Rancagua's coat of arms[edit]

Article(s): en:Rancagua, es:Rancagua, and many others.


There is a coat of arms of Rancagua city in Commons, but it's very different from the original ones; this one and that one. Let me know if you could modify it to look more like the original ones, or re-create them. Best, (and sorry for my bad english). --Warko (talk) 20:21, 26 November 2013 (UTC)

Graphist opinion(s):

You show two different images as one original. So I have to ask which one would you like?
As I understand you want us to add the two images to one and that one would not be like any one of them and how should it look... You have to provide us with one look and then we can tell you if we can do it. --Goran tek-en (talk) 20:01, 8 January 2014 (UTC)
This one is the real coat of arms of the city, the other one is the coat of the Municipality. --Warko (talk) 00:32, 31 January 2014 (UTC)

National emblem of France (UN variant)[edit]

Article(s): National emblem of France


I searched Commons and Wikipedia for a vector image of the French emblem (UN variant) and all I could find is that version without the Legion d'Honneur plus some minor differences. I think a more precise vector version should be created and uploaded separately. Thanks in advance.--Carnby (talk) 21:10, 21 January 2014 (UTC)

Chain of office of papal chamberlain[edit]


Article(s): en:papal chamberlain, articles on papal heraldry, as element in individual COAs etc.


An SVG drawing of the chain of office would be great. The chain is the chain of office of a papal chamberlain (with papal keys and tiara). For existing drawings of the keys and tiara, see Category:Coats of arms of the Vatican City. Msbmt (talk) 22:03, 4 June 2014 (UTC)

Uniform coats of arms for Croatian regions[edit]

Article(s): Regions of Croatia, Croatia proper, Istria, Dalmatia, Slavonia


Requesting new versions of the first three coats of arms above, modified to use the same escutcheon shape and the same shades of colour. Recommending the escutcheon shape and the blue from the fourth image, the coa of Dalmatia (which doesn't require modification). The third image (Istria) is raster, as there doesn't seem to be a proper SVG coa of the region (the heraldic goat isn't supposed to be walking as in here). Thanks in advance. --DIREKTOR (TALK) 13:19, 8 June 2014 (UTC)

Graphist opinion(s):

Why? Anyway the Dalmatia escutcheon is not well formed, in addition Dalmatia coa is also unheraldic. I suggest to give it to an heraldic project. Perhelion     13:39, 8 June 2014 (UTC)
Well the three coas were all taken from various sources that do not relate to the actual regions. One is taken from the Croatian republic coat of arms, the other is the Istria County coa.. I.e. their shape is wrong for the purpose we have in mind over there, which is simply representing the regions with their respective traditional symbol, and it would be rather well for the coas to appear less haphazard.
Naturally, the escutcheon shape was merely a suggestion. A well formed escutcheon would be preferable to one that isn't such.
But please do clear that up. What do you mean exactly that the Dalmatia escutcheon isn't well formed? And what makes it unheraldic? Also, where precisely do you suggest I take the Dalmatia coa? --DIREKTOR (TALK) 13:57, 8 June 2014 (UTC)

Reverse color choice for population pyramids[edit]

Category:Population pyramids of counties of the United States


Article(s): (example use)


Use a bot to reverse the color choice - blue for boys, and red for girls. There are hundreds and hundreds of these to fix. It would help, at the same time, to make the male/female symbols larger. --Delphi234 (talk) 18:41, 10 August 2014 (UTC)

Graphist opinion(s):

