Kaida logograms[edit]

Hello, I noticed the image you made of the kaida logograms. Where it says "rape", it should say "canola". Rape in English means "erőszakos közösülés" in hungarian, so this is quite inapproprate translation. -- 20:41, 10 June 2010 (UTC)

Actually, it depends: rape is fine in Britain, but will likely be seen as meaning something else in America. Adam Cuerden (talk) 21:03, 10 June 2010 (UTC)
Canola is also not correct, as it's an oil, not a plant. As Adam said, rape is also the name of a plant in Europe; anyway, I replaced the word with colza. Capmo (talk) 22:08, 10 June 2010 (UTC)

Cropping images[edit]

By way of information for the future, when you want to crop an image, as you did for File:Malika Tirolien, 2014.jpg, I suggest you use the CropTool that can be activated in your commons Preferences, under Gadgets. The CropTool will then appear in the left side of your screen. It saves everyone a lot of time because it transfers all the correct and appropriate information into the cropped image, such as source, license, author, etc. It even leaves a backlink to the original and vice-versa so long as the original has been positively reviewed. That way all the proper information is there and does not need to be manually reviewed by volunteers. If you are just cropping a small bit of the image like a frame you can decide to overwrite the original image but for more major crops you should upload the cropped version as a separate new image, but you have a choice. I hope you can see how everyone can save time and frustration by using CropTool. Good luck. Ww2censor (talk) 22:56, 12 May 2018 (UTC)

Thanks for the tip, will give it a try next time. Regards, Capmo (talk) 15:56, 13 May 2018 (UTC)
