File:Wappen Brunswick-Wolfenbüttel.svg[edit]

Is there any source for this coat of arms as the coat of arms of Brunswick-Wolfenbüttel? Brunswick coats of arms generally have two gold lions in a red shield, not red lions in a gold shield. As far as I know, the rulers of Brunswick-Wolfenbüttel did not use a single shield on its own, but used the usual Brunswick shield together with a number of other coat of arms as it was usual in this time. --FA2010 (talk) 08:52, 20 January 2012 (UTC)

It has a pseudo-reflective gradient of the type which is demanded on French Wikipedia, but may not be so suitable for English Wikipedia... AnonMoos (talk) 01:49, 22 October 2012 (UTC)

Picture of the Year 2013 R2 Announcement[edit]

Round 2 of Picture of the Year 2013 is open![edit]

2012 Picture of the Year: A pair of European Bee-eaters in Ariège, France.

Dear Wikimedians,

Wikimedia Commons is happy to announce that the second round of the 2013 Picture of the Year competition is now open. This year will be the eighth edition of the annual Wikimedia Commons photo competition, which recognizes exceptional contributions by users on Wikimedia Commons. Wikimedia users are invited to vote for their favorite images featured on Commons during the last year (2013) to produce a single Picture of the Year.

Hundreds of images that have been rated Featured Pictures by the international Wikimedia Commons community in the past year were entered in this competition. These images include professional animal and plant shots, breathtaking panoramas and skylines, restorations of historical images, photographs portraying the world's best architecture, impressive human portraits, and so much more.

There are two total rounds of voting. In the first round, you voted for as many images as you liked. The top 30 overall and the most popular image in each category have continued to the final. In the final round, you may vote for just one image to become the Picture of the Year.

Round 2 will end on . Click here to learn more and vote »

Thanks,
the Wikimedia Commons Picture of the Year committee

HRE[edit]

Hello, you did map Holy Roman Empire 1000 map-en.svg? Why in 1000? Duchy of Bohemia was part of HRE only after 1004. Even Moravia belonged to Poland that time, it became part of Bohemia in 1019/1029 (uncertain dating). This should be reworked or deleted. Thak you for your answer. Jirka.h23 (talk) 19:16, 28 January 2015 (UTC)

@Jirka.h23: I merely translated the French-language map Holy Roman Empire 1000 map-fr.svg, itself based on the German-language map HRR 10Jh.jpg. You are right — the original German map has borders that are more accurate and clearer. I don't know if I have a chance (or the expertise) to correct that but, if you make comments on the Talk: pages (and Holy Roman Empire 1000 map-de.png, which is also derived from the incorrect French borders) plus on Commons talk:WikiProject Atlas, then someone should be able to help you correct those. I note that Hexagon1 is also from the Czech Republic, so might be able to help you more easily :o) — OwenBlacker | talk 17:48, 30 January 2015 (UTC)
Another way could be to change date to for example 1030. Jirka.h23 (talk) 15:38, 1 February 2015 (UTC)
Indeed; the original map was HRR 10Jh.jpg, so File:Holy Roman Empire 1000s map-en.svg or File:Holy Roman Empire 11th century map-en.svg would be better names, for example. — OwenBlacker | talk 20:14, 1 February 2015 (UTC)
@OwenBlacker: one year has passed and image is still not renamed? Thank you for your answer. Jirka.h23 (talk) 06:56, 17 April 2016 (UTC)
@Jirka.h23: Feel free to propose a rename. — OwenBlacker (talk) 19:57, 17 April 2016 (UTC)

Code issues in User:OwenBlacker/common.css[edit]

Hi OwenBlacker, I am a bored bot (this is kind of a computer program) that is watching the recent changes and tapping buttons like I did now.

Curious about the reason? Possibly not but I will tell you anyway:

  1. You edited User:OwenBlacker/common.css. Glad to see you coding in css! Have you ever considered becoming a MediaWiki hacker?
  2. Though, that change appears to introduce 2 new prettyCss issues -- the page's status is now having ERRORS. Note that invalid or ambiguous code often has unwanted side effects like breaking other tools for you. If you cannot find out how to fix it, I suggest blanking the page for now.
  3. To help you understanding where the issues are, I have aggregated a report here and now. If you have questions, don't hesitate to ask users experienced in css writing for help. But do not ask the bot's operators (chronically overwrought) unless you suspect an error of mine. If you prefer not getting spammed by me, you can opt-out reports by adding {{ValidationOptOut|type=all}} to your user page. Good luck at Wikimedia Commons and happy hacking!
