Wikipedia logo in cheatsheets


Request: The wikipedia logo within all these cheatsheets render the term वि in the extreme left of the wikiglobe incorrectly. Specifically, the ि should appear before व with the dotted circle being replaced by the latter. The correct rendering can be seen at File:Wikipedia-logo-v2-en.svg. Odder was kind enough to help me over IRC and try to fix File:Cheatsheet-en.svg, and it's png thumbnail renders correctly. But W3C validation (I'm not sure I did it right) seems to suggest that there may be errors which cause the svg to render incorrectly. (It seems to render incorrectly for me across three browsers and inkscape).

Also, the original reason which led me to find this error was the need to translate the cheatsheet into hi. I only know enough svg to translate text in it. I can't fix (or change) the logo. Would someone please upload a version of the en cheatsheet replacing the logo with the hi logo with a correct rendering? I'd then be able to translate the text and upload a new version. Thanks a lot.--Siddhartha Ghai (talk) 01:49, 13 April 2012 (UTC)

Note:File:Cheatsheet-en.svg seems to be rendering correctly (despite the validation errors). Also, most of the cheatsheets are probably using the old logos. Updating them to use the new svg globe should probably fix the problem.--Siddhartha Ghai (talk) 10:36, 15 April 2012 (UTC)
URL reveals no validation errors... AnonMoos (talk) 13:20, 15 April 2012 (UTC)

Graphist opinion(s):
My observations are that in the SVG cheatsheets all the text is outlined so is no longer text editable. The other thing is that I couldn't get them to render properly in Illustrator. The globe in the cheatsheet wouldn't render at all even though the globe in the standalone V2 globe rendered perfectly. The PDFs (at least the English one anyway) seem to have been put together in InDesign so the text is editable in Illustrator, but whoever created it used a raster image for the globe.

All in all though I believe the problem is that the main bulk of the cheatsheet has been put together in Inkscape then the globe has been pasted into it. It's at this point I think things have gone wrong and Inkscape has created a non-conforming SVG (no doubt thanks to the Sodipodi code inside it. Considering all the problems I believe that the cheatsheet needs to be either created from scratch in Inkscape by someone who knows what they are doing, or in Illustrator 15.1 which creates much more standard code (and 50% of the size of the Inkscape code too). --Fred the Oyster (talk) 09:21, 13 April 2012 (UTC)

I don't think that whether a file opens in Adobe Illustrator is the arbiter of SVG correctness, and Adobe Illustrator can have its own problems of placing huge amounts of garbage in SVG files. However, try the latest version of File:Cheatsheet-en.svg. If there's a major problem with the file, it's that each separate letter is put into its own <tspan>...</tspan> element. By the way, the small Wikimedia logo at bottom left is an embedded raster image... AnonMoos (talk) 13:52, 13 April 2012 (UTC)
Versions of Illustrator prior to the current v15.1 did put an unnecessary amount of code in the SVG, especially if the file was tagged to remain editable in AI, but even so there's still nowhere near the amount of bloat that Inkscape creates. In any case, I wasn't using AI as the final arbiter of whether the file was coded correctly, I used the W3C validator. Having said that though, if an SVG can't be opened in AI, then there's going to be every likelihood that something is wrong with the file.
The fact remains though that these files would be better being re-done from scratch regardless of what software is being used. --Fred the Oyster (talk) 17:06, 13 April 2012 (UTC)
I'm sorry, but that's simply not the case. It's true that Inkscape can carry along a bunch of useless definitions of gradients and such from previous file versions if not purged, but Adobe Illustrator often overwhelms a tiny amount of code with a huge amount of useless garbage, as I've seen repeatedly over the last 5 years or more, from 2006 to 2012. I'm far from an enthusiastic defender of Inkscape (which has its own annoyances, such as "flowtext" nonsense), and I don't actually use Inkscape to edit SVG files (only to test and convert them), but when it comes to garbageflooding internal to an SVG file, Inkscape yields the crown to Adobe... AnonMoos (talk) 22:03, 13 April 2012 (UTC)
We shall have to agree to disagree then. Along with the fact that there isn't a single one SVG file created by Inkscape that I haven't been able to reduce in size up to 75% by the simple expedient of using Illustrator. I simply make sure that I don't tick the box requesting that I keep the file in Illustrator editable format, I keep the precision to 1 point and "use fewer tspan elements". I suppose it all comes down to how one uses the program, and after 20 years I feel I have a reasonably good idea on how to do that. --Fred the Oyster (talk) 08:25, 14 April 2012 (UTC)
If you can get Illustrator to emit lean and clean code, then that's great for you personally, but there's strong accumulated evidence that many others are not able to use the program as successfully... AnonMoos (talk) 03:19, 15 April 2012 (UTC)
For example, a case in point: File:MultinationalForce-IraqDUI.svg. --Fred the Oyster (talk) 11:04, 16 April 2012 (UTC)

Graph needed from a spreadsheet

 Not done

Request: I have a Excel spreadsheet of air pollution data in China that I want to have turned into a graph. I think the R programming language is quite a nice way of doing it? I can email the data or should I dump it somewhere on the web? -- Alan Liefting (talk) 00:19, 24 April 2012 (UTC)

Graphist opinion(s):What type of graph? You can use the data in excel to create an excel graph which can be copied as an image and uploaded here. You can use SVGmaker to export the graph to SVG. Then you'll have to remove the watermarks that SVG maker puts(pretty easy in a text editor/inkscape). Best if you can upload the excel file somewhere.--Gauravjuvekar (talk) 10:24, 24 April 2012 (UTC)

Illustrator's graphing function can do exactly that, and relatively easily too. What sort of graph would be required? --Fred the Oyster (talk) 14:23, 24 April 2012 (UTC)
Even simpler would be to open the excel file with Libre Office and export the chart as SVG.--Gauravjuvekar (talk) 10:12, 25 April 2012 (UTC)
And horrible code it produces too. Not to mention the limited formatting and customisation too. --Fred the Oyster (talk) 11:18, 25 April 2012 (UTC)
Actually I just did some experimentation with LibreOffice (it's been a while since I've used it) and the results and the procedure are truly horrible. First off you have to create the graph, then you have to click inside the chart and do a Ctrl-A (if it lets you that is), then you have to copy and past the result into either Libre Draw or Inkscape. At which point you discover that (depending on which chart type you chose) what you have copied and pasted is actually a bitmap that has to be traced if you don't want the SVG to be an envelope containing a single raster graphic. So basically, not the simple solution you suggested. --Fred the Oyster (talk) 11:43, 25 April 2012 (UTC)

I would have hoped that Commons would have some sort of commonly used graphing methods in place by now. I suppose most stuff comes in as images rather than the raw data that I am presenting. Alan Liefting (talk) 01:31, 26 April 2012 (UTC)

Alas no, other than maybe encapsulated in a PDF (which is sort of frowned upon). If you let me know what sort of graph/chart you want and where I can download the spreadsheet from (email me the details if you don't want to make them public) and I will happily do what's required. --Fred the Oyster (talk) 21:04, 26 April 2012 (UTC)
Alan Liefting -- there are several graphing or quasi-graphing methods, but they're on the Wikipedias (where they're useful for presenting data in articles), not on Commons. See en:Help:EasyTimeline_syntax, en:Wikipedia:Graphs_and_charts, etc. -- AnonMoos (talk) 18:54, 27 April 2012 (UTC)

Vectorise Copenhagen Coat of Arms

Request: Please can you redraw the above image and vectorise/save as an svg image. A previous attempt was made at File:Greater coat of arms of Copenhagen.svg. but that had multiple issues (the positions need to be rather exact). If you could save over the second file that would be easier.
This other outline may help as a guide: [1]. Thanks. --000peter (talk) 22:58, 13 June 2012 (UTC)

Graphist opinion(s):

Not accurate in SVG to implement, respectively maybe not without pay. It would be a complete unofficial redesign. -- πϵρήλιο 08:17, 14 June 2012 (UTC)

Request for assistance

Request: File:The_Cutter's_Practical_Guide_1898_Edition_Part_1.djvu has a number of 'pattern' plates, It would seem reasonable for these to be in an appropriate vector format, hence I am requesting the assistance of the graphics lab in converting them, in a consistent style.

Assistance in getting the Fashion plates and other illustration in this work converted would also be appreciated. Sfan00 IMG (talk) 23:47, 4 January 2013 (UTC)

Graphist opinion(s):

Sounds fun :). I'll prepare the first of these pattern plates and give it to you to comment. Other illustrations in this work are in my opinion too complex to be coverted to SVG. Stock-brush-red.svg Request taken by Jembezmamy (talk) 10:41, 23 February 2013 (UTC)

I've drawn the first pattern. There is one little rendering error ("The" in a title isn't italic), which I'll fix in a future. Now I have a new idea: wouldn't it be practical to make this SVG interactive, so everyone could just type in their measurements and print their own pattern in 1:1 scale? I can write an open source JavaScript code that makes it possible. I think it would be nice. I will make sewing much easier for amateurs. I'll consult this also with my friend, who is a fashion designer, to find out whether it is worth the effort. --Jembezmamy (talk) 12:04, 2 March 2013 (UTC)

Gaza Ceasefire

Request: Could someone who is a better SVG wizard than me please use the data (but not the design) from to create new graph(s)? // Liftarn (talk) 20:12, 28 February 2013 (UTC)

Graphist opinion(s): What type of graphs do you want exactly? NikNaks talk - gallery - wikipedia 14:38, 28 March 2013 (UTC)

Five bar charts and one pie chart. The first bar chart needs to be stacked. // Liftarn (talk)
Five bar charts? Of what?? Also, if you provide a link to the page on Wikipedia, we can create charts that way, which would probably be better in this case. NikNaks talk - gallery - wikipedia 18:52, 31 March 2013 (UTC)

Correct capitalization in Croatian Water cycle diagram

It concerns this image: File:Watercycle-croatian.jpg an official translation of the USGS water cycle image - User:Kubura says the capitalization is wrong. He says:

  • "They can copy the text as it is located on the older Croatian translation; but, not to use the capital letters, but the "small" ones. In the title, first word is written with the capital letter, the other one not. (Hidrološki ciklus, Vodni ciklus, not Vodni Ciklus"

