Hey how can i attribute the work and edit the map?

MWP defeated[edit]

Oh well... I thought this day would never happen but to my shock User:AGK gave me a range block I cannot evade... *sigh*...Its such a sad day... Oh well sorry if I pissed you off in these past few months...--Mr Wiki Pro (talk) 19:53, 6 June 2014 (UTC)

Hey, man. I forgive you. Face-smile.svg Just please try your best not to cause anymore trouble. I don't know just how hard that would be for you, but you have to give it a shot. If you replace your disruptive activities with positive contributions, I promise that it will go a long way towards rebuilding others' trust in you and a possible re-admission to edit on Wikipedia again. Even if you ban on Wikipedia isn't lifted, you can still refrain from socking there, and you can definitely make positive contributions here. I saw how you combated User:IPhonehurricane95's vandalism on Commons, and I would really like to thank you for that. You really are capable of doing great things on these project sites, and you should really focus on making good edits like those. Your experience here will be a lot more enjoyable here if you do so, I can promise you that. BlueHypercane761 (talk) 02:43, 9 June 2014 (UTC)
Face-smile.svg Thanks, I have no intention of returning to disrupt the English Wikipedia. I never was a good troll because I always felt bad after trolling someone. As for Iphonehurricane, it's a second nature to revert him. Over at the Simple English Wikipedia (were I'm far more active) we get some Long-term vandals ranging from the Disney vandal bambifan101 to hoax article created The Deadly TV Series.--Mr Wiki Pro (talk) 15:00, 9 June 2014 (UTC)
Well, that's good to know. Face-smile.svg And I will always be fighting against vandals and sockmasters whenever I encounter them. BlueHypercane761 (talk) 07:25, 10 June 2014 (UTC)
Ok so it looks like I may have been fibbing when I said the above comment said the above comment but for what it's worth I have now stopped and I am very sorry for annoying you.--Druddigon (talk) 11:24, 17 October 2015 (UTC)
Well, you do look much better off doing anti-vandalism work rather than the socking. BlueHypercane761 (talk) 09:30, 19 October 2015 (UTC)

Thanks[edit]

I used one of your photos at the WP Rainbow article. Thanks for the great photo! 216.21.205.118 10:48, 11 July 2014 (UTC)

You're welcome. I enjoy adding photos like those to the photo collection at Commons. Face-smile.svg BlueHypercane761 (talk) 23:44, 11 July 2014 (UTC)

Sorry[edit]

I cannot evade Elockid's rangeblock. Anyways, I'm really sorry for the annoyance I caused you over the past year. I have found better stuff to do than messing around on Wikipedia. Btw some socks written in Traditional Chinese 巴哈姆特電玩資訊站 are probably socks of User:Nipponese Dog Calvero.

Again, sorry for the trouble I caused you and best wishes to you in the future :)

Sincerely, iPhonehurricane95

Alright, I accept the apology and I will remove those socks from the list. But seriously, please refrain from making unconstructive edits/creating new sockpuppets in the future. I know that you're mad at being blocked, and most recently, infuriated at the unexplained changes in the TC colors, but honestly, so was I. It shocked the living heck out of me, but I knew that screaming out my hatred/rage wasn't going to get me anywhere. You don't have to make disruptive edits to get your point across, in fact, doing so will only worse other users' trust in you. If you have decided to quit, please show us, but if you really want to return to positive editing someday, I highly recommend that you take Wikipedia's Standard Offer and wait 6 months before making an unblock appeal at WP:UTURS. But hey, thanks for the apology, I really appreciate it. Face-smile.svg BlueHypercane761 (talk) 18:59, 16 August 2014 (UTC)

