Tamil Eelam map[edit]

Puttalam is actually not in the Tamil Eelam claim. It used to be a predominantly Tamil-speaking area but now is a mainly Sinhala speaking area. The LTTE's claim does not include this district, see under (1/ Interim self-governing authority):

http://news.bbc.co.uk/1/hi/world/south_asia/3232913.stm

Therefore, the map is incorrect. 81.110.30.216 13:21, 25 September 2007 (UTC)

Image:Wheel of life.png[edit]

Hi! I delete the category because an image must be categorized by the tag and put cateogory:Public domain isn't need. The tag PD-other was deleted because doesn't exist. --RED DEVIL 666 21:38, 24 March 2006 (UTC)

if you put tag GFDL, you must not put it into category Public domain. It is a mistake. Call me for other problems :-) --RED DEVIL 666 14:59, 25 March 2006 (UTC)

Nantes[edit]

There is ermine at image:Gwenn ha du.svg/Image:BlasonBRETAGNE.jpg and many usable ships at category:Sailboats in heraldry. You can get a basic scutcheon from image:sin escudo.svg (or .png)/Image:Häraldisk ginstam.png. Quant à la couronne, si tu veux en ajouter une, cf. l'Image:Escudo Vilar de Barrio.jpg ou bien Image:Escudo Arzúa.jpg.

Xinjiang maps[edit]

Hi QuartierLatin, just a couple of comments on your Xinjiang maps. First of all, Image:Xinjiang prefectures template.png is excellent! Much cleaner than before. I have a few queries about Image:Xinjiang nationalities by prefecture 2000.png though. First of all the colour guide needs sharper divisions I think, while the gradient is very pretty, it's also very imprecise. I also find it somewhat misleading. Like the top region is yellow, to my eye looks like about 30% Kazakh? So who are the other 70%? Same with the lightest blue regions and the lightest red one on the left. Also where did you get the data from? It would be more informative if it was actually on that page, because your links don't lead anywhere. Anyway just some thoughts... cheers, pfctdayelise (translate?) 08:49, 29 May 2006 (UTC)

Map of percentage Welsh speakers by area[edit]

What statistical survey is the information on this map taken? Is it based on the 2001 census? 'Lloffiwr' the preceding unsigned comment is by 80.189.242.107 (talk • contribs)

In a word, yes. If I remember correctly, it counts everybody who can read or write or speak or understand Welsh, and any combination thereof. (The census conveniently provides a breakdown for all four skills.) QuartierLatin1968 21:32, 11 June 2006 (UTC)
Thank you for your prompt reply. 'Lloffiwr'

Partitions of Luxembourg[edit]

Although I think that Image:LuxembourgPartitionsMap.png is a very useful map, I have two qualms about it:

  1. On the 'arm' that juts out of the south-west of the Belgian cession, to the west of the Duchy of Bouillon, the border of the ceded territories goes over the modern Franco-Belgian border. Is this intentional or in error? Since France and Belgium have not exchanged any territories since, I believe that the boundaries of the cession ought to stop on the modern border.
  2. Prussia received their territories from Luxembourg under the Treaty of Paris (1815), and not from the date of Prussian occupation (which did indeed begin in 1813).

I'd be much obliged if you could get back to me about these issues. Bastin 14:17, 17 July 2006 (UTC)

Hello, and thank your for sharing your files with Commons. There seems to be a problem regarding the description and/or licensing of this particular file. Please remember that all uploads require source, author and license information. Could you please resolve these problems, which are described on the page linked in above? Thank you. --Siebrand 15:42, 13 July 2007 (UTC)

The uploader is user:Fusslkopp. I just gave her (or his) image a new name, because she had (I believe unintentionally) overwritten the widely-used image:Mercurius.jpg. Please refer any licensing questions to her. Cheers, QuartierLatin1968 21:34, 13 July 2007 (UTC)

Irish Shore of Newfoundland's Avalon[edit]

Hi there.

I left a note on the image itself, but it's been 2 years since it was last updated so I figured I'd drop in here, as well.

The Irish shore should definitely be modified to include the stretch between St. Bride's and Placentia (commonly called the Cape Shore), which is wholly Irish. I also would argue the town of Placentia should be included as well, as it has had a large Irish majority (certainly larger than Harbour Grace's or St. John's) since the 1700's.