Have you a plausible reason for this? Yes, it are for sure more as over thousands (I've already edited some). PS: If yes I would create a bot acc for this. User: Perhelion (Commons: = crap?)18:55, 10 August 2014 (UTC)
Well these are all United States counties, and since about 1940, the United States has standardized on blue for boys, pink for girls. Red is close enough. Having blue for girls will certainly be confusing. Delphi234 (talk) 04:29, 11 August 2014 (UTC)
Sorry, no mass change without reputative source. User: Perhelion (Commons: = crap?)11:30, 18 August 2014 (UTC)
Historically blue has been a female color. And I doubt the boys = blue; girls = pink thing is enshrined anywhere in US law, it’s just a preference of some hospitals. By your logic we’d have to edit every map on Commons to make Great Britain red.—Love, Kelvinsong talk 00:01, 28 December 2014 (UTC)
If this project were to be undertaken, I would also suggest simultaneously fixing font problems in these pyramid diagrams. Many of them use fonts that the Wikimedia Commons SVG-to-PNG graphics engine cannot render correctly. A 'bot could easily perform font substitution in the SVG file text. I've fixed a few dozen manually, but there are so many of them I eventually gave up. — Quicksilver@ 20:13, 19 October 2014 (UTC)

Turkish flag[edit]

Article(s): Turkey, Flag of Turkey


Please insert the white hem that's supposed to be on the left of the flag according to en:Flag of Turkey#Construction. It was added once but reverted for some reason. (The hem is present in this version, but according to that page the sizing of that image is wrong.) --Qzekrom (talk) 16:09, 21 August 2014 (UTC)

Graphist opinion(s):

Is there proof for the white hem actually being a part of the flag? The "Construction" section of the EnWP article is unsourced, and while the government page sourced elsewhere in the article includes the same table of measures, it's not clear the "Uçkurluk" (translated as "hem") is actually part of the flag design. In fact the flag image on the government page does not include a white stripe at the hoist. SiBr4 (talk) 17:14, 21 August 2014 (UTC)

Flag of Nizhny Novgorod.svg[edit]

Article(s): A lot: all articles currently using the wrong version and theoretically all using the png version.


Flags of the city of Nizhny Novgorod (File:Flag of Nizhny Novgorod.png) and Nizhny Novgorod Region (File:Flag of Nizhny Novgorod Region.svg) have noticeably different designs of stags. Five years ago, a user took the stag from the SVG version of the Region flag and called it File:Flag of Nizhny Novgorod.svg – which was totally incorrect. However, by now it is used across all the Wikipedias... I have renamed that file to File:Flag of Nizhny Novgorod Region (simplified).svg, leaving a redirect for now. So I would appreciate if somebody made an svg version of File:Flag of Nizhny Novgorod.png and uploaded it at [1]; the coat of arms (File:Coat of arms Nizhny Novgorod.png) can be converted as well. An "official" image can be found at http://xn--b1acdfjbh2acclca1a.xn--p1ai/vlast/ofitsialnaya-osnova/gerb/ . Thanks. --YLSS (talk) 08:03, 5 September 2014 (UTC)

Thanks, Goran tek-en! Overall, your design seems to be closer to the official one than the one by AlexTref871 currently at File:Flag of Nizhny Novgorod.svg.

Flag and Coat of arms of Kafr El-Sheikh Governorate[edit]

Article(s): More than 200 articles, most in Arabic Wikipedia


I request this flag to be SVG version, this is the official flag of Kafr El-Sheikh Governorate in North Egypt (official website). and make SVG coat of arms, it's the same design, just put the boat of flag in a circle (as colour of the boat), and background the same colour of background of the flag (example on the building)

Note: The correct colour of rice spikes (not green as PNG version) that same colour of the boat, as in governor's photo, and so simile design of spikes... Thanks a lot... --Faris El-Gwely (talk) 02:53, 27 September 2014 (UTC)

Graphist opinion(s):