Just a little tip: don't do anything that might upset anyone else or arouse further suspicion, and you should be fine. Face-smile.svg BlueHypercane761 (talk) 19:01, 16 August 2014 (UTC)
Ok. I'm done with socking for good so you won't see any more socks from me. Watch out for sock usernames in the future like Elockid is a neggir, Suuck my cock, etc. those are socks of LTAs more pervasive and are more destructive in severity. Usernames such as Jeffrey24hui are obviously spambots since spambots often use real world names with a bunch of junk in them. Also, I also happen to know that Ginsuloft, Gbgfbgfbgfb, Altigamr, John Daker, David Beals, Evlekis, 1abacada and HoshiNoKaabii2000 are some vandals who create either often very very offensive usernames or usernames with a bunch of junk in them, have a much higher severity than me, and are more likely to offend and/or attack people. A jjajangmyeon vandal will occasionally create accounts on Wikipedia (often korean usernames) and fill pages with korean junk. Nipponese dog calvero will almost always create attacking usernames in traditional Chinese and sometimes In Japanese as well. Please watch out and don't confuse them with the sockpuppet naming patterns I created in the past. Face-wink.svg Again, I am really sorry about the trouble I caused and I promise I won't sock ever again and best wishes to you in the future. Face-smile.svg
Okay. Thanks! I'll definitely keep an eye out for this. And I promise that I will always defend Wikipedia (and other Wikimedia Project sites) whenever I come across any vandal. But thanks for bringing this to my attention. Face-grin.svg BlueHypercane761 (talk) 19:29, 18 August 2014 (UTC)

Abusive Usernames[edit]

Forgive me for interrupting but I have been watching recent changes and the user creation log and I have seen a lot abusive account usernames insulting administrators and checkusers. But I have no idea who is responsible for creating them.--BarsofGold (talk) 02:34, 20 August 2014 (UTC)

It could very well be multiple different users; most likely a completely unrelated user. If any of the usernames do not fit the known pattern of User:IPhonehurricane95's known sockpuppets, then it's probably not him. But if this continues, you should go consult an admin. But definitely make sure that accounts like those get blocked indefinitely. BlueHypercane761 (talk) 10:41, 23 August 2014 (UTC)

Map of the Islamic State[edit]

Hello mate. You are one of the mappers who update the map of ISIS. So I have an update request. Although I can do it myself, I don't want to mess it up so it goes like this: There were many territorial changes in the UNDOF zone (on the De-Facto border with Israel). One of the major reports i"ve got latley was that the Rebels are serounding the Hader village which is 10km north to the current frontline showen in the map and not even showen in the map. The UNDOF zone fronline is one of the most important fronts in the conflict (Because of the relations between Israel and the Rebels). In other words, I am just asking for an update because it wasn't updated for more then a week. And another advice, make the Orange in Lebanon lighter because when it interact with the border itself it makes a white outline which looks really bad in my opinion and it is easly fixed. Bolter21 (talk) 11:50, 18 June 2015 (UTC)

ISIS-Map-Refresh-Cycle[edit]

Hello BlueHypercane761. Thanks so much for the Map about the War in Syria / Iraq! I bet it's a lot of work but i want you to ask if you could update the map 2 or 3 times a week, cause your map is really the best solution to get a great overview about the whole war in Syria and Iraq! Thank you so much! Kind regards! --178.114.102.18 10:19, 14 April 2016 (UTC)

Hello BlueHypercane761! Thank you very much for Map-Update! :)

How Do You Know What to Map?[edit]

Greetings BlueHypercane, I have noticed you have been updating the maps of the Islamic State for quite some time now and I wanted to know how you get the information to update it? In other words, how do you know what to add and subtract? It seems like you know what you're doing and that was a question I had. Thank you. 9:42, 20 June 2015

I have a variety of sources that I use. Mostly, it involves searching the web for new updates on the frontlines, and recently-issued reliable maps. BlueHypercane761 (talk) 23:30, 23 June 2015 (UTC)
You are doing a great job. -- Lindenfreund (talk) 08:43, 16 August 2015 (UTC)

Syrian, Iraqi, and Lebanese insurgencies map[edit]

Hi, could you please explain (or even add to legend) what is the meaning of the "9 points squares" that you have on the map? Eg there are three of them in north Lebanon east of Aarsal. Thanks, QuantumShadow (talk) 10:15, 24 June 2015 (UTC)

They are explained in the map legend of the map's module. I can't really create a detailed legend of all of the icons here on Commons without making a mess. As for the icon, it means that the combatant force marked out has some territorial control in that region. Template:Syrian, Iraqi, and Lebanese insurgencies detailed map - See the map's source template for a more detailed legend. BlueHypercane761 (talk) 21:31, 25 June 2015 (UTC)
Thanks BlueHypercane761! I just missed the link to the template. QuantumShadow (talk) 22:59, 25 June 2015 (UTC)

Battle of Al-Hasakah[edit]

Hello :) After surfing the person who update the map of ISIS for one hour, I find you (I'm new in wikipedia) I wanted to tell you the Hasakah that city recently in conflict is not represented any point.