The older translation he referred to is hr:File:Kruženje vode-hidrološki ciklus.png which was translated by a Wikipedian from English to Croatian. It corresponds to an older official USGS water cycle image. The USGS itself had an older official translation at File:Watercyclecroatianhigh.jpg

Please use File:Watercycle-notext.jpg and/or File:Watercycle-notext-boxes.jpg as the basis for the new version and save it into a new file

The newer Engish version (basis of Watercycle-croatian.jpg) is File:Watercyclesummary.jpg. The older English version (basis of the Wikipedian-made Kruženje vode-hidrološki ciklus.png and the official Watercyclecroatianhigh.jpg) is File:Water cycle.png

Thanks WhisperToMe (talk) 11:53, 28 June 2013 (UTC)

I use the original directly, is the original better now ? I also remove unnecessary text from it. Penyulap 12:14, 28 June 2013 (UTC)
Thank you for making an edited version of that one. Unfortunately it was not what I was looking for. I would like a version of the new image File:Watercycle-croatian.jpg but with modified text that fits what Kubura is looking for, and with altered capitalization. WhisperToMe (talk) 14:41, 28 June 2013 (UTC)
Followed Kubura. like this ? Penyulap 15:54, 28 June 2013 (UTC)
Yes. Thank you very much :) - I'm checking with Kubura to see if he likes it WhisperToMe (talk) 22:08, 28 June 2013 (UTC)

Kubura gave me some more ideas for fixes:

  • "[5] Nice improvement, thank You for the prompt reaction. I would add (evaporation + transpiration) under "evapotranspiracija" (as in picture from, since that coined word confuses, so it needs explanation.
  • Also it is needed "zračenje sunca" (=Sun radiation) near the Sun.
  • Further: "ponornica", "izvori", "podzemni dotok", as on picture from
  • To replace: "voda u atmosferi" (=water in atmosphere) instead of "atmosfera".
  • To replace: "jezero" (=lake) instead of "površinske vode" (=surface waters).
  • No need to write twice "zalihe podzemne vode". One can be "tok podzemne vode" (groundwater flow), the other "zalihe podzemne vode" (groundwater storage). As here [6] on the original site.
  • This picture contains error in grammar case: zalihe podzemne vodA", correct is zalihe podzemne vode.
  • Compared with the original picture, "plant uptake", "flora and fauna", "vents and volcanos" and "dew" were not translated and they are missing."

WhisperToMe (talk) 04:46, 29 June 2013 (UTC)

a full and complete list of captions would be very nice, but for now, I take a rest from this request. Penyulap 05:24, 29 June 2013 (UTC)
Ok :) - I'll relay the info to Kubura WhisperToMe (talk) 06:48, 29 June 2013 (UTC)

New svg needed

We need one similar to File:PDmaybe-icon.svg for Template:Not-free-US-FOP, Template:Non-free graffiti, and similar templates. The one now is PD/Copyright but what we need is Copyright depends on jurisdiction, future case law, or future DCMA etc. I was thinking of either the scales of justice or a broken infinity symbol: Category:Unbalanced scales of justice, Category:Infinity.

New svgs: ESRB icons

Someone at help desk wishes we would update Category:Entertainment Software Rating Board to match . Should we email them to see if they have svg versions already?--Canoe1967 (talk) 16:58, 4 August 2013 (UTC)

ESRB have updated there icons will someone overwrite the icons on wikimedia commons too so they are up to date by making them in SVG and split the older ones out to a historical folder? Kind regards. ... -- 19:47, 4 August 2013 (UTC)
Whoever wants to work on this request, I'd recommend to move the old files (and e.g. append (old) to the filename) and upload the updated versions with the current filename so it is automatically updated across the articles which use those images. --Patrick87 (talk) 17:15, 4 August 2013 (UTC)
I was thinking the same thing because of all the projects they are on. I just sent them an email to see if they have svg versions for us. If they don't respond in a few days then commons will have to make their own. I think the png ones came from their pdfs here: --Canoe1967 (talk) 17:50, 4 August 2013 (UTC)
Email received: They only include .jpg. They don't have .svg.
They would also like me to let them know when the .svgs are done. Should I hit them up for a WMF donation to get them faster? We could even do all of their graphics for donations if they are paying people now. (joke)--Canoe1967 (talk) 18:34, 9 August 2013 (UTC)

OK, I uploaded the official PNG versions (@Canoe1967: Maybe you can update the source information if appropriate) and found a source for most of the new icons including the newly introduced "interactive elements" icons.
There are however still three missing rating category icons: File:ESRB 2013 Early Childhood.svg, File:ESRB 2013 Adults Only.svg and File:ESRB 2013 Rating Pending.svg. Most parts should be possible to recreate with the help of the old SVGs, but the texts at the top changed so it's not easy to correctly rebuild them. If anybody feels like it, then go for it! Otherwise we can still wait for official SVGs. --Patrick87 (talk) 23:39, 19 September 2013 (UTC)

Hydroelectricity diagrams

Article(s): Electricity in Sri Lanka, List of dams and reservoirs in Sri Lanka, and/or List of power stations in Sri Lanka. And possibly future articles at Laxapana Complex and Mahaweli Complex. I am currently writing a large number of inter-related articles, and these diagrams could be of high value in improving article quality.


Could someone help me vectorize these images, and upload to the filenames above, please:
It's ok to change the styles, just need the basic diagram. Note the slight hight differences of each reservoir. Thanks a million! Rehman 13:06, 21 January 2014 (UTC)

@Rehman: Now you can look at the two drafts here LaxapanaComplex-SriLanka and here MahaweliComplex-SriLanka and give me feedback, thanks.
I would need you to give me the following information for the upload when they are Done on both;
  • Category/ies
  • Description
--Goran tek-en (talk) 15:10, 22 January 2014 (UTC)
It's great work! But I'm afraid there are some late changes My draft on Mahaweli made with MS paint. Changes:
  1. Added another dam + some river adjustments
  2. Labels (with matching colours)
  3. River surface to be the same colour as the reservoir surface, as well as the river labels.
  4. Change the thick line to normal thickness. Their diagram is actually misleading as they are all basically the same thing.
  5. Turbines outlets to reach back to into the river (immediately before the reservoir), as they really do.
  6. The turbines to be equal distance from the top of the vertical axis.
  7. Transparent background.
  8. And finally, if you could reduce the overall diagram height (by reducing dam/reservoir heights, etc), it would be great.
Once again sorry for the steep changes and delays. All this time I was actually trying to get in touch with the Mahaweli Authority officials, as there is few clear info online. I will get back to you on the Laxapana separately. Million thanks! Rehman 16:03, 23 January 2014 (UTC)
@Rehman: Have a look at a new draft MahaweliComplex-SriLanka, maybe you have to reload the page or empty your cache to get the new draft.
  • You should check the names with a red underline of the HPS's as I think you had some wrong in your sketch.
  • I don't understand what you mean by: "Change the thick line to normal thickness. Their diagram is actually misleading as they are all basically the same thing."
  • Do you mean horizontal axis as I did it? "The turbines to be equal distance from the top of the vertical axis."
  • To change the overall height of the illustration means a lot of work without disturbing relations, shapes etc so it's not something that I just do like that.
Give me feedback on this, thanks. --Goran tek-en (talk) 19:52, 24 January 2014 (UTC)
That's great, thanks. Just one tiny thing: The river beds after Rantembe Dam and Moragahakanda Dam. Please ignore the thick line thing, I forgot to backspace it off... The underlined spellings are also correct. For the Laxapana diagram, I will post a separate request, as I think there needs to be more updates done on that...
For the page desc and categories, just put "Laxapana hydroelectric complex, Sri Lanka." and "Category:Hydroelectric power stations in Sri Lanka". I will expand from there. Thanks again. Best regards, Rehman 02:08, 25 January 2014 (UTC)
  • You wrote "Just one tiny thing: The river beds after Rantembe Dam and Moragahakanda Dam.", what is to be changed with them?
  • You wrote: "Laxapana hydroelectric complex, Sri Lanka." but I guess you meant "Mahaweli hydroelectric complex, Sri Lanka."?

I will wait for your replies on this before uploading. --Goran tek-en (talk) 13:01, 25 January 2014 (UTC)

Haha, sorry, too many things in my head. For the first point, the river beds are missing in the images. For the second, yes you're right, I meant Mahaweli. :) Rehman 14:27, 25 January 2014 (UTC)
Now you can find it here MahaweliComplex-SriLanka.
If you want me to do the other so they look the same just contact me directly, thanks. --Goran tek-en (talk) 15:27, 25 January 2014 (UTC)

Article(s): en:Melanotan_II


I would like to be able to use this file on the Melanotan II article, where it is sorely needed as a replacement for the current vague and confusing skeletal formula, but there are some issues with the SVG that need to be corrected before that can be done.

Signature vectorisation

Hi, I know the image above is not one of the sharpest/cleanest ones out there, but I would greatly appreciate it if someone can vectorize the signature just after the typewriter text. Thanks. --Wylve (talk) 12:41, 12 January 2014 (UTC)

Graphist opinion(s):

You are only talking about the signature inside the red line on this image:
File:Farewell letter to Soviet Russia Signature-of-maybe-Sam-Jackson 2.png ?
And do you know the signers' proper name (my guess is Sam Jackson) ?
Jaybear...disc. • 13:48, 18 January 2014 (UTC)
Yes, I am talking about that signature. The signer's Sun Yat-sen. --Wylve (talk) 08:38, 22 January 2014 (UTC)
It's a little tricky to extract the signature from the partly very darkened background ...
What's about the extract "Extracted Test-Signature" in the gallery on top?
(I've additional aligned the 3 parts of the signature, due to the original documents' little rotation;
... you can see the differences between Version (2) and (3) in the file-history of the Test-Signature)

Vector coat of arms for Dalmatia

Article(s): Dalmatia, Kingdom of Dalmatia, Coat of arms of Dalmatia, History of Dalmatia, Croatia in union with Hungary, any of the myriad battles involving Dalmatia, castles, etc.. I hope to use the new image to overwrite my own (rather widely used) file, seen above. No question the image will be used in good measure.


