I think it should be   (v3BRIDGEq-), no? Also, 50px?.. YLSS (talk) 13:51, 12 October 2014 (UTC)

Your concerns[edit]

I saw from this comment, indicating you requested deletion of this image.

If you had used a {{speedy}} deletion tag, shouldn't I have automatically received a "heads-up" on my talk page that you had left that speedy deletion request? So, do you have any idea why I didn't receive a heads-up of your concerns?

I saw your other comments on my contributions on User talk:Fastily. In the interests of collegiality I encourage you to address your concerns to the contributor who you have a concern with first.

Google cache contained a copy of the information template. Checking it I can see that, In this particular instance I did make a mistake, it was not an image from the 1940s, but an image from the 1980s of a restored 1940s bus. Over the last 9 years I have made a large number of uploads, maybe over ten thousand, and I would be surprised if there were no errors in the other 9,999 uploads I made. But I do not believe I am more prone to human fallibility than any other contributor.

You didn't say why you thought my uploads, from flickr, or elsewhere, should trigger a concern that my contributions could be of particular problem. As per my suggestion above, if you have general or specific concerns about someone else's uploads I suggest the first person you should try voicing that concern to is the uploader.

I don't have any idea why you didn't receive notification of the {{speedy}} request.
And yes, I probably should have raised the point directly with you. Unfortunately, I've seen instances in the past where individuals have indiscriminately siphoned images into Commons, and didn't stop until they were blocked. Apologies for lumping you into that group: I didn't take a close look at your uploads while searching for other JBC images. Useddenim (talk) 01:41, 19 October 2014 (UTC)
  • Thanks for the prompt reply.

In   (vAKRZ) &   (uvAKRZ), was it intentional that the stripes interlace? Or should the road be completely below the rail – BSicon MROADq.svgBSicon vSTR.svg  – like in   (SKRZ-G2) ? (Also, WRT the last one, I added the dashes – right?) YLSS (talk) 14:45, 29 October 2014 (UTC)

The interlacing was deliberate: after all, the tracks and the road surface are at the same level. WRT   (SKRZ-G2), I omitted the dashes on purpose, since passing is not allowed approaching a railway crossing (at least in North America). Useddenim (talk)15:51, 29 October 2014 (UTC)
Hahah, that didn't even air to me ;) Yes, it's the same in Russia, but well, I don't think we need to accentuate that in the icons: first, there's the issue of scaling, and the part with restricted passing may well be contained within the shorts white stubs next to the rail track; and second,   (SKRZ-G2) if used alone (without   (RP2e) & similar) was not perceptible as such. Cool? YLSS (talk) 16:15, 29 October 2014 (UTC)
Yah, we’re cool. Does the newer version look any better? Useddenim (talk) 21:52, 29 October 2014 (UTC)
Pretty much the same. If I didn't know, I wouldn't notice any difference at 20px. YLSS (talk) 22:05, 29 October 2014 (UTC)
