Logo of Are You Being Served[edit]

Article(s): en:Are You Being Served?

Request
A stand-alone logo of "Are You Being Served?", shown in a local non-free image, should be created. However, there are two versions: one without quotation marks and one with them. Background should be transparent; font color should be black as readable to readers; typeface should be similar to the series's title logo. --George Ho (talk) 05:39, 18 January 2018 (UTC)
Graphist opinion(s)

Hi @George Ho: Like this? Can you add proper categories and description to the images please? Amada44  talk to me 17:15, 19 January 2018 (UTC)

Almost close, Amada44, but the files should resemble the logo more. The letters are too thin, while the actual ones are thicker (probably by ink). Here's a better close-up (for the one used in series 2 and thereafter). George Ho (talk) 22:43, 20 January 2018 (UTC)
Here's the close-up of the series 1 logo. George Ho (talk) 22:58, 20 January 2018 (UTC)
And a close-up of the logo used for the pilot. George Ho (talk) 23:04, 20 January 2018 (UTC)
Amada44 pretty much got it right. The "ink" you speak of is a drop shadow in the pilot. The series 1 logo is different. You need to decide what exactly you want. The pilot logo (you already have it), the pilot logo with dropshadow and/or the series 1/series 2 logo. (series 2 is seems to have slightly different question mark) W3ird N3rd (talk) 00:39, 21 January 2018 (UTC)
I duplicated the file and the info into File:Are You Being Served pilot logo black colour.svg. I do want black-coloured logos resembling the ones used for the series, including one with quotation marks for the whole series 1. The first two need change as I already made the duplicate under the different title. George Ho (talk) 02:37, 21 January 2018 (UTC); edited, 02:38, 21 January 2018 (UTC)
For clarity's sake, I guess no need for the copy of white-colour logo containing drop shadows at the moment as it would be harder for most readers to see (unless someone else wants to do it right away). George Ho (talk) 02:54, 21 January 2018 (UTC)

I have not realized that creating an SVG file is a total drag. I recently downloaded Inkscape and thought that I can make it. However, something went wrong with the application, so my unsaved work was erased. Now I realize that I have to start over and all that. George Ho (talk) 08:04, 21 January 2018 (UTC)

Whew! What a relief. The program was kind enough to save the duplicate file under a different name when the execution of the application was terminated at one time. Now I would be able to continue working on the logo, but I should frequently save the work in case something like that happens again. George Ho (talk) 13:52, 21 January 2018 (UTC)

✓  Phew , I created my very first SVG version. Well, I replaced one version in File:Are You Being Served logo.svg. George Ho (talk) 01:00, 22 January 2018 (UTC)
I decided to upload hand-drawn replicas as separate files because I think I might have trouble being very precise. George Ho (talk) 03:48, 22 January 2018 (UTC)

@George Ho: I've added a version with drop shadow based on Amada44's version. What do you think? W3ird N3rd (talk) 15:48, 22 January 2018 (UTC)

@W3ird N3rd: The shadow versions look good :-) Amada44  talk to me 19:29, 22 January 2018 (UTC)
@Amada44: Thanks. :-) One thing I am curious about: what font did you use? W3ird N3rd (talk) 20:30, 22 January 2018 (UTC)
@W3ird N3rd: I used Bodoni 72 Smallcaps . Found it by chance. I had to adgust the 'G' a little, everything else fitted quite well :-) cheers, Amada44  talk to me 20:56, 22 January 2018 (UTC)

A lot of work here. It is supposed to be the "replacement map" for metrication pages; nevetheless it has a lot of issues. There are no South Sudan boundaries; the color palette isn't the best for visually impaired people. I'm not good at all at Perl and similar, could you help me?

Request
Just like upper request.--Rafic.Mufid (talk) 12:31, 2 February 2018 (UTC)
Graphist opinion(s)

@Rafic.Mufid: Are you planning on requesting any more clapperboard flag icons? It's likely easier for the workflow if you just request them all at once. The Qatar flag appears to be wider than usual, how would you like to see it integrated in the clapperboard? The clapperboard height could be reduced, the flag could be stretched, cropped or borders above and below the flag could be added. - Alexis Jazz 15:06, 2 February 2018 (UTC)

@Alexis Jazz: Actually there is not any plan! i just focused on videos this days, btw i checked now, i will appreciate you if you make clapperboard flag icons for Bahrain, Comoros, Djibouti, Kuwait (3-2), Libya (3-2), Oman (3-2), Somalia and Sudan (3-2). For Qatar you can use it's 3-2 version. --Rafic.Mufid (talk) 15:55, 2 February 2018 (UTC)
Both in this request and the one above file:Mplayer.svg should be used as base and the result file should be a true svg file. --Goran tek-en (talk) 18:59, 6 February 2018 (UTC)

  • Is Kiran215 really the copyright holder? Is he a member of that Maze Solution company? If not, the image should be deleted.--Carnby (talk) 22:12, 26 February 2018 (UTC)
@Carnby: Even if he works there doesn't mean he has the authority to share screenshots. And even if he does, Maze didn't create the map. Why did nobody spot this sooner? Just added copyvio to 115 maps. And now (although it doesn't really make much of a difference) do I spot the screenshots credit Openstreetmap. But only in part. These will just have to be replaced by Openstreetmap images. - Alexis Jazz 22:55, 28 February 2018 (UTC)

Signature for Queen Mariam and Tea Tsulukiani[edit]

Article(s): Mariam Dadiani (1783–1841)