Hello all. If anyone feels like giving it a shot, am requesting a proper vector coat of arms for Dalmatia. It basically amounts to putting together a heraldic golden lion head: #1 front-facing, #2 maned, #3 frowning, #4 roaring, and #5 "langued" (that is to say the tongues are visible). The technical terms are "azure, with three crowned golden leopards heads affrontes Or, langued in gules". To anyone inclined to acquiesce to the request, I suggest following the appearance of the lions (in particular their crowns) from File:Wappen Königreich Dalmatien.jpg (shown above) - but with less elaborate and wavy manes. I myself recommend basing the manes on this image.
Further, I would be very much obliged if a crowned version of the coat of arms could be put together, for use as the coa of the Kingdom of Dalmatia (though this is ofc secondary to the above request). The crown could preferably be the same one as used on the lions, i.e. the version above the lion heads in File:Wappen Königreich Dalmatien.jpg. As regards the appearance of the shield itself, I recommend the classic rounded shape, as seen here.
Finally, an older version exists, which is red instead of blue, with the lions (i.e. heraldic leopards) in white, wearing golden crowns, their tongues in gold as well ("gules, with three silver leopard heads affrontes Argent, langued and crowned Or"). Though this is just a colour change, and I reckon I could manage that myself if I give it a proper try. Either way though, I hope it will be possible to colour the crown on the lion heads, and their tongues, separately from the actual heads. Thanks in advance. --DIREKTOR (TALK) 15:25, 25 January 2014 (UTC)

Graphist opinion(s):

I don't really follow you and let's just concentrate on the first part.
You want us to take one of the lion heads from the top right picture, make a vector version of it and put it in three times as the top left picture? Let me know if I understood you right. --Goran tek-en (talk) 21:31, 30 January 2014 (UTC)
Yup. With the further request that the manes need not be as luxurious and "wavy" as in the right (and left) image. I pretty much ascribe that to the general fancy look of the old coas (see manes here for a better example in that particular respect). Otherwise, the above right-hand image is best. A couple additional points:
  • Its also not necessary to copy exactly the "3D" look of the lions on the right image, which I believe is achieved by them having "shadows".
  • The crowns on the lions are, in some versions, colored differently than the lion heads themselves, so it would be great if they and the (red) tongues could remain separate "objects" (is that the right term?) to facilitate future colour changes. (The crowns should, ofc, remain in contact with the heads)

I will show you a draft in time and we will take it from there. --Goran tek-en (talk) 18:41, 3 February 2014 (UTC)
My thanks. Just a note: I'm an enWiki editor, primarily. I'll certainly be checking here often, but probably will reply sooner if you link my username in you comment or post on my Commons talkpage. --DIREKTOR (TALK) 22:44, 3 February 2014 (UTC)

@DIREKTOR: Now you can look at a draft here. Give me feedback on it. The crown and tongue are in separate layers as you requested.
Eventually I will need the following;

  • Name of the file
  • Description
  • Category/ies

to be able to upload it as a new file or if you want me to upload it as a version of the existing. --Goran tek-en (talk) 16:25, 7 February 2014 (UTC)

It looks great. In terms of feedback I'd be happy to see following further modifications (pls be aware these are just suggestions on possibly improving what is really an excellent job):
  • The mouths of the lions are framed only by their mane, which gives them a somewhat disembodied, "cartoonish" look. The chin is a bit hard to perceive. The heads in general can be larger in proportion to the shield. See this precursor coa from the Early Middle Ages (where the lions are facing right and are not 'affrontes').
  • The mane looks great, but it appears more as a "beard". Its really a detail, but I would maybe add a "tuft" or two pointing upwards (not downwards) at the point where the mane ends near the ears.
  • The proportions of the crown appear slightly off. If you have a look at the above right-hand image, the three leaf-like "outcroppings" on the crowns (worn by the lions in the coat of arms) are farther-off from each-other than appear on the SVG image.
Besides the changes to the model itself, this is a coat of arms that's well over a 1,000 years old, so, as I mentioned before, there are some alternate historical versions that I think shouldn't be all that difficult to bring about. Three that I know of:
  • There is a version exactly like this one, but with the shield crowned (with the same crown the lions use). This is for use as the coat of arms of the Kingdom of Dalmatia. Hoping this will be a slightly modified crown than that one in the current version (per above), but again - its a suggestion.
  • And there's the Venetian version, which is like this one, but the shield is red, whereas the lions, their crowns, and their tongues are gold (so the whole lion head is gold on a red shield, presumably the gems in the crown can remain white, though).
Hope I've managed to be clear enough, thanks again for your work. Rest assured its appreciated, and will be widely used. In fact this will probably be 'the' coa of Dalmatia from this point on. As for the name and description etc., I figure we can just overwrite the left-hand image I myself uploaded. --DIREKTOR (TALK) 13:58, 9 February 2014 (UTC)
@DIREKTOR: I did it in that manner "cartoonish" because you didn't want that much 3D-look but now I have made the changes and there is two versions for you to look at.
and give me feedback on which you want and/if there is anything to change.
  • Once we have agreed on one look we can talk about the other versions, so get back to me, thanks. --Goran tek-en (talk) 14:07, 11 February 2014 (UTC)
When I said "shadows" I meant "shadows" the lions as a whole cast on the shield - I certainly don't object to using shadows within the lion heads themselves. Apologies if I was not specific. The second version certainly seems the better one. --DIREKTOR (TALK) 21:01, 12 February 2014 (UTC)
OK now you can look here:
  • shadows, maybe you have to reload the page to get the new version. Give me feedback, thanks. --Goran tek-en (talk) 12:13, 13 February 2014 (UTC)
Right, as I said, I don't think shadows on the shield are a good way to go. Otherwise I'm fine with shadow effects. --DIREKTOR (TALK) 21:35, 14 February 2014 (UTC)

I can't see who wrote this last comment and I would like to know if the shadows on the shield should be removed and if it's Done? --Goran tek-en (talk) 20:13, 13 February 2014 (UTC)

That was me, yup I personally don't think we need them :) --DIREKTOR (TALK) 21:35, 14 February 2014 (UTC)
@DIREKTOR: It's now uploaded and I will work on the other two versions. --Goran tek-en (talk) 15:38, 15 February 2014 (UTC)
Now there are two more for you to look at;
Give me feedback on those and let's see if I understood you right. --Goran tek-en (talk) 19:32, 15 February 2014 (UTC)
Agh, damn.. was just about to post. Note I've modified the appearance of the shield slightly (with my very amateurish Illustrator skills.. I don't think the heads are 100% aligned :)). I'd be obliged if you used a narrower shield as in the new upload. Re the two versions:
  • If I'm not mistaken, the crown ought to somehow stretch significantly more across the shield's top, yet not so much that the tips of the crown extend too far beyond the sides of the shield (see here, for example). A narrower shield might help in that regard. For inspiration, I recommend the crown on the bottom-most lion head in this image.
  • In the Venetian version, I think we can keep the teeth and eyes white (i.e. the whites of the eyes), and ofc the narrower shield. The irises and mouth openings (on either side of the tongues) could also remain entirely black as in the original. That is to say, the only difference besides the red shield ought to be the gold tongues. Otherwise, its great.
--DIREKTOR (TALK) 19:40, 15 February 2014 (UTC)

@DIREKTOR: OK, i did have to upload a new version of your narrow shield version. When you change the size of the drawings area or position of any object which include gradients/fill/pattern you have to include those in the movement (you have to check some buttons, in Inkscape any way) otherwise they will be misplaced. I used gradients (shadows) so it's a bit complicated drawing, you have to know what you do when you move things. If you download your version you will see that the eyes and other has been misplaced.
Now you can look at new versions on the links above but reload the page. Give me feedback, thanks. --Goran tek-en (talk) 20:27, 15 February 2014 (UTC)

Yeah.. I realized I also didn't include the pearls on the crown of the lowest lion head in my upload, so I tried to fix it but then read your post and realized I better leave that to people who know what they're doing. Anyway, the pearls are missing there, on all versions - terribly sorry :(. As I said: very poor Illustrator skills. Aside from that little glitch, I think the Venetian version is done with for good.
Re the crowned version.. I can't help but feel I might've been mistaken in thinking the crown off the lions can just be extended across the top of the shield. Its elements just seem too big compared to the detail of the lions themselves. If you feel like putting together a more detailed crown for the top of the shield, that'd be great - if not, wonderful work either way :). Have a look at this crown here (found here). I tried to extend it somewhat but ofc failed in that it just turned out looking stretched (I did manage to change its colour appropriately, though). --DIREKTOR (TALK) 20:42, 15 February 2014 (UTC)
@DIREKTOR: Now I have replaced the missing pearls and uploaded it.
For Coat_of_arms_of_Dalmatia_venetia I need the following;
  • Name of the file
  • Description
  • Category/ies
to be able to upload it.
Then for the crowned version you can look at this draft and give me feedback.
Many people think that it's just to enlarge or reduce something like that but almost always you have to adjust the proportions/lines and a lot of other things. It's the same with text, you can't just go from 12px to 120px without adjusting the spaces between letters. Anyway now there is the draft as above. --Goran tek-en (talk) 20:41, 16 February 2014 (UTC)
  • Coat of arms of Dalmatia (Venetian); "The Coat of arms of Dalmatia as used by the Republic of Venice"; pretty much the same cats as the main coa image. Will fix that up myself.
  • Re the crowned version, looks great :). As far as feedback goes.. maybe the crown could be a tad taller, its spikes a tiny bit farther away from each other, maybe. Not sure about further apart, though.
Am pretty handy with Photoshop, but I'm struggling to get my head around Illustrator. Not easy at all. For example, I thought I'd just desaturate the tongues a bit, give them a dimmer shade of red to go with the subdued colors. Didn't think it was worth bothering others about such a tiny change. Couldn't figure it out :). --DIREKTOR (TALK) 00:27, 17 February 2014 (UTC)
P.s. Since I'm shamelessly exploiting your work to advance my project along, I thought I might also request if you could vectorize just the shield from this image, into a vector image that uses the same shield proportions as currently the new Dalmatia coa? Then I'm hoping to place the two shields side-by-side in a single image: like this - except the Croatian checkerboard would be properly vectorized as per the aforementioned source image, and not compressed. I can then use the combined coas to represent the historical en:Kingdom of Croatia and Dalmatia. --DIREKTOR (TALK) 01:06, 17 February 2014 (UTC)

DIREKTOR Now I have made a taller one which you can look at here and give me feedback.

