  • All your uploads are stored in your personal Gallery
  • Please sign your name on Talk pages by typing ~~~~
  • Use the CommonSense tool to find good categories for your files (then other people can find them too!)
  • To link to an image page without embedding the image, type: [[:Image:Foo.jpg]], which produces: Image:Foo.jpg
  • If you're copying files from another project, be sure to use the CommonsHelper

PNG -> SVG[edit]

Thanks for making that SVG version of Møre og Romsdal coat of arms, looks good. Deletion of SVG-superseeded PNGs has been suspended however, see this discussion. Happy editing, Finn Rindahl 12:00, 30 March 2008 (UTC)

Sorry (I am very new to editing in Wikipedia)[edit]

Ok, no problem. Then I think I should remove the deletion tag again.

You could have kept the tag, and then some admin would have removed it when closing the deletion request (I'll close the request now). Thanks for contributing, I hope to see more coming :) BTW, when you write at discussion pages such as this one you can sign by writing ~~~~ or clicking the signature button above (third from right). Happy editing, Finn Rindahl 12:49, 30 March 2008 (UTC)

Thank you so much for your help! --knowledgeisfree 12:53, 30 March 2008 (UTC)

My first work: Norwegian coats of arms (Fylke Møre og Romsdal) - vector images[edit]

As you may have noticed, I have already begun contributing as a complete newbie here at Wikimedia Commons. More or less accidentally, I came across the page about Norwegian municipalities. The coats of arms of these places are really beautiful and I know a bit how to handle Adobe Illustrator so that I have finally decided to do some work in this section of the Commons. If anybody wants me to do something different or thinks that this work is needless, please tell me!

Greets to all of you, --knowledgeisfree 15:52, 31 March 2008 (UTC)


I do not have higher resolution images of any coat of arms. Egil 05:09, 8 April 2008 (UTC)

Ok, no problem; in this case I'll try to make them as precise as possible or leave some coats away. Thank you anyway! --knowledgeisfree 21:29, 8 April 2008 (UTC)

Transition: png -> svg images for certain coats of arms accomplished[edit]

So far, I could replace the coats of arms of Møre og Romsdal, Kristiansund, Nesset, Aukra, Averøy for the Norwegian, German and English Wikipedia. knowledgeisfree 13:19, 29 April 2008 (UTC)
