Libyan images[edit]

Hi! Most of the imagry of the Libyan protest/uprising/revolt are going to be copyright. Just upload them to en.wikipedia with a copyright notice and "non-free use rationale" Free is nice, but these images are so specifically related to the events that using non-free versions is not going to be particularly problematic.

File:Libyan Uprising - Gulf of Sidra.svg[edit]

Hey Rafy, I made some changes on the map today, and when I upload it the text looks very different from what you had, is it like that on your screen? It looks a lot bigger on my screen and I don't know why, I didn't touch any of the text from your edit. I am new to making .svg's and it always seems to export differently than what I had. I'm using Illustrator CS5 if that helps. Also - when viewing the picture in the commons page with the description it looks normal, but then when I view it in a direct link all the text turns from sans-serif to serif. Is this normal? Thanks. Infernoapple (talk) 21:47, 29 March 2011 (UTC)

I tried out inkscape and I just did my first edit on the map with it and it turned out great! Everything is exactly how it was, thanks a lot! Infernoapple (talk) 17:46, 30 March 2011 (UTC)

Make a map[edit]

A while ago I promised another user I'd help make a map, but I frankly suck at it, so do you think you could take over? The relevant threads are at w:User talk:The Evil Spartan/Archive 5#Map request and w:User talk:Magog the Ogre/Archive 10#File:European empires.png. It should be a relatively easy thing to do, but my brain is only throwing out farts when it should be coughing up a musical tune. Magog the Ogre (talk) 12:16, 12 May 2011 (UTC)

It shouldn't be that difficult. I could also make different colour outlines for each empire. Can you provide me with a list of changes to be done. --Rafy (talk) 16:12, 12 May 2011 (UTC)

The list of changes are in the two threads I linked for you. There are also some on the talk page, but I wasn't asked about those. Magog the Ogre (talk) 23:23, 12 May 2011 (UTC)

I just finished it. You can see it here.--Rafy (talk) 10:16, 14 May 2011 (UTC)

Yafran[edit]

Out of curiosity, from where did you get the 15 May loyalist capture date for Yafran? ~~ Lothar von Richthofen (talk) 15:52, 3 June 2011 (UTC)

Okay. I'm trying to place a more exact date for the capture of the city for the w:2011 Nafusa Mountains Campaign article. I don't think it fell back in April, when the first report of such events came out, mostly because continued fighting was reported in the city weeks afterward. ~~ Lothar von Richthofen (talk) 17:41, 3 June 2011 (UTC)

The rebels are advancing on Gharyan, so could you add an arrow accordingly?--Yalens (talk) 16:33, 11 July 2011 (UTC)
Latest news coming from there show the city firmly under loyalists control.--Rafy (talk) 17:33, 11 July 2011 (UTC)
I"m not questioning the control, I meant you should put an arrow because the rebels are moving toward the city.--Yalens (talk) 01:32, 12 July 2011 (UTC)
Do you have a source for a significant rebel advance? All I can find are reports of an eminent rebel attack on Gharyan...--Rafy (talk)
Well, they took al-Qawalish (as we learned later, apparently actually originally a pro-Gaddafi town in sympathy) some days ago, as well as some other unknown towns (I can get sources up for another if you want). As for the continuing gradual rebel advance towards Gharyan, its pretty much been saying that every day on Al Jazeera... advance to Gharyan cited here (first lesss-than-a-day-old google source, since you asked): [[1]]--Yalens (talk) 19:28, 12 July 2011 (UTC)

File:Sirt Front-ar.svg requires updating[edit]

Hi Kathovo,
Thank you for your contributions to Commons. I noticed File:Sirt Front-ar.svg is out of date. Could you update it? Thanks again.Sammy pompon (talk) 21:14, 20 July 2011 (UTC)

I have updated this one though it's not used any more in any article. BTW what was the difference in the map you uploaded? The only difference I could spot was a blue patch that you added over Misrata.--Rafy (talk) 02:25, 3 August 2011 (UTC)

Hi, can you please add Tawarga to rebel territory? It appears that you did it once, but then you updated it, and now it's not included. Can you please update it? Thank you!