  • I didn't understand if you wanted me to help you with that desaturated version or you just wanted to write it of you?
  • For your P.s. I will help you, of course. But as this section has got very long I would like you to start a new request for that. Write in the Graphist opinion that I will take it and notify me when you have created it and we will take it from there. --Goran tek-en (talk) 15:31, 18 February 2014 (UTC)
  • Sure, looks good. I think the cross looks a bit our of place, but otherwise, I think its done. In either case, I feel uncomfortable posting further "demands" :)
  • Yup, it occurred to me to try and desaturate the red of the tongues just a bit, all other colours being subdued also. Could you do it since I seem to just mess up the images whenever I touch them.
  • Did you perhaps upload the Venetian version? I'm eager to put it up. If possible, it'd be great if its shade of red could match that on this image.
--DIREKTOR (TALK) 20:55, 18 February 2014 (UTC)

It's OK to have demands, it's for your use we create those images and some things you don't see/realize until you are a bit into the process.
They are all uploaded now with the cross removed (gem instead), tongues desaturated a bit and coat color changed.
I did overwrite your versions of the "Coat of arms of Dalmatia" and "Coat of arms of Dalmatia crowned" as I understood this was what you wanted. Coat of arms of Dalmatia (Venetian) is also uploaded and then this would be done, thanks. --Goran tek-en (talk) 10:48, 19 February 2014 (UTC) ✓ Done

@Goran tek-en: Thank you. It seems to me however that Wikipedia has some kind of standard form for presenting chemical structure formulas. I'd prefer it to be in that form, but I guess some chemical drawing program would be needed for that. LeRoc (talk) 15:16, 18 February 2014 (UTC)
@LeRoc: Now I have made it using one tool for that. This is what i got created with SketchEl. As you can see there are some differences. The partly red surrounding O didn't appear, the grey part by H didn't show up either. Down in the right hand corner the double lines has an opening at the top (which it did by it self), to the left almost at the bottom the line inside couldn't I find any automatic way to create so it's handmade.
This is a kind of semi automatic program which changes things when I for instance put in O somewhere and so on. So this is what it gave me and i need your feedback on this, thanks. If there is anyone else who has done this before that you know of please ask them to check this. --Goran tek-en (talk) 19:17, 18 February 2014 (UTC)
@Goran tek-en:. To be honest, I don't need the greys and the reds very much. I wouldn't mind if everything were black and white, like most chemical structure formulas on Wikipedia. I would like to get rid of the opening at the top of the double lines though, that should be closed. Do you think that is possible? LeRoc (talk) LeRoc (talk) 19:36, 18 February 2014 (UTC)

Of course. I did try to import the files you can export from PubChem into SketcEl and that work fine. The problem for me was that it imported to much, there were more than one formula so it got too complicated for me. I had to build it from scratch. But maybe you with your knowledge can export/import just what you need because then it's done. It seems to be a good program to do just this. --Goran tek-en (talk) 16:21, 20 February 2014 (UTC)

Vector arms for the Kingdom of Croatia and Dalmatia

Article(s): en:Kingdom of Croatia (925–1102), en:Croatia in the union with Hungary, en:Coat of arms of Croatia, en:Coat of arms of Dalmatia, en:History of Croatia, en:Kingdom of Croatia (Habsburg), etc.


Essentially these images consist of #1 the Croatian shield and #2 the Dalmatian shield, #3 each surmounted by a crown of the same model.
Basically we need a coat of arms of Croatia that follows the appearance of the 1495 medieval arms, both in shape and in the specific layout of the checkerboard pattern; we need it to be crowned as depicted; and it can be bordered in red (as in here). Secondly, we need a Dalmatian shield that has the same proportions as the aforementioned Croatian arms, surmounted with the same crown. The Dalmatian shield itself should not be difficult, as its possible to basically just modify the proportions of this shield, compliments of Goran tek-en.
Needless to say, neither shield need be yellowed-out or follow exactly the worn-out appearance of the medieval depiction. A simple white and red checkerboard pattern (corresponding in layout to the image, and bordered in red) will more than suffice. As regards the precise shade of red, the shade found here would be best imo. --DIREKTOR (TALK) 13:45, 24 February 2014 (UTC)

Thank, it looks pretty good. White background is OK.
  • Horizontal and vertical distances: I'm not sure, are they equal or different? Equal distances would be better.
    • The distances are different but if I change them (to equal), the angel of the colored arrows will be different and is that correct?
  • I miss the unit lines: horizontal and vertical at . I prefer a continuous line instead of the dashed lines (color may be the same).
    • If you mean by value 1 they are there, I made them some what more visible. Changed the lines.
  • Please, use En dash / w:se:Tankstreck as minus sign at each value -- not the w:en:Hyphen / w:se:Bindestreck.
    • It was a bit tricky to find it but I think I did.
  • Please, use bold text allover the scales (including "Re" and "Im").
    • Bold it is.
A suitable name is: "Complex plane (Gauss) with examples", see w:en:Complex plane / w:se:Komplexa tal or the similar File:ComplexaTalplanet-2.svg. The English description doesn't need more explanation than the filename. -- Thanks again! Juergen (talk) 07:27, 12 March 2014 (UTC)

I suppose there are some missunderstandings.
  • Standard cartesian coordinates use the same unit size on each axis. If you stretch the Im-axis, the vectors and angles will be stretched by the same factor. Why not?
  • All of the grid lines maybe dashed. Only the lines at value 0 (the axises) and 1 (that I called unit lines) maybe continuous.
Nevertheless, good work! -- Juergen (talk) 14:42, 14 March 2014 (UTC)
This is not a subject I have any deep knowledge in so I went by the original image but now I have changed it to equal distances and the other changes, I hope any way. Just tell me if I misunderstood anything.
Look here and reload the page to get the new and give me feedback. One thing I thought about is that in the formulas there is still the "i" which you told me to remove from the values, is that right? --Goran tek-en (talk) 19:47, 14 March 2014 (UTC)
That's alright now. The "i" in the formulas are correct: a complex number is written by .
I downloaded the file and was surprised at the file size again (now 57490 bytes vs. 33910 bytes). I removed the image, and the only effect was an enlargement of the whole graphic.

It's not really the fault of the PNG renderer — it happens on Web browsers too — the spacing of the lines is below the Nyquist frequency of the rendered pixels, resulting in moiré patterns. Possible fixes: use a coarser pattern, or solid colours. cmglee (talk) 12:50, 11 April 2014 (UTC)

Extra size!

Hi every body. I am a rookie in draw objects by AI.(also I cant speak english very well :)) I drew a cute goldfish by AI CS6 but it size is out of standard. I dont know what must I do to reduce it size to normal size for this shape. Can you do it for me? and teach me abstract?

Very thanx.SaMin SAmIN (talk) 00:34, 26 January 2014 (UTC)

Graphist opinion(s):

Did you draw this with some graphics tablet? The reason for the disproportionate file size is, that all paths consist of hundreds of nodes (instead of only few with the curves between them defined by mathematical functions as it is usual for vector graphics). Also some paths overlay themselves multiply (as if you draw something with a pencil using multiple strokes to draw one line, thats why I asked for the tablet).
While one can in principle simplify the paths automatically after drawing the image one will always loose some precision there. Retrace the outlines would be possible too but probably inconvenient in most cases. Therefore you should probably optimize your workflow from the start, so less nodes are created in the first place. We can't help you on this thoug, as long as we do not have further information on how you've actually drawn the image. --Patrick87 (talk) 13:41, 26 January 2014 (UTC)

Jaybear...disc. • 13:20, 18 January 2014 (UTC)

Graphist opinion(s):

"Showing the SVG file directly in a browser window" means that the file is displayed by a program on your local computer, not the SVG-to-PNG rendering program installed on Wikimedia servers. When viewed in the SVG program on my local computer, the files do not look OK. The "Testfile" version has strange internal code formatting, but I did some simple text adjustments on the other version... AnonMoos (talk) 08:25, 19 January 2014 (UTC)
Yes, I've thought about this "local displaying" too.
Here is a screenshot of my browser: File:Uni-Bibl firefox-17-0-10 File IGBT-Symbole-svg 2014-019-2140.jpg
I'm not really shure if the svg-thumbs I'm viewing in my browser here are the same as the ones others get to see.
Fact is: All the text on the image should look exactly like on the thumb of file-version (1) in my screenshot!
And I'm nearly sure, that at the beginning of my uploads all the text on the thumb of file-version (2) was looking exactly in the way as the one of file-version (1).
Is it somehow possible, that (at least the thumbnail-versions) of an archived previous-version file can be changed, when uploading a new file-version?
Jaybear...disc. • 22:08, 19 January 2014 (UTC)
I did some test with this and then tested it with the tool for it [13] and there it looked fine. I can't tell now when I uploaded it because sometimes it takes time for the preview to update. If this doesn't work then we maybe have to convert the text to paths. --Goran tek-en (talk) 21:54, 30 January 2014 (UTC)

Insignia of Split

Article(s): Split, Flag of Split, Coat of arms of Split, and probably others that have anything to do with it.


Requesting a vector SVG version of the above 'Flag of Split'. And also for the 'Historical Arms' (pictured above).
Further, would be grateful if proper vector versions could be put together for the 'Coat of arms of Split' and the 'Historical Flag' (also pictured above). These files do have SVG versions, but of rather poor quality.
Thanks a lot :) --DIREKTOR (TALK) 09:25, 2 May 2014 (UTC)
Excellent work! Thanks again for your assistance.
Re the 'Historical Flag', I know its pretty bad quality, but its supposed to be the walls and belfry from the coat of arms in white, on a blue flag. Without the little shields and the square border of course. --DIREKTOR (TALK) 19:29, 3 May 2014 (UTC)

Additional request:

Requesting a vector version of the historical flag of Split. The images shown above are crude representations of the old flag. The symbol on the blue flag should be the white outline of the walls and belfry, appearing as in the coat of arms as shown above (of course without the small shields and the checkered frame). Many thanks in advance. --DIREKTOR (TALK) 20:19, 7 May 2014 (UTC)

Article(s): Coat of arms of Malaysia, List of coats of arms used in Singapore and others.


