Just a thought… I'm sure someone else can come up with something better. Useddenim (talk) 14:04, 22 July 2013 (UTC)

BSicon barnstar.png

Moved from Talk:BSicon/Icon topology and semantics

As said somewhere else we “need” a barnstar. Here’s a suggestion — you'll need to check it at my user page at wp:pt because Commons lacks multiple overlay support (something else we need to fix); it could be recreated as a single SVG file. -- Tuválkin 14:17, 22 July 2013 (UTC)


What has really been bugging me lately is the lack of consistency across pages. The diagrams are often placed in different spots in each thread, sometimes under its own sectional header, sometimes in the infobox. I think we should standardise where the diagrams should be placed.

The two most popular placements; in the infobox or under a header would be preferred. Deonyi 07:08, 24 July 2013 (UTC)

That’s a matter pertaining to each project, not to Commons. I agree it should be standartized, in principle (many exceptions, though), but each project has its own policies and technical details concerning infoboxes and the like. Also, the standartization you seek will be only possible when all projects share the same templates. -- Tuválkin 10:02, 24 July 2013 (UTC)
They do not share the same templates? If you mean infoboxes, depending on the placement, you could update it to include the map or remove the particular code and place it on its own.Deonyi 00:56, 27 July 2013 (UTC)
I meant the BS-templates — they need to be synchronized across projects before any other standartization is even possible. That’s one of our goals and one of our open tasks. -- Tuválkin 10:26, 27 July 2013 (UTC)

Locks icons are scrambled[edit]

Hi, a number of lock icons seem to be scrambled. The page is still there, but the actual icon does not display, and it has caused mayhem to break out on the waterways maps on en:Wikipedia. So far, I have found   (uFGATEd),   (uFGATEu) and   (uSTAIRd). Bob1960evens (talk) 10:16, 28 November 2017 (UTC)

I have now reported these on Phabricator. Bob1960evens (talk) 14:07, 28 November 2017 (UTC)
These files appear to be valid SVG images, except that that they lack two or three features which are not, strictly speaking, required; but some user agents may fail to process them properly if these features are absent. These are: (i) a DTD - the line
<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8" standalone="no"?>
may be inserted at the very start to fix this; (ii) there is no SVG version information, so the opening <svg> tag should be given the attributes xmlns="" version="1.1" in addition to those that it already has. --Redrose64 (talk; at English Wikipedia) 15:53, 28 November 2017 (UTC)
I think it is more serious than the svg. Aklapper, who is dealing with the Phabricator report, I think, suggests they are generating an HTTP 429 error, and commons fails to load the files. It has just started happening, and my setup has not changed for years. Bob1960evens (talk) 13:58, 29 November 2017 (UTC)
Phabricator T181507 has been closed as declined. The error has only just occurred, and the files have displayed correctly for years. I have tried adding various stuff to the front of the file, in line with other icons that still work, but BSicon_uFGATEd.svg still fails to display. Bob1960evens (talk) 14:38, 29 November 2017 (UTC)
After a second attempt, uFGATEd eventually displayed properly. I will try the others. Bob1960evens (talk) 15:02, 29 November 2017 (UTC)