Stock-brush-red.svg Request taken by Fred the Oyster (talk) 02:26, 30 September 2014 (UTC)
Will this do? There are differences with your png, such as the vertical stripes on the sail and the colour of the rings. The photo with the flag in tha background shows no stripes and the rings appear to be grey rather than yellow. I've also tried to match the colour of the boat with the flag, but it was hard to sample any one colour that matched properly. --Fred the Oyster (talk) 11:10, 30 September 2014 (UTC)
  • Thank you for your great work. all colours true ... just I've a note, the color of sail is white. Is it possible to make episodes more dark more dark? and can you cut enlighten from the sea in left to be like right part (like this or this).
last request and sorry for inconvenience, can you make another SVG file and put the emblem inside a circle (colour of circle is the same colour as boat), this is coat of arms of governorate. Thank you for everything... Faris El-Gwely (talk) 14:03, 30 September 2014 (UTC)
I realise that we have a translation issue going on here and I apologise for not understanding your instructions properly. By "episodes", do you mean darken the rings on the sail? And by "enlighten" do you mean the 'highlights' on the bow and the stern of the boat? Do you want the left side of the boat to be a mirror image of the right? I'm guessing as I'm not getting what you are describing as "cut enlighten from the sea in left to be like right part". As for the CoA, that will be no problem once we get these little tweaks sorted --Fred the Oyster (talk) 14:16, 30 September 2014 (UTC)

Fashion Ilustrations for Costume Designs.[edit]


2 Requests
  1. Can someone look over the basic form, and tidy up any anomalies in the SVG?
  2. In respect of the costume design (which I drew from the form, can someone produce a better version, which could be used to potentially support costume design materials, for costumes based on the basic design shown? ( It would also be nice to have the archetypical 'sister' maids to accompany it. --Sfan00 IMG (talk) 13:13, 25 October 2014 (UTC)

Pre or post-op? --Fred the Oyster (talk) 16:34, 25 October 2014 (UTC)
Nominally, pre, but with a bust form in use.. Sfan00 IMG (talk) 16:39, 25 October 2014 (UTC)
Without wanting to be thought of as politically incorrect (which I am most of the time), I'd suggest flattening out the curve of the butt, increasing the shoulder and chest width marginally, the same with the thighs, reducing the bust, also marginally and maybe introducing a slight groin bulge (a straight forward curved path like the eyebrows could do that). The face could stay the same as that's purely cosmetic anyway. Mostly it could be done with the existing SVG and just moving the relevant anchor points in or out to taste. I took out most of the cusp points and replaced them with curves so it should be relatively easy to do without introducing too many distortions or angular points. I'd volunteer to do it, but I'm right in the middle of a couple of larger jobs (one that's already been delayed a couple of weeks) --Fred the Oyster (talk) 17:07, 25 October 2014 (UTC)

Pattern Uploaded[edit]

3. I've uploaded a basic pattern for the 'French' Maid design. It will need some tweaking before it's directly usable on fabric.. — Preceding unsigned comment added by Sfan00 IMG (talk • contribs) 22:43 26 October 2014 (UTC)

As I said, I can't do anything at the mo', but I can recommend a couple of techniques that will make life a lot easier for you when doing vector graphics. These are especially useful when doing symmetrical shapes that have curves.
  • If it's a pair of things you need to do like legs or arms. just do one of them, then when that's done to your satisfaction reflect it, et voila you have matching legs. Likewise, when you have a symmetrical shape like a face, only do half of it. Again when you are satisfied with that half, reflect it then join the two halves together. This way all the curves will match on both sides instead of struggling to get the bezier curves identical.
  • If you want to get things to fit inside another shape, e.g. the fishnets in the diagram above. There are two ways in which you can do it.
  • Either design the leg the way you want it and use it as a clipping path to contain the fishnets so nothing goes outside the lines of the leg.
  • The other alternative if you aren't too sure about clipping paths/masks is to use pathfinder operations, i.e. use one shape to cut out a section of another shape to create a new third shape. E.g. The legs and the fishnets. Now I'm not sure how the exact procedure goes in Inkscape, but it will be close to this... 1. create the leg. 2. create the fishnets. It doesn't matter how big so long as it's wider and taller than the leg. Then copy and paste a copy of the leg on top of the fishnets then subtract the leg from the fishnets (ie all that's left of the fishnets was what appeared inside, intersected, the leg shape) so that only the fishnets remain. Those fishnets will now exactly fit the inside of the leg so all the tiny nooks and crannies will fit and there won't be any gaps or protrusions.--Fred the Oyster (talk) 23:57, 26 October 2014 (UTC)