It's a thumbnail issue which happen every now and then to heavily updated svg images. I'm afraid I can do nothing to help out as it's a technical issue with Wikipedia itself.--Rafy (talk) 19:14, 21 August 2011 (UTC)
Ah, that explains it :). In any case, the svg check at http://toolserver.org/~jarry/svgcheck/stable/index.php linked from Commons:SVG Check points out that your versions of the svg file could in principle cause problems because they insist on Arial and Ubuntu fonts without giving a fallback font. If you cannot find an easy way of including a fallback font using your svg editor, the fact that you seem to be using Ubuntu :) means that you can do this trivially from the command line:
sed -e 's/font-family:\([^\";]*\)/font-family:\1,sans-serif/g' \
Tripoli_uprising_nofallback.svg > Tripoli_uprising_fallback.svg
with appropriate choices of filenames, and then you upload Tripoli_uprising_fallback.svg.
Boud (talk) 21:39, 21 August 2011 (UTC)
I have changed all fonts to sans serif. The only warning that I get with svg check tool is " It appears you have a trailing space in one of your attributes". I have no idea what it implies but I guess it shouldn't be serious.--Rafy (talk) 11:24, 22 August 2011 (UTC)

Hi. Rebels say G still controls port. Will try to refind ref. Also hospital in Tajura, but they may have surrendered by now.

Wondering if G might be in the hospital suggests they haven't taken the hospital.[2]

Ah, here: tanks at the port (Al Jazeera blog reporting a rebel commander)[3]

Al Mansoura neighborhood under fighting per Al Jazeera live news a few minutes ago. Kwamikagami (talk) 11:09, 22 August 2011 (UTC)

Kwamikagami (talk) 10:49, 22 August 2011 (UTC)

✓ Done.--Rafy (talk) 11:24, 22 August 2011 (UTC)

Thanks. Al Mansoura is here,[4] west of Mitiga. Perhaps just as extension of Mitiga, as you did in the east to the hospital? Also, for all I know it links up to the port. When they say 'tanks at the port', they could just as easily mean the part of the port on the mainland, near Mansoura. (Though you had the Zawiat al Dahmani neighborhood red early on, so maybe not.) Kwamikagami (talk) 11:27, 22 August 2011 (UTC)

Oops! Al Jazeera is hard to follow: their video is out of sync with their narration. I think they meant that G had abandoned Mitiga, but fighting at Al Mansoura. Kwamikagami (talk) 12:07, 22 August 2011 (UTC)

So Mitiga is now under rebel control? How about the hospital?--Rafy (talk) 12:44, 22 August 2011 (UTC)
I don't know. I'm trying to remember the wording: they were showing G's compound on a map of the city, said G's forces had fled the military base (no name), but that there was still fighting going on - at which point they panned over to Mitiga - in Mansourah. Then they panned to the middle of the city. When I looked it up on Gmaps, that was Mansoura. So I assume that the "military base" was Mitiga, and there was a delay with whoever was doing the panning, so that when they said there was fighting going on and showed Mitiga, they didn't mean there was fighting going on in Mitiga. But that was several hours ago now. And they never mentioned the hospital. Kwamikagami (talk) 14:54, 22 August 2011 (UTC)

This is difficult to make out.[5] But it sounds as though the rebel they're interviewing says that they encountered fire when clearing out the last of the fighters in Mitiga, and then were able to secure it. (About 2 minutes in.) And before that shelling from what sounded like Mansoura. So I'm guessing that Mansoura (just east of the green at the port) should be green, and Mitiga red, but you'd better listen for yourself. Your ears may be better than mine. Kwamikagami (talk) 15:03, 22 August 2011 (UTC)

