That's not fully specified (how wide horizontally are each of the arrowheads?), and I'm not sure I fully understand all the measurements that are there (what exactly does the "32" vertical measurement align with?). AnonMoos (talk) 21:14, 1 August 2015 (UTC)

double-headed arrow[edit]

Sorry I didn't notice your August 2 comment (it kind of got lost amid the deletion nominations on my user talk page), but "XLzVX99.jpg" doesn't provide any new information on the arrow beyond what was in "U8YKVUY.jpg" -- still nothing on the horizontal width of the main part of each arrowhead... AnonMoos (talk) 13:04, 15 August 2015 (UTC)

Ok, with the missing number I'll probably take a stab at making an SVG in the next day or two. Not sure why the Australians are less geometrically informative than the Philippinos... SFriendly.gif -- AnonMoos (talk) 23:27, 15 August 2015 (UTC)
Sorry I didn't get around to this before (it was partly because my glasses broke on Tuesday), but now I'm looking at U8YKVUY.jpg and realizing that I really don't know what "r.3" means. If it means "radius of curve equals 0.3", then the curve would be barely visible at that resolution and the arrowhead corner would not look like what's shown on the diagram (much thinner and sharper). If it means "radius of curve equals 3.0" then I don't think it would look like what's shown either, and in fact it could well be geometrically impossible. Maybe it means that the "diameter of curve equals 3.0", but that's a pure guess on my part. I don't go reading sign specification manuals for fun, and my only exposure to the Philippines manual was when I did File:W series triangle.svg, but that was a masterpiece of clarity compared to the Australian thing. AnonMoos (talk) 15:37, 20 August 2015 (UTC)

Latest (arrow and triangle)[edit]

Sorry I didn't get around to this, but real-life issues have given me limited time on-line during the past week, and over the last 24 hrs I've been dealing with Kephir. Will try to get around to it within next few days... AnonMoos (talk) 20:55, 12 September 2015 (UTC)

Triangle and arrow for Yield Ahead sign.svg
Sorry for delay, but it's at File:Triangle and arrow for Yield Ahead sign.svg (you can overwrite it with the finished sign and rename it as appropriate if you want). I gave up on the Australian double-headed arrow as a bad job long ago SFriendly.gif... -- AnonMoos (talk) 07:27, 22 September 2015 (UTC)

Sources for some road signs[edit]

Where is your source for the files in this "Category: Diagrams of old road signs of the Philippines" in an official cpacaity? You may have seen pictures maybe of it on a highway but I'd just like to make it clear that the standardised signs of the DPWH are rarely followed. So there are at present, a large number of non-standard signs proliferating the major roads of the Philippines but they have never been official signs adopted by the DPWH. Regards. --WikiEditor50 (talk) 17:38, 3 September 2015 (UTC)

I have no official source for those signs other than photographs. Fry1989 eh? 17:41, 3 September 2015 (UTC)
Yet, I have not been back to Commons yesterday because of browser issues (I get an error on Chrome when opening Commons), but, my point is that only the current road signs manual by the Department of Public Works and Highways (downloadable PDF, but low quality) or other photos in Commons can be used. There are photos of Philippine road signs that mostly follow the national standard, mostly signs on national highways (some signs are of old design, or nonstandard, as in case of several local governments that place signs on the right-of-way) and some privately maintained roads (including toll roads, but some signs are of old design or nonstandard). Actually, some of the non-standard road signs WikiEditor50 are actually road signs used by the DPWH before 2004 or 2012. I think that WikiEditor50 can obtain a scan of the old road sign manuals in PDF format directly from the DPWH, if they can provide one with their permission, redraw the sign images as SVG, and upload it here, or send the scannned PDF's to you, Fry1989, to be redrawn as SVG by you. I have photos of some old road signs (e.g. red and yellow warning road signs, like the ones used in Sweden, Finland, Poland, Greece, Nigeria, South Korea, and Cuba), but I have no photo uploaded yet.--TagaSanPedroAko(Let's talk/Usap tayo) 13:37, 12 September 2015 (UTC)

Finnish Air Force flags[edit]

Mate, what is going on? Why the fantastic flags are being kept?

