Image information[edit]

You claim that the image Image:Sadc logo.gif is public domain. What is your source for this? Also, Image:Marriage usa.png have no source or license. Images without this crucial information may have to be deleted. Thuresson 21:38, 5 Jun 2005 (UTC)

In the latter case, that might be the best course of action; I created it by adapting an already existing image used in the respective article, but then happened to find it that I had conflicting information on the actual status of same-sex unions in the different states. Regarding the SADC logo, I think I recall reading that for uses representing the organisation in media and information networks, the logo is available for free use; could be my mistake, though. Nightstallion 13:52, 6 Jun 2005 (UTC)
You're right about logos of companies or organisations, there are usually no problems using logos for journalistic purposes. However, WikiCommons is a image databank, not a journalistic product. Also, WikiCommons rules do not allow images that do not have a free license, see Commons:Licensing. Thuresson 7 July 2005 17:34 (UTC)

Yes, it's okay. Do it, please ;-) --Sanbec 12:30, 28 November 2005 (UTC)

Don't you think Image:Flag of Sao Tome and Principe.svg should be at Image:Flag of São Tomé and Príncipe.svg, to agree with w:Flag of São Tomé and Príncipe? It's not like diacritics cause cancer or something ... User:dbenbenn 00:34, 2 December 2005 (UTC)

Mh. Well, I standardized names to be without diacritics, mainly because Côte d'Ivoire's flag was uploaded without diacritics and I used it as a precedent case... I wouldn't be opposed to it, of course, but I'm not sure whether it's worth the effort. Mh. Flag of Europe and Austria.svg ナイトスタリオン 06:31, 2 December 2005 (UTC)

Request[edit]

I've got one more flag request, but since it's personal and not for general use, I thought I'd rather post it here than on the WikiProject Flags page. Could you be so nice as to create an SVG flag that consists of half the European flag, and half the Austrian one? It's probably not very hard to code it, but I've got no knowledge of SVG at all... I think it'd look best if it were split diagonally, with the European flag half in the upper left and the Austrian flag half in the lower right. Could you do that? Would be greatly appreciated. Thanks! Flag of Europe.svgFlag of Austria.svg ナイトスタリオン 20:38, 1 December 2005 (UTC)

Image:European-Austrian flag hybrid.svg. Open that file in a text editor, and compare it to the two separate flags. Also, if you want to learn SVG, check out [1] for some good documentation.
I think there are some other hybrid flags here on the Commons. Perhaps they should go in Category:Hybrid flags. User:dbenbenn 00:29, 2 December 2005 (UTC)

What's the problem? Thanks for your help! —Nightstallion (?) 21:13, 23 January 2006 (UTC)

The <title> element, most likely. Swap it out for <desc>. The JavaScript (ECMAScript) stuff might cause problems, too, but I know <title> isn't allowed. ¦ Reisio 21:50, 23 January 2006 (UTC)
The JavaScript was still an issue; I took it out, and now it works. Still needs cleanup, though; colours need to be checked, size should be increased. Could you do that? Thanks for your help! —Nightstallion (?) 07:09, 24 January 2006 (UTC)
I increased the size. In general, it's easy. You just set a larger size in your <svg> element, then just inside the SVG element you put <g transform="scale(whatever)"> everything else </g>. Cheers, User:dbenbenn 17:08, 24 January 2006 (UTC)
Oh, okay. Thanks! —Nightstallion (?) 18:49, 24 January 2006 (UTC)

Image:Flag of the French Southern and Antarctic Lands.svg[edit]

This flag should probably be re-uploaded as Image:Flag of the French Southern Territories.svg, since en:French Southern Territories is where enwiki's article is... And it should be added to your table, ne? —Nightstallion (?) 07:24, 25 January 2006 (UTC)

I'd have to look into the name some. The actual official French name (as the en page says) is translated much closer to "French Southern and Antarctic Lands" than it is to "French Southern Territories". I know the precident is to have it match the en article's name, but I'm not sure it really matters when it's already this close (and is actually more accurate). You might take it up with the WikiProject if you want more input.
Presently my table only has places from en:list of countries listed, but perhaps it is time to start expanding it. Maybe it's time to ask the WikiProject if taking it out of my namespace and promoting more participation would be a good idea, too. Hrmmm. ¦ Reisio 08:46, 25 January 2006 (UTC)

Image:Flag of Tibet.gif[edit]

Thank you for your contributions.