Graphist opinion(s):

@Rezonansowy: Is this getting close? Admittedly the main colour of the halo will take some trial and error to take into account of the opacity, but it's late and I'm tired.--Fred the Oyster (talk) 00:13, 9 November 2014 (UTC)
@Fred the Oyster: It's much better, but not similar yet. Could you invite someone else to work on it? Thanks! --Rezonansowy (talk) 11:42, 11 November 2014 (UTC)
I think, this logo should be deleted from Commons. It's officially registered in U.S. Copyright Office, so it's does meet the threshold of originality(the complexity of the accurate vectorisation also confirms this). We can't alter this logo, and Microsoft Corporate Logo Guidelines did't allow use it in way that Wikipedia does. Vectorization will not convert copyrighted logo to free-licensed.

I don't know what operating system you run but Chemtool is a program on Linux and it has a test version for windows here. Into this program you can import files x.mol, edit if you need and then export as x.svg. At this link you can search and download x.mol files for each compound. If you don't run Linux I'm sure you can find a similar program for your OS.
It's much better if you download them your self as you have the different formulas and you know what is right or wrong.
Also if it's that many you are more motivated to do them all. --Goran tek-en (talk) 15:37, 24 March 2015 (UTC)

I think you're not getting any takers in part because you want a graphic for a article that doesn't even exist, it isn't even in stub form. It is now June and the article still does not exist, which leads me to believe that even if the graphic was created it would never get used. I recommend you to get the article in at least stub form then come back and make your request. Offnfopt(talk) 20:47, 9 June 2015 (UTC)

Revision scoring as a service logos[edit]

m:Research:Revision scoring as a service
I'd like to request a higher resolution for the gif. Perhaps 250 or 300pxs (or higher really). ALso I would like the swap of blue and red on both files. -- とある白い猫 ちぃ? 00:45, 9 June 2015 (UTC)
Also, please modify File:Revision Scoring as a Service logo.svg such that The green triangle looks more like a stylized letter A where the top triangle of the letter contains the red I and the area under the triangle forms the continuation of the letter i forming Ai or abbreviation of Artificial Intelligence, which is the point of our project. -- とある白い猫 ちぃ? 16:55, 15 June 2015 (UTC)
Graphist opinion(s)

@とある白い猫/15: ✓ Done - I used the same number of frames as the previous GIF to keep the file size down. I could have made it smoother with more frames but that would have doubled the file size. The updated logo along with the GIF are in the above gallery. Offnfopt(talk) 20:55, 15 June 2015 (UTC)

@Offnfopt: Do you think you can make the gears background transparent as well? -- とある白い猫 ちぃ? 08:01, 16 June 2015 (UTC)
SVG and the PNG-24 file formats allow for a variable level of transparency, because of this it is easier to use anti-aliasing to make smoother looking edges while maintaining the ability to have transparency. GIF on the other hand just has one level of transparency, it is either 100% transparency or 0%, there is no ability for 50%, 25% etc transparency. Because of this it is hard to have smooth edges of curved elements in a picture when using a transparent background, this causes the edges to be more pixelated. So I can't have a transparent background on the GIF because the edges would be pixelated and look horrible. Offnfopt(talk) 00:41, 17 June 2015 (UTC)
Interesting. The animation would be used to show "working" as ORES can take quite a bit to run when training a model. Do you think you can do an [[:File:SVG animation using SMIL.svg]-like animation? -- とある白い猫 ちぃ? 02:59, 17 June 2015 (UTC)
I'm still fairly new to SVG so I haven't yet experimented with any animation aspects of it, so it is not something I will pursue at this time. Did you see my reply further down about the logo? Offnfopt(talk) 08:19, 17 June 2015 (UTC)