Example: Lapland's (previously Häme's) Air Command flag

1. Mostly correct file Hämeen Lennoston lippu.svg; 2. Incorrect life Hämeen Lennoston lippu.svg; 3. Very incorrect file Hämeen Lennoston lippu.svg; 4. very very incorrect file Hämeen Lennoston lippu.svg.

Sincerely, --Kwasura (talk) 07:45, 15 September 2015 (UTC)

One flag renominated[edit]

Please don't be offended, but based on the lack of source and the comment that one of those flags was (c) and "no one can use this" seems in conflict with Commons licensing. Also no source of anything was provided. I won't be offended at all if this one is closed "kept" but I do think that top line needs resolution. See Commons:Deletion requests/File:Spiguinea.jpg. Thank you for all your hard work for Commons! Cheers! Ellin Beltz (talk) 15:13, 15 September 2015 (UTC)

Quebec school zone signs[edit]

If I remember a Jacques Godbout film correctly (the film Traitor or Patriot?), there's a scene where an old school zone sign is briefly shown where the same design as the flourescent ones are used, but with the old blue-and-white colours. Could it be possible to make versions of those same signs under the old standards, SVP? Thanks in advance! --DanCBJMS (talk) 04:09, 3 October 2015 (UTC)

Sorry for the slow response, I will make the sign soon. Fry1989 eh? 22:06, 6 October 2015 (UTC)

File:MUTCD W14-1-TR.svg[edit]

I'm really not up on the technicalities of traffic-sign minutia. Most of what I know comes from browsing old editions of "Le Petit Larousse", or occasionally glancing at Wikipedia articles which you have heavily edited. All I can suggest is "Dead End sign in Turkish.svg". If the question had been about picture infographics (AIGA toilet and airport symbols etc.), then I would have much more expertise...

Yes, but now by name File:Coat of arms of Belarus.svg present wrong coat of arms. Then you should delete File:Coat of arms of Belarus.svg? And also in thousands pages exist "Coat of arms of Belarus.svg" it is very hard and unnecessary to replace everywhere Coat of arms of Belarus.svg to File:Official coat of arms of the Republic of Belarus (v).svg. --Glovacki (talk) 13:46, 14 October 2015 (UTC)

  • Ok, but what to do now? Should I manualy change Coat of arms of Belarus to Official coat of arms of the Republic of Belarus (v)? Because it is not correct coat of arms of Belarus. --Glovacki (talk) 20:44, 22 October 2015 (UTC)

File:Flag of Finland Air force squadrons without squadron emblem.svg[edit]

Greetings. We had no communication problems in the past. What happened? You ignored my message, but you standing against my case over and over again? I don't understand it. --Kwasura (talk) 20:58, 8 November 2015 (UTC)

Look, I don't know what flag is what, but as I said on the unDR page the file should be kept as a template for the squadron flags. Fry1989 eh? 21:16, 8 November 2015 (UTC)
Look, I know you can draw. So can I. So can anyone who is creating the new flags. If one need a template - he will simply remove the badge from the existent flag and will get it. --Kwasura (talk) 22:11, 8 November 2015 (UTC)
It is not your fault that a troll created this mess, but you have to compromise part way. Please stop edit warring an take a break. Fry1989 eh? 23:20, 8 November 2015 (UTC)
Mate, you need to admit that I put a lot of effort in this category. It became my baby. And I am still working on it. Here are the flags that I am currently working on. How many pages did I read? How many letters did I wrote? How many photographs did I found? How many measurements did I made before I created my template. But I can only use it for some flags (some have different proportions of the swastika). So now, when some telling me something about the «base flag» or the «template» and advocating the incorrect (white border is missing for example) file as such, I just can't swallow it. My best answer is: take mine. Use the one I created. Remove the badge and use. But don't trash the category with the fictions. Sincerely, --Kwasura (talk) 00:51, 9 November 2015 (UTC)