Please do not use ANY {{delete}} template (such as {{db}}) unless you are certain that the file is not used on any projects. The above referenced image is still used on twenty different wikipedias. Deleting this image would cause inordinate amount of scurrying to replace it. {{redundant}} would have sufficed for this image. Thank you. Bas parler voir 15:05, 29 January 2006 (UTC)

Oh, sorry. I thought {{db}} was also to be used when the file should be deleted in general, but needs to be replaced first. Sorry, my mistake, should have checked. —Nightstallion (?) 18:32, 29 January 2006 (UTC)

Federal subjects of Russia[edit]

I have a question about the maps of Russia that you did.

  • etc

The same happens in Image:Krais of Russia.png

Do you have any idea to show in those maps that Autonomous Districs are always inside Oblasts or Krais? Pmmollet talk I speak Catalan and I feel European 09:49, 3 February 2006 (UTC)

I originally erroneously created the maps like this, but later decided together with User:Ezhiki, one of the experts on Russian federal subjects on :en, that it wouldn't hurt only to show the core areas in these maps. Besides, in a few years Putin will have merged most of the autonomous regions into larger krais, anyway. ;) —Nightstallion (?) 14:20, 3 February 2006 (UTC)

Another request[edit]

Hi!

Say, would you mind creating another hybrid flag for me? I'd require a flag with the the UK flag in the upper left corner and the English one in the lower right... I tried to make it myself, based on the other hybrid flags, but I couldn't manage. Thanks! —Nightstallion (?) 18:52, 3 March 2006 (UTC)

Is this roughly what you had in mind? Looks kind of odd ... (If so, I can fix that stray blue line.) User:dbenbenn 19:43, 3 March 2006 (UTC)
Yes, that's basically it; fixing the line would be appreciated. Thanks a lot! —Nightstallion (?) 21:22, 3 March 2006 (UTC)
Done. User:dbenbenn 02:42, 4 March 2006 (UTC)

new mid east map[edit]

Hi Nightstallion! just replying to a comment you left ages ago (I was on a long wikibreak), I am not sure the mid east map can be remade after seeing the comment on w:Image talk:Ralph Peters solution to Mideast.jpg. What do you think? --Astrokey44 12:20, 5 December 2006 (UTC)

Mh. I'm not so sure, actually, but I'm no copyright expert. —Nightstallion (?) 14:22, 5 December 2006 (UTC)
I'm not sure what the map is depicting, but I _am_ sure it can be remade (observing certain rules) and licensed in any fashion. ¦ Reisio 17:13, 5 December 2006 (UTC)
It's mainly a proposal for redrawn borders in the Middle East made by some army official at the Armed Forces blog. Astrokey, since it seems remaking and relicensing it *is* possible, do you feel up to it? It's nothing which I require soon or even for an article, it's only for personal convenience. Thanks either way, both of you! —Nightstallion (?) 21:21, 5 December 2006 (UTC)
I'm not convinced. These are not existing borders, this is one person's suggestion, one person's creative idea. I think a redrawn map would still be a derivative work of the original and therefore unfree. —Angr 10:55, 6 December 2006 (UTC)

European monarchies by succession[edit]

In the legend to Image:European_Union_monarchies_by_succession.png you state that Denmark has "male primogeniture, to be changed to equal primogeniture". What is your source for this? Currently, we have male-preference primogeniture and changing this requires a national referundum. There was discussion of changing the succession law while Mary was pregnant, but since she had a boy nothing came of it. --Turbothy 09:20, 11 February 2007 (UTC)

Your request[edit]

Hey man,

I have the maps with Kosovo ready to upload here. However, until some other country recognizes them, I'm waiting on doing the uploads. I don't want to rush into anything since the situation is so sensitive. Hoshie 10:58, 18 February 2008 (UTC)

Most of the Blank maps in Category:Blank maps of the world have been updated since I've read the US, UK, and a few other nations have recognized Kosovo. Hoshie 23:45, 18 February 2008 (UTC)
What maps do you need? I'll be more than happy to update and upload them. Hoshie 10:42, 19 February 2008 (UTC)

Kosovo[edit]

  • Kirgisistan will not recognize Kosovo (german)[10]
  • China (Because of the Taiwan and Tibet conflict China will never recognize Kosovo to risk to loose Taiwan to the USA finally) and
  • Indonesia [11]
  • How do you think of Cuba. Orange!! No better red colour!
  • What's about Myanmar? Myanmar (Birma) as a victim of the USA some months ago when China had blocked the UN-resolution! They'll never underline anything of the USA
  • Why is Cyprus devieded? It's recognized by the USA and EU as one country!!??
  • Poland waits for a unity point of view of the hole EU, so wrong colour!

