File:Euglena scheme no arrows.svg[edit]

Were the "problems" real problems, or were they just because the thumbnails hadn't yet caught up with the dimensions of the new file version? In the latter case, the problem usually fixes itself after a few days (and may not appear to all people browsing the article); if this seems to be taking too long, you can help it along by "purging" and/or refreshing your local caches...

1) When it have been cropped the images used in templates became too large in some language versions (example). 2) After the first reverting aspect ratio of some thumbnails haven't been reverted. Cash cleanup had no effect. Alexander Shatulin (talk) 10:01, 19 November 2012 (UTC)

Category: Coonskin caps[edit]

Do you not believe, we should let it in the upper category: Bearskin hats, because (from English Wikipedia): "In many languages, the raccoon is named for its characteristic dousing behavior in conjunction with that language's term for bear, for example Waschbär in German, orsetto lavatore in Italian, mosómedve in Hungarian and araiguma in Japanese". In German the family "Procyonidae" is called Kleinbären (little bears)? Regards from there --Kürschner (talk) 22:29, 25 November 2012 (UTC)

Taking into consideration zoological systematics, raccoons are not bears. Vernacular names in some languages may be misleading. Also Wikimedia Commons is international project, not German, Italian, Japanese etc. Finally bearskin cap and coonskin cap are different sorts of headgear, usually not associated one with other (see English Wikipedia articles).
