genericized WikiProject Scouting emblems[edit]

Article(s): WikiProject Scouting

Request
please create free-use [[WikiProject Scouting (name of country).svg]] using the genericized emblems, thanks (none of these match existing emblems, but they will be clearly recognizable as to meaning)… Creativity is welcome, I just laid out the basic outline!--Kintetsubuffalo (talk) 12:04, 6 October 2016 (UTC)
Graphist opinion(s)
A Wikigraphist friend e-mailed me and asked "why do you need this? wouldn't the flags be enough?" Good questions-here's why:

1) https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Wikipedia:WikiProject_Scouting/Userboxes -we've been having some users make their own userboxes for their own country's Scouting, which is great except they've been using their country's copyrighted logos. ☹ This covers every country we have members in. I would think flags are okay, but they are using the emblems.

2) there are Scouting WikiProjects in several languages, so these could be used by multiple Scouting WikiProjects

3) the colors for Germany are not Austria, they are based on the original German Scouting https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Deutscher_Pfadfinderbund

alcohol content[edit]

Article(s): en:Unit_of_alcohol#Quantities

Request
The axes of this graph could be expanded greatly so as to cover beer (lower %, higher volume) and spirits (higher %, lower volume).

Sensible axes to encompass these drinks would probably be 3-50% ABV, and volume 20mL to 500mL. The x-axis should also have a label stating the units of ABV, (i.e. %) --147.109.124.149 13:55, 10 October 2016 (UTC)

Graphist opinion(s)

The horizontal axis is labelled "Alcohol content, by volume". But no units are given. I suspect that what it shows is not volume, but percentage of alcohol, calculated by volume. If that is right, a better label would be "Percentage alcohol (ABV)". Maproom (talk) 09:45, 17 October 2016 (UTC)

4 Game Boy logos -- SVG-ize and add transparency[edit]

Article(s): w:en:Game Boy line, w:pt:Linha Game Boy, and w:es:Línea Game Boy

Request
Please SVG-ize these 4 logos and convert their white backgrounds to transparent backgrounds.
The transparency would improve the appearance of the table in w:en:Game Boy line, w:pt:Linha Game Boy, and w:es:Línea Game Boy, because the current white background is contrasting with the gray color that is used in the "wikitable"-style table headers. (these articles contain other GB logos, but the ones that I did not mention are already SVG files with transparent background)
I am just asking for SVG-ization because these images already have the box saying "This logo image could be recreated using Vector graphics as an SVG file." and maybe it could be part of the process of removing the white background anyway, but for the current stated purpose, I feel that having a transparent background takes precedence over SVG-izing; I guess you don't need to SVG-ize if you don't want, though that would be appreciated. Thanks in advance. Daniel Carrero (talk) 01:38, 23 November 2016 (UTC)

@George Ho: I've uploaded a new version with the background parameter set to white, but my browser didn't acknowledge the parameter, so I added a white rectangle in the back of the image. Be sure to bypass your cache in order to view the newest version. --Ivi104 (talk) 10:36, 14 February 2017 (UTC)

✓ Done. There was a black rectangle in the file at line 974. I've no idea why it was there. Maybe it had a purpose, so instead of removing it, I've set its colour to 'none'.

Replace electric motor by electric stove[edit]

3-phase electric motor is used as load, which is very bad example because load is symmetric there and it doesn't use neutral wire; also 3-phase electric motors are very rare in direct contact with human.

Hi, I'm an active participant of the Wikiversity project, and I think there is something about the current Wikiversity logo that could be improved. I'd like to make a proposal to update the logo, but unfortunately I'm not skilled enough to do the logo myself, so I resort to you. Basically, what I notice is that the current logo has the "dome" sort of facing down, as if it were a giant sphere rising from behind the building, rather than a dome sitting on top of the building. Once you notice, the way to fix it becomes obvious. The sphere should be "rotated" so that the equator is parallel to the top of the building (a bit like this but maybe with the lines above the equator curved upwards, due to perspective). Makes sense? Can anyone do this, pretty please? Thanks!!! --Felipe (talk) 15:02, 1 February 2017 (UTC)
Graphist opinion(s)

I agree with you. I gave this a try, but it's really not the solution but just one approach, an idea or concept to consider. I changed additional things that I find not ideal in the current version, which is probably too much of change. My decisions were:

  • In my opinion, the proportions of the logo could be less wide and thick. So I changed the proportions somewhat. This might not be desirable, not sure.
  • I prefer no perspective at all in such a logo for the sake of simplicity.
  • This being among few project logos with gradients, I don't think they add anything here.

So this leads me to this: Wikiversity Logo Concept.svg. Cheers, — Julian H. 16:14, 1 February 2017 (UTC)

@Julian Herzog: Awesome, thanks for the quick reply! I fully agree with you about perspective and gradients not being necessary for such a simple logo. However, I'm afraid that the change in proportions and the addition of color will spark too much unnecessary debate. If you keep it as similar as possible to the current one, it will surely pass smoothly. --Felipe (talk) 18:05, 1 February 2017 (UTC)
@Felipe Schenone: I guess that would then look somewhat like this: Wikiversity Logo Concept II.svg. — Julian H. 08:29, 3 February 2017 (UTC)
@Julian Herzog: It's perfect!!! I posted the proposal here and I will spread it through the Wikiversity mailing list. If you can think of any other relevant channels, please let me know! Thanks, thanks, thanks!!! --Felipe (talk) 22:18, 4 February 2017 (UTC)
@Julian Herzog: Hi again! The proposal for a new logo is gaining support, but one user complained that the thickness of the line of latitude should be the same as the line of longitude. In the first logo that you posted, the thickness of the lines was the same. Did you change your mind for some reason? Would it be too much to ask to produce a third version, with equal thickness in the lines? Thanks again! --Felipe (talk) 03:57, 12 February 2017 (UTC)
@Felipe Schenone: Sure, here you go: Wikiversity Logo Concept III.svg. The reason why I made the vertical bars wider is that there is no line of the narrow width in the logo that is vertical, that somehow made them look too thin to me. — Julian H. 11:13, 12 February 2017 (UTC)
@Julian Herzog: It's perfect man, thanks again! I updated the proposal with the new vesion and it has gained another supporter! --Felipe (talk) 11:28, 14 February 2017 (UTC)
