Your work is amazing mate :) The amount of effort and care really comes across. Thank you for making the cells and the planets far more easy to understand. Please keep it up, you're enlightening so many people to the complex universe we live in. Drjonesgp (talk) 16:14, 9 December 2015 (UTC)

Wow. I was impressed when I saw File:Animal Cell.svg, then I looked through your user page and your portfolio and saw your amazing work — and that it's all CC0-licensed. Wow. Thank you. — OwenBlacker (talk) 23:41, 28 December 2015 (UTC)

I think there is a mispelling on your diagram of the atmosphere. "Noctilucent" is spelled as "noctiluscent". Qwed117 (talk) 19:54, 13 March 2016 (UTC)

Thank you for your amazing diagrams, they really helped me understand scientific concepts! Can't wait to see more diagrams, especially molecular biology and genetics. Your diagrams are wonderful! Fzxgao (talk) 15:36, 15 May 2016 (UTC)

Hurricane Diagram[edit]

Hi Kelvin, writing in regards to It's been pointed out that the graphic labels rotation as clockwise. However, the circulation at low-levels in an NH TC is counter-clockwise (at upper-levels, the anticyclone above it will relate clockwise). You've shown all this with the arrows correctly, and the graphic is perfect, except your labeling at the bottom left of the figure. Any chance you could change that? Thanks a lot :-) JeopardyTempest (talk) 10:24, 22 May 2016 (UTC)

@JeopardyTempest: The labeling is correct, the storm rotates counterclockwise from below, but clockwise from above. The red circular arrow is traveling in the correct direction. This was brought up when the picture stood FP review.—Kelvinsong talk 19:23, 25 May 2016 (UTC)
You know, I can actually see what you're saying I believe... you're saying if you look up in the sky at it, it rotates clockwise above you from your perspective? A unique way of looking at it... 15 years of meteorology, can't say I've ever heard it described that way... though honestly I KNOW I actually struggled with quite a few ideas\equations for a while in college because of exactly this. I wonder if it's some kind of education perpetuation... or based upon dominant experiences... or brain weighting... or self image or who knows what that some people are most comfortable one way while others are the opposite.
Definitely can still be seen as a perplexing way of putting it... it would be like me telling you that you've raised your left hand when you put up what you see as your right... perspective is sure a peculiar thing. I'd say that your figure sits contrary to the way science has chosen to define the right hand rule. But honestly we all say things like "the sun rises"... and scientists still debate the "ficticious" quality of Coriolis and centripetal\centrifugal forces... so what's in word at all when it comes to perspective differences like this? I just wouldn't be too surprised if you end up with some more meteorologists (or just regular folk) stopping on by to ask again. But shan't be a problem here. Thanks for helping me understand your thinking :-) JeopardyTempest (talk) 07:52, 26 May 2016 (UTC)

'Noctilucent' instead of 'noctiluscent'?[edit]

On translating your illustrations into zh_tw[edit]

Hello, I am currently an undergraduate major in medicine in Taiwan. I would love to help you on translating your cell organelle diagrams into Chinese(Traditional). May I have your consent to do so? How should I upload the translated version into the collection? May I substitute your proprietary(I presume?) font for Noto Sans? Thanks for your response. — Preceding unsigned comment added by Tom282f3 (talk • contribs) 18:06, 13 November 2016 (UTC)

Translations should be uploaded and categorized the same way as any other Commons contribution, just make sure to add it to the translations template for ease of access. Substituting the font is fine.—Kelvinsong talk 21:09, 13 November 2016 (UTC)

Cartogram at "Electoral College (United States)"[edit]


I hope I'm going about this the right way. I have made a note in the Talk page for the Wikipedia article "Electoral College (United States)" that might be of interest to you. I don't mean to be antagonistic in the least, just wanted to raise a point about it (and actually about the political map above it as well), mostly about the captions or legends rather than the maps per se. Cordially,

Small error in the chloroplast cycle image[edit]

Hi Kelvin, I just noticed a small error in your picture for the chloroplast cycle ( In the lower right you switched the labels of outer and inner membrane. Just a small error but you had me confused there for a second.

✓ Done Wow, you are right! I’ve corrected the picture, thanks for the catch! don’t know how that went unnoticed for 3 years…—Kelvinsong talk 18:39, 17 November 2016 (UTC)

Just see[edit]

I have made a number of new illustrations, including some I now wish deleted. Come see! I owe rather more than you realize to your instruction, for which I remain forever grateful! (still... not a fucking barnstar in sight. aint that the way of it). KDS4444 (talk) 10:54, 21 November 2016 (UTC)

wait why are you trying to delete them lmao—Kelvinsong talk 01:57, 22 November 2016 (UTC)
You know how when you see an article with a photo in the lead, and you know you could make a better diagram that would point out all the good stuff, and you spend (more like "shoot") a few days coming up with something pretty neat looking, and you add it to the article, and someone comes along and removes it and puts the cruddy photo back? And you talk to that person and they tell you that they liked the photo better just 'cause? So you open up an RfC to get feedback from other editors and at first they seem to be supporting the diagram but then the balance tips against it and the reasonings are thing like "It's too cluttered" or "I wasn't sure what it was until I read the caption" but any idiot would know exactly what it was? And this is the only article for which that diagram would have been relevant, so without it there's no wikiproject anywhere that will be using it? Which means it shouldn't be retained for the sake of retention? And people are such fools? That's why deleted. Also, I am a little bitter. But that's me! KDS4444 (talk) 03:11, 22 November 2016 (UTC)
Dude that happened to me a lot I remember. some people on EN can be territorial and very conservative towards changes on “their” articles, don’t take it personally. && like as for the RfCs, they generally have good suggestions and you’d do well to listen a little and try to improve the diagram instead of deleting it uk? && when people say that a diagram is cluttered what that usually means is you didn’t use enough distinction on the “main” contours of the picture and not enough hierarchy in the labeling.
ps, i saw you are trying to get rid of File:Blausen 0864 ToothDecay.svg, I read the RfC and i think most of the editors were on your side, and wikimedia projects in general have a sort of tenth-man culture where people will take the opposing viewpoint just for the sake of diversity of thought. You shouldn’t get offended when someone takes the other side in these things, that’s the whole point of having requests for comment. btw the “readability” of the tooth could be greatly improved just by bumping up the font size a little and using a brighter color for the tooth and darker for the rest—Kelvinsong talk 01:19, 23 November 2016 (UTC)

One of the best illustrators I've seen on Wikipedia! Your illustrations are aesthetically pleasing while still being very visually informative. Simply awesome work! :) Gargamol2000 (talk) 23:09, 22 February 2017 (UTC)

Serbian translation[edit]

Hi Kelvin, I would like to translate cell organelle graphics in Serbian, how should I do so? Do You agree with translating your work?

Yes, all diagrams may be freely translated so long as the translations are released under the correct license —Kelvinsong talk 17:13, 27 February 2017 (UTC)

permission to use blood vessels diagram?[edit]

Hi Kelvin,

I love your work - nice clear diagrams; much appreciation. Your pic of blood vessels showing the capillary exchange between arteries and veins is the best I've found on the internet. I would love to get your permission to use it in a science course for a charity college. Not-for-profit, I do it as a volunteer and don't get paid.

If you need my email, please let me know.

thank you, Dianne — Preceding unsigned comment added by Dianabyron (talk • contribs) 03:32, 29 April 2017 (UTC)
