New template[edit]


Plz, replace the current variant by Template:Vector-Images.com/proposal (2nd) via history union. Alex Spade 11:53, 15 March 2008 (UTC)

I can't understand that, but it's unprotected now, so you can make your changes. However, I do not want to see any sign of edit-warring. (I'm saying this because of your involvement on the DR.) I really don't like having to protect templates like this that are in a state of transition. Work's going to be needed to be done and I know if you have to wait on us admins, it'll take a lot longer than it should. :) So play nice. - Rocket000 06:00, 16 March 2008 (UTC)


Should there be a deadline for images which are missing the required parameter? /Lokal_Profil 23:30, 15 March 2008 (UTC)

I would say May 15th (that seems to be a date I use alot for image tagging). User:Zscout370 (Return fire) 08:31, 16 March 2008 (UTC)
The deadline can be determined after (1) some admin will have closed del.req.; (2) the bot will have autoretagged some images. Alex Spade 10:36, 16 March 2008 (UTC)
I've started to go through the non updated images and tagging them with no license. It's going to take a while but at least this way it will get noticed by the uploaders and hopefully we will stop getting new vector-images.com uploads. Also I think it might be worth rephrasing the template to make it clear that all the images are copyrighted by default and that those that aren't are the special cases linked to national legslation, hence the parameter. Currently failing to formulate that in a good way so I won't update the tamplate now. Any suggestion are more then welcome though. /Lokal_Profil 23:49, 9 August 2008 (UTC)


{{editprotected}} Remove {{Vector-Images.com|PD-PD-BY-exempt}} case - the BY-exempt only for main state COA (and its subvariants). The municipal symbols are copyrighted. Alex Spade (talk) 11:46, 15 December 2008 (UTC)

I agree with this conclusion, since Belarusian copyrights law use single flag and coat of arms, not plural. Official municipal COAs marked as copyrighted in С.Я. Рассадін. А.М. Міхальчанка. Гербы і сцягі гарадоў і раёнаў Беларусі. Мінск. "Беларусь". 2005. ISBN 985-01-0530-5.
I think only simple geometric images or self-made COAs based on nobility COAs designs could be kept.
EugeneZelenko (talk) 15:52, 15 December 2008 (UTC)
Removed. Now we only need to find the images using {{Vector-Images.com|PD-PD-BY-exempt}} and tag them. /Lokal_Profil 20:39, 15 December 2008 (UTC)
Fine by me. User:Zscout370 (Return fire) 20:50, 15 December 2008 (UTC)

Edit request[edit]


Could somebody please add {{deprecated}} to the template. Cheers --Cwbm (commons) (talk) 12:20, 29 January 2010 (UTC)

✓  Done --EugeneZelenko (talk) 15:32, 29 January 2010 (UTC)
How comes? It's not supposed to be replaced with something else as much as I understand. Like some templates are supposed to be subsituted, this one is supposed to be used with a parameter. Undo? 07:31, 30 January 2010 (UTC)

Well I don't see the point in using it, since it can be replaced by the corresponding license tag. But in any case the {{deprecated}} must be in noinclude-tags. Sorry for that. Cheers --Cwbm (commons) (talk) 11:10, 30 January 2010 (UTC)

It seems to work as an optional source tag and would be the prefered way to give a source as also provides useful link to copyright status discussion. 13:28, 30 January 2010 (UTC)
I would also like to say that this template does help identify the source of many images that are poorly tagged.--Svgalbertian (talk) 04:42, 31 January 2010 (UTC)
commented out edit request. It seems to be fixed. --Jarekt (talk) 21:34, 4 February 2010 (UTC)
No, with the points raised it's quite clear that this template isn't deprecated and edit request should be undone. Any other opinions? Noinclude tags were fixed indeed. 19:09, 7 February 2010 (UTC)

The description says that the tag is obsolete. -- There is no reason in this case to combine source tag with license tag. --Cwbm (commons) (talk) 07:45, 10 February 2010 (UTC)

It says to use it with a parameter (with appropriate license). Therefore its use without parameter is obsolete, not the tag itself. I believe there is difference between being supposed to be used with a parameter and not to be used (deprecated). 16:11, 10 February 2010 (UTC)
I guess it should be change to say use the license templates (PD-RU-exempt, PD-Coa-Germany, etc.) directly then. I always saw the parameter as a transition rather than a new use for the deprecated tag. Rocket000 (talk) 02:31, 11 February 2010 (UTC)

The tag is deprecated as a license template. Full stopp. If you want a source template make one that has any use for example include a link to the picture id. --Cwbm (commons) (talk) 12:03, 12 February 2010 (UTC)
