Kartor för kommuner i Skåne[edit]

Hej, jag ser att du skapar lägeskartor för skånska kommuner. Jag håller på att framställa lägeskartor för alla svenska kommuner enligt följande design (se bilden till höger). Alla som jag frågade, till exempel sv:Användare:Väsk, menade att vi kan ersätta alla kartor för Skåne med de nya. Så vänta bara ett tag, tills jag har skapad dessa.

Foto av en plansch[edit]

Hej, jag undrar om ett foto av en plansch inte klassas som copyvio? Jag antar att fotografen inte är skaparen av planschen. /Lokal Profil 19:23, 3 July 2006 (UTC)

Det är ju alltid svåra bedömningar i sådana fall. Bilden består ju inte bara av planschen med Jim Morrison. Å andra sidan, alla bilder här ska vara användbara i något Wikimedia-projekt och vem är intresserad av en artikel om hur "Juntas" pojkrum ser ut? Dessutom finns ju Image:Jim Morrison mugshot.jpg som man kan använda istället. Om du vill kan du anmäla bilden till Commons:Deletion requests. Thuresson 22:48, 3 July 2006 (UTC)

I see my error. The goal of that project was to eliminate adjectival forms that would be less commonly guessed at than the noun form. Since there is no real good noun form name that is known, I propose I revert it back to Sami people. Is that acceptable? -Mak 16:21, 21 August 2006 (UTC)

Your suggestions[edit]

Thank you for your suggestions. After I implement the changes suggested on my talk page, would you allow me to continue exporting image information? Poccil 14:54, 9 September 2006 (UTC)

Sure, it's important to get the images of EN Wiki since all to many people upload newer versions over images there rather than the Commons version. Also if it says "info on EN Wiki" rather than "originates from EN wiki" and a line about "feel free to integrate this info" then anyone who gets anoyed by the info can integrate it (if needed) and then clean the talk page =) /Lokal_Profil 20:27, 10 September 2006 (UTC)

Road signs[edit]

For sure I did not know about that becasue tha images were not tagged and looked as just another of the thousands of copyvios we have here. In addition I always check that the user has been notified of the problem, as I did in that case. In any case, deleted images can be restored or reuploaded if needed. Barcex 12:52, 12 October 2006 (UTC)

Any admin can restore a deleted file, but in this case care should be take to tag them inmedialety (otherwise sooner or later other admin will be deleting them). If you can give me the list of files affected I can restore them, but they should be well tagged not to be deleted again. Barcex 12:32, 14 October 2006 (UTC)

I restored all the files, please tag them as soon as possible. I do not know about icelandic copyright law so I leave that details for you :) (Anyway, I'm not so sure that a derivative work from PD is also PD, but of course, there is no "added value" in this case to the original PD).

Autotrace program[edit]

Såg att du gjort en svg version av Image:Mariestads vapen, Nordisk familjebok.png, undrade bara vilket program du använde för att autotrace? Programet jag själv använder har nämligen diverse nackdelar. /Lokal_Profil 03:57, 5 November 2006 (UTC)

Jag körde med Inkscape fast I det fallet krävdes en del manuellt arbete med bitmappen eftersom vissa linjer blev så tunna så att de försvann i den vektoriserade versionen. // Liftarn
Samma som jag då. Vad jag reagerade på var att din autotrace såg annorlunda ut än den jag själv gjorde i Inkscape. Inser nu i efterhand att du antaglighe gjorde en inverterad trace och sedan break apart.... Genom att du gjort mig nyfiken så har jag lärt mig något nytt, tackar så mycket =) /Lokal_Profil 18:25, 5 November 2006 (UTC)

Crosses in heraldry[edit]

What is a Cross Bottony etc. if not exactly a classic example of precisely a "Cross in Heraldry"?? Please give some plausible explanation of your actions, or I feel rather inclined to revert your edits wholesale. P.S. It's spelled "heraldic", not "heraldik"[sic]. AnonMoos 00:07, 30 January 2007 (UTC)

Crosses in heraldry indicates a coat of arms with a cross in it. These images of crosses are cross symbols. Specifically they are cross symbols commonly used in heraldry and suitable for use by users designing own CoA's. They are therefore very suitable to be inte the category "SVG coat of arms elements". There is however nothing intrinsincly heraldic about the images. I have also linked to the categories Category:Cross symbols and Category:SVG coat of arms elements-Crosses from "Crosses in heraldry. The heraldik spelling is a simple slip which then got copypasted ad infinum. /Lokal_Profil 00:19, 30 January 2007 (UTC)

Crosses in heraldry (continued) : Saltire / St. Andrew's cross[edit]

Good evening,

You deleted last night the link to the category Crosses in heraldry I had put on Category:Saint Andrew's cross - Croix de Saint-André. The aim of this last one was only to be a subcategory of Crosses in heraldry because some people consider saltires as a subtype of crosses (and this dependency can be useful for them to find what they look for), whereas in French crosses and saltires are considered on the same level, both as ordinaries. If you delete the dependency to Crosses, you delete the only reason for the category Saint Andrew's cross to exist.

To be consistent, I propose you chose one of the two following solutions:

  1. ask for the complete deletion of the category Saint Andrew's cross - Croix de Saint-André as a useless copy of Saltires;
  2. keep it as an help for those who look for saltires as a subcategory of crosses, and put back the dependency between the two categories.

I hope I was clear enough. Do not hesitate if you want to discuss this subject further. Thanks in advance, Bruno Vallette 19:52, 30 January 2007 (UTC)

I removed Category:Saint Andrew's cross - Croix de Saint-André from Crosses in heraldry since it is a redirect to Category:Saltire in heraldry, which I put into Crosses in heraldry instead. /Lokal_Profil 22:38, 30 January 2007 (UTC)

Kyrkor , kategorier[edit]

Hej. Vi som laddade upp kyrkbilder bestämde oss för att bara kategorisera artiklarna och inte bilderna, för vi tyckte det gav bättre ordning. Det var väl user:Väsk som började med att ladda upp sina kyrkbilder hit, under 2005 eller så. Så vi har gjort så ganska länge, för då tänkte vi att man skulle ha antingen kategori eller artikel men att båda är onödigt.

Jag vet inte om det spelar någon roll egentligen. Jag tänker i alla fall själv inte ta bort några fler kategorier.

Image:Radical.jpg[edit]

Hi,

I saw your edit on Image:Radical.jpg. I have uploaded this image from the English wikipedia a long time ago, where it was released under an appropriate license (GFDL I believe). However, I created an alternative svg version Image:Radical.svg, which is now used on all wikipedia's. Therefore, although your edit is incorrect, the image Radical.jpg can be deleted right now. Do I have to do something else to request a deletion?

Annabel 16:25, 4 April 2007 (UTC)

The image is classified as without source because it doesn't state who made it. It might be that the english image page has/had that information but only an admin on en.wiki can investigate that.

Image:Svenska kyrkan vapen.svg[edit]

Kyrkliga vapen är inte registrerade hos Patent- och registreringsverket och skyddas alltså inte på samma sätt som kommunala vapen. Anledningen till att lagstiftaren inte gav Svenska kyrkan möjlighet till detta är förmodligen att man räknande med kyrkans skiljande från staten (Clara Nevéus, "Ny svensk vapenbok"). Thuresson 19:33, 5 May 2007 (UTC)

Jag la mallen på den (och andra kyrkovapen) är att texten inte specificerar direkt specificerar att det bara gäller kommunvapen. Vapnet är registrerat i den heraldiska databasen som nr. 608. Men om det enbart är patent- registreringsverket som syftas så säg till så plockar jag bort mallen från stiftsvapnena också. /Lokal_Profil 20:35, 5 May 2007 (UTC)

I saw you requested Neuron he.jpg to be replaced with Neuron, LangNeutral.svg to which I may add the labels myself.

How can I do that?

Thanks, Yuval Madar 20:37, 6 May 2007 (UTC)

There are two ways of doing it. The first and easiest one is to ues Neuron, LangNeutral.svg and put the hebrew text in the caption. The other alternative is to open the svg file in a program like Inkscape and then remove the circles and add the text there instead. I'm not sure how well incscape deals with the hebrew font though so ou might have to convert the text to paths. Whichever you decide I'd be very happy if you added the hebrew translation to the Image:Neuron, LangNeutral.svg#Description section. /Lokal_Profil 21:13, 6 May 2007 (UTC)
I'm afraid I didn't quite understand the first option. Do you mean it is possible to replace the baloons with a,b,.., g with labels in my native language? Or do you suggest that I write down under the image what each letter means?
Is it possible to transfer the labels as parameters to the image when using it in Wikipedia? Yuval Madar 06:12, 7 May 2007 (UTC)
My suggestion was something like what's to the left. I know that thats how for example the japanese.wiki uses it. If you want to change the letters to hebrew script then you'd need to open the image in inkscape and edit it and then reupload it under a different name. As far as I know there is no way to import the labels as parameters although if such a thing exists it would be very useful. /Lokal_Profil 10:12, 7 May 2007 (UTC)
That doesn't sound good enough for me. I'd rather the viewer wil see next to each part what it is instead of going up and down checking each label. Therefore, I'd rather it won't be replaced, as the replacement is not satisfactory.
I'll see if one of the Hebrew Wikipedians might know how to work inkscape and will be able to add the Hebrew labels to the image. Yuval Madar 19:35, 7 May 2007 (UTC)
Ok. The only downside to adding the text directly to the image rather then the caption is that you can't wikilink from the words. If you need help adding the hebrew text you can always try User:Benherz or User:Mintz l who have both claim to be native hebrew speakers and good at vector graphics. /Lokal_Profil 19:44, 7 May 2007 (UTC)

categories[edit]

I saw your discussion at User talk:Juiced lemon. Commons:Categories#Category structure does not prevent an SVG map category from being categorized both by media type and topic. It says "All categories (except CommonsRoot) should be contained in at least one other category,"

Please also see w:Wikipedia:Categorization#Categories do not form a tree. It says "each category can appear in more than one parent category." It says "it may be convenient to think of parts of the category graph as being like multiple overlapping trees."

So Category:SVG maps of Mexico can be categorized in both Category:SVG maps of North America and Category:Maps of Mexico. --Timeshifter 15:24, 5 July 2007 (UTC)

Re: County locator maps[edit]

Just in case you didn't see this (it is on one of my subpages), here is how I make my PNG maps. The census maps do not include the Canadian, Mexican and Russian borders, but the maps from the National Atlas do, so I get those borders there. I have not yet done five states (California, Alaska, Michigan, Washington, or Texas), so those would be a very good place to start making SVG maps, thanks! Ruhrfisch 02:03, 1 August 2007 (UTC)

Då kanske du tycker att de borde använda sig av detta vapen istället =) /Lokal_Profil 01:31, 4 August 2007 (UTC)
Intressant att anmärka är att om vi slaviskt återgett den "officiella" versionen av vapnet, hade det antagligen inte varit tillåtet att ha bilden här på Commons. --Himasaram 06:51, 5 August 2007 (UTC)
Kul att Wikipediadebatterna numer har spridit sig till en landets största tidningar. De har, tack vare din insats, gett Wikipedia ett erkännande genom att det anses värt att verifiera de faktauppgifter (om än grafiska sådana) som presenteras på Wikipedia. Det går inte tolka på annat sätt än att Wikipedia nu är en av de största källorna till kunskap för åtminstone Sveriges befolkning. Sedan undrar jag av nyfikenhet, som heraldiskt intresserad och insatt om Dagens Nyheters fråga: "Skillnaden mellan Lerums och Wikipedias vapenköldar [sic!] syns tydligt. Frågan är om det elakhet eller oförmåga som ligger bakom 'förvanskningen'." Är det med avsikt eller en egen tolkning? Deltarosigma 13:43, 5 August 2007 (UTC)
När jag skapar vapnena så använder jag helst element som sedan tidigare existerar på Commons. Vid tillfället så var den tjuren den bästa som fannns. Nu har jag hittat några bättre bilder men med tanke på DN och Lerum så känner jag inte för att ändra längre =) /Lokal_Profil 15:56, 5 August 2007 (UTC)
Just den tjuren är ursprungligen från den polska staden sv:Głogóws vapen. Identisk med den version som presenteras på stadens hemsida. --Himasaram 22:27, 5 August 2007 (UTC)
Sant. I Polen är alla officielal vapen automatiskt PD så en hel del av de element jag använder kommer därifrån eller från finska vapen. /10:36, 6 August 2007 (UTC)

Svenska stadsvapen[edit]

Hej Lokal. Är svenska stadsvapen inte tillåtna på commons? Jag ritade Image:Arjeplog City Arms.svg förra året och nu har filen nyligen blivit raderad med logo som anledning. :( Borde vara av intresse för dig eftersom du ritat ett stort antal själv. --Himasaram 01:38, 4 August 2007 (UTC)

En fri tolkningar av vapnets blasonering är tillåten men inte det officiella vapnet eller en vektorisering av den. Undantaget är de vapen som anses vara för enkla för att vara skyddade av upphovsrätt.
Om jag inte minns fel så var arjeplog vapnet en auto-trace av Arjeplogs officiella vapen. /Lokal_Profil 02:14, 4 August 2007 (UTC)
Jag använde potrace på renhornet från en bild ur en nederländsk bok som var PD vid tillfället. Resten var gjort för hand. Jag hade gärna ritat om renhornet om någon varit vänlig nog att meddela mig att det var ett problem med bilden. --Himasaram 05:44, 4 August 2007 (UTC)
Jo jag la (nu) märket till att du aldrig kontaktades angående att bilden var uppe för radering vilket är lite konstigt. /Lokal_Profil 05:48, 4 August 2007 (UTC)
Gå och lägg dig förresten. Det är alldeles för sent för att vara uppe =P. G'natt /Lokal_Profil 05:50, 4 August 2007 (UTC)
Hehe; jag bor av olika anledningar i Sydkorea. Här är det bara eftermiddag än så länge. Det är nog bara du som behöver sova nu. ;)

Automatisk bildgenerering[edit]

Minns inte hur mycket jag skickade i mejlet, men la iaf upp lite lankar fran min user sida till ett par typer av bildgenerering. Testade aven med excel, kan visa over msn nar du har nat. lov /Marmelad 10:55, 29 August 2007 (UTC)

Jo jag tittade på sidan och bilderna såg bra ut. Våran definition på % skilde sig något vilket gav lite olika färger och så var det ett omval som spökade (hade för mig att jag skrivit det till dig?). Hur som helst så ser det ut att vara precis den sorts generiering som jag efterfrågade. Min enda fundering är att de genererade SVG filerna (dvs. om jag går in på t.ex. [5] högerklickar och väljer visa kod) inte är stand-alone. Dvs. de kräver att php-scriptet tolkar hur klasserna ska färgläggas. Vet inte riktigt hur man kan kringå detta. Som det är nu så är klassen det samma som procenten vilket i en stand-alone SVG fil skulle innebära en tolkning per klass, jag antar att php scriptet däremot helt enkelt kollar innom vilka av gränsvärdena den ligger och tillger den färg därefter. Misstänker att en stand-alone SVG fil kräver att klassen för allla kommuner innom en viss procentgrupering är den samma så att det sedan bara behövs ett färgläggningskommando per klass. Humm... diskusionen lämpar sig nog bäst att forsätta på MSN elelr åtminstonne när jag sitter vid den egna datorn där jag kan exprimentera. Kommer hem den 7:e ifall du har tid nån gång under helgen efter. ..o blad/Lokal_Profil 15:39, 30 August 2007 (UTC)
Laste just igenom ditt svar igen. Missforstod (=fattade inte alls) vid min forsta snabba genomlasning. SVg filterna ar stand-alone. Nar koden val ar skickad till lasaren sa sker ingen med exekvering av php-kod. Klasserna med procenttal anvande jag for att debugga och glomde ta bort. De paverkar inte fargerna. (testa att kopiera koden och spara lokalt). Undrar om excel kanske anda inte ar battre. Mer pa msn. Ar med pa konventionen att skota konversationen helt pa den sida dar den startades, blir ju jobbigt annars. Lagger in en watch pa denna sidan. Mer löv. Marmelad 21:58, 4 September 2007 (UTC)

Blason de Fertöd[edit]

Hi, I notice you deleted this image after sending a message in August. I also notice you are away for a month. You should have thought that you are not the only one that has better things to do than sitting in front of a screen during the summer. Proposing in August photos to be deleted doesn't seem very clever as you know (at least, you should know) that there will probably be no answers. It's like deleting without warning. Try to remember this for next summer and other vacations' times like Yuletide. Thanks. Gato76680

kommunikation[edit]

är i sverige på snabbvisit, men lite wikimeida ska man nog hinna med ändå. tänkte att det kanske är lättare att kommunicera via våra talk pages när det gäller wikisaker. har börjat kolla här rätt ofta under dagen =). löv Marmelad 21:22, 11 September 2007 (UTC)

Ok, fick du mitt mail om Image:Map of unitary states.svg? /Lokal_Profil 23:42, 11 September 2007 (UTC)
japp, håller på och undersöker. svårt att hitta ordentlig dokumentation. det är möjligt att det har att göra med att mer specifika direktiv prioriteras över mer generella (om du stylar en grupp och sen stylar individuella element i gruppen så gäller det senare), vilket i och för sig oftast verkar vettigt. har hittat diverse sätt för dig att gå runt problemet, t.ex.
 .ms- 
 {
    opacity:1; 
    fill:#ff0000;  
 }
dvs specifiera cirkeln direkt. /Marmelad 11:33, 12 September 2007 (UTC)
Jo det var ju sa man gjorde innan. men hela tanken var att man bara skulle behova specificera landet och att cirkeln sedan farglaggs beroende pa om man satter opacity till 1 elelr inte.
Jag forsokte med att ge gruppen och cirkeln och landet samma class (typ ms, land ms, small-country-circle ms) men konstigt nog sa fungerar inte det heller. Visserligen sa har man ju motsagande information i ms och i small-country-circle men det ar ju exakt samma sittuation som i land och ms och det fungerar !...
Jaja jag far testa vidare helt enkelt men all hjalp ar valkommen. /Lokal_Profil 13:23, 12 September 2007 (UTC)
vad är det som fungerar med land och ms? /Marmelad 14:58, 12 September 2007 (UTC)
Om du specificerar ett objekt med calssen class="land ms", och sedan staller in .ms{ fill=red} eller natt sa fargar det det objektet rott (detta ar ju hur t.ex din IKEA karta ar gjord). Men om man gor samma sak med circeln dvs. class="small-country-circle ms" (dvs man ger bade land och cirkel klassen ms) och staller in .ms{ opacity=1 fill=red} sa blir inte cirkeln verken synlig eller fargad. Anda skillnaden jag kan se ar att land&cirkel i det senare fallet ligger i en grupp men detta borde ju inte paverka eftersom de bada har klassen (ms) direkt (snarare an som innan att sjalva gruppen hade det). /Lokal_Profil 15:05, 12 September 2007 (UTC)
Har försökt läsa hur specificity funkar men hittar bara bråkstycken, och de stämmer inte helt. förmodligen delvis för att svg stylingen inte är helt kompatibel med css (vissa kommandon är extra, t.ex. object som g, properties som opacity etc. tror att om man anger klasser på flera ställen (via både g och path så tar path classerna prioritet oavsett andra saker. men att ge object ms klass direkt istallet för via grupp verkar ju vara en ok lösning. det görs ju bara en gång och sen kan man färga som man vill. /Marmelad 16:14, 12 September 2007 (UTC)
Ok, förstår lite mer tror jag. när du specifierar en färg via t.ex. .ms, så påverkar den landet och cirkeln via inheritence. men om de har en egen stil satt via t.ex. klass, så är det den som tar över. det går inte att få ärvda properties att prioriteras framför specifierade. lösningen ovan verkar funka. då tävlar specifierade länder på lika vilkor med borttagna cirklar, och kan prioriteras, antingen genom att skriva dem senare, eller genom att ge dem högre prioritet, t.ex .small-country-circle mot path.ms (path ger en extra poäng på specificity) /Marmelad 15:42, 13 September 2007 (UTC)

Problemet är att om jag skriver följande så färgas verken land eller cirkel blå (rättelse den blir inte blå i firefox (som använder id) men de blir blåa i Mediawiki)
.lu
#lu
{
        opacity:    1;
        fill: #2b3bb6;
}

<g id='lu'>
        <path class='land lu' d='...' id='lu-'/>
        <path class='small-country-circle lu' d='...' id='lu.'/>

dvs, lu tävlar mot small-country-circle och mot land /Lokal_Profil 17:54, 13 September 2007 (UTC)

verkar bra vad jag kan se. såg nåt försök till standardisering av locator kartor etc. (minns inte riktigt var) verkar ju vettigt att t.ex. ha samma färgskalor etc. förresten, kan alla rösta om borttagning av bilder? om så, hur gör man? se Commons:Deletion requests/Image:Carte des prêtres assermentés en France en 1791.svg. /Marmelad 11:19, 14 September 2007 (UTC)
Jodå vem som helst kan "rösta". Tänk bara på att det inte (till skilland från en.wiki) är en omröstning i sig, det är viktigare med argumenten. Har dessutom lagt till min kommentar i debatten. /Lokal_Profil 11:35, 14 September 2007 (UTC)
hur bestäms det att diskussionen är klar då? och om det inte är omröstning, vem avgör? /Marmelad 13:22, 14 September 2007 (UTC)
När diskussionen har börjat slockna så stänger en admin den och kollar igenom argumenten. OM det inte finns någon enkel lösning så brukar de ligga öppet en längre tid eller möjligen stängas med "inconlusive". Om man anser att utgången inte överenstämmer med vart diskussionen höll på att mynna ut kan man ifrågasätta hur den stängdes så tittar anra till den. Huvudanledningen till att det inte är en omröstning är att det alltid finns massa idiotröster i stil med "sluta barnsla er såklart bilden ska finnas kvar", "bilden är snygg behåll den" eller bara "behåll" i en diskussion som försöker avgöra hurvida en bild bryter mot upphovsrätten eller inte. Det är ytterst få nomineringar som handlar om att någon inte tycker om bilden/tycker att den är fel, och sådanna leder nästan aldrig till radering (om det inte är medveten POV) typ att göra en karta över Gibraltar skriva spanien på den och ta bort gränsen till Spanien. /Lokal_Profil 23:20, 14 September 2007 (UTC)

Duplicate[edit]

Hi Lokal Profil, i just noticed you made the exact same SVG images of the states of Mexico as I did, look at this:

So, how are we going to solve this problem? Cause I think we can`t use both images because that wouldn`t be logical, right? (Sorry for my bad English) CrazyPhunk 15:26, 14 September 2007 (UTC)

I think I made mine because you haden't made maps for all of the states (at least I didn't find them). On one hand it's silly to have two almost identical images, on the other it does give the wikipedias a choice of colour. I don't know if there is a "standard" colour which is preferred for locator maps in general but if there is one then that would obviously be the one to go for. /Lokal_Profil 23:23, 14 September 2007 (UTC)

BlankWorld-Map6.svg[edit]

Thank you so much for your improvements to the map. Since I'm still relatively new at SVG, I couldn't get rid of all the superfluous stuff that Inkscape contributes (but I'm not surprised that it does) - I'm quite well versed in CSS, but don't know enough of it to handle cleaning up the map, so unfortunately all future corrections by me will have to be done in Inkscape (and since I essentially created the map, I'll probalby be adding corrections in the future.) Is there a tutorial out there for me to learn how to make the edits you make via a text editor rather than Inkscape, to prevent you having to come in and clean up my edits every time I make one? (This comment was also emailed to you via the "email this user" link, btw.) --Canuckguy 18:25, 16 September 2007 (UTC)

I don't know any good tutorials but I'll sit down (soonish) and write you a brief guide of how I do it. Do you prefer it to you're e-mail or here? /Lokal_Profil 16:17, 17 September 2007 (UTC)
Just a thought: Perhaps a guide somewhere here is better, as other people are probably interested in this as well. /Marmelad 07:14, 18 September 2007 (UTC)
Only problem with that is that I guide would require knowledge to write, I was just intending to share my guesswork and the Edit-in-Inkscape-copypaste-into-textfile-technique, the later one probably being the more usefull for later world map edits. But a guide would probably be good. Commons:Tutorial for Vectorial graphism already exists but I think it mainly deals with Inkscape. /Lokal_Profil 09:42, 18 September 2007 (UTC)
I still think a not so great guide is better than nothing, and it also invites people to improve it./Marmelad 10:56, 18 September 2007 (UTC)
I agree (being the original asker of the question), I'm not the only one making edits of the map, and I encourage anyone to do so, but I'm more or less guaranteed to make future edits.  :) So that would probably be good at least for my purposes.