File:Naval Ensign of Saudi Arabia.svg[edit]

Greetings! Any idea what kind of flag is this? Certainly not the Naval Ensign. Pictures speak for itself. Sailors holding ensign and jack. Sincerely --Kwasura (talk) 05:26, 27 November 2015 (UTC)

IDK what to say. It is reported on FOTW which is considered very reliable, but I haven't checked that website out in a long time and they appear to have changed it to now report the national flag as the naval ensign. More research may be required to see if it ever existed, but your video is official proof of the national flag being used now. Fry1989 eh? 15:36, 27 November 2015 (UTC)
There are too many guesses in the FOTW. Not all reported flags are ever existed. I am sure that the reference is need to be given on the flags uploaded to the Commons, but the FOTW itself is not the reference. --Kwasura (talk) 00:05, 29 November 2015 (UTC)

Category:Military flags of Saudi Arabia[edit]

Also there is not need do depict the back side of the flag by default. People will think it is a front side. And of course, there is no white border of the corner. Shell we make some changes? Sincerely, --Kwasura (talk) 06:14, 27 November 2015 (UTC)

Because Arabic is read from right to left, technically they are depicting the front. I agree on the fimbriation, but I only work in SVG. Fry1989 eh? 15:36, 27 November 2015 (UTC)
OK, but Saudis are not the only Arabs. There are also Jordanians, Egyptians and others. By default flag is being depicted with the pole on the left. So whatever is to the right from the pole is the front of the flag. If there will be a problem with the Arabs, we can create both sides of the same flag for them to use in it Arabic Wikipedia if they want.--Kwasura (talk) 23:58, 28 November 2015 (UTC)
Those flags do not have Arabic writing on them. That complicates things and makes the canton on Saudi ensigns in the upper right corner. I'm not disagreeing with you that it's preferable to have them all the same, I just don't know if that is right for us to decide. In any case, it's not that I don't want to but, I don't know how to edit raster images like that. I am sorry but I am not of much help, if I tried to flip them around they would be backwards.

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)

[edit]

Hello, I am a contractor working on a government website. We have used 28 Agency Seal SVG files on our site. Thank you for updating the Environmental Protection Agency seal.

While using the EPA seal .svg on the government website in question, I noticed a slight rendering problem in Internet Explorer (Firefox and Chrome rendered normally). It appears the SVG is missing the "viewBox" attribute in the <svg> tag. I implemented the following change on our site, which corrected the rendering problem. I would appreciate it if you would consider including this change in the Commons copy as well.

I added the following line (terminated by a UNIX newline character) at line 15 of Environmental_Protection_Agency_logo.svg: viewBox="0 0 796.21313 804"

Here is a copy of my revised file: https://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/File:Environmental_Protection_Agency_logo_(revised).svg

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.

File:Seal of the City of Youngstown (Ohio).svg[edit]

Hello, that seal seems to be missing a "w" at the "Youngstown" part. Can you fix it? Thanks, Poké95 00:41, 13 May 2016 (UTC)

I am sorry, I don't even remember how I made the seal, it was so long ago. But I'm glad someone else was able to fix it. Fry1989 eh? 17:50, 15 May 2016 (UTC)


File:Coat of Arms of Linares (Spain).svg[edit]

Hello Could you give a hand? I don't understard the reason why the licence it is not accepted. I'm not an expert, problably it could be because there is a drawing in the article, but this coat as others are widely reproduced and it is not an exact copy. It is not a original design created in the artcicle, it can see: [6] [7] [8]. Thanks --Heralder (talk) 18:24, 26 May 2016 (UTC) 600px

Finally It has been solve Thanks --Heralder (talk) 18:59, 26 May 2016 (UTC)
I am sorry. I was away yesterday so I wasn't able to help. Glad it was solved. Fry1989 eh? 17:49, 28 May 2016 (UTC)
