Hungarian Occupied Yugoslavia Map Request[edit]

Hi Peacemaker, I just saw your request. Sure that would be no problem! I already have a map of WWII Hungary I can use as the source. I'll come up with something, upload it then you can let me know if you need anything changing. The only contentious area I can see is the part also claimed by NDH (Medimurje and Southern Baranya). I believe the Hungarians occupied this area so the de-facto border was probably the Drava river. XrysD (talk) 17:05, 31 December 2012 (UTC)

that would be brilliant! Peacemaker67 (talk) 22:49, 31 December 2012 (UTC)
G'day Peacemaker! I've had a go at this one too, but I'm not totally happy with the results yet. I'll tweak it a bit more and let you know when there's something to take a look at. XrysD (talk) 23:14, 2 January 2013 (UTC)

NDH Locator Maps[edit]

Hi, no problem doing these either :) They're quicker than the first request so I've done them and uploaded them to commons [[1]]. The demarcation line is from Tomasevich p.62. Will take a look at the other request today. XrysD (talk) 10:29, 1 January 2013 (UTC)

Great. Now, I'm no expert at this, but can I use this as a Location map (per "Category:Location maps of Europe") as well? Peacemaker67 (talk) 12:10, 1 January 2013 (UTC)
Hi, apparently I need to create a Location map NDH template for use with these maps. Can you give me the:
  • latitude of the top edge of the image using decimal degrees
  • latitude of the bottom edge of the image
  • longitude of the left edges of the image
  • longitude of the right edges of the image

That would be brilliant. Thanks a lot for your work! Regards, Peacemaker67 (talk) 11:09, 2 January 2013 (UTC)

No probs! :) OK, well the maps aren't in a Mercator projection so the edges aren't constant lat/long, but the mean values are:
  • LAT TOP = 47.00N
  • LAT BOTTOM = 42.25N
  • LONG LEFT = 14.25E
  • LONG RIGHT = 21.00E
The locator map for 1943-45 has also been updated to include the Kommissariat that Bojovnik requested. XrysD (talk) 23:12, 2 January 2013 (UTC)
Excellent, I've done a template for it now and added it to my ACR article. Given the Vienna line was no longer relevant after the Italians capitulated, could you take it off the 43 one? That would be great. Many thanks once again! You are a legend! Peacemaker67 (talk) 01:34, 3 January 2013 (UTC)

NDH[edit]

Sorry, I was reading your correspondence wih XrysD and accidentaly put this request on the wrong place. All the best,--Bojovnik (talk) 14:31, 2 January 2013 (UTC)

Hungary Territorial Gains Map[edit]

Hi Peacemaker! I saw your request to edit File:TeritorialGainsHungary1920-41.svg. I've had a look at it and I'm not sure why such a change is needed to be honest. The legend is legible even when the image is viewed in thumbnail size to me. And making it any bigger would make it over-scale for the image itself. What is the rationable behind the change. Also did you try to contact the author about this? I pm'd him but have not got a response. XrysD (talk) 15:55, 23 July 2013 (UTC)

Hi XrysD, thanks for replying. I have managed to fix it with a photoshop jpg in the meantime. I am about to start working on the invasion of Yugoslavia article, and I was wondering if you would be able to tweak File:Yugoslavia (1929-1939) location map.svg to show the 1939-1941 boundaries (post the Sporazum, ie including Banovina Croatia)? Regards, Peacemaker67 (talk) 02:21, 24 July 2013 (UTC)
Hi again. I've not got any maps showing Banovina Croatia so at the moment the answer is no. Also the maps I do have of the Banovinas 1929-39 don't agree with the existing map anyway! If you have some good quality source maps I can have a go though XrysD (talk) 11:38, 27 July 2013 (UTC)

Hungarian Occupied Yugoslavia[edit]

G'day Peacemaker! I have a good source map of Hungary 1941-44 so it should be possible to do something. What exactly do you want the map to show? Hungarian admin or former Yugoslav admin? XrysD (talk) 18:57, 7 August 2013 (UTC)