Tjena[edit]

Tjena Lokal Profil! Jag såg på en sida att du räknas som flickr-viewer, och därför vill jag be dig (som vet lite mer om flickr) att ladda upp lite bilder på musikgruppen Danielson Famile. [6], [7], [8] är de bästa bilderna jag hittade där, och det står att bilderna är public. Tack på förhand! //moralist 20:35, 18 September 2007 (UTC)

Hej. Vad gälelr Flicker bilder så är det inte om de är public eller inte som är viktigt. En liten bit över det (första saken under rubriken "Adittional Information") står licensen som bilden är under. De första två bilderna du länkade till är båda "© All rights reserved", den tredje är cc-by-nc-sa-2.o vilket är en icke-kommersiell licens. För att söka på bilder på Flickr som är fria så får du gå in på avancerad sökning och sedan klicka för "Only search within Creative Commons-licensed photos" samt de två rutorna undertill. /Lokal_Profil 21:15, 18 September 2007 (UTC)
Okej! Men för att hålla koll på foton som byter licens på flickr, måste man väl ha en speciell mall på commons, för att botarna (och användarna) ska kunna känna igen dem? //moralist 15:25, 19 September 2007 (UTC)
Om du använder "Upload work from Flickr" altenativet när du laddar upp en bild, så läggs automatiskt mallen {{flickrreview}} till bildsidan. När den väl ligger där så går en bot igenom bilderna och dubbelkollar att licensen stämmer (och om botten misslyckas så går Flickr reviewers som jag in och kollar). Tanken med detta är att ifall licensen skulle förändras så finns det åtminstonne mer än en person som kan intyga att bilden en gång varit fri. /Lokal_Profil 14:31, 20 September 2007 (UTC)
Oj! Väldigt smidigt (fick lite hjälp på IRC igår, så har laddat upp ett par bilder). Nu kommer jag ladda upp en massa bilder... Tack för hjälpen! //moralist 15:30, 20 September 2007 (UTC)

kategorier[edit]

haj. hur funkar det egentligen med kategorier? kan vem som helst lagga till? det jag sett verkar mest vara en salig rora... /Marmelad 10:00, 22 September 2007 (UTC)

Beror på hur du menar. Ja vem som helst kan skapa en kategori eller flytta en kategori men om det är en väldigt bred kategori så kan det ibland vara värt att diskutera saken innan. Vad gäller röra är jag inte säker på att jag håller med. Strukturen är i grunden rätt sund men självklart ju längre ut på trädet man kommer ju fler visna grenar finns det. Tänkte du på någon specifik kategori? /Lokal_Profil 11:17, 22 September 2007 (UTC)

svg2raster[edit]

Hittade den har: http://www.fileformat.info/convert/image/svg2raster.htm. Mycket pratisk for att testa.

Annars finns programmet "rsvg-view" som borde vara det mest nyttiga. Problemet är att det är designat för linux. /Lokal_Profil 00:08, 24 September 2007 (UTC)

ersatta eller skapa ny?[edit]

vad ar brukligt att gora nar man forandrar/forbattrar egna/andras bilder? har 2 konkreta exempel:

1: Om du jamfor de tva versionerna av Image:Human-styracosaurus size comparison.svg. Laddade forst upp den ena, men hittade senare en battre bild att traca. de tva versionerna ar ju ratt olika, men da den andra ar battre och bada var mina valde jag att ersatta, istallet for att gora en ny. hm. ett annat problem ar att bilden nu inte ar en svg version av png filen den skulle ersatta. hm...

2: Image:Laundry symbol dry cold.svg ar en raster bild sparad i svg format. har gjort en svg version, ar det ok att bara ersatta, da det inte finns nan anledning att anvanda den gamla. kan ju inte, som annars, andra filandelsen till svg och haka pa en supersededSVG?

blad /Marmelad 12:54, 29 September 2007 (UTC)

Vad gäller nummer två så skulle jag bara ladda upp den nya versionen över den gammla och skriva in i kommentarfältet "proper svg without included raster image". Alternativt ladda upp en ny fil under ett nytt namn och märk den gamla med {{Superseded}} och {{badSVG}}, på så sätt kan du skapa en bild med dig själv som upphovsmann och egen licens. Problemet är väll egentligen att dessa bilder är trademarked av Gintex. Kan faktiskt vara värt att ta upp detta på Vilalge Pump då det är diskutabelt om bilderna uppnår verkshöjd. Ifall du ändå bestämmer dig för att ge dig på att ladda upp nya så finns många riktiga svg versioner på de:Textilpflegesymbol (och här) och det finns många dåliga att ersätta på Category:Laundry symbol.
Vad gäller nummer 1 så om det är din bild så är det oftast ok att ersätta med den nya. Men det kan vaa värt att titta var den används först och se ifall storlek, bildkomentar etc. måste ändras där. Eftersom ersatta png bilder inte längre raderas så är det strunt samma om den och svg:n är identiska. Får du bara din bild "approved (på en.wikis dinoprojekt") så kan du utan problem märka pngn med superseded och ersätta användningen av den med din nya svg bild. Ifall någon skulle motsätta sig det så plockar de bort mallen och då kan du alltid lägga dit {{vva}} istället. Jag brukar använda vva snarare än superseded när min bild är kraftigt annorlunda.
Hoppas att råden är till nytta/Lokal_Profil 15:23, 29 September 2007 (UTC)
tackar. upptackte att de var upphovsrattsskyddade, men visste inte tillrackligt / pallade inte borja braka. /Marmelad 17:38, 29 September 2007 (UTC)
De är inte nödvändigtvis upphovsrättsskyddade, de är "tradmarked" (typ logo registrerad). En triangel eller en fyrkant med en cirkel och en prick i är inte tillräckligt originella för att uppnå verkshöjd alltså går de inte att upphovsrättsskydda. Däremot kan man fortfarande registrera dem som logotyper. Så problemet är enbart vad gäller avgörandet ifall en specifik bidl är tillräckligt avancerad för att uppnå verkshöjd dvs triangeln och torktummlaren gör det nog inte medans strykjärnet kanske gör det. Så din torktummlare kan nog laddas upp utan problem. /Lokal_Profil 13:15, 30 September 2007 (UTC)

vapen[edit]

har verkar du ju vara lite av en expert. sa: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Rixensart har en bild pa ett vapen, Image:Coat of armes Rixensart.JPG som skiljer sig fran Image:CommunesBelgique-Rixensart.svg som jag just fixat till. lite googlande hittade the International Civic Heraldry site (ICHs) som liksom svg filen saknar kedjor och krona. Kanner du till ICHs? ar det en site att lita pa?

blad /Marmelad 20:30, 29 September 2007 (UTC)

ICH är generelt en sajt att lite på. Det viktiga i det här fallet är att kedjan och kronan inte ingår i skölden utan snarare är externa ornament. Alltså är en version utan dem också korrekt. Dessutom har jag raderingsmärkt Image:Coat of armes Rixensart.JPG som copyvio. Bra att du ger dig på hans sköldar med grå bakgrund. Ytterligare några finns på Category:Coats of arms of Belgium. Lägg gärna in Category:Coats of arms of Belgium to be classified på som inte är sorterade efter vad de föreställer./Lokal_Profil 13:32, 30 September 2007 (UTC)
Och även Category:SVG coats of arms - Belgium ifall den inte finns. /Lokal_Profil 13:35, 30 September 2007 (UTC)
OCh så har han ju lagt upp vissa dubletter som jag märkte när vi båda laddade upp din bild =) /Lokal_Profil 13:37, 30 September 2007 (UTC)
Det verkar som om User:SVGbot/Results/Page 2 är ett bättre ställe att hitta alla dessa vapen på. /Lokal_Profil 13:42, 30 September 2007 (UTC)
Jo, det var via den sidan jag hittade dem. /Marmelad 14:21, 30 September 2007 (UTC)

vet du?[edit]

Vad ar reglerna vad i situationer dar det finns fria daliga versioner av ett verk, och ofria battre. far man t.ex. titta vilka farger som anvands i den battre versionen och anpassa den fria, eller ar det upphovsrattsbrott? hur ar det med form/storlek pa detaljer? blad /Marmelad 08:25, 3 October 2007 (UTC)

Image:Malmö emblem.png ar ju ratt ful. det finns ju officiella versioner pa malmos hemsida, malmo stad grafisk manual, sid. 4, men jag tvivlar pa att den ar fri. Sa, far man lov att titta pa den senare och och sen manuellt forbattra den foregaende? var gar granserna?/Marmelad 10:34, 3 October 2007 (UTC)
Aha. Den vasentliga skillanaden ar att Commons bilden kommer fran en PD-Old kalla medans bilden i den grafiska profilen mycket ricktigt ar skyddad. Du kan forbattra den (men ladda da garna upp den under ett annat filnamn) sa lange du grundar forbattringen pa PD-bilden och blasoneringen snarare an Malmos grafiska profil. Med andra ord kan du omvandla den till en SVG bild och mojligen andra fargtonerna nagot men du brode inte forsoka gora gripen bistrare eller farga varannan fjader rod. Vet inte hur sakert det ar med att anvanda exakt samma farger. Hoppas det hjalper/Lokal_Profil 10:52, 3 October 2007 (UTC)
Du far farga varannan fjader silver och varannan rod men du bor papeka att du baserar bilden pa ar 1437 blasoneringen "Et røt grips howith meth rødh hals oc rødhe øren oc owen pa howithet een forgult krone vti et hwit feld, oc vpa hielmen sammelethis eet røt grips howith meth een forgylt krone meth een busk strudzfiedhre myt aa kronen, hwidhe oc rödh." /Lokal_Profil 10:55, 3 October 2007 (UTC)

Tills dess ska jag fa be att gora skamlos reklam for Veckans tavling pa sv.wiki. Jag menar du kan vall knappast motsta chansen att vinna en bild pa en liten gron tygbit... /Lokal_Profil 11:14, 3 October 2007 (UTC)
sa om jag forstar det ratt sa galler det att hitta byggnader eller produkter med loggorna pa och ta foton av dem istallet?
Visst om du hittar en byggnad med loggan på så kan du ta foto på den. Men du får inte lov att beskära bilden så att logon blir "main subject" i bilden. Dvs. du kan inte skära ner bilden så mycket att du kan använda den för att illustrera logon. /Lokal_Profil 18:26, 3 October 2007 (UTC)

alosizes[edit]

Hej. Du flyttade rutorna med farger ut ur Image:Alosizes.svg, men du lat texten vara kvar i bilden? /Marmelad 18:44, 5 October 2007 (UTC)

Tänkte att du får lov att flytta ut texten själv ifall du känner för det. Men genom att ha färgrutorna och texten utanför så blir det enklare för wikipedier att copypaste:a det som beskrivning. /Lokal_Profil 18:46, 5 October 2007 (UTC)

terminologi[edit]

Hejsan. Det gar ju framat med vepnen. Vet du nattt bra stalle dar heraldikterminologin forklaras pa ett bra satt. Skulle just ge mig pa "I fält av silver en av vågskuror bildad dubbel blå sparre, sänkt och störtad, däröver en röd gumse i hällristningsmanér.", och antar att i stort satt alla orden har speciell beydelse. Har ju gissat mig till vad vagskuror ar, och hallristningsmaner ar ju ratt sjalvforklarande. Men sparre, sankt och stortad later som de har speciell innebord. Blad /Marmelad 11:09, 13 October 2007 (UTC)

Gumse ar ett far, For vanliga haroldsbilder ar sv:Häroldsbild ratt bra dar kan du se att sparre ar en (sadan har), att den ar stortad betyder att den ar uppochner vand. Att den ar sanktbetyder att den inte skar igenom mitten utan borjar langre ner. sv.wiki ar ok for grundtermer men inte jattebra. Om det ar mer avancerade fragor sa kan man fraga pa Heraldica - Forum för nordiska heraldiker.
Har sett vissaav bilderna och gillar speciellt Sandvikens och Ockelbos vapen. En liten sak bara ar att man ofta sbor forsoka forstora objecten sa att de fyller upp mer av skolden. Sa i exempelvis ockelbos vapen sa skulle cirklarna vara lite storre och mer utspridda och hammaren borde stracka sig fran ungefar andra granen uppifran till toppen av andra nerifran. Kommer nog att peta lite pa Söderhamns och Nordanstigs vapen nar jag far tillbaka min dator. Andra i natet lite samt fixa till sa att bate blir ratt (har ju namnt att Nordisk familjebok fick en del saker om bakfoten).

Category heraldic images[edit]

Hi - I was browsing through the "Wanted Categories", and there is one that is called "Category:Heraldic images" with a large number of images. I am not sure where to fit them into the heraldry category. Would they be under "Heraldic figures", or is there a better place? Asking you as you seem to have experience in the field. Thanks, Deadstar (msg) 13:54, 23 October 2007 (UTC)

Hi I honestly do not know. The whole Heraldic figures category is a mess in itself. All the subcategorise of it are limited to coats of arms with X in them but the main category Heraldic figures is filled wth all kinds of images that might relate to heraldry. For the batch of images in Heraldic images I'm pretty sure most/all of them are also in Heraldic figures so removing Heraldic images from them and thus depopulating the uncreated category shouldn't be a problem. Comming up with a sensible way of structuring Heraldic figures with sensible category names is on the other hand a huge task. /Lokal_Profil 23:04, 23 October 2007 (UTC)
OK - Thanks for that. I'll not create the category. Do you know if there's a fast way of just "removing" the cat? (I asked Siebrand about this too, but haven't heard yet - perhaps you know?). Deadstar (msg) 10:26, 24 October 2007 (UTC)
The only thing which needs to be done is to remove the category tag from the images. One could possibly set a bot to do it but then on the other hand it's "only" 44 images. /Lokal_Profil 12:19, 24 October 2007 (UTC)

Såg också att Uppsala vapen.svg skulle behöva en krona på lejonet. Är (som jag nämnde på din talk page) lite fundersam på hur fri figuren i Södertälje vapen.svg är. Det finns även en issue med skinfärgen (o hårfärgen) men det är ju irrelevant ifal originalbilden inte är fri. /Lokal_Profil 16:44, 4 November 2007 (UTC)

Emellertid förstår jag inte riktigt varför du tar upp exemplet med botkyrka? För mig förefallar det visserligen att den vapenbild som är uppladdad som Södertälje vapen (som skall innehålla S:ta Ragnhild) egentligen föreställer en man (S:t Botvid?). I så fall är det kanske inte så lyckat. Vad det de du menade med din referens till Botkyrkas vapen? MVH Laserpekare 17:30, 4 November 2007 (UTC)

Stockholm stift vapen pre 1962[edit]

Vilken/vilka källor har du för att Stockholms stift inom Svenska kyrkan skulle ha använt detta vapen? B****n 23:11, 2 December 2007 (UTC)

Kallan ar Svenska Heraldiska Föreningens vapendatabas. At svardet ar i silver namns inte dar sa det hittade jag nog nagon annan stans. Vart att notera ar att blasoneringen for detta vapen ar identiskt med det som anvands idag av Stockholms katolska stift./Lokal_Profil 10:18, 3 December 2007 (UTC)
Humm, nu blir jag konfunderad. Kan handa att jag fatt det hela om bakfoten och att det alltid bara har varit katolska stiftets vapen. Har du sjalv nagon insikt i fragan eftersom du reagerade pa bilden. /Lokal_Profil 10:29, 3 December 2007 (UTC)
Det finns en artikel av Bengt Olof Kälde i Heraldisk Tidsskrift nr 35, 1977: "Svenska kyrkans heraldik". Han gör där en historisk genomgång av vapnen för samtliga stift inom Svenska kyrkan (inklusive stiften inom nuvarande finska evangelisk-lutherska kyrkan). Angående vapen för Stockholms stift inom Svenska kyrkan nämns inget annat än det vapen som antogs 1962. Jag kan alltså inte se annat än att det vapen som är aktuellt här endast har använts av det katolska stiftet. B****n 11:03, 3 December 2007 (UTC)

Image:Coat of arms of Helsingborg, Sweden new.png[edit]

Hej!

Jag ser att du har anmält denna bild för radering. Nu är inte jag någon större expert på när något räknas som ett plagiat eller när något räknas som en egen tolkning. Jag har ju använt kommunvapnet som förlaga för att skapa bilden, men kommunvapnet är baserat på ett sigill från 1468. Jag har en bild på sigillet i en bok hemma, men min scanner har gått till de sälla jaktmarkerna och jag kan därför inte visa dig hur detta sigill ser ut. En bättre version av hur kommunvapnet ser ut mer i detalj finns här, där man kan zooma in för att få en bra storlek. Om man ska gå efter sigillet, vilket vore det mest korrekta, lämnas inte mycket kvar till tolkningar. Det skulle vara muren och murkronans utformning i så fall (murkronan kanske kunde tas bort?). Jag jobbar just nu på en ny version, men har som sagt inte kunnat scanna in sigillet än. -- Jsdo1980 22:55, 11 December 2007 (UTC)

Eftersom jag inte har sett sigillet sa har jag svart att utala mig. Men generellt sett sa maste bilden vara en fri tolkning av blasoneringen for att vara fri. Om det nu visar sig att sigillet ser i stort sett identiskt ut med dagens vapen sa oppnar det ju daremot mojligheter till att tolka det fria sigillet snarare and det upphovsrattsskyddade vapnet. /Lokal_Profil 23:25, 11 December 2007 (UTC)
Hej igen. Jag har nu gjort en ny version av vapnet och laddat upp den på Image:Coat of arms of Helsingborg, Sweden.png, jag ska bara fixa så att bakgrunden blir transparent. Jag har dessutom hittat en bild på sigillet som du kan se här. Den nya bilden är nu till största delen baserad på sigillet, dock är den "uträtad" då sigillet anpassades till sin runda form. Har gjort så att antalet fönster i de olika byggnaderna samt tornhuvens indelning är densamma som på sigillet, vilket skiljer sig från kommunens version. Dessutom har jag gjort mittentornet större, eftersom detta ska föreställa Kärnan och jag tyckte det borde vara mer framträdande. Korsen på de två tornen och de runda gluggarna nederst är nu mer baserade på sigillet. Skölden har jag hämtat från Image:Coa_(blank).png. MVH Jsdo1980 03:31, 3 January 2008 (UTC)
Hej. Bilden ser jättebra ut och det är precis den typen av fria tolkningar som vi behöver. Jag har putsat till informationen på bildsidan för att ge alla källorna etc. Det ända som jag kanske skulle vilja är att du ändrar den vita bakgrundsfärgen i vapnet (dvs. silver) till den gråa färgen i exempelvis Nynäshamn vapen.svg. Detta skulle i så fall vara för att skapa mer enhetlighet mellan de olika vapnen. Men eftersom vit också är en korrekt färg för heraldisk silver lämnar jag det upp till dig. Åter igen väldigt imponerad av den nya bilden. /Lokal_Profil 13:33, 3 January 2008 (UTC)

Thasos marble quarry[edit]

Hello, where exactly is the location? How many miles south of Makryamos? Who is the the owner of this quarry? -- Gerdl 15:19, 13 December 2007 (UTC)

Do you mean Image:Marble Quarry, Thasos.jpg? I have no clue who owns the quarry but it looked desserted and I think I remember something about it having been closed down due to instability and landslides. It's about a year and a half ago since i took the photo so I'm not 100% but I think the quarry lies on the coast between panagia and makriamos. But it was some time ago... why are you wondering? /Lokal_Profil 23:33, 13 December 2007 (UTC)

The Blank maps that you made were very nice. I don't know that much about using Inkscape, but it was easy with your maps and the results looked pretty good. I just wanted to thank you for the work you put into them and their availability here. -- carol 10:58, 27 December 2007 (UTC)

Mars/Venus symbols in heraldry[edit]

Hej, I noticed that when you had created these categories, you still had but put an explanation that these refer actually to iron/copper symbols in heraldry - in Swedish only, though. I am just wondering - as these seem to be only an element in Nordic heraldry - if those categories should be renamed to what you have originally stated and what they really are, i.e. Iron and Copper symbols in heraldry. I have already seen confusion of an South-European user, who thought these refer to astrology. Please let me know, if you agreed about using seecat-template and creating new categories. --Care 09:26, 13 January 2008 (UTC)

Changing to "iron symbols in heraldry" etc. is ok by me if these symbols are only used (in heraldry) in nordic countries. =) /Lokal_Profil 12:17, 13 January 2008 (UTC)
Saw that you added seecat template. Added the categories to Commons delinker which should do the trik. /Lokal_Profil 00:17, 15 January 2008 (UTC)
Sorry, didn't notice that until I already had done the change manually. Seecat was added a little bit earlier merely to find out if somebody had anything against of the change. Thanks for your help, though. --Care 09:06, 27 January 2008 (UTC)

I det har fallet (dar upladaren inte havdar att han ar upphovsman) ar det enklare. Eftersom en extern upphovsman och licens har angivits men det inte finns nagon länk (eller liknande) till att bilden slappts under den licensen kan man marka den med "no permission". Detta gor du antignen med lanken i verktygsladan (om du har en, kanske ar ett skript jag lagt in) eller genom att lagga {{subst:npd}} pa sidan. I det har fallet finns det dock en chans att bilden faller under {{PD-ineligible}} men jag det beror pa vem som avgor. /Lokal_Profil 18:39, 13 January 2008 (UTC)

Maps and the people who make them[edit]

There was a time in that blur of late December 2007 in which I considered and even started to leave a well deserved compliment on the beauty of your maps. I started to learn how to use Inkscape with them; I would never be able to suitably express my appreciation of them. Even now, when I look at Image:Map of Russian subjects by type, 2008-03-01.svg -- somethings have evolved nicely since those pink and red png.... -- carol 12:30, 29 January 2008 (UTC)

Thanks for those words, it's always fun when someone appreciates ones work =). BTW you mentioned using USDA Plant Zones maps to create range maps for flora within the US. Don't know if you've found Image:USA Counties.svg already but I'm guessing that one could be usefull for combining USDA information on a county level over several states. /Lokal_Profil 00:22, 30 January 2008 (UTC)

Image:Presidential Flag of the Republic of Croatia.jpg[edit]

Is this ok? -- Rainman 22:49, 6 February 2008 (UTC)

Can I remove the tag of unsourced materials. -- Rainman 21:36, 7 February 2008 (UTC)
Hi. You would still need a link to where the copyright owner has released the image under GFDL. /Lokal_Profil 22:34, 7 February 2008 (UTC)
The Croatian Govenrment doesn't own the copyright - look at the explanation. This is a symbol of Croatia as are CoA and Flag of Croatia. They are not owned by anybody. In certain states and countries the Presidential Flag is changed from one person in office of the president to another person which adds something on the Flag of ones own. This is not the case in Croatia. The Presidential Flag of Croatia has been established in 1990-12-21 and is not like some countries that have flags of kings and princes that are their personal standards which are their possesion and their ownership. In Croatia - a Republic - this is common ownership - commonality. -- Rainman 00:20, 8 February 2008 (UTC)
Done. Template:PD-CroatiaGov for currently official files and Template:PD-Croatia for official files of the past. There is apparently a difference to which pointed out Avala when talking about the Flag of Serbia, he belives that only currently official files deserve the Gov tag and other images should be considered for a broader category with the name of the State/Country/Entity. Please check the file and remove bad license tag. -- Rainman 04:01, 8 February 2008 (UTC)

re. Commons:Deletion requests/Image:Flag of Nicaragua.svg[edit]

Sorry...I'm not quite sure what you want here. If you want deletion, it seems consensus was against you. If you want one deleted as a duplicate, they're very different. Could you clarify otherwise? giggy (:O) 09:10, 12 February 2008 (UTC)

No, it shouldn't be deleted IMO. One is a flag, one isn't. You can't illustrated a WP article about a flag using a coat of arms. giggy (:O) 07:51, 13 February 2008 (UTC)
OK, I really think I must be missing something. The consensus from that DR seems to say that the flag/CoA are from a free source we can use, while you're saying the reverse. I closed accordingly. If this is what's going on, it's probably best to do as Rocket000 suggested and go to Commons talk:Licensing.