Most sources mention that the airport was bombarded by NATO yesterday and that rebels have engaged loyalists stationed there later. It seems that the speaker confirms that it have been secured.--Rafy (talk) 15:21, 22 August 2011 (UTC)

But then there's CNN, though this may be earlier info:

August 22, 2011 10:44 a.m. EDT[6]:

Rebel TV later reported that it had taken control of state TV, which had gone black.
Rebels on Monday afternoon pulled back from an area near Tripoli's Green Square [I've heard this several times]
Gadhafi's regime remained in control of at least three sites in the city -- a hospital, a military barracks and the Rixos hotel, where international journalists are staying, said El-Gamaty [the UK coordinator of the NTC]
Gadhafi's forces in Tajoura, where the hospital is located, were negotiating their surrender Monday morning, according to Jumma Ibrahim, a rebel military spokesman.

No mention of G's compound, but I assume that's not what they meant by "military barracks".

And no mention of the port. I would assume that those tanks came from G's compound, though there supposedly weren't many inside. But tanks drink a lot of fuel - what happens to them when they run out of gas?

BTW, I think you're right in connecting G's compound to the hotel. That's a single area of dug-in loyalist control from what I can tell. Kwamikagami (talk) 15:24, 22 August 2011 (UTC)

Sirte under siege?[7] Per rebels, but power cuts confirmed by Al Jazeera. From Misrata, maybe? Not clear if Benghazi has broken through Brega. Kwamikagami (talk) 16:38, 22 August 2011 (UTC)

Chaldean flag[edit]

Do not put speedy deletion tags, but rather nominate for an ordinary deletion (preferably all files in a single request), since there are a number of issues to consider (such as that the basic symbol was used in File:Victory_stele_of_Naram_Sin_9071_Star-sun-glyph.jpg / File:Iraq state emblem CoA 1959-1965 Qassem.svg long before 1997).

File:Semitic languages.svg[edit]

Interesting graphic, but I'm not sure what it seems to be saying when East Semitic is shown as a subgroup of Central Semitic... AnonMoos (talk) 16:38, 19 December 2011 (UTC)

I also hesitated before including the the area east to the Tigris. I guess the main reason was that the region spawned other Aramaic languages at later times such as Mandaic and Jewish Babylonian. The best thing to do imho is to merge Mandaic with Aramaic and strict the red outline to the Levant and northern Arabia.--Rafy (talk) 20:35, 19 December 2011 (UTC)
There's no problem with including different chronological periods in the same map, but you need to make clear the way in which you're doing so. If including the green loop within the red loop does NOT mean that east Semitic is a subgroup of central Semitic, then you need to state this very clearly... AnonMoos (talk) 02:37, 20 December 2011 (UTC)

File:Coat of arms (emblem) of Iraq 2008.svg[edit]

By the way, which font did you use for that file? I have the "Arabic7Kufi" font. which I've used in files such as File:Iraq state emblem CoA 1959-1965 Qassem.svg etc., but I'm not sure that it's all that great (some letters don't seem to have the full four forms, etc.). AnonMoos (talk) 04:28, 20 December 2011 (UTC)

I have used "AlBattar" which is also a Kufic font. I found it to be the closest one to the official script.--Rafy (talk) 11:44, 20 December 2011 (UTC)

File:Al-Jazira.svg[edit]

File:Orthodoxy by Country.svg[edit]

I saw the note asking for help [ I want to add India as oriental orthodox Christian, as there are many Oriental orthodox in India, specially in the Indian state of Kerala]. I edited the post as the spelling of Kerala was wrong.

Kerala is in India so in my opinion you could just edit the map to include India. Less than 1% of us are Orthodox, about 8% are Christians. Hope that helps.