Request 2[edit]

These maps have been fixed:

I'm still trying to figure out how to update the bigger Europe maps. Enjoy! Hoshie 22:27, 22 February 2008 (UTC)

All of the other maps are done! I also updated the Europe level blank maps as well; see Category:Blank maps of Europe. Hoshie 14:05, 24 February 2008 (UTC)
Image:European states by head of state.png is done! Hoshie 18:54, 25 February 2008 (UTC)

Armenia[edit]

Just because the decision hasn't been formalised yet it doesn't make it neutral. Maybe light orange but neutral is not a name for a country which calls Kosovo recognition illegal and say it will not recognise it. Don't you think so? --Avala 17:25, 26 February 2008 (UTC)

Your source is from 17 February -- this source from yesterday clearly shows Armenia is neutral for now. Okay? —Nightstallion (?) 17:29, 26 February 2008 (UTC)
No my source says "Armenia not going to recognize Kosovo independence 25.02.2008 14:35 GMT+04:00". I am puzzled now because two sources publish two different stories on the same day. I would like this to be resolved in civilized matter and without threats from some users though. Obviously there is some confusion going on in Armenia and we need to figure what is going on rather then to fight. I am not sure why the other user took this issue so personally as I have just followed news sources I found. --Avala 17:40, 26 February 2008 (UTC)
Oh, strange. I was just quoting the source in the English Wikipedia article -- that one's from 17 February. I'd say unless we've got clear evidence that it's officially against recognition, we should consider them neutral for now, shouldn't we? —Nightstallion (?) 18:10, 26 February 2008 (UTC)
Yeah I see that in reference it says 17/2 but it's an edit error. When you open the news article it gives 25/02. I don't know maybe putting it back to gray then since Armenia obviously doesn't have a clear diplomacy since they are able to make completely different statements to two different media companies, one from Azerbaijan one from Armenia. Maybe that is the case. They are telling Azerbaijan they are neutral so they could continue with recognizing Karabakh but they also tell Russians and domestic readers they are not recognizing. Very unprofessional if you ask me. --Avala 18:36, 26 February 2008 (UTC)
Mh. Yeah, sounds fair enough. —Nightstallion (?) 19:36, 26 February 2008 (UTC)

One more thing. I've noticed your revert wars on maps. I have seen that on Wikipedia there is an agreement to show maps in regard to countries position. So if it shows France on Europe map it shows Serbia and Kosovo as two countries but if it shows Spain it shows Serbia and Kosovo as one country. So if the map is on Kosovo it shows Kosovo as independent but if it is a map of Serbia it shows Serbia with Kosovo. We have to be careful about the thing called partial recognition and that obviously there are so many conflicted views on this and that we can't take one side - neither is Kosovo part of Serbia neither it's independent. --Avala 17:45, 26 February 2008 (UTC)

I've tried to discuss the issue with Cp6, but he won't listen -- the issue is quite obviously analogous to the Sahrawi Arab Democratic Republic issue, which Morocco claims as part of its territory. The SADR is only recognised by about 40 states (that's about the minimum approval Kosovo will get, as well), but it's shown on ALL OF OUR MAPS as a distinct entity -- so Kosovo should logically be given the same treatment, no? —Nightstallion (?) 18:10, 26 February 2008 (UTC)
I think neither solution is good. I am all for midsolution, compromise and that is for an example showing map of Kosovo with striped or shaded Serbia and Serbia with striped or shaded Kosovo. That would show that there is some dispute behind it and that the issue of borders is not solved. Making any other kind of map which includes only one side is not good because it will always be reverted as the other side will think it's unfair. --Avala 18:36, 26 February 2008 (UTC)
I would agree with that -- except for the fact that there's a clear precedent in the Western Sahara/SADR case... If we go with your solution, we'd also have to shade the Western Sahara *AND* Taiwan *AND* all the other territorial disputes over minor border issues, of which there are a couple dozen. I think it's the better way to use the SADR precedent in this case -- especially as Cp6 has so far been the only one who's against the update to the maps... —Nightstallion (?) 19:36, 26 February 2008 (UTC)
Actually Western Sahara is exactly using what I suggest.
  • Location map of Morocco on Wikipedia article
    Location map of Western Sahara on Wikipedia article

--Avala 19:50, 26 February 2008 (UTC)

Yes and no -- I absolutely agree that articles which specifically treat Serbia and/or Kosovo should do it like this, but the general world maps we've got ALL show Western Sahara (and Palestine) as a separate entity due to the partial recognition of the disputed status. So I think it's okay if we do it as we've just both stated:

  • Maps which are specifically about Serbia or Kosovo should use the striped/shaded pattern.
  • Maps unrelated to the issue should show the de facto situation -- and as Kosovo is partially recognised like SADR and Palestine, that means with the borders.