Ohederligt[edit]

Det är ohederligt att tillskriva Försvarsmakten den här typen av falsifikation. Radera den snarast! Det får ju inte se ut hur som helst - och om Wikipedia inte har rätt myndighetsvapen till förfogande så man nog så vackert fråga om det inte möjligtvis skulle gå att länka till en bild på rätt myndihgets webbplats.

Nu ser det bara riktigt dåligt ut och är säkerligen en källa till irritation och småflin. Ett hån mot Wikipedia.

Kyrkor från STF1923[edit]

Funderar på om inte Image:Stapeln vid Arbr kyrka, STF1923.jpg m.fl bilder av samma fotograf skulle kunna gå under PD-Sweden istället för PD-Old, och i så fall inte behöva raderas. Vad tror du om det? Taxelson 18:32, 23 February 2008 (UTC)

Problemet med PD-Sweden är i så fall att bilden inte får kvalificera som fotografiskt verk utan istället klassas som fotografisk bild för att vara fri. Och då blir det hela en debatt om vilka bilder som är vad. Själv anser jag inte att kyrkbilderna är fotografiska bilder men jag håller mede om att det är en knasig situation där STFs bilder klassas som fria tills dess att vi klurat ut vem fotografen är då de plötligt blir ofria. Det idealiska vore väll egentligen att kontakta STF (eller nån i deras arkiv) och kolla upp fotografer samt dödsdatum. /Lokal_Profil 21:34, 23 February 2008 (UTC)
Det där med "fotografiskt verk" och "fotografisk bild": Jag kan inte de juridiska definitionerna (de känns inte helt glasklara, men jag kan ha fel), men att exempelvis ett porträttfoto är ett verk är väl helt klart, ett foto av en växt eller kanske en kyrkointeriör i vissa fall kräver att man ordnar med lämpligt ljus, kanske flyttar undan saker (arrangerar), också är "verk" håller jag med om. Men korten på klockstaplarna i befintligt dagsljus? Den största arbetsinsatsen torde ha varit att ta sig till platsen och ställa upp kameran. Kameravinklar och liknande på den typen av objekt är ofta ganska givna - det finns ett fåtal möjliga alternativ. Vem som helst med en hygglig kamera och någon kunskap om fotografering hade kunna ta dem. Jag menar därför att det för dessa utomhusbilder bör gå att argumentera för att de är "bilder" snarare än "verk". Men detta är kanske något som i så fall borde diskuteras på mer allmän plats, Bybrunnen t.ex (snarae än på bildernas diskussionssidor?), eller vad tror du? Taxelson 14:18, 24 February 2008 (UTC)
Jo bybrunnen är nog en bättre plats även om jag misstänker att det finns lika många tolkningar av verk/bild osm det finns användare i diskussionen. /Lokal_Profil 14:50, 24 February 2008 (UTC)

Template:PD-FOTW[edit]

I would greatly appreciate if you would review this template, I have made it, but not sure if it is done properly. All the apropriate links are included but still it would be great to hear from a peer and receive a review. Also any upgrade would be heaven. -- Rainman 01:50, 1 March 2008 (UTC)

Maybe it should be even Image:Orange_copyright.svg thus the name of the template would change and would be simply FOTW.

Only one picture so far has been taged with this template, and the category has not been linked to Category:Public domain it shouldn't not link to that category but some copyright category which I cannot find. -- Rainman 02:02, 1 March 2008 (UTC)

The license states the image cannot be used for commercial use nor can be altered. That is forbidden according to Commons policy, thus I deleted the template. User:Zscout370 (Return fire) 08:21, 1 March 2008 (UTC)
As Zscout pointed out, FOTW iamges are not free. /Lokal_Profil 15:49, 1 March 2008 (UTC)
Has the template indicated that the use is free - no it has not. We have pictures in that Category:Custom license tags that also prevent commercial use or alteration. We have even banknotes and coins. Why not this template, FOTW Disclaimer and Copyright policy allows that. It is only the matter of wording. Why has Zscout370 not left you to see how the template has been very carefull in selection of words, in selection of the category and other appropriate symbols. I think that this is the case of conflicting interests. I have not saved my work on the template because not expected to meet such opposition. Please return the template to let the discussion to show what and why on any conflicting issue. -- Rainman 21:12, 1 March 2008 (UTC)
All media available on Commons must be free as defined by http://freedomdefined.org/Definition . no matter how carefully worded the template might have been the end result would still be that the images are not free enough to be useable on Commons. If you can show me the other templates in Category:Custom license tags which prevent commercial use or alteration I'll take a look at them as well. /Lokal_Profil 21:19, 1 March 2008 (UTC)

FOTW has complained in the past about their images being used on here, so that is why I got to this very quickly. As for the other templates, I will also look. We been in the process of finding and removing these templates for years now. User:Zscout370 (Return fire) 23:15, 1 March 2008 (UTC)

Request for maps (bilateral relations)[edit]

Since you offered to help with maps, I figured I would point out where a few are needed. Don't feel the need to do them all right away. We need a map for:

  • Canada-Israel
  • Canada-Mexico
  • Canada-Saudi Arabia
  • Canada-Ukraine
  • Canada-UK
  • Canada-Venezuela
  • Ecuador-Venezuela
  • Iran-Venezuela
  • Israel-Venezuela

That should keep you busy for a while. On a side note, if you could tell me how, I could help do some myself. Kevlar67 22:15, 7 March 2008 (UTC)

I take it that the first name should be in green and the second in orange?
If you want to try fixing it yourself then all you need is a texteditor which can handle large textfiles (without adding junk code) e.g. Word Pad and the ISO 3166-1 alpha-2-code of the countries. If you then save Image:Germany Japan Locator.svg (need to save the actual file not the png thumbnail) and open it in your text editor you should se a two lines which say
  .jp { fill: #e3801c; }      /* Japan */
  .de { fill: #3c9d3c; }      /* Germany */
if you replace then replace "jp" by the isocode of the country you want in orange, and "de" by the iso of the country you want in green.
So far I've only done Canada-UK since this one has an extra part due to UK (in the widest sense) containing several different iso codes (e.g. falkland islands etc.). If you have any troubles just give me a shout. /Lokal_Profil 02:04, 8 March 2008 (UTC)
or we could set up a script to do it automatically... let me know if you're interested. /Marmelad 16:23, 9 March 2008 (UTC)
the ones listed above are now done. /Marmelad 12:35, 18 May 2008 (UTC)
starting to seem a bit silly to have all these maps as huge svg files, since they only need to show countries on a thumbnail of the worls. might start making them in png format instead. any thoughts? /Marmelad 17:15, 18 May 2008 (UTC)
Not sure size is a problem, the only thing to get displayed is a thumbnail anyway. This way there is more flexibility for downstream usage. But being pro SVG I'm biased =) /Lokal_Profil 18:46, 18 May 2008 (UTC)
im fairly pro svg myself. perhaps the main issue favouring png in this case is that the template already contains a link to (at the moment non-existent) png files, so all that's needed is an upload. for svg, each page calling the template must be edited to tell it to look for an svg instead. any thoughts on automating this as well might convince me to use svg instead.. =) /Marmelad 14:52, 20 May 2008 (UTC)
Either you enter the image name using the "map=" parameter or (if the image name is correct up to the file extension) you just set the parmaeter "filetype=svg". In general any templates which predefine the names of the images in such a way as this is kust doomed to get broken though. /Lokal_Profil 15:02, 20 May 2008 (UTC)
you misunderstand. i know how to get the template to take svgs. what i don't want to do is to edit each page to add filetype=svg. this is what i would like to automate. or bypass by uploading a png. /Marmelad 15:12, 20 May 2008 (UTC)
Not apart from changing the template to have svg as default, might be worth it if you are converting all of the existing maps (~650 650 pages, many don't have images). Alternatively you can ask someone with a bot account on en.wiki to update a specific set of pages. BTW created Category:Bilateral maps for these maps. /Lokal_Profil 15:22, 20 May 2008 (UTC)
where did you get the number 650? been looking for a list of ones missing. have a script that makes them, and puts circles on the ones with small countries. (might write one to decide if a country is small, at the moment the decision is manual) /Marmelad 15:30, 20 May 2008 (UTC)
That's why I crossed out 650, because that's the number of pages using the template, but some have maps and some don't. /Lokal_Profil 15:34, 20 May 2008 (UTC)
Ah. been trying to get a list of the ones missing maps (hence my question about red links). any ideas? /Marmelad 15:38, 20 May 2008 (UTC)
No. Not sure how that would be done since the image page would be "dead" even if the image exists on Commons. But there might be a way, as I said someone on one of the village pumps might be able to sort it. Alternatively you could maybe create a list of all articles using the template and then remove the few which corresponf to currently existing svgs. The problem there is the use of Franco instead of France etc. /Lokal_Profil 15:49, 20 May 2008 (UTC)

(removed indentation, was getting silly) ok, think i've found a way to make a list of all linked, but non-existing maps. (for reference, i took the list of all articles using the template, used the wiki export function to get an xml file with all those articles and parsed it for links to the maps. then i made a new wikipage with links to all the images and tada! the non-existent ones can be read of in beautiful red (the other ones show up as actual images.) so. next problem is how to edit all these articles to link to svg images. maybe avb? i know i need permission to use it, but can i use it without editing even if i don't have permission? (to get a feel for what it can and can't do.) lov /Marmelad 15:49, 21 May 2008 (UTC)

No. AWB will refuse to run at all on en.wiki unless you get a permission to run it. Same thing here on Commons. On sv.wiki you can run it without any problems though if you want to get a hang of it. In order to not have to manually save every page you will need to get a bot-flag though otherwise AWB won't allow you to use the auto-save function. /Lokal_Profil 16:53, 21 May 2008 (UTC)
is there anywhere to make requests like this to users with bot accounts? /Marmelad 17:01, 21 May 2008 (UTC)
en:Wikipedia:Bot requests ./Lokal_Profil 17:20, 21 May 2008 (UTC)
been trying to think of a solution to this conundrum. the most efficient solution would probably be to make all new svg's and change the template. i suspect this might piss some people off so maybe the easiest way forward is to just make a load of png that will respond to links already in place, not change anything in the articles and let that be that. for something like this, downstream flexibility is probably best achieved by going back to either the blank svg and/or by regenerating the whole lot if needed. /Marmelad 20:17, 21 May 2008 (UTC)
Since you currently have a list of all images. How many actually exist? i.e. how many pngs have already been created? /Lokal_Profil 23:20, 21 May 2008 (UTC)
the vast majority. out of 511 templates with not extra options (so linking to the standard png file), only 74 are missing. (though some of the current pngs are a bit ugly. a lot of them are zoomed in though, for eg two european countries which is probably a good idea.) /Marmelad 09:35, 22 May 2008 (UTC)
Oh, I expected the majority not to exist already... I'd still recommend svg (hopefully replacing all of the png's after a while) but since it's your workload I'll leave it to you to decide. /Lokal_Profil 23:54, 22 May 2008 (UTC)
all the missing ones are now there (as svg, take ages to upload.. =) edited the articles manually. on ones with two small countries near each other i decided to zoom in, not sure if i like that though, or if all maps looking the same is better... see eg Image:Ghana Côte d'Ivoire Locator.svg /Marmelad 16:44, 24 May 2008 (UTC)
I was thinking about the same thing. I'f you add a small map of the whole world with the zoom highlighted it might make things better, i.e. like Image:Albania Turkey Locator.png and Image:Mapa Cor-de-Rosa.svg. You can use a (shrunk) clone of the world map for the small map so it shouldn't add on much code. It is an added hassle however and as far as uniformity goes I'm not sure which is best. Thinking of a map of say lichtenstein and luxembourg, or israel and palestine a world map would look quite rediculous though. /Lokal_Profil 16:08, 26 May 2008 (UTC)

Image:BoNM - Lebanon3.png etc. is derived from Image:Lebanon coa.png which has been deemed to be unfree since the situation with Vector-images.com got solved. and no I'm neither newbie or admin. /Lokal_Profil 01:35, 24 March 2008 (UTC)
Sorry, that sems to be wrong. PNGs are no vector grafics. So in my opinion Image:Lebanon coa.png is a valid image with valid licence, what you're doing is vandalism. Stop. --213.155.231.26 01:37, 24 March 2008 (UTC)
Öh... have you got any clue what you're talking about? Read Commons:Deletion requests/Template:Vector-Images.com (2nd request). It does not have anything to do with the image being an svg just that the image comes from the company Vector-Images.com, which is clearly the case for Image:Lebanon coa.png./Lokal_Profil 01:40, 24 March 2008 (UTC)

ISL COAs[edit]

Aren't Icelandic coats of arms PD?

--WarX 14:17, 27 March 2008 (UTC)

I haven't found any law suggesting that they are. CoA being PD is limited to a few countries (Germany, Finland, Poland, Hungary, Estonia, Russia etc.) in most other countries they are copyrighted as original artwork. The blasoning is most likely PD though so indeoendent interpretations of the blasoning (i.e. not of the official illustration of the coat of arms) could be made free. /Lokal_Profil 16:23, 27 March 2008 (UTC)

Zimbabwe bird[edit]

How is it a copyright violation? I created the image myself and the licence says so. Mangwanani 16:35, 27 March 2008 (UTC)

(unless I'm missremembering) It was a direct derivative of Image:Zimbabwe Bird.gif which was created by Vector-Images.com. Since Vector-Images.com's images have been found to be unfree then so (by extension) are all derivative works based on their images. /Lokal_Profil 16:45, 27 March 2008 (UTC)
There is only one way to draw a Zimbabwe Bird and that was the way I did so in Inkscape. There is no copyright to the design as the creaters of the stone carvings died over 500 years ago. Mangwanani 17:37, 27 March 2008 (UTC)
Also, I am unable to find a Zimbabwe bird on the aforementioned website. Mangwanani 17:38, 27 March 2008 (UTC)
Sorry that was my misstake. Image:Zimbabwe Bird.gif comes from FOTW which is another unfree website. Your image Zimbabwe Bird.svg is a direct derivative of the image used in the official flag (e.g. Zim-flag-detail.jpg) which, unless specifically stated otherwise, is copyrighted. Thus by extention your image is a copyvio. As far as there being no copyright on the design: it's true that the original stone carvings aren't copyrighted but 2-D representations of them are likely to be copyrighted, also there are many different ways of drawing it (as can be seen from [11], Image:Flag of Zimbabwe.svg and also the discussion on your talk page). /Lokal_Profil 20:53, 27 March 2008 (UTC)
So what you are saying is that there is no possible way to claim an image I drew myself using Inkscape as my own because a design with no copyright due to the author being dead for over 500 years has a copyright because someone else has drawn a picture of it elsewhere which in my mind is a ridiculous conclusion to come to. Mangwanani 21:40, 27 March 2008 (UTC)
What I'm saying is that if you redraw a copyrighted image (or happen to draw an identical image to one which has been drawn before) then you don't get to claim copyright for it. The process of vectorising an image does not (although it requires skill and time) add any originality to it and originality is the basis of copyright in almost all countries. As an example the Statue of Liberty is no longer copyrighted but my drawing of it would be, if you then draw the same drawing as I did then thats an unlucky coincident. Now if you would draw you own version of the bird based on the stone carvings (or several different photographs of them) then you could claim copyright for that image. /Lokal_Profil 22:24, 27 March 2008 (UTC)
Well how the hell can one draw an image based on another image and say "I didn't copy it therefore I havn't breached copyright"? Anyone can come along and say "I drew that first therefore you breached my copyright by making a derivative work". Simply, by your logic no one can draw anything on the basis that someone may have drawn it first and therefore a copyright has been breached. In other words, all art is illegal as it has been copied as elements of one painting are a "derivative" work of several others. Mangwanani 12:36, 28 March 2008 (UTC)
Öh... no. Most copyright related things tend to be linked to it having been published. For this case it's however completely irrelevant since there is no chance in hell you didn't know that an identical image existed since you traced it into a vector format. /Lokal_Profil 15:41, 28 March 2008 (UTC)
Anywho, I have changed the image. Is it orginial enough yet for you? Mangwanani 16:34, 28 March 2008 (UTC)
Not sure I think so but I'm not going to take this any further. I hope the above clarified the situation and if you are hapy with the end result I'll let the case rest. /Lokal_Profil 18:49, 28 March 2008 (UTC)
Well you didn't make the point very clear to me to start with but I understand where you are coming from. I just didn't get it as a Zimbabwe Bird is a Zimbabwe Bird to me and how else can it be drawn - if you see where I'm coming from. I hope the few tweaks I have made to the image allow it to finally be called my own. Mangwanani 20:16, 28 March 2008 (UTC)

Uhm[edit]

I've read the page that you've linked me but it's not so clear and simple to explain.

It starts with:

L'autorizzazione del disegnatore non è sufficiente. È necessario richiedere all'amministrazione comunale competente l'autorizzazione all'utilizzo secondo quanto indicato alla pagina Progetto:Coordinamento/Immagini#Stemmi

that means:

The authorisation of the painter is not enough. It's needed to ask to a communal administrator the authorisation of the use (of the images) under the terms indicated on the page Progetto:Coordinamento/Immagini#Stemmi.

Then, there's a few emails where a site release the rights of the Coat of Arms by the administrator of a site that says that's enough if the author are quoted (but I think that's needed also the authorisation). Sorry, but I'm not an expert of the coats of arms, and there's a lot of things that aren't so clear about them (a lot are under fair use on it.wiki but here are under GFDL). Senpai had once explained me something about that, but it was a lot complex, imho it's better if you ask him if you have further doubts ;-) --Filnik\b[Rr]ock\b!? 19:00, 29 March 2008 (UTC)

Image:Rubus chamaemorus in the USA.svg[edit]

Hello! You have licensed image Image:Rubus chamaemorus in the USA.svg under CC-BY-SA-2.5 license. The source information says the map is based on GFDL'd image Image:Blank US Map.svg. As far as I know, GFDL requires any derivative works to be licensed under the same license, i.e. GFDL. Correct me if wrong, but it seems to me that licensing Image:Rubus chamaemorus in the USA.svg under CC-BY-SA-2.5 violates the copyright of the original image. --Apalsola tc 23:57, 6 April 2008 (UTC)

Hi. Yes you are probably right. The reasoning that I have used before though is that Image:Blank US Map.svg is in fact a derivative of Image:Electoral map.svg and all of the elements I've used in have in fact remained unchanged from Image:Electoral map.svg. That said yes it's probably best to change the license to GFDL or "redo" the map based on Image:Electoral map.svg (which would mean repeating the same work as before with exactly the same result). I've contacted the creator of Image:Blank US Map.svg (again) to ask if he would consider dual-licensing the image and until I hear from him (or a sutiable tiem has passed) I'll leave the image as it is. Do you mind me asking how you came across the discrepency? /Lokal_Profil 13:12, 7 April 2008 (UTC)
No, I don't mind. I made a category for cloudberry and added cloudberry-related media, including your map, to that category. So, I wasn't paricularly looking for any discrepancies; I just came across it by accident. --Apalsola tc 17:43, 7 April 2008 (UTC)

Hi. In the image Image:Östergötland vapen.svg, the beak and the nails are blue. Versions of this coat of arms I have seen in local wikis (i.e., fr:Image:Ostergotland county.png) don't have blue color at all. Is this blue color correct? Cheers, Malafaya 17:29, 14 April 2008 (UTC)

Yes, the blue colour is specified by the blasoning blå draktunga och beväpning translates as blue dragon tongue and beväring which I don't know the english term for but it means beak, claws etc. /Lokal_Profil 20:43, 14 April 2008 (UTC)

You can only center the map on a specific longitudinal line, not on a latitude/parallel line. Assuming that you've got python and the two necessary tools installed and that you are running Windows all you need to do is open the MS-DOS prompt (or whatever it is called now) and go inte the python directory and enter:
python Scripts/nugsl-worldmap -o OUTPUTNAME.svg -t rotated -m 75E
Then open the created svg file in Inkscape say and center the image in the viewbox. I hope that helps. /Lokal_Profil 16:50, 15 April 2008 (UTC)

Hi, I recently took a look at this image and it shows that you are the author of it, so I thought I would let you know and hopefuly you could fix it. What's wrong with it? Well, according to the map, PEI is listed as one of the provinces that had legalized same-sex marriages before bill C-38 on July, 20 which made is legal across Canada. Which isn't so, PEI was not one of the provinces that individually legalized it like Quebec or BC did. so I thought I would let you know about it and hopefully you could fix it.

Question[edit]

Hi! I've just made this map and there's a problem with the legend. Could you please tell me how to get the colour number (like #123456) if I know its CMYK characteristics. Thanks in advance. Alaexis 19:36, 22 May 2008 (UTC)

It depends on the program you've been using. Since you seem to be using Corel Draw (or som other corel product) the straight forward ways of highlighting an object and checking it's "fill parameter" won't work. Instead you have to which class an object has, e.g. fil0 str0and then go into the style part of the code to see what these correspond to, e.g. .fil0 {fill:#00923F}. For this particular image I give the colours and their hex codes below:
   #00923F
   #FFF500
   #3B7039
   #7EA64B
   #BCD621
In general I'd recommend using a program like en:Inkscape instead since it gives you a larger control of the code in the image (making it easier to find and fix afterwards). Alternatively for some images (like derivatives of e.g. Image:Map of Russian subjects, 2008-03-01.svg) you can use a text editor although this requires some knowledge of svg code. Hope the above helps.
btw, I rearanged the source section of the image. /Lokal_Profil 00:05, 23 May 2008 (UTC)

Help[edit]

Hi Lokal Profil. I know you are clued up on copyright guidelines etc and I was wondering if you could give a bit of advice on this matter. The vector version of the Coat of Arms of Iceland is up for deletion for some reason - I'm rather unsure about - but I believe it has been made in the same way as all the other COAs and flags that are "allowed" on the wiki. It was made by me through the Graphics Lab on English Wikipedia exactly how every other vector image has been made through that project so I don't see where the problem is for this image. Please have a say here: Commons:Deletion requests/Image:Coat of Arms of Iceland.svg Thanks. Mangwanani 16:35, 25 May 2008 (UTC)

colour blindness[edit]

map question[edit]

I am in need of having a map that includes much of that whole chunk of land which spans between England and Japan broken into smaller pieces. The technical language for this is probably: "I need a map that has China and Russia broken into third level political divisions."