The map depicts countries as a whole, if we depict Indian provinces then we should do the same for all second degree administrative regions.--Rafy (talk) 16:01, 3 March 2012 (UTC)

Levantine arabic in your map of Arabic dialects[edit]

Mar7aba ya Rafy

Your global map of arabic dialects is a useful one for wikipedia.

I conducted some documentary research on the levantine arabic dialect, which allowed me to build the map you see in the Levantine Arabic article (see references there).

The sub-dialect boundaries are only indicative, but as far as limits between levantine vs. badawi and mesopotamian are concerned, the maps, especially those of Syria by Behnstedt show very clear cut limits, closer to the Mediterranean than you show. I suggest you could use this information to update you global map once more.

By the way the maps you added lately are indeed much more accurate I might use them to modify "my map".--Rafy (talk) 03:00, 28 July 2012 (UTC)

Generous Request[edit]

Hello Mr. Rafy,
I really appreciate your work, you have made some very interesting and unique contributions to WP.
As you may know already, my interest in the Arabic language made me interested in your File:Arabic Dialects.svg which is why I ended up doing much independent research on the subject because I knew the map needed a little fixing. I already posted the finalized updated file twice, but you don't approve b/c it's not a real SVG. To be honest I modified the image using microsoft paint b/c using inkscape would take me a long time as I don't know how to use it. But I should point-out that the version I posted was well researched and well sourced as seen on the file's talk page. Although it is not 100% perfect (and it never will be), I truly believe that my updated version is much more accurate than the original one posted, but I just don't know how to recreate it as an original svg. That is why I came here to ask you nicely if you could please recreate my finalized version as an original svg to make it the best Arabic dialects map ever! Thanks and bye.

(by the way, I'll also post this message on your wikipedia talk page just to make sure you can see it, but if you read this first then don't bother reading the second one) Moester101 (talk) 01:15, 16 August 2012 (UTC)

Hi Rafy, I have uploaded my version on the File:Arab_World-Large.PNG. I made one last change to the file by correcting the name of arabic spoken on Cyprus from "Mediterranean" to its proper "Cypriot Arabic" and also fixed the southern boundary of Touareg Arabic. If you there's anything else just contact me. Thanks and bye. Moester101 (talk) 20:07, 16 August 2012 (UTC)

Misspelled words in "Christological spectrum.svg"[edit]

Hi. I noticed some misspelled Greek words ('qnoma', 'qnome', and 'prosoposn') in File:Christological spectrum.svg. I tried to use a translation tool to edit the labels myself, but the tool failed to create a valid SVG. May I ask you to edit the file yourself? I will be glad to help. — Alarob (talk) 18:21, 20 December 2012 (UTC)

Thanks. Are Qnoma and Qnome (in Syriac) loaned from the Greek, or do they have a different meaning unrelated to Greek gnoma? If qnoma translates gnoma, I think we should stick with the Greek when writing in English. — Alarob (talk) 22:59, 27 December 2012 (UTC)
AFAIK Qnoma (ܩܢܘܡܐ) is of Semitic origin non of the Syriac dictionaries I know says otherwise[8][9][10]. BTW Qnome is the plural form in Syriac.--Rafy (talk) 17:17, 28 December 2012 (UTC)

By the way, I think it might be "hypostasis"... AnonMoos (talk) 00:09, 7 March 2013 (UTC)

Qnoma has different meanings in Syriac, it can be interpreted as hypostasis in non-Chalcedonian theology but for the COE theologians it came to mean prosopon or nature. According to Brock this confusion was an important factor in the schisms of Ephesus and Chalcedon.--Rafy (talk) 16:35, 8 March 2013 (UTC)
No, I mean it's "sypostasis" now... AnonMoos (talk) 06:27, 9 March 2013 (UTC)

I removed the cropped part which reduced the size from 1.86MB to 376KB. The map portrays relations between Iraq and the PLO, and later the proposed Palestinian state, I found no reason to include Israel or Jordan.--Kathovo (talk) 09:08, 2 April 2013 (UTC)
