File:Flag of South Korea (1949–1984).svg[edit]

Hi Pbrks, do you have any source stating the flag of South Korea was look like that image from 1949 to 1984? I think it should be the same as File:Flag of South Korea (1984–1997).svg. Since the 1949 flag law and the 1984 flag law gave the same geometry of the flag. Also, the article of the flag of South Korea in Namuwiki (a popular Korean wiki) states that the (1949–1984) image in Wikimedia Commons is questionable.--Mike Rohsopht (talk) 09:06, 18 February 2022 (UTC)[reply]

@Mike Rohsopht: No. I made the SVG images, which were based on their PNG counterparts (e.g. File:Flag of South Korea (1949–1984).png), upon request from another user. – Pbrks (t • c) 16:16, 18 February 2022 (UTC)[reply]

Remove timestamps?[edit]

Dear Pbrks,

You "removed a timestamp" here : . I just wonder why. As an ex-museum guy, for me originals are sacrosanct and should in principle not be touched (of course you did not overwrite the original, thanks). So as uploader of the image i just wonder what happened and why? Thank you with Cheers, Hansmuller (talk) 10:04, 6 May 2022 (UTC)[reply]

The removal was upon my request, as I think timestamps make photographs less useful and attractive, whereas the information is also contained in the Exif-data. Vysotsky (talk) 14:53, 6 May 2022 (UTC)[reply]
@Hansmuller: Hello. Yes, I removed the timestamp from the image. Commons generally discouraged visible textual information in an image, such as timestamps, watermarks, etc. It is preferred that that information be in the EXIF data and/or in the image description page (see COM:EXIF). – Pbrks (t • c) 14:55, 6 May 2022 (UTC)[reply]
@Vysotsky Dear Pbrks, This is a fundamentally wrong stance, at variance with best practice worldwide. We have to accept historical documents as they come and are - although they might well be "preferred" otherwise - and should not subjectively - "I think" - embellish them etcetera. Timestamps were an integral part of many images from the first century of the digital age. Likewise we don't remove the dates from paintings in a museum, just because perhaps in a later age we don't like them, isn't it? In my time machine I could easily go back to Hastings, now UK, in 1066 and reverse the outcome of the fateful battle there... but I shouldn't :-)). You agree? Thanks, Hansmuller (talk) 15:26, 6 May 2022 (UTC)[reply]
I can’t say I agree. I, along with the majority of Commons users, see no reason to have timestamps on images. – Pbrks (t • c) 18:09, 10 May 2022 (UTC)[reply]

File:Tech Port Center + Arena.png[edit]

Hi, why did you F7-tag this image? --Túrelio (talk) 07:09, 27 June 2022 (UTC)[reply]

@Túrelio: Hello. After transfer, the image did not render (two different browsers), so I assumed something awry in the transfer process. Did the image load on your end? – Pbrks (t • c) 14:47, 27 June 2022 (UTC)[reply]
Hi, yes, it did. But in between it has been deleted by a colleague. --Túrelio (talk) 06:29, 28 June 2022 (UTC)[reply]