Where should I go to request such a map? And, if you are in the mood to give me the answer "Go to hell!", that would be fine as the last time I was in the hell that I know, it was nice. I had a hamburger there and that was good too. I would really like to go back there for a visit. -- :) carol (talk) 09:14, 2 July 2008 (UTC)

Not sure where you would get such maps. 2nd level maps are on Commons for both China and Russia but 3rd level... Acording to rumors (i.e. a link on the appropriate en.wiki article) this page is supposed to have maps of China at 1st to 3rd level, however it is in Chinese. You can always try and request an image at the en.wiki or commons graphic labs but there are no guarantees. /Lokal_Profil 21:52, 2 July 2008 (UTC)
I need a mixture of political "levels". Lithuania and Russia are equal in politics but they are so unequal in land area. -- carol (talk) 00:20, 3 July 2008 (UTC)
That is very true. Think second level should be easy to find but the third level are a problem. Also a final product incorperating all second and third level maps (with different projections) will be a lot of work. /Lokal_Profil 00:38, 3 July 2008 (UTC)
All is more than I want. For species range maps, just China and Russia. I tried to put that map of Russia onto that world map -- I am not so good with inkscape that I could curve it correctly. I made a map with that part of the world between England and Japan with Russia divided into three or four (they have had to divide it themselves! I have found divisions into 4 and into 8 (economic area or something for that latter division). To say that a species is found in Croatia (which is not so small) and in Russia -- it just doesn't work. In that same world map, United States and Canada have a lot of area as well -- as you hinted at and now that I think of it.
Politics is not natural. -- carol (talk) 00:46, 3 July 2008 (UTC)
That is very true =). The main problem with putting maps together is that different projections means that there is no easy way of curving one map to fit into the other. I've long thought of the best way to do range maps. Probably it's to just do a semi-transparent blobb on top of a world map and then do some clipping so that the areas in the sea are removed. Haven't tried it but I'm guessing it sounds easier then it is. For the US there is Image:USA Counties.svg which is always an overkill. At some point I should really convert maps such as Image:Trillium undulatum in the USA.svg to use that map since the USDA Plants Database has information on a county basis. /Lokal_Profil 01:00, 3 July 2008 (UTC)
For the example above the map is quite missrepresentative for say georgia wher the actual distribution is this. /Lokal_Profil 01:03, 3 July 2008 (UTC)
Heh, that counties map is really something! I am having problems making it easy to make range maps for the world via areas that are sized between second level political divisions and states/provinces. The United States has somewhat logically gridded subdivisions, as has Africa. I really need Russia and China to be more subdivided on the world map before I can start to think about county level distribution of plants and varmits. Heh, you are just being a problem :) -- carol (talk) 01:51, 3 July 2008 (UTC)
Glad to be of assistance =P. And now sleep, or at least conspiracy to commit sleep. /Lokal_Profil 01:58, 3 July 2008 (UTC)

Empty COA?[edit]

Is there such a thing as an "empty" COA or an image saying "no free representation of this excists" or such? Some templates in Norwegian (and probably other languages as well) returns "This country/city/whatever doesn't have a COA if there is no image link, which is wrong in cases where a COA exists but is not licensed for free use. See no:Canada for an example. Would be easier to link to such an image instead of fixing all the templates. Finn Rindahl (talk) 15:04, 5 July 2008 (UTC)

There might be something in Category:Coat of arms placeholders. The one that I've normally seen used is Image:Coats of arms of None.svg. /Lokal_Profil 15:40, 5 July 2008 (UTC)
Thank you. The questionmark is somewhat similar to "doesn't exist" or rather "unknown" - what I was looking for was more of "no free license" - I'll see if I can get around to make a Norwegian version of one of those French text COA. Finn Rindahl (talk) 16:12, 5 July 2008 (UTC)
Well "no free license" would basically translate into a "free version has yet to be made". Don't know if there is a CoA project on any of the norwegian wikis otherwise it could link to them in some way. /Lokal_Profil 02:22, 6 July 2008 (UTC)

Sundsvall vapen[edit]

Sundsvall vapen.svg

I notice you have uploaded several SVG images of Swedish kommun arms, and I wonder if you have an SVG image of the arms of Sundsvall. Tack så mycket! Wilhelm meis (talk) 00:51, 6 July 2008 (UTC)

The problem with that CoA is that I haven't found any alternative sources for what a "stormhat" looks like. I've got the "muskötgafflar" done already though. /Lokal_Profil 02:20, 6 July 2008 (UTC)

Have you tried looking for a "kettle helmet" or "kettle hat"? 65.14.16.112 05:24, 6 July 2008 (UTC)

Is that the same thing? I'll give it a look. The main problem with the swedish word is that it's also the name of a flower and that use is much more prominent. /Lokal_Profil 13:58, 6 July 2008 (UTC)
I always thought it was more specific then that. But [14] seems to agree that it's generic. To make things more confusing stormhatt can also mean a top hat. I'll give it a try. /Lokal_Profil 16:19, 6 July 2008 (UTC)
OK? /Lokal_Profil 16:38, 6 July 2008 (UTC)

Excellent! That really looks good, and clearly depicts what the blazon indicates. Indeed, the helmet on the arms on the Sundsvall website certainly looks to me like what I've always known as a "kettle hat", which you've captured beautifully here. Good work!

hello[edit]

Are you running the "bots who feign trouble" today? -- carol (talk) 08:10, 6 July 2008 (UTC)

Do you know that the other day, I wrote something about giving tickets to people who were going only 5mph over the speed limit. Then, when I was driving, I pretended that I was under the influence of my personal favorite intoxication so that I would drive between 5 and 10 miles below the posted limit. So sweet are my memories of times like this.
Do you ever have a situation like this? -- carol (talk) 08:14, 6 July 2008 (UTC)
? /Lokal_Profil 13:57, 6 July 2008 (UTC)
The questions are about cause and effect in the not so natural world. The map of the United States that was divided into counties was very similar to the need of an editor to put the word "the" into a tree that I am making.
To not communicate and to keep up with an offensive action until the person who is trying to communicate is reduced to suggesting that there is a learning disabled person running things (or similar summaries) is kind of an old routine which would kind of resemble the inclusion of a map which has been divided into counties to a person who is requesting a map of a huge area be broken into smaller portions.
I think I said something about being a trouble maker, so when I had a trouble maker, I came here.
Injecting difficulties into a simple solution, are there rewards for that? -- carol (talk) 02:17, 7 July 2008 (UTC)

Protestant branches[edit]

Hello, thanks for creating a vectorised version of the Protestant branches image [15] [16]. I have noticed that you have inserted the word "Baptists" where it should be "Congregationalists". Could that be corrected please? cheers, 220.253.145.68 12:38, 10 July 2008 (UTC)

Problem med svg-bilder[edit]

Hejsan. Du har ju jobbat en del med svg-bilder, så jag undrar om du kan hjälpa mig med ett problem jag har. Jag skulle ladda upp ett förslag till Wikiboken om fåglar i svg-format, men inga inklippta bilder kom med i överföringen. Jag har raderingsanmält bilden, men har den inte tagits bort kan du hitta den på Image:Wikibok1_framsida_med_rygg.svg. Jag använder Inkscape som redigeringsverktyg. -- Jsdo1980 (talk) 11:28, 21 July 2008 (UTC)

Problemet ar att du har lankat till bilderna snarare an infogat dem. Eftersom fotobilderna anda inte ar i vector format sa finns det ingen bra anledning att anvanda svg (de har ju anda begransad upplosning) rekomenderar darfor att du istallet laddar upp bilden som png fil i hog upplosning. Du kan anvanda Inkscape for att exportera filen till png gformat (Export Bitmap). Alternativt om du vill behalla svg formatet sa tror jag att kommandot som behovs ar effects/images/embedd all images men jag ar inte saker. /Lokal_Profil 01:15, 2 August 2008 (UTC)

Request for bilateral maps[edit]

Image:Seal of New York City.png[edit]

That's weird. I could swear that I've changed the licensing template before removing the no source tag. Well, I've re-changed the licensing template to {{PD-old-100}} and added the source I used to determine it's PD status. Please, remove the no source tags if you're satisfied with my source and license information. Cheers, KveD (talk) 21:52, 20 August 2008 (UTC)

In 1915 started the debate about the foundation date of NYC, the seal it's the same since 1784 and apparently the only thing that changed was the year shown in the bottom. Maybe we should ask some other admin or make a DR. KveD (talk) 23:06, 20 August 2008 (UTC)

Hej! Jag har länge beundrat dina heraldiska alster på Wikipedia och undrar om du skulle kunna ta itu med en historiska flagga. Som du kanske vet har jag jobbat en del på Kina-relaterade sidor och det slog mig att det inte finns någon Commons-version av Shanghais stadsfullmäktiges flagga (Shanghai International settlement), där bland annat den gamla unionsflaggan finns med.

Think the flag is supposed to be all white, At least the two images i saw had the german flag being all white. /Lokal_Profil 14:20, 26 September 2008 (UTC)
Well the pre-WW1 German flag was most definitely not all-white, so it seems a little odd for it to be represented as all-white here... AnonMoos (talk) 14:51, 26 September 2008 (UTC)
The two images above together with the en.wp articles about which flags where used at the time was all I had to go by. Was there possibly a naval jack/ trade flag or something similar which was all white? /Lokal_Profil 14:57, 26 September 2008 (UTC)
Almost all national Zweites Reich flags were based on a horizontal tricolor of black-white-red, or an elaborated Scandinavian-type cross of black on white. The only all-white flags I've ever heard of are Image:Naval_Ensign_of_the_Kingdom_of_France.svg and the banner of the Stewards of Gondor... AnonMoos (talk) 15:39, 26 September 2008 (UTC)
Seems odd. The page with the most inf o seems to be [19]. On the other hand [20] says Prussia rather then Germany. On the other hand [21] says there was a slightly different version of the flag, missing the German flag and is simply a white space where the flag would have been. This modification was a protest against the German European aggression of the time, presumably around WW1.Further down the same page there is an image of the "Shanghai Russian Regiment" which uses the same seal but a german flag which looks like Image:Flagge Preußen (1892-1918).png. /Lokal_Profil 15:59, 26 September 2008 (UTC)

Pacific-centred maps in Bilateral template[edit]

The "PD because ineligible" motivation is only valid for very simple images (basic geometric shapes, text etc.) and is most defiitly not applicable to complex illustrations such as those coat of arms. If there is a portuguese law proclaming that all portuguese coat of arms/crests and flags at any administrative level is public domain independently of who created the illustration then please provide me with a link. /Lokal_Profil 22:14, 18 October 2008 (UTC)

Anyone who has doubts can send an email to that address. As for the crests, that debate is old, so it will be hard to search. I search other images in the same situation, like the flag of Portugal, they putted the author died 70 yrs ago. Anyway, I was not the one that did a research about that and noticed that was illegal to copyright public flags or coat of arms, but searching that info in wikipedia and after a long time, so you're possibly handling the issue in the wrong way,.... Anyway, the source is the same, it can be changed as son as people send an email to that address.

Would plz try and do me this favour - I'm now started to learn for B.A in political science in the Ramat Gan College in Israel, and i can't spare much time on wikipedia as i did before. SO if u can plz upload the image to en.wiki on "fair use" for me. i'll be really grateful... thanx in advance. --Oren neu dag (talk) 16:09, 19 October 2008 (UTC)

I'm not very familiar with the fair use workings on en.wiki but I left a request on en:Wikipedia_talk:WikiProject_Fair_use#Coat_of_Arms_of_Myanmar so hopefully someone there will fix it with the right templates etc. Good luck with your studies =) /Lokal_Profil 16:28, 19 October 2008 (UTC)

Vector image replacements[edit]

Hi. CD is now replacing the Vector images png by SVG[23], [24]. Will be running for a while, I think. Mind you that en.wp chose to block CD for some unknown reason (it appears to be because of an unannounced bug). I suggest to consider 'usage on en.wp only' as 'orphaned'. Cheers!

Image:Sudan coa.png[edit]

All I did with this was to take the existing .GIF and convert it to .PNG and reupload it. I suggest if the original copyright for the GIF was OK, so it is for the PNG, being a derived image. For the time being, I've tagged it with {{PD-Sudan}}, but to be honest, as an Admin on en:wiki, I've got better things to do. Thanks. --Rodhullandemu (talk) 22:46, 27 October 2008 (UTC)

Swedish caption[edit]

Hi Lokal Profil, as you are a swedish-speaker, could you kindly check whether the caption in Image:080614 l-j 5209-630x1008.jpg (or at the source [25]) is equivalent or justifies the GFDL license choosen for that image. Thanks. --Túrelio (talk) 09:51, 30 October 2008 (UTC)

Need help with deletion of Vector-Images.com Images[edit]

Hi!
In the above images a grave mistake was done by me. I thought that these images were free to be distribute dand so on that notion, I uploaded them to Commons.
Now, that i have recieved an e-mail from Vector-Images.com "asking" me to remove all vectorized images that I have uploaded to commons, I come to you you for help. I have the utmost respect for you and for your contribution to this enterprise, and all that I have done was only in good spirit and out of pure innocence.
Please help me to delete those images. and to restore peace between myself and that dear website.
Thanking u in advance. --Oren neu dag (talk) 17:11, 3 November 2008 (UTC)

Some of the flags might be public domain in this list, so we need to look at each image carefully. User:Zscout370 (Return fire) 17:45, 3 November 2008 (UTC)
If there are pre-VI.com versions then we should revert to those. There might also be open-clip-art alternatives for some. But otherwise (unless the flag is extremely simplistic) they should probably be deleted. A few exceptions might apply though. Moscow flags and CoA are {{PD-RU-exempt}} for instance. So Vector-images.com would have to argue differently in that case. Since the images were uploaded we've completely reinterpreted {{Vector-images.com}} to a point where their images (even if raster) are assumed to not be ok unless special circumstances (e.g. PD-RU-exempt) applies. I'll look into the images above though. /Lokal_Profil 15:20, 4 November 2008 (UTC)
Removed the strike out of the Ethiopia flag since even the first version is a derivative of the Vector-images.com png image. /Lokal_Profil 15:24, 4 November 2008 (UTC)

File:Death_penalty_statutes_in_the_United_States.svg[edit]

You have made a change on 15 December 2007 on the map about death penalty statutes in the United States.

I can't make change on this map.

In this map, the state Massachussetts is blue, which means it doesn't had a death penalty statute.

But it's false. Massachussetts had a death penalty statute who was found unconstitutionnal in 1984.

Can you change this map and feature Massachussetts with the same color as the state of New-York ?

From Commons:Deletion requests/Images from webchantier.com[edit]

You should know, LP, that you will be held responsible for drawing replacements for all of these images should they end up deleted. -- Denelson83 (talk) 07:19, 6 July 2008 (UTC)

Because you uploaded images against the Commons guidelines? Not sure I see the logic. /Lokal_Profil 16:51, 6 July 2008 (UTC)
Because you submitted them for deletion. Now I and at least one other user have managed to replace some of those nuked images with free versions, but others are too complex for me to tackle, such as the coat of arms of Monaco. You gotta have at least some measure of sympathy here, and judging from my past interactions with you, you don't seem to have any. -- Denelson83 (talk) 07:04, 28 November 2008 (UTC)
When I started out on Commons the same thing happened to me. I upploaded vector images I'd worked on but which were in turn based on a raster image. Later down the line I discovered the raster was unfree and thus my vector file had to go. The only person to blame in that case was me since I hadn't done enough fact checking to start with. Blaming the person who discovered it makes no sense what so ever, they were not free enough for Commons so they had to go. That you've managed to replace some of the images is great. Had the unfree images not been nuked then those free versions would never have been created and creating free content is what Commons is all about. No I'm not going to draw replacements for the images I nominated just as I wouldn't take a photograph of some celeberty just because I found that the image we had here was a copytight violation. That said I might still work on some of them but NOT because I nominated their unfree predecessors for deletion. /Lokal_Profil 02:37, 30 November 2008 (UTC)

Hi Lokal, please, explain me further why this request. I am not use to just "copy and paste", but derivative work, so I make a creation. If you find that one as "sourced" then I will completely create a new one. In the other hand, I cannot see the license or how can we determine the original source (creator). Eventually, I find your request as an obstacle for COA creators, as even if "copy and paste" the original creator cannot be identified. Rgds, --SanchoPanzaXXI (talk) 08:23, 16 December 2008 (UTC)

Hi Lokal, thank you for your reply. I find this issue a bit complex because the language, I would prefer to discuss and clarify this issue with someone in my mother language...I have read the license that states "(...)attribute the work in the manner specified by the author or licensor files". That's the point now, how to understand the "manner specified"? and also, what are the elements to take? all the elements, even the geometrical? in the case there are hundreds of files, which one take?. Take care, rgrds, --SanchoPanzaXXI (talk) 18:24, 18 December 2008 (UTC)
Hello Lokal, well, let me summarize this issue: I agree to recognize any artistical work in the files I upload, by referring its author name and file source in the summary...but only if I have used that element as digital support for my own creation, and especially if I have made no change at all. My concern was that in case that this element is shown in many files (let say for example, the spanish crown as designed by HansenBCN) what I would like is not to recognize any of that files, but the one we can consider as the original. This way will help to mention the real author. In the other hand, I would like from now to create only figures from my creation, based on ancient documents or pictures form real world...what if I create a new crossbow, shall I upload a new file?. I wish you to have a nice holidays and happy X-mas to you and people you love. Cheers, --SanchoPanzaXXI (talk) 11:39, 24 December 2008 (UTC)

100SEK[edit]

Hej,

jag sag att bildet File:100SEKdetail.JPG raderades. Faktiskt hade jag ringad på riksbankan och de sa att deras bild var publika och det var okej att upplåda det. Vad som jag inte förstår är att jag har också skrivit det nere här också. Jag vet att det är längre sen, men jag verkligen tror att du skulle måste läsa sådana saker. Nu finns det inget att göra för att jag har det inte längre. Verkligen tyvärr.

ciao, LordDamorcro

Att det är ok att ladda upp är inte samma sak som att den är fri att använda. Utan en bekräftelse på att vem som helst får använda bilden till vad som helst inklusive kommersiella ändamål samt för att skapa härledda verk så kan bilden inte laddas upp till Commons. I detta fallet hade du dessutom anget att du var upphovsrättsmannen till bilden genom mallen {{GFDL-user|LordDamorcro|nl}}. /Lokal_Profil 13:40, 19 December 2008 (UTC)

Copyrights[edit]

Hi,

I was helping a friend to build a document cover in SVG and found one of your images that I would like to modify and use in the document. I'd love to put the proper attribution on the document but unfortunally it would not be possible. I read the licensing information and it state that the copyright holder can waive any condition in the licensing. Is that something that you'd be prepared to do if I were to give you more details on what I'd like to do with the Image and which image I'am talking about?

sgaron (talk)

Depends on the image, which one is it? Normaly I'd just accept something like "Bla. image by/modified from image by Lokal_Profil, CC-BY-SA-2.5" if it's digital it would need to be linked but if it's on paper then that text is enough. /Lokal_Profil 18:19, 23 December 2008 (UTC)

PD-old kraver att 70ar har gatt sedan fotografens dod. Om fotografen ar okand (dvs. bilden publicerades forsta gangen utan fotograf eller liknande snarare an att du inte vet vem det ar) kan en av mallarna som lankas till fran Template:Anonymous work (t.ex. Template:Anonymous-EU) anvandas. Dessa ar dock valdigt kansliga for vilket land bilden komemr ifran.

Ett stort tack![edit]

Hejsan Lokal Profil, jag har ikväll för första gången kollat lite närmare på dina bidrag till commons, och är faktiskt helt förbluffad. Dina tolkningar av vapen och flaggor är fruktansvärt bra, och du har gått igenom mängder av bilder. Därför vill jag tacka dig för ditt arbete! :) Förresten, när jag ändå är här är jag nyfiken på hur du gör de här bilderna? Du måste ha standardiserat arbetet på något sätt? //moralist (talk) 01:43, 26 December 2008 (UTC)

Tackar så mycket. Just vapen är rätt lätta att standardisera genom att de ofta använder sig av samma figurer. D.v.s. har man väl gjort/hittat ett bra lejon kan man sedan återanvända den figuren i flera vapen. Som det är nu har jag byggt upp en stor bas av vapen som jag sedan klipper och klistrar från. Problemet ligger i vapen med unika eller komplexa figurer (därav att inte alla kommunvapen är gjorda) eller de vapen där jag inte kan få tag i blasoneringarna (därav att många militärvapen saknas). /Lokal_Profil 15:13, 4 January 2009 (UTC)

The traces look great, an improvement was definitively needed. Just as a general comment. If you save the file as "Plain SVG" (if using Inkscape) it removes some of the unnecessary code, specifically stuff like the pathname to the folder in which you created the file, this might be interesting from a privacy point of view. For example since this file was created on the desktop it includes your username on the computer in question.

Template:Military Insignia[edit]

Hi, I have one small request, do you have any idea how to change this template? Because it adds to files category:Badges of rank. It creates the situation when graphics are in both general and particular category, so, when there are 500 images it is impossible to find anything (at the very begito you re are 100 files from Austria, that are also in autrian category). Sorry for that I write :P but I found that you also have edited this template. J a1 (talk) 18:08, 20 January 2009 (UTC)

In the good old days [27] the images would be placed in a specific subcategory based on the army parameter in the template. To remove the general category now just add |category=1 to the template. e.g. {{Millitary Insignia|Austria National Police|category=1}}. /Lokal_Profil 17:07, 21 January 2009 (UTC)

Wikikoden för licensmall felaktig[edit]

Hej! Jag vill uppmärksamma att licensmallen Template:Cc-by-sa-2.5 (och den underliggande Template:Cc-by-sa-2.5/en) per den 24 november 2008 har aningen underlig kod, och därför renderas visuellt felaktigt när den införlivas i commons-artiklar. Det har sin grund i att någon tillsammans med en {{Autotranslate}}-mall infogade kod på ett inkorrekt vis. Här finns den redigeringen: oldid=16265310. Fram till och med den då omedelbart föregående versionen genererades licensmallen fortfarande korrekt. Sedan den felaktigt utförda redigeringen har i skrivande stund tre administratörer på commons gjort ändringar i sagda licensmall, men utan att korrigera felet. (Ingen skugga över dem dock – alla har inte tid att studera alla detaljer, eller kanske den kunskap som behövs, eller ens lust. Och detta är förstås frivilligt.) Som "vanlig" användare på commons har jag inte behörighet att göra ändringar i koden, då den som till de flesta (alla?) licensmallar tack och lov är skrivskyddad. Själva {{Autotranslate}}-mallen används som du säkert vet även i andra licensmallar – exempelvis Template:Cc-by-2.5 – och där ser den ut att fungera som den ska. Eftersom flera admins av någon anledning gått bet, så vänder jag mig till dig istället, då jag sett och uppskattar det jobb du gör här och på svenskspråkiga Wikipedia. Och om inte du har tid, lust eller ork att fixa felet, så känner du säkert till någon annan behörig som har det… :-) --Tommy Kronkvist (talk) 03:47, 21 January 2009 (UTC)

Hello,
at the first time, sorry for my bad English :-)
The Image Phpmyvisites-logo.png is from the Software Phpmyvisites which is released under the GNU.
So i think the Image is released under the GNU License.

No worries. The image got tagged because {{PD-textlogo}} is not a good license for it. Since then the license has been fixed (changed to {{GPL}} and the image should be ok. =) /Lokal_Profil 22:52, 5 February 2009 (UTC)

Försvarsmaktslogotyp[edit]

Hej,

Måste säga att det var gediget arbetat med logotyperna. Väldigt omfattande arbete.

Jag jobbar inom Försvarsmakten och vi skulle väldigt gärna lägga upp våra officiella logotyper på wikipedia om det finns ett intresse bland användarna. Givetvis är det smickrande att ni gjort egna logotyper, men liksom andra svenska o utländska myndigheter o företag så skulle vi givetvis uppskatta den ursprungliga logotypen.

Min fråga till dig är, hur lägger man upp en bild/logotyp på wikipedia eller kan du göra det åt oss om du är intresserad? Vi har alla förbands officiella logotyper att tillgå.

