About Ronnie Peterson's Lotus[edit]

Hi. In Finnish Wikipedia user Bluto questionized description of this image. He states here that if that car is really Ronnie Peteroson's car, why car has number one on it. Peterson never won championship, but Emerson Fittipaldi did. Therefore user Bluto thinks that the car is really Fittipaldi's, not Peterson's.If you watch it really closely, you can see that on the info plate is years "1973-74", wich is some kind of prove that the car is Fittipaldi's. We know that Fittipaldi was second in Monaco GP in 1973. When you watch video "Formula 1, 1973 Grand Prix of Monaco" you can see that car number 1 was the second, so it was really Fittipaldi. Could you comment about this? --QWerk (talk) 10:38, 4 July 2009 (UTC)

Sorry disturbance that I caused. Peterson did drive in 1974 car one so it can be (or it is) Peterson's car. --QWerk (talk) 17:23, 4 July 2009 (UTC)

Re; My new tech data info on my maps[edit]

The map you saw was the first you saw with that info. I added it as Ariz added speed and gear selection to his maps. However, my version definitely doesn't look as sharp. One problem I have is the dual nature of my maps. Each map gets imported into Google Earth as a PNG overlay. This lets me test the accuracy and publish it as part of my corresponding KMZ set. The end result of that dual nature is that I need to support larger resolutions, not just small ones.

I am still debating whether or not to keep this data. If not, I will strip it from the existing image. (However, the F1 sectors will stay. In fact, with the extra space regained, I may add a sector legend and make the turn numbers larger.) One thing that won't happen is inclusion of F1 data for which the F1 site doesn't list any. Example: No data will be shown for Daytona as F1 doesn't go there.

You may wish to check out my site: wlps-ge-stuff.ucoz.com/. I have forum there and FAQs. I also maintain a blog there. Will (Talk - contribs) 23:26, 19 October 2009 (UTC)

Believe it or not, I am seriously considering taking down the stat data (but not the F1 sectors). I would be more likely to leave it in if WikiMedia allowed embedding of SVG and allowed use of JavaScript in those SVGs. Then the data would be visible only when needed. (Unfortunately, Google Earth doesn't have any support at all for SVGs—with or without JS.)
1.  Actually, I find that serif fonts are easier to read than non-serif fonts. Most are more likely to have a difference between characters like "I", "l", and "1". In this case, with me using Times New Roman, "l" and "1" do look similar, but enough different that I don't confuse them.
Compare:
I l 1
San Serif I l 1
Times New Roman I l 1
2.  I agree on the turn numbers. I started from scratch on them rather than coping a blank from one of my older maps in an attempt to make room for the new data. I added them before I had a real grasp on how much space the data would require. It wasn't until the map was up and I started seeing it at lower resolutions did I conclude I could have made the turn numbers larger. As for the circles, I would to see some whitespace all the way around the number. But SVG doesn't have a concept of a border with padding inside it (yet). So I have to manually adjust the size. Unfortunately, when I have Inkscape center one object on the other, they don't end up visually centered. I have also notice that some renders position text ever so slightly different creating more problems. I can't rely on the position of the number relative to the circle. I don't want to change the map until I decide if I am or am not taking out the data blocks.
3.  Like with the turn numbers, the turn names had to be moved to make room for the data. Without the data, I can move the turn names to better positions. As for the angles, I sometimes use them to better associate the text with that portion of the track. This is why 3 of the text objects are on paths (bent to follow the track). Bending the text allows it to be closer to the track than I could otherwise make it. Also, sometimes the angles help the track take up more of the overall map size than would be otherwise possible. Plus, the more I keep everything within the boundaries of the box formed by the track itself, the more accurate I can keep the map as I have to adjust the overlay in Google Earth less. As the map grows, I have to adjust the map's position in Google Earth. When that happens, I can create inaccuracies. In fact, as the map gets more complex, I have troubles seeing the track. That is why the map starts out as just the pit road and the track itself. Neither will be more than about 2-3 pixels wide at that point. I then tweak the layout until it fits. Then than have to hope that I don't have to move the overlay much.
4.  Accuracy is a big concern as I just mentioned. However, there more to that. You wanted thicker lines. Unfortunately, a thicker line is a problem. It makes things less accurate. That is exemplified to the extreme when you look at something like the Nordschleife. What happened there was that the pit road area was completely clobbered by the main track. I had to make the track line thinner just to show pit road anywhere near the actual location.
I do want to thank you for the input. I am still debating the best resolution. You are also not the only one unhappy with the change. Will (Talk - contribs) 11:47, 22 October 2009 (UTC)

Tip: Categorizing images[edit]

Hello, Pyrope!

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.

  3. Users must vote with an account meeting the above requirements either on Commons or another SUL-related Wikimedia project (for other Wikimedia projects, the account must be attached to the user's Commons account through SUL).

Hundreds of images that have been rated Featured Pictures by the international Wikimedia Commons community in the past year are all entered in this competition. From professional animal and plant shots to breathtaking panoramas and skylines, restorations of historically relevant images, images portraying the world's best architecture, maps, emblems, diagrams created with the most modern technology, and impressive human portraits, Commons features pictures of all flavors.

For your convenience, we have sorted the images into topic categories. Two rounds of voting will be held: In the first round, you can vote for as many images as you like.