Can someone please vectorize this? Thanks. — Cheers, JackLee talk 18:52, 24 April 2013 (UTC)

Graphist opinion(s):

There are some similar coat of arms already in SVG format that could need some improvement, too. I also found a coat of arms of Malaya that is very similar to the one in the requested file (see second gallery). -- Patrick87 (talk) 12:00, 26 April 2013 (UTC)
Just wanted to point out that "Coat of arms of Malaysia (1963-1965).jpg" is not identical to those other coats of arms, in case this hasn't been noticed. The coat of arms was altered after Singapore left the Federation of Malaysia in 1965. — Cheers, JackLee talk 14:56, 27 April 2013 (UTC)

Extended content
Right, just over a year since your original request and I've made a start on it. I could use some information:
Thanks for looking into this! I'd pretty much given up. My responses are below. By the way, "File:Coat of arms of the Federation of Malaya.svg"(above) seems to be inaccurate. — Cheers, JackLee talk 08:32, 11 May 2014 (UTC)
  • What is the crown lying on top of the red and black cross bottom-right?
Flag of the Kingdom of Sarawak (1870–1946)
That portion of the coat of arms is a representation of the former flag of the Kingdom of Sarawak (1870–1946): see "Flag of Sarawak". This website simply describes the crown as a "five-pointed crown". Could it be an Eastern crown (see my comment on the Federated Malay States coat of arms below)? — Cheers, JackLee talk 08:32, 11 May 2014 (UTC)
  • Is there a larger version of the flag-hoisting emblem bottom-left, and what flag is it?
Coat of arms of the North Borneo Chartered Company
Flag of Sabah 1963–1982
It is a crest from the arms of the (British) North Borneo Chartered Company (right), and this website describes it as "two arms hold[ing] flag flowing to the sinister Or charged with lion guardant Gules" (there are illustrations on the website). The commentary on the website says "The crest shows two human arms grasping a flag flying to the right. One of these arms appears to be that of a Caucasian and the other that of a person of darker hue." What I cannot tell is the design of the tiny flag held by the two arms. Originally it was a red lion, but the one on the coat of arms of Malaysia doesn't seem to be that. It may have been the Flag of Sabah used between 1963 and 1982 (below right). — Cheers, JackLee talk 08:32, 11 May 2014 (UTC)
  • Can you provide a text version of the non-Latin script for me? Typing it out on here would be fine.
    • It's the motto "Bersekutu Bertambah Mutu" ("Unity is Strength") in Jawi, that is, Malay written in Arabic letters. I don't know Jawi, so I'll ask for help at "en:Wikipedia:Reference desk/Language". (Also, I noticed that "File:Coat of arms of the Federation of Malaya.svg" (in the gallery above) seems to have the Arabic characters.) — Cheers, JackLee talk 08:32, 11 May 2014 (UTC)
    • A discussion at the page mentioned above has yielded "برصکوتو برتبح موتو" as a possibility, but this isn't an official transliteration. — Cheers, JackLee talk 17:23, 11 May 2014 (UTC) (Don't use this for the time being; waiting for a friend to provide a better transliteration. — Cheers, JackLee talk 19:08, 12 May 2014 (UTC))
  • Are the Prince of Wales feathers meant to be that blue-green colour, or is that an artifact of the image itself?
Coat of arms of Penang
I suppose it is whatever colour the Prince of Wales feathers usually are (white, I assume). According to "Coat of arms of Penang", the blazon is "Barry wavy of eight Azure and Argent upon a chief crenellée Or a plume of three ostrich feathers surmounted by a riband of the First on the riband the words Ich Dien in letters of the Third". See the image on the right, though I'm guessing the azure colour is wrong. — Cheers, JackLee talk 08:32, 11 May 2014 (UTC)
If you can answer those I should be able to finish it to a reasonable degree. Unfortunately getting the tigers to look more presentable is a bit beyond my capabilities, so they'll have to do for now.
Also, if you could identify the crown and text on the Malay States arms as well, I can make a better vector of that using this graphic, rather than the horrible traced version we have at the moment. NikNaks talk - gallery - wikipedia 00:22, 8 May 2014 (UTC)
According to "w:Federated Malay States#Coat of arms", it is an Eastern crown. The motto is again Jawi: "Dipelihara Allah" ("Under Allah's Protection"). Will have to ask for assistance for this. — Cheers, JackLee talk 08:41, 11 May 2014 (UTC)
Again, an unofficial translation from the English Wikipedia reference desk yielded "دڤليعاراء لله" as a possibility. — Cheers, JackLee talk 17:23, 11 May 2014 (UTC)
Managed to get in touch with someone who knows Jawi. The correct transliteration is "د ﭬﻠﻴﻬﺎﺭا اﻟﻠﻪ", but because it is written in a calligraphic form, he suggests that you follow the style in the file that I'm going to e-mail you. — Cheers, JackLee talk 16:26, 12 May 2014 (UTC)
Right, I've found that the coat of arms on Flag_of_Putrajaya.svg are far superior to other versions available, so I've pulled the tigers, the scrolls (which include the text already - is it correct?) and the hoisting hands from that. I've modified the flag on the hoist to look much more like the flag of Sabah, which seems to look right to me.
I've also used the crown from the Sarawak flag, and the crown and stars from the flag of Singapore itself. It now looks pretty much finished unless you can spot any errors in the text. I will do as you suggested on the email and look for missing linking lines, and then I'll start work on the others and get them up to the same standard. NikNaks talk - gallery - wikipedia 19:21, 12 May 2014 (UTC)
Another version of the royal heraldic badge of the Prince of Wales
"File:Coat of arms of Malaysia (1963 to 1965).svg" is looking pretty good, particularly the tigers! I noticed the following, though:
  • The first word of the motto is "BERSEKUTU", not "BERSEK". Can't confirm the Jawi words yet; will have to wait for my friend to provide the text.
  • The Prince of Wales's royal heraldic badge you used looks slightly different from the one on "File:Penang coat of arms.jpg", which appears to have the riband going right across the base of the three feathers (rather like the photograph on the right) and no crown. However, if your version better matches the blazon (which I can't really make much sense of!), stick to it.
  • As for the Sabah emblem, "File:BNBCC-Logo.png" indicates that it is the arm on our left which has a darker skin tone, while the arm on our right is wearing a sleeve (and so is presumably that of a white man). This appears to be confirmed by this website, which also has the emblem in colour, though I have no idea whether the colours used were simply imagined by the artist.
  • The tree emblem on the right is from the coat of arms of Malacca, and we have a better version of it at "File:Coat of arms of Malacca.svg" (right), which is apparently based on an official version on the website of the Government of Melaka. You may want to use the tree from that image instead.
— Cheers, JackLee talk 19:51, 12 May 2014 (UTC)
I don't mean to keep jumping back and forth between pages, but seeing as this discussion is starting to clutter the page, I've collapsed it here and moved it to my userspace (link).

Historical flag and coat of arms of Split (19th century)

Article(s): Split, Flag of Split, Coat of arms of Split, Diocletian's Palace, Saint Domnius Cathedral, and probably others that have anything to do with it.


Requesting a vector version of the 19th century historical coat of arms of the city of Split. See a raster version here. Please use the shade of blue from this image; the border used by the linked coa imo isn't necessary. The shape of the shield can be taken from this image.
This (as opposed to the previous images) is the much older design used before the mid-20th century. I'm working to properly present the heraldry of the region on enWiki, and, as before, would be very grateful for assistance with vector images. (sorry if I didn't file this correctly)
The tower and walls depicted there (the north walls of Diocletian's Palace and the Saint Domnius Cathedral belfry) were also used on the city's contemporary flag, so, aside from the shield, they can also just be copy/pasted on a 1:2 blue rectangle (as crudely depicted here) and we have the historical flag for the period as well. --DIREKTOR (TALK) 15:58, 8 May 2014 (UTC)

Graphist opinion(s):