Mvh,
Mats Nyström
FM Informationsstab


Hej Mats,
Det ar kul att ni garna vill lagger upp era logotyper pa wikipedia. Sjalva processen ar latt men det finns ett hinder. Alla bilder som laggs in pa Wikipedia maste vara fria for vem som helst (aven utanfor wikipedia) att anvanda for vad som helst (inklusive kommersiella andamal samt for att skapa harledda verk). Om ni trots detta fortfarande ar intresserade av att slappa logotyperna fria sa skulle det vara underbart och jag hjalper garna till med uppladdningsbiten, men av erfarenhet vet jag att de flesta foretag och organisationer inte ar redo att slappa dessa rattigheter till sina bilder.
Anledningen till att Wikipedia (i detta fallet jag) kan skapa fria versioner ar for att de logotyper ni anvander ar grundade pa heraldiska vapen. Eftersom heraldiska vapen (till skillnad fran logotyper) enbart ar definerade av en blasonering (snarare an en specifik grafisk framstallning) betyder det att alla heraldiskt korrekta tolkningar av dem kan anvandas. Detta tillater oss att gora illustrationer som ar fria nog for wikipedia utan att gora intrang pa upphovsratten hos de tolkningar FM anvander sig av samtidigt som wikipedias tolkningar fortfarande ar lika korrekta som FMs versioner.
Engelsksprakiga wikipedia har nagot annorlunda regler an de flesta andra sprakversioner och tillater en del upphovsrattsskyddade logotyper, darav kan man stota pa vissa foretags och organisationers logotyper pa deras sidor. Aven de har dock begransnignen att dessa bilder enbart far anvandas om inga fria alternativ finns att tillga, eftersom heraldiska vapen alltid (i teorin) har fria alternativ ar/bor dessa inte vara tillatna pa engelsksprakiga wikipedia.
Oavsett om ni valjer att slappa era bilder fria eller inte uppskattar jag kommentarer etc. kring FMs heraldiska vapen.
P.S. (ursakta for bristen pa svenska bokstaver)

Hej,

Tack för det utförliga svaret. Vi skulle vilja lägga upp våra blasoneringar på wikipedia. Hur gör man för att ladda upp bilder?

/Mats

Ursäkta för det sena svaret. Är det blasoneringarna elelr de upphovsrättsligt skyddade bilderna du vill ladda upp?
Om det är bilderna så behöver du registrera ett konto här på Commons. När du sedan laddar upp bilderna behöver du märka dem med en fri licens. Eftersom det är officiella bilder krävs det dessutom att du skickar ett mail permissions-commons@wikimedia.org där du detaljerar vilka bilder det gäller samt bifogar bevis på att konstnärerna för vart enskilt vapen släpper bilden under den licensen. Alternativt om konstnärerna har överlåtit upphovsrätten till bilderna till Försvarsmakten så krävs ett bevis från dem (dvs. någon som är tillräckligt högt stående för att få fatta ett sådant beslut, gärna någon med lite juridiskt kunnande dessutom) på att de äger upphovsrätten till bilderna samt släpper dem under den fria licensen. /Lokal_Profil 20:16, 17 April 2009 (UTC)

File:Timor-Leste CoA.jpg[edit]

The former License was deleted by User:Ed veg:

== Beschreibung == {{Information |Description=CoA of Timor-Leste since 18th january 2007, colours a little bit incorrect. Use [[:image:Timor-Leste CoA.gif]]! |Source=Black/white version at http://www.unotil.org/legal/RDTL-Law/RDTL-Laws-P/Law-2007-02.pdf coloured version by Jens Pattke |Date=22.04.2007 |Author=Jens Pattke, permission was send to permissions@wikimedia.org }}

Anyhow, the CoA has a mistake because the source was not accurate enough. The letters must be ruby red, like it is in the corrected image File:Timor-Leste CoA.gif. I asked for deletion before, but nobody did it. So if you want, you can delete it. Nobody is using it. ;-)

Lilla riksvapnet[edit]

Så du har ändrat ståndpunkt mellan här och här? Varför inte ta en vanlig DR? /Pieter Kuiper (talk) 07:22, 28 February 2009 (UTC)

Skillnaden var att den första DR bara handlade om det vanliga "det här vapnet ser inte ut som logotypen jag kanner igen". Den nya speedy handlar om att jag såg att kronan (i png versione) och hela vapnet (eller atminstonne kronan) i svg versionen ar derivat av statsarkivets bild. /Lokal_Profil 16:41, 28 February 2009 (UTC)
Med kronorna menar jag den ovanpå skölden. /Lokal_Profil 16:48, 28 February 2009 (UTC)

Radera inte förbättrade vapen[edit]

Hej!

Jag såg att du raderat ett antal vapen jag just gjort.

I vissa fall angav du som motiv att vapnen (lilla riksvapnet) skulle vara ett derivat. Men det stämmer inte; det är baserat på en fri svg som är baserad på en tryckt bild från 1908 och som därför är i public domain. Var snäll och kolla upp sådant innan du markerar för radering. Jag gissar dock att det verkliga skälet till att du velat radera bilderna var att jag ersatte några vapen du hade laddat upp.

De vapen du gjort motsvarar ett fantastiskt arbete, det är verkligen imponerande. Men trots det så är det möjligt att göra en del förbättringar. Färgerna i dina vapen är märkliga; röd-orange istället för guld och en stickande klarblå istället för marinblå. Vidare så ser det bättre ut med mer luft på skölden och med mer eleganta former i övrigt. Jag förstår att de är del av en serie, men vapnen borde förbättras trots detta. Efterhand kan man ersätta alla vapen med förbättrade versioner.

Koyos (talk) 08:25, 28 February 2009 (UTC)

Som sagt ladda gärna upp dina versioner under nya filnamn men skriv inte över de nuvarande filerna eftersom det inte handlar om en självklar förbättring. Se bara till att källreferenserna är tillräckliga (se meddelande pa din diskussionssida). vad gäller derivata märkningen är det samma situation som kronorna (dvs. de ovanpå skölden) i File:Sweden-lesser-coa.png, dvs. att de är baserade på statsarkivets upphovsrättsligt skyddade ritnign. Dina nya kronor verkar dock vara ok (glöm inte att ange källa för dem ifall du inte har ritat dem helt själv utan att använda delar från andra bilder). /Lokal_Profil 16:52, 28 February 2009 (UTC)
Vad gäller utfyllnad av skölden (luft på skölden) så är den heraldiska traditionen snarare tvärt om, dvs. att sklden bör vara så fylld som möjligt. Om du ändå håller på att ändra färgerna så rekommenderar jag att du byter till de som rekommenderas här. /Lokal_Profil 17:11, 28 February 2009 (UTC)
Jag har sett den sidan med de definierade färgerna, men tack för tipset. De färger jag har använt är mycket lika de färgerna, dock inte exakta. Den blåa CMYK nyans som anges där blir mycket ljus, mycket ljusare än faktiska vapen man ser i tryck, så man bör lägga svart till den färgen.
Kungakronan du talar om tog jag direkt från en av kronorna i Greater coat of arms of Sweden.svg (en av de på lejonen). Så den kommer inte från någon illustration från Riksarkivet. Illustatören till Greater coat of arms of Sweden.svg säger att han har utgått från Sweden greater coat of arms.jpg när han skapade den, och den filen är i public domain. Att två kronor ser lika ut behöver inte betyda att den ena kommer från den andra: det kan också vara så att båda kronorna bygger på samma original. Om detta original är PD så är det helt ok att olika derivat liknar varandra. När det gäller den här typen av heraldiska element är det faktiskt mycket sannolikt att det är så. Illustrationerna hos riksarkivet bygger på tidigare bilder de också. Koyos (talk) 18:06, 28 February 2009 (UTC)
Jo jag såg nyss att de lejonen för den kronan. Problemet är att de kommer från kronan i File:Sweden-lesser-coa.png som i sin tur kommer ifrån Riksarkivet. Jag har kontaktat SSolberg och bett honom använda sig av kronan på skölden eller på manteln även på lejonen (de kronorna är ok). Hur som helst är din nya kronan nog ok (och dessutom bra mycket snyggare).
Färgerna är väl följande

Omkategorisering[edit]

Du har omkategoriserat några bilder som tidigare låg i category:MS Polar star, och lagt dem i category:Njord. Dels vapnet men också de tecknade bilderna, Polar Star och Njord är samma båt och teckningarna av båten föreställer fartyget som det ser ut i dag (med namnet MS Polar Star) (därför skapade jag en ny mapp när jag laddade upp fotona och placerade allt där). Därför verkar det du gjorde leda till en lite ologisk uppdelning eller har jag missat något? Mvh --Ankara (talk) 01:12, 19 March 2009 (UTC)

Det inte jag som omkategoriserat utan user:Stunteltje. Däremot kan jag tycka att vapnet hör hemma i Njord kategorin (tillsammans med eventuella foton av fartyget som Njord) eftersom vapnet enbart förts av Njord och aldrig av Polar Star. Flyttar däremot över tecknignarna eftersom de föreställer just Polar Star. Har dessutom lagt till kommentarer på kategorisidorna. /Lokal_Profil 23:51, 19 March 2009 (UTC)

Category:Njord[edit]

You emptied category:Njord by redirecting two files to MV Polar star, although they had NJORD in their name. Special reason or intented to just copy the files and moved by mistake? --Stunteltje (talk) 07:22, 20 March 2009 (UTC)

Please see the discussion directly above. I do agree however that the files should probably be renamed. /Lokal_Profil 18:15, 20 March 2009 (UTC)
Sorry, but I don't speak the language and can't read the message. Looking better at the pictures, I saw that the ship name is Polar Star, so I understand why they are moved. My suggestion is to copy the files with a new name on the ship, unfortunately I don't have the knowledge to change the drawing(s) myself. Shame on me, being a a former profesional draftsman. :=)) --Stunteltje (talk) 21:13, 20 March 2009 (UTC)
Sorry about that So used to mixing that I didn't even reflect. The name fits the ship. Njord got renamed Polar Star and according to the photo File:MS_Polar_Star2.jpg the drawing seems to be correct. What I suggest however is that the filename gets changed since the ship might not have had the same colours (and bear logo) as Njord. /Lokal_Profil 23:56, 20 March 2009 (UTC)

Raderad bild[edit]

Hej LP!

För länge sedan fick jag en bild raderad File:Eliade01.jpg. Jag svarade på förfrågan om källa här: User_talk:Micke#Image_Tagging_Image:Eliade01.jpg, trots det raderades den, förmodligen pga att ingen kollade på min diskuss om jag svarat. Jag har inte tagit tag i det förrän nu och tänkte att du kanske ville kolla på det. Jag tog bilden från Rumänska wikipedia och det står klart och tydligt att bilden är PD, fast jag kan så klart inte verifiera det eftersom jag inte kan rumänska.

BlankMap-USA-states-Canada-provinces, HI closer.svg[edit]

Hi Lokal,

I'm interested in using this image (and perhaps others eventually) in a rich web application for my small company. The path and layer image data of the SVG would be programatically transformed and manipulated to present a thematic map of energy-related data along with the data set(s) I'm analyzing and presenting.

I would like to obtain non-exclusive rights to use this image commercially but don't wish have the CC-BY-SA license applied to my resulting work. I'm willing to attribute your efforts in our application, however, and could possibly pay a small amount for a commercial license or waiver to the share-alike component of this license.

I see this particular image appears to be a derived work based on the efforts of at least one other user (Roke/Astrokey44?) so this may require his/her consent and licensing as well.

Could send me your contact information so we could discuss this in more detail via phone or email?

Thanks,

-jmh (talk) 22:07, 8 June 2009 (UTC)

vector-images.com[edit]

Hi, is this this desired result? Looking at the {{vector-images.com}} template, it doesn't look like there's any way to add a PD-because tag. I understand the purpose of tagging these vector-images.com images, but I'm not sure about doing it in this way (at least now after some time has past since it was a valid tag). Having it wrap the license tag like {{self}} does suggests that that information (it being from VI.com) is somehow related to the PD status. Wouldn't it be better to disassociate it with anything to do with licensing? I know you've worked a lot in this area so that's why I'm asking you if we should change this. (BTW, I would think we would have some general template for Swaziland since "Swaziland does not have legislation on copyright." That's pretty substantial.

Treaty of Pelindaba[edit]

Hello! The image on this page: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Treaty_of_Pelindaba seems to be one of yours. I just wanted to say that a new country, Burundi, has just ratified the treaty and I have no way of updating the image and wondered if you can do it? Many thanks 93.157.72.53 13:03, 16 August 2009 (UTC)

Seems as though JWB has already fixed it =) /Lokal_Profil 00:56, 22 August 2009 (UTC)

Category:Fjellstedts bibel med kommentarer del I (1890)[edit]

Hejsan!

Skulle du kunna vara vänlig att radera pdf-erna i ovanstående kategori.

Jag ska försöka fixa jpg-varianter istället, det visade sig inte riktigt fungera med pdf...

Någon gång är man ju nybörjare oxå... -- Lavallen (talk) 12:07, 23 August 2009 (UTC)

Inga problem. Pdferna är nu borta. Jpg filen ser mycket bättre ut =) /Lokal_Profil 12:22, 23 August 2009 (UTC)
En sak bara. Det är nog bättre om du skriver "Scanned by: User Lavallen" i "author" fältet. Som det står nu ser det ut som om du är bibelns upphovsman =) /Lokal_Profil 12:24, 23 August 2009 (UTC)
Möjligen till och med "Written by: Peter Fjellstedt (1802-1881)<br>"Scanned by: User [[User:Lavallen|Lavallen]]" om jag tolkat det ratt och det ar han som skrev den. /Lokal_Profil 12:26, 23 August 2009 (UTC)
Lika bra det blir rätt från början, bara första delen är ju på 950 sidor och det finns tre delar...
Har och göra ett tag med andra ord... -- Lavallen (talk) 12:32, 23 August 2009 (UTC)
Och ja, det är ingen bibel, utan snarare en bibelkommentar... -- Lavallen (talk) 12:33, 23 August 2009 (UTC)
Pinsamt, jag har märkt att jag gjort ett misstag och det är inte litet. Jag har missat att scanna in sidan 12-13. Det betyder att:

File:Biblia Fjellstedt I (1890) 022.jpg bör flyttas till File:Biblia Fjellstedt I (1890) 024.jpg
Biblia Fjellstedt I (1890) 023.jpg bör flyttas till Biblia Fjellstedt I (1890) 025.jpg
etc fram till:
File:Biblia Fjellstedt I (1890) 046.jpg bör flyttas till File:Biblia Fjellstedt I (1890) 048.jpg

Är detta möjligt? Eller ska jag ladda upp nya versioner? -- Lavallen (talk) 09:58, 25 August 2009 (UTC)

Jag börjar så smått ladda upp nya versioner... -- Lavallen (talk) 11:26, 25 August 2009 (UTC)
Hej. Det ser ut som om du hunnit fixa alla sidorna redan. Vad jag vet så går det inte att byta namn annat än genom att ladda upp filen igen under det nya namnet. Så din lösning var nog den enda. /Lokal_Profil 22:17, 25 August 2009 (UTC)
Jag hade pinsamt mycket problem med en av filerna. Hur jag än laddade upp en ny version så var det den gamla som syntes. Jag började leta efter fel i min egen dator och bytte mappar och var beredd att byta till den andra datorn när jag gjorde ett litet försök med att rensa (ctrl-F5) och helt plötsligt så var rätt fil där...
Man lär sig... -- Lavallen (talk) 07:30, 26 August 2009 (UTC)
Rätt vanligt problem. Ibland händer samma sak men på Commons sida. Då kan man pröva att trycka på redigera fliken, sedan ändra edit till purge (i url fältet) och trycka enter. /Lokal_Profil 21:04, 26 August 2009 (UTC)
Försökte lösa detta genom att lägga in en purge-knapp i min monobook. Jag råkade dock glömma att jag inte var på en svensk wiki varför du gärna får radera Användare:Lavallen/monobook.js om ngn annan inte har gjort det redan. Jag har sökt efter något sätt att begära snabbradering, men jag har bara sett sådana som är avsedda för filer... -- Lavallen (talk) 06:54, 28 August 2009 (UTC)
Har nu plockat bort den. Om du går till Inställningar/Preferences sedan Gadgets sedan "Maintenance tools" så har du en "Thumbnail purger" som du kan aktivera där. Till skillnad från tillvägagångssättet jag beskrev innan är det inte alltid detta fungerar dock. /Lokal_Profil 21:54, 28 August 2009 (UTC)
Nu lagt in lite illustrationer från första bandet. Jag tror inte det är författaren till denna bok som gjort illustrationerna, varför jag inte vet exakt hur jag ska lägga upp dem. Jag har hittat identisk illustration i ett fall, jmf File:Biblia Fjellstedt I (1890) 176.jpg och File:SEC23B.gif, och liknande i ngt fall, jmf tex File:Fjellstedt Brännoffer-altaret.jpg med File:Mizbeah.jpg. -- Lavallen (talk) 13:08, 11 September 2009 (UTC)
Om ingen konstnär anges i registret, titelbladet eller i anslutning med bilden så klassas bilden nog som "av anonym konstnär" och då gäller publiseringsdatum + 70 år om jag ej missminner mig. Om du har många filer (både sidor och extraherade bilder) kan det kanske vara värt att konstruera något i stil med template:PD-Ugglan, Template:PD-Nordens Flora och Template:PD-SFJ. Dvs. en specifik mall för boken som innehåller den relevanta informationen.
P.S. för att länka till sidor på svenska wikipedia från kommons (som t.ex. Peter Fjällstedt i filbeskrivningarna) behover du bara skriva [[:sv:Artikeltitel|Den text du vill visa]]. /Lokal_Profil 15:17, 11 September 2009 (UTC)
Antalet illustrationer (och det finns ingen kredit till ngn vad jag sett ännu) är ganska begränsat, men antalet boksidor är ganska omfattande. Det rör sig om cirka 2600 sidor. Dessa skrivs av och korrekturläses på wikisource.
Skapa en mall, tja, det vore trevligt, men jag känner mig väldigt mycket nybörjade här på common, än så länge. Jag återkommer när jag får dagar med mer tid. Idag har jag fullt upp med att begripa hur allt nytt fungerar... -- Lavallen (talk) 17:46, 11 September 2009 (UTC)
Om User:Lokal Profil/Mall ser ok ut för dig så kan jag skapa en ordentlig mall av den och lägga in den (automatiserat) på de relevanta sidorna. /Lokal_Profil 14:55, 13 September 2009 (UTC)
Kör på efter mitt lilla pill nu.
Är det då tänkt att den även ska ersätta {{PD-old}} i de rena text-siddumparna? -- Lavallen (talk) 16:21, 14 September 2009 (UTC)
Jo. Antingen det eller att ta bort {{PD-old}} och ersatta raden Permission=This image is in the [[public domain]]. med Permission={{PD-Fjellstedts Bibel}}. Har ett robotkonto som borde kunna ga igenom alla sidorna pa och fixa dem. /Lokal_Profil 13:05, 17 September 2009 (UTC)
Är den boten även kapabel att snygga till de äldre varianterna av {{Information}} så att de i respektive kategori (det är tre stycken) ser homogent ut? Idag har jag http-länkar till svwp i många fall och i kategorin för band tre har jag råkat skriva band ett på flera ställen. Det enda som är någorlunda viktigt för mig, är att Defsorten bevaras för sidorna (mindre viktigt för illustrationerna), där sorteringen ska följa sidordningen. Byter du namn på filerna, så orsakar du lite strul för oss på sv:wikisource, men det går att fixa. (Era verktyg verkar inte kunna se att bilder här används i source's sidnamnrymd.)
Du har mitt stöd att köra så det ryker! -- Lavallen (talk) 14:28, 18 September 2009 (UTC)
OK. Jag har nu satt AWB på att köra igenom kategorin för del 1. Det enda jag gör nu är fixar http länkar till svwp länkar samt licensmallarna. För band tre ska jag fixa "del I->del III" också. Om det är annat du vill ha fixat efteråt så är det bara att köra igenom det hela en gång till =). Angående wikisource så håller Check Usage koll på så väl wikisource som alla andra projekt, se t.ex. [28]. /Lokal_Profil 21:00, 18 September 2009 (UTC)
Ser finfint ut!
Tja, tar du en illustration, så syns den med Check Usage, men tyvärr inte alltid en boksida som vi har lagt in i sidnamnrymden. Denna namnrymd används just för korrekturläsning. Sannolikt syns den inte för att det är en annan teknik som används för bild-infogningen på sådana sidor än de flesta andra. (Du kan tex inte klicka på en sådan bild och komma till common.)
Nåväl, det är inte hela världen, jag har svårt att se att ngn skulle få för sig att börja modda en hel kategori av sådana sidor. Titelbladet läggs nästan alltid in i index-namnrymden, och den syns med Check Usage. -- Lavallen (talk) 12:51, 19 September 2009 (UTC)
Hum, låter intressant. Kan du ge mig ett exempel på en sådan sida så jag kan ta mig en titt?/Lokal_Profil 14:31, 19 September 2009 (UTC)
En av de sist uppladdade sidorna är Sida:Biblia Fjellstedt II (1890) 104.jpg. (OCR'en för denna sida var som för många där det är frakturstil på texten, närmast värdelös.)
Indexsidan finns alla sidor i sidnamnrymden som hör till samma bok/band samlade.
I Kategori:Index alla böcker under korrekturläsning samlade.
Vissa av dem har sidor som bygger på djvu-filer, och ser det lite annorlunda ut...
Om du är inloggade i sidnamnrymden har du möjlighet att påverka statusraden för sidan, så att den kan vara grön: validerad, gul: korrekturläst, eller röd: ej korrekturläst.
De olika textsidorna i sidnamnrymden sammanfogas (transkluderas kallas det av ngn anledning) i huvudnamnrymden som wikisource kallar för textnamnrymden. Du ser ett exempel från Fjellstedts bibel i Första Boken Mose kap 1-26 som är långt ifrån färdigkorrekturläst än. -- Lavallen (talk) 17:39, 19 September 2009 (UTC)
Ok, då ser jag varför Check Usage excluderar dessa sidor. De är i stort sett samma sak som "Bild" namnrymden på sv.wiki nu när alla bilder ligger på Commons. Eftersom en sådan sida redan finns (indirekt) för vilken bild som helst som ligger på Commons så går det inte att kolla. Är det ett vanligt förekommande problem att denna typen av filer döps om utan att folk kollar om de används på source? Gillar förresten "Sida" namnrymdsfunktionen, verkar som en fungerande version av hur korrekturläsningen på Runeberg fungerade. Och med tanke på sidor som t.ex. File:Biblia Fjellstedt II (1890) 007.jpg så är det inte konstigt att OCRen misslyckas =)/Lokal_Profil 18:34, 19 September 2009 (UTC)
Aldrig hört talas om att det hänt att en bild flyttas. (Om det händer måste sidan flytta efter, annars funkar det inte.) Det är ju inte sidor som är superintressanta för användare utanför source.
Tekniken är vad jag förstått, relativt ny och det är mycket nyligen som vi passerade 2000 boksidor på svenska source. Engelska, franska och tyska är de stora, och tyska tar inte längre in ngn text som inte bygger på denna teknik.
Tömningen av svwp' fil-namnrymd var väl i full gång när jag kom dit och hade avslutats när jag började bli riktigt varm i kläderna, så att jag kunde fatta vad som skedde.
Varför inte soruce har följt efter, vet jag inte, de regler som vi har är hårdare än commons, så inget borde finnas där som inte kan läggas på common. Det ser konstigt nog, ut som att det fortfarande går att ladda upp filer på svenska source.
Men det är en helt annan fråga som kanske borde diskuteras ngn annanstans. -- Lavallen (talk) 18:59, 19 September 2009 (UTC)
Det har förresten hänt att försättsblad med text från Google-book har tagits bort, men då av ngn av oss själva samt då i en djvu-fil. I sådana fall måste flyttar göras av texten med utan redirect, och ibland lite raderande, varför jag bett och fått sysop-status på sv-source. -- Lavallen (talk) 19:04, 19 September 2009 (UTC)
Letat lite, men inte hittat ngn mer bra kategori för File:Fjellstedt Israels läger.jpg. Det är en förenklad karta över Israeliternas läger under den 40-åriga ökenvandringen. -- Lavallen (talk) 15:08, 24 September 2009 (UTC)
Jag la till Category:Exodus vilket jag tror borde passa. /Lokal_Profil 14:58, 26 September 2009 (UTC)
Fint, den kategorin hade jag missat. Det är lätt att man tänker bara på andra mosebok som Exodus, men även även tredje, fjärde och femte handlar ju om uttåget, dvs Exodus. -- Lavallen (talk) 13:20, 27 September 2009 (UTC)
Ibland kan det hjälpa att, som jag, ha dålig kolla på vilka delar av bibeln som talar om vad =) /Lokal_Profil 17:34, 27 September 2009 (UTC)

File:Blank US Map, striped.svg opacity friendly?[edit]

original
for less opaque fill styles

Any possibility of editing File:Blank US Map, striped.svg so that one can use variable opacity in the fill styles?

