Flags[edit]

Hi, I noticed that you have uploaded flags to WikiCommons. Do you think there is something you can do about Image:Northern Ireland flag.gif? It is smaller than many other flags on WikiCommons + somebody thought it was a copyvio. It would be great if Commons had a nice NI flag with a known creator.

Greetings![edit]

Hello! I hope you're well. I noticed that you have integrated an SVG version of the [Image:Flag of Japan.svg Japanese flag here] and on Wikipedia. Nice! I have made, altered, or appropriated a wealth of similar SVG images (e.g., Canadian flags) and have the ability to create them anew. How can I assist? Are there any naming or other conventions to follow? Pointers?

Thanks again! (If possible, comment on my Wikipedia user page.) E Pluribus Anthony 15:15, 2 October 2005 (UTC)

I think the best naming convention is to use "Flag of Foo.svg", where the Wikipedia article about the flag is at "Flag of Foo". For example, I put the flag of Washington, D.C. at Image:Flag of Washington, D.C..svg, not Image:Flag of the District of Columbia.svg or any other variation. Of course, there's no hard and fast rule, so it's all good as long as you upload your flags! (There's one technical issue: make sure your flags are at least "300 pixels" wide, since MediaWiki refuses to scale SVG up in most cases.) dbenbenn | talk 17:40, 2 October 2005 (UTC)
Hello again! I hope you're well. I just wanted to let you know that I'll be uploading a revised SVG Flag for New Brunswick (to replace the one you placed in the commons recently). While the current one is very good, the one I have was extracted from an official New Brunswick website/PDF (I've more such images, too) and, methinks, is more accurate; there are slight differences between the two. Thoughts? Thanks, and more to follow! E Pluribus Anthony 21:41, 5 October 2005 (UTC)
Please do! The quality of the flags at openclipart.org isn't that good. They're better than nothing, but they can usually be improved on. dbenbenn | talk 23:31, 5 October 2005 (UTC)
Thanks for your reply; will do. I hear you: by the way, my one contribution at openclipart.org is the flag of Canada, replacing other former 'horrible' renditions, which is (should be) the basis for the one(s) in Wikip/media. Enjoy! E Pluribus Anthony 00:19, 8 October 2005 (UTC)
The Canadian flag I found at openclipart (Image:Flag of Canada.svg) is by someone else. Do you have a better version? dbenbenn | talk 08:00, 8 October 2005 (UTC)

Flag of Sweden[edit]

Hi E Pluribus. You wrote to me on my talk page, that you supported using the commons flag. I have waited doing this for now, awaiting a svg flag before going ahead. Do you know if there is such a flag yet? I have not found one. // Fred Chess 18:33, 22 October 2005 (UTC)

Hi there! I hope you're well. First of all, forgive my silence; I've been swamped. I think another user has taken the liberty of creating an SVG of the Swedish (and other) flags; if not, it is fairly simple enough that I can create it. Thoughts? E Pluribus Anthony 17:19, 29 October 2005 (UTC)
There is Image:Flag of Sweden.svg. dbenbenn | talk 17:55, 29 October 2005 (UTC)
Yes! (Hello again!) Merci beaucoup! E Pluribus Anthony 19:59, 29 October 2005 (UTC)
Okay great! It is now being used on English Wikipedia. / Fred Chess 16:36, 30 October 2005 (UTC)

Proportions of Canadian flag[edit]

Hi. I just found this link. I'm not sure whether you're aware of it, but it would be relevant for the design of Image:Flag_of_Canada.svg. --P3d0

Image:SchengenAgreement map.png[edit]

Hi E Pluribus Anthony, I have deleted this map today because there is another identical map Image:SchengenTreaty Map.png. The last update to this map I have integrated in this through a new upload to Image:SchengenTreaty Map.png. It is not neccessary to hold two identical maps. --Raymond de 15:25, 23 January 2006 (UTC)

Hi again, someone has changed the map in all WPs, so forget my message :) --Raymond de 16:03, 23 January 2006 (UTC)

World map[edit]

Hello, I just notice you of this error, I know it's just a mistake so that's fine, But I don't want do it again... < tired today.... O.o >. If you update this map again with other things, think about this some indian's islands. Bye :] Yug

Delete template[edit]

Hi! If you have found a redundant image, please use the template {{redundant|New image name.jpg}} rather than the delete or deletebecause. Redundant images are often already used on wikipedia and a speedy deletion will eliminate those links unfairly. Thanks! Bas parler voir 23:57, 25 January 2006 (UTC)

HI! Again! You're using the wrong template and images that are being used in projects are being put on the speedy delete page. Please do not use the template {{db}} from now on. Use {{redundant}} Cary "Bastique" Bass parler voir 15:35, 14 February 2006 (UTC)

Tag at Image:Flag of New Brunswick.svg[edit]

Hi Pluribus. Could you replace the {{PD-flag}} tag at Image:Flag of New Brunswick.svg with {{PD-self}}, just so it's totally clear? Thanks, User:dbenbenn 03:16, 28 January 2006 (UTC)

Map Request[edit]

Hi E Pluribus Anthony,

I don't know if this is an appropriate way to contact you, if not then I sincerely apologise.

In any case, I wanted to ask if you are able (and willing) to provide a larger size version of your world map (this one: http://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/Image:Newworldmap.png)

I am creating a home made boardgame based on a well known train game. I would like to find something like your image, but with a height of 180cm (or 6ft, ~5100 pixels). That would put the width somewhere around 355cm (or just under 12ft, ~10,050 pixels). The height is the determining factor so it fits on the surface I have available.

I don't know if you have an original in this size, or whether you only ever worked on the original at a smaller size and therefore don't have anything bigger. But I thought I would ask, as I am not sure what the easiest option is for me to find such a suitably sized image. When I increase the image size myself, the quality deteriorates considerably, which I am trying to avoid.

Any help would be appreciated, you can e-mail me at nico 44 AT ntlworld . com, I also saved my 'talk page' to my favourites (my logged ip address) if you prefer to only reply that way. Thanks in advance,

- Steve
