Just wanted to take a moment to say THANK you for all the tireless, awesome work you have done with all the road sign svg files in the community. You've made my model railroading ideas a lot easier to accomplish, and my quality of realism more than would've ever been possible without all the work you have done. Thank you!

Duplicate rationale[edit]

Hello Fry1989, firstly thanks you for your work :), secondly in the future when you nominate a file for deletion with the rationale "duplicate, replaced by svg... ", and that the nominate file is old (more than a few months), it will be good that or you create a redirect after the file is deleted or you ask to the closing nominator to create it after he have deleted the file. In the purpose, I'm sure you understood it, to not take the risk to broke potentials hotlinks. This is not a big work, and it is written in our policies. Of course this is normally the job of the closing administrator, but I don't think this is currently always done in the facts. I hope we work in a spirit of collaboration to improve Commons. Regards, Christian Ferrer (talk) 17:11, 1 February 2016 (UTC)

  • It seems there is no consensus on the subject and that I skipped a passage "If the file is the same file type...". Although my reasoning is logical IMO, you can forget my query. Regards, Christian Ferrer (talk) 17:31, 3 February 2016 (UTC)

Hello,

You reverted me on File:Naval Ensign of Morocco.svg and File:Civil Ensign of Morocco.svg. Your drawing of crown (with mapple leaves) isn't suitable to non-european countries.

Category:SVG road signs in the Southern African Development Community[edit]

What's the rationale for these being in the public domain? The country-specific license tags do not list any reasons and there is no indication of their copyright status in the United States. Jolly Janner (talk) 00:38, 25 March 2016 (UTC)

Oh of course you would come bother me in revenge. Go away. Fry1989 eh? 00:39, 25 March 2016 (UTC)
I too wonder why those SVG files have different country-specific copyright tags. Nah, atleast they are in the public domain in its source country, South Africa (And most of them are ineligible for copyright). We should not have a problem with this... Poké95 00:14, 27 March 2016 (UTC)
I'll clarify. These signs are from the original South African traffic signs manual and so the South African license indeed applies making them free from copyright. The South African RTSM was adopted by the original 4 SACU members (and Namibia the 5th after independence) so they were all harmonised between these countries. In the 2000s, the SADC organisation took it further, changing the background from blue to white to be the same as most countries around the world, and issued them in a new document for the SADC community which has 15 members and is a much larger part of African territory. Because international agreements of this sort are usually adopted into native legislation, I believe the licenses for Botswana, Tanzania and Zimbabwe also apply. That is why I have used them as well as the South African license. Fry1989 eh? 00:41, 27 March 2016 (UTC)
Sounds reasonable. It may be worth making a license tag for them, especially since there are hundreds of them. The current tags give little rationale. Jolly Janner (talk) 01:41, 27 March 2016 (UTC)

Correction to the Brazilian coat of arms[edit]

Hey Fry, I was checking the law that defines the Brazilian coat of arms and I agree with you that it shouldn't have any strokes.
However, I found a few differences that I think should be corrected.
You can find the published version at the official government newspaper here (page 69): http://www.planalto.gov.br/ccivil_03/leis/1970-1979/anexo/Anl5700-71.pdf
The original text of the law can be seen here: http://www.planalto.gov.br/ccivil_03/leis/L5700compilado.htm
Here is a image of the official published coat where I highlighted some changes that I noticed: http://imgur.com/slVPVEl

Here are the corrections that I found on the text:
- Art. 8º A feitura das Armas Nacionais deve obedecer à proporção de 15 (quinze) de altura por 14 (quatorze) de largura, e atender às seguintes disposições:
This says that the proportion of the coat of arms should be 15:14 (height:width).

-III - O todo brocante sôbre uma espada, em pala, empunhada de ouro, guardas de blau, salvo a parte do centro, que é de goles e contendo uma estrêla de prata,[...]
This says that the grip of the sword should be gold (ouro) and the star of the sword should be silver (prata). But according to the official drawing, only the pommel is gold.

In my opinion, the "official" version that is on the government page (http://www2.planalto.gov.br/acervo/simbolos-nacionais/brasao/brasao-da-republica) is wrong and goes against the law.

I hope you consider the changes. Thanks.

Post 2011 Coat of Arms of Libya[edit]

Hello my friend, it's been a long time since I've asked you for a favor.A

Today I'm wondering if you could do me a favor and make a version of the Hawk of Quraish, all yellow with black outline, with the Libyan flag on the shield horizontal, not vertical, a la the Iraqi coat of arms.

The reason I ask is because it is still used by the Libyan Military for rank and cap insignia.

http://www.cronacheinternazionali.com/wp-content/uploads/2014/06/General-Khalifa-Haftar-014.jpg http://www.japantimes.co.jp/wp-content/uploads/2014/05/w1-libya-a-20140521.jpg http://c8.alamy.com/comp/ECNY92/tripoli-libya-17th-dec-2014-major-general-abdessalem-jadallah-al-obeidi-ECNY92.jpg http://www.japantimes.co.jp/wp-content/uploads/2014/05/w1-libya-a-20140521.jpg http://www.dw.com/image/0,,16869550_403,00.jpg

Thank you.

