Hominidae chart.svg

Dear Fred,

I am not sure who the originator of this common file really is, but the file info says you may be. It seems to me there is a problem with the branch "hominini" as it includes Pan. One of the English article references HOMINIDAE – African Great Apes which definitely does not include Pan under hominini tribe.

I want to use it in a Thai translation of the "Human evolution", but I am not sure how I should proceed to perhaps "correct" the problem, but right now I am thinking of creating another image separately. If you could help, however, all the articles referencing the image will be corrected too.

Sorry, I don't have a clue about anthropology. I merely vectorised an existing raster copy of that phylogeny chart. If the original is wrong then so is mine, however, if the original is correct... :) Needless to say, I don't know what "pan" is. However it was included on that chart in your above link. As a Bonobo monkey under the gorill branch apparently! If you're absolutely certain that Pan shouldn't be included then I'll remove it and/or make any other corrections you deem necessary. --Fred the Oyster (talk) 08:59, 9 September 2014 (UTC)

Template VVA[edit]

Hi - the purpose of the template vva is not to offer a choice of various image looks, but to link to an identical image in another image format. The choice of various image of a blsonnement is offered by the category. If the image in question does have the same shape of shield, different outline or another type of charge it should not be qualified as a vector version of the same raster image. The File:Blason73.PNG has seven SVG equivalents that meet the blasonnement but only one which is a true vector version of the same rendering. -- Maxxl² - talk 14:29, 14 September 2014 (UTC)

The purpose of the vva template is to do both things, and it does absolutely no harm in having them both there. You are being merely "pointy" by fucking around with it. Do as you wish, pedants/jobsworth piss me off and I'm not going to get blocked again as a result of dealing with one. --Fred the Oyster (talk) 15:49, 14 September 2014 (UTC)
Thank you very much for your kind lesson in civility and politeness. I am always glad to learn from experienced long-time commons users how to address and name partners here aiming at a better cooperation. Thanks again. -- Maxxl² - talk 16:13, 14 September 2014 (UTC)
I'm not here to be collegial, civil or co-operative. I'm here to supply artwork. And from what little I've seen of your behaviour you are here to ignore Wil Wheaton's advice. Please don't come to this page again. --Fred the Oyster (talk) 16:26, 14 September 2014 (UTC)
