Creative Commons pictures? ForTheGrammar (talk) 20:13, 21 June 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]


wikt:spænde ben. Based on the usage example at talking about how it is unsportsmanlike for athletes to do it, intentional tripping may be intended. I saw Category:Tripping but only one of the images really illustrates this action, namely this one, and that is kind of grainy and not of optimal quality (but if nothing better is found, I'd happily use it). I'm surprised there aren't more photos of people tripping as it is a rather basic verb (whether by accident, or by someone else's malice as in the Danish verb). 05:01, 15 April 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply]

You are right, they are somewhat hard to come by. Have you seen File:Football trip.jpg, which I have now categorised properly? Maybe that's more like what you're looking for? Felix QW (talk) 14:10, 14 March 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Fives bat[edit]

Hey all,

I recently wrote a section on Bat Fives, an old English sport here, and I'd like a picture of the bat used. There are several online, but I cannot find one with free use rights. If anyone a) has access to the w:Radley School Archives (they have a couple there) and could take a picture, or could find a copyright-free picture of one, that'd be amazing.

I'm sure she must have gone to at least one public event and subsequently gotten herself photographed by someone who'd have then distributed said photos under a compatible licence. I did find a couple of photos on Flickr with that site's CC 2.0 licence, but everything about them screamed 'Flickrwashing' even before I found out that the account containing the photos had been blacklisted for Flickrwashing, so that's an obvious no-go. - Dvaderv2 (talk) 13:39, 3 January 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Anyone got access to a library stocked with the Journal des Savants?[edit]

Oldest scientific journal in the world by some measures. The July 1817 issue is actually the source for the name of the Bonin Islands and came with a map, which Google's digitization unhelpfully botched. Gallica's missing the issue on their end. The most likely format would be this bound version of the issues Jan. 1816 to Dec. 1817, the first after the hiatus in publication during the Napoleonic Wars, but it was unhelpfully printed without a series number, volume number, or updated colophon. The original issues were all printed at the Royal Printing Office in Paris (A Paris, de l'Imprimerie Royale) and the bound version presumably came out in 1817, 1818, or thereabouts. (Google's version dates it to the first issue included, which is obviously wrong but be copied in any library system.)

In any case, it would be great to get a high resolution version of that map for use here and elsewhere around the net. Literally, there are books that have been published on the Bonins/Ogasawaras that have mentioned the map and then apologized for the inability to find a decent digitized copy of it for inclusion. It'd be nice if someone could fix that and then mention it on the various Bonin/Ogasawara talk pages around the project so it could be worked into the #Name, #History, or #Gallery sections. — LlywelynII 08:27, 24 January 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]

New day and night photos of the Austin skyline[edit]

Hi, everyone! I took an 8-day trip to Austin a couple of weeks ago and really liked the skyline, but I didn't get any really good photos of it with my iPhone 11, and my night pics were just blurs, so I deleted them from my phone. The city has a rapidly changing skyline, and there's a new skyscaper with one curved side toward the western part of Downtown that's very striking, especially when its roof is lit up blue (I think it was) at night, but Commons does not yet have a photo of it or of the skyline including it as a completed building. I believe it's w:Block 185, still described in en.wikipedia as "final completion is expected for Q2 2022." I really have two motives for hoping one or more of you excellent photographers takes on this project: (1) I'd like to replace the 2010 skyline photo on the Wikivoyage article, and (2) this is a city with a striking, unique skyline that deserves a Featured Picture set. Any takers? Austin is a great place to visit. -- Ikan Kekek (talk) 22:50, 4 February 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Missing NC/SC flag pictures[edit]

As well as county courthouses, I am trying to get every NC/SC county page to have a picture of their county flag in the infobox.

If there are any North or South Carolinians willing to help, below is a list of all the pages that currently need a photo of their flag.

Please strikethrough any pages that get updated. There might some entries missing from the list but additionally, there are also many poorer quality seal/flag images scattered across NC/SC pages.