Currently, there's a solid backdrop then stripes overlaid. It'd be better if there were two sets of stripes, offset (translated?) to be separate. For example, if one changes ".frog" style to "fill: #459700;opacity: 0.3", ColoradO's "Solid-frog" is striped instead of solid. --Goldfndr (talk) 07:39, 23 September 2009 (UTC)

What's stopping you from changing it? ¦ Reisio (talk) 20:41, 23 September 2009 (UTC)
My normal SVG editor is either notepad.exe or sed.exe -- if there was an svg-1 userbox, it'd fit me. I'm not (yet!) confident in an ability to learn an SVG editor well enough to isolate the path and duplicate it, or to trial-and-error an appropriate transformation matrix. --Goldfndr (talk) 01:56, 24 September 2009 (UTC)
Ah, looked like you knew how to do what you wanted. ¦ Reisio (talk) 03:19, 24 September 2009 (UTC)
I've now upped File:Blank US Map, striped2.svg to be used for variable opacity fill styles. The problem with using it for completely opaque styles is (as can be seen in the preview) that white areas appear between the stripes even though there is no codewise reason for this (the stripes share exactly the same nodes). To make things more confusing the gap between them looks different in different renderers and resolutions. Once a less opaque fill style is used though this becomes significantly less noticeable (and less important). Anyhow I hope that this will be of use =) /Lokal_Profil 14:56, 26 September 2009 (UTC)

Potential featured picture?[edit]

Hi, dropping by to congratulate your fine work at File:Map of US Suffrage, 1920.svg. It's close to qualifying for the local en:wiki site standards for featured picture. The one important element it doesn't have is reference documentation. Could you supply the source or sources used for the information it represents? Full citation information (book, publisher, page number, date, etc.) and it would make a strong candidate for featured content promotion. Best regards, Durova (talk) 07:25, 12 October 2009 (UTC)

Always nice when the images are appreciated. Added some info and passed along the message to User:Kaldari who probably knows better since (s)he requested the map =) /Lokal_Profil 15:21, 12 October 2009 (UTC)

Bosnian (and other) coats of arms[edit]

Hi Lokal Profil. I originally transferred all of these from local (Bosnian/Croatian/Serbian) Wikipedias where most of them were subsequently deleted for having unclear copyright status. However, I believe that Template:PD-BiH-exempt should be applicable. Regards --20percent (talk) 23:52, 12 October 2009 (UTC)

The CoAs probably got nuked for not having a clear source and/or license .As far as PD-BiH-exempt it's not as straight forward to apply as one might think. I had a discussion with Lupo about it here and the conclusion is that a) one has to prove that it explicitly covers images such as flags and CoAs. Once this is done one has to prove that it covers sub-national coat of arms and flags. /Lokal_Profil 16:40, 14 October 2009 (UTC)
True enough, and near impossible to prove - state institutions in BiH (and neighbouring countries) generally don't care about copyright laws unless forced to do so. That includes copying from Wikimedia/Wikipedia for their own websites, by the way. Well, dunno - feel free to delete them. Best regards --20percent (talk) 17:18, 14 October 2009 (UTC)

The way I did it was by constructing an advanced Excel worksheet which (once the data is correctly formated) grouped the countries by according to their final colours and outputted the relevant code which I then just had to copypaste into the top section of the svg template map. I.e. if we take File:World map of Energy consumption 1979-1981.svg as an example and you open it in a text editor (e.g. Wordpad in Windows, don't use Word or a similarly advanced program) the only sections you need to edit are the "metadata" section (basically just to change the title and date). And the section between /*Info added by Lokal_Profil */ and /* * Sea. Everything else should be left unchanged. I can send you the excel sheet if you want to play around with it or I can create the new maps for you if you preferr that. /Lokal_Profil 20:43, 23 October 2009 (UTC)

I'll update the map in the next couple of days. As for abreviations the short answer is no since they rely on naming conventions in different languages etc. The way the excel file is set up (will send that to you once I've cleaned it up a bit) it has one column with the names and then one with the abbreviations. /20:18, 28 October 2009 (UTC)

What is the easiest way to work with a the set of countries? In an excel file? Do you use google documents? They have excel fills that you can work on collaboratively.--Jmh649 (talk) 22:19, 3 November 2009 (UTC)

Something similar to this. But I need to find a data set. One can get it by clicking on the country but that would be time consuming. http://www.diabetesatlas.org/map A finally I guess there is copyright. I would think that the world map would be in the public domain. And color coding diabetes prevalence is not I hope copyrightable.--Jmh649 (talk) 22:26, 3 November 2009 (UTC)
This data set http://www.who.int/diabetes/facts/world_figures/en/print.html show up fairly good. I do not know if the diabetesatlas is more complete. We would need a set of number to divide by thought. Any thoughts?--Jmh649 (talk) 22:26, 4 November 2009 (UTC)
http://www.un.org/esa/population/publications/wpp2000/annex-tables.pdf has population data fro 2000. Should be able to use that as our denominator. I take it that it's only the 2000 data that is of interest (not the 2030 prediction). /129.215.149.97 14:43, 5 November 2009 (UTC)
I am more interested in current numbers rather than future predictions so yes just the 2000 data.Jmh649 (talk) 18:41, 5 November 2009 (UTC)

Man you are good! Thanks again. Will post it to Wikipedia.Jmh649 (talk) 21:55, 5 November 2009 (UTC)
No worries. As to data sets, I tend to past them into Excel and then rearrange them so that the countries are in the same order as in the "map generator". That way I can just copy-paste the column with the relevant data straight into the map generator afterwards. I do use Google documents but spreadsheets is it's largest weakness, basically you have much more control in Excel. For organising data sets Google docs would work fine though./Lokal_Profil 01:51, 6 November 2009 (UTC)

Suicide rates[edit]

The WHO has a map of suicide rates in different countries with the most recent data set being collected in 2008 http://www.who.int/mental_health/prevention/suicide_rates/en/index.html

The current map would be better if changed to include a greater degree of variability in colors and without Antarctica.

Suicide rates map-en.svg

Any interest in making these improvements? ThanksJmh649 (talk) 22:26, 4 November 2009 (UTC)

Sure. Is a male-female ratio of 1-1 a valid assumption for countries in general? /129.215.149.99 14:49, 5 November 2009 (UTC)
Good question. It is not 1-1 but varies on country. Maybe it would be close enough though unless we can find the exact numbers. Look like the WHO is down today though.Jmh649 (talk) 18:49, 5 November 2009 (UTC)
Here is an article on sex ratios of different countries. [34] It is fairly close to 1 for most countries and thus should not significantly effect the statistics. Jmh649 (talk) 00:38, 6 November 2009 (UTC)
You will be able to make a separate map for women and men? This map only covers the total which is a lot less interesting than the separate figures. I guess we could take the population in 2000 * by the sex ratio than take the number of suicides and divide it by the previous number. Should be easy to do with excel right? Let me know if you need help / further data.Jmh649 (talk) 00:42, 6 November 2009 (UTC)
Done. Used the 2009 sex ratios since these were easiest to find, in theory one should use the ratios from the same year as the data from a particular country but that would be way to much work for probably no visual difference. I used the same colour scheme as I normally do but if you prefer some other then just drop a suggestion and I can easily update the maps. /Lokal_Profil 01:44, 6 November 2009 (UTC)
Hey LP Looks good. Will use the male and female with the same scale range to give graphic comparison of the suicide differences between genders.Jmh649 (talk) 02:15, 6 November 2009 (UTC)

Generation of maps[edit]

I have found a great source of data from the WHO in excel format. http://www.who.int/entity/healthinfo/statistics/bodgbddeathdalyestimates.xls Wondering how easy it would be to work with? A map of the death rate from gastroenteritis [35] or diarrhea would be excellent as this the leading cause of death in children under 5 years old world wide. I do not know how long it takes you to make a map are how many more you are interested in producing but IMO all these maps really add to the global perceptive of disease and really improve Wikipedia. Even the WHO does not provide this data in graphic form. Three tabs over they give the number of deaths per 100,000.Jmh649 (talk) 03:34, 6 November 2009 (UTC)

Other maps that are needed for article of top importance include

  • Meningitis
  • Sexually transmitted disease excluding HIV
  • Malaria

Dozens of others could be created from this data set looking at conditions from drowning and fires to neuropsychiatric disorder. It is a goldmine really. Would take some time to do them all?Jmh649 (talk) 03:47, 6 November 2009 (UTC)

Depression is currently a FA and is in need of a map.Jmh649 (talk) 04:11, 6 November 2009 (UTC)
It will take some time to hammer the document into the right shape but once that is done it should provide a goldmine of maps. I'll try to do the "Unipolar depressive disorders" first. /Lokal_Profil 21:33, 7 November 2009 (UTC)
Do you want Death rates of DALY rates? /Lokal_Profil 00:30, 8 November 2009 (UTC)
For Depression etc. DALY is probably better since direct deaths are rare. /Lokal_Profil 00:32, 8 November 2009 (UTC)
Hey LP Slowing figuring out how your excel file works. Unfortunately it is not exactly the same as the WHO excel which means I have done a bit of moving around for the TB one. I guess we could probably do them as one big bunch so for all the maps would only need to do one move. Any easier way than by hand?
You are right for the psyc topics DALYs would be best. I guess the next question is should they be age standardized. For stuff like cancer this would be important. And maybe for all other conditions too?
Just figured out how to turn rows to columns today :-) Jmh649 (talk) 02:56, 8 November 2009 (UTC)
I've done quite a lot of improvements to the Excel file since I sent it to you, would you like me to send the new one? I've got the WHO file hammered out so map generation can be started whenever the DALY/age question is resolved. I don't really know when DALY is more suitable then death (except for psyc of course) or when age standardised is important. From en:Age-standardized mortality rate I get the impression that it is always preferable over crude rates. /Lokal_Profil 03:23, 8 November 2009 (UTC)
Okay lets do age standardization for all of them. All the cancers can be done as age standardized mortality. The only ones that need to be DALY is the psyc and sense organ conditions IMO.Jmh649 (talk) 03:31, 8 November 2009 (UTC)
Ok, will convert the age std tables tomorrow and then massupload the generated maps. /Lokal_Profil 03:41, 8 November 2009 (UTC)
By the way if you need any help let me know. You definately have a better grasp of how to put these maps together but it would be nice to generate all 160 maps out of this data which I assume is a lot of work. The maps comparing large categories of conditions are also of interest. Like looking at infectious disease death in different areas of the world gives you a shocking image of the forgotten continent of Africa. Adds a significant global picture to medicine which unfortunately often centers around baldness and other disease of the west :-) Jmh649 (talk) 03:48, 8 November 2009 (UTC)

(unindent) Should go quite quickly to do the maps. The main time consumption now will simply be down to finding a suitable set of ranges (which is a lot faster then before at least). One thing I've been wondering about though is the official name of the WHO document. It seems to be an update to "World Health Report 2004" but an exact name would be good for the source section. /Lokal_Profil 16:38, 8 November 2009 (UTC)

Questions about excel file[edit]

Okay entered my first set of data. Now setting the range. It only gives room for one value. Does this mean it starts at the minimum and goes too the value set in the box?Jmh649 (talk) 03:13, 8 November 2009 (UTC)

Starts at the value in the box and goes to the next (higher) value. If you scroll right to the legends they show exactly what is in which range. /Lokal_Profil 03:25, 8 November 2009 (UTC)
I'm still having trouble distinguishing empty cells from 0 valued cells. This is why the lowest range setting is non-zero. /Lokal_Profil 03:29, 8 November 2009 (UTC)
Ah yes I see. If you could send me an updated copy that would be great. I have uploaded it to google documents so that groups can edit it in their cloud application.Jmh649 (talk) 03:33, 8 November 2009 (UTC)

(undent) btw should we be coloring Greenland the same as Denmark? They are the same country.Jmh649 (talk) 04:28, 8 November 2009 (UTC)

It's not only Greenland, just that it's big enough to spot. By default British overseas territories, (British) Crown dependencies, Kingdom of the Netherlands, Overseas collectivities of France, USA insular areas and Kingdom of Denmark (you can see the details under the section about former countries) are not bunched up with their parent countries. This is because data gathered most often doesn't take these areas into account or gives them separately.
For the WHO data it might be worth colouring them though, can turn that on easily enough if you want. /Lokal_Profil 12:34, 8 November 2009 (UTC)
We in Canada have the WP:Northwest Territories which is about the size of Greenland. People speak a different language. Live in very different conditions and have very different life expectancy / disease rate. Yet the number of people are so small the area is not separated out on WHO maps. I think the same logic can be applied to Greenland.Jmh649 (talk) 13:49, 8 November 2009 (UTC)
The difference is more related to how self governing they are. But still I agree that territories/dependencies should probably be coloured for the WHO data. /Lokal_Profil 16:31, 8 November 2009 (UTC)

Updated and expanded data[edit]

Hey LP Added most of the maps. Found some updated WHO data. From 2004 published in 2006. Should we continue on from here? http://www.who.int/healthinfo/global_burden_disease/estimates_regional/en/index.html Jmh649 (talk) 21:58, 11 November 2009 (UTC)

Here is the individual country data. http://www.who.int/healthinfo/global_burden_disease/estimates_country/en/index.html Jmh649 (talk) 22:01, 11 November 2009 (UTC)
The data here will allow us to do injuries by gender. Will show nicely I am sure just how much more often males get themselves killed.Jmh649 (talk) 22:03, 11 November 2009 (UTC)
2009 data set just out. Looks like they are still adding some of it to the site. http://www.who.int/whosis/whostat/EN_WHS09_Tables.xls Jmh649 (talk) 22:27, 11 November 2009 (UTC)
YES, but NO but yes, but no... really ambivalent about this. Never data is good but the 2002 is halfway done... the obsessive compulsive part of me cannot leave it half done... There are currently 62-65 maps missing in the 2002 set and 61 done... will there be any need of the 2002 maps once the 2004 ones are done? At least the 2004 should go quicker since I can probably reuse the ranges from 2002 (deciding the range is what takes ~75% of the time for each map). I took a quick peak at the 2009 data and it looks as though it might only be relevant for a few diseases, although there is a lot of data there which isn't at all available in the 2004/2002 data sets.
As an aside did you say you preferred the cancer maps as death rates rather then DALY rates or both or DALY only?
As a second aside. As mentioned above I do have a Google docs account. The reason I haven't upped the "generator" there is that it tends to manhandle the files and change them. Even if you upload an excel file to Google docs then export it to xls and then open it in excel it doesn't look the same any more. Working on the WHO2002 data has made me do a lot of minor (and major) changes to the generator. Once the frequency of these changes goes down I'll send you an updated version. /Lokal_Profil 00:57, 12 November 2009 (UTC)
Age adjusted death rates for the cancer mortality I think would be best to start with. Will want the 2004 data eventually. They warn however that comparison will not be that accurate. It depends on how much work it will be for you. If we do the 2004 set we can come back and finish the 2002?Jmh649 (talk) 01:39, 12 November 2009 (UTC)

Gender and mental illness / cancer[edit]

Both rates of cancer and mental illness vary significantly with gender. We will be able to create maps of both sexes. This will give an extra nuance. :-) Jmh649 (talk) 02:23, 12 November 2009 (UTC)

I'll attack the "all persons" 2004 data set first and leave the gender specific one for later. Alternatively this is one you could work on if you want some coaching. /Lokal_Profil 00:00, 13 November 2009 (UTC)
Regarding the practice map above. You'll need to rearrange the WHO data so that the countries come in the same order as in the Excel file (e.g. Korea, republic of vs. Republic of Korea changes the order). This includes having empty rows for countries not included in the WHO data (e.g. Lichtenstein). Also don't forget that the data talks about "Serbia and Montenegro" which means Montenegro and Serbia are both blank and the data goes in the "former countries" section. /Lokal_Profil 15:42, 13 November 2009 (UTC)

2004 set[edit]

Hey LP have all the 2002 set up that have been created. Will add the 2004 set as you create them. Cheers. Jmh649 (talk) 21:08, 12 November 2009 (UTC)

I've uploaded the first four 2004 maps to User:Lokal Profil/WHO2004. I started with the ones that are defined differently from the 2002 data set (otherwise I'll forget them). I'll probably go on from Cardiovascular through to War and then do the Cancers (death rate) and Other Neoplasms (death rate?). Once these are done I'll do the ones for which there are already 2002 maps.
BTW most of the maps are currently missing theme-specific categories. Since this relies on knowledge about disease categorisation/naming I was wondering if you could take a look at it. Might also be that you know of an Commons active Health/Medicine project which knows what goes what and if any categories should be created. /Lokal_Profil 00:09, 13 November 2009 (UTC)

1536 års översättningar[edit]

Hejsan!

Jag har bett om hjälp på Bybrunnen, men responsen verkar låta vänta på sig. Jag skulle behöva något liknande {{PD-Sweden-photo}} som hänvisar till att filerna är: photographic pictures och att bilderna därför är fria.

Det rör sig om tre band med faksimiler av en bibel som gavs ut som ett provisorium 1536 under utvecklingen av Gustav Vasas bibel. Det var alltså ett slags provtryck som gjordes av fyra bibelböcker och inte en komplett bibel. Jag hämtar materialet i böcker som gavs ut 1956-60. (Vissa sidor, med redaktionell text, i böckerna är inte fria.)

I mallen ovan finns dessutom en länk till svenska wikisource. Den är dock inaktuell eftersom vi inte kan ha gällande lagar ligggande. Vi har inte kunskap och tid till att uppdatera dem. Detta har tidigare diskuterats flitigt på flera platser. Hittar du ngn annan länk, vore det fint...

The problem is that the second map isn't any good. The first map has every country separated and encoded for easy colouring. The one you've pointed to is only one big polyhedron making no difference between the countries. If you find a public domain tool similar to http://gsl-nagoya-u.net/appendix/software/worldmap/ that can change the projection then I'll try making a new map. /Lokal_Profil 22:20, 20 December 2009 (UTC)
In PNG projection the borders are there. I tried to figure out that toll, sorry, no good. Thank you though. Kintetsubuffalo (talk) 11:28, 21 December 2009 (UTC)
Should probably have been clearer. Yes the borders are there in the svg map as well. The problem is that the countries haven't been separated out. To give an analogy it's like a puzzle where each country is a piece but all of the pieces have been put together and then glued to the board underneath. To make it useful one needs to break away each puzzle piece and then put the name of the country on the back of it. And that is just to much manual work. /Lokal_Profil 21:20, 11 January 2010 (UTC)

Jag börjar bli lite smått trött på att det är den gamla versionen av File:Biblia Fjellstedt II (1890) 127.jpg som är synlig hos Wikisource, trots att det är två veckor sedan jag uppdaterade filen här. Kan du testa att radera den gamla versionen så ser vi vad som händer? -- Lavallen (talk) 12:05, 25 January 2010 (UTC)

Nar jag tittar pa bildsidan pa Wikisource sa ser bilden ok ut. Har du forsokt att rensa din cache? Kan du ge en lank till sidan pa source dar bilden syns? /Lokal_Profil 21:13, 30 January 2010 (UTC)

Konstigt. Antgligen ar det bara en cahcad version som ger problem. Om du hogerklickar pa bilden pa s:sv:Sida:Biblia Fjellstedt II (1890) 127.jpg och kopierar bildlanken (dvs. lanken till bilden inte bildsidan) och klistrar in har sa tar jag mig en titt. /Lokal_Profil 13:29, 3 February 2010 (UTC)

Couple of questions[edit]

I have a couple of questions regarding File:BlankMap-World6.svg (mainly out of curiosity). Why is Antarctica colored differently than the rest of the continents? Is this due to no population being there? But my main question has to do with the border colors. Why are they the same color as the ocean? Wouldn't it be easier to make them black? It would especially help out for the countries and islands which are too small to be made out if the borders remain white. —NuclearVacuum 18:49, 4 February 2010 (UTC)

Sorry for the delay. I think Antarctica is coloured different for historical reasons. That is it used to be a separate path defined outside the block of the nations and without an ISO id. As to the border colours I think it's for a) aesthetic reasons (yes it makes islands clearer but makes small countries less clear) but also b) historical reasons: the borders didn't use to match up exactly (might be that they still don't). With black borders this becomes really obvious (no overlap between borders/to much overlap/partial overlap/lines which appear thicker at certain resolutions etc.) whereas with background coloured borders there is a larger margin for errors. /Lokal_Profil 18:26, 1 March 2010 (UTC)

Stockholms vapen[edit]

Eftersom du var med i disussionen på Commons:Deletion requests/File:Stockholm vapen bra.svg ville jag göra dig uppmärksam på följande (du har kanske redan märkt det)

File:Stockholm vapen bra.svg

Commons:Deletion requests/File:Stockholm vapen bra.svg

Commons:Undeletion requests/Archive/2009-07#File:Stockholm vapen bra.svg

Jag tycker det är märkligt med förfarandet, att en bild raderas efter diskussion och sedan återställs efter en annan diskussion som om inget hänt utan att de som deltog i den ursprungliga diskussionen har yttrat sig.

Är osäker på om argumenten mot har lösts, även om jag visserligen tycker att de nya bilderna ser tillräckligt annorlunda ut.

Fred J (talk) 13:35, 1 March 2010 (UTC)

Jo jag minns den roriga historien aven om jag missat att filen hade aterstallts. Det var ett problematiskt eftersom det inte handlade om en direkt kopia utan snarare om att "gora sin egen bild sa lik den skyddade som mojligt utan att den faktiskt var samma". I mina ogon ar det fortfarande ett harlett verk men jag orkar inte kabbla om det mer. Dessutom har jag ett bestammt minne av att originalet (mojligen under ett annat filnamn) var mycket mer likt och att den nuvarande versionen ur den vinkeln ar en forbattring. Men men...
Appro pa de senaste meddelandena till din diskussionssida sa rensade jag upp bland gammla svenska vapenskoldar utan licens och det var da jag stotte pa de tva. Upplands-bro ar problematisk da det ror sig om konturerna en gammal (fri) skulptur. Sa hurvida den ar skyddad beror pa hur mycket originell tolkining som ar involverad. Det basta hade varit att fa tag pa en egen bild av statyn och tagit konturerna fran den men det ar ju sallan enkelt. /Lokal_Profil 18:20, 1 March 2010 (UTC)
Ja okej, jag ser att problemet i så fall finns med File:Upplands-Bro City Arms.svg eftersom den är baserad på jpg bilden. Men den är troligen okej. Jpg bilden är dålig och uppenbart inscannad/avfotograferad så jag tycker det är bäst om den försvinner. Men svg bilden ser ut som orginalet (http://web.telia.com/~u85829822/spelman/kommunvapen.htm). Det finns inte hur många sätt som helst att rita av statyn. Jag la till en länk på svg-bilden beskrivningssida.