Sources show that the battle in Hasakah: https://twitter.com/Karybdamoid/status/614484209726566401 http://www.longwarjournal.org/archives/2015/06/islamic-state-uses-us-made-anti-tank-missiles-in-hasakah-offensive.php

Aquati (talk) 20:09, 27 June 2015 (UTC)

I'm sorry, but I can't update the Al-Hasakah city map, since it is an .svg file. I can only copy & paste it into the main map file when other users update it. Anyhow, an update has arrived, so you can expect an update in the situation there. BlueHypercane761 (talk) 21:19, 1 July 2015 (UTC)

Levant Map Scale[edit]

I am looking forward to new maps about the currents situations. Thank you! Would a scale be possible, such as a 100 km or 100 miles bar? -- Simplicius (talk) 12:59, 24 July 2015 (UTC)

I don't have a scale available; however, you could use the one on Google Maps for reference. (By the way, some of the features on the Wikimedia map are slightly misplaced.) BlueHypercane761 (talk) 20:00, 26 July 2015 (UTC)

News on the Libyan Civil War and IS takeover of Qaryatayn in Syria[edit]

First of all I want to thank you for your great work on the maps around the IS-conquests in Syria, Irak, Libya, Lebanon and Nigeria. I have heard some news about some changes in the conflicts in Syria and in Libya.

In Syria, the strategic city of Qaryatayn fell in the hands of the IS. http://www.irishtimes.com/news/world/middle-east/islamic-state-fighters-seize-key-syrian-town-1.2308599

In Libya, the forces of the international recognised governement seem to have withdrawn from the south-eastern city of Kufra/al-Jawf, says the sudanese part of the joint border force: http://www.sudantribune.com/spip.php?article55893 Also it's said that in the city are fights between local residents and foreign fighters. It's not specified which groups are included in the fights, but according to this report this could be clashes between Tebu and Zwai tribes: http://www.laht.com/article.asp?CategoryId=12395&ArticleId=2393268 The tribal conflicts between this two tribes also seem to exist already since a longer time: http://www.aljazeera.com/indepth/features/2012/11/20121118115735549354.html

Maybe it would be good to give Tebu/Toubou forces an own colour on the map for the Libyan War since 2014. The situation there is very unclear, but the Tebu don't seem to support the governement of Tobruk without compromise, and they definitely have their own forces: http://www.aljazeera.com/news/2015/06/tuareg-tebu-fight-proxy-battle-southwest-libya-150610115006475.html This map also shows them as own power(but this map can't be completely right, because according to the report of al-Jazeera directly above, Tuareg forces are slightly allied with the dawn-governement of Tripolis and not with the international recognised governement in Tobruk): https://cdn2.vox-cdn.com/thumbor/KseU31YolSiOmrmLpVkcaoPLZcM%3D/cdn0.vox-cdn.com/uploads/chorus_asset/file/2880228/kyhcrE0.0.png

At last, this map also shows Amazighs as own little power in the conflict, which is also backed by this al-Jazeera report: http://www.aljazeera.com/news/middleeast/2014/12/libya-berbers-fear-ethnic-conflict-2014123065353199495.html

I don't want to stress you in any case with this informations, I just hope you can use them to continue your work on the maps. --Ermanarich (talk) 01:23, 8 August 2015 (UTC)

To add the Amazighs, I would need a new color set, which may not even exist, and most sources say that they back Tobruk-based internationally-recognized government, so that addition may be a bit too complicated. As for the Tebu, they also back the Tobruk Government, for the most part. We really don't have that many colors left (probably none, in fact, at least enough for the contested and military bases symbols), so I don't know if we could add anymore groups. The map has already become a lot more complicated, and we don't want our viewers getting confused. It's best to narrow them down to the alliances/primary combatants. As for the Tuaregs, they're included in the map because they are kind of a stand-alone group; according to various sources, some of them support the Tobruk Government, while other support the Dawn Government. Anyhow, thanks for providing all of this information. If anything changes on the battlefield enough to be marked, the map will be updated to reflect that change. BlueHypercane761 (talk) 02:59, 8 August 2015 (UTC)

