UN member states animation[edit]

Hi there, a great .gif animation you have made here: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Image:UN_member_states_animation.gif

I noticed one error with it: On your map, Tibet is a part of PRC the entire time, but Tibet wasn't a part of PRC before 1959. I would edit it myself if I had image editing skills. :/ —Preceding unsigned comment added by Audunum (talk • contribs) 21:40, 23 November 2008 (UTC)

Hi, thanks for the compliment! The map is based solely on internationally-recognised country borders, so any countries that declare independence but, like Tibet, aren't/weren't recognised are not represented on the map. Besides, the history of Tibet isn't a clear-cut one, as indicated by this map from the Qing Dynasty, and this one from 1914 during the Republic of China era.

Birds Nest Image[edit]

Hi Joowwww,

My name is Horacio and I am from Argentina. I have been very impressed by your pict of the Bird Nest Stadium (790px-远眺“鸟巢”_"bird's_nest"_distant_view.jpg) and wonder if I could you use it for commercial work (printed brochure of China). If yes, please tell me which are its costs and restrictions of use. My e-amil address is horacio.raspeno@gmail.com

Looking forward to hear from you. Kindest regards, Horacio

Hi Horacio, I am not the owner of that image, I am just the one who uploaded it. It was from Flickr, you can see it here: http://flickr.com/photos/75275041@N00/2827230091 and contact the photographer (livepine) if you wish. Regards, --Joowwww (talk) 22:25, 6 December 2008 (UTC)

File:China blank map.svg[edit]

Hello, I'm working on a geolocation\mapping project on hebrew wikipedia, and this image is better than the one we use so far (File:China-equirect.png). The only problem is that I need the geographic limits of this map and to know if it uses Equirectangular projection, or other projection. Thanks, GilCahana (talk) 02:08, 14 December 2008 (UTC)

Hi GilCahana, I'm afraid I don't know which exact projection was used for the original map I traced [1] but I did once try and make a pinpoint locator map template but it didn't work because the map isn't equirectangular. The latitude and longitude lines on the original are curved so I'd have thought that it's a globe shape, I'm not sure what that would be called.
The map we use on the English Wikipedia is the same as the one you use, probably also due to the equirectangular problem. There is a way of using a map with curved latitudes and longitudes, it's at en:Template:Location map skew. Unfortunately it's beyond my capabilities so perhaps you would have a better time with it! Regards, --Joowwww (talk) 20:51, 15 December 2008 (UTC)

UN Evolution map[edit]

Great map! this is wonderful! Could you please fix the status of Tiwan. Why is the Balarusian SSR and Ukrainian SSR dotted before the collapse of the Soviet Union? This should also be fixed.

Your evolution map for the United Nations as great as i said above; could you please make an evolution map like it for the League of Nations? This would improve that article imensely. Right now they have a map on it that just states whether members stayed, left or rejoined but do not state when, and it is a bit messy. 99.226.115.81 01:42, 16 June 2009 (UTC)

Hi, thanks for the comments. Taiwan is shown as a member because the UN considers it part of China. Also, the Belarussian SSR and the Ukranian SSR are dotted because they had their own membership in the UN before their independence from the Soviet Union. I'm afraid I don't know enough about the League of Nations to make a new map and also I don't have the time any more to do so even if I did. Regards, --Joowwww (talk) 09:49, 16 June 2009 (UTC)
Thank you for your time. If you are not knowledgeable enough on the subject of the LN and do not have enough time to make the map I will try my best but don't know what program to use to make a motion GIF. I use Paint to edit still maps but that program only does still image files not multiple framed images. 99.226.115.81 00:07, 19 June 2009 (UTC)
I used Paint to make the maps and then used a program called Easy GIF Animator to make the gif. It's a free program that can be downloaded. --Joowwww (talk) 08:59, 19 June 2009 (UTC)
Hello fellows! I am an editor here on the Commons and saw this request...and did it! The file is uploaded at File:LN member states animation.gif. I am trying to fulfill as many requests as I can by searching talkpages and descussion pages here on the Commons. Maps & Lucy (talk) 15:08, 2 December 2009 (UTC)

Tip: Categorizing images[edit]

Hello, Joowwww!

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:

Uploadwizard-categories.png

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]]
[[Category:Comets]]

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.