As this data shows, settlement in Placentia Bay prior to the 19th century was 75% Irish; this includes the largely English inner reaches of the bay (north of the town of Placentia itself)

Portugal[edit]

Hello QuartierLatin1968 (great name!). I see some changes have been made to this image. However the changes regarding present Portuguese territory are not correct - and I'm not speaking about the Lusitanians (although the consensual modern hipotesys is that they were Proto-Celt, which is quite close to Celt...). The area grey area of the Lusitanians is excessive and the southern part of Portugal (the Algarve), shoul be green - even in Image:Prehispanic languages.gif it states "ancient south-lusitanian area afterwards celticized", in fact it was an area initially inhabited by the Cynetes or Conii (probably Tartessian) and later colonized by the Celtici of Alentejo. You should look up this detailed and sourced scholar ethnographic map of Iberia in 200 BC. Please correct the mistakes - or if you want I can do it!

The ethnographic and linguistic panorama of the Iberian Peninsula at about 200 BCE (at the end of the Second Punic War), based on the map I mentioned just above (a pdf version, with extensive and detailed information in Portuguese on the criteria used, as well as the long bibliography used to source the map can be found here), done by Portuguese Archeologist Luís Fraga (luisfraga@arqueotavira.com), from the "Campo Arqueológico de Tavira" (Tavira Archeological Camp - official site), in Tavira, Algarve (Portugal), looks somethings like this one I just made:

continental map[edit]

[1] seems to be wrong, Georgia is not in Europe. The border is north of the country. --Bachforelle (talk) 09:20, 22 August 2008 (UTC)

There's no 'border'. Different geographers have different notions of where this purely artificial boundary ought to go. One such notion involves a line running through the middle of Georgia and Azerbaijan. QuartierLatin1968 (talk) 19:09, 24 August 2008 (UTC)
Yep but any textbook since en:Philip Johan von Strahlenberg says Georgia is in Asia. There is a consensus between geographers. Wikipedia shouldn't be used to establish new theories, or push POV. Please look at this [map]. --Bachforelle (talk) 06:36, 26 August 2008 (UTC)
Drop it. There's no consensus. I'm not pushing any POV. And heaps of people think Georgia is in Europe. QuartierLatin1968 (talk) 10:43, 28 August 2008 (UTC)

Hello, QuartierLatin1968!

Tip: Add categories to your images

Thanks a lot for contributing to the Wikimedia Commons! Here's a tip to make your uploads more useful: Why not add some categories to describe them? This will help more people to find and use them.

Here's how:

1) If you're using the UploadWizard, you can add categories to each file when you describe it. Just click "more options" for the file and add the categories which make sense:

Uploadwizard-categories.png

2) You can also pick the file from your list of uploads, edit the file description page, and manually add the category code at the end of the page.

[[Category:Category name]]

For example, if you are uploading a diagram showing the orbits of comets, you add the following code:

[[Category:Astronomical diagrams]]
[[Category:Comets]]

This will make the diagram show up in the categories "Astronomical diagrams" and "Comets".

When picking categories, try to choose a specific category ("Astronomical diagrams") over a generic one ("Illustrations"). Pro-tip: The CommonSense tool can help you find the best category for your image.

Thanks again for your uploads! More information about categorization can be found in Commons:Categories, and don't hesitate to leave a note on the help desk.

BotMultichillT 06:15, 31 March 2009 (UTC)

Image:Yerel seçim 2009.png was uncategorized on 30 March 2009, but then categorized (by me) on 31 March 2009.
True, Image:Whiterose.png is uncategorized. But it's been superseded by a svg file anyway.
Thanks for your diligence, however. QuartierLatin1968 (talk) 20:43, 8 September 2009 (UTC)

Picture of the Year 2013 R1 Announcement[edit]

Round 1 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 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 are all 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.

For your convenience, we have sorted the images into topical categories. Two rounds of voting will be held: In the first round, you may vote for as many images as you like. The top 30 overall and the most popular image in each category will continue to the final. In the final round, you may vote for just one image to become the Picture of the Year.

Round 1 will end on . Click here to learn more and vote »

Thanks,
the Wikimedia Commons Picture of the Year committee

Celtic Nations[edit]

Hi, could you take a look at File:Map of Celtic Nations-flag shades.svg. The current version appears to include the Channel Islands as part of Brittany. Please reinstate your last version, which was just fine. Many thanks, Daicaregos (talk) 09:36, 5 January 2015 (UTC)

Done! Thanks for pointing this out. QuartierLatin1968 (talk) 15:50, 8 January 2015 (UTC)
