Scalable Vector Graphics (SVG)
Thank you for uploading some images!
Did you know that the SVG format is often the best alternative for this type of image? Scalable Vector Graphics have a lot of advantages: They scale better, the file size is usually smaller then raster graphics, and they are easier to modify and translate, helping Wikimedia to distribute knowledge to all of the world. A lot of modern programs support SVG export, though the result is not always what you may expect. If you have questions, don't hesitate to ask me, a member of the Graphic Lab, or the Graphics village pump. Uploading images in SVG format isn't mandatory, but it would help. (Just to avoid any misunderstandings, please don't just put the raster image into a svg container as embedded raster.) Thanks, and happy editing!
Gadget Update: UserMessages
Thanks for testing and using AxUserMsg.js . This is essentially important for developers and highly appreciated. The script is now available in your preferences. This will also speed-up page loading.
Please remove the line
importScript("User:Rillke/AxUserMsg.js") from your common.js before activating the ordinary gadget.
If you have questions, don't hesitate to ask me or put them here. Even if you dislike a new feature.
I'm get pushing around ...
Another guy, another try :-)
Please have look at Commons:Village_pump#Maintaining_.28and_thus_editing.29_SVGs.27_text_like_wiki_articles. Now 2 weeks are gone and I got no constructive feedback from any responsible admin, not to mention a developper (from bugzilla?). Thus I like to repeat my still unanswered question: Whom must I contact on (commons-)wikimedia, or to which sub-community of wikipedia must I go to explain my wish / demand / proposal of this to get an expert peer-reviewing and a realization hopefully. User:Rillke suggested that I should ask you. Achim1999 (talk) 15:49, 22 June 2012 (UTC)

Gallery redesign feedback
- When developing tools I found the feedback given by Jean-Frédéric, LX and Rd232 very helpful.
- It would be preferable, if the user can switch the view in categories (e.g. showing all captions)
- Is it possible to include the file name as a HTML5 data attribute? This would make it easier for third party tools to extract it instead of doing fancy things with the a[href] attribute or the img[src] attribute.
- Will the No lines example work as expected in RTL languages?
- How many feedback would you like to get? Should I issue a Watchlist Notice?
The redisign should not replace the current design. There should be an attribute to control the design, for example
<gallery style="noLines">. --220.127.116.11 05:22, 17 June 2013 (UTC)
- If you look at the example's source code, you'll see that exactly this is done there. -- Rillke(q?) 08:28, 17 June 2013 (UTC)
- The image description text should not be bold by default. The possibility to format the text freely should remain. Regards, --IW 17:45, 17 June 2013 (UTC)
Did you know Help:QuickDelete?
Re: Why both TIFF and JPG?
On why some of our most prolific batch uploaders upload both versions, the reason is mainly that many archive/GLAM people adore lossless TIFF format; more modern people may instead like lossless PNGs. However, most actual users want JPG versions; this need is surely alleviated by recent thumbnailing improvements, but possibly not eliminated. --Nemo 08:21, 12 September 2013 (UTC)
Help purging one djvu thumbnail
Hi, Bawolff. I'm trying to refresh one thumbnail and I can't do it. I've been trying all the actions described at Help pages, since some months ago, but they don't work in this specific page. Other times they worked OK in other DjVu pages by adding the "?action=purge". I ask you for help because of the message at Help talk:Purge#Alternative to advanced purge. Any help is appreciated.
The image is https://upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedia/commons/thumb/b/b3/Llegendas_catalanas_%281881%29.djvu/page201-1000px-Llegendas_catalanas_%281881%29.djvu.jpg . This 1000px old version is wrong if it beings with "trició".
The newest version begins with "ulls". You can see it at any other resolution (e.g. 800px: https://upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedia/commons/thumb/b/b3/Llegendas_catalanas_%281881%29.djvu/page201-800px-Llegendas_catalanas_%281881%29.djvu.jpg).
Because of this, it's not the same https://ca.wikisource.org/w/index.php?title=P%C3%A0gina:Llegendas_catalanas_%281881%29.djvu/201&action=edit than https://ca.wikisource.org/wiki/P%C3%A0gina:Llegendas_catalanas_%281881%29.djvu/201 .
It's not urgent. I hope it's not a bugg.