Heraldry of Kitson, Hunt, or Toll, with fish or boar's heads eyrant[edit]

Dictionaries say eyrant is used in heraldry to describe birds as "nesting" or "sitting"... but the only uses of the word in blazons I've found, at wikt:Citations:eyrant, describe fish or a boar's head. Can anyone find images of those coats, namely Kitson/Kytson of Hengrave in Suffolk ("Sable, three lucies eyrant Argent, a chief Or" / "fielde Sable three Lucyes eyrant argent, a chief golde"); Hunt of Paddon (crest: "a demy luce in pall bende of vj peces gold and asur eyrant"); or Toll (crest: "bores hed coppe eyrant sable armed the snowt...")? This would help Wiktionary determine what eyrant means in those blazons: e.g. is it a heraldic use of errant to mean...what? Is it a weirdly common misspelling of erect? Or of haurient/hauriant? (I suppose "coppe eyrant" is a weird, weird error for eradicated...?) -sche (talk) 20:11, 18 May 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Maps of some temple complexes in India[edit]

There are several temple complexes in India and many of them prohibit mobile phones or similar electronic equipments inside them. Therefore, I think we should create static maps of them so that people can navigate inside the temple complexes without carrying any electronic devices by printing those maps. Examples of temple complexes in India include Padmanabhaswamy Temple, Jagannath Temple, Puri, Kashi Vishwanath Temple, Madurai Meenakshi Temple etc. Sbb1413 (he) (talkcontribs) 17:42, 27 October 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Non-gif format for Images on the Voyager Golden Record[edit]

When this discussion is archived, please drop a link at Category talk:Images on the Voyager Golden Record.

Category:Images on the Voyager Golden Record currently only contain low-quality images in the gif format, which among other things only allow 256 unique colors. Compare to File:Voyager golden record 13 earth.gif: even though the png has fewer pixels at 477×382, the text edges appear smoother, presumably because no color quantization compromise was done. Similarly, the Principia page is much more readable than in the gif we have.

The actual images should have all analogue levels, being 512 lines tall. In square pixels, it should be about 639×512 based on image size. If someone could find images of that size without significant artifacts, even better. If not, I still think replacing the gifs with pngs would be an improvement.

I've tried the following sources, but none is better than

Yes, but I've no idea how to actually take screenshots from videos. Usually I go full screen, take a picture and then crop, but some of the free videos are in YouTube's shorts format so I cannot get the highest quality image. Spinixster (talk) 08:00, 25 November 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Royal Stool from the Kingdom of Benin[edit]

I have done quite a deep search on categories related to the Kingdom of Benin but could not find this particular image of the Royal Stool from the Kingdom of Benin. Can this one from the British Museum be uploaded please:

It will be added to articles like w:Battle of Ekiokpagha where the stool in question was mentioned.

Many thanks! Vanderwaalforces (talk) 23:00, 25 November 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Gillette Guard razor[edit]

One of the most popular razor in the world, but not well known in the West. I'm not sure of all the countries where it is available, but India and South Africa are two countries I know of.

Mostly for the Gillette Guard (Q123556070) Wikidata item for now, but also to make the illustration of various Wikipedia articles on razors and shaving more internationally relevant. (talk) 17:27, 26 November 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Photos of Carissa Etienne[edit]

I found two photos of Carissa Etienne on Flickr but I'm not sure if they could be uploaded to Commons and used in the respective articles. The currently available photo should be replaced in my opinion. These are the respective links:

Update image of Codex Gigas[edit]

This image of Codex Gigas is low resolution. There is a high resolution version here on this page (image 3 of 19) of the Kungliga biblioteket. Can someone please update it? -Artanisen (talk) 04:59, 3 December 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Bauer Media Group[edit]

Rebranded. Do you want to replace File:Logo Bauer Media Group 2012.png with this SVG? I don't think the licence on the existing image is right – the uploader is unlikely to be in the position to release the old logo under such a non-restrictive licence (I'd bet real money they're not) – but the new one should now be used. Sorry if this is wrong/wrong place/inappropriate, Commons is not something I'm familiar with. 18:20, 4 December 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]