Am I right in thinking that you want a similar flag and CoA to the one requested before, but with the shape of the towers and buildings slightly different? NikNaks talk - gallery - wikipedia 20:15, 9 May 2014 (UTC)
What I'd need is this exact coat of arms on a shield of that basic shape, with the following modifications:
  • the walls need not actually come into contact with the left and right edges of the shield, as in the image
  • I don't think we need a black border (or any border) around the shield
  • I would suggest using the shade of blue from the previous flag and coat of arms.
Then I'd simply copy-paste the symbol from the shield unto a flag, and that's it. --DIREKTOR (TALK) 07:32, 10 May 2014 (UTC)
I also not fully understand what you want, a flag with the COA shape or without the shape? You can not put a blue shape an a blue flag and (especially not without border) and "shade" also normally don't exist in the Vexillology.
@COA: You want a SVG of a "historical" COA or a flag? In other meaning the COA would in your description be useless because it is only for a ("copy-paste") flag and "not historical" without all the heraldic characteristics. -- Perhelion (talk) 10:47, 10 May 2014 (UTC)
Ok, I'll try again. This exact coat of arms, as it appears there, with the following minor modifications:
  • As you can see, that coat of arms there has a black border around the blue shield. I don't think we need that in an SVG image.
  • The exact shade of blue used in the shield, can be taken from this image. Naturally, I am talking only about the escutcheon - the tower and walls of course remain white. It would also be good if they didn't touch the border of the shield (as they do in the image [14]).
Naturaly I don't mean that the surrounding text and numbers, or anything outside the actual coat of arms be used. The flag will be very easy once we have the coa, so lets forget about the flag for now.
Hope I was clear enough this time. Please do ask for clarifications if any are necessary. And thank you for taking the time. --DIREKTOR (TALK) 11:39, 10 May 2014 (UTC)
Ok ok and ok, but I don't agree with "minor modifications" because this is a "modern" behavior, black border around the shield is very common! -- Perhelion (talk) 12:03, 10 May 2014 (UTC)
It may be common, but its not correct in terms of accurate depiction of heraldry. There are some actual coats of arms that are rimmed in black by design, and a proper depiction of a coat of arms shouldn't have any element that isn't part of its design. The coat of arms we have here, is simply the white walls and tower (in the shape as depicted), on a blue background.
The shade of blue on the stamp isn't quite accurate because its yellowed out and faded due to age (at least 80 years). Imo best to use the modern-day shade of blue used by the city. Its close enough.. for all we know that might actually have been the original colour. --DIREKTOR (TALK) 17:40, 10 May 2014 (UTC)
Um.. ok? :) Of course, needless to say its entirely up to you, I'm just mentioning my preferences. --DIREKTOR (TALK) 17:52, 14 May 2014 (UTC)
How's this? Is this what you meant? NikNaks talk - gallery - wikipedia 20:46, 14 May 2014 (UTC)
Sorry, I really don't like it. It may look great for other "normal people" (and my criticism seems incomprehensible), but for me, almost everything is bad you could make bad (as graphist). You have extremely emphasized the weaknesses of the tiny JPEG stamp and striped off for this little things that could still heraldic guess somewhat. Is there not in the English WP something like an Heraldry lab? -- Perhelion (talk) 12:27, 15 May 2014 (UTC)
From a heraldry point of view I must say that this is a poor rendition. Essential details are missing as the portcullis of the main gate for instance. --Maxxl2 - talk 12:49, 15 May 2014 (UTC)
Unfortunately I am a "normal person", and by no means a heraldry expert. If you can provide some more specific mistakes or things you think should be changed, I am happy to have a go at fixing them, but just saying "it is bad in terms of heraldry" isn't something I can act on. I can only vectorise what I see. NikNaks talk - gallery - wikipedia 14:40, 15 May 2014 (UTC)
Ok, then let me say:
1. It is good did you use clones but this is visible on the blue hairline in the middle - make a small overlap.
2. Remove the brown tincture because this is unheraldic if this is not emblazoned (what's the case here). The brown comes from black line which are blurred on the bad quality stamp, make a small extra black contour line.
3. Take a normal well formed escutcheon like File:CoA sample 300x350.svg
4. Make all windows right and as normal arched windows like (also the full ovals in the middle) File:Coat of arms of Split.svg (this coa should not have to do with Orient windows)
5. Take a (bit) thicker contour in all
6. about the gate I'm not sure but I guess it is needed.
I hope that was enough and it was clear and helpful so you can take finally action for improvement!? Maybe take a look at en:Wikipedia:WikiProject Heraldry and vexillology -- Perhelion (talk) 23:10, 16 May 2014 (UTC)
I would second these points, and add my previous suggestion that the walls need not necessarily reach all the way to the edge of the escutcheon. Thank you for your work, NikNaks :). --DIREKTOR (TALK) 09:34, 18 May 2014 (UTC)
I wasn't completely sure what you meant with by #4, but I've tried to make most things parallel to the ground. Is that what you meant? I've followed the rest of your instructions though, and the oval window is now like the others, as well. NikNaks talk - gallery - wikipedia 16:33, 20 May 2014 (UTC)
Thanks a lot NikNaks, top quality work. To wrap this up, requesting a small modification of this file, just noticed a tiny inaccuracy. Namely, there are some elements which remain white (argent), and ought to be blue when presented on a blue background. Specifically a) the windows on the belfry; three of them: two on the upper level, and the one wider, semicircular window below. b) the opening of the gate. These (altogether four) spaces ought to be blue, given the blue background of the flag. Analogous to NikNaks' images, in fact. They are white now only because the device was taken from the arms, that have a white background. Hope I managed to be clear enough. --DIREKTOR (TALK) 21:08, 20 May 2014 (UTC)
Like that? NikNaks talk - gallery - wikipedia 22:10, 20 May 2014 (UTC)

the green bracket should be more professional. The left ends is correct, the right one is a little too short.

What do you think about a SVG drawing version? -- Perhelion 13:33, 26 May 2014 (UTC)

Ok, yes I asked you because I'm the graphist and I think it should be SVG (and I or someone would do so). This is, because there are no photographic details needed, this is only a schematic graphic (with good possible contrast lines). But your are the requester... SVG is the most preferred format on Wikipedia. -- Perhelion 14:18, 26 May 2014 (UTC)
This is a case where I'd actually vote for an SVG with added annotations and the wing itself embedded as raster graphics (or maybe just PNG would work, too; JPG is bad for illustrations). I totally like that a realistic image used here to illustrate the annotations and I would not want to cut it down to a "boring" schematic. --Patrick87 (talk) 20:46, 26 May 2014 (UTC)

Unfortunately Garamond isn't one of the fonts available to the renderer. There's a list of fonts that are available here.

This SVG is meant to resemble a garrison military rank collar device. These insignia are usually grey and silver in color with a metallic and chrome finish. However the SVG is currently only a two-dimensional color scheme, very bland. Other rank insignia SVGs have the full chrome finish applied. Therefore, please recolor the SVG so that black is a dark grey and the white is a light grey. Also add a metallic-style chrome finish similar to that found on 1/2/3. You may adjust the colors to your liking. Reference images for comparison here: 1/2/3/4. Also, if possible please upload a yellow/gold SVG with the chrome finish as well.

Graphist opinion(s):

@Illegitimate Barrister: I've uploaded a version in grey with some pseudo-3D shading. However the PNG thumbnails generated by the Wikimedia software don't look right.

  • Pictogram voting comment.svg Comment Thanks, it's a step in the right direction. There appears to be an issue with the transparency. It is translucent at the moment, when it should be opaque. Best regards, Flag of Arlington County, Virginia.png Illegitimate Barrister 12:05, 10 March 2014 (UTC)
I just removed the transparency. I think it's lost a little lustre but it still looks decent, and the thumbnails it generates are a lot more reasonable. NikNaks talk - gallery - wikipedia 18:58, 27 May 2014 (UTC)

Great!Face-grin.svg The 2nd version looks most suitable (colors). I have one question - why in gallery shadows are jagged? --Rezonansowy (talk) 13:33, 22 January 2014 (UTC)

Looks as if the "jagged-ness" is caused by little too dark shadows ...
... looking better now with the current reduced shadows, I think?!
Have you a precise opinion how the final image should be named?
* I think File:Test Template Info-Icon - Version (2).svg should be renamed to File:"Your-File-Opinion".svg
* and File:Test Template Info-Icon - Version (2).svg could be renamed to File:"Your-File-Opinion - Version (2)".svg or so
Jaybear...disc. • 16:59, 22 January 2014 (UTC)
Hmm, maybe File:Transluction info.svg, but I'm open on this. --Rezonansowy (talk) 17:52, 22 January 2014 (UTC)
Now I've uploaded a rather "true to original"-version as latest version File:Test Template Info-Icon.svg:
– ((1)) the original 706px-png-file
– ((2)) the 706px-png-version of the svg-file
And some thumbnails of different sizes are looking like this:
... 160px
... 144px
... 128px

... 96px
... 64px
... 48px
... 32px

... looks in my browser a little as if the smaller server-generated png-versions are losing their shadows?
Jaybear...disc. • 23:00, 22 January 2014 (UTC)
Great work! But why in 160px, 144px and 128px resolutions shadows behind the "i" letter are generated the other way? Maybe it's a MediaWiki render bug? --Rezonansowy (talk) 11:19, 23 January 2014 (UTC)
It's really a little annoying with the different, server-generated thumbnails ...
Why not all of the smaller ones are simply a scaled-down version of the greater ((2))-706px-version?
Most strange is the different rendering of "i"-char-shadow and general icon-shadows.
If this problem persists, may be the original png-image is the better choice for the template?
Jaybear...disc. • 17:14, 24 January 2014 (UTC)
IMO that's not a major problem with rendering on smaller thumbnails, maybe this bug is even on Bugzilla... Let's just finish this and again - Great work! --Rezonansowy (talk) 17:18, 24 January 2014 (UTC)

I have a second question: Could you attribute your great work in work's original license – {{CC-0}}? This is very useful for template-functional images like this and it's required as per Wikipedia:Extended image syntax. (Done – Jaybear)

Graphist opinion(s):

✓ Done Let me know if I fixed it correctly. If it's still wrong, I can have another go. NikNaks talk - gallery - wikipedia 21:21, 5 May 2014 (UTC)
Could you please remove the Line from Sweet Whey to the Cheeses that originate from Cheese Curd in the Illustrations? Also: Thanks! This has bothered me for a long time. --ParisTJoyce (talk) 21:08, 16 May 2014 (UTC)
I'm not entirely sure which line you're referring to, but I'll have another look. The thing that worries me most, though, is that this seems to still be very different to the original German version, with extra lines and products, but also different routes between the common elements. Is there any reason for that? I would have thought manufacture of cheese would be a pretty standard thing and not vary across languages!
Also, Perhelion has cleaned up the German file, so it would probably be better in the long run to try to build on that instead of trying to maintain two separate versions. I'm trying to get good at using the <switch> method of translation - see here for some examples - and this looks like it would be perfect for that. NikNaks talk - gallery - wikipedia 22:22, 16 May 2014 (UTC)
Languages can have different Products. The Charts do not feature the same Selection of Products.
There is alsow the Problem of Fitting everything perfectly in.
I'd be happy if the Error in the Chart would be fixed, for now.
The Offending Line Connects the Arrow that goes legitimately from "Sweet whey" to "Whey Cheese", to the Arrows that originate from "Cheese Curd" to "Soft / Soft ripened" / "Semi-soft" / "Semi-hard" / "Hard".
So it is a short horizontal Line on the left of the Arrow that goes into "Whey cheese". --ParisTJoyce (talk) 17:04, 21 May 2014 (UTC)

@Illegitimate Barrister: Someone (in the upload history) says it is a flag? Have you evidence for that? -- Perhelion (talk) 23:16, 24 April 2014 (UTC)
In the past, some people have uploaded images with 3:2 aspect ratio and transparent background, which is unfortunately the worst of both worlds -- as I've pointed out several times before, if it's a flag, it can't have a transparent background; while if it's an emblem, it can't have a 3:2 aspect ratio... AnonMoos (talk) 01:10, 25 April 2014 (UTC)
Looks like it is a flag indeed; forget about the transparency then, it's not needed. Somebody needs to rename the file to "Flag of the League of Nations.svg" to avoid any confusion. What we can do to solve this quandary is to have two files one will have a 3:2 aspect ratio and transparent background under the present name, whereas the second file will have the name "Flag of the League of Nations.svg" and will be identical to the present one.

Requesting a vector SVG version of above coat of arms and making of SVG flag of Osijek. Current version of coat of arms is in PNG format and it has few errors. Also, nuances of colours should be checked, because correct nuances are cobalt blue, gold and silver.

