Image:Bronze medal world.svg[edit]

I'm not even sure that this image uses a version of the correct Olympic emblem -- the rings are not shown as interlinked (instead, the upper three rings just lie on top of the lower two). AnonMoos 13:34, 19 February 2007 (UTC)

I'm just about to remove them ;) The images are not intended for olympic games but worldcups (see here) --maix¿? 16:09, 19 February 2007 (UTC)
With the new version of the image, you don't need the Olympic disclaimers. AnonMoos 00:59, 20 February 2007 (UTC)
But for image Image:Bronze medal.svg , the same comments apply -- incorrect (non-linked) version of Olympic rings emblem. AnonMoos 01:01, 20 February 2007 (UTC)
Oh, right. I'll remove respectivly add them. --maix¿? 11:29, 20 February 2007 (UTC)


Image Tagging[edit]

...

Thanks for adding the licence tags! However, are you sure about licensing images under the GPL? It’s better suited for software than for this kind of media and most people would use the GFDL instead. —xyzzyn 23:52, 9 April 2007 (UTC)
Does GFDL mean the same (concerning the privileges) as GPL, just for media instead software? --maix¿? 09:34, 10 April 2007 (UTC)
In principle, yes; however, it is focused on use with documents, so they are mutually incompatible. Since everything you write here is licensed under the GFDL, you might want to read it or read about it. —xyzzyn 15:37, 10 April 2007 (UTC)
I've read this already. Hm, it's very bad that they are incompatible. Maybe I'll use both. --maix¿? 21:59, 10 April 2007 (UTC)

Oh, thanks, but that image is just a vectorization of Time zones of Europe.png :-) --maix¿? 16:38, 7 June 2009 (UTC)

Tip: Categorizing images[edit]

Re: Medal icons[edit]

Ok but bronze should bronze, not brown (!!)... and gold should be gold... I'll see if I can make better colours --Gambo7 (talk) 15:13, 19 April 2013 (UTC)

Gold medal Colombia.svg[edit]

Hi Maix. I am from Colombia and I write Wikipedia articles about ciclism: races and cyclist.

I want to get better the page of colombian ciclism and other sports. So I want to replace the image of medals about victories on every "colombian championships" with medals with "colombian maps", due I can see some medals for colombian championships with images not related to, for example america images. I do not have enough skills to create some "Gold/Silver/Bronze medals Colombia.svg"so due you express in your profile that you can contribute to create vectorial graphs. I'd like to know if you can create medals with Colombian map like "Gold medals Colombia.svg", "Silver medals Colombia.svg" and "Bronze medals Colombia.svg". Kind regards. (discusión)

Hi. (I'm maix, this is a new account name I use). You mean like Gold medal europe.svg but with the contour of columbia instead of europe? (And also silver and bronze of course) (btw, just add --~~~~ at the end to sign) --dingensfünf 16:37, 4 May 2017 (UTC)
Hi. Yes. Using colombian map. But finally I could do it. Now I have a Gold medal Colombia.svg (and Silver, Bronze). Thank you for your answer. --Repf72 (talk) 00:04, 16 May 2017 (UTC)
Ok cool, perfect :) --dingensfünf 13:05, 16 May 2017 (UTC)