--Thegunkid (talk) 10:30, 15 August 2016 (UTC)

Also Inversely, outside of Rank insignia, the Libyan Army uses the coat of arms with the proper heraldic orientation (vertical flag)

http://www.libyaschannel.com/2015/06/30/%D8%A7%D9%84%D9%82%D9%8A%D8%A7%D8%AF%D8%A9-%D8%A7%D9%84%D8%B9%D8%A7%D9%85%D8%A9-%D9%84%D9%84%D8%AC%D9%8A%D8%B4-%D8%A7%D9%84%D9%84%D9%8A%D8%A8%D9%8A-%D8%AA%D8%B5%D8%AF%D8%B1-%D8%AA%D9%83%D9%84%D9%8A/

The banner reads القيادة العامة للقوات المسلحة (En:General Command/Administration of the Armed Forces).

This is the seal of the General Command of national army http://www.libyaschannel.com/2016/07/22/%D8%BA%D8%B1%D9%81%D8%A9-%D8%B9%D9%85%D9%84%D9%8A%D8%A7%D8%AA-%D8%A7%D9%84%D8%AC%D9%8A%D8%B4-%D8%A7%D9%84%D9%88%D8%B7%D9%86%D9%8A-%D8%AA%D8%B9%D8%AB%D8%B1-%D8%B9%D9%84%D9%89-14-%D8%AC%D8%AB%D8%A9/

It states القيادة العامة للجيش الوطني at the top, and عمليات الجيش الوطني at the bottom, and again below the olive branch; I'll figure out what fonts they used when I get home.

Oh yeah, to add, the flag of the army is apparently the coat of arms in all gold, like the Gaddafi era, with the flag in the shield in color, and on a plain white flag.

UAE Armed Forces Emblem and Flag[edit]

I also stumbled on this when was researching the Libyan coat of arms, and basically the Emirate Armed Forces uses their own version of the Hawk, and their flag is basically the UAE red ensign defaced with it.

Qatar Airforce Roundel and Emblem[edit]

Another thing that has been really bugging me is this, the Qatari airforce roundel actually uses the same colors as the Qatar flag; the Red seems to be based on a erroneous report probably based on a faded flag.

COM:OVERWRITE[edit]

Hey there, Fry. I've got a question about Commons policy, does COM:OVERWRITE apply to files even if they're outdated or factually inaccurate? – Illegitimate Barrister (talk) 19:53, 27 August 2016 (UTC)

The rule somewhat depends on the reason you want to overwrite the file. As I'm sure you can see, I am overwrite the royal standards right now in order to improve them. That is one valid reason. Factually inaccurate is also a good reason to overwrite, since you are fixing obvious errors with the image. When images are outdated is a bit more complicated, as there are two options. You can overwrite the image with the new version so that it instantly shows up on all usages and then upload the old version as a separate file, or you can rename the file to show that it is no longer up to date and upload the new version as a separate file. The second option would require manually replacing all the usages with the new file though, so I tend to prefer the first option. Fry1989 eh? 20:01, 27 August 2016 (UTC)
Thanks, that's what I do too. – Illegitimate Barrister (talk) 12:28, 8 September 2016 (UTC)

Standard of Alexandra of Denmark[edit]

Hey, just to let you know, the cross and quarters should be delineated black based on the actual flag; and is there any reason for two shades of red on the flag? This is the authoritative flag being as it was presented by the Queen herself.

Also you should add a note it's also known as the "Shackleton flag", and is known as being most expensive flag to ever be sold at Auction.

Canadian Army Flag[edit]

Dear Fry1989,

Its been a while! I would like your help moving the file: File:Flag of the Canadian Army (2016).svg to the name File:Flag of the Canadian Army.svg. I think I messed up when I tried to replace the old file and it can't be changed back. Now I don't know what to do. Please help! Sodacan (talk) 02:43, 2 September 2016 (UTC)

PS I have made a replacement for all the Canadian Armed Forces rank insignias recently. I have implemented some of the changes in the various articles on English Wikipedia, but they have been reverted by an IP. Please help me keep a look out for them.
@Sodacan:, I must apologise to you, but I did not see your comment or else I would have tried to fix it right away. I did notice your rank insignia uploads and they are amazing. I will help maintain the article. Please accept my apologies. Fry1989 eh? 19:15, 8 September 2016 (UTC)

SVG flag fringes?[edit]

Howdy. What's your opinion of fringes on SVG flags? Should they be part of it or not? Are they considered part of the flag or just an add-on? – Illegitimate Barrister (talk) 20:35, 30 September 2016 (UTC)

IMO, a fringe is not part of a flag. An alternative file including the fringe may be uploaded, but it shouldn't be on the main file. Fry1989 eh? 00:00, 1 October 2016 (UTC)
Alright, thanks. That's what I figured too: The fringe is an add-on and not part of the flag proper. – Illegitimate Barrister (talk) 04:20, 1 October 2016 (UTC)

SVG Scrubber[edit]

I wasn't aware of SVG scrubbers. You say you're not a fan of them so I'm wondering what the pros and cons are and which brands might be might be preferred over the others.--Glasshouse (talk) 22:54, 11 October 2016 (UTC)