Graphist opinion(s):

The colours of the flag are adjusted as requested. I cant see any errors with the PNG format. Cobalt blue is just a colour name but not a specification. Gold and silver cant be rendered as there is no monitor able to display them properly. Instead of those metals yellow and white are applied in heraldry. The present PNG version is of such a good quality that converting into SVG would not result in any quality gain on commons due to its renderer rsvg. -- Maxxl² - talk 18:38, 15 July 2014 (UTC)

icons for Template:Commons FP galleries

Article(s): Template:Commons FP galleries


I'm looking for black and white icons (if possible svg) for the new FP galleries template and have difficulties finding something for 'other animals' (e.g. molluscs), 'fungi', 'satellite images' and 'interior'. The first three are probably quite easily solved if somebody could help me by changing one of the two snail/fungi pictures into a filled black and white svg icon (You have to be able to see what is meant with a height of 15px).
'Interior' is much more difficult to find something fitting (as it's quite abstract). My best idea so far is to try a room perspective - perhaps simply a corner with a table or a picture/window on the wall? The three pictures I put in the gallery are the best I found so far but still much too complicated... interior 4 is my try to simplify those. --Anna reg (talk) 14:26, 30 July 2014 (UTC)

Have you tried it without the Python script? It's a bit of a no-no to have SVGs containing scripts.

@Snaily, ديفيد عادل وهبة خليل 2: yes Looks pretty good! Only one little thing, the loop is not that smooth closed (pinged the requester). Regards PS: is it right that the ping on red user-pages don't work? User: Perhelion (Commons: = crap?)07:55, 2 September 2014 (UTC)
Hello ديفيد عادل وهبة خليل 2 and Perhelion, I am glad you like it.
To close the loop smoothly I need to find two frames in my simulation where the flags have (at least) the same position and speed for each point. And I can't. In Blender you just define a flag and a wind source (a gross simplification), and it runs. In this kind of simulation I lack the ability to predict which two frames will be equal. So now, I render 400 frames and manually try to find a periodic cycle. As you see, it doesn't really work flawlessly, but it's the best I can do for now. I will keep working on this. - Regards Snaily (talk) 01:35, 3 September 2014 (UTC)

  • @WhisperToMe: Just so I got this right. You want an illustration of the seats for a DC-10-30 in Japanese and English?
  • You want an illustration of an intact airplane not the crashed one with its crashed fuselage? --Goran tek-en (talk) 12:55, 17 November 2014 (UTC)
@Goran tek-en: Thank you for taking it. I would like to have a map of the airliner's seats made. For example: File:Seatmap_of_Air_China_Flight_129_(en).svg is of en:Air China Flight 129 with the sources being the versions of the final accident report from the South Korean authorities. - The documents from the Japanese authorities indicated in "Request" have the source material. The source map will show the airliner intact. WhisperToMe (talk) 23:24, 17 November 2014 (UTC)
@WhisperToMe:Now I have made a draft for the English version english draft and I want you to give me feedback on it. I want to start with that so I have that as a base for the different languages version. Tell me what you think and what to edit, you have the knowledge and knows what you want, I'm the tool to make it happens.

  • Name of the file
  • Description
  • Category/ies

@WhisperToMe: So is this draft english ready and can be uploaded? --Goran tek-en (talk) 18:29, 18 November 2014 (UTC)

@Goran tek-en: - I did a double-check, and if it's okay there are some additional things I noticed. 1. The row numbers. 2. The "ABCDEFGHJK" of the seats. The letters may be found in row 1, row 5, row 9, row 19, row 22 (next to the "3R"), and in row 37. If the English map is not clear enough, you are welcome to use the Japanese map.
Also: It seems like the galleys are marked, as there are the labels G1, G2, G3, G4, G5, G6, G7, and G8. I do not know what the "A", "B, "C," "D", "H," and "J" mean, and there are also "C/A" labels but I do not know what they mean. I asked about it at en:Wikipedia_talk:WikiProject_Aviation#What_do_these_labels_on_a_plane_crash_map_mean.3F
WhisperToMe (talk) 05:54, 19 November 2014 (UTC)
@WhisperToMe: When I work on an illustration or map I always try to put in as little information as possible to start with. Then by feedback I put in what the requester wants. I don't like when you have to much unnecessary information, it just makes it so hard to view and "read" it.
I also put in the row#. I think A... are the lavatories. New draft english and reload the page and give me feedback, thanks. --Goran tek-en (talk) 16:04, 19 November 2014 (UTC)

✓ Done The problem seems to be the 12.5MP limit. Cropping brings the gif down to 360x540, which still is above the limit.
I decided to animate the y-position of the canvas, which means:
  • it doesn't show the original trajectory anymore
  • less vertical space wasted (360x360 now)
  • satisfies the 12.5MP limit

@WhisperToMe: First I want you to look at this draft of the English version as svg. Draft of English version to check that this one is correct, thanks. --Goran tek-en (talk) 19:48, 3 December 2014 (UTC)
@Goran tek-en: Goran, your new version matches the old version! One suggestion: Change "Korean air" to "Korean Air." Anyway, is the new version good as a color blind version, if so I can link to it from the English KAL801 page WhisperToMe (talk) 05:06, 4 December 2014 (UTC)
@WhisperToMe: Do you have any idea why your ping doesn't reach me?
Now the English svg version is uploaded Seat map of Korean Air 801 (English) and yes, I think this should be good for colorblind. I try to make them so but there are so many different ways to be colorblind so it's not easy.
I have also uploaded this Seat map Boeing 747-300 if it can be to any good some time.
I will work on the translation now. --Goran tek-en (talk) 20:12, 5 December 2014 (UTC)

Injury map for 2001 Japan Airlines mid-air incident, in English and Japanese

en:2001 Japan Airlines mid-air incident, ja:日本航空機駿河湾上空ニアミス事故

If the reader uses English, the blue is "Occupied" and the Gray is "Vacancy" - For the Japanese version, use 使用席 for "occupied" and 空席 for "vacant". - The key is needed for passengers and crew with minor and serious injuries but the key may be put outside of the image and into the file description if need be. I am not sure if we need the table in the injuries layout.

The mid-air incident involved two aircraft but injuries only occurred on JAL Flight 907.

SVG loses half of its text

Most value labels on axes and label of vertical axis are lost after rasterization (while in SVG they are visible). It would be also better if somebody will be able to replace -'s on pretty −'s. There is something wrong with the file, it's very difficult to edit texts in Inkskape. --Ignatus (talk) 21:37, 28 December 2014 (UTC)
Graphist opinion(s)
✓ Done The text elements of the svg file were messed up. There were duplicate or contradicting style information on text and group elements. Sometimes whitespaces before tspan elements. Also some unused glyphs. It seems Inkscape added a lot of unncessesary information to the svg file from your graph plotting software. To avoid those problems try to adjust the graphs layout only in you plotting software and not in Inkscape.
I fixed the svg by moving all text elements to the end of the file and removing all problematic attributes. I also made the viewport slightly bigger. I increased the size of the axes labels and changed the style form italic to normal, because wiki commons doesn't render italic DejaVu. -- Maklaan (talk) 05:22, 29 December 2014 (UTC)

Thank you, @Maklaan:. If you want I can ask a Korean editor what is best for "Injuries" and zones. For "Door ??" it's fine as is. The number would be the same in Korean as it is in English (1L in English is 1L in Korean) WhisperToMe (talk) 05:52, 30 December 2014 (UTC)
@WhisperToMe: Yes, it would be nice, if you could get a translation from a korean editor.
Regarding the doors: While the numbers will stay the same, it might be worth to translate the letters. The letter 'L' is used to indicate the 'left' side and 'R' is used to indicate the 'right' side of the plane. If possible try to also get Korean words or symbols for 'left' and 'right'. -- Maklaan (talk) 07:32, 30 December 2014 (UTC)

Color seatmap of Ethiopian Airlines Flight 961

Article(s): en:Ethiopian Airlines Flight 961


Please make a color seat map based upon Page 53, Appendix D 1 of 8, PDF document Page 59 of 99. If you have difficulty understanding the map, you may cross-check it with the lists of surviving and deceased passengers and surviving and deceased crew members:
  • Appendix E (Page 1 of 6), p. 61 (PDF document 67/99) - List of Surviving Crew Members (Table 1), List of Fatally Injured Crew Members (Table 2).
  • The passenger lists: Appendix E Pages 2-6 of 6, p. 62-66 (Pages 68-72/99 of the PDF document) - List of Fatally Injured Passengers (Table 4) on pages 3-6 of Appendix E, p. 63-66 - List of Surviving Passengers (Page 2 of Appendix E, p. 62)

According to the official report, 119 passengers and 6 crew members died, 38 passengers and 6 crew members received serious injuries, 2 passengers received minor injuries, and 4 passengers received no injuries. (p. 2, Page 8/99 of the PDF document)

These lists are in the same PDF file: --WhisperToMe (talk) 11:01, 18 August 2014 (UTC)

Thanks, Fred! In regards to the seat designations: I'll repeat the numbers of the seats with survivors as seen in the official document Page 68/99. Seats marked "S" are seats of those with injuries (either minor or serious) and seats marked "N" are those with no injury. There should be only four "N" seats, and the other survivors are the "S" seats. However note that there seems to be discrepancies between the survivor list and the seat map! and When the seat map and passenger manifest conflict, use the seat map since my research suggests that the seat map is the best indicator of the actual seating arrangement when the plane hit the water
According to the seat map: The three cabin crew in the front died. In the back two cabin crew survived while the other two died.