I think what we need is a map showing the four regions within the Hungarian occupation, with lines or fuzzy lines showing the regions, but also showing how the occupied areas were integrated into the Hungarian subdivisions. What do you think? Peacemaker67 (talk) 23:29, 7 August 2013 (UTC)
I just remembered you already asked about this earlier this year! I dug out what I'd done before, finished it off and now I'm happy with it. I've uploaded it now so have a look and tell me if it's what you want File:Hungarian_Occupied_Yugoslavia_1941_44.png. Cheers, XrysD (talk) 21:36, 9 August 2013 (UTC)
That looks really good. Do your source maps show the small slice of the western territories that were annexed to Reichsgau Steiermark? Peacemaker67 (talk) 23:25, 9 August 2013 (UTC)
Yes I have source maps that cover the parts annexed to the Third Reich. Would you like another map that shows that? XrysD (talk) 08:28, 10 August 2013 (UTC)
Could you add the little German annexed slice of northeastern Prekmurje to the map you've done? Peacemaker67 (talk) 09:48, 10 August 2013 (UTC)
Ahh... apologies, I thought you were referring to the more significant area to the south that is now part of Slovenia. As far as I was aware, Prekmurje was occupied by Hungary alone (while the regime lasted). My source maps in that area don't show any part of Prekmure annexed to Germany. Do you have a source map that shows it? XrysD (talk) 10:37, 10 August 2013 (UTC)
It was only four villages, apparently. So no. I am very happy with the map you've done, the German bit isn't strictly relevant to the article. There was a particular reviewer that requested it, I'll ping them and see what they think. Thanks again, Peacemaker67 (talk) 13:14, 10 August 2013 (UTC)

WWII images[edit]

All the files that I have uploaded from Znaci are in Public Domain, see the licence at the bottom of the page. I gave them template PD-Yugoslavia, because the photos are from Yugoslavia. But maybe it is better to put the same teplate as User:Ipos here ? --Mladifilozof (talk) 10:16, 2 July 2014 (UTC)

With respect, the online publisher isn't even clear. I mean who is "znaci", and what authority do they have to state that the images are PD? Do they own them? Did they publish them before 1966? There is no evidence that these images were published prior to 1966. The website wasn't published prior to 1966, so these images would have to have been published in a book or similar prior to 1966 in order to be PD. Regards, Peacemaker67 (talk) 08:06, 4 July 2014 (UTC)

File:Yugoslavia (1939-1941) location map.svg‎[edit]

Hello! Where is a problem with a hyphen? There are many location maps with a hyphen and I do not know of any problem. Regards, NNW 14:53, 4 July 2014 (UTC)

The WP MOS states dates should be endashed, and year ranges should be truncated. Everytime anyone ran a dash script over articles using the location maps they broke the syntax. Cheers, Peacemaker67 (talk) 03:59, 9 July 2014 (UTC)
First of all this is Commons, not en:WP, so WP:MOS isn't interesting at all. And if there is a problem with a hyphen in a file name please tell me why there is no problem with file:Sudan (2005-2011) location map.svg which is in use since 2012? NNW 06:48, 9 July 2014 (UTC)
Look, quite obviously I know this isn't WP, the logo in the corner is a bit of a giveaway. I'm telling you what was happening to this location map when it was used in articles on WP, which is where this file gets used. I asked for the name change so it wouldn't happen on WP anymore when people run dash scripts on articles. It's not that big a deal, surely? Peacemaker67 (talk) 11:41, 9 July 2014 (UTC)
I just asked for the reason why this file was moved. Reason: hyphen syntax is causing issues with articles on WP using this location map is irritating because I have never heard of such a problem before and there is no other location map with that problem. Could you give me link to an article where this happened? It might happen at other projects, too, and I would like to avoid problems. Btw: Moving this file destroyed the Yugoslavia location map name scheme with file:Yugoslavia (1929-1939) location map.svg and file:Yugoslavia (1946-1990) location map.svg. I try to keep names consistent and that's why I asked. NNW 16:25, 9 July 2014 (UTC)
OK, the first time I noticed it was here when someone ran AWB. You can see there was a script error after the dashes were fixed by AWB. See what I mean? Cheers, Peacemaker67 (talk) 04:15, 10 July 2014 (UTC)