Jag tycker det är naturligt att felaktiga upphovsrättsraderingar rättas till. Och detta var en felaktig sådan...
Dock; jag vet inte om användarsidan hos en tredje person det är lämpligaste stället att diskutera en bild som jag är upphovsmannen till. Jag föreslår därför att frågor om bilden tas på min användarsida istället. Koyos (talk) 15:58, 2 March 2010 (UTC)
Huruvida upphovsrättsraderingen var felaktig eller inte är oklart eftersom den första diskussionen bestämde radera och den andra inte. Det diskussionen här gäller är att det är opassande att undelete-diskussioner förs utan att de som deltagit i delete-diskussionen informeras, speciellt då den som nominerat bilden. Att diskutera bilden hår verkade ju fungera eftersom vi alla har denna sidan bevakade, hade diskussionen utvecklats till att mer specifikt handla om bilden så skulle jag rekommendera att diskutera den på bildens diskussionssida ;). /Lokal_Profil 14:05, 6 March 2010 (UTC)

File:Canada 1957 Federal Election.svg[edit]

Hi, could you modify the above image to take care of the following:

  • Totals at top: PC under Diefenbaker 112, Liberal under St. Laurent 105, Other 4 (Social Credit and CCF remain the same)
  • Northwest Territories: Deep red, 60 plus percent
  • Yukon: Light red (40-50)
  • Ontario: Liberal should read 21. "OTH" should be omitted.
  • Quebec: PC should read 9. "OTH" should read 4.

This is due to a couple of errors and a couple of candidates who ran without approval from central office but who immediately caucused with their parties and their vote totals are counted that way in most references.

Many thanks for your help.--Wehwalt (talk) 13:39, 5 March 2010 (UTC)

Done. Thanks for passing on the info =) /Lokal_Profil 13:59, 6 March 2010 (UTC)
No problem. I'm gunning to get that article to FA and have all the references. Thanks for your help.--Wehwalt (talk) 16:14, 6 March 2010 (UTC)

Note: As a reader/reviewer of the 1957 election article, I have a few problems with the map as it now appears in the article:-

  • It is quite difficult to read the figures when they are superimposed on the darker colours. Would it be possible, in these instances, to include the figures within a white strip or box?
  • It's also hard to understand exactly what the colours are representing. I found the key, top right, difficult to fathom.
  • Would it be possible to label the provinces or territories? Many readers will be unfamiliar with Canadian political geography.

Brianboulton (talk) 11:03, 13 March 2010 (UTC)

To join in Brian's request, can a key be added in the space below the 49th parallel listing the postal abbreviations and the province names? I think that is all that is needed now, many thanks for your work.--Wehwalt (talk) 19:09, 14 March 2010 (UTC)
  • I corrected the dark text on dark background, this was a left over from the correction Wehwalt told me about.
  • As for the colours they represent <40, 40-50, 50-60 >60 %. I think it's quite clear and I'm not entirely sure how to improve it.
  • As for territory lables the map areas are labled by postal (?) abreviations. It should be possible to add a key to these in the bottom left corner. Alternatively a legend can be added to the image (on the page where it is used) linking to Canadian_federal_election,_1957#Results_by_province. The second would be a lot easier (and easily done for all of the maps) but I'll take a look at whether the first is possible as well.
Any feedback on this or other issues is welcome. / Lokal_Profil 00:15, 16 March 2010 (UTC)
Thank you for your time on this. All this is, is a summary of the return table by province, but if a user feels strongly it is important, well, so be it. Hope you can help.--Wehwalt (talk) 21:13, 17 March 2010 (UTC)
A suggested version has been uploaded to File:Test.svg. I prefer the original though. Still think the link to the table as a caption would be best since, as you pointed out, it's mainly a quick visual summary of that section. /Lokal_Profil 00:17, 26 March 2010 (UTC)

Swallowtails[edit]

Well, as of now, there is no place for swallow-tailed pennants, however I could create one for them, within the Pennants category. I just removed them, from the Swallow-tailed Flags category as a pennant isn't a flag by definition. I was actually planning on further categorizing the swallow-tailed flags by nations with a great many of them. I'll have that done later though. Fry1989 (talk) 19:14, 11 April 2010 (UTC)

Lakes on File:BlankMap-World6.svg[edit]

I am curious on how you can get the lakes to be part of the nation, yet act as if nothing is there. I have been trying to figure this out for a while now, but I can't get it right. Can you help me out a little? --NuclearVacuum (talk) 16:01, 17 April 2010 (UTC)

Not sure I understand exactly how you mean. Do you just want the lake to be grouped with the nation but not coloured or do you want them to be actual holes in the landmass? /Lokal_Profil 17:19, 17 April 2010 (UTC)
Sorry for the confusion, I can't even explain it either. Let me try it this way. How did you get the lakes of Canada and Russia to be the way they are right now? From what I can see, they appear to be holes in the landmass. --NuclearVacuum (talk) 18:34, 17 April 2010 (UTC)
Aha. The way they are done you combine the two paths (lake and landmass) into one path. Then you set the style "fill-rule:evenodd". This means that the outermost shape is filled and the innermost isn't. If there was an island on the lake and you combined it's path with the landmass-lake path then the evenodd fill-rule would make landmass and island filled but lake unfilled. /Lokal_Profil 09:47, 18 April 2010 (UTC)

...and also, the deleted file was simply removed from articles, instead of being replaced by file:Vestfold våpen.svg. I seem to remember that Commonsdelinker can't replace png with svg, but if more of those old png weapons will be deleted it would be easier to replace them (manually) first, instead of having to backtrack Comdelinks actions like I'm now doing...

Chagas disease[edit]

Lokal Profil,

I wonder whether you would consider looking at en:Talk:Chagas_disease#Epidemiology. It appears that new numbers are available for the Chagas DALY map, at File:Chagas disease world map - DALY - WHO2002.svg.

en:Chagas disease is being reviewed by an outside medical expert, through a pilot program that will ultimately increase high-quality, free medical information at the Swahili, Spanish, and Arabic language Wikipedias, by providing expert translations of these articles. Naturally, WikiProject Medicine would like to have these articles in the best possible shape before the translations begin. Please consider helping us by updating this image.

Don't immediately recognise it.

Botgöra?[edit]

Kan du föreställa dig att det finns botar som klarar den här typen av ändringar i en kategori? ~- Jag äger själv en AWB-bot, även om den inte har flagga här, men jag vet inte hur jag skulle kunna fixa ngt dyligt... -- Lavallen (talk) 18:56, 9 June 2010 (UTC)

Min AWB bot borde kunna göra det. Behöver bara kolla upp lite om regular expressions. Men borde den inte ersätta texten med {{subst:Fjellstedt-I-BookNaviBar|001|003}} så att det blir en BookNaviBar och en vanlig Information mall? /Lokal_Profil 23:20, 10 June 2010 (UTC)
Det är ett alternativ, jag kopierade lite kod från en tysk bok och hittade det här upplägget. I det fallet fanns information-mallen inbyggd i den lokala booknavbaren. - Som det är nu, så har bara de två första sidorna i volymen den här mallen, så det går lika bra att backa de redigeringarna och plocka bort information-delen från "min" mall. - Gör vi så, så blir även parameter 3 överflödig. -- Har haft tankar på att lägga in ytterligare en parameter för att kunna hantera de övriga banden. Men det kan vänta, det dröjer innan jag är färdig med de banden. - Jag kör lånsammare nu när jag har ett OCR-program som klarar fraktur, så jag hinner ifatt de usla OCR-sidorna jag redan lagt in. -- Lavallen (talk) 04:50, 11 June 2010 (UTC)
Koden behovs inte plockas bort. Genom at "subst":a mallen sa laggs en BookNaviBar och en vanlig Information mall till. Dvs. {{Fjellstedt-I-BookNaviBar}} blir ett valdigt bekvamt verktyg for att skapa sidorna men nar de val ar fardiga kan man redigera dem som vanligt. Vad jag kommer gora ar att lagga in mallen osubstad. Pa sa satt har du mojlighet att gora forandringar i mallen ett tag till (med resultatet att alla sidorna automatiskt uppdateras). nar du ar nojd/fardig sa ar det bara att hojta till igen sa kan jag kora botten over alla sidorna och substa =). Detta kan t.ex. goras nar vart ban ar fardigt. Har kommit pa hur jag enklast kan gora ersattnignen med AWB. For att gora detta ar det enklast om jag kan baka in kategoriseringen i mallen. Ar detta ok med dig? /Lokal_Profil 11:31, 14 June 2010 (UTC)
Det är helt ok att baka in kategoriseringen också. De förändringar i mallen jag funderar på gäller att göra den mer generell så den klarar även band 2 och 3. - Vilket vi inte behöver bekymra oss om för just denna kategori. Man kan ersätta "band I" med "band {{{band|I}}}" på några ställen i mallen så har det ingen betydelse för band I's kategori. Det finns några faksimiler där parameter "other_versions" är ifylld, jag har gjort plats för det i parameterplats 3. Sådana finns bara i band 1, än så länge. -- Lavallen (talk) 13:38, 14 June 2010 (UTC)
Och de medlemmar i kategorin som innehåller illustrationer behöver du inte åtgärda, de behöver ingen booknavbar, bara boksidorna. -- Lavallen (talk) 13:40, 14 June 2010 (UTC)
Har andrat om sa att parameter 3 nu ar "band" och parameter 4 (valbar) ar "other_versions". Ska forsoka fa tid att satta igang botten i veckan. Har aven designat metoden sa att du latt kan anvanda samma metod nar du laddar upp band 2 etc. Se exemplet pa User talk:Lokal Profil/Proxymall (obs fungerar inte for forsta och sista sidan). /Lokal_Profil 14:56, 16 June 2010 (UTC)

Får man vara nyfiken på att fråga vilka funktioner i AWB du använde? - Jag tycker jag gör avancerade mallbyten ibland med hjälp av vad du kallar proxymallar, men jag inser inte hur man fixar så indexeringen: 007, 008, 009,... etc blir rätt överallt här... - Lavallen (talk) 15:03, 19 June 2010 (UTC)
Det sker i två steg. Det första var att proxymallen sjalv omvandlade t.ex. 2 eller 002 till 001, 002, 003 sa som behovdes for de olika falten i mallen. Detta gjordes genom de i wiki inbyggda "pad" och "expr". I AWB hade jag turen att du redan hade numrerat bilderna i kategoriseringen (dvs. det stog langst nere Category:Fjellstedts bibel....|#002). Det var denna 002:a som jag skickade till proxymallen. For att identifiera denna med AWB anvande jag delvis regular expressions. Dvs. jag ersatte forsta delen av texten (fram till other_versions) med {{subst:User:Lokal_Profil/Proxy... Ersatte sedan texten fram till nummret med resten av proxymallen och till slut (anvandande regualr expressions) "$002]]" med "1=002}}". Med forbehall for diverse variationer sa var ersattnignarna i stort sett de foljande (den tredje med regular expressions forkryssad)
{{Information
|Description=Scannad bild av [[:sv:Peter Fjellstedts bibel|Peter Fjellstedts bibel]] med kommentarer uppl 1890 del I

Det fungerade relativt enkelt eftersom du varit valdigt uniform nar du laddat upp filerna (bara 3-4 olika variationer av texten), samt att du redan numrerat bilderna. Om du inte redan numbrerat dem sa antar jag att man kanske skulle kunna komma at numren via delar av PAGENAME men som tur var behovde jag inte ge mig pa detta. Hade jag lart mig regular expressions tidigare sa hade jag nog dessutom kunnat gora de tva forsta ersattnignarna enklare samt darmed undvikit de nu nodvandiga variationerna p.g.a. extra mellanslag, blanka linjer eller "Scanned by". Hoppas det hjalper =) /Lokal_Profil 11:51, 20 June 2010 (UTC)

Help to categorize[edit]

Hi mate, I need help to categorize a figure that I don't know the name in English. In Spanish is a "traba" and in Catalan, "trava". It's an object that don't let something to move. You can see it at the bottom of this COA: File:Escudo de Torredonjimeno.svg in red colour or at the top on this: File:Escut de Castell de Castells.svg on black color. Here in the first part: File:Escudo de Narón.svg, here at the bottom File:Escudo de Higuera de Calatrava.svg, File:Escudo de Abenójar.svg on black color. Thank you! --Xavigivax (talk) 14:24, 15 June 2010 (UTC)

Would you use it to stop a horse from moving? If so it would be a "hobble". But if it's something that you can use more generically, say to stop a door moving or even anything then I'm afraid I don't know the translation. Also it's not impossible that there is no literal translation for it. Do you know if it's used in heraldry outside of Spain? Until then just create the category Category:Traba in heraldry and it can be renamed later if we find a good translation. /Lokal_Profil 14:37, 16 June 2010 (UTC)

In the meantime I've however been in contact with Zscout370 regarding the isssue, especially that of the Singapore arms (for which I now believe the situation has been resolved). As for the Kenya and Senegal arms I put my thoughts on these type of edits on my user page. These two have been reverted and I'd recommend both of you to discuss any future updates on the discussion pages.
As for the Spanish. It's fine to write to me in Spanish but since my spelling is horrible I'll reply in English (the same goes for messages in Portuguese). =)
That said I notice that you haven't correctly sourced your images. E.g. the Kenya arms contains the Rooster which can be seen in File:Blason_ville_fr_Gagnac-sur-Garonne_(Haute-Garonne).svg. Since this image is released GFDL/CC-BY-SA license you are required to attribute the creator when you use the image in a different place. Not doing so violates the copyright of the original image.

Por cierto, el escudo File:Coat of arms of Senegal.svg tiene una versión derivada del león que tu utilizas, tiene la cabeza rediseñada y el número correcto de garras en las patas. En ese caso también está retocado para que sea menos ancho y más largo que el original, para ocupar más espacio en el escudo. ¡Saludos! --Xavigivax (talk) 19:38, 13 August 2010 (UTC)

File:Coat of arms of Kenya.svg[edit]

Please revert back to my corrections. The shield of the Arms of Kenya reflect the national flag, therefore the firmbriations should be white, not grey. There was no "edit war" as you put it, the problem was Xavigivax being a user who refused to let me correct/improve his files, against common practice here. Fry1989 (talk) 22:51, 6 August 2010 (UTC)

In heraldry silver (argent in the blazon) can either be represented as grey or white. Both representations would be equally correct. /Lokal_Profil 23:56, 6 August 2010 (UTC)

Further evidence I'm right, according to site of Kenyan Embassy in Paris, shield uses colours from National Flag. At the Kenyan Embassy in Stockholm, banner appears to be darker, and word Harembee doesn't have a black border. These are the changes I wish to implement. Please remove the block against me editing the file. http://www.kenyaembassyparis.org/about-kenya/national-symbols and http://kenyaembassystockholm.com/index.php?option=com_content&task=view&id=18&Itemid=33 Fry1989 (talk) 00:55, 7 August 2010 (UTC)

I think you are misunderstanding the situation. If a coat of arms is defined by a blazon (textual description) then it is this description (only) which is relevant. Any images, done by the government in question or otherwise, are nothing but interpretations of the blazon and as such say nothing about what is the right or wrong way of drawing them. Further more since these image (e.g. on the embassy web pages) are copyrighted any attempt to make (the copyright free) interpretation of the blazon more like them would mean turning it (the free version) into a derived version of them and thus make it a copyright violation. I've summarised some of these points on my user page. /Lokal_Profil 09:37, 12 August 2010 (UTC)
And how exactly, would changing the colours of the shield to make them the same as the National flag(as the GOVERNMENT OF KENYA states) make it a copyright violation, when the Arms are already considered free enough to be on the Commons? Fry1989 (talk) 22:48, 12 August 2010 (UTC)

File:Self-inflicted injuries world map - Death - WHO2004.svg[edit]

Hi Lokal Profil,

At least one assumption you made for this map is probably wrong. Figures for the Netherlands most likely don't include the Netherlands Antilles and Aruba. These areas have such a high degree of autonomy that domestic issues are always managed locally. The only thing they don't have are an army and a foreign policy. For this reason, they are referred to as 'countries within the Kingdom'. The same will go, I reckon, for Greenland and the Faroe islands, but as I'm not as well acquainted with Danish politics as I am with Dutch politics, I'm less sure of that. 145.97.197.62 10:22, 19 August 2010 (UTC)

The data is assumed to included the Netherlands Antilles and Aruba since the UN didn't give separate data for these whilst still normally grouping them as one (even if the UN might be one of the few entities which does so). For this particular reason I've always mentioned these groupings, and other assumptions, on the image page (just below the legends). In the end though it doesn't make much difference. The small population of Aruba and the Netherlands Antilles means that the value for the Netherlands is hardly affected whilst the generation settings used is such that Aruba and the Netherlands Antilles will hardly be visible on the map (they are not given their own circles for the very reason that they have been bunched up as the Kingdom of the Netherlands). /Lokal_Profil 10:20, 20 August 2010 (UTC)

Remarks about national CoA[edit]

Since I currently don't have the time or energy to actively monitor all of the goings on with the problems surrounding Coat of arms of Kenya.svg, Coat of arms of Singapore (blazon).svg and probably some other CoA's, I'll just put my last remarks/thoughts here. These are in addition to the remarks on my user page.

There is a basic difference between CoA's and logos/flags with construction sheets. The embassy web page does say that the CoA contains the Flag colours but this says nothing about which shade of colours are used. A blazon can only specify the colour as red/gules, green/vert, black/sable not as specific Panetone shades or similar. Also since white doesn't exist as a colour in (traditional) heraldry a blazon will always use silver/argent instead (just as yellow gets replaced by gold/or).

When the drawing is made by the artist it's up to him/her to decide what shades of these colours to use and whether to represent gold/silver as yellow/white or gold(orangy yellow)/silver(grey). The same situation applies to the black lines between the different colours. Depending on which heraldic school you follow you'll either separate fields by black lines (Xavigivax's version) or not (Fry1989's version) either is valid and there is no reason why the latter versions should replace the first.

The important thing in the end is that it's the blazon which defines the CoA (whatever comments the embassy web pages etc. might have). Even if there happens to be a construction sheet for the CoA (as seems to be the case for Ukraine, Kazakhstan and Andorra) the blazon would still be the only relevant information for creating a free Commons image. Why? Because of copyright.

It's only the "independent interpretation of the blazon" which makes the loophole which allows the Commons versions not be derivatives of the official (official is a slightly misleading word but it's the best I can think of) drawing of the CoA. If you aim to make your image look like the official version then you've not made an independent interpretation. If you instead start from a construction sheet then then you will always reproduce the same image, within minor variations, and this will be the copyrighted official drawing of the coat of arms. Basically if you have a construction sheet for your CoA then it's just a shield shaped logo. Are countries allowed to do this and not use a blazon at all... of course they are, it just means that we cannot create a free version of it. Just like we can't produce a free version of the Internet Explorer logo. We could still produce images which remind us of the logo but unlike blazon interpretations these would not be considered valid versions of the image. /Lokal_Profil 12:39, 4 September 2010 (UTC)

Short comment. I've here interpreted construction sheet as meaning something like Flag of Australia template.svg rather then, say, a clear text version of a blazon. /Lokal_Profil 12:50, 4 September 2010 (UTC)
About the short comment, yes that is what I mean for a construction sheet. http://search.ligazakon.ua/l_doc2.nsf/link1/T213700.html is one that is available for a public domain coat of arms. I see what you are getting at with the whole design/concept idea. User:Zscout370 (Return fire) 19:14, 4 September 2010 (UTC)
But as for Kazakhstan and the Ukraine, their symbols are public domain due to their copyright laws. That is another thing I am keeping an eye on. User:Zscout370 (Return fire) 19:15, 4 September 2010 (UTC)
If the symol is PD then the situation becomes different since there is no longer a need for a free interpretation (although one might still be interesting for other reasons). In this case the official version can be uploaded or simply (manually) traced into a vector format if needed. /Lokal_Profil 00:36, 7 September 2010 (UTC)
Lokal Profil explain another time the difference between a logo and a Coat of Arms and how to interpret the tinctures (colours), but you both don't want to listen us and do changes like the last of File:Coat of arms of Kenya.svg. --Xavigivax (talk) 11:10, 23 September 2010 (UTC)

File:Solna vapen.svg[edit]

Hi mate! I don't understand this: I blått fält en sol av guld., I supose that the translation is "(blått)Azure, a (sol)sun (guld)or". The questions is... if the blazon says only this, the sun would be figured (with face) and with 8 straight rays and 8 wavy rays. Could you confirme this, please? Almost in English, French and Spanish heraldry, the sun follow this rule. In other case, when the sun is not figured or has more or less rays, must be informed. These are three different references in English [46], French [47] and Spanish [48] or [49]. In Spain, there is a municipality with the same COA: File:Escut d'Andratx.svg Best regards! --Xavigivax (talk) 11:26, 23 September 2010 (UTC)

Yes the blazon just says "In field of blue a sun of gold". In Swedish heraldry a sun with a face would be blazoned as "bildad sol". However if it just says "sol" then this can be represented as either having a face or not (both have been used by the municipality[50][51]). As for the 8 straight, 8 wavy I didn't think they were standard in Swedish heraldry but after som browsing I'm now less convinced. Will look it up and then return on the matter. /Lokal_Profil 22:23, 28 September 2010 (UTC)
In all the images that you show me in this links, the rays are alternated straight and wavy. The straight rays are the vertical, horizontal and diagonals, the others ones are wavy. I don't see a reason why in the Swedish heraldry the way to represent a sun is different from the rest of European countries. The first link is not an official site, the second seems to be the municipality official's web, and all the suns have face. May be, you could interest this discussion in French: [52] about "Soleil brûlant". Thank you for your interest. Best regards. --Xavigivax (talk) 06:45, 29 September 2010 (UTC)
The links above were all to official or formerly official represenations, for another official represenattion see the sun in [53], so whether a sun has a face or not is optional (unless the blazon specifies it thorough "bildad sol"). As for the rays I'm still awaiting an answer from the Nordic heraldry forum and if they say 8 straight, 8 wavy is the standard here as well then I'll update this and the other swedish CoAs containing a sun. The reason I'm not yet convinced is that almost all Swedish CoA's I'll find online which contain a sun will have been made by two (or possibly three) artists, thus it's hard to say if it's their preference or a standard. /Lokal_Profil 18:13, 17 October 2010 (UTC)

Underligheter med enkla schackdiagram[edit]

Hej. Jag har en fråga som förmodligen bäst ställs till en lite mer än genomsnittet bevandrad wiki-användare. Känner igen dig som admin även på sv:wp (där jag är mest aktiv) och vänder mig därför till dig. Häromdagen laddade jag upp två grafiska bilder till Commons, vilka i all enkelhet belyser begreppen "rad" respektive "linje" i schackspelets värld. Normalt sett gör sig grafiska presentationer av schackställningar och -bräden bäst och enklast med hjälp av de mallar som finns specifikt för ändamålet; sådana finns som du säkert sett både på svenska, engelska, och andra Wikipedia-sajter. Problemet här var att jag behövde bilderna för att förtydliga dessa schacktermer på svenska Wiktionary. Där kan det i sällsynta fall vara enklare och bättre att använda grafiska element, istället för att behöva tynga den annars oftast sparsmakade ordbokstexten med en ganska lång beskrivning av dessa båda schacktermer, som – åtminstone för icke schackkunniga läsare – annars gärna låter sig förväxlas med varandra. Men på Wiktionary finns inga mallar för schacknotation, så då fick det bli två PNG-bilder istället – och det rör sig som sagt om mycket enkel grafik. Med bilden för rad har inget besynnerligt inträffat, men bilden för linje har lyckats nästla sig in på ett flertal andra wikier/wikisidor, och då på platser den rimligen inte hör hemma. Det här beror förmodligen (?) på att jag valde att döpa filerna till rank.png och file.png, alltså efter de engelska schacktermerna för "rad" respektive "linje". Och "file" betyder ju lite av varje såhär i datorsammanhang… Titta gärna under rubriken "Global filanvändning" på sidan för linje, och då kanske främst de länkar där som rör litauiska respektive ido WP. Filnamnet file.png tycks (bland annat) användas i en del av deras mallar: visst kan jag en del om sådana, men samman med mina bristande kunskaper i litauiska vill jag inte gräva gräva i koden... :-p Och vad gäller ido har jag skrivit väldigt lite i deras Wiktionary, men kan knappast påstå att jag är någon hejare på språket.