@とある白い猫/15: Take a look at the upload history for File:Revision Scoring as a Service logo-rev2.svg there are 5 revisions of the logo, see if any are what you had in mind. If not even just providing a rough mspaint sketch can help me to get it how you want. Also just for fun I animated that last revision of the logo I uploaded. Edit: Note: I can remove the borders I added if they are undesirable. -Offnfopt(talk) 02:51, 16 June 2015 (UTC)

@Offnfopt: The inspiration behind Revision Scoring logo was File:Squaredcircle.svg which is the glyph of the w:Philosopher's stone. I like the final version of File:Revision Scoring as a Service logo-rev2.svg (shown) overall but I wonder if it'd be better for the red circle to remain within the triangle of the letter A. Would that make it too small? Also I think the borders make it feel a bit weird though I am not really sure. What do you think? -- とある白い猫 ちぃ? 09:56, 16 June 2015 (UTC)
Perhaps something more like [6] inside the circle (swap orange with green and i made out of the gaps in red). Feel free to stylize. :) -- とある白い猫 ちぃ? 13:07, 16 June 2015 (UTC)
Another direction could be using File:Revision Scoring as a Service logo.svg for basis but using the white square to read Ai similar to [7]. -- とある白い猫 ちぃ? 13:10, 16 June 2015 (UTC)
@とある白い猫/15: Take a look at the upload history for File:Revision Scoring as a Service logo-rev2.svg, there are more revisions for you to look at. The latest is the same as before but without the borders. The other revisions show some examples of trying to do as you requested with the "i" integrated into the "A" character. Offnfopt(talk) 00:41, 17 June 2015 (UTC)
I am discussing this with my peers. You gave us so many awesome options. :) We may iterate once more over one of the designs you put forward. -- とある白い猫 ちぃ? 11:22, 17 June 2015 (UTC)
@Offnfopt: Do you think you can rotate the outer circles so that it resembles the configuration of the community logo (aka meta wiki logo). I am also curious if you can play with this design a little, 4 fragments are strange but also perhaps the tail of the i can be a bit longer, longer than the A so that its more prominent - there seems to be some white space around all logos too :/ . Also, feel free to come up with a radical design too. I'd not want you to be confined to our suggestions :) -- とある白い猫 ちぃ? 20:19, 18 June 2015 (UTC)
I made the changes you requested. Offnfopt(talk) 06:56, 22 June 2015 (UTC)
Great! Actually I think one problem with all proposals (and the current logo) is the surrounding circle and how it is mis oriented. Do you think you can apply a similar change to the current logo? IE such that the edges of the triangle touch to the middle of the 3 circle fragments? If you have the time I would request the same for the other candidates too. -- とある白い猫 ちぃ? 18:00, 28 July 2015 (UTC)

Can I please have a photograph (or realistic graphics) of a Type A USB plug with the double-sided option (internet picture).
What I would need is this, just without copyright/license concerns. Might complete the family of Category:USB_pinouts, however should not be too abstract/schematic but show its distinctive physical feature. Therefore, a photograph might be more suitable than graphics. Thankyou. --Patagonier (talk) 12:20, 13 June 2015 (UTC)

Graphist opinion(s)

I don't quite get what exactly this request is for. Because all logos in question contain merely typeface, you can upload the original source to Commons with the {{pd-logo}} license tag. In this particular case I agree that it's unnecessary to insist on the "text" over "path" version of the SVG files due to the inconsistent font metrics which misrepresent the company's logos. -- Sameboat - 同舟 (talk · contri.) 03:06, 2 August 2015 (UTC)

Spectrum of Fluorine[edit]

Radiation astronomy/Violets is a lecture at Wikiversity that contains the copyrighted fluorine spectrum image. The fluorine spectral lines cannot be copyrighted because they are in the Public Domain at NIST.
As Penyulap is apparently not available can someone create a Penyulap-like spectrum for fluorine as was done with boron. I would rather have a Free Use or Public Domain spectrum for fluorine than the Fair Use copyrighted image if possible. An emission spectrum is okay. --Marshallsumter (talk) 20:53, 7 July 2015 (UTC)
Penyulap based the spectra on Teravolt color and line display included in the gallery.
Spectra based on others, for example, are included in the gallery and would also be okay. --Marshallsumter (talk) 23:03, 30 July 2015 (UTC)

