other way to upload please let me know Cpavlankar (talk) 22:48, 14 February 2015 (UTC)

I do not know a good way. But the way you are doing it is often against Wikimedia policy and often against the law as well. See Commons:Licensing for the official policy, and a nice flowchart explaining the things you are allowed to upload. DMacks (talk) 03:45, 15 February 2015 (UTC)

Reuse images from an ACM publication[edit]

Hey Mack, I have been going through the journals published by ACM and all the publication material seems to be copyrighted by "American Chemical Society". See for example, here. Noce that they place a copyright tag and in bold. Does this mean that the published reactions and material in the text is copyrighted too? If yes, then can they be reused in WikiPedia articles? I might be missing info on appropriate license tag that someone might have created here. Moreover, ACM seems to strongly oppose open access (here). Enlighten me. --Rubber Duck () 20:41, 23 April 2015 (UTC)