By the way, I won't be able to make regular updates all of the time. Recently, my updates have averaged about once a week (with exceptions during major developments), but after mid-August, when the school year begins, I will be quite busy, and so may only be able to update the map around once a month. However, when I find the time, I will update the map. As for the Fall of Qaryatayn, that change should be included in the next map update. Face-smile.svg BlueHypercane761 (talk) 03:02, 8 August 2015 (UTC)

Thanks for the fast answer! I didn't know about this problem with the colour sets, or more exact, I know nothing about this type of map editing, even if it really interests me. And for the frequency of map updates: I even wondered how you manage to do this so often! :) --Ermanarich (talk) 20:00, 9 August 2015 (UTC)

Work on Iraq/Syria map[edit]

I would like to thank you for keeping that updated.It is one of the main ways I stay informed on this topic.--2601:546:8000:1B2E:8CEE:B24F:CC5F:6B45 04:27, 26 September 2015 (UTC)

No problem! Face-grin.svg I'm going to be much busier from this point forward, so regular updates to the map will only be happening around every 1-2 weeks. But I'm still going to try to keep the map refreshed to some extent, as I want people to know what the situation on the ground is like out there. BlueHypercane761 (talk) 05:48, 16 October 2015 (UTC)

File:Milky Way-Andromeda Collision close-up.jpg[edit]

Hello BlueHypercane761, during my research about the collision of Andromeda and milky way I found the picture above. On the description page it is written, that is your own work. But I found the image on a NASA's website [1]. So the Creative Commons licence does not seem to fit to the picture. I have changed the licence and the information template so far. I would be happy for more clearness about it. I am looking forward for your message. Best regards alkab (talk) 01:54, 12 November 2015 (UTC)

Thanks. Technically, I cropped the image, so it counts as "retouched," but I wasn't able to find the appropriate template at the moment. I also had my suspicions that it was a NASA image, but the website that I found it on didn't really attribute it to anyone, and I didn't want to risk guessing it wrong. BlueHypercane761 (talk) 06:21, 12 November 2015 (UTC)
I don't want to be fastidious or mean but if you found it on a website you have to mention the website. ;-) Or at least say that you cropped it from something. Even it was public domain our project requires naming the source and the author and the history of the file (e.g. a cropping). Next time you can look on the template what is given there. But I hope you find more pictures like that which are suited for Commons. Best regards alkab (talk) 13:05, 12 November 2015 (UTC)

A barnstar for you![edit]

I give you this barnstar for the map you've created for the Sinai insurgency map! Good work. Bolter21 (talk) 12:40, 12 November 2015 (UTC)
Thanks! I really appreciate this barnstar! Also, you might want to see File:Boko Haram insurgency map.png as well. No had made any battle maps for those insurgencies involving ISIL, so I decided to go ahead and generate maps for both of those regions. Face-smile.svg BlueHypercane761 (talk) 23:18, 15 November 2015 (UTC)

Thank you for map updates[edit]

First a foremost thank you for your map contributions, this has been very useful! I also wanted to say that i believe the Syrian Civil War map had successful update which you reverted stating unsuccessful. Maybe a mistake? I dont want to be involved in editing the maps or reverting as im not contributing there anything useful anyway. Anyway keep up the great effort! Hammer5000 (talk) 14:04, 27 November 2015 (UTC)

There are a few areas in the Syrian Civil War module that were (possibly still are) outdated, so I didn't incorporate those changes. Also, I don't really make changes in an area if it appears confusing, or I get conflicting reports about the situation in that given area, until I can find more reliable sources supporting a certain change. However, the map still gets updated as a whole, whenever there is a notable advance (but sometimes, I forget). By the way, I appreciate your gratitude. It's not an easy job. :) BlueHypercane761 (talk) 00:02, 30 November 2015 (UTC)
Given the recent advanchement by the Syrian Army can you please make an new update for the community. I agree sometimes it is still unclear what the situation is. Many thanks for the good work you have done on the map. LeonardH — Preceding unsigned comment added by LeonardH (talk • contribs) 10:22, 19 December 2015 (UTC)

Jarabulus[edit]

Are there any news from Jarabulus? Why do the media tell so less about the single hotspots? -- Simplicius (talk) 02:08, 7 December 2015 (UTC)