Category:Transport Alphabets of the United Kingdom Cleanup[edit]

These were recently uploaded, I was wondering if someone here on Commons was willing or able to convert the glyphs shown into stencil artwork for use on UK road templates across Wikimedia projects --ShakespeareFan00 (talk) 16:22, 9 July 2015 (UTC)
Longer term, It would be nice to have an "Open Font" (OTF, UFO?) version of these. The dictratics for Welsh signs are detailed in a seperate PDF which hasn't been uploaded.
From that information it should in theory be possible to create a Transport Unicode (at least for Latin based scripts) by the creation of the relevant diacritical additions.. Any font authors here?
Graphist opinion(s)

Generally I would be interested. But I don't see the need for this ttf here. Would you please explain for which kind of projects/tasks the font is applicable here? -- Maxxl² - talk 11:32, 23 July 2015 (UTC)

It's the UK road sign font, stencil art or a font based on these would be useful in implementing more accurate road sign graphics for WikiProjectsShakespeareFan00 (talk) 14:02, 26 July 2015 (UTC)
Having inspected the images of Category:SVG road signs in the UK with 319 excellent files I doubt that there is a huge demand for new and more accurate drawing in the future. Please keep in mind that it takes several man days of intensive work to transfer the PDF-data to a true type font by hand. The font itself can't be uploaded here as part of the SVG-code, but has to be transformed into path elements by Inkscape (or another editor) beforehand and is then rendered to a PNG file by librsvg to be displayed. If there is a realistic need for 100+ SVG files to be generated within one year one could consider to invest the labour in this project only if the text elements cant be retrieved from a PDF file. -- Maxxl² - talk 15:09, 26 July 2015 (UTC)

Graphist opinion(s)

Unless one of the graphists happens to be very knowledgeable in this area of anatomy, I think you'll need to tell us what is wrong with the diagram in much less technical language.  :) NikNaks talk - gallery - wikipedia 11:40, 14 August 2015 (UTC)

DS has asked me to comment here. This reference indicates that another synapse should be present. The red line that descends from number 1 should go much lower—to C8-T2. This is at the bottom of the neck/top of the thorax. At that point, there is a synapse within the spinal cord. For consistency, that point should be marked on the diagram with a red dot, similar to number 3. That synapse is called the ciliospinal centre [of Budge]. From that point, the red line should move forwards (towards the right of the diagram) out of the spinal cord up the sympathetic chain to numbers 2 and 3. Axl (talk) 13:13, 14 August 2015 (UTC)

Stock-brush-red.svg Request taken by Goran tek-en (talk) 18:02, 23 August 2015 (UTC)

@DragonflySixtyseven:@Axl: The svg file is NOT a proper svg. It's a bitmap image with in a svg file which is bad.
Do you want me to redraw this as a svg file?
Also the reference to the google book doesn't give me any information that I can understand/use. --Goran tek-en (talk) 18:14, 23 August 2015 (UTC)
It appears the previous version of the file was a proper SVG, but had flowtext issues and was replaced by the current embedded-bitmap version. There's no need to redraw the image yourself if you base the new file on the archived version. SiBr4 (talk) 21:29, 23 August 2015 (UTC)
Thanks, I have seen that and will use one of the earlier versions and fix the text issue. --Goran tek-en (talk) 17:57, 24 August 2015 (UTC)
Goran, thank you for helping. Never mind the Google book reference. Do you understand my explanation above? Axl (talk) 20:59, 24 August 2015 (UTC)
@DragonflySixtyseven:@Axl: OK now you can look at a draft with the new information in it. I tried my best to understand and I looked at other images also. The original illustration was done in such a way that I had to redo it to be able to edit it easily, and to me it was to wide front-back so I made the version above more compact front-back.
Should there not be explanations on what the other stuff there is or is this just for people with knowledge in the subject?
Should not the other stuff have more "body/texture" in it so it's easier to understand?
So give me feedback on what to change and so on, thanks. --Goran tek-en (talk) 19:08, 27 August 2015 (UTC)
Goran, thank you for making this draft. It is certainly an improvement.
I am not sure that the double line descending from number 1 is helpful. I think that it would be better as a single line. Perhaps the red line should mirror the curve of the back of the neck, similar to the spinal column. Even though the line does descend lower now, it is still not low enough. Also, I now realise that numbers 2 & 3 (the stellate ganglion and superior cervical ganglion) are also too high. This picture gives a better idea of the levels of the ganglions.
Regarding the "unlabelled" parts, there are parts of the brain, the carotid artery, and the muscles around the eye. If you think that the picture would be improved with these labelled, that would be fine. Axl (talk) 09:10, 28 August 2015 (UTC)