Do you agree with that? —Nightstallion (?) 20:29, 26 February 2008 (UTC)

Pretty much. Though EU map will again have to have some sort of signal as EU has no common position. This is a very specific case it seems as the whole world is divided on issue. I wish those politicians could have just solved it with some kind of compromise to make our lives easier :) For an example how does EU think to start Kosovo accession if it doesn't recognize it? --Avala 20:41, 26 February 2008 (UTC)
If you want my interpretation of the issue: The Cyprus issue will -- hopefully -- be resolved rather quickly in the next two years; after that, Cyprus and Greece will have no problems recognising the realities on the ground. Slovakia and Romania don't really have a strong reason to be against the independence, as the Hungarian minorities in both countries have repeatedly promised not to make a fuss about the Kosovo precendent; the only real question is Spain, and I suspect that Zapatero might be more conciliant regarding Kosovan independence AFTER the election in early March. But we'll see. —Nightstallion (?) 20:49, 26 February 2008 (UTC)
Considering Basques have announced test referendum for late 2008 and real one for 2010, and Hungarians in Romania have asked for the same thing as Kosovo a few days ago and Cypriot Greeks have rejected unification plan not so long ago so I think the new president is too optimistic that Turkish army will pull out and that Greeks will agree on reunification this thing will probably drag for some time and the only thing I can imagine solving it (in some time though) is if EU invites both Serbia and Kosovo to make a confederation and join the union. --Avala 21:02, 26 February 2008 (UTC)
I don't think that would be a solution, as Kosovans would only accept a confederation if an independence referendum was possible after some time -- so no chance there, I suppose. I'd like to see the sources for your claims about Romania and the 2010 Basque referendum -- all I know about that is that Ibarretxe announced some non-descript referendum about the future of the País Vasco about a year ago, but still hasn't said what it'll actually be about -- some even claim that it will be his masterstroke to kill ETA, since if a majority is against independence, then ETA will have to accept the public's opinion. And the Greek Cypriots mainly rejected reunification because Papadopoulos refused to finish negotiations begun by his predecessor Klerides -- I'm pretty certain Talat and Christofias should have a solution ready by the end of 2009. But we'll see.
So, your sources for the Romanian Hungarians' claim to independence and for the 2010 referendum? ;)Nightstallion (?) 22:15, 26 February 2008 (UTC)
No no no, It was the Basques who are doing that - [12]: "A referendum in the Basque Country regarding Basque self determination is scheduled for 25 October 2008. Ibarretxe stated he would negotiate its terms with the Spanish central government until June 2008, and would submit a possible mutually accepted plan to a binding referendum; should the negotiations fail, Ibarretxe stated he would hold a non-binding referendum on the future of the Basque Country.[2] Another referendum in 2010 would then decide the final status of the Basque Country."--Avala 23:12, 26 February 2008 (UTC)
Yes, I meant "sources for independence claim of Hungarians in Romania" and "sources for the 2010 referendum of the Basques".
Ouch, I had totally forgotten that. (It was me who added that to the article. ;)) Still, as I've said, some people claim this is a secret plan to kill ETA's political right to exist, forever. What about the Hungarians? Haven't found anything on that... —Nightstallion (?) 23:52, 26 February 2008 (UTC)
Could be. Unless they vote 'yes'. Regarding Hungarians in Romania - http://www.novinite.com/view_news.php?id=90497 - "Leaders of the Democratic Union of the Hungarians in Romania (DUHR) stated their intention to use the Kosovo precedent in order to ask for territorial autonomy for the regions of Mures, Harghita, and Kovasna, where most of the Hungarian minority lives, the Romanian press reported Monday" 18 February 2008 --Avala 01:26, 27 February 2008 (UTC)
They'll never vote yes, trust me. I'm very sympathetic to independence movements in general, but there simply isn't a majority in the Basque Country, much less so in Navarre and the French Basque Country. Thanks for the link! Still, that's only a claim to autonomy (which they should get, if you ask me). —Nightstallion (?) 08:56, 27 February 2008 (UTC)
Yeah I wouldn't mind independence in the most developed countries because it changes nothing (well passport and capital) but I am not really for independence of places like Transnistria ie. independence should come at the moment that nobody cares and not otherwise it causes instability and no real independence (if you have 50+% unemployment it means your new country must rely on donations = it's not independent, it's just changing hands). If independence needs to be followed by three different overseeing international bodies then again it's a sign of a too early secession. If I remember correctly Serbia offered Kosovo it's own membership everywhere they wanted except for the UN. Now Kosovo doesn't get the UN and it doesn't get membership in those other European organizations either. --Avala 12:42, 27 February 2008 (UTC)
True enough, at least for now. But we'll see how the situation develops. Serbia's attachment to Kosovo is irrational and purely emotional -- economically and politically, they'd be far better off without the complicated, expensive and unruly southern province. Maybe they'll see that in a decade or two, but we can only wait and hope the situation will be resolved somehow... —Nightstallion (?) 12:47, 27 February 2008 (UTC)