I don't know. As for Jarabulus, I heard that the YPG ended their offensive on the city (late in November), and pulled back to positions east of the Euphrates River. It also coincided with the ending of the regular Turkish shelling of areas near Tell Abyad and Kobanî. I don't think that the YPG or SDF is going to be making a move on Jarabulus anytime soon. BlueHypercane761 (talk) 08:24, 9 December 2015 (UTC)
Ok, there was some sort of withdrawal. -- Simplicius (talk) 19:08, 9 December 2015 (UTC)
Yes, there was. But the YPG is still holding control over the mud banks and settlements in the middle of the river itself. BlueHypercane761 (talk) 20:47, 25 December 2015 (UTC)

Ramadi and Tishrin Dam[edit]

Hey don't forget to update map for Ramadi and Tishrin Dam Gmoney293 (talk) 02:42, 28 December 2015 (UTC)

✓ Done. The changes will be included in the next update. BlueHypercane761 (talk) 08:38, 28 December 2015 (UTC)

News say that ISIS is loosing ground near Syrian Army territory, but the map shows the contrary[edit]

While we hear in the news that ISIS is loosing more and more territory to the Syrian government and the insurgents, the map shows an important gain of territories of ISIS from the Syrian government forces. Is the map accurate, or the news are liying? Sylvain1975 (talk) 10:28, 28 December 2015 (UTC)

It might be a correction in frontline boundaries that I forgot to implement earlier (I actually made 2 mistakes on the ISIL-Syrian Government front). Outside of that, the frontline near Mahin seems to be moving back and forth (it recently stalled on the outskirts of Mahin). The frontline in eastern Homs appears to have stalled for the moment, and the frontline shifts near Lake Jabbul has slowed, although the Syrian Army appears to be gradually advancing in that region. ISIL actually controls a few villages on the northern shore of the lake; I forgot to include them in an earlier update. The Syrian Army is advancing north of Kuweires, but until the map uploaders who created the inset map update the Kuweires region, I can't include any changes there in this map. Hope this answers your questions. :) BlueHypercane761 (talk) 08:33, 28 December 2015 (UTC)

Where is the proof that ISIS controls half of the Syrian border with Israel?[edit]

Would you or anyone else creating the maps of Syria please provide some reliable sources for ISIS controlling half of Syrian border with Israel. This seems to be a major mistake/exaggeration or completely under reported situation. Thank you for your hard work on these mapsMonopoly31121993 (talk) 21:15, 6 January 2016 (UTC)

The Yarmouk Martyr's Brigade (an ISIL affiliate) controls the area, which means that ISIL has control of the region. The sources were provided by another user on the source module back in May 2015. BlueHypercane761 (talk) 01:53, 11 January 2016 (UTC)

Question[edit]

How do I edit maps in professionally such as a map of Yemen's civil war in 2015 or the Iraqi insurgency or the Syrian civil war--MuhammedIQ (talk) 02:02, 11 January 2016 (UTC)

You will need some kind of photoshop or photo editing software, and the skills and experience to do so. By the way, all of the changes made can only be based on reliable sources, often similar (but not always) to the changes seen on the source modules on Wikipedia. BlueHypercane761 (talk) 02:03, 11 January 2016 (UTC)

Do I download Photoshop, Is it possible to teach me how to do it? Is there a video on YouTube or something I'm seeing?--MuhammedIQ (talk) 02:14, 13 January 2016 (UTC)

Download or purchase Picpic or Photoshop. Or search the web for another photo-editing software. (You can use Microsoft Paint, if you have it, but I'm not sure just how well that would work out.) As for the videos, try looking up video tutorials on YouTube. BlueHypercane761 (talk) 00:56, 24 January 2016 (UTC)

Thanks for your job![edit]

I'm passing here to thanks for your tireless job with the Syrian and Iraqi maps. I am personally accompanying for a year to follow the updates of the fronts through this very detailed map. I am currently making a videomap for Youtube, showing the changes everyday in this war, very detailed, and needless to say, for the last few months of the war you will be my main source.

