Google Code-In 2019 is coming - please mentor some documentation tasks![edit]


Google Code-In, Google-organized contest in which the Wikimedia Foundation participates, starts in a few weeks. This contest is about taking high school students into the world of opensource. I'm sending you this message because you recently edited a documentation page at Wikimedia Commons.

I would like to ask you to take part in Google Code-In as a mentor. That would mean to prepare at least one task (it can be documentation related, or something else - the other categories are Code, Design, Quality Assurance and Outreach) for the participants, and help the student to complete it. Please sign up at the contest page and send us your Google account address to, so we can invite you in!

From my own experience, Google Code-In can be fun, you can make several new friends, attract new people to your wiki and make them part of your community.

If you have any questions, please let us know at

Thank you!

File:Presidio Landmark, San Francisco (former Public Health Service Hospital), 2017.jpg[edit]

I'm puzzled by your action here - the parking lot and hedge are not part of the image subject; including them in the image does not really help the viewer's understanding.

Does the U.S. National Institute for Occupational Safety and Health mandate specific aspect ratios for photos of buildings that formerly were public health hospitals? If not, I would like to respectfully ask you to adhere to COM:CROP and upload your preferred crop under a new file name.

Regards, HaeB (talk) 11:58, 5 October 2020 (UTC)[reply]

@HaeB: I suppose it's a matter of taste. I felt the wide aspect ratio is distracting when displayed in a Wikipedia article, and the crop being much closer at the bottom makes the photo unbalanced. In any case, I'm happy to upload the uncropped version as a separate file instead. John P. Sadowski (NIOSH) (talk) 22:56, 5 October 2020 (UTC)[reply]

CDC poster update[edit]

Not sure what is going on with File:Stop the Spread of Germs (CDC).png and File:Stop the Spread of Germs updated (English).pdf, but there is a new version of the latter, but I can't overwrite the file here. Since you were the original uploader, I thought I'd tell you. The new version does not insist on cloth masks. HLHJ (talk) 02:49, 17 October 2020 (UTC)[reply]

File:COVID-19_adenovirus_vaccines_authorization_map.svg and File:COVID-19 inactivated vaccines authorization map.svg=[edit]

Please note that authorizations in China should not include Hong Kong, Macau and Taiwan. They have their own authorizations.-- 08:02, 25 February 2021 (UTC)[reply]

New map request[edit]

Please if possible, create a new map for w:en:DNA vaccines as w:en:ZyCoV-D has been authorized for EUA in India. it can be similar on the lines of File:COVID-19 inactivated vaccines authorization map.svg for use at w:en:List of COVID-19 vaccine authorizations and w:en:COVID-19 vaccine. Thank you. 16:12, 20 August 2021 (UTC)[reply]

Thanks. I've integrated it into the RNA vaccines map, which now covers all nucleic acid vaccines. John P. Sadowski (NIOSH) (talk) 23:37, 20 August 2021 (UTC)[reply]


Nepal started using Pfizer and moderna vaccines. they are in emergency use. Please update this data. I hope you will help with this as I am unknown of how to do it. Goodfaithuser (talk) 17:25, 28 December 2021 (UTC)[reply]

@Goodfaithuser: I've updated the map. John P. Sadowski (NIOSH) (talk) 23:11, 28 December 2021 (UTC)[reply]

Australia update[edit]

Hi John, could you please update Australia on this map to orange since they'd approved Novavax. Cheers. —Tomotron (talk) 02:34, 21 January 2022 (UTC)[reply]