Superficially, they do nothing but reduce the file size. My problem is that I am part autistic so I am extremely obsessed with exactness in the images I create, every little point being where I want it. So when I make an image and then use a scrubber, some points here or there get moved around a little bit. You won't see it unless you're magnifying the image really high or editing it, so if you don't care so much about every little point being here or there, it would be great for you. If you're more obsessive like me, it might not be. My prejudice is entirely personal, most users would probably even say I am unreasonable. Fry1989 eh? 23:10, 11 October 2016 (UTC)

Coats of arms for HRH The Duke of Gloucester & family[edit]

@Fry1989: hi Fry! You were so kind as to produce vastly improved images of various members of the Booth family, which look great on their relevant pages in Wiki and much enhance the narrative in my view. Thanks again for these. I note that your interest seems to be more towards royalty, so if you are agreeable here is a way of combining the two! It would be helpful for the article Armorial britannique if correct images of HRH The Duke's arms depicting his augmentation of honour as Grand Prior of St. John (ie. with the Order's banner in chief) and also those of his daughter-in-law, Dr Claire Booth (aka Lady Ulster), whose Booth family arms are displayed on an escutcheon of pretence over those of her husband, Alexander, Earl of Ulster. Much obliged if this is feasible & please advise if there is any more info required (eg. blazon..) in order to facilitate this.
Many thanks. L'honorable (talk) 19:59, 18 October 2016 (UTC)

@L'honorable:, thank you for the suggestions. I admit I am pretty royally obsessed haha. I have been a bit slow lately, but I will certainly take a look at making the images you have mentioned. Fry1989 eh? 22:09, 18 October 2016 (UTC)
@Fry1989: un grand merci! L'honorable (talk) 22:21, 18 October 2016 (UTC)
PS. for the sake of order, there are four permissible options available under the laws of heraldry for the depiction of the Earl and Countess of Ulster's arms :
1. Gloucester with Henriksen in pretence, impaled with Booth ;
2. Gloucester (without Henriksen), impaled with Booth ;
3. Gloucester with Henriksen in pretence, en surtout Booth on an inescutcheon ;
4. Gloucester with Booth in pretence ;
the most accurate (but not necessarily the best aesthetically) would be the patrilineal arms of Lord Ulster (Gloucester) displayed with his mother's arms of Henriksen on an escutcheon of pretence, and the Booth arms represented on an inescutcheon en surtout. Technically correct, but complicated! so otherwise just the Booth inescutcheon on Alexander Windsor's arms would suffice (because, of course, upon the decease of his mother, HRH The Duchess, he will then quarter her family arms). It should also be pointed out that whilst he remains Earl of Ulster by courtesy, his arms are borne as would a gentleman (unless he were knighted etc, which is not the case).
PPS. qv. Complete Guide to Heraldry, Arthur Fox-Davies : The Marshalling of Arms, Ch. XXXIII (1909).

http://www.sct.gob.mx/normatecaNew/wp-content/uploads/2014/11/SCT_NIS_0419.pdf This should be relevant to your interests. I have made a set of Federal Highway shields that are ready to be uploaded, but I am still looking for licensing information within the document. –Fredddie 05:16, 6 November 2016 (UTC)

Generosity Crowdfunding Campaign for User:The Photographer[edit]

Please excuse me spamming you, which concerns Generosity Crowdfunding Campaign. My contributions cover the architecture and culture of Brazil and Venezuela. I has basic photographic equipment: an old D300 camera and 35mm lens, and it is very expensive for me to acquire this equipment. I has recently taken several images using the technique where multiple frames are stitched together to create a high-resolution panorama. However, many times frustrated with the stitching errors that result from trying to take such photos without a proper panoramic head for his tripod. This special equipment permits the camera to be rotated around the entrance pupil of the lens, and eliminates such errors. Having a panoramic head would greatly increase the potential for The Photographer to create sharp high-resolution images for Commons. In addition, the purchase of a camera with a fisheye lens would enable 180 × 360° panoramas to be taken, which are a great way to explore a scene as though one is really there.

Please see the discussion about the Crowd-funding campaign on User talk:The Photographer#Generosity Crowdfunding Campaign and visit the Generosity Crowd-funding Campaign page to consider donating. Even a modest donation will make a difference if many people contribute. Thanks. --The Photographer 13:44, 23 November 2016 (UTC)

Arms of the Earl of Strathmore and Kinghorne[edit]

Hey! Simple request really, would you be able to make an SVG file of the arms of the Earl of Strathmore and Kinghorne? You've made a banner already: File:Banner of the Earl of Strathmore and Kinghorne.svg, it just needs to be in a shield. There is this file File:Bowes-Lyon Arms.svg but it lacks the 1938 royal augmentation. Many thanks! --Re5x (talk) 12:41, 30 November 2016 (UTC)

Your thoughts?[edit]

Another patently ridiculous deletionist fishing expedition; these things tend to come in waves. What are your thoughts on this? Is it free? Public domain due to simplicity? – Illegitimate Barrister (talk) 20:39, 7 December 2016 (UTC)