But I have one thing to ask you. Along with another colleague planning to make a map of the Kurdish insurgency in Turkey, following the model of how you make your maps. How do I do? I take the template and simply paint the areas between the cities with Paint, or I need to use InkScape to manipulate the image as .svg? A simple Wikipedian 01:44, 9 February 2016 (UTC)

hey how can i attribute the work i didin't understand it at all

You will have to copy or screenshot the map template, and then add color using a photoshop tool, such as Adobe Photoshop, Microsoft Paint, or PicPick. As the the rest, best of luck with your map editing skills! You'll improve with time, but it's best to get used to it somewhat before generating a fully-fledged map.

New vector maps![edit]

Hello! Just wanted to notice that the vector versions of the current civil wars maps ,except Iraq and Syria, has been uploaded. As you may know vector images can take much less size than other types of images (.png) and can be zoomed without quality loss. If you want to make any updates please make sure to apply them on new vector maps .

Syrian spillover[edit]

Hi! I'm writing you about few things on your map;
a) as I can see SAA has eliminated IS pocket in NE Aleppo; https://twitter.com/A7_Mirza/status/701375407732424705

b) Why are some SDF controled towns marked as FSA co-controled? Shouldn't colors like this be more appropriate https://upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedia/commons/archive/8/88/20160221040242!Syrian_civil_war.png ? Look at wiki-detailed map; https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Template:Syrian,_Iraqi,_and_Lebanese_insurgencies_detailed_map

c) also around Tishirin and Mare fronts should be more like this; https://upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedia/commons/archive/1/11/20160221040552!Syrian%2C_Iraqi%2C_and_Lebanese_insurgencies.png look at this http://syria.liveuamap.com/ and this; https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Template:Syrian,_Iraqi,_and_Lebanese_insurgencies_detailed_map The same goes for north-east Latakia, Tuz Khomato and similar fronts... --Čeha (talk) 19:07, 21 February 2016 (UTC)

Latakia is difficult for me to work with, because the area on the source module is very crowded right now; I can only update it when the frontlines "relax" (or straighten out) somewhat. As for the other frontlines, SDF press released stated that they repelled all of the counterattacks near TIshrin and Ayn Issa in mid-January 2016. As for Mare', the SDF has been confirmed to have a presence on the town's outskirts; 6 members of the US-vetted New Syrian Forces (technically part of the SDF) is currently present inside of Mare' right now, so for all intents and purposes, the SDF has some degree of a presence through the town itself. As for the colors, I can't change all SDF-held locations to purely yellow, because that would imply that only Kurdish forces are in control/governing those sites. Eventually, if the SDF advances into Ar-Raqqah, the YPG isn't going to administer it, their Arab allies will, and when SDF forces begin to clear the Northern Aleppo, they'll probably share more governing responsibility with their Arab allies than in any other place they have held so far. BlueHypercane761 (talk) 21:03, 21 February 2016 (UTC)
Also, I will update the east Aleppo region today. It's a challenge for me to photoshop that part of the map, and I would prefer copying from an updated version of the source map itself, but I can manage. BlueHypercane761 (talk) 21:04, 21 February 2016 (UTC)
Ok, great, but just one more question. SDF should be YPG (Kurds) and its allies (Assirians and Arabs among others). Shouldn't the city marks on map then be half yellow (for Kurds/YPF) and half some other color, not those from FSA?
Good work with changes. It seems that SAA has regained control on the Allepo road https://twitter.com/miladvisor/status/701852371136204801 --Čeha (talk) 20:35, 22 February 2016 (UTC)
Non-YPG/Kurdish rebels are considered part of the mainstream rebel forces, otherwise they are directly allied with (or operating under) the YPG. Also, the Syrian Army hasn't reopened the road yet, per Syrian government supply route to Aleppo still cut as fierce clashes continue. BlueHypercane761 (talk) 05:18, 23 February 2016 (UTC)
Ok, tnx--Čeha (talk) 08:45, 23 February 2016 (UTC)

Syrian, Iraqi and Lebanese war[edit]

Hello there. How do you correct map of the war in Syria and Iraq? Can you teach me? have a nice day.Mehk63 (talk) 15:03, 3 March 2016 (UTC)

You will need a photoshop or photo editing software, such as Microsoft Paint of PicPick. And of course, you will have to build up photo-editing skills. There are tutorials on YouTube, in case you are interested. BlueHypercane761 (talk) 00:41, 6 March 2016 (UTC)

Al-Bukamal[edit]

First of all, congratulations and thanks for your hard and good work. I see al-Bukamal is now contested between SAA and ISIS. Do you have more information on this? It might be a stupid question, but where did those SAA troops come from as the rest of the area is still under ISIS control?