Måhända har jag helt missförstått det hela, och kanske finns här inget problem – men jag tycker det ser underligt ut, och ber därför om hjälp, hellre än att låta det eventuella problemet leva kvar, obemärkt. –Tommy Kronkvist (talk), 01:40, 23 November 2010 (UTC).

Hej. Problemet verkar vara felaktigt översatta sidor i MediaWikirymden. Jag har updaterat koden på translatewiki ivlket borde l÷sa problemet (nästa gång det synkas). Samma problem verkade finnas för File:File.jpg. Inget att oroa sig f6r hur som helst. Om filnamnet kan ha många tolkingar så kan det i framitden vara bra att kalla dem nått i stil med "File (chess).png" eller "File in Chess.png" eller nått. Men som sagt ingen skada skedd =) /Lokal_Profil 01:23, 24 November 2010 (UTC)

"Test" list of Vanity Fair caricatures with image thumbnails[edit]

Hi, this list will approach completion soon. We need to considering making it official (i...e. a proper name), and also how to decide if/how to split it up to allow faster download. Also - we need to consider if/how to integrate it with the version on EN wiki that people have also been updating. A discussion on how to split it up has started on EN Wiki. My suggestion : move this version to EN Wiki, it is far more complete than the version there. And in future only have a version there, not on Commons. This will allow us to link images from EN wiki - those by authors dead less than 70 years. I'm not sure how we could make the EN version appear on Commons. Or we could just keep this on Commons and somehow make this appear on the EN Wiki - again, I don't know how. But we definitely should only have a single version. Rod. Rcbutcher (talk) 11:14, 15 December 2010 (UTC)

I definitely think it's time to make it more official. I'm all for copying the commons version over to en.wiki.... but still leaving a copy here. Remember that a version on commons is usable by all language versions whereas one on en.wiki isn't. Also yes en.wiki has the benefit that it can include the fair use images, but at the same time this would be a downside since it would make it unusable for projects which don't allow fair use (i.e. lots of other language wikis). I'll take a look at the en.wiki discussion in the coming days. Thanks for the update and all the good work done in filling out the list./ Lokal_Profil (but not signed in) 129.215.149.96
I've moved the list of caricatures to List of Vanity Fair caricatures and split off the list of artists to List of Vanity Fair artists. We need to think about how to speed up download time. Split by year ? Regards, Rod. Rcbutcher (talk) 12:54, 17 December 2010 (UTC)
Sorry for the delayed reply. How about a solution like the one I've implemented on User talk:Lokal Profil/Test? The split would be by year and displayed on separate pages (User:Lokal Profil/Test/p1, User:Lokal Profil/Test/p2) but the code is designed so that you can also show them (and sort them) all on one page (User:Lokal Profil/Test). /Lokal_Profil 12:44, 6 January 2011 (UTC)
Test combines all individual lists p1 p2 etc into the Complete list, yes ? So the list can be accessed quickly by year or as a complete List, while there is still only a single copy of the data. I think this approach is what user en:User:BrownHairedGirl on EN Wiki proposed, you may like to talk to her about it. My only worry is that the mechanism may appear a complete mystery to other less technically sophisticated users who may try to change it in good faith and end up wrecking it or not understand how/where to update it with new images. Rod. Rcbutcher (talk) 15:31, 6 January 2011 (UTC)
Yes that is how it works. And it seems to be similar to what BrownHairedGirl suggested. As for user friendliness the p1 p2 pages are no harder to edit than before so the problem would be if someone tries to edit the all page. This could probably be fixed by adding a comment (either permanently visible or in edit mode only) directing them to the "by year" pages. As for making the p1 p2 pages easier to understand one solution would be to do something similar to [56] where each row in the table becomes a template with clearly labelled parameters. My worry with that is that it would possibly make the page even bigger. /Lokal_Profil 13:00, 8 January 2011 (UTC)
If you are ok with it (seeing that you are the other main contributor) I'll try changing over to the "by year" subpage system I mentioned. As I mentioned on my talk page I don't think it will make editing any harder than it currently is but there might be other things that crop up, such as a possible software limit on how much info can be included through templates. /Lokal_Profil 12:50, 19 January 2011 (UTC)

Looks good & works well. Good work ! We need to consider how to deal with the duplicated list on EN Wiki, to avoid wasting people's time updating it. Maybe simplest is to replace the existing list on EN Wiki with {{Commons|List of Vanity Fair caricatures}} and an explanation that they can find a full list of caricatures by following the Commons link. The list here on Commons includes links on red background for images that exist only on EN Wiki because artist died < 70 years ago - I couldn't find a way to actually show the thumbnail image from EN Wiki file here on Commons, best I could do was a Link, but at least we can point to all images in the Commons list - this makes the EN Wiki list redundant. Rcbutcher (talk) 00:02, 20 January 2011 (UTC)
Thumbnails from en.wiki aren't possible, but that isn't a problem since links should work well. Ideally I'd like to make the red background intelligent so that so that it does "if TODAY < DATE then red background, else green". That way it would be possible to spot when an image becomes PD.
As for the list on en.wiki I'd agree that the image content (at least) should be removed. As for the rest of the list I guess you could argue whether it's still usefull to have separate or not. The obvious downside is that any factual update would have to be duplicated (something I know I haven't had the energy to do when updating the texts in the Commons list). /Lokal_Profil 14:29, 21 January 2011 (UTC)

Filflyttar[edit]

Jag har precis lagt in ett par begäran om filflyttar (se min historik). Jag råkade titta på fel boksida när jag valde filnamn. Det behövs i princip att man gör flytten utan omdirigering, eller att omdirigeringarna raderas... -- Lavallen (talk) 09:45, 22 December 2010 (UTC)

Hur redigera Sveriges kommunkarta[edit]

Hej Lokal Profil! Hur redigerar man dina kommunkartor i Inkscape? Jag har försökt ändra gränserna i programmet men det verkar inte fungera. Kaiser Torikka (talk) 13:15, 6 January 2011 (UTC)

Hej. Om du säger vilken karta det är du försökte med, samt vad du försökte göra och vad som h8nde istället så tar jag mig en titt.
Förresten, jag såg att du uppdaterat File:Riksdag-Valkrets.svg. Kommer du ihåg vilken källa du använde för den nya informationen? /Lokal_Profil 13:54, 6 January 2011 (UTC)
Det är "SWE-Map Kommuner2007.svg" som jag försökte ändra gränserna i, jag tänkte göra om dem till 1952 års gränser.
Källan är Riksdagens hemsida: [58] Kaiser Torikka (talk) 15:30, 6 January 2011 (UTC)
OK nu ser jag vad problemet är. Kartan är skapad från GIS data som när konverterad till SVG gör alla objekt till polygoner. För att enkelt kunna redigera dem krävs att du konverterar dem alla till paths. Detta görs genom att du markerar alla objekt sedan väljer Path->Object to path. /Lokal_Profil 13:09, 8 January 2011 (UTC)

Liten justering[edit]

Hej. Jag kan inget om vektorgrafik men jag hoppas att det inte är för mycket begärt. Skulle du kunna fixa porten i File:Kalmar vapen.svg? Det är ett litet hack till vänster på den. Mvh – GeMet [talk] 07:43, 4 February 2011 (UTC)

Bra! Dock verkar det ha blivit "ett litet glapp" i undre vänstra kanten på porten. Mvh – GeMet [talk] 12:13, 7 February 2011 (UTC)
Sant. har nu fixat till detta och samtidigt gjort vapnet symmetriskt (vilket det av nan anledning inte var tidigare). Hojta garna till ifall du hittar problem i andra vapen. /Lokal_Profil 12:54, 7 February 2011 (UTC)
Samma problem ligger ju i ursprungsbilden File:Châtelat-coat of arms.svg. Jag upptäckte även att mellanrummen mellan tinnarna på borgtornet inte är lika stort; det är något större i mitten. Mvh – GeMet [talk] 22:51, 7 February 2011 (UTC)
Sant igen =). Har nu fixat till tinnarna (och lutningen pa sidorna). Eftersom originalet fel i sig så betyder det att jag måste introducera rättningarna till dessa också. Men denna gången så väntar jag och ser ifall du hittar nått mer först =) /Lokal_Profil 23:17, 7 February 2011 (UTC)

Hej Humilis. Så länge bilderna laddats upp med samma namn så är det inga problem. Det ända som händer är att det finns flera versioner i historiken, något som som inte är helt ovanligt och som oftast inte behöver åtgärdas. Eftersom det nu rörde sig om så många så raderade jag de senare så att enbart den första nu syns. =) /Lokal_Profil 22:53, 7 February 2011 (UTC)

Odd date in Vanity Fair 1898-12-11[edit]

1898-12-11 The Pilgrim Resting on His Way GAW

I can't find any reference online to this image, the only place it seems to appear is the list in "In Vanity Fair". And the given date is odd - previous is dated 1898-12-08 and next is dated 1898-12-15. Do you have access to any other lists where it can be checked ? regards, Rod Rcbutcher (talk) 03:30, 15 February 2011 (UTC)

Seems weird. Couldn't find any info regarding it either (apart from "In Vanity Fair"). Considering that we know that is missing some images (e.g. "no limit") it might be a misstake, may also be some special edition I guess. /Lokal_Profil 15:37, 15 February 2011 (UTC)

Religion in the United States map error[edit]

Hello, the SVG map you made in 2007 for Religion in the United States has a small problem in that you colored West Virginia blue instead of red, as West Virginia has a majority of Baptists, not Catholics. The PNG map is accurate. This is the ARIS report which is the basis for the map. You can see that Catholics make up only 6-7 %

[ARIS Catholic Survey]

Here is their information on Baptists in West Virginia

Den feedback vi fått säger ungefär att det var en lång startsträcka och nu börjar dom fundera på hur det är med dubletterna. Annars är dom nöjda, har fått se statistik på att bilderna faktiskt används i artiklar och vill plocka fram nya bilder i samband med Wiki Loves Monuments där dom är med som partner till WMSE.
Kan du på något enkelt sätt (bot?) kolla vilka av dubletterna som har fått nånting som är värt att föra över till den riktiga filen och föra över och ta bort dom "fuluppladdade" bilderna eller är det manuellt jobb att göra det? Finns det rutin på från andra uppladdningar? /Haxpett (talk) 17:18, 22 June 2011 (UTC)

Ska ta en titt pa dubletterna. Ska se om det finns nagra botverktyg for att analysera historiken for bildsidorna. I sa fall borde man atminstonne kunna snabfiltrera dubletterna och kansek fa bort en del. Men jag kan tanka mig att det nog anda involverar en hel del manuellt arbete. /Lokal_Profil 13:54, 4 July 2011 (UTC)
Eftersom bilderna ersatts av omdirigeringar sa kommer sidorna fortfarande att existera (blaa lankar), vilket gor det svarare att se om de faktiskt raderats eller inte, bara ett papekande. /Lokal_Profil 14:07, 4 July 2011 (UTC)
Jag och Lennart ska träffa Kajsa Hartig näste vecka. Jag kollar med henne om felrapportering då. Jobbigt om det blir manuellt arbete, men det kanske är så det får bli. Även om det blir blålänkar kommer dom väl att tömmas på kategorier och liknande så att dom inte syns lika lätt och det kommer inte att finnas kvar bilder där inte tillbakalänkarna till NM finns? Tror du att du hinner titta på det innan nästa vecka så vi har nånting att säga till Kajsa då?
När det gäller WLM får du gärna vara med i arbetsgruppen och hjälpa till. Eftersom du verkar ha bra koll på Commons tror jag du kan vara till bra hjälp! /Haxpett (talk) 23:24, 4 July 2011 (UTC)
Ska kolla efter botmojligheter i dagarna, oavsett vad sa ska jag ocksa borja manuellt marka upp/radera dem. Det ar ca. 500 stycken sa i varst a fall sa skulle man kunna se om man kan dela upp arbetet bland nagra volontarer. Det tidskravande ar att overfora eventuell information. Nar detta val ar gjort kan jag skota ersattningar, raderingar och omdirigeringar relativt snabbt. Nar sidorna blir omdirigerar sa blir de i stort sett tomma skal som enbart pekar vidare till den riktiga filsidan sa tillbakalankar etc. finns dar. Fordelen ar, framst, att eventuella externa lankar som pekat pa sidorna fortfarande fungerar.

Copyright query/request[edit]

Hi,

Apologies if this is a bit clumsy, but I'm new here and getting a bit lost.

I'd like to double check that you'd be happy for me to use this image (http://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/File:Sk%C3%A5ne_l%C3%A4n_vapen.svg) as an illustration in an academic book that I'm writing. How can I contact you directly to discuss this?

Thanks!

Hi. Feel free to use the image in your work, just hapy to see that it's useful. You would have to include a credit-line/reference though but I could help you with that if you want. The easiest way of contacting me is either through this page or if you wan't it to be non-public then you can always e-mail me through Special:EmailUser/Lokal_Profil. =) /Lokal_Profil 14:16, 5 July 2011 (UTC)

Hej Lokal Profil! Jag skrev nyligen till Koysos om att TV4 har använt hans bild av Försvarsmakten vapen. Med anledning av att han/hon angett dig som ursprunglig källa till bilden ville jag uppmärksamma dig. – GeMet [talk] 18:29, 20 July 2011 (UTC)

Batch upload[edit]

Hey Lokal do you have any experience with batch uploads? I need some help here http://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/Commons:Batch_uploading/UMich Thanks --James Heilman, MD (talk) 20:04, 1 August 2011 (UTC)

As I see it the main problem won't be the batch upload but rather the scraping of the information. In order for the batch upload to be possible information (for each image) about caption, photographer, license (since some may be cc-by), filename etc. must be available in a structured format. /Lokal_Profil 15:08, 9 August 2011 (UTC)
So this will need to be done manually than? --James Heilman, MD (talk) 23:57, 9 August 2011 (UTC)
The prep work (collecting captions, images and licenses/authors) would have to be done manually before an automated batch upload. Or if you can find someone with good scraping skills then they might be able to automate that part as well. Might be better to ask on the Village Pump to see if anyone steps up. /Lokal_Profil 12:45, 13 August 2011 (UTC)

Fornminnesmall[edit]

Tack Lokal Profil för att du ändrade ett av mina foton till mallen Fornminne istället för BBR! Nu vet jag hur mallen fungerar och kan använda den själv! / Achird (talk) 10:48, 2 September 2011 (UTC)

Bra att den kom till nytta. Planen ar att andra WLM2011 uppladdningsformularet sa att man kan valja om det ar byggnader eller fornminne man vill ladda upp och att den saledes anvander {{BBR}} eller {{Fornminne}} beroende pa vilket som onskas.
Pa vilket satt graver du fram ObjektID numret? Ar intresserad av hur folk gatt till vaga da ingen av metoderna jag kommit pa slar mig som direkt enkel. /Lokal_Profil 10:52, 2 September 2011 (UTC)
Jag letar reda på fornlämningen i Fornsök, klickar på Direktlänk uppe till höger och tycker sedan Uppdatera i den ruta som kommer upp. I adressen som då kommer upp i fältet finns ordet "objektid" (bläddra fram ca 80-100 tecken för att hitta det) och jag tar då den 14-siffriga koden efter likamedtecknet. Vet jag ett objekts RAÄ-nummer så går det dock att skriva ihop ObjektID-koden själv. För fornminnen i åtminstone Västergötland börjar man med 10 (jag kommer tyvärr inte ihåg vad 10:an står för) och lägger sedan till sockenkoden som finns i sv:Lista över socknar i Västergötland eller i Riksantikvarieämbetets Förteckning över städer och socknar (1999). Därefter lägger man till objektnumret skrivet med fyra siffror och sist undernumret med fyra siffror. Sammanlagt blir det en sträng på 14 siffror. RAÄ-nr Hornborga 29:1 (Ekornavallen) blir alltså 10+1928+0029+0001, d.v.s. 10192800290001. Nu är jag ju arkeolog och har hållt på och krånglat med dessa koder i 15 år, så för mig funkar det rätt bra, men det är väl synd att kalla metoden enkel. Metoden verkar därtill inte fungera för nyare RAÄ-nummer utan undernummer. / Achird (talk) 11:19, 2 September 2011 (UTC)
Wow. Tack for bade svaret och forklaringen pa varifran siffrorna kommer. Det snabbaste sattet jag funnit att fa fram siffrorna ar genom att hogerklicka pa lanken vid "Visa i Google Earth", valja kopiera lank och sedan ur denna url plocka fram ObjektId-numret. /Lokal_Profil 11:43, 2 September 2011 (UTC)
Kanske läser slarvigt i dokumentationen, men jag funderar över de "Övriga kulturhistoriska lämningarna" Jag placerade mallen på en sådan och det gick ju utmärkt, men är det lämpligt. Borde det markeras på något vis, eller hur göra? Se File:Morkullosbro.JPG. Taxelson (talk) 16:58, 2 September 2011 (UTC)
Jag ser inget fel i att använda mallen Fornminne på allt som finns i registrerat i Fornminnesreigstret/FMIS. Vad mallen främst gör är ju att länka till objektet i FMIS Fornsök och där framgår ju mer exakt vad det handlar om för slags objekt. Vad gäller exemplet: En 200 år gammal dendrodaterad kavelbro kan ju enligt min mening klassas som "Fast fornlämning", men olika arkeologer gör ju olika bedömningar. / Achird (talk) 22:37, 2 September 2011 (UTC)
Tanken ar att allt som finns i Fornsok ska kunna markas upp med {{Fornminne}}. De enda bilder som inte bor markas med BBR eller Fornminne ar t.ex. statyer, K-markta fartyg och liknande som ingar i tavlingen men inte finns med i nagon av de tva databaserna. /Lokal_Profil 11:48, 3 September 2011 (UTC)

Two systems in Sweden?[edit]

Hi Lokal Profil, I noticed your edit at {{BBR}}. So apparently Sweden had two systems: {{Fornminne}} and {{BBR}}. Commons:Wiki Loves Monuments 2011/Monuments database still assumes that there is only {{BBR}}. Is it a good idea to expand this to be able to handle both types? Can you explain the difference between the two systems? Multichill (talk) 13:42, 8 October 2011 (UTC)

Sweden used three systems actually. BBR (listed buildings) which are the ones included in the database. Fornminne (sites of archeological interest) which we never had time to make lists out of. It relies on a separate database with 1.7 million entries so we need to make a decision on what to include, the goal is to have this done before WLM2012. And lastly we had an "others" category (statues, listed ships and similar but not based on a list or database) which were temporarily tagged with {{WLM2011-se-ovr}} (since removed and deleted). This last one was included due to early negotiations with our GLAM partners.
Since the Fornminne images aren't in the WLM database I constructed a few tools to verify their IDs and find coordinates etc, essentially constructing a bare bones local database. Did you already have a tool for geotagging images based on their ID? and if so could you possibly point me to it so that I can adapt it for these other images.
As for the categorisation by the templates this ended up being a side effect of the need for a type and county parameter in order to link to the correct page on sv.wiki (see template:BBR/sv). There have been discussions on sv.wiki, here on Commons and by e-mail regarding what should be done. The opinion seems to favour easy categorisation (i.e. not via template) over links to sv.wiki but a decision seems to be postponed until after the competitions (jury wise) is over. However since I spotted your edit on {{Fornminne}} I figured that it seemed like a good start. Since the BBR images contain a mixture of direct "protected buildings in"-categories and by template only categories I've left the default categorisation in whilst I use AWB to add the category directly to the image. Once done I'll remove the default. Don't know if this is something you checked for Fornminne otherwise it's likely to be the same situation there. /Lokal_Profil 14:56, 9 October 2011 (UTC)

Bulls VS oxes[edit]

In heraldry there are diferences between an ox and a bull. The bull has the sex drawed and the tail is over the body, instead the ox has not the sex drawed (a ox is a bull without "balls") and the tail is falled. The COA of Oxie (File:Oxie vapen.svg) say I fält av guld en röd oxe, but the image has a bull (tjur). Regards. --Xavigivax (talk) 22:26, 8 January 2012 (UTC)

Hi. I'm sorry but there are just way to many for me to do that. The problem is that the Swedish CoAs seldom have an existing blazon in English which would mean that I'd have to formulate a new one for each and every one. Apart from the amount of work involved I'm also not sufficiently good at English blazoning to do this. /Lokal_Profil 18:51, 12 February 2012 (UTC)

Regarding File:Samesex marriage in USA.svg[edit]

Hey, if I am correct, you were the one who coded the backbone of this map. I was wondering, do you know if there is a way we can overlay numbers onto the map? We have footnotes in the legend and were wondering if it possible to overlay the footnote numbers onto the map? Thanks Thegreyanomaly (talk) 01:16, 19 February 2012 (UTC)

Hi. It wouldn't be hard to add numbers to the map but I'm not sure that's the ideal solution. Apart from anything else it would make updating the map more of a hassle in the future. Wouldn't it be better to use the image annotation tool? /Lokal_Profil 12:37, 21 February 2012 (UTC)
People actually wanted triple striping so they could indicate that laws on the books were not in effect (you can see the talk page for more details), but I told them that wasn't possible. A compromise that I got at least person to support would be to put numeric labels on the states where the footnotes are active. Thegreyanomaly (talk) 00:30, 22 February 2012 (UTC)
What I meant was that using the built in annotation function (i.e. the add note button under the image) would be an easier way of adding a number or text. If there is a reason for why that wouldn't work then just give me the list of states and numbers and I'll make one with the numbers explicitly put in instead. /Lokal_Profil 21:44, 22 February 2012 (UTC)
I'm a bit confused on how to do that. I can't find the annotation button. We need a 1 on Washington and soon Maryland and a 2 on California. Thegreyanomaly (talk) 22:44, 28 February 2012 (UTC)
I figured out the annotation, but it only shows up when you mouse over, I need to something visibly part of the image. Thegreyanomaly (talk) 22:50, 28 February 2012 (UTC)
Ok. I thought we wanted something which was less distracting. Also it has the benefit that you can put the actual text up rather than just the number which links to the footnote. So is it a 1 on Washington (state) and Maryland and a 2 on California that is needed in the end? /Lokal_Profil 13:45, 2 March 2012 (UTC)
Yup, unless SSM is legalized in any other state anytime soon, that is all we need for now. Thanks! Thegreyanomaly (talk) 01:27, 4 March 2012 (UTC)

Charles XIV John and Oscar 1 of Sweden[edit]

Hello sorry me for disturbing you, I do research on the shields of Charles XIV John of Sweden and his son Oscar of Sweden

I found two coats, but I have not found the image of Oscar when he was Duke of Södermanland, you know?

Second question, I found it on the net but there is no explanation what Charles XIV John of Sweden was Count of Skåne before being King??

http://www.francegenweb.org/~heraldique/base/details.php?image_id=19798

thank you in advance for your help Good day to you cordially--Dunkerqueenflandre (talk) 15:16, 22 February 2012 (UTC)

Hi. Firstly when it comes to the royal arms there is an excellent book called "Dynastien Bernadottes vapen och det svenska riksvapnet" by Arvid Berghman from 1944[66]. I've only had access to it once but it is filled with the arms including the princely ones (i.e. when they were duke of a province etc.) That book might contain the arms but I cannot guarantee it. As for Charles XIV John being a count of Skåne before becoming king seems unlikely. More likely is that of Charles XV or Gustaf VI Adolf, but once again I'm not sure.
Would it be possible to take a look at the two coats of arms that you've found? Cheers. /Lokal_Profil 22:16, 22 February 2012 (UTC)


Hi, Oscar 1: [67] and [68]
and that before her marriage to Oscar on the crest but is there left to the crest of the Province to a point I fail to see. [69]

Hi. It might be his arms but it's hard to say. Based on his kingly arms it's quite likely that it is his but there have been plenty of Dukes of Södermanland so there is the possibility that it belonged to one of them. /Lokal_Profil 12:40, 25 February 2012 (UTC)