Request
Dear friends, please vectorize signature of Queen Mariam. --100.37.91.23 21:36, 10 March 2018 (UTC)
Graphist opinion(s)
  • File:Mariam Dadiani signature.png. I didn't vectorise it, because in my opinion you'd lose too much of the subtle weights of stroke and variations etc. Someone might want to try to do a good vectorisation of this, but I couldn't "improve" on the png. There is a version with a "plain" background in the file history of the png here: [3] which you can revert to if you like.
  • I do hope she didn't have to sign many documents on any given day - her poor hand would be aching... (joking apart, maybe there's a better term for this than "signature"? "seal" doesn't seem right? something else?.. there is already File:Mariam Dadiani signature.jpg and File:Mariam Dadiani's signature.svg) -- Begoon 06:02, 11 March 2018 (UTC)

User:Begoon Thank you dear friend. It is good. Those jpg and svg signatures are for different Mariam Dadiani :) There was couple of them with same name so those 2 signatures are not hers :) Can you please SVG vectorize also if you can dear friend signature of Georgian Justice Minister Tea Tsulukiani from [4]? — Preceding unsigned comment added by 100.37.91.23 (talk • contribs) 12:44, 11 March 2018‎ (UTC)

  • Ah, yes, I see the "other Mariam Dadiani" was 17th century.
  • Ok, here's File:Tea Tsulukiani signature.svg, but you should really open new request(s) if you need any more. I'm actually not terribly keen on this trend we have of sticking people's signatures in their article as decorations, unless there's a particular significance to the signature itself, like there is with Mariam's, (and I don't really like vectorising them much because they are never 100% faithful that way). Face-smile.svg But you asked very nicely, so... -- Begoon 14:07, 11 March 2018 (UTC)

Thank you dear friend User:Begoon :) It is really good. — Preceding unsigned comment added by 100.37.91.23 (talk • contribs) 17:54, 11 March 2018‎ (UTC)

Invalid SVG issue[edit]

Article(s): w:Waste Isolation Pilot Plant

Request
Assistance needed in validating/fixing errors in three SVG files above.
Details of your request go here… So, I drew three SVGs in Adobe Illustrator, but they refuse to open in Firefox when you click on 'Original file' or open them again in Illustrator. When you click on them, you get this error:


<g id="layer1" transform="translate(-387.18712,-225.98514)" inkscape:label="Layer 1" inkscape:groupmode="layer">

I'm not sure exactly what the issue is and how to fix it. The thing that I wonder is if it's something to do with the two faces that were brought over from the original PDF which was had vector lines and drawings on it, and are present in all three files. (Jeff G. at the general help refereed me to here.)--The Navigators (talk) 20:35, 26 March 2018 (UTC)

, uploaded SVGs with added XML namespaces which were missing. @The Navigators: try validation again and decide whether the topic should be declared resolved. Incnis Mrsi (talk) 21:49, 26 March 2018 (UTC)

@Incnis Mrsi, The Navigators: I can now read all three as SVG files, thanks. However, the smaller radioactive symbols in File:WIPP Large Surface Marker - Repository Footprint.svg are too far to the right, there are some errors in wording in File:WIPP_Large_Surface_Marker_-_Controlled_Area_Boundry.svg, and the last two are showing validation errors.   — Jeff G. ツ please ping or talk to me 23:24, 26 March 2018 (UTC)
Yeah, I'm working on fixing the text, the spacing on it's a bit odd, going off the design in the PDF, and the inline radioactive markers don't help, I'll have that fixed in an hour or two. I'm also having issues revalidating them in W3C, but I can open it in Adobe and Firefox now. @Jeff G.: Was the typo you spotted that "Drill Ore Mining operations" in the 1st large paragraph, line 9? Were there any others besides that one? (Thanks for the catch on that.)--The Navigators (talk) 23:42, 26 March 2018 (UTC)
@The Navigators: Yes to both. Since you asked: the first "RADIOACTIVE" should be kerned better after the "O"; the top of the heads should be aligned; the first "KILOMETERS" should have a comma after it; the first "BURIED" should have a dot/period after it; "660 METER" should read "660 METERS"; "THIS DANGEROUS MATERIALS REMAINS" should read "THIS DANGEROUS MATERIAL REMAINS" or "THESE DANGEROUS MATERIALS REMAIN"; the second "CONTROLLED AREA" should have a dot/period after it; "MARKED AREA" should be left-justified; "MARKED AREA. THE SITE" should read "MARKED AREA, THE SITE"; and as this is about science, "2030 A.D." should read "2030 CE".   — Jeff G. ツ please ping or talk to me 00:08, 27 March 2018 (UTC)
@Jeff G.: These 3 files are copying signs laid out in a USDOE document: WIPP Permanent Markers Implementation Plan; this sign is on page 25 of the PDF, 19 in document number. The 'S' in "660 METER" is omitted in the design. "MARKED AREA. THE SITE" is how it's in the design. The "2030 A.D." is what's specified on the design. The "ORE", "MATERIALS REMAINS", "MARKED AREA." justification, "CONTROLLED AREA" missing period, errors have been fixed.--The Navigators (talk) 01:00, 27 March 2018 (UTC)
@The Navigators: Thanks, so now I should go edit for the DOE? :)   — Jeff G. ツ please ping or talk to me 01:09, 27 March 2018 (UTC)
@Jeff G.: Normally I'd say go for it, but honestly I don't know that I want the current crew in charge of the nation being made aware of WIPP existing. Thanks for the help editing the files.
@Incnis Mrsi: WC3 is still giving 2 errors on validation checks, but I can open the file in both Firefox and Adobe Illustrator, so I'll leave it up to you on how you want to proceed with calling it resolved or not.--The Navigators (talk) 02:01, 27 March 2018 (UTC)