It's actually a local tribal uprising. It was marked with the red contested symbol because it was supported heavily by the Russian and Syrian Air Forces. However, the ISIL apparently quelled the uprising last week. BlueHypercane761 (talk) 02:43, 14 March 2016 (UTC)

Viewing outdated maps issue[edit]

Hello there! When I click on the March 27th version of the map, it shows the older March 20th version. Do you know how to fix this so that it shows the new version of the map? Thank you!

If refreshing the browser doesn't work, then you have to purge your computer's cache. Cleaning up your temporary files could also do the trick. If none of this works, it could be an internet connection problem, or an issue with the website's connection itself. BlueHypercane761 (talk) 02:57, 20 April 2016 (UTC)

Yemeni Civil War.svg[edit]

Hi There are pov pushing with using Sabanews. --Panam2014 (talk) 11:23, 19 April 2016 (UTC)

I'm sorry, I really don't push anything there, I only make changes after the template. Discussions need to be made there and not edit wars at the .svg file, especially because the sources that say that the government recaptured al Houtah/Lahij and that Sirwah is under control of the Houthis hasn't anything to do with pov pushing or Sabanews. Discuss it out what's the situation in the areas where it's unclear and I will show it on the .svg map, but don't just start to revert blindly.--Ermanarich (talk) 11:37, 19 April 2016 (UTC)

@Ermanarich: the pov pusher used pro Houthi source here and here. Please discuss here. commons is independent from en wikipedia. --Panam2014 (talk) 17:48, 20 April 2016 (UTC)

Regarding your map for the Spillover of the Syrian Civil War i think you should revise and add Turkey, marking the territories controlled by Turkish Regime and the Regions Controlled or Influenced by Kurdish Freedom Fighters. Check this page and map for the Turkish Civil War / Kurdish-Turkish conflict (2015-present)

Spoilover of the Syrian Civil War - Turkey should be added, Turkey Regime controlled territories/ Kurdish contolled or influenced Areas[edit]

It would be too complicated to add Turkey at this time. That would require an entire expansion/new map file to accommodate the changes. However, I might explore this option in the future. BlueHypercane761 (talk) 21:17, 1 May 2016 (UTC)

==An error on a map==reload that page and then try again. Hey, your additions on the Syrian civil war map keep listing the city of Markadah as in SDF hands, but all other maps and news paint this town as still being in ISIS hands, with the grain silos being what's in SDF hands, not the town itself.

Hi! When you insert the last map of ISIS?

Rutbah[edit]

Salam. The city of Rutbah was withdrawn from ISIS by Iraq.1, 2 Why do not you show it on the map?--samral talk 21:25, 27 May 2016 (UTC)

Sorry, I was busy. I'll insert the newest revision very soon. BlueHypercane761 (talk) 03:31, 31 May 2016 (UTC)

Markada[edit]

You're still re-adding SDF gains in the east. I've asked you about this twice already. If you have sources to support these gains, present them instead of saying you have them, please. Eik Corell (talk) 09:05, 7 July 2016 (UTC)

Here are my sources for Markada. The SDF fully besieged Markada on May 14, after ISIL had launched a major attack near Al-Shaddadi, and by May 30, they had captured the town and advanced further southward. BlueHypercane761 (talk) 00:27, 8 July 2016 (UTC)

The Kurdistan24 source deals with the besiegement of the city, not SDF control thereof. The Warontherocks source, however, is the one that makes the most relevant claims here, mainly that "The SDF continues to push south from Markadah, outside of Ash Shaddadi.". However, the site cites no sources, and it itself is not recognized as an authoritative source. The most high-profile source that does exist for such a prediction, however, would be the Wikipedia maps. It would not be outlandish to speculate that this website, like many others covering this conflict, gets its information at least in part from the Wikipedia maps. Additionally, I'm not seeing many reports from post-February except for this one confirming the Kurdistan24 source you mentioned, mentioning airstrikes on the suburbs of the town, lending credence to the idea of the town itself not being in SDF hands.
