This page is an Automatically generated list of the 200 most used Images that should use vector graphics.

The images are only checked for use in Articles (not talk pages etc.) on the 20 largest Wikipedias.

The code for making this list is available here.

Why only check articles (or Wikipedia for that matter)? This way just returns a bunch of stub pictures that, IMO, aren't that important. They're almost always used at very small sizes and can change whenever someone feels like changing the template. I'm curious as to what the most used images that should be SVG are in general.

If you include images on talk pages then you'll get far more images that are just used at small sizes on templates and will just get changed whenever someone feels like changing the template. Similarly with non-Wikipedia wikis that don't use images to illustrate as much. Looking only at WP article pages is the closest you'll get to seeing images that are particularly valuable, IMO.

Once SVG version is created, is there a bot that change the usages from png to svg file on wikipedias ? Or should i ask one to do it ?--Lilyu (talk) 07:09, 6 April 2009 (UTC)


Would it be possible to run this script on a more regular basis? --Beao (talk) 19:53, 1 October 2009 (UTC)

I have a bot ready for this (and similar categories for which such sorting is useful, such as Category:Images with watermarks), but didn't find the time to make a bot request yet. Maybe this week-end. How often do you think it would be necessary to update this page? –Tryphon 11:37, 2 October 2009 (UTC)
Well, as often as possible. I think from once a day to once a week is acceptable. --Beao (talk) 17:57, 2 October 2009 (UTC)

Is it really regularly updated now ? Some svg conversions of items of the list have been done a few months ago. Arnaud Ramey (talk) 13:02, 25 August 2010 (UTC)

Message Tryphon, he is the only person with the code to do the updates.--Svgalbertian (talk) 16:17, 25 August 2010 (UTC)
✓ Done Let's wait for the answer, so. Arnaud Ramey (talk) 11:57, 26 August 2010 (UTC)

Please crawl through subcategories too.[edit]

Please crawl through subcategories too. They're images that should use vector graphics too. --Beao 12:07, 20 October 2009 (UTC)