@Axl: I have zero knowledge of this subject, please remember that when explaining.
At the beginning of this request there is a link ciliospinal center which is supposed to be correct and in the image there are two lines going up, that's why I drew like that.
You refer to the spinal column but I can't find it in the new image you provided.

  • In the new draft you can see that I have joined the structure (blood vessel?) between 4 and B, is this correct?
  • I have added other things (and more surface) also but I'm not sure I have understood it right so you have to check the draft thoroughly.
  • As you can see I have added letters to the parts that I wonder what is this and I guess I'm not alone. That information has to be added into the information but right now I wonder what is F (part of the brain...)?

To an illustration like this you can work with lights, shadows and texture as much as you want but I think we should keep this in this more simple style.
So look at this draft and give me feedback, thanks. --Goran tek-en (talk) 18:49, 29 August 2015 (UTC)

@DragonflySixtyseven:@Axl: I have tried to get feedback from Axl (I also left a message at his talkpage) but haven't got it so far. Can you DS or anyone else you know help me with this so I can complete this request, thanks. --Goran tek-en (talk) 17:10, 27 September 2015 (UTC)
I am sorry for the delay in my response.
The image in "Ciliospinal center" shows two separate nerve fibres/paths to the eye. These two paths remain separate throughout; one goes to the upper part of the sphincter while the other goes to the lower part.
You are right that the spinal column is not explicitly marked in the image. This is because it is hidden by the overlying muscles. However the descending part of the path (marked D in your new image) is in the spinal column.
I suppose that the blood vessel (marked B, leading upwards) is the common carotid artery leading into the internal carotid artery. I am unsure if "B" is supposed to represent the branching of the subclavian artery; if it is, it is far too high. In any case, the pink line (nerve fibres) should not curl forward around a branch of the blood vessel.
On your diagram, "F" is the cerebellum. (It should occupy more space, but it is not really necessary on the diagram.) Axl (talk) 18:45, 28 September 2015 (UTC)
@DragonflySixtyseven:@Axl: Sorry for the delay I had to do other things. Now you can look at a new draft. I have made the changes I understood but this one "The image in "Ciliospinal center" shows two separate nerve fibres/paths to the eye. These two paths remain separate throughout; one goes to the upper part of the sphincter while the other goes to the lower part." I didn't understand what to do with. Please give feedback in relation directly to my draft as I have zero knowledge of the subject when you use specific words for it, thanks. --Goran tek-en (talk) 18:47, 3 November 2015 (UTC)

I don't think the rainbow stripes are intrusive. If you're determined to remove them, you should fork a new image instead of overwriting the current one. To do that, open the SVG file in Notepad++ and remove codes from line 17 to 93 and save as a new SVG file. -- Sameboat - 同舟 (talk · contri.) 03:49, 30 November 2015 (UTC)

I guess you removed the wrong codes. I uploaded my revision, but due to recent Wikimedia cache issue you may not see the result (PNG render) immediately.