  • =Same seat listed twice on the manifest for two different passengers
    • =Hijacker's seat
NOTES A: Ethiopian Airlines seems to have marked 22C, 22D, 25G, and 34E as unoccupied seats (blank) on the seat map, but the manifest says they were occupied by survivors
NOTES B: Ethiopian Airlines seems to have marked 7F, 9C, 9E, and 10B as survivor seats (S) on the seat map, but I haven't found passengers in those seats on the manifest.
  • UPDATE: I understand why the discrepancy is in place. The passengers for 22C and 22D were Frank "Pancho" Huddle and his wife Chanya "Pom" Huddle. Huddle says he got a last minute upgrade to business class - So I think what happened was that the four seats were economy class passengers upgraded to business class at the last minute. In that case, please in case of a conflict between the passenger manifest and seat map, use the seat map
Possibly the cabin crew may have occupied some of the other seats: the jet only shows seven cabin crew seats but there were nine cabin crew on the flight
NOTE C: The manifest stated that the hijackers had occupied seats 25B, 31B, and 32C. AFAIK they were NOT in their seats when the plane crashed (at the time they were fighting the pilots and/or standing guard outside). But I don't think it was an error to show their seats as fatalities on the seat map.
NOTE D: The map stated that 7D and 29E had fatalities but I did not see a 7D or a 29E in the passenger fatalities manifest
NOTE E: The same seat is listed twice on the manifest for a fatality: 21E: Ahmed Ibrahim (Egypt) and 21E: CE Grace (Nigeria)

Sorry, I'd uploaded this before I saw your extra comments. I'm taking a break from the computer for a short while but I'll get back to correcting the disparities. Also if there's anything else you want to me to change or add/take out then please let me know. --Fred the Oyster (talk) 18:40, 18 August 2014 (UTC)
It's okay. If you based it on the seat map alone, it's fine. I checked my research and found that the seat map in probability is more "up to date" than the manifest (I cross checked Frank Huddle's empty seat with the story of his last minute upgrade to business class). I do have: Requested corrections and additions: Passengers in rows 11-14 in seats A, B, F, and G were all dead. Seat 12B is unoccupied. Seat 21E had a fatality. The person in Seat 33A did not survive: He/she was a fatality. Also, please add the seat lettering: A, B, C, E, F, G for business class and A, B, C, D, E, F, G for economy class.
New request #1: Is it okay if you have French version? The French: Legende = Legend, Decès = Dead, Survivants avec blessure grave ou legère = Survivors with severe or minor injury, Survivants sans blessure = Uninjured, Siege un occupe = Empty - Seat map = Occupation des sièges par des passagers, Galley = Cuisine, avatory = Toilette , Flight attendant seat = Siège des agents de bord, Closet = Placard WhisperToMe (talk) 18:46, 18 August 2014 (UTC)
New request #2: By the way, if you want to do one more: PDF p. 60/99 (French: PDF p. 88/89) has another graphic showing the fractures in the airplane body. Are you interested in making a graphic on this one? Anyway, thank you so much for your help so far! WhisperToMe (talk) 19:04, 18 August 2014 (UTC)
I've done the French version as above, a couple of the legends you didn't translate so I let Google do the work. If I've got it wrong then please feel free to edit it yourself. It's only a text file file and all the wordage is near the bottom of the file and is easily changed. As for the other diagram. I can't do it right now, but if you don't get any other takers in the next couple of days I'll try to fit it in. I did use the seat plan for the entire thing as I was too busy messing with the graphics rather than crass-checking things. There is always the possibility that I added to the errors by getting my colours confused, so it may be worthwhile not accepting that I got it right the first time round! --Fred the Oyster (talk) 19:41, 18 August 2014 (UTC)
Thank you so much, Fred! I really appreciate it! If/when you correct the colors for seats A/B/F/G of rows 11-14, 12B (empty), 21E, and 33A in both the English and French versions, please let me know so I can add the seat map to various Wikipedia versions. WhisperToMe (talk) 20:31, 18 August 2014 (UTC)
I've corrected the ones you spotted and a few others you hadn't! Oh the joys of copy and pasting allied with a bad memory. I've re-uploaded the corrected versions.

Oops, I'd missed those seats. They changed colour as I'd accidentally grouped a series of seats with some further back down the plane and when I changed their colour... well you get the idea. :) Anyway, all sorted, along with the translations. I've also set the two documents up to look alike (view window) with the exception of the text. I don't know why I didn't do that before, it would have been far easier for me.

Thank you so much for your help! I really appreciate what has been made. Before these maps were made its likely the public wasn't aware of this and they had to hunt inside the document to find this information. Now it's been presented clearly and openly. I'm going to check with the Amharic (national language of Ethiopia) speakers to see if they are interested in making an Amharic version WhisperToMe (talk) 11:08, 19 August 2014 (UTC)

All done. All text is raw text and is easily edited with a text editor. It's all grouped in logical groups which are titled, so should anyone want to translate it then it should be easy. I really can't be arsed to use the switch facility in SVGs to make translations automatic from just one file, but should anyone want to do so I won't stand in their way. --Fred the Oyster (talk) 18:06, 20 October 2014 (UTC)

Thank you! I'll look for somebody to help get the translations for Korean and Mandarin Chinese. I'll let you know once I secure the translations. WhisperToMe (talk) 06:21, 22 October 2014 (UTC)

Unless there's any major text alignment issues, or text being moved then it's simplicity for anyone to replace existing text just using a text editor. I deliberately format all SVGs I do with all the text grouped together in one layer on top of everything else. This way if one were to open the file in a text editor all the text is grouped together (in editable form) in one block right at the end of the file. I find this to be a happy medium instead of me having to go through all the mither of setting up the switch facility (a way of automatically presenting the in your own language, depending on which language is setup in your Commons' user preferences). So ultimately I'm not required in the process for translation. Anyone can do it, and it's relatively easy to do it without needing any XML markup skills, at least on most of the SVGs I do. It's even easier to do if one uses a text editor that supports syntax highlighting like Notepad++ so that the raw text is highlighted and therefore easy to find.--Fred the Oyster (talk) 10:13, 22 October 2014 (UTC)

Spanish and English seatmaps of Aires 8250

Article(s): es:Vuelo 8250 de Aires, en:Aires Flight 8250


Please make Spanish and English seatmaps of en:Aires Flight 8250. See page 53/108 of this document:

To make the English version:

  • "Fatalidad" = Fatality
  • "Lesión en la cabeza o cara" = Injury to the head or face
  • "Silla perdida o faltante" = Seat lost or missing
  • "Puesto no ocupado" = Unoccupied seat
  • "PSU caída" = Mask from Overhead Passenger Service Unit (PSU) dropped down
  • "PSU perdida" = Mask from Overhead Passenger Service Unit (PSU) was lost
  • "PSU intacto" = Mask from Overhead Passenger Service Unit (PSU) did not drop down

A "PSU" in Spanish is a "puerta de los cajetines" (plural: "puertas de los cajetines") WhisperToMe (talk) 06:01, 26 August 2014 (UTC)

Flag request

Graphist opinion(s):

Thanks! Well done! But could you have another look the the Brest Voblast image, it seems there are stell same black at the right blue-red border as well as the red rectangulars. Look like a "shadow"

Nope, it's an optical illusion, most probably due to the way the display works with the red and blue pixels right next to each other. They represent the total opposites of the light spectrum that we can see. The only black strokes in the image are on the bull. It was probably that effect that the original artist threw in the original strokes to attempt to counteract that effect. --Fred the Oyster (talk) 20:36, 7 October 2014 (UTC)

@WhisperToMe: I have now got hold of the original files but they are extremely "heavy" and it takes a lot of computer power to work on them, it's really hard and very slow.
So I have tested the different colors they use on this page:
The result is that the images actually are pretty good and well done and taking in consideration colorblind issues. Only on one of the different color problem you can test on that site the images has a problem. If you have "typical achromatopsia" then it can be hard to see difference between green and orange.
Other then that the colors work for what you can test at that site. So to me there is not much to be done, I have no other way to test if color combinations work for colorblind or not. If you or anyone else has other knowledge please tell me and others so we can improve this work.
So I will close this request but if anyone else has any other ideas just go ahead. --Goran tek-en (talk) 18:58, 28 March 2015 (UTC)

@Dqfn13: Please try to give this to an Heraldry project like en:Wikipedia:WikiProject Heraldry and vexillology or similar (because also "graphist only" does almost a bad job here). But anyway I'm also not sure about the permission here, most of this are declared as "Picture used with permission, do not reproduce."

Boo-hoo. no-one here owes you anything. There's a good old saying that says "to ask a question invites a refusal". I guess you just got yours. Frankly I'm not surprised given your attitude. There's also a pretty good chance that any further requests you make will go unanswered too. I certainly won't take on one, not with the attitude you've demonstrated. Seeing how this place is supposed to be educational, let me advance your education a little. Do not come here and demand anything, because if you do you will leave with nothing. We are not here at your (or anyone else's for that matter) beck and call, we are volunteers like you. We spend hours doing difficult art for bugger all money or anything else really, but maybe a bit of gratitude and some self satisfaction. However when people like you come along with your entitlement attitude we all end up with a sour taste in our mouths. My advice... download Inkscape or buy Illustrator and start learning to do your own. Maybe you'll then get an appreciation for just how difficult this sort of vector work is. As it is you don't currently appear to get it. --Fred the Oyster (talk) 22:47, 24 September 2014 (UTC)

I realy respect all of you. I only do not like it when people give me the feeling I'm being ignored, even though I asked it very politly at first. As you can see I've waited about a month before I asked the second time. I only started being pissed off after the needless refusal. And now... this item may be deleted, I'll write my articles without images or hope somebody else can help me. Dqfn13 (talk) 19:51, 25 September 2014 (UTC)
Tough shit. You got ignored, get over it. Just like everyone else here, you're not that important. Now grow up, stop spitting your dummy out and don't expect other people to do your bidding when you ask. So what if you got pissed off, keep it to yourself.

Flag of Nizhny Novgorod.svg

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 [17]; the coat of arms (File:Coat of arms Nizhny Novgorod.png) can be converted as well.

@YLSS: I do need your feedback as above to be able to finish this request, thanks. --Goran tek-en (talk) 18:12, 6 June 2015 (UTC)

Flag and Coat of arms of Kafr El-Sheikh Governorate

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)

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)

Vectorization of File:Internet Explorer logo.png

Article(s): en:Internet Explorer, en:Internet Explorer 9, 10 and so on...


Please fix the shadow, and the gradients to make the second image more similar to the original. --Rezonansowy (talk) 11:36, 29 October 2014 (UTC)
Can someone help, please? --Rezonansowy (talk) 18:36, 8 November 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'm personally not a Microsoft lower, but law is law. Sorry. --Sergey Rufanov (talk) 14:22, 11 November 2014 (UTC)