Hello, Nightstallion!

Tip: Add categories to your images

Thanks a lot for contributing to the Wikimedia Commons! Here's a tip to make your uploads more useful: Why not add some categories to describe them? This will help more people to find and use them.

Here's how:

1) If you're using the UploadWizard, you can add categories to each file when you describe it. Just click "more options" for the file and add the categories which make sense:

Uploadwizard-categories.png

2) You can also pick the file from your list of uploads, edit the file description page, and manually add the category code at the end of the page.

[[Category:Category name]]

For example, if you are uploading a diagram showing the orbits of comets, you add the following code:

[[Category:Astronomical diagrams]]
[[Category:Comets]]

This will make the diagram show up in the categories "Astronomical diagrams" and "Comets".

When picking categories, try to choose a specific category ("Astronomical diagrams") over a generic one ("Illustrations"). Pro-tip: The CommonSense tool can help you find the best category for your image.

Thanks again for your uploads! More information about categorization can be found in Commons:Categories, and don't hesitate to leave a note on the help desk.

Libyan Revolt Flag[edit]

Can you possibly change it to the more accurate depiction of a tricolor with bands of width, as that is the most common variant being flown, also on a side note, a majority of the makeshift flags have star and crescents, though mostly crudely drawn and sometimes just the outlines making them difficult to see in photos

Hi!! Could you create an svg of the Flag of Leal Senado (pt:Bandeira do Leal Senado (Macau)) based on this Flags of the World - Bandeiras do Concelho de Macau?? This flag is very relevant, because it represents the old Macau, the Macau governed by the portuguese... this flag is so representative that in the handover ceremony of Macau, this flag was used to represent the portuguese Macau, instead of the Flag of the Government of Portuguese Macau.

Warning sign
This media may be deleted.
Thanks for uploading File:Flag of San Marino.svg. I notice that the file page either doesn't contain enough information about the license or it contains contradictory information about the license, so the copyright status is unclear.

If you created this file yourself, then you must provide a valid copyright tag. For example, you can tag it with {{self|GFDL|cc-by-sa-all}} to release it under the multi-license GFDL plus Creative Commons Attribution-ShareAlike All-version license or you can tag it with {{PD-self}} to release it into the public domain. (See Commons:Copyright tags for the full list of license tags that you can use.)

If you did not create the file yourself or if it is a derivative of another work that is possibly subject to copyright protection, then you must specify where you found it (e.g. usually a link to the web page where you got it), you must provide proof that it has a license that is acceptable for Commons (e.g. usually a link to the terms of use for content from that page), and you must add an appropriate license tag. If you did not create the file yourself and the specific source and license information is not available on the web, you must obtain permission through the OTRS system and follow the procedure described there.

Note that any unsourced or improperly licensed files will be deleted one week after they have been marked as lacking proper information, as described in criteria for speedy deletion. If you have uploaded other files, please confirm that you have provided the proper information for those files, too. (You can get a list of all your uploaded files using the Gallery tool.) Thank you.

File:Flag of the Dominican Republic.svg[edit]

Sir,

My name is Alexis Ovalle. The picture you uploaded with name "Flag of the Dominican Republic.svg" has an error. In the coat of arms the red ribbon in the bottom reading "Republica Dominicana" should have its ends pointing upwards. This is in accordance to article 32 of the Dominican Republic's constitution. Since your picture is widely used in wekipedia, an update to the picture would be suitable. I have uploaded a picture of the correct coat of arms into Commons which you are welcome to use as a reference or copy.
